Comments From The Editor

As I write this, the Olympics has just ended. For two weeks, we’ve watched every conceivable sport and athletes from all over the world competing against each other for fame and glory. The human interest stories have been legion, and every emotion has been on television and live-streamed on the Internet. Interestingly enough, it reminded me of our own U.S. Nationals. Yes, the Olympics is the Olympics; as much as we value our U.S. Nationals, it is not quite on that level. But for most of us, it is plenty. It is a challenge on every level: physical, mental, and emotional, and the performance depends not only on the competitor, but also on his/her relationship with a horse. In my view, whether you are there or just watching from afar, the Nationals is a spectacle that should make us all proud. Just as when we were watching the action in London, we can see the skill it takes to get there and feel the effort all the riders, drivers and handlers put out in pursuit of a ribbon. In my book, that makes winners out of everyone.

ason Krohn is rarely at a loss for words; however, when it comes to the 3-year-old stallion rrapture, all the young trainer can muster about his training with the horse is, “i just need to stay out of his way—that’s how good he is.” but that statement speaks volumes about just how special this stallion is. Jason, along with owner martha mcCullough and the rest of the oak Haven team, sees something great in this bay english horse, something that simply cannot be overlooked. And this spark of greatness has been apparent since the very beginning. rrapture’s dam, the JDm raindance daughter DD my Dance, was a special find on her own. “We purchased her to be a performance mare for martha,” says Jason. “We ended up winning two national champions, and

three reserve national championships with her before breeding her to sF specs shocwave. And that’s how rrapture came about. We’ve had him since day one.” martha adds to the story of rrapture’s beginning. “We used a surrogate mare; her name was 63. she was a big, grey Quarter Horse, and this little, bay, beautiful colt came out of her and would trot magnificently alongside her.” on the subject of the colt’s mannerisms, martha thinks back on his attitude and spirit from the very beginning. “He had this presence,” she says. “He was very respectful of his mom, always stayed close to her—old grey 63. He was so proud and just thought he was the cat’s meow. Always curious, always respectful, always

“He’s so talented that I kind of just guide him along, give him some direction, and stay out of his way.”

observing, no matter what he was doing, if there was a human around, he would stop and observe them. He was very bold as well. He would come up to us curious and never fearful or skittish at all. His first year and a half was spent at our ranch, about 30 miles south of blake’s farm in Lindale. After that, he and one of my other colts started to play a little too hard, so we sent him up to blake’s to get his training process started. They started very slow and gentle—he was always a really good thinker and we had a good foundation started, so he’s really come along nicely.” With a special connection to rrapture from the very inception of his idea to breed him, blake now marvels at what the colt is becoming. “i’ve seen so many foals in the last 40 years, but i’ve never seen a purebred who moves like this, and he’s done it since the first day we let him out of his stall. And it’s an everyday event; it’s not a rare sighting. every day this horse will come out and pick his knees up above level and strut around if you ask him to.” Versatility in Breeding and tr aining beauty and talent can get a horse like rrapture pretty far, but already at the age of 3, his ability to sire has been tested. bred last year as a 2-year-old, rrapture’s first crop of babies is up and trotting away, and his second crop is just in the works, as he bred several mares this year. As a product of blake’s visionary breeding program, the hope is that rrapture will add to both the show ring success 18 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

and breeding prowess of oak Haven Arabians. To blake, this is no issue at all. “Look at his pedigree,” he says. “i mean, he’s not an accident. You look at the national champion english horses that are just everywhere in his lineage, and you realize it’s not by chance that he’s so special. some of my favorite foals we had this year are by rrapture. They move, they’re gorgeous, they’re necky, they’re built well, they’ve got this drama about them like a halter horse would—they’re just priceless. i really can’t say enough about all of the rrapture babies.” speaking about his father’s breeding efforts in correlation with rrapture’s abilities and future, Jason knows everything about the horse. “my dad has put his heart and soul into the breeding program and rrapture is a direct result of that, so that makes him all the more special. As far as his training goes, he is a pleasure to work with. He’s easy in his stall, he’s happy—he really doesn’t have any bad qualities. He has such a superstar pedigree, and i think that really makes him stand out. And that transfers over to why the horse is what he is. it’s all in his attitude and his work ethic. You know, he’s kind of cocky and on occasion, he likes to pull a few tricks, but he does it in a playful way, so it’s fun. He likes to work really hard for you, which is nice because as far as studs go, sometimes they’re a little bit harder to train and they’re not all very willing to just go out there and do their job, but he’s different. His overall demeanor and expression will separate him from the rest of the pack. He gets really high on himself—he comes out to work


and he gets all puffed up and you can tell he’s really proud of himself and i think that’s a quality that will make him a really good show horse. And in turn, i feel that this will make him a good breeding horse as well if he can pass that trait on.” to nationals and Beyond making his show ring debut at the 2012 U.s. nationals in the purebred english Futurity, there are feelings of excitement, anticipation, nerves, and expectations forming in the bubble surrounding the exceptional stallion. it would appear that much is riding on the anticipated debut, and trainer Jason Krohn revels in the opportunity. “i’m excited, and i’m nervous at the same time,” he says. “it’s kind of a big deal for us and for the farm and for my customer.

it’s a little bit of pressure to make sure everything goes smoothly, but i’m not worried about showing him because we really like this horse and i think he’s great. That’s how good of a horse he is—he’s so talented that i kind of just guide him along, give him some direction, and stay out of his way.” martha views U.s. nationals just as any proud and anticipative owner would—with complete enthusiasm and eagerness. “i cannot wait; i am beyond excited,” she says. “He really takes your breath away when he goes. it’s like he knows he was born to do this. He just has so much drama about him and he loves to work; he loves his job. He really loves to perform. And it’s that much more special seeing a horse that we’ve had our hands on since the day he foaled.”

Oak Haven A r

A B i A n s

by Kara Larson

Located in the picturesque countryside of Lindale, Texas, oak Haven Arabians

is a farm established and operated on the idea of family, and it expresses a deep-

seated love for the Arabian horse. Luscious oak trees line the entrance to the farm, and the beautiful scenery of east Texas—rolling hills, pine trees and abundant

green pastures—welcome all newcomers and create a spectacular backdrop for a farm that is making major headway in today’s evolving Arabian industry.

Just 30 years ago, blake and Genna Krohn moved to Lindale, Texas, with big

hopes for this promising Arabian farm. Thirty years ago, blake worked for owners ira and sally morris, and upon their retirement 10 years later, he and Genna

recognized a wonderful opportunity for their family as they took the reins and

purchased oak Haven. Under the ownership of blake and Genna, oak Haven has transformed from a small Arabian farm to an increasingly successful training and breeding operation. With perseverance, hard work, experience and love for the

Arabian horse, oak Haven continues to prove itself in the marketing, breeding and training aspects of the Arabian industry.

increased inVentory, less space With a full training barn, big hopes for breeding and limited time, oak Haven as it was had a problem of limited space and time—not a terrible problem to have, but a serious issue nonetheless. it needed to facilitate the promising breeding program that was surfacing under blake’s knowledge and efforts. in Jason’s eyes, blake and Genna’s son, the problem was solved very organically. “We’re so busy with the training barn right now; the training business is booming,” he says. “The barn is full with horses that we’ve bred and outside horses as well. in the past several years, as we took on more customer horses and more broodmares, we found ourselves simply bursting at the seams. That was one of the main reasons we decided to move all of our mares down to martha’s farm. This opportunity with martha [mcCullough] just kind of arose. she had acquired hundreds of acres over the years and it just all fell into place. When martha decided to make oak Haven south part of our team, it was great to be able to utilize her farm for our breeding program. We were simply running out of room to house our mares and foals, so her addition to the team has allowed our breeding program to get bigger than ever.” a WorthWhile solution: oak haVen south A successful breeding and training farm is, in one word, consuming. Consuming of time, pasture space, and dollars; however, to the oak Haven team, it’s all worth it. The passion for the Arabian horse is alive and well at this Texas farm, and this fact is apparent in the addition of oak Haven south. it has enabled blake to do a lot more with breeding than he ever thought possible. owner of oak Haven south, martha mcCullough, shares the start of the move to her bullard, Texas, ranch, which is just 30 miles south of Lindale. “it’s been a matter of a couple years that we’ve acquired 500 acres. in 2003 we got our first acreage and we’ve just added on since then. some of it is timber, but a lot of it is coastal hayfields, and then we have eight large pastures. blake’s farm is really pretty small; his pastures and turnouts aren’t really big enough to facilitate the breeding program that oak Haven has built up. i have probably 50 horses at my place and i really don’t have more than six or so to a pasture, so the babies have room to run and play. my yearlings will just all of a sudden take off and tear across a 40-acre pasture—they

get exercise, they grow big and strong, they have a good quality coastal pasture, and they really have time to play and be kids.” a system For all ages From pregnancy to birth, weaning to training, the system that oak Haven has figured out in conjunction with oak Haven south is foolproof, effective, and above all, great for the horses. All the breeding is done in Lindale, where wife and mother, Genna Krohn, does the collecting, inseminating—really everything other than checking the mares. After this, oak Haven south comes into the picture. “They’re foaled at blake’s,” martha says. “When they’re about a month old, they come back down to my place with their mom. When we get the babies, my husband— who’s not necessarily a horse person, but an animal person—and i go out and play with the babies. That’s our job; it’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it,” she laughs. “We play with the babies every day, socialize them, halter and lead them several times a week; they

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

really get handled a lot. We even start trimming their feet when they’re around 2 months old. They learn to like people here in the two idyllic years at our place in a big pasture with other playmates before they head up to blake’s to begin training.” Jason agrees that this system is one that is truly improving every aspect of oak Haven. “i feel like our product is getting even better because we’re sending our babies down there and they get to grow up like real horses. it’s a very natural environment and those horses become very healthy and strong—physically and mentally. They grow fast because they actually get to be horses for a couple years. it’s a perfect system we have!” martha offers a “real-world” association that she says their system is often lightheartedly compared to. “With this system, we always tease that we have the maternity Ward with all the broodmares, the nursery, the preschool, and then the nursing home because we have all the geriatric horses as well. After preschool, they go up to their education at blake’s. They grow accustomed to going back


and forth in the trailer at a month old for pictures and such, so by the time they’re a year old, they think nothing of getting on and off the trailer because they’ve been on it so many times.” passion is contagious successful breeding takes knowledge—an understanding of breeding lines, personal preferences, and a vision for the future you’re looking to create with your horses. it’s all very methodical, and yet, a very beautiful and exciting process. still, although knowledge is key, it’s passion that instills a lifetime love. it was from a passion for the Arabian horse that blake started his journey in the business so many years ago. “i got my first Arabian when i was 14, and i knew from the very beginning that i wanted to be a trainer,” he says. “i was so consumed by their beauty, and i loved riding. And today, i still love everything about Arabian horses. From the moment i step into the barn and smell the aroma of horses, all the way to the end of the day when i’ve made headway with maybe half of them, it’s my passion.” blake’s passion turned to reality when he bred his first horse at the age of 19. This is when he bought his first saddlebred mare from Vicki Humphrey and ended up breeding her to get the only Half-Arabian offspring by Khemosabi’s sire, Amerigo. “That was the first horse i raised, and he was also national champion in english pleasure with my wife,” blake continues. “i bred my saddlebred mare repeatedly and she went on to have three national champion english horses in a row.” After this, he was hooked. Then, 20 years ago, as Genna and blake purchased oak Haven, blake was allowed to diversify and get more serious about breeding quality Arabians. Today, he couldn’t be more pleased with the direction of oak Haven’s breeding program. “We’ve got some really neat broodmares. When you’re breeding and you’re really immersed in it, it’s great. You learn all the different bloodlines and you can look at a pedigree and really get excited about what you see and the horses’ potential to produce some fun performance horses. one of my favorite sire lines to see is a line-bred *bask horse, so when i come across that as a breeder, i just see so much potential.” You know what they say about passion—it’s contagious! Under blake’s influence, this seems to ring especially true for martha. “The breeding aspect evolved with blake,” she says. “He inspired my interest in breeding and i

really don’t have the knowledge that he has about all the bloodlines. in the beginning, i pretty much just took his advice and bred what he told me to. now, as i’m in more, i have a special love for Afires Heir, and our rrapture babies this year are just unbelievable. i think he’s just going to be an amazing producer. so, it’s become a really fun and interesting process for me to become involved in.” the BeneFits oF a ground-up operation breeding, handling, care, breaking, training—from day one of an oak Haven horse’s life, it is under the allinclusive roof of this “one-stop shop” Arabian farm. From here, as every cliché reads, the key to progress is goal

setting. This idea isn’t just fluff; it’s proven true many a time, including in the case of oak Haven Arabians. “Like anybody else, we want to breed and show national champions,” says Jason. “That’s really the ultimate goal, but it’s more important that i just train every horse to the best of its ability.” it’s through this hard work that the training regime has led oak Haven to the green pastures of show ring success. This year at the region 9 Championships, oak Haven brought home a total of 30 champion and reserve championships, and around 50 top fives, for the highest number of wins of any barn at the show—an indication of the diligence and commitment of the oak Haven program. Another example of show ring success is exemplified through the fact that Jason has ridden two of oak Haven’s own foals to national championships, confirming that the promising and relatively young breeding program really can produce from the ground up. Through the hard work and dedication of blake to advance the breeding capabilities of the farm, he has proven that oak Haven is not only able to train Arabians to their full

potential as show horses, but it has the means to breed special and talented horses with incredible potential. Through blake’s concern with finding the right crosses between their own and outside mares and stallions, new and exciting foals have been bred and trained at oak Haven. starting from the ground up is not an easy feat for a growing farm, but oak Haven is branching into a full-service farm where breeding, training, and marketing are all well within the range of their abilities. A definite point of pride comes from raising a baby from start to finish, and with time, effort, understanding, and perseverance, oak Haven has proven that it can transcend into a farm that can truly do it all! blake knows the benefits of his ground-up system. “The main thing for us is still the training facility here, but oftentimes if we don’t have the product when someone is ready to buy, that can be a problem. so, for us, i think

Toi Bask O H and Blake Krohn.

it’s really beneficial to be a sort of ‘one-stop shop.’ i like to know what i’m putting somebody into in terms of purchasing horses for them. And it gives us the ability to say, ‘You know, this one really isn’t working out, but that one is going to be amazing,’ and we know because we’ve brought it up and lived with it for years. That’s a huge benefit to our facility and our clients as well. We’re definitely blessed in that area. We’re able to have some nice horses for people that want to get involved.” more on this always-improving training program, which is a direct result of the breeding program, comes from Jason, who is very grateful for the horses he’s been able to ride. “i’ve had the opportunity of riding some really great horses from our breeding program. being a young trainer in this business, i’ve got to compete with the established and well known trainers, so those guys get first dibs on the best horses usually. if you have a great horse out there,

nine times out of 10, they’re going to go to one of those guys. so, personally for me, people don’t really call me and say, ‘Hey, i’ve got the best horse in the country and we want you to train it’; it just doesn’t usually work out

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

that way. so, as a young trainer trying to make a name for myself, our breeding program is our biggest asset. i’m able to ride the best horses in the country, because my dad has put the time into breeding them. both of my U.s. national championships were horses that came from breeding programs that we have cultivated, and had our hands in and managed for ourselves. Getting to ride these amazing horses that we’ve bred is really half the battle, and that’s what makes people want to send more horses to us and give us a chance. A lot of it has to do with getting people to believe in your abilities as a trainer. When you do well in the show ring, you’re showing what you are capable of doing with a high-quality horse.” a Family eFFort speaking on the inf luence of his dad at oak Haven, Jason cannot adequately express his admiration. “He’s done a lot of the hard work setting up the clientele and the career, so i was able to walk into these great horses,” he says, “and that’s a huge deal for me to be able to do that. i don’t want to take that for granted—not for one second. i know that i’ve been given an amazing product to work with. if my dad was giving me a mediocre product, i couldn’t make it great. Case in point with rrapture: i just need to stay out of his way. That horse is great the way that God made him, and my training is trying to coddle him along. He’s a big trotting horse and he’s fun, and i hope he excites people the way he has excited me and my dad and my family; he’s a special horse. i’ve already seen what he can do breedingwise—he’s bred beautiful, fancy horses, and i’m really anxious to get those guys trained and ready to show too. it’s important to always keep your eyes on the future for the progression of the farm.” it’s that excitement, that unbridled passion for making oak Haven into a successful and sustainable entity, that keeps the farm and everyone involved at the edge of their seats, anxiously awaiting what lies ahead in oak Haven’s promising future. being the older generation of oak Haven, blake, understands that his involvement with the Arabian horse goes far beyond what he’s done for his family farm. He has the ability to look elsewhere, see outside the blinders, and think for the good of the entire Arabian industry. blake’s stamp on oak Haven includes more than just the training aspect of the farm. Through time, effort, and a deep understanding of the Arabian horse, blake works


hard to expand the farm through breeding prospective champions. His hope for the future of oak Haven and the Arabian breed in general through upcoming foal crops is giving the farm a fresh market to tap into. “it’s important that we identify the people who have the knowledge and the ability to recognize the horses that really should be producing our future generations of horses. That’s part of the responsibility we take on as we look to the future of the Arabian horse. As breeders in the Arabian industry, i believe that we are stewards of this breed. i think it’s much bigger than the fact that

i love horses. in my opinion, it’s become a commitment to the Arabian breed for future generations. i love being involved with them, but i’m also committed to teaching other people about these horses and being committed to raising quality and worthwhile animals that are easy for other people to handle. And like i said, i want to be a responsible steward of the breed and build something that endures forever.” oak Haven Arabians—where passion endures, knowledge inspires, and hard work overcomes. ■

