OKLAHOMA, OKAY!

by Linda White We have not checked with the Associated Press, but it stands to reason that in 2006 and 2007, as changes were being explored, Arabian Horse Association’s (AHA) moving the U.S. Nationals to Tulsa, Okla., was probably the subject most discussed by North America’s Arabian horse crowd. The next year, full of hope and positive expectations, they brought their finest Arabians to the new Oklahoma venue. Tulsa, Okla., may not be a glamorous destination, but it ranks right up there among the Midwest’s most prosperous cities. It made sense that the U.S. National Show Commission and AHA’s show officials would include Oklahoma in their search for a more central location, with a facility that could accommodate the huge national show, and ultimately, could become the horse show’s permanent headquarters. Oklahoma City’s horse show facility was booked solid, but Tulsa’s large complex had the necessary dates open. Tulsa was selected to become the U.S. National Show’s new address. The city’s Expo Square facility appeared to be nearly ideal, and facility management was eager to oblige the show commission’s every request. Tulsa is only 60 miles from the exact center of the continental United States, and the local community, numbering close to one million, was delighted to welcome Tulsa’s largest equine event, ever. Glen True, who will be the show’s barn manager for the second year in a row, made an observation after the 2008 event that put everything into perspective. “We’ve heard some complaints about the facility’s huge size. Tulsa’s Expo Square is a very large facility, but it needs to be, for us to present so many horses over a 10-day event. It wasn’t so bad, once people got their bearings.” Show Commission Chair Bill Hughes agrees. “There were mixed reactions to the 2008 show. Going in, there were so many things everybody perceived were going to be the show’s biggest issues. Those things ended up not being as major as people had originally thought. For the most part, while we smoothed out some of the rough spots, the exhibitors were very patient with the facility, the AHA staff, the Show Commission, and all of our volunteers.”

The Expo Center is also the home of the Oklahoma State Fair, numerous livestock, trade and industrial shows, and smaller equine events. As soon as the papers were signed, Expo Square’s managers scrambled to ensure that the huge complex was tailored to suit the Arabian national show’s ever-growing needs. “The entire staff at Expo Square was, and continues to be, fantastic to work with,” Julie Stewart, AHA’s National Event Coordinator, says. “Jennifer Haddix and Gerald Young, our two 2008 Expo Square Facility Event Coordinators, made the first year very smooth. Even the maintenance guys were wonderful, and were always available when we needed them.” As AHA’s primary fundraiser, the 2008 U.S. National Arabian and Half-Arabian Championships rang the cash register for the organization, with the show’s entries totaling a respectable 1,860.

Moving Right Along Bill Hughes cites another ongoing concern. “Moving to a new facility is most challenging when it comes to creating a financially responsible budget that is realistic.” In addition to his role as Show Commission Chair and 2007 and 2008 U.S. Nationals manager, Bill Hughes Hughes is a registered judge and is Director of Equine Sciences at Cal Poly University, as well as the W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center at Cal Poly, Pomona. He has tirelessly served the Arabian breed, and the people who surround it, in numerous capacities since 1961. “Expenses for things like decorators, catering, and shipping all changed because we were now changing vendors,” he explains. “The bid evaluation process for each sector of the show is time consuming, but absolutely

necessary. It ensures that the show benefits from the highest quality services and products, at the most reasonable cost.” Since planning began in 2006, the show commission developed a good idea of what a realistic budget should be. Show officials also hoped that Tulsa’s central location would attract a greater number of enthusiastic exhibitors. That was not precisely the case, but they did bring their very best animals to the new venue, in numbers that fell just short of Albuquerque’s previous year’s total. Tulsa’s success in wooing the show to town translated into a gigantic financial bonus for the city. Exhibitors’ needs, added to their patronage of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of local businesses, enriched the local economy by untold millions of dollars. “The Tulsa Convention and Visitors Bureau has been instrumental in the move to Tulsa,” Stewart says. “This group has assisted AHA in everything from selecting hotels to soliciting show sponsorships. In 2008, the Tulsa Convention and Visitors Bureau helped bring in more than $100,000 in show sponsorships from the host community!” “Moving the show has presented our breed to a whole new audience,” Hughes adds. “Most people think of Tulsa as a cowboy town, so bringing our beautiful horses here for nine days gave us time to showcase the Arabian breed’s talent, diversity and athleticism to the people of Tulsa. Last year, a lot of local people came out, just to walk around the barns and commercial exhibits, checking out what we are all about. When time for the show rolled around, the community had been hearing about the Arabian Nationals for several years. It was time for them to see just what made the Arabian breed unique.”

Accentuate The Positive Not everyone was negative about the new venue. Longtime exhibitor Marikate Matthews had some thoughts. “Tulsa ... well, I heard so much complaining before we even got there, that it was hard to have an open mind. Nevertheless, I have to tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed it. Overall, Tulsa proved to be quite satisfactory.

got very slick, and we couldn’t get our horses across it. Expo Square management put down mulch, which made for better footing, but the mulch absorbed the water, so it couldn’t drain off. The result was a big mess. I will probably request to be stabled there again next year, but I felt like I was closer to my hotel than I was to the rest of the showgrounds.”

“There were plenty of practice arenas to work performance horses, our stabling was very good, and our location on the grounds could not have been better,” Matthews says. “We did have a lot of cold wind, but obviously, we cannot control the wind! Tulsa and its people were very friendly, and we had no trouble finding some nice restaurants. You know, when it comes right down to it, if you are having a good show, your surroundings always start to look better.” “We were stabled in the QuikTrip Building. I really appreciated the climate control system, because you didn’t have to keep the horses blanketed. The [building] had two big warm-up rings, which was very convenient, but there were problems that will have to be addressed—especially related to the building’s distance from everything else. When we had a hard rain, the big parking lot f looded. The wet concrete

A Stable Influence Stabling was one of exhibitors’ major concerns, prior to the 2008 show. “The stabling turned out to be better than people anticipated,” Glen True says. “There were not as many complaints as I expected. The people with larger horses wanted bigger stalls, so some of them took out partitions and made two stalls into one big one. “The stalls are perfectly adequate. They are the same size as the temporary stalls we have used at U.S. Nationals for years. Tulsa can provide about 2,000 stalls, but we had to set almost 1,000 additional temporary stalls, as we did in Louisville. For 1,900 horses, we need between 2,900 to 3,100 stalls. As in Louisville, the facility puts in dirt over the concrete floors, packs and rolls it, and we then set in the stalls. Every barn features electricity at each stall. “The electrical system was one of the best I’ve ever seen,” True adds. “Each stall was hooked up to a circuit breaker. Electrical conduit ran across the backs of the stalls, but nobody chewed through it. In fact, the horses paid no attention to it.” The QuikTrip Center, where many of the halter horses were stabled in 2008, is by far the largest structure in the Expo Square complex. “The building is so long that the horses aren’t crammed in,” observes True. “The QuikTrip is across a wide parking lot from the other buildings, but nobody seemed to have any trouble getting from their QuikTrip stabling to the arenas. There are two convenient routes to get from one to the others. Most of the halter people liked the QuikTrip so well that they requested being stabled there again in 2009.” “There were stalls in practically every building,” Show Manager Tony Conner offers. “If there wasn’t an arena or a commercial exhibit, there was stabling, and every building had an adequate number of fire exits: one every 30 feet. Only two buildings had closed sides, and those were like garage doors that raised up quickly, if a quick escape was needed.” “Some of the complimentary remarks we heard included how clean the facility was, including the wash racks,” Event Coordinator Julie Stewart says. “They cleaned and disinfected the wash rack right outside the barn office, at

least twice a day. The bathrooms were always clean, and the workers were respectful of the horses when they were empting trashcans and sweeping. Many exhibitors told us they were asked at local stores and restaurants if they were with the Arabian show, and that the responses were always welcoming.” The Built Ford Tough Livestock Complex has roughly 700,000 square feet of stabling area, and multiple arenas, including a 150’ x 300’ main show arena, and a 90’ x 230’ adjacent practice arena. There are covered wash racks and covered access to stabling areas, but permanent seating for only 2,750. “We have also added another large work ring next to the Ford Arena,” Bill Hughes says. “Last year, we only had one work ring, which was dedicated to the working western exhibitors. This year, we will have two work rings: one for Mustang and one for Ford. This will make it easier to warm up horses for the Ford Arena classes.” “Would a move to the Ford Arena be better?” Jochens wonders. “The main ring is much bigger, and there are nearly 3,000 spectator seats, if we need them. We usually have very few spectators, other than horse people. Anyway, seating is not our highest priority. Sure, we would like to have lots of spectators, but our exhibitors and their horses come first.”

