Comments From The Editor

There are two things I’m hearing a lot about these days. One is, of course, U.S. Nationals, and the other is making a positive difference in the breed. It occurred to me that this year, the U.S. Nationals and positive thinking are made for each other. AHA’s Convention is November 14-17, so if you are one who is committed to making a difference, why not try to find a few minutes to talk to others about it? Tulsa would be a great place to have face-to-face discussions, not on the Internet or in the pages of a magazine, on all the suggestions we’ve heard. I know, everyone is very busy, but few people other than the professionals work 24/7. Conversations in the grandstands and the barn aisles, at lunch and dinner—whenever there is a moment—are a great opportunity to evaluate ideas and advocate viewpoints even before delegates head out to the Convention. If everyone keeps it positive, talking about all the good ideas cannot help but make the whole show more positive as well. We can imagine a great future for the Arabian horse. Now, let us use the U.S. Nationals as a springboard for change at Convention.

Cover Story

Jullye Al Gazal xx by Mary Kirkman

Jullye Al Gazal XX is no accident. You might say she was a twinkle in her breeder’s eye when he got into Arabians a dozen years ago. Larry Schopf of Twin X Arabians in Madison, Wis., is not unacquainted with success in the Arabian business; his first major trophy with a horse he bred came in 2005, when he led Magical Toi XX, already a U.S. National Top Ten, to the Scottsdale Half-Arabian Gelding In-Hand Stock/Hunter Championship. Then in 2007, he purchased Canadian National Top Ten Filly Olivia D and showed her to the amateur owner championships at Scottsdale and the U.S. Nationals. And there have been others, purchases and homebreds, that have put awards on his record and furthered his knowledge of Arabians. But none have represented so clearly what he wanted to breed as the yearling filly Jullye Al Gazal XX, who burst on the scene at Scottsdale to score a unanimous victory as International Champion Junior Filly. “When she walks into the arena, she’s captivating,” says trainer Keith Krichke, who led Jullye that day. “There is a look about her when she starts to get a high on; I’ve had lots of very good yearlings and some great ones, but there is something unique about what this one does. “I remember when I brought her out of the barn for Sheila Varian,” he continues, “and Sheila just said, ‘Oh, my word.’ And when I was going down the chute into the arena at Vegas— literally, the Brazilian trainers were walking along beside me. 40 | A r A BI A N HOr SE T I MES

They were not standing back, saying, ‘That looks great, Keith;’ they were actually walking beside me, watching her. It’s not that she is just a proud Arabian. There is a different flavor about the whole thing. ‘Sensual’ is a good word for her.” The story of Jullye Al Gazal XX begins in 2008 with her dam, Beautiful Juell V. With his advisors and friends Dan and Judy Lynch, Schopf attended the Varian Arabians Summer Jubilee, and after the weekend, the three sat down with Varian to discuss the Twin X breeding goals. Schopf had learned that programs which were successful long term were anchored by a strong tail female line, and he was searching for a mare who could fill that role for him. Varian responded by showing them 3-yearold Beautiful Juell V; by Jullyen El Jamaal and out of Bint Balalinka, she represented one of the strongest damlines in production today. Varian sketches the heritage. “The mare that became our foundation mare through her tail female line was *Bachantka, sired by Wielki Szlem, out of Balalajka,” she says. “Balalajka was considered the finest mare in Poland, and besides *Bachantka, she also produced Bandola, who was called the ‘Queen of Poland’ and was the dam of the great stallion *Bask. We bred *Bachantka to *Bask and produced Balalinka, who we then bred to Huckleberry Bey, with the resulting filly Bint Balalinka V. We then bred


her to Jullyen El Jamaal and produced Beautiful Juell V. Beautiful Juell V is the fourth generation in the direct female line to *Bachantka.” Every one of those generations had been successful at stud. “Beautiful Juell V came into the presentation paddock with such confidence that I knew I needed to find a way to own her,” Schopf relates. “I did, and we brought her back to Madison.”  It did not hurt that Beautiful Juell V’s pedigree was not only historic but also current, Judy Lynch points out. Juell’s sire, Jullyen El Jamaal, is popular now, which increases the marketability of her foals, and also, he is out of Jullye El Ludjin, considered one of the most beautiful mares in Brazil and herself the representative of a strong damline. The immediate challenge was to determine a sire for Beautiful Juell V’s first foal, and the team made the decision at the 2009 Scottsdale Signature Stallion Auction. They were interested in the Gazal Al Shaqab line, specifically a rising young star, and when Gazal’s son SF Veraz trotted into the ring, their selection became easy. Owned by Patti Scheier, SF Veraz was only 3 at the time, but he already had a presence of his own. Again, the pedigree reflected not only exceptional stallion power, but influential females as well: SF Veraz’s dam is the U.S. National Champion Futurity Filly Veronica GA, and just a few generations away are Kajora, *Edjora, *Bint Magidaa, *Deenaa and Precious As Gold—a matriarchal dream team—as well. Their confidence was not misplaced. In 2010, Beautiful Juell V foaled a colt Schopf named Juell Al Veraz XX, who showed with Keith Krichke to a Scottsdale Top Ten in International Arabian Breeders Yearling Colts, a regional championship, and a U.S. National Top Ten in Yearling Colts. He is now maturing at Dan Lynch Farms while his sister takes center stage. Rebred to SF Veraz, Beautiful Juell V produced Jullye Al Gazal XX in February 2011. Right away, Schopf knew he had something special. “With great conformation, extreme confidence, and a sweet disposition, she has been the highlight of my breeding program,” he says simply.  “Every time she went out, she had an air of superiority,” Judy Lynch adds. “She definitely has a ‘wow’ factor.” When the time came, the filly was sent to Keith Krichke for halter schooling, which, they report, she handled like a pro—so well that the decision was made to send her to Scottsdale for the competitive International classes.

Judy Lynch recalls the evening she showed. “It was a perfect night; we were so proud when Jullye led Keith into the ring. The arena was hers—the buzz started in the crowd. Jullye was on. She walked away with the Gold in the yearling class, and then came the Junior Championship. All eyes were on her as she again led Keith into the ring. Her tail over her back, her tulip ears and dark, luminous eyes taking it all in. She was not to be denied. The crowd couldn’t take their eyes off her. Then the moment came and she was named the unanimous Gold Champion, and everyone knew they were watching one of the finest young fillies in the Arabian industry start her career. It was a very proud moment for us, and the validation of the Twin XX breeding program.” The icing on the cake was that Sheier Farms had scheduled a presentation of SF Veraz that evening, which drew further attention to both the filly and her sire. “There have been many times when I have seen Jullye’s special qualities and personality,” says Schopf. “But the most special had to be at Scottsdale, with her unanimous wins. With the SF Veraz presentation, and the subsequent crowd reactions at her presentation at the Krichke and Ted Carson Open Barns, it was a proud night and week.” In all the hoopla of her conformation and show presence, it might be easy to lose sight of Jullye’s day-to-day personality, but for Schopf, that is an integral part of her value. “She’s very sweet,” he says. “In addition to the normal breeding goals of bloodlines and conformation, I look for horses that are easy to handle, intelligent and have that disposition.” That too is part of her damline, a tenet of the Varian program, bred into Beautiful Juell V. There is also a performance career to think of, he observes. “Juell Al Veraz XX will be a fantastic western horse. I don’t know what Jullye’s performance career will look like—probably any one of a number of things, based on her movement.” With sales to Brazil, Canada and the Middle East, Larry Schopf has streamlined his broodmare band now to have just Beautiful Juell V and a few other individuals. The plan is to have two to three foals a year. He would like to keep the Arabian population to around 10, he says, but he’s well aware that when one comes along like Jullye Al Gazal XX, reason sometimes flies out the window. “The certainty of Jullye Al Gazal XX becoming a great broodmare is unquestionable,” Sheila Varian says. “She has already proven herself in the show ring as the Gold Medal winner in the Scottsdale International Junior Championship. The mare line of *Bachantka continues to prove the importance of the tail female line in producing top quality consistently.” n Volume 43, No. 5 | 41

Step By Step to a

Brighter Future by Lori Davisson

Wow! A column in Arabian Horse Times! How did this all happen? Where do I begin? Let me introduce myself to everyone. My name is Lori Davisson, and I am a Special Education Coordinator for a high school district in McHenry, Ill. I have been doing this for 30-plus years, and am getting ready to retire in May 2013. I have also been involved in the Arabian horse industry since buying my first gelding from Lasma in 1977. In August, while watching the Saddlebred World’s Championships, I had an idea. I thought to myself, ‘H’m, after I retire, wouldn’t it be fun to do some volunteer work with the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) to help bring some of the excitement I am seeing at World’s to our National Show?’ I saw a post on a friend’s Facebook® page right at this time. On it, he named the top six things he thought were great about World’s. Those ideas were very similar to what I was thinking. So we chatted and decided to make a Facebook® Group about ways to promote some positive change in our wonderful breed. I started the Group and titled it “Promoting ‘Postive’ Change for the Arabian Breed,” spelling error unintentional. Did you know that once a Facebook® Group has 250 members, you can’t change its title? Believe me, we tried! I invited some of my Arabian owning “friends” on Facebook® (about 100 of them) to join me in the Group so we could have a discussion on what we thought would be positive, fun ways to help make the U.S. National Championships the best they could be. Well, those 100 friends told their friends who told their friends, and now, this Group has over 2,500 members! The goal of this page is to provide a place to have ideas shared and heard by any and all people who embrace this wonderful breed.

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

There are six administrators of the Group, and we all monitor the page to be sure no one is using it for negative reasons. We all feel very strongly that there is enough of that in cyberspace. We wanted to provide a safe place for everyone to express their views and know that there is no bullying allowed. The only rule we have is, all ideas have to be presented with a solution. No complaining, but what are the action steps needed to solve the problem. Soon, “I” became “we,” and we are now dedicated to keeping lines of communication open and positive with all members of this Group. To go back to the beginning, what were my original thoughts? I started this Group with the thought that I would post my ideas and we could all discuss:


1. Changing the picture taking procedures at Nationals so the show was the focus. 2. Classes being pinned. 3. Later start time. 4. Fewer divisions, with a grand championship for all divisions. 5. Having a goal for the show, and knowing what that goal is. 6. Giving prizes, maybe small ones, but prizes, to exhibitors. 7. Having a charity to “give back to,” promoted by the U.S. Nationals. I put this in a document on the page, and included my solutions to these ideas. I also put out there that I am more than willing to volunteer my time, after I retire, to work on any of these areas. Little did I know what would come of these thoughts!

to being all-inclusive and keeping things positive. Julie Stewart and Bill Hughes have helped guide us to people who can answer many of our questions. Glenn Petty has continually asked us how AHA can help. To be honest, I think it is really great that AHA wants our insight! One little Facebook® Group, being heard by the leaders of the Arabian Horse Association! I am hoping that each month, we can dedicate a column to a different group that wants to present their ideas. I will say that AHA has been very supportive of anything we have presented to them. We have heard, “Yes, we can do that” more than we ever thought we would. If there has been a “no” answer to anything we have asked, it has always been backed with a good reason. There have been conference calls on things that are even in the works for the 2012 U.S. Nationals! Wear your pretty clothes, get ready to walk the Red Carpet with interviews and parties galore! Bring on the glam, because we are hoping this year’s U.S. Nationals will be the first step in helping AHA be the best it can be!

“Our motto has been, ‘Baby Steps.’ Take it slow, and every step we take is a step forward. We are devoted to being allinclusive and keeping things positive.”

All of a sudden, I was getting calls, texts, e-mails, and Facebook® messages from people all over the country! From leaders at AHA to single horse owners who loved that their voices were being heard, to Arabian Horse Times asking me to write a column! The ideas started flowing and people wanted to see where they could go to get their ideas listened to. I got a phone call from Hilary Nixon at AHA! Seems like the office in Denver had begun to hear about our little Facebook® Group! Hilary asked what AHA could do to help any ideas get heard by the right people in the organization.

Soon there were committees of people who were dedicated to working on areas that are dear to their hearts. Some want to add AATR divisions, some want to bring back the glamour to Nationals, many want prize money programs implemented, marketing increased, lowered fees, Select rider rules; there were Sport Horse riders who want to be heard, breeders who want to keep their identities, and so many more areas that I never even dreamed of. Many people have been taking the lead and starting action plans and solutions to areas that they see as ways to make our breed the best it can be. Our motto has been, “Baby Steps.” Take it slow, and every step we take is a step forward. We are devoted

We will have a table in or near the Ford Truck Arena at U.S. Nationals and will also have a presence at the Welcome Booth, where the TAIL tours will be setting up. We hope that everyone stops by and visits with us, shares their ideas and becomes one of our “friends” on this wonderful Group’s Facebook® page! Let’s all work to make the Arabian horse breed the best it can be! Promoting “Postive” Change in the Arabian Breed—we are AHA, so let’s be sure we are the best AHA there is! Lori Davisson is a second generation horse owner who fell in love with the Arabian breed more than 30 years ago. She has been involved in her club, the Northern Illinois Arabian Horse Activity Club, for many years. She has shown at all levels in the Arabian show circuit and is dedicated to helping keep AHA strong. Lori has been married to her supportive husband, Dan, for 24 years, has a son Kyle who is an Outdoor Education major at Western State Colorado University, and a daughter, Stephanie, who, after graduating from the University of Kentucky, now trains Arabian horses for Lamb Show Horses in Elma, Wash. n

The love of the Arabian horse has been a lifelong passion for internationally acclaimed horseman, David Boggs, and his greatest joy is sharing that passion with those he loves—his family and friends. “The Arabian horse has enriched my life in countless ways, most significantly, through my family,” says Boggs. “My father and mother shared their love of the horses with my siblings and me, and now I am able to share that same love with my own family. Terry Anne and I are fortunate that our children Lyndsey and Courtney, who are twins, our daughter, Emma, and our son Jake, all enjoy the horses. The special friends we have made and the wonderful people we have met, the beautiful places we have visited and the exciting adventures we have had, are all because of the Arabian horse. Words cannot describe how God has blessed us. I want to share that with others.”

2 MW | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes


David Boggs’ heartfelt desire has become his life’s work. Over the past 30 years, he has traveled the world from Paris, France, to Pewaukee, Wisc., from Dubai City, Dubai, to Des Moines, Iowa, from Sao Paulo, Brazil, to Santa Inez, Calif.; David has visited every continent where Arabian horses live. Along the way, he has met members of royal families, rulers of nations, aristocrats, titans of industry, movie stars, and rock stars. However, his favorite people are those who love the Arabian horse—breeders, trainers, grooms, those who own Arabian horses and those who dream of the possibility, especially the children.

“I love everything about the Arabian horse,” states Boggs. “To me, it is one of the most perfect creatures on earth. The beauty of the Arabian is incomparable, and their spirit, kindness, intelligence, courage, heart, gentleness, and love of people captivated me when I was just a boy. That connection has never diminished; every day I find something new to love about the horses. To work with them is a dream come true.” David Boggs’ passion for the Arabian horse is the key to the success of Midwest Training Centre. His passion created his vision, it provides his energy, and

Volume 43, No. 4 | MW 3


it sustains his commitment to search out and find, acquire, transform, and showcase the crème de la crème of the breed. Thirty years of experience has trained David’s eye to see what others miss—potential. His ability to see beyond the immediate, and visualize the possibility, is not a skill. It is a gift. “In my search for truly great Arabian horses, I keep an open mind,” continues Boggs. “When a small breeder comes to me and tells me they have a superstar, I listen. Many of the most influential horses in history are the result of small breeders’ programs. I believe these dedicated people are the backbone of our industry. I totally appreciate their commitment and respect the importance of their contributions. There is an indescribable thrill when I see a special horse that comes from a small breeder. I can see their pride in their accomplishment – it’s very rewarding! “Generally, if I see a horse that really impresses me, I am confident that I can find a buyer for it. If it’s a horse I would want to own for myself, then I know I can work with it—even if it’s not conditioned or trained. For me, finding a diamond in the rough is often the most exciting opportunity. Taking a horse that has unrealized potential and developing it into a show ring superstar is a fantastic experience. It really doesn’t get much better than that.”

