When you think of the Arabian horse, you think of its beauty and versatility. You may also think of your love for this incredible creature. It is for this reason—for this love we share—that I find it hard to fathom the depth of turmoil we seem to face in our community. Can we not unite together and do what is best for the Arabian horse breed? We see the number of registrations dwindle every year, and what do we do about it? We bicker amongst ourselves and let other equine breeds surpass us in all areas by leaps and bounds. In the 1980s, I was a little girl who had big dreams and aspirations for the Arabian horse. Compared to now, everything was a fantasy back then and we did a great job of sustaining that fantasy. In fact, it was quite simple to do so because of our basic and genuine love for the Arabian horse. Now, I understand that everyone’s love for the Arabian horse is of different degrees and capacities, but I can say with confidence that most of us do care about the breed and its future. Keeping that in mind, I want to state that it is a very important time for our Arabian Horse Association, and we have a convention in November that will have a great deal of influence over our future. It is time, I believe, that those of us in the Arabian horse community share our concerns with the delegates attending the convention on our behalf and try to bring back a little bit of the fantasy. Remember, you do have rights in this Arabian horse community. You have a right to complain, and you also have the right to act. Exercise your rights for the betterment of our breed. Get involved in the decisions being made at the convention; contact your delegate today and let him or her know how you feel about the direction our community is heading. I implore everyone to get involved in our Arabian horse community. Unite together and let your voice be heard. Stop complaining and step up. Let us not spend another year identifying what is wrong with our breed; let us do something about it. I think, at the very least, we owe it to the Arabian horses that fill our hearts each and every day with such peace and love.

History books are filled with stories about the roaring 1920’s and how life was carefree and the times were filled with parties and scandal. This is a story about a man named Johnny Star. Johnny was a very well known and respected businessman in the area. It seemed like just about every business venture Johnny touched turned to gold. He was pulling in money hand over fist, which earned him the nickname “Golden Johnny”. The cops were suspicious, however; something ‘fishy’ had to be going on. Nobody has that much luck and there had been a string of mysterious bank robberies in the area and a lot of talk of money laundering, illegal gambling, and boot-legging—and it all pointed to “Golden Johnny” Star. The cops actually were looking more at Johnny’s girlfriend— Rita. She was known as “Diamond Rita” to everyone in town because she had a weakness for the shiny stuff. She liked her diamonds and she liked ‘em big. Johnny made sure she stayed happy by buying her whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted it. The cops had a sneaking suspicion that it was actually Rita that was the mastermind behind most of the heists. They believed she was the one planning out the events in extreme detail, making sure every base was cleanly covered and all actions were completed on time so nothing could ever be traced back to either Johnny or her. Golden Johnny and Diamond Rita made quite a pair. They looked unassuming and friendly enough, but they were both the dirtiest, most cold blooded players in the game. They became even more powerful when they teamed up with the notorious Malloys. “Lucky” Lonnie Malloy was married to the beautiful Candy Malloy. Lonnie traveled a lot looking for new ‘business’ prospects for Golden Johnny Star. He was quite a risk taker, and more than one time cheated lady luck, escaping with his life, thus the nickname “Lucky”. Lucky Lonnie was quickly known around the country as Golden Johnny’s right hand man. Candy kept closer to home and helped Rita take care of the Star

Boarding House. It was rumored that the Star Boarding House doubled as a speakeasy at night and there were lots of illegal activities going on inside, but nothing could ever be proven. Candy was in charge of the books and aptly was nicknamed, “Stats”. All the money ran through Candy. The cops kept a very close eye on her as well, and that wasn’t very hard because Candy was a looker. She had the sweetest face and most pretty eyes a man had ever seen, but she was as ruthless as they come. It was rumored that Candy killed a man with her bare hands just because he messed with her money bags. There were a few other players in this game that kept close company with Golden Johnny Star, Diamond Rita, Lucky Lonnie, and Candy “Stats” Malloy. Whenever something needed “taken care of ” they’d call on Mikey, “The Bruiser.” Mikey was married to Rosie. She used to be a singer in Vegas, but Mikey swept her off her feet and pulled her into his life of crime. Along with that unconventional couple, there was a gal named Trixie that added a whole new dimension to this band of monsters. Trixie doubled as a humble mother of two during the day but could out-shoot, out-drink, and outgamble even Dillinger himself. She was one scary broad. Rita and Johnny called on Trixie when they needed a mole to go in undercover or if they needed to quickly cover their tracks with the press. The final couple in this group of hoodlums were known as “The Cleaners.” Nobody ever knew their real names. It was said that when a body needed to be taken care of or if someone needed to ‘disappear,’ “The Cleaners” were called. It was rumored that this couple lived out west and owned a lot of land where bodies could conveniently “disappear.” The cops had leads a few times, but all came up empty. They thought at one time this couple might be ex-farmers who had a lot of connections, but they never did pin anything down. Together, this infamous band of masterminds were known as The Golden Johnny Star Gang. Over time that was abbreviated for the history books to “The Gold Star Gang.” OCTOBER 20 09 | 29


Cover Story

Legacy Of Fame and Haras La Catalina Celebrating 43 Years Of Breeding Excellence by Coleen Scott Pelham’s foray into Arabian horses and this entire new world of friendships began in 1966 when Dr. Bartlome Mitre sold Pelham her first stallion, Najar (Saif x Nabatti). The stallion had been champion at the prestigious international Palermo Arabian Horse Show the year prior. Along with Najar, she bought four mares that would be the cornerstone of her Arabian breeding operation: “In December, I will celebrate my Nafsa (Nehas x Alef ), Sugarhob 43rd year of breeding Arabian (Nehas x Trabag), Dardat (Dijil x horses,” she says. “It is very important Assila), and Shadetali (Silver Sun to breed beautiful horses and to x Amuay). The stage was set for win, but it is most important to what would become one of the make friends. I so appreciate all the Legacy Of Fame world’s most respected and successful people who have been with me on breeding programs. Gina added to her stock with horses from this journey through the years, to name a few: Robin and Federico Zichy-Thyssen, the Diaz family and Elias Romero. Michael Arbuckle, Ron and Judy Schmid, David and Terry Anne Boggs, Rinaldo Longuini, Janey and Don Morse, and Fast forward to 2006 and Lady Pelham’s 40th anniversary in everyone else at Midwest. There are also my dear friends in the Arabian horse industry. At the suggestion of her trainer, Argentina, especially Fernando de Santibanes and his three advisor, and longtime friend in Brazil, Rinaldo Longuini, sons; Jorge Concaro and his wife; Federico Zichy-Thyssen; she thought long and hard about what she might do to usher and many others—too many to name. All the good times in the next decade. He told her, “You’re coming up on your we have had—that is what has been most memorable about 40th anniversary of breeding, you need a great new stallion.” breeding Arabian horses,” she says. Longuini had already heard the great Legacy Of Fame (Legacy Of Gold x Fames Elegance C, by Fame VF) was Anyone that has had the good fortune to visit Lady Pelham’s possibly available and thought the handsome U.S. National 75,000-acre estancia, the largest in the province of Buenos Champion Junior Stallion would be an ideal addition to the Aires, knows her commitment to Arabian horses is rivaled Haras La Catalina breeding program. As it turns out, Lady only by her desire to share her enthusiasm for the breed with Pelham, who had been smitten with Legacy Of Fame since others. She graciously shares the ranch, which has been in her seeing him at a Scottsdale presentation, agreed. family for four generations, with dozens of visitors every year. “What is really most important to me are the people I have Lady Pelham has always had something very specific in mind met and the knowledge and fun times we have shared with for the Haras La Catalina breeding program, and Legacy Of each other,” she says. There are international wins, recognition from other breeders, monumental sales, and breathtaking Arabian horses. However, what Lady Georgina Pelham of Haras La Catalina, Buenos Aries, Argentina, really wants to talk about is the friends she has made in the Arabian horse industry.

LEGACY OF FAME Fame fit the bill. “When I started breeding Arabians, I had a picture in my mind of what I was looking for,” she says. “Everyone wants an Arabian with type, quality, movement and great beauty. I want you to be able to see my horses on the horizon and have no doubt in your mind that they are Arabians. When I found out Legacy Of Fame was available, it was a dream come true.” Legacy Of Fame was soon on his way and in just a few short years has become as much of a sensation outside the United States as he was when he was here. At the 2007 Brazilian Nationals, he was named unanimous national champion. He repeated that feat at the Palermo International Arabian Horse Show in Buenos Aires, Argentina, this year, bringing home the Grand Champion Stallion title to Haras La Catalina. In fact, the Palermo show was a record-breaker for Haras La Catalina with the farm’s horses accomplishing something Lady Pelham says no other farm has ever done. Not only did Legacy Of Fame bring home the Grand Champion Stallion title, but Haras La Catalina contenders also brought home four other major titles—Reserve Grand Champion Stallion with Caliber H (Magnum Psyche x Shahnas Julle H), Grand Champion Mare with LC Angel Lace (Magnum Chall HVP x Bey Angel TGS), Reserve Grand Champion Mare with Lady Cathleen (Versace x Maisa El Mars) and Reserve Junior Champion Filly with the Legacy Of Fame filly, LC Wisteria (x LC Cadina). While Legacy Of Fame continues to do his part to earn a name for both himself and Haras La Catalina, it is his offspring that are carrying

the torch forward. Besides the win by LC Wisteria at Palermo, Sweet Caroline LL (x Carolina OA) was named National Champion of Dubai and Legacys Sofia (x Yunique) was named an European halter champion. His progeny are making headlines in the United States as well. “Without a doubt, Legacy Of Fame will be one of the most outstanding sires of our time,” state David Boggs and Travis Rice of Midwest Arabians, Rogers, Minn. “His babies, from North America, to South America, to Brazil, to the United States to the Middle East, have proven to be superior in both the show ring and the breeding barn. Legacy Of Fame is one of the greatest. That he is owned by one of the most knowledgeable, successful and dedicated breeders in the world is fortunate,” they say. What does the future hold for Legacy Of Fame, Lady Pelham and Haras La Catalina? They will continue building a legacy—one that will be revered by generations of Arabian horse enthusiasts around the world for centuries to come. The Arabians of Haras La Catalina will not only be such that they can be identified on the horizon, as Lady Pelham strives for, but they will also be the type of horses people fall in love with on a personal level. “I want my Arabians to have such character that they befriend you, that they run from their playmates to you and rest their heads on your shoulders. To achieve that is to achieve something very special.” ■

by Mary Kirkman With Rinaldo Longuini’s reputation as one of Brazil’s most successful trainers and his considerable achievements internationally, it would be natural to assume that he grew up around horses—that his equine background extends to his childhood and informs his work. In fact, his success is due to his own natural talent, the tutelage of a few accomplished horsemen during the critical start-up of his career, and the good fortune of beginning at Haras Capim Fino, where owner Polé Levy is known for offering opportunities to rising young stars. Longuini was 20 when he first visited Haras Capim Fino in December, 1986. A native of Jaú, about 190 miles northwest of São Paulo, he grew up on a dairy farm and attended college, but confesses that school was not a passion. At the time, he was playing a lot of soccer with his friends and working in the shoe manufacturing industry; it was not until he visited his thenbrother-in-law, trainer Zeze Rodrigues, at Haras Capim Fino that he was introduced to horses. Longuini was intrigued by what he saw, and a week later accepted an entry-level job at the influential Arabian operation. “I didn’t know anything about horses; I had to figure out which halters to use,” he recalls. But the pastoral atmosphere was not unfamiliar to him. “I grew up like this. I have farming 40 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

in my blood.” In the beginning, he mucked stalls, cared for broodmares—did whatever needed to be done—and drove the horse van that took the show string to horse shows. “I liked the competition, the people, the movement, the sales, everything,” he says, “and Polé gave me a chance to learn.” Guided by Rodrigues, he absorbed the basics of schooling horses, and graduated to preparing many of the Haras Capim Fino horses for the ring. It was 1987; that year, he reached two milestones—he married Adriana Cristina Defende and he showed his first horses for Haras Capim Fino. So many Arabians and Half-Arabians were in training there for owner Polé Levy and his clients that Levy allowed Longuini to compete with his personal string. It was not long before Longuini showed client horses as well; for several years, he was part of a team that routinely brought home the highest ribbons at the Brazilian Nationals. It was inevitable that he would eventually seek new challenges, however, and in 1994, with Levy’s blessing and encouragement, he became the trainer and handler for Paulo Machado’s Hafati. At the Brazilian Nationals that year, American Bob Locke observed Longuini working his new show stars, and commented on the trainer’s


talent to Midwest’s David Boggs. Boggs made it a point to check out Longuini’s handling of the Hafati horses, and was so impressed that he invited Rinaldo to the United States to assist with Midwest’s show string at the 1995 Scottsdale Show. The friendship—and business relationship—that began that winter between Boggs and Longuini has endured through the years. “David is like my family to me,” Longuini says simply. Rinaldo Longuini remained at Hafati for three years, adding to his record by exhibiting such standouts as FS Mystique Lady, who opened as 1995 Brazilian National Champion Mare and Gold Champion Filly, and later would go on to add the U.S. National Reserve Championship in 1999 as well. During that time he also supplemented the Midwest training staff each February in Scottsdale, developing his reputation with American halter enthusiasts. He quickly scaled the heights: In 1997, he presented the lovely Europe El Jamaal, already Brazilian National Champion Filly, to the title of Scottsdale Champion Mare. Then it was time to evolve again, and this time, Longuini moved to Wolf Training Center, owned by Flavia Torres and Dulce Rosa Wolf, in Boituva, in the interior of São Paulo state. His tenure with Wolf was no less productive, as he became even better known. Among his top clients at the time was Lady Georgina Pelham, of Haras La Catalina, who has remained with him through the years, providing a steady supply of successful show candidates. “I was very lucky when she walked into the picture,” he says. “It was 1998, and we were at Punta del Este in Uruguay. She was there on vacation. I remember that David Boggs was judging, and my great friend Pepe Villar was there. Manuel Balarini was supposed to show Pepe’s horse, but he had another client, so he told Pepe to use me. Gina was looking for a trainer at the time, so Pepe, David and Polé Levy introduced me. That was very important for me! She became a great client and friend.”

Lady Gina Pelham returns the high regard. “Without a doubt, Rinaldo is the most wonderful trainer I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” she says. “He and his family are truly great and loyal friends to me and mine. He was the one who made it possible for me to buy Legacy of Fame, the famous stallion—and he has bought the most wonderful mares for me in Brazil. I don’t even see them before I buy them. I love him dearly, and he is honest as the day is long. I would trust him to buy anything for me.” In 2000, Rinaldo had come to another turning point. He arranged to lease the Wolf property and open his own operation. At Longuini Training Center, 40 horses are maintained for some of South America’s top Arabian horse owners. Among those who signed on over the years were Fabio Diniz De Avila, of Haras Vanguarda; Jaime Pinhieros of Haras Vila dos Pinhieros; Luiz Rocco of Haras Clio; Salim Mattar of Haras Sahara; Carlos Roizner, of Uruguay’s Haras Los Palmares; Pedro Amaral, of Haras El Madan; Carlos Menezes, of Haras Stigmatas; Umberto Bonini, of Haras Céu Estrelado; Rodrigo Lorenzi, of Haras Das Paineiras; João Sorvilho, of Haras Vale Formoso; and Jorge Selume, of Haras Santa Marta in Chile.

“Rinaldo R is one of best handlers that I have seen in my life, and he is a very honest person,” says Fabio Diniz. “He has shown my horses for more than 10 years, and is part of the success of Haras h ho Vanguarda.” V Va Longuini has won national championships in Brazil, Argentina, LLo Paraguay, Uruguay, Ecuador and Chile routinely, and annually adds Pa in the United States, Europe and the Middle East as well. ttriumphs tr i That has meant a procession of world class horses—so many that it T Th is hard for Longuini to select just a few to mention. There is Haras L Catalina’s Legacy of Fame, of course. Longuini was instrumental La i Lady Gina Pelham’s selection and purchase of the stallion, and in stood him at the beginning of his career in South America. “And st Magnum Psyche,” he says. “And DA Valentino. There is no question M o those.” of What makes Rinaldo Longuini proudest, however, is that he rarely W loses a client, and when he does, it is usually because someone has lo shifted priorities from showing to breeding or taken a hiatus from sh the business. th At the same time as he was developing his own business, Rinaldo Longuini also represented Midwest Training Centre. That Ri relationship has lasted for 14 years now; since 2005, he has served re as head of Midwest’s halter division. His schedule is packed, as he coordinates show commitments around the world. The Midwest co ccommitment calls for him to direct final preparation and showing of co

the farm’s contenders at major American shows from regional level through the national events. Concurrently, he exhibits Midwest’s international show stars, all the while training and showing for his private clients on a similarly-international basis.

