COMMENTS FROM THE PUBLISHER

Photo Manipulation

T

©DOWLING

he 2008 U.S. National Championships in Tulsa, Okla., was my first nationals as the publisher of Arabian Horse Times magazine, and I want to extend my thanks to everyone I met at the show who offered their encouragement and well wishes. They are greatly appreciated, and I wish to reiterate at this time that I am always interested in hearing your thoughts and opinions. In that regard, individuals in our community often conveyed to me during the show their concerns and misgivings about the different issues that currently occupy the Arabian horse community’s consciousness. One of those issues was the manipulation of photos. So, it is my desire at this time to take this opportunity to make clear to all our subscribers and clients the position of Arabian Horse Times magazine as it pertains to photo manipulation. AHT, Inc. dba Arabian Horse Times is not responsible for the accuracy of advertising content or manipulation of images that are provided by the advertiser. It is impossible for Arabian Horse Times to police the digital images that are supplied to us for advertising purposes, as many of those images come directly from the photographers or are already placed in an advertisement supplied by an outside designer. Simply, it is a Catch-22. However, it is important for you to note that Arabian Horse Times does not manipulate images in regards to a horse’s conformation. We will on occasion take out an offensive element (fence, lead rope, etc.) in a photograph, but in no way, I repeat, will we ever alter the conformation of the horse. Arabian Horse Times’ mission is to inform, educate and enrich. We will indeed provide you with the information you need (in a balanced fashion) to make your own decisions on the issues, but in the end it is up to your discretion. Yet, it is important to always remember that those decisions or choices you make will ultimately affect the horse that we all love … the Arabian.

2008 Canadian Nationals

2008 Canadian National Show— A Great Arabian Nationals by Christy Egan

C


2008 Canadian Nationals

CANADA It was difficult for Canada to top last year’s 50th anniversary show, and certainly the 51st show began quietly and then gathered momentum as the week progressed. For many Americans and Canadians, this show is the highlight of the season. Even the youngest riders, arriving fresh from victories at the Youth Nationals just a few weeks earlier, call the Canadian Nationals their favorite. If you listen to all of the comments about Canada from owners, trainers and riders, it condenses to the same refrain: It’s a warm, exhibitor-friendly event, and everyone has a very good time. Compared to its south-of-the-border sisters, the Youth and U.S. National Championships, the Canadian Nationals is small. This year the numbers were down a bit, but not out of keeping with previous years. Total horses were about 800, compared to 925 in 2007. The lower headcount just seemed to make for a more comfortable show schedule. The competition was outstanding, and included an excellent cross section of top Arabian and Half-Arabian horses, from halter to reining to the best of the junior and youth horse winners. The show office was well-organized and cheerful. Sessions started promptly, and ran from two to three hours on average. The show began with hot weather and temperatures in the 90s. When evening came and the heat broke, out came the lawn chairs, and trainers and exhibitors spilled into the street area in front of the barns to enjoy the breeze that kicked up as the sun went down. In the barn by the in-gate chute, there were impromptu gatherings and in-barn dinners nightly. Canadians Murray and Shirley Popplewell, of RaeDawn Arabians, and the Pomeroys of Pomeroy Arabians International, started it all with a barbeque invitation, and after that festive socials occurred nightly. Everyone took turns providing food, and the entire group enjoyed the meals and the camaraderie. There were a lot of great success stories at the Canadian Nationals this year. Rick Gault showed the Open Western Pleasure Champion, Melody V, and the Western Pleasure Junior Horse Champion, Anthem V. Brett and Marjie Becker and their barn had a terrific show, heading back to California Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

with eight national championships and six reserves in western and hunter pleasure. Tish Kondas, always a great competitor when she rode with Vicki Humphrey, is out on her own now and won up a storm in Canada’s English pleasure, country English pleasure and park divisions. The week’s most exciting developments concerned the Pomeroys and the Popplewells, Canadian breeders from Grande Prairie (northwest of Edmonton) and Saskatoon, respectively. Murray and Shirley Popplewell brought Bey Ambition, winner of the 2008 Breeders World Cup 2-YearOld class in Las Vegas last spring, and took the Canadian National Reserve Championship in the 2-Year-Old Jackpot class on Tuesday night. The Pomeroys own Major Jamaal, the only grey in a splendid class of Arabian senior stallions on Saturday night. What a thrill for them to have their horse named Canadian National Champion Stallion! It is quite possibly the first time that a Canadian National Champion Stallion has been owned by a Canadian. The Pomeroys and their supporters were wild with excitement, filling the stands in the main arena with waving Canadian flags and jubilant cheering for their favorite. The next morning the Pomeroys were out in front of their stalls packing and still visibly glowing from their win. Every few minutes someone would stop and congratulate them. They just beamed with honest appreciation and delight. The Canadian Nationals is never about the quantity; it’s about the quality. The quality of the horses and the competition certainly, but also the quality of the good times spent with friends, family, and horsemen, the extraordinary customer service and caring put forth by the show’s staff, and a genuine, down home welcome from the Canadian people. It all combines to create a magical, friendly, happy atmosphere that Arabian horsemen want and return to enjoy year after year, in spite of the gas crunch, the hundreds of miles of driving, and the expense of showing. Keep setting the example, Canada! We’ll all be back to see you next summer in Regina. 31


2008 Canadian Nationals Tish Kondas, Teaming Some High Steppers After 15 years of riding with Vicki Humphrey, Tish Kondas made the trip to the Canadian Nationals on her own this year, with a new business, Showtime Training Center, and a new training partner, Carla Schiltz. Tish’s new location is in Newnan, Ga., 40 miles south of Atlanta. The facility includes indoor and outdoor riding arenas, 40 acres of paddocks and pastures, and a 64-stall barn with all of the amenities. “I left to go out on my own at the end of last year,” Tish says. “Vicki told me that she knew I was ready to do this 10 years ago, but she was glad that we were able to work together so well for so many years. When we were in the lineup this year during the Canadian National Half-Arabian Open English on Saturday night, she turned to me and said, ‘Wow, you had a great go!’ and it was a very good moment for me. Then we went one-two in the class. I won on Cool Night, and she was reserve on Revelation JF.” Listening to her peers around the in-gate area, the talk was that Tish couldn’t seem to lose at the Canadian Nationals this year. She took eight horses to Canada and came home with six national championships, two reserves and a trunk filled with top ten awards. “I actually rode five,” Tish notes. “Katie Burr rode the sixth one, All Dolled Up EA, to win Half-Arabian Country 18-39.” Two of the rose blankets came with the talented Night of Roses gelding, Cool Night. Tish drove him to a unanimous win in Half-Arabian Pleasure Driving, in addition to HalfArabian English. (In 2005, Cool Night won the Canadian National Championship in Half-Arabian English Open as well.) Another unanimous win for Tish came with Heir Strike in Half-Arabian Park. She teamed the purebred A Noble Pass to roses in the Country English Pleasure Junior Horse competition, and Jama Ghazi to the win in HalfArabian Country English Pleasure. For Heir Strike and A Noble Pass, it was their first victory lap with national championship garlands. “It was an amazing show,” Tish laughs. “I was well prepared, and I had great customers and great horses. Every owner was at the show with me. I love Canada. The staff takes special care of you. It doesn’t have the quantity, but it sure has the quality. When you go down into the chute and everyone is friendly and supportive, you think, ‘now this is a real horse show!’” Tish’s partner, Carla Schiltz, handles the western and hunter pleasure horses at Showtime. Currently the two ladies have 50 horses in training.

Bob Pomeroy And Carrie Langstroth And The 2008 Canadian National Champion Stallion Major Jamaal

Major Jamaal

Bob Pomeroy

Like many “overnight” success stories, the idea for Pomeroy Arabians has its roots in the distant past—in this case, 35 years ago, when Bob Pomeroy was growing up with horses in Canada. “I had grade horses and then fell in love with Arabians,” he says. “Carrie’s been involved with Arabians for a few years now, but she also grew up on a farm with lots of animals.” The Pomeroys started with Arabian horses in a very big way, and made sure they had good quality right from the beginning. So, it came as no surprise to anyone when their first forays into the show ring proved successful. Donatella Versace, the incredibly beautiful Versace daughter they purchased last fall, was the Scottsdale Half-Arabian Champion Stock/Hunter Mare in February, and at the 2008 Canadian Nationals became reserve champion in that class. Their show mare En Vogue FA was 2008 Canadian National Reserve Champion Futurity Filly. “It was only our second time showing at Canadian Nationals,” Bob says. “Our new resident trainer, Joao Rodrigues, was handling for us this year, as was Greg Gallún. We had a wonderful week in Regina. We put together a barbeque the first night at the barn, and after that Carrie and I found ourselves cooking for 50 people every night. What a great bunch of people! We had a ball.” On Saturday night, the trainers and owners around Pomeroy Arabians International and Rae-Dawn Arabians had a big party throughout the barn. The Canadians had amassed dozens of Canadian flags to hand out to the audience in support of their purebred halter stallion, Major Jamaal. The enthusiasm was very high. “It was unbelievable,” Bob laughs. “There was huge support from the crowd. The flags were everywhere. I’ve never seen a crowd support a horse like that. I was surprised.” Major Jamaal took the roses and the title of 2008 Canadian National Champion Stallion, a great win both for the Pomeroys and for Canada. Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


2008 Canadian Nationals Bob and Carrie divide their time between two facilities, their farm in Grande Prairie and a new barn they purchased last winter in Scottsdale, Ariz. The new Scottsdale place will be a showcase to rival the best barns in Paradise Valley. The couple now have 50 Arabian horses, and thoroughly enjoyed the arrival of their first major foal crop this year.

it was the fastest purchase he ever made. Bey Ambition won the 3-Year-Old Colt class at the Las Vegas World Cup, and in Regina was named the 2008 Canadian National Reserve Champion in the 2-Year-Old Colt Jackpot. The obvious favorite at the show in Canada, he was given a standing ovation when he went up to receive his award.

Rae-Dawn Arabians And Murray And Shirley Popplewell

Murray Popplewell

Murray and Shirley Popplewell have been coming to the Canadian National Championships for the last six years. In 2003 an opportunity arose for Rae-Dawn to stable at the top of the in-gate ramp in Regina, and Murray took it. “Shirley and I had made the decision to make Rae-Dawn more visible,” Murray says. “Nine stalls were available in that prime location at Canadian Nationals, and we took them immediately. We’ve been in that spot every year since then.” The Rae-Dawn Arabians farm is located in Saskatoon, just a few hours north of Regina. The Canadian Nationals is a great place for Murray and Shirley to show, to connect with, and to market to Arabian breeders from all over North America and the world. In 2002 the couple had their first Canadian national top ten, a futurity filly named TF Falconsimprint, shown by Mike Neal. Since then, they have had top tens in halter competition every year but one. Last year was a banner year for them at the U.S. Nationals, when their Falcon BHF daughter RD Fabreanna was named National Champion Sweepstakes Filly. It was the beginning of a new era for RaeDawn Arabians. RD Fabreanna’s national championship drew attention to the small but astute breeders from Saskatoon. They expanded their operation and they bought a new colt. “We were at the Las Vegas Show last spring and our trainer, Claudinei Machado, came running up to me and said, ‘You’ve got to see this colt!’” says Murray. “I told him that we didn’t need a colt, but he insisted.” The youngster Murray “had to see” was Bey Ambition, a son of Regal Actor JP and Bey Shahs Lady. He took a good look at the colt’s correct legs, clean throat and long neck, and says Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

Bey Ambition

Rae-Dawn presented four other horses at this year’s Canadian Nationals, and all four claimed top ten awards in their classes. Late in the week of the show, an entire entourage of American breeders made the trip up to Rae-Dawn Arabians to see the horses and enjoy the Popplewells’ hospitality. This winter Murray and Shirley will escape the cold Canadian weather in their new facility in Scottsdale, Ariz., adjoining Pomeroy Arabians. Their former top ten halter youngsters are starting to show off successful careers under saddle, and the farm is expecting 11 foals next spring, all with world class pedigrees.

2008 Canadian Nationals Andy Sellman, A Particularly Good Canadian National Show

“I really enjoyed the Canadian Nationals. The ‘feel’ of the show is so good. The stress and tension are less than the other national shows. You spend time with friends and other trainers. The show committee honestly seems to appreciate your being there, and the local people seem to as well. We had a barbeque each night in our barn at the show. Every evening it was a big get-together, and we had steaks and corn and enjoyed each other’s company. None of us went out to dinner the entire show. We had a very good time.”

