Editor A Team Effort Since I started at the magazine in November of 1993, I have had the pleasure of working with many different individuals throughout our community. However, a real standout in all those years has been Jody Thompson—the consummate professional. She is one important reason that Arabian Horse Times is able to celebrate its 40th Anniversary. Her work ethic, attention to detail, and all around excellence set the benchmarks in our office. Jody joined Arabian Horse Times as an intern in June, 1983, and became a full-time employee after two months. She started as a typesetter/designer, but for many years now has been our Production Manager, a position she accepted only when it became clear that her children could be at home after school without her. Below, Jody talks of her continuing association with the magazine. It has been an interesting 27 years, to say the least, and the constantly evolving technology allows me to challenge myself and grow in my job each and every day. I do continue to work on editorial content and enjoy designing show coverage, the personality pieces, and the features on Arabian horse photographers. In fact, I would like to remark that the photographers make our jobs easy; the photos they take for advertising and editorial are simply incredible! A big reason I enjoy working as the Production Manager is that it allows me to work with each department and our outside vendors on a daily basis. I have learned many things from all these individuals regarding design, editorial, sales, printing, binding, estimating, etc., and they have made my career that much more educational and rewarding. Now, as I look to the future, I find myself drawn to all the possibilities of the developing technologies and the Internet, and it is indeed an exciting time to be in the publishing business, as well as the Arabian horse business. —Jody Thompson, Production Manager When you have a group of people who work together in what, for a few days each month, is a high-stress situation, you have to be able to count on one another. I have found that there is never a time you can’t count on Jody. Don’t miss our continuing coverage of our 40th Anniversary celebration in this month’s issue!

Shared dreams live forever. by Mary Kirkman

“As the dream becomes clear, their presence is startling … their beauty overwhelms you and their spirit touches your soul.” A life with Arabian horses is a life of dreams: dreams of new foals, each better than the next … dreams of show ring greatness … dreams that you will make a contribution—give back something positive to your horses and the world around you. And when those dreams come true, there is little better in life. When Barbara and her late husband, Neil, established Strawberry Banks Farm, their dream was to breed beautiful athletes. That dream has not changed, and Strawberry Banks continues to build on its success. The first step in the Churs’ dream came when they bred the stallion Tempter (Cognac x Tonki), who then sired Ericca, a mare so special that people still remember vividly her presence in the show ring. Then came the Tempter son A Temptation, a four-time national champion in English and pleasure driving. His dam, A Love Song (*Bask x *Elkana), was also the dam of Allience (six-time national champion) and To Love Again (twice U.S. National Top Ten in English Pleasure and Canadian National Reserve Champion Park). Both were bred by Strawberry Banks Farm, and today their foals are competing and winning in the show ring, each talented and beautiful. It was first Barbara and Neil’s dream; now the dream belongs to everyone who breeds to or purchases a foal by one of Strawberry Banks’ three headline stallions—Baske Afire, Hey Hallelujah and A Temptation. There is no limit to the future, because Barbara’s commitment to the Arabian breed is as big as her heart.


Remember your childhood dream … the horses you could only dream about? There was something special about them … something really different? That is the way we feel about Baske Afire—a horse

and owners so that they, too, may turn their dreams into reality. From a young age, Baske Afire consistently has been a leading sire. He has topped the charts at the prestigious Scottsdale Arabian Show, as well as at the U.S. and Canadian Nationals, in both performance and halter for purebreds and Half-

Arabians. He has taken his place in the Arabian industry as a leading sire, and what is so amazing is that he is only 11 years old! Baske Afire continues to be the most talkedabout performance sire in America. The total number of winners in all categories continues to grow—and the best is yet to come!

“The wonderful selling point about Baske Afire get is that everyone wants to buy a winner, and he certainly has sired many beautiful, athletic ones,” says Melanie Murch, marketing director for Strawberry Banks. “Because Baske Afire’s foals have been so successful in the show ring, there is a great demand for his offspring.” Baske Afire has consistently sired exceptional quality, along with extremely gifted physical ability. This, of

course, is a sure sign of a stallion’s greatness—quality and consistency. Recent visitors to Strawberry Banks told Barbara that on their farm tour of the East Coast, it was the Baske Afire get that stood out most in their minds; as soon as they saw the youngsters, they knew he was their sire.

Strawberry Banks trainer Brian Murch, long acquainted with the willing, talented horses bred at the farm, knows firsthand the success of the Baske Afires. He was aboard ROL Fire Mist, winner of the 2010 Arabian English Performance Association $100,000 Futurity at Scottsdale. “She is the epitome of a great show horse,” he says. “When she hits the ring, she’s all goforward and ears-up. You can just feel her saying, ‘I’m loving this!’ This is what the Baske Afire horses are like. You can see why everyone wants to ride them.” ROL Fire Mist get Murch’s endorsement for another reason too. “She has a brilliance that is based on extreme quality and athleticism,” he says. “When she raises her performance to the ultimate level—which she does to compete on any given day—she reminds me of so many of the national champion *Bask-bred mares of years past.”

6 Strawberry Banks Farm | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


Murch is not alone in his appreciation of the Baske Afire get. “A lot of trainers are really liking them,” he observes. “To name a few, Joel Kiesner rode Mariachi WA, who was Canadian National Champion Country Pleasure Junior Horse, and Shawn Rooker rode Sin City, AEPA $100,000 Futurity Champion. Vicki Humphrey, Joey Canda, Mary Trowbridge and Kevin Price all have really promising young Baske Afire horses—some have already won at Scottsdale and the regionals.” Then there are the HalfArabian champions as well. Peter Stachowski drove Bask Is A Genius to the U.S. National Championship in Half-Arabian Pleasure Driving; Jim Stachowski won the Scottsdale Championship Half-Arabian English Pleasure Junior Horse with In The Line Afire; and Ryan Strand rode RH Big Time to two Canadian National Championships in HalfArabian English Pleasure Junior Horse.

a temptation “With every step he seemed to leave the ground, and you felt as though you were riding/driving high above the clouds.”

Those who saw four-time national champion A Temptation show still talk about his presence—that soft step, his big, intelligent eye, and the way his ethereal look transformed his high-going trot. He is the quintessential example of Strawberry Banks’ breeding program. A Temptation’s striking beauty and extreme ability personify the combination of Arabian traits implicit in the farm’s bloodlines. Appropriately, it was A Temptation who accompanied Barbara in her first effort at competition herself, and the two won the U.S. National Championship in Pleasure Driving AAOTD.

8 Strawberry Banks Farm | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


“One of the things that I love about the Temptation horses is that they have a real Arab look,” says Brian Murch. “They have a real soft, elegant way of moving. There is a lot of elasticity in their stride.” And A Temptation has another asset: his pedigree is a complete outcross for the Huckleberry Bey line which is so prevalent in English pleasure breeding. He represents the best of the past, and at the same time, a big step into the future.

a temptation

Hey Hallelujah’s show record speaks for itself. A six-time national champion in English pleasure and pleasure driving, he is the only horse in the history of the breed to win the Triple Crown in both of those divisions. And his amazing temperament allowed him a further dimension: after winning national championships with trainer Brian Murch, he went on to accompany amateur Neil Chur to Neil’s first national championship. They were a perfect team! Since retiring from the show ring, Hey Hallelujah has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to sire top show horses. Most impressive about his record, however, is his percentage of top contenders: from a limited amount of foals, an uncommonly high number have been named national champion. “Hey Hallelujah not only fulfilled our dream of owning a horse with his many merits,” Barbara says, “but also our vision of what he could do when crossed on the mares we had bred.” The match of Hey and U.S. National

the future The dreams of Strawberry Banks have not changed over the years. “We want beautiful individuals who perform,” Barbara says, “but although we love our English horses, we support each horse finding its place in whatever division suits it best. We just want them to be the best in that division!”

dreams do come true Looking back at the history of Strawberry Banks, Barbara enjoys the dreams that became great memories. First, there was Ericca’s unanimous U.S. National Championship Mare title. “How nervous we were as this beautiful silver mare of ours trotted into the finals arena, shining against the brilliant green of the fresh shavings,” she recalls. “We were not known as halter breeders, but that night the ring belonged only to her.” A dozen years later, as an aged mare, Ericca gave her owner an even more emotional memory when Barbara brought her to Louisville as part of the farewell to Freedom Hall celebration. The response of the crowd to the stately, elegant Ericca brought tears to Barbara’s eyes, and just remembering that night she still cries, knowing how happy Ericca was to be back in the show ring! Then, of course, there was A Temptation’s unanimous victory in the U.S. National Championship for English Pleasure Junior Horses. However, the greatest dream that turned into a memory came when Hey Hallelujah and A Temptation went head to head for the English Pleasure National Championship. “What an exciting night, with a magical ending!” Barbara says. “Hey Hallelujah took home the roses, with A Temptation reserve—the only time one farm has owned the champion and reserve in English pleasure in the same year. And by the way, the following year A Temptation returned to wear the roses!” For the past three years, dreams have created memories with Baske Afire too. “Watching his foals sparkle and win so many classes each year in Scottsdale and at the Nationals has been incredible,” Barbara says. “We are so proud to have him as a part of Strawberry Banks to help us continue creating our dream. We are looking forward to more stellar memories in the future.”

Forty Years Of Memories

40Years of Arabian Horse Times by Linda White

The story goes something like this: on July 3, 1970, Walter Mishek, a junior at Mankato State University, put together a tabloid that would quickly blossom into Arabian Horse Times magazine. Walter and his younger sister, Susan, had gotten their first horses years earlier, so the magazine idea had been drifting around in his mind for a good while. His business studies complemented his passion for the Arabian breed and the possibilities it presented, not only as a hobby but as a lifelong undertaking.

64A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


Forty Years Of Memories “In 1970 the Arabian was a different horse than it is today,” Mishek reflects. “They were a family horse, and the families who owned them considered them part of the family. At that time the Arabian was a breed for everyone—a horse who could do everything, for people at any level who wanted to participate. There were big breeders, like Dan Gainey, John Rogers, and Bazy Tankersley, and smaller, more modest breeders, like Don and Shorty Boggs. Don was a milkman, and Shorty worked at the local Dairy Queen®. They all wanted to create a unique ‘look’ that would become their signature. They developed breeding programs that would create generations of increasingly better horses that reflected their vision of the ideal Arabian horse. “We need to get back to the romance of the Arabian horse!” he says suddenly, interrupting himself. “We need to get back to The Black Stallion that captivated us all when we were kids!” Then he resumes his walk through the past. “At Arabian Horse Times we promoted the horses people were breeding, and every program that was creating its own variations on the Arabian theme,” he says. “There were far fewer classes for Arabians at horse shows, so people would bring their one or two horses and the same horse might show in park, English and western pleasure, native costume and trail. Versatility was a big selling point: one horse could do it all. For example, at the Ohio Buckeye in the 1970s, there might be 50 horses showing in both park and western pleasure—the same, versatile horses that were competitive in several divisions.” Back in the day, versatility classes were a well-supported offering at many Arabian shows. Exhibitors spent untold hours at home, readying their horses and themselves for what was usually a riotously fun competition that sorted the chaff from the wheat, despite the antics. One landmark example was the versatility class at the 1976 Ohio Buckeye Sweepstakes. It was huge, and among the entrants were Gene LaCroix, Sheila Varian, Ohio breeder David Cass, and a bunch of other intrepid souls. Arabian versatility classes were structured like the Olympic pentathlon, typically featuring four or five widely diverse disciplines. Lightning-fast tack changes became vaudeville, and the cumulative scores of horses’ performances at each of those tasks determined who won what.

Forty Years Of Memories We sat in the coliseum’s stands with the late Betty Zekan, Kim Jarvis and Judy Von Duyke, whistling and hooting at Gene LaCroix’s motorcycle helmet, visor down, glinting in the overhead lights as he took his mount (Bomarc) over the low jumps. In the row in front of us, longtime Buckeye Show Manager Vern Dutter and his wife, Jean, laughed at us, and we all ek Walter Mish reacted to David Cass’s coconut shell bra, bridesmaid’s hat and tasteful, plastic hula skirt. A hula hoop, festooned with long plastic streamers, was what Sheila Varian held steady around LaCroix to give him a little privacy (ahem) while he slipped into his chaps.

“There was no transported semen then, so people bred more to local and regional stallions, which gave us a bigger gene pool,” Mishek says, continuing his narrative. “Years ago, you could always tell when the horse was an Arabian. You looked at the pretty heads and fountain tails, carried high, and the Arabians immediately set themselves apart. How thrilling it was to see new foals and to recognize again that there is no other breed like the Arabian!

