The MFT Stallion Tour recently received this feedback from Sandy and Rick Gramkowski of Belvidere, Illinois. Mr. and Mrs. Gramkowski attended the 2013 MFT Stallion Tour and wanted to provide their thoughts and comments on the event. The Stallion Tour Committee appreciates all the feedback we have received from stallion owners and attendees. We look forward to making the 2015 MFT Stallion Tour even better.
“We live in the Chicago area and both my husband (a non-horse person) and I travelled to Springfield, MO for the 2013 Missouri Fox Trotter Stallion Tour. The Stallion Tour was the most well-organized and informative horse event I have ever attended; every detail was meticulously planned. I coordinate corporate events for my company and the MFT group knocked the ball out of the park!
At check-in we received an amazing gift bag, were provided refreshments, and greeted by a friendly staff that introduced themselves and answered questions. The itinerary was well thought out giving enough time at each barn to talk with the stallion owners, allowing us the opportunity to get up close to the stallions, and to socialize with the other participants. Upon arriving at each barn, we immediately felt like family. The barn owners were warm, welcoming, and eager to make our visit memorable. Each barn was spacious and beautiful which provided for an enjoyable, relaxed atmosphere. Some stallions were ridden while others were shown in hand. The stallions not on the tour were showcased via narrated video on the bus while travelling between the different barns. We had an amazing time and learned a great deal more about the MFT breed.
Our sincere appreciation goes out to everyone involved in the event as they did a spectacular job! We met some of the finest people involved with the breed and for that, we will be eternally grateful. During the event, my husband continued to say what a great time he was having and how awesome the MFT family is. We cannot wait to attend the next Stallion Tour!”
