Aria Impresario

Impresario—January 2012

In 2006, two years after Jeff Sloan got back in the Arabian horse business, he put in an order with Michael Byatt for a top-caliber Marwan Al Shaqab son. In January of the following year, Byatt called to say, “I’ve found one of the best in the world.” “It was a huge price to pay for a yearling colt, and therefore a huge risk,” Sloan recalls candidly. “Usually I personally inspect and select all the horses we buy with my own eyes, but in this case, there wasn’t time for that because another buyer was flying in to purchase the colt the next day.” He recalls a defining moment during that phone call. “When I asked Michael how he felt the colt could compete against the 24 | A R A BI A n HoR SE T I MES

other yearling colts at Scottsdale, his answer was a simple and clear statement: ‘It’s irrelevant. He won’t have any competition.’ And that answer told me everything I needed to know to make a decision.” So Sloan rounded up his family—parents Bernie and Deena and brother Rich, who were all part of the horse venture— and bought the colt. They named him Aria Impresario. A leggy yearling son of Marwan, Aria Impresario is out of the Echo Magnifficoo daughter, GC Echlectica, a Scottsdale Senior Champion Mare. The Marwan name on the top side of the pedigree was an immediate attraction, but the distaff side was blue-chip as well. Just as Marwan’s heritage is a balance of Egyptian, Polish, Crabbet and domestic breeding programs, so too


is GC Echlectica’s, but with a fresh infusion of names. She offers more than 40 years of careful breeding by horseman Gerry Canda. The registration on Aria Impresario transferred to the Sloans at the end of January, less than a month before they left for Scottsdale to see their new purchase in action. One class into the show (his yearling age group, which he won), they were fielding offers well in excess of their investment. By that time, however, they knew they were keeping him for the future, both in the show ring and as a breeding stallion. In quick succession, Aria Impresario acquired the unanimous titles of Scottsdale Junior Champion Colt and Scottsdale Grand Champion Junior Stallion, and then added the show’s Supreme Championship. After that, in a steady stream over the next five years, the awards just fell into place: 2007 Region 9 Champion Yearling Colt (unanimous) 2007 U.S. National Champion Sweepstakes Yearling Colt (unanimous) 2009 Region 9 Champion Stallion (unanimous) 2009 U.S. National Reserve Champion Futurity Colt 2009 U.S. National Champion Junior Stallion

Impresario—The Unforgettable Scottsdale Yearling Colt, Unanimous Junior Champion and Supreme Champion

Impresario then was out of the show ring for two years, spending 2011 at stud at Rohara in Florida. Then, when Sloan began to consider a comeback for his star, he consulted David Boggs, who was enthusiastic. Aria Impresario was sent to Midwest that summer, in good physical condition but not in show shape. “Last year, when he came to us in Minnesota, he was not ready for the show ring because he had been breeding,” recalls trainer Alcides Rodrigues. “We started working with him and we knew we had an amazing horse on our hands. We got together— David, Dagmar, me, all the team we have in Minnesota—and we had to put him in perfect condition.”

Impresario—Yearling Unanimous U.S. National Champion Colt

“Obviously, at Midwest we are a team, not just one person,” says Nate White, Midwest’s representative for sales and information. “We work collectively, and that is what makes everything possible. We knew the kind of horse Aria Impresario is, and everybody got involved, working together to fit him up for Scottsdale—and the results proved the efforts of all the staff in the barn and everyone who was part of it.” The photographer Javan, called in to record “the new” Aria Impresario, was impressed. “It’s always a pleasure to work with the Midwest team,” he says. “Stallions like Impresario are one of the reasons why I’ve always enjoyed being an equine photographer. He is so photogenic; I had never photographed him before, so at my first encounter, his superb conformation and attitude were a pleasant surprise. He had all the qualities that I’ve always felt a champion at Scottsdale should reflect.”

Cover Story

That February, in the Valley of the Sun, the stallion trotted into competition with David Boggs on the lead—and trophies, one after another, began a steady procession from center ring to the Midwest barn: 2012 Scottsdale Champion Stallion 6 or 7 Years Old (unanimous) 2012 Scottsdale Senior Champion Stallion (unanimous) 2012 Scottsdale Champion Get of Sire (unanimous) 2012 Scottsdale Supreme Champion Arabian (for the second time in his career)

Impresario— Four-Years-Old

Perhaps more importantly, at Scottsdale this year seven of his foals—from a total foal crop of 57—finished champion, reserve or top ten, accounting for awards in 13 classes. And Sloan notes that in 2011, Aria Impresario was second in number of regional winners as well. The team was delirious with joy—proud of their horse, proud of the effort that had consumed them for months, proud of the titles now listed on Aria Impresario’s record. “He is the only horse in history who has won the Supreme Championship twice,” notes Boggs. “That’s important.” “I feel blessed,” says Rodrigues. “God blessed me by giving me a chance to work with the greatest training center in the world—Midwest—and blessed me to work with these great horses. There was Magnum and DA Valentino, and now I’ve had a chance to work with Aria Impresario.

Impresario—Five-Years-Old

“It was a pleasure to see him in center ring with David Boggs,” he continues. “He made an amazing show, and it was the best when he became Supreme Champion. It made me very proud. Aria Impresario has a great, great heart and he is so honest. I love him.” “Working with Aria Impresario is a great pleasure and honor,” reflects Dagmar Gordiano. “This stallion has amazing quality, a lot of charisma, and character—he has a big, kind heart. Those are qualities you can only find in a true champion. I am very happy and proud for the opportunity to have worked with Impresario and David Boggs. Midwest always has a great show, and this Scottsdale closed on a very high note with Aria Impresario winning the Supreme Championship.”

Impresario— 6-Years-Old, January 2012

Ready to make Scottsdale history ... Again! David Boggs and Impresario— Scottsdale 2012

“He is one of the most amazing show horses that we’ve ever been privileged to work with,” says Nate White. “We’re blessed to represent such an amazing stallion, both in the show ring and in the breeding world.” “As a breeding stallion, I see his place in history as a Scottsdale champion maker,” Jeff Sloan adds. “As a breeder, if you want to go to Scottsdale in the future and have a winner, I think Impresario will make a dramatic impact over the next couple of decades.”

Cover Story

Breeding And MArketing Canda notes that impresario’s pedigree reinforces that capacity recognizing that the stallion’s obvious quality is only part of with his attributes. gC echlectica’s principal contributions were her silhouette and stretch, which enhanced what Marwan offered, the story in commercial success, Sloan discloses that a strong while Marwan softened her look. marketing plan is in the works for impresario offspring. “We’re working right now to develop what will be, in essence, a futurity “He has all of that elegance, refinement, correctness, stretch, program for his foals at Scottsdale,” he says. “We’re going to strength of shoulder and length of neck, and fineness of throat,” allocate a certain portion of his stud fee for a jackpot and pay says Sloan. “in addition, he has great it out based on Scottsdale wins. run the carriage, a presence about himself, a math; i think the prize money should be “This stallion is a gift from God, beautiful intellect and a show ring spirit. significant.” an absolute Schreyer painting impresario is highly intelligent and he is come to life.

At the same time, he can light it of classical Arabian type. It is an understatement to say that impresario foals already are selling for good up in the show ring and be larger than life. he is a thrilling show horse; I prices. “Halter trainer after halter trainer felt as if I had six tigers by the came up to me and said, ‘i love the way “As he has emerged as a stallion, in the tail as he began to build his the impresario foals train and show, and of babies we’ve seen, he is proving to produce stamina for his entrance into course, look!’” he reports. “these guys are all exactly what he should,” he continues. “that the Scottsdale stallion class. going to be looking at the impresario babies makes him very valuable for the following “It was, for me, an experience leading into any given Scottsdale year.” reasons: he tends to produce the things that of great pride and joy to he is, and as a breeder, you need to know present him for such fine the critical factor for breeders, Sloan that. the most important thing about him is persons as the Sloan, Roizner, says, is the stallion’s ability to pass on his that he is consistent, so you can use him in Vara and Nandi families.

Cover Story The New AriA impresArio pArTNership For the past five years, Aria impresario has been owned solely by the sloan family. in october 2011, however, that changed; a conversation at the iowa Gold star between sloan and Carlos and Christiane roizner, of haras Los palmares in Uruguay, opened the door to expanding his family of owners. The roizners and their friends Franco and Fabiana Vara, of haras Don piero, joined in the investment, along with new enthusiasts partha and Kali Nandi. “i thought it was time for him to make a big comeback,” says Carlos roizner, adding that he and his wife, Christiane, had always liked Aria impresario, but had not seen him for a few years. “And we liked the idea of sharing this with Jeff and this beautiful horse.” he notes that they were excited about how the stallion could fit into their breeding program. “owning a part of Arabian history such as Aria impresario with such special friends as Carlos and Chris roizner and Jeff sloan is a dream come true for us,” says Fabiana Vara. “David and Team midwest have become part of our family and now train and show all our horses with incredible results. For Franco and myself, Aria impresario is the standard of the Arabian horse and, more importantly, he produces it.” others, sloan says, are interested as well; the idea is to increase the stallion’s international exposure—and, as always, to have fun. Now Aria impresario’s connections are excitedly contemplating not only the U.s. Nationals in the fall of 2012, but the Brazilian Nationals also, and in January 2013, probably the prestigious punte del este show, Uruguay’s national championships. “we’ve had a beautiful relationship in every way with our new partners,” says sloan, who will continue to market and manage Aria impresario. “it’s been textbook in terms of great personal rapport, which we all believe will result in lifelong friendships between us. it’s how you’d like to see it play out. And we all share a common goal of elevating impresario to the status of one of the most significant Arabian stallions in the world today.” The Aria impresario group is the latest in a line of partnerships organized by sloan. “our primary motivation for being in Arabians,” he emphasizes, “is our pure passion for the Arabian horse and our longtime commitment to the breed.” The family first became involved in 1982 with the establishment of the original Talaria Farm; when it was sold in 1988, they left the business. But in 2004, all it took was one glance at a photograph of pianissima to bring Jeff sloan back to Arabians. he is now the principal shareholder in Aria international, which owns and breeds about 20 to 25 horses, some solely and some in partnerships that he manages (included have been, by sale or on lease, such luminaries as pianissima, el Nabila B, emandoria, piaff pAsB, LD pistal and elandra pAsB, among others). 28 | A r A Bi A N hor se T i mes

“our goal,” sloan says, “is to continue to support the breed by bringing in new enthusiasts who can share in this wonderful lifestyle as we have had the privilege to do.” sloan and his brother rich were the early visionaries and drivers behind the creation of the Arabian Breeders world Cup show and the Arabian horse Breeders Alliance, which sloan is chairman of today. And continuing his tradition of contributing to the breed, sloan is currently working on developing an annual breed conference designed to address issues and make improvements that relate to our beloved Arabians, along with a concept to create a newcomers' institute, to be held several times a year, which would provide an opportunity for newcomers to educate themselves about the breed and about how best they can participate. “i love the competition, obviously, but i also truly love the history and romance of the horse,” he offers. “i try to learn everything i can about the pedigrees, the history and the various breeders that have come before us. You put all that together and i have a real storehouse of knowledge to share with new people, and a real passion for it, which is very contagious and compelling to new enthusiasts. At the same time, because of my business in developing new companies, i deal with a lot of individuals, sources of capital, who invest in new start-up ventures.” often, he says, casual discussions spark those acquaintances’ interest in the horses. “it is unlikely that those people will start a farm or start buying horses on their own,” he points out, “so i put together partnerships as a way to introduce them to Arabian horses as a point of entry. This way they can tip toe into the experience rather than having to dive right into horse ownership on their own. “There is the opportunity to make money in horses,” sloan says, “but i think the reality is that first and foremost, people need to see this as a lifestyle enhancement opportunity. As long as they keep that in perspective, i think that these partnerships will be successful by any measure. whether people make money or lose money, as long as the expectation is made clear, i think they are a wonderful vehicle for introducing people into the Arabian horse and graduating them on to their own programs. we’ve learned how to do it right.” whether it will be supporting our breed with new shows and conferences, introducing new enthusiasts to the breed, or perhaps purchasing world-class Arabians to add to the Aria international program, it will all trace back one way or another to the great Aria impresario as a cornerstone of the program. “There will never be another like him,” sloan says. “he’s a horse of a thousand lifetimes, and for me ... a boy who grew up dreaming of owning a great Arabian horse one day ... to be able to share the journey and live the dream with this great horse ... is a gift for which i’m intensely grateful. i am dedicated to this horse in the deepest way. he will always be the cornerstone of the Aria international program.” ■

Conversation With Luciana Fasano by Mary Kirkman The willowy, tanned woman with the long, dark hair and the headline stallions is instantly recognizable at Arabian shows. Her name is Luciana Fasano, and she burst upon the North American Arabian horse scene two years ago with the purchase of the promising colt AASElishahh. She loved stallions, she said, and she wanted to win national championships. With dizzying speed, she did. AAS-Elishahh became the 2010 U.S. National Champion Breeders Sweepstakes Yearling Colt, and the following year nailed a World Cup Supreme Championship and the U.S. National Championship for 2-Year-Old Colts. His stablemate, Eccentric Valentino, added to the collection with the 2011 U.S. National Championship for Stallions 4-5. By that time, however, Fasano had established her own identity, independent of her horses, in the Arabian community. A vivid woman with a sparkling personality and a generous approach to hospitality, she made friends quickly—and not just for the snazzy parties she threw. “From my heart, I have a passion for Arabian horses,” she says simply. That, her friends say, is apparent. And contagious. Like many other people who are fairly high-profile, who might appear easily defined, Fasano is a good deal more on examination. A lifelong horsewoman who competed in cross country as a child, she has loved Arabians since she was a teenager. When she was in her early 20s, she attended shows in Brazil and became acquainted with the country’s influential bloodlines, knowledge that would stand her well when she established her own operation years later. But in the meantime, life intervened.

