Meredith Landy Acquires Multiple World and Congress Champion All Good from Kent Ray Taylor
GoHorseShow would like to congratulate Meredith Landy of Temecula, California, on the purchase of Multiple World and Congress Champion All Good (Jameson) from amateur competitor Kent Ray Taylor.
“I have been shopping for a horse to replace Certified Stride (Sly) for years and never found one that I liked as well as I like Sly,” Meredith told us. “My trainer, Brad Ost called me earlier this week and said that All Good was for sale. I was beyond excited because I loved him from the first time I saw him. We moved quickly and finalized the deal today.”
Landy excitedly adds, “He was my Mother’s Day present to myself,” she says, laughing (Landy pictured above with Sly).
Last year, under the guidance of Beth Case of Highpoint Performance Horses, Kent Ray Taylor and All Good had a whirlwind show season with five NSBA World Championships, several APHA World Championships as well as multiple Congress wins.
Even though “Jameson” is an APHA gelding, he dominated many of the top futurities, including at the 2019 Quarter Horse Congress. It was in 2015 when the Congress welcomed all breeds to show in their futurity classes.
“Jameson is, no doubt, an extraordinary animal. I won absolutely everything we showed in, and he and Beth gave me an amazing year,” Taylor told us right after the sale was finalized. “It was a year of a lifetime, and we surpassed all of our goals. Now, he can do that for someone else, and Meredith Landy is an awesome lady, and Jameson has an awesome new home.”
Landy and Jameson will be under the guidance of Troy Lehn and Brad Ost of Empyre Show Horses. Brad told us that Meredith was no stranger to owning great hunt seat horses, including APHA World Champions, Real Me In and Ultimate Bonanza. “Her success with them and Karen Qualls has been amazing,” Ost shared. “This horse has been on my radar since he was two, and when he became available, the two worlds collided. It felt meant to be. Jameson just has everything it takes to be a winner. The look, the movement, and he is a true show horse. He’s fun to watch, and he’s fun to ride,” Brad continued.
We asked Ost whether he or Lehn will be showing him in the open classes. “Well, I jokingly asked Beth Case if she would still show him, and she said yes. I guess we will just see who he fits best, but the ultimate goal is for Meredith to show him and do well.”
GoHorseShow would like to congratulate everyone involved in this amazing acquisition and we look forward to seeing this new team in the show arena soon.