OKLAHOMA, OKAY!

Speaking Commercially “You needed a golf cart to get to the commercial exhibits,” one commercial exhibitor bemoaned. We heard other trades people’s complaints that their buildings were too far away from the QuikTrip building for the many potential shoppers stabled there to make the trek across the vast parking lot. “The Exchange Building itself was fine, but landscaping and hedges between it and the barns, arenas and other buildings discouraged horse show folks from stopping by,” another commercial vendor told us. “Any local, would-be shoppers were few,” the vendor added, “because they were prohibited from using the big adjacent parking area, due to the horse traffic from the QuikTrip to other buildings. Buyer turnout was so poor that we didn’t even make our expenses.” “The commercial exhibits building was built under our direction, and completed in time for the 2008 horse show,” Tony Conner counters. The hardworking

Kentuckian has shouldered the task of managing the 2009 U.S. National Championships. He has been managing horse shows, including this one, for a long time, so he is no stranger to creative problem solving. “There are plenty of amenities in the Exchange Building, where the commercial exhibits are, and it is close to the Pavilion and the Ford Truck Building. To get to either from across the parking lot, you have to go right by the Exchange Building. “In 2008, parking was prohibited in one of the routes across the parking lot, from the KwikTrip Building to the barns and arenas, because we almost had some serious accidents. This year, parking will be permitted there, but that means there will be security there 24-7, day and night, stopping cars to allow horses to cross. We also plan to give the commercial exhibits higher visibility through signage, more announcements, and radio advertising.”

Bigger Is Better The historic Pavilion, built in 1931, is a charming art deco structure, but many of last year’s exhibitors complained about its small show ring, which were workable for halter classes, but inadequate for English performance and driving classes. The Pavilion did get a major facelift in 2001, and its excellent lighting and cutting-edge sound system are welcome pluses, but its 85’ x 185’ show ring made things chancy for many performance exhibitors.

224A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


OKLAHOMA, OKAY!

“There is a lot I like about the new facility, but that small main ring in the Pavilion is almost a deal-breaker,” one performance trainer told us. “If the Pavilion ring were larger, you could work with the other negatives, but that size is inadequate. It may work for halter classes, but there is no room for a center ring setup, and when three or four performance horses are on the rail abreast, they pass by so close to the judges that it seems unsafe.” “The size of the Pavilion’s main ring was one of the negatives we heard most about,” Bill Hughes acknowledges. “Prior to last year’s show, at our request, the facility removed several feet from the walkway around the arena, but there isn’t much else we can do to make the arena larger. This year, we are going to utilize the permanent railing instead of the paneling we put up. That alone will add nearly six inches, all around. While it may not sound like much, it will add a little more arena space, and will be more pleasing, visually.” He glances down at the list of exhibitors’ complaints in his hand. “Many exhibitors approached us about adding more warm-up space in the Ford Truck Arena; so, we will have dirt put all the way down the walls, running from the entrance of the warm-up area, to the warm-up arena behind Mustang Arena. “One comment we heard a lot during the show last year was that there isn’t really anywhere for trainers and coaches to stand on the rail near the in-gate in the Ford Truck Arena. To eliminate this issue, we are moving the fence in the in-gate area about 15 feet into the arena.

water draining into the sewer system made us cut back drastically on the water available to exhibitors in the QuikTrip. This resulted in long lines, waiting to use the wash racks. The Expo Square staff is working on getting approval for more wash racks, which will help alleviate this problem in 2009.”

“Another negative we heard about was the number of wash racks available for the number of horses stabled in the QuikTrip Center. Originally, we constructed four large, portable wash racks for use during the show. Environmental Protection Agency concerns about the

SEP TEMBER 20 09 | 225A

Tulsa’s version of skyboxes, modeled after Louisville’s popular mini-marketing and hospitality suites, was not a universal hit. “My skybox was so far up—so far away— that it was a worthless expense,” one patron complained to us. “Nobody was going to climb up all those steps to get to it. Up there, the show ring was so far away, you could barely read the back numbers. Plus, our box was under the big screen, so we could not see the images on it. The larger skyboxes cost $11,000, and most people who paid for those never used them. What a shame.”

On Re-Scheduling Scheduling

“We have changed the big screen’s location so that there will be no skybox behind it,” Conner assures us. “In Louisville, the sky boxes were wonderful, and very popular, but the only place to put them, here in Tulsa, was the Pavilion’s concourse on the upper level. We did the best we could, given what we had to work with. We have had complaints, but many people used and enjoyed their skyboxes, and we have already rented quite a few for this year.”

“The Show Commission and AHA staff worked diligently with the APAHA to re-vamp the schedule, to make it both more exhibitor-friendly and to add spectator excitement,” Hughes states. “One change was to go back to having the premier halter classes in the evening sessions, the final two nights in the Pavilion.”

226A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

“All the halter classes were in one building, and the performance classes were in another building,” a longtime exhibitor protested. “So, the halter people never got to see the performance classes, and vice versa. All the halter classes were finished by Wednesday night or Thursday, so the halter people packed up and left early, never even seeing the performance finals. The scheduling needs to be re-tooled,” she added, indignant.

Show Manager Conner elaborates on Hughes’s response. “The scheduling we have come up with this year is what the professionals requested. Based on what they have asked for, we are moving more of the big performance classes into the Ford Truck Arena. In there on the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there will be classes from morning until night. The show will start early and end late. The halter finals, and some of the performance finals, will be held in the Pavilion later in the week, but classes don’t begin in the Pavilion until Tuesday morning, and those will be halter classes. Meanwhile, the Ford Arena will be running solid with performance classes.”


OKLAHOMA, OKAY!

Conner explains that the 2009 schedule has been designed to give every halter and performance exhibitor the fairest advantage possible. He highlights the junior and senior mare and stallion championships, adding, “On the second Friday evening, in the Pavilion, there will be three performance finals and the junior mare championship. Friday all day, youth judging will take place in the Ford Truck Arena. “The move to Tulsa fulfills the two most important changes we wanted to accomplish,” Conner says. “The first was having three full-blown, genuine show rings, and secondly, adding more work arenas, with each one covered to withstand the weather. In Louisville, exhibitors were always complaining about muddy practice rings. “The working western classes will be held in Mustang Arena, beginning the first Friday morning. The Sunday morning session is the only one scheduled that day, but in working western, with each horse working individually, classes can run really long. For example, reining begins in the Mustang Arena on Monday morning, but we are prepared to have it run well into the afternoon, and maybe even into Monday evening. We heard far fewer complaints from the working western trainers and exhibitors than we did from exhibitors in other disciplines.”

