Equine Obituary - My Lady Darling



The walking horse community is saddened to learn of the passing of My Lady Darling. One of the greatest plantation pleasure show mares of the 1990s, My Lady Darling was humanely laid to rest on Sunday, August 28, 2011, at Stone Gait Farm where she has been loved and pampered since her retirement from the show ring in 2000.

Purchased by the Arthur Gordon family as a three-year-old, she carried Susan, Kelly, and Stephanie Gordon, along with trainer Danny Wooten, to many Celebration blue ribbons in the plantation pleasure division over the course of her show ring career from 1994 through 2000.

She then retired to a life of leisure and raised four good foals for the Gordons, two by A Specialist. My Lady Darling was by Pride’s Generator and out of an Ebony Masterpiece mare and had all the attributes of a flat-shod show horse. With a style all her own, she brought excitement to the pleasure division for many years and was a beloved member of the Gordon family. She will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.