38 | A r A BI A N HOr SE T I MES


The daughter of a physician, Fasano made a career for herself by creating a distribution business in the fashion industry, trading in accessories and even designing her own fabric. She met her first husband while on a business trip to the United States, and having long been open to experiencing a different culture, she happily made a home here and gave birth to her son, Felipe. Neither the marriage nor her residence in North America were destined to last, however; her husband moved the family to Vienna, Austria, and she went along, but in time, they went their separate ways. Fasano had to pull herself together and begin again. Her second marriage, to the American robert Jenkins, set the stage for her life today. The couple and Felipe settled in Brazil, and now, her time is divided between São Paulo and the restful retreat of Fazenda Floresta in Itu, where she nurtures her family, entertains guests and pursues that passion for Arabian horses. We begin by asking, what is real life for her? Away from the Arabian shows where most people meet her, what is a normal day? “I wake up at school time and say good-bye to my son,” she replies. “Then I go to the gym; that’s my first priority in the day, and after I finish, I’m ready to start my day. I usually go back to my office and take care of the farm issues and house issues—make sure that the house is well-run—and two or three times a week, I go to visit my parents and spend some time with them.” The gym is more than an indulgence, she emphasizes. Taking care of herself physically, with exercise and healthy eating, is key to her being able to take care of everyone else. And it is part of her ongoing commitment to improving herself. Improvement is a theme in Fasano’s life. If you ask her what has been her proudest achievement, her first reply is her son, Felipe, “who he is and how he acts.” But after that, it is her personal growth. “I must say that I’m proud of the work I have been doing for so many years on trying to be a better person every day,” she says, and it is clear from her tone that she is not boasting. She discusses herself as dispassionately as she would critique a horse. “I see improvement. I like to learn. The fact that I know what I want does not mean that I am arrogant; I know what I want and what I like, and I like to learn. “I would encourage everybody to do that. There is always a little more that you can do—you can improve; you can improve yourself spiritually and with your mind and body and your achievements. I focus on that.” Her choice of reading material reflects her concentration; asked her favorite books, she qualifies that she hasn’t a lot of time to read, but when she does, she usually goes for Louise Hay and Anthony robbins (“books on how you make things better in your life, sort of like turning lemons into lemonade”).

Luciana Fasano “I think, honestly—and this is one thing a person needs to know from the beginning— that everybody is entitled to an achievement as long as they do the work,” she says. “There are little steps to achieve, and those little steps are things like the daily routine you do every day. Those certain things are achievements.” One secret to achieving, she adds, is planning in advance, which also is key to her style of hospitality (and according to those who have experienced her social events, they are definitely achievements). “When I have an event in Brazil like the one for Nationals, I’m usually a month ahead in planning the menu,” she says. “It doesn’t stretch me so much because it’s planned way ahead. And you always have a Plan B. If this dessert doesn’t work, say, that one will.”

Luciana Fasano as a young girl.

Another hallmark of Fasano’s life is her loyalty to the people who staff Fazenda Floresta. “I like to take care of the people that work for us,” she says. “I really think that on our farm, the employees we have are like family to us, and I feel responsible for that.” But what does “take care of ” mean? “They sometimes have special needs,” she says. “For example, some of them sometimes need special medical care.” One, recently, was one of her gardeners. “He got tuberculosis. For five months he was afraid to say that to us because he was afraid to lose his job. We took him to the hospital, to the same doctor who takes care of my dad, one of the greatest doctors in Brazil for lungs. They are treating him right now. He could have died.” And there is her soccer team, which since the Brazilian Nationals has been well known to Americans who have visited the farm. “They are 20 boys from a very poor community close to our house,” Fasano says. “These kids have been with me for almost two years. They come every Saturday to the farm (we pick them up in the bus) and I cook for them. They have a commitment with me; they can only participate on this team if they are doing very well in school. I see their report cards four times a year, and I talk to them and try to give them some guidance in life in how to be and how to react, how to act with their mother and teachers. I am very happy to say that I have seen a lot of improvement.” Where did this desire to take care of people originate? “I think this is what I saw all my life,” she replies. “My parents—especially my father, who was a pediatric surgeon—always, always performed surgeries on all people who needed them, not necessarily the ones who had money. All my life, he told me to be human, to think about other people, to really care about people that don’t have what I have. “To be honest with you, I think it’s all wonderful to have parties, to have horses and the life I have—I have a wonderful life—but I’m always very happy that I can be the person that I am

40 | A r A BI A N HOr SE T I MES


Luciana Fasano for those people that need me: my husband, my son, and the people who work here. The people who take care of my house, my animals, my garden, security—they are very important to me. I grew up in a family where my father has always been a person who took care of people and his employees, and that’s what I learned.” She likes to share her dedication to growth and improvement with them too. An example is the chef who accompanied her to Scottsdale in February, and who was integral to putting on her latest party there. When she hired him, he was straight out of the army, not the latest trendy restaurant. He spent months in Arizona, polishing his skills in a world of new exposure. A cursory glance at the highlights of Luciana Fasano’s life might leave the impression that it has been like one unfolding fairytale, but the truth is that, like most people, she has endured trial and challenge as well. Asked the worst time of her life, her first reply comes easily to mind. “Certainly, when my grandfather died,” she says. “I was very close to him; I used to love to spend my holidays on his farm. I was 14, and it was traumatic.” She weighs her thoughts and then continues, “The second hardest time, I think, would be when I divorced from Felipe’s father. I did not have a lot of support and I was uncertain about what was going to happen. I didn’t have a job, and I had a 4-year-old son.” When she met robert, a widower of five years, she was forthright. “I said to him, ‘I just want to be a wife, like in the old days.’” robert had no objections; he was happy to acquire a family that included Luciana, Felipe and their Pug. She smiles at how they evolved from, originally, internet correspondents to happy couple. “I knew exactly what I wanted,” she relates. “I wanted to meet a man with good character, and I got what I wanted because I wouldn’t settle for anything less! This was my type of man—he is a very special person. He’s very intelligent, and I respect him a lot.” robert and Felipe remain the touchstones of her life. We asked her to talk about them. “My son is 12 years old, and a well-mannered, easy guy,” she offers, adding that he is a gift from God. “I am very strict with his education, I believe. I participate every day in his activities and what he does, and I try to give my guidance to him in terms of having goals and trying to do your best.

“His first time on a horse was when he was 3 months old,” she continues. “He really loved it up to about 7 or 8 years old. We used to go riding almost every weekend at the farm, and I encouraged his love for horses and he was passionate about it. And then as he got older, he started to be more interested in soccer. But he definitely enjoys the horses, he enjoys the parties, he enjoys being around people. In the end, if I say to him, ‘Go to a horse show with me,’ he will come. “My husband has been a part of my life for the last eight years and I think we have accomplished a very nice life together. He decided to come and live in Brazil, and I think he has adapted very well to the Brazilian system.” That, she acknowledges with a smile, is probably not a surprise. “Here, the woman usually does everything for her husband. This is really a cultural thing. In Brazil, that’s how the woman is supposed to be for the man. The man is a provider; the woman takes care of him. So, when you say ‘define my day,’ one of the things I do every day is to make sure that the house is running—working for my husband to do what he does, with no worries about his household.” “That does not mean you are a slave or that you are not allowed to have a free life or a free opinion or anything,” she cautions. “A woman can take care of the house and the family and still be a very strong woman.” robert, she says, understands her passion for the horses and has been her biggest supporter as she has followed her dream. Noting that when one member of a couple is committed to horses and the other one isn’t, it often creates a strain, and we asked how she handles the situation. “I believe that every couple

Luciana Fasano

needs to have individuality or interests,” she says. “Yes, I’m married, but that doesn’t mean I can’t go to a horse show by myself. When I travel, I plan everything in advance and robert will have his routine working the same way. I plan what he eats and what Felipe eats all in advance.” Her house party last fall for guests attending the Brazilian Nationals was an illustration of her take on the subject, she says. She knew that among the couples arriving from North America and Europe, some of the wives would not want to go to the show everyday. So, she turned Fazenda Floresta into a spa for them, with manicurists and hairdressers on hand, offering long, lazy days by a pool for rest, relaxation and unabashed pampering. “A balance needs to be found in marriage,” she says, “if our passion for horses is a couple of steps up from theirs. It can get to a point where [your spouse] is saying, ‘I’m having an overdose of necks and tails and pedigrees and stuff like that.’ But you can work this out. It is important that the person who isn’t as interested in horses does not feel obligated to be at the horse show all day, every day. You can say, ‘Let’s meet for dinner.’” With her experience living in different countries, we asked her to compare life in the United States, Europe, and Brazil. “I love the States,” she responds. “Things work; they are very practical. It’s a great country. I love Europe also, but not to live there—things don’t work as quickly as in the States. Europe has many great things, though, and I love to visit. Brazil is my country; I was born in Brazil and raised here. We have great advantages because now, especially, we are probably the country of the moment in terms of the economy. We may be spoiled in a way, but then, there are issues like security and traffic that I’m not crazy for.

Every time I put my face next to yours, I feel how special you are. You were born to be a 'big star' and I am glad you are with me—we will accomplish a lot together!

“All three places have wonderful things,” she concludes. “I don’t know if I would ever live back in the States, but if I had to choose a place to live and it couldn’t be Brazil, it would be the States.” ■

International Breeders And Fast Friends Carlos and Christiane Roizner of Haras Los Palmares and Franco and Fabiana Vara of Haras Don Piero

F

or years, it has been fair

to say that Punta del Este, Uruguay, wasn’t on the radar for most North Americans. But that has been just in mainstream media; it has, in fact, been a best-kept-secret for the rich and famous for decades. Everyone from Frank Sinatra in the 1960s to George Clooney in the 2000s has contributed to its reputation as the “St. Tropez of Uruguay,” an enticing mid-winter escape for those in cold climates. For American cognoscenti now, however, Uruguay—and particularly Punta del Este—is high on the list of destinations. What may not be so well known is the growing Arabian horse presence there. With their beautiful stud farms and such-fun January national show, Uruguayan horsemen are more than willing to welcome fellow enthusiasts.

Volume 42, No. 10 | 61


One of the leading farms in Uruguay is Christiane and Carlos Roizner’s Haras Los Palmares, and indicative of the new owners who have signed on to the Arabian breed in the past couple of years are the Roizners’ friends, Fabiana and Franco Vara, of Haras Don Piero. Their latest shared venture came when each purchased part-interest in Aria Impresario, one of the most promising young stallions in the world today. That was not their introduction to North American Arabians, however. Both couples regularly show horses not only in South America, but in the United States and Canada as well. Or in other words, the Pan American spirit is alive and well in Uruguay.

A Brief History of CArlos And CHristiAne roizner’s HArAs los PAlmAres When Carlos and Christiane Roizner talk about how they got into Arabians, they do it with a chuckle. No one could accuse them of being prepared; their interest was such that they just jumped in, and the result has been (with eight or nine years of effort) one of the most picturesque farms and successful Arabian horse herds in South America.

Carlos and Christiane Roizner 62 | A R A BI A N HOR Se T I meS


I

t all began when the couple attended a horse show in Barcelona, where they lived at the time. Their background is eclectic: a successful real estate developer, Uruguayan-born Carlos’ business interests are principally in Spain and Poland, and Christiane, who speaks several languages, is from Germany. At the horse show they saw a variety of breeds and decided that Arabians were their favorites, but it wasn’t until they came to Uruguay that they purchased their first horses. That is where the “unexpected” part comes in. It was 2003 or 2004, they recall, when they set off for the Punta del Este Show (Uruguay’s Nationals), but they arrived too late. They could still see horses at an auction, though, so they attended that—and emerged a few hours later as the new owners of three stallions. The trouble was, they had nowhere to put the horses. So, the next day, a realtor friend invited them to see a farm, which they liked so much that they purchased it. In just 24 hours, they were in the horse business and the owners of agricultural property. Their first order of business was to ready the acreage for equine occupation; when they bought it, it had no barn or stallion paddocks. Eventually, all that was sorted out and Haras Los Palmares was born. They did some things right and in some instances they made mistakes, but they learned. On their list of notso-smart moves, they bought a group of mares over the telephone, and when they arrived in Uruguay a few months later to see them, they came to the conclusion that most should be sold. But they learned. In 2006, on their next buying trip, they went to Brazil and found a number of mares who remain the mainstays of their broodmare band today. Also on the “right” side of the ledger, they had selected a son of Laman HVP at that initial auction, which introduced them to Laman HVP himself. In 2007, they purchased the grey stallion who had been a champion in Europe and the Middle East, and entered in the Brazilian Nationals, he promptly handed them the title of Champion Stallion.

HVP

(Don El Chall x Padrons Love Song)

When Laman HVP debuted so auspiciously at the brazilian nationals in 2008, he actually led a contingent from Haras Los Palmares that put the roizners on the map. “We won four championships that year,” Christiane recalls, “Laman, who was the unanimous brazilian national Champion stallion; Justa magnum, who was Junior stallion; Hahirma el Hylan, who was brazilian Champion Junior mare; and Jr burmagny, who was reserve Champion Junior Filly.” The year 2009 proved just as rewarding. it opened at the Uruguayan nationals, where the farm fielded all the top champions, and then progressed to scottsdale. There, the roizners’ entries, Dulcinea bHF, showing with Keith Krichke, and Jr burmagny, led by David boggs, were champion and reserve among 3-Year-old mares. Dulcinea bHF went on to be named scottsdale Champion mare, and at Tulsa in october, she was crowned U.s. national Champion mare. They capped the year with a win at the brazilian nationals, as their homebred yearling filly HLP Darkyna Fame won her class unanimously and was sold at auction for $125,000. The next day, she was named brazilian national reserve Champion Young Filly.

