Episode 41- Ross the Boss & the Classic Series Champions

In episode 41 we have Ross Honsberger back on the show to discuss the Belle View/All-Star Farms hitch of mares that went to the North American Six Horse Hitch Classic Series Finals and came home as  the overall champions.   Now, most people forget that back before Facebook, there was a thing called AOL Instant Messenger.  I, for one, remember that Ross’s screen name way back then was RossTheBoss02, and in the Fall of 2017 he definitely lived up to the name!  The group of mares Ross assembled for the Dingman and Wagner families has reached the pinnacle of draft horse hitching and has set new standards for what is possible with a six horse hitch.  In this episode we discuss:

  • Each mare’s history and lineage
  • Some of the challenges Ross faced in the middle of the show season
  • How Ross was able to improvise and stay at the top of the competition
  • The Gordyville Consignments Ross is currently fitting for the sale
