Wellington, FL – Happy Endings Farm wrapped up the 12-week FTI Winter Equestrian Festival by winning the prestigious Absorbine Stall Safe® Tack Room Award. In addition to winning a wall full of ribbons during the world-class winter show, riders at Happy Endings Farm were pleased to finish out the circuit with the highly sought after Stall Safe Award given to a stabling area that has tapped into its equestrian interior decorating abilities and provided a safe, functional, yet beautiful setting for horse and rider.
Linda Smith, owner of the Wellington-based Happy Endings Farm, was thrilled to win the Stall Safe Award. Happy Ending’s stabling area features two country white porches on either side of the stalls, offering riders the chance to relax in an attractive country atmosphere complete with bark chairs that resemble a Cracker Barrel store front.
Happy Endings Farm caught the eye of the Stall Safe spotters who were impressed with the farm’s home-away-from-home country porches that offered riders protection from the sun and rain. Happy Endings, which caters to many young riders from the age of five up, created a low-key family atmosphere at the show in an effort to make the kids and families feel comfortable.
Happy Endings offers lessons, training and boarding at their premiere facility in Wellington. They pride themselves on a relaxed atmosphere, both at the show and at home, and their students have won ribbons and titles in everything from short stirrup through the Big Equitation classes.
The Stall Safe award basket won by Happy Endings Farm was filled with Absorbine prizes, including a supply of Stall Safe that is shown to be effective in guarding against Equine Herpes Virus Type 1 and Equine Influenza A Virus. Riders, trainers and grooms throughout the show grounds have discovered Stall Safe is an easy-to-use alternative to commonly used chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, iodine, and pine cleaners. In addition to its many benefits, Stall Safe comes with a hand pump that makes disinfecting stall walls a quick and easy process.
