2 Major Announcements!!

First and foremost our uber talented Mr. Joel Kiesner won the highly prestigious 2016 C.J. June Cronan Jr. Trophy, awarded by The United States Equestrian Federation!! This is a really amazing award to win and we are so thrilled that Joel will receive the award on Friday evening, January 13th in Lexington, KY. at the USEF awards dinner.

By Joel winning this award he is then nominated for the 2016 Equestrian of the Year! Since this was an Olympics year, the award usually goes to a gold medal winner, but hay! How cool is it to be nominated amongst the industry’s top Equestrians!! I have attached a link if you would like to vote for the 2016 Equestrian of the Year! Congratulations Joel, truly a fantastic and special award to receive!!! I think I can speak for everyone how proud we are of your history of dedication and hard work and the never ending pursuit to be better in everything you do.

My next super exciting announcement; I am very excited to officially tell you that Hews Oldham has joined Team Kiesner!!! Hews has grown up riding Arabian English horses and at the tender age of 20 already has 2 National Championships, 1 Reserve Championship, and close to 20 Top Tens. We are really looking forward to the addition of his youth and talents to continue the Team Kiesner enthusiasm and winning ways!!!!

Don’t worry, Chance McDaniel is not going anywhere, the four of us will all work together to strengthen our program and continue to bring the best in training, breeding, sales and care for the horse and rider!

Happy New Year to everyone! Joel and I wish you Health and Happiness in 2017!!!
