Rutgers Young Horse Teaching and Research Program
Graduate Reunion


July 21, 2012
Bucks Mill Park, Colts Neck, NJ

We had 19 equine graduates , 17 of them ridden on the trails with all years except '05: Miss Genie ('00), Galahad and Sydney ('01), Miss Kitty ('02), Blaze ('03), Tootsiepop and Hip Hip Hooray (Hippie) ('04),
Cluedo ('06), Fiona ('07), Turkleton ('08), My Fair Lady (Eliza), Hank Jr, Sir Lionel and Evita (Bonnie Jean) all from '09, Firedance ('10) and mustangs Sierra and Santana from 2011! Owners with out horses showed up to brag about Jasmine ('05), Prince Phillip (Lars)  ('06), Huckleberry (Gus) and
Santiago('07), Honky Tonk (Now Col.Hank Rutgers) and Woodstock, ('10) in addition to students Lexey Booth, Rebekah Verdieck and Kevin Brewer who helped with saddle pad sales and photography. Dr. Malinowski came with her RU Grad friend, Wendy Gale, riding their Standardbreds; long time supporters, Susan and John Samtak, brought their paso finos. Over all, with 70+ registered participants and $1090.00 in the Poker Pace "pot" it was a very successful event! The winner of the poker hands turned out to be a Rutgers graduate who then donated a portion of her win to the program. We made $680 in sale of the pads and donations! Proceeds will be used to support the new NJHorseInformation endeavor.
