Our annual Christmas party is in the books and we'd like to thank all our clients and friends for a fun-filled day and an amazing year.
From our M2 family to yours, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and a happy, horsey new year!
Congratulations to Helena Kvarnstrom on the purchase of her new partner, FE Crosby. "Bing," as he's known in the barn, will join the M2 family when we arrive in Wellington , FL for the winter season, and will travel back to Ontario with us in the spring. We can't wait to watch ths new partnership grow and succeed!
"Thank you so much to Esther Mortimer, who went to look at so many ponies with me and, more importantly, is the one who taught me how to ride dressage, connected me with my sweet Valor, and helped me finally feel ready for a new partner after Valor. I can't wait to see what the future brings with this beautiful horse!" - Helena Kvarnstrom

What a spectacular night at the Royal Winter Fair Dressage Derby as M2 sales horse Linosso was in the spotlight. PanAm gold medallist Lindsay Kellock had the winning derby ride aboard our boy and we couldn't be prouder. Linosso handled the busy environment, large grounds and busy stables like the true champion he is and we were honoured to take part.
Congratulations to M2 riders Kaylea Smith (riding Westeros at Fourth Level) and Catherine Andrews (riding Dagostella at the FEI Young Riders level). These two talented young women were selected by Equestrian Canada to be demonstration riders at its 2019 Dressage Levy Performance Advantage Symposium with four-time Olympic medallist Robert Dover.
We are so proud of how well our riders and horses performed, and how supportive all the M2 friends and family members were who came out to watch. Thank you to Equestrian Canada and Robert for this amazing learning opportunity.
