Mike Pindleton is On Track for a Bright Future with Horses

Big shout out to Mike Pindleton! Here is Mike on video riding Kirsten Jepp's Quaresma, a very special three-year-old that Kirsten imported from Germany. You will hear lots more about Quaresma next year!
Mike is doing an incredible job riding those babies. I think it is so important that the young dressage horses get out and see the world and Mike has so much feel and gives all the horses enormous confidence .

Mike has been working for us a couple of years now and he has turned into a great young rider already. He works for me half the day riding some of my young dressage horses and he works the other half day for
Boyd with the event horses .He is pretty much taking the same path as Caitlin has with us and we are very excited about his future! We believe in Mike and if he stays on the right path he will become a champion.

We are closing the cross-country course here at Windurra for the winter.  Hicks Brothers will be adding mushroom compost to the soil and reseeding the turf so that the footing is in tip-top shape for spring training. Thanks to everyone for a great year and we'll see you out there in the spring!

Celebrating the Holidays



Team Windurra had a wonderful evening celebrating the year's achievements at the famous Pasquali's Pizza Restaurant in Cochranville last night. Silva and I rounded up the troops and gave thanks for their huge effort this year.

Without question, Pasquali's is the best dining in Pennsylvania in my opinion. Head chef Joey knocked up his delicacies for the group of Windurrites and we all had a good laugh over some of the memories from 2014.

We are very thankful for the crew we have working or us at the moment. It is the best team of people that we have ever had and we are so proud of the progress everyone is making. Everyone in the group plays a critical role every day at the farm and we owe so much of the success this year to these guys behind the scenes - and of course to Lindsey Taylor, who was an integral part of our team until she recently struck off on new adventures.

2015 is going to be awesome with this team of people!
