George D. Newman

George Newman

George D. Newman was a longtime exhibitor of Hackneys from his Duncannon Farm in St. Catharines, Ont.  Although George had a particular memorable drive with the champion Hackney Pony mare, Centurian’s Lady Lynda;  Mr. Newman’s hallmark, for which he was well known, was the turnout of his beautiful Hackney Horses.  As a highly skilled whip, he was often “the one to beat” in Gig, Tandem and Pair classes with such champions as Suddie Marshall, Marden Striplight, Marden Sonata, and Nork Elegance.  His debonair aplomb was a most welcome sight in both Canada and the United States.

For all his success in the show ring,  George Newman’s greatest contribution, where he has no equal was his sportsmanship.  Mr. Newman could be counted on as the voice of reason and encouragement in helping both new and experienced exhibitors.  Mr. Newman and his wife Kate, along with their Family, were also gracious hosts of the St. Catharines Horse Show each summer.  As Past President of the Canadian Hackney Society and worthy role model for future generations; from his fellow Hackney enthusiasts around the world, to his Family and friends, only the highest regard is held for George Newman.  (Inducted February 2004)