Hey HallelujaH (1993-2012) by Linda White “He touched our souls and will never be forgotten,” reads the Strawberry Banks website announcing the death of its stallion, Hey Hallelujah, on July 24, 2012. Hey Hallelujah’s 12 national performances—six national championships, one reserve and five top tens—in harness and under saddle are forever etched in the memories of everyone who ever saw him. But the grey stallion’s influence extends far beyond the show ring. His very existence had a magical, predestined quality. Brandon Bessey and his father, Don, bred Hey Hallelujah. “We were in the Huckleberry Bey Syndicate,” Bessey says. “We had always loved Hallelujah Bask (*Bask x Heritage Montoya, by El Magato), and were able to buy her in February 1992 to breed to Huck, but it took us until December to finally get her in foal. Huck died three weeks later. The irony is that Hallelujah Bask was conceived in June 1979; *Bask died three weeks later.” “Don Bessey called me after the 1992 breeding season was over,” says Dick Adams, who was breeding manager at Royal Oaks Arabians at the time, and in charge of Hallelujah Bask while she was being bred to Huckleberry Bey. “Huckleberry Bey was in poor health, the mare hadn’t produced a foal for years, and they couldn’t get her to settle. I encouraged the Besseys to persist with Huck. All the odds were against its ever happening, but Hallelujah Bask finally got in foal to Huck in December 1992.” “Brian Murch trained Hey Hallelujah his entire career, and Brian and his wife, Melanie, were there at Alamo Pintado Veterinary Clinic on November 10, 1993, when Hey Hallelujah was foaled,” Bessey recalls. “They called us 10 minutes later, so I dashed over to see mother and baby.” Steve Heathcott was there, too. “I was headed north that day, so I stopped at Alamo Pintado Clinic to check on Hallelujah Bask,” he says. “I had encouraged my clients, the Besseys, to buy her from Chestnut Hill Farm to breed to Huckleberry Bey. So I got to see Hey Hallelujah a couple of hours after he was born! When I was there, Brian had left to run an errand, so I left him a note on Hallelujah Bask’s stall door: ‘Meet you in three years at the Futurities!’” “He was a November foal, so it was a long process for everything to come together,” Brian Murch says. “Once we

figured out how to channel all his energy and talent, he became what he was destined to be. I’ve always believed that driving him all the time we did, helped him become what he was under saddle. His life had so many special moments.” Hey Hallelujah earned 27 major U.S. and Canadian national and regional titles in English pleasure, pleasure driving, informal combination and stallion halter. In his final national show ring appearances, he again prevailed. He was 2002 U.S. National Champion Pleasure Driving with Brian Murch and U.S. National Champion Pleasure Driving AAOTD with Neil Chur. He became the only horse in Arabian breed history ever to win the Triple Crown (Scottsdale, Canadian and U.S. National Championships) twice, in both Pleasure Driving (1999) and English Pleasure (2001). His greatness seemed to be preordained. Hallelujah Bask, his dam, was a gifted park horse. In 1988 she trotted to titles of Scottsdale Champion, Canadian National Champion and U.S. National Reserve Champion Park Horse and was 1989 U.S. National Reserve Champion in Park in her last show ring appearance. Like Hey Hallelujah, many of Huckleberry Bey’s offspring and grandget have created a dynasty around their famous ancestor. And the beat goes on: at this writing, Hey Hallelujah’s 18 national-winning purebred and Half-Arabian offspring have accumulated 84 national awards in English pleasure, country English pleasure, country pleasure driving, ladies’ side saddle, hunter pleasure and halter. Hey Hallelujah touched our souls. His history-making show ring performances and his lasting influence as a sire will never be forgotten. His light was very bright. ■ Volume 43, No. 3 | 49

inning the 2002 U.S. National Championship in Pleasure Driving AAOTD with Hey was Neil’s first—and only— national championship. I remember going to a Lasma sale one year to look at Hallelujah Bask, who was 3 at the time. We loved her, but there were some heavy figures flying around, so we didn’t get her. How nice that we got to own her son! “When Brian and Melanie came here, Don Smith, who owned Hey at the time, sent him along with Brian, so they and Hey Hallelujah were here for our October 2001 Open House. We all loved him, and Neil and I decided to buy him. Melanie went into the office, called Dick Adams, and negotiated on the phone with him for Don Smith. She kept going back and forth from the phone to Neil, then back to the phone. “Neil finally gave Melanie a Post-It® note and told her, ‘Tell him this is how much we will pay for the horse, and that’s it. Period.’ Melanie went back in, and when she came out she was grinning and nodding her head—so we got to announce at the Open House that we had bought Hey Hallelujah, and that he would stay at Strawberry Banks forever. He was such a wonderful horse.”—Barbara Chur

Hey Hallelujah

He touched our souls and will never be forgotten ...

“We knew from the day he was born that he was going to be something special. When he won his first national title, 1997 U.S. National Reserve Champion in Pleasure Driving, in reality, as a November foal, he was only a 3 year-old. “At 9 years old, the night he won the 2001 U.S. National English Pleasure Championship, Hey Hallelujah showed us all what kind of horse he was and what a big heart he had, enduring all odds. He had become U.S. National Champion English Pleasure Horse, making history once again in completing the English pleasure Triple Crown. “What an honor it has been to be involved with one of the greatest horses in history, from start to finish, in my career. Thank you so much, Barbara, for the opportunity Hey Hallelujah has had here at Strawberry Banks Farm. He had a fantastic life, and he will live on through his beautiful youngsters here at the farm!” —Brian Murch “Hey Hallelujah was a ‘meant to be’ horse. Our family was in the Huckleberry Bey syndicate, and we had Steve Heathcott, Jim Lowe and Brian Murch looking for a top mare to breed to him. Hallelujah Bask had always been my favorite, and at the exact moment I was thinking about her, my dad called. ‘Where is Hallelujah Bask?’ he asked. “Huckleberry Bey had developed a pituitary tumor. Hallelujah Bask hadn’t had a foal in five or six years, and she wasn’t getting in foal. Then Huck had a remission, so we kept breeding her.

She magically got in foal in December … and Huck died a couple weeks later. I stayed with Brian and Melanie as we waited for Hallelujah Bask to foal. When they called us, we dashed over to Alamo Pintado Clinic; Hey Hallelujah was 10 minutes old. What an amazing baby he was! He had this long, high-set neck, a beautiful face and straight legs—he had it all. His life has seemed predestined since the day he was born.”—Brandon Bessey “He was a really kind, willing, good-thinking horse. He was the last of a dying breed; he won national titles in halter and performance. I was the only person ever to show him at halter. With me he was 2000 U.S. and Canadian National Top Ten Stallion. He was also Pacific Slope and Region 3 Champion in 2000. As long as you asked him nicely, he was very kind to deal with. His attitude was, ‘Stay out of my way, let me do what I do, and I’ll make you look like a star.’ “And Brian Murch was the perfect person to train that horse. Theirs was the ultimate partnership between man and horse.” —Steve Heathcott “Brian had Hey Hallelujah from day one, and as we all watched this youngster come up, it was obvious he was something special. At the 2001 U.S. Nationals, I had just quit training and begun consulting. I was working with Strawberry Banks, who bred and owned A Temptation; Tim Shea had him. The Churs had recently purchased Hey Hallelujah from Don and Sue

Smith, and Brian was now at Strawberry Banks. I would have bet that A Temptation would become the next U.S. National Champion, but Hey Hallelujah was so gritty and so determined that he flat outworked A Temptation. And the most willful soul in the ring that night was Brian Murch. They truly were a match made in heaven. They had chemistry like no other pair I have ever seen.”—Raymond LaCroix “He was my best friend. I came to Strawberry Banks in 2000, and he came here in 2001. I was always his caretaker. He had the biggest heart, and he always tried so hard to please you. I called him ‘Hey Diggety’ because he could be so funny. He was the first horse I would turn out each morning. He would play, and every day, when we went to lunch, he would race the cars. He would flatten his ears and run as fast as he could; it was a game to him. He had so much personality! When I free-longed him, I’d chase him with the shaker bottle, crouching down and saying, ‘I’m gonna getcha, gonna getcha, gonna getcha!’ He would stop and just look at me, and snort and blow. “He would stand in the cross-ties and I would massage the inside of his nostrils and his muzzle. He loved that! I would put my face on his muzzle and kiss him, and he would kiss me back. He is the first animal I have loved so much. There will never be another one like him.”—Nicole Farrell

We at Quarry Hill Farm mourn the passing of Hey Hallelujah, one of the most beautiful and talented Arabian english performance stallions. We rejoice, however, in having bred his singularly lovely and gifted daughter QH Tallulah (Hey Hallelujah x especialley, by Tempter) who embodies the beauty, grace, athleticism and temperament of her pedigree. The Strawberry banks breeding program has profoundly influenced our own, and we are forever grateful to barbara and the late Neil Chur for giving us the opportunity to acquire Especialley (Tempter, by Cognac x elegant Crystal, by *Aladdinn), ericca’s full sister and our most prized foundation mare.

Insights Into

English Pleasure by Kara Larson

The sound of light hooves with big strides, like a rhythmic stampede down the rail ‌ the resounding cheers of a crowd in amazement ‌ the picture-perfect sight of a truly special English horse, with red roses dancing on its neck in a well-deserved victory pass. These are the components of the Arabian English division, a division known for its deep competition and an excitement all its own. However, we all know that behind the gloss and boldness of every great English pleasure horse stands a trainer who is deeply involved with his or her horse. As they stoke the fire of the Arabian English horse, we sit close by, feeling the heat and waiting on their next move. Would you like to see into the minds of some of the top English trainers in the Arabian industry? For an insight into the always-evolving and energetic English pleasure division, keep reading.

If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? I would emphasize the word pleasure in the country and English pleasure divisions.

Cedar Ridge Arabians - Jordan, Minn.

What is your favorite memory with an English horse? My favorite memories are the mares FF Summer Storm and Halaili Escapade, who were both ridden by Gene LaCroix. Both mares were incredibly beautiful and gifted athletes. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? The biggest factor is the breeding of a better conformed horse all around. Thank the breeders for this! What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” The horse needs to be trained to fit the amateur as much as the amateur needs to be trained to fit the horse.

Leah Beth Boyd and Starr Llight.

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? The biggest difference is probably conformation. First and foremost, to be a successful English horse, they just have to be built to do it. Also, a higher energy level is important. I think the things that make good English horses great—heart, intensity, try— apply to the characteristics of great horses in all disciplines. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? This isn’t just for the English division, but I’d like to see select rider classes added to Youth Nationals. I think that would be a great class for Youth National first-timers! What is your favorite memory with an English horse? Showing Starr Llight in the open English last year will be a tough memory for me to ever top! What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” Keeping it simple for the horse is really important. Working on one thing at a time during training or lessons keeps horses and amateurs happy and moving forward.

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? The Arabian English horse is framed higher (its neck is set more upright and higher on its shoulders) with more action in its front and the back end—the country horses being moderately collected, the English pleasure horse having more collection, and the park horse having extreme collection.

Cedar Ridge Arabians - Jordan, Minn.

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? Most notably, I would say the differing levels of impulsion. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? If I could change one thing, I would like to place more emphasis on the “pleasure” part.

What is your favorite memory with an English horse? I would have to go back to 1995 when I owned and showed one of the greatest English horses of all time, Gai Argosy. It was an amazing feeling when people were rushing to the stands to watch us show… an even more amazing feeling was when the judges told me that it was an honor to watch me ride that beautiful horse.

What is your favorite memory with an English horse? Getting beat by my old lady at U.S. Nationals will be a hard one to live down for a while …

The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? In my mind, the biggest factor in the evolution of the Arabian English horse is pinpointed breeding. Breeders focus on breeding for a much more specific horse now. Artificial insemination has allowed us to be even more specific on the desirable traits that we are trying to improve and look for in our English horses. Oh, by the way, I think the horse trainers in our breed have gotten much better and more detailed as well!

The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? The biggest changes have been a direct result of the evolution of training and breeding. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” Keeping the process straightforward is most important. Horses are straightforward creatures—the people are the ones who are complicated. If your horse has a clear understanding of his job, then certainly the person riding him will as well.

Chase Harvill Training Centre - Magnolia, Texas What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? The Arabian English horse is specifically bred to be upright through the shoulders and neck, short backed and strong through the hip. The English horse tends to be a higher energy, forward-thinking horse that travels uphill with presence and a “look-at-me” attitude.

What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” When I am training a horse for an amateur, I really have to figure out what each individual amateur needs and can handle. I think the amateur horse needs to be a forgiving horse that is very confident and happy in their job. The amateur horse needs to have simple and straightforward cues so that performance can be at a maximum for a rider that doesn’t have as much experience and time in the saddle.

If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? I believe that sometimes our horses are judged too much on mistakes rather than quality, performance, and soundness in the show ring. A confident judge, in my opinion, shouldn’t have to wait to pin a class depending on what mistakes were made by the horses and exhibitors. 56 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

watch English classes, they’re looking to see brilliant and exciting performances from the horses—something that makes your heart race as you wait for the gate to open! If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? Looking at the expression and effort our horses are exhibiting, it often appears that some horses are pushed beyond where they are truly comfortable performing. For me, I’d rather see a horse’s

Not only is it my responsibility to train their mount to be amateur friendly, it’s my responsibility to educate the amateur to be ready to guide their horse and to exceed their expectations. It’s a journey to making a victory pass, and we strive to make that journey a safe and joyful process.

career that has been impressive with accomplishments and duration, not just a one- or two-year flash. When judging, I love to see that brilliant performance without a “maxed-out” performance. What is your favorite memory with an English horse? VJ Justaflame’s U.S. National Reserve Championship in 2009 with Lisa Shumate, showing in Purebred English Pleasure AAOTR 40 & Over at Tulsa. “Flame” will always be one of my favorite horses that I’ve been blessed to train; he’s got a heart of gold and gave a 110% effort every time I sat on his back. It was a spectacular class, and Lisa rode with such determination and heart; they were the perfect team! The look in his eye, so full of wonder and kindness, was almost matched by Lisa’s leaps in the air when she got off of him! I’ll never forget that night. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? Without a doubt—breeding. There are some great breeders in our industry that have honed in on the ability to breed for specific purposes. They’ve not only worked on breeding for athletic ability, but have definitely been making

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? I’d say that the very first and most important thing that makes an English horse different is the shape of their body and, most importantly, that they have more of a vertical build as opposed to the horizontal build which a western horse might have. An English horse should be taller than it is long; so, one of the most important things is that they carry their head up, tall and proud. If they don’t carry themselves tall and proud just standing around, in the crossties and whatnot, it will be hard to get it up where it needs to be when you want to ride them. That is the most characteristic thing about English, country, and park horses as opposed to other divisions. It’s all in terms of how they’re built, how they carry themselves, and how they take an English-style posture or frame. There are lots of other things, but that’s number one. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? I would like to see that the country, English, and park divisions have greater detail in their job

description for the judges to evaluate these horses. It is important that every judge and every exhibitor knows the rules that we are supposed to follow. Making sure everybody knows what is the ideal country horse would be incredibly beneficial; however, it would take some effort. Someone or a group of people would have to spend the time, put the details down, get it agreed on by a group of our peers, and then we could all start to operate on an even playing field. What’s difficult is when you’re not sure what the rules are or you’re not sure what certain people are looking for. As a horse trainer, this is how I make my living. I’ve invested my entire life trying to be the best I can be. I’ve invested all my time and effort into this business in which I support my family; so, it would be nice if some uniformity in rules and judging were considered in a more favorable way. Maybe it could be introduced in the education of judges as some really specific guidelines, and they should be shared with everybody. In my opinion, this should be done for every division. We don’t want one person dictating how our horses are judged. It’s contrary to the evolution of our breed, and it’s contrary to good sense.

horses last longer. So, I think these are probably the biggest factors in the evolution of the breed—genetics and the amount of good trainers. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” I can convey to the amateur rider with a fair amount of certainty that what I tell them to do is going to have predictable results. The amateurs need to have confidence in themselves and their horse, and it needs to be as scripted as possible with uncomplicated, predictable results. If you ever ask any question about the horse, like a question about how it’s going to move away from your leg, we’d say that it would be an uncomplicated, predictable result. Put your leg on them and they should move forward and away. How do they deal with the bridle? They accept it without a whole bunch of fancy or intimidating timing issues—it should be uncomplicated with predictable results. We start off trying to keep it pretty simple and repeatable. As we move along, I have some people that want to know every detail and are capable of doing it, and that’s even more fun.

What is your favorite memory with an English horse? I’ve had so many good memories with horses, and it’s really been such a wonderful ride. I would say that since it’s fresh in my mind, one of my favorite memories was when my daughter came out of the UPHA class after her pattern and she nailed it—just the joy on her face for that one moment of accomplishment. It was so special. She hadn’t nailed a pattern all year, and it’s her very first year of walk/trot/ canter. In that moment I was so stoked with joy for her. It overwhelmed me. I remembered why I started doing this, I remembered all the lessons that horses can teach young people, and I remembered the never-ending quest (doesn’t matter how old you are—she’s 11 and I’m 49) to be better at something and to try to excel at something. That moment was for her and with her; it also really rang true and connected me to the roots of why I do this. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? I’d have to say DNA and rNA. Breeding has changed a lot, and with that, training has changed tremendously. Back in the day, there were only a couple of guys that could train a horse, and now, there’s a bunch of people that can train a horse. It’s made the competition that much greater and made people more sophisticated in their approach to training. It used to be a rougher endeavor, and it’s a lot more sophisticated now—there are just so many good trainers out there. There are also fewer horses for each trainer now; thus,

Oak Haven Arabians - Lindale, Texas

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? Honestly, I feel that all divisions take a very athletic horse. English is different in that it takes a very special type of demeanor—a demeanor that makes them exciting and very bold because it is such an exciting class. Also, I think this excitement comes from the special horses that have that drive and attitude that is exclusively English. When you go into the ring with an English horse, you want one that wants to do it and follows through with a bold and willing effort in the show ring. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? I would say, in the country division, to get away from the back. I think that we spend all this time teaching our horses to go forward and engage off their rear end, and then we ask them to halt and back up. It just seems counterproductive. What is your favorite memory with an English horse? I have a couple of favorite memories. My first national champion was a pretty special one. I’d won in Canada, but I’d never won at U.S., and that ride was pretty impressive. That horse was just spot on and everything came together at the right time. He worked great that week, he was healthy, he won with the amateur, he showed hard for me, and that was a really cool win. Another memory that sticks out in my mind was when I was showing Just Breezin in 2010 and ended up being reserve. It was


very consistent, one that is very steady in the bridle, and one that accommodates to the needs of the rider. If a rider has heavy hands and they want to be able to take a feel of that horse in the bridle to help balance themselves or it’s just the way they ride, I’ll put a bridle together for that horse that makes it possible for the rider to be able to take a hold of the horse. The same bridle adjustments can be done for a rider with soft hands. It’s all about accommodation.

so exciting, because we were showing in that little ring in Tulsa, everybody was standing on the rail, and the arena was packed. I had a great go and when they called for the lineup in the class, I went in, but a few people were still trotting around the ring. I’m standing next to Shawn Rooker and he turns and looks at me like “Okay, are you going to go or am I?” So, he takes back off and the crowd goes a little bit wild, and I sat there for a second and I thought, “Well, I think I’m done.” Then I got to thinking and took off again too. It was just neat because when I took off again to make another pass, the place just went nuts. It was twice as loud as it was for Shawn. That’s something I’ll never forget— the crowd on my side, not just my barn, but to have the house supporting you was really cool. In that moment, I just thought that whatever ended up happening, win or lose, I knew I’d never forget the way that moment felt.

