Moon Shadow Stables in the past has been a proud supporter of The Roanoke Valley Horse Show. Some of our farms customer's horses have been showing at this event for over the past seven years in classes such as Rocky Mountain Pleasure classes, Mountain Horse Classes, Hunter Jumper Classes, Arabian Classes and the Invitational Barrel Race Event held at the show. We have sponsored classes with trophies for this long running sporting event that supported many local charities in the area such as the Bradley Free Clinic and Equine Research. We are also proud supporters and members of The National Barrel Horse Association and we have also sponsored our local National Barrel Horse Association district 1 in Virginia. In 2019 we helped to support and donated money to Botetourt County Horsemen's Association Show in Fall of 2019. We are proud to Support such wonderful organizations and we wish everyone the best of luck for a wonderful, safe and happy horse show Season.

In Loving Memory: Moon Shadow Stables is very sad for the loss of Corina Earl Graef's horse Montana "Monti" this winter of 2015. He was 35 years of age and passed away on Feb. 20th 2015 at the farm. He will be missed dearly by all of us. Monti was a kind gentleman with a sweet, and lovable soul. He was adopted by Corina his owner, from the Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue in 2009 and she loved him and cared for him deeply. We miss you Monti and we know you are now enjoying greener pastures.
