In Remembrance of Titan – A Great Jousting Horse



“This is the horse Mike Beaman rode when he performed with New Edge Adventure Theatre in the 90's. He had "North" written on his stall in every faire he performed at because Mike is from New Hampshire. There is a song by an 80's British hair band called Manowar where a small boy asks his grandfather to tell him a story. The grandfather tells of 4 riders who go to battle (north, south, east and west). Titan And Mike were North. If Mike had fruit loops in his pocket you could be sure that Titan was right behind him. He ran straight and true. He died of old age peacefully in pasture in Colorado.” – Paula Beaman





“The fruit loop luvin', big goof of a horse on whom I was honored to ride for several years at the end of his long career. He truly was the last of his era. The others, Thumper, Gareth, Argus, Dearborne, Shadow, Guinevere, Caesar, are all passed.” – Michael Beaman





If you knew Titan and have any stories or pictures that you would like to add, please email me or post them in the comments section.
