Herbie, a 17hh gray Holsteiner gelding, retired to Ryerss Farm on April 2, 2016, at the age of 21. In his younger days, he was an equitation horse having the show name “Amused”. Herbie has competed in both junior national equitation finals (USEF Medal & Maclay) and adult equitation national finals (Ariat National Adult Medal, Monarch International Adult Medal). Herbie enjoyed his time as a show horse and helped his owner win many ribbons and year-end awards. His favorite part of horse showing was getting a peppermint when he came out of the show ring. Herbie has earned a well-deserved retirement.
Herbie’s stablemates Monte and Sophie are also both retired at Ryerss so the three will enjoy a wonderful family reunion here!
