Geeesh, there just isn't enough coffee these days.

Was the horse Gulliver??

My trivia question was about the Maclay winner the first year they tried to limit the number of riders at the Garden. I already gave a hint (or two) on that one.

Anyone who wants to guess the identity of the great ground-tieing equitation horse is welcome to do so. We could have a BIG BATTLE of wits here.

Springer! What a great mare she was. Dina Santangelo bought her from Barney Ward, and then I was lucky enough to take care of her for a few years.

MHM
Jan. 12, 2002, 09:25 AM
Fair Warning- a Traurig? But which one?

Aspen- I'm thisclose to remembering- a blond guy from the Midwest, possibly an amateur?

lauriep
Jan. 12, 2002, 10:45 AM
Dana, you are correct, but I was going for Ian, who made her famous.

Fair Warning - a "Traurig" but the person also rode her before her marriage to the "Traurig." Who was it?

Aspen - it is a female rider I am after...

PS - if it is any help, I am taking my info from a results list from 1st (possibly 2nd) American Jumping Derby.

Resources? I have none. I do not have one old chronicle, one prize list, catalogue or horse magazine of any kind in my home. I have some old pictures in a box somewhere and my leather shanks and a few halters. Somewhere in another box I have the shoes we pulled off French Leave just before we put him down... That was it for me, the last thing I ever saved. The only resource I have is my foggy memory.

MHM
Jan. 12, 2002, 03:41 PM
Unlike Abby, I have about 5000 old Chronicles, Practical Horsemans, programs from Indoors, etc., but I haven't been using them as resources! No wonder I'm getting my butt kicked!

I think those of us playing strictly off our feeble memories should get an upgrade on the cruise. Abby and I get dibs on dinner at the Captain's table.

OK, more trivia from the equitation and GP rings (thank you to WCPrncss for the ideas!).
Who RODE Northern Magic in his 1st (only?) Medal final?
Who took care of Albany at LA Olympics (84)?
Who took care of Gem Twist at the Seoul Olympics (88)?
Who took care of Irish at Barcelona (92)?

MHM
Jan. 15, 2002, 11:04 AM
Gem Twist's groom- Jen Alfano
Northern Magic- I know this one, but can't think of her name!! (I hate it when that happens!)

OK- Maclay winner: Peter Wylde, Native Surf, Fran & Joe Dotoli, 1982.

Wylde/CRAZY, HELMETS/Joe Dotoli, who was also the topic of a thread for an award he just won. Native Surf was mentioned on the Christina thread, and there was a big two-part feature in PH, which I almost knew word for word at one time.

And this was a flat-out accident:

I own the cruise line! The horse was French Leave, he won the Medal twice and the USET once. The farrier was Ira Green. He drove a Ford with Fla. plates. His dog was an australian shepard named Blue. Before Blue he had a dobie and a fuzzy white dog. I met his mother, but I do not know her maiden name.

NOT! Just friends.

We need some organization here! Too many old questions go unanswered because we move on to a new page and they are forgotten...

Perhaps we shouldn't post a new question until the one on the table is answered and confirmed by the questioner?

And in the subject line, put the question that you are answering, especially if it is one of the older ones.

So, all posters with unanswered questions, bring them back up here and let's get them answered. I'm still waiting for:
1) Conrad's other borrowed horse (Golden Alibhai is one)
2) Frances Rowe's medical problem that kept J & C around an extra year, and gave them the confidence to go out on their own.
3) Match horse to rider (all jumpers)

Felton was ridden by Buddy Brown, won the Invitational among others.

Katie also rode The Roofer very successfully.

Springer was best known as Ian Millar's speed horse and also did the GPs. I don't know if he started her, but she did an awful lot of winning with him. She was with him on the '78 European tour.

Can anyone name her groom at that time?

Left to match: Bandit, Shotgun, Aspen and Bullwinkle.

Of course, you are right, LaurieP!

However, Felton was started by (I thought) Teri, but on second thought, wasn't it Karen Peterson? And wasn't he owned by the Kapp's?