64 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes


The parade rolled on in 2010. Six Haras Los Palmares representatives—Justa Magnum, Mars Simbayeva HEC, HLP Faraon, HLP Felicity Of Laman, HLP Dubai Fame and HLP Delila—took home eight of the top titles at Punta del Este. Later that year, they watched their Khadraj NA daughter, Kharalisa BPA, show with Greg Gallún to the U.S. National Reserve Championship in Breeders Sweepstakes Yearling Fillies. And a few weeks later, their Festywa Alsa, by FA El Shawan, nailed a top ten at the Brazilian Breeders Cup. Last year, David Boggs, with whom the Roizners had opened a relationship when they purchased Justa Magnum in 2007, traveled to Punta del Este to show Laman HVP and Festywa Alsa at the Uruguayan Nationals. They came away with the titles of Champion Stallion and Champion 2-Year-Old Filly. A month later, at Scottsdale, he led the Roizners’ French Psylk to the title of Senior Champion Mare. Then it was off to Las Vegas, where the couple’s homebred HLP Felicity Of Laman finished reserve in her preliminary and top ten in the Yearling Fillies Supreme Championship. And finally, in October, Festywa Alsa was named U.S. National Champion 2-Year-Old Filly, and their newly-purchased LD Pistal was selected the unanimous U.S. National Champion Senior Stallion.

tt was a dazzling record for a farm’s first few years in the show ring, but the Roizners weren’t finished. At the Nationals, as they watched LD Pistal in action, they also were in the process of buying into Aria Impresario. Jeff Sloan, Christiane relates, had approached them at the Iowa Gold Star with an invitation to join a partnership in the young stallion. In Tulsa, they signed on, as did their friends Franco and Fabiana Vara. “We had seen Aria Impresario winning at the Nationals with Michael Byatt a few years ago and also at Scottsdale,” Christiane explains. “But then we did not see him again. Carlos thought it was time for him to make a big comeback, and we liked the idea of sharing this with Jeff and this beautiful horse.” It was not just the potential for championships that attracted them, she says; they could see how the stallion would fit into their breeding program. In February 2012, Aria Impresario told them they had made the right decision when he knocked down trophies at Scottsdale as if they were confetti, in short order being named Scottsdale Champion Stallion 6 or 7 Years Old, Scottsdale Senior Champion Stallion and Scottsdale Supreme Champion Arabian. Just for good measure, he threw in Champion Get of Sire, too. David Boggs led him to the championships, all but one of which (Supreme Champion, his second win that category) were unanimous.

“This stallion is a gift from God, an absolute schreyer painting come to life,” says boggs. “He embodies the courage and fire of a war horse and exudes that look of classical Arabian type. it is an understatement to say that he is a thrilling show horse; i felt as if i had six tigers by the tail as he began to build his stamina for his entrance into the scottsdale stallion class.” At scottsdale as well, the roizners had the pleasure of watching sultan orA, a youngster they had purchased from Janey morse and sold to the marino family, win the title of scottsdale signature Auction Champion Yearling Colt, showing with A.J. marino. “He was amazing,” Christiane says. Under their banner, the colt had won the Weanling Colt Championship at the scottsdale breeders Final the preceding fall. reflecting on their record to date, Christiane considers high points. “i think the year we had the four brazilian national champions,” she ventures, “and last year with Pistal at the U.s. nationals was pretty good too.”

Currently, the Roizners maintain show horses and some breeding stock in the United States as well as Uruguay. With U.S., Brazilian, and Uruguayan national championship trophies already in their collection, it is fair to ask what their goals are at this point. “We want to have maybe a world champion or U.S. national champion bred by us,” she says. “It doesn’t matter if we breed the horse in the States or in Uruguay, but I think it would be nice to breed one— it would be nice for any breeder.” She broadens the context. “Our goal is to breed horses that people like. We have some crosses, like Don El Chall with Magnum, that work really good. The most important thing is to have beautiful horses, so that people like them, and you have to have quality, because sometimes you need to sell.” For the Roizners, the focus is on the halter division because that is what they like. Their plans in the foreseeable future will be to add European shows to their annual schedule, and they haven’t ruled out the possibility, eventually, of competing in the Middle East. What sort of horse attracts them? “I like very typey horses,” says Christiane. “They have to have a beautiful head, good eyes, nice movement, and they have to be kind. We never buy a horse that we don’t like. I don’t care how good the horse is—maybe it will go on and be a national champion—but if I don’t like it, I don’t buy it.”

Franco and Fabiana Vara— catching the excitement oF the UrUgUayan arabian Scene Franco and Fabiana Vara have been in Arabians for about a year and half, ever since they paid a social visit to Haras Los Palmares and purchased their first horses. Like the roizners, the Varas did not waste time when they made up their minds. residents of buenos Aires, they were simply expanding their social network and looking for interesting pastimes when they added a home in Punta del este. A mutual friend took them to Haras Los Palmares for a barbeque, and as is customary with Arabian owners, the roizners presented a few of their horses for entertainment. by the end of the day, the Varas were so intrigued with the horses and the potential for meeting new people worldwide that they became the owners of a Laman HVP filly and a Justa magnum colt. “They said when they buy a horse, they want one who will win,” Christiane recalls. “Carlos said they would, and the following January [at the Uruguayan nationals] the horses did, which was a great beginning.” A month later, the couples traveled together to scottsdale, where French Psylk won her championship, and the World Cup, in Las Vegas, where HLP Felicity of Laman came away with ribbons. Later in the year, the foursome came to the iowa Gold star to see Festywa Alsa win the championship for 2-Year-old mares.

As they have progressed in their new affiliation, the Varas have defined their goals for the operation they call Haras Don Piero: they want to own only very highcaliber horses, and they understand the global nature of the breed. They have since purchased Justa Magnum, Festywa Alsa, HLP Faraon and HLP Felicity of Laman from the Roizners, and when the Roizners were looking into Aria Impresario, the Varas were on board as well. Their original goal of showing grew to include breeding too, and the plan is to incorporate Impresario into their breeding program. They now own eight horses, who reside at Haras Los Palmares and Midwest in the United States, with plans to show and breed in both hemispheres. At the Iowa Gold Star, they purchased top caliber breedings to use on their mares.

Franco and Fabiana Vara

For the future, the Varas are excited about the possibility of perhaps showing Justa Magnum in the United States (he is now at Midwest) before returning him to South America for the Brazilian Nationals. At present, the Roizners are excited with the foals they have from their ownership of the stallion, and predict a successful stud career for the young stallion, who is by Magnum Psyche and out of the Justafire DGL mare, S Justatinkerbell. S Justatinkerbell represents not only the dynamic sire Justafire, but also a dam line of impeccable American domestic breeding, including the Ferzon/Azraff cross. “He produces babies with beautiful necks— really typey—with good eyes and long legs,” Christiane reports. So far, involvement with Arabians has yielded what Franco and Fabiana Vara were looking for: beautiful horses, an international interest, and, very importantly, people that they enjoy. Already, the growing network of friendships stretches both north and south of the equator.

Volume 42, No. 10 | 73


What It’s all about That human factor, both couples are not shy about saying, is important to both the roizners and the Varas. “You have a lot of friends with the Arabian horse,” says Christiane. “That is really nice, because you meet people around the world and you have something in common. They love the same horse and you can share it, and you like to have them come and see your horses and you like to go to their farm. We love, for example, sharing the history of the Arabian horse with dear friends like we did when we were invited to a friend’s home in the United states. We had such a wonderful time, listening to stories and seeing videos.” And there is the pure, quiet love of the horses. “i love to go to my farm and walk the pastures and see the babies,” she says. “sometimes we bring the horses over to the beach and that is really nice too.” both the roizners and the Varas have children—a boy and a girl each—and the children who are old enough to be involved on a personal basis like the Arabians too. “our children love the horses,” Christiane smiles. “They came to scottsdale with us, the first time they’d come to a show in the states. They were feeding the horses at midwest

carrots, having pictures made. Here in Uruguay, they go to school every day, but three or four times a week they come to the farm. They have ponies and they like to ride the horses too, and to take care of them. They love to be with the guys who take care of the horses and clean the barn.” For the roizners, their devotion to Arabians is also a commitment to the breed in Uruguay. Carlos roizner is just finishing a two-year term as president of the sociedad Criadores de Caballos Arabes (Uruguayan Arabian Horse breeders society), and under his leadership, the society has become financially sound. it has grown in membership, and the Uruguayan show calendar has expanded by two shows. in the time the roizners have been breeding Arabians, Christiane says, they have seen a change in the bloodlines popular with breeders there. “in the beginning, Uruguayan breeders were using very old bloodlines,” she says. “They didn’t import new bloodlines and horses.” When she and Carlos did not see the look they liked, they began importing bloodstock from brazil and the United states. “We wanted to do something new and good for the breed,” she says. “The horses that everybody can breed now are impressing the world market and selling very well. now we


have new breeders and we have horses that are competitive everywhere. We are exporting to the U.S. and Europe, and you can see that the breed has improved.” Now everyone is looking to the future. Among the highlights for the Roizners and Varas will be Aria Impresario’s visit to South America in the fall. He is slated to return to the U.S. Nationals in October 2012, and then travel on to the Brazilian Nationals, where he will not only show, but also be introduced to the Brazilian breeders at a gala party. With Punta del Este just two days by van from Indaiatuba, the site of Brazil’s National Show, it also is expected that Impresario will go to Uruguay to prepare for the Uruguayan Nationals. During the trip, breedings will be sold and he can be collected to bank frozen semen in support of his market there. “Owning a part of Impresario is like finishing the circle of the great stallions we own,” Carlos Roizner reflects. “There is Laman HVP, LD Pistal, and now a part of Aria Impresario. For us, for our breeding program, it’s great because they are great stallions, with great bloodlines and pedigrees.” And all of them will make their contributions not just to one continent, but to the world. ■

Mystic sands arabians

by Linda White

T

he past four decades have seen many breeders come and go in Arabians. With the passage of time and changing tastes in horses, few of the celebrated names from the “Golden Age” of the 1970s and 1980s are still in operation, and fewer still are known as reliable sources of bloodstock for today’s market. one program, however, is still here and very much respected: Ken and Donna Topp’s mystic sands Arabians, in West olive, mich. Arabian horse fanciers have been saying, “Wow! What a magnificent horse! You have 80 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

to see it to believe it!” about the mystic sands Arabians for more than 40 years. When the Topps bought their first purebred Arabian, sephira, in march 1970 and took her to FW excalibur, their gift for breeding horses came to life. sephira’s foal, m-s indicator, was their first foal, and the name “indicator” would be prophetic. out of the gate, the mystic sands Arabians have been catalysts, regularly proving the genetic ingredient that would enhance not only their own program, but others as well. Through the years, their formula has been


Mystic sands arabians

to mine the genetic reliability of the Polish bloodlines, infuse outcrosses when necessary, and always focus on quality.

Bandy

(*Flis x Bandera)

“*Bask was our teacher, and his progeny were his proof,” Ken Topp says thoughtfully. “I think we bred to *Bask 18 times. Most often it was to our pure Polish mares, like Bandy, a *Flis daughter (x *Bandera, by Rozmaryn) we bought as a yearling from her breeders, Hal and Arlyne Clay. Bandy produced eight *Bask foals for us, seven fillies and a colt. Five of the six Bandy daughters who were shown were champions.” Two of Bandy’s *Bask daughters, MS Baqueta and MS Batista, were 1977 and 1981 U.S. National Top Ten Mares, respectively. The others produced champions and more than one national winner. Bandy’s 1977 *Bask colt, MS Baquero, earned championships in halter and in park with Tim Shea, and won 1992 Canadian National Reserve Champion in Park, and multi-U.S. National Top Ten park horse and formal driving, shown to the national titles by industry leader Lasma Arabians. “The Topps really supported my work in the early days of my career,” says Shea. “I met them when I was working for Sir William Farm. Sir William sent me out to their place in Scottsdale, and the Topps had a ranch right across the street. Within a day or two of my arrival, they came over to look at horses. They were always passionate about breeding

“*Bask was our teacher, and his progeny were his proof.” – Ken Topp

Arabians. They made a lot of sacrifices to buy the best mares they could get and breed them to the best. For years, when they went out to Scottsdale, they stayed in a camper. They put all their money and effort into Arabian horses. “They bred a lot of mares to *Bask,” he continues, “and I met the LaCroixes through them while I was at Sir William. The LaCroixes and Lasma were the next step in my career. When I came back to Michigan in 1975, Ken and Donna sent me MS Baqueta at 2. I got her ready for halter and showed her to the 1976 Region 13 Mare Championship. The following spring they sent her out to Lasma to be bred.” Volume 42, No. 10 | 81


Mystic sands arabians

“We bred her to *el Paso,” Ken Topp recalls. “We left her at Lasma and raymond LaCroix showed her to a 1977 U.s. national Top Ten mare title while she was carrying her *el Paso foal. ms ellusion was the result of that breeding.” ms ellusion had a number of halter wins and championships, including top tens at scottsdale and the Canadian nationals, and sired 257 foals. “The Topps next sent me ms baquero,” shea resumes, “and he won with me several times in hand, and was the 1980 region 13 reserve Champion stallion. Then i broke him under saddle. We won quite a few park championships from August of 1980 through 1982, and then he went to the LaCroixes.

