Great AQHA show horse, Conclusives Bar Cody, died Wednesday, May 8 from complications due to colic. The 23-year-old brown gelding, “Milton,” had over 3,400 points, 16 superiors, and multiple AQHA World and Reserve World Championships including titles in hunter under saddle, horsemanship (twice), equitation, and western riding.
“I remember one year at the Congress where he won the Western Riding, Hunter Under Saddle Maturity, Hunter Hack, and Horsemanship all in one year,” Charlie Cole remembers. “He was 17 hands but he could spin a hole in the ground and lay down a perfect horsemanship pattern. He made you work for everything. You had to prepare him correctly or he would be too fresh but if we did our job — he did his.”
Conclusives Bar Cody was by Conclusives Dare (Conclusive) and out of a daughter of Ole Bartender (The Ole Man). Pedigree here.
