Dr Corpolongo Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Dr. John D. Corpolongo rode in his first Chief Joseph Trail ride in 1970 and continued to participate as its
official ride physician until his death in 2012. He also served as ride physician on the ApHC approved
Apache Land, Land of Liberty, and Sheltowee Trail rides. He was elected to the ApHC Trail Ride Hall of
Fame in 1995 and the general Hall of Fame in 2002. His greatest satisfaction came from helping others
while enjoying time spent on the trail riding his Appaloosas.
Dr. John Corpolonga passed away March 29, 2012 in Gallup New Mexico after riding the Caballos Del Sol
trail ride in Arizona.
Mike and Martha Howard from McKenny TX donated to the CJTRYE for a perpetual scholarship to be
awarded yearly in Dr. John’s honor. Joy Corpolongo and Corita Parker Du Bose have also donated to this
