Bob always had an interest in horses. He had horses on the farm as a boy. That grew into his love for walking horses. He trained for several years. He made so many good friends through the horse world. There's a certain building that lately has been used as the welcome center for the Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tenn. But it's real claim to fame, years ago it was a horse barn where Bob Gilmore trained horses. Through his years of training, he trained in several states including Florida, Kentucky, Michigan as well as Tennessee. Bob has been attending the Celebration for over 50 years.