If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? To put it simply, I think we have to always remember to not sacrifice balance and cadence for speed. What is your favorite memory with an English horse? Showing Hey Hallelujah at the 2001 U.S. Nationals in the Open English and beating the odds. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are?

The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? The two top ones are shoeing and breeding. I think that now we are moving away from the days where we bred versatile horses that were able to do several different divisions. I think we’re breeding for a specific thing now. We’re really not just trying to get lucky anymore—our breeding is getting to be so precise that we’ve gotten so good about it. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” You want to make those horses as consistent as possible. That’s one of the biggest things, because a trainer can ride those horses and make up for any inconsistencies with his timing. With an amateur, even the best amateurs, they are just not going to have the timing that a trainer does because they don’t ride every day. In this sense, an amateur needs a horse that is

horsemanship. There is many great male and female horse trainers that are getting better year after year; it’s just a matter of who has the better stock, and I think it’s become so competitive as a result of that. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” To me, there are several parts to that question. The first part of it is making sure that the horse is suitable to the rider—that they are the right size and fit each other—that’s a huge part of it. The second part comes in making sure that you train the horse according to what level rider you have and making it as simple as possible from that point.

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? The one thing we look for is more of an upright neck. We see a lot of horses that have a lot of motion, but they don’t have the ability to elevate their neck, or they don’t have the right shape to their neck to bridle. When it’s difficult for them, they’re just not going to want to do it. It’s a very demanding discipline when a horse is not built right; so, that’s probably the main thing that sets an English horse apart. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? I think we have a really nice division from the country to the open English to the park; for the most part, it’s a very spectacular and unique division. It is very much a hybrid of the saddle seat as it comes from the Saddlebred industry and also dressage. To train it and train it well, you have to understand engagement and body control. There are times when you see horses that aren’t so good because our gene pool and the number of horses we produce every year is shrinking, and certainly there are times that horses are forced or don’t look good. Yet, that happens in every division. Overall, I think we have a great division, and I think we should applaud the people who do it well. What is your favorite memory with an English horse? I showed a mare in 1987 named SA Passing Fancy, and I was top ten in English. It was the most fun and special ride I’ve ever had on any horse. She was extremely soft in the bridle and had a great change in gears from normal trot to strong trot. I could feel her elevate and go forward when it was time to go on. Everything was just perfect; you couldn’t have scripted it better. She gave me everything that she had, but it was so willing and so soft that it’s something that I’ll never forget.

Also, I have a lot of great memories from Blazin Fire. We won a lot of national championships together; he was a special horse. He loved to do his job. Several of his victories were in Freedom Hall, which is great. There is no place better to win than in Freedom Hall. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? I think that a lot of the evolution has to do with training and shoeing. I think that Gene and Ray LaCroix were the people who led us in the right direction and bred great horses and understood how to train them. Their method and philosophy of training has branched out like a vine. All the successful English trainers today either worked for them or were greatly influenced by them. In shoeing, a lot of people say that we’ve increased the motion by increasing the pads, toe length, and weight, and certainly that contributes, but I think these shoeing changes say that we have learned to make our horses comfortable. I was on the original hoof study committee that got us the pads back in the late 1980s, and our real concern was not to make them trot higher, but to make them more comfortable and happier with shoes that could fit and support their feet properly. I think we’ve done that. Thus, because of it, we have better moving horses. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” First and foremost, I think you have to understand the level of the rider, One of the great things about having English horses that are talented is that you get to work them every day! And it’s fun! Yet, we don’t necessarily take into account our own amateurs and what they need. However, I’ve learned how incredibly important it is to keep that in mind and train the horse to fit the rider, whatever


their level might be. Impulsion, speed, strong in bridle … it may not be much to us, but it might be to them, so we have to learn to train with them in mind to ensure that they can be comfortable and happy with their rides. My philosophy has always been that it’s my job to train the horse. If I’m a really good horse trainer, which I would like to be, I’ve got to be able to train the horse to where it will be able to carry that rider. It’s our responsibility to do this; otherwise, the people aren’t going to stay with it. They’re going to get discouraged and do something else. We all recognize this and go to great lengths to try to make it work.

Quintus

Colonial Wood Arabians - Pilot Point, Texas

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? The biggest thing about an English pleasure horse is the way it carries itself. It should raise up out of the shoulders and step underneath itself when it takes off at the trot, or even at the canter. You don’t get quite like that at the other divisions—you’re looking for balanced movers, but you’re not looking for a horse that raises up and carries itself in that sense. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? The one thing I would change would probably be the knowledge of the people judging the horses, because there’s a lot of discrepancy when an English horse goes down the rail in terms of what is too much motion, what is overridden, what is smooth, and what is the perfect look. In every division, not just the English pleasure, I think we’re always looking for something that defines what the ideal horse is, and I don’t think we have found it in any of our divisions yet. People have ideas of what they think the ideal horse is, but as far as the industry as a whole, I think we have a lot of different ideas as to what the ideal horse should look like.

English, and it was just one of those rides where you weren’t looking for something to happen, you were just out there to ride. It’s great when rides like that come along! The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? I think that the biggest reason that the Arabian English pleasure horse has evolved is that we’ve started breeding specifically for that. To elaborate, the Saddlebreds breed specifically for motion—a horse that will put their ears up and trot big. That’s why they have that. Quarter Horses breed specifically for horses that lope—reiners, cutters—they don’t cross over. For many, many years, we were the versatile breed and when we finally started breeding specifically for one sport, I think that we got better and better at it. We started seeing different pedigrees that have the attributes that you wanted for English, or western, or whatever you’re looking to breed. In the Arabian world, we believe that we can breed a horse that can do many different divisions, but when we started breeding specifically for one thing, we started getting better and better at it. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” The thing to keep in mind if you’re training a horse for a particular amateur is that you want to know what their attributes are, what are they best at, and also, what are the things they’re not really great at so you can focus on making those better. As a trainer, I work on making transitions easier and making the horse to where it will just step up to it when you ask. The better your amateur rider is, the more on-edge you can put your horse, so you can get a better show horse. You have to really know your amateur and what they can do in order to train the horse specifically for them.

Also, in terms of the diversity of horses that are evolving and getting better and better, some people don’t particularly care for that. However, I think it only helps the breed. It’s just like stock cars; if someone gets a car to go faster, that’s the whole idea. For our horses, if we can get something to go better, that’s the whole idea. At times, we get to where we want to hold them back a little bit. What is your favorite memory with an English horse? In 2007, I rode my wife’s Half-Arabian park horse, Tequila Sunrise, and it was just a blast. A couple years after that, I rode Born to Boogie and was reserve in Half-Arabian

What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” To me, the biggest thing is to have the head carriage very established so the rider doesn’t have to struggle to maintain or create those elements when they’re showing. If a horse really wears his head, is really steady, has a high balance, and he’s really carrying himself, it makes it much easier for an amateur to ride.

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? Basically, an English horse just has a lot more movement and a gamer attitude. They should be trainable and ambitious. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? I’d go back to less emphasis on height of motion and place more emphasis on correctness of motion, softness, and position in the bridle. What is your favorite memory with an English horse? For me, in my three years with Hucklebey Berry, I won the Open English twice and was reserve once. Also, training and showing A Temptation to the national champion junior English title was incredibly special. I developed him and kicked him off, and he had a great career with Brian Murch as well. Also, Marty and I are also the breeders of Afires Heir. The two horses with the best record in open English are Hucklebey Berry and Afires Heir; so, that’s a pretty incredible thing in which to be a part of. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? The evolution has been towards a more crowd-pleasing show horse. There has been about a 45-year period of breeding horses to be superior saddle seat mounts. Horses with higher necks and more extravagant movement are fun to watch. More emphasis on expression and presence goes 62 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

What makes the Arabian English horse different from the horses in other divisions? The best difference is the fact that an English horse can have some minor infractions in their performance and not be considered out of the ribbons. Obviously, each division encourages a perfect class that meets all the class specifications with clean and deliberate departures, and a soft and consistent frame and headset. However, in the event the English horse gets a little excited, rushes, moves sideways or takes a couple extra steps to depart, his judges understand. This is unlike the western horse that is dialed in to a fault with no chance of success in the event that a minor mistake is made. If you could change one thing about the English division, what would it be? A large gene pool; I think the breeding of English horses has narrowed considerably. What is your favorite memory with an English horse? This is silly, but the horse on the billboards at U.S. Nationals in Louisville—when I saw those on I-65 and there was this

bigger than life English horse high in the sky, I wanted to see that horse. It really felt like I was arriving at something special. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? Our English horses are now considered athletes and treated as such. They utilize massage therapy, chiropractic work, natural products, vitamin supplements, professional dental services, flexing, and more in-depth information on lameness and treatment. Education of trainers has changed this breed for the better. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” Training an English horse for an amateur starts from the initial selection. You begin with the most suitable horse for the rider’s skill and fitness level and then move on to set short-and long-term goals with obtainable mile markers for both horse and rider. The trainer should always remember that the horse is for the amateur division and should be trained with the amateur’s best interest in mind.

What is your favorite memory with an English horse? There are so many memories. It’s always great when you and your horse “click” for a fantastic go or when you see the joy in an owner’s face when their horse has been superb. Probably, my first great memory is one of showing Commanders Falconette at the American Royal in my early career. She was a horse I had worked hard on, we took her to a horse show, and it all came together. She was phenomenal! Then there was the 1993 Region 11 Half-Arabian English pleasure class with Minni Moons Star. I’ll always remember that as the show where he first showed us how special he was going to be. The top fives in that class included: “Mooney,” Baskabella, Hearts On Fire, and All Night Long. The atmosphere in the arena for that class was electric, and all of those horses had or went on to win national tri-colors. “Mooney” was Half-Arabian English pleasure champion in 1996. It was his and my first national championship; so, obviously that is a horse dear to my heart. Another very special memory is Second Editions Debut with Shan and MHR Marteen with me winning their respective English classes at U.S. Nationals on the same night. I will also never forget when Starr Llight, as a 4-yearold with Leah Beth Boyd, edged her way into the top five in a Region 11 country English pleasure junior horse class judged by Bob Battaglia. It was about the time we were

beginning to realize Starr Llight was something out of the ordinary. Another favorite is when Starr Llight and Minni Moons Star with Leah Beth Boyd won their respective park classes at Youth Nationals in 2003. Also, there is Toi Jabaska winning the junior horse classes with me and the amateur classes with Lara Ames at both Canada and U.S. Nationals in 2002. Showing Matoi—that’s absolutely unforgettable. Watching Mamage and Shan excel for so many years was special. And Vegaz! What a special horse he is. The workoff between Vegaz and Afires Heir! I’ll never forget that. Truth be told, every willing, talented English horse in which I have enjoyed success is special to me, and I have special reasons for treasuring memories of each one of them. The Arabian English horse has evolved greatly over the years. What do you think the biggest contributing factors are? Certainly, breeding programs have led to more talented horses that frame up like we want much more easily. So, our breeding has led us to a more saddle seat style of horse, and our training techniques have vastly improved. The English horse has evolved because we have applied better training techniques to more suitable horses. What are the most important things to keep in mind when training a horse to be “amateur ready?” Generally speaking, for my amateurs, I like a less reactive horse that is balanced, properly rated, with plenty of forward and smooth transitions. n Volume 43, No. 3 | 63

Through the years, HH Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani, founder of Al Shahania Stud, has been wellrepresented at all those events and more.

In addition, it offers a collection of several top class stallions, and more are in the works.

The majority of Al Shahania’s horses, both for racing and showing, are in Qatar, although some are in Europe and a few—at this point, mainly show horses—are in the United States, where the stud is establishing a growing presence.

handicap rated race at Newbury, in the U.K. The goal is that through its sponsorship, all of these races can be elevated to Grade 1 level.

In Arabian Racing For Al Shahania, 2012 has begun with the same success it knew in 2011. In March, the 6-year-old grey colt Aziz, who placed second last year behind his stablemate Areej in the Qatar Arabian World Cup, came home first in the Emir’s Sword; in July, Jaafer, who won the Emir’s Sword in 2011 and Dubai’s Kahayla Classic in 2010, won the International Stakes at Newbury in England; and also in July, Mkeefa, last

Al Shahania supports endurance racing as well, mainly sponsoring and competing in races in Spain, where the stud’s Dakar de Fontnoire recently won the 120 kilometer CEI in Galicia, Xinzo de Limia.

In The Show Ring The star of the Al Shahania show string now is the 2-yearold Barzan Al Shahania, 2000 U.S. National Champion Mare. Based in the United States, Barzan opened 2011 as Scottsdale Junior Champion Colt before heading to Las Vegas, where he was named Supreme Champion Yearling Colt at the World Cup. Later in the year, he went on to pick up the trophies as U.S. National Champion Yearling Colt and U.S. National Champion Junior Colt. In 2012, he was selected unanimous World Cup Gold Supreme Champion Junior Stallion—with the highest point score ever awarded at the World Cup.

year’s winner of the Qatar Derby and Arabian Guineas, won the President of the UAE Cup at Newmarket, the richest Arabian race in the United Kingdom. All are homebreds.

“Barzan has always had the ability to make almost everyone stop and look,” says Greg Gallún, who has developed and handled the young contender throughout his career. “Even at his first steps, you knew he was rare and special.”

This year Al Shahania Stud also sponsored the first edition of the French Arabian 4-year-old Derby, as well as a current

In an unusual step, Barzan Al Shahania is scheduled to compete in Europe with Gallún later this year. “His eye

appeal is amazing, and it is our hope that his unique style is embraced in Europe as it has been in the U.S.A.,” the trainer says. “In this world of similarity, Barzan definitely is from a new mold. He surely is one of a kind, and will be a strong and worthy stallion for Al Shahania Stud. With the collection of mares he will receive, the results will be like Barzan himself—trendsetting.” Barzan Al Shahania is not the only one to put the stud’s name up in lights, however. The lovely mare Abha Qalams, purchased in 2010 and showing with Michael Byatt, was named U.S. National Champion Junior Mare later that year, and in 2011, Abha Raipur was selected U.S. National Champion 3-Year-Old Mare. A-Malaysia was 2011

Scottsdale International Breeders Classic Champion Junior Filly and U.S. National Top Ten 2-Year-Old Filly, while Taj Al Jamal was Qatar Bronze Champion Junior Colt. In February 2012, Abha Qalams returned to the show ring at Scottsdale, to be named Champion 5-Year-Old Mare, and the youngster Nada Al Shahania was named Scottsdale International Breeders Classic Reserve Champion Yearling Filly. Miss Marwan PA, beginning her show career by winning the yearling filly championship at Region 9, has served notice of her potential. And this year, the Polish filly Piacenza, who was Bialka’s Champion Filly and Best In Show as a 2-year-old—as well as high seller at the 2011 Pride of Poland Sale—will return to the ring in Europe.


The Al Shahania Breeding Program At the heart of Al Shahania’s success in the future is its breeding operation. This year, Al Shahania Stud has employed a total of roughly 100 racing and show broodmares, as well as several stallions available commercially by fresh or frozen semen. For racing, the farm has created a program based on a unique selection of top broodmares, crossing them with highly successful stallions such as Amer, and more recently, the American-born Burning Sand. This combination has resulted in horses such as Jaafer, Areej, Aziz, Asraa Min Albarq and others, who will carry the stud’s heritage in years to come. “The stud, however, also realizes the importance of keeping a pure French line going,” says Alexandra Newman, general manager of Al Shahania Stud, “so crossing our best purebred French mares with our stallions such as Djendel, Parador, Almas and Arawak d’Arroco allows for us to have a sustainable future.” For the show ring, the aim is to create a similar infrastructure. Mares such as MFA Annie’s Song, Oceania O, ZT Ludbectra and Abdu Mudira now anchor the team, with other top show mares being added to the program every year. Already Abha Qalams, Abha Raipur, A-Malaysia and others have

been introduced to the band. “That produces a solid base in terms of mares and stallions that are essential for breeding the champions of tomorrow,” Newman says.

All The World Is A Stage Long a touchstone in racing and now one of the fastest-rising entities in the Arabian show ring, Al Shahania is a world presence in the Arabian breed. In November 2011, when Qatar hosted WAHO’s annual conference, the stud welcomed a 400-strong WAHO delegation for an open house to introduce some of its headliners—in a sense, a personal introduction to the Arabian community as a whole. And the community was enchanted. “HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani got his love of horses from being around them since a young age,” says Alexandra Newman. “He rides and he enjoys being around his horses. He knows them individually; it’s the fun of selecting the stallions and the mares for breeding, seeing the foals in the paddock, and then watching them do well either on the racecourse or in the show ring. For him, Arabian horses are a passion. This is why it is such a pleasure working for a stud such as Al Shahania.” n

T uTTo A rAbi

Welcome to another edition of AHT and Tutto Arabi. Since our collaboration started, AHT has really loved getting to know more about Arabian breeders worldwide. So far, we’ve included horses and breeding programs from Europe, the U.K., the Middle East, South America, etc. One of the aspects of the Arabian breed that we at AHT are most proud is that it is, truly, worldwide in popularity. And one of the downsides to our very full schedules is that sometimes it is hard to learn as much about our international colleagues as we would like. Our joint effort makes it easier for us, and, we hope, for our readers as well. So, we would like to thank all the advertisers who joined AHT and Tutto Arabi in expanding our coverage. And here’s to the global spirit of Arabian horses!

