Equine Obituary – Beam’s Temptation





Bobby Hugh directed Beam’s Temptation to the Three-Year-Old Mare World Championship on a stormy night in 1992.



World Champion Beam’s Temptation was quietly laid to rest Feb. 24, 2009 under a tree on the Shelbyville, Tenn., farm where she had spent her last years as a broodmare and in retirement. This great mare by Pride’s Beam and Coin’s Lady by Prides Gold Coin, was 20-years-old and was a part of the family. She was Lisa Baum’s first walking horse and was also the first to bring World Championship recognition to the state of Wisconsin. At that time, Jim Baum and his family lived in Ixonia, Wisconsin. She was trained at Double B Stables at Thornridge South in Shelbyville, where Buddy and Bobby Hugh trained, along with assistants Brian Smith, Gene Haynes and Brad Kirby.

Bobby Hugh directed her to the 1992 Three-Year-Old Mare World Championship. She was a very successful show horse and won most of the major shows with Bobby Hugh or Lisa Baum in the saddle. Lisa commented that Buddy Hugh is probably riding her now and Janie Hugh will give her a loving pat.
