Welcome to the site featuring Gail's Anglo-Trakehner

"Teacher's Pet"

         I owned Pet's dam, Tony Levy (Tb) and had her bred to the famous, 1984 Olympic Gold and Silver medal winner, gray Trakehner, Abdullah, in 1979.  Being a teacher, I had often thought that "Teacher's Pet" would be a super name for a favorite horse, so when foaled, April 14, 1980, that became her name.  She was a bright, flashy chestnut with a lot of spirit and presence.  Over the years she and I have done a little bit of everything from trail riding to jumping to dressage.  Pet is the horse by which I compare all other horses--we knew exactly what to expect from each other and shared many firsts with each other:  She was the first horse moved to the new farm, the first horse ridden here, and sadly, the first horse I had to put down.
