GoHorseShow is sad to hear of the unexpected passing of the top show mare, Show Diva. Our thoughts are with the Moran family and everyone at Highpoint Performance Horses. The 2001 sorrel mare by Good Version and out of World Champion pleasure mare, Chocolate Zipper, passed away due to complications associated with colic surgery.

The Morans and Highpoint would like to thank Dr. David McCarroll of Interstate Equine for taking very good care of her.

"She was a very special horse. She was the first horse we bought for the Morans, and she was very special to all of us," Jason Martin told GoHorseShow. "I was Reserve World Champion in Western Pleasure on her and that's not an easy feat. We have a lot of babies out of her so her legacy will live on. She is the dam of, Only In Showbiz, who won the Green Hunter Under Saddle at the Congress last year and the Novice this year with now owner, Kaylee Mellott."

The four-time Congress Champion was bred by Clarice Cooper of Maysville, Georgia and accumulated over 2300 points in her outstanding show career. She is also a two-time Reserve World Champion in the Western Pleasure and Reserve World Champion in the Junior Western Riding. This talented mare also has placed in the Top 10 at the Congress and AQHA World Show numerous years in different events.

We know she will be greatly missed, our condolences go out to everyone who has been involved with this great mare.
