Art Gaytan

We received this note from Dennis Dean:

I just received word that Art Gaytan (Pahrump, NV) passed away last monday. He was a horseman until the end. He also battled cancer for the last several years and seemed to be doing well. Art was inducted into the Pinto Judges Hall of Fame last year and has been an ApHC judge for over 30years. He was a very successful trainer and an active Director for the Calizona ApHC in the 1970’s. He judged a show for Calizona just last year and planned to retire this year. He was fun, knowledgeable and giving. He will be missed.

Regards,
Dennis Dean

    Art was a dear friend. I stabled with him when he was at the L.A. Equesrian center in the 80’s. he trained an appaloosa stallion with me and we did some shows. We kept in touch over the years, but I hadn’t see him since he was Grand Marshall in the Rose Parade mid-90’s? I would like to send my rehgrds to Joyce, Jessica and Art Jr. If you have a contact, that would be appreciated.
