He looked forward eagerly to the Caballos del Sol ride each spring as marking the end of winter. Al had a passion for riding and breeding the native American Appaloosa horse, was well known to many in the Appaloosa Horse Club, and over the years completed the entire 1,300-mile Chief Jo- seph Trail ride in 100-mile annual segments. In his memory, a public 501(c)3 non-profit named the C.A. Maxey Appaloosa Heritage Foundation has been established. The Foundation will care for his remaining Appaloosa horses and maintain his breeding program. It will also help teach the Appaloosa and Nez Perce history as only he knew it and could tell it. A key Foundation goal is to continue the 60 years of se- lective breeding now represented by a group of nine of Maxey's remaining Appaloosas sharing the traits of endurance, tough- ness and athletic trail hardiness typified by his last and favor- ite saddle mate, Magic Carpet. Al's herd has been relocated to 8158 Woods Rose Lane, Loveland, CO 80538. The Foundation program can be found at In lieu of gifts to the family, donations in his memory can be made to the C.A.
