Wellington, FL – The comfort and southern charm of River Circle Farm helped the Nashville, Tennessee based hunter and jumper facility capture the Absorbine® Stall Safe® Tack Room Award during the seventh week of the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival. Located in a spacious tent between the permanent barns and the South show grounds, River Circle Farm brought 16 horses and ponies to the world-class show.
Stall Safe spotters noticed River Circle Farm’s beautiful setup, both inside and out, and were pleased to recognize the farm with the highly sought-after award that is presented weekly to a stabling area that is visually attractive, well thought out in design and safe for horses. Barn manager Dominique Von Siatsky, along with the farm’s trainers John and Stephanie Currey Ingram, helped design the Wellington setup.
Due to the spacious interior, complete with a Horse-Gym walker under the tent, River Circle Farm featured all the comforts of home for both horse and rider. A beautifully landscaped lawn and garden area led into a large patio area with raised pavers, complete with all-weather wicker furniture topped with white cotton cloth cushions.
River Circle Farm plans to turn their tent into a permanent winter barn in the future, but in the meantime they have built an award-winning tent barn in which they were even able to close the sides during unusual cold Florida weather and retreat into an equestrian cocoon of comfort. When the warm Florida weather returned, River Circle Farm pulled back its curtains to reveal a tropical paradise amidst their warm southern charm.
The River Circle Farm staff was pleased to win the Stall Safe basket overflowing with Absorbine products. The prize basket includes a variety of Absorbine products, including Absorbine Stall Safe, a product committed to the safety and comfort of horses and riders by helping to keep stalls and horse areas virus and bacteria free. A disinfectant and sanitizer for stalls, stables, trailers and utensils, Stall Safe can be used wherever a horse is likely to come in contact with harmful and life threatening bacteria and viruses. It is also safe for use in dog kennels.
Stall Safe has been shown to be effective in guarding against Equine Herpes Virus Type 1 and Equine Influenza A Virus. It is an easy-to-use alternative to commonly used chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, iodine, and pine cleaners.
The Stall Safe Award is given weekly by an Absorbine spotter who visits the stabling areas at WEF in search of award winning tack rooms that have found their inner equestrian interior decorator. For more information on Stall Safe, visit the Absorbine website at www.absorbine.com.