Brett and Marjie Becker Left Canada With “Lodes” Of Winners

Andy Sellman

It is not unusual for Andy Sellman to have a phenomenal Canadian National show, but even he has to admit that good luck at the 2008 Canadian Nationals was very much with him. He arrived in Regina with seven horses and went home to Wisconsin with four national championships and three reserves. Certainly his biggest win came with the elegant black mare Scheherazade PE, now the 2008 Canadian National Champion Mare. “Scheherazade PE has been with me since January, and I love her,” says Andy. “She has a great heart; she’s honest and willing. I will be showing her at the U.S. Nationals in the junior halter mare class.” Scheherazade PE (Armani FC) has been a Region 9 and 10 Champion Mare, and was a U.S. National Top Ten Mare in 2005. Another previous national winner at Canada with Andy was Tiamo SF (Georgio AF), the 2008 Canadian National Champion Futurity Gelding. Andy has been showing him for more than a year, and he was Canadian National Champion Jackpot Gelding last year. “He was champion gelding at Scottsdale too,” Andy adds. “He’s very well balanced, correct and beautiful. He has no holes.” Both Renee Kramer, of Red Tail Arabians, and Andy showed the Baske Afire daughter JB Surfs Up in Canada. Renee won HalfArabian Saddle/Pleasure Mares AOTH with JB Surfs Up, and Andy took reserve in the open class. He coached Renee for the competition. A 2-year-old gelded son of U.S. National Champion Pyro Thyme SA, Marithyme LLC won the Gelding Jackpot with Andy at the lead. Completing the list, Andy took reserve national championships with Major Precision (DS Major Afire) in Futurity Colts and Blazin Knight (Baske Afire) in Half-Arabian Saddle/Pleasure Geldings. “I will be taking 16 horses to the U.S. Nationals next month,” Andy says. “I wasn’t home a lot this year. I traveled all over the country looking for horses. I went from coast to coast, and bought nine fillies for my customers. 34

Brett Becker

The degree of difficulty increases greatly when you bring 20 horses to a show. The mix of open, amateur and junior riders with all levels of experience should affect the number of awards you take home—shouldn’t it? Apparently nobody told Brett and Marjie Becker. At the Canadian Nationals with 20 horses and all levels of riders, they saw every horse in every class take a top ten or better. At the end of the show, the Becker barn had accumulated an extraordinary 14 national and national reserve championships in the hunter and western pleasure divisions. Included in these winners are the Canadian National Champion in Hunter Pleasure, Khalid Kid; the National Champion in Half-Arabian Western Pleasure, Geta Lode of This; and the National Champion in Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure Junior Horse, Loded For The Holiday. “The great thing about it was that we had people that had never won at the national level before,” Brett laughs. “The joy and excitement were wonderful. One lady nearly fell off of her horse when they called her number!” Amateur rider, Karen Pitassi, did all of that and more. When her daughter Nicole won the Western Pleasure AAOTR 18-39 with Kharismatic PGA on Wednesday afternoon, Karen went crazy. “It’s true,” she says. “When they called her number, I ran all the way down to the end of the ring where they give the awards before she ever got out of the lineup. My kids have Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


2008 Canadian Nationals been showing for 13 years, and they’ve never won a big prize. You work so hard for so long. I was happier than I could ever possibly describe.” Two days later, Karen was in the Western Pleasure AATR 40 &Over with Jasmine V when she too found that she’d won roses. “I was so thrilled with the top ten, it never even dawned on me that I might have won,” Karen says. “It was my very first top ten. When they called my number for national champion, I thought that I’d heard them wrong. I nearly fell off my horse! “Brett has done a great job with Jasmine,” she adds. “My daughter showed her the last three years in the 14-17. Jasmine always tries so hard and is so honest. I’m just the lucky one who got to ride her.” “We had one success story after another,” Brett says. “We have a young rider, Chelsea Cantero, with just one arm, and she rode JDM Rain Dance in native costume. The horse had never had a costume on before. I believe that horse could do anything. The pair of them took a reserve national championship in costume. Can you believe it? Can you imagine how she felt? “Marjie and I have been showing in Canada since the 70s,” he continues. “We haven’t missed a year. The people are friendly; the competition is good. It’s a nice, quality horse show … never a zoo. People are happy to be there, and they always bring their best horses to show. All nine of my amateur and junior riders had been there before. I imagine all nine will be back. I know Marjie and I will be.”

Springwater Arabians, Bringing Home Roses With Romeo “Romeo Afire has been a great show horse, and good promotion for Springwater,” says trainer John Ryan. “He’s eyecatching, with big, pretty eyes, and a lovely face. We got him from Tim and Marty Shea as a 3-year-old and just rode him for a year, showed him a bit at 4, and took him to the national show at 5.” In his first trip to the U.S. Nationals, in 2006, Romeo Afire was a top ten in Country English Junior Horse. Last year, as a 6-year-old, he hit the national shows hard, and with Carol Skeuse-Hart riding, won both Country English AAOTR 40 & Over at Canada and AAOTR 36-54 at the U.S. Nationals. “I’ve been riding Romeo for two years,” Carol says. “I’ve ridden with John for 15 years, so it’s easy for me to follow in his footsteps when he trains a horse. I never tell Romeo; I just ask him. That suits my nature anyway. Romeo is a great horse. He always makes me look good. Canada was very tough this year. Only one trip into the ring for my class! There were great horses in there, and everyone was riding to win. There are no ‘class fillers’ in Canada. I had a wonderful ride. Romeo gave me everything I asked for and more.” Romeo Afire and Carol won their class for the second year in a row, and then Romeo returned to center ring on Saturday Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

night to take the roses in Country English Pleasure Open with John Ryan in the irons. “People ask to buy Romeo all of the time now,” says Carol with a smile. “I never get tired of them asking.” “Romeo is not difficult to train,” John admits. “It’s very easy for him, and he has a lot of fun in the show ring. He works four or five days a week at home, and gets a five-minute warm-up before his classes. The day before he went national champion with Carol in Canada, he had the day off. It just doesn’t take much to keep him sound and bright. As for me—I’ve become ‘that guy that rides Romeo!’”

Lisa Giovanniello And The Brilliant Hucks Connection V

Lisa Giovanniello

When Hucks Connection V first hit the California show circuit, he was the talk of the countryside. Not since his grandsire, Huckleberry Bey, had a horse’s fluid motion at the trot so captured the Arabian horseman’s imagination. A horse with just exactly the right amount of Huckleberry Bey, *Bask, *Serafix and Crabbet breeding in his pedigree, Hucks Connection V turned out to be precisely what the LaPoint family of Diamond Hill Arabians wanted. “We were looking for another show horse for me at the time,” says Lisa Giovanniello, Jacque and Ann Marie LaPointe’s daughter, “but I knew immediately that this horse was going to be just perfect for my whole family.” Lisa has been riding and enjoying horses her entire life, beginning with lessons at 9 and a first horse at 11. By the time she was 13, she owned the Al-Marah Canadius son Proud Canadian, an R.T. Moore-bred show horse with great attitude. “Proud Canadian was a lot of horse. He taught me to ride and I made him an equitation horse,” says Lisa. “The lessons I learned on him really helped me with Hucks Connection V. ‘Huck’ is all man, all muscle, snorty and hot under saddle, though he’s very controllable. In the stall it’s another story entirely. He’s a sweet, people-oriented horse that loves to be rubbed and tries to get your attention when he hears you coming down the barn aisle.” 35


2008 Canadian Nationals At the 2007 Canadian Nationals, Hucks Connection V and Vicki Humphrey were reserve champion in English Pleasure, while Lisa rode the handsome bay to a top ten in the 18-39 class. At Region 12 last May, the trio swept the field taking championships in English Pleasure open and amateur, and Informal Combination. July brought more championships at Region 15, and then came the 2008 Canadian Nationals and unanimous roses in both the open Canadian National English Pleasure Championship and AAOTR 18-39. “This was my third show season back in the saddle after being away from the ring for 20 years,” laughs Lisa. “What a great joy to ride again—and with a horse like Hucks Connection V, who could ask for more?”

Lori Lawrence And Barbarry Coast, One Last National Championship

Lori Lawrence and Barbarry Coast

“We really enjoy riding with Joel and showing in the east,” says Lori. “Region 12 is a very social group; they take the time to stop and talk with you. Showing horses has been great for Nicole and I. We support each other. We trade horses back and forth, and I get as much joy out of Nicole’s rides and successes as I do for my own.” Canada was special for the family this year because it was Lori’s last chance to show her wonderful Half-Arabian Barbary daughter, Barbarry Coast. Nicole had finished an extraordinary season and won multi-top tens at Youth on the mare, and chose to come to Canada just to watch her mom ride and keep her company. It was a great show for Lori and “Barbarry.” They won both of their cuts, and on Wednesday morning, Lori teamed Barbarry Coast to the roses in Half-Arabian Country English AATR 40 & Over. Friday morning and the Amateur-Owner class was their last time in the ring together, and it was an emotional ride. “I was very aware of the ‘moment’ while warming up Barbarry Coast for the final,” says Lori. “It was raining and dark. When we got down the ramp, at the very last minute, Joel said, ‘Go in first!’ I concentrated on the ride, enjoying every nuance. I was so proud of Barbarry Coast. Fifteen years old, she’d had the whole show season off, and yet she came back better than ever. Our ride was seamless … effortless, and in the lineup I got very emotional. Then they called my name for national champion, and coming through the gate, they played a beautiful Celine Dion song and I couldn’t stop crying. Everybody knew—my husband, Joel and Nicole. I think they were all crying. It made the show something I will never, ever forget.” Barbarry Coast has won numerous national top ten awards over the years and several reserve national championships, but it was her first time as a national champion. Topping that feat, she won two national championships at Canada: the Half-Arabian Country AATR and the AAOTR 40 & Over. In her final class, she and Lori were unanimous on the judges’ cards. Barbarry Coast will now be showing in the 55 & Over division with her new owner, Deborah Pearson.

Dalton And Wyatt Budd, Brothers And Competitors Lori Lawrence

Lori Lawrence and her daughter Nicole are a familiar sight on the Arabian show circuit. Lori has been an avid Arabian enthusiast for 25 years, and the Lawrences have been especially active as a family over the last 10, as Nicole started to ride and then excel in the show ring. Their move to Joel Kiesner’s barn and the purchase of Nabasken Afire and Adams Fire, among other high profile show horses, soon made them very visible and successful Arabian national competitors. Terri and Wyatt Budd 36

Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


2008 Canadian Nationals Like other brothers that ride, Dalton and Wyatt share horses, compare notes, and compete earnestly with one another. An important part of the team at their parents’ Tri-Color Farm, both Dalton and Wyatt train, show, and work behind the scenes. The family always has lots of horses at the Youth and Canadian Nationals. Dalton came home from these two shows with two national championships, two reserves and more than 10 top ten awards, and his younger brother Wyatt accounted for two championships, two reserves and a halfdozen top tens. “I graduated from Youth competition this year,” Dalton says. “It was great to win the Saddle Seat Equitation JTR 14-17 at the Canadian Nationals. I rode Run Forest Run in that, and also took top tens in Country English JOTR and JTR with him. My parents bought him at an Addis Sale in 2006.” In addition to leaving the youth ranks, the older Budd brother recently has taken his horsemanship to another level. “This fall I’m in Indianapolis working with Kelly Wending at Select Show Horses. They have a great kids’ program. It brings a lot of new people into showing horses through lessons and leasing. I’m working with young people and training young horses. Next spring I want to start night school at Ball State University in business management and get a fouryear degree.” Dalton, who has regularly shown in everything from country English and native costume to saddle seat equitation and halter, will be grooming for his parents at the U.S. National Show in Tulsa. Younger brother Wyatt is 12 and in the seventh grade this year. He has been showing at the Canadian Nationals since he was 9, and rode in 11 classes in Regina this year, winning Saddle Seat Equitation JTR 13 & Under and taking a reserve in Western Pleasure JOTR 13 & Under. He confides, “My best ride in Canada was in saddle seat, but I have the most fun when I ride western.” Wyatt enjoys the whole experience north of the border. “It takes us 30 hours to get to Regina with the horses,” he says. “I always try to stay up all night, and I always fall asleep. I like riding in the big ring at the Canadian Nationals. While I’m there I work, clean stalls, and hang out with my friends from John White’s and Rookers’.” His future in the show ring? “I beat my brother in the show ring a couple of times this past year. He’s out of the Youth division and away from home. I’m riding all of his horses.” With a broad grin he adds, “I’ll be beating him more regularly now.”

Justine Ameye: “Canada Is My Favorite Show”

Justine Ameye

“I’ve been showing in Canada for the last three years and it’s really my favorite show,” Justine says. “It’s more laid back than Youth, and the finals are very competitive. My dad goes to all of the shows with me and my mom comes when she can. The horses travel with the Trowbridges, and we fly in from New Jersey.” Justine, who discovered horses one summer on a trail ride in Colorado, enjoys riding with Mary Trowbridge, and says her trainer is both motivating and tough. “I can be lazy, and she pushes me to do my best,” Justine says. “She keeps you focused on your goals and won’t let you stop until you get there. Riding isn’t just about when you’re on the horse. A lot of thought and preparation happens on the ground too.” Justine graduated from Youth competition this past summer, and is now attending Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn., about half an hour from the Trowbridge barn. In addition to riding almost every weekend, she runs, jumps hurdles, and is a two-time All-American in track. At school her field is science, and she wants to major in biology and— she hopes—do research projects. “I want to start showing again in March,” says Justine. “I’ll ride western, hunter and maybe English, in the 18-39. We’re also working on getting a new horse.” Justine Ameye won Half-Arabian Ladies Side Saddle Western at the 2008 Canadian Nationals, and was top ten in HalfArabian Western Pleasure JOTR 17 & Under, Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure JTR 14-17, and Hunt Seat Equitation Not to Jump JTR 14-17. “I love the variety and the quality at Canadian Nationals,” Justine says. “Some people call it an easy national show, but I don’t agree. When horses travel all the way to Canada, they’re the best in the country.”

