More information

Penny Chenery was born in 1922 in New Rochelle, New York, and was raised in Pelham Manor, New York. The youngest of three children, she was named Helen Bates Chenery after her mother. Her father, Christopher Chenery, a Virginian who grew up poor, was a utilities financier who founded Southern Natural Gas Company, among other utilities. He also founded Meadow Stable, a thoroughbred racing operation and horse breeding business at The Meadow in Caroline County.

Chenery had a love of horses from a young age, and learned to ride at age five. Believing her appreciation for horses was gleaned from her father, Chenery stated, "My father really loved horses. I think a parent often communicates his love to a child." She shared many of her father's interest and goals, including her education. She attended the Madeira School in McLean, Virginia, a highly competitive girls' high school with facilities for riding and housing horses brought to the school by a number of students.