The 2012

A Celebration of Friends, Family and Egyptian Arabian Horses by Beth Ellen Hunziker

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


The 2012 Egyptian Event, hosted by the Pyramid Society at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., June 4-9, has been proclaimed one of the very best—ever! Although this was the 32nd Egyptian Event, the Pyramid Society and the organizing committee found new and exciting ways to promote the Egyptian Arabian horse. Years of success for the Event don’t just happen; Henry Metz, president of the Pyramid Society for the past eight years, and the organization’s Board of Directors have developed a strategic plan with very specific objectives. Their singular goal always has been to promote the Egyptian Arabian horse and the Event does that in a number of important ways. It is a much anticipated social gathering with terrific learning opportunities, it is a world-class equine competition, and just as importantly, it is the Pyramid Society’s foundation for the support system it offers its membership of breeders and owners. There were many elements that made the 2012 Egyptian Event a unique and exciting experience. This year’s Event stayed true to its purpose—it was a breeder’s show. From beginning to end, everything about the show focused on supporting breeders. The daily educational seminars covered topics that were relevant to their needs and interests, such

as amateur showmanship, fundamentals of classic Arabian type, equine health and nutrition. The lecture about the history and culture of the Arabian horse was informative and inspiring. And those who preferred a lighter fare had their choice of the fantastic parties and presentations of exquisite horses throughout the week. The daily competition also was organized with great efficiency to allow for a very pleasurable schedule—not too early and not too late—with plenty of time for breeders to visit, exchange ideas and present their horses, which are the centerpieces of the Event. With more than 300 horses competing, the Event was similar in size to many of the prestigious international shows. In addition, a record number of people attended the Event or viewed it over its live stream broadcast, which was also available to the international Arabian community as well as all U.S. Equestrian Federation members. Each year, the Egyptian Event continues to grow in global appeal and importance. One of the most exciting features of the Event is the Egyptian Breeders Challenge, which was created to encourage breeders to strive for new levels of excellence with breeding programs. The program auctions the services of nominated straight Egyptian stallions, with the auction Volume 43, No. 3 | 81


proceeds funding the prize money for the foals that result from those breedings. The successful stallion service bidder must nominate the mare they select for the auction breeding to that stallion. The resulting foal, filly or colt, is then eligible to compete in the EBC Futurity class and win a portion of the proceeds of the auction from which the breeding was purchased. There were 34 stallions included in the 2012 EBC Stallion Service Auction on Wednesday evening, which was announced by Greg Knowles and Mike Neal. Highly competitive bidding marked the evening, the most exciting purchase being the service of Thee Desperado. Virginia and Ruel Gober, who bought the breeding, were recently introduced to the horses through one of Arabians Ltd.’s outreach programs. The Gobers own Amirah Gemaal

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

DB, the 2012 Champion EBC Futurity Straight Egyptian Yearling Filly and winner of more than $21,000. The couple generously reinvested their winnings into the breeding for Thee Desperado, so that it sold for $21,000. (That’s the kind of commitment these folks have!) The live EBC Stallion Service Auction attracted more than $153,000, and when the funds from the silent auction were added, the proceeds for the 2012 EBC Auction totaled more than $190,000, an increase over last year. The foals bred by the winning bidders at the EBC auction will be eligible for the 2014 EBC Yearling Filly and Colt classes. There are tremendous rewards for those who are diligent enough to wait—or smart enough to purchase an EBC foal. This year, Arabians Ltd. clients enjoyed a phenomenal clean sweep of both EBC Championships. The aforementioned Amirah Gemaal DB (Bellagio RCA x Silkh SWA) was Champion EBC Futurity Straight Egyptian Yearling Filly, while Premonition RCA (Thee Desperado x Mishaals Kiss RCA) was Champion EBC Futurity Straight Egyptian Yearling Colt. He won more than $21,000 for owner Judy Sirbasku (the RCA stands for Rock Creek Arabians of Texas Inc., the breeding arm


of Arabians Ltd.). With total EBC class payouts of more than $111,510 in 2012, the other top placing horses in the class also brought home sizable paychecks. After more than 10 years, the EBC program is a unanimous success. To expand upon that success, the Pyramid Society created the new Golden Scarab Futurity, which allows breeders to nominate foals which are sired by EBC stallions with breeding services not purchased at the auction. Special classes offering substantial paybacks for these foals will be held at the Event. Another Pyramid Society innovation is the care it has taken to ensure that there will be big name stallions in years to come. Many of the straight Egyptian stallions nominated for the Egyptian Breeders Challenge are mature, established sires with numerous foal crops on the ground. How can young, unproven stallions make their mark? The Society created the Heir Apparent Junior Stallion Presentation. This new and exciting showcase was a huge hit. The intense energy and drama of the gorgeous young stallions competing not for the opinion of the judges, but those who truly matter—the breeders—was amazing. The presentation featured 14 3-, 4- and 5-year-old stallions. They were trotted into the arena and then each took their designated place and displayed. The enthusiastic spectators were allowed to come down into the arena and see the stallions up close, each in a space enclosed by Hollywood-like velvet ropes separating them from their adoring fans. It all looked fabulous and very dramatic, but it also provided security for the horses and the crowd. Best of all, breedings were sold for some of these young studs! How much fun is it to go to the Egyptian Event and see the gorgeous horses show? Ask Frank Holloman and Christian Klingebiel; they enjoyed the The Kalkata Stakes Futurity Finals for 2-Year-Olds probably more than anyone did. They were among the many people at the show who bid on their favorite horse to win these classes—and they won. The Champion Futurity 2-YearOld Colt was Cent Anni (Mishaal HP x La Marsala), owned by Jamie Zissis. Frank Holloman was the winning Kalkata bidder for this class, and he earned $1,174 for

Supporting

The Egyptian Arabian Cause The Pyramid Society and its members are a hardworking, innovative and dedicated group of breeders from around the world. Preserving, protecting and promoting the Egyptian Arabian horse is a monumental task and the Society cannot do it alone. It requires the efforts of many to host, organize and finance the Event. This year, numerous patrons supported the Event as never before. Many of the sponsors were publicly acknowledged, while others contributed anonymously. Some of the patrons this year included the 2012 Egyptian Event Signature Sponsor, Albaydaa Stud, Mr. Ahmed El Talawy of Haram-Gizah, Egypt. Rhodium Stud of New Zealand created a cultural opportunity by sponsoring the art exhibit, “The Colors of Egypt,” which featured the photographic works of Dr. Nasr Marei and Richard T. Bryant. Markel Insurance generously sponsored the daily lectures. Al Shaqab, Member of the Qatar Foundation, sponsored the cultural and historical lecture presented by Dr. Sandra Olsen and Cynthia Culbertson. The EBC Stallion Auction was a highlight of the show, and the Lyday Farms sponsorship made it all the more enjoyable. It seemed that every day held surprises and touching gestures of generosity. Salayel Arabians of Saudi Arabia sponsored the Friday Night Gala and presented attendees with a beautiful booklet of rare prints as a memento of the evening. Among the most generous sponsors of the Event over the years have been the talented artists who contributed their beautiful, creative works for the benefit of the Pyramid Society, and 2012 was no different. Among the treasures this year was an extremely rare and valuable first casting of Nazeer by internationally acclaimed artist Karen Kasper. The Volume 43, No. 3 | 83


his participation. The Champion Futurity 2-Year-Old Filly was Desha Bahreyn (Laheeb Al Nasser x Bint Katyah), owned by Nayla Hayek. Christian Klingebiel was the winning Kalkata bidder for this class and she earned $2,011. Not bad for a fun day at the Event! The Straight Egyptian Futurity Yearling Fillies competition was full of exceptional contenders. Bella Mazin (Bellagio RCA x Thee Lotus Mazin), owned by Wendy Roberts, won the championship for Yearling Fillies from January to April. TF Shaambalah (Botswana x Shaamis Amira), owned by Allison Mehta, won the championship for Yearling Fillies from April to December. In the Straight Egyptian Futurity Yearling Colts competition, Amirs Crescendo (Imperial Amir Kamar x Rhapsodys Crescendaa), owned by Timothy Manring, won the championship for Yearling Colts from January to April, and Ibn Raed (Scapa x LPS Thunderstruck), owned by Elizabeth Witt, won the championship for Yearling Colts from April to December. Payouts for these Futurity classes totaled more than $69,000. What is it about the Egyptian Arabian horse that inspires people to create an event just to celebrate it? The rareness of Egyptian bloodlines and the inherent beauty of these horses make them some of the most cherished creatures on earth. One of the most fascinating facts about the straight Egyptian horses of today is that although they trace back to Egypt and the desert, most contemporary horses represent generations of breeding programs from around the world. Breeders from Hungary, Germany, and the United States, have some of the oldest and most influential programs found outside of Egypt. Over the past quarter century, many nations— especially those of the Middle East, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Dubai and others—have reclaimed their cultural legacy and established important and successful straight Egyptian breeding programs. Their efforts have produced some of the most significant and influential straight Egyptian and Egyptian-related Arabian

horses in the history of the breed. This year at the Event, Al Shaqab, a member of the Qatar Foundation, had numerous class winners and champions at the show, including the Gold Champion Senior Stallion, Hadban Al Shaqab, leased by Rancho Bulakeyno and shown by Greg Gallún. Al Shaqab also owns the Gold Champion Senior Mare, Hooria Al Shaqab; the Gold Champion Junior Colt, Ghasham Al Shaqab; and the Gold Junior Champion Filly, Layali Al Shaqab, all presented by Michael Byatt. The Pyramid Society works diligently to make the Egyptian Event a family-friendly affair with the goal of creating opportunities for families to grow together and share the valuable benefits the Arabian horse has to offer. This year’s Event was no exception, as strong bonds were readily seen among many families who came to

Nazeer bronze topped the Friday evening Gala Art Auction, bringing $20,000. In total, the 2012 Art Auction brought in more than $93,000. A generous atmosphere is the hallmark of the Egyptian Event. The Pyramid Society Officers, Board Members, trustees, and show organizers have worked for years to achieve this special ambiance, but it is also the members—the people who participate at the show—who generate the positive energy and who offer the warm welcome to visitors who make the Event such a special experience. Talaria Farms, home of Leading Egyptian Sire Botswana, assisted in hosting one of the highlights of the Event, Sylvia Zerbini’s Grand Liberté Performance. Sylvia was the star of the wildly acclaimed equestrian spectacle Cavalia from 2008 to 2011. Her performance directing nine Arabian horses in synchronized movements choreographed to music was mesmerizing. Numbers of long time Arabian horse trainers exclaimed incredulously, “How does she do that?” Talaria Farms was a sponsor and assisted in securing the additional sponsors from around the world for the performance, which was free to the public. The stadium appeared to be packed, with standing room only.

compete. Gary and Holly McDonald, their son Kenny, and their clients showed horses at this year’s Event, as did Jerel Kerby and his sons Alex and Jered, of Dogwood Springs Arabians. Performance trainer Tommy Garland and his talented daughter Katie were a hard-working team that earned numerous championships throughout the week. And there were plenty of husband-and-wife partnerships, such as Ted and Brandi Carson, Mike and Perry Wilson, and Rory and Suzanne O’Neill.

Additional fundraising efforts at the Event included the Khan el Khalili Bazar silent auction, which offers a wide array of art, fine works by gifted artisans, professional services and more. It’s a mad dash when bidding closes to see who can sneak in the winning bid at the last moment. All of the items in the Khan el Khalili Bazar silent auction are generously donated and all of the funds raised go to benefit the Pyramid Society, to ensure that it will be able to continue its educational and promotional efforts. The key to the success with these fundraising efforts is the generous support of the patrons, artists, donors, and, of course, the bidders.

It’s always fun to go to the Event because you know you’re going to see some old friends and probably make some new ones. Whether you are small horse breeders from Michigan or large breeders in the international spotlight, everyone is welcome at the Egyptian Event. That’s the beauty of the Arabian horse—it brings people together.

QUOTES:

“Our love of the Egyptian Arabian is the thread that ties us all together. Even though we compete with each other in various ways, we have been able to set aside our personal agendas and come together to achieve our common goal to promote the Egyptian horse.” —Henry Metz, Pyramid Society President “The tremendous dedication and unwavering support from our sponsors, the exhibitors, the members, the staff and volunteers, the attendees, and, of course, the incredible horses themselves, make this a show which is often emulated, but never duplicated.” —Anna Bishop, Pyramid Society Executive Director Futurity Finals Egyptian Sired Yearling Colt winner TF AFRIKHAN LIGHT (Botswana x TF Kestrelia), shown by Michael Wilson for owner Curtis Westley.

“I found the show quite interesting because it gives the same emphasis to the amateurs, owners, exhibitors and also the professional trainers, which provides a great overall atmosphere. I also liked the program of seminars and clinics during the week because I think that’s missing in the world today. It is an excellent way to get new fans to the Arabian breed.” —Luiz Rocco, Brazil, international judge and breeder “The thing I like best about the Event is that for the vast majority of the people who compete at the show, it is about more than winning another ribbon. They are there to showcase their horses to other breeders. They want to see what is working for other programs and to learn how they can improve their horses.” —Gary McDonald, McDonald Arabians, Scottsdale, Ariz.

“The Event is a show that our children love to attend because it is such a family friendly environment. At this show, I feel confident in letting my children go off and explore new things. I know that no matter where they go, they are always in good hands, helping and learning from everyone there.” —Holly McDonald, McDonald Arabians, Scottsdale, Ariz. “I think the key to the Pyramid Society Board’s success is the fact they approach the challenges of promoting and marketing the Egyptian Arabian from a breeder’s perspective. You must be an active breeder to be a member of this board, and as such, they understand and appreciate the importance of creating a venue to promote our horses. As a result, the Egyptian Arabian is enjoying great popularity. While many shows are experiencing a decline in numbers, the Event numbers are strong.” —Allison Mehta, Talaria Farms, Newnan, Ga., Pyramid Society Board of Directors, Public Relations and Marketing Chairman and Kalkata Stakes Chairman. “The camaraderie of the breeders is the thing that really makes the Event special. It is one show that never disappoints us—and it’s a show we never miss. As long as we have Egyptian horses, you’ll see us at the Event!” —Gary Kenworthy, Paradise Arabians, LaFayette, Ga.

“We are small breeders of straight Egyptian Arabians and we like it that way. For us, the Event has been and always will be our most important show of the year.” —Matt Bergren, Bergren Family Arabians, Muskegon, Mich. “We love the Egyptian Event! This year we brought 13 horses to the show, and all were straight Egyptian. It’s a lot of work taking that many horses to a show, but we wouldn’t miss the Event for anything.

“I think our industry would be light years ahead if we followed the Egyptian community’s examples of outreach, education and commitment to the Arabian horse.” —Greg Knowles, Arabian Expressions, Scottsdale, Ariz. “The Egyptian Event is the number one venue for our clients to gather and to showcase their world-class horses. We brought 25 horses to show at the Event this year. Thanks to the great job by Greg Knowles, Frank Spönle and our own Luis Paniagua, every one of our horses earned a top ten award or better at the show. It was an another unforgettable Event!” —Shawn Crews, Arabians Ltd., Waco, Texas

“Receiving the Pyramid Society Trustee’s Award was so special. I have such a great amount of respect for the extraordinary people who contribute so much to the Pyramid Society, the Egyptian Arabian horse and breeders all around the world. Their efforts benefit all of us and are very much appreciated!” —Judy Sirbasku, Arabians Ltd., Waco, Texas “The Event offers many avenues to expand people’s participation with the Egyptian Arabian beyond the traditional means of show competition. One of the nicest things about the Event is the fact that we all share a common bond—which is our love of the Egyptian Arabian horse. It is a chance to meet friends from all over the world and to see horses from other breeding programs. Hopefully, with this insight, we can learn to be better breeders.” —Becky Rogers, Kehilan Arabians, Fort Worth, Texas “The most significant awards for me personally were the top ten awards won by my sons, Alex and Jered, in the Amateur Halter Egyptian Fillies/Mares Novice Handler class. Both fillies were bred, owned and shown by our farm. As a father, spending time with my sons and watching them present the horses so well meant more to me than any trophy or ribbon.” —Jerel Kerby, Dogwood Springs Arabians, Daingerfield, Texas “There isn’t another show like it in the world. Our goal was to come to the Event compete, participate, learn, grow, and hopefully

contribute in a positive way. We brought 16 horses to the show, and we were very proud of them—they looked great and performed well. Each Event is a learning and sharing experience.

“Even though this was the 32nd year for the Event, I think it’s just beginning. Everybody wants to be at the Event and it’s becoming the most important breeders’ show in the world—not just for breeders of straight Egyptian horses, but all Arabian horse breeders, here in the states and around the world. I travel a lot. I see what breeders are producing and know what they would like to have. In my opinion, many of the best horses in Europe and the Middle East have come from American breeding programs. Everyone wants extreme beauty, type, and quality. In order to get that, they will need Egyptian Arabian horses and if they want to see the best—well, they will have to come to the Egyptian Event.” — Raymond Mazzei, Furioso Farm, Temecula, Calif. “I love the Event. To me, it’s on the same level as Scottsdale, the Breeders World Cup and the European shows I’ve attended. This was the fourth year I’ve attended the Event, but the first time I brought horses to show. I took four horses to the show, hoping for a respectable showing, so I was very happy with the results (a silver championship, two championships, a reserve championship and a top ten). For me, the Event is the perfect place to show my horses and meet other breeders with Egyptian horses.” —Manny Vierra, Valley Oak Arabians, Brentwood, Calif.

Native Costume Open winner JADOUBE IBN LAHAB DMF (Al Lahab x HMT Sylvanna), ridden by Amy Spiker for owner Debra Geiser.

