2015 EC Breed Sport Saddlebred of the Year

Foxcroft Firestorm continues to deliver year after year! His attitude, presence and consistency definitely get noticed within the show ring and his kind and gentle personality absolutely can not be missed elsewhere. He is a one of a kind horse that truly gives his all for every single ride. This incredible 10 year old gelding by Dakota Thunder and out of Figure of Speech has taught me so much about determination, hard work and passion and I believe he has only just started making his name in Canadian Saddlebred history. We are honored to receive the Equine Canada Saddlebred Horse of the Year for the 2nd year in a row! A huge thank you to everyone who has made this great adventure possible for Caesar and I.

Stephanie Brown and "Caesar"


2013 EC Saddlebred Horse of the Year

Foxcroft Firestorm, otherwise known as "Caesar", is an 8 year old chestnut gelding by Dakota Thunder and out of Figure of Speech (by CH Talk of the Town) owned by Stephanie Brown.

Caesar has blossomed in the last two years that he has been in training with Archie Hurst of Cloverleaf Stables in Sherwood Park, AB. Always being in top ribbons in Alberta and showing strongly in the States, Caesar is a force to be reckoned with in the deeply competitive 3-Gaited Show Pleasure Division. He knows his job well and does it without ever putting an ear back!

A joy to work with both at home and at shows, Caesar is well known throughout Alberta and well loved by those that work with him. Thank you for all the support throughout the years to get Caesar to this point and receive this honoured award!


Feb, 2012 - Equine Canada Announces Coaching Awards

Ottawa, ON—At the 2012 Equine Canada Awards Gala held February 3 in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Equine Canada honoured certified coaches with the first annual coaching awards.

The first category was the Equine Canada/National Coaching Certification Program Coach Awards. These awards were for the coach or instructor that exemplifies the National Coaching Certification Program through coaching/teaching skills, concern for safety and equine welfare, business practice and support of the national rider and coaching programs. Over 50 nominations came in from all over the country from youth, adult amateurs, peers, employers and barn staff telling Equine Canada why each coach was doing a great job and deserved to be awarded.

The Equine Canada Coaching Excellence Awards were also presented for the first time this year at the Gala.  The Excellence Awards recognize those who have made significant contributions to the development of Equine Canada coaching or rider programs.
