View Full Version : Looking for former trainer - DeeDee Branch...

Probably a long shot, here…but thought I would try!

I am looking for my first English trainer that taught me how to RIDE. Her name is/was DeeDee Branch. I rode at Double D Stables in Jacksonville, FL, off of 118th Street on the Westside of town. She taught me from 1982 – 1985. She owned an OTTB named Gabrielle - "Gabe". He came down with colic which required surgery and was able to make a full recovery. If I remember correctly – she did some eventing shows…however, I never went to any (I was in 4th – 6th grade). She left Double D Stables and went over to JW Ranch during that time (with her horse). After 1985, she moved to North Carolina, I believe…and I think she got married – but I have no idea.

I’d love to find out where she is now…what she is doing and if she is still training or in the horse business anymore.

What I remember most about her…she taught me “if it has 4 legs and is called a horse…get on and RIDE”.

Any leads/comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