As people took notice of David’s accomplishments, more and more of them turned to him for his expertise. This swell of interest brought some very special horses into his life. Some people describe a horse that has a profound influence on them as their “once-in-a-lifetime” horse. David met a “once-in-a-lifetimehorse” when he was introduced to the great stallion *Padron. Together they made history and shaped the future of the Arabian horse breed. David showed *Padron to the Arabian “Triple Crown”—the Scottsdale, Canadian and U.S. National Championship titles. Then, in 1983, David syndicated the stallion for a record breaking $11 million dollars. He completed the unimaginable feat in just 90 days. Equally important, David created and implemented the plan that enabled *Padron to become one of the most successful and influential sires in the history of the breed. Throughout the years, hard work and talent proved to be the keys to success for David Boggs. It seems that each of his accomplishments created new opportunities. Year after year, with each show ring win and satisfied client, David Boggs built Midwest Training Centre into a thriving business. His success David Boggs and *Padron

in the show ring attracted the best of the best in the breed, and people from around the world brought their superstar horses to Midwest to be shown and marketed. People everywhere want to be associated with excellence, and in the Arabian horse industry, the pinnacle of excellence was found at Midwest. Strolling along the pristine aisleways and looking into the sunlit stables was like walking into Tiffany’s. Each filly and colt, each mare and stallion were glittering gems among the breed. Access to great horses like these created a market that brought buyers from around world to

Midwest. By the end of the decade, the names of David Boggs and Midwest were synonymous with the highest levels of show ring and marketing success in the Arabian horse industry. David’s success with *Padron was not a one-time stroke of luck. David marketed Padron’s son, Padrons Psyche as a 3-yearold, showed him to the title of 1991 U.S. National Reserve Champion Stallion (the youngest horse in the history of the breed at the time to win that title), and then marketed the stallion again—all the while promoting him as a sire and helping to

create the next generation of Arabian horse superstars. It takes an owner with a deep passion, as well as the resources to care for a world-class stallion and sire of influence such as Padrons Psyche. David found the perfect match with Dixie and Bob North of North Arabians, who owned and cared for Psyche for more than 10 years. Under their stewardship, Padrons Psyche was able to achieve his ultimate destiny as one of the leading sires of the Arabian horse breed on a global basis. Following in the success of Psyche came his very special son, Magnum. A stallion as incomparable as Magnum Psyche deserved an owner who understood his potential, who could accept the

responsibility and embrace the experience of owning and caring for one of the most important Arabian stallions of our generation. The father and son team of Fernando and Joaquin de Santibanes possessed the desire, the dedication, and the ability to provide every opportunity for Magnum Psyche to achieve his full potential. It, too, was a perfect match. Magnum Psyche proved his show ring potential with his stunning physical excellence and earned five National Championship titles in halter. However, his most important achievement took place in the breeding barn. Magnum Psyche’s amazing ability to sire offspring of exceptional beauty and in his likeness Volume 43, No. 4 | MW 7


earned him a ranking among the Arabian Horse DataSource’s Top Leading Sires of the World. The list of Magnum sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters, that have been shown to national and international championships, who have been marketed for record breaking prices through Midwest Training Centre, and gone on to become the foundation for successful breeding programs around the world has significantly increased the influence of Magnum Psyche and the account of David Boggs’ achievements. The foundation of Midwest’s success was built like that of a great monument—one that endures the test of time—one stone at a time, or in the case of Midwest, one horse at a time. It took years of endless effort, focused attention to detail, and a

8 MW | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

keen understanding of the importance of customer service to establish and build the Midwest that we know today. These efforts are sustained by the inspiration of this enterprise—David Boggs’ passion for the Arabian horse. This is the fuel that provides the energy and commitment to provide excellence on every level to the clients of Midwest. “The horses come first at Midwest,” says Boggs. “After all, they are the reason this business even exists. We’re all here because we love the Arabian horse. Really, I can’t imagine my life without them. But the clients make it all possible. Believe me; I never underestimate the importance of my relationship with our clients and the importance of first-class customer service.


“We strive to provide the absolute best, the most comprehensive services, the most positive experience, and the most fun possible for our clients. For example, if we have a great horse to sell, we offer to care for the horse, guide the owner and the horse through its career in the show ring, and then plan for its future breeding career. If it’s a stallion, we offer to stand and manage the horse, market his semen, and promote his offspring. If our client buys a mare, we will help them to achieve her highest potential in the show ring and then guide them in selecting the stallion with the greatest potential to ‘nick’” with her to produce a great foal. We will keep and care for the mare, have her bred, and foal her out. Basically, our clients can enjoy all of the wonderful benefits of owning one or even 100 world-class Arabian horses without the cost or effort of maintaining

a farm. For some owners, our farm has become their farm, and in the process, our family becomes like their family. We enjoy so much together—the horses, the foals, the shows, picnics, and parties! It’s a lot of fun! “I have the most amazing job in the world!” continues Boggs. “Sure, it’s a lot of work, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My father told me that if something is worth having then it’s worth working for. He also taught me, by his own example, the honor of a hard day’s work. It’s a principle I never forgot and one that I live by each day. At our farm, we offer five-star services to our clients and their horses. We are available to them 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That’s

10 MW | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

what it’s all about—surrounding ourselves with the very best horses and offering the absolute best services. I believe that’s what has made Midwest the best farm in the business.” David is correct when he says that hard work and customer service have positioned Midwest as a leader in the industry. However for his clients, David’s consistent track record of success in the show ring and in the marketplace are highly motivating reasons to choose Midwest and to stay with them. Dan and Maureen Grossman have been involved with Arabian horses for over 30 years and have owned and bred some of the most noteworthy individuals of the breed, including the great sire, Bey Shah. David


The Boggs kids—Courtney, Lyndsey, Emma and Jake.

sold $1.5 million in Bey Shah breeding packages. Several years later, in 2003, David brought another superstar stallion into the lives of Dan and Maureen Grossman—the breathtaking, bay, yearling colt named DA Valentino. David saw the potential and believed wholeheartedly in the possibility of this colt. The Grossmans knew they could depend on David’s expertise, and they were not disappointed. DA Valentino earned six national championship titles. Then tragedy struck, and we had to mourn our loss of this great stallion and all that he meant to the Arabian breed. At just 8 years old, DA Valentino was already one of the most successful sires of his generation. Another example of long-term success is Fernando and Joaquin de Santibanes, the owners of the international superstar, Magnum Psyche. David facilitated the sale of Magnum Psyche to Fernando and Joaquin in 1997 and sold an unheard of number of breedings to the colt when he was still just a yearling. Since that time, Volume 43, No. 4 | MW 11


Annual Kids Day at Midwest.

David has been instrumental in guiding Magnum’s show career to five national championship titles and, perhaps more importantly, guided his breeding career that resulted in over 1,200 registered offspring and hundreds of national and international champion get and grandget. David Boggs has shown national and international champion Arabian horses throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia. Midwest’s show record is unmatched. When you consistently show the best horses, it’s not surprising to consistently win the top awards. Reviewing the list of past national and international champions presented by Midwest would be like a trip to the Arabian horse Hall of Fame: *Padron, Bask Calonett, *Kaborr, NH 12 MW | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

Love Potion, Amber Satin, La Duquesa, Almaden, JBK Mystic Fawn, Magnum Psyche, Magnum Chall HVP, LD Pistal, Maggdalina, JJ La Estrella, JJ Apharina, DA Valentino, Vitorio, Aria Impresario, *JJ Baronesa, and so many more—too many to name and most of them with multiple championship titles. The number of awards earned by Midwest, their clients and horses, add up quickly; from 2004 through 2012, the Midwest team earned 96 U.S. National and Reserve National Championship titles and four Scottsdale Supreme Halter Championship awards! Add to that impressive number, the amount of championship titles from Canada, Brazil, Argentina and all of the other national and international shows they have attended and you get an idea of the consistency this team delivers and the quality of the horses they present.


That same level of consistency and quality carry over from the show ring to the marketing department of Midwest. Wherever excellence is appreciated, there is the desire to acquire and breed for the best. The market for the top Arabian horses has no bounds. Over the past 30 years, David estimated that Midwest has marketed more than $30 million dollars’ worth of international champion mares and over $40 million dollars in stallions with those same credentials. That is why owners, breeders, and trainers look to Midwest as the leader in the industry for marketing top quality Arabian horses. ■Volume 43, No. 4 | MW 13

The Beautiful Story of This Special Colt

Some things in life mark you forever.

Twenty-five years ago, I heard of Lenita Perroy and her incredible stallion Ali Jamaal. This stayed with me for all these years as more than just a goal, but a big dream. It started to become reality when I met all these wonderful people in the Arabian horse world, who would then lead me to my Elishahh! This was more than love at first sight! It was a combination of all the most wonderful feelings one can possibly have, but most of all, being so very grateful, because of how many people in the world spend their whole life looking for this wonderful feeling and never, ever experience something like this.


“I am very excited and proud to be presenting AAS-Elishahh at the U.S. Nationals for our friend Luciana Fasano and her beautiful Fazenda Floresta of Brazil. Elishahh has it all. His beauty and charisma are what we imagine the ideal Arabian horse to be. As a young stallion, his conformational quality and fantastic pedigree make him a breeder’s dream. Elishahh is already a two-time National Champion, and now we have set our sights on Tulsa and winning another title and crown!” — David Boggs “AAS-Elishahh! Not much more can be said about this fantastic 3-year-old stallion that has already earned two U.S. National Championships! We can’t wait to see his success in the breeding arena as well. We wish Luciana the very best success with Elishahh and all of her wonderful horses!” — Fernando and

Joaquin de Santibanes, Haras Mayed, Argentina, Breeders and Horsemen “I was quite impressed by AAS-Elishahh when I judged him at the 2011 Las Vegas Breeders World Cup, and the stallion remains in my mind. I remember him as if it was today—a very correct and refined horse with that very special “look-at-me attitude!” Some time after seeing Elishahh at the show, I spoke to Luciana Fasano and told her that I would like to breed most of my best mares to him. These mares come from a very diverse genetic pool, yet they had complementary backgrounds and would cross nicely with him. I believe that Elishahh can make a difference in one’s breeding program. He is very solid. He has most of the qualities I am seeking for my breeding program: Type! Type! Type! Plus attitude! And correctness! He has a well-set neck, a very strong body with beautiful proportions, and huge black eyes with the clean look we are striving for. I am proud to say I was one of the first supporters of this young stallion in Brazil, and we are looking forward to seeing the babies with our wonderful mares!

— Fabio Amorosino, Haras Serondella, Brazil, 2011 ABWC Judge “Take my word for it, this young stallion is the “Real Deal!” Fads come and go. AAS-Elishahh has a breeder’s pedigree as illustrious and enduring as the melting of great genetics could possibly allow. AAS-Elishahh already has more National Championships and major wins than most stallions dream about, and he accomplished this by impressing the most elite of international judges. AASElishahh is truly a horseman’s horse with a breeder’s pedigree. Don’t take your eyes off of him!” — Richard Adams, 2011 ABWC and U.S. National Judge

“Elishahh is one of the most correct and typey stallions that I have seen in a long time. I saw him as a yearling and judged him as a 2-year-old at the U.S. Nationals. He won both times by a mile. I just saw him recently, and he definitely is one of the truly great young Arabian stallions that will impact our industry for many years to come. I love him and can’t wait to see the incredible foals he will produce! And, I ‘tip my hat’ to Luciana for doing great things for a great horse. Well Done!” — Terry Holmes,

2011 U.S. National & International Judge “When I first saw AAS-Elishahh, beauty, presence and style poured out of him. Not only was he spectacular, he had that special quality that draws people to him. At the time, I was searching for a national champion quality colt for Luciana Fasano and her beautiful Fazenda Floresta in Itú, Brazil. My good friend Michael Byatt suggested I consider AAS-Elishahh. When I saw Elishahh I knew he was the right horse. I called Luciana and told her about Elishahh; she didn’t hesitate. Later, Luciana told me, ‘I never doubted you, Guzzo.’ I knew it was the right thing to do. So, I did it and never looked back. “Elishahh went on to win U.S. National Champion Yearling Colt, Las Vegas Breeders World Cup Supreme Gold Champion Junior Stallion and U.S. National Champion Two-Year-Old Colt. Now Elishahh heads to his third U.S. National Championship as a 3-year-old. He is an amazing show horse and certain to be an amazing sire.” — Rodolfo Guzzo, International Expert Training and Marketing Arabian Horses “The first time we heard about AAS-Elishahh was at the 2010 U.S. Nationals. The whole show was abuzz about the beautiful bay yearling colt that Michael Byatt was going to present. AASElishahh was named U.S. National Champion Sweepstakes Yearling Colt and his sire, Eden C was named U.S. National Champion Junior Stallion. AAS-Elishahh is following in Eden C`s footsteps in the show ring and we are sure he will follow in those footsteps as a sire too. We feel Elishahh will continue on his path to fame under the guidance of his gracious owner Luciana Fasano.” — Rhoda and Rhonda Coleal, Coleal Arabian

Horse Farm, Breeders of Eden C “When I showed AAS-Elishahh to his title of 2010 U.S. National Champion Yearling Colt and to his title of 2011 Arabian Breeders World Cup Supreme Gold Champion Junior Stallion, I was impressed with his superior beauty, quality, and attitude. I knew this was a colt that would accomplish great things.”

Dining Guide by Linda White

German or other european dining? And would that be fine dining, casual dining, a tavern, or maybe something family-friendly? Tulsa has excellent mexican restaurants, steak houses, barbecue joints, soup and salad, and vegetarian restaurants, and depending on your blood sugar reading, 27 irresistible bakeries and dessert shops.

Tulsa now has 1,474 restaurants, 296 more than it had in 2011. That will give U.s. nationals visitors a smorgasbord of dining opportunities equaled by few other cities of its size. Tulsa’s many sports, livestock, educational, cultural and historical events and attractions give other cities a run for their money because Tulsa’s diversity brings tourists who are almost as varied as the eateries they find awaiting them. Fortunately, local restaurant guides like the Urban spoon, Dining Guide Tulsa and the one the Tulsa Visitors’ and Convention bureau sends out have comprehensive listings. Do your taste buds crave burgers, pizza or good old, “Let’s grease down!” diner fare? How about some italian, Chinese, Japanese, mexican, Thai, indian, French,

if time is short, Tulsa, like every other north American city large or small, has an assortment of dependable chains, like T.G.i. Friday’s, the olive Garden, P.F. Chang’s China bistro and marie Callender’s. Fast food joints abound. if a platter of Denny’s humble grub, a Dairy Queen blizzard, a mcDonald’s Angus burger (try the one with swiss cheese and portabella mushrooms, but tell ’em to forget the mayo) or a few Taco bell soft tacos would do the job, you have but to look around you. You won’t find Labamba’s “burritos as big as Your Head,” but Tulsa has its share of seriously good south-of-the-border canteens, with something for every pocketbook. expo square alone has numerous restaurants. The following is an up-to-the-minute restaurant guide. And if you can’t get through the horse show without a horn of single malt scotch or a hand-shaken margarita made with 1800 silver Tequila, blue agave nectar and fresh-squeezed lime juice, we guarantee that you will find an establishment within walking distance. no matter the culinary longing, horse show visitors will find a suitable restaurant in Tulsa (however, we take no responsibility for higher-priced cravings for expensive footwear, jewelry, custom made riding apparel or slant-stall horse trailers with eat-in kitchens, huge flat-screen TVs and walk-in freezers). bon appétit!

12USP2733-Arabian Horse Show Program Ad_RV.indd 1

10/10/12 10:01 AM


The View From CenTer ring U.S. Nationals Judge Van Jacobsen

Van Jacobsen is one of the Arabian breed’s renaissance men. He has shown in a variety of disciplines, has served as a ringman, judge, show manager, club president, regional director and AHA delegate. Not to mention, he has logged about 2,900 miles in endurance riding and completed the Tevis Cup on his first try. He has served on AHA’s Ethical Practices Review Board for 20 years, and has been its chair for the past 13. So you might say that when the horses come through the in-gate at U.S. Nationals later this month, no one can say that the tall, sandy-haired official in the halter arena is inexperienced.

