KEN TAYLOR (Legends Series) Drinkware (8Styles)
The story of Ken Taylor is one that books and movies would beg Hollywood to dream to pen or put on the big screen. Ken is a tremendous person and cherished friend to many, in addition to him having a God given talent of horsemanship, finding his passion and love with Tennessee Walking Horses and its people was his destiny.
He trained Jet Set, Dudes Black Allen, Threat's Cargo, Colonel, Genius Vanilla Ice, Magic Touch, Mr. Ebony's Bad Boy, Jubilee's Black Onyx, Dream's SunDust, Kruggerand, Jubilee's Awesome Dream, Outrageous Attitude, The Gatekeeper, and countless others.
The horses Ken trained and his operation of Ken Taylor Stables is but a part of the story. Many of you have heard the historic tales of a horse trainer who trained blind...that man is Ken Taylor. Having a progressive case to blindness, Ken was often seen one arm length and should away from many being guided to the ring to coach a rider or another trainer. His other senses were kicked into high gear and with the mere sounds of horses feet hitting the gound as they went by, he could hear all he needed to know.
Ken's son Josh picked up the torch and has ridden and done well showing for many years. Much like the Knights Tale...the blind father mending nets, Ken was the ears that made the great horses Josh show even more spectacular. Ken Taylor now retired, enjoys woodworking and unfortunately has had to retire from riding. For these reasons Ken Taylor is an amazing Legend, and has a vision of the Tennessee Walking Horse we could only dream to possess.