“The best things about the Egyptian Event are the horses, the people and the friendships we have developed over the years. It was very rewarding to see young, new breeders at the show this year. It’s reassuring to know that the Event, and all we accomplished with the horses, will have a positive impact on the next generation.” —Christie Metz, Silver Maple Farm, Santa Ynez, Calif., California and Pyramid Society Board of Directors Secretary, Trustee, and President of the Pyramid Society Foundation Board “It was an honor to be invited to sponsor the 2012 Egyptian Event. We believe the show and the activities surrounding the Event are very important to the preservation and promotion of these unique bloodlines.” —Al Shaqab Stud, Member Qatar Foundation, Doha, Qatar

GettinG to Know the Breeders Larry Jerome

Genotype vs. phenotype: which do you rely on most when planning a breeding?

Whose advice do you seek when making breeding decisions?

I think it’s somewhat difficult to differentiate between the two because if you try to rely 100 percent on each of them, you’re not going to accomplish anything. Sometimes people will keep a mare around because it’s the full sister to a famous stallion or something like that, and they think that alone is going to be their salvation, but more importantly, the look of the horse has to fit. Not always do we have horses of superior phenotype that produce great babies; it’s been proven many times that national champion mares don’t always produce national champion babies. From that standpoint, the genotype is very important, but if you’re looking at serious faults in a horse, those still have to be discredited. Ultimately, I think it really just comes down to a balance between them.

I am certainly out there looking and asking questions to those people who are going to help me make my decision, but ultimately, I make my own decisions. There are certainly breeders’ opinions that I respect around the country, and I consult with other family members who are a part the breeding, but 99 percent of the time, it’s my decision.

When breeding horses, how does form to function fit into your decisions? Which is most important to you? I’m very into the total horse—meaning that it must be beautiful, but it must also be athletic. I think we get ourselves disillusioned when we start to think that halter horses can’t be performance horses and vice versa. I think that in this industry, as someone who enjoys all of those arenas, I want a horse that is going to be very beautiful, but still athletic. A lot of times, horses have a career early in their life as a halter horse, but then what do you do with them if they don’t fit into that top one or two slot in the halter world? My total horse has to have a use, and that use comes from their athletic ability, a sound mind, and whether or not the horse is going to be a good family member.

112 | A r A BI A N Hor Se T I MeS

How prominently does the international marketplace figure in your breeding decisions? I’ve always been cognizant of the international market because we sold a horse to Brazil as early as 1984. A lot of our great stallions—horses that influenced this market—are still part of the breeding history and have really made it a global breeding program today. And there again, in the international market, I think you’re trying to breed the “total horse,” and I’m very fascinated and interested in this world market. I want horses that fit that type of mold and will be of interest to that part of the population as well. I think if the international market is looking for any one thing in particular, they’re looking for a very beautiful horse—a horse with a lot of type. This international influence on breeding is definitely a big part of our breed, but I’m not going to make a decision based on breeding performance horses vs. breeding a horse to fit the standard of the international market.


If you had your choice of any Arabian mare in the past 100 years to use in your breeding program, who would it be? I would probably have to say VP Kahlua. She was a truly gorgeous mare.

If you had your choice of any Arabian stallion in the past 100 years to use in your breeding program, who would it be? *Aramus would be my choice of stallion that I would most want to use. He was a horse that was way ahead of his time, a dual-titled national champion stallion, and he was extremely beautiful. He would be my ultimate halter horse stallion.

In your opinion, what stallion or mare that is no longer living had the most overall influence on the Arabian breed? Probably *Bask. He’s multifaceted into a lot of different areas of the breed, and although he had a great impact on the breeding in the halter world, I don’t know if he’s the greatest halter producer in the world. But he certainly set the stage for all of the great performance horses of the world.

Where do you see the Arabian horse industry in five years as it pertains to breeding?

industry, but if we don’t do those things, I think that we’re going to continue to see declining numbers.

When not breeding Arabian horses, what are your favorite pastimes? Dogs, horses, cows, kids, music, and of course, my wife and my family. n

I think we’re becoming more and more type-conscious all the time, but I also think that the demand is focusing on the fact that the Arabian horse has to be a total horse—it has to have the type and also the athletic ability to be able to perform. If we keep these things in consideration, I think that it’s going to be helpful to us and it’s going to encourage new families and new people to take an active role in the Arabian industry. It is our job to try to provide these people with the horses that help them achieve their goals. It’s always easy for us to portray what we conceive to be important, but it’s also important to listen to the person who’s buying the horse and what they want to use it for. If we do all these things, I think we can grow the

Reversing

Trend

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


F

or years, first in whispers and then in shouts, the news circulated in the Arabian horse community that registrations were down. Down, and then more down. Seriously down—a disturbing trend that showed little sign of abating. Perhaps as unsettling was the realization that some of that bad news related not just to Arabians. With the uncertain economy and a generation of children plugged into electronic devices rather than riding horses, all breeds are challenged when it comes to adding newcomers to their ranks. The question is, what can be done? So, Arabian Horse Times opened conversations with some of the top horsemen in the breed, and beginning this issue, will include their observations and thoughts for the future. The idea of “a downward trend in registrations” is, in many ways, doublespeak for “How do we grow this breed in the future?” It is not just that people are not breeding horses; the fact is that they are not breeding because they are not finding a market. The real question is, then, how do we create a better market? How do we bring more people into the Arabian breed so that there is substantial demand for Arabian horses? And what can AHA do to help make that happen? It will not be easy, they all say. The first step is to identify what has been done wrong—and then the floor is open for suggestions on what can be done right.

ReveRsing The TRend

Reversing The Trend GreG Knowles Arabian Expressions Scottsdale, Ariz. it’s been a perfect storm, and to reverse the trend, i think everybody has to stand up and take responsibility. 1. i’m a trainer, and i know this is controversial, but i think too many trainers take too many horses without results. They tell the clients, “We can take your horse in training, we can sell it, we need to go to horse shows.” Trainers need to realize that yes, they have to make a living, but they cannot fleece the client. They can’t mislead the client. if you honestly see a horse you believe in and you think it’s a great horse, okay. but, you can’t mislead these people, and they’ve been misled by some for a long time. That has to stop, first and foremost. 2. secondly, shame on owners and breeders who did not breed responsibly. You need to be educated enough to know how to breed your horses. Too many owners bred horses that weren’t saleable, that people didn’t want. many bred horses because people promoted that “this was the hot horse.” in contrast, the brazilians, for example, are very good breeders because they think about it. They don’t run to the hot horse or the hot market of the week. They do what works for their program, they get educated, they learn how to breed horses. We like to tell our clients, “it’s in your best interest to get as educated as you can, because nobody can serve your best interests better than yourself.” 3. We need to get rid of transported semen; it stifles the marketplace. it kills the growth of young stallions so that in the last 15 years, farms all over the country

with fine stallions have not had a chance to grow and prosper. When *bask was king, and his sons negatraz, Tornado and Gdansk were in the northwest, we’d send our mare to *bask and then when she came home, we’d send her, with her foal at side, to Tornado or negatraz or Gdansk. instead of our just going back to *bask, one of those young stallions got an opportunity to breed, and in time, all three became great stallions. Today stallions like that, not well known but with the potential to be great, are just promotion for an existing stallion. That does nothing for growth.

At the same time that transported semen has hurt young stallions and the people who own them, often putting those small stallion owners out of business, it has deprived communities of breeding farms and the people in those communities from having the

That is a loss of promotion for us all. We also need to get rid of the scoring system. In my Let me add that when I say we need to get rid of opinion, there aren’t enough judges who are qualified transported semen, I do realize that it has some to judge a halter class using that system.

ReveRsing The TRend have educational seminars and introduce people to the Arabian horse. We are going to start doing that this fall at my farm in scottsdale. We will talk about the love, joy and the excitement of the Arabian horse. We will teach them that this is an animal and if you love it and want to be part of it, then that’s what you should do. it is not an investment; it is a lifestyle and a choice. The shows, too, should fit the lifestyle. instead of events that start at 7:30 a.m. monday through Friday, have shows that are two days long, on the weekend, and that start at 10 a.m. and are done by 5 or 6 p.m. Have some social time—this is a wonderful lifestyle! Hold the show at someplace like santa barbara, overlooking the ocean, or in scottsdale on the polo grounds. Let these people enjoy the lifestyle. We made a lot of mistakes, and i don’t think there is a quick fix. We have to start all over again and tell everybody how much we love this horse and this lifestyle. When we reintroduce the Arabian horse this time, we need to do it in a way that makes sense for everybody.

being proactive doesn’t have to be on a grand scale. it doesn’t mean bringing in 30 or 40 4-H kids. it may be just word-of-mouth and bringing in your friends to enjoy your horses, or promoting it to your local rotary or trail riding friends. most people are engaged in their community in one way or another, and we have a tendency not to think of those people as potential customers, but they are.

–Kathie Hart

Kathie hart Vallejo III Ranch LLC Afton, Okla. When it comes to thinking about what our association can do to reverse the downward trend in registrations, i think we need to remember that we are our association. We can’t put the blame onto somebody else. i think more people need to get involved and have input to fulfill some of the wishes our membership has; it comes down to us being responsible for our own actions. We have to create the market that warrants breeding. more breeding and training facilities need to be more proactive in bringing in introductory-level people. There have been some farms that have done that very well, with day camps, weekend camps, academy programs, things like that. For the show segment of AHA, we have to bring more people in at that level and let them work their way through the system to find what they think is appropriate for their children or their family unit.

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

We also have to keep reaching out to the folks that are interested in trail riding, endurance riding and that kind of activity. We have put our hand out to them periodically, but we need to not forget about them. We forget that AHA is a breed association, not a horse show association. That gets convoluted because so much


ReveRsing The TRend of its revenue is directly related to the show industry. The show industry is a very small percentage of the industry in terms of numbers, but it carries a major part of the financial burden, and we have been moving more and more toward showing being the primary focus of AHA. AHA has become focused on its four national shows because that is where the revenue is coming from, but that future is pretty predictable; we have seen what has happened to the Hackneys and the Saddlebreds. They catered to the upper end show folks, and that is not very deep. So we have to understand the financial situation, but remember to fight for the people who are doing all the other activities, because we’re all in this together for the future of our breed. Our Nationals exhibitors are also feeling the financial crunch of today’s economy, and the high cost of competing at our national shows is causing people to rethink the amount that they show. Some are cutting back on the number of regionals they typically have shown in the past, and even choosing between Nationals and Scottsdale. You can’t force the exhibitors to spend money that they have not budgeted. We also have to market to the people who are already in the equine industry. Coming out of Youth Nationals, something that came to mind for me was that the quality of the horses that are competing is exceptional and the kids’ level of riding has improved tremendously. I can remember going to Youth Nationals years ago and seeing so many kids over-mounted. This year, those kids were on very, very nice horses and they were flat riding those horses—they weren’t just being passengers. Those are great things that we need to publicize to the other equine disciplines. We can send out e-mail blasts if we can get on lists that get out of our own network, or do articles that appear in all-breed periodicals. We have a good product; we just don’t let other people know about it. AHA could use this as part of its marketing and development segment, and individuals who are good at writing can put articles in their local magazines and newspapers. Marketing to people in other breeds means we don’t have to start them from the ground up. They already are involved in horses. They just need to know how good our Arabian horse is and become involved with it.

Shea Stables St. Clair, Mich. Tim Shea. I can understand why people are concerned about declining registrations, but at the same time, there is little demand for the horses that are out there right now. People are just selling horses like crazy. To be honest, if they don’t breed for a while, I think that’s what needs to happen. If you look at the Arabian business, you can see that it couldn’t sustain itself as it was because it brought everybody in as a breeder, so we had all these producers and no consumers. Over the last 15 or so years, we’ve finally got all age groups of adults riding and showing, but we need a lot more of them. We have lost so many people—it has to be built up from scratch. One way to create demand, and what I see beginning to happen, is that a lot of barns have started riding lesson programs. They are bringing in new people, and I think that’s the biggest thing. That is what fuels the hunter/jumper and Saddlebred industries. Historically, Arabians have not had to do that, but we do now.

The location of our national show should be a draw for exhibitors and spectators by taking advantage of upbeat areas that attract visitors, so that our breed can benefit from the traffic and potentially introduce new people to the breed. We need to be friendly on all levels by supporting local shows and making our regional and nationals shows the best they can be. If it’s not fun … if it’s not rewarding … it will continue to decline. We don’t have to accept that. At Stachowski Farm we work hard to help our clients succeed.

Breeding, owning, and showing an Arabian horse is expensive, and unless it’s fun, people are not going to do it.

Arabian Horse Celebration

September 19-22, 2012 by Linda White

Returning To Freedom Hall Arabians are coming back to Freedom Hall! The inaugural Arabian Horse Celebration is about to open its doors, and the excitement is building. Arabian horse breeders, trainers, exhibitors and people everywhere who just plain love Arabian horses can barely contain their enthusiasm. From 1976 through 2006, the U.S. National Championship Show was held in Freedom Hall, which is, for horse people, a place like no other. The Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center’s huge coliseum sings out with memories of fabulous horses, people, and events.st “Riding down that ramp in Freedom Hall is the most thrilling experience in the world,” says trainer Bob Battaglia, who knows. He has made the trip many times. “Louisville is such a great place to have a horse show: the sky boxes, the stalls so close to the action, the shopping expo, the wonderful restaurants and all the things to see and do beyond the horse show make coming back to Louisville an exciting prospect. We are bringing all kinds of Arabian horse people together; a new group of people has also become involved. “Our mission with the Arabian Horse Celebration is to promote the Arabian horse in a new light, and to share the richness the Arabian horse has brought to our lives. I think that has been one of the most gratifying aspects of putting this show together.” The Arabian Horse Celebration is AHA and USEF sanctioned. “A horse show should never be all work and no play,” Battaglia adds. “We want to share the fun and satisfaction of being involved with the Arabian horse. We’ll have a Starting Gate Party at Churchill Downs on Tuesday, September 18, the evening before the show begins. Churchill Downs is probably Louisville’s most famous landmark, but all too often, when the show was here 126 | Ar abian Horse Times


before, many of us never got off the fairgrounds to explore the city itself. Churchill Downs will be a new adventure for many Arabian people. The Arabian Horse Celebration will also be a great venue for learning more about these horses.” Kelly Charpentier agrees. “Educating people about the Arabian horse is a high priority for everyone involved with this show.” No classes are scheduled Thursday and Friday afternoons, which will allow people to take advantage of a full slate of demonstrations and seminars given by some of the Arabian industry’s foremost authorities in various fields. Demonstrations will begin Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m. in Freedom Hall. Scott Benjamin will explore some of the disciplines associated with the Arabian horse, its origin and uses. Following Benjamin will be Michael Byatt, who will discuss conformation and judging. At 3 p.m. Vicki Humphrey and Chris Culbreth will present an English and western seminar and demonstration that explores the two disciplines’ similarities and differences. A question-andanswer session with the panel of four speakers will conclude Thursday afternoon’s schedule. Friday afternoon’s educational offerings also will begin at 1 p.m. in Freedom Hall. Bob Battaglia will lead the day’s discussion, and offer insights into setting goals and selecting the right Arabian horse for you. At 2 p.m. Martha Murdock, Kathy Smoke and Lynn Ashby, respectively, will talk about endurance riding, dressage and racing. Stacey Giere will discuss and demonstrate her specialty, carriage driving, at 3 p.m., and a question-and-answer session with Friday’s panel of experts will begin at 4 p.m. Seminars in the commercial exhibits hall will get started on Wednesday at 10 a.m. with Markel Insurance representatives’ discussion of farm safety and tips about your own and your horse’s maintenance. Information about the Arabian Horsemen’s Distress Fund will also be available. At 2 p.m. Laura Harris D.V.M. will discuss “Keeping Them Healthy Costs Less.” On Thursday, Sept. 20, at 10 a.m., a U.S. Equestrian Federation representative will answer the question, “Why Be a Member?” On Friday, also at 10 a.m., in the commercial exhibits hall, photographer Scott Trees will talk about, “Because of

Horses: Lessons Lived, Lessons Learned.” Saturday begins with a 10 a.m. discussion of “Medical Advancements and Technology in Breeding,” by Dr. Mario Zerlotti, a noted equine reproduction specialist. At 2 p.m. Raul J. Bras D.V.M., C.J.F., from Lexington’s Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital, will provide a practical approach to understanding laminitis and rehabilitating the laminitic horse. The Purebred Arabian Trust is sponsoring all the event’s educational offerings. Saturday is filled with seminars, workshops, and youth activities. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. that day, pre-school and elementary school children will meet at Freedom Hall’s front entrance for “Horse Story Time” with a children’s Volume 43, No. 3 | 127


materials, but more importantly, they will take home memories of a spectacular day spent with the Arabian horse. Charpentier recommends an RSVP to Laurie at (480) 5778762 by Monday, Sept. 17. “Other times are available, upon request, for groups of 10 or more,” she adds.

books author. They then will learn how to draw and paint horses in an interactive art lesson with an accomplished artist. Pre-schoolers and grade-schoolers will learn to create and name their very own stick horses, using a variety of materials—and show off their stick horse creations in their very own horse show! Next, kids can join in the fun with demonstrations of horses getting a bath and being groomed, and they can learn how to be safe around horses. An ice cream social follows. From 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. middle- and high-schoolers will gather at Freedom Hall’s front entrance to hear excerpts from and recommendations about teen literature. They will learn artistic techniques from accomplished artists, and create their own masterpieces in various art media, including photography and videography. A demonstration and clinic with an equine veterinary practitioner comes next, followed by a second ice cream social. (Do these Arabian Horse Celebration folks know how to throw a party, or what?) Young people will get to keep their works of art, stick horses and educational 128 | Ar abian Horse Times

Board member Ed Horton is thrilled with the possibilities. “I’m most excited about Louisville’s ambience. This is a chance to revisit what we were, and our Louisville history in years past. There was so much participation; the stands used to be packed with people enjoying the show! My hope is that the Arabian Horse Celebration will start drawing people in, both new people and people who will come back to the Arabian horse.” Celebration Board member Kim Jarvis heads the charities committee. “We have made arrangements with the Jockeys Guild to have jockeys as celebrities at the Starting Gate Party,” she notes enthusiastically. “One of the celebrity jockeys will be Pat Day! “As Bob mentioned, wearing colorful hats has become a ladies’ Kentucky Derby tradition. At Tuesday evening’s party we will be auctioning off a beautiful Derby hat and a oneof-a-kind belt buckle. The one-of-a-kind, handmade hat was donated by international hat designer and Kentucky resident Polly Singer. The custom belt buckle was made by


Lonestar Silversmiths. The auction proceeds will go to our charity, Angel Heart Farm.” Jarvis has been working with a charities specialist to provide the show’s Board of Directors with the information necessary to ally the Celebration with a local charity that gives something back to the Arabian horse community, rather than one of the huge, faceless international charities where donors seldom, if ever, get to see their gifts at work. “Angel Heart Farm was established by Tracy Kujawa, a threetime cancer survivor and Arabian horse owner and exhibitor,” she explains. “That is why the program chose to use Arabian horses to change the lives of chronically ill children. The children cannot control their illnesses, but they can learn to ride a 1,000-pound Arabian horse, which is extremely empowering. And this means that in addition to making a difference in children’s lives, Angel Heart Farm is an ambassador for the Arabian breed. The Lexington, Ky.-based charity has helped grant nearly 150 children’s wishes. “Our biggest challenge is to make the inaugural Arabian Horse Celebration a financial success, while meaningfully supporting our charity. In addition to the money we raise, we will be doing things throughout the show to increase the public’s awareness of Angel Heart Farm.”

