Don’t be afraid to Dream Big – Two Major Announcements!

Oonagh Kennedy has big plans, even bigger dreams and the ability to execute as anyone at the Youngster Stars Tour and Winter Stars Tour this weekend at The Meadows Equestrian Centre found out. What an event. We were delighted to join the tour with Sarah Darker representing our team.

Surely you take a break after an eventful few weeks and a top-notch event. No, not if you are Oonagh Kennedy. We reached out to Oonagh on Sunday to ask her to join us on a Livestream about the amazing event this past weekend, Oonagh said come back to me Tuesday, we’ll have a lot to talk about.

She wasn’t kidding!!! A huge announcement was made yesterday. It started with the exciting news that the grassroots community will love… the launch of The Baby Stars Tour.

“We will be launching a new class on the Winter Stars Tour in the coming week, called The Baby Stars”. Big news today! After a wonderful weekendย @themecniย we now move forward with another phase of our Tour Planโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰
