The endurance trails are short one mighty endurance horse. Jaziret Bey Musc was put down Friday after a bout with cancer.
Owned by Steph Teeter, Rhett was sound and snorty and fit to the end, with his final endurance ride being over his Idaho home trails, in November's Owhyee Chills No Frills ride, where Steph earned her 15,000 miles on him.
By Scooter Bey Musc out of Justy Karliya, by Witez, the 23-year-old gelding takes with him a record of 6520 AERC endurance miles. Always pulling on the reins and always carrying his tail like a flag in the air, Rhett conquered the old Outlaw Trail, the Pony Express Trail, and earned a Tevis buckle (at age 19), and a cover shot on the Endurance News magazine. He takes with him the admiration of those rode him and the hearts of those who knew him.