MS Baqueta (*Bask x Bandy)

“in 1976 the Topps bought sW saruchna (*sambor x *Druchna, by rozmaryn) at the sir William production sale and bred her, at 3, to *bask the next year,” he adds. “ms santana was the result of that breeding. They sent ms santana to me as a long yearling in the fall of 1979 and i trained him for halter. He won his 3-year-old class with me at the 1981 ohio buckeye and was named 1981 region 13 Champion stallion. At that point in my career, the Topps were right there for me. We became friends. marty and i always have a great time visiting with them when we go to scottsdale.” “Ken and Donna are truly wonderful people,” agrees Gene LaCroix. “They are very dedicated to the Arabian horse, and they were very faithful to the Lasma program. They bred quite a few mares to *bask, and they also brought some mares out to breed to *Aladdinn. They have always bred for beauty and athleticism. They purchased Tomorrows

Dream, an *Aladdinn daughter out of a *Bask daughter, in 1989 from Carol Curran, who bought her from us before she was weaned.”

MS BaquEro (*Bask x Bandy) MS ElluSion (*El Paso x MS Baqueta)

In 1994 the Topps leased Tomorrows Dream to Darrell and Sandy Coker, who took the mare to Padrons Psyche. Psymadre was Tomorrows Dream’s 1995 colt. Psymadre’s dossier reads like a rock and roll legend’s. Its opening salvo is his win of a 35-entry 2-year-old class at Scottsdale and being named the 1997 Scottsdale Champion Stallion. In 1998, he was selected Canadian National Reserve Champion Stallion, and got the nod for a U.S. National Top Ten. Other accolades include U.S. and Canadian National Top Ten Stallion titles in 1999 and 2001. Psymadre, now 17, is a happy, healthy citizen at Ventura Farms, his owner since 1998. “Sometimes pure Polish needs a little pretty,” Ken Topp says of their breeding philosophy. “We have bred and owned a number of pure Polish mares, and for today’s market we have taken them to Padrons Psyche, Magnum Psyche, DA Valentino and several other typey, really well-structured stallions with great temperaments.” MS Balinta (*Bask x Bandy, by *Flis) and Tomorrows Dream are only two of the Mystic Sands mares who have out-crossed especially well on one or more of the stallions Topp mentions. Among the successful results is MS Magnum Max, MS Balinta’s bay Magnum Psyche colt, who was 2007 Region 6 Reserve Champion Stallion AOTH; and Psymadre’s full brother, MS Freedom, a 2004 U.S. National Top Ten Futurity Colt, twice Scottsdale Top Ten and frequent regional and class A halter and hunter pleasure winner. Trainer David Boggs has led a number of Mystic Sands show ring notables into the winner’s circle. “I am always amazed as I walk through their barns Volume 42, No. 10 | 83

MS Balinta (*Bask x Bandy) and fields,” he says candidly. “Their broodmare band is second to none. Ken and Donna have been my friends and clients for many years, and we have enjoyed successes with many of the youngsters they’ve bred, like Psymadre, who became a superstar. We currently are having great success with their young DA Valentino son, ms Khasanova.”

MS Santana (*Bask x SW Saruchna)

ms Khasanova (x ms Khandi, by barisznikov) was a 2012 scottsdale signature Top Ten Yearling Colt. His dam is a mystic sands-bred mare, as was his second dam, ms Kalie, by Probat. ms Kalie was out of *Kampania, an imported *bandos daughter the Topps bought in 1990. Dr. Armand Hammer’s oxy Arabians had imported *Kampania (x Kama, by eleuzis) to the United states from Poland in 1981. “i have always admired ms santana, the great *bask son they bred,” boggs adds. He is not alone. ms santana is a story unto himself. The bay pure Polish stallion caught the public’s attention early. in 1981, Tim shea led him to a win of his class and reserve Champion stallion honors at the ohio buckeye sweepstakes, the region 13 Championship and region 14 reserve Championship— all at the age of 3! The following year he won both his classes and the stallion championships at the buckeye and the michigan All-Arab Horse show. by 1982, he was ready to take the national stage. 84 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

PSyMadre (Padrons Psyche x tomorrows dream) sure enough, ms santana became the 1983 U.s. national Top Ten stallion and unanimous Canadian national Champion stallion. He was shown only once in 1984, to a reserve in his class at scottsdale, and was out of the show ring entirely in 1985. ms santana


Mystic sands arabians

returned to competition in 1986 with Raymond LaCroix to be named the U.S. National Champion Stallion, again unanimously, out of 43 entries. “And I have the videos to verify that both of Santana’s national championships were unanimous!” says Donna Topp, removing any doubt.

MS KhaSanova (da valentino x MS Khandi)

By 1986, MS Santana had a number of promising offspring on the ground. “We stood him for three years,” says Tim Shea. “He bred a few mares as a 2-year-old, 77 mares when he was three, and when he was a 4-year-old, he bred 140 mares.” Shea shakes his head, smiling broadly. MS Santana’s popularity as a sire was not unexpected. His show ring record spoke for itself. To add to his allure, he was descended from the Kuhailan Haifi sire line, the most successful in Poland for siring show ring winners. His grandsire, Witraz, was one of the three “W” Ofir sons who survived World War II. Witraz and Wielki Szlem came through the bombing of Dresden, saved only by a groom’s tenacity, and *Witez II was brought to the United States in a group of horses rescued by Gen. George Patton in the closing days of the war. All three—*Witez II in person, and Witraz and Wielki Szlem through their offspring—made incalculable contributions to the Arabian horse gene pool worldwide. At the time of his death in June 2008, MS Santana had sired 627 foals. The last of these, MS Trilagie (x MS Tabetha, by Barisznikov), whose second dam was Tomorrows Dream, was bred by the Topps.

MS FreedoM (Padrons Psyche x Tomorrows dream)

Ohio horseman Tim Von Duyke hauled more than one of the Mystic Sands mares to Lasma in the days when *Bask was at the top of his game. “When we would stop for fuel,” Von Duyke remembers, “we would open the feed doors to let the horses put their heads out and get some fresh air. The Topps sent beautiful, beautiful mares to *Bask. People were drawn to them all along the way. Many folks told us they just knew these were Arabian horses because they were so gorgeous.” n Volume 42, No. 10 | 85

A PrevieW APril 19-22 • Las Vegas, NeVada by Linda White

“World Cup” is an identity that creates a ripple of excitement in any context. No matter the competition—rugby, auto racing, downhill skiing or international soccer—public interest is always aroused. The Arabian Breeders World Cup, now in its sixth year, is no different. When Arabian Horse Breeders’ Alliance founders came up with the concept, international participation was a big part of the dream. “People come from far and near to see the best horses in the world,” says Taryl o’shea, who has been the show’s manager since the beginning. “The horses are ‘on stage;’ this is a very high-end show, with an infrastructure that attracts an international complement of the world’s best horses and breeders. They come to compete on an absolutely fair, unbiased level. its prestige grows from year to year.” “The World Cup is the perfect meeting place for an international group of Arabian horse people,” notes Phyllis Lamalfa, the show’s executive director. “The horses that come here are competitive anywhere. This show has single-handedly changed the face of the Arabian halter show ring in America. 90 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

“The quality, sponsorship and worldwide constituency continues to grow,” she adds. “This year we ordered 35 flags to go around the show arena; that’s a flag for each country that will be participating— countries from north America, of course, and europe, south America, north Africa and the middle east, as well as Australia. The Aussies are great fun! many Australians have come as spectators in past years, and now, they are bringing their horses.” scott bailey, founding member and AHbA board member offers another hallmark of the show. “We have been profitable each year,” he says. “We have a new premium sponsor this year—Al shahania stud of Doha, Qatar—and we will have visitors from Kuwait coming over this year.


ArAbiAn breeders World Cup previeW

Wherever I go, people are excited about the show. They recognize the prestige, the quality, the integrity— and the fun. People want to be here.”

The Formula For Success How did the AHBA’s dream become reality? “Several of us had discussed the idea,” explains AHBA board member Jeff Sloan. “We contacted a group of like-minded Arabian horse breeders, and we met at the 2005 U.S. Nationals in Albuquerque. We agreed to call ourselves the Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance, and our purpose would be to promote the Arabian horse on a whole new level. We would create and host a horse show unlike any other, in a great city, not only to captivate and encourage interest in the breed, but also to allow the world to see what a wonderful lifestyle experience the Arabian horse can provide.” “We wanted to make the show fun,” confirms founding member and AHBA board member Bob North. “First of all, we don’t have a class schedule that

runs from 7 a.m. until the wee hours, like the exhausting marathons some of today’s shows have become. Secondly, because the World Cup show is held in Las Vegas, except for our opening night’s gala, classes are over by 5 p.m., giving people time to enjoy the show, and take in the Las Vegas experience. Our classes start at 9 a.m.” Another aspect of the show that contributes to its increasing popularity is location, location, location. The South Point Hotel and Casino bills itself as the nation’s finest. Its Equestrian and Events Center features a 4,600-seat arena with a 250 x 125-foot floor. Another advantage is the facility’s 1,200 comfortable, permanent stalls, which are climate-controlled, creating an ideal setting for horses that come in from a variety of climates. The cherry on the frosting is the hotel itself, and Las Vegas is—well, Las Vegas. The “Vegas factor” is featured annually at the World Cup’s Opening Night Gala, a highly-successful event that provides an opportunity for horsemen to see old friends, meet

new ones, network and have a grand time. This year the party will be on Thursday evening, April 19, at the Mirage Hotel and Casino’s exotic new 1 OAK nightclub. “Each year we try to find a different high-end nightclub where people will have fun,” explains Bailey. “The 1 OAK opened on New Year’s Eve 2012, so it will be a new experience that will give people another glimpse of Las Vegas.” “Las Vegas is an affordable place to visit,” Taryl O’Shea adds. “People have made the World Cup a priority in planning their year’s schedules because this show is not out of reach for them. Unlike some shows, with exhausting, endless schedules, the World Cup is an escape from reality—a vacation.”

Judges, Standards And Rules Another highlight of the World Cup is the credibility of its judges. This year, the panel will be Scott Brumfield from the United States; Volume 42, No. 10 | 91

bolivar Figueiredo of brazil; Holger ismer from Germany; Paul Kostial also from the United states; south African Fanie maritz; and renata schibler of switzerland. “We wanted to create a show that would be as fair to exhibitors as possible,” bob north says. “To do that we hire an international panel of six highly-respected judges who come to the show with no biases, preconceptions or other agendas.” “For several judges, it was their first time in the United states,” notes scott bailey, “and for most of them, the first time they have ever seen the horses being presented to them. We have never had a judge turn us down.” not only is impartiality a given, but also the judging system is designed to enhance fairness. before each class, an audience member draws a name from a hat. The judge whose name is drawn will sit out that class, leaving five of the six to officiate. each will award his or her separate scores on a 10- to 20-point scale in 92 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

hesitate because they don’t care to show the foal themselves. Another drawback is that sometimes people will stage a bogus ‘sale’ to a more experienced ‘owner-handler’ a week or two before the show. This gives the foal being shown a better advantage.

The Las Vegas World Cup also adheres to important standards of conduct. The show is UseF recognized, but not rated. notwithstanding, any violations of two key UseF rules will result in dismissal from the ring and/or other sanctions. The first rule outlaws whip contact or visible intimidation of an animal by its handler. secondly, one handler may show multiple horses in the same class provided his waiting horses are under control.

“That is why, when we set up the futurity, we specified ‘ATH’ (not ‘AO TH’) for all classes,” he continues. “We have yearling futurity classes for fillies and colts, and both 2-year-old classes are divided by gender. We expect to pay out around $60,000 in the 2012 Yearling AHbA Futurity entries, and around $68,000 to our 2-year-old winners. That gives every eligible foal two chances to win.

AHBA Futurities bob north, who heads the AHbA Futurity, outlines the incentive program. “some futurities specify amateur owner-to-handle classes. This discourages bidders who may want to buy a stallion service, but

“Winnings are paid out equally; 25 percent is available to each of the four classes. Add to those amounts all of the $500-per-horse entry fees for those classes. The payout comes from three sources. one-fourth comes from the AHbA stallion Auction proceeds. As of now, 46 stallions will be participating. one-fourth of the payout comes from the $500 annual

2012 Educational Seminars Include:

Friday, April 20, 7:30 a.m. “What’s

From unique opportunities to the handling of foreign bank account reports, Husband will discuss global tax law and its implications for horse owners.

entry fee for stallions participating in the auction, and half the payout comes from the $500 per horse class entry fees.” North then discusses the World Cup Legacy Program, new last year. The first Legacy Program foals will appear in 2013, but not in separate classes. Legacy foals will be judged in their regular classes, with the Legacy payouts going to the highest scorers among the Legacy enrollees.

Educational Seminars Education has always been an important adjunct of the ABHA’s vision. Each year some of the world’s most respected authorities in Arabian horse-related subjects have shared their knowledge and experience in the show’s Friday and Saturday seminars. This year will be augmented by the new World Cup Café. “The World Cup Café is located where the seminars take place,” says O’Shea, “so that

people can buy and enjoy lunch without having to go back to the hotel.”

