    Default Cool photo of Ronald Reagan's tack room in California

    I hope the link works. It's the 8th photo graph if it doesn't link right.

    I disagreed with his policies, but he was a real horseman.

    It is very nice. I have been to the Hermitage and a few of the others, all grand. Thanks for posting this.

    Gorgeous!! My husbands adoptive father worked on his cars before security risks, sadly hubby is too young to have ever gone and visited the ranch! But all I hear from the old timers around here (not many left...) is he was seriously a true horseman.

    Years ago I was polo groom at Will Rogers State Park. One season he started coming up just to watch the games. Mrs. Reagan never came, but he always sat with a nurse and had several security agents in tow. I'm still kicking myself for being to shy to get a picture taken with him. He was always very friendly and smiling for anyone who came up to him (you had to be checked out by security first). He looked happy just watching the horses.
