Buddy retired to Ryerss Farm on June 7, 2015 at the age of 21. He was used as a
school horse at Watchung Stables for 15 years (from 1998 – 2013). He was there
with Seven and Niles (other Ryerss retirees) and he helped teach kids of all levels
how to ride. He started in the advanced group of riders and eventually worked with the advanced beginner group, teaching kids how to canter. He was also used every weekend for public trail rides with people who had never been on a horse. He was always a favorite among the children and the public because of his kind nature and super sweet personality.
Buddy is a chestnut Quarter Horse who stands 16 hands high, and lives in the main barn.
