Ocala, FL: Eliott Blackman has what is surely one of the most fun jobs in the Connemara world!! She trains and rides not one, but two, Connemaras stallions. Both were sired by the imported stallion, *Gunsmoke. WH Top Gun is out of Ballywhim Candace (by Greystone Dallen McMor) and is owned by Jim and Nancy Kilcrease. Foothill’s Field Marshall aka Bruiser is out of Foothill’s Maybee (by Aladdin). He is owned by Donna Duckworth. Eliott has been eventing both stallions for over three years now, and has taken both to the USEF eventing championships for the last two years. It is a rare weekend when either one or the other does not bring home a blue ribbon.
