A Salute to the Sultan

See the great Supreme Sultan as you have never seen him before!

Please join Saddlebred legend and “Silver Saddle” author Bob Ruxer at Andrea Hartmeyer Johns’ Equine Art booth in the Gaited Gallery under the Red Mile grandstand at the Lexington Junior League Horse Show Friday, July 11, for A Salute to the Sultan!

You are invited to join Bob between 5:30-6:30 p.m., before the show’s evening session, to see the immortal Supreme Sultan as you have never seen him before. Andy has created a new painting of the legendary stallion who has had such a profound influence on our breed.

Light refreshments will be served as you visit, share stories, and enjoy great Saddlebred company. Bob will be on hand to share memories of his life with the great Sultan and sign complimentary cards featuring Andy’s new painting. You also are invited to bring your copy of Bob’s wonderful memoire, “The Silver Saddle: Memories of Alvin Ruxer and Marty Mueller.”

You are more than welcome to bring your Sultan-related stories and photos to Bob at this very special event. If you can’t be there, you’re encouraged to share your stories and pictures on Facebook, either on Andy’s page here: or Bob’s page here:

Bob plans to share some very special Sultan items with those on hand – an original shoe, halter, papers, photos, and his most steadfast supporter. Rare photos of Sultan signed by Bob will be available for purchase. Proceeds from these sales, along with a portion of Andy’s sales during the show, will benefit Bob’s special charity, the UPHA Benevolent Fund.

Come join the fun! Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime event!