130 | A R A BI A N HoR SE T I MES

Jacobsen, who now lives in Pine Island, Minn., got into the breed in 1970, and since then, he has never been without an Arabian or Half-Arabian. He has shown in a variety of divisions, and one of his early horses, U.S. National Reserve Champion Big Deal, was twice the American Horse Shows Association’s Arabian of the Year. Jacobsen even trained professionally for a couple of years, and observes that it was only when he had weighed the merits of depending on the horses for a living versus improving his chances of affording them forever that he opted for a legal career. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, he attended the William Mitchell College of Law and has been a practicing attorney for more than three decades. He now owns three geldings who live in his backyard barn. “I enjoy going out every morning and taking care of them, cleaning stalls,” he says. “That is my sanity before I come to work and deal with ‘people problems.’ I’ve got my beautiful Arabian horses to keep me grounded.” Jacobsen has been a licensed large ‘R’ (national-level) horse show judge for more than 25 years. Before this


year’s U.S. Nationals, he sat down with AHT to answer a few questions from a judge’s perspective.

As a judge, what do you see in the show ring that you might call a pet peeve? The biggest pet peeve I have is when the class is called and nobody comes into the ring. As a judge, my intent is always to be out there when the class is called. Everyone complains if the show runs long, and they usually blame the judge. For judges, there is a fine balance between giving everybody a chance to show their horse, but not spending too much time on every class. So we generally are very cognizant of how many classes we have to get done and in what timeframe, but the clock doesn’t start until the first horse enters the ring. For everybody’s benefit, we appreciate it if exhibitors will come on into the ring.

not trotting. It’s cantering, the gate has shut behind it, the class is underway and we’re judging. It is probably going to be penalized. Had the rider come in earlier and the horse broke into a canter, I would not be judging it; they could get their horse settled and by the time the gate shut, they would be fine. I assume that one reason some people come in last is to save their horse’s energy. We see some people come in earlier, stop their horse at some point of the ring, and wait for the rest of the class to get in because they don’t want to wear their horses out. It is not something I particularly encourage, but there is nothing illegal about it. Judging commences when the gate is closed.

Is refusing to come into the line-up a pet peeve as well? I like the horses to line up soon after they’re called, but it doesn’t have to be immediate. We’ve all seen classes where they go on too long after the line-up has been called. If you want to go around a couple of times, fine, but come into line after that. It’s all really about trying to keep the show moving.

“The biggest pet peeve I have is when the class is called and nobody comes into the ring. As a judge, my intent is always to be out there when the class is called.”

It makes sense that everyone would want to do what’s best for the show, but can you put it in terms of how getting into the ring in a timely manner works best for the exhibitor? For instance, if you see a horse come through the gate looking like gangbusters, can you “pick your winner” at that moment?

The rules say judging does not commence until the gate is shut, so I wouldn’t say that I pick my winner when they come in the gate. However, for most horses, irrespective of division, I will say that the first ones in the ring are usually brighter. They’re using their ears, and horses that are attentive, especially when they’re in frame and doing what they’re supposed to be doing, are a prettier picture. Why wouldn’t you want the judge to see that (even if I’m not actually judging at that point)? Let me also put it in the context of being the last one in; some exhibitors, for whatever reason, want to be the last one in. One thing I’ve seen happen now and then is worth considering. Everyone is in the ring and waiting, and that last horse comes trotting in and the gate shuts right behind it—and the horse goes off its feet. Now it’s

“Keeping the show moving” applies especially to Nationals. People complain about how long the show takes and how everybody wants to have time off in the evening to enjoy each other’s company. To me, that’s a great reason for us to work together on moving things along.

In halter classes, of course you are able to give every horse a careful examination, but in a well-filled performance class, how much are you actually able to see? Even in a four horse class, if you have more than one judge, you’re not going to see everybody because the judges are watching different parts of the ring. I’ll glance around to make sure everybody is on the correct lead or something like that, but the deeper the competition—the more quality horses you have—if you’re really going to evaluate them, you’re going to be evaluating what’s in Volume 43, No. 5 | 131


your line of sight at the time. There is absolutely no doubt that you may not be seeing what can be happening in another section of the ring, and that’s something people have to recognize. I make a point of giving everybody a look—a legitimate look. Even if I know that a horse isn’t rising to the top of the class, it deserves a look. And not just a glance; it deserves to be looked at, just like anybody else. That may confirm that it’s not at the top of my class, but I still look at it. You don’t just pick the ones you think are best and look only at them, although sometimes it may be necessary, for instance, to make a comparison between two for a particular placing.

What would you say to exhibitors about ring position? You want to be seen, but you don’t need to be hugging the middle. People have a tendency to ride the middle, because they think that’s all the judges will see, but that makes the ring smaller. For example, Canada has a smaller ring, so when people start riding the middle and cutting off the turns, they’re cutting 30 or 40 feet off the end of the arena. Don’t think that gives the judge a better view, because we can’t get a good view of a horse that is too close to us.

132 | A r A bI A n Hor SE T I mES

There is also the issue of safety. I’ve never actually been run over, but I’ve definitely had to get out of an exhibitor’s way, usually because a horse was not in control or reacting to something happening in the ring. What makes me nervous is that if horses are cutting close to me, and there is a horse on the outside of them that all of the sudden jumps or swishes its tail or something, the reaction of the horses closest is to jump too. They’re going to land right on you. That’s why it is not safe to ride too close to the judges. You might think you are in control of your horse, but you’re not in control of a horse on the outside of you. And think about it: as exhibitors, you want the judge to be looking at the horses. You don’t want them to be worrying about whether they need to move out of the way. So, just watch the other horses in the ring and position yourself to your best advantage, but remember that that doesn’t necessarily mean being closer to the judge.

Does show attire make any difference in how you see a horse and exhibitor team? I’m judging the horses and I really don’t pay attention to the attire. Unless the attire is extremely bad or really ill-fitting, I’m not going to notice it. So, if your attire complements your horse and is not distracting, that is


the ultimate goal, in my opinion. It is a horse show, not a people show. How the horse looks is another matter. A horse that is well-conditioned and clean, with a good hair coat, makes for a better picture. Periodically we’ll see horses that are simply under-conditioned—underweight, under body tone, not in physical shape to be doing what they’re doing. That doesn’t make a good picture. Fortunately, we don’t see that often, particularly at a national level.

In your career in Arabian horses, not just as a judge, are there horses and performances that stand out in your memory? There have been so many over the years that I can’t really name them all. Some of the halter horses just took your breath away, and there were some really outstanding performance horses. I attended my first Arabian Nationals in 1970 or 1971, and I showed for the first time in 1973 at U.S. Nationals. Things have changed so very, very much since then. I can remember being in my late teens or early 20s, and walking by Khemosabi’s stall at night and he was right there, no drapes. He was a national champion in halter and performance—he was a legend—and I just stood by his stall and he stuck his little muzzle through the bars. (He had a beautiful head and a very fine muzzle.) He’d come right over and just look at you. It was a privilege to see him. We don’t really have that kind of opportunity now.

Pleasure class. It was the first work-off at a national show because we had just passed the rule allowing it—and it was phenomenal. It was an experience I’ll never forget, standing in center ring with the crowd going crazy and three exceptionally talented horses working off. The horses were Adams Fire with Joel Kiesner, SA Rapid Fire with Jim Stachowski, and Cool Night with Tish Kondas. Adams Fire won, Rapid Fire was reserve, and Cool Night was third. It was probably because it was a small ring and there were people all around on the rail, but there was so much energy and so much noise that it made the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

I have to say that one special memory was judging the U.S. Nationals the first year we were in Tulsa, when we had a three-horse work-off in the Half-Arabian English

At Youth Nationals in particular, I’ve seen some really good, kind Arabians taking wonderful care of their youth riders, and that brings as much joy to me as seeing the

“I can remember being in my late teens or early 20s, and walking by Khemosabi’s stall at night and he was right there, no drapes. He was a national champion in halter and performance—he was a legend—and I just stood by his stall and he stuck his little muzzle through the bars.” superstars. They’re just good horses that pull those little walk/trot riders around and teach them something and give them a great experience. We see so many wonderful horses at all levels of competition. Some are great on a national level, some are great teachers, and some are kind horses that put in great performances. I hate to name specific horses because just like anything else, you name some and then you’ve left out some that were equally deserving and equally memorable.

Is there anything left in Arabians that you haven’t done, and still want to do? Of course. If time and money were not an issue, I’d love to try reining and/or cutting, because those are wonderful disciplines, but I just haven’t had the opportunity. And I wish that my circumstances were such that I could do more breeding, but I’m not in that position. I specifically have limited myself to a four-stall barn. I’ve raised a few foals over the years, but that’s not where I’m putting my energies now.

Clearly, you have devoted a lot of your life to the Arabian horse. Why?

Inevitable question: where are we as an industry right now? Do you think we have found a direction, or are we still searching?

Because I have a passion for the Arabian horse. They are beautiful, intelligent, loving creatures, and I enjoy being whinnied to every morning when I go out to the barn. (One of my horses is a very loud whinnier!) I also enjoy being with people who share that passion, because we can understand one another.

I think that we are recognizing that the Arabian horse industry, much like all of the equine industries, is in a challenging time because of changes in our economy, and changes in our youth and how they spend their recreational time. Because of that, I think that we are at a rebuilding, rejuvenating point in our industry. I think that

we suffered the downturns from the economy, and that we are now working and recognizing that we all need to work together in a positive fashion to keep this breed and association alive and vital.

What are the top five issues that the American Arabian horse community needs to address in order of urgency according to Van Jacobsen?

together in a united front, we will help this breed regain the momentum it so richly deserves.

“I think that we suffered the downturns from the economy, and that we are now working and recognizing that we all need to work together in a positive fashion to keep this breed and association alive and vital.”

The number one is that in all the things we do as Arabian horse owners, enthusiasts and exhibitors, we need to concentrate on positive action that is united for the Arabian horse community. If we do that, the problems will resolve themselves. We won’t need to identify a top five. If we all put the best interest of the Arabian horse at the top of the list and all agree to work

If you could speak to all the halter exhibitors who will appear before you at U.S. Nationals, what advice would you give them?

I would say, “Show your horse to its best advantage within the parameters of the rules.” Most exhibitors know that, but we do see people who push the envelope. We want the best horse to win; I don’t want to have to penalize the best horse because it is showing intimidation, an unnatural tail, aggression, etc. (Under our halter rules, we have a number of penalty categories.) So don’t put your horse in a penalty situation. We want the best horse to win. n Volume 43, No. 5 | 135

as the sire, because of his beauty and temperament. For the dam, I would choose a Half-Arabian mare I bred, Dream Catcher (Phi Slama Jama (ASB) x Imaginnation, by First Class) who produced a *Khadraj NA colt for me in April. The mare died six weeks later, but the colt is fine. If you could choose any horse, dead or alive, to exhibit in amateur competition, who would you pick, and why? I would choose the Half-Arabian mare I am now showing, L. Millana (Millano x Bullish On Doc (AQHA)). I bought her as a 2-year-old from Mario Zerlotti. Josh Quintus has developed her, and she is one of the most wonderful horses I have ever ridden.

What is your most embarrassing horse show moment? Losing a rein at the canter in a western class at Region 7. The horse, Magance, just kept on cantering. Then he walked and quietly went into the center when they saw what had happened and called a timeout. He was a good boy! He is in his 20s now, and lives with me with two other of my retired show horses. What other hobbies/interests do you have outside of Arabian horses? I am an author, lecturer, and teacher.

Not having any horse experience, he had forgotten to make any

Luckily, there was a wonderful place not far from our home, and they took all of us in. The owner’s daughter rode Baby Doll while I tried (unsuccessfully) to turn my grey Appaloosa cutting horse into a Lipizzaner! My true introduction to Arabians came about 30 years later when another kind soul, Susan White, took me in after selling me my first Arabian named Khamolot. Susan and I went on to share in the true joy of showing a second Arabian, Dahzzle, and that experience changed my life forever. Thank you again Susan! Now I have the third Arabian and true love of my life—Andy, aka, EVG Andreas. Why do you own/exhibit Arabian horses? Each and every one of them has brought me immeasurable joy in owing and exhibiting. What is the best advice your trainer has ever given you? Christine Johnston taught me to prepare myself for showing, but to believe in my horse. If you could choose any horse, dead or alive, to exhibit in amateur competition, who would you pick, and why? I would still pick to show the one I have, my buddy, Andy.

What is your most embarrassing horse show moment? I have at least two most embarrassing moments. At my first Class A show, I swear I heard the announcer tell us to, “Reverse at the canter,” so I made a nice big circle, and then circled again when I noticed no one else was changing directions. I knew nothing about flying lead changes so did not know that you don’t ever, ever, reverse at the canter in a pleasure class. I was just going to do what the announcer told me to do! Over the last 5 years, I have learned a few things, but my second embarrassing moment came this past summer when I won Region 15 Reserve Champion in the Hunter Pleasure AAOTR 40+ class.

I so badly wanted a good victory pass photo to celebrate the moment that I made my victory pass before I even got my garland and ribbons! I was reminded over the loudspeaker system to go back and get the roses, and then told when it was time to make the “real” victory pass. What other hobbies/interests do you have outside of Arabian horses? Since owning and showing Andy, I have been incredibly fortunate to be surrounded with true friends and wonderful people. My life is so full; I really don’t need anything else.

A little later, my 4-H advisor was the barn manager for the Ohio Buckeye in the mid-1970s and recruited a few of us to help out as horses arrived in the late evenings and early mornings before the show began. Watching the horses unload and relax in their stalls gave me a first-hand view of these amazing creatures just hanging out and being themselves. I was hooked!

Why do you own/exhibit Arabian horses? There isn’t just one simple answer to this question. I ride because I love the horses and I love what they have taught me over the years. There is no place I feel more at home than the show ring, and I can only hope that riding and showing Arabian horses will always be a part of my life. What is the best advice your trainer has ever given you? Anymore, it isn’t really what is said or unsaid. For me, just before I go into the show ring, the best thing a trainer can be is composed and confident in my horse and me. Their calmness and support gives me the greatest reassurance in my abilities as a rider. If you could choose any horse, dead or alive, to exhibit in amateur competition, who would you pick, and why? Honestly, I’ll take what I can get. Throw a horse at me; I’ll probably be thrilled to ride it!

After I married, had three children and earned a degree in nursing, I decided that I wanted an academic experience related to horses. In 2002 I enrolled in the Horse Management Program at Michigan State University. This is where I was introduced to the Arabian horse. Why do you own/exhibit Arabian horses? Since 2002, I have purchased five Arabian horses from the Spring Sale held at MSU. I rode two of the horses for a short time and sold them to young girls as trail riding/4-H horses. I still own the other three, all of which have been successful Class A show horses. Why do I exhibit? I have met a lot of really nice people in the horse industry, some of which are now like family. I enjoy the camaraderie, the opportunity to continue learning, and the experience of riding and showing smart, talented horses. 142 | A R A BI A n HoR SE T I MES

If you could select the sire and dam of your next show horse, who would you choose and why? I don’t know much about pedigrees. I would have to consult someone with that expertise.

What is your most embarrassing horse show moment? I learned the hard way that in competition, you “complete the maneuver.” If you are at the walk and decide to circle for better position when the judge asks the horses to halt, it is in your best interest to complete the circle before halting your horse. If you do not, you will be the only one facing the opposite direction—this is not a good thing. Never will that happen on purpose again.

If you could choose any horse, dead or alive, to exhibit in amateur competition, who would you pick, and why? Balenciaga is a 4-year-old junior western horse owned by Sandy and John Zuccarini, and shown by Zach Powell. I think he is amazing. Not only is he talented and beautiful to look at, he is very sound-minded.

What other hobbies/interests do you have outside of Arabian horses? Photography, sailing, cooking, and travel.