Bob Battaglia mentions another important inclusion. “The 1974, 1975 and 1976 Arabian Horse Fairs featured a Stallion Row, but not much has been done in the last 25 years,” he points out. “Well, we are bringing back Stallion Row. There will be stallion presentations at the Stallion Row stalls every day. Evening classes begin at 7 p.m. There will be cocktail parties and Stallion Row stallion presentations in the main ring on Friday and Saturday evenings at 6:30 p.m. We have a prestigious stallion roster because some of the Arabian horse industry’s most successful sires are participating; Terry Holmes is our Stallion Row chairperson.” Stallion Row stabling will be in the Freedom Hall’s North Wing, as will all commercial exhibitors and the Celebration Café. Show entries too will be stabled in the North Wing. Board member Mike Beethe is in charge of scheduling. Classes start at 8 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Sept. 19. The four days’ AATR, AAOTR, ATD, ATR and JTR performance classes for exhibitors under 18, 18 to 35, 36 to 54, and 55 and Over speak to owners’ and exhibitors’ increasingly hands-on participation. Grand championship classes—every one ATR—for purebreds and Half-Arabians in western pleasure, hunter pleasure, country English and English pleasure, pleasure driving and country pleasure driving, begin Saturday morning at 8 a.m. A complete schedule of open stallion, mare, filly and colt or gelding halter classes for Arabians and Half-Arabians of every age will be on tap, as will a full schedule of open and junior horse classes and championships in western pleasure, hunter pleasure, country English and English pleasure, pleasure driving and country pleasure driving. See the Arabian Horse Celebration website, www.arabiancelebration. com, or call (480) 585-0739 for further information. Kentucky is uniquely suited to raising and displaying fine horseflesh, and in Louisville especially, the horse is king. For more than 200 years, horse people have been gathering in the old river city to compete, compare, collaborate, commiserate and celebrate race horses, show horses and personal and professional alliances. The inaugural Arabian Horse Celebration offers Arabian horse fanciers everywhere a unique opportunity to renew their acquaintances, enjoy the quintessential River City, and most of, all, to celebrate the Arabian horse. n Volume 43, No. 3 | 129

Experience a lifestyle, for the time of your life!

Time For Your CLOSE-UP

What is your favorite horse show, and why? It is a close choice between Scottsdale and Youth Nationals, but I would have to say Youth Nationals. Youth Nationals, unlike any other show during the year (except of course, U.S.), completely takes on a life of its own. It exists as this grand moment when the dream that lives within each one of us comes charging to life. (I know, so cliché, but it really is!) It is the culmination of every practice and every show before it. From the feeling of awe riding into Tingley Coliseum to the inevitable Albuquerque lightning and thunder, the entire week is electric. What is your most treasured horse show memory? The small and precious moments that have made all of the bigger memories possible: my mom and I listening to our favorite music in the changing room while she pins the last show bun bobby into place; always having my dad right there next to me in the warm-up; my little sister Holland’s contagious energy; late night and early morning practices with Cynthia; and that addictively exhilarating feeling of trotting into the arena. What is the most memorable show-ring advice you have ever received? I always remember my dad saying, “The only way to swim fast is to swim fast.” Regardless of what you’re doing, success is up to you. Put all excuses aside and just do it. And my mom always whispering, “butterfly,” into my ear before a class: effortless grace. 176 | A R A bI A N HoR Se T I meS


Who is your all-time favorite show horse, and why? Aflair CF and Captain Jack Sparrow PGA have an extra special place in my heart. From the very beginning, “Flair” and “CJ” have been so natural. They love what they do, and it’s completely contagious! Working with young horses and being a part of their learning process has been one of the most rewarding aspects of riding and showing, and I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of “Flair’s” and “CJ’s” lives. What motivates you to show the Arabian horse, and why? Heart, versatility, athleticism, intelligence, and elegance. Riding an Arabian is the most exquisite combination of fine art and sport. What is the most important quality you look for in your show horses? I first look for suitability of the horse to the discipline and, especially in young horses, the physical potential to grow into themselves and excel athletically. That creates the foundation. With the foundation set, the most important quality is heart. A horse with heart is the one that is going to get the most out of an extra tough training day, the one that will eagerly want to learn, and the one that will teach you more than you could ever imagine. At the end of the day, a horse with heart is the one that stands out in the crowd, shines a little brighter, and reminds us just why we fell in love with horses in the first place. How did you become involved with the Arabian horse breed? I was one of those little girls born saying, “horse.” My parents weren’t entirely keen on the idea, but to “encourage” me to do well on my kindergarten interview, they agreed to pony lessons. As the story goes, my mom opened the yellow pages to the equestrian section, closed her eyes, and fatefully put her finger down on an advertisement for Arranaga Arabians. For the following six years, in addition to taking lessons on and off with Kim and Mark Arranaga, I played soccer, tennis, swam, danced, and did gymnastics in what my parents say was an attempt to dissuade me out of my love for horses. But to no avail, they eventually realized that the horse bug couldn’t be shaken. (I think they may have caught a little of it along the way.) Now horses have become a complete family affair! I could not be more proud of my little sister, Holland, and I feel incredibly blessed to have my family’s complete support and involvement. Family is the single most important thing in my life—sharing something that we all love really is the reason that riding and showing is so special to me. Who is the most influential person to you in the Arabian industry, and why? Without question, and a thousand times over, Cynthia Burkman. Cynthia’s talent, work ethic, bravery, and integrity continually inspire me. She holds herself with complete class inside and outside of the industry, behind the scenes and in the spotlight. I am honored to have spent the past six years learning from her, and blessed to call her my friend and family. With all of my love and respect, Cynthia, you are an inspiration to all. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you? One of the biggest highlights of my life was a backpacking trek during my senior year of high school. A Chadwick pregraduation tradition, for three weeks in May 2010, ten of my closest friends and I hiked 106 miles through the Sierra Nevada mountain range. It. Was. Out. Of. This. World. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Following in tHeir Footsteps

Following in Their FooTsTeps …

Vicki Humphrey And Jessica Clinton by Mary Kirkman It was not a foregone conclusion that Jessica Clinton would be a horse trainer. She was her mother’s daughter— which meant not that she would choose horses, but that she might pursue art. Standout trainer Vicki Humphrey, now a fixture in the Arabian show ring, might appear to have been born to the saddle, but the truth is that well into a career that has collected national championships the way some people collect stamps, she entertained the thought of being an artist instead. That “Jesse” grew up in a horse-loving family is old news. Not only is her mother a professional trainer, but her father, Jim Clinton, bred hundreds of Arabians and HalfArabians. Her halfsisters Suzie and Cindy are both involved in the breed, and her older sister Lea is a champion juvenile and amateur rider. Jesse, the youngest, has loved horses all her life, but in the beginning, she couldn’t have cared less about the show ring. “When I was a kid, I really didn’t have much to do with the horses at all, riding-wise,” she recalls. “I just liked handling them and being around them.” While Lea, who is three years older, was rising through the juvenile ranks, Jesse had another agenda. “I would just ride bareback at a dead run through the forest,” she says. If it scared her mother to death, Humphrey never said anything. She’d enjoyed the same sensations when she was a child. But by the time Jesse decided that maybe she’d get interested in

178 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

showing, Lea had first call on the good horses. “She always felt like she was getting leftovers,” Vicki Humphrey recalls. “She got really nice horses, but Lea already had won something big on them. I think it kind of dimmed her interest in the competition, not because she couldn’t compete with Lea, but because something always had come before her.” Jesse agrees with that, but now sees the silver lining in the cloud. “I think as a result of me showing the lesser horses all of the time, I learned a little bit more about the process of actually training instead of just riding a finished show horse,” she observes. Still, it didn’t spark any thought of training as a career. “At Youth Nationals, they do those questionnaires, ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ I remember specifically that one year I wrote ‘not a horse trainer.’” That feeling remained with her for years, as she went to college for fine arts and painting. She continued to ride, and when she aged out of the youth division, she rode as an amateur. Eventually, she found herself training on the side and keeping up a pretty substantial show schedule. “I was trying, really trying, not to be a horse trainer,” she smiles. “But you know what, I think it was really inevitable.” In fact, it happened gradually, but Humphrey remembers a turning point. “It was a funny transformation for her,” she says. “It took Lea going off to school. When that

Following in tHeir Footsteps happened, Jesse started getting new horses, fresh horses to ride. And that’s when I saw the difference in her, that she started wanting to do it herself and train them herself instead of saying, ‘Mom fix this, Mom do this.’ She started to say, ‘I think I can get this figured out.’ “Never, never had she talked about wanting to train horses,” Humphrey adds. “She was going to school. She was an art major.” Jesse was 22 when she made the commitment to train horses full-time, and her reasoning was clear. “I find that with anything, I’m a super competitive person,” she says. “I realized that I just couldn’t give up the horses; that wasn’t an option. I couldn’t be as good or as dedicated about my artwork as I wanted to be, and so I’d just rather not do it at all than do it halfway.” Even so, again like her mother, she hasn’t wholly given up on the idea of her art. “It would be nice to do that later,” she admits. Sometime. Her move from very good amateur to trainer was eased by her prior experience developing horses part-time as an amateur. The transition appeared seamless, as she and her mother added professional relationship to their mother/daughter dynamic. “Anybody that’s around a lot can tell you that we definitely get into it,” Jesse grins. “I mean, I ask for help and we disagree and we fight and bicker, but we’re all good at the end of the day. My mom is the best person about never holding a grudge. She could be ready to kill me, and then five minutes later she’s over it and completely forgotten about it and moved on. “We get along really good,” she says again, and then adds casually, “but it’s kind of funny. [Around the barn] we actually have a code word for my mother. It’s HRH, Her Royal Highness.” She gets serious again. Growing up in a trainer’s family, she had a clear view of the job’s reality before she ever chose it for herself. “I found out at a very early age that training horses has very little to do with training horses, and so much is being—well, being everything to your

clients. People pay a lot of money to do this hobby that is our industry, and they expect a lot in return.”

180 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


Vicki HumpHrey And JessicA clinton She had to accept that working with humans is as much a part of running a barn as working with horses is. And that, she concedes, may have been part of the reason she resisted becoming a professional for several years; she loved training horses, but working with humans was a different prospect. In the end, she just followed her mother’s lead. “As I grew up and matured, I realized I had to handle it,” she says. “I am a very realistic person; I knew exactly what I was getting myself into, becoming a trainer. Now I appreciate every part of it, and my Mom—she’s just awesome. She’s always there for everybody. I learned a lot about dealing with people from her.” Humphrey remembers her own emotions when Jesse decided that she wanted to be a trainer. “I was like, no way. I wouldn’t wish that on anybody—no, you don’t—please finish school. I said, ‘I’ll hire you if you finish school. But, you’ve got to have something to fall back on, because this isn’t a forever job. This is until your body hurts.’ “Jesse was always the curl-up-and-read kid; she didn’t play sports in school,” she continues parenthetically. “Lea was on the track team, and Jesse was ‘you’ve got to be kidding me.’ This is a physically challenging job for anybody—certainly for women—and Jesse’s kind of teeny-tiny. So, I’m saying, ‘You don’t want to manhandle horses for the rest of your life. Go get a high-paying job and then you can afford to pay whoever you want to train your horses.’ But she absolutely has a connection with horses like nobody else I’ve ever known. I’m lucky enough to have the best trainer I could hire—there isn’t a better one out there. She’s so connected to the horses; she’s quiet, and she gets it done and it’s pretty amazing.”

Did it feel good, though, having her daughter follow in her footsteps? “Absolutely,” she says. “That’s when I started to say things like, ‘Oh, this is a terrible idea, it’s a wonderful idea.’ Because it’s so fun to work together, and so fun to have family around. I love it.” Humphrey laughs at their training relationship now. “Every once in a while she’ll say, ‘help me with this horse,’ or ‘what would you do?’ or ‘what would you change?’ But she’s very independent. Every once in awhile, when I’m done with my list and she’s not done with all of her horses, I’ll say, ‘I’ll work that horse for you,’ and she’ll say, ‘Don’t mess it up, Mom.’ She’s gained a great deal of confidence.” The confidence is built not only on experience, but on success. Despite the fact that she was late to the party in getting serious about competition, Jesse put together an impressive resumé of national wins, starting in walk/ trot and moving on to equitation and adult titles in English pleasure, park and native costume. (She is a seven-time national champion in costume.) She also accounted for the Platinum Performance High Point Award with Bey Berry Love, with its $5,000 check. And in her first season as a pro, she came home with two national championships and four top tens, and coached her riders to two national reserve championships and a host of top tens. Since then, the titles have multiplied. One, however, stands out in her mind and always will be special: her last national championship as an amateur, in 2007. She had selected, purchased and trained the horse—the 5-year-old Half-Arabian mare, Excels High Fashion—herself. The pair took on all comers in the U.S.

Following in tHeir Footsteps Looking at what other trainers’ kids have faced when they moved straight from juvenile competition to professional, she ref lects that there again, taking longer to do that probably made it easier for her. “I had a few amateur years in there,” she points out. But being second trainer in the barn to one of the most successful performance trainers in the industry presents its own set of challenges, or at least it did at first. “Sometimes people say, ‘Well, I know you’re training my horse, Jessica, but I’d like your mom to show this one because of her name,’” she says. “Which is, sadly, true some of the time. The first couple of years I trained, it was kind of like that.” She shrugs. She gets it; it’s a fact of life. “I didn’t really have a name for myself yet. But I think I’m starting to grow out of that a little bit. I have a great—really great—group of clients that put a lot of trust in me and let me show their horses.”

National Championship Park AAOTR, and if ever there was an indicator that Jessica Clinton was ready to be a professional, that was it. The achievement remains not only a milestone for her, but also is one of her mother’s favorite memories (along with Lea’s unanimous national championship in equitation). Last February, she was awarded APAHA’s Rising Star Award for 2011. It is fair to ask if, as a juvenile, amateur or professional, she ever felt extra pressure as the child of a trainer. Overall, she says, not much. Yes, some—but not what one might think, that she was expected to perform to a higher standard. “As a youth rider, it was probably the worst, showing equitation with kids in the barn that showed equitation,” she recalls. “It was like a ‘that’s not fair’ kind of thing—and it was predominately mothers more than kids. The kids and I got along fine, but there was always tension from the other mothers and that used to stress me out a little bit. As an amateur, it was fine. I don’t remember feeling like any extra pressure, besides the pressure I put on myself.”

An example of that came at last year’s U.S. Nationals, when Jacques LaPointe and Candace Avery entrusted her with their 4-year-old mare Princess Of Baske in the country English pleasure junior class. It was an effective match; Princess Of Baske, with Jessica Clinton up, was named unanimous champion. “It was a pretty awesome feeling,” Jesse remembers. “I finally got to do it and prove myself. I never get my expectations up because it is so easy to be disappointed, but I really wanted it, and when it all came together, the stars aligned and it was a pretty amazing feeling.” Any evaluation of the show has to show that Jessica Clinton’s career is progressing nicely. Sure, her mother was in the saddle for the barn’s big guns, Mandalay Bay (a fourth consecutive U.S. National Park Championship) and Bonfire ROF (U.S. National Champion in Country English Pleasure), last year at Nationals. But Clinton was on board for Princess Of Baske, and nabbed U.S. National Reserve Championships in Native Costume (HL Sanction) and the Country English Pleasure


Vicki HumpHrey And JessicA clinton Futurity (Tempani), along with a top ten in the HalfArabian English Futurity (Afire Siren). So, when regarding her career, what does she want for the future? “Every day I feel like I get better, and that’s what I want,” she says. “I never want to think that I’m there. I want to be working towards a goal of just always

continuing to reinvent and get better and be the best. I’m so competitive—I don’t like to lose.” She struggles to find the words. “I’m not ‘not humble.’ I’m not blind, but I’m super competitive.” Her mother is a little more specific. “Other than the year that I worked for Onyx, I have always had a public training barn,” Humphrey says. “I want Jesse to have a secure world where she’s not moving from barn to barn, like so many trainers have to do. They get a great setup, and then they go out of business and they have to move, and they have to uproot their children. I don’t want that life for her. So, the fact that she can work for me forever is exactly why I set it up this way for myself; I didn’t want to move my kids around.”

The stability comes with drawbacks, she concedes. “There are struggles that you go through, owning your own business and not having near the salary most of the time that you would have if someone were to pay you. And having to do all the work, all the business side of it.” She focuses on countering the weak spots. “[When you’re on your own], you’re not locked into somebody’s breeding program,” she says. “You’re training everything that comes along that you can make a living doing. So, I’ve been working hard lately with the clients we have that are breeding, and getting them geared in the right direction so that the foals they have that are coming up can be—hopefully—superstars for

Jesse. And then, also, I have my own breeding that I’m doing, so that there are always going to be horses coming along that are planned ahead, so we don’t have to pull them out of the woodwork. That makes the trainer’s life much easier.”

