Aug 2nd, 2021 | By | Category: News, Obituaries

Two-time Lead Line World Grand Champion, My Little Red Wagon, was humanely euthanized on July 21, 2021 after suffering complications from a broken leg. This pony was owned and loved by The Jake Jacobs Family of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He was sired by Bet On Shaker and out of E’s Red Poppy. My Little Red Wagon was foaled on March 8, 2008, to Charles Gleghorn of Fayetteville, Tennessee.

Wagon made his show ring debut with Boston Kate Tillman at the 2017 Manchester Lions Club Horse Show. It was this show where he made his first victory pass. The duo went on to capture the 2017 Lead Line World Grand Championship at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.

In 2018, My Little Red Wagon was paired with a new rider. Alexis Cofer and Wagon teamed up and captured wins at the Woodbury Lions Club and Belfast horse shows, followed with a reserve win in the Lead Line World Grand Championship.

In 2020, My Little Red Wagon was selected by The Jake Jacobs Family for Ally Jo Jacobs to campaign in the Lead Line division. This new duo took home wins at the Money Tree Classic, Woodbury Lions Club, Liz’s Kids Show, Marshall County Horseman’s Association, Fayetteville Blue Ribbon, National Trainers’ Show and Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, becoming the 2020 Lead Line World Grand Champions.

In 2021, My Little Red Wagon and Wylder Way were paired together and made their first outing at the Southern Championships. Other wins followed at the Alabama Ladies Auxiliary Show, the Columbia Spring Jubilee, the Woodbury Lions Club and their final appearance at the Cornersville Lions Club Horse Show. This duo had an undefeated season and had won the hearts of the crowd in a short period of time. Wagon, Wylder and handler Jayden Jackson were never far away from their greatest supporter and fan, Ally Jo Jacobs, and the greatest Lead Line coordinator and coach, Kim Bailey and her son, Kyle Bailey. My Little Red Wagon will always be remembered as one of the greatest lead line ponies of all time. The Scoop fondly remembers this great World Grand Champion and sends our condolences to all who loved him.