2008 Most Beautiful Baby Contest

84

DM Philomena

(Versace x Echos Patina, by Echo Magnifficoo) was the winner of the 2007 Arabian Horse Times Most Beautiful Baby Contest. Bred by Trish and Peter Kessler of Don Manuel Farms in St. Augustine, Fla., this beautiful filly was named after Saint Philomena, a martyr for the Roman Catholic Church. “Saint Philomena has always been my favorite saint,” says Trish Kessler. “She was known for her delicate and pretty features, but also her playfulness and liveliness. She was demure and feminine, but also very knowledgeable. When I saw this filly, she just fit that description.” “After I saw the photo (which was taken when DM Philomena was just a week old), I knew we had to enter her in the contest. She was absolutely gorgeous,” continues Kessler. “My husband and I knew the Versace/Echo Magnifficoo cross would be a good one, but she was more than we imagined.” DM Philomena, who exhibits all the characteristics that make the Arabian horse the most beautiful of all the equine breeds, sets the bar high for this year’s contestants. Be sure not to miss the January 2009 issue of the Arabian Horse Times to find out who is going to be crowned this year’s most beautiful baby. Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

English P leasu re Pa r t I I I

I

write Part III having just come back from a few days at the 2008 U.S. Nationals, where, of course, I saw many country and English pleasure classes and a couple of park competitions. It’s hard to believe that I showed in my first English pleasure class more than 50 years ago, and needless to say, the changes are significant. Anyway, in Part II of this series, we got as far as the early 1990s, when Hucklebey Berry was winning the third of his U.S. National Championships in English Pleasure. In reflection, it is my conclusion that he basically was a turning point in the evolution of English pleasure. His explosive passes up the middle enthralled the fans, judges, and professionals alike, and from this point on, the contest seemed to change. Over the course of time, it seems to me that the English class became a class not about pleasure and elegance, but about high frame, extreme motion, and the ability, even if infrequent, to make the big pass that excited the crowd and the judges. More and more trainers and even some amateurs started winning by making the occasional big pass, and being allowed a few mistakes and an otherwise ordinary performance. Pleasurability and lightness in the bridle went by the wayside, as we all attempted to train our horses in terms of collection, impulsion, and elevation to do more than that which was comfortable for them. At that

point, it was not that comfortable for us to ride, either. However, it seemed that if you settled for comfort, you would get beaten. Training and showing changed as a result of what was winning, and who could blame the trainers for wanting to win? That is their job and livelihood, after all. And I do not in any way want to take anything away from Hucklebey Berry. In my opinion, he well deserved his wins, as have most of the winners since that time. Our unwritten standards of excellence have changed, even though our class specifications have not. I’d like to know the difference in the judges’ minds between an English pleasure horse and a park horse. Even now, the same question could be asked of the difference between a good English pleasure horse and a good country pleasure horse. It seems to me, and my opinion was reinforced by my recent visit to the Nationals, that regardless of class (country, English or park) it’s all about the excitement of the “big pass,” despite division and class specifications. Now then, should we blame the judges? Again, in my opinion, the judges must pick the horse closest to the class specifications, which have been and remain very loose in their interpretation. Because all of the English horses are being over-ridden, it is no longer a decision of which horse best Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


Gene LaCroix — Comments On The Evolution Of English Pleasure

meets the class specs; it’s which is the best horse, regardless of the ignorance of the class specs. In most cases, if I were a judge, I’d do no differently than what is usually being pinned. Looking back over the last 50 years, the English horses became more and more beautiful, with increased motion and athleticism, through the end of the 1980s. I’m not sure the quality standards of the class have been raised much, or even any, since then, except in regard to the abilities of the trainers. Trainers have gotten to be great at what they do. I’ve never been shy about giving my opinions, so here goes. I think it is time that the breed is managed in a way that will make it better for the breeders, owners and exhibitors, and therefore, make it more popular. Every division, including English, needs to be tied to a standard of excellence that is mutually agreed to and then completely, without exception, followed. If I could write the new specifications, I’d be sure to include lightness in the bridle, pleasureability, and smoothness for country and English pleasure, and country horses could not go level without penalty. They could not be quick, hurried or pushed in their motion. I’d say exactly the same for the English horses, except that they would have to go level, and again, not be quick or hurried Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

in the delivery of their motion. They could not have so much impulsion as to cause their rear ends to drop in order to create elevation. That kind of movement should be penalized in English pleasure and saved for the park class. The park horse would have to move level or over and be highly elevated, requiring extreme impulsion and the lowering of the haunch. Defining the three divisions with specific limits makes it much easier for judges to select the best horses according to the specifications, riders to ride properly in the division that they are showing, and trainers to train according to the specifications, because that would be what is winning. As long as I am opining, I believe it is time for an evaluation score to be assigned to each performance, comparing that performance to the standard. These scores would become the barometer of how the division is doing. Whether or not each horse is improving or declining in its performance-specific goals, the scores would enable breeders, trainers and exhibitors to try to attain the standard for the division. It also would make things more objective and more rewarding because higher scores really would mean greater achievement. In closing, I wish to thank Lara Ames and the Times for asking me to write about the Arabian English horse. It has brought back some really fond memories. 93

Every single foal we’ve had from him so far has been a winning show horse. I’ve never ridden one that I didn’t like. When Versace passed away, a lot of those breeders made the decision to try Lode Star. I tell them the truth, and the truth is that training his offspring is a real joy.

REGION 3

A Model For The Arabian Horse Community by Gina Czupka

J

ust talking to Region 3 Director Deborah Johnson is enough to make you think, “Maybe I should go check that show out.” Johnson’s enthusiasm for the region, its shows and its members is rivaled only by the excitement felt by attendees of the show. Johnson’s perspective is upbeat and forward-thinking, and it’s clear that while the competition is stiff, you’re guaranteed to have a good time if you go to their championship shows. Like many other regions around the country, Region 3 has two regional championship shows: one standard show and one dedicated sport horse event. “[The sport horse show] was held on the weekend before the Canadian Nationals, and it was very successful,” Johnson says. “That was the second year that we’ve had it on those dates, and people are liking it. It was a wonderful show, and we had great evening activities; the feedback was really positive.” The region is particularly fortunate in that they hold their show in Reno, which is a great attraction to exhibitors for a number of reasons. “The Reno show held pretty consistent with its numbers, and people had a great time,” Johnson says. “We had some folks come down from Region 5 this year; they loved it and are planning on coming back. We also had some Canadian exhibitors again this year, so people are hauling some distance to come to our show. It’s really complimentary, and they’re getting a good time out of it.” She says that the energy that Region 3 creates can be a model for the Arabian horse community at large, “To me, that’s what we need, as an industry, to keep people in this sport.” Johnson adds, “I am surrounded with a great team of volunteers that help and at the regional shows and events throughout the year; those people and their commitment to the Arabian horse and our region keep it fun and thriving.” 8 • Region 3

Johnson also says that the region’s performance futurity has been a boon, too. “It’s doing well; we started it three years ago. We turn the money around and give it right back to the exhibitors. It’s bringing young horses into the program, and it’s bringing some people to our show that probably wouldn’t have come.” One enthusiastic attendee of this year’s Region 3 Championships was Beth Whelihan, who, along with her husband, trainer Mike Whelihan, and their clients, made the drive from Washington to participate. “One of the biggest things that makes it a nice place to show is the size of the arena,” Beth Whelihan says. “It’s a really nice, safe, cool arena, so it’s really good for those horses to get around in—you have lots of space. Some of Mike’s amateurs showed in classes with 25 horses in them, and the ring can accommodate them.” The good facilities go beyond the arena, according to Whelihan, who cites the large, safe stalls that give horses plenty of room to move around and be comfortable. She adds that the show staff and participants were very helpful and made the experience even better. “I thought the people were great,” she says. “The whole environment down there was super friendly. Members of Region 3, and everyone we were around, were all very kind and welcoming.” The Whelihans had a successful show, but Beth says that the achievements were no mean feat. “The competition was great—it was even better than I had anticipated,” she says. “I found the competition to be stiffer than it was up in Region 5, which is our home region.” Both Whelihan and Johnson say that holding the show in Reno makes it even more exhibitor-friendly. “The other part that I liked is that, because I show just a little bit and my kids show a little bit, there’s so much to do in Reno,” Whelihan says. “The clients Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


The 2008 Region 3 Show

really enjoyed it, too—having things to do at night away from the horse show.” She says that all those factors combined made for an outstanding horse show. “It was probably my favorite or one of my favorite regions this year,” she says. “We’re going to go back next year with a lot of horses.” Region 3 has made a concerted effort to keeps its members involved and to also bring new people into the fold to learn about Arabian horses. They’ve had a presence at the Western States Horse Expo, a promotional event held in Sacramento, and they’ve been discussing the feasibility of sending representatives to the Nevada and California state fairs. “Our mini-convention is in January, and that’s when we tend to have our brainstorming

sessions and our workshops,” Johnson says. “We’ve got new people that want to get active in the marketing and public relations side of things. I think we’re really close to having a committee that will put on a marketing event to get the community out to see the championship show that’s held in Reno. Johnson says that her region, like any other, has ups and downs, but that its members keep it strong. “I think we’re facing the same challenges as other clubs and regions. We are trying to deliver a product, a venue, a club, a show, a ride that is affordable and enjoyable for people, so we can keep growing our numbers,” she says. “We’ve got a lot of people committed within our region to try to find out what we can do to keep making this better.”

Stuart Vesty 1


Arabian Horse Photographers In Focus—Stuart Vesty

I

f you ask a dozen Arabian horse trainers, owners or breeders about Stuart Vesty, you will get a dozen answers. Some will tell great “war stories” about photo shoots and horse shows—the one that got loose, the perfect picture and the laughs and the good times that followed. Anyone who has worked with Stuart for more than one or two photo sessions has something to say about his laid-back approach, his good nature, his abundant creative energy, and his almost magical ability to “get the shot.” The more astute among them understand that Stuart Vesty’s secret is a unique combination of artistic and creative ability, and a feeling and eye for horses. Stuart is equal parts horseman and photographer, and the combination has made him one of the best Arabian horse photographers in the world. Stuart grew up on a farm in upstate New York, “just a couple hundred acres with some farm animals” that included work horses and his mother’s American Saddlebreds. The youngest of four boys, he learned to ride on a spotted pony, a Kelloggbred Half-Arabian mare, and a purebred Arabian gelding. For competition purposes there was the county fair circuit and competitive trail riding, among other venues.

By the time he was in high school, his brother Clarke was taking horses in training and Stuart began to practice his photography on them. A photography class in high school was followed by a couple years of study at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The first semesters featured general photography courses, but in the third year it was time to choose a major. “Of course, they didn’t offer a ‘horse photography’ major, so I decided to quit,” Stuart says. “I moved to Minnesota for three years and worked with horses. That brought even more photographic opportunities, and with the help of David and Bob Boggs and my friend Dyana Duerr, we started Midwest Design, Inc. In 1985, I left Minnesota and moved to Florida for a year, and then up to the Catskill Mountains in New York for a year, then back to Florida again. I trained and managed horses and took pictures on the weekends.” During this time Stuart was developing his technique and style. He studied the horse magazines and found inspiration in the photographic work of top Arabian horse photographers Jerry Sparagowski and Scott Trees.

Mrs. Beasley is pure entertainment— she’s either full speed ahead or passed out on the couch. She’s been my “road trip” companion for the past several years.

Arabian Horse Photographers In Focus—Stuart Vesty “Jerry is a master technician with flawless accuracy,” Stuart notes. “He always made horses look their very best. Scott Trees has a very different style, with an artistic layer that’s extremely intriguing. Between the two of them, they inspired me to try to make a career for myself as an Arabian horse photographer. “By 1987, my photography had finally become full-time,” says Stuart. “In 1990 I was living in upstate New York, and one day I just packed everything into a U-Haul trailer and moved to Kentucky. It’s the horse capital of the world, and I ended up staying there for six years. There are horses everywhere in Kentucky. Any given weekend, there’s a horse show here or an open barn there. I learned a lot about photographing horses. You can always get your horse ‘fix’ in Kentucky.” Stuart Vesty has never been shy of a good time. Part of his ineffable charm and appeal is his inclination to party. His handsome good looks, longer hair and trademark black motorcycle jacket gave him a youthful image that was unlike any other horse industry photographer. The younger Arabian trainers immediately embraced his looks, his enthusiasm and his “good time” approach to living. The older and wiser horsemen

liked him too, and were happy to tag along for the ride, especially when they discovered that talent and a great photo product were part of the package. Stuart soon became an integral part of the Arabian horse community. His notoriety as the “guy that can get the shot” among the English trainers eventually grew to include all performance horses, and then the halter horses as well. Despite his history as a ring photographer—and a resume that includes 10 years as the Ohio Buckeye’s official lensman, as well as photographer at Regions 2, 13 and 16, the 2007 World Cup in Las Vegas, and several overseas shows—he still recalls the first show he ever shot. “The photo lab lost all my film,” he says, wincing. “I guess it left me with a dislike for horse show photography that has stayed with me through the years.” Over the years, his accurate, expressive ring photography became only a part of his work, as his reputation for delivering evocative farm shots and portraits became more established. In the early 1990s, Stuart began to add clientele outside of the United States. “Brazil was the first place I went outside of America,” he says. “Walter Mishek and the Arabian

Elandra—Michalów Stud, Poland When it was time for Elandra’s photo shoot, a storm rolled in and it didn’t look like it would ever end. Due to limited time, we had to improvise. The grooms were still brushing her mane and tail when she hit the pose. I blurted out some Polish/English version of “get out of the way” and miraculously they did. This was the very first shot.

Arabian Arabian HorseHorse Photographers Photographers In Focus—Stuart In Focus—Stuart Vesty Vesty Horse Times helped me go. I did Brazil’s national show for several years, and that led to some farm shoots. I remember being on a plane to Miami with a connecting flight to São Paulo. I was going down there to shoot one horse and I was on airplanes longer than the total time I was in Brazil. I thought: ‘This is it; I’ve arrived!’” In the years that followed, assignments took him to Egypt and Israel. In 1997, Stuart was asked to photograph the Arabian horses in Poland for the Polish State Stud catalog that accompanies that country’s sale in August. It was two weeks in May that turned into an annual job. Three years later, he started shooting the Polish National Show and Auction in late summer as well. Stuart Vesty rapidly became one of the most soughtafter Arabian horse photographers in the United States, and now frequently makes side trips overseas and to South America to accommodate Arabian breeders and owners internationally. He must carefully juggle his schedule to allow for a life beyond horse photography. In fact, much of his honeymoon in 1996 was spent as the show photographer at horse shows in Australia. “My good friend Kim Jarvis introduced me to her

sister Sandy at the Ohio Buckeye Show one year,” Stuart recalls. “Kim was playing the matchmaker, and it worked. Sandy and I were married in 1995, but things were so hectic we didn’t actually take our honeymoon until 1996. We went to Australia and spent a good portion of our time working at the Australian East Coast and National Championship Arabian Horse Shows. When I took the job, I didn’t realize that there were three rings to cover simultaneously at the show, so I got my extra camera together and put Sandy in another ring shooting win shots. She had never done anything like that before, but she did a great job. Since then, Australia has become one of our favorite destinations. We’ve been there twice and are really looking forward to going back.” (At the time of this printing, Stuart is on his 3rd visit to Australia.) Stuart’s career as an Arabian horse photographer is practically nonstop these days. When he does get a free weekend, he can be found hanging out with family and friends at home on Aurora Lake, a small private community just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. Though he still wears his trademark black jacket, he sold the motorcycle a while back.

