8/12/17 1967 A snapshot from half a century ago. Part 2

This post will finish up the year in review for 1967.  July through December issues of Saddle & Bridle magazine feature some amazing Saddlebreds from half a century ago.

July had some well known show horses.  The front cover was a Walking Horse, so I used the back cover.  Art Simmons of Mexico Missouri used the back cover of every single 1967 Saddle & Bridle magazine to advertise his stable.  The early part of the year featured his breeding stallions and later magazines featured many of his show horses and prospects.  Is there anyone like Art Simmons out there today? 

The back cover listed many of Arthur Simmons' horses. 
Holiday's Best Wishes and Jenny Dulworth.
What a powerful mare. 

Local Talent and April Denham

Starlike and Pete Shull driving
After her show days, she became a Hall of Fame Broodmare.

Technistar and Mrs. Merle Doyle

August was yet another strong show horse issue, but again the cover went to a Tennessee Walking Horse.  Art Simmons featured Tashi Ling on the back cover.

November started getting a bit thinner as show season was winding down. 

Follow Me was on the cover

Supreme Airs and Mrs. F.D. Sinclair

Supreme O'Lee and Tim Swindler

The December issue carried many ads as Season's Greetings.  On the cover was Lee Shipman and Tamerlane.  A pretty horse, but that wasn't his registered name.   

Who was he really?

Grand View's Matinee Idol while still on the East Coast
He went to Berkey Ohio in 1968 where he sired Buddy, Best Ever Saddlebred.

My father, John Dawson Sr, trained, bred and showed American Saddle Bred horses at Countryside Horse farm in Ohio, having started working with horses in home state of Kentucky, working at Emerald Farms in Ohio, training & showing in Canada and retiring from Countryside Horse Farm as trainer, after a long career breeding and showing American Saddle bred Horses.
