Zaire is an elegant 16 h bay thoroughbred who retired to Ryerss on March 16, 2016. His former owner bought him in 2004 at age 11 from a gentleman who was interested in basic dressage. She worked with him in basic dressage for a year or so, entering him in OVCTA shows, where he earned several ribbons. After having heart surgery in 2006, she decided to return to trail riding, which they both loved and had many trails to follow in Chester Springs from their farm and also various trips to other areas. They always rode with Moses, a Tennessee Walker who was a good friend. In the words of his former owner, “Zaire was and always will be a special horse and I look forward to visiting as long as we live. I have given up riding now but they were the best years of my life. (I hope to have Moses join him in the future)”.