Arabian Horse Photographers In Focus—Stuart Vesty “In 1998 Sandy and I were in Poland, and we saw a wonderful stallion and immediately fell in love with him,” he explains. “His name is *Edukt. So, we sold my bike to help pay for a horse.” He adds with a smile, “But we sold it to my neighbor, so I can still ride it whenever I want.” An avid skier, Stuart likes to head to Colorado’s high country when winter and snow slow the horse photography business a little. “I spent long weekends skiing when I was a kid,” he says. “We would go to Lake Placid, N.Y, or somewhere in New England. My mom doesn’t ski, so she would sit in the lodge and knit mittens and sweaters for us, while my Dad, brothers, and I were out on the hill. Maybe I could have been a competitive skier—I don’t know; I’ve thought about it. If I hadn’t been born into a horse family, I’m sure I would have lived at the base of a mountain. I go every winter to Vail or Aspen or Tahoe. I took up snowboarding a couple of years ago, and my niece, Brooke Marie, was elected to go with me. I ski the big stuff out West, and ‘snowboard ‘the small stuff here at home. “I wish there were a few more of me,” he continues. “There are so many things I’d like to do, and so little free

time in my life right now. It would be great to publish a book or two someday. Still … life is good. It’s wonderful to have a life that includes horses—Sandy and I have bred some National Champions, and I’ve had a great time showing my Half-Arabian gelding, Funky White Boy, but that’s our hobby. Photography has provided me with a way to be a part of the industry, to be close to the great Arabians and to be involved in their lives. Then there are all the wonderful people I’ve met along the way. I miss the ‘hands-on’ feeling I got when I was working in a barn every day, but I knew I would never be the best trainer or get the great horses. My photography allows me to get the great horses. I’m very fortunate.” As an artist, Stuart Vesty loves all things beautiful, such as architecture and history in foreign countries—beauty in all of its many forms, here and abroad. He is noted for seeing the beautiful in the ordinary, a gift that has served him well in his chosen occupation. “There are so many things in the world that I want to capture with my photography,” he says, and winks. “Some days I look at the Victoria’s Secret Catalogue and I say to myself … horses? What was I thinking?”

ARABIAN HORSE IN HISTORY by Andrew K. Steen

Upon his return from the Orient and following the establishment of the First Counsul, Napoleon ordered the re-opening of seven breeding farms and organized the most ambitious and intensive horse breeding and training program in European history. His intent was to ensure that his cavalry would have sufficient mounts for the vainglorious conquests that he envisioned for the future. However, it was never his plan to breed purebred Arabians. He expressed his intentions clearly following his inspection of the Pau Stud; Napoleon called for the greatest number of firstrate crossbred cavalry horses to be produced as quickly as possible. Accordingly, on July 4, 1806, he ordered the establishment of 30 new stallion deposits, six additional breeding farms, and two new equestrian schools. The same year that he was crowned Emperor, there were approximately 1,500 stallions servicing mares at the numerous Imperial breeding farms. The majority of the stallions were purchased from the nation’s livestock breeders or captured from the enemy. Occasionally, warhorses that had been retired from combat were used as sires, including one of Bonaparte’s personal favorites, Fayoum, who in 1811 was sent to service mares at the Haras of Zweibrücken (which he had re-established in 1806). 170

In addition to the domestic-bred stallions, a large number of Arabians and other Oriental stallions had been imported from Egypt, Turkey, Syria, and the Barbary Coast. The information in the chart below is from the Hautes-Pyrenees Archives, which is only a stone’s throw from the present-day French National Stud of Tarbes (founded 1786). The data

172

was extracted from the records of the 17 Arabian and Oriental stallions that Napoleon (or his Minister of Interior) sent to that depot between 1807 and 1814. It established that the importation of Oriental sires was an on-going enterprise and that they were derived from a variety of different sources. (Numerous stallions of French and Spanish origin that serviced the region’s mares are not listed.)

Napoleon’s favorite and most famous mount was Marengo, who according to some sources was a purebred Arabian who stood only 140 centimeters at the withers. Many historians believed that he had been captured at Aboukir and that Napoleon rode the horse at the Battle of Marengo. Thus, he christened him with that name in honor of his A painting by Louis-Francois Lejeune of the Battle of Marengo, June, 1800, an action fought in victory.

on beautiful horses, most of all grey stallions. Undoubtedly, their choice was motivated by more than a desire to satiate their vanity. To be sure, Arabians were more spectacular in processions or on parade, but the main reason that coat color was so appreciated by Field Marshals like Murat and Soult was that their subordinate officers and soldiers could more easily recognize them in all the chaos and mayhem of the battlefield.

Washington’s Magnolia and Robert E. Lee’s famous Traveler were also greys and ridden in battle for the same reason.) Jacques Louis David (1748-1825), who specialized in depicting historic events and creating images of propaganda for Bonaparte, executed perhaps the most famous and easily recognized rendering of Napoleon on horseback. In 1801, he painted him crossing St. Bernard Pass astride Styrie. The familiar Arabian stallion, depicted on most of the world’s Cognac bottles, was done from sketches made in Paris. It is also a matter of historic record that Napoleon did not take the time to pose for that particular portrait, which Spanish King Carlos IV had commissioned as a gift. Instead, the Emperor sent only the uniform that he had worn at the Battle of Marengo to the artist’s studio. Perhaps even more disturbing are the allegations of some historians who staunchly contend that the Corsican rode a mule across the Alps!

Napoleon’s series of decisive victories lasted for a dozen years, between 1796 until 1808; however, his downfall did not begin in Russia as some contend, but rather when he made the fatal mistake of invading Spain. It was there that his army suffered over 300,000 casualties due to fanatical religious factions and peasant partisans whose resistance knew no limits. Bonaparte consolidated his power with a combination of stunning military victories and equally brilliant political treaties and maneuvers, thanks in large part to the genius of Talleyrand, the most astute diplomat in Europe’s history. However, in the end, all of his efforts to establish a New Order were obstructed by the combined forces of his many enemies, the most notable of which was Russia’s Tsar Alexander I. Napoleon’s customary tactic, which had worked effectively up until his invasion of Russia, was to inflict a series of decisive blows on his enemy, causing them to reflect upon their impending defeat. It would be at this time when Napoleon would sue for peace on terms that were always in his favor. Napoleon’s Grand Armée initiated the Russian campaign by crossing the Niemen River on June 24, 1812, with 500,000 infantry soldiers, a supply train of 20,000 horse-drawn vehicles, including 1,000 cannons and cavalry that numbered 43,000 strong.

THE ARABIAN HORSE

IN HISTORY By the end of November, following the retreat from Moscow and the disasters at Berezina, there remained only 9,000 men that were fit for combat. Napoleon’s Imperial Guard had been reduced from 30,000 strong to only 1,500. It was the grey Arabian stallion Vizir that the Emperor chose to accompany him from Paris to Moscow. He rode him throughout the shattering battles of the Russian campaign and the stallion was, reportedly, one of the few horses that survived and returned from the devastating winter snows. However, during most of that journey Napoleon preferred the comfort of a coach and the warmth of a sled that was heated by a charcoal brazier in the winter. Over 200,000 horses had been sacrificed to the extreme demands of the Russian campaign. Thousands were frozen to death by the harsh winter weather, and nearly all of the horses of the supply train were lost. Of the few that remained, various breed associations have all falsely asserted that only their horses survived the ordeal of the Russian offensive. Obviously, the prized horses of highranking elite received better care and feed than those of the rank and file and, consequently, more Arabian and Oriental horses likely survived. Nevertheless, the catastrophic losses suffered in horse and men did not Emperor Napoleon enjoying the comforts of a sleigh on his retreat from Moscow. diminish the megalomaniac delusions of grandeur of the Emperor.

He rode him throughout of the Russian–Prussian Coalition.

THE ARABIAN HORSE

IN HISTORY

Following 16 hours of living-hell, 45,000 men and three-quarters of the animals employed in the battle had perished and lay prostrate in the mud of the gory battleground.

According to H.J. Koch’s “The Rise of Modern Warfare,” Blücher’s counterattack was pivotal and “transferred the situation completely. The defensive battle became an offensive one and the French, fearful of being taken between the British and the Prussians, tried to escape en masse.” Following 16 hours of living-hell, 45,000 men and three-quarters of the animals employed in the battle had perished and lay prostrate in the mud of the gory battleground. It was at Waterloo that the Emperor’s noble steed Marengo was captured by British troops, as well as his carriage and its team of six horses. All this booty was shipped to London, where the horses were sold at public auction. The carriage ended up on display at Madam Tussard’s Waxworks until it was, unfortunately, lost in a fire that devastated most of the famous museum in 1825. As for Marengo, Lt. Colonel J.W. Angerstein bought him and took him to his farm where he was used to service his Thoroughbred mares. However, apparently none of his get proved to be exceptional as racehorses. The 1838 Newmarket Racing Calendar cited one of his sons that participated in the spring racing season, but he was not rated as a favorite. According to some sources, Marengo died at the implausible age of 35 years. The claim could be easily authenticated by an examination of Marengo’s teeth, as his skeleton is on exhibit at the National Army Museum in London. Napoleon was taken prisoner by the British following Waterloo and was sent into permanent exile on the island of St. Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean. He died on May 5, 1821, at the age of 52, from stomach cancer according to some, while others insist that he was poisoned.

ometimes it seems that breeding can be a numbers game—you try multiple combinations until you hit on what works. This is a fine method if the variables of space and resources aren’t of any concern. Another system, one that seems to have worked well for the “small” breeders we talked with, is to carefully study and choose the sire and dam, resulting in the production of just a few high quality individuals each year. From California to Pennsylvania, Arabian breeders around the country shared some tips about achieving success in the breeding shed.

Richard, Gail and Anne Whitaker Avonlea Arabians, Vacaville, Calif. Gail and Richard Whitaker found themselves in the same situation as many parents of horse-crazy daughters. How could they share her hobby? “Through our daughter’s love of Arabian horses, we too fell in love with the breed and wanted to become more involved with Arabians,” says Gail Whitaker. “Since riding didn’t seem like a feasible option, we started breeding.” The couple work together with their daughter, Anne, to make breeding decisions. “We try not to blindly follow the market trends, but to instead consider the strengths and weaknesses of our mares and any stallions that we are considering breeding to, and how they can help each other. As fantastic as the latest and greatest stallion may be, if he doesn’t have what our mares need, then he’s not for us.” The future of Avonlea Arabians is to do more of the same: produce nationalcaliber horses. “I don’t see our breeding program changing much,” Gail says. “We want to stay small and just breed one to two mares a year. Our focus is on producing quality performance horses that we can enjoy having in our backyard until they head off to start their show career—and we’re really excited about the quality and potential of our latest foals.” Based on the successes of the 11 youngsters Avonlea has on the ground, their program is hitting the mark. “Over half of those foals are under the age of 3 and have Intuition A with Anne Whitaker, up. yet to step into the show ring,” says Anne. “Of those who have started their show careers, we’ve bred one multi-national champion, Navigator A; one U.S. National Champion, Psyanne A; and one U.S. National Top Ten, Intuition A, who just won her honors this year. I think the show records of these three highlight the accomplishments of our breeding program.” The family views the futurity programs as a positive for selling young stock. “We participate in the performance futurities and maturities at the regional and national level,” says Anne. “Because the horses are the same age and have had the same amount of training, the futurities and maturities really display a young horse’s natural talent, which is especially important in marketing young horses.” 180

With a breeding bree program centered predominantly on ML Mostly Padron (Padrons Psyche x HS Mostly), owned by the ML Mostly Padron Syndicate and standing at Butler Farms, traine trainer Ted Carson and owners Frances and C.A.

In other words, if it is national-caliber horses you are after, you’d better start with nationa national-caliber horses.” The team prides p itself in assisting clients with their breeding choices, and finds their clients’ succe successes to be a great source of pride. “We assist so many of our clients with their breedin breeding decisions,” he says. “We really enjoy seeing them succeed, whether in breeding or ssales.” Carson says the farm’s future breeding goals are to breed more generations of ML Padron offspring, continuing to provide the industry with competitive Arabian Mostly Padro want to keep progressing, not sit still,” he says. horses. “We w ML Mostly Padron is enrolled in a number of futurity programs, including the Scottsdale Signature Stallion, Region 12 Spotlight, Iowa Gold Star and Minnesota Medallion. “I really ML Mostly Padron and Ted Carson. feel the futurity programs are the future of the industry,” Ted Carson says.

