We are grateful for all the remarkable breeders, enthusiasts and friends who call Shada home. Your unyielding commitment to excellence inspires all of us. As we continue to build on our reputation of success and integrity, Shada has been elevated to new heights by all of you! Thank you. The Schall Family and all at Shada


Arabians of Qiran Al Sa’dain, LLC, Lisa East It is so refreshing to have an enthusiastic stallion owner like Lisa, with such creative gifts. She is a “take the bull by the horns” type of person. Her stallion Marjestic has begun to reap the rewards of all of our efforts. He is peaking at just the right time, riding high into Tulsa as one of the top contenders for National Champion Junior Stallion. Lisa’s studs, Marjestic and Ron, have been one of Shada’s 2009 highlights!

Aradon Farm, The Olveys One of the newest members to the Shada family Don, Ellen and their stallion PS Andiamo, are a fantastic addition to an already star studded line up. Their stallion is so magnetic that we just light up when we watch him or speak of him. Show plans including the national futurities are on the horizon. It is going to be exciting!

Avalon Crest, The Steffens It has been such a joy to watch Andy and Christine’s dream become a reality. They have created an absolute first class farm and breeding program while entrusting us with some of the most exotic creatures, such as the exported fi lly Marnika. Such great examples of the power of positive energy!

Brevian Farm, Brad Herman Take what you love and combine it with the desire to help others. That’s indeed what Brad has done with his Arabian horse endeavor. He is sincere, straight forward and full of ambition. Our latest conquest resulted in a Canadian National Top Ten Futurity title with the captivating fi lly New York Thymes. Brad has a real understanding and appreciation for a job well done, that’s who he is!

Daly Pride Arabians, The Truitts Every vision needs reality to make it happen – that’s where Ed and Sarah complement each other tremendously. He conjures up the image and she handles the details. Their dynamic young colt GH Maryn has catapulted them into the winner’s circle and all the excitement that comes with stallion ownership. Hopes are running high with two foals on the way. It’s a time to flourish as we embrace the motto: “No task too tall!”

Day Dream Arabians, Carol Steppe If we had a dime for every time that Carol has been referred to as an outstanding breeder or phenomenal person, we could retire. She and her horses are indelible in our hearts and souls. We have such fondness for her and the beautiful horses she breeds. Better is one day with Carol and her companions than thousands elsewhere!

Deer Haven Arabians, Derus and Gellin Here’s a mother-daughter team with a knack for making just the right moves. Carol and Terri sent their fi rst young star Sohlaris to Shada six years ago. A number of training horses and numerous accolades later, we still laugh together as if we just met. With their new up and coming young Marwan Al Shaqab son, Marvilloso and fantastic group of mares in foal, it is certain that more good times lie ahead!

Elevation Farm, The Blackburns An enthusiastic young couple; Jeremy, Kim and son Cal can now say they have it all! They have JB Hometown Hottie! A sports car with four legs, she is lightening in a bottle! As newcomers to the halter ring, Kim and Hottie are a perfect match. Kim brings the best out in Hottie and vice versa. Everyone was grinning from ear to ear as we watched Hottie win her first national championship in Canada. We have only just begun!

Falconhurst, David Zouch Ross Have you ever met someone who knows more about your lifetime trade while claiming to just be starting? Enter David Ross from Australia. If you need clarification on a who, how or why, go to the man from down under. His great wealth of knowledge (and not just about horses), is inspiring. His wise decisions on breeding and show stock are proof positive of such insight. We look forward to Scottsdale 2010 with Marwan Al Magnifficoo, the stallion that is setting North America on fire and heating up elsewhere!

Gemini Ranch, Duke Mendel The challenge of owning one of the preeminent sires and show stallions in our breed is not an easy one. Duke, since his exciting acquisition of Odyssey SC nearly three years ago, has done a tremendous job of expanding the Odyssey family and continuing the journey. Salute to our 2009 Canadian National Champion Stallion!