Robin Porter

Name: Farm: Crescent

Trainer: Rooker Training Stable How were you introduced to Arabian horses, and how many years have you been involved with Arabian horses? I have been involved with Arabian horses my entire life. My parents owned Cameo Arabians when I was growing up, and I have continued to be involved with Arabians ever since.

Creek Farms, LLC and Colonial Wood Training Center

Why do you own/exhibit Arabian horses? I own Arabian horses because they are a great breed— beautiful and highly intelligent. Their versatility is amazing and have a lot to offer every rider. What is the best advice your trainer has ever given you? Look up! I get this from all of my trainers. It is amazing what happens when you look up. If you could select the sire and dam of your next show horse, who would you choose? I have two: SF Specs Shocwave and TMZ Kitty—I already have one of these combinations and would love to recreate this; and Apollopalooza and Sophisticated Lady. They are both amazing park horses, and I would love to show this great package. If you could choose any horse, dead or alive, to exhibit in amateur competition, who would you pick? Apollopalooza. I want to ride and exhibit a great park horse, and he was my favorite. He was an amazing individual.

What is your most embarrassing horse show moment? I was little but I showed with my reins crossed. What other hobbies/interests do you have outside of Arabian horses? My husband and I love to travel and experience the world!

Kelley Ramsey

Name: Farm: Dune Drift Arabians Trainer Affiliation: Krichke Training Center DD Mars Psyche, and he is doing very well. His sister is surely a hard act to follow, but he is even better than her in some ways and I believe will have just as much success in the show ring. What is the best advice your trainer has ever given you? I would have to say patience—waiting for everything to come together so that it is just right. If you could select the sire and dam of your next show horse, who would you choose and why? I would stay with my current program. I love the Dornaba tail-female line, and it crosses very well with Magnum Psyche. After all, it is true as they say, “Don’t fix it if it isn’t broke.”

How were you introduced to Arabian horses, and how many years have you been involved with Arabian horses? I was first introduced to the Arabian horse by a friend. He took me to my first horse show, which was the Buckeye in Ohio. Magnum Psyche was, I believe, a 2-year-old at that show. I fell instantly in love with the Arabian and set out to find a nice mare to breed to Magnum. I’ve been involved with Arabians for 18 years. Why do you own/exhibit Arabian horses? I’ve always been an animal lover and worshiped horses from afar as a child. I always thought that I’d own a horse some day. The first foal I ever bred was sired by Magnum and out of my Marsianin daughter. She had a beautiful filly, DD Crown Jewel. We took her to Scottsdale as a yearling, and she took second in her class of 54 fillies. I was instantly hooked on the adrenalin rush and competition of showing horses. She went on to be a National Champion Mare and Scottsdale Grand Champion Mare. Now I’m showing her full sibling,

If you could choose any horse, dead or alive, to exhibit in amateur competition, who would you pick, and why? Undoubtedly, Jewel Drift. Her blood runs through the veins of all of my horses and I love them all. Showing her would be the biggest honor that could ever be bestowed upon me. She was a great mare that was true to her breeding. What is your most embarrassing horse show moment? My most embarrassing show moment was at a class A show. There were only three horses in my class and my horse was a total donkey on that day! We came in last place when we should have been in the blue. What other hobbies/interests do you have outside of Arabian horses? It’s hard to find time to have other interests in addition to horses. But, when I get the chance, I love to fish! When I’m fishing, I leave everything else behind. It’s very relaxing to me; yet, I love the rush of hooking into a big “pig” and landing it. It’s almost as much fun as winning a horse show!

Why do you own/exhibit Arabian horses? Their beauty, athleticism, and their personalities are really what have drawn me to the breed, and now that I’m hooked, I don’t think I can ever stop! What is the best advice your trainer has ever given you? Ride it like you stole it! If you could select the sire and dam of your next show horse, who would you choose and why? While I don’t have a lot of experience or knowledge in the area, from what I have seen and experienced in and out of the show ring, I think Undulata’s Nutcracker and a dam out of SF Specs Shocwave would create a horse with incredible motion and a great mind! If you could choose any horse, dead or alive, to exhibit in amateur competition, who would you pick, and why? I think it would be amazing to be able to show MHR

From The Table

Living On Tulsa Time by Jeff Tracy

Barn parties are an integral part of horse show life—or at least they were when I was competing, in the previous century. Friday and Saturday nights our shows were usually filled with music, food and fun. Yes, there were beverages that sometimes made Saturday and Sunday mornings a bit rough, but it was all worth it. I was the unlucky recipient of bad ice on more than one occasion, but still managed never to miss a class. October is the month when the U. S. Nationals, in Tulsa, Okla., takes the stage for Arabian horses. The yearly coronation of our national champions is a fun and sometimes lengthy event. If you are there, competing or not, you’ll be living on Tulsa time—although not exactly like the Eric Clapton/Don Williams song. If you’re an exhibitor, days are sometimes long, starting early for a practice session with your charge(s) and trainer (if applicable), all the while bravely trying to keep your nerves and emotions in check. An educated guess would be that you may not have thought about a really good meal in the last two or three days. I mean, a relaxing, quiet setting with great food and perhaps a glass or two of fine Cabernet, seasoned with great conversation. A social setting designed to calm the nerves, level the brainwaves, and add a touch of reality to the mindset. Unfortunately, you probably do not have the time for the aforementioned dream sequence so might I suggest a good old-fashioned barn party BBQ? Not the kind where 500 to 1,000 of your closest friends are trolling for free food and drinks, as we all have seen many times in the past. Think in terms of something different: a party, without fanfare or swagger. A barn party that is semi-private, considerate of neighboring barns, and does not break the bank is the ticket. This time, consider inviting no more than 10 people, yourself included. Keep it small, if possible, so you can enjoy the 148 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

festivities and benefit from some downtime. (This would include turning off your cell phone and not reading the judges’ cards from the preliminary rounds. The latter will only make you crazy, I guarantee it.) Keep your menu simple; you don’t have a full kitchen to work with. Steaks are always a favorite. They are easy to grill without too much mess and very little fuss. I recommend T-bones or rib eyes. It is hard to go wrong with these basic bovine selections. It is fall, so there is fresh corn on the cob, which is also easy to grill. The last suggestion would be a grilled tomato topped with feta and bacon. I served this to the judges in Scottsdale a couple of years ago, and they ate all of them with no complaints. I take that as a compliment, because trust me, they are a tough audience.


Throw in some potato salad, green salad or coleslaw, along with a few condiments, and get ready for a feast. You will not need ketchup unless you invite Gene LaCroix to the party (I’ll explain that in another story). If you don’t have a BBQ, check with the motor home commandos. One of them surely will have a grill you can

borrow for a couple of hours. Just make sure the gas tank is full when you return it. Beverages will be required, of course. Select what suits your palate. Just remember, you do have to perform in the Ford, Mustang or Dome Arena at some point. And watch out for that bad ice I spoke to you about earlier!

Grilled T-Bone Steaks

4 T-bone steaks about 1 inch thick (12oz.) Salt and pepper Worcestershire sauce (Lea & Perrins®) Steak Rub (optional) Butter Olive oil Rule of thumb: for medium rare steaks, figure on grilling four to six minutes on each side. If you want yours rare or well-done, adjust the cooking times in this recipe to suit. Preheat grill to high. Place steaks on a platter and let them warm to room temperature. Season steaks evenly on both sides with salt and pepper or your favorite rub. Brush grill grate with olive oil prior to placing steaks on grill.

Place steak on grill. After two minutes, brush about one teaspoon of Worcestershire on each steak. Finish grilling bottom side, about four more minutes. Flip the steak and repeat the process. One minute before the steak is finished, spread a small amount of butter on the steak. When the butter is melted, flip the steak and let it stay on the grill for about 30 to 45 seconds more. This will cause the steak to sizzle. Caution—your grill will probably flame up a bit at this point. Remove the steaks and let them rest for one to two minutes before serving. This recipe will work for rib eyes or other cuts.

If your grill has two racks (upper and lower), use the upper rack when preparing this recipe. If you have a shallow plan, make sure it fits on the upper rack of your grill and place the prepared tomato in the pan. If there is no pan, use aluminum foil. Fold a large piece of foil in half several times until it is thick enough to hold the tomato steady on the grill.

Preheat your grill to a medium high. Cut tomato in half, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread one-half teaspoon of horseradish on the tomato. Cover each tomato half with one layer of bacon. Cover the bacon with sliced feta. Grill for four to six minutes or so, until golden brown. Sprinkle with chives and serve. *If you have all-beef bacon available, use that instead of regular pork bacon. It works great. You can precook the bacon on the grill. Use the upper rack and lay the strips out across the rack like you would in a regular pan. Caution—there will be a lot of drippings so watch for flare ups.

Carrying over from last year’s good vibes, the high jinx at this year’s show included overnight furniture-moving pranks at Jim Lowe’s stalls, a mechanical spider roaming the halls outside the show office, and an impromptu ride-

Park classes notwithstanding, Sellman had a truly stellar show with the honor of handling both the Canadian National Champion Mare and Stallion to their respective wins. This year’s National Champion Stallion honors went to perennial favorite LD Pistal, a Magnum Psyche son owned by Carlos and Christiane Roizner. This win marks the sixth national championship claimed by the smoking hot chestnut stallion, who was Canadian Junior Champion Stallion in 2004. National Reserve Champion Stallion was awarded to the bay Gazal Al Shaqab son Brixx IA, who managed to throw an unfortunate shoe on

his way through the warm-up ring. Jeff Schall was on the lead for HB Arabians. National Champion Mare honors went to Zahara El Marwan, owned by Jo Rae Richardson and Charles Steger of Falls Creek, Penn. Part of the allure of halter classes is seeing up-andcoming stars of the breed, and this year’s Canadian Nationals did not disappoint. Much of the halter buzz was focused around Luxemere Jizette, a Versace granddaughter (through KM Bugatti) who took the championship in the Futurity Fillies class with the highest halter score of the show, a combined total of 359. Owned by Anthony Marino and Anthony Marino Jr.,

of Birmingham, Ala., and shown to the win by David Boggs, the stunning grey filly gave a guest interview to news cameras outside the ring after her class. Champion in the Futurity Colts went to Sir Marwan CRF for Cedar Ridge Farms, led once again by Andy Sellman. This year’s Canadian Nationals boasted four new halter classes in the form of Yearling Championships for purebred and Half-Arabian Fillies and Colts/Geldings. Brought to fruition through the hard work of Murray Popplewell and the vision of sponsors Canadian Crane and Rae-Dawn Arabians, the Yearling Championships offer prize money to the tune of a $5,000 payout in each of the purebred classes and a $2,500 pot for partbreds.

Though the Half-Arabian classes had a starting slate of only four yearlings each, the purebred classes were well attended, with 10 fillies and 11 colts gracing the ring. This could be an excellent chance for next year’s local crop of Half-Arabians to step up to the plate for a shot at the prize money. Top purebred honors in the inaugural Yearling Championships went to Sultan ORA for the colts/ geldings (led by Andrew Sellman for owners Anthony Marino and Anthony Marino Jr.) and to Star Of Justice ORA for the fillies (led by Alcides Rodrigues for Oak Ridge Arabians of Freeport, Ill.). Both winning youngsters were bred by Oak Ridge Arabians.

Two other notable halter wins for the boys will be staying in Canada—imported Polish stallion Empres took home Champion Sport Horse Stallion for owner Prue Critchley of Hamiota, Manitoba, and Morning Sun Arabians’ Spitfyre VF claimed the purebred Stallions AAOTH class with owner Mike Steenhart on the lead. As in halter, the western divisions saw a number of competitors hit a good run of luck (brought about, as always, by a ton of preparation and hard work!). Joe Reser of Setting Sun Stables took home the championship in Western Pleasure on his Desperado V son Klint Black,


and won the Half-Arabian Western Pleasure title on Jo Money for owners Annge and Dave Daugherty. Reser capped off his week with a unanimous championship in the Half-Arabian Western Pleasure Junior Horse class aboard Ima Rockin Pop Star, owned by Rick and Karen Bliha. Double reining championships were once again claimed by VLQ Friendly Fire, with trainer LaRae Fletcher Powell, in the purebred open class and with amateur owner Alison Mostowich of Calgary, Alberta, in the AAOTR 18-39. These wins add up to an astounding 12 national championships in open and amateur reining for the red chestnut gelding affectionately known as “Fireman.” Mostowich and Fletcher Powell took home reserve in both classes as well, aboard Phoenix CA, owned by Katie Mostowich. Not to be denied in

Half-Arabian Reining, Fletcher Powell rode to the championship aboard BSF Starbuck for owner Michelle Pease-Paulsen of Tacoma, Wash., and Mostowich took reserve in the AOTR aboard CA Just Plain Fancy. In the English divisions, Baske Is A Genius started the show with a bang, claiming a unanimous win in the HalfArabian Driving AOTD with owner Paul Heiman for the second year in a row. And spectators had the chance to watch a legend in action as Americanbeautie, piloted by Gordon Potts, took first place roses in Half-Arabian Country Pleasure open. The mare also went reserve in Half-Arabian Country Pleasure Select with Leslie Doran Sommer riding for Shamrock Farms LLC. Thanks to a rule change, this year’s Select classes were some of the largest classes of the show.

Part of the charm of Canadian Nationals is the mix of open, amateur and youth classes on offer, and this year’s Youth division showed a truly admirable mix of competition, fun, and camaraderie.

Faith Seward and her homebred gelding RB Curtain Call had a show to remember, taking a total of three championships back home to Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta—Half-Arabian Country JTR and JOTR 17 & Under, and Saddle Seat Equitation JTR 14-17. In the


purebred classes, FSF Loaded Gun and Drue Landay won the Country Pleasure JOTR, picked up a reserve in Country JTR, and added another championship in English Show Hack JTR. Isobelle Ehret also had three championships in the Youth division, but achieved her wins on three different horses—her own Kindred Spirits in Country English Pleasure JTR, brother Carson’s Isabella HA in English Show Hack JTR, and Chelsie Shamuhn’s Scotty So Hotty in Half-Arabian English Pleasure JTR. Isobelle added to her total with a reserve championship aboard Shes Got Allotta (owned by Pat Portas) in the HalfArabian Hunter Pleasure JTR 14-17.

Olivia Boggs and Shariah Star of Osseo, Minn., were champions in Western Horsemanship JTR 14-17 and Western Pleasure JOTR 17 & Under, settling for reserve in the Western Pleasure JTR class. Purebred Western Pleasure championships in JTR and JOTR 14-17 went to Paige Nolte and Beystarrs Kadance of Waconia, Minn. If you’re looking for sport horse, youth, open and amateur classes all under the same roof, with more than a dash of fun thrown in alongside, consider making the trek to Canadian Nationals next August.

