“His name is Pilgrim because he is going to go a long way” Val said to Ron as that chestnut colt’s head emerged at foaling, on Ron’s Birthday in 1969.
Some 8 years later, on 30th July,1977, Val wrote home from England: - “Yes it’s true – though we hardly believe it. Ralvon Pilgrim has been judged the overall winner – Supreme Champion of the International classes for Purebred Arabs at the Annual Summer Show of the Arab Horse at Ascot Paddocks, Berkshire, England.
‘PILGRIM STANDS SUPREME’ APPEARED AS A BOLD TYPE HEADING IN THE London Daily Telegraph on 1st August, 1977 … the day after Judging. This should have convinced us but even then, Ron and I were certain that we would wake up and find that the show was yet to be held.
Yes indeed …. ‘that chestnut colt did go a long way.’
