It’s that time of year again—Youth Nationals is right around the corner. Have you noticed that while we hear spirited debates on various points of our other national shows, you almost never hear anything but the occasional constructive criticism about Youth? I wonder if that’s because it is such a positive event for the kids. If you want a blast of youthful energy, just get yourself to Albuquerque in late July. Talk about enthusiasm! I think we can all learn a lesson from our young riders and their national show. Showing Arabians is fun. Sure, at the highest level, it can be stressful, but just consider Youth Nationals as a combination of great sport, reunions with friends, hilarious hijinks, and nonstop enjoyment. It’s time to put that fun factor back into all our shows. In the meantime, to get with the spirit, I decided to take the questionnaire that AHT sent to a selection of our young riders. How would you answer the questions?

Office Manager Circulation Robin Matejcek

1. I could not get through the day without my horse at Youth Nationals.

Accounts Receivable Circulation Editorial Assistant Karen Fell

2. The one thing above all else that people should know about the Arabian horse is … that they are extremely proud and intelligent.

3. The most embarrassing moment I experienced when riding/showing my horse was … being thrown by my horse when I won my first national championship—no victory pass! 4. My favorite thing to do in Albuquerque during Youth Nationals is … to watch the amazing quality of the horses and riders. 5. My favorite app/video game is … I really don’t have one. 6.

Cover Story:

by Mary Kirkman

“Chris and Shan called and told me, ‘you won’t believe this baby — he’s beautiful! I said, ‘I want to name him Grand Caymon.’” ~ Jeannie Wilson

CSP Grand Caymon, the rising young star at Chrishan Park in Springfield, Mo., has a rock-solid pedigree and more than his share of ability in performance. But until he was born, there was nothing certain about him; in fact, veterinarians once despaired of his arrival on this planet at all. Early in her pregnancy, his dam, JJ Sioux Hope, suffered a violent allergic reaction and nearly died. “The vet at the University of Missouri called and said, ‘I don’t think I’ll be able to save the foal, but I believe I can save your mare,’” breeder Jeannie Wilson recalls. It was not a day that she cares to repeat. “Miss Chocolate,” as she calls JJ Sioux Hope in honor of the mare’s color, is more than just a broodmare; she is a member of the family, selected for her by her son, Chris. Moreover, the foal was by the Zodiac Matador son, Mamage, whose name would be forever linked to her other son, Shan, who guided the stallion to all of his national championships in English pleasure and park. But the news got better. The university vets were able to save both the mare and foal. “It was a miracle,” Jeannie smiles. “Of course, the whole time that she was pregnant, I was worried to pieces that she’d be okay.”

Pictured just days old. 24 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

Wilson was in the Cayman Islands when the foal was born on April 27, 2007. “Chris and Shan called and told me, ‘You won’t believe this baby—he’s beautiful,’” she recalls. “I said, ‘I want to name him Grand Caymon.’” (The different spelling is tribute to the distinctive Caribbean pronunciation of Cayman.)


“His neck was so vertical and hooked over at the top that it was just really extreme.Everybody commented on it and thought it was pretty ‘wow.’”

~ Shan Wilson

Both Chris and Shan are pedigree enthusiasts. “There are patterns to what stallions contribute, and that becomes especially apparent in the show ring,” Chris offers. “You’ll say, ‘He sure looks like a Mamage’ or ‘He sure looks like a Matoi.’ But the mare is the difference. Between all the babies that a stallion has, the mare is the one who makes a foal a little bit longer-necked, taller or trottier.” By MC Sir Hope, JJ Sioux Hope is a granddaughter of the 1970s and 1980s park stallion High Hopes, a four-time U.S. National Champion whose titles included park, formal driving, formal and informal combination. Her dam is M G Jabaska, a mare whose pedigree is remarkably similar to that of Toi Jabaska, whom Chris trained to the first four of her nine national championships. Both are by U.S. National Reserve Champion Stallion GG Jabask, and both have dams from the Karadjordje line. M G Jabaska includes an additional infusion of *Bask.

Pictured as a yearling. As the colt grew up, Shan Wilson occasionally took Chrishan Park visitors over to see the babies at his parents’ farm, and was encouraged by the chorus of approval Miss Chocolate’s foal inspired. “His neck was so vertical and hooked over at the top that it was just really extreme,” he reports. “Everybody commented on it and thought it was pretty ‘wow.’” From the beginning, there has been reason to believe that CSP Grand Caymon has a bright future. His pedigree is that of a breeding horse, and it appears that hopes of a serious performance career are justified as well.

On the paternal side, Grand Caymon descends from one of the most celebrated English lines in history, that of *Bask through his son, Zodiac Matador. ~ Continued

The story begins with JJ Sioux Hope. When horse transporter Charlie Downs offered her for sale in 2006, Chris Wilson was already aware of her potential; a year earlier, he had found it easy to market one of her sons, DS Mick Jagger, by the Zodiac Matador stallion Matoi. “She’s a big mare, 15.1, while both Mamage and Matoi are smaller, as a lot of good English horses are,” says Chris. “She reproduces the sire in a big way. Grand Caymon is a bigger, stretchier version of Mamage; Mick Jagger looks like Matoi, but is taller.” In fact, DS Mick Jagger is now on the Chrishan Park stallion roster. His performance in that arena leads Chris to believe that CSP Grand Caymon will be an exceptional sire as well. “Mick Jagger has had only 13 foals, nine of an age to be trained,” he says, “and yet he has two horses that are Canadian national champions.”

“I feel like most of the time, really special stallions have a brilliance about them that makes them stand out...” ~ Shan Wilson

“Based on pedigree through the dam line, I think Grand Caymon will breed size,” Chris says, “and there’s no question the motion should come through as well.” When Shan sees CSP Grand Caymon, he sees not only the mare, but also the strength of his old friend Mamage as a sire. “Mamage has a big, soft eye and a mellow way about him,” he says. “His biggest asset in my mind was his elasticity. You could ask him for more collection and impulsion, and the more you would ask, the more he would give. So far this horse seems to be that way too—I’m amazed at how easily he is getting into the frame, and he just keeps getting better and better.” “Mamage also brings to the table an outstanding hock, a great hind leg and a trainable attitude. Grand Caymon has more size, scope and stretch, without losing any of the athleticism.” CSP Grand Caymon has yet to hit competition, but through the months, he has given every indication that he will develop into a good English horse. It was not until early June, however, at the photo shoot for the AHT cover, that the brothers got a true glimpse of his ability. Wearing just a light plate with a pad, the colt blew them away. “We were thinking, with Caymon being back in performance training for only two months after a winter break, and only wearing a plate, we’re not trying to get a dynamic trot shot,” Shan recalls. “And the week before Stuart Vesty came, we were at a horse show. But there are half a dozen under saddle shots that I’m so amazed by! We were all impressed by the level of his motion, and how easy it is for him to get a high headset, with his nose in, and put his hind end down.” “I remember an ad we did promoting Mamage, using Grand Caymon when he was baby,” he adds. “It said, ‘This colt’s a mountain climber,’ because he was built so uphill. That’s Grand ~ Continued 26 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes


Caymon; he has a really nice slope to his hip and he’s very long-legged in front. It’s easy for him to get in that position.” CSP Grand Caymon’s probable show ring debut now is the junior English class at Scottsdale in 2012, the same year that his first two or three foals will arrive. “We’re trying to do right by this horse,” Chris says. That includes keeping a young stallion’s mind on his business through the critical stages of training before introducing stud duties to the routine. His addition to the stallion roster will open a new phase of the Wilson breeding program. They particularly look forward to crossing CSP Grand Caymon on fillies by the exciting English stallion Vegaz, who stands at Chrishan Park. “With his size, his extreme length of neck, and his pedigree, we feel that will be a good match,” Shan says. “In fact, we think of it as ‘the Next Step.’” CSP Grand Caymon’s short-term importance in the Arabian breed will rest on how dazzling he can become in the English show ring. Longer term, it will be reflected in his ability as a sire to transmit the depth of his pedigree and the unique physical attributes it conveys. To the Wilsons, he already is a VIP. Jeannie recalls the stallion’s early days at their farm. “He just had so much spirit,” she says. “He was always playing—he was so exuberant, and he was very intelligent. I saw him everyday; I was the one who always picked up his feet and played with his ears to get him used to everything. I do that for others, but I found myself spending more time with him because I always felt he was so special.” “I’ve left his future up to the boys,” she continues. “It’s my desire that the boys continue to train, show, breed and manage Caymon for a long time, whether I own him or not. He is what we are breeding for.” “Growing up as a youngster, he had an extreme brilliance about him,” Shan reflects. “I feel like most of the time, really special stallions have a brilliance about them that makes them stand out—they draw your eye, and they have a real presence. He has so much of that.”

DOLOROSA

by Beth Ellen Hunziker

s the sun was rising in Wilmington, North Carolina on Friday, February 28, 2003, it was already mid-day in Cairo, Egypt; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Warsaw, Poland, and London, England. World events were unfolding as the day was just beginning at Dolorosa Arabians, the farm owned by Dr. DeCarol Williamson and his wife Jan, breeders of national and international champions for over 30 years. The horses of Dolorosa began to stir as feeding time approached, but the beautiful chestnut mare DA Love had other matters on her mind. Her labor pains had begun, signaling that her time was near. While most of the world was looking forward to the weekend and a change of pace, DA Love was about to give birth to a foal that would change the history of the Arabian horse breed.

DA Love (Padrons Psyche x Magnifficaa FA by Echo Magnifficoo), was in foal to Versace, a stallion who has become an icon in the Arabian horse industry and universally admired for producing foals of extreme beauty and quality. DA Love gave birth to a beautiful, dark, rich bay colt. He was everything DeCarol Williamson had hoped for – and more. Even as a foal, DA Valentino’s quality and exceptional conformation were immediately apparent. DeCarol watched the colt at his dam’s side and as each month passed he just got better and better. 38 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

In May of 2004, Rob Bick showed DA Valentino for Dolorosa Arabians at Region 12 where he was Champion Sweepstakes Yearling Colt. Word spread quickly about the new superstar colt and soon DeCarol Williamson received an offer for Valentino from David Boggs for one of his clients. After some negotiating, DeCarol agreed to sell the colt, but he retained rights for 12 breedings per year because he was certain that Valentino would prove to be an exceptional sire, as well as a show ring sensation - both predictions came true.

In August of 2004, David Boggs negotiated the purchase of DA Valentino for his long time friends and clients, Dan and Maureen Grossman. They successfully campaigned Valentino to a record breaking number of wins. In fact, DA Valentino is the only stallion in the breed to earn six national championship titles in halter including: 2004 US National Champion Yearling Colt, 2006 Canadian National Champion Two-Year and Older Stallion, 2006 US National Champion Futurity Colt, 2006 US National Champion Junior Stallion, 2007 US National


Champion Junior Stallion, 2008 US National Champion Junior Stallion. Throughout his show career DA Valentino was shown 21 times and earned 21 championship titles – he remained undefeated and was the reigning king of the ring. DA Valentino was poised and ready to return to the show ring in 2011. It had been almost two years since his last show ring competition and he was to make his debut at the Arabian Breeders’ World Cup Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada. Everyone was very excited to see this great stallion. Then tragedy struck. On Friday, April 8, 2011, DA Valentino was rushed to the vet and into emergency surgery. Every effort was made, but the Arabian horse community lost one of its bright-

est stars and one of the most successful stallions in the history of the breed. DA Valentino was only eight years old, and he was already on the AHA Arabian Horse Data Source list of leading sires in the world. Just one week before he was to make his Las Vegas debut, DA Valentino was taken from us. The Breeders’ World Cup Championships is truly a special event. It is a show created by breeders for breeders and they come from around the world to see some of the finest Arabian horses imaginable. DA Valentino’s absence at the 2011 Breeders World Cup was conspicuous, and he was greatly missed. by all. A beatuiful, but bittersweet video tribute was created and presented at the show in his honor. When the lights went

down and the film began, a hush fell over the crowd as they were swept away with the majesty of this great show champion and sire of national champions. There was one person among the crowd of hundreds watching the film in the darkened area. His perspective of the tribute was unlike any other because he knew DA Valentino more intimately than any one, he was more proud of the stallion than anyone else ever could be; he was Valentino’s breeder, DeCarol Williamson. Looking out over the crowd as they watched the beautifully crafted film, DeCarol was overwhelmed by the love and admiration the people had for the internationally acclaimed stallion that began his extraordinary life at Dolorosa Arabians.

