Potato Richardson was born on Feb 26th 1943 in Troy, Michigan not far from the B-M Ranch. There he got a taste of riding horses and never lost it. In 1972 he was exposed to the sport of long distance horse riding starting with his first ride. Tevis 1oo Mile One Day Race through the Sierra Nevada Mountains from Lake Tahoe to Auburn, California. That event has spurred his horse breeding and riding worldwide ever since. His compassion for the Arab horse and the Arab/Shagya Hungarian bloodline have instigated his desire and energy to levels that few have achieved in the Endurance riding sport. He has competed in many countries and continues to produce top horses that perform very well in the sport.