Leaders Of The Times: October Calendar Feature

Eccentric Valentino

Eccentric Valentino (DA Valentino x Ameila B)

“Eccentric Valentino gives me, in a way, a great responsibility,” says owner Luciana Fasano, of Fazenda Floresta, in São Paulo, Brazil. “That is, to breed good foals. He is a great son of DA Valentino, from a daughter of Magnum Psyche. I see that as a very nice responsibility.” That pedigree is a lot to live up to. DA Valentino, who died prematurely in 2011 at the age of 8, was a six-time national champion, and Eccentric Valentino’s dam, Amelia B, has a national championship and three national reserve championships on her record. “This is a very important thing,” Fasano says, referring to the strong female presence in Eccentric Valentino’s bloodlines. “He has an amazing mother by Magnum. I have seen in Argentina, with my own eyes, what Magnum has done and is still doing with his mares—the sons and daughters he is siring.” 170 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

That Eccentric Valentino lives up to his potential already has been proven. As a yearling, he was a U.S. National Top Ten; following that with the title of Canadian National Reserve Champion 2-Year-Old Colt and Canadian National Champion Futurity Colt. In 2011, he was named U.S. National Champion Stallion 4-5 Years Old and U.S. National Reserve Champion Senior Stallion. This year, he added the award of Scottsdale Champion Classic Arabian 5-Year-Old Stallion. As a breeding stallion, Eccentric Valentino has had limited exposure to date. He was bred sparingly during the years that his show career was the focus, a situation that is changing as Fasano looks to the contribution he will make to the breed. “Now I have to go to the next step,” she says, “which is to translate what my stallions have shown in the ring, and that is to breed good foals. My responsibility is quality control—not to make sure


with Rinaldo Longuini. Fasano is careful to credit former trainer Rodolfo Guzzo for his contribution to the stallion’s career thus far—and his role in her own love for the breed. “When I bought Eccentric, I was with Guzzo,” she notes, “and I never forget these things. What made me become the person that I am in Arabian horses was [my other stallion] AAS-Elishahh and Rodolfo Guzzo. I am very grateful.” Another on her list to thank is David Boggs. She first saw Eccentric at Midwest, and Boggs, who led the colt to many of his titles, played an inf luential role in Eccentric’s career, as well as Fasano’s increasing presence as an Arabian owner. Now, a new chapter is opening. “I’m very happy to be with Rinaldo,” she says. “He’s a wonderful person, and the team that works at Longuini Training Center is really perfect. They are very efficient, and I’m very happy.”

that I’m selling breedings like crazy, but to make sure that I’m selling breedings to the right mares.” She has seen what Eccentric Valentino has sired, and is firm in her belief that he has a great deal to offer the Arabian industry, both in North and South America and in Europe as well. That one stallion might meet the requirements of breeders in both Europe and the Americas might sound unusual, she admits, but it is her opinion. And a few stallions already do that—just not enough of them. “A good combination for the Arabian horse is combining what the Americans have done with what Europe and the Middle East has done,” Fasano observes. “We don’t have to look at each other anymore and say, ‘this is a European horse’ or ‘this is an American horse.’ We need to say, ‘this is a good Arabian horse.’” For the moment, the first order of business is Eccentric Valentino’s upcoming appearance at the Brazilian Nationals, where he will show for the first time

She is also happy to have Eccentric Valentino home. “I really want my horses next to me, to feel their energy, to see their different character,” she says. “I want to be with them. Now Eccentric is here in Brazil, so Brazilian breeders can see him. He has work to do here, and then we will see what the market is asking him to do. I will do what the Arabian horse is asking for.” Again, she reflects on the responsibility of owning an Arabian with the potential to influence the breed for the better. Despite that she loves having her horses close to her, Fasano does not retreat from her overall commitment to the breed. “Maybe down the road he can go to Europe; that sounds a little crazy, but you never know,” she muses. “I want him to do what is best for the breed. He will retire home, always. But he can visit the best breeders, wherever they are. The only request I have is that they would take care of him with love, as I would at home. “What drives me is to see not what is good for me or good for you,” she emphasizes, “but what is good for the Arabian horse. Eccentric Valentino is a part of that plan. He has brought me a great joy and now we are ready to show Brazil who he is.” n Volume 43, No. 5 | 171


2012

Iowa Gold Star

Futurity Horse sHow by Jessica Maldonado Viva Des Moines! With a Vegas-inspired theme, Iowa once again rolled out the red carpet to a world-wide audience of Arabian horse enthusiasts as it hosted the 2012 Iowa Gold Star Futurity and Fall Classic Horse show during Labor Day weekend. With approximately 300 horses and thousands of exhibitors and spectators, the five-day horse show featured not only great competition, but a stallion service auction, progressive barn party, sponsored meals, and a variety of entertainment. With its track record for fun and its competitive Vegas theme, the show kicked off on Thursday with not only two sessions of great classes, but a progressive barn party and arguably the most popular entertainment at the show—dog races! Featuring three highlycompetitive heats, the grand championship was won by a lightning-fast Jack Russell hailing from Texas. New this year, the stallion auction started online to enable anyone around the world to participate. All purebred lots reaching $1,500 and all Half-Arabian lots reaching $750 online then qualified for the live auction in Des Moines at the Marriott Downtown. All other lots remained open for an additional week to allow for extra promotion and bidding opportunities. This format turned out to be quite a success with new bidders participating from all over the

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

country, and even new winning bidders from Europe. In addition to selling a total of 102 top-tier stallion breedings in the purebred and Half-Arabian auctions, the auction party featured a rousing “Pianopalooza” show featuring Iowa’s own talented Tony Bohenkamp and Megan Hill. As an added incentive to breeders, winning bidders on auction night also were entered into a door prize drawing for a chance to enter the “Vegas Vault” for an opportunity to grab some cash. Three lucky bidders went home with not only a world-class stallion breeding, but also a little cash in their pocket! Speaking of money, prize money was abundant at the show with approximately $200,000 up for grabs in the Gold Star Futurity halter and performance classes. The 2012 Champion Auction Purebred Yearling Filly and Colt took home a whopping $19,040 each, and the reserve filly and colt each took home $9,520 respectively. For Iowa breeders Brad and Shelley Button, the dream of breeding a Gold Star Futurity Champion came to reality this year when their filly Thee Vitoria (Vitorio TO x Thee Diana) won the Gold Star Fillies Yearling Open class with Austin Boggs at the lead. “I will never forget Doug Shane announcing, ‘Your 2012 Iowa Gold Star Open Yearling Filly Champion…. #509


Thee Vitoria and Austin Boggs!’” Shelley said. “I had always dreamt of those roses. What a dream come true!” Due to the overwhelming success of the 3- and 4-year-old futurity English Pleasure Jackpot classes in 2011, similar jackpot classes were added for 3-year-old western horses and were sponsored graciously by Tamar Arabians and Show Ready. These classes were a great opportunity to get futurity horses in the ring before nationals and each had $500 in added prize money! The Gold Star was excited to welcome numerous new stallions to the stallion lineup, including Aafanazi SF, Audacious PS, Al Hadiyah AA, Bey Ali WF, De Beers,

Destinyed Valentino, Goldmount Royal Design, JJ Cohiba, Jullyen El Jamaal, KM Bugatti, Legacys Renoir, Mastark, Mazziah, MS Khasanova, NYN Hisani, OFW Wan and Only, PA Gazsi, Pogrom, Rubicons Moonlit Motion, TF Psymreeke, and Vegaz. Any get already on the ground by new Gold Star stallions were also eligible to be originally nominated into the program and show. Ken Knipe, owner of the multi-National Champion English Pleasure stallion Vegaz was able to take advantage of this initiative by also nominating the Vegaz daughter Fistful of Diamondz (Vegaz x MD Pro’s Aequus) into the futurity, who then went on to win the Gold Star English Pleasure Open class with trainer Chris Wilson in the irons. “We enjoyed our first trip to the Iowa Gold Star!” said Ken Knipe. “Great facility, excellently managed show, great horses, and more fun than one should have at a horse show! I enjoyed both the halter and performance horses, and got to witness some great horses and great presentations. I look forward to coming to the show again in the future!”

Another annual tradition at the Gold Star Show is to honor both a Breeder of Significance and a Sire of Significance from the Arabian industry that has impacted not only the breed as a whole, but the Iowa Gold Star Futurity. This year’s Breeder of Significance was awarded to Jerland Farms. Originally inspired by “The Black Stallion” and nurtured by such formidable names as the Gaineys, the Burtons, and the Blasers, Larry Jerome has been breeding Arabian and Half-Arabian horses for the better part of 40 years. The success of this program is becoming ever more clear with the Jerland-bred horses garnering titles in Scottsdale, Las Vegas, numerous Regionals, Nationals and International show arenas around the world. In addition, Jerland Farms’ stallions MPA Giovanni, *Khadraj NA, and Bellagio J have made their presence known at the Iowa Gold Star Futurity with winning get too numerous to count in both the halter and performance arenas. Jerland is owned by Larry and Shelley Jerome and managed by their daughter and son-in-law, Indira and Mike Van Handel.

The 2012 Sire of Significance was awarded to DS Major Afire (Afire Bey V x S S Magnolia). Owned by Jennifer Patterson of Glenbrook, Nev., DS Major Afire stands at Mike Neal Arabian Center LLC in Delavan, Wis. Through his sire, DS Major Afire carries the championproducing bloodlines of the world-famous Varian breeding program. DS Major Afire’s dam is the National Champion-producing mare S S Magnolia who combines the strength, substance and athleticism of the Spanish lines through her sire, AN Magno, with the beauty and refinement of the Egyptian lines through her dam, SS Soufianna. S S Magnolia contributed the best of these qualities to her son. The Gold Star Futurity has been fortunate to have DS Major Afire in its stallion lineup for many years, and has seen the impact he has made on the show ring. His progeny have won championships in halter and performance in both the purebred and Half-Arabian divisions. He was well represented this year by the purebred hunter Concerto In E Major who accepted the roses in honor of his sire.

Thermal Waters, Party and Beautiful Arabian Horses

text and photos: Rogério Santos

auá Grande Hotel in Araxá, in the Brazilian State of Minas Gerais, hosted in the last August 17 and 18, for the fourth time, the Ouro de Minas do Cavalo Árabe. The elegant and traditional hotel, with its sought-for thermal wells of sulfurous and radioactive waters, hosts one of the biggest touristic appealing shows in Brazil, not only for the hotel’s attractions, but especially for the great party with dinner and presentation of horses, offered to visitors by Leandro Aguiar’s Haras Cruzeiro. This year, the show was judged by German Frank Spönle, American Greg Knowles and Australian Mark Wharton. The judgment followed a system of scores, a method adopted by few shows in Brazil.

T

The son of Marwan Al Shaqab, RHR Marcedes, Champion Futurity Colt of the Canadian National and recently imported by Salim Mattar’s Haras Sahara, was the Champion Stallion of the show. The mother of the Champion, Ellegant Dream, is a daugther of Magic Dream by Ali Jamaal. The Reserve Championship went for Vaillant Rach of Saliba family’s Rach Stud. Vaillant is a son of Mister Eros HX by Pavel Rach (Armagnac) and his mother Violla Rach is a daughter of the National Brazilian Champion *Eksport, imported from Poland. RHR Marcedes and Vaillant Rach reached the same score, 329, but in the Championship Knowles and Wharton voted for Marcedes, and Spönle for Vaillant.

The Mare Championship was decided unanimously. Honey’s Delight RB, in addition to being chosen the Champion by the three judges, had the biggest score in all exhibition (335,5), with 3 scores of 20, one in type (Greg) and two in neck (Greg and Spönle). Honey’s Delight is a daughter of JJ Senor Magnum by Magnum Psyche out of Honeymoon FHP by NV Sure Fire (Aladdinn). She is owned by Eduardo Gama’s Arabians of Santa Ventura. The Reserve also brings Magnum Psyche in the pedigree. Summer Songs, imported from the USA by Salim Mattar’s Haras Sahara, is a daughter of Magnum Psyche out of Solina by Solstice (Salon). Another unanimity was the Champion Colt Cortez LM of Lucio Miranda and his son Tersio’s Haras Paiquere. Cortez is a son of HK Keav Power (Power World), a young sire which is a revelation in Brazilian breeding, with three sons that were National Champions last year. Cortez’s mother, Nyeta LM is a daughter of Shah Jin by Bey Shah. His Reserve was Versace D’Yllan JM, by Yllan El Jamal of Jose and Maisa Alves’ Haras JM. Versace’s mother is the refined Myska JM by Don El Chall. For the first time in track, Haras Cruzeiro presented, to win the Filly Championship, VA Exotika by Alija, one of the beautiful mares that Leandro Aguiar imported from Europe.

Delmar is a son of the Russian Marsianin (American National Champion) by Aswan. Delmar’s mother is Love Melody by Aladdinn, one of the most important Brazilian broodmares.

The Jr. Colt Champion and Reserve Champion are sons of Delmar’s daughters, an important brazilian maternal grandfather from the breeding of Dr. Aloysio Faria’s Fazenda Fortaleza. Eduardo Gama’s Arabians of Santa Ventura won another championship by unanimity, this time with Jr. Colt Farah Al Ventur, son of Lumiar Ibn Balzac, grandson of Lumiar Amadeus, today at Halsdon Arabians. Farah’s mother is AF Fanola, a daughter of Delmar. The Reserve comes from

n the night of Saturday, Leandro Aguiar and André Cruz opened the doors of theirs farm for Haras Cruzeiro’s 3rd Open House, an already traditional event in Brazilian circuit.

I

It was a confraternization moment for the Arabian family, where the 3 judges, Germany’s Frank Spönle, USA’s Greg Knowles, and Australia’s Mark Wharton, were homage by ABCCA (the Brazilian Association of Breeders of Arabian Horses) for their participation in the show. Also, Mrs. Maisa Alves, the wife of Mr. Jose Alves (ABCCA’s president) was homage by Haras Cruzeiro.

The celebration was also an excellent opportunity to appreciate some of the best horses of Haras Cruzeiro’s breeding stock and for good business – sons of Ansata Shaamis and HDB Sihr Ibn Massai, egg-cells from important broodmares of Haras Cruzeiro, such as National Reserve Champions Shariba and Mary Rose, were sold, in addition to the sale of some animals. The main buyers were Haras JM (Jose and Maisa Alves), Mahmud Amer (Jordan), Haras FT (Flavia Torres) Dulce Rosas, Haras Paiquere (Tercio Miranda), Haras Caranda (Paquito Carrasco), Haras Estrela Dalva (Jacyr and Jamys de Freitas) and Haras Stigmatas (Carlos Menezes). ❑

Leo Arabians & Arabian Stud Europe

www.leo-arabians.com - www.arabianstudeurope.com

www.tuttoarabi.com b - TUTTO ARABI | 35


by Sylvia Dirkse Leo Arabians and Arabian Stud Europe is the farm of Simone Leo & Talitha Bakker. Both of them involved with Arabian Horses from an early age, they each founded their own breeding programme. By coincidence or fate as you may call it, they both built their bloodlines on the Brazilian-type Arabian. When Simone Leo and Talitha Bakker got together in early 2011, it was almost natural to join the two breeding programs together and collaborate in breeding even higher quality young stock. The farm of Simone Leo & Talitha Bakker is located on the Dutch/German border, surrounded by forest and nature. The 3ha of green pastures, AI centre and 12 light and airy stables provide a home to the world’s most interesting collection of Arabian horses. Chief sire of the stud is the black stallion Jazzmeen. Fully Brazilian/American bred through his sire world champion Essteem (Fame VF) and his dam Jasmyne (Nyhl el Jamaal). In total, Jazzmeen carries two crosses to Ali Jamaal, two crosses to Bey Shah and two crosses to El Shaklan. It shows in his reproduction. All of his foals have a wide forehead, big dark eyes, a tiny muzzle, a long neck and they all can move like trotting machines. His offspring can be found everywhere in the world. In Brazil, his 3rd generation is born and heading to the Brazilian Nationals this October! Jazzmeen himself is Talitha Bakker’s best friend. Together they participate in Eventing. A sport that requires skills in dressage, show jumping and cross country. Jazzmeen and Talitha find great joy in especially the cross country and like to train outside in the forest or to go for a swim in the lake. During his free time, Jazzmeen shares his field with the mares and foals. He loves the natural life and takes good care of his herd. Another stallion resident at the farm is the three years old ASE Marajó. Homebred and a son of world champion Marajj out of the farm’s champion mare Manilah (Salaa el Dine). Marajó had a great show carreer this season, is a first premium breeding stallion and is now starting his career under saddle. The plan is to compete in endurance next season. Another proof that beauty and performance can go very well together!

The young stallion Don Luciano SL, also homebred and a son of Psyrasic (Psytadel) and out of the foundation mare Mata Hari HY (Lumiar Amadeus) is waiting anxiously to take his place in the breeding barn as well. Born in 2011, this colt had a tremendous show season this year, with two champion titles. He will continue at the triple crown shows in the next months and will then start to breed some carefully selected mares. The mare division of the farm is mainly Brazilian and Egyptian bred. The oldest mare is Gucci bred Estana (Moashiro x Estefania by Ibn Estopa). She is the riding horse of the farm which she enjoys at her fullest. The farm has three foundation mares, that all produced a family line for the farm.

