Rhonda S. Remembers Sid

October 12, 2011

I worked for Sid Spencer in the 1970’s when Bandido was there. What an amazing women and horse.

I was only 9 years old, when I started riding with her. I grew up at Lopez Lake.  She started the riding stable there. I would go to the ranch and get the horses ready and work all day with her. I was there until 1976-77.

She was a gruff women, but I learned a lot from her and her mom. One of her best friends worked with us, Rose Pein.  She loved her Morgans. 

I wish I would have paid more attention to what she was trying to teach me about the bloodlines and breeding.  It is great to see that what she loved is still going after all this time.
