He was born in Waukesha, WI. He started his career as a Teacher, a Show Horse, a Mentor, and a Best Friend right away as a 4 year old. Showing in Horse Shows all over the country from AZ to MS, in Canada and right here at the Harvest Horse Show.
His first year wasn’t very pretty all the time. His first round here at the Harvest Show, when he realized he was alone, he managed to jump an oxer backwards-making his way back to the In Gate as fast as he could.
But, Gabe went on to be win many Champion Awards. And, carried Patti around the AO 3’6″ Division for about 10 years. As well as MANY other riders that were without horses at many horse shows till his early 20’s.
Gabe didn’t want to retire. He loved having a job and being around people. He was still working right up till his passing. He was getting ridden 2 to 3 times each week and loving every minute of it.
Gabe was the ULTIMATE YOUNG-OLD Horse. And, will never be forgotten.
