Royal Imprint, age 19, was humanly laid to rest on Wednesday, November 19th at his home, Bottoms Stables, after being treated for colic at the UT Veterinary Hospital.  Royal had a long and successful career as a padded performance show horse, pleasure show horse, trail mount and wonderful companion.  In his early career, Royal was shown by Jordan Eldridge in the Youth Performance and Ladies Specialty divisions.  Royal was then purchased by Susan Paul, where Susan and Royal won the International Grand Championship Amateur Owned and Trained division along with many other titles.  Susan was very generous in allowing Chloe Casteel to become the next owner to enjoy Royal.  Royal was very instrumental in teaching Chloe as both a show horse in the Youth Country Pleasure, winning their last blue ribbon at the White County Open Fair Horse show and as a superb trail mount.  Royal was a true ambassador showing the versatility, ability and gentle nature of this great breed.  He was loved by many and is greatly missed.
