Sergeant Reckless

Sometimes you find yourself in the right place at the right time. This happened at Breyerfest 2019. I can’t remember where I was coming from nor my final destination, but I found myself near the indoor warm up arena. I saw a few waiting Civil War Union dressed horses and riders.


I turned around and saw servicemen leading a black horse.


A chestnut mare with military attire appeared and I stayed as they maneuvered the two horses for a photo op.


During the photo op a few people mentioned going to the Sergeant Reckless statue for pictures and I found myself joining the small entourage. Robin Hutton, the author of Sergeant Reckless, was a part of the group. Silly me forgot to bring my copy of the book to Breyerfest!


It was slow moving because people wanted to take photos with the mare. She was adorable, so why wouldn’t you? It gave me a chance to take pictures of her tack.


You can never have too many reference photos.


Eventually we made it to our destination. The Kentucky Horse Park unveiled their statue of Sergeant Reckless in 2018. The Kentucky Horse Park isn’t the only place to have a sculpture of the mare. Susan Bensema Young of Timaru Star II saw another statue in Virginia.


Not Sergeant Reckless posed next to the statue.


A Sgt. Reckless blanket was brought out and more photos ensued.


I’m happy I was in the right place at the right time to take these photos!

    Thanks so much Kristian! But it wasn’t Florida where I saw her statue. It was Virginia, at the Marine Corps Museum.
