Rick McMasters

The Appaloosa community and the horse world lost one of the good guys last week. Rick McMasters passed away March 14th. His was a familiar face to anyone who has attended a major ApHC show or any of a number of other breed events. Rick was an ApHC judge for 38 years and held cards with other breeds as well. We’re still counting the number of National and World shows where he’s been a ring steward, judges monitor or assistant-something. Anyone who ever had a conversation with Rick knows that he loved his family, good horses, good music and good stories. To say that we’ll miss him doesn’t quite go far enough.

Memorial contributions can be made to: Rick McMasters’ Scholarship Fund at the Appaloosa Youth Foundation, c/o ApHC, 2720 W. Pullman Rd., Moscow, ID 83843.