“We have never wavered from creating and perpetuating this great breed that does two things: creates in us a passionate love that never disappears, and builds a community of devotees around it. Wherever you go, anywhere in the world, you are drawn to other Arabian horse people. Even if you don’t have a common language between you, you will find kindred spirits. “People then lived their lives feeling special because the horse was special,” he says. “There were fewer classes when U.S. Nationals was held in Oklahoma City, so we had time to take road trips to farms in the area. We would visit Ansata, Blanton’s, and the other big farms, so we could see and study the great programs other people had developed. We wanted to learn everything we could about Arabian horses, but there is never enough time to learn all there is to know. As Dan Gainey used to say, ‘A lifetime in the breeding of Arabian horses is never quite enough.’” There was a special sense of purpose then too, he recalls. “It wasn’t just about showing; it was about creating the next generation. And it wasn’t about money, either. It was about the horses. People bought and sold horses because they were always striving to create their vision, to create something better to help perpetuate the breed. “‘The coffee pot is always on,’ Evelyn Burton used to tell us when we would ask about coming to the farm, and it was true. Then, as today, hospitality was very important. Most horse shows today are endurance contests, but 40 years ago there was time to visit farms and do things with other people in the Arabian community—and it was a community. I believe that’s the reason so many people go to Scottsdale, because there is still so much for spectators to do and see outside


the horse show, things the whole family can do together. At Scottsdale there is time, and friends around you to do things with. Very few other venues today have anything much for spectators and family members beyond the horse show. And people want to have fun! If it isn’t fun, they won’t spend money on Arabian horses. They will move on to something else. We compete with a growing list of other activities for their discretionary dollars.” For a little while in the late 1970s and first half of the 1980s, Scottsdale, Ariz., really sizzled, and it wasn’t from the hot sun. Scottsdale’s highest profile, most successful breeders staged the first of what became an avalanche of public auctions that attracted buyers from all over the world. Each year more and more breeders produced more and more auctions that were more and more elaborate, until they rivaled Broadway’s toniest productions, embellished with Really Famous People (several of whom were sitting at the end of your row). The sale horses got more and more expensive. Those who were there still talk about the memorable bidding wars and the auction prices that spiraled out of reach of mere mortals. If the auctions lent a glamorous new facet to the equine market, they also pumped the enthusiasm of those who merely observed, happy to be a part of such an important event. “Those sales were like Las Vegas productions.” The magazine’s former publisher shakes his head, disbelieving. “There were no evening classes at the show. This meant people could get dressed up and go out to dinner with friends. When the sales started happening, they could go to that evening’s sale.” Arabian Horse Times diligently covered every subject and story, from Scottsdale’s over-the-top

productions to guidelines on how to feed your pregnant broodmare. Not surprisingly, the people involved in the magazine’s creation became integral to its evolution into an Arabian industry icon that would become the most widely-circulated publication of its kind in the world. The first person to join Mishek’s ambitious undertaking was Wayne Thompson. Long associated with Gainey Fountainhead Arabians, Thompson had developed a friendship over the years with Mishek, who also was a devoted Gainey Arabians admirer.

Wayne Thompson

Daniel C. Gainey had begun his Arabian horse enterprise 30 years earlier in Owatonna, Minn., a few miles east of Waseca on State Route 14. Gainey-breds began to rack up performance and halter championships and national honors, leading Gainey Fountainhead Daniel C. Gainey Arabians to establish a second farm, in north Scottsdale. (Today the property is Gainey Ranch, one of the city’s most desirable residential complexes, complete with boutiques, hotels, tennis and golf clubs and tempting bistros and cafes where the elite meet to eat.)

SEP TEMBER 2010 | 67A


Forty Years Of Memories When Gainey Ranch on Scottsdale Boulevard still had Gainey Arabians living on it, and later, when trainer Jack Teague leased the place for himself and his champion stock horse, Authenticity, Mishek and Thompson, back in Waseca, were selling display ads and classifieds to Arabian horse fanciers all over the country. As the magazine grew, additional staff was hired as needed. Stan Wayne, an Arabian breeder from Albert Lea, Minn., came on as head of sales; R.C. Mishek, who had many other projects to monitor, was nonetheless always on hand as mentor and consultant to his enterprising son and the magazine’s staff; and Helen Grunwald joined the team as classified ads manager. Her son Mike, a later hire, oversaw the publication’s growing financial operations. And the list has gone on from there. Forty Years Of Getting The Story Out An impressive series of sales personnel, editors and feature writers passed through the doors of Arabian Horse Times. Even those whose equine background was limited quickly became acquainted with Arabians, because the magazine was housed in the building next to the Misheks’ Arabians barn. A small indoor exercise arena between the two allowed the horses to be worked even in the worst weather.

th her Jody Thompson wi laney. granddaughter, De

Production Manager Jody Thompson was hired in June 1983, right out of secondary school. “Not because I knew horses,” she admits matter-offactly, “but because I knew how to operate the new typesetting equipment the Times had just purchased. Typesetting machines

68A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

then were huge, the size of a very large desk, and had four discs, each of which could hold four fonts, or typefaces. Sixteen font selections at a time was a lot back then! The machines had chemicals that allowed the type to appear on a special kind of photographic paper. The paper was then positioned on boards by wax, and because nothing could be saved on computerized files back then, if you had an error or a change, it was back to square one.” (The positioning of paper on boards was what gave birth to calling prepared pages “boards” that editorial would approve or correct before they went to press.) The in-house writing staff and “stringers”— that is, freelancers who regularly took assignments and were paid by the story—knew all about errors and changes, and having to start over (and over and over) from what they hoped was a final draft. Typesetting was an essential production skill, and in those days, writers had the new IBM® Selectric, for which little orange spools of correction tape were manufactured. The Selectric II was a f lat-out modern marvel. Gone were the old manual typewriters that weighed roughly a ton each. Wheeling the darned things around on rickety little typing tables, or even dusting under them, was a major production. Some older high school graduates may remember those old behemoths from typing class, where slapping the carriage return at the end of every line became as automatic as breathing. Mercifully, electric typewriters and typesetting machines were invented 40 years ago, because every article that came in via regular mail or Federal Express had to be typed, proofread and handed


over, hopefully error free, to the typesetter(s). Articles written in-house also had to be typeset, because the instantaneous processes we take for granted today were imaginary in those days. Thompson and her production colleagues also designed every page of space advertising and every editorial layout pretty much from scratch, and pasted them together on the surfaces of their adjustable wooden drafting tables. What a marvel those crazy, new, lighted-from-inside drafting tables were when they came along! The increasingly high-tech advances that followed were gratefully embraced by most professionals. Acceptance was not universal, however. Some older, traditional designers resisted, viewing change suspiciously, recognizing that the first cold breaths of obsolescence might be headed their way. Advertisers today take for granted detailed monitoring of their advertising before publication, but things were not always thus. Initially, and for years thereafter, advertisers’ ads rarely came in “camera ready,” in that day’s jargon. Ads weren’t planned and produced by professional advertising specialists, who send their creations online or on DVD. In fact, Arabian Horse Times had been in business for 17 years before the Internet left academia’s halls of ivy, where it had been developed years earlier, for the irresistible lures of commercialism. Running with the big dogs would suddenly take on global dimensions. “When I first came to AHT, customers still didn’t have much input about their ads because of the time constraints of putting out a monthly magazine,” Jody Thompson recalls. “There was no such thing as a fax machine. Everything came to us through the U.S. Postal Service, with a rare Fed-Ex package for really large projects. Otherwise, advertisers told the

salespeople what they wanted to get across and left everything from there up to the designers. “Now, the clients have a huge impact on every step of what their ad campaigns will say and look like. With personal computers, the Internet and email, nearly everyone has the capacity to make last-minute adjustments, additions and changes. The advantages, in these days of instant communication, are really obvious during show season—advertisers might call us from their trucks on the way home from a horse show to report what they just won, and they want it to be included in their ads. They can even check the ‘boards’ (files) we send to their iPhones! “Over the years with computers, email, websites that have almost unlimited information, FTP sites and so forth, everything has become easier—and more complicated—at the same time. With phones that access your email, you are never more than a ‘forward’ or a ‘reply’ from doing your job 24/7. This means that all of us need to try hard to create a balance between our work and our personal lives, to be able to enjoy both.” Defining The Mission In Today’s World Arabian owners who became involved with the breed before 2003 are familiar with IAHA, or International Arabian Horse Association, the breed’s promotional arm. The last few years of IAHA’s existence, however, saw a succession of controversies that weakened the organization’s credibility, and several lawsuit settlements took significant bites of its financial picture. In 2003, through a merger of the Arabian Horse Registry of America (founded 1908) and the International Arabian Horse Association (founded 1950), the Arabian Horse Association was incorporated as a 501(c) (5) organization. It now includes 33,000 members.

Forty Years Of Memories The people who make up the Arabian horse community are the ones who read Arabian Horse Times. The majority of Arabian owners—the bulk of its readers—are not necessarily interested in showing, but it is not an exaggeration to say that Arabian horse lovers at every level are equally important to the magazine and to the breed. “Grass roots Arabian horse lovers are our broadest readership,” says AHT Editor Kevin Ludden. He joined the magazine in 1993, took over as managing editor in October 1994, and was named editor in the early 2000s. “I cannot emphasize strongly enough that we are interested in everyone who has embraced the Arabian breed, and we want to hear from them.” Ludden sees Arabian Horse Times’ role as multi-faceted. “Arabian Horse Times offers a very wide spectrum of articles,” he says. “But that said, I believe our job is to focus on a few main areas. One, we cover the big events that are happening in the industry. Two, we present features on the horses, farms and people who make up the Arabian horse community. Much of our work in both of those areas centers on the United States and Canada, but we do include show coverage from other countries and regular features on Arabian horses and operations overseas—and that is a field that is growing for us. “We also try to be aware of issues that concern horse owners, and present information and opinion on all sides of those topics, so that readers can make their own decisions on how they feel about the issues that affect them.

70A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

“And finally, we feel a serious responsibility to provide educational material. We do that mainly through our columnists (and if I can be forgiven a little pride, I think we have the best columnists in the industry). Sheila Varian, Tommy Garland, Heather Smith Thomas and Lee Bolles all write for us on a regular basis. Bob Battaglia is a semiregular, and we are developing a rotation of others who also will contribute on a semiregular basis.” These days, Ludden’s job extends beyond the stylish print magazine to the futuristic venues of the Internet, where Arabian Horse Times’ website and Facebook® page extend its reach to the public. “We have had great response to our online monthly newsletter and to our site on Facebook,” he comments. Here, he adds, the magazine’s inherent value as a promotional tool is front and center. “We now have more opportunity than ever before to reach not just those who already are in Arabian horses, but also people who are interested in horses on all levels.” He gets specific. “Consider that: people who love horses, but are looking for a ‘home’ breed; those who are already in a breed of their own, but who know nothing about Arabians; people who just think their kids need a healthy activity and have the wherewithal to purchase a horse—and all kinds of others. Even retirees, looking for a new pursuit in their free time. Everyone is a potential Arabian horse owner or at least supporter. “It’s very important that we do our job well,” he concludes, “because we represent not just the magazine, but the breed.”


