Congrats to Courtney Ryan & Fabulicity: 2011 AQHA World Champions

Courtney Ryan, AQHA World Champion, win in Amateur Hunter with Fabulicity.The entire SUCCEED crew would like to extend a hearty congratulations to our very own Courtney Ryan for her AQHA World Championship win in Amateur Hunter Under Saddle with home-bred horse Fabulicity.

This win comes on the heels of a 2011 NSBA World Championship as well.

Fabulicity is a 3-year-old mare bred and owned by her mother’s (Nancy Sue Ryan) Show Stop Farm. Fabulicity began her career with a 5th place finish in the Master’s Hunter Under Saddle last fall and since has been competing with Courtney throughout the 2011 season. Courtney has several World Championships in Showmanship, but this is her first Hunter Under Saddle World title.

Fabulicity is a third-generation Show Stop Farm horse; her sire Fabuluke and grandsire Luke At Me were both competed by Nancy Sue.

“It’s especially nice to get to know them when they are babies and then as show horses,” Courtney says. ”I was really proud of her last night. Sometimes she has a little bit of a hard time in the holding tank, but as soon as we made it into the chute she was all business. She really let me push her around the pen and show what she is made of.”

Nancy Sue and Courtney have kept the Show Stop Farm horses, including Fabulicity, on SUCCEED® for several years.

“We do so much with the horses, it’s the least we can to do make them look good, feel good, and perform well,” says Courtney. “Horses enjoy it, like it, look great on it, ride great on it, are more comfortable on it, and are more agreeable.”

Congratulations again Courtney and Fabulicity!