“Rinaldo is an inspiration,” says David Boggs. “He loves what he does, and he wears it on his face and in his character every day for all to see. He has a soft feel, and a God-given sense of timing with training his horses that leads many onlookers to ask if maybe ‘horse whisperer’ would be a good term to use in describing him. As a human being, he is jovial, comical and full of life in his walk through these years of fatherhood and family man of Christian faith. “Rinaldo lives in Brazil, but visits us here at Midwest often,” he continues. “We always look forward to his arrival back to Midwest as if it was the very first one (which was more than 20 years ago now). Two words to describe him well to me would be partner and friend.” From his vantage point on the global Arabian scene, Rinaldo Longuini studies halter practices in a variety of venues. “I think the Brazilian schooling halter is the same as America; I learn a lot from America,” he says, and acknowledges a comment from an associate who offers that now American trainers learn from him as well. “I have a love for it; I have my technique, I know what I want from the horse.” He agrees with an observation that the Arabian industry in Brazil seems less money-oriented than in the U.S. “I know the inducement for Arabians in America is a little different, maybe more for the money,” he says, “but we don’t ignore that. I have to work hard—but the Brazilian people le like not only to make money, but to enjoy it. At a show, there may be 15 skyboxes. I go into every skybox to have a beer and talk, and people come into my skybox. When someone wins, we are always hugging and congratulating.”

David Boggs and Rinaldo Longuini.

There is also a slight difference in approach to the Arabian business between the two continents. “South American people buy a mare and think about that stallion they will breed her to,” he says. “They like to breed.” With that creativity, he implies, comes less focus on early sales. For Longuini and his clients, the emphasis is not only on breeding, raising and training excellent Arabians, but also enjoying the lifestyle that accompanies the breed. “I love to enjoy my life,” he says. “I come to my barn when I can and just sit.” There is deep pleasure in being with his horses—just as there is pleasure in answering the questions of his childhood friends a little awed by his equine activities. Rinaldo Longuini marvels at how his life has developed since that day 23 years ago when he first visited Haras Capim Fino. Since then, his distinctly non-horse family has acquired a real presence in the world Arabian business. His nephew Joao Rodrigues trained for Bob and Janene Boggs, and now Joao’s brother Alcides is a handler for Midwest. In Longuini’s own immediate circle, his wife Adriana runs

the office of their training center, and daughter Manuele, 22, rides. Son Lucas, now 14, likes to go to horse shows, but enjoys sharing a love of soccer with his father. “For me, I don’t forget my family and my friends,” Rinaldo Longuini says. “And I have a lot of friends in America too. I like to work but I like to have fun too.” The key to his success? “I like to take care of the horses and be honest with my clients,” he reflects. “I am honest about buying, selling and showing. I have a great loyalty.” ■ OCTOBER 20 09 | 43

"ALL YOU HAVE TO DO NOW IS BELIEVE ..." — Russ Vento

My experience as a youth rider has been absolutely incredible. Thank you to all the people that have been a part of my journey and success. It has been an amazing group effort. To the Battaglia Farms Team, I cannot express how grateful I am to have your support. I can honestly say you are the reason for my success in 2009. Thank you for never letting me give up and for climbing every mountain with me. It was quite the ride getting to Youth, and what an amazing ride there. You have truly made my dreams come true and I’m so happy to be part of the Battaglia Farms family. Susan Drescher-Mulzet, if it were not for you, my last year in saddle seat equitation would have been nonexistent. Your kindness is unparalleled. Astro Man rose to the occasion and brought everything together for me. Thank you for the ride of my life, on the horse of a lifetime. Lynn Niles, showing Cowboy these past few years has been so fulfilling, and having the opportunity to ride him at Youth was a dream in itself. Words cannot express my gratitude, or the joy I get just from being around Cowboy. Thank you for all the fun since 2003! Finally, I would like to thank my friends from Liz Langford Arabians, especially Doree Lamm and the Sheehe family. Notice will forever live on in my heart. Love Always ...

2009 YOUTH NATIONALS With a little more than 1,000 horses entered, 130 classes and eight days of showing, it would seem there would be little time for anything other than competition at the Youth National Arabian and Half-Arabian Horse Show, held July 25 through August 1 in Albuquerque, N.M. Yet, there was lots of time for other things—like golf cart decorating, stall decorating, dog races, ice cream socials, Guitar Hero®, and stick-horse racing. There was even time for learning, with the Arabian Professional & Amateur Horseman’s Associationsponsored clinics. There were class highlights for sure. Who could ever forget the freestyle reining exhibition which ended with Skylar Powell and TA Giovanni winning the hotly-contested championship title, ably assisted by Skylar’s mother dressed as a gun-toting, beer-bellied angry father? Who could forget Kate Casey’s unanimous victory aboard Jubilation JF in the Arabian Park JTR 17 & Under class? Or Tess Piotrowski claiming a unanimous title with Sommelier in the Arabian English Pleasure JOTR 14-17 Championship? Or Kirsten McKillop, winning the largest class of the show (79 entries), Arabian Hunter Pleasure JTR 14-17, aboard Kool Enuff ? What about Alexis Muniz, in her senior year of competition, capturing Half-Arabian Saddle Seat Equitation JTR 14-17 and the UPHA Challenge Cup aboard Astro Man? What a show! Yet, what do most people walk away with from Youth Nationals? In our unscientific survey, we found that what is most memorable for exhibitors are the friendships—those forged with special horses, friends, trainers, grooms and families from around the country. Those friendships and special bonds are the things that remain. After the ribbons have been awarded, the trailers packed for home, and the last of the Baskin-Robbins® eaten, what remains are the memories of a group of people that have bonded together because of one thing—the Arabian horse. Youth Nationals Show Commissioner Mickey Hegg describes these as relationships that never end. “You can see the friendships that have endured over the years (17 now completed). Some of the first riders come back to see the show, or even bring their own students. This year we had the pleasure of having last year’s UPHA Challenge Cup winner, Anna Raybourn, return to ‘learner’ judge the UPHA Finals, and then she stayed to assist with the presentation of awards for some other classes. This is what it’s all about, and our aim is to continue to be the best we can be and to foster good relationships for the future with our riders and the Arabian horse.” You’ll find the class champions and their photos listed on subsequent pages, and just a few of the countless stories of support that brought everyone together for the 2009 Youth Nationals.

Peborr—The Senior Competitor If you didn’t know better, looking at Peborr (Ferborr x Pepsi), you’d think he was just one of the many young geldings stalled with Laurie Long Performance Horses—looks great, moves sound, puts his head out for a treat just like any of the others. Upon examining the Youth Nationals program, however, you discover that Peborr had the distinct honor of being the eldest competitor at this year’s show. At 27, the grey superstar was still able to partner with two riders, helping them earn multiple titles. He carried Laurie Long’s client, Amara Spizzirri, to a reserve in the Half-Arabian Reining Seat Equitation JTR 13 & Under Championship and to a top ten in Half-Arabian Western Horsemanship JTR 13 & Under. With Macie Long, he was top ten in both Half-Arabian Hunter Seat Equitation Not to Jump 14-17 and Half-Arabian Western Horsemanship JTR 14-17. For a horse whose original owner wanted to put him down due to a broken jaw, Peborr has proven his worth over and over again. His career began in 1986 in the reining division. Besides earning multiple U.S., Youth National, regional and Scottsdale titles in reining, he has carried many young riders, including both Mistie Long (now Sobral) and Macie Long, to multiple equitation titles. “I think he has 40-something national championship titles,” says Laurie Long. “He’s been a great equitation horse for us. Mistie won at least $50,000 in scholarship money on him.” Not bad for a horse Long says they leased first to be sure they were going to like him, and then made a wise investment based on the gelding’s longevity and the amount of money he was able to win with Mistie. In addition to consistently being a standout in the show ring, Peborr earns his carrots around the barn. “You can put little kids on him—he has taken walk/trot kids around at the shows too. He has just been a great horse to show and to have around. He demonstrates what this breed is all about. He so deserves to be recognized.” Peborr, given his lengthy and successful show record, seems to be a horse who takes his job pretty seriously. That’s not


2009 YOUTH NATIONALS necessarily so, according to Long. “He is constantly nipping at you, being playful. He loves to chase Macie around the pasture. He is just a real character,” she says. “Sometimes when he comes out of a class, he will give a little playful buck.” Although Peborr doesn’t require any special feed or treatment other than an annual hock injection, Long does plan to retire him at the conclusion of this year. “He’s been such a great horse for all of us.” SRC Phoenix Rising Rises to the Occasion

wouldn’t need to be in any more shows with him.” But the young woman rallied. “My mom and trainer kept telling me that Gus was watching and he would never give up. I decided I would do my best and try to win for Gus.” And win she did. Quincy rode SRC Phoenix Rising to the championship in Dressage Training Level JTR 13 & Under, besting 26 other competitors with a score of 72.2. The duo also captured the reserve championship in Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure JTR 13 & Under in a field of 43. She also was High Point Dressage Rider in her age category of the show. Quincy had ridden SRC Phoenix Rising before, so he wasn’t a completely new mount to her. “I ride Phoenix in Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure and equitation and had won two equitation medals on him last year, so I knew I could ride him,” she says. “We just needed to stay calm and ride the dressage test like it was an equitation class. I kept telling Phoenix that Gus was watching us, and he had to be his best. We rode early in the class and would have to wait all day to see the scores from the other riders. So, I relaxed and pretended I was back at home in our training barn and rode the test as relaxed as I could.”

When DA Salvatore (Allionce x Tomorrows Flirt), winner of last year’s largest class (Arabian Hunter Pleasure JTR 14-17), suffered a bout of colic and died unexpectedly at this year’s Youth Nationals just days prior to the show’s start, everyone at Stonehurst Riding Club was devastated. In fact, the entire Arabian community was devastated, as indicated by the outpouring of support via cards, flowers, calls and e-mails. Many junior riders rode this handsome grey gelding, and two were scheduled to compete on him at the 2009 Youth Nationals. With careful examination of the rules, good coaching by Adrienne Hancock-Leong (owner, trainer and instructor at Stonehurst), support from friends and family, and determination from two junior riders, a new mount was selected to ride instead. SRC Phoenix Rising (Loki x Wind Fli), who had been ridden by both competitors in the past, was called upon. Originally scheduled to carry one rider through the show, he would now carry three. But given the circumstances, how would the horse perform with additional classes and riders? How would the riders perform with a different horse on such short notice and in the face of such a fresh loss? Quincy Hernandez, 11, was one of those riders. Her dad, Joe, received the news about DA Salvatore while the family was on a sightseeing excursion, taking some time away from the showgrounds. As Quincy recalls, when her parents told her the news, “I was really sad and couldn’t stop crying. I kept thinking if I could just go home and see Gus in his stall, I

SRC Phoenix Rising wasn’t fi nished with his work. Another of DA Salvatore’s scheduled riders, Katie Pelphrey, needed him for the Dressage Training Level JTR 14-17 Championship and for the Dressage First Level JTR 14-17 Championship. The two were named champions in the training level test out of 48 competitors and reserve champions in the First Level competition, with 31 vying for the title. Pelphrey describes SRC Phoenix Rising as a horse with a huge heart. “He probably has more heart than any horse I’ve ever worked with,” she says. “There may be other horses out there with more talent, but Phoenix never quits trying for you. He’s always been one of my favorites.” Th is amazing 9-year-old gelding also helped Quincy’s younger sister, Lexi, earn the national championship in Half-Arabian Hunter Seat Equitation Not to Jump Walk/ Trot 10 & Under. The two also claimed a top ten title in Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure Walk/Trot 10 & Under. Both Joe Hernandez and Denise Pelphrey, Katie’s mother, point to the entire Stonehurst Riding Club team for the outcome of the group’s Youth Nationals. “We are like one big family, and everyone rallied around the girls,” says Denise. “They leaned on each other.” All agree that DA Salvatore will never be forgotten, and neither will SRC Phoenix Rising.

2009 YOUTH NATIONALS Ninja’s Journey: Making Wishes Come True When Darlene and Steve LaRue’s son Parker was diagnosed with T-cell leukemia on November 14, 2002, the family’s entire world came to a screeching halt. Just 4 and a half at the time, the youngster underwent rigorous radiation and chemotherapy treatments for two and a half years. During that trying time, the Parkers found solace in trail riding. Darlene explains. “Parker couldn’t be around people germs, but horse germs were okay. So, when he was feeling well enough, we would go out as a family to a little trail riding facility and ride.” Learning of Parker’s illness, the local Make-A-Wish Foundation asked to do something for the family. While trips to Disney World, swimming with dolphins, being on the field for special football games, and new four-wheelers were all things in the Foundations’ experience, a wish for a new horse, and an Arabian horse, was not. “This was something totally out of the ordinary for Make-A-Wish. Parker wanted something he could ‘keep forever.’ He told me many times he didn’t just want to go somewhere, because that would be over too quickly.” So the search began. With the help of trainer Jay Bray, of Bray’s Training Center, word was put out over the Internet to Arabian horse lovers around the country—and out of the country. The search was on for an appropriate horse, one quiet enough for a youth rider and of enough quality to be competitive. Jay’s wife, Robin, communicated with dozens of people, gathering videotapes and helping Jay make assessments. One rose to the surface. Amanda Ubell of Dare to Dream Farms in Saskatchewan, Canada, learned of Parker’s wish and believed she had a perfect match in Ninja Kyss (Kyss Me Baloo x Nina Querida). Bray saw the tape and was excited about the possibilities. Just two hurdles remained—meeting the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s budget, which Ubell graciously agreed to do, and transporting the gelding from Canada to Arkansas. Volunteers stepped in and got the gelding as far as Kansas City, Mo., where Bray came to pick him up.

Wanting to be absolutely certain the horse would be a good match for Parker, Steve, Darlene and Jay pretended that Ninja Kyss was simply one of Jay’s new lesson horses. “When we were comfortable that everything Amanda had been telling us about the horse was true, we let Parker start riding him under the ‘umbrella’ that he was Jay’s new lesson horse, and we were probably going to lease him for Parker. We knew it was time to ‘gift’ Ninja when Parker made the statement, ‘Mom, if Mr. Jay sells Ninja, would you please buy him for me?’” With that and Jay’s blessing, the deal was sealed and a very surprised Parker was presented with Ninja Kyss at an official Make-A-Wish Foundation party in early 2007. Since then, the two have been learning to be a team and competing on the class A circuit. In 2009, their show schedule ramped up, with Parker and Ninja Kyss earning three top fives at the Region 9 Championships in Walk/Trot Hunter and Western Pleasure and the in-hand class. Next on their radar was the 2009 Youth Nationals. “As it turns out, Parker is quite competitive and he wants to win the whole shebang,” shares Darlene. “He has always asked about going, but we didn’t feel like he was ready until this year. Plus, it was his last year in walk/trot, so we had to do it,” she says of their decision to travel to Albuquerque. Although the duo didn’t walk away from the show with a big prize, Parker and Ninja did make several cards in their cuts and made one of the finals. “We would not have missed it for the world,” says Darlene. “While we did not come home with a top ten, we came home with the realization that Parker and Ninja are going to make quite a team as they age together.” Darlene credits a lot of people with helping the family on their journey to Youth Nationals—the doctors, Make-AWish Foundation, Dare to Dream Farms and Amanda Ubell, the volunteers that transported Ninja Kyss, and especially trainer Jay Bray. “Without Jay, none of Parker’s and Ninja’s successes would have happened. He is incredibly patient and understanding with Parker. “Ninja has been a gift to our whole family,” she continues. “Because of him we have directed our focus on something fulfi lling that makes Parker very happy.”

The Plane, The Elephant And King Kong … 2009 Youth Nationals Was “On The Loose!” by Christy Egan Driving down the main stabling road that runs east-west at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds in Albuquerque, you couldn’t miss the plane. It looked just exactly like what its


2009 YOUTH NATIONALS designers intended … a small, prop plane down in some exotic jungle. Its portal windows were fi lled with wild animal characters from DreamWorks 2005 feature animated fi lm, Madagascar. It was covered with vines and surrounded by jungle props, and it won the AHA prize for best 2009 Youth National’s stall decoration. It was the fifth win in a row at Youth for Rhonda Karsten Training.

solid, so as to stay in one piece during any New Mexico wind and rain storm. Th is year the plane was purchased after the Youth Nationals by a fi lm set designer living in New Mexico.” “I’ve had my barn in Norco, California for five years,” says Rhonda. “My students are primarily local and we take 15 to 20 riders routinely to shows throughout the season. There they compete in English, Hunter and Western Pleasure, as well as a variety of other classes. We even have a barrel racer in the barn.” Rhonda’s 17-year-old daughter, Sarah also grew up with Arabian horses and competes in California and at the Youth Nationals annually.