It’s All About The Arabian Horse—And Its People As Ludden says, Arabian Horse Times is about everyone. The story of the magazine is that of the Arabian horse in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, but it is also about the people who love those horses—many of whom have been become dear friends. For many years, sometime in late October, the Arabian Horse Times staff looked forward to Christmas not just for the joys of the season, but for the outrageously tasty assortment of cheeses Mishek sent as Christmas gifts. The deluxe assortments came from Blaser’s Premium Cheese USA. Blaser’s hand-crafted, artisan cheeses were almost as mouth-watering as the national champions Herman Blaser and his late wife, Lyda, bred—the ones with the “LH” in front of their names. Their humor, humility and devotion to the Arabian breed endeared the Wisconsin couple to the Arabian horse community. They became lifetime members of Arabian Horse Times’ extended family, a list that grows longer every year. Beginning around 1975, an attractive young guy named Larry Jerome started coming with them to shows. From the get-go, he proved to be as avid about Arabian horses as fans everywhere were about Blaser’s Premium Cheese. With Herman Blaser and the late Evelyn Burton’s guidance, Larry Jerome and his family have grown Jerland Farms Arabians into their particular vision, which regularly lands them in the spotlight reserved for champions and national winners. In poker parlance, Larry Jerome and Herman Blaser are still a terrific pair to draw to, and their friendship, like their commitment

to Arabian horses, carries on: when contacted several weeks ago, Jerome was on his way to pick up Blaser for a road trip. At Jerland, the passion for Arabian horses runs deep. On August 22, 2010, at 4:04 a.m., Larry and Shelley Jerome’s daughter Indira and her husband, Mike Van Handel, became the parents of baby girl Alexis Kay Van Handel. Indira and her sisters rode and showed for many years, and she and her husband oversee Jerland Farms’ day-today operations in Barron, Wis. The next generation at Jerland Larry Jerome and Herman Blaser. has begun, and if she follows in her mother’s footsteps, Arabian horses will be part of her future. Mankato, Minn., where the late Syl and Bea Crooker raised winning Arabian horses, lies well west of the Wisconsin/Minnesota state line geographically, but their hearts were as lost to the Arabian horse as the Jerland Syl Crooker family’s. Syl and Bea were dear souls, archetypal stewards of the kindness, compassion and profound respect for the breed that characterizes Arabian horse people. The Arabian Horse Times retinue is deeply See more honored to consider them, and the hundreds— next month maybe thousands—of clients and friends who in the have succeeded them, as cherished members of continuing this magazine’s extended family. coverage of our 40th

2010 U.S. Nationals Preview

Tulsa Rocks! Part I

by Linda White Tulsa, Okla., used to be one of those places you drove through on your way to someplace else. If there was a terrific restaurant, exciting nightlife, a cadre of sparkling actors, musicians and leisure-suited lounge singers, or an ambience in some part of town that rivaled the romantic elegance of, maybe, San Antonio’s River Walk, it was a well-kept secret. Anyway, Tulsa is an entirely different place today, as different from yesterday as Las Vegas is from the planet Neptune. Tulsa, one of the Midwest’s most prosperous cities, has a population approaching one million. Easy access and a central location were high priorities when the “powers that be” were weighing possible national show sites. Locations don’t get much more central than Tulsa, Okla. The city is 60 miles from the exact center of the United States. The Tulsa facility is more than adequate for the ever-growing annual event, and Tulsa folks were excited about their city’s largest-ever equine

extravaganza. The award-winning Tulsa Expo Center (also known as the QuikTrip Center since 2007) has hosted horse shows for many years, but never one on the scale of this one. And yet, facilities management and the city fathers have cheerfully contributed to the effort to deliver everything show management has asked for, and from the exhibitors’ point of view, show personnel, most of whom are volunteers, work diligently the year round to fulfill every request. Show Commission Chair Bill Hughes reports that in addressing and resolving issues, the U.S. National Show Commission works closely with Arabian Professional & Amateur Horseman’s Association liaisons Mary Jane Brown and John Ryan. “We bring input from our customers’, exhibitors’ and professional constituency’s concerns and objections,” Brown explains. “As liaisons, Johnny and I hear

TULSA ROCKS

everything from both sides. Part of our role is to let those people know what can and cannot get done, and it is John’s and my responsibility as APAHA liaisons to provide them with an accessible information pipeline.” In any given nine-day period like a national show, the issues raised might range from objections about undesirable footing to angry tirades against the Pavilion skyboxes. (“And let’s not forget the greasy fried food the facility caterer seems to think is a real delicacy!” an exhibitor’s wife was heard to rant.) “The Show Commission is very receptive,” Mary Jane Brown continues. “They try very hard to give people what they want, even though I’m not always sure what our solutions should be.” She and Ryan are professionals of longstanding whose liaison roles make it easier for exhibitors to approach them about all the things that need to be fixed. The two work effectively together, bringing the information they have gathered to the two U.S. National Show officials’ community listening post. Both groups address immediate problems and explore longerterm needs continually, and discontent has lessened noticeably each year.

So, What’s New? Bill Hughes is looking forward to a number of new and/ or improved show elements. “New items are that we have expanded the size of the main ring in the Ford Truck Arena to better accommodate all the performance horses. Ford is where the majority of those classes will be held, and this should make the place much more exhibitor-friendly. We’ve done what we could. The ring is bigger than last year, and we have made the ends oval, instead of riders having to come up to a flat wall at each end. We added to the ring’s size by reducing the space around the rail to three feet. We picked up 10 to 15 feet of space. All the amateur classes will take place in the Ford, and the new, larger ring will give them a safer space to show in. We have a nice center ring island, and we’re dressing up the main ring and making it prettier. We have added another work arena, and an 88 x 100-foot covered outdoor arena, which really adds to the Ford’s work space. And when it rains, horses still can be worked there, perfectly dry.” What about the skyboxes that became the source of so many complaints? “There is just no way to move

them down, closer to the show ring,” he explains. “The skyboxes haven’t worked out. Only a few people are still interested and have reserved a skybox. Patrons who bought them before were very disappointed. We have newly redesigned the Patrons’ area, and will put the food in the middle, instead of in a long line, like a cafeteria. There are six glass-fronted suites in the Patrons’ area. They have TVs, a small refrigerator, a bar, and Patrons can have their own spaces, with a door they can close. There are six suites, and anybody who is interested in renting one needs to contact AHA. Our hope is that we can rent out all six.

“We will announce the top ten one by one,” he says. “Eight horses will come up, receive their awards and exit the ring. That will leave two horses. This creates so much more suspense. Who is going to win this doggone class? We’ll announce the reserve national champion, and then the champion. This will help create what the halter people have been asking us for. They tell us we have taken the ‘show’ out of ‘horse show.’ This will put some of the excitement back in. We have to get back to the entertainment factor. We complain about how the stands are always so empty—if we want to attract big audiences, we have to entertain them, the way it used to be.

“I’m excited about the changes we’ve made in the halter finals,” he continues. “We have come up with what we hope will be an exciting new in-ring procedure. We’ll bring back 16 horses from the sections, and have them all in the ring at once, so that people can compare them. Breeders have wanted to see all the horses together so that they can make comparisons, and this should please them and many other people. The sessions will be choreographed, so they don’t take forever!

“I’m also excited about Thursday, Friday and Saturday night’s classes in the Pavilion. They will be glamorous and fun. The Mustang arena, which Pat Webb will be managing, will have all the cutters, reiners, working cow horses and trail classes. Footing is always an important element of any show, and each of those four disciplines needs a slightly different footing. The reiners will be first to go, then trail next, then cutting, with working cow coming last. We keep switching the class order around, but the fact is, cutters and working cow horses need deeper footing so they can get traction and not overshoot the cow. We want to give every exhibitor and every horse the opportunity to perform to their highest ability, and footing is a critical factor. Footing is an ongoing deal. People don’t always understand that you can’t put in one footing at the beginning of the show and use it all week for every class and every discipline.

126A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES


TULSA ROCKS

“We meet every day and work with our Operations Manager, Matt Kwapich. Matt is so capable and has such a good grasp of how things should go. He manages Scottsdale, and has managed national shows for years. Pat Webb, who manages the Mustang Arena, is a former show commissioner, a licensed steward, is very active in Region 12, and she is also an NRHA steward. Pat, Matt, and Julie Stewart, who is AHA’s national events coordinator, and I work together closely, accountable to the show commission. You can’t get everything perfect all the time, but we do what we can, to the best of our ability. A friend of mine used to say, ‘If we mess up, we’ll ’fess up,’ and that’s how it is. We get more things right more often every year.” “It was better last year than it was the first year,” John Ryan points out in agreement with his friend and colleague’s assessment. A liked and much respected trainer, he also judged this year’s Youth Nationals. Like Mary Jane Brown, he is a veteran U.S. Nationals participant and regular exhibitor at Canadian Nationals. “The U.S. National show in Tulsa is definitely a work in progress, but this will be a great year, with all the Futurity/Maturity classes (now in their third year at the national show) and the new Select AATR classes added.” Ryan went with the show commissioners on a site visit in March, sat in on meetings, and saw for himself how hard Show Commission members work. “That’s why they get paid those big bucks!” he jokes, knowing that the U.S. National Show Commissioners are all volunteers who donate the hundreds of hours of their time that are necessary to put on a major production like the U.S. National Show. Thy pay their own expenses, too. “They also listen to everybody’s ideas, opinions and complaints, and to their best to accomplish what they can. It’s easy to blame them, but that’s unfair,” Ryan states. “The commissioners ask Mary Jane’s and my opinions, they ask people what they think, and they’re constantly looking for feedback from exhibitors, trainers and breeders. Our job, as APAHA liaisons, is to listen to exhibitors’ concerns and to share them with the board. It’s not about us, or about the board; it’s about these wonderful horses, about their horse show, and, of course, about its sustainability. We want the experience to be so positive that people’s reaction will be, ‘Wow! This is something I want to do!’”

On the backs of Arabian horses since he was five years old, Texas native Alan Clanton has built his reputation by working hard, competing successfully in the show ring and by learning from some of the most notable names in the industry. Alan worked under the tutelage of John O’Hara and Gordon and Wendy Potts of The Brass Ring. Most recently, Alan spent four years at Liberty Meadows Training Center, working with Ryan Strand.

Throughout his career, Alan has earned numerous U.S. and Canadian Top Ten awards as well as multiple regional titles in all the major disciplines, including hunter, western, English and working western (reining specifically.) The horses he has trained and amateur riders he has coached have also seen the winner’s circle at the local, regional and national level. Alan’s philosophy is not only to teach the horse, but also to teach the rider in a positive and encouraging way. “If I can’t make it fun and teach my amateur riders something, they’ll find something else to do with their free time and resources,” he says. “Making it challenging, fun and progressively better are the things that keep people coming back.” Besides working with the amateurs, Alan particularly enjoys starting young horses. “One of my favorite things is to have a horse come into the barn that doesn’t know anything and watch that horse develop and learn over time. My job as the trainer is to take my time, keep their minds solid and teach them their job, one step at a time. If I do my job right, they’ll be good, happy and successful show horses for many years.” Alan’s abilities have been noticed by people outside the barns where he has been employed. In 2006, he was nominated for the APAHA Rising Star Award, bestowed upon young talent in the Arabian horse industry. In 2009, he was selected by the Arabian Horse Association as one of their “30 Under 30” trainers to watch in the years to come. SEP TEMBER 2010 | 155A

You hear their names, admire their beautiful horses and watch them in the warm-up arenas. You might even compete against them in the same division. Here’s a way to get to know your fellow amateur riders better. We’ve asked questions of dozens of amateur riders planning to compete at the 2010 U.S. Nationals. Some of their responses might surprise you, and some might not. Yet, you’ll know your fellow competitors a little bit better after reading them.

KATHERINE L. ALLEN Duvall, Wash. Trainer affiliation: Ron Copple Training Stables What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring? Relax

and listen to your trainer; listen to your horse. Owning and showing a horse is a privileged journey. Remember to breathe and have some fun! What is your most embarrassing show experience? “What happens

at the show, stays at the show.” Surprisingly, nothing earthshaking—I once rode a hunt class without a stirrup. We were a little fast, probably my best hand gallop and transitions ever, and worst-ever posting. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? The challenges change

as we progress. The most constant challenge is in the show pen. I tend to tense up in the shoulders and then my hands elevate. Stretching and breathing exercises help settle the nerves. A bit of lavender oil does wonders. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

Starbucks® Café Verona. Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? I enjoy and look forward

to the Region 5 Spring Daffodil Show. This show is fun, competitive, and youth-involved, and this year had a fantastic fundraiser for cancer awareness. For me, the Daffodil kicks off the show season and always leaves me optimistic. If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be?

For most showgrounds, more warmup and lunging areas. Soft walking paths for hand-walking would be a nice addition. What is your routine before you compete in an important class?

Prepare ahead of time, from riding/ grooming to laying out your boots/ socks and making sure your shirt is ironed. Stretch, breathe and pray for a safe ride. Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without?

Kat DeVol. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? In my

dreams we would be competing at this level! Reality has blessed me with the combination of a lovely filly and Ron. It is mind-blowing how Ron has brought me such a long way in a short time, with me riding my first junior horse. However, I trust my trainer and my horse, so we will give U.S. Nationals our best shot! Dreams do come true!

KATHERINE L. ALLEN

LARA AMES Jordan, Minn. Farm: Cedar Ridge Arabians Trainer affiliation: Eric Krichten at Cedar Ridge and Joel Kiesner at Kiesner Training Inc. What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring? Just

have fun! Don’t get caught up in the color of the ribbon. I started out showing the hand-me-down horses. I showed at county fairs and local shows to begin with, and was just happy to get a ribbon. I showed at a lot of Nationals before I got a top ten. What is your most embarrassing show experience? Showing a park

horse at Region 18 and trying to get qualified for Nationals. I was the only one in the class, and this mare did everything she was not supposed to do. When I reversed, Tom Moore said, “All you have to do is stay on.” As that happened, she started spinning in circles. I stayed on, got my ribbon, but never showed her at Nationals. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? Making enough time

to ride. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

My show clothes and boots! Oh, let’s not forget my hairpiece.

