SPARROW, the AMISS TWINS, and OTHERS
Dick Sparrow reinvented the FORTY-HORSE!
hitch and took it on the road around the United States..
The Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company hired him for this
project, and now, every year he and his son Paul, shown
here with forty horses in his hands, rebuild that hitch
for the Milwaukee Circus Parade, so what else needs
to be said?
Simply, he's one of the best draft horse
teamsters in the country: our friend, fellow instructor,
(The hair bun belongs to Brittany
Amiss. Yes, she has driven the 40 horse hitch and
so has her sister, Laurel Amiss
As driving schhols fill up, we add wonderful driving instructors
like Dick Sparrow. Pam Umberger, from
Wytheville, Lynn Tuckwiller from Raphine,
and Roscoe Goode from Richmond
are regulars on our faculty, as well.
Occasionally, Dick brings along great teamsters like Jimmy
Klein, who heeps us all laughing; and he's one of the
best teamsters in the country, too!
It's not likely that any of us will ever
be as good as Dick Sparrow, but all whom he has taught will
always appreciate his willingness to share what he knows.
Many thanks, Dick, and with hugs and love to Joy!
