Clu Tardy Too, or "Beau," is a 2000 double registered APHA and PtHA all around gelding owned by Jane and David's daughter, Liz Thakar. Beau has had an extraordinary show career including Pinto World Championship titles, numerous World Top Five's and a Reserve World Pinto High-Point Horse. He has earned many national points and year end awards with students, and continues to show throughout New England. He enjoys taking students to their first shows as beginners and consistently carries students to their first blue ribbons in lead-line, walk-trot and walk-trot-canter classes, and is a favorite among Rhapsody Hill Farm students.
Before I went to the barn, I was shy and really never talked. Since I have been at Rhapsody Hill Farm, my shyness went away and I have joined a 4-H Group, and made many friends. The barn is a happy atmosphere where the horses are as great as the people there. I showed Beau this year earning blues and reds all season! Jane really cares for her students and their families. I'm so glad to be part of this barn family!