“The first year we did a luau theme, then a castle, and that was followed by a mine shaft,” Rhonda says. “I think the train in 2008 really got people’s attention!” Rhonda’s father and mother, Roger and Joanne Hitch, are the team behind both the extraordinary decorations and Rhonda’s eventual decision to become a full-time professional Arabian horse trainer a few years back. “My dad is a plumber and contractor and my mom ran a retirement home before they retired,” Rhonda says. “We’ve had Arabian horses forever. Mom and dad have owned Arabians and encouraged me to ride and compete with horses since I was seven. I rode as an amateur my entire life up until 2002 when I decided to make horses my full time occupation. The designs and the months of hard work put into the stall decorations at Youth are a real testament to my father’s abilities, and reflect the sheer pleasure he derives both from the horses and from creating these horse show ‘works of art.’ The mine shaft design in 2007 included an ore car and provided a place for kids to pan for gold. Last year’s train, an almost life-sized steam engine, included a kid-sized cab with wheels to turn and buttons to push. Enhanced by “found” objects, like toilet paper rolls and dog dishes, the train was a masterpiece admired by everyone and purchased at the end of the Youth Nationals by Gordon Potts. He took it home to The Brass Ring in Texas for his children. “This year’s plane exhibit was created by my dad out on our patio. It’s built in sections so that it can be hauled to the show on a flatbed,” says Rhonda. “On arrival it’s carefully reassembled and then my mom organizes the accompanying decorations. All of dad’s constructions are waterproof and

A “giant” hit during Sunday evening’s 2009 Youth National’s Parade of Regions was the life-sized Region 12 elephant. Also something of a family collaboration, the elephant was the brainchild of Georgia horse trainer Vicki Humphrey. “A few years ago we did a really cool float for the Parade of Regions,” says Vicki. “It was the ‘Wizard of Oz’ and featured a hot air balloon, a wizard, and Dorothy. Since it was the last year at Oklahoma City, we had a sign that read ‘There’s No Place Like Oklahoma City!’ When we heard that the theme for 2009 was ‘On The Loose’ at Youth, we were inspired to come up with something special.” Vicki’s brother David, a Florida architect, provided the plans for an elephant to be built on a golf cart. “My brother said, ‘I’ve been designing these plans for building golf cart floats for parties and parades,’” says Vicki. “I asked him what types of floats and the minute he mentioned ‘elephant’ I started getting excited. I’ve been putting together horseback safaris to Nairobi, Africa for friends and clients over the past few years. In the process I have fallen completely in love with Africa and the animals, so the 2009 theme for Youth Nationals and an elephant float were a perfect match for me this year!” Vicki’s brother David got the ball rolling with a frame, a carved head and other important items. When the group

2009 YOUTH NATIONALS got to Albuquerque, everyone pitched in to help. Trainer Joel Kiesner dropped by to paint the elephant’s head and refine other pachydermatous details. The elephant’s appearance on behalf of Region 12 at the Youth Parade of Regions on Sunday was a show stopper. Ridden by a small, stuffed monkey and equipped with an elephant’s roar, courtesy of a sound system hidden under its chest, the elephant caused jaws to drop and elicited excited comments throughout the stands. “After the parade, we perched the elephant on some hay bales in front of the stalls and left him to charm everyone for the week,” Vicki notes. “Then along came a big windstorm, picked him up and blew him right off the hay bales. Our neighbors said it looked like he was walking down the road. At the end of the road he fell right over the parking attendant lady. He actually sort of swallowed her into his belly area. She was in there yelling ‘help! help!’ Fortunately she wasn’t hurt, though it must have been a very traumatic experience.” Needless to say, the elephant needed an overhaul after his “walk.” His tusks had broken, his ears were cracked and his legs sort of splayed out. The South rose to the occasion and put him back together again. He was, after all, a very important part of Vicki Humphrey’s 2009 Youth stall décor. Following the show and a failed attempt to donate the elephant to the New Mexican Republican Party, Vicki took him home to Georgia, where he now resides comfortably. In addition to his astounding appearance in the parade and even more astonishing walk down the road, the elephant has inspired Region 12 and Vicki Humphrey to be even more creative at Youth. “As soon as we find out what the 2010 Youth National’s theme is we will leap into action,” says Vicki. “The elephant caused so much stir that we now have a bet with another Region about who will produce next year’s best float!” The Cactus Rose Ranch has a beautiful western saloon front set up at the horse shows. It’s a splendid facade that their riders and clients alter with their own creative “touches,” according to the show and the theme. This year though it wasn’t the delightfully decorated saloon front that caught everyone’s attention, it was the 30-foot-tall blue gorilla standing behind the building holding up the farm sign. “As soon as we heard the 2009 Youth National’s theme, we decided that we would be ‘Monkeys on the Loose,” says Cactus Rose Ranch trainer Carolyn McDonald Shino. “Shortly after that, I was driving by a Scottsdale car dealer and saw this great big gorilla balloon in the lot promoting a car sale. It was perfect. We have a client that does promotional hot air balloons. In fact they did the Mostly

Padron balloon a few years ago at the U.S. National show. We got the balloon and they made up the sign. The balloon is easy. It inflates itself in less than a minute. When you want it down, you pull the plug and it deflates just as quickly. With a little help you can fold it and roll it up just like a big sleeping bag. As for the rest of the decorations on the saloon walls and in the barn area, the kids make and install those themselves. We have a party at the barn before the show and everyone helps make decorations.” A respected coach in the Arabian breed for over 20 years, Carolyn notes that the kids thoroughly enjoy the show’s themes each year and comments on its importance to the children. “The kids work so hard to get to Youth Nationals and compete,” she says. “Some of them don’t even win a Top Ten ribbon. The parties, the themes and the special events and gatherings at the show are a great way to send everyone home with special memories.” Cactus Rose always has a full house at the shows. This year at Youth Nationals the group included 26 horses and 16 kids between the ages of 8 and 17. Most were from Arizona, but a few came from California and Utah. Cactus Rose Ranch is located across from Midwest Training Stables in Scottsdale about five minutes from WestWorld, so the group is even larger at that February Scottsdale show. “The Cactus Rose kids are a great team,” Carolyn says. “The older ones help the kids that are new and younger. They share their horses with each other and help their teammates at practice and with support when they’re showing. They take good care of each other. A number of them will be participating in the Youth Judging at the U.S. Nationals this year. They’re representing the AHAA and Susan Shea and I are coaching.” A Friend In Need by Christy Egan Those who compete at the Youth National Championship show come in pursuit of glory and success. Those desires


2009 YOUTH NATIONALS know no limitations of age—neither young nor old. Certainly, the children who compete at the Youth Nationals annually bring with them a variety of experiences, and take home valuable lessons learned about hard work, perseverance, courage, good sportsmanship and sometimes disappointment. Anywhere there are living and breathing creatures, there is beauty, love, partnership, victory, defeat, life and death. It comes, as they say, with the territory, but that doesn’t mean that you have to face the good, or the bad, alone.

their riders, 13-year-old Annie Willett, about the loan of her horse, GSF Ohmy Ghaz. GSF Ohmy Ghaz is an open and an amateur national champion in English and Country English pleasure, and a consistent Top Ten at the Youth, Canadian and U.S. National Championship shows. He was also an 11-year-old and very good-minded. “My mom and my brother rode ‘Ghaz’ before me,” says Annie, “but he’s been mine now completely for the past year. I ride him in Country English pleasure and I’m currently working hard on Show Hack with my coach Jeff Lovejoy at Bob Battaglia’s barn. I’ve been showing horses for four years.” “I couldn’t believe it,” says Lindsey. “There wasn’t much time for me to ride ‘Ohmy Ghaz,’ but he was very similar to Governor—willing to work. Once or twice around the warmup, and I went into the ring. Everybody was on the rail for me in that class, Annie and her family, Bob Battaglia and Russ Vento, my coach Vicki, my mom and the whole barn. He seemed a little slow to me compared to my other horse. Mom and I both thought I’d had a good ride. Then they said I was unanimous Reserve Champion [Saddle Seat Walk/Trot 10 & Under]. There were so many people there cheering for me.”

Ten-year-old Lindsey Farni rides with Vicki Humphrey. This year was her third at the Youth National Show in Albuquerque and she was well prepared. Her horse, Governor Ghazi, a nine-year-old grey gelding, was a show ring veteran. Multiple Top Ten awards and two reserve national championships, one at the Youth Nationals and the other at the Canadian Nationals, had culminated in a lease agreement for Lindsey. Her carefully orchestrated plans involved showing her Half-Arabian, I Take You, in Equitation, English Pleasure and the UPHA, and Governor Ghazi in the Purebred English Pleasure and Equitation. Her plans ended abruptly when Governor Ghazi put his foot through a temporary wall just prior to his scheduled departure for the Youth National Show. “He cut himself badly,” Lindsey sighs. “It swelled and was bleeding. It was so sad. Eventually, we had to put him down.” It must have seemed like the end of the world to Lindsey. Empathetic, Vicki Humphrey brought a 4-year-old mare, Priceless LOA along as a possible mount for Lindsey to show at Youth in the purebred classes, but the mare was very young and an open Country English horse. Lindsey rode her once, but it was obviously not going to work out. Vicki told Lindsey’s story to friends and fellow trainers, Bob Battaglia and Russ Vento. They decided to speak to one of

“If it happened to me, if I lost my horse, I’d want someone else to loan me their horse,” says Annie. “I was really happy for Lindsey. It was fun to see someone else ride my horse too. We knew Vicki Humphrey was a great trainer and Bob said that Lindsey was a good rider. We were all thrilled for her. She did a great job. After the class Lindsey and her family sent us flowers and a nice thank-you card.” Annie Willett rode her horse GSF Ohmy Ghaz to a 2009 Youth National Top Ten in Country English Pleasure JOTR 13 & Under. Would Lindsey consider loaning one of her horses to someone in need in the future? “I had a very good experience,” says Lindsey. “I probably would loan my horse.” Meanwhile, both girls are back into their fall routines, Lindsey in Florida and Annie in Arizona. The 2009 Youth National show for all of its excitement is quickly becoming a memory, albeit an unforgettable one. How is success in life measured for us or our children? Is it a job well done? Is it staying the course when everything around you hints at defeat? Is it roses and ribbons for a few, hardearned minutes in the show ring? Perhaps success is measured in the smile and gratitude of a young stranger, the recipient of a gracious, unexpected gift that will most certainly be remembered, and hopefully passed on in the future to another. Perhaps true success is reflected in an act of true generosity.

2009

Leading Regional Yearling Sweepstakes Sires by Christy Egan halter stallion. He is sired by legendary super sire Magnum Psyche, out of a Russian Arabian mare. Magnum Chall HVP’s big regional winners include this year’s Scottsdale Reserve Champion Junior Colt, El Chall WR (x Major Love Affair, by DS Major Afire), who was also the 2009 Region 1 Champion Yearling Colt, and his full sister, WR Love Affair, the Region 2 Reserve Champion Yearling Filly. Like DA Valentino, two of Magnum Chall HVP’s champions are out of Padrons Psyche daughters: Pschalla (x Sweet Psyrrender), Region 2 DA Valentino Champion Yearling Filly, and (Versace x DA Love) Troubadour PA (x Psyches Secret), Region 7 Champion Yearling Colt. Another is a Padrons Psyche granddaughter, Bint Chall CE (x Mserra, by Psymadre, by Padrons Psyche), the Region 1 Reserve Of the 13 champion and reserve champion 2009 regional Champion Yearling Filly. winners that DA Valentino sired, four were out of Magnum Psyche daughters and two were out of Padrons Magnum Chall’s sire, Magnum Psyche, just down the list Psyche daughters. Valori TRF (x Satin Chall LL), the from his most look-alike son, is the oldest stallion (at 14) on 2009 Region 13 Champion Yearling Filly and 2009 the list and the sire with the greatest number of offspring Scottsdale Junior Champion Filly, is out of a daughter of (1,175). Once again, Magnum Psyche (Padrons Psyche x A Magnum Chall HVP, DA Valentino’s major rival on this Fancy Miracle) has managed to set precedents in 2009. This year’s Leading Regional Sire List. year’s Scottsdale Supreme Champion Stallion, he is in the top five of this Leading Regional Sire listing, was a leading Like DA Valentino, Magnum Chall HVP (Magnum sire at the 2009 Scottsdale Show, and has several sons listed Psyche x Taamara HVP) is a multi-national champion Fall is that time of year when we all take stock of the past 12 months and the implications of their facts, fictions and life lessons. The new Leading Regional Sires List almost always sends an exciting and mixed message. There is much that is open to interpretation. There are the established older sires holding court on the listings, and there are the bright new contenders, their pedigrees filled with the names of current and former leaders. A shining example is the 2009 Leading Sire, DA Valentino (Versace x DA Love). The son of another leading listed sire, the late, great Versace, out of a daughter of the well-represented Padrons Psyche, DA Valentino was bred to take a position at the top of the charts.

DST Arabians’ elegant 6-yearold, Justify (Magnum Psyche x S Justadream), was another of the youngest stallions on this listing. One of his top-winning sons was the 2009 Region 10 Champion Colt, Sttardom (x Afi re Star). Sttardom was also the winner of the 2009 Gold Star Futurity $25,000 Auction Yearling Colts/Geldings ATH.

prominently in these listed sire rankings—the aforementioned Magnum Chall HVP, Justify (x S Justadream), and Ames Charisma (x Ames Mirage). Ranking third in number of regional champions is the great international sire and show horse, Marwan Al Shaqab (Gazal Al Shaqab x Little Liza Fame). Marwan Al Shaqab has been busy worldwide this year. He was the 2009 Qatari National Champion Stallion, the Scottsdale Leading Halter Sire of Purebred Winners, and the sire of the two youngest stallions on Leading Regional Sires List: the 4-year-old QR Marc (x Swete Dreams) and the 5-year-old Marajj (x RGA Kouress).

Looking back over the past months on the Arabian horse show scene, it was a year of turmoil, of Arabian horse competition fi lled with dramatic differences and Magnum Chall HVP striking similarities. The (Magnum Psyche x Taamara HVP) stallions listed here range in age from 4 to 14; from 20 registered off spring to well over 1,000; from those competing with others of very diverse breeding, to those challenging their own sires, Marwan Al Shaqab is the sire of the 2009 Scottsdale sons and grandsons. There is both great energy and great Champion Junior and Region 9 Champion Yearling Colt, quality in this group of breeding horses. Tomorrow Baahir El Marwan (x HB Bessolea).

by Gina Czupka

deep love of horses is an heirloom in the Ames family. Over generations, the family’s passion for horses has blossomed into what we know today as Cedar Ridge Arabians. Dick, Lollie and Lara Ames are not just exhibitors, not just breeders, they are a tangible force in the Arabian community, setting trends and continually raising the bar for the entire industry. Their approach is not to be outspoken and always in pursuit of the spotlight—they set about pursuing their goals with humility and earnest dedication, and it just so happens that their efforts make the spotlight come to them because of the quality horses they turn out, season after season. The beginnings of this enchantment with horses are something of interest to Dick Ames, who went to England to trace his family’s heritage. He found evidence that horses were of great importance to his family, even more than a century ago. “In 1870, my great-grandfather, John Ames, left England to come to America with six purebred Percheron mares,” he says. John Ames and his cargo arrived in New York and, after being quarantined there, set out into the heart of America to establish a new home. He settled in Illinois, where he bought a farm and got his horses settled. That was the first step—the next was returning to England to fetch his wife and children and bring them to America, too. Horses and the farming life (to which horses were at that time essential) led the Ames family on a northward trajectory. “My granddad, George, and his brother, Charlie, took horses to different shows, and they ended up in Mason City, Iowa,” Dick says. “They found that the corn was just as tall in Mason City as it was in Illinois, and the land was much cheaper. So, they talked my great granddad into selling his farm and buying 300 acres in Swaledale, Iowa.” Things went along swimmingly until the Great Depression brought the nation to a standstill. The Ameses lost nearly everything—all that remained was some old farming equipment. George Ames heard about an experimental farm in Farmington, Minn., that was being run by West Publishing (which published The Farmer), and found a way to rent the farm. Young Dick Ames played on that farm, which his grandfather and father worked, and became acquainted with the horses from a young age. He went to his first horse show in 1936, at the Minnesota State Fair, and that event presented a glimpse into his future that might not have been believable at that time. Dick was enchanted with the whole scene—from the dazzle of the show ring to the heated banter in the barns. “I’d sit in that horse barn and hear them talk about the same things they argue about today.”

The family continued on with Percherons, but eventually, they had just two left— full brothers, one of which was named after Dick. The colt’s mother died not long after he was born, and he was bottle-fed, which led to him becoming something of a family member. He roamed free around the farm until the day he started nibbling the paint off a newly-purchased car, after which he moved back into the barn. “The years passed and Dick the Percheron colicked frequently,” Dick Ames says. “When he died, it was as bad as one of the family dying. That was in 1948.” After that, the Ameses stopped raising horses—tractors had become the essential farming tool and the demand for horses dropped. Dick Ames started his own construction business in 1960, and a few years later, horses re-entered his life. “The horses were still in my blood. I didn’t have any, but I wanted one,” he says. He came across a horse magazine and in it he found an ad for a palomino Half-Arabian colt at Jim Gulley’s Jimjac Arabian Farm. “I called him, and I bought the horse over the phone. I didn’t even have a horse trailer.” The trip to pick up the colt from Fort Wayne, Ind., included a scene with a rented U-Haul horse trailer upside down in a median, but he eventually made it back to Minnesota. The Ameses showed the colt, with trainer Bob Powers, at some small shows, and it wasn’t long after that that they started buying some purebred mares. The next logical step, for people with their kind of drive and enthusiasm, was a stallion. “Lollie and I drove all over the country,” Dick says. “And then we went over to Harvey Mueller, in Watertown, Minn., and we bought a dark grey yearling colt that was in a hog crate for $1,500. He was a G-Amigo son out of a Gainey mare—his name was Feramigo.” Lollie sums up what that era meant to their family. “Our whole life, since 1969, has been wrapped around the horses,” she says. “In the early years, all of our sons and daughters played active roles around the farm. They cleaned stalls and fed the horses before they went to school, and after school they fed horses again and brought them in from the pastures. They competed at the Class A and 4-H level, and if you ask any one of them today, they will tell you that they had a great time in those years.” They started taking vacations to Scottsdale, Ariz., to watch the show and take in the sales. “We went to every sale that the LaCroixes had,” Dick says. The Ameses started amassing a collection of fine showing and breeding horses and hired a full-time trainer. Many in the extended Ames family took an interest in the horses, including Dick’s brothers John and Ron, and their children. Lara Ames’ interest was particularly strong, and she racked up win after win as a junior and amateur rider. They rode out the industry’s upheavals in the mid 1980s, only to have a spectacular decade of success in the 1990s. For much of that time, Tom Moore was the head trainer, and Lara began to take on the work of managing Cedar Ridge, which had grown to be one of the premier Arabian farms in the country. Lollie also credits the addition of Brass to their roster with turning the farm into the industry leader it is today.

