Sandra Johns Harris Davidson, 64, of Columbus, died Jan. 29, 2013 in the Hospice House of the Carolina Foothills.
Born in Erwin, Penn., she graduated from Ohio State University in 1973, receiving her Doctorate in Veterinary Science. She was a member of Phi Zeta, achieving a top five placing in her class.
Sandy practiced medicine in Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio and moved to Polk County in 1998, coming from Chagrin Falls, Ohio. She practiced veterinary medicine locally at Landrum Veterinary Hospital, Bonnie Brae Veterinary Hospital and was the volunteer veterinarian for Foothills Humane Society. She was a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Bainbridge Volunteer Fire Department, and the North East Ohio Dressage Association.
Sandy and her husband enjoyed breeding, raising and training Trakehner horses. She had a passion for dressage and loved to ride every evening. She was an enthusiastic practitioner of yoga and also enjoyed spending hours in her garden accompanied by her cats, Rocky and Yogi.
A long time member and former board of directors member of the Foothills Riding Club, Sandy gave back to the sport she loved with all her heart and soul. Chilly, drizzly days, hot humid days – if you walked past the judge’s stand at an FRC dressage show in Tryon, you would see her sitting there next to the judge serving as a scribe.
