             The GRHC has a lot of talent on our board of directors. Two people in particular that have that have that talent is our current President, Dan Dali Haber and fellow board member Tim Dali, owners of  Mountain View Training Center in Granby, MA.

              After beginning a few years ago in South Hadley MA and moving to its current beautiful facility in Granby, MA in 2010, the center has grown and become a highly regarded and respected equestrian business. The GRHC would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them and highlight their success and many accomplishments. 

          Through Dan’s expertise and hard work, Mountain View Training Center has flourished and become one of the best in the area. It has become a true, full service facility providing lessons, boarding, and training in a wide variety of disciplines such as main ring hunter under saddle, saddle seat, western pleasure, dressage, and driving. They also specialize in Friesian horses and a Gypsy Vanner horses and have several of these special horses in their stable, many with impeccable show records. 

          During the 2016 show season they had a particularly great year.  For example,   one of their Friesians, “Berentje”, was named World Champion Friesian Country Driving Horse  at the IFSHA (International Friesian World Association)  show and Champion Friesian Driving Horse at the NEFHC (Northeast Friesian Horse Club) show.  Berentje also won many championships at other national and regional shows.  Then “Dannick” another one of their Friesians was named World Champion Friesian Hunter Pleasure Horse at the IFSHA show.  Dannick has also won at many other shows. Many of their students with other horses belonging to Mountain View Training Center have also proven to be champions. Congratulations Tim and Dan. We are very proud of you.

          Finally, with all their  accomplishments, Dan and Tim have still found the time to help the GRHC whenever they can by managing our own annual GRHC Open Show last year and some years before and helping in other ways. Thank you both!! 

So hats off to GRHC Board Members, Dan Dali Haber & Tim Dali of Mountain View Training Center   

GRHC board members Dan Dali Haber and Tim Dali


          Jen Moreau is another GRHC board member that has a great many talents and has been an active volunteer for the GRHC too.  In addition to being a talented riding instructor, she has volunteered for the GRHC at many events, running some of them over the past years. The Lithia  Springs ride that we hosted last year in August was all thanks to Jen and her family.  This year she has volunteered to organize a new event,  GRHC’s new Competitive Trail Ride and Poker Ride in September (See Calendar Page)

     Right now, Jen is still recovering from some recent surgery but is getting better every day.  So the GRHC sends best wishes for a speedy recovery to Jen Moreau and our sincere appreciation for everything thing she has done for us.  She expects to be back in the saddle and on the trails soon. So welcome her back when you see her.


GRHC wishes a speedy recovery to board member Jen Moreau