Determine your goals, stick to them, and select the right horse and trainer to get you there. What is your most embarrassing show experience? Falling while

entering the Equidome with my Scottsdale Auction Colt. He jumped in front of me, I tripped and he stayed right there. I got up, dusted off and went on to be in the top five. Falling in the show ring is everyone’s fear. It’s not half as bad as we imagine it.

More ladies restrooms. If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? I would love to have

shown SG Brass Prince. He was the epitome of an amateur halter horse. He was all blow and snort in the show ring, but quieted down and did his job when it was time to show. He had that beautiful front end and correct body. That would have been quite a thrill. What is your routine before you compete in an important class?

Take it slow and easy, and have some time alone to quiet my nerves and focus.

ANN BENSON

Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without? My

Trainer affiliation: Shada, Inc., Guzzo What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring? Work

with as many horses as possible. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? My bad knee. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be? A

carrot booth. Why at a horse show is it so hard to find carrots? If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? Countess Vanessa,

because she is the queen of the English world. Rohara Moon Storm, because I was able to work with him during my tenure in the horse business, and he was such a great horse to watch and work with. Halter would have to be Eternety. I still remember watching Jeff Schall show him at the Nationals: the crowd, the moment, his performance, his motion. You got chills watching it.

Schall. Having him as a friend is a great honor. He takes so much pride in what he does. His personal touch and dedication are really special. I also always enjoy my time around North Arabians. Guzzo and Mike are great; you can always ask their opinion and they give it to you straight, no sugar coating. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? The

My true goal is to win with one I have bred, but at this point, I am having fun finding prospects that we can cultivate and compete with at the Nationals.

TERRY ANNE BOGGS Elk River, Minn. Farm: Midwest Training Centre Trainer affiliation: David Boggs and Eric Krichten What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring?

Learn to ride your horse like your trainer. Listening to and watching your trainer is the best teacher. What is your most embarrassing show experience? I lined up after a

less-than-average ride at a local show. I started chatting with the fellow next to me, and wasn’t listening to the announcements. They called out my number, and I thought, “Geesh, guess they didn’t see that mistake.” I started out of the line, patted my horse, like I was the big winner. Just then the announcer said, “and our next door prize goes to …” I left the ring with my new feed bucket and my fourth place ribbon feeling really special.

What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? Learning to ride my own

ride and not worry about who else is in my class. It’s very freeing if you compete against yourself only, regardless of the number of people in your class. As long as you learn something each time, and improve as you go. Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? Aside from Freedom

Hall as a spectator or competitor, for me nothing beats that Scottsdale sunshine in February! If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be?

Definitely Starbucks®. If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? Afires Heir. Sometimes

losing your breath is a good thing! What is your routine before you compete in an important class? I

don’t really have a routine per se. I do better if I have quiet time before the class to get my mind in the zone. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? As a

young 4-H competitor, Nationals was out of my reach, so I never dwelled on it. For my husband, Nationals was old hat when we met. When he tossed me in the mix and said, “Have

Cypress, Texas Trainer affiliation: Chase Harvill Training Centre What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring?

Get with a great trainer who can get you the right horse to create a winning team, and who you have a great time working with and learn a lot from. This sport is all about relationships—the one between horse and rider and the one between trainer and rider are the two most important to being successful. What is your most embarrassing show experience? Getting dumped

in the middle of a class because another rider cut me off and my horse freaked out. (He didn’t like other horses very much.) I was about 12 years old and totally mortified! What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

Any of my show necessities, like hat, my Caboodle (has all my hair stuff, gloves, pant stays, etc.), show suit, boots and my iPod®. Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? Canadian Nationals.

What is your routine before you compete in an important class? Get

dressed way too early, and mentally ride the class and go over in my head any things I need to remember. The new barn routine is to rub the baby belly for luck from Baby Harvill! Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without? Randy

Horton—my mom and best horse show mom ever! Even though I’m 29 years old, I couldn’t show without her, or at least I wouldn’t look as good doing it. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? Yes,

I did imagine I would show at Nationals. It has always been a goal of mine. I was a youth rider who had only shown for a couple of years when Youth Nationals was started, and I started showing at the national level the inaugural year of that show. LYNDA BURDETT Cumming, Ga. Trainer affiliation: Iron Horse Farms What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be

CARON HORTON-BROOKE

competitive in the show ring? Be

realistic, but set your goals high. Many of your competitors have been riding and showing for years, and experience is critical in the show ring. Show as much as you can, because every class you enter teaches you something valuable. What is your most embarrassing show experience? Getting the

gate because I just ran out of steam—maddening. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? Starting at an

advanced age. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

My “special” stirrups! Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? Canadian Nationals. If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be?

Edible food. If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? There are too many

great ones to choose from to pick just one. What is your routine before you compete in an important class?

I haven’t done this long enough to have a routine. I am always trying something different that might help me focus on the ride and to just breathe.

Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without? My

trainer and best friend, Christine Johnston. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? I

have always been the “watcher” and “supporter” for my show friends, but I finally tried showing for the first time at the scary old age of 54 at a local, open show. I had to borrow everything from a horse to my hunt cap and boots. The horse was more than willing, as most lesson horses are, but none of the clothes really fit. The borrowed boots were cutting off the circulation in my legs and the hunt cap was so large I had to peek out from under the brim to see where I was going. It really didn’t matter where I thought I was going in the ring, because I was definitely floating on cloud nine. I never imagined that I would compete one day at a national level. My previous goal was just to canter a horse and not fall off! Am I ready now? I have my own horse, my own clothes, and the spirit is definitely willing. I just hope I can get this creaky old body to cooperate. Thank goodness for age divisions!

CARRIE CADA Omaha, Neb. Trainer affiliation: John McCarty, Cortese Arabians What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring?

Ride! Ride different disciplines. Ride different horses. Ride with different trainers, regardless of their breed affiliation. All the differences will make you a stronger rider. What is your most embarrassing show experience? Ha! I am not

sure about that, there have been so many—but they make you stronger! One of the great things about showing reining horses is that you learn that today you might be great and tomorrow you might not be, but all eyes are on you, so there is no escaping your disasters. Learn from them, and come back and play harder the next time. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? My biggest challenge is

not being able to ride a lot. I live 600 miles from my horses and I have a 7-year-old son, so travel and practice time is very limited these days. Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? Buckeye is great, good

competition, fun, and easy-going!

When I first started showing, it was at one-day shows, tying my $500 horse to a trailer. That one horse went in every class. That same horse and I competed in 1985 at the U.S. Nationals for our very first time. We qualified by winning at Region 8, and my father very smartly said, “We’d better go to New Mexico. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” We showed in the very first HalfArabian Hunter Pleasure class ever offered. It was an open class, and we went top ten. It was truly an amazing experience. My family and I were hooked, and we have been back every year since. So, I guess my dad decided for me. I think he is sorry, LOL! JEANNA CLANTON Peculiar, Mo.

getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring? Keep

a positive attitude and make sure to have fun. Win or lose, if it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing. What is your most embarrassing show experience? The first year I

showed at U.S. Nationals, I had a 4-year-old Half-Arabian hunter. I was warming him up before the class and he bucked me off in the warmup arena. My trainer dusted me off pretty well (we thought), so I finished warming up and headed to the show ring. I ran into one of my friends on the way, and the first thing she said was, “Did you fall off?” I guess I still had some dirt or shavings in my hair. I actually had a pretty good class despite the interesting warm up. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? Learning to ride

western—especially on a hot horse. It’s so much harder than it looks. I have a lot of respect for the riders that make it look easy. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

My show clothes. I actually had my saddle suit stolen a few years ago, and it isn’t easy finding a substitute on short notice! Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? I’ve never competed at

Scottsdale, but love to go watch— great horses, great weather, and lots of fun parties. My favorite show to compete at is Canadian Nationals. It is usually really laid back, with time to go out and visit with friends. The classes are small but really competitive. If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be?

When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? I used

to drive to Nationals with my mom when they were in Kentucky every other year just to watch, and I would dream of competing there myself one day. It took several years before I had a horse that was good enough and had the finances to be able to afford to go.

What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? Finding the time! I’m a

my first year ever showing, so when I decided to go to Nationals, it was more to take advantage of the select class. Once you have blown select status, you are done at the end of that year. So, after Region 5, I said, ‘What the heck, let’s go!’ Do I think I’m ready? I think I’m definitely ready for the select class because I’m

competing against riders that are in the same boat as me! No matter what the outcome, the experience of going and competing at that level will be more than I ever thought would have been possible! LAURA CROSS Markdale, Ontario Farm: Crosswind Stables Trainer affiliation: Rooker Training Stable and Mancini Training Center What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring? Don’t

expect big ribbons right away, take your time, and find yourself the right horse(s) that you will enjoy riding whether you make it in the ribbons or not. What is your most embarrassing show experience? There are a few to

choose from. One of them would be when I was riding my Half-Arabian country pleasure horse and a huge June bug was riding on my shoulder the whole time. (I am terrified of June bugs!) A bigger one is my first ever class at U.S. Nationals; I was excused. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? Some injuries that ended

a few show seasons early for me. It is not fun sitting on the sidelines. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show

if you accidentally left it at home? I

have forgotten so many things! I have these really cute tie downs that Janet Rooker gave me; those I would need sent to me. Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? Buckeye, and I really miss

the times when the Arabians were at the Royal Winter Fair—that show was always the best! If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be?

Free massage therapy for horse and rider. If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? Apollopalooza. I love

the Half-Arabian I have by him. What is your routine before you compete in an important class?

Drink a lot of water! Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without? I

love having my friends there; it is such a great feeling when you look into the stands and a friend is cheering for you! When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? I have dreamed of it my

whole show career, since my first Arabian. I don’t know if I was ready the first time I went, but you have to get your feet wet sometime.

TEAL DOWLING Spring Prairie, Wis. Trainer affiliation: Price Performance Horses What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring?

Spend a lot of time watching people who are good at the division you are interested in, and learn from them. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? It’s always been getting

time off from school to go to U.S. Nationals. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

My cell phone. Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? Scottsdale. It’s always

such a nice break from the winter months for those of us that live in the Midwest. If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be?

Free Wi-Fi at all national shows. If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? Apollopalooza, Aequus,

LBC Isabeaux or CSP James Dean. I think any of those would be a thrill. What is your routine before you compete in an important class? I

don’t really have a special routine; the only thing I can do is just go out and ride the horse I get that day.

Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without?

Elizabeth Jenkner and I usually go to all of the same shows together, and it’s weird when she and I are competing the same weekend but at different shows now. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? When

I first started showing, I never thought I would be as successful at Nationals as I have been, and I think no one is really sure if they’re ready to show at Nationals until they go there and try. TRACY DOWSON Golden, Colo. Farm: Black Tie Ranch Trainer affiliation: Vicki Humphrey Training Center What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring? Enjoy

the experience. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself or your horse. What is your most embarrassing show experience? Sorry, I don’t have

any good embarrassing stories. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? The biggest challenge

today is the affordability factor.

TEAL DOWLING

What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

I had to have a show harness sent to me while I was at a show. Vicki was not thrilled to discover that I am the only person in the world who does not use a red brow band and cavison. Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? Scottsdale, because they

get people in the stands and vendors selling great things. If you could add any service to the showgrounds, what would it be?

The ATM in Tulsa would only spit out $40 and charged a hefty fee. This could be improved upon. If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? My dream barn would

include many of the greats from many disciplines. Fortunately, I have had the pleasure to ride great horses, like Irish Bug-A-Boo and Madusa. What is your routine before you compete in an important class? My

routine changes with each class and each horse. I would like to lose the show clothes and be able to handwalk the horses and give them a treat just to say thanks. Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without? Last

year my then 16-year-old son got stranded at an airport and couldn’t be with me for my first trail final. Needless to say, I couldn’t really concentrate.

Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without? I

enjoy all my horse showing friends, as they always give me encouragement and confidence. I always look forward to seeing all of them at the shows. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? I have gone to the Nationals

on and off for years, and never imagined that I would be there showing someday. I purchased an exceptionally talented young horse in 2007, and feel that we both have advanced to the degree that we have the ability and opportunity to show at this year’s Nationals.

JESSICA EVERITT Houston, Texas Trainer affiliation: Chase Harvill Training Centre What one recommendation would you make to an amateur rider just getting started who wants to be competitive in the show ring?

