The Ultimate Gelding and The Horse for
Everyone—clearly, this horse is all of that and more. Purchased by Crosswinds
Farm from John and Linda Lambert in 2008, Bass, as he is known around the
barn, has proved to be one of our greatest joys in our experiences in the
miniature horse industry. This 32" grey horse has won his share of
halter classes, including AMHR National Champion and AMHA Honor Roll Champion,
and now he is a matured great driving horse. Trained to drive by
Tammi Nuttall of Winning Ways Training Center, he has been shown in Classic/Western
and Country Pleasure classes, but we now believe his future lies in Country
Pleasure. He loves the show arena and has that extra gear to make
him a winner in roadster as well. Shown in liberty to the music of
the Oakridge Boys’ version of I’ll Fly Away, he loves the arena and makes
an awesome picture with his full-flowing white mane and tail. He
knows when he is on stage and the center of attention.
In 2012, we put him with Sarah Kuzmic
of Spring Creek Training Center to expand his capabilities in performance
classes. Under Sarah’s training, in AMHR competition he won many
roadster events and beat some of the best hunter horses in the country.
In that one year, he is just shy of Hall of Fame status in roadster and
well on his way in country pleasure driving and halter. During 2013,
we rested him at Crosswinds and plan to bring him out again on the show
circuit in 2014.
Bass is a beautiful horse with a great
disposition and a willingness to perform. When they coined the phrase—The
Horse for Everyone—they had to have this type of horse in mind. We
enjoy showing and winning with this horse, and we want to challenge him
(and us) to make him the best that he can be as The Ultimate Gelding.
Watch for this little grey horse in the future–you will like what you see!!
