JIMMY HOLLOWAY (Legends Series) Drinkware (8Styles)
Jimmy Holloway was in high school in Lauderdale, Miss when he began his Tennessee Walking Horse training career. He worked as a groom for the late J.H. Noblin. The late C.G. Smith of Blytheville, Ark. gave Holloway his first job as a trainer. He later took a job with Mr. and Mrs. Ed Pointer of Pointer Stables in Combo, Miss. In 1952, Holloway's training career was put on hold while he served two years during the Korean War. Following his military service, Holloway moved to the Possumnneck Community outside West, Miss., where he began training for C.D. Maddox Stables in 1954. In 1971, Holloway purchased Maddox Stables, including horses, land, equipment and cattle. He continued the business until he retired from the show ring in 1977. With his extensive knowledge of the care, training and potential of the Tennessee Walking horse, Holloway went on to be a charter member, officer and director of the Walking Horse Trainers' Association and served on the Executive Committee of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association. Holloway was later inducted into the Mississippi Walking Horse Hall of Fame and the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration Hall of Fame. Widely known for his judging expertise, Holloway judged the Celebration three times along with many major horse shows in the southeast. Go Boy's Big Shot and Delight's Rock And Roll were just two of many of the World Champion, Futurity and blue ribbon winners Holloway trained.