And Finally … “The first year was a learning experience for all of us,” Conner reflects. “The facility management, especially, had no real idea what was coming. Apparently, most of the western breeds spend less money on and at their horse shows and rodeos. Management was unprepared for the money the Arabian people would spend, for all the farms’ beautiful, spare-no-expense decorating of their hospitality areas and commercial displays, and for the Arabian people’s insistence on the best of everything for their horses, and for their horse show.” ■

You’ve seen their faces f under a variety of differentt hats, recognize their horses and could coould recite their wins. Yet, how well do you know your fellow exhibitors? Arabian horses clearly unite this group of diverse individuals from all walks of life and all parts of the country, but wouldn’t it be fun to get to know them a little better? We caught up with some of this year’s U.S. Nationals amateur contenders to find out some things you didn’t know—like what they can’t leave home when traveling to a show and where their favorite vacation spot is. Here is what they had to say.

Suzanne Acevedo

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Acevedo Arabians 1. I got into Arabian horses because … of there incredible dispositions, their love for people, and, of course, their great beauty and elegance. 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … being in the ring on a great western pleasure horse. 4. As an amateur I can show my Arabians in all breed competition locally to promote the Arabian horse. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the English division. 6. If my family wasn’t at a horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same. 7. Besides riding, I enjoy … traveling, snow skiing and politics. 8. The book I’m reading right now is … “Bungalow 2,” by Danielle Steel. 9. My favorite place to travel to is … the Caribbean.

Kelli Aguirre

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Showtime Training Center – Tish Kondas & Carla Schiltz 1. I got into Arabian horses because … they were easier and more natural than the American Saddlebred. My first horse was a 5-Gaited Saddlebred and the tail thing was a big deal for my mom. She wanted something that was beautiful, but all natural. 2. The one thing that I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … my clothes! According to my husband, I’m leaving him every time I go to a horse show—too many pieces of luggage. 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … the fun that I have with family and friends. I have always shared my love of horses with my parents and they have always been there to support me; and now, I have developed so many new friendships with people at the barn that the horse shows have become much more than the horses alone. 4. As an amateur I can talk to my friends about the intelligence, sensitivity and beauty of the Arabian horse for their families and their children. That is always my effort toward promoting the Arabian horse. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the Park division. Last year was my first time showing English and at my age, I felt like I came into a whole new world. I have always shown in the country division, so it was all new and exciting for me! Not to mention, of course, all of the work and tremendous support that I have gotten from Tish and Carla. If it weren’t for them, I definitely never would have attempted the English division. 6. If my daughter, Gabrielle, wasn’t at a horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same. She is and always has been my sidekick at the shows. She loves the horses and has a good eye. She is my sounding board and my encourager and my biggest supporter. 7. Besides riding, I enjoy … anything outdoors and I also do a lot of reading. I also love watching my son, Taylor, play lacrosse and football and Gabrielle play soccer, basketball and volleyball, and of course, her riding. 8. The book I’m reading right now is … “New Moon,” the second book of the “Twilight” series and Greg Iles “24 Hours.” 9. My favorite place to travel to is … our home in Georgia, on 4 1/2 acres on a 20,000-acre lake, with golf for my husband and tons of family time. 10. Something about me that would surprise people is … that I am really pretty shy.

Art Bartlett

Farm name/Trainer Affiliation: Vicki Humphrey Training Center 1. I got into Arabians because … of my wife, Elizabeth. I was born a city boy and had never been around horses very much. My wife bought an Arabian from the farm my sister was working at 20 years ago. She had a lot of fun showing her mare, but I wasn’t really interested at the time. A friend told me about competitive trail and endurance riding. I “borrowed” my wife’s mare for a local competitive trail ride and became hooked. This led to the purchase of a second Arabian so I wouldn’t have to utilize my wife’s horse. We now have 15 Arabians. 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go a horse show … Relax, breath, and listen to Vicki.

Amateur Snapshots 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … the competition. I’ve been involved in athletics all my life, and I’m a competitive person by nature. Arabians are a very special animal. By nature, most Arabians will give you 110%. The challenge is for you and your horse to become a “team.” Achieving that level of bonding is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. 4. As an amateur I can assist the younger generation in discovering the joy of showing or trail riding the amazing Arabian as a way to promote the Arabian horse. 5. If I had the time and energy, I would compete in the English Pleasure division. I have been attending Nationals for 15 years and watching from the rail; trainers like Vicki Humphrey and Tish Kondas make it look so easy. I turned 60 this year, and I’m dying to give it a try before this body wears out. 6. If my wife wasn’t at a horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same. My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary this year. We have shared our love for the Arabian for the last 20 years. I’m a blessed man to have been loved by both. 7. Besides riding, I enjoy … travel and photography. But I would ride every day if I could. 8. The book I’m reading right now is … “Common Sense,” by Glenn Beck. 9. My favorite place to travel … Durango, Colo., and Hawaii. 10. Something about me that would surprise people is … I’ve watched the movie “Transformers” 13 times.

Pam Bauerlein

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Halbrook Arabians – Midwest Training Centre 1. I got into Arabian horses because … I was blessed to have a family who was already in the Arabian business; I was raised in the barn. I count it an incredible privilege to have Arabians in my daily life. They’re good for the soul! 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … I will never take for granted that I am able to have and show these beautiful horses because of the love and support of my family. 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … the incredible camaraderie. The people at Midwest are so kind, generous, and gracious. I just feel so lucky to be a part of that team. My other favorite part (and they’re equally tied) is going in Ignacia BPA’s stall to give her loads of carrots, lots of love, and scratches just under her mane. I absolutely treasure the gift that God has given me in that mare. To spend quiet time with her in the stall is a wonderful respite from the busy schedule for both of us. 4. As an amateur I can help to promote the Arabian horse by bringing new people into the industry, and telling anyone who will listen just what wonderful family horses Arabians are. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the performance—primarily the English—division. 6. If my Mom, Don and Janey Morse, and David and Terry Anne, weren’t at a horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same. Again, none of this would be possible if not for my family in the stands, and the ones cheering me on from home. 7. Besides halter, I love to read in my free time (which I have very little of). 8. The books I’m reading right now are … “Atlas Shrugged,” by Ayn Rand, “The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus,” by John Cross, and “The Wedding,” by Nicholas Sparks. 9. My favorite place to travel to is … either Malibu or La Jolla. The ocean is such a nice break from the intense desert heat. The farm in Minnesota is also great—it’s Disney Land for horse people. 10. Something about me that would surprise people is … that I want to go to Stiletto Spy School—on second thought, this wouldn’t surprise anyone who knows me!

Michael Bills

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Shada Arabians – Jerry Schall 1. I got into Arabian horses ... my father was raised on a dairy farm, so as a child growing up in the city, my parents wanted us to learn good old-fashion values and a hard work ethic. We decided to buy some land and get a horse. That little land and a horse led us to a prominent breeder whom sold us a mare, with a breeding, a truck, a trailer, halters, saddles, then that first mare’s mother in foal, then a 50% syndicate interest in two of his show colts, which led me to my first horse show. Jeff Schall showed our yearling colt at Proctor, Minn. He was junior champion, and I was hooked. 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … the schedule. I am constantly checking the schedule to make sure I am on time and when I am showing. 3. My favorite part of the show is … the final review on the rail. The energy and excitement gets everyone into it. I truly hope this part of the show is not lost. Unfortunately, I see our industry jumping to extremes and going from excessive training methods, to excessive rules and regulations, to now complete overhaul of how our horses are presented. What ever happened to happy mediums? 4. As an amateur, I truly enjoy showing my own horses and for other breeders whom have the passion and desire to breed these beautiful creatures and exhibit them at some of the top amateur futurity programs like the Scottsdale Signature Futurity, Iowa Gold Star, and MN Breeders Fall Festival. It’s in these arenas that the small breeder has the opportunity to have their offspring judged and rewarded financially. 5. If I had the time and energy, I would love to compete in the English Pleasure division. Physically, with my knee injuries, I just can’t. 6. If my wife and son weren’t at the horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same; the show has different meaning. They get so excited when we do well that it makes it all the more fun. I think they get more nervous than I do before I go in the ring. My wife takes a personal affection to each horse I show, even if it’s not one that we own, regardless if we win or lose. 8. The book I’m reading right now it … “The Accidental Billionaires,” by Ben Mezrich. It’s the story of the guys that created Facebook. 9. My favorite place to travel is … Italy. We travel to Europe every summer, and I enjoy the different pace of life—its refreshing. 10. Something that would surprise people about me is … I am a huge soccer fan. I love soccer and coach my sons U-11 boys soccer team.