Don’t give up just because your first experience didn’t go as you wanted it to. Competitive showing is a work in progress, and there is always something to improve upon whether this is your first show or you’re going to your 10th U.S. Nationals. We wouldn’t be competing in this sport if we wanted it to always be perfect and to never have to work on anything. What is your most embarrassing show experience? My first side

saddle class ever, my mother bought me a bright blue, old-fashioned outfit complete with a top hat and feather. I was, initially, mortified to wear it, but with some persuasion went in the class. The class went well, but when I looked at my friends and family from the line-up, they were motioning for me to look down. I was shocked to see my pink schooling breeches showing through where the zipper of my skirt had broken. From my waist to halfway down my left thigh was neon pink. Apparently this had happened in the second lap of the class and I had ridden almost the entire class flashing my neon jods to

the judge and audience. The moral of the story is, always wear nude breeches under your sidesaddle skirt and make sure you pin the zipper in several places! What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? The upgrade to bigger and

better challenges is one of the hardest things in your riding career. There will be a time when you know your horse and situations so well that you will be too comfortable and want to move up to the next level. But it will continue to make you a better rider if you do. What is the one thing you would have to have sent to you at a show if you accidentally left it at home?

Gloves and hat. They are the hardest to find in the right size if you leave them at home! Besides U.S. Nationals, what is your favorite show to compete at or watch? The January Jubilee in

Katy, Texas. The past two years it has been a double points show, so there are two judges who judge each class. It is interesting to see how the classes are scored, and it is so much fun to show in because you have two opinions placing you. There are also double the prizes for going in a class!

Not only are they versatile, but they will give their all in the show ring and also want to be your best friend. Hucklebey Berry seems to be one of the most naturally talented studs of his time, and is very talented under saddle while still maintaining the beauty of the Arabian breed. What is your routine before you compete in an important class?

After getting myself and my horse ready, I always have to go and give him a pep talk. I tell him what he’s going to see in the arena, that there’s nothing to be worried about, and that he’s the prettiest one out there. I’m pretty confident it makes a difference. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? I

never dreamed I would compete at Nationals. I started in hunter/ jumpers and decided to take some country English pleasure lessons as a whim. But then I fell in love with it. Competing at Nationals is a dream come true.

in Scottsdale, I was very nervous about being in my first big show and truly rode as if I had never ridden before. My horse even started to go to sleep in the line-up! What is the biggest challenge you have overcome in your riding or handling? Using the double bridle,

Breathe, breathe and breathe. If I can slow down and think about how my horse and I respond at home, both of us can relax more. Is there a friend at the show you can’t imagine being without? Kari

Kemper and everyone from Liberty Meadows. We have the best group, and they are so supportive. When you first started showing, did you ever imagine you would be competing at the U.S. Nationals? How long did it take for you to decide that you were ready? Never

did I think I would be going to U.S. Nationals when I started showing. I thank Ryan for pushing me to believe that I could compete at a higher level.

Stall service, i.e., room service. If you could ride or handle any past national champion, who would it be and why? I think I bought

Get a great trainer! I live in Kansas City and my horses are in Texas, so without the awesome team at The Brass Ring I wouldn’t be able to do any of this. What is your most embarrassing show experience? When I was

2010 YOUTH NATIONALS

by Colleen Scott When a small group of dedicated Arabian horse enthusiasts, led by the late Lois Finch, came together with the idea of hosting a Nationals strictly for the youth riders, little did they know that their vision would become what it is today: eight days of competition, 130 classes, nearly 1,000 horses, scores of extracurricular, non-horse related activities for siblings and friends, and a traditional vacation destination for Arabian horse families from 40 states and two Canadian provinces. One of this year’s judges, Chris Culbreth, recalls a time when things were different. “I remember back when our youth classes were held as part of our U.S. National Championship Show,” he says. “We had a limited number of classes for our youth riders, and many were not able to attend due to school. I also remember how hard my good friend, the late Lois Finch, worked along with numerous others to make our Youth Nationals a reality. I know Lois would be proud to see how far we have come. I honestly feel that our Youth Nationals is one of the greatest equestrian competitions in the world.”

Judges at Youth Nationals included, left to right: Chris Culbreth, Karen Homer Brown, and John Ryan.

Mickey Hegg, along with Lollie Ames, Sharon Richards, Diana Bein, Ron Hall and Dave Waggoner comprise the Youth Nationals Show Commission and plan year-round for the show. “This year’s show was a tremendous success,” says Hegg. These young horsemen/ women are just getting better and better.” Held as a separate event now for the 18th year, the 2010 Youth Nationals didn’t disappoint. Here is a look back at what happened in Albuquerque, N.M., the last week of July.

The Competition As always, the competition at Youth Nationals was fierce, with many classes so deep, there could have been multiple national champions. But as the system goes, at the end of all the sections, semi-finals and finals, there can only be one national champion. “The competition was so good, and difficult decisions had to be made,” Culbreth says. “In many classes there were numerous horses that were good enough to be named national champion. The final choice would often come down to the smallest of details.” The two largest classes of the show, Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure JOTR 14-17, with 67 entries, and Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure JTR 14-17, with 72 entries, were both won by Kelsey Kuhn and Stop Th Presses (Majesteit x Calista Afire). Reserve Champion honors in both classes went to the same horse and rider team as well: Madison Stevens and Aflair CF (Allusion AOF x LM Padrons Affair). Kuhn and Stevens have been friends since the two starting riding together (both were with Burkman Centre, although Kuhn now rides with The Brass Ring), and they were competing for their final year at the show, making the victories bittersweet. Kuhn says its being her final year and taking top honors with a good friend were just part of a special equation that began when she and mom bred Stop Th Presses themselves. “We aren’t big breeders, and we just had an idea to breed a mare that had been given to my mom. And he (Stop Th Presses) wasn’t necessarily the most handsome of young horses. But he really has matured and grown into his body,” she says. Of the victories, she adds, “I was bawling. I just didn’t see it coming. It is such a tough division, with a lot of variation in the types of horses, so it is all up to chance and the judging panel. Stop Th Presses is still a junior horse, but he wants to rely on the rider. He wants to do the right thing. I’m so proud of him. He has such a special place in our family.”

Another large class, with 66 entries, was the Half-Arabian Country English Pleasure JOTR 14-17. Koy Moody took home the honors with a unanimous win aboard Pop Star (Afire Bey V x Precisely Poppy). She also captured the championship in the Half-Arabian Country English Pleasure JOTR 14-17 class. The two became a dynamic horse/rider combination when they were paired in June of this year. Although Moody had competed at Youth Nationals in prior years and made it into the elusive top ten, these were her first two national championships. “It was the best thing in the entire world,” she says. “There were a lot of really nice horses in there, and having gone through so many cuts, I was really nervous going into the final.” Moody is eligible to compete for two more years at Youth Nationals. While the Half-Arabian Park Horse JTR 17 and Under didn’t draw the high numbers of the aforementioned classes, it still was a memorable competition, according to Culbreth. “The HalfArabian Park class was the best,” he says. “Our unanimous champion, SA Sophisticated Lady, was expertly ridden, excellently prepared and a blast to watch.” The lovely 10-year-old chestnut mare by AE Excel and out of Cathedral Bells was ridden to the win by Jessica Medved. “Other notable classes ran the gambit, from the country English to the show hack and the showmanship and, of course, the saddle seat equitation,” says Culbreth. “They were all topnotch classes. I had the opportunity to watch some of the western and hunter, which I was not officiating. These classes also looked to be highly competitive and loaded with quality horses.” Laura Doran, a Youth Nationals judge for the first time in her judging career, says that all around, the level of competition in all the classes was incredible. “I had expected it to be good,” she says, “but it was even better than I had thought.” Doran was especially impressed with the high level of riding. “I was amazed at how mature the 14 to 17 riders were. They were so put together and had such great ringmanship skills, I thought I was watching a group of adults.”

The Fun Ice cream, water balloons, stall decorating, golf cart decorating, dog races, flying pigs and more—anyone who has ever attended Youth Nationals knows there is a lot more to it than strictly competition. This year proved no exception.

Arabian Horse Times kicked off its 40th anniversary by sweetening up the showgrounds with a towering cupcake “cake.” Future Times anniversary celebrations will be held at other shows throughout the year, including the U.S. Nationals. Everyone enjoyed the elaborate and delicious hand-held confections. Days later, the traditional Times yearbook photo was taken, this year inside Tingley Coliseum for the first time. As for the stall decorating contest, which centered on the theme of Chills and Thrills, in the large barn category Rhonda Karstin Training Center took home another prize (rumor has it her father helps quite a bit). Their elaborate set-up tied with that of Cactus Rose Ranch. In the medium size category, Green Acres Ranch won, and in the small barn category, it was Arabian Knights Farm. It’s safe to bet there are already plans underway for next year to try to unseat one of this year’s champions! “Our folks do a splendid job at stall decorations, and it’s worth the trip around the barns just to see their innovations,” says Hegg. One of the spontaneous events that took place was the sidewalk sale. According to Hegg, this year the exhibitors were into collecting various items under the darkness of night, then placing the newly-acquired items in front of Jim Lowe’s stalls with a “Fire Sale” sign. “They actually sold some of the items for a very minimal amount of money,” she says. “I know one show commissioner whose chair sold for $1.10, I believe. What a group of entrepreneurs! I am hoping that everything was eventually returned to where it came from originally, and that Jim Lowe’s ‘Lowe Riders,’ along with Jim, had a good time.”

AHYA and the Future An annual occurrence at Youth Nationals is the election of officers for the coming year. The Arabian Horse Youth Association officers for 2010-2011 are Katie Pelphrey, President; Laura Killian, Vice-President; Marissa Jensen, Secretary; and Christian Martens, Treasurer. AHYA plays a critical role as liaison to the Youth Nationals Show Commission and AHA. The organization is also responsible, in conjunction with the Youth Nationals Show Commission and AHA, for a number of the fun activities at Youth Nationals, including the Flying Pigs Fundraiser, Parade of Regions, Stick Horse Class and Workshop, Dog Costume Class, Dog Races, National Hippology Contest and Novice Horse Judging Contest.

With the Flying Pigs Fundraiser, show attendees can purchase toy pigs with numbers on them that are then thrown through a hula hoop in center ring. The pig closest to the middle wins a percentage of the funds, with AHYA keeping the rest. A whopping $906 was added to the piggy bank this year. In addition to the fun events, there are also some more traditional fundraising endeavors, such as the AHYA Consignment Sale, in which show clothing is sold with AHYA keeping a percentage of the proceeds. This year’s consignment sale raised $3,363 for the group. A new event, the Silent Auction, organized by Arabian Horse Times, contributed $2,910 to the AHYA. With items such as artwork, gift cards and more, the auction was a popular way for AHYA supporters to contribute funds and get something in return. Newly-elected AHYA President Katie Pelphrey, who was also the AHA Youth of the Year, had this to say about the show in her first published address to AHYA: “Overall AHYA had a very productive and fun show! We hope that all the exhibitors had fun participating in events we hosted and showing their horses. Youth Nationals is always such a great experience. We hope that any members with dreams of attending will be able to join us in the fun very soon!” Looking forward to next year, Arabian Horse Times and AHYA are excited to announce that they will be working together to generate a common theme for use in advertising and on the show grounds. In previous years, the magazine and yearbook have had a different theme from the show itself. This will help exhibitors develop exciting and fun advertising campaigns and onsite decorations to support those campaigns. The Youth Nationals Show Commission also continues to work toward keeping the show a well-attended and popular vacation destination for Arabian horse enthusiasts. “Our AHYA is working diligently to keep our youth thinking of the future, and we see some significant progress in our continuing dialogue with them,” says Hegg. “They realize that our class schedule is fully maximized, but we will keep our position open to their requests.” This year a photo backdrop was added to the Dairy Barn Arena, and plans are in the works to do something similar in the Horse Arena for 2011. “We measured, and worked with the photographer on a layout for the coming years,” says Hegg. While the competition is intense, the activities endless and the future limitless, what makes Youth Nationals a magical place can’t really be described. It isn’t as simple as a winning horse and rider combination. It isn’t as simple as a group from a certain region that has come together to decorate stalls or a golf cart. It can’t be summed up by the number of exhibitors or number of horses. There is just something special about Youth Nationals, something anyone that has attended wishes could be captured at other shows. Maybe Culbreth described it best. “What I would love to see carried forward to our U.S. Nationals is the energy that the kids bring to the show ring,” he says. “Not just the excitement of how they ride their horses, but the excitement in the stands and around the grounds. The seating could be only partially filled, but when horses were named national champion, it would sound as if the roof was going to come off the building. On the finals nights, when the venue was packed, the sound would be deafening. That is fun!” ■

Looking To The Future:

A New Show To Promote Arabian Horses by Bob Battaglia

You may remember that in the June issue of Arabian Horse Times, I wrote about the creation of a new show for Arabians and Half-Arabians that was in the planning stages. I’m happy to report that the show is becoming a reality. As I wrote then, it is designed along the lines of the old Arabian Horse Fairs, which were popular in the 1970s. In other words, while it will offer exciting competition, it will also include an extensive educational and promotional program to bring more people into Arabian horses. Here are the basics.