Brass

(*Bask++ x Tsanar) 1979-2007 Bay Stallion

In regards to Brass, I am proud to have been the recorded breeder. He was one of the most typey, classic Arabian sons of *Bask+. He also had great athleticism and motion and has done an excellent job as a sire. I am currently training a maternal grandson of his, owned by Greg Shafer, which I believe has great potential as both a show horse and a future sire. —Gene LaCroix We were in a partnership with Brass way back when. We got Brass when he was probably 2 years old, and a number of years later, the partnership sold Brass to the Ameses and Cedar Ridge. We just thought the world of that horse. Brass needed a really good home, and Dick and Lollie were the ultimate match for that horse. He brought this tremendous presence with him to their farm and they had the wherewithal to bring that to the forefront of the Arabian business. He found the ultimate home when he moved to Cedar Ridge. There was a perfect marriage between the Ames family and Brass. Not only did he find the perfect home, he found a perfect love. They took supreme care of that horse, and they worshipped the ground he walked on. Brass allowed the Ameses to continue the Bask bloodline with a premier son. Not only did it provide them with the opportunity, the Ameses relished it and did very, very well with it. They were the stewards of that bloodline … they safeguarded it. They had this marvelous opportunity to continue this legacy and they did it with an unparalleled dedication. —Brian Pray Tim and I are proud to own one of the top Brass daughters, Brassmis, purchased through one of the Cedar Ridge auctions. The mare has produced Afire Storrm, national champion in halter; Afires Heir, national champion in junior English and open English; Its All Aboutt Me, national top ten English maturity; Karen Dearth’s mare (top ten amateur); and a Noble Express filly that was top eight at the Buckeye yearling class. She has produced three stallions, two of which are still on the farm. Brassmis has the classic Brass look: extremely well-shaped and high-set neck, balance and great conformation, great shoulder, body and very, very pretty. —Marty Shea

Matoi was an outrageously talented youngster. His natural balance, flexibility, work ethic, and “go forward attitude” were qualities that enabled him to become the national champion park horse at 4 years of age. That’s right, national champion park horse as a 4 year old. Accomplishments like this are only possible for the truly gifted, and Matoi will always have a place in my heart for giving me one of the biggest thrills of my entire career. —Ray LaCroix He was a very smart horse and a very kind horse. He has tremendous heart. I don’t know how many people know this, but he broke his hind leg, and it has several screws in it that were never taken out. He won all of his titles after he broke his leg, which just goes to show how much heart he has. As for him as a sire, I think it goes without saying that he is outstanding. —Mike Whelihan Wow! What can I say? Matoi is a thrill to ride, a thrill to train, and a thrill to watch. I am honored to be a part of his show and breeding career. And I certainly have a love for the mares of our industry, so to continue Matoi’s legacy with his daughter, the outstanding mare Toi Jabaska—guiding her to her first four national championships and seeing her become one of the great mares the Arabian breed has to offer—makes up some of the most cherished moments of my career. I enjoyed being a part of their success and thank the Ames family for those opportunities. I wish them the best in the continuation of these great animals in their breeding program. —Chris Wilson Matoi is not only one of the greatest park horses ever, but more important in my time, he is the sire of great horses such as Toi Jabaska, Toi Store, Toi Slamtastic, Toi Supreme and many other horses that have been truly a pleasure to train and show. His athletic ability, big heart, and great disposition have been passed on to these offspring making them amazing show horses. —Kevin Price

A Noble Cause (IXL Noble Express x Sweet Summer Fire)

I showed MCK Ode To Joy, a Half-Arabian filly by A Noble Cause this year and won the Region 15 Sweepstakes with her. She was the freakiestnecked filly I’ve ever seen. She could put her neck right over her back—she is very cool. It’s nice to see a square moving English horse like A Noble Cause. He’s the type of English horse that our breed needs more of—square moving, fluid and good-minded. —Rob Bick A Noble Cause is one of the most exciting, gifted, young horses we have ever started. It has been a pleasure to watch him go on to become a National Champion. It won’t be long before we see his offspring in the winner’s circle as well. —Shawn and Carmelle Rooker We are excited to have the opportunity to breed our best mares to A Noble Cause. We think he is an exceptionally well-balanced combination of the IXL Noble Express and Afire Bey V line. We bred him to our best outcross mare, PWA Tusea, and the result is a stunning colt, with all the right parts to become a truly great English show horse like his sire and genotype would predict. He is producing a strong hind end, great front motion, and best of all, a kind temperament, all of which are necessary for enduring the rigors of training for the English division. He is clearly an English stallion of choice for us. We are planning to continue to breed him to our mares each year and are very excited to see the results again and again! —Nick and Juliet Carden A Noble Cause is a beautiful horse with a lot of talent. He moves with powerful impulsion and motion behind that carry his great balance. Best of all—you should see his babies, they are beautiful. He is going to be a great sire. —Tom Moore

Regal Basque (La Basque x Gay Gazelle)

When we had him, Regal Basque was national champion in Canada, and he was Scottsdale champion in English. He was just a wonderful, wonderful horse, with lots and lots of go and the desire to work. He had extreme quality and ability. As a breeding stallion, he’s proven himself— the foals that he’s had have turned out pretty great. I think that he had been underused before he went to Cedar Ridge. He was a wonderful horse, and a great horse for Dick. He’s lived up to everything that we ever asked him to do. —Bob Battaglia Second Edition’s Debut She had an amazing intensity about her. She didn’t just put her ears forward, she put them forward hard. She was probably the gamest horse I’ve ever ridden, that’s for sure. I remember Regal Basque being awfully pretty—when he had his ears forward, he had such a pretty expression about him. I think that she got that. Beth Harrison won the amateur English grand championship with her [at National Show Horse Finals] nine times. —Shan Wilson Regal Silhouette She was a very special mare. It was a great relationship. We bought her for Arial Harrington to ride, from Faydelle Schott, who is a very great friend. Faydelle was very fond of this mare, but we were able to purchase her, and we had great fun and success with her. Arial was national champion in Canada and I was national champion in Canada in park, and twice champion in park at Scottsdale. She was my first national champion park horse, which was very exciting for me, because that was one division I hadn’t won. She was a mare that had a tremendous heart and desire. She had so much power and so much forward momentum. She was the kind of horse that when you headed her toward the ring, she sat down and gave you more than you even knew you had. Faydelle actually purchased her back from the Harringtons, and the mare has had several great babies for her. Regal Silhouetter also produced Lady Chatterly, at Empress Arabians, who has been National Show Horse national champion in the five-gaited division numerous times. She was a great show mare and she’s a great producing mare—she’s just a very exciting horse. —John Rannenberg

Ames Jasmine I think a mare that can produce a national champion has greatness. There’s only one a year, and it makes them incredibly special. G Kallora has continually produced great offspring. Ames Jasmine was the longest necked thing I had ever seen. She was very, very extreme—and she knew she was extreme. She was a princess. The word ‘diva’ came to mind with her. I thought she was absolutely amazing. One time I broke her lead in the finals. I didn’t know that we were sitting national champion, but I knew that the way the judges were walking around, that they were looking at her. I couldn’t find anyone to give me a new lead, so I tied the lead around her—well, it broke again. As the steward walked toward her—and if he had called another timeout, we would have been disqualified—I called to him, ‘Don’t touch her!’ The class was still going, I was in the back, and I walked over to her and said, ‘Whoa, baby,’ and she let me catch her. The rest is history! She was a very special horse. —Greg Knowles I had the honor of showing G Kallora’s daughter, Ames Jasmine, to her Scottsdale junior championship. Jasmine had beautiful features but really stood out because of her charisma. G Kallora has beautiful eyes and is very expressive, and she passes that along to her offspring. That Scottsdale junior championship was a huge step in my career and I owe it partially to the great G Kallora. —Andy Sellman

G Kallora (El Ghazi x Kajora)

CARRIEANNE AMES

G Kallora belongs to perhaps the most famous family of Arabian horses on the planet today. Her mother, Kajora, the dam of Gazal Al Shaqab, who in turn is the sire of Marwan Al Shaqab, has undeniably changed the face of Arabian horse breeding forever. G Kallora’s sire, the great El Ghazi, also needs no introduction—he adds his own immortality to the pedigree. Kallora herself was the perfect blend of the two, beautiful and athletic. When one added to the mix what she thought of herself, she became the owner of all the space she occupied; a wonderful mare. She is lucky to be in the Ames collection! —Michael Byatt OCTOBER 20 09 | CEDAR RIDGE • 31

This mare is truly an a Arabian horse owner’s dream.

Her performance career was astounding, and she is doing the same in the breeding barn. In four breeding seasons, this mare has produced 17 foals! She is on a second-to-none adventure for us, reproductively, with foals like Prince Of Ames, Nyte of Temptation+, Toi Money, Mr Ames CRF, and RJ Ames. —Mike Brennan

Toi Jabaska is such a naturally gifted mare that it was possible for her to do her job with extreme ease. Because of this, ‘Princess’ was the epitome of an English pleasure horse. She could go with great motion and balance, but made it look effortless. It was an honor and a great thrill to show her to her national championships in pleasure driving. —Kevin Price Toi Jabaska was a very classy individual in the show ring. I feel very fortunate to have been given the chance to become a part of her legend. Everything came to Toi Jabaska so effortlessly; every hinge folded perfectly, giving her a natural fluidity and consistent motion. Riding her to a National Championship will always be one of my career highlights. She gave me a personal set of standards for measuring athletic giftedness. It’s hard to believe that horses like her exist. A year after I won my National Championship with Toi Jabaska, I had the opportunity to purchase one of her foals, a black filly by Pension, named Toi Money. It still astonishes me how much influence Toi Jabaska demonstrates in this filly. By far, the majority of comments about Toi Money are that “She’s just like Mom.” And they’re right! Her personality, mannerisms, how she trains, the way she looks, how she likes her cavesson in the full bridle, and most importantly the effortlessness you feel while riding her. It’s all Jabaska. I’m very excited to be showing a filly out of such an impressive mare, and especially one who exhibits so much of her mother’s talents. —Teal Dowling

When Lollie brought Alpha Phi home to Cedar Ridge, we were all in awe of her beauty. She looked like a pretty-headed Half-Arabian, but is 100 percent Saddlebred. I believe if she were a Half-Arabian, she would be National champion in halter. Since she’s not, her beauty has been exposed through her wonderful foals. One that was a part of my life was Smarty Ames. The Ameses allowed me to show him for them at the U.S. Nationals as a yearling, where he was National Champion Half-Arabian Yearling Gelding. He has been national champion several times since in halter and is now being shown in country English pleasure, a division he also excels in. Alpha Phi is truly a treasure—good find, Lollie! —Andy Sellman

Auctions Cedar Ridge auctions have traditionally set the benchmark for top quality performance horses. It is amazing to see them, first on their sale stage, and then wearing roses in the fall. In addition to that, the inclusion of very special breeding individuals, the likes of which are not normally offered for sale, has given many people a golden opportunity to “start at the top.” As for the Ames family, they are very special people and we are honored to have them in the Arabian breed. —David Boggs Cedar Ridge has always been a leader, and very innovative. They put on a great auction and it was at a great time of the year. It was an excellent place to sell as well as buy great show horses. —Jim Stachowski I thoroughly support the Ames family in their endeavor to sell high-quality horses at auction. It has taken a lot of courage and money to sponsor and manage sales of the caliber of those Cedar Ridge has hosted. I’ve always believed the prices and values on the top end should be set by public demand, and these prices in turn would help the valuation of the middle and lower markets. I’ve watched over the years as Lara has taken on the management of Cedar Ridge auctions and I am really proud of her. She does a great job. All of us, who breed and desire to sell high quality Arabian and Half-Arabian horses, need to support the Cedar Ridge Sales as both consignors and buyers. Its now the best show in town! —Gene LaCroix I think the Cedar Ridge auctions have been wonderful— I’ve enjoyed the heck out of them and they are good for the industry. If they have a sale, I’ll put my horses in it. At this point in time, it’s really good to get people together. It gets people talking and it gets them thinking about doing new things. I think that the efforts that the Ameses and Cedar Ridge put into the auctions are great—my hat’s off to them for what they’ve done for the industry. I hope that they can keep doing it. The more we can do to spur interest, which it will, and get people thinking about buying, the better. Even if I didn’t have horses in the sale, I would want to be there and be a part of it. It gets a lot of nice people together, and it’s just a lot of fun. —Irwin Schimmel

My experience with the Cedar Ridge auctions was very positive. I bought two horses and sold one over three succeeding events and I felt that I benefited on both the buy and sale side. In addition to having a good experience buying and selling, I enjoyed the presentation of horses at both the pre-sale and the auction itself. I find it great fun to get together with friends and see good horses— and Cedar Ridge certainly showed us some good horses. I also thought the auction served the Arabian community. It gave us all a chance to see the various horses and see their true value at that particular time. The auctions were also very well organized and well run. I think an auction such as this can work effectively only if the participants know that there is integrity behind it. With the Ames family behind the auctions, I felt we had that in droves! —Mickey Womble

Cedar Ridge sales are not just sales—they are events. The horses at their auctions are of the highest quality, and the atmosphere is always electrifying. In addition, the Cedar Ridge auctions are a great boon to our Arabian horse community, and the Ames family should be commended. —Barbara Chur

Lesson Program The lesson program was started by Dr. Kenneth Price in 2003. We have about 60 riders that ride every week. They ride hunt seat and saddle seat, and the ages range from 7-year-olds to adults. All of our horses are retired show horses, all Arabians and Half-Arabians, and they all have temperaments that are great for teaching—they’re patient and kind. I try to keep the lesson program fresh by bringing other horses in, so that there are different horses to ride, which makes a more well-rounded rider. We have fun shows in the spring and in the fall, and we use those to motivate the riders. They have a goal to work toward, whether they want to compete in bigger shows or even if that is all the further they want to go. It gives them a taste of showing Arabians. We’ve had riders move into national competition and win national top tens and championships already. The program has been able to maintain its numbers, and all of that has been through word of mouth. —Heather Linnenbringer, Cedar Ridge Riding Club Director

My daughter Laura and I have been in the lesson program for five years, and if you ask me, I think the lesson program is the future of the Arabian industry. We will always continue to take lessons and be a part of that program because it’s so well run, and because of the camaraderie between the kids and the parents. I think it’s pretty cool for a mother and daughter to share the same passion, and we have a closeness and special relationship because of the horses. Heather is phenomenal, and they do so many things, from monthly meetings to outings. It’s a great little community—there’s a lot of mentoring that goes on. When Dick and Lollie are at the shows, when some of those kids are showing at 8 in the morning, they’re there. Even if the kids don’t have good rides, they’ll say, ‘That was good.’ They want everybody to have a good time and love the horses like they do—it’s amazing what they contribute to the organization. —Janice Morton

The Future The Ameses believe that the Cedar Ridge breeding program that started with Feramigo is still one of the greatest tools that they have to contribute to the well-being of the breed. “Our main objective right now …” Dick says pensively, before continuing, “our industry is dying. Someone has to breed these horses. This year I think we had 39 foals. We’re breeding them to our stallions and outside stallions that are good horses, and hopefully we can add something that is positive.” The efforts that the Ameses have made over the years are coming together in unique and exciting ways today, and giving even more hope for the future. Among their stallion roster are horses like Mr. Ames and Ames Celebration, who combine the bloodlines of Brass with those of Matoi, who is himself one of the farm’s marquee breeding horses. The ability to expand on their mares’ breeding potential has allowed Cedar Ridge to breed more foals with their mares that have reached legendary status, like Toi Jabaska and Ames Mirage. As these young ambassadors of the Cedar Ridge program make their mark on the show ring, they reinforce the idea that true, decades-long dedication to the Arabian horse can result not only in an ever-improving line of horses, but in a life enriched by the experience.

Will We Have Halter In Two Years? Part V

WILL WE HAVE HAALTER IN TWO YEARS?

Over the past five months that Arabian Horse Times has conducted its informal survey of opinion about the health and welfare of the halter division, a growing list of breeders, owners, trainers and exhibitors have responded. One trend in comments is emerging as inescapable: Thoughts may be varied as to the value of the new scoring system, but there is concern on the part of everyone about the future of the breed as a whole. There is also recognition that the challenges facing the Arabian industry are not limited to just this breed; every business that requires leisure dollars is grappling with the same issues. The real question is, then, is how does the Arabian industry attract its share of society’s recreational funding? How do Arabian enthusiasts communicate the fun and reward of involvement in their breed to the general public? In that light, the question in our examination of the halter ring becomes, what role does this signature Arabian class play in the future of the breed, and how can that role be maximized? This month we cross the country with thoughts from Florida to Arizona, speaking with a selection of trainers and one breeder/owner/exhibitor, all with long history in the Arabian horse breed in this country.

WILL WE HAVE HALTER IN TWO YEARS?

