Throw Back Thursday

Thought I would do another TBT photo.  This is Hobbs showing in Tampa.  I can't recall the year but since I was wearing a non approved helmet I am guessing 2002.  I can't even remember when the hemet rule went into effect.  Was it 2003 or 2004?  I also have a video from a show there where at the end you can hear Don Stewart commenting to my trainer how damn fast Hobbs was.  In the winter Barnum and Bailey's circus would stay at the Tampa Fairgrounds and kept the elephants on the other side of the jumper ring.  You can see and hear them in the video too.  Fun times.


  1. Pretty sure the helmet rule was 2003. I was in IHSA and everyone had to buy new helmets.
