competitors. T e tent remained open through- out the show, giving folks a place to sit and relax and enjoy a drink or a snack between classes. T ese breakfasts, along with many of the new great prizes, were the result of sponsor- ships and contributions made by local training stables who, when asked, were happy to “step up to the plate” and con- tribute, explained Moore. It is this new aspect of his shows that pleases Moore the most; the willingness of these same people who support the shows with entries, to also off er dona- tions towards improving the quality of the shows, which resulted in a better show experience for all. He hopes to continue this trend at the December Hunter Classic, and at all three shows going forward.


Boumi Temple and Loudoun Benefi t Moore will have less of a free rein with the


programs at Boumi Temple and Loudoun Benefi t, the two shows that BFSM has been charged with managing, but does not own.


Boumi Temple is Maryland’s oldest horse show and began as a benefi t event for the the Shri- ners Hospital for Children, still a benefi ciary of a portion of the proceeds of the show. T e show has been held during the last weekend in May at McDonogh School for several years and will be held there again this year. Loudoun Benefi t is

one of Virginia’s oldest horse shows and has seen a number of homes over the years, including Fox- croft School and Morven Park. It fi nally settled last year at Shelby Bonnie’s picturesque Salem Farm in Upperville, Virginia, where it will be held again on June 11-14. Loudoun Benefi t has its own board of directors with whom Moore is working to con-


tinue the popular traditions for which the show is heralded, such as daily catered luncheons for exhibitors (another Baker favorite). T e show also boasts a magnifi cent bevy of sterling silver perpetual trophies awarded to division champi- ons and grand champions. Names on the sides of these trophies read like an all-star lineup of


show horses, ponies, and riders of the past sev- eral decades, including entries from none other than Streett Moore himself.


Baker’s Legacy


Moore is excited to put the money his shows make back into future BFSM events to im- prove the quality of each show and the over- all show experience which in the end, he says, “benefi ts everybody.” He expressed that it’s not just about making money; it is about having horse shows that are fun for the competitors, shows that people will remember for the good time they had or the great prizes they won, and will want to come back to.


Horse showing was one of the four most im-


portant things in Gary Baker’s life, along with horse racing, family, and friends, and he con- sidered many of his horse show friends “fam- ily.” With a dear friend now at the helm of his beloved horse shows, and one of his shows, the Loudoun Benefi t, now happening on the same grounds as the Piedmont Point-to-Point races that he so enjoyed, we can rest assured that W. Gary Baker is utterly satisfi ed with the arrange- ments he so carefully made.
