Beauford Hall was a professional horse trainer and had what his niece Anna Greene referred to as a “baby farm” in North Middletown, Kentucky. Beauford Hall lived from 1902 until 1991, and was also referred to as Preacher Hall. Anna Greene’s husband Sherman contributed this photo of unknown date. He brought the photo to the International Museum of the Horse’s History Harvest for the Chronicle of African Americans in the Horse Industry on April 13, 2019. The American Saddlebred Museum also holds information on Beauford Hall’s life story.