I forget something every time I go to a horse show (except for when Loren packs my show bag). 3. My favorite parts of a horse show are … showing and spending time with all my Showtime teammates and horse show friends! 4. As an amateur I can continue to work at the new non-profit therapeutic riding program, “Wings and Hooves,” which uses retired Arabian show horses as therapeutic riding horses. It is a great way to promote the versatility, intelligence, and kind nature of the Arabian horse while giving the animals a new job after their show careers have ended. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the Half-Arabian and purebred Show Hack divisions. 6. If Jonni Rocket, my mom, and my sister aren’t at a show with me, it just isn’t the same.

Marian Buehler

1. I got into Arabian horses because … back in the early 1970s there was an Arabian trainer by the name of Pat Scott. I boarded my horse at her stable and she got me into Arabians. That is where I met some of my best friends, Dr. Susan Read, Kathy White and Becky Boles, who are all still showing Arabians to this day. 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … I’m there to do the best job with my horses that I can, and it’s not all about winning. It’s about the relationship I have with my horses and the camaraderie I share with my friends. 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … showing my horses to their fullest potential, and doing it through natural horsemanship techniques. 4. As an amateur I am active in the natural horsemanship community and judged “The Road to the Horse” colt starting competition this year between Tommy Garland, Richard Winters and John Lyons. I’m also on the Board of Directors for The Texas Horse Park project in Dallas. It’s my mission to show the global horse community the attributes of the Arabian horse to promote the breed. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the Reining division. 6. If my husband and friends weren’t with me at the horse show it wouldn’t be the same. 7.

Theresa Burdett

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Andy Dearing of Dearing Farms and Kat Stevens of Moonshadow Performance Horses. 1. I got into Arabian horses because … they are expressive and they bond with their owners. I originally wanted a Quarter Horse but when I went to a local Quarter Horse show and saw how low headed they were being trained and that they could roll a golf ball with their nose, I decided against a Quarter Horse. 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … my horse’s Coggins and health certificate! Nothing like scrambling around, in your show clothes, trying to get your paperwork faxed into the horse show office prior to the start of your class. Makes for an exciting day! 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … all of it! Just getting to spend time with my horses and friends is a great blessing to me. I enjoy competing as much as the next rider, but whether I win or lose, I must learn something from the experience and improve the next time. 4. As an amateur I can introduce new people to the versatility of the Arabian horse to promote the Arabian horse. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the Endurance division. I would love to have the time and stamina to compete in this division. I’ve managed to complete a few 25 mile rides and I have the horse, that with conditioning, could do a 50-mile ride, but I don’t have the time/energy to get my self in that kind of shape. I’ve added this to my bucket list! 6. If Beth Dearing wasn’t at a horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same. Beth is always upbeat and ready to try anything. 7. Besides riding, I enjoy … I don’t have lots of extra time, but when I do, I love to ride my motorcycle with my husband, read, ride my bicycle, or go scuba diving with friends. 8. The book I’m reading right now is … “The Third Option.” It reminds me of a James Bond movie. 9. My favorite place to travel to is … Oregon.

I got into Arabian horses because … I was born into a horse family and loved Arabian horses from the start. 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … the horse. Those that travel with me or stall nearby know that I have borrowed just about everything else, especially hats; I am notorious for leaving my hat behind. 3. My favorite part of a horse show is when I first get there and all the stalls are perfect (yes, I avoid set-up if at all possible), the horses are groomed and ready to go, and the exhibitors/trainers/families/etc., are all catching up. It’s sort of like coming home to an extended family reunion. 4. As an amateur I can invite a friend over to go for a ride to promote the Arabian horse. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the Jumper and Western divisions. 6. If my family (Dearings, Humphrey and Clinton), weren’t at a horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same. 7. Besides riding, I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing with my dogs. 8. The book I’m reading right now is I just finished “Pride and Prejudice,” I need a recommendation on what to start next! 9. My favorite place to travel to is … somewhere I have never been before.

The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … stocking the refrigerator and pantry at home for my husband and children. 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … watching my daughter in the show ring. She loves it! 4. As an amateur I can help to promote the Arabian horse by hosting 4-H/horsemanship clinics and class parties at the ranch. I also have supplied horses to pet for the Black Stallion Literacy Project, and every year I donate stallion breedings for the Region 9 Youth Scholarship Program.

Karlan Downing

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Owner of Karma Arabians – horses with Travis and Kathy Braden, Kelly Alcorn, Kim Klossner – I pick the trainer to match the horse. 1. I got into Arabian horses because … I asked for my first horse at age 2—and at every possible occasion after that. When I was 5 my father, who was in the USAF stationed in French Morroco, sent home movie film he shot that included a Bedouin on a dappled grey Arabian in full desert regalia galloping onto the racetrack then rearing and pawing the air. He sent it for the horse-crazy daughter, but I am not sure he realized the monster he was creating! My first horse had a Half-Arabian grey colt at her side when I bought her. (never tell a kid she can have a horse as soon as she can pay for it herself!) When my

260A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


Amateur Snapshots mother got nervous about the cowboys and bull riders watching me win barrel races, it was easy to convince me to show the Arabian instead! Several local breeders let me ride and show their horses and the rest is history! I have always had a weakness for beautiful, little dappled greys! 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is … Although my horses are a serious business, the shows are also my relaxation from the stressful job of being an Emergency Physician. No one will die if I make a mistake, and that makes it easier to have and enjoy a good class on one of my horses! 3. My favorite part of a horse show is the true partnership you feel with a good horse and the mutual support of all of my horse show friends, especially when seeing a friend I have given suggestions to win, even if she beats me! 4. As an amateur I can try to share the show experience with people new to the horse world, and work hard with my friends to keep our shows an enjoyable experience, like the ones in the 50s and 60s, that were responsible for giving me and others the “horse-show bug” to promote the Arabian horse. 5. If I had the time/energy, I would also compete in the Endurance division. 6. If my husband, Ray Lemaster, wasn’t at a horse show with me, it wouldn’t be the same. 7. Besides riding, I enjoy … teaching, public speaking, working as an ER physician, spending time with my parents and other family; reading, visiting with long-distance friends via my computer, and spending time with my friends here in Texas. (My husband would probably add as number one—talking on the phone!) 8. The book I’m reading right now is … the “Mercedes Coffin,” by Faye Kellerman. I read 3-4 books a week—all sorts. My mother used to say that I would read the side of the cereal box if I didn’t have a book to read. 9. My favorite place to travel to is … out to the barn to visit or ride Ristol (KM Aristoson, my 29-year-old gelding), or to the baby pasture to watch the youngsters play! 10. Something about me that would surprise people is … I seriously considered majoring in Commercial Art—I was the artist for my high-school newspaper and literary magazine; do the rough ideas for my horse ads; and make my own Arabian costumes. I also write poetry.

