Welcome to a Special Family!

Around here, clients tend to feel more like close friends. You get to know them and their families, you attend events together, travel together, and watch them grow and progress. Cheering for their accomplishments and encouraging them when they need to try again. This is why we get excited when a new family joins ours. We were happy to see James and Courtney Coughlin Makris and their family recently purchase Mandatario de Spring aka “Boss”.

Looking forward to making this a family affair with children, James and Mikayla, sparking an interest in competitive riding and horses in general. We agree this is a great family hobby and passion!

A passion Courtney know a little something about! Courtney was the 2011 Quarter Horse Congress Queen and now serves as the Committee Chair for the Congress Queen Contest. She was born and raised on a Quarter Horse Farm in the Mountains of Southwest Virginia. Growing up showing Quarter Horses, Courtney has earned multiple Congress Championships throughout the years.  Courtney and Boss will be training and showing with Spring Lane Ranch and we can’t wait to see how they do in their debut together at the Last Chance show in August.