As DeCarol looked over the sea of people whose attention was riveted on the beautiful images of the glorious stallion, he spotted Ted Carson, the talented trainer who had once worked for him at Dolorosa Arabians. DeCarol saw Lenita Perroy, owner of Ali Jamaal; he saw Sheila Varian, who owned Bay El Bey, the sire of the great Bey Shah. DeCarol saw Dr. Marek Trela, Director of Janow Podlaski in Poland, the homeland of many of the great Polish horses in DA Valentino’s pedigree; and he saw Sigi Siller, the breeder of El Shaklan, one 40 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

of Valentino’s great grandsires as well. Looking further, DeCarol also saw David Boggs, who had showed Valentino to many of his wins, and he saw Dan and Maureen Grossman, Valentino’s owners since August of 2004. All these people had a connection to DA Valentino. Thinking of DA Valentino and his beginnings, DeCarol recognized pivotal events in the past that had lead him to the present and are now taking him and Dolorosa Arabians into an exciting new future. Over the

past 30 years, Dolorosa Arabians has been successful in breeding national champions in halter and performance. With his ever-expanding business and professional life, DeCarol recently decided to focus the Dolorosa breeding program exclusively on halter and breeding horses. This is not a huge shift because DeCarol established his group of foundation mares decades ago, and he is now into breeding his third and fourth generation of halter horses including DA Valentino. It is amazing how circumstances bring people together – some call


it serendipity, others call it divine attraction. In the early 1990’s, DeCarol Williamson was in Arizona for the Scottsdale Show. His long time associate Doug Leadley, told him about an exciting young stallion he had seen. They made an appointment to see the horse; his name was Padrons Psyche. At the showing, someone handed DeCarol Psyche’s lead and the power he felt coursing through it was electrifying. DeCarol was impressed with Psyche’s stature, type, and powerful movement.

At that moment, he knew he wanted to incorporate Psyche into the Dolorosa program and he purchase several breedings. DeCarol used those breedings and he now has five wonderful Psyche daughters that are members of Dolorosa Arabians’ foundation mares. Several years later, Ted Carson, who was working for Dolorosa at the time, told DeCarol about a two-year-old filly he thought would make a great addition to the farm’s herd; her name was Magnifficaa FA (Echo Magniffi-

coo x Jamaara FA by Ali Jamaal). After looking at her pedigree, DeCarol’s interest was piqued. He respected Echo Magnifficoo’s ability to sire offspring with scope and great neck sets, and he certainly admired Ali Jamaal and his proven performance as a sire of international champion offspring, but it was Magnifficaa’s maternal grandmother, NV Tiara Bey, by Bey Shah, that really sold DeCarol on the young filly. He purchased her and the following year she was bred to Padrons Psyche. In 1999, she had a beautiful chestnut filly, DA Love. J u ne 2011 | 41

When DeCarol Williamson attended the Scottsdale show in 2002, he saw Jeff Schall showing a colt that mesmerized him. Later on, he went over and visited with Jeff who took the colt out for DeCarol. Odyssey SC (Versace x Latoura Echo by Echo Magnifficoo), had a look and style that DeCarol really liked. However, he was not for sale. DeCarol decided if he couldn’t buy Odyssey SC, then he would replicate the breeding, crossing Versace with one of his own similarly bred mares. DeCarol selected DA Love because she carried lines to both Padrons Psyche and Echo Magnifficoo. DeCarol believed if all the stars aligned just right, the 42 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

foal might inherit the best qualities of all of these great horses. DeCarol visualized the possibility of a foal that would result from the pairing of Versace and DA Love. It would be a beautiful mahogany bay with an exquisite face; a long well set neck, a beautifully smooth body, great tail set and carriage, excellent movement, and a gentle temperament. On February 23, 2003, DeCarol’s vision came to life in the form of a beautiful colt that was destined for greatness – DA Valentino. Versace has become an important source for overall classic type, quality conformation, and wonderful temperaments for the Do-

lorosa breeding program, and his sons and daughters are proving to among their best producers. DeCarol Williamson is understandably proud to be the breeder of DA Valentino, but he refuses to take all the credit. He earnestly acknowledges every person whose efforts culminated in an individual of near perfection. Rightfully so – no breeder can claim exclusive credit for producing a horse. Each animal represents the efforts of hundreds, if not thousands of people. In this way, the Arabian horse brings us together and connects us though a love- a passion - that few can define, but all of us share.


DA Valentino brought breeders, owners, trainers, dreamers and many others together. Although he is no longer with us, we are fortunate to have his sons and daughters to carry on his lines. DeCarol remains committed to DA Valentino and he has many wonderful foals sired by Valentino at his farm. Dolorosa Arabians was blessed to have bred a stallion as wonderful as DA Valentino, was it possible for such a gift to be bestowed upon a breeder more than once? DeCarol Williamson was so impressed with DA Valentino that he bred DA Love back to Versace. In fact, Dolorosa Ara-

bians has three full siblings to DA Valentino. DA Legacy is a handsome four-year-old bay stallion that produced his first foals in 2011. They are fantastic and demonstrate extreme type, excellent conformation, and amazing movement and tail carriage. DeCarol will continue to test DA Legacy’s ability as a sire. DA Valentina, is a four-year-old full sister that produced her first foal in 2011, a very high quality filly by Marwan Al Magnifficoo. Valentina is bred to RHR Marcedes for a 2012 foal. Completing the group of full siblings is the youngest brother, and perhaps the star that will eclipse the others; his name is DA Prodigy.

Dolorosa Arabians and DeCarol Williamson have been acknowledges as leading producers of national champion Arabian horses. In fact, the Arabian Professional Horsemen Association named them 2004 Breeder of the Year. Dolorosa earned that title by breeding horses such as DA Valentino and now his full brother, DA Prodigy. The qualities that made DA Valentino a six time national champion and an undefeated show champion are mirrored in DA Prodigy, yet he has certain qualities that even exceed those of his world famous brother. DeCarol placed DA Prodigy into the capable hands of Ted Carson, the very person who brought DA Prodigy’s grand dam to DeCarol’s attention, and ultimately into the Dolorosa breeding program. DeCarol will never forgot that connection and he gives Ted the credit for his contribution to DA Valentino and now DA Prodigy. With Valentino’s overwhelming popularity and success, DeCarol thought it would be counter productive to campaign his younger brother. However, with each ending there is also a new beginning and thus with the passing of DA Valentino, the brother who stood in obscurity will soon take center stage in Tulsa, Oklahoma. DeCarol Williamson has two goals in taking DA Prodigy to the 44 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

U.S. Nationals; first and most important, to share him as an inspiration with breeders around the world, and second to possibly win the title of U.S. National Champion Futurity Colt. DA Prodigy’s conformational excellence is evident to all who see him. However, his genetic power will be proven next year, in 2012, when his first foals are scheduled to arrive. DeCarol selected a small group of Dolorosa mares, including some bred by the farm and representing a variety of bloodlines, for Prodigy. DeCarol is excited to see what he can achieve through line breeding his bloodstock. For now, he must patiently wait for the results. Patience and perseverance; these are two more common traits among successful breeders. DeCarol’s experience with Arabian horses over the past 30 years and his previous achievements in breeding halter and performance national champions at Dolorosa Arabians are the foundation for his patience. The inspiration for his perseverance is his deep love for the Arabian horse. DeCarol Williamson’s goals for Dolorosa Arabians are simple – to share the Arabian horse with others and bring breeders from around the world together to enjoy and preserve these magnificent creatures for future generations.

2011 Region 7 Championships Celebrating exCellenCe by Linda White

The regional horse show concept began as a vehicle for qualifying purebred and Half-Arabian show horses for each year’s national show. Put into place, however, North America’s 18 regional shows exploded instantaneously into celebrations so loud and enthusiastic that they made ice cubes rattle in glasses thousands of miles distant. In Region 7, the fuse was already lit. Arabian horses were prospering in the desert Southwest long before Arabian fanciers there began to organize themselves. While it is true that the three Region 7 states’ human population is not as dense as some other areas can claim, Region 7’s per capita passion ranks quite high. The 2011 Region 7 Pre-Show and Championship Show were held April 26th through May 1st at WestWorld Equestrian Center, site of the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show since the mid-1980s. “The show was moved around from state to state for years, until the Region 7 Board decided to keep it in Scottsdale,” explains Melanni Hershberger, the show’s long-time manager. The Ohio native has been lending her skill and expertise to horse shows on both sides of the Mississippi since the 1960s. “The Region 7 Championships, held in April, is the season’s first Regional, taking place between winter’s pleasant temperatures and our area’s stifling late spring and summer heat. We had a great show this year! We gave out 581 back numbers, so our horse and entries totals were down only slightly from last year’s.” Current Region 7 Director Lollie Ames was pleased that entries were only down a few from last year’s, adding, “We held our halter classes on Saturday night, which helped to make the division very special. There are quite a few halter specialists in this region, and the stands were full. People liked the revised schedule, and our youth entries were definitely up from the 2010 show’s numbers.” “Dressage this year was huge,” Hershberger continues. “The Pre-Show alone had more than 100 dressage entries! We had to hire a second Pre-Show judge

10 • Region 7 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

because the classes were so large. Mary Grace Davidson was the Pre-Show’s initial dressage judge; we brought in Julie Sodowsky to take some of the class load; 100 dressage entries over two days are too many for one judge.” Other Pre-Show judges included Kevin Price, Deborah Johnson and Deb Witte, and Marnye Langer made the calls in the Pre-Show’s hunter and jumper classes. Lori SchroderRoss, Cathleen Murphy Wright and Duane Esser judged most of the 2011 Region 7 Championship classes, with Natalie Lamping officiating in dressage. Pre-Show judge Deborah Johnson stayed over to adjudicate the championship show’s working western classes, while Mike Nielsen handled the hunter/jumper and sport horse divisions. “Everybody had a great time!” enthuses Susan Shea, who oversees youth activities for both Region 7 and the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona. She ramrods the popular “winner takes all” Ride-A-Buck class. “We had 25 entries, which meant we started with a pot of $25,” she explains. “At the in-gate someone gave me $40 to add to the total, and that gave me an idea. I walked into the ring, took the microphone and challenged the crowd to add to the pot. Everybody tried to out-do everybody else, and we raised more than $200, all of which went to the class winner.” “We had the most excellent horses this year!” Hershberger marvels. “The highest quality horses imaginable were here—horses with incredible credentials. There were national champions competing in every class in just about every division!” “The Half-Arabian hunter pleasure class, for one, was wonderful,” Susan Shea interjects. “The judges got on the microphone as we waited for results, to tell the crowd how pleased they were. We had other, truly memorable, quality-filled classes, and the two shows ran along smoothly, with no complaints. In fact, I never heard a single negative word, from start to finish. It’s hard to imagine a horse show better than the 2011 Region 7 PreShow and Championships. Our committee made some scheduling changes that were very well received; no show sessions lasted into the late hours; and everyone there was proud to have been part of such a first-class event.”

HALTER horse

How do you describe "return on investment?" by Mary Kirkman

J u ne 2011 | 93

H

n the Arabian horse business, one term often heard when marketers are pursuing new clients is “return on investment.” It was especially prevalent in the heyday of the 1980s, when promoters tried to equate the Arabian business with the mainstream corporate world, where savvy investment could provide dazzling profit. Routinely, claims were made that a layout of cash now would secure big money later; perfectly-bred foals would sell for more than their dams had cost, or successful show stallions would reap millions at stud. Sometimes the assurances came true, but more often they did not. With living creatures, predicting the future is rarely a sure thing. A quarter of a century and a different economy (with different tax laws later), what does “return on investment” mean in Arabian horses? The question applies across the board in the breed, but this time we focused on the halter division, the point of entry for many newcomers. Here is what a selection of halter specialists told us.


HALTER ___________________________________________

Ron ARmstRong

Armstrong ArAbiAns newAgo, mich.

___________________________________________

“I don’t think you should consider ‘return on investment’ as always being about money, because it depends on your goal. Most of our clients love the beauty of the Arabian horse first; from there, I ask what they want to achieve. For a lot of people, their goal is the show—the ribbon, the trophy, the national champion. One way to pursue that is to buy a horse and take it out and win (and meet a lot of great people, which is the social side of things, also a part of your return on investment). “For a lot of others, including us, our return on investment is the breeding of the Arabian horse. In our minds, when we see a horse that wins, we often wonder about its bloodlines—who the dam is, for instance, because we really prize the mares. Our return on investment is being able to produce something that would, yes, be able to sell for a lot of money, but as a small breeding farm, what is more important is that we want to be known over time for the stamp that we can put on the Arabian horse. We want to create something that can play a part in the continued love and popularity of the breed.

