A successful shopping trip at the end of 2015 resulted in 3 new warmbloods landing stateside this winter! Finn McCool, Funny Girl and Copilot all arrived safe and sound and headed to quarantine in December 2015. We can't wait to get them to the farm and start showing these promising young horses!
Early 2016 was full of excitement and traveling to Florida and Aiken, SC! The Hassinger Team had a full fleet of horses competing, with Amy's Cartiano and Funny Girl and Jim's Sandro and Finn taking the hunters by storm. Two Quarter Horses also shone in the show ring for Amy, Adele and Jae-Lo. This Spring was a great start to a great year!
Hassinger Farm delved into a new corner of the industry by acquiring a pin hook colt by Tapizar out of Cat on the Town. The colt was young and undeveloped and the goal was to prepare him for the fall sales with the use of the farm's unique equipment and therapies.
Congratulations to Dr. Hassinger and Sandro, winners of the Cupid Classic, Aiken, SC. The show was one of a series sponsored by the USHJA Pre-Green Incentive Program. The goal of the program is to offer an incentive based series of event for horses in the pre-green division. The hope here is that it will give the less experienced horses a more interesting competition venue that will encourage owners and trainers to move horses up more slowly.
The inaugural USHJA Pre-Green Incentive Program Championship will be held in conjunction with the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship in August of 2013 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY.
Any horse enrolled in the program that has competed in a minimum of two USHJA Pre-Green Stake classes between December 1, 2012, and July 31, 2013, is eligible for the championship.
NEW FACE IN THE BARN: Hassinger Farm welcomes Amy Hassinger's new horse "CARTIANO" (Carloz DZ) to North Carolina from Germany. We look forward to seeing great things from him in the future. Already a winner - Champion Baby Greens at Jacksonville Winter Circuit!

According to Amy, Cartiano loves to horse show and she loves showing him so you will definitely hear more of their continued success in the months ahead. Dr. Jim Hassinger was in the ribbons in the Pre-Green Division on his lovely new Bavarian-registered hunter stallion, "Sir Sandro" (Sandro Boy x Pilot). He will continue to show Pre-Green in 2013 and frozen semen will be available for the 2013 breeding season.

After a busy ten days in Tampa at the Florida Gold & Gulf Coast Winter Circuit, the Hassinger Farm and Equine Clinic headed east to show in the Hunters in Jacksonville at the Winter Series, 3 different shows held throughout the month. Amy and Cartiano were Reserve Champions in the Hopeful Hunters at Jacksonville National (week 1) and Low Adult Hunter Champions, Jacksonville Winter A to Z (week2). They finished up with Cartiano as Circuit Champion at the Jacksonville Winter Series. Dr. Hassinger and Sir Sandro were very competitive in the Pre-Green Division, taking good ribbons in the face of tough competition, both weeks. Most recently, Sir Sandro was USHJA Pre-Green Stakes Champion in Aiken. Dean also showed well in Florida and took good ribbons over fences the first week.
Amy submitted a photo of Caroline, her JR Terrier, giving Cartiano, her show hunter, a good morning kiss to the USEF Photo Contest 'Critter Companions' and won third place! She wins a $20 ShopUSEF gift Certificate. Look for the photos on page 17 of your July/August Issue of EQUESTRIAN.
