Callaway's Born to Win, UPHA's Best Five Gaited Ladies Horse

Gayle Lampe, professor of equestrian science at William Woods University in Fulton, Mo., is the proud owner of Callaway's Born to Win. Together, Lampe and her gaited mount have collected several prestigious honors for their performances in 2004.

Lampe acquired Born to Win from Callaway Hills Stable in 2003 and rode him to a World's Championship at the Kentucky State Fair that August. At the American Royal later that year, she won the Five-Gaited Ladies National Championship on Born to Win.

They have been selected by the members of the United Professional Horseman's Association as the best Ladies Five-Gaited horse in the nation. The award was presented at the annual UPHA convention in Hilton Head, S.C.

National Horseman magazine also chose the pair as the top Ladies Five-Gaited horse in the nation. In addition, SADDLE HORSE REPORT'S High Point program also placed Lampe and Callaway's Born to Win on the top of the ladies five-gaited competition.

They were also awarded the Why Worry Cup for being the best open five-gaited horse in the nation. This award was based on points earned at shows recognized by the U.S. Equestrian Federation. The presentation was held at the annual USEF convention in Louisville, Ky.

"I was absolutely thrilled for Callaway's Born to Win and I to be recognized and honored by everyone," said Lampe. "I am so pleased that Born to Win is appreciated by so many other people in addition to me.”

The biggest thrill, she said, was the UPHA Award. “We earned that award as a result of receiving the most votes from my peers-other professional horse trainers. I am very lucky to own such a wonderful horse and I look forward to showing him again in 2005."
