HBF Iron Man
HBF IRON MAN - 5X APHA World Champion
Sire of AQHA, APHA, PtHA and NSBA World & Reserve World Champions
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of HBF Iron Man. A 5x World Champion and the sire of AQHA, APHA, PtHA and NSBA World Champions sire, he was 21.
HBF Iron Man won 5 APHA World Titles in 5 attempts! Both Hunt Seat and Western and in Open, Amateur and Novice competitions. With 923 points in 7 events, 5 Superiors and multiple Congress Championships he truly was a exceptional show horse. He passed on his own characteristics; a willing temperament and exceptional athleticism. His offspring have won in Halter, Western and English Rail and Pattern Classes, Over Fences, in Longe Line and in Dressage.
All the members of our staff feel the loss of this noble individual. Always cheerful and good natured he is sorely missed in our barn.