I saw Leslie's mother in Sondheim's A Little Night Music , and she was great! (Many years ago...)

Leslie's mother was Billie Burr - a fine Broadway actress. I am not sure if and how much screen/Hollywood she worked, but I do know she was well respected on stage.

In 2001, a Billie Burr of West Palm Beach, Florida was in the top five seed of the 85 yr old US tennis league. Is that her? Sounds right.

One of the vets I worked for grew up at Al's farm. She saw Ruxton at the end of his career with Ellen Van Dyke at MSG. She was amused by old Ruxton doing the A/O division because she remembered him from his early (and not very easy) days.

Threes and Sevens: From the Leones to George Lindemann.
Sedac: This was the horse we called Sprout. He came from Micheal Matz to Leslie. Leslie couldn't get along with him, so he ended up with Barney Ward. I think he was horse of the year twice with Barney. Cheryl took care of him at Fairfield.

Although this could be equally wrong! I was thinking that George Mmorrisss had flung a leg over I Love You. (While he was coaching Little G). They had a great story in last year's L'Annee Hippique about the chateau in France where I Love You is spending his dotage getting even more senile than me.

What renowned owner of show jumpers:
1) has a gorgeous former TB farm outside of Philly;
2) went from owning h/j to dressage;
3) had a very famous racehorse live out his days on the farm;
4) and really started the European import thing?

Also, name the farm, racehorse family the owner is descended from, the famous racehorse and the European import.

That ought to keep you busy!

That was fast! How many times was she champion? I was thinking of someone else, but I forgot about SS.

Barn call- many years ago at WEF, I was working for a barn with about 25 horses there. At 7:45 AM on a Wednesday, we heard KK over the loudspeaker, "C, we need KJ to the ring for the model! Right away, please!" 2 minutes later, same call, but louder. Then, "We need KJ for the model, he's our third horse, bring him on up!"

So I went around the corner to see what was up. There's KJ, in his stall, braided, napping, still wrapped, the groom nowhere in sight. We pulled him out, yanked the wraps off, no poultice thank God, threw his bridle on, and I set off for the grand hunter ring.

One problem- the horse walks like a constipated turtle. Will not hurry. At. All. If I had known, I would have ridden him up, but I had no idea. So now it's 8:07, KK is yelling over the PA, and I'm asking people the smack the horse's butt as I go by them.

Finally I get to the home stretch, and as I DRAG this horse past the tower ring, KK says over the PA, "We should be underway in the regular model momentarily- it looks like our final entry is making his reluctant way up to the ring." Thanks, Kenny!

Needless to say, when I got to the ring, the trainer started yelling at me for being tardy. I politely informed him that the horse's groom was slightly AWOL, and if not for me the horse would still be in his stall fast asleep. This was as I was gasping for breath after rushing the whole way.

Years later, I can laugh, but at that moment, I wanted to jump in that alligator pond by the hunter ring.

Marley was the one I was thinking of- 5-6 times with the chestnut in the smalls, at least 1-2 times in the larges. I believe she was about 10 years old the first time!

The horse was bay, luckily, or it never would have worked. The worst part to me (and now the funniest), was KK's play-by-play of my progress. That was extremely embarrassing!!!

I also have a story of poultice and a model, but I've blocked it out- it's too painful! Then there's another story about poultice at the World Cup, but that one's even more painful!

It's amazing how many stories there are about last minute preparations. Finals horses that were lame at the last minute, on the truck, unbraided before the jog, all the things that mean that dreaded race to wash off poultice, braid, and brush off shavings, with ten people running around. I am always amazed that a horse can stand so well with ten panic stricken people doing everything at once. I once helped braid a mane with two other people. One braiding from each end, one pulling up and tying down.
We had a second year horse at FCHC, that was in the wash rack at Harrisburg, completely soaked down, including braids when the hack was called into the ring. (JB grooming) We tacked him up in the wash rack and got to the ring!
