Amy Gumz Sells Its A Pretty Thing to The Medows Family
GoHorseShow would like to congratulate the Medows Family of Cuba, Missouri on purchasing the great mare, Its A Pretty Thing (Callie) for their daughter Giorgia Medows. This up-and-coming star is by Its A Southern Thing’s first foal crop.
Callie and trainer, Aaron Moses, recently won the Novice Horse Slot Class at The Madness as well as being named the unanimous winners of the Green Western Pleasure.
The gorgeous three-year-old bay mare will stay under the guidance of Aaron Moses during the futurities, and, then after Congress, she will head to Blake Weis’ barn to learn the all-around events.
“I couldn’t be more pleased with how this came together,” Amy Gumz of Gumz Farms told us. “We had a tremendous amount of interest in Callie since her first show with Aaron. However, it was critical to me, and Its A Southern Thing as a sire, that the perfect situation and team be found. This filly is so very talented that I wanted her to remain with Aaron for this year, and, then, go on to excel in the all-around events. Giorgia and Blake will give her every opportunity to do this.”
Fourteen-year-old Giorgia Medows says that she is excited for her future with Callie. “I would like to thank Amy Gumz for selling her to me, and I’m excited to be working with Aaron and to see what the future has in store for us. My all-around trainer, Blake Weis had been looking for a horse for me because my old-timer, Ok Pulse Me is sixteen now. I rode her, and she was just so sweet and has a great personality. My debut with her will probably be at the Big A. I can’t wait!”
The Medows’ all around trainers, Kendra and Blake Weis shared their thoughts with us. “We at Twin Acres Ranch are excited to see the talents of Blake, Giorgia and Callie develop together to become one of the top youth teams in the country. Special thanks to The Medows family for believing in our program along with Amy Gumz and Aaron Moses.”
Moses, who has had the mare since January adds, “I’m excited for everyone involved. She’s a special horse, and the Medows are a great family. I’m thankful that Amy gave me the opportunity to ride and show this mare. We are all looking forward to the rest of this year.”
