A Grand Showing
Skywalker Stables, a local barn out of Busti, made a grand showing in the World Friesian Champion Competition from Sept. 29 to Oct. 3 in Springville, Ohio. After four months of stringent preparation, months of fundraising and the generosity of sponsorships, five students from Skywalker Stables won events at the World Competition. Tracy Erickson, owner and trainer of Skywalker Stables, worked and trained with each student. Tracy thanked all of the sponsors including Kelly Zandi, who offered her Friesian horse, Rogue, to be a participant in the show. From Skywalker Stables: Tatum Erickson, Caidence Rapp, Addie McGhee and Brooke Barney all won Grand Championships in their divisions. Riley Stump won Reserve Grand Champion in her division.
