Tradition—Would You Like To See More At Our Shows? This summer, as I go to horse shows, I feel that many lack a sense of traditionalism. With ever-changing rules and procedures, usually to prevent some form of cheating, it feels like a lot of the charm is being lost. I’m not arguing with the rules we make. No one wants cheating. But I can’t help wondering if we couldn’t somehow reestablish some of the entertaining traditions we’ve lost, or maybe add some we’ve never had but might enjoy. Here are a few examples of what I’m talking about, and there may be more from other breeds that we might think about using, too. n A favorite of mine, while scores in a class are being tabulated, is to hear the announcer provide information about past champions. It’s just a little bit of history that doesn’t help or hurt any of the competitors, but entertains the audience and helps involve them in the breed. n The use of certain songs announcing a particular class at the show, such as using the song, “My Old Kentucky Home,” heralding the Saddlebred five-gaited grand championship, as the breed is the most identified with Kentucky. n On the biggest stakes, announce as each horse comes into the ring one by one, its name, number, its owner’s name and the name of the rider, as well as hometowns. As the announcer says, “Ladies and gentlemen, the class is underway! We are showing at the trot!” you can feel the electricity hum through the spectators. n Having the announcer interview the rider of the winning horse. It doesn’t take more than a minute or two, and provides just enough time for the audience to calm down after applauding the horses and right before cheering for the winner’s victory pass. Depending on what the winning rider says, that can be a pretty emotional few minutes. Talk about making everyone feel important just to be there! We all put a lot into our shows. I don’t think we can ever do enough to make sure that everyone, exhibitors and spectators alike, feels great about being there. To me, establishing a few more traditions—finishing touches that jazz up the atmosphere and enhance our pride in our very special events—is worth considering. What do you think?

"The Arabian Celebration brings us back to the days of the Arabian Horse Fair. People travel to see the stallions on Stallion Row and to listen to clinicians who cover different topics. In my opinion, the most appealing part is the time we have as trainers to talk to not only the public but to each other. The highlight of the event is not the competition, but of being part of some excitement that our breed in recent years has been lacking. The cocktail hour during the stallion presentations took me right back to the days of glory. It was fun to be there." — Martha Murdock

Opportunity In

The Great White North by KARA LARSON

Once again held in Brandon, Manitoba, the Canadian Nationals Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship horse show will run from August 12th-17th, at the Keystone Centre, and for Gerald McDonald in his 18th year as show commission chair, he maintains that it is the wide array of classes that sets the show apart as a premier International event. Canadian Nationals remains the only AHA championship show that offers a full range of competition—187 different classes in youth, sport horse, dressage, western, hunter, and English divisions. “It’s the only one of the four national events that offers everything, which makes it unique and more of a family show. In that respect, we can bring in horses being shown by parents or by youth or in open classes as well. They’ve got the whole gambit to select from. So, I think it’s a special show in that regard.” 18 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Besides the fact that the range and sheer quantity of classes allow for more opportunities to show, Canada has a celebrated laid-back energy and feel that is truly its own. “Because Canada is very much a family show, people have a good time. It’s also a more relaxed environment than the high pressure of the U.S. Nationals. Canada provides a more carefree atmosphere while competing against some of the nicest Arabians in North America and beyond.” So, with fun, a relaxed atmosphere, and big prizes, Canadian Nationals carries some weight in the Arabian industry. With these in mind, McDonald shares the show’s impact and importance on the Arabian horse. “As previously stated, this is one of the four national events that AHA has, and as a national championship horse show, it has often been


referred to as one of the three shows in the halter world for the triple crown, which is considered Scottsdale, Canadian Nationals, and U.S. Nationals.” McDonald continues, “I was talking to somebody a little while ago and they were telling me about the interest that the show has internationally with breeders around the world who are able to watch the show on the live feed. There are so many who are always interested in seeing what’s happening and how the show is doing, so that’s encouraging. It’s great to hear that we’re getting international exposure through the live feed and through the horses that we draw to the show.” In the changes made to the show from last year, the commission has added into the sport horse division the junior horse under saddle, and adult showmanship as well.

