Remembering Dr. Jerry Modell

Longtime FMHA member and Morgan Horse breeder and supporter Dr. Jerry Modell passed away on April 14, 2020. Jerry enjoyed breeding and showing Morgans for many decades in Florida, as well as New England and at the Morgan Grand National in Oklahoma City each October.

Shirley and Jerry Modell

Jerry was a nationally recognized physician, having served as Chair of the Anesthesiology Department at the University of Florida for 23 years. He and wife Dr. Shirley Graves Modell bred Morgans under their Gradell Farm banner since the early 1980’s, and were co-owners of the famous sire Tug Hill Commando.

One of their first purchases was UVM Hester, who they bred to Treble’s Willy Wild, which was the genesis of a lifelong partnership and friendship with Carol Hudson and Cheri Barber. Jerry loved to show and he was always ready to get in the cart behind one of his homebreds.

Jerry drives Gradell’s Center Of Action

The Modells have always been generous supporters of the FMHA, as well as Marion Therapeutic Riding Association, and we send our condolences to the entire Modell family.


The show facility is closing until April 13th.