Tracy Dowson

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Vicki Humphrey Training Center 1. I got into Arabian horses because … my sister, Sheryl McConnell, married a man who owned and showed Arabians and it was much easier for me to tag along with them and get help from them before I could afford a trainer. 2. The one thing I can’t forget when I go to a horse show is ... I pack so much stuff that someday I’m afraid I’m going to forget the horses! 3. My favorite part of a horse show is … the quiet before the storm. I actually like just working with the horses before the show actually starts. There is less pressure, less politics and you still have great horses. 4. As an amateur I can ride all of my horses on the trails (yes, even English horses enjoy being out of the arena), and I always take time to let the hikers pet the horses if they want. I would like to do an open house and hopefully sell horses to people who want to start showing (or even just riding) to promote the Arabian horse. 10. Something about me that would surprise people is … I enjoy gardening and spending time with family and friends.

At the time we got our first Arabians, there were very few in North Carolina (obviously a long time ago).

Debra Foxworthy

Farm Name/Trainer Affiliation: Battaglia Farms 1. I got into Arabian horses because …my friend, Karen, invited me to join her when she would have lessons or visit her horses. I was amazed by their beauty and grace and at how beautiful Karen looked when she rode. The horses looked majestic; their heads and tails held up proudly and hooves so high, it was an incredible sight. I was completely smitten after meeting them face-to-face and realizing how sweet and intelligent they are. I began to wish that I could ride one of these magnificent creatures. I watched and listened for some months and then got up the courage to ask about leasing a horse and taking lessons. I had never really ridden a horse before, and it seemed just a little intimidating. Luckily there was a perfect horse in the barn for a novice such as myself; so, I began my new life as an equestrian. After leasing and taking lessons for a few months, Bob and Russ found the perfect horse for me to “grow” with—Jubelation.

Mon Bandaid +/ 1977-2009

As I watched Mon through the last months of his life, with the awareness that this day was approaching, I began to reflect on what he had accomplished in addition to his show ring awards. Little could I foresee as a teenager of 16 how influential one horse’s life would be on my life. He gave a young girl confidence to believe in herself and realize that she could accomplish any dream through determination and fortitude. He taught me the thrill of success a thousand times over, but more importantly, he taught me how to accept disappointments with grace and humility. He was a unifying force which forged bonds of love and understanding between a child and her parents that can never be broken. He gave me the opportunity to meet the most wonderful people in the world whom I am now privileged to call friends. He taught me about unconditional love, sacrifice, and trust along with the responsibility that

they bring toward those whom we love. He gave me the strength to make the difficult decision to end his life when I looked into his wise eyes and knew the time had come. It was almost as if he was telling me that his job here was done and that he feels I can go on without him now. Every horse that I have known, I have loved deeply and they are all special in their own way, but there is no love like a first love. I know that there is a spot in my heart that will always be sad at his passing but my life has been so blessed to have had the privilege of loving this special soul that I know the memories will slowly dull the heartache. Good-bye, Mon. I wish you peace, old friend. Always, Cathy SEP TEMBER 20 09 | 279A

Families In The Arabian Horse Community

Stachowski

The St achowskis A Family Vision by Gina Czupka

The Stachowski family (left to right): John, Anne, Anthony, Peter, and Jim.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember, when watching wellknown trainers pull their umpteenth National Champion up to the winner’s circle to collect the roses, that they were once little horse-crazy kids. It seems so long ago and far away as to almost not exist—surely, they’ve always been riding incredible horses and winning, winning, winning. With the Stachowski brothers, that is precisely the case. Of course, they were once little boys, but their mother, Annee, points out that they’ve always had a knack for success in the show ring.

282A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

“They were always winning,” she says with a laugh, when asked about the early trials and tribulations of the brothers’ careers in horses. Whether the ability to work well with horses is nurture or nature, we might never know. However, it’s been proven time and time again that children won’t necessarily share the interests of their parents—it’s more often just the opposite case. But there was something about horses that struck a chord with the Stachowskis, even before they were the family as which we know them today.


Stachowski The Three Musketeers in 1964 (left to right): Anthony, Peter, and Jim Stachowski.

John Stachowski, a native of Poland, grew up around horses, but they were not the extravagantly priced, elegant creatures that populate the modern show ring. Still, they were valuable, being necessary to farm life. Perhaps it was there that he grew to appreciate horses with athletic abilities—it was certainly a theme that carried on through time, as was his appreciation of the Arabian horses that were bred in his native country. Annee, who was born in The Netherlands but grew up in England, had horses for most of her life. “I was riding

since I was 5 years old,” she says, adding that she also used to ride cross-country. The couple wed and had three young sons—Peter, Anthony and Jim—by the time they moved to the United States in 1959. They bought a farm in Mantua, Ohio, where they set about raising their family. An essential component of that was, of course, horses—or ponies, at first, along with a few other animals. “When the boys were small, we had some chickens, we had two pigs,

and we had a few cows,” Annee says. “We had milking cows—Jerseys. They grew up on Jersey milk, butter and cream. They were very healthy—they never had colds!” The family worked together on the farm, from feeding and cleaning stalls to training the ponies, readying them for 4-H shows and other local competitions. “We went to shows when they were very small, all of us together,” Annee says. “We never did any other things, other sports.

They were all interested in ponies. They started showing at 5 and 6 years old, and they were already winning in every class they went in.” The Shetland Ponies they started out on eventually made way for Half-Arabian ponies, and the connections that they made in their very active 4-H club would have a lifelong impact. In the club, they met Bonnie Bailey, who encouraged their interest in the breed that she loved. “She had Arabians and thought we should, too,” Jim quips.

That spark and liveliness that they saw in the breed was something that wasn’t familiar or necessarily desired among horsemen who had other breeds at the time. But

the Stachowskis knew how to capitalize on the Arabians’ style and bring out the best in them. “We gravitated toward the Arabians,” Anthony says. “Not as many people wanted their Quarter Horses trained.” He adds that the unique personalities of the horses made them seem as much individual clients as their owners. It was because of the brothers’ special knack with these horses that their business started to grow. The brothers naturally gravitated toward the dynamism of the English pleasure division, but took horses in halter and western classes as well, and horse owners in the region were glad to turn their horses over to the teenage brothers. “It was the support of the local people that gave us the opportunities that we have now,” Jim says. Between horse shows, in an effort to learn all that they could, they went to as many clinics and demonstrations as they could find, and were unafraid to ask advice of trainers whom they respected (and who Jim says were

As they showed more and more, and became increasingly adept at training, people in the area began to take serious notice of the Stachowski brothers’ abilities. The first people to bring Arabian horses to the Stachowskis for training were Dick and Kay Patterson. “Full training and board was $90 per month,” Anthony remembers. The experience of working with those horses only strengthened the brothers’ interest in the breed. “We liked their temperaments, and we liked working with them. We leaned toward the English style of riding, and they were conducive to that,” Peter says from a practical standpoint. Anthony elaborates. “The appeal of the Arabian horse was that they were intelligent, they had large, expressive eyes, beautiful heads, and they carried themselves in a charismatic, showy fashion.”

a integral part of the family’s next steps. They kept on, inspired by their father’s love of the horses, and decided that training could be a full-time career—they just had to take action to secure and develop their business, which was already in its early stages. Peter and Jim focused on the horse training operation and Anthony was pursuing an degree in animal science. “I began to lean slightly away from training the horses toward studying them,” Anthony says. After finishing his undergraduate studies, he enrolled in the college of veterinary medicine at Ohio State University, where he completed his four-year graduate degree. In 1978, the same year that the training operation was incorporated, Anthony started his own practice—Stachowski Veterinary Clinic—out of the family residence in Mantua.

