Good Mixture (Mixture x Romaha) was a 16.1 ½ hand brown gelding born in 1962 who was bought off the racetrack by Miss Geraldine (Gerry) Pearson in Oregon. After the 1972 Olympics, he was purchased by a group of USCTA members with Neil Ayer owning the largest share. In 1971, Good Mixture was named USCTA Horse of the Year, and in 1972 he was Kevin Freeman’s mount at the Munich Olympic Games where the pair was members of the silver medal-winning team. In addition, they were the highest placed Americans earning an individual fifth-place finish. Two years later, Good Mixture partnered with Mike Plumb and headed across the Atlantic Ocean once again to contest the World Championships which were held in England at the Burghley Horse Trials. Good Mixture and Plumb won the individual silver medal and were members of the U.S. Team which took top honors earning the gold medal.
After Good Mixture retired from competition, he was sent to Freeman’s farm in Oregon where he served as a schoolmaster well into his 20s.