186 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

She laughs. Of course, Jesse’s presence in the barn offers an opportunity for her to slow down, to take more time off, to relax more. “I’m sure I will at some point,” she nods. “But it’s way out there. I thought it would be sooner, but I think, because Jesse’s here, I take more breaks and more vacations.”


Vicki HumpHrey And JessicA clinton

Although retirement is still slated for some time down the years from now, that does not mean that Humphrey’s focus will remain the same now that her daughter is on staff. “I really like kids, you know,” she says. “If I never showed again, I would not miss it for a minute, but I really like putting the kids in the ring. That’s what I’d rather do than be training a horse. So it works great for Jesse.” If Jesse feels the weight of that responsibility, she doesn’t show it. Her mother has been a good role model all along, she figures; there’s no reason to change that estimation now. Trying to quantify what she has learned from

Humphrey in addition to horsemanship, she points to attitude and perspective. “She’s so laid back,” she says. “And she’s not a super emotional person. You work so hard for one moment in the show ring, and then it’s over, and it’s like, ‘okay, let’s work another year to do it again.’ It is just a moment. What I’ve learned from her is that it’s not necessarily the ribbon. It’s more than that.” That’s not to discount the value of a win or a good show, she emphasizes. She is just seeing beyond it. “Since I was a kid, this farm has been like a family,” she says. “I know that’s super corny to say, but we get involved with the clients’ lives and their kids’ lives. That’s important.” n

The 2012

Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders

Fall Festival by Beth Ellen Hunziker

As summer winds down and we enjoy the dog days of August, we know it will be only weeks before the September air turns crisp and we will all be heading for the Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders Fall Festival. The dates for the 2012 MAHB Medallion Stallion Auction and Performance Futurities are September 28-30. Make plans to arrive early and stay late, because you will not want to miss a minute of the festivities Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders, Inc. has planned for this weekend! 8 • MN Breeders | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes


With more than 30 years of experience, the MAHB knows how to throw a party. The Medallion Stallion Futurity was the first of its kind in the country. It is the longest running futurity and the model for pretty much every other successful breeders futurity in the industry. The format of the MAHB is often imitated but never duplicated because the members of this club are innovators. They are constantly looking for ways to improve the event and the unique perspective of their members makes the Minnesota Medallion Stallion Futurity different and—many people say—better than any other futurity program available.

Greg Brown, President of the MAHB, shared his excitement about this year’s activities. “We are looking forward to a great show this year. The yearling classes here are some of the most anticipated classes of the year. The competition is always deep. The horses competing here are offspring of many of the top sires in the world. The payouts are some of the biggest in the country, which means it’s the best opportunity for the biggest return for the breeders and owners of these young horses. “Of course, the huge payouts in the auction futurities are only possible through the success of the Medallion Stallion Service Auction. The foals competing in this year’s 2012 MAHB Auction Futurity classes are the result

Volume 43, No. 3 | MN Breeders • 9

of breedings purchased at the 2009 Medallion Stallion Service Auction. The 2012 Auction Futurity Champion Yearling Filly and Colt will each take home checks for over $17,000, and each of the Auction Futurity Reserve Champion Yearling Filly and Colt will take home checks of over $9,800. MAHB pays out to 10th place, so all top ten horses in these classes will take home a significant paycheck for their owners. This is a very select group of yearlings, because only the foals resulting from the MAHB Medallion Stallion Service Auction are eligible to compete for these large purses. “In addition to the excitement of the Auction Futurity classes, the Yearling Medallion Stallion Futurity classes are usually even bigger than the auction classes because all nominated yearling fillies and colts sired by a Medallion Stallion are eligible to compete in these classes. The number of entries is usually quite high—but the quality is even higher. It is amazing to see the number of yearling fillies and colts who have won at the MAHB Fall Fest that have gone on to win national championship titles. That’s how good the quality of the horses is at our show! “The 2012 Medallion Stallion Futurity Champion Yearling Filly and Colt each will take home checks for over $9,000. Each of the Medallion Stallion Futurity Reserve Champion Yearling Filly and Colt will take home checks of over $4,500. We pay out to fifth place in these classes, so the owners of these top five horses will take home a very nice paycheck too. “The prize money payouts continue with the Medallion Stallion Futurity 2-Year-Old Filly and Colt classes, the MAHB Performance Stakes, the MAHB Jackpot classes for 3-Years-Old and Over halter, Get Of Sire, Country English Pleasure, Reining, Western and Hunter Pleasure 14-17 and 13 & Under. A goal for our group is to be as inclusive as possible. We want everyone who comes to the Fall Fest to be able to participate and have a great time.

Quotes

“The Minnesota Fall Fest Medallion Stallion Futurity is the granddaddy of them all! It has an amazing history; so many national champions have won there, so many trainers have started their career showing as an amateur at this event. It’s a great show and the secret to their success is their strong, innovative, dedicated membership. After 31 years, my family is proud to be founding members and we’re looking forward to another great year!” —Lara Ames, MAHB Vice President

“The Minnesota Medallion program was the original amateur futurity program. The founders of the program envisioned a payback program where the best of the best came to compete on a level playing field with amateurs and amateur owners showing horses. The Minnesota Breeders strive to continue that vision and host a show that allows the cream to rise to the top. I believe that the owners, trainers, and especially the breeders, have embraced this show and this futurity due to its integrity, its fairness, and its ability to level the playing field and afford each exhibitor the same opportunity to win big. We are the model from which just about every other stallion futurity based its program and show. While being progressive, we have also stayed true to our roots and the original goal set out by those founding members. It is fair, it is fun and it is fantastic!” —Mike Van Handel, MAHB Director

“It was amazing to have won both the Auction and Medallion classes with Momentum WR in 2011. The cross between Stival and our mare, ATA Psyches Psong, could not have turned out better as our goal is to always breed for beauty and performance. We’re excited for this year’s Fall Fest, as we have a filly and a colt in the Medallion class and one of our stallions is showing in performance as well. We’re proud to be members of the Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders and the impact the program and the show has on the Arabian horse industry.” —Val Sylla, Westridge Farms (Momentum WR was the 2011 MAHB Auction Futurity Champion Yearling Colt and the MAHB Medallion Stallion Futurity Champion Yearling Colt, winning $33,264).

“Although we make an effort to have everyone enjoy themselves, we always remember our core values. First and foremost, Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders is a breeders’ organization. We maintain a limited membership; we believe that by remaining a small group we can be more agile and responsive to the needs of our members. For example, we had a number of people who requested that we extend out entries deadline until the end of August, after Canadian Nationals. We want to be open to improvements and make it as easy as possible for people to participate, so we extended the deadline to August 31, 2012. Hopefully, this will give exhibitors plenty of time to take care of the required paperwork and still allow our staff to process everything properly.

I think when we keep a positive attitude and open minds, it creates a win-win situation for everyone. The result is that we continue to see growth at our show, which is outside the industry trends. In fact, last year our entries were up from the previous year, and it looks like we will have an excellent number of entries this year too. “About the only area where we restrict our numbers is the Medallion Stallion Service Auction. We try to keep the group to around 90 to 100 stallions and focus on the quality, rather than the quantity of the stallions whose services are being auctioned. This is critical because we want to provide the best promotional and marketing opportunities for everyone involved: the stallion owners, the mare owners, and the foal owners as well. The Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders has evolved over the years. Our perspective

Volume 43, No. 3 | MN Breeders • 13


has expanded to a much bigger picture. We are more than a stallion promotional group; we are a breeding organization. As the industry changes and the needs of our members change, we adjust to meet those needs, but always maintain our core values. “People seem to respect and appreciate the fact that we work hard to maintain a high level of integrity at our show. The MAHB Fall Fest has been called the friendliest and fairest show in the country. We’re proud of that! We use the standard AHA scorecard for our yearling preliminary elimination classes. In the championships, the horses in each class come into the ring together and are judged with the comparative method. Everyone seems to really enjoy this system—the judges, the exhibitors and the spectators too. I think we have a great judging panel this year, which is critical because they really set the tone for the show. The judges for the 2012 MAHB Medallion Stallion Futurities are: Scott Benjamin, John Power, Ron Palelek, Jody LaSalle and Corky Sutton. Another person we are excited to welcome, is the Medallion Stallion Service Auctioneer, Greg Knowles. The stallions with services offered in the auction are many of the top sires in the world—they deserve the best! “We look forward to seeing our longtime members and new members too! Everyone is welcome to come participate in the show, the progressive dinner party on Saturday and the Stallion Service Auction on Saturday night—or just come cheer for your favorite horses, you’ll have a great time. For those people who cannot attend the show and auction, these events will be broadcast live on Arabian Horse Global. So this year, we’re bringing the show and auction to the entire Arabian horse community. We hope you’ll join us too! For more information, please visit our website at www.medallionstallion.com.” n

“I can hardly wait to get back to Minnesota and the Fall Festival! This is the granddaddy of all the successful breeder futurities and the model for the new futurities that have emerged all around the country. The Minnesota Fall Festival is so much fun—I just love it! It’s always great to see the young horses being shown. Historically, the Minnesota Fall Fest has been the venue where many of our breed’s national champions have made their show ring debut. It’s an honor to participate as the auctioneer for this event. This auction offers breedings to some of the top sires in the breed. I work with pretty much all of the breeder futurities, and the Minnesota Medallion Stallion Service Auction and their Fall Festival is right at the top.” —Greg Knowles, MAHB Medallion Stallion Service Auctioneer

“My family and I love the Minnesota Breeders Fall Fest for many reasons. We appreciate the fact that it’s a smaller, more intimate show than some others. There are lots of opportunities for people to participate, and it makes you really feel like you are a part of the industry. Of course, it’s always fun to win! Last year, our daughter Indira showed our filly Promisa J (Khadraj NA x Promise V) to the Auction Yearling Filly ATH Championship. Both of our stallions Khadraj NA and MPA Giovanni are Medallion Stallion nominated sires. The Minnesota Fall Fest is a great opportunity to showcase our breeding program and our stallions. We’re bringing horses to show again this year; so, we’ll see you there!” —Larry Jerome, Jerland Farm Arabians

“The Fall Festival is on our ‘must attend’ list for lots of reasons. It is the most fun, with just the right number of classes. The show keeps moving, but it doesn’t feel like a marathon. I enjoy the food, the party atmosphere, and the chance to win some serious money. The auction is filled with great stallions, and I can always buy a breeding that fits both my program and gives me a shot at the really big money in the auction class. It’s all good!” —Peter Conway, MAHB Vice President

Leaders Of The Times: August Calendar Feature

Rrapture by Linda White

pleasure to train, but he’s so talented that I just get out of his way!” Rrapture’s breeders, Dr. Martha McCollough and her daughter, Lauren Grabski, still own the bay colt. “As a baby he was so flamboyant,” marvels McCollough. “We called him ‘Drama-rama’ because he never walked, he always bounced. He still does. He was with us until he was 18 months old. It has been so much fun to watch him grow up. Jason says he has never had a horse this enthusiastic about his job; he never drops an ear. He’s huge, he’s gorgeous, he’s talented, he’s good-minded: he’s the whole package. We get goose bumps when we watch him perform; Rrapture is one of a kind.” “He is one of a kind,” agrees Jason Krohn. “His pedigree is exquisite. He has two crosses to Huckleberry Bey through Afire Bey V and Hucklebey Berry, and six crosses to *Bask through some of *Bask’s most illustrious sons and daughters: Toi Soldier, Promotion, The Judge, Cognac, Autumn Fire, who produced Afire Bey V; and Miz Bask, the dam of Hucklebey Berry. We all loved SF Specs Shocwave, so Dad suggested that he would be a good cross for DD My Dance. Rrapture was an ET foal, because Lauren wanted to show the mare in 2008 and 2009.”

“He is so brilliant and game,” says Jason Krohn of Rrapture, the 3-year-old SF Specs Shocwave colt he is readying for the 2012 U.S. National English Pleasure Futurity. “He’s a great thinker, he loves his work, and he loves himself. As we were preparing for the calendar photo shoot, he understood what was going on; he just cruised around soft and slow, not using himself up. He’s that good, that smart, and that talented. He’s eager, but not hot and excitable; he flat walks perfectly. He has an excellent work ethic, and has been a 216 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

“What a sight it was to watch this fancy, high-headed baby bouncing around his lethargic recipient mare,” recalls McCollough, who fell in love with Arabians in the 1960s, back home in Pennsylvania. She and her husband, Dr. Bill Grabski, own 500 acres in Bullard, Texas, some 30 miles south of Blake and Genna Krohn’s Oak Haven Arabian Farm, in Lindale; trainer Jason Krohn is their son. “I have always loved Arabians,” McCollough explains, “and an oncologist here in town had a few. They invited me to go with them to Colorado and ride trails, which of


RRaptuRe whatever we ask of him. In fact, he’s so sensible that Jason is able to get on him cold, without longeing him first.”

Rrapture (SF Specs Shocwave x DD My Dance)

course made me think about having my own horses. Bill and I bought two green-broke Arabian geldings, 3- and 4-year-olds, to ride. We bought 135 acres for the horses … and before we knew it, it was 500 acres. As Oak Haven in Lindale grew, Blake needed bigger pastures and more acreage for all his Quarter Horse recipient mares and their Arabian foals, so they started bringing the mares and foals here. We would keep the foals through weaning. Then we started keeping the weanlings as yearlings and into their second year, to grow up here, on acres of lush coastal pasture. Then they go to Blake and Jason as long 2-yearolds, to begin training. “We all started calling our ranch Oak Haven South, where we have the ‘Bill and Martha Training School’ for the young horses,” she continues. “We spend hours with them every evening. They get loved on, they learn to wear halters, get fly-sprayed, have their feet picked up and trimmed, and think nothing of getting in and out of the trailer and riding in there comfortably. We also have the geriatrics. We joke that Blake and Genna have the maternity ward, and we have the nursery, the pre-school, and the nursing home. Of the 50 horses here on the property, there isn’t one that won’t come up, curious and friendly, when we go into the pasture. They will leave the other horses when we call their names. “That was Rrapture’s upbringing,” adds McCollough, “so he trusts humans completely. And he’s a horse who seems to have the highest expectations of himself. He loves his work, he is kind and willing, and he cheerfully accepts

Six years ago Blake Krohn recommended DD My Dance ( JDM Rain Dance x VF Majorca, by *Maligg) to McCollough and Grabski as a show horse for their daughter Lauren, who had been riding since she was 13. DD My Dance was only a 4-year-old in 2006, but she and Lauren trotted to a commendable number of Regional and U.S. and Canadian National country English pleasure honors in amateur and junior riders’ classes. The partnership’s apex came three years later, when Lauren rode DD My Dance to two 2009 Canadian National Country English Pleasure Championships in the junior riders division. Rrapture’s maternal grandsire, JDM Rain Dance, has multiple national English pleasure championships to his credit. So does Rrapture’s sire, SF Specs Shocwave (Afire Bey V x Spectra PR, by Promotion.) He was named 2004 U.S. National Champion English Pleasure, and earned a 2005 U.S. Reserve National Championship in the same division, a title he recaptured in 2006. “We bred Rrapture as a 2-year-old, and have five of his babies on the ground,” Blake Krohn explains. “We bred him to a handful of nice mares. I taught him to breed a dummy first, so he is extremely well-mannered and easy to handle. Oak Haven South’s Pryme Thyme daughter had a bay filly, and a Raward V daughter here also had a Rrapture baby; both move wonderfully, and have beautiful faces. We also bred a Half-Arabian, half Saddlebred mare, RB Lady Cassandra; a Half-Arabian hunter mare; and Mi Contessa Bey (Clovis Bey x Athena Alea, by Mi Tosk) who produced a wonderful Afire Bey V foal in 2011. Her Rrapture baby is a star. “All these Rrapture babies are stars,” says Krohn. “Two will possibly be going to Scottsdale in 2013. The quality of Rrapture’s foals excites us about his prospects as a sire.” “We are beyond excited,” says Martha McCollough. “The Rrapture babies are breathtaking. We believe he has the potential to be one of the greatest sires in Arabian horse history, and we can hardly wait for his first show ring appearance at the 2012 U.S. National English Pleasure Futurity.” n Volume 43, No. 3 | 217

At 6D Ranch, the number one priority is the enjoyment of the Arabian horse. While we do have a breeding program based on the industry's top performance stallions, including Undulata's Nutcracker, Black Daniels, Vegaz, and SF Aftershoc, we only produce two to three foals per year because our goal has always been quality, not quantity. 6D Ranch is a place that believes in fun, family, and the Arabian horse. While Kira, Alexa, and Juliette have shown horses at the major shows for the past several years, the true core of our experience has always been simply owning and loving Arabian horses.

2012 Region 9 Championships by Kara Larson in her first year as region 9 Director, margo shallcross is proud of what the region represents, what they’ve been able to accomplish as a collective group, and what they plan to do in the future for the Arabian horse. one of the region’s hallmarks has always been its incrediblycompetitive regional show, and this year it was front and center again promoting the breed. Held at Will rogers memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, the region 9 Championships was the place to be June 13-16, 2012. “our members make the region special. in terms of our regional show, we’ve always been a very large region with competitive horses, and this traces back to the great number of top trainers and exceptional youth and amateur riders we have,” shallcross says. “We’re also blessed with a good location, and it’s well supported by the community. We really have a premier location to show at—Will rogers is probably one of the best show facilities in the country, so that certainly adds to it. We have three air-conditioned arenas, which next year will be interconnected with tunnels between all the barns and stalls, in addition to a lot of other improvements. The venue itself sits in an attractive area with great access to good restaurants, good hotels, and many other amenities that make it a really neat destination for families to come and show.” Bringing It All Together

With more than 500 horses participating in the show, the region 9 Championships was as wide-ranging as the breed it represents. it had nearly every discipline under one roof—working cow, dressage, sport horse, and hunter hack, as well as all of the main ring divisions. shallcross remarks that the toughest competition was in the english and western divisions of the show, but she was very pleased overall with the incredible amount of competition. However, there is one element of the show that shallcross wants to change next year. “our plan is to merge the 22 •

sport horse and dressage classes into the main body of the show,” she says. “This year, they were a little separated because they started the first weekend, then we had a little break. so, we found that because of the requirement for people to stay so many days with hotels and everything, in order to benefit all exhibitors, we will merge these shows a little tighter together. it will save our exhibitors some money, and it will also afford the sport horse group the same amenities our regular championship show offers, because when the sport horses came in to show this year, our patrons’ lounge wasn’t set up, our vendors were just coming in—we really didn’t have full use of all of our amenities. so next year they will, and hopefully, that will allow those exhibitors to enjoy the show more.” Growth In Outreach

With region 9 and the future of the Arabian horse in mind, the hope of expanding the Arabian hoofprint is always on the top of the list for shallcross. “Like any region, we’re trying to promote and bring in new members, and much of what we’re doing goes beyond the regional show,” she says. “in september of this year, we have the reichert Celebration and we’re going to have a full, three-day schedule of classes there. We’re looking to tie into the more western-type breeds in this area. so, hopefully we’ll get some really good exposure to a whole new marketplace. Another thing we’re doing is talking to Dale bilkey, who is executive director of the Pinto Association, about how we could help each other with our Half-Arabians that cross over between the two breeds. “i would say that what region 9 is doing now is an outreach, just trying to expose ourselves through other breeds and become a little bit more user-friendly in those breeds than we have in the past. i think that all breeds find this helpful and essential to do.”