These changes, along with the proven schedule of past years, makes Canadian Nationals a worthwhile trip to the “Great White North” for a premier Arabian horse show. And in closing, Gerald encourages all to consider Canadian Nationals in a fresh and expectant light. With a wide array of classes in a family environment, not to mention the national championship titles up for grabs—Brandon, Manitoba and Gerald McDonald hope you’ll consider Canadian Nationals a viable option in your 2013 show season. “We try to offer something for everybody and do our best to make sure people have a good time, as we recognize the distance that people are traveling and the commitment that people make to our show. We’re always willing to work with the exhibitors the best that we can so that people want to come back and enjoy our great and influential Arabian horse show. ■ Volume 44, No. 2 | 19


Time For Your

CLOSE-UP

Koy Moody What is your favorite horse show and why? Scottsdale—it is such a fun and competitive show. I love being able to see all of my friends and favorite horses there, and the weather is great for the most part! Horse shows are my favorite place to be, so being able to be at one for almost two weeks is definitely a highlight!

What is your most treasured horse show memory? Winning my first national championship on my horse, Pop Star, at the 2010 Arabian & Half-Arabian Youth National Championships. It was such a surreal moment, one that I will never forget. It was so much fun being able to experience it with my family and friends also.

What is the most memorable show-ring advice you have ever received? My saddlebred trainer, Michael Beasom, always tells me before I show to, “Go big or go home.” I always have the mindset when I show now, to just give it my all and remember why I am here to show horses.

Who is your all-time favorite show horse, and why? Definitely Afires Heir. Not only is he one of the most incredible English horses of all time, but his offspring has proven to be just as successful. He is the ultimate show horse by far! 20 | Ar ABIAN HorSE TIMES


What motivates you to show the Arabian horse, and why? What I love about the Arabian horse is the fact that they are so versatile. You just don’t really find that in other breeds. I also love their personalities—they are all about showing when it is that time, yet they are such loving creatures outside of that.

What is the most important quality you look for in your show horse? Integrity. The horse has to enjoy his or her job and have the desire to be in a competitive environment.

How did you become involved with the Arabian horse breed? I have always loved horses ever since I can remember. My family has always had a ranch with horses, and my parents wanted me to learn how to ride. I found a local barn in San Antonio, Texas that happened to have Arabian horses.

Who is the most influential person to you in the Arabian industry, and why? So many people have been influential in this industry, I cannot pick just one! Some of these individuals include: Joel and Ashton Kiesner, Crystal McNutt, Gordon Potts, Carrie Fritz, Leslie Sommer, and Katie Russell.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you? When I was 4 years old, I won the “Muttin’ Bustin’” at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo!

Eleanor Hamilton and Eleanor’s Arabians by Christy Egan

Hesa Zee and Eleanor Hamilton.

22 | Ar AbiAn Horse Times

On November 9th, two weeks after the U.S. National Championship show this year, Eleanor Hamilton will throw another one of her famous Open Barn and Clinic parties at her farm. It’s easy to find in Rogers, Minn., just off Highway 101, about a half hour northwest of the Twin Cities. The last party there was in 2008 and several hundred Arabian horse owners, breeders and reining enthusiasts attended. There have been over a dozen of these parties at the farm since Eleanor’s Arabians opened its barn doors in December of 1984. As to what this year’s party is celebrating, it hasn’t been specifically announced. No matter. There’s so much to celebrate, it’s hard to know where to begin anyway.


Crown Musc’s first blue in 1989 with Eleanore.

First off, there’s Hesa Zee+/’s birthday. Eleanor’s big bay foundation stallion was 25 in March and it’s never too late to celebrate this extraordinary stallion’s impact on the Arabian horse reining scene. During the course of his 12-year show career, Hesa Zee+/ was U.S. and Canadian National Top Ten Reining Open/Amateur six times, Canadian Reserve National Champion Open Reining and champion at both the IAHA Snaffle Bit Futurity and Maturity. The best siring son of Leading All-Time Working Western Sire, Xenophonn, Hesa Zee+/ has produced Canadian and U.S. national champions and Futurity Reining winners of over $100,000 in prize money. It was Rod Matthiesen, longtime in-house trainer at Eleanor’s Arabians, who urged Eleanor to buy Hesa Zee+/ in the first place.

