Mr. Barletta talked about his book Riding With Reagan: From The White House to the Ranch, published by Citadel Press. John Barletta worked as a U.S. Secret Service Agent for nearly twenty years beginning in 1974. When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, Mr. Barletta headed the equestrian team and later was assigned head of the Reagan Ranch detail. The book documents the author’s experiences protecting former President Reagan while in office and in the years after. Mr. Barletta was an experienced equestrian and he utilized these skills when he rode with the former president and first lady on their ranch in California, Camp David, and Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. His book relates both personal stories of his interactions with the president and security incidents. Following his remarks he answered questions from the audience.
Mr. Bartlett spoke at a celebration of what would have been President Reagan’s 94th birthday held by the Young America’s Foundation at the Carriage Museum in Santa Barbara. The Foundation is renovating Rancho del Cielo as a presidential center. close