Joe Alberti Chestnuthill Arabians, Gilbert, Pa. Breeder, trainer and soon-to-be-judge Joe Alberti started dreaming of owning his own breeding stallion when he was 14. “There were two farms that really had a big influence on me and made me realize that what I wanted was more than a training facility—Rohara Arabians and LO-Linn Arabians. They both influenced my decision to pursue breeding in addition to training and working with amateurs.” Alberti, whose senior stallion is Shaddofax (Justafire DGL x R-Colette), has only just begun to bring his program to the level he dreamt about all those years ago. He acquired Shaddofax in September 2003 and the stallion has since been named Region 15 Champion twice, and in 2008, Canadian National Reserve Champion. In the Junior Stallion class at the U.S. Shaddofax of Chestnuthill Arabians. Nationals, he was top ten in 2007 and third in 2008. “I believe Shaddofax is laying the groundwork for the breeding program at Chestnuthill Arabians,” Alberti says. “We’ve got about 15 of his foals on the ground, and are just now beginning to figure out what crosses well with him.” When looking for the right mares to breed to Shaddofax, or any stallion for that matter, Alberti cautions against simply selecting the horses being named to championship titles or those that are currently the most popular. “Just because a horse is a national champion doesn’t mean he will complement your mare,” he says. “Likewise, two national champions bred together won’t necessarily achieve the goal of producing a national-level horse.” Instead of focusing solely on what is winning in the show ring, Alberti recommends a course of action involving a lot of homework and taking into consideration both the horse’s phenotype and genotype. “If I’m considering a particular mare, I look at her pedigree, and I also look at what she has already produced. If I can’t see them in person, I’ll study pictures or videos. Not only do I want to know what her pedigree is, but I also want to know what she is passing on. If I can see all these things, I can evaluate her strengths and weaknesses and see if she is going to be an appropriate match for the stallion.” In his own program, Alberti is striving for foals that are both beautiful and athletic. “I would like to have horses that can win not only at halter, but also go on to western or hunter or reining or English performance careers,” he says. He believes Shaddofax will help bridge the gap that sometimes exists between halter and performance horses, and has been encouraged with the stallion’s offspring that are already on the ground. “In 10 years I would like our program to be known as one that produces that kind of beautiful and athletic horse that is able to transition from the halter to the performance ring.” Alberti says helping others make breeding decisions is part of his role at Chestnuthill Arabians too. Besides suggesting they do the homework involving pedigree research and objective evaluation, he also asks a lot of questions about what they are trying to achieve in breeding a particular horse. For example, does the customer want to sell, show or breed the foal? The answers to those questions can also help guide decision-making. Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

Small Breeders Produce Small Numbers, High Quality Large and small breeders alike, including Alberti, are excited about the futurity programs that have cropped up around the country. “I think they are wonderful and are helping bring some money back into our industry,” he says. “I wish we could incorporate some of them into our U.S. Nationals Show. The roses and ribbons and trophies are great, but having money coming back would make them even better.”

Lori and Peter Conway Conway Arabians, Inc., Chatfield, Minn. “I grew up surrounded by Arabian horse breeders, and I have never considered another breed,” Lori Conway says. “Peter became involved with Arabians through his children’s interest in riding. It was a natural progression for us to become this passionate about raising Arabians. We are a team and have a lot of fun choosing the mares, selecting the stallions, and planning for the foal’s future. We are handson in every aspect from the collecting, to inseminating, and foaling. Peter does hold the farm record when he foaled out five mares in one night with the help of his brother while I was at a horse show. They did a great job!” Conway says choosing outstanding mares and stallions is critical to the breeding process. “They must possess and exhibit the characteristics that we want in the program. Their individual excellence must be backed up with a pedigree that consistently shows those same attributes, as only then can one have a reasonable expectation that those traits will be passed down through succeeding generations. Lori and Peter Conway of Conway Arabians. Temperament and attitude are every bit as important as conformation.” The Conways’ breeding program is based on progressing ever closer to the ideal Arabian horse, she says. “Hopefully, in 10 years, we will be closer than we are today, and in 20 years, even closer. Breeding Arabian horses is a continuum that has been going on for hundreds of years and will continue going on, hopefully for hundreds more. We would like to make our mark on the Arabian breed and contribute to the progression towards even better horses.” Part of what sets the Conway program apart from other breeding programs is objectivity. “We strive to be objective about our horses, and are much more critical than the average horse breeder is,” Conway says. “We set high standards for our stallions and mares and are not afraid to change our plans, regardless of the emotional or monetary investment we have in them.” Conway sees the futurity programs as an opportunity to attract new people to the industry. “The futurity programs are the backbone of breed growth right now. We are very involved in the Minnesota Medallion Stallion Program and the Arabian English Performance Association. We enroll all of our horses in both programs and are active personally in those organizations.”

Eleanor Hamilton Eleanor’s Arabian Farm, Minneapolis, Minn. Eleanor Hamilton recently celebrated a birthday—Hesa Zee, the farm’s senior stallion, turned 20 years old. Cake, carrots and adoring crowds were the order of the day, along with the return to the farm of a handful of his very successful offspring. Coming to pay their sire tribute were: Fyre In The Skye, the 2008 Scottsdale Reining Futurity Classic Champion; Sheza Fire-Cracker, 2008 U.S. National Top Ten Reining Futurity Horse; Minding Ps and Qs, 2007 Scottsdale Reining Futurity Classic Champion, U.S. National Reserve Champion Reining Horse, and Canadian National Champion in Reining AAOTR 40 & Over, as well as U.S. and Canadian National Top Ten in 2008; and Zee the Gem, multi-national champion. According to Hamilton it was a great day, with owners and breeders of the mares all present to celebrate along with Hesa Zee. Back in the early 1980s, when Hamilton got her start breeding Arabians, she looked for a western bloodline that wasn’t already represented in the upper Midwest. “At that time, you had to bring the mares to the stallion, so we looked for a western pleasure bloodline that wasn’t already out there,” she says. “Then, there weren’t a lot of *Muscat siblings in the area and nobody else was breeding the Russian bloodlines around us.” Times have changed since then, but Hamilton’s philosophy really Top: Eleanor Hamilton of Eleanor’s Arabian Farm.

Small Breeders Produce Small Numbers, High Quality Now specializing in producing reining and western pleasure horses, Hamilton says there is one intangible that helps her make breeding decisions. “The horse has to ‘talk to me.’ There can be a fabulous horse out there doing a wonderful job, but if I’m not enthused about it, if it doesn’t talk to me, how can I be enthused about it to sell to someone else?” Over the next several years, Hamilton expects to learn even more about which Quarter Horse bloodlines are crossing well with her Arabian mares. “Each year I try breeding to a new Quarter Horse line,” she says. “It takes a couple of years of actually showing the horse to really know.” Hamilton, who still rides and competes on a 19-year-old horse, says the futurities are a good concept and have drawn a number of people to the competition ring. She does caution, however, against pushing horses that are too young. “You have to be careful about pushing an individual horse to do more than what they might be ready for,” she says. A force in the reining industry, Hamilton says what motivates her to keep breeding is a sense of accomplishment. “It is a great thing when a decision I’ve made works. You always hope it will, and when it does, it is a great feeling.”

Janice and Jody Strand Strand’s Arabian Stables, Toddville, Iowa With a 50-year history, the Strand name has long been associated with quality Arabians and Half-Arabians. And although Jody Strand, now at the helm of the wellestablished breeding and training operation, was influenced by his father, Ed Strand, and uncle, Milt Strand, the main influence for his breeding decisions today comes from his training experience. Strand, along with his wife, Janice, breeds for the most beautiful and athletic horses he can produce. “I’m breeding to horses that are proven athletes,” he says. “The mares I’ve chosen have either been winners or I’ve trained them myself. As for the stallions, I look at the ones I’ve been impressed with, follow up with their pedigrees, and look to see what they are producing.” He makes his breeding decisions based partly on those criteria, but also on something that is difficult to measure and only comes from having firsthand knowledge of the horse: its desire to do the job. “You can have all the Jody Strand with Hes Complete, Canadian ‘pretty’ in the world and all the athletic ability in the world, but if the horse doesn’t National Half-Arabian Western Pleasure Horse have the heart or the ‘want-to,’ they probably aren’t going to be successful,” he explains. JOTR 17 & Under Champion. “As a trainer, I have the advantage of working with different horses day-in and day-out. That plays a really important role in the selection process. I believe their attitude and trainability is something that is passed on in certain bloodlines, and those traits have to be a part of the evaluation and decision-making process.” The experience Strand has been able to apply to breeding decisions has served the husband and wife team well, with the majority of Strand-bred horses being regionally and nationally successful. “For the small number of horses we breed, maybe three to five a year, the percentage of those that have been very competitive is high,” he says. Although Strand is noted for his expertise in western pleasure, the horses bred at the farm have been in the winner’s circle in multiple disciplines, including halter and English pleasure. Past success stories include Simple Pleasures, a regional champion halter mare, and SAS Smooth Sailin, U.S. National Top Ten in the Half-Arabian English Futurity. Numerous national winners in western pleasure include: SAS Just One Kiss, U.S. National Top Ten Western Pleasure Futurity Horse and three-time Youth Nationals Top Ten winner; Hes Complete, U.S. National Top Ten Half-Arabian Western Pleasure Futurity Horse, Canadian National Top Ten Half-Arabian Junior Horse, and Canadian National Champion Half-Arabian JOTR 17 & Under Horse; and Borrowed Money SAS, who was the 2007 U.S. National Reserve Champion Half-Arabian Western Pleasure Futurity Horse. There are many others, and as Strand starts focusing more on breeding, the SAS initials will become increasingly common in the winner’s circle. One change Strand has noticed since his father and uncle began the family’s involvement with Arabian horses five decades ago is the move toward very specialized breeding. “We’ve gotten so diversified, we are able to specifically breed high-end halter, English, western or even hunter horses,” he says. “The horses we are breeding now are superior; they just happen to specialize in specific divisions and not excel at every single discipline.” Although Strand has been breeding just a few horses each year, and only for the last decade, the foundation is being laid for a program that will stand the test of time. “I think I’ll just continue to be able to make better and better breeding decisions as I learn more and more about my mares,” he says. “If you have had the chance to work with their dams and grandams and start to know several generations, you can use that information to help match them to stallions. You look at someone like a Sheila Varian, who has had so much success in this industry—she knows multiple generations of the horses she is breeding.” With Jody and Janice, the same is likely to apply, since Jody has the opportunity to work with and get to know a wide variety of bloodlines every day. That experience has clearly given him a leg up in making breeding decisions, as nearly 85 percent of the Strand-bred horses are competing at the highest levels of competition in the industry.

HDF—It’s not a hand out … it’s a leg up. The Horsemen’ H ’s Distress Di FFund d iis a not-for-profi f fit organization i i that h was created d to help h l members of the Arabian community during times of difficulty that arise from unexpected, catastrophic situations. Established in 2005, The Horsemen’s Distress Fund has 501c3 Charitable Organization status from the IRS, making all donations to the fund completely tax deductible. The fund is a completely separate organization from any other entity, with its own by-laws, board of directors, and bank account. It is solely dedicated to helping fellow horsemen during times of need.

The Horsemen’s Distress Fund Helping Horsemen Help Each Other “The Horsemen’s Distress Fund was an absolute Godsend for me. I recently had an unplanned surgery and was facing a minimum of three months without work. Of course, bills still accumulate, and with no income I was facing devastation. “When I had a bill I couldn’t cover, the fund paid each one that I submitted, including truck payments, insurance, doctor, hospital, dental, medical diagnostics and more, and they were quick and a pleasure to work with. Thanks to them, I was able to avoid a financial burden that would have taken years to recover from. “I sincerely appreciate the association and the fund they have created. I strongly encourage everyone to donate to an incredible fund that supports the horsemen in our Arabian community.” —Monty Collison, Horse trainer and owner of Northwest Showcase “To all of those interested in what The Horsemen’s Distress Fund can do, let me reflect on the last year. What a year! As most of you know, my husband Ron Copple was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in December of 2004. A few months into his treatment we received a call that would change our lives for the better. We were delighted to find out that the fund would be started at Scottsdale that year, and that it would be available to help us with some of the staggering medical bills we were incurring. The fund has helped us to stay on our feet throughout Ron’s season-long cancer treatments. It has been an absolute blessing—I don’t know what we would have done without the help of all those that donated to this extraordinary effort. As most of you know, Ron is now cancer free! We’ll be giving to the HDF every year, because we know how important it is to be there for those who will need the fund just like we did!” —Ron and Carrie Copple, Trainers, Westridge Farms

Arabians Ltd.’s 2008 Client Seminar

Arabians Ltd.’s 2008 Client Seminar A Good Idea Has Wrought Magic ... Adds A Fresh, New Dimension To Arabian Ownership by Linda White

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” — author unknown

S

omething very special has been happening in Waco, Texas, and it’s something to which Arabian horse breeders everywhere might take heed. Nearly 30 years ago, Waco businessman Jim Sirbasku had a good idea. It was by no means the first good idea he had ever had, but this one he applied to the new horse operation that had grown from his wife Judy’s passion for the straight Egyptian Arabian. His concept was to provide continuing educational, breeding, marketing, and management support for everyone who bought a horse from them. There would be no “love ’em and leave ’em” here, none of the mindset that has made the term “horse trader” synonymous with shady dealings. Jim and Judy Sirbasku and their newlycreated Arabians Ltd. would always do business for tomorrow, and not just for today. Sirbasku, successful in other business arenas, recognized that one effective way to accomplish the kind of long-term thinking he had in mind would be to initiate some type of weekend seminar format that would bring all their clients together. He would design those seminars to offer education and insight to Arabian breeders at every level of experience and involvement. He also resolved that these events would help customers achieve their own goals in their horse ownership, and increase

their enjoyment of what would be, for many, their first equine experience. The initial Arabians Ltd. client seminar was held in 1986. Since then, what seemed to Jim Sirbasku like an obvious tool for generating repeat and referral business has grown into a phenomenon that brings new people and a new luster to the breeding, buying and selling of Arabian horses. Not incidentally, the Arabians Ltd. “product” has demonstrated its superior quality and value as well. It is worth noting that the high ethical standards the Sirbaskus and their crew abide by are the same as those used by many other Arabian breeders in dealing with their own clientele. The fact is that Arabian buyers are seldom aggrieved with the choices they make, since Arabian horses have a way of selling themselves. The difference is that Sirbasku’s grand plan has blossomed beyond all expectations. Each year, they and their staff bring more newcomers into the fold. Better than that, those recruits usually become Arabian owners, breeders and exhibitors of longstanding. At the client seminar held this fall, there were a variety of participants, from first-timers to many who have been Arabians Ltd. clients for decades. Incidentally, that team mentioned above includes Shawn Crews, manager there since 1978, sales manager John Neyer, client services head Mike Albertini, and publicist Randi Clark, whose photographs and video footage added much to the

seminar’s effectiveness. Completing the picture is a phalanx of female office support staff, and a hand-picked training assistant, grooms, and devoted caregivers whose realm is the stables and acres of outdoor work rings, pastures and paddocks. The atmosphere here confirms the old cliché that there is only one chance to make a first impression. This first impression is surely one that will be remembered pleasantly. Seminar attendees were eager to offer testimonials. Beth Hand, born in Houston, always has loved Arabians, and remembers seeing Tom McNair and stallion Surf performing at the old Pin Oak shows. Horse ownership, however, never was a possibility until 1991, when she leased a mare from Arabians Ltd. and bred her to The Minstril. The Dryad, the result of that cross, has given her owner fillies, two for one. “She has produced nine fillies and four colts,” Hand says. “I have bred her to five or six different Arabians Ltd. stallions, and she always produces better than she is. “This is my home,” she adds, with a sweeping gesture that

seems to include the entire farm. “I know all the staff. I later bought a second mare who came from Arabians Ltd.’s foal buyback program. She is a daughter of The Minstril whom I have bred exclusively to Thee Desperado. Shawn (Crews) has sold her foals to Germany, Israel, Lebanon and elsewhere. I pay the sales commissions gladly, because I know the foals go to good homes, and I have made enough money to stay in business.” Mike Cimino owns and runs Colthill Crescent, an Arabians Ltd. affiliate farm in Folsom, La. “I was raised with Quarter Horses in New Mexico,” offers Cimino, “but in 1994, I saw an ad at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport about an Arabian horse farm conference in Waco. I was intrigued, so I signed up, showed up, and while I was here, I fell in love with Lotus Wanisa, a weanling The Minstril daughter. I bought her a year later, she produced six fillies for me, and through Arabians Ltd., I sold five of them for a bunch of money. I’m living my dream. Jim, Judy and Shawn have helped me move forward, and Shawn has been my mentor. She is one of my best friends, and has earned a special place in my heart.