ROXANN HART Rohara Arabians Orange Lake, Fla. Roxann Hart has been in Arabians since her childhood in the 1950s, and is known for producing both halter and performance horses at her Florida farm. For many years, her husband, Karl, served as Region 12 director at AHA, so her perspective is uniquely faceted by her exposure to many different aspects of the industry. She is concerned about the future of the halter division, and therefore the Arabian breed as a whole. Is the halter division dwindling? Yes, she says, but not in the amateur ranks, a fact worth noting. “I think one of the reasons you’re seeing such growth in these amateur classes at Scottsdale, the Iowa Gold Star and the Minnesota Fall Fest is that people truly think they have a chance. True, their horses are being trained professionally, but they feel they have a chance in the show ring. You just have to open your eyes to see where the most growth is in our industry.”

income from judging, not business transactions arising from their employment. “My husband has wanted a professional judging corps for 20 years,” Hart says, and sketches an outline of qualified candidates, essentially trainers who could retire to a second career after handson horse management. The program could be run like the one for umpires in baseball, where the individuals are well-paid for their work and are required to follow strict rules of integrity. “The way we’re doing it now, we’re dipping into the company ink,” she cautions, “and I feel it’s time to stop because it is hurting our breed.” All that said, it might be fair to assume that she supports the new scoring procedure which was designed to combat the possibility of impropriety. She doesn’t. “They tell us that the scorecard is a nonmanipulative system, and to me, it can be one of the most manipulative systems there is. Judges know how to play it, if they want to.”

In addition, she was unimpressed with the way the new program was implemented at U.S. Nationals in 2008. “Another thing we have to do is find a way to make our shows more exhibitor friendly,” she says. “The U.S. Nationals halter classes were boring In her opinion, the perception Roxann Hart (my husband didn’t even of impropriety between want to wait through a long judges and the trainers over class, where the horses were presented one by one, to see which they officiate is a key factor. Because most judges me show).

I think AHA and the judges committee should recognize the fact. I’m not complaining that people try to influence judges; that will always go on.” For that reason, she advocates the foundation of a judging corps of qualified horsemen who would derive their

Even with her concerns, she dislikes the negativity and prefers to praise the shows that are growing and “doing things right.” Recently returned from the Iowa Gold Star, she cites its exciting halter classes, which used the comparative system, and the supportive attitude of show managers. The weekend’s ambience drew a bumper crowd of enthusiastic spectators. “There was certainly enough participation there!” she smiles. “Des Moines is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but the people came

It was totally devoted to the spectator and the exhibitor. All the points that make going to a horse show pleasant were there.” She acknowledges that it took money to put on the Iowa Gold Star, with its two separate sets of judges for the classes which gave exhibitors two opportunities in which to win substantial money.

would want, or to make a contribution of a good horse. So, yes, I came from that genre, but do I see it in other people?” She reflects and finally replies, “Some.” However, she also has clients who purchase horses for the investment and the flip. “At one time, I was told that I was the only person who bred their national champion mare, and whose mare had only one ownership until the time she died. You do have those great ones that you want to try to create from, and you get attached to the horse. But at the same time, I have a farm and a staff, and I have to ‘keep the wheels on the bus.’ So, yes, I do sell. But most of my sales right now are out of the country, and I thank God I have that international clientele. But they’re taking these horses to another area, and that doesn’t speak to our situation in the U.S.”

“I had a filly that I won the Spotlight program with,” she says. “It was the first time they’ve paid out any money at all—it’s such a young program—and for winning, I got $6,700. And that was not even the Auction! Prize money is a real draw.” The win assumed added importance when she considered the recent news that AHA had used money from the Breeders Sweepstakes program to “If you’re good enough, I still fund daily operations. would hope the judges would “That was a really powerful point for our breed, and it’s recognize the quality and play it been destroyed.”

She reflects on the future. “I think the only way to revive halter—and performance as well—is to do it on the basis that there is money awarded. These futurity forward. Everyone hopes to have programs cater to the a chance, and wants to feel that breeder because the breeder Hart returns to the basic gets to put a horse in the issue. “It is the halter they truly can succeed if in fact program’s auction.

RORY O’NEILL O’Neill Arabians LLC Cave Creek, Ariz. In a past article, Rory O’Neill warned that the significance of the declining halter numbers to the Arabian industry as a whole is that halter is the advanceguard segment of the business. As an entry point for many new owners, and the division with the breed’s youngest show horses, trends for the future emerge here first. With the average age of a performance horse now around 15, he points out, it is vital that there be a thriving halter and breeding industry to supply new horses in coming years. Instead, the trend seems to be going the other way: The average age of a halter contender now is 13 months—something that doesn’t bode well for the future.

doing the right things to attract new enthusiasts and get people to want to breed Arabians,” he says. “They may be doing things to get people to use Arabians already in the system—to go to trail rides or racing or endurance or community shows—but those are things you can do with a lot of other breeds.”

For O’Neill, one stumbling block to achieving real growth through AHA is the divergent desires of breeders and the owners who buy Arabian horses for competition. “I think the horse show people and commercial breeders disagree in the avenue that AHA is going to use to promote the breed and bring in new people,” he says. “There is a huge chasm of how each side would like to see money or energy used, and what messages should be sent out to other breed people or non-horse people to get involved and breed Arabian horses. If you go to Convention and are open-minded, you’ll see that. They’ve been working on their programs With that thought, he for 10 or 15 years, and we sees halter difficulties in haven’t seen any benefits. the context of the whole At the same time, the main industry, and that includes moneymaker for AHA is recognizing factors outside the show horse and breeder the horse business. “The programs that people decline in our breed is not participate in to pre-value necessarily a halter-induced their animals.

They may cut back, or decide not to breed and be a consumer and buy horses.” So what is happening? “Some of it is economical, and some is a trend of society and urbanization,” he says. “But horse people are shrinking, and we and AHA need to attract new people to get involved in the Arabian breed.” He considers AHA’s role in jumpstarting the growth of the breed. “I don’t think AHA as a front organization is

The two factions—breeders in AHA and the people who compete with horses in organized events—need to base plans for the future on the realities of marketing horses, he adds. “Just about everyone who loves Arabian horse will agree: They are living art, intuitive, charismatic—all the things we hear that we like about the Arabian horse. But most will agree that really, unless a horse is mid- to upper-level show quality, it is most likely pet quality,

As it is now, the U.S. Nationals is not just Arabian qualities often do not make the best ‘pet quality’ an event, but one that is a fundraiser for AHA’s overhead horses for many people, he observes. “The qualities costs and other events; that we love for racing or the people who pay the performance or endurance most—the exhibitors—get or the show ring don’t “The shows that are fun or have the least in return.

KEITH KRICHKE And he is optimistic about the success of new shows lately. “The shows that are fun or have prize money will always survive,” he says. “The others will have it harder than now—and maybe we have too many shows competing against each other, offering the same thing anyway. Perhaps consolidation is necessary, to eliminate redundancy and those that aren’t making it. Maybe some of the other shows will be able to prosper, once the dust settles. Most of us would rather show less often for prize money, with more competition and less dilution, where more of the marketplace shows up.” In the case of the major “must attend” shows, such as Nationals, O’Neill contends that when choosing a venue, the needs of exhibitors’ families must also be taken into account. “U.S. Nationals, for example, should be held someplace fun and easy to get to for friends, family, and

Krichke Training Center Vicksburg, Mich. For Keith Krichke, the difficulties in the halter division began more than a decade ago when restrictions unrelated to halter showing, such as performance requirements to qualify for national shows, were instituted. From there on, he says, the division has been too excessively regulated. “Now we’re told we have to make these judges accountable,” he says. “They say that’s why our breed is going downhill. But you know what? As long as there is judging, there is going to be favoritism, whatever system you’re using. That’s human nature, and it’s not going away. For the most part, these guys are more than competent. So to me, that’s not the issue. What is the

WILL WE HAVE HALTER IN TWO YEARS?

issue is that over the past five or six years, we’ve taken the show out of the show. There’s not the excitement. When you don’t have the excitement, you don’t have the enthusiasm. When you don’t have the enthusiasm, you have people not wanting to breed their horses.” There are other issues involved, he agrees, such as the economy at the present; some of the present decline in breeding is due to breeders’ hesitancy about producing large numbers of foals until they are certain of their financial futures outside the horse world. “But that is not what got us to this point,” he argues. “What we’ve done to the horse shows in going to what is really a European

winners. But that’s not the deal. The deal is that they’ve forgotten the Arabian horse show.” What about the contention that a halter trainer can teach his or her owners the finer points of horsemanship and how to appreciate the evaluations of the new scoring system? “You can do that all the way until we don’t have a horse in the arena,” he replies. “It’s about a show. Don’t make this too difficult: Just look at all the excitement generated at the Iowa Gold Star when the judges pulled out the horses and compared them.” He points out that if owners and spectators just want to appreciate beautiful horses, they can do that outside the show environment at any time.

“I see smaller shows that are bigger than our Class A shows. That tells me that this industry is not dead. … There are still a lot of people out there who want to show Arabians. That’s good news.” —Keith Krichke

Keith Krichke system, with the scorecard, is responsible. I’d have to say that on the whole, the majority of our clients aren’t liking this deal.” Krichke notes that he, personally, enjoyed showing under the scorecard at the 2008 U.S. Nationals. “I’ll be honest with you, last year when I showed it, I had a blast. I really enjoyed it and I had a great time. It was two and a half minutes of just you and your horse, with everyone watching you. But the spectators didn’t like it, and we need to make this fun again.” Also, he says, his objections are not related to the issue of impropriety. “It’s about being comparative. It’s not about the impropriety. The scoring pretty much gets the right

206 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

As with others interviewed for this series, Krichke praises the Iowa Gold Star Show for its overall quality. He also sees it and other shows along the same lines (the Scottsdale Signature classes, for instance) as the beginning of an important trend in the Arabian industry. “I think we’ll see more independent shows starting up,” he says. He is undecided on whether that is a good thing for the long term or not, because that will mean a diminished role for AHA, but in terms of the past few years, he is inclined to view with hope a future that includes more events that are geared to pleasing exhibitors and spectators, and providing prize money. “If we do more of these privately-run shows, I believe they will probably offer back pretty good prize money, because I think they will get sponsorships. Once you get that money involved and you take it back to a comparative-type system, where there is some, it’s like any competition. When there is


WILL WE HAVE HALTER IN TWO YEARS?

competition, it’s a comparative factor, and that’s what decides which one you like best. “I think we’ve hit the bottom and there is nowhere to go but up,” he concludes. “I think American breeders want to go back to what they used to have. If we don’t, we won’t have as many breeders, and that will affect both halter and performance people. There will be fewer horses to show in halter or to ride.” He also is hopeful about a development in the show scene that he has noticed recently. “I see smaller shows that are bigger than our Class A shows,” he says. “That tells me that this industry is not dead. Part of their success is the cost; you go to a little show where the stalls are $30, and the next week you go to a Class A show and the same stall is $65. Stalling, entry fees, post-entry fees—that can all add up. When it costs a little less and people participate, that tells me that there are still a lot of people out there who want to show Arabians. That’s good news.”

ANDREW SELLMAN Argent Farm River Falls, Wis. Asked what can be done to improve the halter division in the American show ring today, Andrew Sellman responds succinctly. “The ones to ask are Russ and Kelly Reynolds, of the Iowa Gold Star Futurity,” he says. “I just returned from their show with a feeling of tremendous optimism for the future of the Arabian industry. The show was like the ones I first went to 20 years ago. People were contently mingling throughout the fairgrounds, with no desire to go back to the hotel or go play golf. All the excitement was at the show that Russ and Kelly and the rest of the show committee created. “First of all, this was one of the most exhibitor-friendly shows I had ever attended,” he continues. “The staff was legitimately appreciative of all attendees. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were served daily through generous sponsorships from supporters of the show.” In addition to the comfortable atmosphere, however, Sellman was clear about two highly acclaimed assets of the Iowa Gold Star. “The prize money is such a nice

“At the Iowa Gold Star, people were contently mingling throughout the fairgrounds, with no desire to go back to the hotel or go play golf. … I could go on and on! I venture to say that any exhibitor that was there this year will be back next year.” —Andrew Sellman treat!” he says, and applauds the quality of the judging as well. “The judges who were chosen for the show displayed outstanding horsemanship and honesty in their judging. “I could go on and on! I venture to say that any exhibitor that was there this year will be back next year. I expect this show’s entries to go up next year—and not by a small percentage either, which is pretty refreshing in an otherwise decline in numbers of entries at shows. The success of this show is directly attributed to the hard work, open minds, and good energy of Russ and Kelly and their entire crew. I thank them for the good experience. Hopefully, more will follow this example.” ■

Region 3 A National Favorite by Gina Czupka While it encompasses just two states, California and Nevada, Region 3 is a destination for Arabian horse lovers from all across the country. As much as outsiders like the region, the region likes them right back, welcoming them for major events and competitions. “We like to host conventions—we’re on our third one this year,” Region 3 Director Deborah Johnson says with a laugh. The region’s championship show is another major draw, thanks to its strong competition and smart organization. Even though exhibitors would be enthusiastic about competing anyway, the regional committee felt that it was important to recognize the accomplishments of competitors in new ways. “At this year’s show, we rolled out a ‘unanimous ribbon,’” Johnson says. “In classes of three or more, if we had a unanimous regional champion, they got an extra gold neck ribbon. That made the show a little unique, and people really enjoyed it.” The way the classes were carried out changed a little bit this year as well, to the appreciation of the show’s spectators. “We held the classes in the arena instead of sending them back up the long tunnel that we have,” Johnson says. “I think the exhibitors were very happy with that for a couple of reasons. First, the warm-up area had much less confusion and was a much safer environment. And secondly, in the main arena, there were horses in there all the time for spectators to look at, rather than five minutes of an empty arena.” But with a show that is consistently well received, some things are best left as they are. “We still have our futurities and our progressive barn party and our youth activities. Those are always a hit, so we keep those going,” Johnson says, adding that the annual youth stick-horse event was well supported and a big hit once again. Likewise, the more serious competition was a draw, even for people from outside the region’s borders. “Our classes are good sized, and there was great depth of competition this year,” she says. “We had exhibitors from all over the West Coast, and that definitely stepped it up in several divisions.” The demand for sport horse classes in Region 3 was so strong that it was one of the first regions to introduce a

8 • REGION 3 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

separate regional championship show for those divisions. It has been a strong competition, although this year, it felt a bit of the impact of the difficult economic times. “Our sport horse show was held in August, and it was unfortunately down a little bit in numbers, but they do a really nice job with their show,” Johnson says. “There is an evening with entertainment and silent auctions and people just love it.” Just as with the regular Region 3 championships, innovation is always on the minds of the show committees. “We’re always looking at how we can improve the shows,” Johnson says. One area in which Region 3 is a standout is in the involvement of its youth, and the depth of its youth programs. “We’ve always been very committed to that,” Johnson says. “For as long as I can remember going to the meetings, even back in the ’80s, it just always has been very strong. The youth program has always been self-supporting. What they raise is what they have to use. Some years they’ve had an extra amount of money that they’ve raised, and they can use that as they see fit.” She says that kids in the region aren’t afraid to get involved. “We have a new youth director, because the other termed out and is now serving as AHYA treasurer. We’re proud to have a member on the executive board of that group.” Johnson adds that the youth are innovative thinkers, too. “It kind of goes in waves. There will be a holding pattern for a little while, and then the next group of kids comes along and they take it to the next level. We had a whole bunch of 13-year-olds who wanted to serve but couldn’t (because AHA requires them to be 14 years old)—now they can. So in the next few years, we expect it to take another leap forward.” Region 3 brings together the very diverse population of Arabian horse enthusiasts and caters to all of their interests. “We’re very balanced,” Johnson says. “We have a number of people in the region who are involved in Arabian horse racing, we have wonderful areas for trail and endurance rides, and those have picked back up in the last few years. Our sport horse was one of the first shows to stand alone as a regional show. With our great base of volunteers—seasoned ones and new volunteers—we come together and we have a strong, solvent region.”

Open House

by Lori Ricigliano

newly weaned babies. When the hitch tour was concluded, more adventurous guests took to four-wheelers that were supplied for individual exploration of Oak Ridge.

Ever the gracious hosts, Don and Janey Morse started welcoming their guests the night before the open house, and in the morning more guests arrived by carloads to enjoy the beautiful weather and the gorgeous horses that call Oak Ridge Arabians “home.”

Towards the afternoon, guests enjoyed walking around the massive western-inspired lounge and office that overlook an indoor arena, the stalls and an entertainment area. Carrots were offered by the visitors to the many Arabian horses in their stalls, and the lounge and arena were beautifully decorated with fall floral arrangements that featured a palette of rich browns and golds.

