Remembering "Bazy" Tankersley

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 5:00am

The Arabian horse community mourns the death of Ruth McCormick “ Bazy” Tankersley.

"Bazy Tankersley, age 91, died peacefully at her home in Tuscon, Arizona, on Tuesday, February 5, 2013. Best known as owner of Al-Marah Arabians, Bazy was one of the most prolific breeders in the overall Arabian industry, with over 2,800 registered foals."

Perhaps more important than the number of registered foals was the indelible mark she left in promoting the industry at large. The entire breed owes her a tremendous debt of gratitude.

"In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to: Horse Tales Literacy Project, 3081 Arabian Nights Blvd., Kissimmee, FL 34747."
