    OMG this thread brings back so many great memories! I rode at Pegasus-Meadowbrook from age 9 when we moved to the area from New York, that was 1966, until I was 14 and my parents bought my first pony from the Littles. Several months after that we moved my pony closer to where we lived, to board at Wheaton Park Stables. They had such a great program at P-M, I remember going to camp there in the summers and how in the morning they'd put all the mares and then all the geldings in the arena and gallop them around. The tetherball in the circle in the center of the driveway at Pegasus and how the barn was built into the hill. I remember many of the horses and ponies already mentioned, plus Daddy Long Legs (tall chestnut), Sherman (because he was built like a tank), Sassafras (Sassy). Farnley Netta had that gray in her tail and I remember the first time I rode her, what a nice ride she was. My first horse show was a student show there, I did walk trot and won a blue ribbon. Trail riding in Rock Creek Park, and sometimes we'd go to some arena in the middle of the park and jump. So much more... I went back some years ago to see it (I don't live in the area) and where Pegasus was it was houses. I was devastated. So cool to hear about others, but I don't remember many people names.

    Of note, one must remember dear old Claude who's bench is forever in place still at Meadowbrook w/ plaque (Claud's Bench") I do think they removed his "don't even think of parking here sign" but that must've been some time after the Littles.

    Lots has been posted since I was here last. Yes, now I remember Carmen as you have described her. I have a few photos - just don't know how to post them here. I also have one of their old brochures from when I was an instructor. Thanks for reminding me of Dee's last name - I was lost on that one!

    Ah yes, Sherman. I was there when he was purchased and enjoyed being a part of the naming process for him. Darkhorsecj, we were there at the same time. I was a student in 1966-67 and then an instructor for a year or so.. One of the photos I have is of Claude leading the App mare I worked with some, Glory Bee. Another photo is of me with The Elite drinking some Coke out of a can, a favorite of hers.
