On October 16, 2018, Centaur Rising lost one of our beloved school horses, Palaermo. He had lived at Anchorage Farm since 2002 and was 25 years old. Mo’s huge rhythmical gaits were great for seat lessons – even the canter. His gentle nature allowed him to be “adopted” by 30 horse campers 2011-18.
Nine students exhibited Palaermo at recognized dressage shows. These were as follows: Christina Rudman; Mike Lacey & Elyssa Redden in 2010; Faith Lindstrom, Ana Joros and Sean Lozensky in 2011; Sarah Gates in 2013; Bobbi Spinsby in 2016 and Kaitlyn Orton in 2018.
The veterinary costs associated with his final days, $1015, are hard to absorb – especially this time of year. Donations in Palaermo's name will be greatly appreciated.

Natalie Miller: "[Mo] was such an amazing soul and will be greatly missed."
Bobbi Spinsby: "I'm so sorry for the loss of Palaermo. He was an amazing boy and I will forever cherish the lessons he taught me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to know him and love him."