“What we do here is our business vision. I am so proud of all the people, people that are still around, who have gotten involved with these magnificent Arabian horses through Arabians Ltd.” – Judy Sirbasku

“This connection with Arabians Ltd. has made such a difference in my life!” he continues. “Egyptian Arabians have taught me so much about kindness and gentleness. They have helped me create the man I wanted to be. I can’t imagine my life without these horses, or these people.” A police officer for 28 years, Cimino is now retired, and operates Colthill Crescent with his nephew, 26-year-old Joe Ellis. Forty-two Egyptian Arabians live there, one of whom is Alixirs Sha Shaaa RCA, a 2005 Alixir filly who belongs to Lance and Amanda Picou. “We saw an ad in the newspaper for a November 2007 seminar at Mike’s,” Amanda Picou explains. “We came to it, and we bought a filly two weeks later. We came to our first Arabians Ltd seminar this spring. They fully informed us about everything, including the realities of the Arabian horse industry, and the enduring value of straight Egyptian bloodlines. It was really nice to be able to step right in, learn so much, and feel like a part of the family. “Joe Ellis explains everything he is doing with our filly, and then helps us to do it,” she says. “He spends as much time with us as we need. You can’t put a price on that. I even got to see a foal’s little heartbeat on an ultrasound! In addition to our filly, we plan to keep a gelding or two at Mike’s to ride.” Mike and Linda Hake have been attending Arabians Ltd. seminars for the past 12 years. “When we came to our first seminar, we expected to get a real slick pitch, like a used car salesman’s,” Mike says. “Instead, we got great advice, and the educational information we needed to care for and breed our

horses the right way. We still come after 12 years, and we learn something new every time.” The Hakes now have nine straight Egyptians on their eightacre farm in Pilot Point, Texas. They breed one to two mares a year. “Our association with these people has been a wonderful experience,” Linda says. “All of our successful horse sales have come about with Arabians Ltd.’s marketing support.” “Attending a client seminar at Arabians Ltd. is like spending the weekend with family,” comments Louise Crofts, who with her husband, multi-platinum recording artist Dash Crofts, owns Crofts Haven Arabians. “They have the most beautiful babies available anywhere, and when you take them home, Arabians Ltd. will teach you what to do with them! From conformation and show training to pedigrees and breeding, the staff makes sure you have the information you need. Jim and Judy Sirbasku are the most gracious hosts. They and their whole staff have a wealth of knowledge to share. We always leave knowing more than we did when we arrived. It’s always a wonderful and fulfilling experience.” This year’s fall conference was held September 20-22 at the Arabians Ltd. ranch in Waco. Warm temperatures, clear blue skies, and pastures full of happy, glossy-coated mares and young stock contributed to the weekend’s charm. Eighty attendees from a dozen states gathered on Saturday morning in a large, unpretentious hall above the main barn’s stalls. Friendly staff greeted each new arrival, and adding to

the room’s relaxed hospitality were comfortable furniture groupings and framed color photographs of current and past Arabians Ltd. headliners. Substantial buffet breakfasts and lunches fortified attendees for the full agendas of the morning and afternoon sessions. A dress-up Saturday evening dinner and presentation of annual Junior and Senior Handler of the Year awards, staged at a local country club, provided a festive social highlight. Shawn Crews announced each seminar segment. Headline speakers were trainer and popular Arabian judge Greg Knowles and halter specialist Robin Hopkinson, who both flew in from Scottsdale. After Crews’s introduction, Knowles, who would judge the Argentine national show the following week, offered “A Judge’s View From Center Ring,” after which he educated his audience with live demonstrations of conformation principles and an explanation of officials’ scoring methods. After lunch, John Neyer presented the farm’s stallions. Knowles then narrated a “Conditioning To Win” presentation by longtime Arabian Ltd. assistant Luis Paniagua and his staff. Hopkinson next conducted an entertaining, highly informative halter clinic. Audience participation was encouraged, so four “classes” of brave souls—experienced exhibitors and sheer novices alike—shelved their egos long enough to venture into the outdoor ring and catch-handle some of the farm’s representatives. Hopkinson, well-grounded and articulate, put each class through its paces and “placed” competitors.

Alternately serious and humorous, she then gave her reasons for assigning those placings. After a Sunday brunch that began at 9:30 a.m., seminar guests were further informed and entertained by the 22nd Annual Arabians Ltd. Amateur Horse Show, in which many participated. An informal wine and cheese tasting followed after which visitors lingered, praising the weekend’s content, swapping email addresses and telephone numbers, before reluctantly heading for their cars. The weekend’s most unusual and compelling aspect, however, was one bound to convince even the most cynical veteran. This was the attendees’ behavior during each outdoor presentation. While quiet and interested as they sat indoors, listening to Crews’s introductory remarks, their universal reaction to each clinic was noticeable. Everyone in the audience appeared to be preternaturally attentive, almost spellbound, by what they were seeing and hearing. Each face was rapt in the bright Texas sunlight. Clearly, based on testimonials and empirical observations, Arabians Ltd.’s educational seminars and ongoing customer support are making a difference in many lives. It is no surprise, then, that the repeat and referral business Jim Sirbasku hoped to generate with his good idea has become a reality. Arabians Ltd. clients, old and new, are attaining their goals, and they’re telling their friends and colleagues about the marvelous experiences and exciting opportunities awaiting them with the Arabian breed.

Through The Lens It Was The Most Amazing Thing I’ve Ever Seen! by Johnny Johnston

I

have been around horses for over 50 years. Never mind how much “over.” I have seen everything imaginable concerning a horse’s behavior, human behavior, horse behavior caused by human behavior, and horse-herd behavior. 190

Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


Through The Lens—Johnny Johnston

Well, I thought I had. Then Rose Corey invited me to her ranch, Creekwood Farm, in Puyallup, Wash., for a Chuck Kraft demonstration about horse handling. Chuck is a goodsized fellow; well, he is big is what he is—linebacker large to be accurate. Chuck calls his demonstration “horse handling.” The horse gets handled with great intensity, and that’s putting it mildly. Chuck doesn’t look at the horse, he doesn’t talk to the horse; yet, he keeps the horse’s undivided attention at all times. He uses the most simple tools imaginable—a “carrot-stick” stick; a piece of rope about six-feet long tied to the carrot stick; a Parelli™ halter; a rope lead about 20-feet long attached to the halter; and, most importantly, a ferocious “saber-toothed tiger”—a white plastic bag tied to the line on the “carrot stick.” The “saber-toothed tiger” plastic bag is then unleashed. The horse instantly goes ballistic trying to avoid being savaged by the monstrous beast that is flying through the air in totally frightening and unpredictable ways. The convolutions and contortions the horse goes through would make the average Olympic gymnast proud. The instant the horse puts pressure on the Parelli™ halter he realizes that he has problems larger than a white plastic bag. If you want to see a horse come to a sudden stop, let him feel the release of the pressure on the halter! Chuck then strokes the horse with the carrot stick, line and bag still attached. The horse may shy a little, but a little pressure on that Parelli™ halter and the “whoa” is right there.

Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

Everyone was shocked at how rapidly the horse settled enough to allow Chuck to stroke him with that carrot stick. The Parelli™ halter has no provision for a chain under the bars or under the lip; Chuck merely held the lead rope and allowed the horse to put all the pressure on the nerve points. The horse learned amazingly fast to stay near Chuck if he wanted to be comfortable. Once the horse learned his spatial limits, Chuck began work on his left eye. The audience was informed that horses have two eyes. (By now, everything Chuck said came as a new revelation—have you ever heard of the word “awe?”) He went on to state that what a horse knew in the left eye he didn’t know in the right eye. Chuck then proceeded to use the saber-toothed tiger (white plastic bag) on the left eye to the point that the horse completely accepted it. Chuck by now wasn’t even holding the lead rope. The horse would move around Chuck, but not away from him. Chuck then stroked the horse (never pat the horse— that’s impact, and impact is punishment) on his neck and body, and the horse totally relaxed, which was illustrated by the loosening of his jaw and licking. This was a horse that was rated un-trainable and unmanageable, as stated by a well-known trainer. There was a couple of other interesting things Chuck taught us—if the horse is blinking, he’s thinking; if he’s not, he’s hot (ready for trouble). When he gives the release (the licking relaxing motion), he’s got the new thought imprinted. Everyone began watching for these signals. You would think the horse scored a touchdown when he gave the release; the applause and cheering was loud.

191


Through The Lens—Johnny Johnston

The right eye came next. It was instantly obvious that Chuck had told us straight. That horse nearly came unglued when that “saber-toothed tiger” started whirling around his right eye. We all noticed that the Parelli™ halter was very persuasive in showing the horse his spatial limits, and in no time the horse was in Chuck’s space getting stroked. “Lickin’ and Chewin’” should be Chuck’s theme song … “Lickin’ and chewin’ instead of bad doin’, and no more kickin’, rather be lickin’ … ” Well, at least I can photograph horses. I know, no rap songs; don’t worry, I will certainly stick to my day job. The horse in question was an 8-year-old, unmanageable, intractable, dangerous animal. Less than 2 hours with the charming and well-spoken Chuck (when he could keep his microphone straight), Kraft made a completely different animal out of him. Chuck used the carrot stick and line all around his legs and feet, then picked his feet up several times and that was the session. The horse proceeded to follow him around like a big pet. Chuck emphasized the need to

192

stroke the horse for good behavior; although, he said the best reward is the release of pressure. Chuck told us to stroke as though your heart is in your hand. Every time the horse gave in, Chuck immediately released all pressure and spent a long time stroking him. It was the best example of positive reinforcement I have ever seen. Then came the star of the show—a yearling that was very fast and aggressive with his feet—all four of them. We learned that a horse reacts in 1/200th of a second, while a human reacts in .2 of a second. Thus, the horse wins. The colt’s barn name was “Killer.” “Killer” had a left jab that was lightning fast. His right cross was supersonic. His ability to whirl and kick with his back feet was becoming legendary. They brought “Killer” to “horse handler” Chuck, to show him the error of his ways and to keep his feet to himself. Chuck then introduced “Killer” to the famous white “sabertoothed tiger.” He showed fantastic athletic ability for a long and exciting time. His eye never blinked for the longest

Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


Through The Lens—Johnny Johnston time! Then—it happened. He stopped staring and began blinking and then began chewing and licking; the crowd went totally bananas! We were exhausted! Everyone was amazed! This was something that every horseman and horse lover should have witnessed. If you ever, ever get a chance to see this demonstration, grab it. This will be one of the most memorable days in the history of your horse-loving life. The truly remarkable thing is that the horse wasn’t harmed. The next step was the rope around each of the legs. This taught the horse to think down to his feet. Suddenly, you can now handle feet and legs without risk to life and limb. Horseshoers are some of Chuck’s biggest fans! This didn’t take too long, as the horse had learned that he really wasn’t going to get hurt if he just relaxed and let it happen. And then, he got a whole lot of stroking. Chuck then proceeded to handle the colt’s legs and feet and use a pick and trimmer. This was a colt that would do serious damage to any available part of your anatomy and was a dangerous animal two hours ago! The finale was the most spectacular scene that any of us had ever seen. Ever. Chuck took a multi-colored parachute, waved it all around, above, under, on both sides and then on top of the colt’s head. He then got under the parachute, right by the colt’s head, next to this formerly dangerous, treacherous, frightening animal; he stayed under there for a long time. You really had to be there. It was the most amazing thing I‘ve ever seen.

A LEG UP Make-Do Bandages For Horses by Heather Smith Thomas

S

ometimes a horse is injured and needs immediate care while you’re waiting for the vet to arrive (such as a pressure bandage to control excessive bleeding) or needs protection for a wound to keep out dirt and flies. Often you can improvise a satisfactory bandage from materials you might have on hand. For an instant pressure bandage to halt the flow of blood from a spurting artery, place clean towels or a folded shirt (several layers for thickness) over the wound and wrap it in place with a support bandage or leg wrap. It may take several layers of wrapping. For a leg wound, place several thicknesses of a clean towel directly over the wound and secure with an ace bandage or leg wrap. This will usually halt the bleeding. If a major blood vessel has been cut and results in a serious hemorrhage, a more effective pressure bandage can be created by placing something solid (a clean smooth rock or piece of wood) that is padded with bandaging material against the wound. Secure it with several layers of wrap. Do not make the bandaging too tight or it will cut off circulation. Don’t be alarmed if blood keeps seeping through the bandage for 10 minutes or so. Horse’s blood clots slowly. As long as the main flow is slowed, the horse will be fine until the veterinarian arrives. If the wound is on the body and in a place that is hard to bandage, put a clean towel over it and apply pressure with your hands until the veterinarian arrives. If you need to secure the bandage to the horse’s torso, fold a towel into layers and hold it in place with blanket straps, bungee straps or some other strapping long enough to go around the horse’s body. A strap on each edge of the folded towels will hold them in place.

Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

“Bubble wrap (sheets of air-filled bubbles used for shipping fragile items) can make good temporary padding under a pressure bandage or support bandage, providing safe distribution of pressure against the horse. Bubble wrap can be applied to the lower leg for first-aid care of a bowed tendon, for instance.” If air is going back and forth through an open wound on the abdomen, put a clean plastic garbage bag, folded to proper size, between the wound and the towel to halt airflow in and out. Do not leave the horse unattended after applying this type of bandage or a pressure bandage. Monitor it continually to make sure the bandage stays in place and remains tight enough to halt the bleeding—but not too tight if the injured area starts to swell. Other make-do bandages can be created from a wide variety of things. Disposable diapers and sanitary napkins make good bandaging material to cushion and protect a vital structure, hold a dressing against a wound, or distribute the pressure of an outer elastic bandage more evenly. These items make excellent padding for a small wound and are also ideal for making an emergency pressure bandage to halt bleeding. A disposable diaper will wick moisture away from a wound; the outside plastic helps protect the wound, and the self-sticking tabs can hold it on the horse’s leg until it can be covered with an outer bandage/ wrap. Disposable diapers can also be excellent bandage padding for the bottom of a hoof, as they are durable and waterproof. Adding duct tape around the outside edge at the ground surface and over the bottom of the foot will give even more durability. Old-style cloth diapers make good padding and wraps. Also, before you

throw away old bedding or clothing, utilize the parts that would make padding or bandages; roll or fold them up to store with your first-aid kit. Bubble wrap (sheets of air-filled bubbles used for shipping fragile items) can make good temporary padding under a pressure bandage or support bandage, providing safe distribution of pressure against the horse. Bubble wrap can be applied to the lower leg for first-aid care of a bowed tendon, for instance. If used over an open wound, an absorbent layer such as a sanitary napkin should be applied next to the horse. The bubble wrap can be used temporarily until something better can be applied by your veterinarian. It should be changed within three to six hours, since the plastic holds heat and moisture against the horse’s leg and may cause skin irritation. Nylon stockings, pantyhose or tights can be used for holding a bandage in place, if there’s no elastic bandage available. These can also make a good “mask” for covering facial wounds after they’ve been sutured or stapled by your veterinarian. Just cut holes for the horse’s ears and eyes. To hold a bandage or poultice against the horse’s withers, sew two pairs of pantyhose together at the waistband. This forms a large enough rectangular area to go over your bandage, leaving the stretchy legs available to tie together under the belly at the girth. Since this material stretches, it does not cut off circulation or chaff.

AN AMATEUR POINT OF VIEW The View From The Rail: Canadian Nationals 2008 by Russ Vento

T

hrough the summer this year, we were hearing that nobody was going to Canada and that it was going to be a waste of time (I’m sure that had a lot to do with the economy and gas prices). So, it’s especially fun to be able to report that Canada was great! No one was going? My guess is that for almost everyone who dropped out, someone else that hadn’t come in the past few years—including me—decided that this was the year to go. The total number of horses there was down, yes, but not enough to hurt the show. The English division had a dozen horses in all of its classes, and there were 11 or 12 in amateur park, with six in open park (a dozen entered, and six showed up for the final). In HalfArabian country English pleasure, they still had cuts for AOTR and ATR. There were cuts in western, amateur western and amateur hunter as well. That’s especially impressive when you remember that Youth Nationals ended only a week earlier, and many exhibitors came to Canada almost directly from Albuquerque.

One reason that the Canadian Nationals remains so popular is that it is a very well-run horse show. It has had the same show commission, the same volunteers, the same personnel forever, so you know what to expect. They break their backs to make everybody happy; they have the best “class-caller” ever, so that you know where you are and when you are, and you don’t miss classes. If I had room, I’d include a long list of those who have made this show what it is, as everyone there knows his or her job and does it well. Another great point about Canada is its scheduling. Classes start at 8 or 8:30 a.m. and run until about 11:30, then start back at 1 p.m. and go until 4 or 4:30. They begin again at 7 p.m., and are over by 9 or 9:30. Sometimes reining or trail may last a little longer, but for the most part, everyone has time for dinner and socializing. And an added bonus is that on Friday and Saturday nights, the stands are full. The Regina crowd loves horses, and can be seen going through the barns during the week, just looking at the Arabians. Obviously, there are many good things to say about Canada, and one of my favorites this year was how well the Canadian horsemen did. They won a lot of classes, in both halter and performance. The stands would just rock when a winner’s name was announced from British Columbia, or Saskatchewan, Alberta or Ontario—anywhere in Canada. Many times in the past, horses from the United States went north and more or less took over the show, but this year it was a real national competition, and both countries came away with a lot of ribbons. A great thing to discover is that Regina rates right up there with our most sophisticated cities. You want a good dinner? There are four or five great restaurants on one street. And Canada is open till 1:00, so you can finish the horse show and have a great meal. There are parks, lakes, even a mall. There are rock and roll bars, piano bars, brunches—something for everyone. You just have to go out and look for it.

Of course, no matter how great it all was, I found a few things I’d suggest for improvement. Let me also say that what I write here is not necessarily always my own opinion. I’m also reporting on what I hear as I literally stand on the rail. We all talk, and I try to keep in mind what people are saying. So let me start where we all start, at the show office. Show secretaries everywhere get mad at me because I comment on the paperwork processes at horse shows, and at Canadian Nationals, I was at it again. I really do appreciate the fact that show secretaries and their volunteers work tirelessly (that’s a given), but I have a suggestion. We were required to hand over a blank check to be used in case we neglected to scratch or report a rider/driver/handler change. The penalty for doing that is $100. How about requiring a check only from those who actually have failed in the past? Say, if you didn’t scratch a horse or inform the show office of an exhibitor change last year, you have to turn over a check this year. Also, in the classes which often need intent-toshow forms (like driving and park), have everyone fill them out. I understand the reasoning behind the blank check idea, but I wish the judgment could be on the offenders, not everyone. That said, I want to thank everyone in the show office for doing a great job. That was my only thought for “upgrade” there. So, let’s move on to the halter classes. In this case, I have to put my comments into the context of the Arabian horse industry as a whole, and not just as seen in Canada. We’ve gone through two national shows now, Youth and Canada, using a “scoring system” vs. a “comparison-type” judging. I understand that it was adopted because we all wanted reasons for why horses finished where they did in a class. But … it’s boring. It’s exciting when the horses come in, but after that, only exciting when your favorite horse comes up for judging. There isn’t a last standup, or announcing the scores in the ring, and since no one knows how the horses

Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


AN AMATEUR POINT OF VIEW scored, there is no exciting build-up (as there is at the Olympics, when scores are announced and the crowd keeps track, trying to figure out who is going to win). When the class ends, the announcement tells us who won and with what score (“The champion is number 207, with a score of 308”), but you don’t know that Judge A gave it a 99, Judge B gave it 101, and Judge C gave it 108. So there is not that exciting anticipation we all envisioned; there’s a more fearful anticipation to know what the scores are going to be. My suggestion is that we announce the scores as the class is taking place. I can remember going to the Egyptian Event when I was growing up, and watching the halter classes where they announced the scores while the horses were in the ring. The crowd stayed very involved, excitedly calculating the totals and figuring out the current leader and watching to see who could get a higher score. When one did, everyone went wild with cheering, and I think that was what we all had in mind when we voted in the new halter system. I always give my opinion on judging, so here are my comments on Canada. One great thing about this show is that we always get qualified breeders and horsemen in their divisions to judge. So, I’m not complaining—I just have an observation. In some cases, I think maybe we had specialists in one division judging another division. I know, as a judge myself, that we are all capable of judging the divisions we qualify for; my thoughts are about something a little more subtle, and I’d guess that it happens now and then at many shows. When we are used to judging “point” divisions, such as reining and trail for example, and then switch to a performance class where we’re judging on a “comparison” basis, maybe our habits don’t make the smoothest transitions. In scored classes, when a horse makes a mistake, you give it a penalty. In comparison, you judge that mistake against other mistakes in the class or against the horses you are comparing to the one you have

A few times, I felt that judges more used to the point system might have been a little heavy in punishing minor mistakes in comparison classes. Rather than deciding that yes, there were a few mistakes by Horse A, but overall, its performance exceeded those of Horses B and C, who had fewer visible errors, the judges might pin Horse B or C for the best ribbon. But all in all, both panels did a great job and mostly got the right horses for the titles. In the country English pleasure division, I had some of the same reactions that I did at Youth Nationals. Again, I saw horses that were stressed. When you think the English pleasure and park horses are more pleasurable to watch than country, then there is a problem. So, in my opinion, we again need to give some thought to this division and what we really want to see in it. My only other thought concerns the warm-up ring, and it’s not directed at Canada—I just had this thought while considering the situation there, which was no different from those we see in other shows. It’s time we, as trainers, amateurs, grooms and caretakers, pay more attention to what is happening in our preparation areas and have more respect for others. When we have a 20-horse hunter class getting ready to go in an arena, it’s not the time to bring our western horse in and lunge it, or the time to bring our English horse in and give it a lesson. Or in other words, we all need to be respectful and give other

people the time and space to prepare for the class that they’ve worked so hard for all year. The suggestion I offer to help this situation is simply that different arenas be labeled for different uses. Some can be for lunging, practice and lessons, while others—at least during competition times—are reserved for exhibitor warm-up. One thing we can all agree on is that when we go to a show, we want to give our best performance. So let’s try to enhance the opportunity for everyone. In closing, let me just reiterate how great Canada was. I haven’t talked a lot about competition, but I’ll just say here that it was fierce. If there are 20 horses in a class, 10 could be national champions. Some of our best horses, horsemen and amateurs support it wholeheartedly and take it seriously, and it has a show staff that is second to none. It’s a great horse show.

Cover Story:

MPA

by Larry Jerome

T

here have been many articles written about bou ut the great horses of the Arabian breed. Most will ref reflect flect on their stellar beauty, their athletic prowess, or their incredible ncredible genetic prepotence. All of these things have value alue and are certainly worthy of reiterating. I happen to feel that I own a horse, MPA Giovanni (“Gio”), who is an elite member of this entourage. However, I would like to reflect on a unique quality and presence that Gio has brought to my life. Each of us has that special pet—a dog, cat or horse that has perhaps caused us to become a little irrational by some people’s standards. We also develop this special relationship with our human counterparts. These relationships can affect our emotional stability. I would like to reflect upon the gift of Giovanni in my life. Almost five years ago, I had an opportunity to acquire Gio. To me, he was the epitome of the Arabian horse. In the beginning, I felt it was I who chose Gio. I chose him for his beauty, his pedigree, and my belief that he was the horse that would elevate me to the heights I had always hoped I could achieve amongst my peers and friends. I, too, would be recognized as a leader, making an impact in this industry. I probably should have figured out sooner that it was the other way around, particularly because of the unconventional way in which this horse came to me: a note on a piece of paper, a small photo, and a voice from within that said I needed to pursue this venture. I realize this is not rational behavior, but somehow it felt like something extremely important. That was how the journey began. With the help of Jeff and Jerry Schall, my son-in-law Mike, daughter Indira, my wife, Shelley, and special friend Hermann Blaser, we embarked on this journey. We had the usual beginnings—a few shows, a few wins, mares bred, and the arrival of the first foals. The future was bright, and we prepared for the U.S. National Futurity;

2 MN Breeders

we won. With the exhilaration of that win, the dream only became stronger. stronger The ne nextt foal crop was as eeven en greater than the first. We set sail for even higher goals, but then the ship sank. On April 3, 2008, Gio broke his leg, 10 days before the World Cup Show. My world crumbled. I felt robbed, cheated, and I found it almost impossible to function. I received tremendous support from friends and family members. I tried to reflect on positive thoughts, but if I told you it was easy, that would be far from correct. I attended the show in Las Vegas and then flew to see Gio. It was extremely emotional and difficult to see him in this fallen state. I tried to stay focused on all the good things in my life. There was a special wedding of Mike and Indira. Their marriage was the result of the introduction of Gio. Even the wedding had its moments—the tent blew down the day before in severe storms. Gio continued to heal through the summer, thanks to the incredible medical care he received at Southwest Equine in Arizona. I visited him again and developed a plan that maybe he should stay in the Scottsdale area and continue his rehabilitation process. The best therapy would be swimming. We solicited a team that we felt could carry out this venture and then it fell apart. I found myself continually asking myself, “Why?” I received a call from Greg Gallún inviting me to visit their farm and check out their facility and medical clinics in the area. During my visit to Santa Ynez, I stayed in a quaint old hotel and spent the evening alone. I had an uncle who once told me, “From everything bad comes something good.” As I lay awake all evening, preparing to meet with Greg the next morning, I spent the time reflecting on many things, still asking, “Why?” I reflected on my broken dreams and Gio. Then I started to think about all the good that was coming from the past four months. Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


Cover Story—MPA Giovanni

When I saw Gio in Arizona (before I flew to California), I saw his beauty, but I also saw unhappiness in his eyes. It was a feeling that he gave me that asked to look within his soul. As I lay there in my room, I realized that Gio’s lot in life was perhaps not to bring me fame or glory, but to show me appreciation and gratitude. After all, what is the purpose of the horse? Its first use was that of transportation. This journey I had been taking had introduced me to a whole new group of wonderful people, unselfish individuals, people whose paths I would not have crossed had it not been for these events. They say God works in mysterious ways. Perhaps Gio is the vessel that He used to help me realize a part of what is truly important. It’s the reality check that we have much to be thankful for. In this world, as we view our own small problems, it isn’t hard to find someone with problems more difficult than ours. Interestingly, as I write this, it’s September 11, a day that should certainly remind us of how vulnerable we all are and how precious the gift of our life is. To some of you, these comments may border on unbalanced thinking. However, history has shown that there is more than one horse that has led its master out of battle and many that have found their way home through the fog and life’s storms, bringing their owners to safety. So, now Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

when I look into those big, beautiful eyes, I think they look happier and brighter. Seeing that look, his purpose in life has a greater meaning for me. Gio continues to heal, and a limp mars his beauty. But then, we all have our limps. Two of his doctors have stated that they believe he is alive today because he learned to take care of himself. I am grateful he chose me and takes care of me. MN Breeders 3

