Jean Schuyler passed away on April 17th of this year. She was a young 92 years of age.
We had the extreme pleasure of being able to call Jean a “Hearts Rider”.
Jean rode on Tuesdays at noon with our Program Director, Susan Weber. Honey, our seasoned Quarter Horse mare, was her mount. Jean, with the help of a leader and two side walkers, would ride for about 30 minutes, both in the arena and on the trails. Despite needing support, Jean could still find her modified two point position, and she never missed an opportunity to remind you who was in control!
Jean rode until a week before she went into hospice. She was the definition of a true horsewoman. We will miss her immensely.