In 1974, the family suffered a tragic blow when John died in an automobile accident. The strong work ethic that he and Annee instilled in their sons would prove to be

For Peter and Jim, the horse training operation continued to grow organically. Jim says that there were some horses that were crucial to the development of the business,

very obliging to the youngsters). “We always watched the people that were successful in the business, gravitated toward them and watched their techniques,” Jim says. “That really helped us with the business end of our operation.” But for the most part, the brothers were selftaught, working things out under the eyes of each other and their parents, until they got the results they were looking for. “We would try to do the best we could with each horse,” Peter says. “We would try to take each horse to a new level.” That dedication to improving themselves allowed the Stachowskis to keep up their winning ways, and to continue to earn recognition in their area (which was densely populated with Arabian horse enthusiasts). By the time they were in their late teens, they were traveling together to a variety of horse shows.

like Stargard, who went on to win a multitude of championships, and Ambra, a *Bask daughter owned by Dick Patterson, whose unusual ability to trot extremely high got a lot of notice. With the success that they were enjoying at Class A shows, which, Peter points out, carried a good deal more cachet in the late 1970s and early 1980s, it was a natural progression to move on to the upper echelons of competition. “By hard work, and trying the best we could, we just kept growing,” Peter says. Jim recalls his first U.S. Nationals—at Albuquerque in 1975—and the farm’s first Top Ten winner, Alpha Centauri. Another horse that Jim considers to be important in the arc of Stachowski Farm’s success is Countess Vanessa, who arguably redefined the park class and who left an indelible impression on every spectator who ever watched her trotting around the ring like it seemed no horse had ever trotted before. “She probably made the biggest impact of any horse,” Jim says. It was clear to anyone that watched her that Countess Vanessa was a hot horse, and

one that not just anyone could ride—much less coax into giving show-stopping performances in the ring. The Stachowski brothers had established themselves on the national Arabian horse scene by the mid-1980s. It was at about that time that Anthony discovered a new interest—alpacas. Drawn in by the animals’ beauty and rarity, Anthony saw a potential market for alpacas in the United States, he purchased approximately 20 alpacas in 1984. In addition to exploring and subsequently becoming an authority on camelid medicine, he began importing alpacas from Peru, worked to establish a registry, and helped to develop the standard structure of competitive alpaca halter classes. Annee Stachowski also took a strong interest in alpacas, and their beauty, tractability and smaller size (compared to the horses) inspired her to become involved with breeding and showing them, which she still does, at age 86. Today, Stachowski Alpacas is an industry leader and home to about 300 animals—all right across the street from Stachowski Arabian horse farm. Jim and Peter work together closely at Stachowski Farm,

Cindy and Peter started dating in 1978. Her family had horses in training with the Stachowskis. Her family had gone through a progression of equines not too different from the Stachowskis’ history—a start with ponies, a step up to Half-Arabians and then going in for the purebreds. Cindy was just out of college at that time. “Jimmy and Peter were showing most of our horses,” she says. “But there was one—Pompeii—that they decided should go amateur.” With that, Cindy stepped into the stirrups and was a frequent visitor to the farm, riding as often as she could. Peter and Cindy hit it off, and dated for a long while before getting married in 1990. “He was very shy,” Cindy says with a smile. “I guess I pursued him.” The couple still share a passion for horses. “I work my own,”

Cindy says. “But if I need help, he’ll help.” They have about 12 head of their own, and both Cindy and their daughter Ashton, 14, are active show ring participants, bringing home national titles. “They’re very good riders,” Peter says proudly. Shawn Stachowski’s family also had horses stabled with the Stachowskis, but she knew Jim for a long time before they ever started dating. For Shawn, too, there was the prerequisite pony, which was passed over in favor of horses. “One day, because they knew I liked horses, they went out and bought six Quarter Horses,” Shawn says. But on a trip to visit her grandparents, the family stumbled across Arabians, and after that, it was out with the Quarter Horses. Shawn started showing Arabians when she was 8, and she and her sisters grew up immersed in the Arabian horse industry, thanks to their parents’ Great Bey Farm. Her first National Top Ten was on a horse that Jim had sold to her family, and Shawn continued to have a stellar show career, earning five national championships and five reserve national championships.

but their spouses have also played an important role in making the farm what it is today. It’s not too surprising that both Cindy and Shawn Stachowski are lifelong horsewomen, and both act as advisors to their husbands, when it comes down to preparing for a show and making horses look the best they possibly can.

“I’ve known Jim since about 1979, but there was no relationship until I was 24,” Shawn says. “At that time, my dad bought All Fired Upp, and that was kind of how we started dating.” This year marks their 14th wedding Anneiversary, and their partnership is as strong as ever. Shawn’s son J.P. showed successfully during his youth years taking a reserve national championship and a national championship, and he’s now in college, at 20 years old. Their two youngest children, Ava, 8, and Jimmy, 4, are predictably interested in the horses, and enjoy riding and going to the barn as much as their parents ever did. Shawn has become increasingly involved in Saddlebreds over the past few years, adding an extra English performance element to Stachowski Farm. It has also added a new venue for competition—at the 2009 American Saddlebred World Championships, they took three horses and came away with two unanimous world championships and two reserves. “Shawn has a working knowledge of the Saddlebred industry, and that helps us to breed better Half-Arabians for the Arabian industry. That’s a great addition to the farm,” Jim says. Just as breeding is an important factor in Anthony and Anne’s work with alpacas, it is equally so at

Stachowski Farm. Cindy at one time served as the breeding manager for her parents’ Arabian horse farm, Shawn has a respected eye for breeding, and both Peter and Jim want to produce their ideal athletic Arabian horse. In a call-back to their heritage, Polish bloodlines play an important role. “Our dad figured out that the Polish horses were the best for us,” Jim says. “He gave us the right vision and the ideals.” With Anthony and Anne right across the street, the Stachowskis all work in very close proximity. Just as Anthony and Anne are a team with the alpacas, Peter and Jim support each other equally with the horses. “We’re very compatible,” Peter says. “We start different horses, but we watch each other, and we might switch, depending on the situation. Jim says that he can’t imagine a better business support system than working with his brother. “When you’re in business, it’s very hard to get top people,” Jim says. “You have to have good people that you can trust, and if they’re family, you can count on them. We always have an eye on it, and we’re there every day. Hard work is the secret—we have the same goal, the same vision.” ■

Region 10 Innovation And Cooperation by Gina Czupka In uncertain times, many people avoid risk and change. Maintaining the status quo can be a less daunting option, but taking a chance on something new has the potential to breathe new life into what has gone stale. The Arabian horse enthusiasts in Region 10 are no strangers to innovation, which is why it comes as little surprise that they initiated a move to reinvigorate what had once been one of the major features of their annual championship show. “We tried something different and new with the halter classes this year,” Region 10 Director Van Jacobsen says. “We used the five-judge system, throwing out the high and the low scores.” Jacobsen says that the decision to try something other than the standard three-judge system is a great example of how Region 10 members are not afraid of making their voices heard and trying something new. “It was something that we had wanted to try,” he says. “We had several people who were very strongly behind it—Chris Rickert and Ann Benson, as well as Lori Conway.” Region 10 has always been known as a Mecca of halter competition, but entry numbers had fallen off in recent years. “We were trying to generate interest, which had been declining somewhat,” Jacobsen says. “It was a little surprising for us, in a region that is as competitive as we are with halter horses and handlers. We were a little puzzled about why we didn’t have a larger halter contingent, and this was an effort to encourage participation.” Jacobsen adds that the initiative had the intended effect, and the show saw increased halter entries. Inaugurating the five-judge system took more than good intentions. “The only way it worked was to solicit sponsorships from individuals to cover the extra expense of the additional judges, who we had for three days, because we didn’t want to have the halter classes all bunched up,” Jacobsen says. “But any money above and beyond the sponsorships was used for payback in some specific halter classes.”