“Every year, I think our return on investment happens in the spring when the foals are born. My biggest visual is of being in the barn at the time of birth, and in the darkness, you begin to hear the other horses talk. They know a foal is being born. That is the one return on investment—regardless of whether the foal ever becomes a national champion—that touches us, that makes us want to do it again and again. “So, I would say if people are getting into Arabian horses as a money-making venture, thinking they will buy low and sell high, most will end up disappointed. I would hope that we, as breeders or Arabian horse marketing people, would help them focus a little more on reality. In my opinion, it shouldn’t all be about the money.”

“Return on investment financially can be frustrating. However, with a diligent train of thought, good guidance and some good mares, it is possible. “With one good-producing mare bred correctly, you can see a return—but not necessarily every year. That might be a good reason to have three or four ‘good’ producing mares. That increases your odds of producing at least one ‘star’ every year and achieving some return. The key words to achieve that are good guidance and good mares.”

“First and foremost, you need to have a true admiration for the Arabian horse and a serious desire to have these beautiful creatures in your life. ‘Return on investment’ should not be your primary motive for becoming a member of the Arabian horse community. If it is, you’ll be disappointed.

teRRy Holmes

“Having said that—yes, there is profit being made every day, every minute in the Arabian marketplace. Sometimes it’s enormous. Sometimes it’s just a few pennies. “I believe that the greatest opportunity for one seeking return is to purchase top quality fillies and top quality mares, then to select top-of-themarket stallions that have proven their merit as sires. When breeders offer the products of their programs, the prices should be fair for the market, allowing room for the buyers to show and ultimately gain from their purchases. “The opportunity for success is greater with females, so it’s always safest to leave the

___________________________________________ “‘Return on investment’ in Arabian horses can be summed up as financial gain, personal pride, family or personal enjoyment, tax benefits, camaraderie, or simply horse showing experiences. “To achieve return on investment in Arabian horses I must first ask a client, new investor, or myself, ‘why am I investing?’ With knowing this answer you can establish goals to set to achieve return on investment. “A buyer that buys Arabian horses at a low price and sells at a higher price, and thus turns a profit, achieves his goal and makes money—return on investment. “A breeder, small or large, that invests in producing foals each year that serve a purpose achieves return on having quality foals that will be sold or put back into the breeding program—thus, personal pride.

“The person or family that invests in Arabian horses purely for enjoyment achieves instant return on investment for buying an Arabian horse.

Claudinei Machado

“For the investor who invests solely for camaraderie, his return on investment is becoming a part of the Arabian horse community, whether this is clubs, horse shows, trail rides, or other events. This is a great return on investment, as our Arabian horse community has so much to offer and is filled with incredible, supportive people and Arabian horses. “For the horse show enthusiast, return on investment could be a blue ribbon, the thrill of victory, the enjoyment of competing or watching a loved one or friend competing. “So in achieving ‘return on investment,’ it is important to know the goals for each and every investor and to strive to attain a good return on investment for each. “For me personally, my best investment was 11 years ago when my daughter Chloe started riding and competing

HALTER at Arabian horse shows. Chloe is now 18 years old and competing at her last Youth Nationals this year before going on to college. Along the way, I have invested a lot of money, but the return on investment is definitely priceless. The feeling of pride watching her progress as a rider and also as a person is priceless. The Arabian community she has been introduced to has been priceless. The Arabian horses, the people you meet, her fellow competitors, the accomplishments, and, of course, the thrill of victory, are priceless. Again, in my personal case, ‘return on investment’ achieved.”

“If you breed, you need to breed right to get a high quality horse. If you breed mediocre mares to mediocre stallions, the chances are you will get a mediocre horse. If you are breeding to sell, you have to remember that people who come from other countries to buy horses don’t come to buy mediocre ones. They come here to buy the high quality horses.

___________________________________________

“You also have to remember that just breeding high quality horses is not enough; you have to be aware of what the marketing is looking for today. The horses that won 10 or 15 years ago would not necessarily win today. In the evolution of the Arabian, we are seeing so many beautiful horses every year. They are getting better and better—and yet, a lot of people are still breeding horses better suited for years ago, so that when they go to the shows, those horses appear to be ordinary.

“When you get into Arabian horses, you have to enjoy what you are doing. First, figure out what you want—that’s true with anything. In my opinion, you’ll do best if you invest in a good quality horse. Buy the best quality you can, because low quality horses eat the same thing as the higher quality ones; you’ll spend the same amount of money to feed them. If you have a good quality horse, you will enjoy it more. If you go to a show, you will be in the competition and you might win something.

“My advice is to be honest with yourself about where you want to go, where you want to be. There is nothing wrong with just having a nice horse that you enjoy and maybe take to the regional. If you enjoy your horse and that is all you want, that is fine—you have your return on investment. Just don’t expect it to become a national champion, because you probably will just be frustrated. Make sure your expectations are realistic, and you’ll do best in getting your ‘return on investment.’”

“There is a passage of scripture that I’ve heard all my life that applies to receiving a ‘return on investment’—it says ‘do not spend your labor on that which does not satisfy.’ How do you define ‘your labor?’ It could be our time, our money, and those things that we hold of value. So, a return on investment is something that brings this satisfaction. “When I personally invest more money in the stock market than I receive back (as is the case over the past few years), I am not satisfied. However, when I spend money to buy new hunt boots for my daughter, or her new side saddle outfit so that she can show, there is no monetary investment coming back, but I am satisfied. It might be the same amount of money, but one brings satisfaction and one does not.

“Translating this line of thought into the halter world, I would not counsel anyone to get an Arabian horse unless, first and foremost, they have a love for


HALTER the horse. If they have this love and desire to own the horse, then I know that they will be satisfied. Whether they end up making money, receiving a tax benefit, and/or receiving their own enjoyment, they are going to find satisfaction. That, to me, equals a return on their investment. With the halter breeding world, there are several avenues available for people to pursue. Breeding stallions, breeding mares, career show horses, young show prospects, embryo options, etc., are all ways for people to enjoy this passion and have opportunities for financial benefit.

“Oftentimes when I meet with newcomers in the business, I talk to them about their current life and what they enjoy. What I find they are seeking for themselves are two things: one, they do truly want a connection with the horse; and two, they are looking for a social setting to include in their calendar. They want to meet new people, travel and have a social network they can fit into. I feel that the Arabian horse, as much as it is a spiritual connection with the animal itself, also provides a unique setting in which people can do things together. They can make friends all across the world and create a bond that is not otherwise available in the professional world. “I also believe that I need to be willing to put my money where my mouth is, and provide that kind of experience for my family. My wife enjoys all the people that she meets from all walks of life. I love sending my kids out to ride with performance

trainers like Kim Christy in California, my sister Carolyn McDonald, and Natalie Jones. The schedule gets hectic, but they have a great time. My youngest daughter, who is 9, was at the 2011 Egyptian Event, and Talaria Farms had an amateur horse entered for the youth halter class. European trainer Johanna Ullström helped her in schooling this beautiful mare. Just watching Johanna counsel my daughter and then coach her through the class was absolutely priceless. When do little kids like that ever get opportunities to interact with adult professionals and meet people from all backgrounds? It’s worth spending every penny I have to make sure they have adventures like that.” ___________________________________________

For the last few years we have concentrated too much on the profit portion of the business and are losing the passion for them, and this is why I think we are continually seeing the number of horses being bred decreasing. I always like to bring to our clients the beauty that is the Arabian horse lifestyle. There is the magic of seeing a new foal born and being part of creating a dream.

Leaders Of The Times: June Calendar Feature

Marjestic WA by Colleen Scott Lisa east, Arabians of Qiran al Sa’dain LLC, brentwood, Tenn., was traveling when she made the decision to show Marjestic WA at the region 10 Championships. it was not all that monumental of a decision, unless you consider the fact that she’d never shown in the halter division before and that she would have to go directly from her business trip to the pre-show. First on the agenda: show clothes and boots. east managed to find the boots she had pictured in her mind’s eye, and one of the first of several serendipitous moments came on the heels of that purchase. As the cashier rang up her selection, east noticed the boot style name on the box: Shada. Since Marjestic WA’s home is at Shada inc., in elk river, Minn., it seemed to be an omen. With proper attire in hand, east continued on to Shada, where trainer Jeff Schall provided a crash course in stallion presentation. east and Marjestic struggled at first, but quickly developed the kind of rapport that often sets handler/horse teams apart from one another in the show ring. “one of the things she was worried about,” recalls Schall, “was how fast she should run. My advice to her was to first get her legs moving and then to go as fast as she possibly could—you’re never going to outrun your horse.” it wasn’t long before east and Marjestic appeared to be old pros. “She really took to it quickly,” says Schall. “but then, Lisa and Marjestic have a very special relationship. She loves that horse and he knows it. besides her significant other, Marjestic is her knight in shining armor.” Marjestic WA would go on to capture the region 10 Stallion AoTH Championship with east proudly at 102 | A r A bi A n Hor Se T i MeS

the lead, which didn’t come as a big surprise to Schall. “This horse has a huge heart. He tries 100 percent every single day,” says the trainer. “Showing so well for Lisa and winning the amateur title there affirms everything we’ve thought about this horse. He not only has the conformation, quality and type necessary to win a competitive open or amateur-to-handle in-hand class, but he has the kind of heart it takes to partner with someone new to the discipline and be successful.” How did east and Marjestic WA end up in the winner’s circle at the region 10 Show? it all started with a chance encounter in cyberspace. Although she had been a horse lover, and specifically an Arabian admirer, for many years, east wasn’t really shopping for a horse—much less a stallion—when she happened upon a stock photo of Marjestic WA. “There was something about him. i couldn’t get him off my mind,” she recalls. Curious, she emailed an inquiry to breeder Andrea Wadsworth and the rest, as they say, is history. The first phone call to Wadsworth resulted in the two not only becoming fast friends, but also with east ultimately purchasing the stallion. “You know, sometimes logic tells you one thing but your gut tells you something else entirely,” she says. “That’s how it was with this horse. My mind told me i wasn’t looking for a show horse and all that would entail, but my heart told me i was meant to have him in my life.” As Wadsworth recalls, east was enthusiastic about Marjestic WA when she made that initial inquiry. “She was so excited about the picture that she had found of him, and we talked and talked some more!” she says. “We had many conversations, and she naturally had many questions that we went through. Knowing she was new to Arabian horses and excited, i had and still have a responsibility to make sure she bought this horse knowing all i could tell her. We need people in our breed that have someone treat them correctly, and have a good experience, so they can do the same down the road.”


Marjestic WA’s appeal to East wasn’t entirely happenstance. “I spent each summer riding horses at my grandmother’s farm in Arkansas,” she explains. “The neighbors bred Arabians, and I was mesmerized by their sheer beauty, especially that of their stallion. Evenings were spent watching him run the fence with his tail flagged, showing off for the mares. Days were spent on horseback exploring miles of dirt roads, pine forests, ponds, creeks and back pastures on top of Wolverton Mountain. Those summers are some of my best memories.” Her grandmother’s neighbors often let East ride some of their Arabian mares on those day-long rides, and East vowed to herself that she would someday own an Arabian horse. Little did she know that it would be a stallion of such potential significance. For those well-versed in the Arabian industry, one look at Marjestic WA’s pedigree helps explain why East became so enamored of him. His sire, *Marwan Al Shaqab, needs no introduction. Marwan’s long list of accolades includes World, Qatari, Nations Cup, European and U.S. National Championships. What makes Marjestic even more unique, however, is the strength of his dam line, starting with Miraga WA. “Miraga WA is a beautiful, long-legged mare with correct conformation and a high-set, elegant neck,” Wadsworth says. “Bred to *Marwan, she gave Marjestic two crosses to Fame VF, and several more to Raffon. I also thought they were very similar in style and if the breeding worked the way I hoped, it would be an outstanding foal. She also is out of a triple Aristocrat dam line.” Given that heritage, it is easy to see how East could fall in love with the stallion based on a photograph. East eventually decided to send Marjestic WA to Schall at Shada Inc. for the next phase of his career. Her instinct proved to be right, as Schall led the stallion to a unanimous regional championship in 2009, followed by a top ten at the U.S. Nationals in the deepest junior stallion class anyone can remember in years. Getting a late start by debuting in his 4-year-old year, Marjestic established himself among his more experienced peers by being the only horse finishing in the top half of that class that wasn’t already a national champion. Schall has this to say about Marjestic WA: “A common thread amongst legendary stallions is a dynamic expression with an innate sense of purpose. Marjestic just seems to know that he is one of the elites. He is arrogant yet personable, confident yet humble, refined yet full of strength and power. Although new on the show scene, he absolutely exploded last year with Scottsdale, regional

Lisa East and Marjestic WA, the 2011 Region 10 Stallion Halter AOTH Champions.

