Debby Nicely and Bric's Pebble

Team #116

I grew up on the east coast and rode during the summers as a child.  We had a country place in Westchester County, north of New York, and we regularly kept two horses, borrowed or rented, which my sisters and I rode through the extensive bridle trail system in our area.  In winter our family returned to the city, so horse ownership was not an option.

Pebble was bred by Donald Shukar and acquired for racing by Kenneth and Maureen Alhadeff.  Her sire, Council Rock, was by Secretariat; her dam, BricPac, by Sir Robot.  She had many qualities, but apparently a desire to be first was not one of them, and when Ken decided to give up on her, Maureen professed a desire to see her go to a "good home."  Through a grapevine she was offered to a friend of mine who, unable to fit a horse into her budget, phoned me one day:  "Debby, would you like a horse?"  Not a thought I had been entertaining, but when I saw this gangly just-turned-three-year-old, I admired her conformation and quickly warmed to the idea. 

Chance brought me a few months later to Ralph Dreitzler's barn, where I quickly started to learn some elements of riding that my childhood summers had not included.  Pebble turned out to be a worthy mount, with some amusing quirks, and I learned some basics of dressage as well as a correct approach to jumping. 

We went to several events, and I joined the Woodbrook Hunt, an activity which Pebble thoroughly enjoyed.  Alas, arthritis soon put limitations on her jumping, in spite of her enthusiasm for it.  Over time I became increasingly knowledgeable about horse nutrition and care, and Pebble was able to gallop and jump happily and effectively through the years.

After many disappointing failures, I was finally successful in breeding her and now have her 9-year-old very talented offspring.  But my riding was seriously interrupted three years ago when I slipped into an icy pothole and broke a thigh.  Complications kept me from riding for two and a half years.  The prospect of joining the Century Club led me to work diligently to get back into riding shape; neither of us has quite rediscovered the fountain of youth, but we can still enjoy ourselves together.

Debby and Pebble completed Training Level Test 2 at the Whidbey (WA) Equestrian Center "Summers End" dressage show on August 25th, 2012.
