Lionel Ferreira is no stranger to the Saddlebred industry having been around horses from an early age. After school, he went to Kentucky & worked for several trainers perfecting his skills. He then trained in Hereford, England before returning to Kentucky & establishing his own operation at Monnington Farm in Shelbyville. Lionel is well known for his selection and training of young horses as well as amateur horses.
The show will be dedicated to the memory of Trey Prasse who passed away in November of last year. The last show that Trey attended was the 2014 Old Dominion Classic. He was an up and coming young Saddlebred star who truly loved Saddlebreds and his presence is greatly missed.