Volume 44, No. 2 | 23


ElEanor Hamilton “By 1995, I was dedicated to breeding great working western Arabian horses,” says Eleanor. “Hesa Zee+/ was having one of his best years in the show ring. He had been Champion Reiner at Regions 4 and 5 and was at the Canadian Nationals when we agreed to buy him. It was a proud moment for Eleanor’s Arabians because he was the 1995 Canadian Reserve National Champion Reiner and it was the first time I was announced as his owner at a horse show.” Hesa Zee+/’s in-house, Quarter Horse counterpart is the 10-year-old stallion, Little Sorrel Peppy, a son of the King Ranch foundation sire for twenty years and winner of the NCHA Futurity and Derby, Peppy San Badger. Peppy San Badger is the Leading All-Time Cutting Horse Sire, LTE $172,710.00. He was inducted into the Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2008. Little Sorrel Peppy’s oldest offspring at Eleanor’s are now started under saddle and well on their way as Half-Arabian reining horses. “Both of these stallions are major factors in the current and future success of our purebred and Half-Arabian reining

programs,” Eleanor says, “but before they came, my senior stallion and one of the main reasons why I started breeding working western Arabians in the first place, was Crown Musc+. I was very intrigued with Arabians in the 70’s and early 1980’s and I started out by going to the Sahara Sands and other Arabian shows at the Minnesota Fairgrounds. I then discovered Scottsdale. At the Karho Sales I bought some of my first Arabians and saw *Muscat for the first time. He was an amazing Arabian; so charismatic, and soon, I bought one of his sons, Crown Musc+. But honestly, it was my trainer, Rod Matthiesen, who made Crown Musc+ a reiner. Did I say honestly? He made me a reiner too!” Eleanor Hamilton began raising Arabians in 1984 and had her first major champion in 1986 with the Crown Musc+ daughter Fire Musc+, a regional champion and reserve reining amateur horse, as well as a three-time national reining top ten. Crown Musc+ began his show career as a western pleasure horse and is a Cass A champion in that discipline, as well as a multi-regional winner in open and amateur reining.


ElEanor Hamilton “Crown Musc+ had so much to offer and I was such a neophyte,” sighs Eleanor. “I know so much more now. I’ve learned about training, riding, showing, breeding … everything, and I could probably show him and use him more to his real potential today. I can see and appreciate his quality and what he is now, so much better than I could years ago. If I could just go back and make higher use of all his wonderful talents and breeding possibilities … I regret that. On the bright side, I have some Hesa Zee and four of his sisters by Xenophonn.

wonderful daughters in the broodmare band and I still have a good, viable store of frozen semen from this great stallion and we are using it to maintain dense bone, grit and bottom in our purebred working western bloodstock.” In addition to her purebred program, Eleanor has launched a substantial Half-Arabian program, beginning with the Quarter Horse stallions CG Colonel Jac (Triple Colonel) and General Dynamics (Colonel Freckles), and with outside breedings to horses as impressive as AQHA World Champion Cutting and Reining, Smart Chic Olena. Eleanor has several very well-bred Quarter Horse mares in her broodmare band now, as well. This summer she procured another, a Tuff N Busy mare, with the help of her Sulphur Springs, Texas, reining trainer, Gary Ferguson, and his wife Tami. Eternaly Tuf N Chexy is a 9-year-old buckskin mare and a full sister to the great 3-time World Champion, Good N Busy. “This Tuf N Busy mare has that super cool Tuf N Busy personality. I’m sure that she thinks she is a person,” quips Tami. “She has that great King Fritz bone and foot and is a beautiful, low-headed mover. The Tuf N Busy daughters have been a super cross on Nu Chex To Cash. They produced Craig Johnson’s Too Busy Cashin Chex, NRHA LTE: $42K plus, 2006 NRHA Futurity Finalist, winner of the 2006 SWRHA Futurity and the 2006 NSRHA Futurity, and Nu Tuf Lil Chex, NRHA LTE: $12,044, 7th in the 2007 NRBC Non-Pro Derby.” Half-Arabian show horses sired by Hesa Zee+/ and Crown Musc+ out of Quarter Horse mares are already well-known on the Arabian show circuit. Most recently, Eleanor has

Volume 44, No. 2 | 25


ElEanor Hamilton been winning up a storm on her good mare, CMS Little Sierra (Crown Musc+ x Smart Little Sierra AQHA). In 2011 and 2012, Eleanor and CMS Little Sierra brought home two Canadian National top tens and two U.S. National top tens in H/A amateur reining competition. This year Eleanor decided to reverse this successful cross and she made the decision to breed out to three different Quarter Horse stallions with her purebred Arabian mares sired by Hesa Zee+/, Crown Musc+ and Xenophonn. These stallions include Smoking Whiz (Topsail Whiz) LTE: $117,000, CW Conquistador Whiz (Topsail Whiz) LTE: $110,225 and Chexamillion, a son of Nu Chex To Cash, NRHA Hall Of Fame and NRHA Million Dollar Sire, sire of 262 money-earners of over $2,659,000. Eleanor frequently rides pleasure horses, as well as reiners, and has shown them with considerable success on both the regional and national show circuits. Her current mount is Hesa Fire Walker, a 4-year-old Hesa Zee+/ son out of the well-known Crown Musc+ daughter, Fire Musc+. This is classic Eleanor Hamilton breeding. The pair was top five out of 19 at the recent Region 10 show in June and Eleanor is looking forward to competing with the gelding at the Canadian Nationals in August.

