    When was Black Sabbath around? My trainer rode a Black Sabbath when she trained with Leslie Figge, I think she did the childrens on him.

    Wow, what memories! I remeber all those horses, as alot were my competition. Remember Annalises little quarter horse American Express? He was awesome! I bet almost all of those great hunters mentioned were TBs too.

    That was Lindy Patrick's "No Commotion", and I remember Mary Mairs' showing Ace of Diamonds. I don't remember Wendy showing him. I remember Wendy mostly showing Fancy Free.

    Also not to be forgotten from the 50's and early 60's were:

    Mousie showing Above Reproach

    Mary Mairs' Sky Dash

    Jimmy showing Short Day and All Mio (yes, she was a hunter before she was a jumper) and Silver Foot

    Barbara Worth's Proud Serde and Debated Issue

    and my horse, Easter V

    Default hunters from the west coast

    Does any one remember Mississippi Mud? Bavaria was ridden by Brad Laird before she was sold. Doubletake used to be in John Turner's barn. I owned the mare 301 that competed on the west coast. Jeff Cook's What's up Doc was also a nice horse- I shall have to look at old programs to remember more!!! It was a long time ago!!!!! (Iam old )

    I'm assuming we're talking about Erika Barron's Black Sabbath, who would have been early/mid 80's and was very dominant in the 3' divisions. They were an amazingly consistent pair.
