Horse Show Review
Last month, we had a great Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show in Oklahoma City.
We came home with six world
championship, two reserve world championship, and five
grand national championship ribbons. A highlight of the
show was the group participation in the show’s lip sync
competition on Thursday night. The costumes were a crowd
favorite. All had a great time .

Congratulations to Carol Johnson of Nicholasville, KY on the purchase of Toscanini. ‘Chris’ was owned by Good Morgans LLC and shown by Kim Germ-Cramer.
Carol’s granddaughter, Addison, will show the multi-world champion in junior exhibitor 13 & under pleasure classes under the direction of Robert Hughes (the gelding’s original breeder and owner) of BlackRidge in Versailles, KY.
We wish everyone the best of luck in the coming show seasons.
News from the Broadmoor Gang
Former assistant trainer Erlene Seybold Smythe was in the area horse shopping with a client, and stopped by the farm for a visit. She loved the time she spent at Broadmoor, and always takes advantage of an opportunity to visit with Mike and Dwayne, and to see all the horses in the barn.
Our condolences to Dwayne and his brother, Greg, on the passing of their uncle, Gerard Knowles. They have wonderful memories of growing up with this man in their lives.
Recently, several members of the Broadmoor family attended the Pennsylvania Morgan Horse Club Awards Banquet to enjoy comradery and the great food at the Timbers. Hourglass received the Pleasure Driving High-Point Award. Owner Sharon Picus was on hand to receive the award for her mare that was driven by Dwayne Knowles throughout the show season.
Award winner Sharon Picus was joined by Nicole Moore, Dwayne Knowles, Mike Goebig, Linda Brewer, and Jess and Greg Knowles.
It's easy to understand Linda Brewer's reaction to a November snow storm and knowing she has to face the elements to do barn chores.
We hope our family and friends had
an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday.
