Do you know a champion?

I was just wondering if anyone actually knows/met a champion horse and/or horse person?

I have met Warren Backhouse an australian reining trainer. Also met a horse that he trained called Shiny n Nu aka Sam. I got this chance because I am friends with his owners sister and I have met his owner as well. He is a beautiful 6 (this year) year old quarter horse. He was the 2009 NRHA Futurity & Continental Championship Show Open Futurity Champion along with many other things that is just the one I know him for. He was imported form the USA his sire is Shining Spark and his Dam is Annies Nu Lena. He has the longest mane I have ever seen, on a quarter horse anyway.

I did not take these Pictures I just wanted to show you what he looks like. So anyone else?

Oh and in the first picture he is the horse on the left

I met David O'Connor at Rolex one year. He was out schooling a horse in a field. They were doing tempi changes and my friends and I were standing at the edge of the field ohing and ahhing. When he was done he walked the horse by us and said 'Thats nothing we were just practicing." We were all to dumbfounded to do anything but giggle.

I also sort of met Bob Baffert at the Churchill Downs. We were walking into the Derby Museum after the races were over and he was walking through it. His horse, Congaree had just won that day and my very drunk father started yelling "Congaree!, Congaree!, Congaree!" Bob Baffert pumped his fist in the air and smiled at us.

I had Reeco down on Sarah challinors yard for a while, sarah is the darling of the showing world at the moment, this year she won top honors in everything!
HOYS she won the Flat and working hunter championships and then she went champ at olympia.

I met her top pony Pumphill buckthorn who has now won everything there is to win in the show ring and done it all in the same year. He is such a sweetheart too. Has a bath and then standsin her kitchen tied to the aga to dry off. Gives kisses too. He is a stallion but is brilliant with little kids.



I've also had a lesson with carl hester, talked to julie Templeton, met Mark Todd.
