Phyllis Sheridan began showing road horses and hackney horses with her husband John in 1951 until their retirement in 1996. Phyllis was an accomplished driver, a meticulous caretaker and John’s toughest critic. When they went to look at a road horse prospect in the Kingston area John decided against purchasing the horse. After dinner that same evening Phyllis turned to John and said I think you had better go back and buy that horse, that horse was Page Boy who went on to win the wagon stake at the Royal Winter Fair in 1975 and 1982. Phyllis is a very soft spoken woman who knows her horses. In 2009 they were very honored and pleased to be inducted into the American Road Horse and Pony Association Hall of Fame during the World’s Championship Horse Show in Louisville Kentucky. Phyllis is a wonderful cook and always came to the shows prepared with lots of extra goodies for any visitors that might come to their trailer or tack room.