10 • REGION 10 | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

The response from the exhibitors and owners at the show was generally positive. “There are different mindsets about the timing of the classes,” Jacobsen says. “We can’t please everybody, though we would like to do so. We try to do what a majority of the exhibitors want and reach a happy medium. Most people were understanding of that, and they were very supportive of the fact that we were trying something different.” The show’s organizers are already discussing whether to have the five-judge system at the 2010 Region 10 Championships. “There’s no question, if you’re going to do it, that you have to have people financially support it,” Jacobsen says. “How many times can you ask people to give financial contributions? You hate to keep asking the same people, but on the other hand, particularly when 100 percent of the money generated from those sponsorships went right back to halter, they need to support that additional cost. It’s similar to U.S. Nationals, when they have five judges in reining, those exhibitors are charged an extra fee to fund those judges. That’s the concept we are tying to mirror.” Outside of the halter arena, Jacobsen says that interest in reining has steadily increased in the Region over the past two to three years, which led to its inclusion in the Region 10 pre-show. He also notes that competition outside of the traditional show ring is going strong. “We’ve clearly seen an increase in AHA recognition of competitive endurance and trail rides,” Jacobsen says. “They would, in the past, recognize them if you sent in your results from endurance and competitive trail rides for their various point programs. Now, with the changes in the Sweepstakes program, especially with points being awarded in classes and or at rides, there is more interest. In Region 10, this year, we had 16 AHA approved shows and 27 rides.” Jacobsen says that the collective efforts of the people who live in Region 10 make it a great place to own Arabian horses. “Our region has a reputation of being a region that gets along,” he says. “The region works together to


REGION 10 CHAMPIONSHIPS

the betterment of our breed. An example of that would be after the Convention, when they passed the concurrent show issue … our regional delegates got together and agreed that we would not have concurrent shows. That was a cooperative thing, and you could have one club—any club—that could have said ‘no.’ Yet, the region agreed that we’re not going to negatively impact one show over the other. That is the spirit of cooperation that I’ve seen in my terms as director.”

He adds that a willingness to pitch in is also characteristic. “Our people are willing to get involved, and the Region 10 members, as a whole, are extremely active. We have many committee chairs for various AHA committees. Historically we’ve had a level of high involvement, nationally, which I think is very important. If you add good horses to good people who are willing to work, and who get along—that is our biggest attribute.”

Arabian Horse Photographers In Focus

Javan by M AR Y K IRKMAN

JAVAN

Javan not only paints, but often thinks, in the abstract. “Abstract” is not a word one would associate with the horse photography that has made his name in the Arabian community over the past 20 years; instead, it refers to his desire to figure out the essence of almost anything. He rarely rests on the surface of a subject. Where that cerebral approach originated is anyone’s guess. As a child growing up in a small town near Germany’s Black Forest, Karl Schaller (Javan, pronounced “Jay-van,” is a nickname), enjoyed an outdoor life, swimming, hiking, skiing and ice skating with friends. They were such proficient swimmers that by the time he was 12, he had been certified as a life guard; a close friend later made the German Olympic swim team. It was an active background, he notes, that has contributed to good health throughout his life, and it left him with a preference for outdoor work. At the age of 13, he immigrated to Eugene, Oregon, where he lived with his aunt. Javan’s first brush with photography, around 1975, was not auspicious. “I remember picking up the camera, and it was like I was touching something from outer space,” he says. “It had these numbers and knobs and letters, and I was completely intimidated with it; it puzzled me. I took a few pictures, and put the camera away.”

A beautiful grey mare and three young women during a calendar photo shoot.

By his mid-20s, Javan had married and set about raising children (there would be four from the union, which has since ended, as well as four from his wife’s previous marriage). It was the arrival of his first child, Francesca, that returned him to photography. “I wanted to capture and savor the moment,” he explains. “So I bought a camera 30 years ago, and from that point on, it just pursued.” A landscape designer at the time, he did photography on the side, but found it to be more than a hobby. He shot portraits and weddings, and enjoyed creating images of the outdoors. Horses did not come on the scene until early 1985, when he purchased an appendix Quarter Horse named Toby. And then, a few months later, came what he now calls a turning point. One Saturday afternoon in April, he and his family attended a weekend open house at Simpson-Bridges in Alamo, Calif. On Sunday they bought their first Arabian, a daughter of Ariston named Aristasia.

JAVAN

“In the Javan tradition, when you do something, you do it wholeheartedly, so we delved into everything,” he smiles. “We had it at a nice barn, where we could learn about the horse and how to take care of it, and we had lessons on the horse, and that’s how it started.” That first open house started another activity as well: Walking the barns, he saw his first photographs of Arabian horses, and picked up his first breed publication. Studying the Arabian—reading the magazines daily and poring over the photographs—absorbed hours of his day, and with the number of breeding farms and training centers in California in the 1980s, it was easy for him to learn more about the horses themselves.

Raymond Mazzei of Furioso Farms with *Egzotyka, one of his favorite mares from Poland.

“II kept looking at the magazines,” he recalls, “and I thought, ‘I can do this.’” He made the commitment to be an equine photographer full time—but the learning curve had just begun. ph “I think in any situation where you are a newcomer and you really don’t know a lot, a situation always presents itself where people take you under their wing and guide your way,” he says. Some California horsemen, among them trainers Larry and Sue Lewis and Jim Huddleston, patronized his work and gave him pointers. Furioso Farm’s Raymond Mazzei, well known for his specialty of breeding Polish horses, became a lifelong friend as well as mentor. Javan credits Mazzei with teaching him to look beyond just conformation and appearance in assessing the worth of a horse. “For those who know Raymond, he is all about the horse—what the face is doing, the eyes, the ears,” the photographer says. “He is so into what the Arabian is all about; he has a lifetime of knowledge, presenting and breeding horses—the kind of knowledge you don’t get by just going to horse shows. There was a lot to learn from him.” Another turning point came in February 1989, when he traveled to Scottsdale for the first time, arriving for the final two days of the show. “I didn’t know much,” he says. “I was quite in awe, but I really went for the horses—and met people and took pictures and submitted them to the magazines.” Everything was an educational experience. “In those early days, I would go to a farm to do a shoot, and very often I heard, ‘Yes, we’ll try you because we just had so-and-so in and we didn’t get anything.’ I thought, ‘Why is that?’ That was a puzzle I wanted to solve, and it was a challenge. That helped structure who I am and how I approach equine photography.” He concludes with a chuckle that clients probably said that about him as well, but the situation helped him develop his technique for capturing unforgettable images.

SEP TEMBER 20 09 | 343A


JAVAN “My approach to the photography is to create an environment where every person, including the horse, becomes part of the process,” he says, and adds that the best photos result from more than just the person looking through the viewfinder or a handler presenting a horse. “Whatever the environment is, whether it is positive or negative, if any part of it is lacking, it will show—or it makes it that much more difficult to get what you’re after. “Most of my photo shoots are at training barns,” he continues. “That is good and bad; you can be sure that the horses are conditioned, trained, fed well, groomed well, and have a form of discipline. They come to a photo shoot with the intention of putting those pieces together. At someone’s home, the horse might be more relaxed, happier, more content and really itself, but can be spoiled or not as receptive because it hasn’t been educated. It’s two different worlds. And I think it’s also that those people who are sharp and ahead of the game more than others will have those two worlds come together.” Over the years came photographs of startling impact. The first shot to attract the attention of magazines was of Gene LaCroix with the 1989 Scottsdale (and later U.S. National) Champion Stallion Exceladdinn. At a time when the publications typically featured pictures of show winners with their owners and trainers posed blandly in front of stall drapes, Javan approached LaCroix in the lineup for the Parade of Champions to request a photo. The trainer was accommodating, he recalls, and the camera loved the stallion, a refined chestnut with expressive eyes. His shot caught an insightful portrait of the LaCroix/Exceladdinn combination. “It was like a mini-photo shoot,” he explains. “We were going for the same thing, but we had to get it done in seven or eight minutes. It was completely different from what anyone had done up to that point.” Over time, he became well known for character shots of horse people that reflected their lives with the horses, and for personality studies of the horses themselves. A variety of photogenic subjects testify to his abilities. In the end, Javan has found that the biggest challenge is to keep the work fresh. “Horse photography by itself can get routine,” he admits. “So much of it is set up and staged. What makes it interesting and unique is

