Secret Lives of Horses – Ridley & Chalk: Schoolmasters Supreme

Ridley, 40, and Chalk, 38, were two of Karen Jones’ best lesson horses, “co-workers” at New Era Farm in Maryland for over 25 years. Although they certainly knew each other during the time they were working, the geldings had little interaction and were never turned out together. Since Karen moved her business to Aiken in the fall of 2017, however, both horses have been retired and share a large paddock and roomy shed.

The Aiken Horse publication’s writer, Nancy Johnson, did a wonderful story about these two schoolmasters who have retired to Aiken, SC. Read their heartwarming story from The Aiken Horse June-July 2019 issue.
