1930 – 1945 “Fisher Era”

  • During the 1930s, Dixiana also enjoyed prosperity and notoriety as a saddle horse farm. Charles and Sarahs daughter, Mary V. Fisher was an accomplished gaited horse show woman. She was awarded the honors of being the first saddle horse rider inducted into the National Horse Show Hall of Fame and then later inducted into the Kentucky Hall of Fame. During this time, Dixiana Farm was home to five-gaited champion Beau Woolf.
  • Perhaps Mary’s most important role came towards the end of her father’s life (1963) when she took over the management of Dixiana. The farm continued to prosper and continued to produce great runners such as Red Cross, Fulvous and Fulcrum (Lane’s End Breeders Futurity 1957).