G-Force Arabians, The Gromelskis The perfect blend of involved, knowledgeable and informed, Jim and Cindy have been quietly breeding some of the most beautiful athletes in the industry. They are beginning to turn heads in multiple divisions. Look and listen as we turn up the volume in 2010 and make some noise with the newest Maserati WR foal out of an Ali Jamaal mare. Revving up for the future!

H B Arabians, Hilliard & Bruce What an opportunity it was when David Cains rang our phone in the spring of 2009 with John & Christine’s interest in relocating their stallion, Brixx IA. Some six months later, we have all developed a forward-thinking, common goal approach to promoting one of the most beautiful young stallions in the world. Congratulations on your recent Canadian national championship title. The sky is the limit!

Island Arabians, The James When you hear the sincerity and heartfelt way in which Don and wife Ruth speaks of their prized possession mare, Island Elegance, it is truly inspiring. She has brought so much joy not only to them, but also to others in her life: The Pringles, The Friesens, Shada, etc. When Elie wore the national champion mare rose garland this year, she was truly a “Lady in Red.”

Jerland Farms, The Jeromes and The VanHandels It is an understatement to say that Larry and Shelley do things in a big fashion. A big family, large weddings, lots of grandchildren. It comes as no surprise they also promote, breed and show their fine Arabian horses on a grand scale. We’ve experienced both the tears and cheers

SEP TEMBER 20 09 | SHADA • 3


through the glue that holds us together, national champion MPA Giovanni. His Half-Arabian daughter, Blue Moon J, most recently garnered a Canadian national title. Like father, like daughter!

The Kruses With a national top ten and regional championship to his credit, Justin has a cool, calm and collected approach to the show ring. His seemingly lack of nerves translates into high anxiety for mom Laure and the rest of us! Th is mother-son combo can light up a room, their smiles and down to earth attitudes are refreshing for all of us. We are optimistic for big things as their two homebred beauties compete in an upcoming futurity jackpot.

Milestone Arabians, The Miles Take a passion for animals, including horses, and turn it into a family affair. That’s what Steve and Darla are doing. One visit and it hits you like a ton of bricks – great kids, a ranch like heaven on earth and passion – that’s what it is all about. Th is is one hard-working family with a zest not just for Arabian horses, but for life. Wishing you the best with your two yearling stars who’ve earned their spot on the national roster!

Mountain Classic Arabians, The Buxtons It was five years ago when we embarked on a national campaign with Gary and Debra and their futurity fi lly, MCA Eternal Secret. Their horses have always reflected a taste for the finer things and an eye for quality. Following Secret’s national top ten win, she rewarded us with a spectacular son, MCA Prince Marwan. We have come full circle as Prince vies for the futurity colt title in Tulsa!

Park Place Arabians, The Bachmans From the green fields of Wisconsin to sunny Arizona, wherever Bill and Donna go they bring a passion for life. They have been a pillar of hope for all of us. Jeff is the most fortunate since he and Bill converse most frequently, talking candidly, enjoying every step in the process. FoxFire BHF was a big part of our lives, and since his exportation to Australia, the Bachman’s mare line-up has really come together. Their young Marwan son, Casanova PPA is U.S. nationals’ bound and expecting siblings in the Spring. Hang on for what promises to be quite a ride!

Prairie View Farm, The Bensons If we told you our relationship with Punch, Ann and daughter Megan went all the way back to the illustrious Mujibar, you might ask ‘who?’ Although Muj may not be a “who’s who,” their small, yet mightily successful program is! Ann conquered Scottsdale in 2008 and will once again be pursuing the limelight in 2010, MN Breeders and 2011 Scottsdale with auction contenders.

Premier Arabian Farms, The Aspeslaghs We simply don’t get to see Frank and Marji enough. They are hard at work, high on their top of the world Colorado paradise. This year they leased many of their special mares out in hopes of being ready to fire up next year. It is such a delight to work with such good spirited individuals and we look forward to once again being in the winner’s circle with them.

