Floyd has such a good seat! His father in law was Ted Bridges, awesome ASB trainer. Cheryl Posenke followed his footsteps and trainer ASB, And Morgans, Arabs. She also showed TWH. She passed way to early, 2 years ago. I still want to call her up and talk horses.
Cheryl was Floyd's daughter...

He was unbelievably talented. More than most horses and that's no exaggeration.

Here's what David Mason has to say about My Magic Marker:

"MAGIC MARKER was one of the best walking horses I ever saw. I rode over to Beeches one day with Ken Wolfe and we got him out of the stall put a saddle on him and MAN could he walk. One of the best I ever rode."

The top is Me, Sarah Manes and Father Jerry Manes. After Sarah's Equitation WC .
The second photo is from Celebration youth judging competition in the late 70's. Our team was me, Janet and Nancy DeGraffenreid And Tim Belshe. We won trophy's, the Senior winning team won saddles lol. Dad was our coach. The others in picture are Everett Clamp, Jessica Henley, not pictured sister Julia. They really ribbed us about how good they did, but we thought we didn't have a chance. The Jr team swept all 4 divisions lol They can tell how they came out if they want Razz
Dad coaching was " I bet a Red Lobster dinner, y'all don't win" At the fall MWHTA , he hauled us to R.L. lol

Delight's Syndicate as 2 year old , he was voted Horse of The Year MWHTA. A customer of Truman Volcart bought him. Then he was sold and went to Louisiana. They changed his name to Delight's Bay Boy. Dad was helping Louis when he got hurt and couldn't ride. He bought him after he started him.1973


That colt is Count Republic owned by WC Terry family. That is Ray Green on the rail. Toby Green brother that trained in Mo.


Ace's Black Elegance he was in the Report weekly because Randall Rollins would put a full page ad every blue won by an Ace's Sensation get. Dad would pick out about 5 every year at the yearling sale for Dr. Huff. He did really well with them. We never had a mean Ace colt, as their reputation was. Ace's Merry Mac, Ace's Emperor and Ace's Lady McKay. etc...


Delight's Dark Shadow was Dad's stake horse for years. He was like a freight train, snorted every step he took. They retired many challenge trophy's. Jimmy Mc Connell tied him 3rd big stake Celebration. sunny

The whole family...W.C. was always here trading horses. We trained horses for them.Stood the great Black Southern Aire. Last time I saw Sharon she had a old barn in Miss. standing High Chaparral. And showing me Marvin Wilson memorabilia. She wrote great stories in the Voice. Is she still living, I hope? She would love this site. Her mother entered me in my first Equitation class at Celebration. We didn't know a thing about it. was 3rd, judge said would of won it but had a bowtie on in a morning class,lol I remember we rode with no stirrups in workout...

Here is a cute little story about George Blades.The yr. he won his W.C. I was walking by the warm up area and George hollered at me and ask if he could borrow my hat,he had forgot his back at the barn and his class was going in.Of course I let him borrow it.Well he came in and I had told the folks that was sitting around us that I let George borrow my hat.Well George's hoss kept getting better and better.The people around us started yellin "there goes Jr.'s hat" and we all laughed.Well when George won we all laughed and said" look Jr.'s hat won".After the show George said it was my good luck hat that did it and I told him to keep it and wear it whenever he needed Good Luck.He was a Good Guy and a pretty good hoss trainer.