A surprise awaited all the guests—an impressive drafthorse hitch offering tours of Oak Ridge. Guests were able to view in comfort the expansive Oak Ridge facility that consists of over 250 acres of pastures filled with national champion horses, mares with foals at their sides, and

As dusk approached, a seated dinner was offered alfresco, and afterwards the guests moved inside to the lounge and entertainment area of the indoor arena. With trainer David Boggs’ introduction, the presentation of Oak Ridge Arabian’s finest horses began. The superstar

lineup included many international champions, national champions and future winners owned and/or bred by Oak Ridge Arabians. The guests crowded around the horses and offered them carrots, hugs and kisses. Don and Janey also arranged a very emotional surprise that evening for their good friend Mary Meyers. The late Riley Meyers and his wife, Mary, were close friends of the Morses and introduced them to the Arabian horse. As the music “Hero” played, the reserve national champion stallion FS Ritz was brought into the arena by his current owners and trainers, Al and Glenna Gruppen. (FS Ritz was the Meyers’ favorite horse and was owned by them for many years.) Mary and her mother-in-law, Norma Meyers,

approached the charismatic stallion with tear-filled eyes and, needless to say, there was not a dry eye in the house. The grand finale of the evening came as Oak Ridge’s champion stallion *Fausto CRH caught the last of the evening light as he galloped into the arena with his trainer Randy Anderson in the saddle. Riding to the song “God Bless America,” they carried the American flag to the standing and applauding crowd. As the evening’s presentation of horses came to a close, music and dancing commenced. It was a wonderful ending to a beautiful open house that brought friends together from near and far. ■

VARIAN ARABIANS’ OPEN HOUSE

“Everybody socialized and had fun, and we got to share with them some of our Arabian horse knowledge, and to help new syndicate members begin to develop relationships with the animals. We teach all the time, in everything we do,” Varian adds. “There is always some moment when we stop and explain what we are doing, and how and why we are doing it. “People are always surprised that their Varian Arabians are so accepting of what they ask of them. I explain that at this farm, we raise our horses as horses. They are expected to work and to earn their keep. The work is never drudgery, and we allow them time to accept the work.” “The Summer Jubilee is a magical weekend,” she continues. “When people come through our gates, they feel like they are stepping into another land.” Varian Arabians is special. Every aspect of a Summer Jubilee weekend reflects the woman at the helm’s steadfast commitment: to breeding only the finest Arabian horses, and to sharing, with an ever-widening audience, the knowledge and experience she has gained in her more than 50 years with Arabian horses. Lorie Henderson began reading about Sheila Varian during the Ronteza days, and has been going to Varian’s Summer Jubilees since Bay-Abi, Bay El Bey and Huckleberry Bey were still among us. “In 1996, my husband Neil and I bought a Huckleberry Bey daughter from his last crop. She is 16, and we still show her in hunter, ladies side saddle, and show hack. Since then, we have bought a few more Varian mares, all then sold to customers. We bought a Jullyen El Jamaal colt we saw on the DVD before we came here, and we—my daughter, Jennifer, and I—drove out

to the farm to pick him up. We had an empty spot on the trailer, so we bought a gorgeous colt named Brando V!” “There is never any ‘buyer’s remorse’ with a Varian horse.” —Lorie Henderson Clinician Brett Becker has known Varian since he was a little boy. “With her stories, her knowledge, and the relaxed, entertaining way she shares her experiences with her audience, she has a unique way of bringing all kinds of people together. It was an amazing weekend, and we had a fantastic experience.” “Brett and Marjie Becker did a great job as clinicians,” offers Vickie Lynott. She and husband, Bill, attended two Summer Jubilees before purchasing their first Varian Arabian in 2004. Today, they own four, the most recent of which they bought at this year’s Summer Jubilee. During Saturday afternoon’s clinic, Becker called Lynott out of the audience to give her a riding lesson on McClintock V. “What a huge thrill, and what a great horse!” she says with feeling. “You know, although I have been to these events many times, I still get as excited now as I did the first time I saw the Varian Arabians sign!” “My wife, Cheryl, bought a horse from Sheila, maybe 30 years ago,” notes Joe Stubbs. “We bought Jessica James V here three years ago. With Sheila’s magnetism, her charm, and her ability to communicate spontaneously, she gives her audiences fun, always interesting, useful information, and a sense of the artistry of the breeding and training process. Sheila is clearly the grand dame of the Arabian horse world. At Varian Arabians, it’s all about the journey.” ■

Guest Editorial:

The State Of Our Dis-Union by Dick Ames

I’ve been in this business since the mid-1960s, so you might say I’ve seen the good days and the bad—and now, in my opinion, the worst days. It seems like everyone is bickering about everything in the breed, and the result is that I think we’re killing a good thing. Yes, I know, we’re in an economic recession and that has had a negative effect on the Arabian industry. But that is not the whole story, and anyhow, every horse breed is going through a recession. Our concern is Arabians, and what we need is solutions. We need ways to start growing again. My personal opinion is that we should forget about our differences and try to promote our breed as best we can, because we have competition. Those other breeds are looking for ways to recover and grow too. The bottom line of how our breed survives, whether we like it or not, is money. I’ve spent a ton of money in my time in Arabians, and I’ve had a good time doing it. Nobody put a gun to my head. So I know what it feels like to see the cash flowing out. I also know a lot about the rewards in terms of fun and satisfaction. In the past 40-plus years, we at Cedar Ridge have had our share of that. But for the Arabian breed to go forward, someone has to be buying, showing (at whatever level), and using Arabians. I don’t see the influx of new people and an increase in activity; in fact, what I’m seeing is just the opposite. That’s a problem for all of us. Let me make something clear: When I say money, I’m not saying we need a bunch of rich people, although some are always helpful. There are always people who are immune to the economy, but I don’t think we have enough of them in Arabians any more to save the business. I mean the rank and file—people who own horses, who ride them, breed them, compete with them one way or another, talk about the breed, are proud of their horses and bring their

254 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

friends to events. People who volunteer at horse activities, who support the breed. What we need now is the spirit that was everywhere back in the 1970s and 1980s, when the Arabian breed was the envy of the horse industry. We had real excitement then. You had to get to a horse show early to get a seat. The tax reforms of 1986 may have changed a lot of that, but they didn’t change the love for Arabians that generated all of that in the first place. Maybe one of our problems is that we have a reputation of being a rich man’s sport. Supposedly, there have been horses sold for millions of dollars. Do you think that scares new people coming into it? We have a big lesson program at Cedar Ridge. Heather Linnenbringer has about 60 people in it, with a waiting list. Naturally, the name of the game is to get those riding students to move on into show horses, but a lot of them have asked us, “Do you have to have a lot of money to be in Arabians?” Everyone in Arabians knows—or should—that you can play this game at any level. It’s not an “industry” for most people, no matter what we call it. It’s a hobby. It can be an expensive hobby or it can be at a level where almost anyone can play it that wants to. I’m told that cost is one reason the sport horse segment of our breed is growing so well. They don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to participate. I think it is important to remember that while there will always be some Arabian horse owners who can afford to play at the highest level and don’t have to pay much attention to the bottom line, there likewise will always be a large amount of people who want to love the horse and have fun with it, but have to watch the financial side. It’s like buying cars now; for most people, the gas guzzlers are out. A lot of people wanting to own and show a horse are going to choose a breed where they can participate for the


THE STATE OF OUR DIS-UNION

least amount of money. We have to service that segment of the buying public as well as the high rollers. The next thing that in my opinion we need to accept is that show ring politics will always be there. We were complaining about judging back in the good old days, and we’re still doing it today. Probably less politics is played than we think, but since it is what we think that matters, that doesn’t really help. The point is, you can’t legislate morality and you can’t control what people think. But you can turn off potential buyers with too many rules and too much argument. So, what do we have to market here? What is different about the Arabian from any other horse breed? Arabians are prettier—hands down, there is no argument there. If you want the highest-trotting horse, you buy a Saddlebred. You want one to slide farther? Buy a Quarter Horse. You want the most beautiful horse in the world? You have to come to Arabians. We have to support our halter division. That isn’t to say that Arabians won’t attract people who do more than halter. Money can attract new participation, and good shows can keep people coming back. My reining trainer, Brian Welman, wasn’t in Arabians until we put money into the breed with the reining futurities. His wife, Kim, has told me that they really enjoy the Arabian shows because there is so much variety. They don’t have to watch 400 horses and riders spin and slide. There is a lot more positive in this breed than negative, if we will just see clearly, listen up, and figure out what we can agree on instead of squabbling. Especially the way the economy is, I think we should all pull together to market the horse and get more people involved in it. When I say “pull together,” I mean get involved. In my family, Lollie represents Cedar Ridge on I don’t know how many committees, and Lara is very involved with the magazine, as well as breeding and showing horses and putting on our sale in Scottsdale every February. One of the ways I got involved was helping to start the reining futurities, along with Tom Redmond and Joe Betten. We put up the seed money. I know, people said we did it for our own personal gain. I’m here to tell you I could win every prize in the futurities over the 10 years that we have funded, and I still wouldn’t recoup my

contribution. We all did it because we wanted to help the breed. We thought if we got it started, others would step in and help and in 10 years, we’d have a good, strong program funded for the future. But we’re going into the sixth year now, and as far as I can tell, everyone is just standing around and waiting for us to do it again in four years. I want to know: Why isn’t anyone else stepping up? Where are the other owners? The trainers? The veterinarians? The farriers? Everyone who participates in reining? We all need to be there. Good things don’t just happen on their own. I know that it is easy to be discouraged. There just isn’t time for that these days. Not long ago, my brother came to a horse show with me. He looked around at all the empty seats and said, “If this is such an exciting event, why isn’t there anyone in the stands watching it?” Thank heavens we have Scottsdale, and they’re doing it right. I don’t always agree with them, but I admire them. They have the money (yes, money again), and they’re spending it. They’re putting on a show and bringing people in. Same thing at the Denver Stock Show. The stands are full. We don’t show our horses just to ourselves there—we have a crowd. When we are tired with all the fighting and maybe hesitant about the big job ahead of us, I think it helps to remember the past (not everyone does, so maybe those of us who were there need to tell them). I remember when we joined the Minnesota Arabian Horse Association. My first job was going around before the club’s show and putting up posters that said, “MAHA—the Largest Arabian Horse Show in the World.” You know why we could say that? Because Dan Gainey lived up the road in Owatonna. He was our Michael Jordan. Back then, we all wanted to have an operation like Dan Gainey’s. We weren’t fighting. We all loved our horses and what we were doing with them—and boy, we were proud of them. One time I took my sister Audrey to Gainey Arabians, and she said, “My God, Mr. Gainey has a nice house.” I said, “Dan Gainey doesn’t live there. Ferzon does.” Let’s put the horse first again, and cut out all this infighting. Our organization, AHA, hasn’t always served us well, and maybe it is time for us to demand better. But everything rides on our remembering that we are a community of Arabian horse lovers, and it is time for us to step up to the plate. ■

BarnLogix®: The Logical Choice

by Linda White Once in a great while, a product comes along that is unimaginably useful, has dozens of practical, everyday applications, and looks, well, at first glance, simple. We slap our foreheads and exclaim, “Why didn’t I think of that?” BarnLogix® is that amazing new product. Th is great new innovation, BarnLogix®, is the creative masterwork of highly regarded electrical engineer and horsewoman Dee Hays.

With the touch of a finger, BarnLogix® provides immediate, cost-effective energy management. With a centrally located BarnLogix® unit, controlling the cooling, lighting, ventilation and humidity for energy savings is easy. Yet, that is only the tip of the iceberg for what this technology can do—feed schedules, horse health information, emergency contacts, as well as control of just about everything in the

BarnLogix® at P.O. Box 881, Mounds, OK 74047. Telephone: 918-633-8494; Website: www.barnlogix.com 256 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


building, including fly control systems and surveillance cameras. Th is also translates into tax deductions for eligible veterinary clinics and many commercial stables. New product users are unanimously praising the unit’s easily customized settings for activating and turning off specific functions, such as time-sensitive lighting control to affect mare estrus cycles. The name BarnLogix® is becoming synonymous with convenience. For example, at Legacy Equine Surgical Hospital in Tulsa, Okla., their unit displays color-coded dots, or a “flagging” system, on the front of each of the stall icons, indicating each horse’s status and/or care condition.

Built to industrial standards to ensure its durability, a BarnLogix® unit works wonders in a variety of places, from commercial and residential barns, airports and banks, to veterinary offices, clinics and hospitals. In addition, every BarnLogix® unit’s industrial steel enclosure can be cleverly customized, with a built-tothe buyer’s-specs outer skin, on which can be displayed the owner’s logo, promotional photos, designs, and other adornments, from the commercial to the personal. “When I first developed BarnLogix®, my motives were purely selfish,” admits its inventor, Dee Hays. “I started having trouble with the plug-in

light timers in my barn. Constantly dealing with power outages, faulty timers and other malfunctions made me realize there must be a better way to make my barn operate more efficiently. I initially developed a system in my own barn for controlling the special lighting I used for coat therapy and to save energy in the summertime, when horses were under fans, preventing them from getting sunburned. As I added various capabilities, I kept each operation simple and user-friendly.”

BarnLogix® has taken the market by storm in the last year, with its numerous option possibilities, such as its newly added surveillance camera option and a bird deterrent system that runs off those pesky birds with a bird call system. Do you begin to get the idea, here? What do you need to take more control of in your barn? BarnLogix® units can be easily tailored to the needs of each new owner. With BarnLogix® on the job, peace of mind is immediate and lasting.

The Arabian English Performance Association

Getting The Motor Running by Colleen Scott

Since its inception some three-plus years ago, the Arabian English Performance Association (AEPA) has kept up with an ambitious agenda with one goal in mind—help shape the future of the Arabian breed. As one of the initial organizers, Joel Kiesner explains, “Our future can be whatever we dream it to be.” His thoughts were to create an atmosphere that encourages breeding, buying and selling, with huge prize money, transparent judging, and enthusiastic participation. Those things, in turn, would not only ignite those already involved in the Arabian horse industry, but also attract new people to the breed. Turns out, Kiesner was correct and the AEPA agenda has helped set the tone for growth in the English division. “The really good news is that the Arabian English horse is on the rise. Entries are up in most English classes; in fact, the second largest class at the U.S. Nationals this year (according to numbers published on the Arabian Horse Association website) will be the Arabian Country English Pleasure Adult Amateur Owner to Ride 36 – 54 Championship class. We’ve also been tracking the number of breedings to stallions in our program over the last three years, and the total number of English-type babies has gone up by 4% during those three years. This is remarkable given the overall number of Arabians and Half-Arabians being registered is declining at about the same rate,” he says. The fact that breedings for English-type babies are on the rise with the down economy declining registrations speaks volumes about the new interest in English-type Arabians. To make way for all those newly-bred English babies and put them to the test, the inaugural AEPA Arabian English Performance Futurity at Scottsdale was held for the third year in 2009, with the addition of the new AEPA Arabian English Pleasure Maturity ATR class. The 2009 Ohio Buckeye Show hosted the second annual AEPA English Pleasure Futurity for Yearlings. With full classes in all three of the money events, it is clear that Arabian enthusiasts are finding it appealing to bring more cash home than what they brought to the show. The AEPA has given away tens of thousands in prize money to date.

Joel Kiesner

“I challenge every person out there to get involved, to pay attention, to speak up and be heard regarding the decisions that impact our breed.”

We took some time to talk with Joel Kiesner about the state of the organization.

OCTOBER 20 09 | AEPA FUTURIT Y • 9


GETTING THE MOTOR RUNNING

What’s New? “We got some feedback last year that the stallion service auction was being held too late—that people had already made their breeding decisions. So this year, the auction will not be in February and March, as it has been in the past. Instead, the auction will begin at 6 p.m. CST, October 28 and conclude at 9 p.m. CST on December 14. The Arabian Horse Times (www.ahtimes.com) will host the online auction. “We think by changing the timing of the stallion service auction, we will help people plan better for the coming breeding season,” says Kiesner.

“The AEPA belongs to everyone. It belongs to everybody who participates, owns, rides, loves, breeds and enjoys Arabian horses,” he says. “It is ours, and we are ultimately responsible for it, along with the success and growth of the Arabian breed.”

The stallion service auction, which includes breedings to an average of 75 top breeding stallions, is the fund-raising mechanism by which the program will become completely self-sustaining within the next several years. In the meantime, the board (which includes such well-known industry leaders as Lara Ames, Bob Battaglia, Barbara Chur, Peter Conway, Brian Murch and Irwin Schimmel) continues to seek funding through additional sources. “We’ve had great support from people over the last three years and just have two more years to go,” says Kiesner. “We don’t expect just a handful of people to be the backbone of the program, but if a lot of people could just do a little, it would go a long way toward getting us through these final years.” Besides changing the dates of the stallion service auction, the AEPA board has also elected to change the AEPA Arabian English Pleasure Maturity ATR class qualifications. “To encourage more participation and help the class grow faster, we are now going to allow not just 5-year-olds, but also 6- and 7-year-olds. That means at the 2010 Scottsdale Show, the class will be open to all horses that were part of the program from its inception,” he says. Whether or not a past winner will be able to show again is yet to be determined, but Kiesner expects the board to make a decision soon.

What Is Staying The Same? With a judging system allowing for both rail and pattern work, a specific evaluation system for upcoming halter horses, big prize money and the excitement that comes along with it, the AEPA is clearly on target and moving in the right direction to generate excitement about the Arabian horse. They are also an organization eager for participation and suggestions from others, but don’t want to leap into changes before the existing systems have been tried. “Last year we changed the weighting of the scoring and scorecard,” says Kiesner. “The response we received was overwhelmingly positive, but there were some suggestions made to tweak the system. We have decided (rather than to have a knee-jerk reaction after just one year) that we would wait and leave the system the same for now. If you keep making changes, nobody knows what to expect,” he says.

