This is just a small tribute to a big man, “R” Petermann, who loved his horse and everyone else’s as well, who loved nature and all its creatures. This is what made judging competitive trail riding a perfect venue for him. He was the judge you looked forward to meeting on the trail. Always quick with a smile and an encouraging word. He loved being a part of the adventure, and its horses and people. Thanks judge “R” for letting us be a part of yours.
“R” lost his battle with cancer at his home September 4, 2013.
