Millbrook Farms enjoyed another milestone this weekend where our USDF Medals and Freestyle Bars count went to 30!  We earned a complete set of musical freestyle bars at Sage Creek Equestrian's Dressage Show over July 22-23.  Evan Hills earned his Gold Freestyle Bar.  Andrea Lewis earned her Silver Freestyle Bar.  Melanie Muirbrook earned her Bronze Freestyle Bar.  Congratulations to you all.  What a commitment to excellence and hard work.  Well done!!

Our own Evan Hills and Megabucks become one of Utah's youngest riders to earn their Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals!  (Photo courtesy of Donnette Hicks.)  At our Summer Dressage Festival Evan and Megabucks got their final score to become winners of all three USDF medals.  Evan has brought Megabucks all the way up from Training Level to Grand Prix.  We are so proud of this accomplishment, which they have done in their 8 years together.  Fantastic achievement!  

Millbrook sadly says adieu to Bellini, ISR Mare by Bolivar.  December 23, 2016 Tasha Coleman lost her beloved mare Peaches.  She was third generation product of the Oldenburg breeding program at Millbrook Farms.  She earned her adult amateur owner, Tasha, all three of her USDF musical freestyle bars and scores up to 72% at Grand Prix in the freestyle.  This was Tasha's second horse that she took all the way up the levels.  At the time of her death, Peaches was in foal to First Class and the baby was highly anticipated because of the cross between a talented Grand Prix level dressage horse and a Bundeschampion stallion.  Our hearts are broken, but we are all grateful for the accomplishments of this super talented horse.  Fond farewell Peach.
