SOLD OUT - Reagan the Horseman


Please join us on October  9, 2022 at 5:30 pm at the National Sporting Library for a “behind the scenes” portrayal of Ronald Reagan the Horseman, presented by Barbara Riggs, retired Deputy Director of the U.S. Secret Service, Middleburg resident and lifelong horsewoman.

During Ms Riggs’ 31 year career with the Secret Service (1975-2006) she served six different presidents. From 1981-1986 she was assigned to the presidential protection detail for President Reagan, and spent many hours “riding the trails” with him at Camp David, Md., and at his beloved Rancho del Cielo, located atop the Santa Ynez Mountains northwest of Santa Barbara, Ca.

The former Hollywood actor, TV host, governor of California and president of the United States was a lifelong horseman.

During this presentation, Ms. Riggs will highlight the role horses played in Reagan’s life and will illuminate his passion for horses. With some photographs never seen before in public, she will also share her personal experiences and humorous stories from her time riding with the former president.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn about a little known aspect of Reagan’s life!
