In early September 2017 we lost a wonderful horse and old friend at the farm - Tigger. In his younger years Tigger was ridden by Jodi Clark-Argueta while being Whipper In for the Limestone Creek Hunt, so that he would become more courageous. Tigger was Champion PHA Children/Adult Jumper year after year with one rider after another. Bred by the Lowe family, Tigger (Welsh/TB/Trakehner) came to IOF at 2 years of age. He lived a long, active life. Known as the fastest jumper in the region for many years. In his later years he trained many riders in the Short-Stirrup Division. He died peacefully on September 4th at 28 years of age. He will be missed by us all.