234A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

“It will be at Freedom Hall, at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, Louisville, Ky. We expect the inaugural show to be held during the third week of September 2012.”


LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

Where and when will the show be held? It will be at Freedom Hall, at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, Louisville, Ky. We expect the inaugural show to be held during the third week of September 2012.

to spend every moment at the showgrounds. We talked to a broad cross-section of owners, exhibitors and trainers, and the majority of them told us Louisville was where they’d like to go if it were possible.

Scheduling and other attractions. We envision a schedule of competition classes in the morning and evening— probably no afternoons, except on Friday and Saturday. The first few afternoons will be reserved for the educational seminars and demonstrations.

In August 2010, during the Saddlebred World’s Championship Horse Show, a group of us met with KFEC management, told them our ideas, explained our requirements and explored dates. The result was that we locked in the dates and now are waiting for contracts. As soon as the paperwork is signed, the specific dates will be announced.

In addition, we will be working on assembling prize money and attracting corporate sponsorships, and plans call for added entertainment to keep both horse people and the non-horse public involved. How big will the show be? I would have been happy with 300 horses in 2012, but now that I’ve talked to more people, I’ve had to revise that estimate upward. I think we’ll draw about 500 horses. The response we have received has been very, very rewarding. Who’s behind the show? Contrary to some rumors, it is not the Bob Battaglia Show, the Lara Ames Show, or the Arabian Horse Times Show. Yes, I am involved in its production, as is the Ames family, but there are others and we’re asking anyone who is interested to join us in this promotion of the Arabian horse.

A few details about the facility and how we see the show fitting in. In our planning, we have tried to anticipate every requirement there could be in putting on a horse show of the scope we envision. Even so, during our walk-through of the KFEC facility, we came up feedback with more ideas.

“Based on from the Arabian show public, we plan to make a few changes in the traditional Arabian show format. For instance, ‘sections’ will be changed to ‘divisions,’ and eight placings (first through eighth) will be announced.”

A little background. In selecting Louisville, we studied several locations (Atlanta, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Lexington, Memphis, Nashville, Oklahoma City and Orlando), looking for not just a facility that could handle a top-caliber horse show, but one located in a destination city that would please the family and friends of horse people. Most of us do not come alone to our horse shows, and the people who accompany us don’t always want

We were especially impressed with what now is called the North Wing; when the U.S. Nationals were last held in Louisville, it was known as the East Wing, and is where the commercial exhibits and some of the premium stalls were. Since then, it has been completely rebuilt, specifically to accommodate horses. Water and electrical lines are underground, and are set up so water lines run to every other aisle and each stall has an electrical cord. At the Saddlebred show, commercial exhibits and stalls had been set up there, as well as a restaurant which served breakfast, lunch and dinner. (The food and service were very good.) The restaurant made a big difference because it helped the commercial exhibits and gave everyone someplace to relax, get a bite to eat and talk. With this setting, we also will have a commercial exhibit area filled with spectacular shopping. Commercial exhibitors play a vital part in an event’s financial

strength and are an important part of the equation of a successful horse show. Many commercial exhibitors are excited about the possibility of a new and progressive venue to showcase their products. They are very much in support of the Louisville facility, and are anxious to be a part of this new show.

compare dollar to dollar, the added expense is not much more than what we would pay anywhere else and the return is superior.

Innovations we have in mind. Based on feedback from the Arabian show public, we plan to make a few changes in the traditional Arabian show format. For As many of you may know, fire destroyed three of the instance, “sections” will be changed to “divisions,” and shed row barns last year.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

Halter, too, is high on our priority list. We plan to use a scoring system similar to Scottsdale’s, and we will be seeking input from halter owners, breeders and trainers about the specific design of our schedule of competition. What we do know at this point is that we want the halter division to be as much of a treat for its enthusiasts as the performance classes will be to those who ride and drive.

Ideas for the future. We are well aware that we can’t incorporate every idea in our first year. It may be several years before we are able to achieve all our goals. So, we have an extensive “wish list,” and we hope to build the show as we go along. Some of those goals are big and some are just tweaks to an already good format, but the emphasis in on growing, promoting the breed, and including and educating more people about Arabian horses. We feel that if we take our time, listen to our constituency and do our job right, the future can be unlimited. And now, let’s get rolling! At this point, we are two years away from our first show. I think we have a great board started, but as I said before, it’s going to take all hands on deck, so we welcome anyone who shares the vision and wants to get involved. Let me repeat: with our timing, we don’t expect to interfere with any other show; our goal is not to replace or conflict with any existing event, but to offer an alternative that is the major promotional and educational effort we feel the Arabian breed needs now. In talking to people, we’ve found that that is what they want. The past is past, and we’re trying to think ahead to a very positive future. One thing we don’t have yet is the perfect name. We had explored something involving “North American,” but as there is already the North American Livestock Show and Rodeo, so we believe a name with its own definite personality would be better. I’m inviting everyone to suggest their favorite. This show will be all about how exciting and rewarding the Arabian breed is on every level, so we’re asking you

ARABIAN HORSE IN HISTORY

Captain Sadleir's Reluctant Odyssey P A R T

I

by Andrew K. Steen

Probably never in history have the laurels of geographic exploration fallen on an individual more disinclined to receive them than Captain George Foster Sadleir. Certainly, no desert explorer ever gave a more modest account of such a momentous and dangerous journey or was less conscious of its importance. Strangely enough, it was never Captain Sadleir’s ambition or intention to cross Arabia all!

IN HISTORY

e nevertheless deserves a place of honor as one of the greatest desert explorers of all time. In 1819, Sadleir became the first European to traverse the Arabian Peninsula from east to west. Riding mostly on horseback, he crossed more than 1,200 miles of uncharted wilderness “through a country in which the exact position of a single town had never been ascertained.” Traveling amidst the scorched-earth devastation of Ibrahim Pasha’s bloodthirsty conquest of Arabia, Sadleir risked his life every step of the way. Surprisingly, Captain Sadleir sought neither honors nor fame, and attained next to no public recognition for his singular accomplishment during his own lifetime. Therefore, the exploits of those that preceded him to the periphery of western Arabia (Niebuhr, Seetzen and Burckhardt, among others), and all those who afterwards arrived to the Najd Desert (Palgrave, Guarmani, Doughty and the Blunts, etc.,) are much more famous and their respective journeys far better known. Consequently, Sadleir’s fascinating critical commentaries about the Bedouins have been largely ignored by most historians. What slender and belated recognition Captain Sadleir received came only in 1904, with the publication of David George Hogarth’s The Penetration of Arabia—a hard-to-find book which only diehard Arab academics tend to

consult. (Hogarth was the Chief of the Arab Bureau in Cairo and the friend and mentor of T.E. Lawrence, “Lawrence of Arabia.”) Moreover, Sadleir’s astute observations about the Bedouins’ desertbred horses, which played such a crucial role in his fascinating adventure, have thus far been briefly alluded to by only two breed authorities, Major-General William Tweedie and Judith Forbis.

An Exemplary British Soldier At first glance, the protagonist of our story resembles the caricature of a model English officer—without whose qualities and virtues the British Empire never could have been won, but by the same token, the kind of man without whose shortcomings and deficiencies, it might never have been lost. Although Sadleir may seem like the stereotypical, condescending English officer so often portrayed in period-piece movies from the 1930s and 1940s, he was a courageous, highlydisciplined and diligent soldier who habitually carried out his orders far above and beyond the call of duty.

A Long Way To Tipperary George Foster Sadleir was born on January 19, 1789, of Anglo-Irish extraction. He was the second son of James Sadleir, a cotton manufacturer who was originally from Tipperary and later lived at Clonakilty, near Cork, in southwestern Ireland. His mother, Joanna Forster, was from Cork. In

SEP TEMBER 2010 | 239A


1791, James Sadleir became Sheriff of Cork. He was descended from John Sadleir, who in the 17th century had presented a silver mace to the town of Stratford-on-Avon, and was related to both Hamlet Sadleir (the executor of William Shakespeare’s estate) and Thomas Quiney, the celebrated poet’s son-in-law.

Subaltern Of The 47th Foot About Sadleir’s childhood nothing is known except that his formal education ended at age 16, when on April 4, 1805, he enlisted “without purchase” as an ensign (the lowest officer’s rank in the British Army) in the 47th Foot Regiment. The following year, he was promoted to lieutenant. Sadleir saw his first combat in 1807, when his regiment invaded Spain’s eastern colonies in South America, which were then known as Rio de la Plata (after the river which emptied into the Atlantic Ocean in a bay between Uruguay and Argentina). He was present at the British Army’s unsuccessful attack on Montevideo, Uruguay, and participated in the subsequent assault on Buenos Aires, Argentina. However, those rarely mentioned skirmishes were merely sideshows to the colossal battles of the Napoleonic Wars. In December 1807, immediately after that indecisive campaign, the 47th was transferred to Bombay, India, from whence in November of 1809, Sadleir’s regiment was sent on a punitive expedition against the Joasmee pirates at Rās-al-Khaimah on the Persian Gulf.

240A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

Persia And Central India Lieutenant Sadleir’s next assignment took him to Persia (ancient Iran), where he was given his first real opportunity to demonstrate his leadership abilities. Pursuant to an 1809 treaty with Shah Fait Ali (17981834), England’s Ambassador Sir Gore Ouseley had requested “about six lieutenants and ensigns and a number of non-commissioned officers for the purpose of disciplining the Persian troops.” Sadleir was given command of a “detail of 43 men”—much like Lieutenant (later Sir) Henry Creswicke Rawlinson, “The Father of Assyriology,” would be dispatched to train the troops of Fait Ali’s successor, Shah Muhammed, some 20 years later. According to a communiqué by James Morier, Britain’s Minister at the Court of Persia (who, incidentally, authored the classic Hajji Baba of Isfahan), Sadleir and his troops, arrived at the Persian port of Bushire on June 25, 1812, aboard the East India Company’s cruiser Benares. It was a dangerous assignment—two of Sadleir’s predecessors had been murdered by the Persians in 1810 and a third killed by a Russian officer in 1812. During the arduous 1,700 mile return march from Tehran to Bushire, another three of his troops died along the way. Throughout that thorny assignment, Sadleir discharged his duties with distinction and when the military mission ended in 1815, Shah Fait Ali presented him with a sword and a firman, or imperial edict, commending his exemplary service. More importantly, Lieutenant Sadleir was “noticed” in the


THE ARABIAN HORSE

IN HISTORY General Orders by Lord Hastings, the GovernorGeneral and Commander-in-Chief of the Honorable East India Company’s Army. By 1813, Sadleir had ascended to the rank of “Captain on half-pay.” During 1817 and throughout 1818, he participated in the Malwa Campaign in Central India, in which the occupation of Poona (now known as Pune), the subjection of the Princely States of both Scindia and Berar, and the surrender of Nagpur, were achieved. That important engagement was significant because it consolidated the supremacy of British rule throughout almost all of India. Thanks to the favorable impression Sadleir had made upon Lord Hastings, he was chosen to undertake a very dangerous, secret mission into the uncharted depths of the Najd Desert, which inadvertently took him across the entire breadth of the Arabia Peninsula.

Ibrahim Pasha’s Defeat Of The Wahhabies In 1816, 26-year-old Ibrahim Pasha, son of Mohammed Ali, ruler of Egypt, had assumed command of the Egyptian forces in Arabia and the task of defeating the Wahhabie leader, Amir Abdullah Ibn Saoud. (For a more detailed account see: “The Wahhabie Wars” in the March, April and May 2010 editions of the Arabian Horse Times.)

Following two years of extremely violent clashes and the utter destruction of most of the towns of Central Arabia, Ibrahim Pasha had decisively defeated the Wahhabies and reduced their capital at Dir’iyah to ashes and rubble.

