A well-known member of the Saddlebred community, Jimmy Miller, died on Saturday, December 27, 2008. A private graveside service was held on Monday, December 29.
Miller, a resident of Ashland, MO, has long been associated with World’s Champion road horses and ponies. His record of successful road ponies may very well be without equal and include World’s Champions: Adiamo, Free Willy, Lamborghini, and Dun-Haven Infatuation—just to mention a few.
Likewise, Miller’s stellar lineup of road ponies is joined by such noted Saddlebreds as WC Wanna Rumba, WC Titleist, WC Rags To Rubies, RWC CH Callaway’s Claret, RWC CH Manhattan Man, RWC CH Sparkling Valley High, and RWC Sultan’s Colleen.
Miller’s service in the horse industry has been vast. He was a chapter chairman to the UPHA, USEF clinician for the Hackney division, and representative on the USEF Roadster and Hackney Committees, as well as serving on various horse show committees. As a recognized judge in the American Saddlebred, Roadster, Hackney, and saddle seat equitation divisions, his judging records include shows at the World’s Championship Horse Show, Lexington Junior League Horse Show, and the American Royal, among others.
He was inducted into the American Road Horse and Pony Association Hall of Fame during the World’s Championship Horse Show in 2004.
