School Horse Showcase
Cornerstone Farm is home to some talented and outstanding school horses. They truly are the secret to our success!
Our featured school horse is "Afternoon Delight", known around the barn as "Violet".
Violet has been a favorite school horse at Cornerstone Farm for over a dozen years and she is truly a special horse.
In 2015, she was selected by Stable Management magazine as the "SmartPak School Horse of the Year". Her kind and gentle nature, coupled with
her willingness and obedience--despite losing an eye in 2012--have enabled her to become an "equine ambassador", introducing hundreds of
Cornerstone riders to the joys of riding! Whether her rider is able-bodied or special needs, every ride with Violet is a therapeutic one.
In February 2016, Violet was inducted into the USEF/EQUUS Foundation's "Horse Stars Hall of Fame" at a ceremony during the
"fête cheval étoile" at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida. Her story is featured on the EQUUS Foundation’s website,
www.horsestarhalloffame.org. You can find her in the Humanitarian "stable", in
the first stall on the left. Check it out, or come visit Violet here at Cornerstone Farm!
