Abdullah's Halter
text taken from Valley News by
Sally Fox:
" Having come across a trunk of ribbons and coolers acquired at prestigious intenational competitions, Sue decided to put together a display of some of Abdullah's special treasures for the Saddle Up for Roswell Event at Chestnut Ridge. I was honored to be polishing the World Cup (keeper) trophy while Sue buffed up the name plate on Abdullah's Halter
She had already decied to donate that halter to an auction being held at WEG in KY for a Charity Auction that awards grants to talented riders on Trakehner Horses.
Sue confided 'I had misgivings about doing this and put a good reserve bid on it'. It proved to be unnecessary....the halter brought the highest bid of the entire auction bring in $5,500! I was astounded, thrilled and humbled by this event. Who would guess?
Who indeed? to own a piece of history is a special thrill that many can appreciate. I just wonder if the high bidder will actually use the halter-perhaps on an Olympic hopful, or just a very special friend. How about you?"
Thank you Sally
