none of us would be able to participate in the sport

Show, Sponsored by FarmVet gives the grooms the
opportunity to shine in the show ring themselves, and
to be recognized for their hard work day in and day out.

Mata’s immaculately presented horses (Mystere, owned

contents of their grooming box, their understanding
of their role and knowledge and capabilities in
presenting a horse ready for the show ring. After much
deliberation, the judges determined that a tie for the

The pride that these gentlemen take in their work and
the love they have for the horse is undeniable. It was
wonderful to see their excitement in winning and both
gentlemen relayed how much they enjoyed their work
and that they presented their favorite horses. Lolo and
Nacho are both highly respected members of Cindy
Brooks’ Northern Run team.
