DECEMBER 1963 TEf)|E0^wjuiNG HI 9;RSE EAST TENNESSEE JUVENILE IS POPULAR FAVORITE Chuck Isbill of Etowah, Ten­ nessee does not look as natural serving as Flag Bearer as he does receiving ribbons at the end of an amateur or juvenile class. Chuck and his seven year old roan geld­ ing ALLEN’S BIG SHOT were in shows practically every week-end from early spring until late fall and were always in the money. They started the season with a “blue” in Oak Ridge in April, and ended with a “blue” in Murphy, North Carolina in October. Chuck, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Is­ bill, is an eighth grade student and a football player, but nothing interests him more than his horse. He started with ponies at the age of seven, and soon wanted a Tennessee Walking Horse. So, with the help of Mr. Wink Groover, Chuck was soon the owner of his first Walking Horse, SYCA­ MORE’S PRIDE, and won more than half of the pleasure walking classes that he entered. His next horse, ALLEN’S BIG SHOT, was purchased from Mr. Clyde Ander­ son of Athens, Tennessee. Chuck is a favorite rider of hundreds of horse enthusiasts in East Tennessee, making new friends each place he shows. Older horsemen describe him as one of the best young riders in the South. The way he handles ALLEN’S BIG SHOT is very outstanding, as was proven at the National Cele­ bration in Shelbyville this year. ATTENTION BREEDERS!!
