Tim O’Gorman

I’ve just been informed that Tim O’Gorman passed away peacefully last night in his sleep.  This is all I know at this time.

I can understand if his loved ones would prefer to go through this quietly, but if anyone has information on where to send cards, flowers, etc, I’m sure there are many folks out there who would like to express their condolences.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Tim.  But if anyone out there has fond or fun memories of him this would be a great place to share them.

    I heard that this morning as well. My thoughts go out to Shirley and family. I’m so sorry for their loss, it seems impossible to think of Shirley without Tim, or Tim without Shirley,they are great horsemasters and wonderful people.

    I had the rare opportunity to travel from State College, Pennysylvania back to California. Before the trip I had barely a vague idea of even taking it. But suddenly I had a plane ticket and car to truck back home in and I was on my way.

    I must admit it took some real convincing myself, but a few days before I hit Michigan I decided to call on some of the Morgan farms to see if I could visit. I also posted something on here too… gosh on a side note thanks everyone!

    Well I got through to some of the Morgan farms. I must admit I was nervous as all get out! One of those farms was Mr. O’ Gormans stables. I will never forget meeting him or his wife for the first time. As a Morgan obsessed child it was like meeting celebrity’s.

    And guess what?

    They we great. My high hopes of meeting the O’ Gorman’s and talking and learning, were not dulled. In fact they were better in person than I could have dreamed. So while I am sad about Tim’s passing and I am very happy that I was able to meet one of the people that touched the Morgan breed, that I love, in such a fantastically instrumental way.

    When I was 13, I got my first show horse. As much as I was in love with this horse, we went through class after class with my nerves taking over. Finally, one Friday night in August things just clicked, and we put it all together in what felt like a great ride. At least we’d made it through all three gaits successfully. When Mr. O’Gorman came up to me afterward and said “You did a good job,” I knew we’d had a great ride. We left the ring with my first victory pass but more importantly a confidence boost that set the stage for a successful show career. It was only a few words, but I’ll always remember his simple compliment and how much it meant to me.