The Qawasims Tribes During the Wahhabies’ subjugation of most of Arabia, the Ikhwan (“the Brotherhood”) had compelled—more often forcibly coerced—many Bedouin tribes into their fold. Amongst their most fanatical followers was the confederation of the Qawasim tribes, which dwelled along the coast of the Persian Gulf adjacent to the Straits of Hormuz. At that time the Qawasim mariners were embroiled in a trade war with the Honorable East India Company, and both parties began attacking and sinking the other’s merchant ships. The East India Company viewed the tribes as a dangerous “wildcard” that was capable of disrupting their extremely lucrative trade monopolies. Following Lord Hastings’ declaration that the Qawasim pirates “had damaged the prestige and interests of the British Government,” stern measures were deemed imperative.

Ill-Founded Expectations Far removed from the conflict, in their world of administrative make-believe, the East India

Pasha should be desirous of availing himself of the aid of the British government.” Apparently, it failed to occur to the company’s hierarchy that Ibrahim Pasha never intended to remain in, or administrate, the subjugated Najd territories. The last thing that the Egyptian warlord wanted was to be embroiled in a guerrilla war in such an inhospitable land. Ibrahim Pasha’s only aim had been to obliterate and pillage his enemies—something at which he excelled. Incredibly, that crucial point was not appreciated by the British government in India.

A Fool’s Errand

Ibrahim Pasha

Company’s Board of Governors in Bombay and Calcutta imagined that once the Wahhabis had been vanquished by the Egyptian Army, the Bedouins of the Najd would settle down and revert to their traditional commercial activities. Lord Hastings and his cronies had naively assumed that following the war, the vast Arabian Peninsula would become supremely secure and a plentiful new source of raw materials would become available for its far-flung commercial markets. Consequently, the East India Company deemed it appropriate to dispatch a British officer, “to congratulate Ibrahim Pasha on the reduction of Deriah (Dir’iyah)” and “to coordinate the necessary arrangements with His Excellency with a view to the complete reduction of the Wahabee power. If, as most probably will be the case, His Excellency Ibrahim

242A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

On April 14, 1819, Sadleir sailed from Bombay on the brig-of-war Thetis. Apart from bestowing his congratulations upon Ibrahim Pasha, his orders were “to sound him (out) as to his plans, without showing any material interest in the subject.” Along the way, he was instructed to disembark at Muscat, Oman, and meet with the Imam (Sultan) who was at war with the Qawasims. Incongruously, the Iman of Muscat was one of the Arab potentates that Mohammed Ali had explicitly instructed his son Ibrahim Pasha to reduce to impotence! Predictably, Sadleir’s meetings with the sultan were fruitless. Undoubtedly, he left Muscat much wiser than when he had arrived. From that port, Sadleir sailed on the Honorable Company’s cruiser Mercury to Bushire, where he tendered a letter-ofcredit and withdrew 13,000 rupees. Not speaking a word of Arabic, Sadleir also contracted a moonnshe (interpreter), an unidentified native of Bushire of the Shiite faith whom he mentioned only once in his comprehensive diary. At Bushire, they boarded the schooner Vestal, which sailed to the Arabian

Qutif And The Beni-Kháled Although Sadleir met with Ibrahim Pasha’s representative, Khuleel Agha, in the drowsy little seaport, for all practical purposes the entire Hassa district had fallen under the control of the resentful sheikhs of the Beni-Kháled. The panicky Agha was hastily preparing to fall back across the desert with his small, 60-man garrison before the vengeful tribes slaughtered them all. In all of the confusion, much to his displeasure, Sadleir learned that the Wahhabie headquarters of Dir’iyah had been obliterated and that a general evacuation of the Egyptian army was underway. According to some recently arrived Bedouins, Ibrahim Pasha and the main contingent of his army were bivouacked at the town of Maafuha (now a suburb of Riyadh). However, they all agreed that the Pasha would not dally there for very long.

was the problem of finding suitable transport. “I had experienced much inconvenience from not being provided a horse,” he noted, “and used every exertion to procure one since my arrival in the camp, but owing to the recent disturbances and unsettled state of this country, horses have become very scarce. The few mares that are seen in the Arab camps are kept for breeding. The male foals are seldom considered of sufficient value (in comparison with female) to be reared up. As the owners would be deprived of the use of the dam for several months, the male foals are generally reared on the milk of camels. The few of either offered to me for sale, were miserable colts or old mares, and the price demanded was in the proportion of German Crowns to Bombay Rupees …” Elsewhere he stressed how the bloody conflict had depleted the available supply of horses: “If any of the Arabs in the neighborhood of our route had still in their possession a horse of good caste, the owner would not venture to bring the animal into our camp to offer it for sale, as he might expect his horse would be seized, and then he must return on foot to his camp to be laughed at.”

He then described how the “plan Undoubtedly, had Sadleir usually adopted in the purchase known that Ibrahim Pasha had of horses is worth notice. If the already departed Manfuhuh purchaser sees a horse to his and was marching towards purpose, he applies to the owner, Medina, he would have who permits him to examine the immediately re-embarked for animal, and in some instances India. Understandably perplexed where the horse is known to be because the paramount object of Lord Hastings of a particular breed, a regular his assignment already had been register of his pedigree is produced; frustrated, the captain nevertheless the purchaser then proposes the price, and names the had been ordered to seek out Ibrahim Pasha wherever sum; this is invariably replied to on the part of the he might be.

Sadleir echoed John Lewis Burckhardt’s remarks in these words, “There is something peculiarly original in this method of bargaining; the owner never exposes Amongst the many difficulties that Sadleir his expectations, or the value he sets on his goods encountered at the hostile Beni-Kháled encampment

till he has obtained knowledge of the wants of the purchaser, and the utmost price which he can afford to give. These bargains generally occur with travelers or strangers. The barter, which takes place between the Bedouins, must be very circumscribed. The custom of fixing a value by proposing a certain number of camels as an equivalent is still very common.”

Where Credit Is Due To Sadleir’s credit and to our great profit, he resolved to ride into the dreadful desolation of the Najd and its sea of shifting sand to perform his unpleasant assignment, then return to India as expeditiously as possible. Supposedly, long after his journey, the Bedouins said that Sadleir passed through Arabia “like a bale of goods that had been consigned on the Persian Gulf and delivered on the Red Sea.” Undoubtedly, to them he appeared utterly ridiculous dressed in breeches, riding boots, and wearing a white collar shirt, but ride across Arabia he did. In the process, he recorded what he perceived in the Najd—and in his stiff-necked, supercilious way, he saw a great deal! F.E. Edwards, who wrote an introductory essay to Sadleir’s diary, which was published in 1866 by The Journal of the Royal Central Asian Society, observed, “There is a tradition that he was an Arabic scholar and a man of violent temper. His Diary disproves both assertions … (and) shows him as a quiet, serious

244A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

man of endless patience among ‘turbulent barbarians’ who, unlike the Persians and Indians, had no respect for ‘Sahibs.’ His ignorance of Arabic makes all the more remarkable the fullness of the observations, geographical and otherwise, set down in his Diary.” Throughout his 1,200 mile journey, Sadleir frequently consulted his compass and always dismounted to assure that his readings were accurate. Along the way, he not only inquired about the name and populations of every settlement that he came upon, but was careful to mark the time required to march from one place to another, always making allowances for variations in the speed of his marches. Consequently, cartographers using his data were able to draft the first route-map across the Arabian Peninsula, which proved to be quite accurate decades later when the geographical positions were finally established with exactitude by astronomical observation. Indeed, Sadleir’s annotations proved to be remarkable, when one considers that even the port from which he began his journey had not been defined with absolute certainty on the rather primitive charts of the Persian Gulf, and at the time, the Red Sea had not yet been surveyed by Captain Moresby. The significance of Sadleir’s journey and map of Arabia was underscored by Hogarth, who wrote, “Vast territories still lay unexplored to north and south of that single line drawn across the great peninsula by a man neither over-well equipped for

IN HISTORY observation, nor traveled under conditions the best suited to a geographic pioneer. But, such as it was, his exploration of Nejd remained for very nearly a generation the only experimental test of mediaeval information on that immense region … nor is another European known to have seen anything that Sadleir saw between the Persian Gulf and Medina, till fortyfour years had passed away.” The captain’s detailed chronicle revealed very little interest in the prospects or the retrospect of his journey. He had no previous knowledge of Bedouins or their customs and almost no idea what to expect in the desert. Moreover, he was as ignorant as his superiors in India were about

the Arabic language and the Arabian culture. To Sadleir and to most British soldiers of his politically incorrect era, “all natives were as inconsequential, as they were distasteful.” Not unlike other indignant travelers that felt cheated and mistreated by the “natives,” Sadleir jotted down some guidelines which he suggested be observed by anyone unfortunate enough to follow in his tracks. He specifically urged them to “never pay in advance for services, but always stand by a bargain and exact punishment when deserved.” ■

The Myth Of Arab Piracy In The Gulf Several of the illustrations used in this article were painted “on the spot” by Lieutenant Colonel Charles Hamilton Smith and R. Temple during the 1809 British attack upon the Persian Gulf port of Ras al-Khaimah. Theses sketches were obtained from the book, The Myth Of Arab Piracy In The Gulf, and are reproduced herein with the kind permission of its author, His Highness Sheikh Sultan Doctor bin Muhammad Al-Qasimi, the actual ruler of the Arab Emirate of Sharjah. Utilizing numerous, original, never before published documents and secret dispatches from the East India Company Archives in Bombay, India, this book challenges the long-standing historical premise that Joasmee pirates were responsible for acts of piracy in the Persian Gulf towards the end of the 18th century. In his scholarly work, His Highness argues persuasively that the conflict was in reality an ongoing “trade war” that was initiated by the East India Company, which was determined to monopolize the commercial activities of the vast Northwestern Indian Ocean region by every possible means. Moreover, the East India Company’s accusations of piracy and the need to fight Arab mariners, especially those of the Qawasim tribes that dwelt adjacent to the Straits of Hormuz, was part of an orchestrated campaign to dominate the entire region. During the winter months of 1809, the Company’s gunboats bombarded the port of Ras al-Khaimah, and its army attacked and burnt many other Arab ports in the Persian Gulf. The entire Qawasim fleet of some 300 vessels (each of between 500 and 1,000 tons) was set on fire and sunk while at anchor. Thereafter, the British presence in the Gulf, which had previously been commercial in nature, became distinctly military and political. Deprived of their ocean-going ships, the costal inhabitants could no longer conduct their flourishing sea trade. They were compelled to confine their activities to pearl fishing and its meager rewards that this precarious and arduous occupation provided them. The Myth of Arab Piracy in the Gulf is an exceptionally rich and detailed source of information about the commerce and trade (including Arabian horses) in the Persian Gulf, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, that every aficionado of Arab history and naval warfare will enjoy.

Knowing Your Horse The First Step Toward Using A Bosal—Fitting It Correctly by Tommy Garland

One result of the popularity of western riding over the past 20 years has been a renewed interest in the use of the bosal. Our last few columns—getting the horse light in the snaffle, working off the indirect rein, and developing a relaxed, controlled lope departure—have been good preparation for training him in the bosal, which is a type of noseband that is made up of a rawhide core that is then wrapped in rawhide. With the use of the mecate reins that are tied to the bosal, the horse is controlled by the pressure of the bosal on the side of the horse’s face, on top of his nose, and under his chin. When the horse is light in the snaffle and working comfortably off both reins, and I start to train him for a bosal, I use a training device that is called a “bumper cup.” It’s a bridle you put on that is made up of a leatherwrapped metal nosepiece that goes over the nose and a circular piece of leather-wrapped metal (the cup) that goes under the chin. These two pieces are attached together by adjustable leather straps on each side (see picture 1). When you pick up the reins, the cup cradles the chin and applies pressure to the chin and the nose. When you adjust the bumper cup, you want to do it so that when you release the rein, it’s loose but you have about one finger-width of play, so that when you pull up about one inch, that’s when it takes hold. You don’t

246A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

want it so long that it hits way up under the horse’s jaw (picture 2). It should hit about where a curb chain would hit or a little above that. That location is called the mandible. When you put the bumper cup on to adjust where the front of it lays, take your fingers and slowly squeeze at the horse’s nostrils. Keep working your fingers up from the horse’s nostrils and you’ll feel an indentation above each nostril, and as you go a little higher—to where the bones come together at the top of the nostril—you’ll feel it all come right to where it meets the skull (picture 3). You’ll feel bones coming down and bones running across the front of the nose. They come into a V-shape as you are squeezing, and right above where you stop and feel the V come together, that cartilage is where you want the front of that bumper cup to set and where you’ll want the bosal to set when you are ready to use it (picture 4). When you get it lower on the nose, it has a tendency to cut the wind off. When you pull from one side, where that soft tissue is, the tissue collapses in and it is hard for the horse to breathe. If you have your bumper cup too long underneath and it hits way up under his chin, you don’t have the leverage, so you don’t want it to be so loose that it hits almost under his jowl. I’ve seen people put a bosal on and pull on it and it does nothing because it’s way up under there, almost hitting the horse’s jowl. In a case like that, it’s not adjusted correctly.

