A Vision for the Future Built on 30+ Years of Excellence and Integrity!


Shada, Inc.

WHERE THE FUTURE IS FULL OF PROMISE by Colleen Scott

I enjoyed the opportunity to reminisce with Jeff and Jerry Schall of Elk River, MN about Shada’s first 33 years and their enthusiastic optimism for the future of the breed. The support of Jeff’s wife Roxanne Schall and Jerry’s partner Anissa Weber were at the forefront of our conversation as we gained insights into their next chapter.

JEFF AND ROXANNE SCHALL

“My many years of experience as a professional trainer – 33 – has me where I am today. And where is that?” Jeff asks rhetorically. “I don’t believe you can or should shy away from those years, but embrace them,” he says. “Those many years and experiences have been instrumental in forming me into who and what I have become. So, who and what is that?

“Each and every person in my life has helped formulate my evolution and by extension of that, Shada, Inc. These people are all the fibers from which I, as a horseman, have learned and grown. Just as our breed has evolved, so have the trainers and

owners of these magnificent creatures. I have been blessed with an abundance of success over the years and have developed a

genuine understanding and appreciation for the lifestyle and journey I have been a part of. I am grateful for those around me

– especially my wife, clients, colleagues, family and vital team members Kyle and Jose. They have allowed me to expand and grow into an admirer of the Arabian breed for all of the things it does so well.”

According to Jeff, those of us fortunate enough to be a part of the Arabian horse industry have a special opportunity. “There is nothing easier on the eyes than a beautiful, quality Arabian or Half-Arabian that is excelling in their discipline. It is simply a sight to behold. To be a part of this, whether from afar or within, has truly been a gift.

“As we look to the future, one can’t help but see all the opportunity that exists for our Arabian breed, its breeders and owners. “Let me continue by circling back to my original premise. Where am I? I am at the same address with the same cell phone

number that I started with all those years ago. I love how this speaks to longevity, consistency, fortitude and perseverance.

“And now the answer to who and what I have become? I am Shada’s CEO – Complete Equine Optimist. I believe in this breed and the people (including myself) who devote their time, energy and lives

to perpetuate a positive future for all!”

Jeff ’s wife and an integral part of the business is Roxanne – a small town girl with an affinity for horses and a dream to one day have one of her

own. Sound familiar? This is indeed how the pursuit of such a dream for

many begin, including Roxanne.

Growing up in Washington state, Roxanne and her family had Arabian horses in their lives and a Half-Arabian/Pinto mare became Roxanne’s

first special companion, her true heart horse. After she and Jeff met, Jeff

shares that he knew the mare and Roxanne came together. “I knew from

the beginning that it would be a package deal. If ever Roxanne was to

consider moving from her home state to Minnesota, Hall of Fame would be a part of the transition.”

Roxanne and “Famous Girl” did in fact move to Minnesota in 2001, with both horse and owner becoming an integral part of the Shada team.

Nearly two decades later, Roxanne’s roles include video creation, website management, bookkeeping, routine health care and the countless other

details that go along with the farm and business management.

Moving forward, Roxanne will also be capitalizing on her passion for advancing Shada client horses as performance prospects. “I absolutely love the process, seeing a horse continue to gain confidence and finding reward in the feeling of a job well done. It’s so satisfying,” she says.

Roxanne wants her horses to feel the same way she feels. “The journey and having an excellent ride are more important, whether simply a lesson or in an actual class at a competition. The color of the ribbon is not my motivation. Do I like to win? Sure, who

doesn’t? For me, it’s merely icing on an already delicious cake!”

Like Jeff, Roxanne is confident in the future of the breed, her journey and the aspect of developing performance prospects.

“I am excited about the projects I am currently responsible for and furthering my judging career. I look forward to what the future has in store.”

JERRY SCHALL

Starting in the business just one year after Jeff on the farm that their parents, Dave and Sheila, founded, Jerry shares the same positivity for the future of the breed and industry.

“I think what we have experienced recently in the horse industry reminds me of what happened in 2008 in the housing market. Prices got ahead of values, people purchased homes at inflated values and then everything had to reset itself. We’ve seen a similar pattern in

the horse industry,” he says.

“The good news is that we’re starting to see things turn around. As someone who promotes, trains, sells, buys and markets these horses every single day, I am seeing a difference. Prices are still a little soft, but we have ridden through what I think was the adjustment period. And you can tell everyone that Jerry Schall says it’s a great time to buy a horse!”

Jerry goes on to say he believes the industry has found its footing once again and will start to enjoy a resurgence of popularity on all levels, but especially on the local and regional levels. “One can’t expect to have the national champion stallion, mare or yearling at

every turn. Those are the top one percent of our industry,” he says. “What is still rewarding is to have nice, competitive horses that

we can go out and have fun with on a local, regional and national level.

“We had a time in our industry where people were basically day trading horses, and that wasn’t sustainable,” he adds. “What I’m seeing is that people are going back to what will contribute to making the foundation of the Arabian horse breed strong again.

People are breeding horses for the right reasons – because of their love of the horse.”

“We’ve been doing this a lot of years,” he says about Shada, Inc. “What it’s all about is owning those special horses. When you

have a special horse, a great horse, a quality horse, that’s what gives you a fire in your belly. Now is the perfect opportunity to be a part of this industry.”

And at Shada, Inc., everyone is happy to assist Arabian horse enthusiasts or newcomers on their journey with the breed. Buying,

selling, building a breeding program or bringing along a performance horse, the Schalls have more than 30 years of wisdom and

experience to share. The future is bright all around – for the breed, the industry, and for Shada, Inc.

We acquired LC IMPERATORE (Legacy Of Fame x La Macarena HDM) to diversify our sire line with the infusion of Bey Shah and the rare, very exquisite Aswan son, Antey. LC Imperatore offers the finest of Europe along with our treasured domestic lines. His sire, Legacy Of Fame, National Champion in the U.S., Brazil and Argentina, was as successful a breeding stallion as he was a show horse. Uncompromising athleticism is endemic to Arabian type, something I never will sacrifice. Our great show mare, Alada Psynergy VF+++/, was exemplary in that regard. LC Imperatore is a correct athlete, exuding style and Arabian type of the highest order, a welcome addition as our mares continue to produce our vision of the classic Arabian horse.
