WELCOME TO THE MAYPINE-FLAGSHIP NEWS PAGE!
October 12, 2016: Belle Burr and Rosie Fahey represented the Maypine IEA team at the first IEA/IHSA C.O.R.E. Clinic with Melanie Smith-Taylor, an Olympic Gold Medalist from the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics! Riding Otterbein University horses, the girls proved that Maypine's high standard of training enabled them to handle anything that the clinician came up with...from complicated exercises to a sick horse! Seminars throughout the 2 days rounded out their horsemanship training.
October 9, 2016: Finished up a great week at Capital Challenge! Face Value continued his winning ways with owner Andrew Elhindi, earning second place ribbon over fences in the Children's Hunter and a 10th place overall in the WCHR Children's Hunter Challenge! Rachel McMullen and Clear Saiilng jumped to big scores in the WCHR 3'6" Junior Hunter Challenge for a 4th place finish! Now onto Harrisburg where Flagship has riders competing in the Junior Hunters, Pony Hunters, USEF Medal Finals, NAL Jumper Finals, and the NAL Hunter Finals! Love all this depth and talent!
October 4, 2016: Jeff Gogul and Andrew Elhindi's Face Value top the class in the FUTURE WORKING HUNTERS COLTS & GELDINGS STAKE at Capital Challenge! Many thanks to the Elhindi family for letting us bring along this fantastic horse!
Jeff also piloted Abby Wagner's Arturo to a 6th place ribbon in the Future Working Hunter U/S 3'3 class.
September 30, 2016: Meet today's Pony of the Day: SHALIMAR! Shalimar is an 8 year old top-of-the-line small with lots of miles at the big shows, she is ready to win for her rider at the very top! Shalimar is a sweet, solid pony with the perfect size stride, a great lead change and brave, brave, brave to the jumps. Buy her now and win all year! Available to be tried at Capital Challenge 10/5-10/9.
September 28, 2016: Today's Pony of the Day is BARNSTORMER! This amazing small pony has a heart of gold and will take the most timid of riders from walk-trot to Pony Finals in the blink of an eye. With a wonderful uphill balance and the smoothest canter around, he is sure to inspire confidence in any young rider. Sadly outgrown by his owner after Pony Finals last year, he is very reasonably priced for lease or sale to a show home only.
September 13, 2016: For Sale: It's All Good, 2005 13.1 1/2 Gelding. This pony just wins & wins & wins! Reilly has had the pleasure of riding him this Summer, and after many champions and reserves, she was 2nd over fences out of 167 mediums at Pony Finals! Other notable wins with owner Elly Ficca in 2015 include first place in the Medium Pony Conformation round at Harrisburg, 3rd place in the WIHS Pony Equitation Finals, and 6th place in the WCHR Pony Challenge at Capital Challenge. This is a legit pony for the division at the very biggest shows, a great mover with a reliable lead change and a huge stride. Lots of points for Devon 2017 and on the waiting list for Harrisburg now. Very sadly outgrown by his owner, please email me for price at email@example.com. He can be seen and tried at The Kentucky National, Capital Challenge, or here at the farm. https://youtu.be/oYv2loD3WSc
