She apparently told the last owners she would take him back if they ever sold their farm so when they did sell, Tindle made the trip back east.

    Pretty much says it all.

    wait so they owned barbaro too? thats crazy famous in the hunter and racing world, does anyone have any pics of tindle i would love to see him?!

John French brought him back east a few times so a few east coasters might have seen him.
    can you post a pic or video of him!?

    I quickly skimmed through the pages of this thread so I may have missed it, but I can't believe no one mentioned the beautiful small junior

    MISSOURI!!!!!

    He was shown by Danielle Monteleone among others

    missouri was just lovely, I believe I was told he's a trail horse now! Here's my story, I was at a farm trying ottb's one day and saw a very plain bay stallion trotting in a field, my mouth dropped open. I was told they were breeding polo ponies by him. The trainer I was with at the time told me not to buy him because he had no markings and the judges wouldn't notice him. The way he moved I just couldn't believe anyone could not notice him so I bought him, changed trainers. I named him "talk of the towne" and we won all 21 hacks we ever did, including lake placid, saratoga etc. Luckily he jumped great as well. Last I heard he was in middleburg, if anyone knows anything about him i'd love to hear, we called him george.
