PHSA HALL OF FAME
Donated by Kimber-View Stables
In recognition of the horses and ponies whose achievements have made a lasting impression in the horse world
Harbor Master has been described as an all-around great horse who has done it all. "Batman" was a PA Bred TB bred by Carol Lush and Cheryll Francella gave him his start. He went on to Sue Sisco to get broke as a 2 yr old and from there. Batman made his connection with Wendy Bridges Deitrich and the pair regularly competed in the Adult Hunters as well as Side-Saddle at Devon. He then partnered with Catharine Wanamaker Cox and together they conquered the AO division. Sue Sisco was lucky enough to be with Batman along this journey and all the while competed him in the Working Hunters as well as Side-Saddle. Batman always exhibited great style and form over the jumps but it was his winning attitude that everyone admired most. Congratulations to everyone connected to Harbor Master!
Mimosa was bred by Joan King and Jack Trainer. Mimosa was by the famous stallion, Cusop Sparklet. She was a Medium Pony Hunter who won every major championship including Devon, Harrisburg and Washington under multiple riders including Brett Kligerman. Congratulations to Mimosa and all of her connections!
Sage was also bred by Joan King and Jack Trainor. She was a small pony hunter that was also by the famous stallion, Cusop Sparklet. Like her stablemate, Mimosa, she won every major championship, including Harrisburg, Washington and Devon (1979 and 81) with Jesse Baker in the irons. She was Zone 2 Champion and HOTY for the country in 1981.
Here is a quote from Jesse: "Sage was very special to me, my first "real" pony. Brett Kligerman and my sister Rachel Kennedy both showed her in a class for me during her green year. Sage and I were both pretty young and they set us up for success. I still look for pieces of her when I buy ponies for polo. She had a HUGE heart and SO MUCH confidence in the ring. I’m very excited and this is a huge honor!"
Congratulations to Sage, Jesse and all of those connected to her!