and national titles. It is so rare to find an individual that embodies so many of the breed’s standards. He literally is exceptional in so many ways, from top to bottom, front to back. His effort and willingness is evident in everything he does.” That incredible pedigree has been put to good use as the stallion has been filling his stud book with high quality mares. “He has several babies on the ground, and we’re really excited about what is to come,” says Schall. “We are consistently seeing babies with incredible balance, smoothness, expression and great beauty.” One of the yearlings East and Schall are excited about is Meiomi, a filly that resulted from the pairing of Meiata, the stallion’s grand dam, and Marjestic. “I can see that Marjestic is able to pass on his great attributes,” says East. “Meiomi is lovely and shares the same qualities as the entire first foal crop, including refinement, nice long legs, large, beautiful eyes and correct conformation.” In addition to an active breeding career and the continuation of his halter career, with plans to compete at both the Canadian Nationals and U.S. Nationals (in both open and amateur-to-handle), Marjestic WA may find himself under saddle and making a foray into the performance arena. “The goal is to be able to allow him to showcase his beauty, athleticism and intelligence by competing in dual disciplines, exhibiting the versatility for which the Arabian horse is known,” East says. Regardless of his future jobs, East and Schall are committed to the handsome and charismatic stallion. “He will always have a place at Shada,” says Schall. “He has a place in all of our hearts.” n J U NE 2011 | 103

2011 Youth Nationals—


Riding High On A

Of

Expectations by Colleen Scott


2011 Youth NatioNals Preview

nearly two decades old now, the Youth national Arabian & Half-Arabian Championship Horse show is nearly upon us. From July 23-30, 2011, thousands of horses and exhibitors will gather in Albuquerque, n.m., to compete in what is likely the culmination of their entire competitive year. For some, there will be tears of joy as they take a victory pass; for others, perhaps tears of disappointment as they realize that the performance they delivered wasn’t the one they had hoped for. but for all, it will be memorable, and for all, it will be a celebration of the bond between horse and rider. Longtime show Commission member and its current chair mickey Hegg describes the Youth nationals as being far more than a show. “it is 10 days of education, competition

and fun for our great riders,” she says. This year’s schedule confirms her sentiments. in addition to the standard fare of classes, this year’s show includes several new opportunities. An exciting addition to this year’s show is reined Cow Horse JTr 17 & Under Limited exhibitions in the Arabian and Half-Arabian divisions. “They would be inclusive of a reining pattern, followed by the release of one


2011 Youth NatioNals Preview

cow into the arena, with the rider ‘boxing’ the cow at the end of the arena,” says Hegg. “They do not take the cow down the rail, nor do they work circles; it would perhaps be compared to a walk/trot or introductory class when approved by the united States equestrian Federation (uSeF). That means on December 1 of this year, which is why it is being run as an exhibition class this year. It is our hope that more youth will become involved in the working western classes of shows, as generally there is quite a lot of interest.” Another new segment of competition is Arabian Sport Horse under Saddle jTR 17 & under, which has been added for both Arabians and Half-Arabians. Also on the agenda, as has been a tradition for the past several years, is the Arabian Professional and Amateur Horseman’s

Association clinic, which this year will feature the 2010 Horseman and Horsewoman Of The Year, Bob Battaglia and Vickey Bowman. Slated from 2-5 p.m., Thursday, july 21, in the Horse Arena, it is always a highlight. This will be followed by the uSeF Saddle Seat experts, talking about the saddle seat team. “All of these events are in addition to the other annual events, such as the stick horse race for the little ones, hippology, resale availability of riding clothes, youth judging and the annual Arabian Youth Association convention,” says Hegg. “All days and times can be found in the Omnibus, which is also available online.” Although she has been involved for many years, Hegg never tires of the Youth nationals, even though it requires a long trip from her home in Ireland. “What keeps me interested year after year is the youth themselves, as I

enjoy working with them,” she says. “secondly, i am a lifelong fan of the Arabian horse—put the two together and it’s a great combination every time. Lastly, i believe that we all need to give back to what we believe in, and i enjoy working with people and making the best show we can make. Working with the other members of the Youth national show Commission has always been a most enjoyable effort for me, and, i hope, for them. We may not always agree, but we work well together and respect each other’s opinions, and try to do what is best for our show. our support staff has always been the best, and we have people coming to do their all-important jobs, and everyone is an expert at what they do.

and to enjoy the camaraderie of their peers. Last year’s youth were such good troopers, and excellent young horsemen and women, as they are every year.”

Hegg notes that there have been a few challenges this year, especially the delay of the omnibus and the eHV-1 outbreak which caused the cancellation of some shows. “We are hoping that our exhibitors will be able to find shows with their necessary classes in order to qualify,” she says. “our main aim is to have a national show where our youth exhibitors can come to compete for the final top honors,

At this writing, entries are still pouring in (due to the extension of the deadline following the eHV-1 outbreak and delayed omnibus), so it is hard to predict how many young Arabian enthusiasts will make the trip to new mexico. but what is certain is that when the show concludes on saturday, July 30, every exhibitor will have a lifetime of memories to take home.

Another challenge facing the show Commission is the sponsorship of jackets and belt buckles. “We know that for many, these are not easy times. We have never raised the price of these sponsorships, which are $300, and have worked very diligently with our vendor to keep the price of the awards the same so we can continue to present them to our winners. We are most grateful to our vendors for working with us, and hope we can get the sponsors needed to continue this traditional program.”

Exciting New Cutting Clinic Offered at Youth Nationals membership Chair of the Arabian Cutting Horse Association, wanted to share her love of the discipline with others. on Thursday and Friday, July 28 and 29, she has made arrangements to provide youth riders with the opportunity of a lifetime: riding a finished cutting horse in a clinic setting with multititled trainer John Garland. The horses provided for this event aren’t just any horses, but all champions, with each of them holding an average of four national cutting titles. Participants will do dry work on Thursday

and move on to live cattle Friday. There is a nominal fee of $50. We caught up with Toni and asked a few questions about this new, exciting opportunity. What made you want to organize this event at Youth Nationals? Although i have only been involved in Arabian cutting for a few years, it has been the most fun i have ever had in a lifetime of involvement with horses. i am always looking


2011 Youth NatioNals Preview

What are you hoping to accomplish by putting this together?

As a horse-crazy kid of modest means, I was blessed with many wonderful mentors and

benefactors who helped nurture my interest through involvement in clinics and other

educational activities presented by 4-H and various Arabian horse clubs. As an adult, I

have found my passion and been blessed with for opportunities to promote cutting, and in particular Arabian cutting, to anyone who will listen. Last year, my husband and I hosted two all-breed introductory cutting clinics at our farm with john Garland as the clinician. They were very well received, but I felt that we could get more people ‘hooked’ if they could ride actual finished cutting horses, rather than trying to learn about cutting and cattle work on their trail and pleasure horses. When I decided to try to put together a clinic where we provided people with finished horses to ride, I had several reasons for wanting to hold it at Youth nationals. Obviously, the youth are the future of any sport or discipline, so I wanted a venue with lots of young people. I also wanted to present the sport to a large, diverse audience that might not otherwise have the opportunity to watch or participate in cutting. Finally, because I was hoping to use some of the best competitive horses in the industry, I wanted to hold the clinic at a time and place that would not interfere with these horses’ show schedules. Youth nationals presented the obvious best fit for all these criteria. I am very grateful to all of the other horse owners and trainers who are sharing their great horses and time to make this clinic a reality. I also owe a debt of gratitude to Mickey Hegg and the Youth nationals Show Commission for accepting my clinic proposal.

more success than I dared dream through

my involvement in Arabian cutting. not only is

the sport exciting and challenging, but it is filled

with some of the nicest, most helpful horse people I have ever met. I feel compelled to share what I

think is the “best-kept secret” in our industry: that Arabians are great cutting horses and that cutting is a rewarding and challenging sport that can be enjoyed by horse lovers of any age.

Any other thoughts about the interest of youth in the working western divisions?

I think that horsemen and women of all ages

are drawn to the working western divisions for obvious reasons. In all of our working western disciplines, horses are shown individually and scored objectively, giving the impression of

a more level playing field than that of other

disciplines. Adding cattle to the mix is a great

equalizer, making every competition anybody’s to win or lose. Young people are very active in these types of events outside of the Arabian breed. It

is up to us to show our youth that Arabians are suitable working western mounts.

My last year as a youth has finally arrived, and I would never be where I am today without the love, guidance, and support of so many great people. My parents have been with me every step of the way; not only have they financed my endeavors, but they have encouraged me to push myself and to gain as much as I can from this experience. I have had the privilege of working with many amazing trainers over the years, including Rick Nab, Lori Ross, Ryan Strand, and Jason Krohn. They have all played a part in shaping me as a rider and have helped me to achieve great success. I owe many thanks to Carole Stohlmann, who has put the ‘finishing touches’ on my riding and has made me realize my full potential. Lastly, I would like to thank Kelly Mathews, my trainer. Without her, none of this would ever have been possible. I owe my achievements and the happiness that has come with them to all of you. Thank you so much for making this such a valuable and memorable experience.

2011 Youth NatioNals Judges This year’s Youth nationals judges carry the monumental honor of adjudicating what is the highlight of the year for our youth riders. The panels are Martha Murdock, john Rannenberg and Richard Wright for english/Saddle Seat; Kelly Alcorn, jeff Lee and Deb Witty for Western/ Reining and Trail; jeremy Harper, janet Henderson and Kevin jochens for Hunter Pleasure/Show Hack and Showmanship; Archibald Cox, Dale Pederson and Kristen Freeman Lowry for Hunt Seat/Working Hunter; and joan Darnell and Charlotte Trentelman for Dressage. We caught up with some of them between shows and asked a few questions.

Is this the first time you are judging Youth Nationals? If so, what are you most looking forward to? If not, what is your favorite thing about this show? Kelly Alcorn: This is my third time judging Youth nationals. As always, it’s the kids, the smiles, the tears, and the growth in each and every exhibitor there. Joan Darnell: Yes, this is the first time I will be judging the Arabian Youth nationals. I’m looking forward to seeing some great rides with correct training. Janet Henderson: Yes, this is the first time I will be judging Youth nationals. I am looking forward to seeing high caliber young riders on their great horses. Kevin Jochens: This is not my first time judging Youth nationals. It is always a joy. What I am most pleased about is the camaraderie of the kids. They compete against each other and yet root for each other. It’s refreshing. Jeff Lee: I have judged Youth nationals before. I like to watch their enthusiasm and their energy. I also like to see them make their trainers crazy. Martha Murdock: I have judged Youth nationals before. I look forward to judging Saddle Seat equitation because at the highest level of competition our riders begin to shine even as early as the walk/trot age group. For example, I judged a walk/trot national Champion who went on to

become a rider on the Gold Medal World Cup Team uSA. It was very rewarding to see this rider with riders from all breeds representing a discipline on the world stage and remembering how her talent was so easy to recognize when judging her in her first national Championship class. John Ranneberg: This is my first time judging Youth nationals. However, I have attended many times over the years as a coach. I always look forward to seeing the outstanding horses and the very high level of horsemanship and determination. Charlotte Trentelman: This is my first time judging Youth nationals. I’m looking forward to the energy and dedication shown by the riders and their support teams (families and trainers) that kept them focused on qualifying and arriving at the show. I expect all to be serious competitors—but also have fun. Deb Witty: Yes, this is my first time judging Youth nationals. I’m looking forward to working with the other two judges on my panel, jeff Lee and Kelly Alcorn.

