When starting the Loula Long Combs
Driving Experience, we began looking for Hackney horses
to properly represent the way Loula drove horses.
Walkabout Farms is very
pleased to announce the arrival of EQL Hallelujah (otherwise
known as “Louie”). He is a seven year old gelding, a pure
Hackney horse showing fine harness since two years old, winning
numerous times at the Royal Canadian and Louisville, Kentucky
horse park – already a champion!!
Louie is over sixteen hands tall
and is chestnut with four white socks and white blaze. Louie is
currently being leased to “Walkabout Farms” under very generous
arrangements through John and Morgan Beilfuss.
We have started Louie in
heavy-harness and pulling a Phaeton. He has already done his first film
appearance released in the fall 2007.
Louie is our long awaited
opportunity to tell the story of what we consider one of the most
interesting ladies of the horse show-ring, and also give people the
chance to see this magnificent breed as it was back when Loula Long
Combs was the “Queen Of The American Royal.”

More about Louie and what

We have been working on
obtaining Louie for a very long time and we believe this is one
of the things that Loula is helping to make happen.
