Up Standing Chip - Mary Lou - Jamie Wright, Trainer

As of 12 November, We achieved Up Standing Chip's Superior in Amateur Western Pleasure.

A Word of thanks: 

First to My Loving and most supportive Husband, Jeffery Elias, and to our Excellent trainer, Jamie Wright because, without Jeff's guidance and Jamie's training this dream would never have been possible.

To make a very long story short:

At one point Mary Lou and Maggie were just about to part ways.  In December of 2001, she had lost all hope of getting this mare to come around and almost traded her for a saddle and a little boot.

Her loving husband talked her into keeping the mare.  they agreed, but only if they could find someone that would bring out the best in her that they knew was in the mare. -- In March 02, she was sent to Jamie and that's when the tables turned.

In November, just 8 months later, they received a Superior performance award in Amateur Western Pleasure.

On the top right is Up Standing Chip, known as "Maggie".  

We have sent Jamie Wright  another of our babies he has done so well getting them broke and ready to show. 

This time, he is riding a baby we raised out of my old pleasure mare, "Lazin in Da Sun" an own daughter of the Copper Count and Up Standing Zipper.

I am a firm believer in - "What Comes Around, Goes Around", and although you may never see it go around, it will! - So, do the best to do your best, and if you step on someone's toes, apologize.  Life is only what you make it and we are only here once.

This fall, we intend on showing at the "Alabama Southern Select", "Magic 20", "Columbia, TN", and "Murfreesboro TN" futurities.  For More information on Alabama - Please visit  ALQHA
