Walking Horse owner and exhibitor, Keith Champion, passed away April 11, 2019. Keith was known for his humble attitude and great personality. Keith owned and exhibited Go Boy on Parade, Collectors Director, and most notably The Real Deal, and Be Cool. Keith received many awards through the years, one he was very proud of receiving was the NCWHA senior horse person of the year. Keith will be missed by many in the walking horse industry, but especially by those most closely associated with Bonner Stables.