Imeleena

ASE Jazzaree

The longest line is Amal-Chariklia. Her mother Atlantis (Amal) was a broodmare at the farm before her. AmalChariklia is a daughter of Insjallah’s Fayoum (Abakan) and she is currently in foal to GR Marvel (Marwan al Shaqab). Also still resident at the farm is her daughter ASE Brasilia Chariklia. A daughter of the Brazilian sensation Borsalino K, Brasilia was recently been sold to Il Paradiso Stud, Italy. Brasilia has had a good show career of her own and this year produced a stunning filly by Bronze world champion RFI Farid (RFI Maktub), named ASE Bahia Chariklia, who will be retained as a future broodmare as well.

ASE Parissia by Jazz www.tuttoarabi.com - TUTTO ARABI | 39


ASE Dafarida SL

Another important mare for the farm is Manilah. A daughter of Radames II (Salaa el Dine) and out of the famous broodmare Marischka (Plakat) who goes back to Ibn Galal. Besides performing in showjumping and cross country, Manilah was also many times champion in showing and produced four foals. The first one, ASE Bisiriya Hlayyil, is by Bishr (Hlayyil Ramadan) and was Reserve champion at show as a youngster. This year she produced her first foal. An incredible colt by bronze world champion RFI Farid (RFI Maktub). His name is ASE Faraaj and he already won his first champion title, scoring the highest points in movement of the entire show! A big promise for the future! The second foal of Manilah was ASE Maraj贸 by Marajj, who is also still resident at the farm as young breeding stallion. The 3rd foal by Manilah, a filly by Ajman Moniscione named ASE Ajmilah, unfortunately died at birth. Manilah made more than up for it, when she produced her latest foal. An incredible typey filly by Al Ayal AA named ASE Aryelle. With her extremely dished face, she is a typical daughter of Manilah and will also be retained for the future breeding program of the farm.

The mare Mata Hari HY is another great broodmare at the farm. She was imported by Simone Leo from Brazil a few years ago and is producing one champion after the other. Her son Don Luciano SL was twice unanimous gold medal winner this year and is only at the beginning of his career. At the moment, Mata Hari has a colt foal by Hassan Ashiraf at foot, named Don Angelo SL. He already proved to be a real stunner as he also received his first Gold medal in showing. Today, Mata Hari is in foal to World reserve Champion Fadi al Shaqab (Besson Carol) for a 2013 foal. Other mares at the farm are Soraya el Bri (CH el Brillo x Scala el Jamaal), an Austrian National Champion mare & for 2013 in foal to Nader al Shaqab, Lumiar bet Sabe (Lumiar Balzac x Celine Carol), a grey mare still standing in Brazil and currentlyin foal to Mister Style JM (Style SRA) and the recently purchased Geraldyne el Jamaal (Ali Jamaal x Gai Natasha) who is now bred to * El Tino (DA Valentino)

Another mare who was very influential at the stud was the famous *Dakaree (Dakar el Jamaal x Ultimate Fancy). Imported by Talitha Bakker from America years ago, this mare as done a lot for the farm. Earning champion titles in Western pleasure, being named numerously Champion mare at shows and producing stunning offspring. Her son ASE Myandour by Marhaabah (Marwan al Shaqab) has recently been leased to Greece, where he is performing in endurance. Her exquisite look-a-like daughter ASE Jazzaree by Jazzmeen (Essteem), is growing up to be an unbelievable pretty mare and is being retained for the future. This year, Dakaree produced again a beautiful filly named ASE Dafarida SL by RFI Farid (RFI Maktub). For 2013, an embryo was successfully transferred from Dakaree and Fadi al Shaqab. The expectations are high! Dakaree is now sold to Al Shaqab Stud in Qatar, where she will continue her breeding career. We are proud and pleased for Dakaree to have been given such a great opportunity!

Estana

There are also some upcoming youngsters almost ready to take their places in the breeding barn. One of them is Stig Ashirafa (Amir Ashiraf x Evelyne Bay). Bred by Haras Stigmatas from Brazil, this stunning lady with her exotic looks and extreme movement is the next pearl in the breeding barn! At two years old, she is still enjoying her happy life with her friend ASE Rahyeelah el Jary. A homebred bay filly, sired by Jary el Jamaal (Ali Jamaal) and out of Roxana el Bri (CH el Brillo).

Mata Hari HY

Don Angelo SL Another youngster is Gioia by Royal SL, sired by world champion Royal Colours and out of the former champion broodmare of the stud; Magdalena Galaa (WH Justice). Gioia is exotic, big moving with a great attitude. She will be a very interesting show prospect next year! She shares the field with a beautiful black filly named ASE Parissia by Jazz. A daughter of Jazzmeen out of Parnassia by Classic Shadwan, Parissia is the real package. Taking after her mother with her dished face and looking much like daddy with the wide forehead and the big movement, making her an interesting filly to retain for the breeding programme. In his day job, Simone Leo is the publisher of the world famous magazines Tutto Arabi and Desert Heritage. Talitha is working as head of the PR and marketing department at an international architecture and engineering company. They manage the farm together with Angela Fortuin and international endurance rider Marijke Visser, with the occasional help of Shelly and Amanda Compaan, who both share their love for Arabian horses, giving them all the love they so well deserve!

Now older t ha n a ny of its young competitors, the Youth national Arabian and Half-Arabian

Championship

Horse

show

celebrated its 20th anniversary with deep competition, contagious camaraderie, and that Youth nationals spirit that is simply one of a kind.

Volume 43, no. 5 | 265


T

he 2012 Youth nationals brought in nearly 1,000 horses for eight days of 130 classes, but beyond the competition, many other fun events were held at the Albuquerque, n.m., fairgrounds. one of the first was the Arabian Professional and Amateur Horse Association Clinic on Thursday afternoon in the Horse Arena. This year, it featured prominent trainers Lisa Jo White and Crystal mcnutt, who offered their expertise in the divisions of saddle seat equitation and Western pleasure. next on the list was the Arabian Horse Youth Association Convention held the following day, Friday, in the Youth Hall. Convention events included the election of AHYA officers, a discussion of new ideas for the industry, taking goofy pictures in the photo booth, and enjoying time with old and new friends before the show started. The marathon show itself began on saturday morning. sunday brought more classes, but just as notably, the Parade of regions. Youth exhibitors and spectators from their regions came together to celebrate the beginning of the show. As each regional group presented their impressively-decorated golf carts to an excited Albuquerque crowd, the audience saw a

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

unique “timeline” of the history of the world. The golf carts, in order of region and chronological era, brought to life everything from cavemen to medieval castles and wenches, Vikings, the wild west, the roaring 20s, the disco era, current times, and finally, provided a glimpse of the future. next on the list of events was the Youth nationals Welcome Party, where everyone in the Youth Hall was invited for free food and entertainment. Continuing through the week, on Wednesday, the Youth nationals Judging Contest, hosted by Carole stohlman, was held in the warm Albuquerque sun. That evening, the 20th Anniversary of Youth nationals Celebration offered free ice cream, a dunk tank, and fun games for the youth to enjoy. burkman Training Centre also hosted an open house party at the fairgrounds, where everyone was welcomed for a delicious catered meal and Youth nationals camaraderie. on Thursday came the Dog Costume Contest and race; the contest allowed loving owners to show off their dog’s style, and young owners responded by dressing their dogs up in everything from a sheep outfit to a tutu. This was followed up with some of


2012 Youth Nationals

the more athletic pups speeding across the arena in the Annual Dog race. An then there was the Youth nationals Pig Toss—using stuffed toy pigs, of course. Friday, the second to last day of the show, offered the lead line class, where a large group of youngsters showed off their Arabian mounts while smiling and waving at the crowd, all of whom admired the temperament of the horses paired with the tiny people on their backs. The afternoon session closed with the AHT Youth Yearbook group photo and ice cream social, where the exhibitors of the show gathered their hard-earned roses and ribbons, and set up in front of Tingley’s center ring for a commemorative photograph. As they jumped in the air with joy, their smiling faces showed their pride in every ribbon and trophy.

in the last class of Friday evening, the freestyle reining, the crowd was wowed by the creativity and talent of

the reining competitors at the 2012 Youth nationals.

Colby Powell took the title of champion, riding to

the song “Dude Looks Like a Lady” and wearing a

complementary outfit for such an endeavor. The final

saturday of the show was filled with more trophies,

rose garlands, smiles, and water balloon fights—the dynamics of a successful Youth nationals.

There are as many ways to remember the 2012 Youth nationals as there were people, young and old, who

attended. This year, we see the show through the eyes

of an 11-year-old english rider, a Youth nationals

grandfather, a dressage rider, a mother, and a daughter. Volume 43, no. 5 | 267


Boy On An English Horse— Cameron Hickerson spectators in one area of Tingley Colisseum on the

afternoon of the english Pleasure JTr 13 & Under class could not have helped but notice a nervous

mother. Karstin Hickerson, of Dixon, Calif., was

noticeably on edge and excited, her eyes riveted on her son’s performance. she explained that he had opted

out of showing in the walk-trot english because he wanted to show his 19-year-old stallion, sir magni

Feke, an adorably spunky chestnut english horse.

even in the incredibly tough and competitive event, it seemed that Cameron spent the whole class smiling,

just having a blast with his talented horse. every

time he rode by his mom, his eyes met hers, looking

for reassurance and guidance in a class where he was undoubtedly the youngest exhibitor.

“This was his first year showing this horse,” his dad,

Todd Hickerson, explains. “He’d only shown him at

scottsdale, where he won champion in the JoTr 17 &

Under and was reserve in the JTr 17 & Under. Then we went to Youth nationals. so Cameron has only

shown him at two shows. sir magni Feke’s a stallion,

but he’s excellent to be worked and shown—i never

worry about him at all with the kids riding him.”

on the day of their first english class, it was just

another day in the show ring for Cameron and his

english horse. “He felt like he always does—good, and like he knew what he was doing. He didn’t have to

work too hard for it, so i just kind of went for a ride.” but it was a special ride, and when the announcer introduced the winning duo of the class—saying,

“so many horses here are magical, but only one is

magni Feke!”—the young boy grew quite emotional in his first national championship. “i was really just

speechless,” he recalls. “All my hard work paid off and

Cameron Hickerson 268 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

the horse and i trotted down there, and that was it.”


2012 Youth Nationals

Emily Phillips

To Dressage And Beyond— Emily Phillips in her third year showing at Youth nationals, emily Phillips, of Yorba Linda, Calif., demonstrates promising dressage talent, the horse to go with it, and a supportive mom to be there for her through it all. mother Lynn Phillips shared the disappointment that last year’s Youth nationals was for emily and her horse, All Af lame. “she took him to Youth nationals last year and before they even competed, he was injured,” she remembers. “He just stayed in his stall the whole time we were at the show. so, in a sense, this year was like a comeback year for him, winning a reserve national championship and five top tens.” “reserve champion was really special because i definitely wasn’t expecting it,” emily says. “Dressage wouldn’t be my first guess at what me and All Af lame would excel at, so i was especially excited about doing so well. Honestly, it felt like a pretty normal ride.” “‘it felt like a normal ride?’” her mother exclaims. “Well, obviously the judges didn’t think so!” Lynn Phillips pauses and then continues, “Well, this is her first year with her trainer, nicki mcGinnis, whose main emphasis is dressage, so i think that has really made a difference for emily and her horse.”

Phillips points out that her daughter’s ability in

dressage had been recognized outside the show ring as

well. “emily was selected as the only Arabian youth rider in the pilot year of UseF’s Young Dressage

rider program in 2009, which is spearheaded by

former olympian Lendon Gray,” she says. “From the

West Coast, UseF selected 10 riders from all the

applicants for the two-day intensive clinic with David

Wightman.”

Although Arabians are not among the breeds best

known in dressage, emily endorses them. “i think there are a lot of qualities about Arabian horses as

dressage horses,” she says. “All the horses at nicki’s

are on par with any horse competing in the same

level on the open dressage circuit. With my horse in

particular, i think that his gaits are what make him a

competitive dressage horse for me.”

“The dressage divisions at Youth this year were very

competitive,” Lynn Phillips says. “The level of quality

of the horses in dressage is definitely improving every year at this show—it’s getting tougher and tougher.”

Volume 43, no. 5 | 269


The Grandfatherly Connections At Youth Nationals As the passion for Arabian horses trickles down through the generations of a family, Youth nationals offers an opportunity to see not only the newest horse lovers in a family, but the original enthusiasts as well. Grandparents enjoy the show and provide a unique perspective; this year, we heard from two of them. As the biggest fans of their grandchildren, these men spent the week in Albuquerque boasting about the talent of their progeny and their chances of winning a national championship in their respective classes. in his first year coming to Albuquerque to watch his grandchildren, Larry Jerome, of barron, Wis., was proud to be a part of their experience. Grandsons Joseph and Zach stransky competed with their Half-Arabian western pleasure horse, PKH Flame of Fame, and came away with three top tens collectively. “Grandparents love to watch their grandchildren,” says Jerome. “i am no exception. it was always my dream that my grandkids would follow in the footsteps of our own children. maybe you are a little more relaxed as you watch, particularly because you realize that it’s a journey and one horse show does not define a career. You reflect on where your own kids were at that age and now the wonderful opportunities your grandkids have. it’s a special time of sharing, and the joy of being included.”

Joseph and Zach Stransky

Jerome considers the perks of being the secondgeneration connection to youth competitors. “The best part is not having to pay the training, show fees and hauling expense!” he grins. “it is a lower intensity show for me. There is less emphasis on winning and more enjoyment out of being a spectator.” Another grandfather who has a lot of experience with helping his grandchildren at Youth nationals is irwin schimmel, of Hillsboro, ore. This year, his grandson Cole schimmel drove Fox Appeal to a national reserve championship in Half-Arabian Pleasure Driving JTD 17 & Under, and also won two top tens in Half-Arabian english Pleasure 14-17. “Cole can warm up and show his own horse,” schimmel says. “He’s a good hand. We’ve had some good horses, but she’s probably one of the nicest kid’s horses i’ve ever had. And she’s not old—i think she’s only 9 or 10. This mare is so awesome that she just rarely will ever do anything wrong.” 270 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

Cole Schimmel


2012 Youth Nationals

He weighs the benefits and drawbacks of being an exhibitor’s grandparent. “i’ve got eight grandkids, and most all of them have shown locally,” he says, “but the thing of it is, we don’t go to a lot of shows because the kids have their families and sports and activities of their own. it’s not the same as taking your own kids and having the family involved—it’s a lot different with this. i have to take what i can get! “but it is really gratifying to watch them get better,” he continues. “in my situation, spending time with the grandkids with horses gives me a chance to connect with them in a way i wouldn’t be able to otherwise. it’s like me with my granddad—i really enjoyed him a lot and he taught me a lot. some of the things he taught me i’ve tried to pass along to these kids.” in terms of his approach to the training of the horses, schimmel has taken it upon himself to keep everything in-house. “We kind of do our own thing. Vicki Humphrey helped us a little bit, but overall, the approach i take is that i get them ready myself and i do my own training. i drive the kids’ horses to keep them in shape, so they can ride whenever they want that way. i kind of teach them to ride the way i drive them. The kids don’t need to use as much leg to cue them. And in the show ring, i think it’s important to teach them that instead of worrying about something that went wrong, we talk about how we can be better, what may have hurt their placing, and where we can go from there.” Volume 43, no. 5 | 271


Youth Nationals “Show Mom” Sarah Gunlicks As a mother and a former student of Carole stohlman years ago, sarah Gunlicks, of sioux Falls, s. D., knows what it is like to be in the show ring. she knows how to ease nerves that showing can inspire, and most importantly, understands the significance that a show like Youth nationals can have in a youth exhibitor’s show career and life afterwards. now she watches her daughter, skylar, enjoy Arabian horses. “For me, as a mother, i love the camaraderie that happens between the kids at Youth nationals,” Gunlicks says. “They might not know each other very well, and even may be competing in the same class, but they end up leaving with a very strong bond at the end of the week. it seems like in the Youth nationals horse world, these kids root for the other stables and have a certain respect for each other. And i think this all has to do with the Arabian horse and the bond formed between the kids and their horses.

