Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

Over the past 7 years, I've grown to love and respect Gaylord, not only for his talent as a horse trainer and performer but also a man who has built his entire life into pleasing other people through his performance's.
For many years i have worked with Gaylord, assiting him in his act with the cheif and taking in as much as he was willing to teach.
I am truly blessed to have made a friend and mentor like Gaylord, and continue to work with him to this day,training,listening and becoming a better performer.
If i can do half of what he has done with horses over the last 35 years, then i'll be doin good.
I respect him and love him and will stay with him to the end.
I think this is a really nice blog to have for a family with such a long background of performing.
Hear's to you!
Thanks,Justin Eagle

When Gaylord joined the new Lippizan horse show He with Benny as side kick trained three white mules in a comedy parady of the Royal Lippizaners and their riders that was one of the funniest comedy acts in Showbiz.

When he got in the field of horse training and presentation he then excelled in that field as well and without a doubt his Bear Paw act is one of the finest comedy acts in showbiz. His choreography of talented wife Belinda gave her the greatest respect of a single trapeze perfformer.

Gaylord is indeed a world class versatile Super Star in every sense of the word and one of the nicest pleasant people you could ever hope to meet. Tex, Marcy and gaylord have done it all in our business best tradition and I am privileged to have known and worked with them and enjoyed their company all along the way.
