It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that our beloved mare Ruby has passed away this morning. She was a cherished friend and a kind soul, and she will be dearly missed. For over 20 years, Ruby had been with us, always willing and dedicated. When Russ first found her all those years ago, he chose her with an eye for a fancy driving pony. A saddlebred out of the revered Supreme Sultan line, Ruby had a flare and a certain sass that made you just adore her.
She also became essential to our riding program, especially for teaching many a new and young rider how to post the trot. As a member of our Pegasus Autism Riding Program, she was a gentle and steady guide for her riders, particularly enjoying the attention when a news story was produced about the program.
At the ripe old age of 27, Ruby retired to the Whispering Meadows farm, where she enjoyed her last year of life in sunny pastures and the kind care provided by the Meadows family. She was well-loved within her herd of horse friends, who all took extra care of their elderly matron.
We hope you cherish your memories with Ruby as much as we do on this bright sunny day, when she left this world for lush and green pastures on the other side. Thank you Ruby for all you taught us! We will miss you!