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

“The horse adds another dimension for the kids,” she continues. “With other sports, it’s just basically one competitor against another, but with showing horses, i think the kids can relate to the bond their competitors have with their horse. They understand what it takes to get there. That’s why i love horse shows for skylar.” Gunlicks also believes that the enjoyable events scattered through the week are an important aspect of the memories that Youth nationals instills in its participants. “i think that everyone who is involved— parents, trainers, show commissioners, people of the organization—recognizes that these events are a huge part of it. This is why people really come. They want to do these games, they want to dress up the golf cart, have the little water fights; these are the things they are going to remember. They’re not going to remember all the negatives and positives of their rides, they’re going to remember the fun that they had at the show.” What is an experience like Youth nationals, if not something to grow from? For Gunlicks, Youth is


2012 Youth Nationals

just that for her daughter. “Youth nationals is a very unique setting. it’s a horse, it’s a trainer and it’s a family, plus the kid—it’s quite the mixture, and they all depend on the strength of one another. As a parent of a youth rider, it’s important to remember that having all these elements blend seamlessly is a far-fetched, but not entirely impossible, dream. every class depends on the ride, how the horse is feeling, and the situations that come up. They are not necessarily planned for or practiced, so even if the ride is exceptional, there is always a chance of an unknown element making its way to the surface when it’s inconvenient.” That is part of her view of Youth nationals as a character-building experience for the kids. “You may have a bad ride, but the next time you come into the ring, you have to own it,” she says. “i love what it’s done for skylar outside of the show ring, because now that she’s playing basketball, even her coach has come to notice that she recovers quickly when something bad happens—which is definitely something she’s

learned from showing, especially at Youth nationals. You have to treat it like, ‘okay, thank you for that life lesson,’ and move forward from it. And this easily applies to life. it teaches you that you’re not in control of everything, and you have to think on your feet and recover quickly when something does happen. This is how the real world is; everything is not set up perfectly. However, in the show ring, when the elements line up, it’s such a positive experience to be a part of.” Another aspect of Youth that Gunlicks finds especially important is the show’s all-for-one mentality. “i love it that everybody steps up and helps you out when you really need it,” she says. “Whether it’s fixing a bun or doing makeup or borrowing earrings, when someone needs a hand, there’s always one reaching out to help. The crucial moments are when their hearts are the biggest. i just get goose bumps when i see the girls all dressed and ready to show—and it doesn’t matter who got them ready (but it’s probably a community effort to get them there). everybody is in it together. it’s all one effort, and that’s a really special thing.” Volume 43, no. 5 | 273


The Saddle Seat Daughter— Skylar Gunlicks Having shown GsF High Caliber only at region 13 before heading to Youth nationals, skylar was at a marked disadvantage for a national show. “i’d only ridden him a handful of times before Youth and he was very unpredictable,” she says. “i never really knew what he was going to do, and he didn’t really like to walk very well, so i learned to be really calm and easy going and confident, conservative for him. i had to talk to him a lot because he would get really antsy, and i quickly realized that if i was nervous, it was just going to make him more nervous. Keeping him relaxed was tough, but it was a fun challenge for me.” she had the patience and poise to ride him to three top tens at Youth this year. “my favorite class was the Half-Arabian saddle seat equitation. We ended up placing third and we nailed the pattern, so i was beyond thrilled with that class. beforehand, i was really nervous for the pattern, so i just kind of went in and did it, and i really didn’t know if i nailed it or not, but everyone was so excited for me. so, i was, like, ‘all right, i guess it was pretty good!’ i guess i was just too nervous to comprehend how it really went!” As with any horse show, the verdict is never really known until the end, so skylar remained nervous about her chances for a top ten in the class. “i honestly didn’t think i was going to make top ten, because we had trouble walking in the class,” she admits. “Plus, when i was waiting for the rest of the top ten to be called, there were, like, eight other horses left too, and i knew there were some really good ones—so i didn’t know what was going to happen. i was obviously thrilled when they called my number in such a tough equitation class!”

Skylar Gunlicks 274 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

When asked about her mom’s involvement in her showing, skylar’s honesty and appreciation were impressive. “When we go out to warm up, all i can think is, ‘mom, give me some space, let me think this through on my own,’ but once i get into the show ring, i’m really glad she’s there to watch me. she gives me confidence on the rail when i mess up, cheering me on. it’s one thing when my friend says it, but it’s another thing when my mom does.”


2012 Youth Nationals

And In The End … Trainer Leah boyd, of Cedar ridge Arabians, explains just how special this event has become for Arabian youth competitors. “one of the biggest aspects of Youth is certainly the camaraderie,” says boyd. “it’s fun to see different kids from all over the country competing against each other, but still being really close friends and supportive of each other at the end of the class. it’s a very unique and fun horse show in that regard. “Also, showing at Youth nationals myself for so many years, i think it’s really helpful that i can offer my perspective on the show. For me, in the younger riders, that perspective is a big part of the whole deal—like, yes, this year is important, but you have to remember that you’re going to be showing at Youth for years to come. so, thinking of every class or year as a stepping

stone for the next challenge can be a really great way to deal with the nerves of showing at Youth nationals.” Another year of Youth nationals is in the record books—another marathon show is left in the Albuquerque dust, and yet, the memories of first national championships, comeback stories, and new friendships formed are still fresh in the minds of all who were involved. it is a show so unique and lifechanging that even though everyone is beyond spent by the end of it, they will be back next year to support the future of the Arabian industry—the fresh, smiling kids who simply love to show their Arabian horses.  Volume 43, no. 5 | 275

The most memorable moment of Youth Nationals for me was …

Gabrielle Aguirre

The most memorable moment for me was winning a national Championship at my first Youth nationals. i never went expecting what i left with, which always makes things way more exciting!

Abigail Faith Buschette

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me is that nothing so far in my life compares to entering Tingley Arena. no matter what happens, where shady and i finish in the rankings, it makes me feel like a superstar—the entire event is so incredible. i know i’ll miss it when i get older, but Tingley is the thing that always stands out in my memories. it’s a cool place!

Logan Chisholm

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was winning the reserve Championship in reining. Although the competition is tough in all divisions, it was so great to take two days of combined scores against so many great riders and come out second. The pressure was amazing, and to have to go out and have two great rides just to get in the top ten was nerve wrecking. so, i was beyond excited to win the reserve Championship roses.

Sydney Dazzo

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was deciding to change horses for the UPHA class two days prior to the event, and going through the gate and successfully performing a pattern on a horse that had never done one before. 302 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

Juliette Dell

my most memorable moment of Youth nationals was showing “Peanut!” showing her was easily the most fun i have ever had! i felt like i was in my own world trotting through rainbows. she is so fun, and just the thought of her always makes me so happy. i feel so blessed to have her in my life, and she will always hold a special place in my heart.

Sarah Esqueda

i am so proud of my new boy, CP rumor Has it. This was his first show season ever, and he won roses! He has come so far with Cynthia as his trainer. He loves and trusts her as i do too. Thank you to my friends at Cal Poly Pomona who bred this very special guy. rumor has it, he is destined to be a Champion! i am so lucky to have had such a great show season for my first year in the 14-17 division.

Hannah Feldman

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was getting to the finals with my Half-Arabian country horse, Kaz, because he and i have come a long way from January 2010 to now. i love you, boy! Also, i am so thankful for getting two national Championships and my first reserve national Championship with my horse malieka. (it was our third show in side saddle.) Thank you so much!

Raven Gropp

Going into the 14-17 division for the first time was intimidating to say the least. i was excited beyond belief to hear my name called


AHT Youth Stars five different times as reserve national Champion. However, the highlight was being named reserve national Champion saddle seat equitation 14-17 in my first year in that division!

Alexis Kiesner

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was my Unanimous Championship in UPHA Challenge Cup 13 & Under. i had been working so hard to improve my equitation for this year and it paid off. one of the parts that made it so good was my pattern—it was perfect. When i finished, it felt so good to have it over and done with.

MiKenna LaVenture

besides all the riding and showing (because that is always the best), the most memorable part of Youth this year was the golf-cart parade. it was so fun to work with all the other kids to make our giant 80s boom box!

Lexi LeFever

my most memorable moment was receiving a Top Ten in Western Pleasure with my very own horse splendorella and being able to compete with all the top horses in the country. i would also have to say another memorable moment was participating in the water balloon fights every night!

Emily Moore

The most memorable moment for me was when one of my best friends, makenna rooker, and i went national Champion and reserve national Champion in one class and then switched titles in our next class. our double victory pass didn’t go as planned, but it was still awesome!

Laura Morton

my most memorable moment of Youth nationals was winning the Unanimous Championship in Half-Arabian english Pleasure JoTr and JTr. i remember crying my eyes out, because i was so happy and grateful for having such an amazing horse. i could not believe i achieved a national Championship my second year attending youth. i am also proud that i got around the ring without huge mistakes, because it was my first year showing “slammy.”

The most memorable moment of Youth Nationals for me was …

Mayree Nolan

i have many most memorable moments at Youth nationals. i remember bill wearing his white trainer jacket and keeping me company in the ring while waiting for the results of the 10 & Under class. my favorite moment was when i won national Champion for 10 & Under at my first Youth nationals, and i will never forget how happy bill looked when they called my number and name.

Emily Pate

This was my first Youth nationals, and what a wonderful experience to win three Top Tens! To be competing with the best of the best was an honor for me. When i look back at all the wonderful memories of Youth, i think my most memorable moment was my UPHA Challenge Cup ride. Although i was nervous, i felt confident and really good about going into the ring. making the finals was super cool, and getting a Top Ten was the icing on the cake! Youth was my favorite show of the year, and i can’t wait for next year! 

Kendyl Peters

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was when i was waiting for the numbers to be announced. i grasped the reins with only two fingers, as the two others were crossed. i could feel my heart pounding against my rib cage. As they called my number, 791, i screamed out in excitement. The roses being placed around William’s neck and my friends and family surrounding me, it was one of my dreams come true.

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

Caitlin Pigott

my most memorable moment of the 2012 Youth nationals was when i won the national Championship with my horse TA Prelude. once i heard them call our names, it all was really a blur. i can remember immediately giving “Luke” a huge hug and trying to hold back tears of joy. There really is no view like the one watching them place that rose garland on the neck of the horse that owns so much of your heart.

Sarah Nicole Porter

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was when i heard my name on the loudspeaker for national Champion on my horse, Caliente Virtuoso. He is an amazing horse! i was totally excited when i heard my name announced! That night, it was all laughs at the stalls when we had a water balloon fight to celebrate! it was so much fun, and everyone was drenched and covered in mud! We really had a fun time!

Anna Redmond

The most memorable moment for me was winning the JoTr and JTr Western Pleasure on Psyncinati Kid. it was an unforgettable moment, and i can’t wait to come back next year.

Makenna Rooker

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was my double victory passes with emily moore when we won the purebred english and park classes. it was also exciting to get Top Ten in the huge Half-Arabian hunter class my first year in 14-17.


Noah Rooker

AHT Youth Stars

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was winning on my horse Johny.

Cole Schimmel

Winning my reserve national Championship and hearing all my cousins and family cheer for me. Also spending time with all my cousins and Grandpa and Gramma ...

Kaley Smith

my first national Championship; i was a blissful mess. Going into the final, i didn’t expect much. As a 13-year-old with an underdog horse, i was thrilled to have just made the 17 & Under cut. being called national champion, i lost it. All my dreams finally came true. Uncontrollable sobbing and yelling, i still remember the walk to get our roses. bawling when you are happy is the most wonderful paradox.

Holland Stevens

This Youth nationals has given me many memories that i will never forget, but the one that stands out the most was when i won the english side saddle title on Gr Khaleidoscope (Khlyde).

Joseph Stransky

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was being third overall on the judges’ cards in the Half-Arabian Western Pleasure JTr 13 & Under class. This was my first year in this division.

Zach Stransky

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was that it was my first! it was fun winning my first Top Ten.

Sawyer Elisabeth-Anne Tehan my most memorable moment was hearing my name and sammy’s name called for Top Ten in Walk/Trot after we have tried so hard for the past two years. it was such a great feeling.

Sarah Beth Womble

The most memorable moment of Youth nationals for me was winning a Championship in driving. it was my first time driving in competition, and it was the first class of the show.

A Cry For Freedom (HAll) Most of the classes were well-filled, but the story of the week was not just numbers. It was the level of competition. Performance and halter classes sometimes saw as many as five, six and seven reigning or past national champions competing, and the junior horse classes revealed glimpses of greatness. Trainer Jim Lowe said, “No other ring in the world can make a horse look better than Freedom Hall can. “If you play baseball, you want to play in Yankee Stadium,” he added. “If you play basketball, you want to play in Madison Square Garden; if you play football, you want to play at Lambeau Field. If you show Arabian horses, you want to ride in Freedom Hall.” Freedom Hall’s popularity as a high-profile venue for national sporting events, sold-out concerts, fairs and major equine competitions makes it an expensive proposition, but the more than 300 horses that came to the party exceeded the breakeven number the organizing team hoped to attract. It followed that the 350-plus class entries also exceeded the breakeven total. Freedom Hall once again rang out with the over-the-top quality, performances and sportsmanship the Arabian community brought to town in 1976. The Arabian Horse Celebration brought Arabians back to Freedom Hall as no other horse show has before. Louisville was often heralded as the Arabian horse community’s favorite U.S. National Show site. From 1976, when the show first came to the River City, through 2006, when it said good-bye, many people anticipated those biennial trips to the Ohio River Valley as they did no other national event. But this was different. Everybody came to the show early each morning and lingered after the evening classes were over, reluctant to leave the magical (yes, magical) gathering. Breeders, trainers, exhibitors, support staff and spectators alike seemed to find the excitement, enthusiasm and camaraderie irresistible. Their verdict was unanimous: the inaugural Celebration was an unqualified success.

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

sHowing Up The four-day event did more than just bring Arabians and Half-Arabians back to Louisville. It created new expectations. The event’s easy schedule and warm, collegial climate allowed people to catch their breath. “This show was so relaxed!” marveled Kim Jarvis, of Solon, Ohio. An Arabian owner and exhibitor since childhood, Jarvis serves on the Arabian Horse Celebration Board, and coordinated local television and media coverage. “The schedule allowed people not to feel pushed and pulled in 15 different directions, like you usually are,” she observed. “The relaxed atmosphere even translated to the horses! Some horses made the best shows I have ever seen them make. Trainers who only brought a few horses to the show this year because they wanted to scope it out all


told me, ‘I’ll be here next year. When word gets out, the Arabian Horse Celebration will become the place to be.’ The show definitely has my support,” she added. “I brought three horses this year. If I have 10 horses next year, I will bring 10.” “We weren’t going to bring any horses,” said Tina Burkhart of Classicala Farm in Ottawa Lake, Mich. “We had gotten a double commercial booth, but when Kelly Charpentier told me they still needed a few halter horses, we took four. One of those was a 10-year-old dressage gelding, AKB Puccinnii, who had been shown in halter when he was much younger. He is by our stallion, Sibelius. He was so funny! When I led him down the ramp and into the ring, he looked up, and the first thing he saw was himself on the Jumbotron above center ring. He wouldn’t pay any attention to me, the whole class. He kept craning his neck and looking around me, as if to say, ‘Move over! I can’t see myself on television!’

“The show turned out to be more than I had ever hoped for,” said Bob Battaglia, Arabian Horse Celebration President. “It brought in people who hadn’t been involved with Arabians for years, and re-ignited their interest.” Christy McDowell, who treasures her 32-year-old Amurath Baikal son and his elderly harem, but no longer

“We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Celebration! It was like a breath of fresh air because I got to meet, and actually sit down and talk with, people my only previous contact with had been on the phone. We always enjoyed U.S. Nationals when the show was in Louisville. There is something so special about the city, and there is a lot of Arabian horse history in Freedom Hall.”

Volume 43, No. 5 | 323


shows, was one of those. “I’m so glad there is an Arabian show back in Louisville,” she said. “This revives my dreams, and makes me begin to plan again for the future.”

to the world’s most famous equine spectacle, Louisville is unique, yet so often we never leave the showgrounds. We never get to see what the city has to offer.