Knowing Your Horse When you first start using the bumper cup, the horse will not understand. What he is used to with the snaff le is that when you pull on the right rein, it pulls on the right side of the snaff le and also pushes the left side of his mouth to get him to come around. When you pull with this bumper cup, you don’t have anything pulling through his mouth, so he won’t get it. It’s pulling on the left side of his face, so he doesn’t understand. He feels the pressure on the opposite side of his face and he will push into that pressure. The horse has to learn to come off pressure on the offside from the direction you want to go. You’ve done this before when teaching the horse to be soft in the snaffle and work off the indirect rein; for the bumper cup, you do basically the same thing (the reason everything starts over again is that you have the whole rig on his face, not a snaffle). Because he understands the principles already, it shouldn’t take as long this time—although, if you’re working with a halter horse, it usually takes longer to get used to what that pressure means because they’re used to lifting their head when they feel something under their chin.

A Leg Up Diagnosing Foot Problems: Imaging Modalities That Assist the Veterinarian and Farrier by Heather Smith Thomas Many new diagnostic imaging techniques have come into use during the past few decades. These can sometimes be helpful in resolving a foot problem. However, according to Gary Baxter V.M.D., M.S. (Colorado State University), for most farrier purposes, radiographs are still the most useful imaging tool. “You can get a lot of information from a lateral film,” he says, “and most people recommend also taking what we call a standing horizontal beam—a frontto-back (dorsal-palmar) view of the foot.” In most situations, all you need from a shoeing perspective is radiographs. “These are most helpful when determining how to shoe the horse,” says Baxter. “The other types of imaging are more for diagnosing a lameness problem, for the veterinarian and owner to figure out exactly what’s going on. You generally don’t use an MRI, for instance, in most cases, to know how best to shoe the horse.” The MRI will, however, help you figure out what is wrong, and might help you develop a shoeing protocol after you know which structure within the hoof is injured. “If a horse has no radiographic abnormality in the bone, you might use an MRI to find that the horse has an abnormality in the flexor tendon, for instance,” he explains. “Those horses, depending on their angles on the radiograph, sometimes might benefit from heel elevation or some other type of corrective shoeing. The MRI results in this situation might dictate your shoeing plan, based on what you see on those results. “The same sort of case could be made for horses that have collateral ligament injuries of the coffin joints,” he continues. “Some of those may not be detected on radiographs. Sometimes you can see them on ultrasound, but a lot of times, these must be an MRI diagnosis. You can do some things with shoeing to help minimize the pull of that collateral ligament of the coffin joint. This is another instance when an MRI result might help you with shoeing, but in general, this is not the case.” 248A | AR ABIAN HORSE TIMES

In a puzzling situation, however, where the farrier, veterinarian and owner are working together to try to figure out a problem, you may need to go beyond x-rays to advanced imaging modalities. “Ultrasound of the foot is difficult but can be done,” Baxter cautions, but adds, “Occasionally problems can be diagnosed in the navicular region and flexor tendon with ultrasound. It can be difficult, and is certainly not as effective as an MRI. “The hoof capsule is a barrier to ultrasound, but some veterinarians go down low in the pastern area and ultrasound up through the frog,” he explains. “We don’t tend to do that very much anymore, now that MRI is available, since we can’t evaluate the entire flexor tendon (just the top part, and where it hooks onto P3, or third phalanx bone) with ultrasound through the frog. Certain areas of the navicular bone and deep digital flexor tendon can be hard to image with ultrasound.” There are other modalities available, including thermography. “I don’t use thermography very much,” he says. “This tells you where there’s heat in the foot. Some people use this as an indicator of inflammation. It’s not something you can use to diagnose a specific problem, but it can recognize differences from one side of the foot to the other and might be useful in evaluating laminitis or the beginning of an abscess.” By contrast, the MRI can tell you exactly what is going on in the foot, yet it is not used on a routine basis to help develop a shoeing plan (whether you should raise the heel, lower the heel, etc.). “It is most helpful if you are suspicious that the horse might have a deep flexor tendon injury in the foot, damage to the ligaments surrounding the navicular bone, or a collateral ligament injury in the coffin joint,” Baxter says. “It could also be useful in a horse with navicular syndrome that blocks to the heel but has no radiographic changes. These can be candidates for MRI.


A Leg Up

Venogram A venogram is a radiographic procedure that allows us to see the veins in the hoof capsule, which can’t be seen on a normal radiograph. It shows venous blood supply to the foot, which can be helpful in evaluating, for instance, a laminitis case. If there is any swelling within the hoof capsule or the coffin bone is displaced (rotated or sinking), the blood vessels (arteries and veins) can become occluded or damaged—leaking serum or blood. Bryan Fraley D.V.M., of Fraley and Taydus Equine Podiatry in Paris, Ky., an associate of Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, says that where there is blood there is life, and a venogram can show this. “If there is an area with no blood, or diminished

“The other thing we use MRI for is horses that don’t respond to treatment and the owners want a prognosis— to know whether to keep going with the horse or give it rest or retire it from work. Sometimes we use MRI for that purpose because you don’t want to keep using a horse that will only become more lame. The owner may be having trouble keeping him sound and wants to know exactly what is going on in the foot. The MRI can give you all the information, and you may realize that you can never fix the horse.” Thus an MRI can help you make the proper decisions for a horse’s future. Another option in diagnosing lameness is nuclear scintigraphy, a test in which radioisotopes are used to get a two-dimensional image of a body radiation source. “For foot problems, it may not be as helpful as MRI in a lot of cases—unless you think there might be a non-displaced fracture of the coffin bone or navicular bone or P2 (second phalanx),” says Baxter. “This is where nuclear scintigraphy might be helpful, but you probably would also see this on an MRI. Scintigraphy is a little less expensive, since you don’t have to anesthetize the horse—though you don’t need anesthesia for a standing MRI. Scintigraphy tells you the location, but it doesn’t tell you what structure.” It can confirm your suspicion that a problem is in the foot or lower pastern area, etc., but you may still need MRI to know exactly what is wrong.

blood flow, then we need to find a way to improve the blood flow with shoeing mechanics and/or possibly even surgery—such as a deep digital flexor tenotomy,” he says. “A venogram is accomplished with these steps: One, blocking the leg from the fetlock down with a temporary numbing agent so the horse will tolerate a tourniquet; two, a good tight tourniquet is applied at the level of the fetlock; three, a small catheter is introduced into one of the palmar veins at the pastern level; four, an appropriate amount of contrast material (the amount depending on the horse’s size) is injected into the catheter; this material is radio-opaque, meaning that it shows up white on an x-ray; and five, a series of x-rays is quickly taken, ideally within about 45 seconds.” These x-rays give a good picture of the blood vessels that are functional within the foot.

Computed tomography (CT or “Cat Scan”) can be helpful in figuring out the alignment of a fracture. “We use it to determine where the fracture lines run, and how many there are in horses that have P1 and P2 fractures, to decide whether we can repair them or not,” he says. “From a farrier’s standpoint, however, CT is not that useful. If you have a fracture of the navicular bone or coffin bone, most of the time you’d treat those similarly. “In ranking the imaging modalities for looking at footrelated problems involving farriery, radiographs are still way ahead of everything else,” he continues. “I think that MRI is second most helpful, when you are looking at determining a shoeing plan. Ultrasound would be next, and then scintigraphy, in listing these diagnostics in how they could be useful in foot problems/farriery. In general, scintigraphy and CT would be least helpful because you are not necessarily looking for indication of a fracture for determining how you are going to shoe the foot. That would be for the veterinarian to diagnose—to determine whether to fix it or not surgically.” Some diagnostic imaging modalities may be helpful from a surgical point of view, but not necessarily be something the farrier would be involved with. It is important to work with a veterinarian on difficult foot problems, in order to have as much information as possible in choosing a shoeing plan or treatment strategy for certain horses. ■ SEP TEMBER 2010 | 249A

Handy Horse Tips What You Think … Is … What He Thinks by Lee Bolles

Some of us (especially as we get older) have to spend some time to get physically prepared. You may have to incorporate stretching into your riding preparation. In some instances, occasional chiropractic adjustments or massages might even be helpful (having had both, I can certainly say they are great experiences). If, on occasion, the physical pain is too great and will impact your ability to ride effectively, “The only thing a horse focus on groundwork.

Liberty Meadows Training Center

Where commitment, hard work and fun make a winning combination “If the customers aren’t enjoying themselves while riding, then something is wrong,” says Ryan Strand, Liberty Meadows Training Center, Raymore, Mo. “Our clients put a lot of time, effort and resources into their horses; my job is to help them improve their skills and reach their goals, yet have fun at the same time.” It is a balancing act to be sure and one with a foundation of incredible commitment to the care and individual needs of every horse in the barn. The ability of Ryan and the rest of the Liberty Meadows team to meet the horses’ needs just got a little easier as they moved to a brand new facility owned by Glen and Sharon True. Just a mile from the farm’s previous location, the new Glass Horse Farm was designed with the comfort of both horse and human in mind. The barn and accompanying outbuildings sit atop 70 acres of gently rolling Missouri hills. Outside, coated cable fencing surrounds numerous turn-out paddocks so the horses can enjoy some outdoor grazing time. Inside, the barn is heated to make it more comfortable during the sometimes harsh Missouri winters. Other features include rubber mats in all the stalls, separate work area for the vet and farrier, a round pen, indoor arena with dropped ceiling and an air exchanger to provide ventilation. The new barn also includes a comfortable customer lounge with a kitchen.

“If the customers aren’t enjoying themselves while riding, then something is wrong,”

“We are really excited about the new facility,” says Ryan. “There are a lot of features that make it easier for us to work horses, give lessons and show potential sale horses to buyers.” The customers are excited about it too. Says Reneé Kramer, Red Tail Arabians, “It is one of nicest barns I’ve seen and is really comfortable and inviting - whether you are taking a lesson, looking at sale horses or just visiting.”

“We are really excited about the new facility”

While the commitment to quality has just become easier to achieve with the move to the new facility, the rest of the Liberty Meadows’ success formula, hard work and enjoyment, have been the same since Ryan launched his training operation in 1999. Riding since childhood at the original Strands Arabians in Toddville, Iowa (started by his grandfather in 1958), Ryan also worked with his uncle, Jody Strand, and Stan White Jr. His successes at the helm of Liberty Meadows came quickly in his first year as both he and a client earned Canadian National Championship titles. Since then, the hard work has continued to pay off.


While every trainer can work hard, it also takes some talent to achieve what Ryan has been able to in just over a decade. He attributes many of his skills to his grandfather, Jody and Stan. “One of the most important things my family taught me was to treat every horse individually. Just like people, every horse is different. They have different talents, learning styles and work ethics. As a trainer, my job is to discover what works for that horse on that day. The process is what keeps things interesting and fun. It is easy to be excited about going to work when each day presents different learning opportunities - whether it is trying to teach a horse something new or trying to kick up the competitiveness of an amateur rider,” he says. With the care of the horses and work elements of the equation a given, what Ryan also strives to achieve is making sure his riders have fun. “We do have a lot of fun, both at the shows and at home,” says long-time client Linda Hackett. “Ryan does a really good job of making sure we have productive lessons that help move us forward in achieving our goals, but that we don’t take ourselves so seriously it becomes a chore. I am constantly amazed by the exciting and positive environment Ryan has been able to create in his barn. He is enthusiastic about what he does and it’s contagious.” Both Liberty Meadows clients and Ryan’s team are excited about the upcoming months. After a several year hiatus from the Scottsdale Show, they are planning to make the trip west in February 2011. “With the new heated barn, we will be able to condition horses throughout the winter months more effectively and add the Scottsdale Show to our calendar,” he says. “We’re all looking forward to it.” Ryan is also looking forward to another year of successful sales and marketing. “We’ve sold quite a few horses this year and I think the market is starting to pick up,” he says. “If you have good, quality horses there is a market for them. I think we’ll continue to see sales increase in the coming year.” In the meantime, Ryan and barn owners Glen and Sharon True invite visitors to the new facility. “Come and watch us work horses or give lessons,” says Ryan. “We have really strived to create the right environment for the horses and amateur riders and I think we’ve been successful at that. Everyone associated with Liberty Meadows is passionate about horses, about riding and about winning. It is a great combination.”
