In September of 1967 Anne Daugette
bought Rock-A-Bye Lady who had just
won the 4 year old mare championship
at The Celebration. Their first show was
the Southern Championship in Montgomery.
The show did not go well for Anne and
Rock-a-Bye. They placed seventh. One of
the only times this pair did not win the blue.
But Vic Thompson showed Rock-A-Bye and
won the mare Class. This was the start of
a legendary show career.

One reason that the Daugette girls rode so well is that from early childhood they rode Shetland ponies bareback in the backard. By 1970 there was only one pony left. Walnut who was probably 20 years old.

Who taught MG Junior to park out??? Also, is that Vic's hand at the left of the photo?

Smitty,
Can't give you a difinitive answer on either question. The odds are that it is Vic Thompson's hand in the picture. He almost always
went out in the ring when one of his horses won. Good Advertisment!. If you remember he was in the picture of Burt and Moonglow
winning in the rain in '69 which has been posted on here before. As to who taught Moonglow Jr. to park out; that will have to be answered
by some of our other members. Moonglow Jr. was 5 when the Daugettes bought him from James K. Taylor. We think maybe James K.
had a trainer at his farm but can't remember who. One of the Derryberrys maybe. At any rate Jr. loved to park out. He was a showoff.
He loved to extend his neck and head. If you will notice he does that in a lot of the presentation pictures.

Most all of the horses back in the day could really park out .It was just part of the training process back then.Not so much anymore,they don't park, most don't canter which really bothers me and sometimes gets me in trouble with some of the younger trainers.We did it why can't they do it now.I guess because now most trainers have to have 50 or 60 horses in training to make a living.

Jr, you are correct (as usual). Horses back then were taught to park out. It was practiced, just as gaits were.

Cantering is a whole 'nother subject. I understand some of the reasons, but I do think many of the horses today could canter. backing out

MM you are so right - let's don't even get started on that canter subject. As far as I am concerned, the TWH is a three gaited horse - end of subject - for me anyway.
Horses used to be trained to park out and STAND THERE to make it easier for old fat women like me to get into the saddle. Seems like currently riders have to chase the horses to get on sometimes.

I pulled this one out of the Archives. This is Moon Man & James K. Taylor. Judging from this photo, I'd say that whoever taught this horse to park out also taught Moonglow Jr. to do the same. (?)

I notice both Moonglow Jr. and Moon Man were shown at the '69 Celebration. Were they brothers or was Moon Man sired by Moonglow Jr.?