At the StArting gAte

“The party was on the fourth floor, on Millionaires’ Row, in a room that overlooks the track. All the track lights were on, so people could see the Arabian Horse Celebration logo displayed on the huge TV monitors outside. Guests came in through the paddock, where we served each person a glass of wine. Deb Mihaloff, of Markel Insurance, sponsored televising a past Arabian race at Delaware Park on the Jumbotron, a large-screen, HD television.”

Tuesday evening, the night before the show, a kickoff party was held at historic Churchill Downs. This gathering gave Celebration participants who chose to go, many of whom probably never had been to Churchill Downs, a chance to enjoy the grand old landmark that hosts the Kentucky Derby. Tickets were a little pricey, but the famous facility’s prestige makes it an expensive place to do almost anything (unless, of course, your horse happens to win the Kentucky Derby; it may cost you a fortune to get him there, but you should come out ahead). Starting Gate Party Chair Amanda Purdin, who is also the ACH Board of Directors’ Secretary, oversaw pre-party arrangements. “Our idea was always to make the Arabian Horse Celebration more than just another horse show,” she said, “and Churchill Downs was the perfect place to create a social setting away from the horse show. As home

“Tuesday night was amazing!” said Kelly Charpentier, the person you reach when you call the AHC information number. “We had encouraged people to wear Derby attire, which traditionally includes a great hat. The ladies came dressed in fashionable clothes and fancy hats; the men wore sporty, Kentucky Derby-style outfits.” And there was another attraction. “We arranged with the Jockeys Guild for jockeys to be celebrities at the party, and Pat Day was one of them,” said Purdin. “He was so accessible! He talked to exhibitors and trainers at the party, and he was intrigued enough to come out to the show on Saturday. He watched the Stallion Row presentations. Then he went into Freedom Hall to watch the opening ceremonies, and stayed for all the championship classes; he really liked the English horses. Our goal is to encourage people to come back to the Arabian breed, and to generate interest from people on the outside. Who could be better than Pat Day, the most famous horseman alive, to help spread the good word?”

AngelS’ heArtS Tuesday night’s party was not just a good time: it also focused on the Arabian Horse Celebration’s charity, Angel Heart Farm, with a benefit auction. “We auctioned off two donated items: a beautiful, original ladies’ Derby hat and a handmade, artisan belt buckle,” said Kelly Charpentier. “Tom Moore paid $5,000 for the hat, and Karen Stull bought the belt buckle for $3,500. The $8,500 the auction raised went to our charity.” Angel Heart Farm, located in Lexington, Ky., is a nonprofit organization which uses animals, especially equine-assisted therapy, to help children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. “In Angel Heart Farm,

324 | A R A BI A n HOR SE T I MES


we created a safe and caring situation where children could experience the joys of riding and caring for their favorite horse,” said founder Tracy Kujawa, a three-time cancer survivor. She is also an Arabian horse enthusiast, and Arabians are the primary breed used in the farm’s hippotherapy program. Observers watching Kujawa man her AHC booth, gracious and self-possessed throughout the event, were amazed by her energy and dedication. “This is the best show, ever, and I wish I was showing!” Kujawa said. “The Arabian Horse Celebration organization has been so good to Angel Heart Farm. We are so grateful. They are a class act, and they have supported us both monetarily and spiritually. We are very grateful.”

a great success, but it dropped out of sight. There hasn’t been a Stallion Row for at least 25 years. We brought back Stallion Row. People got to see, live and in person, not only rising stars, but also older stallions they may only have read about or seen in photographs. It was a perfect venue for people to learn about those sires first hand, and it generated the excitement and interest stallion owners dream about.”

Stallion SightingS

Seeing Battaglia, trainer Keith Krichke called out as he walked by, “Stallion Row was so much fun! There were so many stallions people don’t get to see very often, and

“The Arabian Horse Fairs in 1974, 1975 and 1976 featured Stallion Row,” stated Bob Battaglia. “The concept was

my customers really enjoyed it. And that’s only one of the reasons we need to support this show!”

here is safer, especially for Half-Arabian English horses that need a longer straightaway and wider turns.”

The 17 Stallion Row stallions were presented all four days at noon in Freedom Hall’s North Wing, which also housed the commercial exhibits and the Celebration Café. At midday the stands around the cordoned-off Stallion Row ring would fill quickly with people waiting expectantly. On Friday and Saturday evenings at 6:30 p.m., the Stallion Row stallions were spotlighted in the main ring. Their owners reported that they were well pleased with the exposure.

“I especially liked the educational presentations,” added Ann LaPointe. “I learned things. I wish more shows would have the kinds of educational opportunities this one did.”

Jack LaPointe and his wife Ann, of Diamond Hill Arabians, in Waxhaw, N.C., brought three horses, one of which was their stallion, Hucks Connection V. “We are very glad to be here,” LaPointe said. “We were here at U.S. Nationals in 2006, the year we bought Hucks Connection V. Well, we’re back. The ring

326 | A R A bI A N HOR SE T I mES

“Will we be here next year?” La Pointe wondered rhetorically. “That is a resounding yes!”


Special MoMentS Late Friday afternoon, exhibitor and breeder Jean O’Leary of Janesville, Wis., and trainer Peter Stachowski were walking O’Leary’s country English pleasure gelding, Goblet of Fire CCF, back from some practice riding when they stopped to talk about the show. “This is a wonderful show,” O’Leary said. “Everybody is having so much fun, and of course, Freedom Hall is incredible.” The lady knew whereof she spoke. She had ridden her grey Bask Flame daughter, AA Pristine, to the 1998 U.S. National Reserve Championship in Country English Pleasure AAOTR 40 & Over in Freedom Hall. (The pair previously had garnered the 1997 U.S. National Championship in English Pleasure AAOTR 40 & Over.) “I have liked the show a lot,” said Peter Stachowski. “It has been very competitive because the overall quality of the horses is so high, and my customers have enjoyed themselves because they’ve been able to relax and meander around, socializing with old friends and meeting people.” Another of Peter Stachowski’s satisfied clients was Jan Senneker, of Avatar Arabians, in Perry, Mich. Senneker rides all the time at home, but this was the first time in years that she had shown. Not only that; this was the first time she had ever ridden in Freedom Hall. The horse she showed and placed with in both classes she entered was the young stallion, Pioneer Express, who represents five generations of Avatar breeding. “I always loved coming to Louisville,” she said, “and I understand that this facility cannot provide the number of stalls we need [for the U.S. Nationals], but I was so sorry when we left six years ago.” She grinned wickedly, her eyes twinkling. “We’re baa-a-a-ack ... ” “The show was something new and really exciting,” Peter’s brother, Jim Stachowski, said a week later. “I haven’t gotten that excited about a show or had that much fun in a long time. The spectators and my customers had a great time. Anybody that misses out on this show next year

will really miss out. The Arabian Horse Celebration is the show of the future.” “I’m proud to have played a part in this show,” said Ellie Troutman, of Windy Meadows Equestrian Center in LaGrange, Ky. “You know, this show is really important for the Arabian breed. Everyone worked so hard to make the Celebration a reality, and we have to come and support it. If we don’t step up and become part of the solution, we become part of the problem. For example, at the last minute, somebody didn’t come through for the Parade of Disciplines, so they called us to see if we could bring a western horse. I said, ‘Of course.’ “When my daughter, Tayler Rinehart, found out she was going to ride, she was so excited! ‘But which horse?’ she wondered,” Troutman continued. “I said, ‘Let’s take LC The Cavalier.’ He was a reserve national champion at Youth Nationals a few years ago, but we bought him two years ago for my little niece to show in walk-and-trot. Volume 43, No. 5 | 327


Tayler frowned and said, ‘The kid’s horse?’ But when she rode him into the ring, you could just see Cavalier swell with pride. He knew he was a champion, and this was where he belonged!”

Pizzonia, and Half-Arabian Mounted Native Costume Champion with trainer Lou Sichini for his Ocala, Fla., owner. Pizzonia also bred and raised the big, powerful grey gelding.

RingeRs

The Starting Gate Party brought Classicala Farms trainer Lisa Richmond a very special moment when she got her photograph taken with Pat Day. “This has made my whole year!” she told her boss, Tina Burkhart. Burkhart’s special moment came during the party when she realized that Alota Gator Bait, the Thoroughbred stallion she had bought two weeks earlier to cross on her Arabian mares, was a grandson of 1967 Kentucky Derby winner Proud Clarion.

There were many special show ring moments. Although every time a horse won a class, any class, the moment was very special for everyone associated with that horse or human (or both, as the case may be), space does not permit a complete listing. But one special family moment came when Ashton Kiesner rode Erica Schaffel McCaslin’s gelded Afire Bey V son, Divvinci, to the unanimous HalfArabian English Pleasure Junior Horse Championship. Placing reserve only to that horse was ASA Aerosmith, with Kiesner’s husband, Joel, in the irons. ASA Aerosmith is owned by Susan Garrison. HS Liberty, Linda Pizzonia’s versatile Half-Arabian A Temptation son, has numerous U.S. and Youth National top tens in English pleasure, pleasure driving, park and mounted native costume to his credit. He did it again at the inaugural Arabian Horse Celebration. HS Liberty was Half-Arabian Park Champion ATR with Liz

Jim Stachowski described one of his special moments. “We had some new people who had seen the ads for the Arabian Horse Celebration come by our stalls. They sat down and talked with us. And these weren’t just people from town who had stopped by. One couple came from 60 miles away, and the other had came 40 miles. That almost never happens, so I was thrilled.” He hesitated, and then added, “I think the Celebration is going to be a very significant Arabian showcase.”


There were special moments all around when Stachowski rode Smoky Mountain Park Arabians’ 6-year-old stallion, The Renaissance, to the 2012 English Pleasure Championship, the last class on Saturday night. “We were so excited and thrilled!” said Jacque Thompson, who owns Smoky Mountain Park with her husband, Rod. Mike Miller trains the SMP horses at the Lenoir City, Tenn., facility. “Jim had worked The Renaissance around midnight the night before, and what struck me was how excited the other trainers were about the horse! I can’t tell you how many people stopped by to congratulate us. One lady called me the next morning, and she was still excited! “You know,” Thompson said thoughtfully, “his name, The Renaissance, really sums up what we all are trying to do, trying to create. We need a renaissance in the Arabian horse business—a fresh start. We are all affected by so many shifting elements in today’s world. We Arabian people need a horse with promise, a beautiful, talented, good-thinking young horse with extravagant quality and extreme Arabian type. That horse may be The Renaissance. “The show was great—an overwhelming success. But even had it been a total flop, the effect this horse, and the show, had on people would have been the same. People are going the extra mile to bring back some of the glamour and prestige I remember from when I showed years ago. Not to sound too corny, but I think the Arabian Horse Celebration has given us hope for the future.”

Educating Young and old Educating the public about the Arabian breed was a high priority for the event’s organizers, so every one of the AHC’s educational seminars, clinics and demonstrations was special. Thursday and Friday featured demonstrations and seminars in Freedom Hall and the commercial exhibits area. Suffice to say that the clinicians assembled were some of the best-credentialed authorities in their individual fields of expertise. The demonstration crew included Scott Benjamin (the origin and use of the Arabian horse); Michael Byatt (conformation and judging); Vicki Humphrey and Chris Culbreth (demonstrating and comparing English and western); Bob Battaglia (selecting the right horse and setting goals); Martha Murdock, Kathy Smoke and Lynn Ashby (endurance, dressage and racing), and Stacey Giere (carriage driving).

Conducting seminars in the commercial exhibits hall on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday were insurance specialist Deborah Mihaloff (on farm safety), photographer Scott Trees, equine reproduction specialist Dr. Mario Zerlotti, and veterinarians Laura Harris D.V.M. (on maintaining good equine health) and Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital’s Vernon Dryden D.V.M. (on laminitis). There were several noteworthy aspects of the educational programs. One was the standing-room-only turnout for Dr. Dryden’s seminar on laminitis. Others came in the new-to-many-enthusiasts demonstrations on driving. Stacey Giere’s combined driving expertise made her demonstration unforgettable. She urged her horse down the ramp and burst into the ring at a full gallop. As they hurtled down the rail and around the turns, spectators clapped and cheered. The horse was pulling a marathon, an indestructible steel cart designed to survive the sport’s demanding courses. Trainer Sarah Vas’s carriage driving demo was similarly memorable: her

horse was hitched to a stylish, antique ladies’ wicker phaeton. A phaeton is a small, distinctively graceful open carriage, usually built low to the ground for early 19th century ladies’ easy access. Vas and her passenger’s outf its were understated, but their f inery in the headwear department would have f it right in at Tuesday evening’s Kentucky Derby-themed party. On Saturday afternoon, when they invited spectators into the ring to see and touch their horse, the response was immediate, as observers, primarily women of various ages, headed for the arena. Many followed Vas back to the stalls to try on fancy hats and continue ongoing discussions.


Saturday’s educational offerings were expressly aimed at youth. “Free Youth Workshops: Fun, Educational and Interactive!” read the website headline, while in the background, fireworks exploded against a midnight sky. Laurie Husband, AHC Events Coordinator Kelly Charpentier, and Husband’s sister, schoolteacher Ellen Handel, created two schedules of events. One was designed to appeal to pre-schoolers through elementary school children, and another, kicked up a few notches, was for middle school and high school students. The younger children’s 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. list opened with “Horse Story Time,” featuring readings by author Ellie Troutman from her book, The Tails of Windy Meadows. Tails is described by its writer as “a nonfiction book about a day in the life, as told by the horses and dogs that live at Windy Meadows.” “They then had an interactive art lesson, where they drew a horse and colored it as they chose,” said Laurie Husband. “I had put together bags of supplies for making stick horses, so we gave each child a bag and showed them how to make stick horses. They had a lot of fun with the stick horses, which they took home with them. “Next, we took them on a tour of the stable area. Fred, at Pegasus Arabians, showed them how to bathe a horse, and Annie Boylan, assistant trainer at Iron Horse Farm, gave them a lesson in clipping, grooming and getting a horse ready to show. Annie also showed them some simple safety techniques and talked to them about keeping themselves and the horse from getting injured. Everybody was fascinated. “They got to watch an English pleasure class in Freedom Hall, and we then took them to see Melissa Holmes at Show Season. The little girls loved the fancy clothes and all the sparkly stuff. At the end, we had an ice cream social for them. “The portion for middle and high school students was from 1 to 3 p.m. Scott Trees sat down on the floor with them and explained the difference between a photograph and other forms of artistic expression. Dr. Brad Hill, the show’s oncall veterinarian, talked to them about how to become an equine practitioner (veterinarian). The older kids also got an ice cream social at the end. It was a special day.”

Judgments And Reflections Lisa Blackstone, Scott Brumfield, Kelly Elm, Duane Esser, Richard Petty and Joseph Polo judged the inaugural Arabian Horse Celebration. “To be on the judge’s panel for this inaugural event was one of the top three judging assignments in my career,” said Richard Petty. “Judging Scottsdale and the U.S. Nationals are the other two. The whole event was so exciting and sentimental for me that I found myself in tears from time to time, especially during the opening ceremonies on Friday and Saturday evenings. I will never forget the opportunity I had to be a part of the very first Arabian Horse Celebration!” “This is one of the nicest shows I have ever attended,” Jacque Thompson agreed as the Celebration neared its end. “I’ve had a wonderful time, and everybody I have seen appears to be relaxed and happy. I have seen people talking who probably haven’t spoken in years.” Kim Jarvis always keeps the big picture in mind, and her observations are usually dead on. “This show was inspired, developed and brought to life by horsemen and horsewomen who understand horse people’s needs,” she pointed out. “I am in the insurance business, and in that business we say, ‘It takes a horseman to understand.’ The same principle applies here. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about the Arabian Horse Celebration is the way people welcome each other with genuine warmth and sincerity. They root for each other, and are happy for each other’s good fortune. Everyone is glad to be here.” Clinician Sarah Vas agreed wholeheartedly. “We had a great time,” she confessed. “I would have done this for a poke in the eye and a bag of doughnuts.”
