Happy Valentines Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day from St. Louis

The Quail Run crew will be spending St. Valentine's Day at the 2013 St. Louis Winter Festival.  The shows are held at THE NATIONAL EQUESTRIAN CENTER in Lake St. Louis, MO, and are hosted by QUEENIE PRODUCTIONS.  With nice jumps, good competition, and great management, these shows are always fun.

This show will mark the return of Quail Run's "Private Prospect", aka "Keaton" to the show ring.  After spending some time off we at Quail Run are excited to see what Keaton can do with professional Dannee Risler in the irons. 

As a rare occurrence, Tom Urban will be joining us this week for the show.  He is coming up to ride his own "Astro Boy".  Although Tom doesn't spend much time in the irons him and Astro always produce a great result!  In addition, Tom also plans to pilot Keaton around a few Adult Jumper courses.  Good Luck Tom!!

Partrice Urban is here as well.  She will be competing her own "Cousteaux" in the Amateur/Owner hunters.  Patrice rides very well and Jacques is always game for a week of horse showing.  Best of luck to the pair!

Dan Urban brought his own "Cornelius", aka "Chevy" along for the ride.  Chevy has been polishing his skills at home and hasn't shown since October, but Dan feels quite confident that he is geared up for this show.  They will compete in the 1.20m division with hopes of moving up to a 1.30m class by the end of the week.

Quail Run is excited to have Hannah DeLano with us for the week.  Her horse "Venti" has been jumping amazing and professional Dannee Risler plans to ride him in the $3000 Welcome Stake.  On Friday, Hannah will take over as pilot and likely compete in the Low Jr/AO jumpers.

Good Luck to the whole Quail Run team!!