A Partnership For Promotion Last but not least, the World Cup prioritizes promotion of the show, especially to a key demographic. “Phyllis pulled together a partnership with Cox Communications Las Vegas,” says Taryl O’Shea. “The day before the World Cup begins, Cox brings 300 grade school kids to the show. They get to pet the horses and learn about the breed. Cox’s Steve Schorr organizes the transportation for the children, and he purchases (for Cox) the handout materials the children receive. These include Walter Farley’s The Black Stallion book series. This is wonderful exposure to the Arabian breed that these kids will never forget.” “This show is unique,” says Scott Bailey, surveying what the World Cup has to offer. “It is truly a global event.” n

Lunchtime. “Determining Breeding Value In The Arabian Horse,” will feature Dr. John Shelle, head of Michigan State University’s Horse Research and Training Center. He collects data on MSU’s Arabian horse herd to establish breeding values based on conformational traits. Ten years ago, the university began adding data from the Kellogg Arabian Horse Center at Cal Poly, Pomona, and from Al-Marah Arabians in Tucson, Ariz. Saturday, April 21, 7:30 a.m. “Living

The Dream,” will be conducted by educator and lifelong Arabian horse devotee Cynthia Culbertson, who has traveled the world extensively, written numerous articles, and authored Legacy of Saudi Arabia, Spellbound Horses, and The Arabian Horse of Egypt. She replaces previously-scheduled speaker Judith Forbis.

Lunchtime. “Saving Foals—What Every Horse Owner Should Know” will be presented by Patrick McCue, D.V.M., Ph.D. A faculty member at Colorado State University, McCue coordinates Clinical Broodmare, Foaling and Embryo Transfer Services in the school’s Equine Reproductive Laboratory and has written extensively on veterinary matters.

As my personal priorities and long-term aspirations continue to change, so must my professional situation. Change can be a powerful thing, when it’s a significant enough change, such as this is for me, and it can elicit nearly every emotion available. This tempest of emotions is where I find myself right now as I leave the Arabian Horse Times after 13 years of service. During my tenure at Arabian Horse Times I have been fortunate, and have entered into many wonderful relationships with co-workers and clients alike. For this alone, I consider myself a wealthy man. I will remain active in the Arabian horse community through my involvement with various organizations and horse shows, and though I may not be in direct contact with many of you as frequently as I have in the past, I will always cherish our friendship and look forward to when our paths may cross again, hopefully in the near future. I thank everyone at Arabian Horse Times, both past and present, for the opportunity to be a part of something truly greater than the sum of its parts. The sense of pride we share by making a measurable difference in the Arabian horse community through service, volunteerism, innovation, and good old-fashioned hard work will stay with me forever as, I hope it does you. I am confident that contributions of time and talent from the Arabian Horse Times will remain profound into the future and continue to help support and shape the Arabian horse community. I wIsh you All the best.

The 2012 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show Story by Kara Larson

100 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes


in its 57th year at the premier and nationally known WestWorld in scottsdale, Ariz., the scottsdale Arabian Horse show held up its reputation as one

of the most prestigious Class ‘A’ horse shows in the country. Drawing in over 300 commercial exhibitors,

300,000 people, and over 2,100 horses for the 10-day

show, scottsdale once again proved to be a showcase of some of the finest horses and horsemen in the country.

executive director of the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona, Taryl o’shea, shares her delight in the success of the 2012 scottsdale show. “People thought

it was the best show we’ve ever had,” she states. “We

broke all records for attendance, and with new changes in the facility, vendors, and in other aspects of the show,

scottsdale had a different feel that ended up being very

well received. The show board did a great job thinking outside the box to make smart changes; they are really a wonderful board to work with, and the success of the show reflects their hard work.”

n order to effectively get the “feel” of the show, the upcoming pages serve as a chronicle of highlights the 2012 scottsdale show had to offer. From big wins, barn parties, heart-warming returns, and family activities, scottsdale showed once again that it truly only gets better with age. Whether you were participating in the show, watching classes as an avid Arabian horse enthusiast, or simply visiting the show as a member of the surrounding community, the scottsdale show was welcoming and offered a wide range of activities. And even though the journey to Arizona can be long, and sometimes problem-laden, it’s worth the trouble for a show like scottsdale.

“We start preparing for a show like Scottsdale far in advance,” shares trainer John Rannenberg of Rohara Arabians, Orange Lake, Fla. “The planning, packing, organizing, shoeing, vaccinating, and promotion—everything needs to be taken into account for such a long and stressful trip.”

“We start preparing for a show like scottsdale far in advance,” shares trainer John rannenberg of rohara Arabians, orange Lake, Fla. “The planning, packing, organizing, shoeing, vaccinating, and promotion—everything needs to be taken into account for such a long and stressful trip.” even after all of the preparation, rannenberg and the crew at rohara experienced a major mechanical issue just 20 miles away from their farm and were held up for seven hours. “However, breakdowns are bound to happen, and being able to step back and look at things like this, learn from the mistakes, and eventually get back on the road is what’s most important,” remarks rannenberg. “And we made it the rest of the way without an issue!” it would seem that the trip was worth it in the end as rohara took home eight champions and reserves and more than 20 top tens. As a trainer, rannenberg can’t pick just one win as the most special, but reflects on the success of the horses and riders as a whole. “each win really means a lot, because each horse’s journey is different,” says rannenberg. “Their own path leads up to their winning moment, and it’s rarely easy. There is so much time, effort, and money in every horse that competes. The sheer commitment to training, care, and the welfare of the horse is to ensure that they peak at the right moment. When it all comes together and there is a great bond and communication—regardless of discipline—it’s always incredibly rewarding.”

industry. They make the right choices for the exhibitors and work extra hard to make sure that everyone has an enjoyable time at the show.” moving back into the flow of the show, both saturday and sunday evening sessions were occupied by the scottsdale international halter classes. in terms of the international classes as a whole, Ted Carson of butler Farms Training Center is pleased with the direction and efforts put forth in this addition to the show. “scottsdale is really an excellent venue for both worlds to come together,” says Carson. “i believe that a stronger international influence will give a truer sense of what international showing is all about, and the positive thing is that the scottsdale group is willing to adjust for the best interests of the breed.”

Celebrity Slide Reining Classic Winner Keith Krichke.

For other members of the Arabian horse community, hauling problems are hardly an issue—especially when WestWorld is just 20 minutes down the road. beethe Arabians of Cave Creek, Ariz., faces different troubles when it comes to show season. “being in Arizona allows us to train all year long; so, we’ve had a few other small shows since U.s. nationals,” shares trainer shannon beethe. “However, scottsdale is definitely our biggest show yet this season. it really gets the year started for us, and with temperatures rising in the summer down here, it’s important to get an early start.” beethe Arabians took home 16 champions and reserves, several top tens, and had two high-point exhibitors. With a short travel distance, excellent success, and particularly nice weather this year, there isn’t much for shannon to complain about. “The scottsdale area is such a perfect place to have a horse show. To me, scottsdale is different in the best ways. The show committee is just so good—their press coverage, the radio stations that are at the show, and the huge number of spectators that make it every day—it’s all thanks to their hard work. They really know how to put on a show that is entertaining for all, unique, and really draws money and attention to our Arabian horse

monday night held a different kind of entertainment, the Celebrity slide reining Classic—the kind of class you can’t afford to miss at the scottsdale show. The first segment pairs six non-reining competitors with their own reining trainer for a few sessions of rigorous training. in the next part, just before the event, the teams are auctioned in a Calcutta with 65% of the auction total being awarded to the buyer of the winning team. Halter trainer Keith Krichke was paired with trainer russ brown and took the title this year over second-place finisher erin naas of Phoenix, Ariz. This year, the women shined in a class usually won by men in the past. in the purebred western pleasure open championship, the champion and reserve titles were taken home by Katie beck and Larae Fletcher-Powell. “it was awesome seeing Katie win reserve,” states Fletcher-Powell. “i remember thinking, ‘Finally one of us gets it!’” it was only moments later that FletcherPowell was graced with an even bigger title. riding 7-year-old mare sonoma Jazz, Fletcher-Powell was simply hoping for a clean ride. “This was the mare’s first time to hand-gallop, and the owner was worried that the young mare wouldn’t be able to handle the loud ring with all those people and the stress of the class itself. i thought i would have to baby her through it, but she ended up handling everything really well. still, i was totally blown away when i won!”


“Scottsdale”—a phenomenon that is much more than just a horse show— brings international Arabian breeders together to enjoy the love of the breed and each other’s company. Its camaraderie transcends language barriers and political and social preferences. One of the most successful breeders in the world, and a perennial leader at Scottsdale, is Haras Mayed, owned by Fernando and Joaquin de Santibanes of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fernando and Joaquin, well known as international breeders, share a special place in the history of Arabians in the United States; they have bred three Scottsdale Champion Mares: JJ Apharina (2006), JJ La Estrella (2008), and JJ La Baronesa (2012). All three were sired by Magnum Psyche. Leading sire Magnum, who stands at Midwest in Minnesota and Haras Mayed in Argentina, is a frequent flyer between the two continents, and JJ Apharina and JJ La Baronesa, are now an important part of the farm’s breeding program. Fernando and Joaquin de Santibanes continue to support the Arabian horse in worldwide breeding efforts, and are now collaborating with the celebrated Al Shaqab Stud in Qatar to explore the benefits of combining the bloodlines of Magnum Psyche with those of another of the world’s most acclaimed stallions, Marwan Al Shaqab.

On any given day, families can take part in barn tours, have the opportunity to meet an Arabian horse, paint a ceramic horse, attend a helpful seminar from horse experts, decorate a stick horse, and so much more.

106 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes


even with amazing stories of wins, losses, and everything in between, we all know that scottsdale is so much more than just the classes. by simply taking a look at the incredible list of events happening every day at the show, you get the sense that scottsdale has so much more to offer than the typical horse show. on any given day, families can take part in barn tours, have the opportunity to meet an Arabian horse, paint a ceramic horse, attend a helpful seminar from horse experts, decorate a stick horse, and so much more. “For a lot of people, scottsdale has become the kick-off show of the season,” says Taryl o’shea. “There are always a lot of quality horses, and with over 730 classes, people can come see a little bit of everything. And this is what we’re trying to do—get people involved. Through hands-on events like sitting on a purebred native costume horse, behind-the-scenes barn tours, and painting ceramic ponies to take home, families can come out and be entertained day after day. We offer these activities to help protect the longevity of the Arabian horse and the future of the industry.” Part of these “extra” activities is a cause known as the Pairing Animals with students (P.A.W.s.) program. since 2010, program leader and Language Arts teacher Kimberly Frankel has taken her group of students to the scottsdale show. “i started the program because i have always had a love and passion for animals, and i saw that same love for animals in many of my students,” says Frankel. “because of this, i wanted to create a well-rounded program that would educate students on every aspect of the subject.” This year, the minnesota Arabian Horse breeders, inc. sponsored a bus for the students to make their way out to WestWorld. “in the P.A.W.s. program, students learn all about animal care, including: proper nutrition, grooming, basic health care, knowledge of specific breeds, training tips, future college options, career opportunities in the animal industry, as well as several hands-on activities working with animals.”

Another unique aspect that takes place outside the scottsdale show ring is the number of barn parties, open houses, and various presentations that take place throughout the week. midwest’s party to celebrate the arrival of Luciana Fasano, stachowski’s open house, and the parties held by stonewall Farms, rae-Dawn Arabians, Gemini Acres equine, and others were markers of celebration for their clients and outside members of the Arabian community. in terms of breeding opportunities, the scottsdale signature stallion Auction was held on Wednesday night and was comprised of 165 promising and well-known stallions. From halter to english, the winning bidders took part in something great for the future of the Arabian horse. one of the final stallion presentations was on the last saturday evening with the sire of great significance and breeding prowess—echo magnifficoo. The closing evening of the show was exciting, dynamic, and above all, inspiring. it was on this day that the Arabian Professional and Amateur Horseman’s Association held their prestigious Horseman’s Awards, which served as a final ode of gratitude and admiration for the best of the best in the Arabian horse industry. scottsdale is truly a show for all. Whether you’re looking for a place to bring the family for a fun afternoon, watch some of the finest Arabian horses in the country, meet new people, or actually participate in the show, scottsdale has no boundaries. “scottsdale has so much history, and over the years, it has evolved in many dimensions,” shares John rannenberg. “The show has everything—international people, families, an accommodating venue, and a fun town with great restaurants. everyone is there to promote the breed—it’s really a positive upswing for the industry. it encourages people to feel there is a light ahead, and it shows in the level of competition in the show. everyone really does their best, brings their best, and whether a barn brings two horses or 50, it’s become a showcase for the best in the country at so many different levels.”

The Revival Of Something Great

one of the most talked-about horses of the show was 5-year-old purebred english horse HA Toskcan sun, unanimous winner of the Arabian english pleasure junior horse with Jimmy stachowski on board. This was an incredible win for the young horse and dedicated owner michelle Harris—not just in terms of the title and prestige of a scottsdale champion, but for a cause that traces back many years. For michelle, the journey to that winning moment was laced with adversity, but ultimately, worth every moment and dollar spent. it was michelle’s late aunt who had a great love for the Arabian horse, and today, michelle is doing all she can to restore her aunt’s hopes and dreams for breeding talented and special Arabian horses. “my aunt, who was very involved in the breeding aspect of the Arabian horse industry, passed away in her 40s, and i was simply too young to realize what she had going. Her breeding programs were sold off, and now, years later, we’re hunting for those breeding programs she had once loved so much.”

