CH Dusty Beau Passes Away Unexpectedly

CH Dusty Beau passed away unexpectedly Wednesday March 26 after a practice ride with trainer Lewis Eckard.

Dusty Beau was the Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited 14-17 World’s Champion of Champions in 2004 with Ashley Walker. They were Reserve World’s Champions the following year in the 16-17 division. Rebekah Cloninger took over the reins the following spring and graced winner’s circles throughout the Southeast with their final blues coming this spring at ASAC, where they won both of their classes.

A special trophy was established by Cloninger and was awarded in Saturday night’s Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Championship, a class that Cloninger and Dusty Beau had won the previous two seasons. The trophy will be given each year for permanent possession.
