Sporting Days & More Competition Recap!

It was a busy weekend at nearby Sporting Days Farm in Aiken, with the C Square team bringing over a dozen horses over for their horse trials. Our two resident doctors, Jennifer Achilles and Kathleen Bertuna, led the way with each winning their respective Novice Rider divisions. These are two hard working ladies, both in and out of the saddle, so it’s nice to see them succeed while they’re with us this winter. Keep reading to see how the rest of the C Square family did!

Courtney then jetted off to Ireland for another buying trip. If you have ever considered purchasing an import, your dreams are our business. She saw another great group of young horses with promise, talent, as well as great temperaments and athletic ability. If you are interested in this type of horse or have a different sort in mind, contact the C Square Farm today!