”Scottsdale is our favorite show of the year. Everything is great—the sunshine, the quality of horses, the presence of the international community, and the camaraderie of the people there to simply enjoy the Arabian horse.”

it is from these programs that HA Toskcan sun was born, making his mere existence a reminder of a great breeding program of the past. However, it is the young horse’s success that stands as an indication of the incredible potential of these recovered breeding lines. michelle contributes a great deal of this journey to trainer Jim stachowski, who has been with her since the beginning. “i can’t say enough nice things about Jimmy. The first time we met was actually in scottsdale years ago when i told him i was interested in reviving my Aunt’s breeding program. Amazingly enough, Jimmy happened to know the mare i was looking for. At the time, Jimmy simply said, ‘Hop in the golf cart, i know this mare.’ it was truly meant to be!” Five years later, as Toskcan trotted into the arena with an air of freshness, ease, and with ears glued forward, michelle’s vision of paying tribute to her aunt was realized. “To see the horse that i bred, delivered, and own come into the arena made me just light up. All the time we put in finding my aunt’s breeding programs, and the years of preparation for Toskcan made that first class such a special and emotional moment for us. Toskcan’s first

time showing was so much more than we ever could’ve hoped for and seeing how beautiful he was in the show ring made everything worth it.” For michelle, scottsdale itself has always held a special place in her heart. “in my teens, my aunt always talked about how great scottsdale was. The first time i was able to go, i thought it was like Hollywood—i was amazed by the show. And today, the show is still a one-of-a-kind and special experience. scottsdale is our favorite show of the year. everything is great—the sunshine, the quality of horses, the presence of the international community, and the camaraderie of the people there to simply enjoy the Arabian horse.” in terms of the young stallion’s temperament, the community involvement at the scottsdale show seems to be a perfect fit. not every stallion would be up for unfamiliar visitors after winning a scottsdale championship, but michelle trusted that Toskcan’s personality would be just as endearing outside the show ring. “After Toskcan’s win, two little boys wearing soccer uniforms came up to me and shared that they had never touched a horse before. i invited them back to the stalls, opened up Toskcan’s stall, and he was happy to let the boys pet him and feed him carrots. They were absolutely thrilled about it! it was really a special thing to see. That’s something that scottsdale has that is hard to come by today. The advertising of the show attracts so many new people, and in turn, they get to see how incredible the Arabian horse is.”

A Miracle In More Ways Than One

in the eyes of John o’Hara, TA mozart’s story of overcoming all odds to get where he is today is miraculous in every sense of the word. “After returning from U.s. nationals on october 30 from a big win for TA mozart, we tucked all the show horses in and said goodnight. The next day, mozart was led to a turnout and only 15 minutes later, our worker was pointing and yelling so fast that i couldn’t understand what was being said. Then i looked down at mozart’s leg. His white stocking was red with blood, and i knew it was serious. our farrier was there and immediately instructed us to get him to the vet hospital as quickly as possible. When we arrived, the condition was very serious, but they were unable to determine the damage until the bleeding stopped, because he had cut a main artery. However, the news only got worse. The next day the vet called and said it was worse than what he thought. it ended up that around 30 percent of mozart’s foot had been cut off from above the coronary band down, exposing the coffin bone and sensitive cartilage. mozart would have to be put in a cast for a minimum of 6 weeks to support the foot and keep the main structure from shifting. He would be restricted to a stall to prevent as little movement as possible, and the next fear was of infection setting.” As a man with scottsdale on the mind, o’Hara couldn’t help but ask about the possibility of mozart being able to make it to the show. “We told the vet we had a very important show in February, and we simply asked him if there were any hopes of us making it there with mozart’s injury. The vet shared with us that since the hoof takes six months to a year to grow, it was very unlikely that mozart could grow enough to support that part of the foot. He insisted that unless there was some sort of miracle, it would be best for us not to count on the possibility of scottsdale.” o’Hara wasn’t about to go down without a fight for mozart and his bum foot. After considering the best options for the horse, o’Hara decided on something that would change the course of mozart’s recovery drastically. “We are big believers and users of Arenus

114 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

steadfast®, so i contacted Dr. Jay Altman of Arenus to explain what we were dealing with. Dr. Altman assured me he had the perfect program to reduce healing time for mozart.” Under the aid of Dr. Altman, mozart had a personalized plan of supplements, constant care, and several weeks of stall rest. “Finally, on January 16th the vet released mozart to go back to work. Less than a month later, mozart left for scottsdale. Here, he competed and won the scottsdale Arabian reining Futurity Classic winning $16,000 for the second year in a row. After mozart won i thought to myself, ‘This is a miracle in more ways than one.’ it’s a miracle he is alive, it’s a miracle infection never set in, and it’s truly a miracle mozart never took a lame step after removing the cast.’”


“Finally, on January 16th the vet released Mozart to go back to work. Less than a month later, Mozart left for Scottsdale. Here, he competed and won the Scottsdale Arabian Reining Futurity Classic winning $16,000 for the second year in a row.

The Perspective Of An Amateur Rider And Scottsdale Enthusiast

and on the cutting edge. next year, i plan on going just to see what is new and different and also to see whether the non-Arabian spectator attendance trend will continue to rise.

“in my opinion, the horses this year were probably the best i’ve seen yet. every class i watched was not only good-sized, but also very competitive. Personally, the most exciting class for me was probably the Half-Arabian english open—the quality was undeniable. i believe it was the first time sparkafire, Papa rhazi and Lady Ava have ever been in the same class, and it was a complete toss-up for me the whole time. From classes like this, it really seems like scottsdale has become a showcase for who to watch for at the U.s. nationals.

“i would have to say my favorite moment of the show was on Friday night of the final weekend. We arrived at WestWorld 30 minutes before the evening session started and were warned at the ticket gates that it might be hard to find a seat. We shrugged off their warning thinking, ‘Yeah, whatever, it’s a horse show; there’s bound to be some seats available!’ However, we were definitely proven wrong. We got in there, and it was literally standing room only. i absolutely could not believe the amazing crowd of spectators! We finally found some decent seats, and it was crazy, but so worth the trouble. my favorite class of the night was HalfArabian Park ATr, which was pretty impressive. However, it was the atmosphere of the arena that made it truly electrifying. The palpable and stirring energy in the filled-to-the-brim equidome actually made me tear up a little bit. it also made me wish i had a park horse to show!

“Aside from the quality of horses at scottsdale, i’ve become increasingly impressed with the vendors that show up. From all things equine and everything in between, scottsdale definitely has you covered. on a similar note, i am also impressed with all the improvements that i see. The scottsdale show does a great job promoting the show and also keeping it fresh

“The incredible scottsdale energy wasn’t limited to the arena—there was also a lot of excitement outside of the horse show as well. it was great to see and hear about all of the different barn tours and presentations. it’s these presentations, along with the incredible classes and everything else scottsdale has to offer that make it such a unique and exciting show for all involved.”

in the eyes of south Dakota native amateur rider Christian svennes, scottsdale had much to offer an eager spectator like himself. “scottsdale is a horse show favorite of mine,” states svennes. “it’s the horses, the food, the entertainment, the break from freezing northern weather—just that distinctive ‘scottsdale buzz’ that keeps me coming back year after year.

2011 APAHA Horseman’s Awards

O

n the final Sunday of the 2012

Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, the Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains held the Arabian Professional & Amateur Horseman’s Association (APAHA) Horseman’s Awards. With an overwhelming attendance, a new APAHA Hall Of Fame ceremony, and an overall air of prestige and appreciation, the Horseman’s Awards certainly did not disappoint. “This year we had the highest attendance ever,” says event host and Texas trainer Josh Quintus. “Having it on the last night of Scottsdale allowed for a lot of people to attend. Whether they were there for the whole week or just for the weekend, it suited everyone. They also made some good changes this year. They moved the whole thing back an hour, combined a few awards, and made it a shorter ceremony altogether.” Quintus also jokes that the high attendance was probably because of his stellar hosting abilities. “I’d like to say more people came because I was hosting, but then again, I can’t be sure,” quips Quintus. “I really did enjoy it. I got to share some funny stories about a few trainers and friends, which is always a fun thing for me.”

Trainer and Distinguished Service

Award winner Mary Trowbridge agrees that this year’s Horseman’s Awards was an exceptional event. “I thought that this year was one of the best Horseman’s Awards we’ve ever had because of a great compilation of efforts,” states Trowbridge. “Everyone put their shoulder to the grindstone, especially Holli Gallún. She worked very hard to make sure everyone was happy and kept the evening running smoothly.”

“The Horseman’s Awards are awarded to the most talented and deserving horsemen in our community, and it’s really a special event for the industry,” continues Trowbridge. “I think we sometimes take these awards slightly for granted or simply become immune to what they really mean. A Horseman’s Award identifies what it takes to be a true horseman—integrity, talent, and success. Integrity is the most important of these, mainly because our Arabians are such an honest breed, and as an honest community of horse people, we reflect our horses well.”

2011 APAHA Horseman’s Awards

Beyond awards and appreciation, there is one other aspect that makes the APAHA awards a different and unique affair—the attire for the occasion. “This ceremony is one of the few times that we get together wearing something other than blue jeans,” says Quintus. “Halter trainers wear suits all the time, but I rarely do. So, it’s a nice change. Plus, everyone gets dressed up for a good reason—to appreciate those who work so hard in the business.”

of the Horseman’s Awards. This year, being inducted into the Hall Of Fame at the same time as Stanley and Kitty White were presented with their Lifetime Achievement Award was really an unearthly moment for me. Being up there with them and others who have done so much for the Arabian horse made me realize once again that we are living the dream! As tough as it is to be a trainer sometimes, the upside of the industry is being a part of nights like these.”

Another addition to this year’s

Horseman’s Awards was the APAHA Hall Of Fame. Twenty-seven well-known and influential members of the Arabian community were inducted this year. One of these inductees was Mary Trowbridge. “The Hall Of Fame is an exciting thing,” shares Trowbridge. “It acknowledges the successful horsemen who have won a particular award multiple times, and it provides for other talented people in the industry to show that they work hard and deserve to be recognized too. There is a whole new generation of horsemen that really deserve an opportunity to be recognized, and this is giving them a chance. I’ve been fortunate to be nominated every year since the inception

Leaders Of The Times: March Calendar Feature

Star Ghazal by Christa Beeler

Star Ghazal (Gazal Al Shaqab x C Starlite Bey). 178 | A r A Bi A n Hor Se T i meS


Star Ghazal

The ancient Greeks and Romans

knew that aging wine could enhance its taste, but centuries of experience have revealed that there are only a few varieties capable of significantly improving over time. Today, modern winemasters estimate that just the top one percent of all wine has the ability to improve after more than a decade. If Star Ghazal were a fine wine, those who know him say, he would be in that top one percent. “At the tender age of 14, Star Ghazal is undoubtedly one of the premier Gazal Al Shaqab sons in the world,” says Jeff Schall of Shada Inc., where Star Ghazal stands for breeding and marketing. “He physically looks incredible at this time in his life. What we are witnessing with Star Ghazal is that he absolutely seems to get more stunning with every six months of age.” Star Ghazal (Gazal Al Shaqab x C Starlite Bey) came to Shada via Silver Lake Arabians in Wichita, Kan. Owners Tarrance and Jacqueline Floyd and their children, Justine and Tarrance II, say they fell in love with the stallion at first sight. “There was something about him,” recalls Tarrance Floyd. “He was so charismatic, almost regal, along with being very correct. I went home and researched his background, and I discovered the likes of Arabian royalty in his bloodlines.” Star Ghazal’s sire, Gazal Al Shaqab (Anaza El Farid x Kajora, by Kaborr), represents a thoughtful blend of Egyptian, Polish, Russian and American bloodlines. The son of U.S. National Champion Mare Kajora, he is a World Champion, Middle East Champion, and the 2005 U.S. National Reserve Champion Senior Stallion. Star Ghazal’s dam, C Starlite Bey, is the daughter of Ray Dor Echo, the 1986 U.S. National Champion Futurity Colt. Starlite’s bloodlines offer Aladdinn Echo through her sire and Bey Shah through her dam, qualifying Ghazal as a breeder’s dream. Added to his blue chip pedigree, the stallion’s own conformation and type yielded an impressive show record. His first championship came in July 1999, as Region 16 Champion Arabian Yearling Colt; three months later, in Albuquerque, he was selected U.S. National Top Ten Yearling Colt in an notable class of 48 contenders. He added another U.S. National Top Ten in the futurity colt division in 2001, and continued to collect regional championships as

he grew up. Finally, in 2004, he entered the national arena once again, and on that occasion, he was crowned Canadian National Champion Senior Stallion. A return to the show ring in 2012 has everyone in Star Ghazal’s camp fired up, and it is starting off with a bang. “We just received word that he is up for his Legion of Honor,” says Floyd. “It’s an exciting way to start his path back to the show ring. We’re really looking forward to seeing him make his comeback.” Schall adds, “He looks amazing, like he could enter the arena tomorrow and win yet another national championship. We remain ecstatic about the opportunity to return to the show ring and dazzle the crowds and judges.” Beyond the ring, Floyd plans to breed the stallion to his group of mares, which include daughters of Ames Charisma, Falcon BHF, Fausto CRH, LD Pistal, Odyssey SC, and Da Vinci FM. Both Schall and Floyd agree that it will be exciting to see the foals born, raised, and entered in the show ring. “The charisma of their sire will be passed on to them,” they say, “and they will be a force to be reckoned with.” “His percentage of offspring that are regional champion to national champion is outstanding,” says Schall. “We are honored to have Star Ghazal be a part of our lives at Shada. The Floyd family’s positive energy is reflected in all they do and touch. It is in this light that Star Ghazal shines brighter than ever before!” n Volume 42, No. 10 | 179

We are very happy to have this opportunity to give a brief version of our well known magazine TuttoArabi to the Arabian Horse Times readers. In the following pages you will see how Tutto Arabi became more global in the Arabian Horse community. Ofcourse when we started with our company Alim Editrice we were just captured by the beauty of the Arabian horses. We never expected to be so deeply involved in the Arabian horse market as we are today. We are not only editors but we are also breeders, we are organizing shows, events and we are trying to do our best every day to give the best visionability to the

most prestigeous breed of all. Our mentality in the past years helped us a lot. We are a group of people that believe that exchanging every day opinions and sharing the passion, the joy and the enthusiasm, can make our job even better. For this reason we were every time ready for new ideas and for new cooperations. The idea of a collaboration with Arabian Horse Times arrived on the end of 2011 and we were immediately enthousiastic, because we think that giving a space to show the hard job that these two much important magazines of today are doing to the respective readers of both magazines can

let dissapear the distance on the world. This is the real secret of the Arabian horses. Where everybody tries to reach his own goal and all the breeders in every part of the world try to bred the best foal. I hope you will enjoy this ďŹ rst edition and I hope to see you again soon.

