Reserve world champion Final’s Pusher passed away on August 3, 2022. Affectionately known as "Speedy," he was 26 years old at the time of his passing. Speedy had a long show career from the age of two through the age of 18, spanning many areas of the country. He showed from several stables, the last and longest being Heritage Stables, where he was loved as one of their own. He earned his reserve world championship in the Juvenile division in 2004 and many, many other accolades throughout his career. He had an affectionate relationship with peppermint treats, baby carrots, and he had “his” one human that he loved above all others, owner Beth Sanford Reed. Many people took their first ride on a performance horse aboard Speedy, and he was gentle as a lamb with them. He was a truly great ambassador to the Tennessee Walking Horse breed. Speedy took his time embracing retirement, as he was a bit reluctant at first, and once he came to terms with no longer showing, he enjoyed being with his pasture mates. Speedy will be forever loved and very dearly missed.
