From Capital Quarter Horses:
𝐎𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐀 𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐳𝐞
2009 – 2023
We are saddened to report the passing of Only A Breeze, affectionately known as “Abby.” We were fortunate to be part of Abby’s stellar western pleasure career, winning 2 Select World Championships, 3 Open World Championships, and multiple Congress and NSBA World Championships.
We so appreciate the expert care provided by Mid-South Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery, Benjamin Coley, CF, and our own Leslie Bailey over the last several months as we dealt with complications from long-standing laminitis.
This mare was so special to us and so many others. A heartfelt thank you to Rusty and Katie Green who helped bring this mare into our lives. Thanks as well to Brian & Dawn Baker and Dan and Kathy Frederick for selling us this incredible horse. Our barn feels a little emptier this week.
In her honor, we’ve compiled links of our coverage of Abby’s success over the years! See them below:
“Somewhere… somewhere in time’s own space, there must be some sweet pastured space where creeks sing on, and tall trees grow, Some paradise where horses go. For by the love that guides my pen, I know great horses live again.” – Stanley Harrison
