Richard “Pinky” Edmonds, Popular Horseman, Dead at Eighty-Six

Richard “Pinky” Edmonds, 86, died on Wednesday, March 9 from post-operative complications following knee replacement surgery the week before, according to Jon Massey of Folsom, Louisiana.

“He will be profoundly missed by everyone who knew him,” said Massey.

“Pinky was one of the first real horsemen that I met when I started foxhunting,” said Jef Murdock of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. “He is much beloved and well known in the northeast foxhunting scene from Connecticut to New York State and long ago was involved with packs in Aiken, South Carolina. He was an old-fashioned groom who lived the real life of caring for horses and the people who rode them.”

Funeral services will be held in Millbrook, New York on Saturday, March 19.