Simone Leo

TuttoArabi and Desert Heritage Magazines have become synonymous with images of extraordinary Arabian horses displayed within seemingly endless, beautifully designed pages. TuttoArabi and Desert Heritage are published by Alim Editrice s.n.c. of Milan, Italy; a company that has been operating for over a decade. TuttoArabi approaches the purebred Arabian horse industry as a whole, incorporating events organized worldwide. The magazine publishes interviews with judges, breeders, and handlers, as well as news

from ECAHO and the Pyramid Society. Additionally, the magazine includes veterinary articles, special farm features, articles about the versatility of Arabian horses, and also covers endurance and racing competitions. TuttoArabi is very active in various web marketing tools including the most important one, its newsletter. Desert Heritage is a publication concentrating on valuable and specific bloodlines of the Arabian horse, specifically the straight Egyptian, and is published primarily in English.

In the words of TuttoArabi Publisher Simone Leo, “we are simply people who share a common interest and who need a friendly and human connection. This is what we can offer in this particular moment of our lives because we are bound together by one common joy, the joy for this magnificent creature: the Arabian Horse.” TuttoArabi produces nine issues yearly including six bimonthly issues, and three special editions specifically for distribution at the All Nation’s Cup in Aachen, Germany, the European Championships, and

at the Salon du Cheval in Paris, France. The show coverage is an eagerly anticipated highlight of both Alim Editrice magazines. In a recent issue of TuttoArabi, Simone Leo summarized the season’s most important shows. In doing so, it was his goal to “convey the same excitement, the same adrenaline and the same enthusiasm and serenity that [he has] personally ‘lived and experienced’ at every show, each of which was different, with

[its] own characteristics and capable of capturing emotions and fascinating us all in its own unique way.” Simone Leo holds in high regard the talented and professional individuals who work alongside him, and is also quick to credit the importance of their dedicated established clients, as well as new advertisers. Alim Editrice’s philosophy emphasizes that through hard work and close collaboration, the Arabian industry as a whole; the publications,

the breeders, and the owners, can strive to succeed together. The high energy level, and the commitment and quality demonstrated by these publications are truly a driving force for the entire industry. TuttoArabi, with its strong international commitment, has developed into a most popular magazine. Today they are a ‘point of reference on the global market,’ which confirms their outstanding quality. by Laurie Schmelzle

E

very few years, there is one special colt to be born somewhere around the globe. 2005 brought one at Rohara Arabians, bred by Vicky and Louis Doyle. His name was QR Marc, ready to put his Mark on the Arabian Horse breeding. Already at a young age, QR Marc catched the eye of many Arabian Horse enthusiasts around the world. Everyone started to speak about that special one. Many people came to see this little wonder in real live. Of course when there is such a special colt, people arrive from far to buy him and the trainers want to guide him to the many successes that lay ahead of him. But the price to be paid was high and increased with every day going by as by that age, his beauty was already known by everyone around. Tipped by Christine Jamar, it was his current owner Paul Gheysens who had the courage and the vision to buy him. At that time, Paul Gheysens was just starting in the Arabian Horse World and buying such a young super star like QR Marc, made him rise to the highest level. Mr. Gheysens is a successful business man who has the habit to overcome all challenges that arrive at his path. For this reason, from the first moment, the project was ambitious. Maintaining its great reputation and answering the calls of many breeders, QR Marc was sent to Europe. Of course he was awaited by many admirers, who only saw the pictures and came to see this ‘most talked about youngster’ with their own eyes. Rawhides Amenda Kouros

ESPRESSIVO E ES S PR PRES ESSI ES SIVO SI VO

They were ere not to be disappointed. rc fulfilled all promises and more. QR Marc Alreadyy before his arrival to Europe, many MARC’S MA M AR RC C ’S ’ S SSTAR TA R K.A. TA TAR gs were sold and when he made his breedings arrival, in the first 3 years of breeding he was ablee to sell five hundred breedings, despite his high breeding fee, more followed. And this even before setting any foot into the showring! Which made another contribution to his already legendary status. Mr. Paul Gheysens had the vision to build a successful breedingprogram around his superstar, buying high quality mares from all over the world, starting in Poland, where QR Marc entered the breedingprogram of the famous Polish state stud between the end of 2008 and beginning of 2009. After just a few years of his breeding career, we can already see that QR Marc is fulfilling his promise, by putting a mark on the new generation of Arabian horse breeding. The list is never ending, but the ones that stayed in our memory the best were Zigi Zana - Polish National champion filly European reserve champion filly - all in 2010 and 2011. Piacenza - many times champion , the beautiful Pogrom, Palatina - champion at Bialka show, Wieza Mocy, European bronze champion filly - actually the whole lineup of junior champion fillies during the European championships in 2011 were sired by QR Marc with Marcs Star KA, bred and owned by Mr. Paul Gheysens, being the champion. We remember the exciting Espressivo - bred and owned by Paul Gheysens, who also in 2011 and 2012 continued to win many important titles like recently winning the bronze medal at the Al Khalediah show in Saudi Arabia. For this reason, Mr. Paul Gheysens, during these years, refused all offers arrived to him from all over the world. There is simply no price for QR Marc, as the owner and his family are totally in love with him. We can imagine what QR Marc can give to Mr. Gheysens when he can visit the farm in his spare time, in all its quietness and see this unique horse show himself in all his beauty. The beauty of QR Marc however, did not entirely come by chance. He is very well bred, being sired by the three times world champion Marwan al Shaqab and coming out of the Kouvay Bay daughter Swete Dreams. Passing on type, movement and show attitude! His pedigree is a combination of the most renowned sires of 20th century as Nazeer, Morafic, Shaikh Al Badi, Ruminaja Ali, Anaza El Farid, Gazal Al Shaqab and of course Marwan. These and much more make QR Marc more than just another beautiful horse. All the characteristics of the Arabian horse are written all over this individual. His extremely beautifully shaped head with his big dark eyes, his long and well EMANOS shaped neck, his strong shoulder, balanced body, long legs and outstanding movement. Of course such a stallion like QR Marc needs to be in the best condition and to be brought to the most prestigious shows. Also here he continued to fulfill all prophecies, being name Champion in Al Khalediah show 2008 World Reserve Champion colt twice and Silver Senior World champion in 2011. Starting from December of last year he is under the care of Paolo Capecci - the very expert and professional handler - and the management of Giampaolo Gubbiotti that is taking care about all the details. Paolo and Woody built the success of many stallions in the past years and finally they have the opportunity to work directly with Mr. Paul Gheysens and his team. The strong work and the deeply connection built in the past years by Woody and Paolo have permitted a cooperation between Knocke Arabians and Dubai Stud for going to the Middle East show together under the same team. Mohammed Tawidi and Abdelaziz Al Marazek were in love of QR Marc from the first moment they met him. Of course the Dubai team liked a lot the vision of the owner of QR Marc Paul Gheysens. We just can appreciate the job done by Paolo and Woody to build such a good team!. For this year just Dubai Stud the breeding state stud in Poland and a few lucky breeders will have the opportunity to use QR Marc for just a selected number of mares!

The cooperation done with Dubai stud to let QR Marc being shown in the middle eastern shows. The debut of the team was in Abu Dhabi this year where QR Marc started off with winning his first show of the year, at the International Abu Dhabi show, scoring the highest points of the show and claiming his champion title unanimously. Pleasing the crowd and everybody involved with scoring straight 20’s on type and for the first time, he also took the well deserved 20’s and 19.5’s for movement. Building up the impressive total score of 94 points! Especially the feeling of QR Marc with Paolo was incredible. QR Marc gave to Paolo his best! He was very concentrated during the category and the championship, moving all naturally with Paolo who was very nice with him, giving him the freedom and the confidence which is one of the most important things for a horse with such charisma. With a lot of expectation, trust and a wining results, QR Marc is ready for the next challenge in Dubai. We are sure we will see him at his best condition and with the same happiness to be shown as we saw in Abu Dhabi, where he was amazing. We can’t wait to see him in Dubai, again to be presented by Paolo Capecci.

Mohamed Al Subaie (right) and trainer Ryan Jones celebrating Championship success with Reflection LA at the 2010 British Nationals.

Layout by Claire Moore www.arabianhorsepromo.com

T

he scene: the UK’s Arab Horse Society National Show – the British National Championships at the Three Counties Showground,Malvern,Worcestershire in July 2010 … Friday early evening … walking round the showground I bumped into Sue Jones of the Bychan Stud, we walked round together – Sue told me she was rather nervous – although they had shown many horses at this level tomorrow would see the M Mohamed Al Subaie, a Major Mr Bychan Stud’s General of the Saudi Arabian army G e first entry in the whose heart she had so captured w h weaned foal class. in her purchase just prior to rresulting es My ears pricked up, hher er class win! This was to be a most mental note – this must debut British National ssuccessful uc be something a little bit SShow h for his Al Muawd Stud for special! The next day llater ate that afternoon his yearling colts the scene was set, enter a Reflection LA (AV Montoya/Alishya R e bay filly foal – I can only BE) B E and Dream Design (Master describe this moment as Design GA/Psyannah) stood Gold D e pure magic – one that aand n Bronze Champions in the Junior could be likened to that Male M a Championship. Al Muawd of my first sighting of El SStud tu had arrived in spectacular style! Shaklan and we all know continued in 2010 and SSuccess u what a phenomenal 2011 – in the UK, in tthroughout hr Arabian he turned out to Stivalery BJ captured many hearts as a foal when she was crowned British National Champion. and the Middle East. To date EEurope u be! I have been an official the stud’s proudest moment has been photographer at the AHS show since the late 70’s but Stivalery BJ’s entrance was so awesome that seeing the glorious mare Alia EA (Khidar/Arabeska), bred in Spain, I actually failed to press the shutter immediately! This foal trotted in crowned European champion in 2011. So much has been achieved in like she completely owned the place and had been doing this for years such a short time and now the Al Muawd Stud is to cross the Atlantic – yet this was her very first show ring experience! She was actually like to be represented at the Las Vegas World Cup show by the two Stival one of those exquisite bronze statues come to life! Naturally she won fillies, Stivalery BJ ex V Exotic Enchantress and GP Parys Hilton ex the class and followed up with the British National Champion title.

developed a particularly strong rapport with Stivalery. Rhodri and his wife Kimberley own the much celebrated sire and show horse, Master Design GA (by Versace) who is the sire of Al Muawd’s colts Dream Design and Masters Image. So what is the background, the present and the future for this relative new-comer to the Arabian? Al Muawd is named after Mr Al Subaie’s family studs – his father

and grandfather bred Arabian horses – and today his whole family are very supportive with his mother, four brothers, two sisters and all their sons and daughters all loving Arabian horses! The stud was started in 2008 with the purchase of some Arabians at an auction in Saudi Arabia but the first show horse purchased was Revolution who is rather aptly named for he was to change the focus and lead the stud successfully into the competitive world of showing. This was the start

of the involvement of his breeders, Ryan Jones (elder son of Sue and Emrys) and his partner Sally Roberts with the development of Al Muawd. Ryan was showing for the King of Saudi Arabia at the prestigeous Al Khalediah show, when he was approached by Mr Al Subaie about finding him a show horse. Revolution, known as The King, remains Mr Al Subaie’s favourite Arabian being, in his words “like a first love to me”! This striking chestnut son of Padrons Psyche was bred in the UK out of the Versace mare Queen Victoria GA thus combining the bloodlines of two of Mr Al Subaie’s ideal Arabian stallions. Ryan now spends about half his year in Saudi, generally advising on the development of the stud and breeding decisions, buying stock and showing some of the horses whilst Sally does all the administration for the horses in the UK with regard to imports and exports, foal registrations, show entries, sponsorship and advertising. The stud is located in Oyeynah, a small village near Saudi Arabia’s capital city, Riyadh.The building of the facility there commenced in 2009 with a barn and swimming pool. In 2010 a veterinary clinic was added with a new show barn constructed a year later. A further barn is being built at the moment. Loddon stabling was imported from 98 | TUTTO ARABI - ww.tuttoarabi.com


the UK and all the stables have air conditioning and automatic water drinkers. Other equipment has been imported from the UK such a horse walker and stocks and there is also AI and embryo transfer equipment from Germany. The facility has everything required to ensure the highest standards of care for the horses. Vet Liz Hughes

from England runs the cclinic lin during the winter months returning ttoo her Wirral based practice for the spring and an summer. The stud can freeze semen and use imported semen from stallions all over the world. This year there are about 25 foals due by Trussardi, Stival and Psytadel and their own stallions Revolution and MPA Giuliani (MPA Giovanni/Rohara Whispers by Padrons Psyche). The first foals for 2012 have been born and all will be eagerly anticipated as this is probably the aspect of running the stud that Mr Al Subaie most enjoys as he loves the mares and seeing what they produce – the products of the stud’s breeding choices. Revolution’s first foal will be born in the UK in April out of the American mare Falcon Song BHF. Four other mares are in the UK at Sally’s Mirage Stud in North Wales including Psyx Aprilove H (Padrons Psyche/Bey Shahna KA) who was a winner at the Las Vegas World Cup show in 2009 prior to being purchased and imported in foal to Trussardi. Mr Al Subaie readily acknowledges the

value of the advice from experts who have accumulated experiences over years of breeding Arabians. Besides Sally and Ryan this includes his father Emrys, a respected ECAHO judge, whose Bychan Stud, situated in West Wales has enjoyed decades of breeding successfully in the UK. Al Muawd has expanded rapidly and has already enjoyed considerable successes at top level which must be considered as quite remarkable achievements for such a fledgling stud. At the moment the show string is competing in the Middle East but very soon the two Stival fillies will fly to the USA whilst the rest of the 2012 team will come to the UK from where they will attend shows in the UK and Europe. Mr Al Subaie has an aim and has set the challenge of competing successfully with the best Arabian Studs in the world, such as Ajman, Al Khalediah and Athbah with the ultimate goal being to breed Al Muawd’s own superstar! With the quality of the Arabians he has assembled this achievement may be in the near, rather than distant future! ww.tuttoarabi.com - TUTTO ARABI | 99

What is your favorite horse show, and why? my favorite horse show would have to be region 9. i love the facility and the city of Fort Worth. i’ve been showing there since i was 8, and it’s always a fun show.

