Charlie Roach and his twin were young when their father lost interest in a horse hobby. That set in motion Charlie’s lifelong passion for the animals.
“Dad had horses when we were growing up like most men buy a boat,” he said. “Bob and I were 11 and horse crazy so we took the reins.”
Roach still has a firm grip on those reins 45 years later.
His equine career includes training and showing Tennessee Walkers, giving riding lessons and shoeing horses.
