Sowega Scores! cheers
Ace's stud fee was reduced from $1000 (the highest at that time) to $500.
In those days, BLACK was THE preferred color.

Topic: The Jog Cart

Do you remember the first time you saw a trainer use a Jog Cart? When exactly did this become popular in the TWH Industry? Mason sez Billy Gray is the first trainer he remembers seeing use a cart. I never used one, nor have I ever driven one, but I do recall several trainers up here using them on occasion. It appeared to me they used them mostly on young horses and sometimes on certain aged horses who seemed to benefit from pulling one. Is the cart still a popular training method today?

Those carts became popular in the early 70s.

Carts are still used for select horses and my trail pleasure horse pulled a tire last year to help wear her down.

I think Dick Myers was using a cart about 71 or 72. Don't know if any of you remember, but Flip Cook won a "horse to two wheel cart" class at the celebration in 1976 with a horse named Paperback Copy. Many trainers used sleds with horses to drive them in the 50's and 60's.

Yes, I remember Flip winning that class very well. I'm thinking he won several other "two-wheel" classes as well, including maybe the Trainer's Show (or Ga Jamboree) at Stone Mtn (?). I'll see if I can't find a photo of Flip & Paperback Copy.

Thanks to our good friend Jean for the assist on this one! thumbs up

It appears Paperback Copy & Willie "Flip" Cook hold the distinction of being the very first world champion walking horse to a cart (of any kind?) in the history of the breed.

Two of this World Grand Champion TWH Owner's other horses were chosen to appear with Elizabeth Taylor in the 1957 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film “Raintree County.” Who was the owner?

No, although that's not a bad guess since some parts of Raintree County were filmed in Kentucky.........other parts were filmed in Louisiana.....

GIMME T FOR TEXAS...............GIMME T FOR TENNESSEE !!!

Texas is right! cheers

I have read numerous reports and compiled statistics concerning horse populations by state over the years. The results usually vary by year and also by the group/persons doing the reporting, therefore I trust none of them completely. The American Horse Council MAY have the most accurate stats (?)

However, several things remain constant. TEXAS and CALIFORNY-I-A nearly always rank #1 and #2.

Other high-ranking states in the past were Kentucky, Tennessee and South Carolina (according to World Book Encyclopedia in the 70's) and also Florida, Oklahoma, Missouri, Alabama, Michigan. (more recent sources)

Florida, Michigan and Oklahoma and Tennessee have really moved up as of late.
Kentucky ranks very high only if you consider total population of people vs. horses.....

Lots of conflicting data here.
Luv the new Avatar Ritz!

Kenny died when I was about 6, but I think it was somewhere around High Point.
