The Loss of a Friend - Kevin Jay Booser



by Abbie Felton-Trexler

On March 7 the Morgan world lost a dear friend. Long time breeder, owner and fan of the Morgan horse, Kevin Jay Booser, 41, lost his life while swimming in the ocean off of Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Kevin bred horses under the farm name Magnetic Morgans in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Supported in his love for Morgan and Saddlebred horses by his grandfather, Kevin bred six Morgans with the Magnetic prefix. Last year his final foal was born, Magnetic Adagio (by the late Raynyday Grand Finale), who Kevin dreamed of showing in the dressage division. A fixture at such shows as Mason Dixon, Children’s Benefit and the Grand National, Kevin will be missed by all of his friends who appreciated his friendly nature, overwhelming kindness and enthusiasm for life. In Kevin's memory, a fund is being raised to sponsor the Morgan Dressage division at his favorite show, The Mason Dixon Classic, April 24-26. Kevin's family will attend the presentation, and will be on hand to assist in handing out the awards in his name. Please consider making a donation to the show that Kevin so dearly loved, and never missed.
Please direct donations to:
Amanda Krall
115N Railroad St
Myerstown, PA 17067

Checks may be made out to:
The Mason Dixon Classic Horse Show
