Over time, the young horse traded hands, crossed an ocean, and ended up on the American show-jumping circuit. That was when he met another diminutive Irish immigrant, Mickey Walsh.
The two were inseparable until, at Mickey's request, Little Squire was retired at the top of his game, and while he was still sound. He went out in a blaze of glory, though, ending his last performance with Mickey by jumping a six-foot-two fence, rider-less, in front of a packed arena. During the war-torn 30s, Little Squire had given people something to cheer about.
