    From awhile ago:
    Ruxton
    San Felipe
    Riot Free
    Touch the Sun
    Terra Cotta
    Henry the Hawk
    Circuit Breaker

    I have no pictures, or their winnings, but each was one of the top regular working hunters of their time.

    Not so up on ponies, but some top winners were:
    Dresden
    Chantilly
    Southern Gray
    Snow Goose
    Farnley Blue Chip

    I can chime in with some old timers.

    Pikes Peak, Not Always, Cap and Gown, Old Dominion, Duke of Paeone (I have butchered the spelling. Perhaps some other old timers can help me out on this one -- He was my dream horse when I was a little kid), Vim, anything ridden by Dave Kelly -- Royal Reveler comes to mind but there are many more.

    I have no old pictures, but if you find some, don't be surprised if these wonderful horses are not using their front ends like the hunters of today do. They galloped on and jumped much more across the jump, as opposed to getting deep and curling around it. So they look flat and their front ends are only marginal by today's criteria.

    Then, more recently there were the wonderful horses like Stocking Stuffer, Weather Permitting, Super Flash, Sutton Place, Madison Avenue, Spindletop Showdown, Captain Flash and anything owned by Cismont Manor.

    I will let the younger generation list the more modern ones.

    There is at leat one old thread on ponies of the past which will list many, many names.

    Sam, LHU and I were speaking of "yesteryear." I'm sure the young folks will bring those names up.

    Pam, it is Duke of Paeonian! I knew you would come through with the ones from a few years before mine!

    Also, I only listed working horses, not conformation. Another would be Balalaika.

    (Spindletop) Showdown (was shown both with and without the Spindletop prefix), listed by LH, is the one that immediately came to my mind.

    "Sign the Card" and "Valhalla" are two others that come to mind that have not yet been named.

    LH- was Royal Reveler a Tanrakin horse? The name seems to ring THAT bell for me.

    If you decide to write about Snow Goose, I can get pictures for you or ask his owner questions for you if you would like.
