“LUNCH BREAK”
This kid right here, is the coolest kid I know! He’s learning alongside his Dad the ins and outs & tools of the trade, all while drinking his coffee black & sharing pizza with the pups! Pretty great childhood memories in the making if you ask me!

Really proud of “our” ⭐️ boys today, Carter & Dealer! We went and played in the jumper sand box at @thestablesatfoxcrossing and highly recommend their shows! @jennyy_brownn and I look forward to coming back soon with customers! A really nice last show for 2021! At least Dealer didn’t try to eat his ribbons during his photo opp! (At the last show he tried to eat his ribbon! 🤣)

One of my favorite horse shows to attend was the Pennsylvania Arabian Junior Amateur Games, or P.A.J.A.G. The first day was set up for clinics (Photographed) followed by competition. The show used to be held in Bloomsburg, PA at the fairgrounds. It was moved to Dillsburg, PA and is now held in State College, PA. I remember staying on site to take care of Superboy.

“The Games” are where Superboy and I competed in all of our Funny Costumes. The most famous being the Christmas Tree which he wore to the win at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in 2015, twenty years after I’d debuted it in Bloomsburg, PA.

So many people don’t have the opportunity or don’t explore getting involved in breed shows. The foundation of my show career began at Arabian breed shows. It’s given me my diverse background, experience, and expertise.

Pictured is one of my early role models, Karen Guerrina competing in a Native Arabian Costume Class in Harrington, DE. What is very unique about this class is that it is judged at the canter.

#TBT post of very young Nina & Superboy competing at Prince George’s Equestrian Center.

Did you know?
Horses lay-over at Prince George before going in to compete at the Washington International Horse Show. They are commercially transported 24 hours before competing and are then housed in temporary stalls on the streets and in parking structures. Talk about horse show logistics!

Each week we will feature a staff member that makes our horse shows possible. #StaffMemberMondays NINA M. SHAFFER “I am the owner/trainer of Grand Slam Equestrian- Nina M. Shaffer. A little bit about me. I grew up competing almost all summer long as a child. We were more your ‘fair weather type’ horse owners back then. I became an independent individual, professional packer, and seasoned traveler by the time I was eight years old. Growing up I mostly competed at Arabian Breed Shows. In particular, the Eastern Amateur Arabian Horse Show Circuit or EAAHSC. When I aged out of leadline into walk-trot, my parents took on larger roles beyond just being horse show parents. The EAAHSC was a true community teaching and helping others. My Dad, Craig Shaffer is an RN paramedic (35+ years at Brandywine Hospital) so he was always our designated Horse Show EMT. (A backboard was a regular item in our trailers tackroom!) In 1998-1999 my Dad took on the role of High Point Chairman for our Circuit as well as running the South Eastern PA Horse Show. He and a few other chair members created an Excel formula. They were pretty ahead of the times! Lol The SE PA Show fell every year on Father’s Day Weekend and was held at Fair Hill. My Mom, Debbie Shaffer ordered ribbons and handled stabling & entries. I loved handing out ribbons and taking care of my pony, Rosstar Superboy. Fast forward- In 2013 Kathy Gillmer approached me about working for her horse shows. I began by learning how to run the in-gate under the tutelage of Hope Wood. Over the years I’ve settled into the roles of Stabling Manager, Ribbon Coordinator, and most recently Social Media Manager. I encourage all parents to get involved and volunteer. Perhaps your skills in your professional lives can benefit the organization in which your child(ren) are participating. If you aren’t sure how to get started, your child’s trainer is a great person to ask and can point you in the right direction, or feel free to ask me directly. All of the people around you have been new- it’s ok to ask questions! The greatest gift horse’s have afforded me that I truly cherish is the people, the places, and the relationships I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing for over 25 years. It is an honor to work with Kathy and help her continue the shows and tradition she’s created, which we all know today as Brass Ring Horse Shows, but especially Brass Ring at Devon.”