What’s In It For Me? Besides the opportunity to win great prize money, showcase English prospects, generate excitement about the breed, attract potential sponsors, and other horse enthusiasts—what else do you need? How about the ability to help shape the future of the breed?

GETTING THE MOTOR RUNNING

What Kiesner is quick to point out is that the AEPA is not just the board members or the winners of the big prize money or even the English division breeders, competitors, trainers and exhibitors. “The AEPA belongs to everyone. It belongs to everybody who participates, owns, rides, loves, breeds and enjoys Arabian horses,” he says. “It is ours, and we are ultimately responsible for it, along with the success and growth of the Arabian breed. It isn’t the responsibility of the Arabian Horse Association and the people that meet at convention once a year to determine the direction of this breed. It is our organization, and we are responsible for its success.”

What Can I Do? With Kiesner’s enthusiasm, proven success and the call to action to the rest of the Arabian horse industry, the next question is clearly, “What can I do?” A lot, as it turns out. “This program is just a step. It’s not the entire solution. It is a microcosm of the entire industry and a stepping stone in addressing the issues of selling more breedings, bringing new people into the breed, and generating excitement at our shows. But it is going to take more than the AEPA, its board and those participating in the program. It’s going to take effort from everyone to make the industry vibrant and successful, the way we all know it can be,” he says. Here is what Kiesner says needs to happen for AEPA’s success and enthusiasm to spread even further and generate more excitement in the breed across the board: • People that actually have a stake in the outcome need to work on the solutions to existing challenges. • People need to set aside their egos and personal interests for the greater good, for what is best for our breed and our shows. We are a show horse breed, so let’s act like it. • The people who have spent their lives dedicated to breeding, showing and promoting Arabian horses need to get involved and participate, and not leave the decision-making to the people who spend one week at convention and 100 hours/week on the Internet! • We need to stop trying to fix things by being restrictive and start trying to fix things by being innovative, proactive and creative. • We need to make AHA a reflection of the desires and dreams of people that actually supply the money that supports the organization.

“This program is just a step. It’s not the entire solution. It is a microcosm of the entire industry and a stepping stone in addressing the issues of selling more breedings, bringing new people into the breed, and generating excitement at our shows.”

“I challenge every person out there to get involved, to pay attention, to speak up and be heard regarding the decisions that impact our breed. I challenge you every day to encourage someone else by telling them they have a nice horse, by taking them to your barn, by helping them at their first show, by giving them the opportunity to pet their first Arabian horse. We are all part of the solution. The AEPA is just one of many steps in the process. Imagine what we could do with more programs just like it. We have a great product. The Arabian and Half-Arabian English horses are great to ride—as are Arabians suited to other disciplines. We believe in them 100%.” ■

Leaders Of The Times: October Calendar Feature

Magnum Psyche by Colleen Scott

Like the eagerly awaited return of Brett Favre to the football field, Dara Torres to the swimming pool and Lance Armstrong to the streets of France, the return of Magnum Psyche to the show ring at the 2009 Scottsdale Show was highly anticipated by Arabian enthusiasts around the globe. Although the stallion had never officially retired, he hadn’t been in a U.S. show ring since 2004 when he captured his last U.S. Nationals championship title. Enthusiastic crowds were on hand to watch as long-time handler David Boggs led the legendary chestnut stallion into Wendell Arena, and there was no doubt to anyone watching that he still had what it took to be a champion. Magnum Psyche (Padrons Psyche x A Fancy Miracle) certainly didn’t disappoint the crowds in Scottsdale, capturing first the Champion Senior Stallion title, then the Scottsdale Supreme Champion title. He was also the Leading Halter and Performance Sire of Purebred Winners (by number of winning get). He proved that not only was he still a force in the show ring, but that his progeny had the ability to carry on the tradition.

296 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

Interestingly, for the first time at a major show, the old adage, “pretty is as pretty does” proved to be true in the case of Magnum Psyche. At the 2009 Scottsdale Show, his offspring had more major awards in performance hunter and western pleasure than in halter, including wins by Captain Magnum (x HR Bellena), HJ Famoso (x Poetry SMF), JK Magnetic (x JK Angelbasksko), Alerro (x Tuscany Bey), and Truly Magnetic CB (x Dar Nuba). The Magnum Psyche get in the halter arena were successful as well. DD Crown Jewel (x Crown Victoria) was Champion Halter Mare JTH. Fantastica HVP (x Taamara HVP) was Reserve Champion Halter Mare JTH, and MM Magnum Butterfly (x Flameworthy) was Champion Half-Arabian Halter Stock/Hunter Type Mare. Truly, the legend of Magnum Psyche continues. While it seems everyone knows his story, for the sake of any newcomers to the industry or any who might have doubted his influence, let us review. Magnum Psyche holds the following titles, a feat absolutely unparalleled in the industry:

Leading Sire at Scottsdale 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 (2007 and 2008, halter and performance). Leading Sire of Halter Champions at the U.S. National Championships in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. Leading Sire of Halter Champions at the Canadian National Championships in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Leading Sire of Breeders Sweepstakes Champions in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005. Leading Juvenile Sire 2001, 2002 and 2003, setting an alltime industry record. Leading Sire of Champions 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009 at the MAHB Fall Festival, the richest futurity in the country. Leading Sire of Argentine National Show Championships 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Abroad, the influence of Magnum Psyche continues to be a force in the Arabian horse industry, with the chestnut stallion holding the position of leading sire of Arabian horses exported from America, as well as the leading sire of Arabian horses imported to America. The fees paid for breedings to Magnum have topped the charts at the nation’s richest futurities, the Iowa Gold Star, Minnesota (MAHB) and Arizona Arabian Horse Breeders. At this year’s Iowa Gold Star Auction, the Magnum Psyche breeding again took the top bid at $26,000. He was also awarded the Sire of Significance Award at the show, and met with a standing ovation.

Indeed, it is not Magnum’s titles that are impressive to those unfamiliar with such measurements of greatness; it is his largerthan-life presence, coupled with a kind and gentle spirit. At any Midwest celebration, Magnum is the center of attention, sweetly accepting the fond pats of well-wishers, tenderly nibbling treats from the small hands of adoring children, and regally standing himself with a mere nod from Boggs. How Magnum Psyche rose to the top of the industry and remains there with absolutely no other stallion close to touching his many records, is part hereditary, part mystery, part magic, and part teamwork. Genetically speaking, Magnum Psyche comes from fine stock. He was born in 1995, sired by Padrons Psyche (Padron x Kilika) and out of A Fancy Miracle (*Sasaki x *Medina Azahara), champion Arabians in their own right. Entering the show ring the next year, he was named Buckeye Junior Colt Champion, Region 4 Breeders Sweepstakes Yearling Colt Champion, and, in his first of record-setting accomplishments, became the U.S. National Champion Breeders Sweepstakes Yearling Colt, receiving the highest points ever awarded by the judges using the European judging system.

In 1998, he followed up those wins with the U.S. and Canadian National titles as well as the Ohio Buckeye Champion Stallion title. In 2000, he made his foray into the international show ring, capturing the Argentine National Champion Stallion title with an unanimous decision. He returned, triumphantly, to the show ring in 2004, capturing the U.S. National Champion Senior Stallion title unanimously. At that same U.S. Nationals, Magnum’s Magnum Psyche progeny captured multiple titles, including that of Reserve National Champion Senior Stallion, Lists, numbers, championship titles and awards don’t tell the making it the first time a father (Magnum) and son ( Jaayd) entire story of Magnum Psyche.

In Memoriam:

Mon Bandaid (1977 – 2009) by Colleen Scott

The Arabian horse industry lost one of its true superstars this summer when Cathy and Russ Vecsey’s beloved Mon Bandaid (Mon Ta Basko x Diana Osaya, by Meteor) was humanely put down on August 24. Named for the unique white stripe that encircled his left front leg, the chestnut gelding launched what would be a remarkable show career prior to 1986 (as far back as the Arabian Horse Association DataSource has record). For the 14-year time span covered by DataSource, Mon Bandaid’s show ring record encompasses six pages, including national, regional, Buckeye and class A championship titles. ArabianResults.com details 31 national awards since 1984, including five championships, four reserve championships and 22 top tens. Mon Bandaid’s victory passes covered multiple divisions: English pleasure, country English pleasure, driving, mounted native costume and ladies English side saddle. “Sometimes we would do regions 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18 all in the same year,” says owner Cathy Vecsey. In the late 1980s, with class numbers high, his accomplishments stand out even more. For example, in 1989 at the Region 15 Championship Show, Vecsey competed against 21 other riders in Arabian Mounted Native Costume and 22 other riders in Arabian English Pleasure—winning the championships in both. “He was always ready to go. It was easy for him,” she says. “He wasn’t a horse you had to work and work and work.” The last time Mon Bandaid was shown, at the age of 23, he captured the reserve championship in Arabian Country English Pleasure AOTR at Region 16, with Russ Vecsey aboard. While Mon Bandaid’s talent and willingness were memorable, his impact on Cathy’s life was far more than

providing her with a roomful of trophies, ribbons and pictures. “Mon,” as she affectionately called him, came into Vecsey’s life during her teenage years and helped her forge bonds with her parents for which she is still thankful today. As she recalls, her parents had a “date day” once a week, usually on Saturday. One particular Saturday in 1983, they happened to drive by Stachowski Farms and stopped in to inquire about horses for sale. (The family already owned Arabians, but not of Mon Bandaid’s caliber.) With that spur-of-the-moment decision, Vecsey’s life was changed forever. “He was a great horse for me to learn on,” she recalls. “He was my first show horse and taught me so much. No matter how much I learned from others, he always had something else to teach.” After retiring in 2000, Mon Bandaid spent his days at Vecsey’s Hawk Haven Farms in Easton, Conn. “He was still very stall protective,” she says. “He enjoyed being out, but only if it wasn’t too sunny, too humid or if there weren’t too many bugs. If he was finished being outside, he would come to the gate and bob his head up and down until you let him back in.” Mon Bandaid’s favorite treat was Dunkin’ Donuts glazed donut holes, and he made it known anytime he saw the distinctive pink and orange box. “If you showed up with a donut box, he went crazy,” Vecsey says. “He certainly did love them.” Diagnosed with a heart murmur several years ago, Mon Bandaid remained healthy through this past summer, but Vecsey knew his time had come. “He definitely made me who I am today. He was just a special soul,” she says. “There is a huge, huge hole in my heart, but I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.” ■

Times For Amateurs Thinking Versus Knowing by Keri Schenter It’s hard for me to grasp the fact that I’ve now been riding and showing my ‘new’ horse, Country, for more than four years now. Granted, I took last year off, but I should be to the point now where I know what to expect every time I get on. While that is largely the case, in that I know it’s a rare thing for my horse to spook or do silly things, I have found myself struggling with trying to put the “whole picture” together. Part of my problem as a rider is that I think too much. I get a limited amount of time in my own saddle since Country and his trainer live eight hours away, so each ride I get is an opportunity for me to soak up as much as I can, both physically and mentally. Personally, I think my ability to analyze and think through what I do (and don’t do) is a good thing, but as my trainer has pointed out to me on many an occasion, sometimes the thought and conceived perceptions can be a bad thing. Take, for example, my bugaboo gait—the lope. Country’s lope, strangely, is the one gait that completely sold me on him when I test rode him, but it’s always been the one element I have struggled to master. It’s not a matter of leads, it’s my inability to transition into a smooth and flowing yet slow gait. Either I get him too slow, which turns into a terribly uncomfortable ride, or I let him get too fast, which can be kind of entertaining but for the fact that when I go too fast, I tend to really go too fast! Never a good thing in an amateur western pleasure class. Thanks to a tremendous amount of training, patience, persistence and (yes) thought, I really began to get it when schooling for a recent horse show. Four lessons in a row leading up to the show, I really began to nail it. I truly began to feel the right pace, the right softness, and the ability to ride and show a great lope. Warming up for my first class, I was a little shaky at the start but pulled myself together to be ready when the gate swung open. We jogged in, things felt great, and then the judge asked for a lope. I honestly had the worst relapse of brain freeze I have ever experienced when I asked Country to lope. It was truly awful. So slow he actually broke to the trot (twice) 302 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

and I sat up on his back flopping around like a fish, arms and legs flailing. I kept thinking “Oh, no, this is bad … I should fix it,” but didn’t. My brain, and thus my thought process, was simply frozen, and I didn’t do a whole lot better on the reverse. We placed last in the class, and I could only shake my head at my trainer, admitting it had been pretty bad. While I knew it was a complete mental lapse that made it awful, I was truly angry at myself for allowing it. All summer long, my rides had gotten better and I had been getting progressively better in overcoming my mental blocks. Why had I regressed so badly? Kicking myself and getting mad (at myself) is a pretty normal thing for me, so when I went into the dressing room to change back to street clothes, I began grumbling and muttering to myself about how awful that ride had been. Suddenly though, a foreign thought occurred to me—why not just quit? After all, I’ve been doing this for so long, and there really was no excuse for my not getting it. Why not just give it up? Dang it, that scared me! I have always been very hard on myself, often to a fault, but the thought of quitting is one which has never occurred to me. When it did, I actually did a double take, shook my head, and literally sat down for a moment to let my brain stop for a moment. What? Quit? Before I even gave this revelation the time of day, I made an ultimatum with myself. I was going to either do this right from that point on, or I wasn’t going to do it at all. Quitting was simply not an option, but I was sick and tired of being mad at myself for making silly errors and letting my horse and his trainer down. Not only was it not fair to them, it was selling myself short for all the time, money, blood, sweat, and tears I’ve put into this to get this far. More thought, more beating myself up about the whole thing, and later that evening I finally came to terms with what the problem truly was. For as long as I have been showing—and this goes back as far as the early days in 4-H—I have always been afraid I wasn’t good enough. Good enough for what? To win? Probably. I’ve always looked at my competitor’s horses and thought


Times For Amateurs how much better they were than my own, and how I’d just have to settle for lower ribbons. So now I find myself with the best horse I will likely ever own, and I am afraid I’m not good enough for him. It occurred to me that all the hours of training would never be enough to overcome that fear unless I was willing to let go of it.

only by sounds in the round pen and his instructor, Billy can ride the walk, jog and lope, reverse directions and back his horse in a straight line. The more I watched the more I realized how important body language and just downright confidence was going to make the picture come together.

So who cares if I’m not good enough? I guess I’m the only one, huh? The judges certainly don’t care, they just see the horse and rider together, and if I don’t think I’m good enough, that barrier is always going to stand in the way of making us the best pair we can be. Part of my ability to break this down into manageable pieces has been the opportunity I have had this past year to take riding lessons away from the training barn, and with a therapeutic instructor. Those readers who know me and have seen me off my horse know that I walk kind of funny, and most know that is because I was born with a mild case of cerebral palsy. No, I’ve never mentioned it before in this forum simply because I never thought it was important or vital to share. But coming to terms with my abilities, and pushing them past previous limits, has really given me a chance to become more introspective in myself, and I think that is translating to my being more willing to say, yet again, who cares?

So my “leap of faith” moment came after watching Billy ride a few months ago. I asked my instructor if I could take my lesson blindfolded. Thrilled I’d even consider it, she readily agreed (have no fear, I was helmeted and in a round pen) and the next few rides were, literally, amazing. To ask a horse to go straight, yet feeling him go straight are two entirely different concepts. Or at least they were to me. The feeling of being out of control, and the fear that was keeping me from giving in a little with my seat and legs, sitting softer, really came to the surface at the lope, yet I wasn’t afraid to push on and ride through it all. After several lessons blindfolded, my therapy instructor switched me to a different horse, a retired western pleasure horse, and we began focusing on using what I’ve learned about myself as a rider to translate into myself as an effective horseman in pulling that whole picture together. That, coupled with the lessons I’ve come to learn the hard way, has cemented my resolve to keep working harder, to let go of my fear of failure, and to allow myself to be a better, more effective rider.

