Glyndle Tabor Passes Away; Information on Services



The ASHA’s 2002 Breeders Hall of Fame Inductee, Glyndle Tabor of Scottsville, Kentucky, passed away Wednesday, January 14, 2009.

Tabor owned and operated 3-T Farm in Scottsville, Kentucky, one of the better known American Saddlebred breeding operations of the 20th and 21st  centuries. He raised his own family in the house he was born and raised in and was the first of his family to venture into the Saddlebred world. He broke his first pony when he was 14 and by the time he was 20, Glyndle had a barn full of training and trading horses. The farm, 3-T Farm, was named for three Tabors: Glyndle and his two sons Danny and Randy. In 2006, Randy died in an explosion, while working on an oil tank on the 3-T Farm.  

Tabor is well known for the great stallion Worthy Son (Supreme Sultan x Jasper Lou [BHF]). Worthy Son, who passed away in 2000, has 534 registered get and was the catalyst that put 3-T Farm on the map as a breeding farm.

It is hard to state the impact Worthy Son and the Tabors have had on the Saddlebred Industry, as their contributions are too large to measure.

Other horses the Tabors are known for include CH Trust Worthy, Roseridge Heir, Worthy’s Prodigy, For what It’s Worth, Worthstyle, Worthy’s Sonshine, Worthy’s Temptress,  Reggie’s American Legend, Amazon Princess, CH Worthy Winner, CH Creditworthy, CH Peppermint Sonburst, Summer In Smoke, Worthy’s Top Gun, CH Sharp Tack, CH Have You Ever, CH Peruvian Princess, CH Sultans Hawk, CH Worthy Memories, Aisling’s Treasure, James Lewis, The Rose Lady, Himalaya, Worth The Trip, CH Net Worth, and many more too numerous to list.

Visitation is from 12:00 to 9:00 PM Central Time, Friday, January 16, at T. W. Crow and Son Funeral Home, 201 North Court Street, Scottsville, Kentucky. Funeral services will begin at 11:00 AM Central Time, Saturday, January 17, at the Funeral Home.
