National Show Horse

The National Show Horse, (NSH), originated as a cross between an American Saddlebred and an Arabian horse. It is now established as a separate breed, since the founding of a breed registry in August 1981. Registered animals today may be the offspring of registered NSH parents or may be a combination between an American Saddlebred, Arabian, and a National Show Horse. Non-NSH mares and stallions must be registered with their appropriate registries, and stallions who are Arabian or Saddlebred must additionally be nominated and approved by the NSHR board of directors.

Black Gold to Bluegrass
59,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Black Gold to Bluegrass is the first such work that concentrates wholly on the Second Spindletop Oil Boom and what happened afterward-taking the story from the oil fields of Southeast Texas and Louisiana to the Bluegrass of Kentucky. After partnering with Thomas Peter Lee of Houston, Frank Yount, water-well driller turned wildcatter, struck it rich, and the Yount-Lee Oil Company began a remarkable march that almost took it to the top of the oil industry. Although he used some of his wealth to benefit his fellowman, Frank Yount, also put together a priceless collection of antique violins, and some of the classiest and most expensive automobiles of the day, including three Duesenbergs and a Cord. He built a state-of-the-art Saddlebred training facility in Beaumont, hired dashing horseman Cape Grant to run it, and directed him to take the horses of Spindletop Stables to competitive shows throughout the county-and win! Frank Yount died young at age 53 in November 1933. Within two years, Pansy-his wife and principal heir-and the investors in the Yount-Lee Oil Company sold the enterprise to Houston attorney Wright Morrow for then what amounted to the third-largest financial transaction in American business history. Morrow, who later became one of the giants of Texas politics, immediately parceled off most of Yount-Lee's oil assets to Stanolind (Standard Oil of Indiana), a subsidiary of the giant Standard Oil conglomerate which later became Amoco. In spite of the magnitude of this transaction, when expressed in Depression era dollars, it was later widely acknowledged that no one, save perhaps Frank Yount himself, fully understood the astronomical significance and value of the Yount-Lee holdings. Pansy, no less independent and colorful than her husband (but somewhat more flamboyant) took her part of the family's fortune and moved Spindletop Stables to a 1,066 acre show farm in the horse country of Kentucky, building a 45,000 square foot mansion which she named Spindletop Hall, the centerpiece of the new and extremely successful Spindletop Farm. The farm became the most innovative saddle horse breeding facility of its time, and Pansy became a legend in horse circles. Using an array of previously unknown primary source materials from the Yount-Manion family archives, photographs never before published, and recently discovered film, McKinley and Riley present a book filled with incredible acts of generosity, long-standing controversies, intrigues, and twists and turns at every point. Black Gold to Bluegrass is a must for general readers and scholars alike, whose interests lie in Saddlebreds, antique automobiles, or violins; and for oil enthusiasts, the book paints a rags-to-riches story of a true wildcatter turned contemporary hero who embodies the American dream.

As they prepare for the World's Champion Horse Show, Mel grapples with the mistakes of her past. She's fallen off a lot of horses in her life. The trick is to get back on and try again. Does she have the courage to try again with Jake? But as the danger escalates, Mel and Jake must work together to discover who's threatening Mel's life and the safety of their daughter. Is there enough of an ember in the ashes of their past to reignite the flames of love? The Bluegrass Reunion series: Contemporary romances about second chances that can be read as standalone novels with happily ever after endings and no cliffhangers.

Kentucky's Saddlebred Heritage
22,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Long associated with fine Thoroughbred horses, Kentucky,s Bluegrass region is also home to America,s oldest indigenous breed: the American Saddlebred horse. A composite of several breeds, the Saddlebred was developed by 18thcentury colonists who sought a goodlooking, sensible, adaptable, and comfortable animal to ride and drive. These traits made it the mainstay of the Confederate cavalry during the Civil War and the choice mount of many generals on both sides. As the Industrial Revolution replaced the need for working horse power, the Saddlebred evolved naturally into recreational activities. Affectionately known as ,peacock of the show ring,, the Saddlebred,s beauty, expression, and athleticism epitomize the essence of a show horse. In many ways, the breed,s history parallels that of America and unfolds in pictures in Kentucky,s Saddlebred Heritage.
