    I was the same show age as Mary and she definitely showed Fancy Free. Maybe Wendy showed her after Mary aged out of Juniors which I wouldn't know because I went out of state to college.

    Yes exactly who I am talking about, I know in an old Horses magazine she has an ad on him, for best child rider at Flintridge. I think at some point she heard that a Kursinski had him before her.

    Default more on hunters

    My mare 301 was called in first ahead of Showdown----once- I about fell out of the bleachers- she was moved back, but that was a thrill- Debbie Nordstrom was riding her in Sacramento- again- a long time ago- Blakiston's also had another horse by Setuabal- they all looked alike- black with a white star- very good jumpers- not the longest step- i shall have to look at some old horse magazines to get the names-

    LOL, I was trying to remember if it was No Commotion or Locomotion. It was definitely Wendy showing Ace of Diamonds the time I saw him but by then it was on LI at the old North Shore Horse Show. I think Mary was on the team by then so maybe Wendy inherited him?

    What about Rick Oas's horses?

    Dad's Money
    Cajun
    Tightrope

    Wanna hear a funny story about Rick Oas? I was at college at the U of Arizona in Tucson. I had a football game on the TV, U of A vs USC. Lo and behold! The trojian guy came out on the white horse. It was RICK OAS!! I about died laughing.

    I rode with Rick a few years while he was at Haps. Go figure he would be the Trojian at USC.

    Was there a grey in the 1980's-1990's called Scott To Do? I think he competed against my (then) trainer's horse, Rule the Blues, for a while.

    Scot to Do came from Jimmy Lee in VA and was bought by Ellen Van Dyke in Wisconsin. Not a west coast horse, but still a good one.

    If you rode with Nancy in the mid-80s, then we probably rode against each other.
    Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.

    What was the name of the Haas' horse, a chestnut gelding I believe? Tinder? Tilden?

    He had a big retirement ceremony at the Garden.

    As I recall, Mary showed Fancy Free first, but she was turned over to Wendy several years before Mary aged out of the Juniors. Mary moved up to the bigger and better horses Ace of Diamonds, Sky Dash and then Tomboy in preparation for the Medal Finals. I also recall, Ace of Diamonds being shown by them both.

    Tindle - he won everything in the east before the Haas' bought him.

    Wendy also had a great dark chestnut equitation horse that I think her dad also rode. Great horse that once again I can't remember the name of. Getting old is the pits.
