2017 BRANDON GARABRANT MEMORIAL EQUITATION CLASSIC
This class was created in honor of fallen US Marine CPL Brandon Garabrant, who was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan on June 20, 2014. He was 19 years old. Brandon was a member of the Touchstone Farm staff and an active part of his community.
A scholarship fund has been created and the proceeds from our BRANDON GARABRANT MEMORIAL EQUITATION CLASSIC are to donated to Peterborough Fire Association by Touchstone Farm in Brandon’s honor.
How the challenge works:
This class will be held at ALL FOUR Touchstone Farm horse shows this year. Ribbons will be awarded for 1-6 place at each show. At the fall fuzzy show, the rider who has accumulated the MOST points in the class for all four shows will win the perpetual trophy, saddle pad, and title of Champion. Trophy will be engraved with the winner’s name and passed on to each year’s winner.
2016 Year-End WINNERS were:
First Place: Emma Albertini of New Boston and her mount My Rikki were named the overall winners of the Memorial Equitation Challenge
Second Place: Nicole Bartlett on Kiddo
Third Place: Catherine Mikkelsen on Benevolent
THANK YOU to all those of you who participated in 2016 and we look forward to offering the challenge once again during our 2017 Horse Show Series!
