MFTHBA Legacy Bricks Now Available
There’s a new opportunity to honor people and horses who have touched your heart and left a legacy to our amazing breed!
You can now commemorate the involvement of your loved ones and horses — or simply show your passion for the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse — by purchasing MFTHBA Legacy Bricks. To place your order visit the LEGACY BRICK page.
The bricks will form the foundation of the newly established Legacy Plaza, connected to the Roy Williams Pavilion at the MFTHBA World Headquarters. The bricks and plaza serve as permanent reminders of the dedication and commitment of the many people involved in the breed as well as the amazing horses that have made the breed popular worldwide.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to be included as part of the MFTHBA Legacy,” said Katherine Kirkpatrick Stone. Katherine and her husband, James, have been raising Fox Trotters in Texas since 2007. “We have some amazing horses that have meant the world to us. The bricks give us a way to show how much we love this breed. Can’t wait to see our Twin Star Farms bricks when we come for the Celebration Show!”
The standard 4X8 brick includes three lines of text, 18 characters each for only $75. Those wishing for a larger brick can get an 8X8. The larger brick doubles the lines available. Purchasers may also add a Fox Trotting Horse silhouette to the 8X8 brick, but this reduces their text lines to five. The standard 8X8 brick runs $150. Those wishing to include their own custom logo may do so on the 8X8 brick. Logos should be sent to the MFTHBA office. The custom 8X8 brick is $300.
Phase 1 of sales will occur until June 11 with the target to sell 500 bricks during that timeframe. Phase 1 bricks will be installed prior to the 2017 World Show and Celebration. Phase 2 will occur for the rest of 2017 with the goal to add an additional 500 bricks that will be installed prior to the 2018 Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity.
Well before the founding of the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Breed Association in 1948, people passionate about the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse and the numerous horses within this breed have left their mark. From those people and horses of years gone by to the wonderful members and horses involved today, capturing their legacy is an important part of our history. Thanks to everyone involved with making this Legacy Plaza possible.
“The opportunity to purchase a commemorative personalized brick is a great idea,” said life time MFTHBA member Tom Owen. “This is a project where individuals can honor their friends, family, and horses for many years to come,” added Owen.
