On September 8, 2013, the Show Horses of Watchung (SHOW) retired Niles to Ryerss Farm. Niles, an eighteen year old bay Quarter Horse gelding, served for three years in the Watchung Stables Troop Program. As an intermediate-level lesson horse, Niles was always the first pick and was sure to consistently place in the Pleasure Division.
Over time, Niles developed lameness issues in both front feet that forced an early retirement. Since his arrival here at Ryerss, he has lived in the main barn and is enjoying his retirement!
