Summer Happenings

Just like the summer weather, things are heating up at Suncoast Stables.  From show results to new horse owners to upcoming events, here's an update on everything happening at the barn.


Suncoast Stables recently competed in this Odessa, FL horse show.  Congratulations goes out to Sara Morris for competing in her first show. She received two 2nd place ribbons and a 3rd place ribbon in 14 and over WT Showmanship, WT Equitation Novice, and WT Showmanship Novice classes respectively.

Graceanne Hoback rode her horse McGwire to a 1st place ribbon in Park/3-Gaited Pleasure and rode Carrington to a 2nd place finish in 11-13 WTC Equitation.

Madeline McNamara had a great 2nd place performance in 11-13 WT Equitation.

Ireland and Devon Boyle looked great in their second ever horse show, winning 2nd and 4th place respectively in the WT Lead Line class.

Madison Scranton, riding Basquiat's Emmy, received 2nd in 11-13 WTC Showmanship and 3rd in 11-13 WTC Equitation.

Hannah Murray, riding her horse My Dream Come True, received 2nd in Country Pleasure.

This was great experience and, as always, plans will be made to ensure continued improvement. Special thanks to all those that helped us out at the show!


We'd like to congratulate two riders that received birthday surprises this month. Hailey Luedde received Framed in Radiance, a nine-year-old Morgan Mare, for her 14th birthday. They'll compete in Morgan English Pleasure Jr. Exhibitor.

For her 12th birthday, Madeline McNamara leased Travel in Style. She will be learning on this beautiful twelve-year-old American Saddlebred.


Don't forget, the Summer Fun Horse Show is right around the corner! This show is held in Lady Lake, Florida from June 11-13. 

Even if you're not competing in this show, remember that summer is the perfect time to prepare for other upcoming shows, such as the Southeastern Charity Show in September or the Harvest Days Show at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Now is the time to train hard and review goals with your instructor to prepare for these great competitions.


There's now a "Barn News" section on our website. Check it out to see the latest news, such as the ASHA Junior Junction Magazine's feature on our Boots, Bits, and Bridles Youth Club!
