 They Called Her "Reckless"

On Thursday, September 22nd at 7pm in Connecticut author Janet Barrett will present the true story of a small Korean pony named “Reckless” who hauled ammunition to the front lines, saved many lives, raised spirits and won the love and respect of all who knew her during her two years with the Marines during the Korean War at the Plainville Public Library.

Janet has written a book about this inspiring story, “They Called Her Reckless- A True Story of War, Love and One Extraordinary Horse” has earned positive reviews from Korean Veterans and others. Including one from Jerry Vilbig, Weapons Company, First Battalion, Seventh Marine Regiment, Korea, 1952-53 which reads in part “That little mare was something -- a real warhorse. I wish she had been with our regiment! How she and those guys were able to function together was incredible. Janet Barrett has done a terrific job of bringing together her whole story.”

From the moment she heard about Reckless, Janet Barrett knew she would write a book. Her experiences as a horsewoman gave her a particular appreciation of the tight bond that developed between Reckless and her fellow Marines, from which the story springs. Barrett has loved and been fascinated by horses all her life, and for 25 years almost obsessively rode, owned, and cared for them.