What is your most treasured horse show memory? my most treasured horse show memory was when i showed Catalyst in the Half-Arabian Park class at Youth nationals in 2005. i was given the amazing opportunity to show him, and it was an incredible journey. i had never shown him until that night; i had no idea what to expect. He gave me the ride of my life, and i’ll never forget it.

What is the most memorable show-ring advice you have ever received? The most memorable show-ring advice i have been given is to remember to have fun. i started riding and showing because i loved horses and it was fun. i think it’s important to keep that in mind when showing.

Most embarrassing moment at a horse show? When i was showing at the Canadian nationals, i dropped my curb rein at the trot. instead of stopping to pick it up, i just kept trying to grab it. needless to say, my horse was very confused. There was also another moment at Canadian nationals when i reversed at the trot. i accidentally reversed twice and still ended up going the same direction.

If there was a news article about your life, what would the headline be? “Work in Progress.” it seems like there is always something to be done in my life!

300 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

Who is your all time favorite show horse, and why? my all-time favorite show horse is Alada Attitude bF. she was the first horse that we bred that i was able to show. most days when i ride her at home, she’s still as excited as she is when she shows. she has been my favorite horse of all time, and it has been a very special experience to watch her grow up.


ScottSdale—a Sunlit Spectacular

How did you become involved with the Arabian horse breed? When I was little, all I wanted to do was ride a horse. So, after begging my mom, she finally found a place for riding lessons. It just happened to be an arabian barn.

What are your favorite classes to watch and why? The English Futurity class at u.S. nationals. It is so much fun to see a horse show for the first time. It’s always a really exciting class and a thrill to see the future stars of our industry.

What is your dream vacation? My dream vacation is a very relaxing one. It doesn’t need to be anything fancy; I love going to alys Beach with my family and friends.

Who is the most influential person to you in the Arabian horse community and why? Mary Trowbridge. I think all the work that she has done for the Horsemen’s Distress Fund is very inspirational. She is an extremely talented horse trainer; yet, she makes time to give back to the industry in so many ways.

This year I am showing ... I’m not completely sure yet but I’m working on figuring it out. Hopefully, I’ll be showing some fun new horses.

If you could show one horse from the past or present who would it be and why? apollopalooza. He was such an amazing show horse. I loved watching him, and I’m sure he was a thrill to show.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you? I love to cook! The Pioneer Woman’s blog is my favorite place to get easy and delicious recipes.

If you could have one superpower what would it be? I would love to be able to transport myself to other places. I hate to fly, so anything that could help me avoid that would be amazing.

Are you a collector of anything? If so what?

A Leg Up

Fetal Programming—The Importance Of Nutrition In Pregnancy by Heather Smith Thomas The future of a developing embryo/fetus depends upon the health and nutrition of the dam. This formative time for the foal can be adversely influenced by the uterine environment if the mare is exposed to certain diseases, toxins, or a poor diet. What a pregnant mare eats during gestation—the quantity and quality of various nutrients—can have a long-lasting effect on her foal. Nutrients in early gestation are more important than we once thought. Most of the important organs and body systems of the foal are being formed during that time. Metabolism, muscle mass, skeletal structure and other important factors that become permanent traits for the foal are also inf luenced by what the mare eats. Studies have shown that nutritional management of pregnant mares can also affect the development of the body systems controlling glucose and insulin dynamics in the foal. Most of the individual traits/characteristics of a foal, lamb, calf or human baby are pre-determined by genetics (genotype, or inherited traits). But the ultimate expression of those genetics can be altered by environmental influences, especially early on, as the embryo/fetus develops. This can result in different phenotypes (appearance, etc.) even in closely related individuals. An example would be identical twin equine embryos placed in two very different recipient mares, such as a pony and a draft mare. Not only will those foals be a different size at birth, but some of their differences will be evident for the rest of their lives. Similarly, foals born from dams that are on very different types of diet or nutrient levels will be different. The uterine environment, which includes nutritional factors, plays an important role in what we now term “fetal programming.” Tania Cubitt, Ph.D., an equine nutritionist based in Middleburg, Va., and a staff member of Performance Horse Nutrition in Weiser, Idaho, says many horse owners ask her about growth problems in foals. “In order to address their concerns, I ask them about the maternal nutrition, what the dam was eating,” she says. “Once the foal is born, there’s not a lot you can do to change things. There are a few 302 | A R A BI A N HOR Se T I MeS

nutritional strategies you can try, but basically you are stuck with what you already have.” The time to build the foundation for what that foal will be is during gestation when the embryo/fetus is developing. Damage may have already been done that might result in development problems like DOD (developmental orthopedic disease), or metabolic disease and insulin resistance, for example. “Raising a foal is like building and painting a fence,” says Cubitt. “The fetus growing is like building the fence. You need to build it correctly. Once the foal is born, that’s like painting the fence.” There is not a lot you can do to cover up poor structure. “Too many people think they can start feeding a foal the proper nutrients at weaning time,” she says. “They think that up to that point it’s all up to the mare. Yes, it’s up to the mother, but what she eats can make a big difference in how that foal develops.”

“The time to build the foundation for what that foal will be is during gestation when the embryo/fetus is developing.” Early Pregnancy Is A Crucial Time

Many people still think that the most important time to make sure the pregnant mare has adequate nutrition is during the last trimester when the fetus is growing fastest. “Actually, all that’s happening in that part of the pregnancy is that the fetus is laying down more tissue and fat,” Cubitt says. “All of the critical organs are already developed.” She points out that the heart is one of the first organs formed. “You can see the heartbeat of the embryo on ultrasound by 18 to 20 days’ gestation. The heart is a very important organ—especially for an animal that will have an athletic career—and if it’s already functioning and beating that early, critical growth has already been occurring.”


A Leg Up The first 30 days of pregnancy are crucial, especially in terms of early embryonic loss. If the mare is thin, or expending energy trying to stay healthy (fighting disease or some other problem) she may not continue the pregnancy. This early stage is when you want to make sure everything is going properly, with adequate nutrition for optimum health of the mare. “You can’t just suddenly start feeding her properly after you know she’s pregnant, because by that time you are already well into that first crucial phase of gestation,” says Cubitt. “There are feeding and management factors that are crucial at the very beginning. You don’t want to stress the mare by underfeeding, or excessive exercise or transport.” The embryo is floating around until it implants into the uterine lining and is at a very vulnerable stage of existence. “Many mare owners need to give more consideration to maternal nutrition,” she continues. “If the goal of your breeding program is a strong, healthy foal, you want the early uterine environment to be optimum. The first thing a doctor tells a woman when she finds out she’s pregnant is to take prenatal vitamins. Humans and horses are not that different.” The mare doesn’t need a lot of extra calories during that initial stage, but she definitely needs all of the important vitamins and minerals that are crucial to embryonic development. She needs a well balanced diet that has the right amount of selenium, copper and other important trace

minerals, along with vitamins A, E, etc. You don’t want any deficiencies at that point in her pregnancy. “Having your mare on a ration-balancer supplement or a balanced plane of nutrition (whether the basic diet is pasture or hay) is absolutely critical during early gestation if you want to give her foal the best chance of being healthy and strong,” Cubitt says. “A lot of the research in fetal programming comes from human medicine; we know that what the mother is eating can predispose children to diseases later in life—problems that may not even show up until those children are adolescents. “Even though there’s no direct research that shows you could cause [osteochondrosis] problems in a foal by improper feeding of the mare, I think we can definitely make this connection,” she says. The way some mares are overfed or underfed certain nutrients can have long-lasting effects.

Overfeeding Can Be As Harmful As Underfeeding Overfeeding calories is never healthy, whether in humans or horses. This could lead to problems with obesity and insulin resistance in the offspring. “There’s also the issue of sheer physics,” says Cubitt. “There’s only a certain amount of space in the uterus. If you have a big, fat mare and she’s eating a lot and putting too much nutrition into the foal, it will grow very large and this may result in birthing difficulties or contracted tendons at birth because there wasn’t enough room for those long legs to move in the uterus.

Requirements Change As Pregnancy Progresses “The latest NRC recommendations break pregnancy requirements into more phases,” says equine nutritionist Tania Cubitt, Ph.D. In the earlier recommendations, they addressed just the beginning, middle and final trimester. Now it’s broken down into early pregnancy (the first four months) and then monthly (five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10 and 11 months) for various increases in nutrients. We know there are more specific changes in requirements as gestation progresses.” During the first four months, the mare doesn’t require much more than a balanced ration for a maintenance diet. “Many inactive/maintenance horses just get pasture or grass hay, with no supplement,” she explains, “but you need to make sure it’s a balanced diet, with adequate

protein, for example. For the average horse that’s not doing any exercise, you only need 630 grams of protein for a 500-kilogram horse (1,100 pounds). In the early stages of gestation, when all the organs of the fetus are being developed, that’s also enough protein for the pregnant mare. “Then as the fetus gets larger during the middle stage of pregnancy, the mare needs more protein. By the end of the middle stage, all the fetal limbs are developed and the crown-rump length (from the point of the head to the base of the tail) is also fully developed. After that, all we’re doing while feeding the mare during the final part of gestation (the last three months) is laying down more tissue and fat, fleshing out what’s already formed.”

A Leg Up Proper Nutrition Is Important Before The Pregnancy Begins When people ask Tania Cubitt, Ph.D., about the most important time to feed their mare, she says it starts before that mare is ever bred. “Putting her on a proper plane of nutrition will increase her likelihood of getting pregnant,” she explains. “Things like selenium are very important for fertility, for instance, so making sure the mare has adequate amounts of trace minerals and vitamins can increase her ability to get pregnant. We have to consider pregnancy a luxury. The goal of any animal is to stay alive. The second goal is to reproduce. If there’s not enough nutrition, the animal will not reproduce. Anorexic women and thin animals do not cycle.” At the other extreme, a mare that is too fat is not a good candidate for breeding. “Obese mares, just like obese women, have more problems in getting pregnant,” Cubitt

“There is a happy medium between being overweight and underweight,” she adds. “The bottom line is that the mare needs an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals, and good quality protein—aside from the calories.” Some mare owners overfeed their mares from the beginning, and this can lead to other problems. “When we say that a mare should be on a good nutritional program, this doesn’t necessarily mean more calories. Typically people associate a better quality diet with calories, but this is not the case.” The diet simply needs to be balanced to include all the important nutrients. “We have not yet done the long-term research in horses to confirm this, but we suspect it to be true because long-term research has been done in humans,” Cubitt says. “There are many studies that show that obese women may predispose their offspring to certain metabolic disorders later in life, like diabetes and insulin resistance. Young males may be infertile. Even though we haven’t done similar research in horses, we must not ignore the fact that obese, overfed mares could potentially have the same detrimental effects on their foals.” Overfeeding calories may predispose a mare’s offspring to being at higher risk for metabolic disorders, which then creates a higher risk for laminitis or growth problems like 304 | A R A BI A n HOR SE T I MES

says. “One study at the University of Kentucky showed that some obese mares have a tendency to get stuck in the luteal phase of their cycle. Each cycle has a follicular phase where the follicles are developing, then ovulation occurs and an egg is released. Then the follicle forms a corpus luteum (CL), which produces progesterone. If that egg was fertilized, it becomes an embryo and the progesterone produced by the CL helps maintain that pregnancy in the beginning. But if the egg does not get fertilized, then the CL is supposed to go away. In some obese mares, the CL does not regress, and the mare does not return to heat—sometimes for several months. You may miss out on that breeding season, and not get her bred again that year.” If the mare is not checked for pregnancy, the owner might just think she is pregnant because she is not cycling.

DOD. Most horsemen believe that it is not worth that risk. It is better to have mares in optimal body condition, neither thin nor fat. The extra weight on an obese mare can also put her at risk for problems as she becomes heavier in late pregnancy. All that weight is carried on four small feet, so there is significantly increased stress on feet and leg joints. “During my graduate program at the [Middleburg Agricultural Research and Extension Center] in Virginia, we had a mare that developed laminitis during her career as a show jumper,” says Cubitt. “She was retired and came to us to have foals. Every pregnancy, during her third trimester, she would get sore feet, just because of the extra weight of pregnancy. To have that mare obese would have been a disaster. “You need to make sure you are feeding a mare what she needs,” she continues. “That’s when the ration-balancer pellets are ideal because you can feed her a pound per day of those and know she is getting everything she needs, and adjust the total amount of energy (from the hay) accordingly. You could give a little alfalfa along with the grass hay if she needs more calories, for instance, or add a little oil or rice bran to the supplement pellets. If she’s an easy keeper, all she’ll need is the hay and ration-balancer.” Just because a mare is fat and getting lots of calories does not mean she is getting adequate nutrition. n
