    For all of you walking encyclopedias of useless horse show trivia, this thread will give you a chance to show off your knowledge. Please make sure your answer is in the form of a question. Successful respondents with the correct answer(s) feel free to pose new questions.

    1) Hugely successful bay gelding out of Cismont Manor with numerous national titles and wins indoors in the regular working division in the '70's - owner, from the midwest, was also successful in the a/o's and attended Sweet Briar College.

    2) Ultra cute palamino with many wins in the '70's in the a/o's at the best A shows on the east coast, including Devon. Shown by a now R judge who still competes in the adults and a/o's.

    but one hugely successful bay gelding from Cismont Manor that went on to the A/O's was RUXTON, but I don't think that Ellen ever attended Sweet Briar and it would have been the late seventies, early eighties. Sorry that I did not phrase that in a question Alex. Get over it.

    Don't get testy Schmoe, you'll still get partial credit despite the improper phrasing! LOL Yes, you are correct - Ruxton. Then owner was Eve Baskowitz who did attend Sweet Briar.

    3) Very successful grey gelding in the '70's in the regular working division, owned by parents of woman who also showed War Dress and is now married to one of the nicer horse show managers in the south.

    And who said she was just a successful adult jumper rider destined to overtake Moesha in that last minute points drive! Correct, MargaretF! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    4) Winning bay large junior in the '70's on the east coast in zone 3 and at indoors, ridden by one of the few male junior riders who recently made a comeback in the jumpers and was on the cover of Practical Horseman.

    5) To die for small palamino pony out of Pennsylvania, winner in the AHSA pony finals in the '70's; shown by very successful catch rider now a pro in NC. Bonus points if you can name BOTH of the two small ponies out of that barn.

    I think this one is tough -- the name of the child who originally owned the pony "Even Gamble."

    Hint: she was from Maryland.

    Double points -- what was the name of the girl's other pony?

    Hint: it was a large.

    Alison Firestone, Shelia Motley and Lizzie Taylor - IC Blue Shadow.

    I can't think of a pony that Liza, Paige and Shelia all had.

    SHelia had Glenmore Sally, IC Blue Shadow, Foxlair's Fascination, Rain Goose and rode TRendsetter for the Stoppers...she also rode a few for Ashmont along the way....

    Paige Johnson, Cody Baird and Lisa Marie Eisinger all had Himself the Elf...not sure is Liza had him or not.

    I don't think Shelia had that pony. Am I wrong?

    (4) Fred Bauer, but I don't know the horse's name! I'm thinking Dillon, but I think that was Michael Sasso's horse...
