Mayor Hunt noted that a House Bill 575, which would designate the Ken- tucky Spring Seat Saddle as the official saddle of the Commonwealth of Ken- tucky, and which was co- sponsored by State Reps. Sannie Overly and Scott Wells, unanimously passed the State House in March but got bogged down in the Senate during the debate over pension reform. Hunt said that the bill will open for Veteran's Day. Hunt also asked commit- tee members to consider creating a Minihan Saddle Club for people who own the saddles and to have a Eugene Minihan Day dur- ing the annual Owingsville Lions Club Horse Show next July, in order to create more enthusiasm for fund- raising for the project. Saddle owners could display their saddles, and awards would be presented during Day.

Bailey remembers her fa- ther's own Minihan saddle, which was not stamped but which shared the same handmade construction and design.