A Little Help From Our Friends

A regional show is a group effort. Every element of the show is variable, and yet, in Region 9, the collective group involved—the horses, the trainers, the exhibitors, the show commission, the volunteers—all came together to make the 2012 Region 9 Championships a smooth-running and successful horse show. “Our success in Region 9 goes back to the most basic elements of showing and owning horses,” Shallcross says. “We’re very fortunate that we’re a large region, so we get great horses in this area. It really starts there. Then we have some phenomenal trainers and quite a few large barns that really contribute to the competitive and deep classes at the show. Finally, there’s always been a lot of volunteers that come forward to lend an extra hand when we need it, and I don’t see that changing. In fact, I see that just growing in Region 9. It’s really a great region.”

Living With Arabian Horses Randy & Angie Sullivan “Why do we do this?” Angie Sullivan wonders rhetorically. “Randy and I both would have to say the main reason we do this is that it allows us to enjoy farm life with our family, and to make a living around the passion we have for the Arabian horse and Arabian horse people. “Admittedly, as a husband and wife team, earning a living successfully has its ups and downs,” she concedes, “because living and working with your spouse 24 hours a day, seven days a week, has its advantages and disadvantages.

“Training horses together pushes us both to try to get better and better at what we do,” explains Randy. “Angie, of course, has a lot to learn. She says that what I can accomplish in an hour will take her a week.” “Of course I admire his skill and timing, but sometimes it’s frustrating to get a lecture from your husband,” Angie counters. “I know when he gets frustrated with my riding skills, it’s only because he wants to make me a better trainer, but some days, I don’t take my husband’s criticism as well as I do other days. I always have to remind him that I’m not Randy Sullivan!

“For example,” she laughs, “when I’m ready to relax and maybe enjoy an hour of my favorite TV soap opera at 9 p.m., Randy is ready to talk about business and what went on in the office that day. I would rather talk about business first thing in the morning, but Randy wants to do just one thing when he gets to the barn in the morning, and that is ride.” 272 | A R A bI A n HOR Se T I meS

“Then, to get back at him,” she chuckles, “I’ll laugh and say, ‘We’ll go into the office and see how fast you can update our website, or put together a YouTube® video!’ We appreciate each other’s skills and have learned to accept that we have different gifts. Our teamwork, our working together, has made our business more successful overall in the past 10 years, thus making the end result that much more rewarding.”


Living With ArAbiAn horses

“Something else that’s rewarding about being a husbandand-wife team is that we have been able to raise our son on the farm, and in the barn,” adds her husband. “There have been many hours of laughter, just from hearing some of the crazy things that come out of a little boy’s mouth, or when one of us loses sight of him for a minute and then discovers him outside, playing in a puddle with his dog, both of them covered in mud. Raising our child with the concept of caring for animals is paying off already.” Angie agrees. “Watching R.J. grow up wanting to help us in the barn is a blessing. He understands why we take such

good care of our horses, and he’s always asking if he can help—when we’re taking care of a hurt leg, for example. He wants to be the little helper, so we let him hold the medicine or the quilt, ‘to make the horsey feel better.’ Farm life is a learning experience you cannot replace. It has a way of teaching our child (and ourselves) life lessons that cannot be learned in a classroom. “Randy’s oldest daughter, Olivia, and her three children are very active at the farm, too,” she continues, “and Mat, our farm manager is Randy’s nephew—so not only do we enjoy him as an employee, we enjoy having him around the farm after hours just to enjoy family time. RJ really looks up to Mat. “The Arabian horse and our client base is the other major factor of why we do this,” she concludes. “Randy has trained other breeds and I have ridden other breeds, but we concur that the quality, charisma and athleticism of the Arabian has been more rewarding than any other breed. And the client base we work for makes our job even more enjoyable. We have a blast at the farm and at the shows. Our clients love to compete, love to win, and most of all, love to have a good time!” n

Region 11 in 2012:

What’s New? Plenty! by Linda White Two-term Region 11 Director Angela O’Neill is understandably excited about Region 11’s new offerings. There is the new, easily-navigated Region 11 website, where information of all kinds is literally at visitors’ fingertips. But the expanded website is only one of this outfit’s recent innovations. O’Neill elaborates. “We have a grass-roots club in northwest Illinois that is offering western dressage,” she begins. “They are introducing ranch horse classes to their show. Ranch horses learn beginning—or training level—dressage, in western equipment, with gaits that are more generally western. This means that exhibitors can train their ranch horses themselves at home. This is an economically affordable way for more Arabian and Half-Arabian owners to participate and to enjoy showing their horses.” “Ranch horse versatility classes include ranch horse pleasure, where horse and rider walk, jog and lope both ways of ring,” says club member Val Waggoner. “The rider then goes to one end of the arena, strips off the saddle and presents the horse in-hand. We have ranch horse reining, horsemanship and trail classes that include everything a ranch has—gates, bridges, logs to drag, dismounting and ground tying, picking all four feet, and jogging over logs or brush. “This is a lot of fun, and it shows Arabians in a different light than people usually think of them. There are no show clothes or show tack and equipment,” she adds. “Entries compete in everyday working gear. The ranch horse classes are judged as if horse and rider were working cows, in a relaxed, free, forward-moving manner, minus the show horse headset. “Western dressage classes will be offered in June 2013 at the Illinois Arabian Horse Show, and will follow Western Dressage Association of America rules and tests.” Angela O’Neill continues, “In Geneseo, Ill., this past April, the Arabian Horse Distance Riding Association sponsored an endurance and competitive riding clinic at Run Along Farms. The clinicians explained the differences between endurance riding and competitive trail riding, and how to take a horse’s pulse and respiration. And the Arabian and Half-Arabian owners at the clinic got to talk with experienced distance riders.” All breeds’ competitive rides feature intermittent holds, or stopping points, where veterinarians check each animal for metabolic and physical soundness. The AHDRA’s well-attended April clinic gave newcomers a chance to learn the basics of conditioning a horse for this demanding task, and how to get started in distance riding. They also got to see and work with horses who had thousands of miles under their girths. Volume 43, No. 3 |

The Arabian Horse Distance Riding Association (www.ahdra.org) is a national organization devoted to promoting the Arabian horse in an event in which the breed excels. Their latest addition is competitive driving, wherein a single horse or pair of horses is driven from 10 to 30 miles, with driving competitions conducted much like competitive rides. For more information, visit their website, www.ahdra.org. Not everything is brand, spanking new, but some offerings’ longevity only adds to their appeal. For example, the Northern Illinois Arabian Horse Activity Club held the first of what would become an annual NIAHAC Arabian Horse Show in 1962. The club recently celebrated the show’s 50th anniversary. The regional concept has been in place since the 1973 IAHA (now AHA) Convention, where delegates adopted the plan that would divide the United States and Canada into 18 regions; Illinois, Iowa and Missouri became Region11. All three states were hubs of Arabian horse commerce and competition in 1973, and they still are. “The NIAHAC club originated around 1960, so the club existed well before there was a Region 11,” says club member Sharlynn Jacobs, who keeps track of such things. “We had a fabulous show this year! We had a drawing during every session, with two class winners getting an additional $50 apiece. We had seven more drawings during the show that included an overnight stay in downtown Chicago. Show committee volunteers put together and gave every entry a bag filled with goodies, and just for fun, we created a collage of old show photos for people to try to identify horses from the past. Our show has moved around over the last 50 years, but it has settled in Springfield, Ill., for the last 15 years.” Things are cookin’ in Missouri, too. Glass Horse Farm, in Raymore, Mo., offers its facilities for many of the Greater Kansas City (Mo.) club’s goings-on. Glass Horse hosted the August 12th Region 11 summer meeting on Sunday, August 12th, 2012, and earlier, on January 28 and 29, the club put on a twoday riding and halter clinic there. Clinicians Chris Culbreth and John Rannenberg shared their considerable expertise in preparing and showing Arabian and Half-Arabian performance and halter horses. Glass Horse Farm also hosted the GKCAHA Midwinter Celebration and High-Point Awards Dinner on Saturday evening, January 28. The next day Culbreth and Rannenberg Volume 43, No. 3 |

gave clinic attendees who had brought along their horses individualized instruction in halter and performance. Missouri has six AHA Region 11-affiliated clubs. Iowa can lay claim to one of North America’s highest-paying, most popular breeders’ incentives, the Iowa Gold Star Futurity. Breeders and enthusiasts from North and South America participate in this prestigious payback program because foals sired by Iowa Gold Star Futurity stallions can win big bucks. To wit: 2011’s winning purebred Iowa Gold Star Auction Filly won $27,850. Bidders at both the purebred and part-bred stallion service auctions get to select from among leading Arabian, Saddlebred and Dutch Warmblood sires. This year’s Iowa Gold Star Futurity Show, open to purebreds and HalfArabians, will take place August 30 through September 3, 2012. Check their website for more information. Iowa has two affiliated clubs, the Iowa Arabian Horse Association and the Arabian Horse Society of Iowa. The Iowa Arabian Horse Association offers a variety of Class A and B shows and fun shows. The Arabian Horse Society of Iowa, established in 1974, sponsors overnight trail rides, fun shows, dressage and western clinics, educational gatherings and informal open barns and get-togethers. The club’s three fun shows qualify entrants for year-end High Point Awards. Stacey Dunn honchos the Region 11 Arabian Horse Association’s T.A.I.L. (Total Arabian Interaction Learning) program. The AHA bills this as “an easy and effective way for current Arabian owners and lovers to share their love for the breed.” T.A.I.L. can be administered at any horse show, horse fair or other equine venue, they add. Angie O’Neill describes the program’s success at the Region 11 Show. “We had 127 youth come this year,” she reports. “They came from Girl Scouts, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and from our area’s home schooling programs. We handed out packets, they got to sit in the stands and watch classes, and we took them through the barns, where they got to have a hands-on experience with Arabian horses. “Something else fun and new at our show this year came when Wanda Funk, driving Eurokhem, brought the flags into the ring each day, displayed on her Meadowbrook driving cart. This was a well-received detail, and one we plan to continue.”

A Leg Up

Biomechanical Efficiency In The Equine Athlete by Heather Smith Thomas The horse is an amazing athlete, with great speed and endurance considering his body size and weight. For the past 25 years, researchers have been examining and evaluating what makes the equine locomotive system so efficient for racing. Hilary Clayton B.V.M.S., Ph.D. (Michigan State University), defines biomechanical efficiency as the efficiency of converting chemical energy from food into mechanical energy as locomotion—and the function of the limbs that allows the animal to move as far or as fast as possible for the smallest amount of food intake (like a fuel efficient vehicle). Unique structural arrangements make leg movement more efficient, such as being able to use elastic springs (tendons) instead of having to use fuel energy in the muscles. Being able to use the leverage of the leg—having a long leg to push against the ground—is another factor.

Energy Efficient Leg Movement

One thing that aids biomechanical efficiency is the way the horse swings his legs forward. “Energy is needed to accelerate the leg and then decelerate it before it hits the ground,” says Clayton. “If you envision the horse on a treadmill, where the ‘ground’ is moving but the horse’s body is not, the leg rotates backward, underneath the stationary body, as the hoof is carried back by the moving treadmill belt. He pushes off against the treadmill, then accelerates the limb through the air so that it overtakes his stationary body, and then decelerates it again, relative to his body, before it hits the treadmill belt.” When the horse is traveling over ground rather than on a treadmill, the hoof is stationary when it is on the ground and the body keeps moving forward. Then, in the swing phase, he must move the whole leg forward faster than his body is moving, before he places his foot on the ground again. “The amount of energy he uses to thrust off and swing the leg is an important factor,” says Clayton. “At the middle of its swing phase, the hoof will be moving forward at a little 314 | A R A BI A n HOR SE T I MES

more than double the horse’s forward velocity. So if the horse is galloping at 40 miles per hour, the hoof is going close to 100 miles per hour during the swing phase. This includes the forward velocity of the horse’s body; there are two components to the speed the hoof is moving—the speed it is moving, just because it is connected to the moving body, and the additional speed it must make as it swings forward. At a racing gallop, the horse is taking about two-and-a-half strides per second. This means 10 times per second, one of the hooves is being accelerated and decelerated. “Regarding the joints involved in swinging the leg, in the front legs it’s mainly the elbow,” she continues. “In the hind leg, it’s mainly the hip joint (the pivot point for the leg). The front leg is more complicated because there is no bony connection between the front leg and the trunk.” The ribcage is slung between the front legs via muscle attachments. The muscles around the shoulder are primarily designed for stabilizing that front leg/trunk connection, and that is why it is the elbow that swings the leg. When the leg is on the ground, the shoulder muscles work to stabilize the leg rather than being as involved with the movement, she says.

Moment Of Inertia

“There are several factors that affect how much energy the horse uses to swing the leg forward,” Clayton says. “The resistance of the leg to forward movement depends on its moment of inertia. The amount of energy used to swing a leg back and forth depends on its resistance to rotation due to inertia. The moment of inertia depends on the mass of the limb and the distribution of that mass (and weight), relative to its point of rotation. It’s like swinging a baseball bat. If you pick it up by its skinny end, it’s harder to swing than if you pick it up by the larger, heavier end. So the moment of inertia reflects where the center of gravity is, relative to the pivot point. The closer you can get the center of gravity to the pivot point, the easier it is to swing the leg because there is less weight farther out.” How the leg is structured (the conformation of the leg and body) will make a big difference. “This is why all the big


A Leg Up muscle masses are high on the limbs, and only lightweight structures—tendons and bone—are present in the lower limb below the knees and hocks,” she explains. “The largest muscles in the front limb are around the shoulder and elbow, with smaller muscles on the forearm. Below the knee, there is virtually no muscle tissue.” Long tendons transmit the forces from the muscles to the lower limb. Tendons are much lighter than muscles. Thus the front cannon, pastern and hoof account for less than one percent of the horse’s weight, says Clayton. The horse has a single toe, which is lighter than a cloven hoof. As the early horse evolved, his multiple toes were reduced to one. “Regarding weight, we have to be concerned about what we put onto the horse’s legs,” she says. If we put wraps, protective boots or shoes on, we are adding more weight way down on the leg, which makes the swing phase of the stride more energy consuming. “The horse can easily carry the same amount of weight on a saddle pad,” she says, “and he uses much less energy to compensate for it than if you put the weight on his shoes. That’s why aluminum shoes are used on racing Thoroughbreds. “Another thing horses do to aid locomotive efficiency is fold the joints of the leg as they swing it forward. The amount of folding increases with speed. This brings the leg closer to its pivot point and reduces that moment of inertia. So, what you want is a leg that’s long when it’s on the ground—so the horse pivots farther forward over the leg—but then becomes short in the swing phase, to make it easier to swing it. That’s where having flexible joints is a huge advantage.”

“Another advantage to the way the horse is built is that some leg muscles are adapted into long, elastic tendons.” Tendon Recoil

Another advantage to the way the horse is built is that some leg muscles are adapted into long, elastic tendons. “These tendons are stretched when weight is on the leg,” says Clayton. “Then, as the horse takes weight off the leg, the tendons recoil like elastic.” Elasticity means the ability of an object to rebound after being pushed, pulled or twisted out of shape. Tendons can stretch when a tensile

force is applied to them, then recoil when the tension is released. The stretching process stores mechanical energy, which is released during recoil; elastic energy is stored as the limb is loaded, then released when the limb is unloaded, she explains. “A tendon in the biceps brachii muscle flexes the elbow,” she says, “and it acts almost like a catapult to pull the leg forward as soon as the weight comes off the front hoof.” Energy is stored as this springy tendon is stretched (at the last part of the stride as the leg is rearward and the hoof is about to leave the ground again). Then the tendon recoils (when the foot leaves the ground and there is no weight on the limb), releasing energy that is used to move the joints—rather than the horse having to actively use his muscles to move them, she explains. This avoids expending energy to contract the muscles, giving the horse more economy of motion. “The digital flexor tendons and the suspensory ligament, that run down the back of the leg, act the same way, stretching as the fetlock extends when the limb is loaded, then recoiling as the leg leaves the ground,” she says. “As the horse goes faster, there’s more loading of the leg and stretching of the tendons when it’s on the ground, and more recoil and flexing when it comes off the ground.” This helps the limb move faster, and also is part of the equation in flexing the leg to bring it closer to its point of rotation, which reduces that moment of inertia. This happens even without the horse having to think about it, because the extra loading of the elastic structure in that phase of the stride automatically bounces the leg higher off the ground.

Push-Off

“When a leg is on the ground, the horse uses muscles to create leverage at the hoof, so it can push harder against the ground for more thrust,” Clayton says. “If you look at the ultimate determinant of speed, it’s not the ability to swing the leg forward more quickly; it’s the ability to push harder against the ground.” The hind legs give much of the driving power and the fronts aid somewhat in pulling the horse along. “Racing horses roll right over that front leg and use it as part of the pushing forward apparatus, for more momentum,” she says. All the muscles down the back of the hind leg, however—the hip extensors, hamstrings, etc.—are very important for pulling the hind leg back (for thrust) as it is on the ground. n Volume 43, No. 3 | 315