Riding as therapy has been a whole new barrel of fun for me, because I’ve been able to concentrate—for the first time in a very long time—on my effectiveness/ ineffectiveness as a rider as a whole. I’ve always been so focused in trying to perform up to my horse’s standards that I’d really lost sight of myself and which muscles and bones twist which way in the saddle, and how those twists and tensions impact the horse’s way of going. I’ve had the added bonus of watching Billy, who takes a lesson typically scheduled just before mine. Billy is completely blind and has a number of physical limitations that would keep most people far away from a horse, let alone in the saddle. Watching Billy ride softly and confidently really blew me away at first, and not just at the walk. Guided

My experiences, insight, and downright determination have really started to pay off in spades. The fact that the thought of quitting scared me is something I take pride in knowing, because I know I could never quit. I am all the more anxious to move forward in my training with Country to apply my new sense of “get it done the right way” and have even more fun with every ride and every class. I keep thinking back to that children’s book, The Little Engine That Could, and how the catch phrase was “I think I can, I think I can.” Yep, I think I can, and better yet, I know I can. ■ OCTOBER 20 09 | 303


This Horse Show Gig Of Mine by Tom Theisen

It seems as though I have a little spare time now, so I thought it might be interesting to jot down some of my fondest and funniest memories of years gone by. I’ll share some of them with you each month until I am back in the saddle again—hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. Let’s start with a broad overview of my training life to put the future stories in context. Back in the mid-1970s, I was scared to death of horses and ponies, but wanted one desperately. I would stare at them endlessly from the “safe” side of the fence and watch their every move. For hours and hours at a time, I would watch how they interacted and communicated with each other. I came to the realization that with each other, they were firm but fair. They would briskly make their point, establish their individual role/space and move on, no grudges. It was so simple, so methodical, so beautiful, really. As I started to think like a horse and appreciate their predictable behavior, I ventured through the fence into their territory. Sure enough, I found they responded to my body language pretty much in the same way that they responded to each other’s. How cool is that? To this day, I believe in that firm but fair approach. I try to never lose my temper and certainly, I am not going to hold a grudge against an animal. The early ‘80s were a very inspirational, competitive time in Michigan. We had incredible youth riders who went

304 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

on to become some of today’s most successful trainers. Riders like Lisa Jo Marsh (White) and Carmelle Moller (Rooker) turned me into a professional spectator. They always turned in a great performance, and they both went on to win National Champion Saddle Seat and Stock Seat equitation titles—so impressive! Lisa Monahan was just a little girl whose dad was a professional trainer. She was an amazing rider even then, often competing in the open division, giving the trainers a run for their money. Shawn Rooker was involved with Morgan horses, since his dad was a trainer also. Shawn and I actually both went to Swan Valley High School, but I only really knew him as a scrappy kid (sorry, Shawn) who could, would, and did ride anything, and ride the hell out of it. Some things never change! All of these are amazingly talented people who inspired me greatly to become a professional trainer. But if I had to name the top three people who influenced me, they would be: Amy Hebert, Margaret Spensley, and Tim Shea. Amy had an 80-stall facility near my parents and hired me as a stall cleaner/groom; she also took me to my first U.S. National horse show. Margaret Spensley is a grand lady who was the first person that gave me a chance and actually paid me to train horses for her. She had horses with me for about 25 years and I will be forever grateful to her. More than anyone else, I would say Tim Shea is directly responsible for my becoming a trainer. In 1983, I leased a Half-Arabian gelding named Oak Ridge Hombre


This Horse Show Gig Of Mine to a friend of mine, Sharon Johnston (whose family had horses in training at Shea Stables), with the stipulation that he was to be kept in training with Tim for that year. I figured the worst that could happen was that I’d get a finished horse back. The transformation that took place over the next few months was magical. Oak Ridge Hombre went from being a cute brown horse to reserve champion in English pleasure at the Ohio Buckeye that year. Huh? What? Amazing! I decided then and there that this would be the way I would make my living. Was it a smart choice? Yes, I wish everyone could do what they love in life and get paid for it. My dad still cannot believe that people pay me to ride horses in circles, and yet he and my mother have made it abundantly clear that they are proud of my decision and me. Oh, and by the way, Oak Ridge Hombre went on that year to be named 1983 Canadian National Champion Half-Arabian English Pleasure with Tim Shea and 1983 U.S. National Reserve Champion Half-Arabian English pleasure AOTR with Sharon Johnston. Not bad for a horse I got by trading up my $400 gelding, but that is a story for another day. It was the day after that Buckeye show that I began to make a plan for my career. As I sit here in beautiful Chatfield, Minn., I look back over the last 25 years and wonder, ‘How did I get from there to here?’ One thing I learned at a very young age was to not be afraid of risks or change. There were so many opportunities at that time and I felt like I needed to go where they were. I traveled with a good friend, Lori Carter, to the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show the following February with the sole purpose of finding a great trainer to apprentice with. While everyone else was enjoying the sunny Arizona weather and the beautiful horses being presented, I was looking for my future boss and mentor. By day two of the show, I had found the type of trainer I was looking for. Time and time again, Gordon Potts entered the ring in every division imaginable and, repeatedly, his horses were well-presented, confident, and well-trained—and they were winning! I nervously approached him about a job and he hired me right away. It turned out he was, and still is, very interested in cultivating young trainers’ talents. He is always very open and willing to share his knowledge. Twenty five years later, he is still winning in most every division on

a national level, which is so impressive to me. I have actually worked for Gordon three different times, in a different capacity each time. Back in 1988, I had the great privilege of working for Vicki Humphrey. She shared a philosophy with me that I believe she learned at school: “Training is a methodical application of directional pressure.” It is so simple, so basic, and yet, so very true. Any time I get into a jam, to this day, I go back to that simple philosophy. Vicki, a true friend of mine, taught me years ago that to get the most out of a horse, they have to enjoy what they are doing. That is our job as their guidance counselor: to entertain them and make them think it was all their idea. I always brag to everyone about Vicki’s natural abilities with a horse and how she has a fun yet effective way of handling them. She gave me some wonderful breaks in the business by letting me show some of her best horses, and I will be forever grateful to her on so many levels. White Rock Farms, in Cedar Hill, Texas, hired me in 1990 and I was thrilled with the opportunity to work with Stanley White Jr. I was always a fan of his horses and how they seemed to literally carry themselves around the ring. With Stan, it was all about movement and balance, and to this day, I cannot stand watching a western pleasure horse when they are not truly performing the gaits asked for. Venture Farms was home to me before they actually became Venture Farms. My friend Trace Moffatt was working at a small farm called Morning Mist Training Center in LaCrosse, Ind., but was also engaged to a true Texas girl who wanted nothing to do with living in the North. It was very unfortunate for him (the geography, not the girl) but an amazing opportunity for me! He put in a good word and I was hired quickly so that he could get back home and start his own training facility in Argyle, Texas. Morning Mist was Joan Abbett’s dream, and as she would describe herself, she was a hard-working farm girl who knew what it took to make a dream a reality. Joan’s daughter, Susan, loved the horses and was quite involved as well. What fun times those were for all of us—we bought horses, trained them and started showing them on a National level. Just three short years later the Abbetts expanded and bought Venture Farms in Pilot Point, Texas. It was a big change for all of us—we went from a small 13-stall operation

This Horse Show Gig Of Mine to a gorgeous 100+-stall facility. The eight years I spent working for them were some of the best years of my life, and they are like family to me. I am proud to have prepared both Susan Abbett (now Johnson) and her husband, Roger Johnson, to win their first national championships. Next up was another stint at The Brass Ring, with my mentor Gordon Potts. The biggest change was the addition of his new wife Wendy. Where do I begin? Wendy and I hit it off immediately; I think it was in the first week of working together that I decided we would be friends for life whether she wanted to be or not. She has a natural gift in that she truly feels what a horse is doing and can read what a horse is thinking. It is uncanny—she can get on one of my horses and in less than one lap of the arena, tell me what I need to work on, and even more than that, she can tell me why the horse is reacting to me in a specific way. The biggest lesson I learned from Wendy is to not “over think” what you are doing; just listen—the horse will tell you what needs to be worked on. We were quite the formidable team during those two amazing years, it was a team of five consisting of Gordon, Wendy, myself, J.T. Keller and CJ Gleason. From there, I moved to Atlanta, Ga. to work at another start-up called Iron Horse Farms, owned by Scott and Mitzi Marshall. Many of my fondest memories at Iron Horse involve their daughter Brittany. She was a 13-and-under rider who had yet to win her first regional championship. Brittany was a great student who not only went on to win several regional championships but many national championships as well. She has nerves of steel and the ability to back it up. I am a true believer that things not only happen for a reason, but that they happen how and when they are supposed to. I have been aware of the Conways and the beautiful horses they have bred, trained, and shown, and I was excited to join the team here. With the health scares I am having, could I live in a better location than Rochester, Minn., home of the Mayo Clinic? Could it

be mere coincidence that three of our clients/friends are doctors at Mayo? Lori Conway is the ultimate caregiver who I could not have lived without during the past challenging month. It doesn’t get any better than Peter Conway in my book—he is a true man of his word whose sense of humor has been a godsend to me lately. Once again, I followed my gut and took a chance making the move to Minnesota, and having been here for nine months now I can honestly say that I love it! I’m really missing the daily working of horses, my true love, but the quality of horses and the direction we are heading here at Conway Arabians is what is keeping me motivated right now. The combination of Tom Theisen, Lori Conway, Peter Conway and Anna Conway Zaffke is still relatively new, with this wrench of illness thrown in as an extra challenge. Only time and history will tell for sure, but I’m seeing great things in our future! ■


Your Community ... Your Industry ... Your Times Trowbridge’s, Ltd. Fall Open House—A Combination Event This year, Trowbridge’s, Ltd. combined their September 19, 2009, open house and outreach celebration with two other important events. The first was the AHA Registry Commission’s well-attended, biennial open breeders’ forum. The second was a fundraiser, all proceeds of which went to Youthlight, a youth mentoring program and faith-based charity headquartered in Connecticut. Youthlight offers comprehensive, animal-based mentoring to autistic and other mentally and psychologically challenged young people under the age of 18.

“Youthlight is now using Arabian horses in its program,” Mary Trowbridge explains. “The fundraiser’s centerpiece was a barbecue. We were extremely pleased by the more than 260 people who came to our open three-cornered event this year, and by their interest in the Youthlight program. We had unity advertised the day within the Arabian community u and ue and invited local people, as well. The barbecue afternoon finished up with a big bonfire!”


An Amateur Point Of View The View From The Rail Youth Nationals 2009 by Russ Vento On October 11, Arabian Horse Times lost a great friend when amateur

horseman and longtime columnist Russ Vento died. With the current issue in production, Russ had already filed his Youth Nationals comments, which appear here. As usual, they reflect his love of Arabians, and his commitment to the horses and people that make up our community.

The Divisions

Country And English. For the past year, I’ve been complaining that I thought the horses in the country division, both purebred Earlier this year, commenting on the death of a friend, Russ offered thoughts worth and Half-Arabian, were remembering—words poignant now, but especially appropriate when thinking of our being overridden. It young riders, their horses, their experiences and their lives: wasn’t a pretty class to watch. However, at Youth “Every moment is a memory. You don’t think back on them until it’s too late, but Nationals, the country everything you do in your life—every horse show, every walk in the park, every time pleasure horses were soft, you get up and walk to the barn—every moment that you spend with an animal or a they were covering the person is a memory you’ll have for the future. Time is what is important.” ground, and they weren’t overridden; they were – Russ Vento, 2009 presented in a proud manner, very representative The first thing to say about the 2009 Youth Nationals of an Arabian or Half-Arabian country pleasure horse. is that the kids are amazing. I probably say that every As a parent, an amateur and part of a training farm, year, but the great thing is that it is true, and each year I think that any outside person looking at country their performances seem to surpass those of the past. To pleasure would have found it absolutely beautiful to see. me, that is some of the best news in the industry, and it should thrill the daylights out of all of us. On the other hand, it appeared to me that the English division, again both purebred and Half-Arabian, was I don’t mean that our young riders just know how to suffering. Yes, it is the most popular class at the show— ride. Their horsemanship skills are excellent—but so is the stands are most full for the high-powered English the level of their confidence in competition. That was horses, as kids from all the divisions want to see those apparent across the board, from the walk/trot kids to the classes. My misgivings are about how they are being ‘fence riders’ (17- and 18-year-olds in their last year before presented. The finals are usually later in the evening, and aging into the amateur division). They show their horses with the music blaring, the young riders go into the arena and they are in control, and especially in the walk/trot at the height of excitement. In that atmosphere, it appears ranks, the trainers and parents have figured out how to as if there is a lack of control, with everyone going too mount the riders correctly for their size and skill. Because fast, switching leads, and looking, in my opinion, chaotic. of that, the kids are so comfortable that they are able to The show commission is aware of the problem and trying learn and show more easily, and their confidence comes to change that atmosphere to best represent the Arabian out in their performances. There were two dozen or more and Half-Arabian English division. As owners, trainers, in some of those walk/trot classes, and they were focused, and parents, I think we need to understand and support strong and competitive. If the judges could have awarded some improvement here. I’m not saying eliminate the a top 15, there would have been at least that many excitement—a good English class is inherently exciting— deserving exhibitors. but to reinstate the control that is fundamental to the

308 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


An Amateur Point Of View division. Maybe if the cuts took place in the evenings and the finals during a morning or afternoon session, we could maintain some healthy excitement, but eliminate the frenzy. Finally, watching the classes in the discipline this year, I think the time has come that we are ready for a new country pleasure class. I’m not sure what you’d call it, but it should be something where the horses would be judged specifically for their softness and carriage. They might be allowed only a 12-oz. shoe and one pad, or something of that nature, but “feet” isn’t the issue: Presentation is. Maybe it should be done only in the youth division, or maybe it would be amateur too, but I don’t think it should be a class for trainers. Instead, it would be something that maybe a beginner or novice rider could get in, and to make it work, we have to get together and stick strong and true to the specs of these classes. I think it would do our breed a lot of good. I say all of this as a real supporter of country pleasure. It’s my favorite; I’ve been a national champion in it and so has my daughter. I’m passionate about it, and in my opinion, it is very important that we get back to its specifications (actually, it is important that we do that in all the divisions, but to me it is most important in country). A new division of country would help us do that. Hunter. The hunters both purebred and Half-Arabian were incredibly impressive. I’m amazed at the level of perfection and quality I saw. It was not just about the horses, but about the unity of the horse and rider combinations. That level of perfection had to have been both a delight and a challenge for the judges, as it is not easy to pick just 10 out a class where 15 or more could easily wear the ribbons—and selecting a champion and a reserve was probably even harder. Western. Western too was exceptional. I talk about the English horses and how they hold their carriage at speed, but the western division is no less an achievement. It is every bit as difficult to do all those gaits so slowly that any fault or loss of control is fatally apparent. It says a lot about the type of horses we breed, and about the capability of our trainers and riders to get in that frame and to hold it for a 20 to 25-minute class. At any horse show, there is talk about how the western horses look too much like Quarter Horses, or how they’re being picked on too much or are too backed out of the bridle, but I have to say, at

Youth Nationals, the horses were not any of those things. They were soft and going forward. Their trainers have paid attention to what the judges have wanted, and these horses are a great representation of the Arabian and Half-Arabian western horse. Equitation. Equitation is about the skill of our riders, and given the talent of the horses and riders in our breed, there is often a temptation for exhibitors to take advantage of too many of the opportunities offered at this multi-faceted horse show. It is very hard for a horse to do, say, pleasure JOTR and JTR, plus driving or western or showmanship, and equitation. For some, that could mean as many as nine classes with two or three cuts in each. I didn’t see as much of that at Youth Nationals this year. True, that means numbers in equitation may have dropped some, but what it signaled in most cases was that young riders brought separate horses for the performance divisions and equitation. That seemed to reflect not only in the horse’s performance, but in the kids’ presentation and their level of confidence as well. The level of equitation was strong. In the past, we have had Half-Arabian equitation, and now we have purebred too, and some of the riders had horses in both divisions. I think the two divisions were about equal to each other, as the numbers were strong in each and so were the performances. As an example of how good our riders are, I heard though the grapevine that the hunter judges said the walk/trot riders in hunter equitation were so talented that they were ready for a bigger challenge, and it was time for them to do a pattern. Since we get outside hunt seat judges who carry hunt seat equitation cards, I think that is a huge compliment. Across The Board. I was very pleased to see the way the JTR classes and the JOTR classes were conducted. The two different judging panels made it very clear that they wanted everyone to ride and show their horses to their best within the specs of the classes. Just because you placed or won in the JOTR didn’t mean you went on automatically to win in the JTR. Each panel of judges treated every class as though every rider that came through the gate had a clean slate; there was no prejudging from the other JOTR or JTR class. The competition was so good that you had to really work each and every time you rode into the ring. This was great because it put every rider on an even playing field, and I appreciate the judges for their fairness. OCTOBER 20 09 | 309

An Amateur Point Of View Other Observations

in multiple arenas, holding gates to give the riders time to prepare when classes are back to back. They also are excellent about keeping us informed as to what is going on between both rings and when there was a hiccup. If you know you’re going to have a 15-minute hold before class such-and-such, you’re not preparing too early or getting excited or rushing—and I can’t say how important it is, especially to a child, to be aware of the unexpected and not to rush.

As might be apparent, I found very little to criticize at Youth Nationals. One situation caught my attention, however, and my thoughts apply to us as owners, parents, trainers and youth riders. The Albuquerque fairgrounds has all kinds of indoor and outdoor work areas for us to use. When we enter a paddock or ring, we should all be more aware of what is going on there. If children are preparing for the next class, we should always give them the benefit of the doubt and be courteous in the This year, as in others, I was reminded that Albuquerque middle as well as on the rail.

We owe a lot of thanks to her, the alter the schedule to allow more sleep time—but local show commission and the city of Albuquerque. I think ordinances prohibit using the outside loud speakers after everything went smoothly, and it was a good, positive a certain hour of the night. As we all need those barn experience for everybody. announcements, that situation is something that can’t be changed, or at least, not easily changed. May I just say that given how good the Youth Show Commission is, I’m not at all surprised to find that they had already researched that issue. While I’m on the subject of the Youth Nationals Show Commission, let me just keep complimenting them. The schedule at Youth is so well handled that it merits special attention. At some national shows, we’ve had half a dozen different schedules; at Youth Nationals, I think we had two. They work hard to help the kids who are showing 310 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

One of the keys to the success of Youth Nationals is that the members of show management talk to each other; they walk around and listen, and are very involved and hands on. They work together. I think what we have to do as an industry, and I can’t stress this enough, is work together—we need that within our breed, as well as within our disciplines. As horse people who want to do what is best for the Arabian and Half-Arabian horse, we need to build on Albuquerque and show that kind of respect and commitment everywhere. ■
