MKE working student bragging rights....

Twas only a few months ago we were wondering who it was and what kind of person we would have as our next working student.

As luck would have it we got Miss Katie Mays.  This girl ticks off a lot of boxes.
1. She's from NY so PA cold is NOTHING!
2. As of today she's an official college graduate with a 3.91 GPA - finished within only 3 years!
      --- Meaning I'm not holding her up from her studies AND she's used to expedited learning :)
3. Her and Hannah Metz get each other- an absolute must as they work and live together hand in hand
4. She smiles, she laughs, she jests; all while grooming, sweeping, walking, organizing, prepping, etc
5. Last but definitely not least she's a lovely rider and true learner of the horse.

Here's a picture of her giving Kynynmont's Cassidy a nice ride out on the Andrew's Bridge Paperchase (Cassidy is for sale, but hands off of Katie!)

Masterel ... my french bred OTTB

Masterel is a 5 year old OTTB that is french bred and was quite successful overseas, but lucky for us didnt enjoy the racing lifestyle as much here on US soil.  With the help of Dr. Arensburg's keen eye and Denis Glaccum's eagerness to see  some good OTTB's into good event horses Masterel landed a home here with us at MK Equestrian.

We have had this horse for a year and I am incredibly excited to let 2015 be his true start in the eventing world.  I feel it's important for the OTTB's to settle after they finish their first career.  Masterel spent 2014 learning about hacking out, tagging along to low stress fun adventures, figuring out this whole "dressage" stuff and quite enjoying himself showing off over fences- he's quite the natural.

This video is of Masterel at a dressage lesson with Silva Martin on quite a cold day in November.