Rehorn Arabians, The Rehorns A decisive, quiet leader that gives his all for the girls in his life, Scott and his wife, Susan, have huge hearts and are extremely good to us. Together we have had a wide range of success, the latest of which is an outstanding auction jackpot colt named Alter Ego RA. Th is one is so good that we are certain to not be in the “Red!”

Shuster Arabians, The Shusters It’s been said that letting clients become friends is dangerous, but is there any other way? When Jason, Devon and Aunt Laura brought their lanky, gorgeous gelding, Relentlyss, to us four years ago, we had no idea of the good times that would ensue. Now a multi-national winner, Jason, Relentlyss and Imagine Fame are part of the Shada landscape. With such fantastic memories already, his horse passion has been ignited!

Tall Timber Arabians, Noel Bosse It was reported that Noel and her adviser Ken Davis were looking for just the right place for their amazing stallion Art Dekko TT. We’re overjoyed by their decision to bring him to Shada. If ever a horse could make you melt, this one does. Noel and her love for Dek remind us all why we enjoy what we’re doing so much. We consider it an honor!

Weber Arabians, The Webers Nestled along a winding road in Minnesota, rests a serene place Hal and Margot call home. Along with daughters Anissa and Anique, they have had an avid life long affinity for and with the Arabian horse. Adding to our already deep roots are those fond family moments when we all, including Felicia, get to rush to the winners circle for the picture. Times to remember!

Western Cross Ranch, The Dillins If exotic is your flavor, Linden and Holly has the Baskin Robbins of Arabian horses. No matter your color preference, purebred or part-bred Arabians, there is a special companion for you in the pasture or stalls of Western Cross Ranch in Texas. WC Ciao Bella, son WC Ciao Psyche and WC Gorgeous Gazal are just a few of the many beauties that have graced Shada in the last couple of years. A program that is “heads” above!

Westridge Farm, The Syllas When Aristokayte came into Mark and Val’s life seven years ago, it was a magical, unforgettable day. Multiple national championships and several outstanding babies later, Aristokayte is irreplaceable. What a blessing she has been to all of us. She has raised the bar for those who have followed. Only the best!

Will-O-Mar, The Summers A pair of spark plugs, Ric and Cecilia are one of the most genuinely nice couples you will ever meet. We are thrilled with their breeding and show success as of late. There’s no one that gets more nervous than Ric when a Will-O-Mar horse is in the ring. He’s here, he’s there, he’s everywhere. We have witnessed him standing far away amongst a group of total strangers during a crucial point in a class. The good news is he always comes back!

ustin is intricately involved in every aspect at Shada. From training to reproduction and everything in between. His vast array of skills and knowledge has prepared him for the formidable task that lies ahead each and every day.

ready to debut on the national stage. In 2000, Miller’s final Youth Nationals, he captured the National Championship in Arabian Gelding In-Hand Junior Owner to Handle 17 & Under. That victory cemented the deal, his life’s vocation would be working with Arabian horses.

Growing up in Kansas City, Kansas, Austin developed his passion for the breed thanks to his mother who was an avid horsewoman and had him riding before he was even in school. “I grew up around Arabians and loved being around them and working with them,” he says. “I never really considered another breed – Arabians are so unique, there was nothing else out there that compared.”

Three and one half years later and counting, Austin remains happy to be part of the team, one that he considers family. “We have a great atmosphere and chemistry here,” he says. His natural talents and genuine love of the horses, combined with a stellar work ethic, makes him a great asset. He has been experiencing success at every turn, from earning open National titles himself, to being the trainer and man behind numerous amateur jackpot wins for Shada’s clients. Austin’s positive attitude and attention to detail is evident. We tip our hat in appreciation for all he does.

He showed as a youth rider in both performance and halter and when his grandfather purchased RH Lexington, he was
