Seldom Seen Retires


2005 Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame inductee, Seldom Seen, proved that top horses don’t have to have the best breeding, or be the biggest horse in the barn. Standing at only 14.2 hands, Seldom Seen and Lendon Gray compiled an impressive resume including USDF Horse of the Year titles at Prix St Georges and Intermediare I, winning the individual gold medal at the 1981 US Olympic Festival, and placed in the top six at Grand Prix in the annual USDF Horse of the Year standings three times.

Owned by Peg Whitehurst, Seldom Seen was retired in a ceremony at Dressage at Devon 1987. After his retirement from competition, Seldom Seen continued to be an ambassador for the sport of dressage by doing exhibitions for thousands of spectators and bringing dressage to the every man. He passed away in 1996.

USDF strongly recommends all riders wear protective headgear when mounted.