How can we encourage our youth riders to continue as adult riders? Joan Darnell: Youth riders need to have correct training and be mounted on safe horses with which they can be successful. Success breeds confidence, and confident riders enjoy the sport and hopefully will continue to train and compete as they become adults. Janet Henderson: I think our shows and our association can continue to emphasize a sense of camaraderie and inclusion to encourage continued participation. Kevin Jochens: In most cases there is going to be a natural “gap” at some point. Leaving high school and entering college or the work force is going to cause a natural increase in social and financial pressures that wasn’t present before. I think the key is keeping the interest alive, and with the generation we are talking about, that means social media. Maintaining a feeling of engagement with the breed and sport through social media is vital to their re-entering the industry when the pressure mentioned before alleviates. If they “drop off ” and form other interests, we have lost them, probably for good.

j u ne 2011 | Youth • 77


2011 Youth NatioNals Judges Jeff Lee: i think we can encourage the youth by building their confidence and helping them have fun. Hopefully, they will want to continue. Martha Murdock: i think that this question is an universal one that covers not only youth but all exhibitors in our breed. For way too long we have put the emphasis on qualifications or earning points to get to the next level. The results of this are that shows are held with little to offer but class after class with little or no competition. There is no time to talk to people or even enjoy time with customers if you are a trainer. The horse shows are not fun. You can add this to not being able to tell an exhibitor when they are going to be showing, because you really have no idea how many classes will be canceled that day. The most difficult situation for me to explain is when you have a horse or rider that really wants to go to the horse show and go up the levels and your ability to take them there depends on how many entries show up in a class. You see, even if they win, it may not be enough points to get them where they want to go by the deadline. Why are we making it more difficult to show our horses when we need to make it easier? showing Arabians should be for the fun of it, and exhibitors need to feel that they can’t wait to go to the next one and spend time with their horses and friends, not that they have to go to get qualified for anything. next, as judges we have to take the class descriptions and follow them as they are written. We have them on the top of every judge’s card that we are handed before every class. For too many years this has been ignored, and if a horse wins in one division he just keeps on winning. some horses can be top open horses and top amateur horses in the same year, but many can’t and by class description should not be winning. Just as some country english pleasure horses can do a good job as a show hack horse, but many simply change tack and because they are great horses they are winning, but not by the rules we are supposed to be judging by. it is not just pick the best horse that gets around the ring with the fewest mistakes no matter how much we love the horse. The horse has to perform according to the class description to win the class. exhibitors need to understand the concept of quality, manners, performance, conformation, substance, suitability and how these apply to the classes they enter.

78 • Youth | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

John Rannenberg: i find it hard to believe that these young riders and handlers would not continue on as adults in some capacity. These kids live and breathe horses and have been doing so since they were just old enough to get on. Competing at this level requires such a huge commitment and dedication to perfecting your craft. What a great life lesson to learn at such a young age! Charlotte Trentelman: There is usually a time when young riders have to go to college, start careers and families, and become adults. A percentage will come back when, years later, they have time to commit to themselves again. i believe it is the bond between the young rider and the horse that brings them back. The closer they are involved in the day-to-day life of the horse as young people, the greater the chance is that they will want to return. Deb Witty: i feel that we can make the youth experience the best possible so that showing becomes a passion that they want to carry into adulthood. it should be more than just about the ribbons, it should be about the whole experience.

At the most recent show you judged, was there anything that stood out in your mind as being particularly good? Kelly Alcorn: What stands out at most of the shows i judge is the “try” and “heart” in the exhibitors and their horses. Joan Darnell: The last show i judged was the region 11 Championships in springfield, ill. i was very impressed with the quality of the horses. They were very much a sport horse type, and most of them were accepting the contact appropriate for their level of training. Janet Henderson: i have had the pleasure most recently, of seeing quality training and happy horses in the hunter pleasure, country english pleasure and the sport horse divisions. Kevin Jochens: When i judge, i always marvel at the dedication of the trainers and exhibitors. Different horses and riders are going to rise to different levels


2011 Youth NatioNals Judges of achievement depending on natural ability, but the dedication to the craft of horsemanship can be constant, and seeing it carrying through makes me feel good about the future of horse sports. Jeff Lee: The last show I judged was in Santa Barbara. I noticed a lot of older people showing in amateur classes. The trail classes I judged out there were very good. Martha Murdock: I judged a show recently that had a large number of new riders and horses. These exhibitors were new to the show ring and were riding with various training barns, and some were on their own. They were all select riders and even though they were from different barns you could see that they were enjoying and supporting each other. These riders were all properly mounted with horses that suited their ability, and they loved being in the horse show. It was such a thrill to have exhibitors appreciate our efforts while judging them. When we walked the line, they had big smiles on their faces because they were happy to be there. The trainers and friends who got them there did a great job matching the riders with their horses and keeping them safe. The select division is a great concept and one that needs to continue to be used wisely for the level of horse and rider. It should be a place for our most seasoned veterans to find homes. John Rannenberg: I had the privilege of judging the Ohio Buckeye. It was refreshing to see that although it is a really tough time for our country and economy, there is still a great desire to show beautiful and talented Arabian and Half-Arabian horses. Charlotte Trentelman: At the most recent show I judged (recognized dressage), I was struck by the number of different breeds and crosses shown and the increase of amateurs and juniors competing with them. At times, we are stuck in a rut with one breed, or one line of a breed, forgetting that dressage can be done well by all, if trained correctly. Suitability is an important factor that we sometimes forget. Deb Witty: Recently, I judged the Pre-Show at Region 7 and was very impressed with the youth reining horses.

Reining seat equitation has come a long way, and I am looking forward to judging it in july.

Is there something you think the youth riders are better at than their adult counterparts? Kelly Alcorn: Making their own fun is something we adults seem to lose as we age. Joan Darnell: Youth riders usually are very enthusiastic riders, and most are very determined to be successful. Janet Henderson: I think our Arabian youth have the benefit of some wonderful trainers. So, if they are better at anything, it is a result of that good training. Kevin Jochens: I sometimes think that the youth riders are better than the adults at rooting for each other even while they are competing against each other. This is an area in which they can teach the adults something. Jeff Lee: The youth riders have no fear. As we get older, we start getting afraid. Martha Murdock: Hopefully, they will all be good students and know and understand the rules. John Rannenberg: Probably relaxing. Seems like the older we get, the more stress we put on ourselves. Charlotte Trentelman: Young riders are more forward thinking in their riding. They don’t hold back as much. They also don’t seem as rattled by outside disturbances as much. Deb Witty: I think that younger riders have the advantage over adults, purely from a standpoint of “lack of inhibitions.” They have no fear, they are not paying the bills, and they do not worry about the future nearly as much as adults. Adults let “baggage” get in their way sometimes, and they take this way too seriously. Kids seem to be more relaxed. Adults tend to forget that this is just a horse show, not a summit to negotiate world peace, and that there will be another one next week …

2011 Youth NatioNals Judges

What do you hope our youth riders take away from this show? Kelly Alcorn: i hope all the exhibitors leave this national show with some emotional growth and their love of the horse intact. Joan Darnell: i hope the riders will have successful rides and if not, that by my comments on the tests, they will be able to gain a little piece of advice that will improve their rides for the next show. Janet Henderson: i am a coach, clinician and a competitor, so i understand what it is like to “put yourself out there.” Put your best effort forward and take pride in your best moments. Kevin Jochens: i would hope our youth riders will take away a sense of pride in their efforts, whether or not those efforts are rewarded at the show. The rewards may be down the road for some of them, but there will be rewards for them in life for having competed. Jeff Lee: Have the knowledge that you tried your best and were fair to your horse. if you do that, then you are a winner. Martha Murdock: i hope the winners understand how lucky they are to have the horses that got them there and the adults that supported them. Also, i hope that those who don’t win understand how lucky they are to have a Youth nationals to show in at all. They should know that many of us that make a living training horses didn’t win our first Top Tens until we were in our 20s because we didn’t have a Youth nationals. my first nationals was in 1973, and the only youth classes were saddle seat and stock seat. The youth of today have a lot to be thankful for, and i would be curious to know how many people remember who won those two classes in 1973? That should put some perspective on winning and losing, because it is the ride that people remember, not the roses.

John Rannenberg: regardless of the outcome at the show, recognize the fact that just getting to Youth nationals to compete is huge. be a good sport. Tell someone you don’t know who just won, Congratulations! it will make their day, and you will feel good too. remember to treat your horse with respect and kindness and be aware of its needs. Charlotte Trentelman: super memories of a great time! Deb Witty: i hope that riders come away with a feeling of accomplishment. riding at nationals is a big deal in itself. being there and having fun and doing your best is what it is all about.

There are a lot of big classes with high quality horses and talented riders at Youth Nationals. What helps set the champions apart for you? Kelly Alcorn: it’s all in the details. neat, clean, safe, and presented with confidence. Janet Henderson: i want to see harmony between horse and rider. The homework has been done, and the polish has been added. Kevin Jochens: The things that set the champions apart are frequently minute and subtle. i was asked after judging my first national level show, “Wasn’t it hard with so many great horses?” i replied, “no, that’s what made it easy.” There was so much from which to choose, i could usually pick exactly what i wanted and not “settle.” That fact that the differences are so small is also why judges will almost never judge exactly alike. it’s why we must respect each other and our efforts and opinions. on any given day there may be several horses in the ring that could win. each of us sees something different in each horse. Defining those qualities … honing them and presenting them at just the right moment is what makes a champion. That’s what makes a show like this so exciting. Great horses and great riders … all searching for their “moment.” i can’t wait to judge it, and i hope i am in center ring when those moments come to pass.


2011 Youth NatioNals Judges

Jeff Lee: Confidence really stands out to me in the ring. That comes from doing the homework before you get there.

Janet Henderson: Breathe! everyone coming through the in-gate has a nagging issue; so, the best advice is to keep riding, keep smiling, and remember to breathe!

Martha Murdock: It is important to keep in mind that there will be three of us making the choices about who will be champion. In the two show rings that we will be judging in, we will at times be controlling the ring by calling the classes and there will be other times when we see these horses from a different perspective. Horses will look different from ring to ring and from the judge’s position in the ring. Horses look different going different directions of the ring and on or off the rail depending on the horse. The riders who do their homework and know where in these rings their horse looks best at each gait will have an advantage because each of us will have a different view at different times during the classes. The line-up is also important and how an exhibitor lines up counts as well. The line-up is not a rest period. It is the place to judge conformation and quality. If the horses are asked to back, they must back correctly. Riders who understand that there are three of us judging and show their horses accordingly will have an advantage. Know the horse and study the arena so you can use it to your advantage throughout the entire show.

Kevin Jochens: I would tell every exhibitor to have fun. enjoy the ride, and if you win, whatever it might be, green ribbon, pink ribbon, Top Ten, Reserve or Champion, appreciate it. As you are taking that last pass out the gate, be mentally “there.” Remember it always. nothing is promised us in life, and this experience may never come your way again. Jeff Lee: Have fun. Try not to get too nervous. just relax and do your best. Martha Murdock: We owe it to our youth to teach them a better way to look at our sport when it comes to the judges, and they will return to the ring as adults who have respect for what we are all trying to do … enjoy the Arabian horse.

John Rannenberg: Perfect harmony.

John Rannenberg: To remember to take a moment and reflect and think how fortunate you are to be doing something you love. never take these opportunities you have been given for granted and be appreciative to your parents, grandparents, or whoever helped you get there. What a gift! You are lucky!

Deb Witty: What sets a national champion apart for me can differ for each class. Sometimes it will be a great performance; sometimes it will reflect a gifted horse or rider that shines on that particular day. One thing that I have learned from showing on a national level is that everyone can be a champion on a given day, and every great horse and rider can have an “off day.” That is what keeps us coming back year after year.

Charlotte Trentelman: Don’t be afraid of judges! They really want you to succeed. In order to be a recognized uSeF judge we have had lots of show experience, and we all had “first shows.” There is probably nothing that can happen in the ring that the judge hasn’t at least seen before (or probably done themselves). If we are not smiling 100% of the time, perhaps it’s because we are concentrating on our jobs ... not because we don’t like what we see.

If you could share one piece of advice with every exhibitor, what would it be?

Deb Witty: My advice would be “do your best” and that is all you can do. every show has a different outcome, and the best way to enjoy the experience is to set personal goals and do your best. Win or lose, you can feel proud of your achievements if you try hard. n

Joan Darnell: Preparation is the key to performing the movements with precision and accuracy.

Christian SvenneS

A Heartfelt Thanks to:

Mom and Dad, Thank you so much for everything. You have been the most generous and supportive parents ever. In everything that I have pursued you two have been behind me one hundred percent. You never miss a concert, track meet, or horse show, yet you are the most busy people I know. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful parents. Lori, A big thanks to you for putting the finishing touches to my riding. You are much more than a coach to me; you are a great friend. I definitely plan to keep using your coaching into my 18-39 years. Eq for life! Deb, I can't even begin to thank you enough. These past few years have been the most amazing and rewarding years of my life. None of that would have been possible without all of the time and effort you so graciously invested in me. What began a short two years ago as a hobby, has become my passion and you are a big reason for that. My dream is to someday ride with the grace and "feel" that you do. Not only have you taught me how to ride, but you have taught me invaluable life lessons. You are a true teacher, horseman, and most of all, friend. I'm already excited to start the next chapter of my horse career after this year!

