On Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2005, Mr. Chili Pepper passed away following surgery. The nine-year-old gelding was owned by Pollack’s Silver Spur Ranch and loved by the entire Pollack family. Mr. Chili Pepper was especially loved by Ashley Diamond Pollack. The team recently won the Youth 11 and Under Park Pleasure class at the International. Ashley Diamond Pollack began her show ring career in the Lead Line class with Mr. Chili Pepper when he was a two-year-old. Mr. Chili Pepper carried the Pollack family to many blue ribbon rides and was Ashley’s personal trail mount and she loved riding him on the beach. He was extremely gentle and versatile and won blues in many different divisions.
