Equine Advocates welcomes second Army Caisson horse, prepares for 21st annual gala
There’s a 140-acre stretch of land in Valatie that is now home to two horses that served our country in high-profile ceremonies. They’re called Army Caisson horses and last year, we introduced you to Tyler. New to Equine Advocates is Sergeant York. He is one of 80 equines on the property owned and managed by Susan Wagner and her sister, Karen. At 31 years old, Sergeant York is now enjoying retirement. He served as the riderless horse leading the procession at President Ronald Reagan’s funeral. And he’s sure to be a star on Sunday when the non-profit for equine protection hosts its 21st annual gala to raise critical money for the rescue from slaughter of these animals and their care.