—Christian, Phil. 4:13

Wow! I cannot believe how fast the last six years have gone by! This Youth Nationals is definitely bittersweet for me; this being my last year. I am very blessed to own the horses I am showing this year—RH Gladiator /, Fabulaire, SC Don Julio and Goldmein LOA. I would not have had the opportunity to ride these wonderful horses that are performing to their fullest potential without the help of my trainers! I would like to thank all my trainers starting with Rick Nab. You have been on this journey with me from the very beginning and I am very lucky to have had your assistance the last six years. Next, Jim and Peter Stachowski, and Sharon Blendinger of the Stachowski team—you have been fantastic! Sharon has done a phenomenal job with Fabulaire and Peter with Gladiator. Thank you to my western trainers, Jody and Larry Hoffman of Hesten Park. You have improved my riding and helped with my confidence in the show ring. Lastly, Terry Holmes, for doing a great job with Gold Mein in halter. The biggest thanks of all goes to my grandparents—without you, none of the last six years would have been possible! Thank you!

~ Jacque Additional thanks to Mary Campbell and Ron Hunter of Mary Campbell Training Center, Bob Battaglia, Russ Vento Jr. and Jeff Lovejoy of Battaglia Farms, and Ellen Beard for all of her help fine tuning my riding.

(i am not quite sure what that will be yet.)    While at Youth Nationals, I could not get through the day without… a shower and talking to my friends from home. The one thing above all else that people should know about the Arabian horse is… that they never give up and you will always be worn out before they are. The most embarrassing moment I experienced when riding/showing my horse was… getting bucked off at a fence, then getting back on to jump it again, and then getting bucked off a second time at the same exact fence.   My favorite thing to do in Albuquerque during Youth Nationals is… go to old-Town and buy super spicy hot sauce—i am addicted to it.  My favorite app/video game is… Angry birds. i am so close to beating it and literally cannot stop playing.   If I lived under the sea, I would be a… starfish, because they get to chill all day and look pretty.

In Memoriam:

Gordon shea (1925-2011) by Linda White

“A great horse is a great horse. What breed it is doesn’t matter.”—Gordon Shea His life story could be set to music. A horseman extraordinaire, family man, salesman, inveterate storyteller and fine human being, Gordon shea left our midst on may 17, 2011, in scottsdale, Ariz. He was born August 10, 1925, in Lanigan, sask., into a life filled with adventure and rich experiences, both personal and professional. but those are just the facts, ma’am. The positive differences he made in the lives he touched, human or equine, are only part of the story. His friends and admirers tell the tale best, but first a few more facts, mostly unembroidered. Gordon shea was one of nine children. His parents, Herb and ethel shea, lived in Lanigan, a tiny (450 people) south-central saskatchewan village. The Great Depression, drought, dust storms and unemployment plagued the prairie province as the shea children grew up, but the family was essentially unscathed by world affairs—until september 1939, when Canada declared war on nazi Germany. Gordon was only 14 years old and too young for military service, but three of his brothers enlisted. Two years later, the picture changed. Gordon was 16, and anxious to serve with his brothers. He told the royal Canadian navy he was 18, so they accepted him, which made him the fourth shea brother then serving in the royal Canadian navy. He took anti-aircraft gunner’s training and shipped out from Halifax, nova scotia, into a pivotal chapter of world history. The young serviceman ultimately went aboard the H.m.C.s Algonquin, a Canadian iroquois-class destroyer headed for europe. The evening of June 5, 1944, found the H.m.C.s Algonquin and her counterpart, the H.m.C.s. sioux, anchored off the isle of Wight. The next morning, well before dawn, the two ships weighed anchor and crossed the english Channel to join a 5,000-ship Allied flotilla on the beaches of normandy. it was D-Day, and Gordon shea was there. After the war, now an honored combat veteran, he returned to Canada and took steps toward turning his affinity for horses into a career. He worked with his father at mattick’s Farm in Victoria, b.C., and in 1955 he married Lila. The two developed a horse training facility, the bar s ranch, in Victoria and started their family. in 1960, shea accepted (and quit three months later) a horse training position in Tucson, Ariz. He and his family stayed on, became naturalized U.s. citizens, and Gordon built his 304 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

business, as he and Lila worked with Arabians and other breeds. sometimes his subjects were unlikely; for example, he trained 12 white mules to drive for a motion picture and he once broke a buffalo to ride. Pat White and his family first met the sheas in 1960. “in those days, northwest Tucson was all dirt roads without many houses, and we all spent many hours in the saddle,” White recollects. ”After a few months, the shea family decided to return to Canada and file all the paperwork necessary for U.s. citizenship. They stored their belongings at our place and left for home.  A few weeks later our house began to smell really bad. As the smell got worse and worse, we finally traced it to the boxes the sheas had packed in haste. How much haste became clear when we opened one box and discovered an electric skillet still full of gravy.  “in 1961 Gordon, Lila, susan, shelly, and mike returned to Tucson, and Joe-Joe, susan’s pony, came along. stacey, their third daughter, came later. They built an arena, began training and hosted all kinds of gymkhanas, 4-H shows and cowboy polo.  They also participated in reenactments and parades, and trained animals for several movies.  “it was a busy time and we all had lots of fun,” White adds. “my family and i have wonderful memories of those early years.” in 1967, shea moved his family to scottsdale, where he trained for a year at Clay’s Arabians. The next year he made a career move that would put him and his new employer in the national spotlight: he went to work for Daniel C. Gainey at Gainey Arabians. For eight years he managed Gainey Fountainhead Arabians’ minnesota, California and Arizona locations, and trained and showed numerous Gainey Arabians to national honors. mickey Hegg, the scottsdale Arabian Horse show’s former manager, well remembers shea’s Gainey years. “When i think of Gordon’s great moments, i think of him showing Ferzon’s offspring in the Get of sire class at scottsdale. Who could ever forget their sweeping victory, and Gordon’s overwhelming enthusiasm and excitement? He was an inspiration to many people. His love of horses, and of the Arabian horse in particular, will forever be remembered. 


Gordon Shea “His driving horses were always superb, too,” she adds. The most memorable of those was Serinask (*Bask x Serinne, by *Serafix). Shea and a partner purchased him in 1976 as a coming 3-year-old from his breeders, Horace and Betty Gregory. Gordon Shea and Serinask won three u.S. and Canadian national championships in pleasure driving. The stallion sired 280 purebred and Half-Arabian foals and became the nation’s leading performance sire for a time. His offspring led Dr. Paul and Carol Dearth and their sons to an enduring family friendship with the Sheas. “Serinask was the catalyst to our getting to know the Shea family,” Gary Dearth remembers. “He was the center of their universe. In fact, we had a mare booked to Serinask when he died. We were successful with quite a few young Serinask stock. Midnight Jazz, the Half-Arabian park horse, won many u.S. and Canadian national championships, reserve national championships and top tens for us, and we bought the purebred mare SS Sabrina from Gordon and Lila in 1985. In 1992, SS Sabrina became my wife, Karen’s, first national champion. “Gordon was successful in the Arabian horse business for a very long time. He had a terrific eye for a horse, and his speculation on young horses was almost always on the mark. I used to head his driving horses for him at shows; he was a wonderful horseman—and he loved the art of the deal. He went to swap meets; he loved ’em! He was a great salesman, and he loved to talk to people. even in his old age he would come to shows and tell wonderful stories. Over 30 years our families developed a long, wonderful friendship.” The early 1980s also was when trainer Tim Shea got to know Shea. “I started going to Scottsdale every fall, and staying for a month,” he recalls. “I really got to know Gordon, and would go there regularly to look at horses. He always had some young Serinask stock, and they were always good. “everybody liked him! Gordon always had a twinkle in his eye. He was a really happy person. He loved the horses, he loved people, and he made you feel that he thought a lot of you. He was a very positive person, and comfortable to be around. He was a great salesman because he genuinely believed in what he was saying about the product—and he had a good product.” “Gordon was a great guy,” adds Gene La Croix. “He always had lots of enthusiasm and a great love for Arabian horses. He had a good eye for a horse, too; look at Serinask. He selected him, trained and finished him, and showed him to three national performance championships.” Gordon Potts got to know Gordon Shea when he (Potts) was at Lasma Arabians in 1980. “He was a very good horseman,” says

Potts, “and he had a great eye for a horse. I could always go over there and find something I liked. Gordon loved horses and he loved people. It didn’t matter who you were; whether you were a big fish or a small fish in this business, he was always friendly, hospitable, and completely genuine. I bought horses from him, and he bought some from me.” Leo Hansen delivered a moving eulogy at Shea’s memorial service. He too met the Shea family years ago. “We met Gordon when he first came to Gainey’s in the Santa Ynez Valley,” Hansen recalls. “I was still in northern California, working with my dad. In those days, in my humble opinion, Gordon was a star. When I was young, watching Gordon win with the Gainey horses, his sheer joy—his obvious, very genuine, happiness when he won—really got my attention. I wanted part of that! “He was unlike anybody else. I learned so much from him. every time he showed a horse, he went for it. There was never any, ‘well, she was green,’ or ‘it was his first time in the ring, it was hot and the colt didn’t feel good,’ or any of the other old excuses we always hear. Gordon was in there to win. If he didn’t win that day or in that class, he wouldn’t blame it on anything or anybody. He taught me that as a professional, you owe it to yourself, and you certainly owe it to the client, to do the very best you can to win with their horse. No excuses. “Our families had so many bonds, but if it wasn’t for the horse business, none of us would have become what we are today,” continues Hansen. “Susan (Shea) is a huge, huge talent. When she was little Gordon, would put her on anything and she could ride it. He used to take her to the Indian reservation, where he would buy wild horses, bring them home and tell people they were broke. But by the time he sold them, they were broke. He would leave Susan at the reservation overnight and go pick her up the next day, when he picked up the horses. Mrs. Shea (I always respected her too much to call her anything but ‘Mrs. Shea’) would keep the books, keep an eye on the broodmares, do the foaling, and so many things that supported her husband’s efforts. I’m not sure Gordon would have had so much success, had it not been for Lila.” Gordon Shea passed away on May 17, 2011. Survivors include Lila, his wife of 56 years, daughters Susan, Shelley and Stacey, and son Michael. A brother, two sisters and five grandchildren also survive. Daughter Susan, a Scottsdale trainer, continues her father’s national championship tradition.   Funeral services were held on Saturday, May 28, 2011, at Messinger Mortuary at Pinnacle Peak in Scottsdale. In lieu of flowers, it was Shea’s wish that contributions be sent to the Horsemen’s Distress Fund (www.horsemensdistressfund.com) and Horse Help (www.horseshelp.org). n

Precious As Gold

(1984 - 2011)

by Linda White

Everybody who ever met Precious As Gold (*El Shaklan x Autumn In Gold, by Classy McCoy) discovered immediately that she genuinely loved people. Not only was she a sweet-tempered pet; everyone lucky enough to spend time with her marveled at the depth of her interest in humans. She made direct eye contact with whoever was showing her, admiring her or feeding her M&M® candies, her favorite treat. Even at the end of her life, Precious As Gold’s almost preternatural character mesmerized visitors and caregivers alike. People couldn’t take their eyes off her, so engaging were her personality, her exquisite, feminine type and structural integrity. Not surprisingly, all that charm and beauty netted her many show ring honors: 1987 U.S. National Reserve Champion Futurity Filly, 1988 U.S. and Canadian National Top Ten Mare titles, several dozen blues at major shows in Regions 6, 8, 10 and 14, and a 1988 Region 10 Reserve Championship in Mare Halter. The vivid chestnut mare experienced only a few lifetime show ring defeats, and most of those were reserve championships. Former Arabian Horse Times publisher Walter Mishek and his sister, Susan Gehring, bought her dam, Autumn In Gold, in December of 1983 in foal to *El Shaklan. On February 2, 1984, Autumn In Gold delivered a bright chestnut filly with three white stockings, white facial markings, and a white spot on her lower lip. The filly was named Precious As Gold—because she was. “Precious As Gold was exactly what her name indicates,” explains Mishek. “The moment she was born Wayne Thompson, our farm manager, said, ‘She is as precious as gold,’ and that became her name. “I am so happy that I sold Precious As Gold to Dr. Robert Williams and John Brown,” continues Mishek, recollecting that day in September, 1990. “Their incredible breeding choices created her sons Versace and Trussardi. Robert and John cared for her every need, and got to experience her love for them. Precious As Gold was truly a gift from God.” Like so many before them, Port Orange, Fla., breeders Dr. Robert Williams and John Brown found the 6-year-old chestnut mare’s presence and personality irresistible. She lived at Rojo Arabians for the rest of her life, nearly 21 years. 306 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

“We were so fortunate to have the time we spent with her,” John Brown reflects. “People who knew her understand, but it’s hard to covey how really special she was unless you actually were around her. “She gave us so much!” he continues, his voice catching on the words. “Versace was her first foal. He was a gentle, kind stallion—not his mother, but you could see a lot of her personality in him. We took him to U.S. Nationals in 1998 for the futurity, and when people found out he was out of Precious As Gold, they immediately booked mares to him. We sold 145 breedings to him before he ever went into the show ring!” Versace was a 1998 U.S. National Top Ten Futurity Colt. “When her second foal, a filly, was born her uterus prolapsed, so there would be no more Precious As Gold foals … or so we believed. There were no more for a long time, but she continued to ovulate. Although equine reproductive technology had advanced greatly, we had no interest in taking her to a clinic, so our veterinarian devised specialized equipment that allowed him to harvest her oocytes here at the farm. “In 2008 we bred her (oocyte) to Stival (Gazal Al Shaqab x Paloma De Jamaal, by Soho Carol). Trussardi, a chestnut colt, was born on May 2, 2009. He turned 2 years old the day we put Precious down. He looks exactly like his mother. He’s even marked just like her, except that his opposite front leg has the white stocking. It was as if she was saying, ‘I’m leaving you, but here is what I’m leaving you with.’” n

by Andrew K. Steen

Little did Cadet William tweedie imagine, as he walked down the gangplank and set foot on Indian soil, that 92 days later he would nearly die from a bullet wound, and he would be thrust headlong into the hellfire of the bloodiest insurrection the British empire had ever endured. had he died like thousands of other englishmen that perished

in the sepoy Mutiny of 1857-1859, his passing would have deprived us of arguably the finest book ever written about the Arabian horse.

