Eisenhower National Historic Park


The entire family is eagerly awaiting the arrival at Gettysburg of the Quarter Horse. David is beside himself with joy and although he scorns any danger, I have assured his mother and grandmother that you are sending a gentle and tractable animal.
Eisenhower letter to Congressman
Walter Rogers, July 1955

You might have found eight or nine horses in these stables during Eisenhower's day. He was familiar with horses from his childhood in Kansas and his cavalry training at West Point. The family kept quarter Horses and Arabians at the farm, and over the years the horses produced a number of foals.

The president sometimes rode. But his son and daughter-in-law John and Barbara and their children were the more frequent riders. The family enjoyed riding around the farm and on the trails on the battlefield. When the family rode beyond the confines of the farm, Secret Service agents were required to follow by car or horseback.
