San Up Farm


My heart is very heavy with the passing of Cas Bars MissPrint. AQHA /APHA April 8, 1992 -- Jan 21, 2020 She was the most amazing horse I've ever had to opportunity to ride. I am so grateful for the wonderful memories and experiences she provided me and my family for 27 years. She was one of a kind and can never be replaced in my heart. THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart. Kelly Sapp of San Up Farm For giving me and Casey our start.. You helped us accomplish things I never imagined I could do.
Shoutout to San Up Farm family!!! Thank you all for impressing us into your show family. It’s been a long time since we’ve been at a barn that truly works together for the better of the whole team. It sure makes those 100 degree weekends more enjoyable. Love you guys!! If I didn’t tag you, I’m sorry lol. This includes you all.
Thank you Kelly, Again, for helping my student from Norway, Gina, become a better reining rider! You have helped ALL my students so much through the years and made them successful!! We consider you an amazing teacher and trainer!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
NC National Tree Hang in there