The Arabian Horse, His Country And People

For well over a hundred years, Major-General William Tweedie’s The Arabian Horse, His Country and People has been an unassailable source of information considered by many to be the definitive work on the Bedouins and their desertbred horses. Countless students, scholars and aficionados have consulted and studied his book to augment their knowledge of the breed. Many believe his work to be the most erudite, best-researched and thought-provoking book ever written in its special genre. In his introduction, Tweedie explained why he tackled the daunting task of writing his extraordinary book. “The Author of this volume, when still very young, found himself in the thick of a campaign, which lasted two years. In the harder half of that period, while the first shock of the Sepoy Mutiny and War was being confronted, he was not a mounted officer, but an ensign with a marching regiment. In India this makes little difference, as there, even in British regiments, the infantry subaltern, scarcely less than the cavalry and the staff officer, has a faithful horse as his partner in every duty, except on parade and when the battalion is formed for action. During the mid-day halt, the shadow of the noble animal protected him from the sun’s rays; and cold wet night, when riding round the pickets; and on cold, wet nights he is often fain to thrust his feet into his horse’s armpits for warmth. Impressions stamped upon the mind in this way have all the elements of permanence and the Author, when the episode of the mutiny was over, found himself an Arab as regards his love of horses.”

breeders are familiar with his masterpiece, until now next to nothing has ever been disclosed about Tweedie’s highly-adventurous life or military exploits in India, Abyssinia, Afghanistan and Arabia. Almost everyone who has had the privilege and pleasure of reading the book will likely affirm that it is a remarkable, if not a unique, work. The singular exception would be Lady Wentworth, who declared that “Tweedie was essentially gullible … his ignorance on the subject was profound.” But let’s face it, the envious matron of Crabbet Park habitually disparaged everyone whose opinions differed in the slightest degree with her own. Rather than debate which authority was right or wrong, in this article we will succinctly explore Tweedie’s extraordinary personal saga.

For a treatise of such substantial size (412 pages) and unprecedented detail, it is strange that he disclosed so little information about his own life and his personal involvement with the Arabian horse. Although most serious J u ne 2011 | 309


A Scottish Fairytale

Tweedie is the name of one of the ancient scottish clans. Their motto is “Thol and Think” (“thol” being an old scottish word for ‘suffer’ or ‘endure’). According to scottish tradition, the origin of the name came about when a certain husband who marched away to fight in the Holy Crusades returned years later to discover that his wife was expecting a child. He was understandably perplexed, until his wife explained that she had been accosted by a fairy near the banks of the river Tweed. The gullible husband, who couldn’t have been the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, chose to believe her story on the condition that her son was christened with the surname of Tweedie.

Tweedie’s Family Background

William Tweedie’s grandparents were John (1775-1862) and Janet (née King) Tweedie. For generations the family had been gardeners at eglinton Castle. in 1825, they emigrated (probably for religious motives), along with some 200 other residents of edinburgh, to buenos Aires, where they established the scottish colony of monte Grande. John Tweedie was a botanist who discovered a number of indigenous Argentine medicinal plants that he sent back to england, and which are classified as tweedienas or tweediáceas. Their first-born son, William King Tweedie (18031864), remained in scotland and never saw his parents again. He became the minister of the Tolbooth Kirk (Church) in edinburgh, and in 1843 led the disruptions which culminated with the Free Church’s separation from the established Church in scotland. reverend Tweedie was a very prolific author and pamphleteer whose numerous books include Ruined Cities of the East (1858), History of a Beggar Boy, Rivers and Lakes of the Scriptures (1857), and Eastern Manners and Customs (1870). William King Tweedie married margaret bell (1803-1885), the daughter of Hugh bell of old 310 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

Garphar, straiton and Ayrshire. The couple had five children. The eldest and the protagonist of our story, William, was born on october 31, 1836. His younger brother John (1838-1897) also ended-up in india, where he worked in the bengal Civil service, became Postmaster-General and later joined the bengal Judicial Department. Their sisters were maria meredith, margaret bell and Jessie Anne. Little is known about their childhood.

Subaltern Of The 37th Bengal Infantry

in those days, one of the most promising careers for a young man of modest means was in the east india Company’s Army. Consequently, following his graduation from st. Andrews College of edinburgh, 21-yearold William enlisted as a cadet in the 37th bengal infantry on January 20, 1857. After a two month steamship voyage around the Cape of Good Hope, he arrived in india (probably Calcutta) on march 4, 1857, and was promptly promoted to ensign, the lowest officer’s rank in the british Army. Tweedie arrived in the subcontinent at a most inopportune time. india, which had been ruled since 1757 by the east india Company, was on the verge of a major and extremely violent insurrection which for years had been smoldering just below the surface. At the time, in all of india there were only 41,160 british troops and 5,362 officers, whereas the number of native conscripts (collectively known as “sepoys” of the armies of madras, bengal and bombay) exceeded 311,000. They outnumbered the british more than seven-to-one.

The Sepoy Mutiny

The complex circumstances and events that provoked the sepoy mutiny and the simultaneous civilian uprising were many. The foremost objection amidst sepoys was that they felt their prerogatives and rights had been infringed upon. Promotions were based

on seniority, which, due to the influx of european officers entering the army, made rising through the ranks a very slow process that impeded the Indian soldiers’ advancement into better-paying commissions. Additionally, as the east India Company annexed and overthrew new regions, sepoy units had been obliged to serve and fight in foreign regions such as Persia, Arabia, Crimea and China, far removed from their families and cultures. The civilian rebellion was caused by widespread discontent amidst the disgruntled, disenfranchised landed gentry, many of whom had lost their property and titles due to land reforms imposed by the Company following the annexation of the Oudh region. However, feudal loyalties, taxation, religious motives, and a justice system that was regarded as inherently unfair were among the important grievances that triggered the hostilities.

The Powder-Keg

The first tremors of the bloody mutiny occurred at the Dum-Dum Arsenal near Calcutta, in the spring of 1857, when rumors concerning the cartridges used in the newly-issued Pattern 1853 enfield rifles began

to circulate amidst the troops. To load the rifles’ firing mechanism, the sepoys had to bite a paper gunpower cartridge. These were greased with tallow (beef fat), which was an anathema to Hindus, or lard (pork fat), which was regarded as “haram” (unclean) by Muslims. Consequently, both of India’s two principal religious groups were gravely offended. Following the initial revolts on April 24, 1857, at Meerut and Delhi, violence quickly spread into the Indian society, which had long shared many of the same feelings of hatred and resentment for the Company’s iniquitous rule. The rebellion involved both Moslems and Hindus, and spread into all classes of the civilian society. However, because the insurrection was localized, most of Southern India was not involved in the killing spree, and a number of groups in the war-torn area, including the Gurkhas of nepal, the Pakhtuns and the Sikh religious sects, remained loyal to the British and continued to serve them. Indeed, those military units were primarily responsible for the suppression of the civil disobedience.

Severely Wounded At Benares

A typical incident of the sepoy mutiny occurred at benares on June 4, 1857, when four british soldiers of the 37th regiment were killed and 12 seriously injured by rebel fire. one of them was ensign William Tweedie, who was “severely wounded in the right shoulder.” The following extract from a detailed report written by his commander, Lt. Colonel (later General) James G. neill, was published in the october 16, 1857, edition of the edinburgh Gazette, which frequently printed official military dispatches from india. neill related how, after having ordered the madras Fusiliers regiment to the parade grounds to disarm the sepoys, his british officers were attacked. 312 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

“i had arranged to start with a detachment of the regiment for Cawnpore on the afternoon of the 4th, but that afternoon intelligence was received … that the 17th regiment had broken out into open mutiny and joined by the city people and jail prisoners … on this intelligence reaching benares, brigadier Posonby consulted with me about taking the muskets from the 37th, leaving them with side-arms … We moved up the europeans (civilian militia) and guns towards the 37th, the seikhs advanced upon the other flank of that corps, followed by irregular cavalry. on approaching the bells of arms of the 37th, the sepoys of that corps seized their arms, loaded them, and opened fire upon us, which was immediately returned with considerable

execution by the Artillery and europeans, the Seikh regiment not having yet come up. At this, several of our men fell wounded. The Brigadier (Ponsonby) was on his back on the ground, seemingly struck by a stroke of the sun and declared himself quite unfit for anything and begged that being the next senior officer, I would at once assume command, which I accordingly did. I directed a dash on the lines with the europeans and Seikhs in the line on each flank of the Artillery. I was on the right of our men in the line when an alarm was given. I found the Seikhs had suddenly halted, wavered, and eventually gone about dispersed, having first, however, fired at and tried to shoot their Commanding Officer and Adjutant, and fired upon and wounded several other officers, and fired upon the squadron of Irregular Cavalry drawn up in the rear of them.�

received. The 206 women and children that survived were held hostage, then later hacked to pieces. Their bodies were thrown into a well until it filled to the brim, and the rest of the victims were tossed into the Ganges at the infamous Bibighar Massacre. The acts of revenge committed by British civilian irregulars were no less horrendous. At first, the British appeared powerless to defend themselves against the uprising, but as they recovered their nerve and rallied, Lt. Colonel neill and other officers in Calcutta commenced a counter-campaign of terror by lynching every Indian that they could lay their

Cownpore And The Bibighar Massacre

As the violence spread like wildfire, the sepoy rebels and civilian Badmashes (villains) committed atrocities upon British civilians irrespective of their age or sex. Hundreds of men, women and even young children were slaughtered. During a lull in the fighting, the remnants of the Cownpore (present day Kanpur) garrison were promised safe conduct to evacuate on the Ganges River, but in the early morning of June 27, their 40 boats were fired upon from both banks of the river. Only four men in one of the boats escaped alive, two of whom later died from the wounds they had J u ne 2011 | 313

hands on. When they reached Cownpore and saw the extent of the atrocities, they embarked upon an orgy of bloodshed. Lt. Colonel neill contrived special methods of killing which, depending on whether their victim was a Hindu or moslem, would condemn him eternally. in the house where the british women and children had been slain, rebel prisoners were forced to lick the blood from the walls and floor before they were hanged. others were tied in front of loaded cannons and blown to smithereens. most of these british atrocities were committed during the heat of the moment, without deliberation.

The Siege And Relief Of Lucknow

Upon recovering from his wounds, ensign Tweedie volunteered for service with Her majesty’s 78th Highlanders under the overall command of major General sir Henry Havelock, and took part in the battle of bithur on August 16, 1857. His regiment then advanced toward Lucknow, where they fought in the first relief and subsequent defense of the besieged residency (the seat of government). Throughout their long march, they were frequently 314 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

attacked by rebel forces. nine out of 10 british troops that were involved in the assault of the Charbagh Canal perished. The siege of Lucknow had begun on may 30, 1857. some 850 british officers and soldiers, 153 civilian volunteers, 712 loyal sepoys and 1,280 women and children took refuge in the east india Company’s Government residency. Under the command of sir Henry Lawrence, they fortified several adjacent palaces, mosques and administration buildings, comprising an area of roughly 60 acres within which they would defend themselves against approximately 5,000 indians rebels for the next 87 days. by the time the first relief column arrived on november 27, the original defenders of the residency had been reduced to only 982 fighting personnel. Following the arrival of sir James outram (who in theory was the ranking officer) and sir Henry Havelock’s relief column, in which ensign Tweedie was involved, british forces increased to around 8,000, pitted against approximately 30,000 native combatants. However, the first relief column was

not strong enough to end the siege; it evacuated the surrounded enclave and was forced to remain and fight the insurgents. It was not until 61 days later, on november 18, that a larger army under Commanderin-Chief Sir Colin Campbell (later Lord Clyde) finally managed to break through enemy lines and evacuate the entrapped soldiers and noncombatants. They then abandoned Lucknow.

