American Saddlebred World Loses Eleanor H. Pedersen
Eleanor H. Pedersen died February 11, 2013. She was the beloved wife of the late Herbert Pedersen and loving mother of Linda Beltz [Homer], Paul Pedersen and Mark Pedersen [Laurie]. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
Together Eleanor and Herbert owned and operated the American Saddlebred breeding and training facility Herbell Farm in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They also worked with the American Saddlebred Horse Association of Michigan (ASHAM) and helped to encourage the development of the show circuit in Michigan. Upon closing the business, Eleanor continued to own and exhibit horses.
During her later years Eleanor enjoyed driving in the Fine Harness division. She exhibited such horses as World’s Champion Metro Heirea and Gothic Bronze. Her enthusiasm for the American Saddlebred horse is one she shared with her daughter Linda Beltz and granddaughter Nicolle Beltz Tolliver.
