The Report recently learned of the passing of three-time World Champion, International Grand Champion and NWHA Champion, Lion King. This talented pleasure horse has carried numerous riders to blue ribbon victories, but most recently Sarah Beth Arnold. In fact, Sarah Beth directed Lion King to a blue just this previous weekend at the WHOA Plantation Classic held in Shelbyville, Tenn. The Mark Arnold family of Stockbridge, Ga., purchased Lion King from Maggie Moore. He was under the care of Allison Smart of Shelbyville, Tenn. The family appreciated the dedication of Dr. Jim Baum throughout his care. He left hoofprints on the hearts of all who knew him. Our heart goes out to the Arnold, Leek, and Irby families.
