Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – Jan. 15, 2019 – As Miami and Fort Lauderdale’s premier equestrian training facility, East Wind Farms has taken the hunter/jumper show circuit by storm since its founding in 2007 by owner and head trainer Tiffany Morrissey. The team at East Wind Farms is highly-regarded within the community for providing the highest caliber of instruction for riders of all levels as well as training, showing and selling of top hunters, jumpers and equitation horses.
East Wind Farms continued their success in 2018 at some of the foremost horse shows in the country and is grateful for all of the people and horses who made it possible. The team at East Wind Farms would like to reflect back on an incredible season and congratulate everyone as they gear up for another great and memorable year in 2019.

Most recently, riders competed at the 2018 South Florida Hunter Jumper Association (SFHJA) Charity Horse Show in Wellington, Florida, in November at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, where they took home top ribbons in each of their respective divisions. A recent addition to the team at East Wind Farms as a working student, Morgan Rosia, topped the SFHJA Junior Hunt Seat Medal Final aboard Claudia Millstone’s Jefferson.
In October, Millstone and Catie Staszak highlighted the fall indoor season at the prestigious Capital Challenge Horse Show in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Staszak earned fourth place aboard Brooke Giacin’s Shannaghmore, while barn mate Millstone and Ballendro placed 10th in the competitive Ariat National Adult Medal Final.

Throughout the summer, the team also had successful outings which earned them countless spots in the winner’s circle, including two circuit championships and two reserve circuit championships at the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival (GLEF) held in Traverse City, Michigan.

Morrissey set the tone as she piloted Nancy Batchelor’s Louis to flawless rides and ultimately the circuit championship ribbon in the Baby Green Hunter division. For the second year in a row, Lisa Berger captured the circuit championship tricolor riding Chloe in the Low Adult Hunter division. Assistant trainer Maggie Gould also earned the reserve circuit championship title with Christy Powell’s Karoleena in the Great Lakes Low Hunter division, while Diener and Gould both rode and contributed to wins aboard Linden to earn him the reserve circuit championship in the GLEF Open 3′ Hunter division. To round out another excellent summer showing at GLEF, Morrissey secured second place in the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby during Week IV aboard East Wind Farms‘ Hannes.
In May, Morrissey piloted Hannes to his first USHJA National Hunter Derby victory during the second week of the SFHJA May horse show.

Capping off an outstanding winter show season in Florida, the team at East Wind Farms was awarded three circuit championship tricolors following their immense success at the 2018 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), adding to their already impressive array of ribbons and awards. In Section B of the Low Adult Hunter division, it was Nanci Africk and Taken who notched the circuit championship award, while Hailey Berger and Lexx earned the circuit championship title in the Children’s 15-17 Hunter division. Gould and Batchelor’s Cairo earned the circuit championship in the USHJA 2’3″ Hunter division, while Stacey Shore Werner guided Sebastian to the reserve circuit championship title in the USHJA 2′ Hunter division.

Furthermore, talented junior riders Giacin and Rosia committed to Baylor University and Texas A&M University, respectively. Both riders are looking forward to being integral members of their school’s equestrian teams.
East Wind Farms was also thrilled to add Jason Clukey to their training staff over the summer. Clukey is a South Florida native who stays at the East Wind Farms home base throughout the year, providing top quality training while other members of the team are on the road. Clukey joined East Wind Farms following a 13-year tenure running his own Fox Stone Farms operation in Wellington, Delray Beach and Coconut Creek, Florida.
The team at East Wind Farms is eager to see what the new year holds as they continue training at their home base and showing throughout the East Coast. They are looking forward to adding more blue ribbons to their collection and making more memories in and out of the saddle in 2019.
East Wind Farms‘ 2019 show schedule kicks off at WEF in Wellington, Florida, and features some of the nation’s most prestigious horse shows including the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair in Devon, Pennsylvania, May 23-June 2, the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival in Traverse City, Michigan, July 3-Aug. 11 as well as indoors in the fall.
Some of the generous sponsors that are presently partnered with East Wind Farms include the Riders Boutique, CWD, Ruespari, Choice of Champions and Hallway Feeds.