when you have the great ones—the ones that are stars and are truly photogenic. Like, for instance”—he throws out names, cautioning again it is an incomplete list—“*Padron, Showkayce, Allionce, Hey Hallelujah, ML Mostly Padron, Jullyen El Jamaal, Bey Shah … Millennium LOA … my own horse, Mankind. What has helped me in my business is that I treat them all as individuals and try to cultivate who they are. There is an old English quote that is very appropriate; it says, ‘He is but a horse like a king; he comes but once every hundred years.’” A hard truth for him is that photographs of horses are meant to have commercial value, and due to the staging necessary for those shots, they do not always reflect who each horse really is as an individual. Javan’s involvement in Arabian horses has not been limited to photography; his understanding of the breed and his connection with the horses themselves has been enhanced by his own breeding program. His current success, he reports, began in 1995 with the purchase of the mare Markessa Rose (Mark Of Fame x Pepper Rose, by *Aladdinn). “We loved her and used her as a foundation for many years,” he says. In 1997, Markessa Rose competed at the U.S. Nationals in futurity fillies, and came home with a top ten award; her later career in open competition was especially significant for Javan because it was an early connection with her handler, Ted Carson, who remains a valued friend today. The Schallers were prescient in their choice of stallions for Markessa Rose: She was among the first bred to Versace, and in 2000, delivered the first foal by Jullyen El Jamaal, Manray. Another of his favorites from the mare is the stallion Mankind, a Jullyen El Jamaal son who was exported to Saudi Arabia in 2007. Even before Markessa Rose’s national debut, however, Javan had acquired what would be his most notable horse to date. He was involved in promotion for Bob and Pat Radmacher’s stallion Desert Heat VF when Pat showed him a picture of a colt they had at home. Several trainers had already turned the colt down, he says, but something about the youngster spoke to him; he and the Radmachers struck a deal, and in due course, the son of Bucharest V and Barbary Rose was dropped off at his home. “He wasn’t registered, he had no name, he wasn’t halter broken—he had nothing,” Javan recalls. “But when he came out of the van, he looked at me—and it was one of

346A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

those once-in-a-lifetime feelings, when you know you’re looking at something that is really different and great.” The colt was Millennium LOA, who in 2001 would be named U.S. National Champion Stallion, and he illustrates the intuitive approach that balances Javan’s practical understanding of what it takes to win in the show ring. “I have to admit I believed in him from the very first minute I saw him,” he says. “My mind was racing pretty amazingly. For me, if I like something, I like it and believe in it, and I’ll make it into something. He had good conformation; that is what you obviously want no matter what, and I could see that in the picture, but it was more than that. I loved the shape of his neck, the way it sat on top of his shoulder, and he had amazing eyes. “Some of these horses stand on their own merits,” he continues. “Yes, everyone likes a lot of horses and you give them the respect they deserve, but then there are others who stand out—and thank God it is that way. It separates those that are average and normal from those that are great. If we didn’t have that comparison, we wouldn’t look for those moments and strive for those periods in our lives. That was Millennium; I just knew and he stood out.” For more than a year, Millennium LOA simply grew up at the farm. But Javan had a growing certainty that the colt, with the proper conditioning, was good enough to win Junior Colts at Scottsdale. Trainer Steve Heathcott, who loved Millennium LOA, was equally sure, and pressing for a chance to show the 2-year-old. The stars aligned for Scottsdale of 1999—Millennium LOA did become Scottsdale Junior Champion Colt, showing with Heathcott. By then, however, he had been sold to Live Oak Arabians, for whom he became a triple crown champion stallion.

Above and facing page: Examples of Javan’s oils on canvas, which exemplify dramatic colors and expressive textures. In breeding horses, as in photography or art or any other experience, Javan seeks to identify the fundamental truths and learn lessons that apply to more than just the subject at hand. He has learned a lot in the horse industry. “I think every day is very important,” he says. “It’s a hard lesson to learn to truly take the good with the bad and not have either one impose too much on you, to really take things the way they are. The horse business, if you will allow it to, will teach you that. God knows, there are plenty of ups and downs at many levels. It is very similar to Hollywood, there is a lot of smoke and mirrors, and then there is reality. At times it parallels the drama of a Shakespearean play with all of its characters, myths and fantasies.” In a business which many people refer to regularly as a passion, he counsels restraint. “What I’ve learned for myself, personally, is that horse breeding is about only that: horse breeding. I believe it is not about money or winning, because the three worlds (horses, money and winning) do not necessarily mesh together. They never have and they never will; they’re like water and oil. If that is what you’re looking for, you could be in the wrong endeavor.” On the other hand, he adds, “There really aren’t any risks in the horse business if you can accept that they are just horses.” He recalls a remark attributed to Sheila Varian years ago that expresses much of his philosophy. “She said, ‘I came to this horse show with horses. Whether they win or lose, I leave with the same ones.’ I think that’s a good thing to live by. 348A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

“Once you have done your best to breed fine horses, you must then prioritize their inherent worth,” Javan observes. “We are their stewards. We’ve changed their environment; they are dependent upon us; so, we owe it to them to be their stewards, to supervise them. “People can be brilliant and simple at the same time,” he observes. “The stories make it easier for us to comprehend what is so obvious.” His view of the Arabian horse business seeks to integrate the nuances of a complicated industry. “I really believe the community at large can accomplish a great deal,” he says. “The horse business needs to reinvent itself at both the national and international level, if possible; it is not all about being market-driven. I think you use great horses in breeding, but they shouldn’t define an entire breed. The Arabian horse is so multi-layered.” Again, someone else’s comment expresses his own thoughts. “It was Michael Byatt at Louisville, who stated, when a groom was bringing a horse up for pictures and the handler was a bit abrupt with the horse, ‘Why don’t you stop picking at him and let him maintain his own integrity?’ That is a philosophy that you can live by. It all filters out in the end product: whether that horse has a good life, a poor life or a great life, just like people.” Abruptly, he changes pace, and comments that he’s sounding way too serious. ‘Serious’ is not the whole Javan story; in fact, one key to getting through the day is to lean heavily on humor. One can’t take anything

too seriously, he says. He laughs and teases, “Come on, now. You haven’t even asked me who my favorite horse is! What writer doesn’t ask who a person’s favorite horse is?” For the record, it is the stallion Ecaho. The years have seen many changes in Javan’s life, not the least of which has been his ever-widening exploration of art. For the last decade, he has dabbled in multimedia projects, some of which involve horse photography, and most of which are meant to be “provocative, striking, thoughtful and intriguing.” For the past four years, he has tried his hand at oil painting. No horses there, he says—his style is abstract, often portraying flowers. Two clients in the equine industry, Annabella Gelbard and Carol Steppe, already have purchased his paintings. His personal life has seen changes as well. He has for four years shared his life with horsewoman Shawn Medica.

The pair enjoys their mutual affinity for Arabian horses (“She is a beautiful rider,” he notes), along with an array of other interests, including travel and art (in fact, Shawn was the motivating factor in his taking up oil painting). His children are grown and living their own lives, but remain close, enabling Javan to spend time with his wonderful grandchildren. For him, it is a comfortable life. “I think everything presents itself the way it does and you learn to f low with it,” he says. “You can’t really fight change. I’ve learned to be f lexible and open-minded and see things new every day—or at least allow myself the opportunity to do that.” For all his observation and thought, he finds that life, like his photography business, is founded on one basic rule: “At the end of the day, it’s your credibility that matters.” ■