2008 Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders Fall Festival—ML Mostly Padron

ML Mostly Padron by Mary Kirkman

For trainer Ted Carson, the Yearling Medallion Filly class at this year’s Minnesota Fall Festival was a triumphant return to his hometown. For the 7-year-old stallion ML Mostly Padron, it may be a signal of what is to come. And for those privileged to witness it, it was a charming illustration of what can happen when friendship, horsemanship and excellent Arabian horses get together. Ten years ago, Ted, a native of Minnesota, and Frances and C.A. Butler of White Oak, N.C., got together to set up Butler Farms Training Center on the couple’s sprawling Arabian horse property. From the beginning, the sense of kinship and commitment drove the joint venture: Carson and his wife, Brandi, co-own the center with the Butlers. And the combinations of clients, family and friends who have supported the operation’s lead stallion, ML Mostly Padron, have lent depth to everyone’s involvement. This year at the competitive Fall Fest, they glimpsed the potential of their young sire and his breeding program. Two individuals represented ML Mostly Padron in the 36 MN Breeders

Minnesota Medallion Futurity for Yearling Fillies, which began on Thursday night, September 25. Ted, who knew the pair were high-caliber, admits to having no aspirations but doing well with them. Another factor in the situation was that the youngsters—Trinity Grace and Aphrodite TCA—were handled by longtime clients who weren’t very old themselves. One was 18-year-old Nicholas Dean, who has been showing with Ted for almost a decade, and the other was his sister Kentley, who a couple of years ago expanded her performance involvement to include halter. Both made the cut and reappeared on Sunday morning for the finals. “I felt like we had a chance in having both fillies in the top five,” Ted relates. “I thought there were five good fillies in the class that day, and I just felt like we were going to go in there and give it the best shot we had. I was thinking, ‘let’s get one of them in champion or reserve.’” As he stood on the rail, his mind was swirling. “First Kentley went reserve, and I was thinking, ‘oh, my God, Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


2008 Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders Fall Festival—ML Mostly Padron

Trinity Grace

she beat her brother—he’s going to be mad.’” He laughs. “Then they called Trinity Grace champion, and it was pretty exciting. What’s rewarding, I guess, is that the whole thing is our program. The fillies were ours, their dams were ours, and we trained the handlers. To bring that home across the country and have a good show like that was really rewarding, that’s for sure.” It was not the first time the two fillies had shown to a one-two decision. In the spring, Ted selected them to exhibit in Region 12’s inaugural Spotlight Futurity, which also required amateur handlers. He knew that Aphrodite TCA was adept in the ring; she already had a Scottsdale top ten on her record. And Trinity Grace, the older of the two, was maturing nicely. Still, it was a surprise to pull off a sweep. In speaking of the fillies, when Ted Carson says “our program,” he refers not only to himself, Brandi and the Butlers, but also to their customers. The dams of both fillies were bred or purchased on his advice to be bred to ML Mostly Padron. Clients Jeff and Sybil Collins and James and Sandra Smith (Brandi Carson’s parents) owned Trinity Grace’s dam, the Versace daughter Suzanna MPA; before they sold her, retaining ownership of her newborn filly, they showed the mare to the U.S. National Reserve Championship in Futurity Fillies and a Top Ten in Canada. Aphrodite TCA’s dam, Fate BFA, was bred at Butler Farms. By Falcon BHF, she is a daughter of MC Psynammon, a U.S. National Top Ten winner in the Breeders Sweepstakes and Futurity Fillies. Now owned by Brandi Carson, Fate BFA was the first Scottsdale Signature Champion Yearling Filly. Ted is equally proud of his handlers. “Nicholas Dean is one of the young halter guys out there who looks like Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

Aphrodite TCA

he has a future, if he chooses to do that. And Kentley just has such an elegant touch about her—she gets along with so many horses because of that.” But most of all, it is ML Mostly Padron who attracts everyone’s attention when evaluating the fillies. “I think what Mostly does is ‘up’ quality,” Ted says. “They all come in with really great trot and strong tail carriage. They are solid-bodied, good-necked and pretty-headed on the walk-around. The standup completes that, they’re really well-balanced. So they do all parts of the show arena, and it works well for them.” At Butler Farms Training Center, the focus is on finding a balance between attracting appropriate horses for training, purchasing high-quality individuals, and breeding their own Arabians. For Ted, breeding Arabians is particularly fascinating. “What I’ve learned is that in the end, you win some and you lose some—and it has to be more than that. That’s why we really started breeding and having our own horses with our clients. To me, it’s much more rewarding when you can have something homegrown, and bring it up and take it on to success.” He is also a fan of the growing role of futurities in the show ring. “Aphrodite has not won a class in her whole life, but she has won $12,000 in futurities,” he observes. “That’s pretty good for never winning a class!” But it is more than just the money, he adds. “It was a fun year for ML Mostly Padron and Butler Farms Training Center in the futurities. Mostly’s fillies swept two of the hot ones in the country. With the Scottsdale, Region 12, Iowa and Fall Fest futurities, we could eventually make a triple crown out of all of this.” Or, for Arabians, he amends, a Quadruple Crown—and his two fillies accounted for two of 2008’s big titles.

Arabian Horse Times Feature Leaders of the Times— November Calendar Feature:

The Legend by Colleen Scott

W

hen the dust settles and Arabian horse enthusiasts start tallying up the wins from the 2008 U.S. National Championship Show, *Khadraj NA (*Ponomarev x Khatreena NA, by *Padron) will be near the top of the champion sire list. That really should come as no surprise. The 17-year-old chestnut stallion has been a mainstay in the winner’s circle, first with his own career, and now as the sire of winning get. In addition to the wins at the most recent gathering of topnotch Arabian horses, *Khadraj NA’s influence over the breed is reverberating around the world. His daughters are claiming the most coveted competition titles, making him a force not just in the current show ring, but also well into the future. Let’s start with the mares. In his early years—to provide an idea of the scope and timelessness of the “*Khadraj ladies”—the stallion sired NNL Emerald Bey, Canadian National Reserve Champion Mare AAOTH; NNL Scandal Nashana, Brazilian Junior Champion Filly; and FAF Victoria, U.K. International Junior Champion Filly. That’s just a sampling. Fast forward to present day, and *Khadraj NA mares could be considered the most elite in the world, in terms of both the titles they are amassing and the top dollars being paid for them. Kharrea PGA, a 3-year-old mare out of Gai Portia, earned the highest score at the 2008 Arabian Breeders World Cup in Las Vegas, with Andy Sellman at the lead. When asked about Kharrea, Sellman answers, “Part of what makes Kharrea so special are those attributes of *Khadraj himself that he passes on in such a generous, amplified version to his offspring—beautiful heads with huge expressive eyes, extravagant necks, coupled with the ability and desire to always give 100%”. She went on to be named 2008 U.S. National Champion Arabian Futurity Filly with David Boggs. A longtime supporter of *Khadraj and his offspring, Boggs says the fillies have a unique look. “I think one of *Khadraj’s greatest attributes is that he passes on laid back shoulders and great length of neck. I’ve seen many of his offspring in South America, and I can’t say enough great things about *Khadraj. He really is the best of the best. I’m crazy about him. Both Kharrea PGA and Kharmel BR are incredible fillies.” 46 MN Breeders

Kharmel BR, owned by Anthony and Denise Marino, was the 2008 Scottsdale Champion in the Arabian Mares 2 & Over class, following up her 2007 U.S. National Reserve Championship in Junior Mares. She is out of SF Georgia. Another representative, Broken Promises PGA (*Khadraj NA x Promise V), was named U.S. National Reserve Champion Junior Mare. Led by Keith Krichke and owned by Whiterock Ranch LLC, she was also the 2007 Canadian National Reserve Champion Futurity Filly. Krichke has shown the mare to all her wins and says she epitomizes the ‘*Khadraj look.’ “All the *Khadraj fillies have the most amazing necks and throats,” he says. “She is a great show horse, great to work with, and she has made my job look easy.” Krichke, who has conditioned and shown a number of *Khadraj offspring, is looking forward to the upcoming Scottsdale Show, where he will be handling another *Khadraj filly, this one out of Gai Fantasha. Khenya PGA, owned by Jerland Farms, has also made her sire proud with a Canadian National Top Ten Futurity Filly title and the Region 10 Championship for Yearling Fillies. She is now producing such promising stock as Cosmopolitan J, recently exported to Belgium. Need we go on? That *Khadraj NA’s mares are among the most sought-after and successful in the country comes as no surprise to the stallion’s owners, Larry and Shelley Jerome and their family. They’ve believed in him for a long time. “I have always been a big fan of *Khadraj and thought he would be an incredible addition to the breeding program at Jerland Farms,” says Larry. He had the opportunity to make just that addition to his program when *Khadraj NA came up for sale in early 2007, after spending many years as the senior stallion of both R-A Aloha Arabians and Petroglyph Arabians. Arabian Horse Times • November 2008


Leaders Of The Times—*Khadraj NA In addition to his ability to sire mares that are highly decorated and desirable as breeding stock, *Khadraj NA also has the ability to beget winners in the performance ring. At the 2008 U.S. Nationals he was the sire of seven national top ten winners, two reserve champions and two national champions (one of which won two titles). But what is most remarkable is the number of disciplines in which his get achieved their successes. Beyond the halter arena achievements of Broken Promises PGA and Kharrea PGA, *Khadraj NA sired winners in western pleasure, hunter pleasure and reining. His get have a universal appeal and an athleticism that makes them ideal for the performance ring. *Khadraj NA get making their way to the winner’s circle at the U.S. Nationals included a trio ridden by Brett Becker. Aboard Khontroversy PGA, Becker was named Reserve Champion in the Western Pleasure Open class. With Aaliyah PGA, he was Top Ten in the Western Pleasure Junior Horse class, and with All Outta Bucks, he was Top Ten in the Half-Arabian Western Pleasure Junior Horses. Becker is a big fan of *Khadraj NA, calling his get very trainable. “They go with the flow,” he says. “They absorb their training. They have a lot of beauty, substance, and are very charismatic. They stand out in the ring. And all the ones we’ve had have been really good movers.” Becker is so impressed with the *Khadraj NA get that he is crossing the stallion to top mares by LBA Lode Star, who stands at Becker Stables. “We have some *Khadraj babies coming and are very excited about that,” he says. Mike Van Handel, Jerland Farms’ resident trainer and manager, has also been a big fan of *Khadraj NA over the years. “He has been one of the most consistent stallions out there,” says Van Handel. And the numbers prove it. In a recently compiled study, *Khadraj NA was named the leading living sire of western pleasure champions. The names above him on the list are all deceased stallions, and include such notables as Fame VF, Khemosabi, GG Samir and Ivanhoe Tsultan. “It is such an honor to be in the same company with those other stallions. We are humbled to have such an amazing stallion be a part of Jerland Farms.” The titles aren’t limited to the western pleasure and halter arenas. His hunter pleasure get include the highly-decorated Khardinal Sin, 2007 and 2008 U.S. National Champion in HalfArabian Hunter Pleasure 40 & Over with owner Karen Lee. He was also the 2008 U.S. National Champion Junior Horse with trainer Wendy Potts. Of her superstar gelding, Lee says, “For me, he is the perfect horse. He loves his job and has been easy to train, so the trainer has loved working with him. But he has an incredible personality. He is like a big pet. He wants to be in my back pocket or smelling my hair. So I have the best of both worlds—I can take him to a show and have a beautiful show horse, but then I have a horse that wants to be on a leash following me everywhere I go. The *Khadraj babies are all beautiful, and I have to believe their trainability, willingness to please and incredible movement is coming from their sire.” With his own stellar resume that includes international and U.S. halter and western pleasure titles, and a growing list of progeny with winning records, *Khadraj NA has earned a place Arabian Horse Times • November 2008

*Khadraj NA (*Ponomarev x Khatreena NA)

not only on the list of leading western sires, but also in the Jerland Farms’ hall of honor. “He has his own paddock where he gets to go out each day,” says Van Handel. “His routine is pretty predictable. You turn him loose and he walks just a few steps, then starts tearing around the paddock with his tail up, putting on a huge show. We’ve actually had people driving by stop their cars to watch. You can always count on him to impress people when they come to see him. But on the flip side, if they want to pet him, he’ll walk right up and be as docile as a kitten.” Van Handel recalls that *Khadraj’s first experience with Wisconsin snow was memorable. “It was really funny to watch him snorting and pawing at it. I don’t think he had ever seen snow before.” After his time outside in the sun, *Khadraj NA is led back to what Van Handel describes as his “stall of honor.” The family is committed not just to continuing his breeding career, but also to letting him be the stallion he was destined to be. “*Khadraj really deserves to enjoy himself, be who he is and spend his days here on the farm,” says Van Handel. “Larry waited a long time to have the opportunity to purchase him, and it feels like he really belongs here.” By the time the Jerome family acquired *Khadraj in 2007, all but one of their mares had been bred for the season, but they have bred him to virtually all of the mares in their broodmare band for 2009 babies. “We have our best mares bred to him as well as some outside mares,” says Van Handel. “We are very excited and can’t wait to start seeing those babies in the spring.” In the meantime, *Khadraj NA is enjoying the waning Wisconsin Indian summer days and preparing for some more of the white stuff. If you’re ever in the neighborhood of Jerland Farms, you’re sure to spot *Khadraj joyfully prancing around the front paddock, allowing everyone the chance to stop and admire him. MN Breeders 47
