Alford Stables Joins the 2015 Stallion Tour as a Host Barn
Alford Stables has supported and participated in the MFT Stallion Tour since it began in 2012. Their involvement expands from being a stallion owner to host barn in 2015. “We are very excited to have Alford Stables serve as one of our host barns this year,” said Amber Wilson, Stallion Tour committee member. “JoAnn Alford approached us in 2013 about the Stallion Tour using their amazing facility in 2015. We told her we would love to have Alford Stables as a host.” Sadly, Mrs. Alford passed away in 2014.
“We are excited to feature the facilities of this long established Missouri Fox Trotting Horse breeding program during 2015 and to honor MFTHBA Hall of Famer, JoAnn Alford, at the same time. I think Tour attendees will enjoy seeing the facilities,” added Ms. Wilson.
The Alford Stables facilities offers the perfect location to showcase participating Stallion Tour stallions with an open arena for demonstrations and comfortable stalls for visiting stallions.
The Alford Stables website offers this overview of their breeding operation:
“Alford Stables has been in the Missouri Fox Trotting horse business for over 40 years. We are conveniently located in the heart of Fox Trotting country in Buffalo, Missouri, approximately 30 miles north of Springfield just off US Highway 65. We offer show, breeding and trail horses for sale and have an impeccable lineup of breeding stallions. The quality of our horses is second to none. Our horses are intelligent, willing athletes who will serve you well whatever your needs. They have been successful in the show ring, have excelled on the trail, appeared in the Tournament of Roses Parade and served as therapeutic riding horse for the physically challenged. You really need to come and see them to fully appreciate our horses.”