Topi (1814-1859) and Firoze Shah, as they launched a successful guerilla campaign which lasted more than a year in the narmada, Rajasthan and Khandesi regions of Central India. Tantya Topi was finally captured on April 7, 1859, and executed 11 days later. The last rebels were defeated at Gwalior on June 20, 1858, and shortly afterwards the rebellion was extinguished at last.

British casualties of the two Lucknow reliefs columns numbered 2,500 killed, wounded or missing, including Sir Henry Lawrence, who was fatally wounded by a cannon shell; General James G. neill, who died from musket fire; and Sir Henry Havelock, who succumbed from a sudden attack of dysentery. Of the 2,000 men in Tweedie’s 78th Regiment, 535 were killed, most during the final rush to relieve the beleaguered garrison.

The Sepoy Mutiny forced the British to reorganize the army, and the financial and administration systems of India were likewise restructured. The dissolution of the east India Company occurred in 1858. India was thereafter governed directly by the British government under the new Raj system, which administered the numerous princely states.

Tweedie’s service record indicates that in november of 1857, he received the Indian Mutiny Medal with Clasps (clasps designate a particular battle) and was granted one year’s extra service pay for having taken part in the defense of the Residency at Lucknow.

The Capture Of Tantya Topi

Rising Through The Ranks

On July 21, 1858, Tweedie transferred from the 4th Bengal Infantry to Beatson’s Horse Regiment. eleven months later, he was named Adjutant of the 3rd Cavalry Regiment at Hyderabad. The following month he passed the difficult mandatory examinations in Hindustani and Tantya Topi became regiment interpreter. Within a year, he was promoted to 2nd Assistant Commissioner of the Hyderabad regional government.

Following the relief of Lucknow, from September 19 until november 23, 1857, Tweedie served under General Sir James Outram, whose army advanced through Oudh and attacked the Bailie Guards who were defending their entrenched positions at Alamgagh. Later Tweedie’s division, commanded by Sir Colin Campbell, advanced through Rohilpunud and after a three week engagement recaptured Barrilly on May 7, 1858. In the meantime, ensign Tweedie had been “gazetted” (promoted) to lieutenant on April 30, 1858. From January to March 1859, Tweedie’s unit, under the command of General Michael, participated in the pursuit of the two most famous rebel leaders, Tantia

Twenty-four months later, Tweedie was appointed Assistant Commander at Mooltan in Punjab. On May 20, 1862, he became Adjutant Commander 1st Cavalry Hyderabad Contingent, where he stayed for only 11 months, at which time he was appointed 2nd Assistant Resident of Hyderabad and 1st Assistant General Superintendant of Thagi and Darcy. Three years later, he obtained a “high proficiency” certificate in Persian, and shortly thereafter he was named Magistrate and Judge at Secunderbad. ■

Riding In Style, Lesson Programs

Part I

by Linda White

riding instruction is not mandatory to owning an Arabian horse, but if we plan to ride the horse, lessons really help. some skills we can learn on our own, usually through trial-and-error. We can teach ourselves how to bait a fish hook, ride a bicycle or climb a tree, but those are seldom accomplished without a little bloodshed (our own) and frustration. We could teach ourselves to operate a chain saw or motor vehicle by trial-and-error—but some tasks are better attempted under an instructor’s watchful eye. riding a horse falls into that category. Horses present a sensitive, intelligent, living challenge. Absorbing all the information the late margaret

We can avail ourselves of their expertise in every riding style known to modern man, including saddle or f lat seat; forward (hunt) seat; stock seat, which practical western and working western

riders find most useful; and the balanced seat dressage riders prefer. There is even more good news. A steadily growing number of specialists teach their more seasoned riders side saddle, reining, cutting, over-fences expertise and driving. Specialists’ résumés and stated goals may differ, but the common denominator is a passionate, single-minded objective: to give their pupils a positive equine experience,

and to foster healthy relationships between them and the Arabian horses they ride. Some lesson programs reach outward to attract non-horse people. Other programs reach inward to touch the minds, hearts and souls of everyone they encounter, and some programs seem to be a happy confluence of both. Thirty years ago, Liz Hulka-Vena and her husband, Michael, invested in residential property in the Chicago suburbs that had once been the Hulka family’s farm. The couple developed the property, setting aside 10 acres to

build Arabian Knights Farm. The horsemanship program Liz launched there 15 years later flourished, and today the Arabian Knights lesson program has six instructors. Each of them brings the lesson program a different specialty and approach. “We offer private riding lessons and horsemanship programs for people of all ages who have no horse experience,” says Hulka-Vena. “My parents had Arabian

horses, so I grew up with them. Arabians have always been my favorite breed.” “We also have an academy program for more advanced riders who want to compete at local shows,” says Judy Gosewisch, the farm’s promotional and marketing director. “Our horsemanship program is multi-faceted. We have beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, with two weeks of instruction for riders at each level, with classes three days a week.” Because Arabian Knights Farm is landlocked by the village’s public parks system, requests

qualities. Trisha Dingle manages the program and trains the farm’s young halter and performance prospects.

“safety is our first priority,” adds her boss. “because this property is surrounded by the parks district, we have the perfect opportunity to show our beautiful Arabians to nonhorse people. We have Girl scout and boy scout badge programs and other fun activities for local youngsters. We also give farm tours to area schools, providing those kids with what is often their first hands-on contact with a live horse.

“We have a small lesson program here, and use purebred Arabians and Half-Arabians as school horses for the majority of our students,” she says. “our program, the Turkey Creek riding Academy (TrAC), is one way we give back to the community and introduce new riders to the Arabian breed.” many TrAC students go on to lease or purchase horses from Whitehaven, and continue at the farm as interns and working students.

“We offer a community service program through our county’s probation office. The program is most offenders’ first exposure to horses, and shows them glimpses of a different world. We give middle school students in this highly populated area ‘A Day at the Farm.’ school students earn the privilege of visiting our Arabian horses, petting zoo and aviary, which gives them a greater appreciation of the horses and other animals they meet here and elsewhere. our school horses, currently numbering 10, are all purebred Arabians and Half-Arabians. “A high school art teacher brought his class out to sketch the horses,” she continues. “one man came here and bought a horse because he saw our Arabians in a Dillard’s catalog. We had allowed the store to photograph them as an appealing background interest for the fashion models featured in their catalog.” HulkaVena smiles. “A boy who had really enjoyed ‘A Day at the Farm’ came up to me as his group was leaving. He said solemnly, ‘This has been the best day of my whole life!’” Longtime straight egyptian breeders and Pyramid society supporters David and martha Lucas have experienced many “best days” at their historic Whitehaven Plantation in bishopville, s.C. The Lucases are widely respected and admired for their character and generosity, and Whitehaven’s lesson program reflects those

Dingle, a lifelong horsewoman, has trained and shown horses successfully in halter, western pleasure, dressage, native costume and various sport horse classes. A compassionate nature persuades her to share what she has learned, along with the hands-on expertise that ref lects a lifetime with horses. Horses and humans, alike, benefit from her skills and easy-toabsorb teaching style. she also passes on her wisdom and experience in three-day eventing and second level dressage to those students and clients who show an inclination toward those disciplines. Dingle is profoundly committed to teaching children and adults everything they hope to learn about horsemanship and horses, particularly Arabian horses. Clearly, this lesson program is one that reaches outward and inward.

“We make every effort to pass on our love for the Arabian breed to our client families,” she adds. “Five Casperey Stables students, with five of our horses, just participated in an event promoting the Arabian breed. Those riders will join other Gold Coast Arabian Association members taking part in a new movie about Arabians that is being filmed at the Wellington International Equestrian Center. “We love to show off our beautiful, friendly, athletic, wonderful Arabians whenever we can,” she continues. The stable’s unusually diversified lesson program has wide appeal, and not only to horse people. The impressive recitation also draws non-horse people who may not understand equestrian jargon or have the first idea about horsemanship, but have seen ads and photos featuring the disciplines on Casperey’s list. Or perhaps they are simply responding to the colorful moments involving horses in televised races, rodeos, Olympic events and films like National Velvet, Seabiscuit and True Grit. Casperey is there to provide the skills they need to pursue their goals.

“Welcome!” invites the Casperey Stables website. “We have been helping new riders discover the joys of riding since 1982!” So they have. This Loxahatchee, Fla., stable offers the skills and experiences that attract riders at every level. They can become accomplished in everything from basic riding and horse care to jumping, dressage, gymkhana (games on horseback), and barrel racing. “You’ll soon be riding as never before!” the website continues. “You can also enjoy relaxed Sunday rides and barbeques at Casperey Stables.” “Most of our lesson and camp horses are Arabians and Half-Arabian crosses,” says the facility’s Leslie Cooper. “We train and show mostly in Region 12, with trips to Youth Nationals every couple of years. Our horses and students compete in the saddle seat, stock seat, hunt seat, dressage and sport horse divisions. We also teach them to ride hunters and jumpers, should they so desire. We even have a reining horse!

Joanne Fox is director/instructor of Empress Arabians’ “Learn To Ride” lesson program. This seasoned, nationalwinning Arabian horse professional brings a wealth of talent and knowledge to any program. Everyone who knows her or has seen her work greatly respects her unusual ability to educate human and equine youngsters equally well. “Empress Arabians’ “Learn To Ride” program uses Arabian and Half-Arabian lesson horses,” she says. “That kind of positive exposure to well-trained, well-tempered Arabian horses benefits both horses and humans.” And when Joanne Fox trains a young, often untutored Arabian or Half-Arabian, it invariably emerges as a well-trained, obedient, well-tempered citizen. Arabian enthusiasts have only one chance to make a positive first impression. The opportunity for newcomers to have that initial special experience is invaluable, as are the breed representatives who provide it. Lesson programs and the instructors who teach the lessons sometimes change lives—their students’ and their own. Watch for “Riding In Style, Part II” in Arabian Horse Times’ July 2011 issue. n

Transporting Horses In The Heat by Heather smith Thomas When traveling with horses in hot weather, check the trailer vents and windows to be sure they open properly and are in good repair. A light colored trailer will accumulate less heat than a dark colored one; light colors reflect sunlight and heat, whereas dark colors absorb it.

the heat is extreme, put ice blocks and wet wood shavings on the floor of your trailer, or pull into a gas station periodically and hose the horses down with water to help keep them cool. Plan your trip so you’ll never go more than 500 miles a day. Depending on the horses, you may need several rest stops—unloading them each time and allowing them to walk. some horses do fine in a comfortable trailer all day, but others do better if allowed a few stops where they can get out and stretch their legs. some will not urinate in a trailer; they need to get out periodically so they can relax and urinate. others will urinate in the trailer, but only if it is stopped. be sure to know the horses you are hauling.

if your horses are fussy about strange water, take water from home so that when you offer them water along the way they will drink. many horsemen prepare horses ahead of time for strange water by adding a taste to disguise other tastes. You don’t want your horses to quit drinking on a long trip or at a competition. some people add a little Kool-Aid®, Coke®, or molasses to flavor the water and make it all taste the same; some use a teaspoonful of apple cider vinegar or a few drops of if a trip takes more than a day, plan for a place to unload wintergreen. it’s easier to take a small bottle of vinegar the horses. if you must leave the horses in the trailer or wintergreen on your trip than gallons and gallons of when you stop to sleep, open all vents and windows. water.

Horses eating hay rather than grain will drink more water. In hot weather you want to keep them drinking. Dehydration can occur when horses are traveling, and the lack of water can interfere with proper gut motility. Decreased gut movement due to a lack of physical activity compounds this problem.

Horses will stop eating and drinking if they become nervous or stressed. If horses are trailered in the heat and losing fluid through sweating, this loss (compounded with the physical tension of constantly balancing himself) can lead to severe dehydration. Lack of fluid in the gut can

lead to impaction, and low fluid levels in the body may cause muscles to tie up or cramp. If horses won’t drink while in the trailer, unload them periodically and encourage them to drink.

When you unload the horses, walk them around to limber them up. If there is grass available, let the horses graze. This is a good way to check their appetite and allow them to lower their heads so that any accumulated mucous can drain out of their upper respiratory passages. Green grass also contains more moisture than hay, and this will help keep the horses from becoming dehydrated. n J u ne 2011 | 321
