ABOUT THE COVER
Air Ride Equipped is probably the most famous horse you’ve never heard of. The two-time AQHA World Show Champion never ceases to amaze his owners and trainer. “We’re just so fortunate to have him. He really is a once-in-a-lifetime horse,” says owner, Michele Wilhelm.
At the AQHA World Show in 2008, “Pooh” was the Reserve World Champion in Junior Hunter Under Saddle and came back in 2009 to take home his first World Championship in Senior Hunter Under Saddle, with Cindy Young in the irons. According to Wilhelm, “When my family purchased Pooh last summer, Cindy handed the reins to our trainer, Keith Miller of Reidsville, NC and together, Keith and Pooh have been a great match.”
“Keith was in the irons at the 2011 AQHA World Show where the pair brought home Pooh’s second World Championship, but the first in our barn family," Wilhelm, added. "This last year has been a dream come true for all of us. My daughter, Lauren, and I are so thankful to have such an incredible horse, talented trainer, and wonderful barn friends who have supported us so much. ”
When he’s not busy eating Nilla Wafers, you can see Air Ride Equipped at all the major shows this year with Lauren E. Wilhelm in the Amateur Hunter Under Saddle and Keith Miller in the Senior Division.