Winner of the 2013 APAHA Distinguished Service and Amateur Working Western Awards.

“This is Fire Walker’s second year of showing. I have him in training with Hoyt and Pam Rose and they do a great job for me,” grins Eleanor. “I started with him in May at the Sahara Sands Spring Classic and I’ve honestly shown the horse more than I’ve schooled him! He’s a lot of fun to ride and I can’t wait to show him in Canada.”


ElEanor Hamilton Along with correct legs, good feet, strong bodies and heart, Eleanor is careful to add disposition at the top of the list of characteristics she demands from horses she produces. “The horses I breed must have the temperament to go along with their talents,” Eleanor notes. “Let’s face it, I’m in my 70’s and I need a quiet horse with a true Arabian disposition for reining; a horse that can go from spins and sliding stops to taking anyone from small children to ladies like me for a safe ride. Disposition is critical in a working western horse. They have to have courage and the will to complete the task and they have to be able to relax and know when it’s time to settle down. That’s what I breed and it shows in our many champions that have made the transition smoothly from open to amateur to youth to children.”

Eleanor Hamilton has spent a great deal of her life as an active member of the Arabian horse community. She is a voting member of four local AHA clubs, longtime President of the Arabian Reining Horse Association (ARHA) and, until just recently, the Secretary of the Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders. She has been a recipient of the Horsemen’s Awards on several occasions, most recently this past February when she received two awards: the 2012 Amateur Working Western Award and Distinguished Service Award. Eleanor Hamilton is the breeder of 20 national winners (11 purebred Arabians and 9 Half-Arabians). Together they have won 45 national top ten awards and 11 national and reserve national championships, predominantly in reining, but also in western and hunter pleasure. As of January, 2013, Eleanor Hamilton has bred a total of 53 champions at her family farm in Rogers, Minnesota.

“I want to encourage people in their middle age, or any age, to enjoy their horses,” says Eleanor. “If you can ride and you are comfortable on your horse at all gaits and speed, you can rein. I tell people frequently, ‘look at me … just look at me! If I can do this, anybody can do this! Get out there and enjoy your horses now!’”

Leaders Of The Times: July Calendar Feature

Sydney Dazzo by Kara Larson

The month of July in the Arabian Horse Times calendar features young rider and handler Sydney Dazzo. A successful and passionate Arabian exhibitor, this Albuquerque native discovered her love for riding and horses at a young age—on a family vacation at a Dude Ranch in Colorado. After this trip, Sydney began taking weekly horseback riding lessons at a facility close to her Albuquerque home. With a couple of years of lessons under her belt, Sydney then participated in a horseback riding summer camp at a local Arabian barn. And, as luck would have it, six months later, the Dazzo’s bought their first HalfArabian show horse. Fast-forward to today— as years of practice, many horses, national championships, and innumerable memories Sydney Dazzo and He Be Showy DFA (Showkayce x She Be Noble) with the Arabian horse Youth National Champion HA/AA Gelding Stock/Hunter JTH 17 & Under amount, Sydney’s passion for showing continues to That may have been an enlightening moment for mom, grow exponentially. “I can’t explain the overwhelming but for Sydney, the show ring memories are the ones that desire to show. The plan was to show through my “youth she hopes to hold on to forever. “There have been many years” and then concentrate on college. By October of my freshman year in college, I was watching U.S. Nationals good show ring memories, but the one I am most proud of occurred at the 2012 Youth Nationals. A couple of on the live feed in my dorm and texting my mother about days before the UPHA class, I decided to change from all the wonderful new horses. My mom said she knew at my equitation horse to my Half-Arabian English horse that moment that I could never give up showing.” 30 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


for that class. Not only was the new horse more of a challenge for me to ride, but it would also be the first time I performed a pattern on him. It was exciting to successfully complete the rail work and pattern with him and receive a top ten prize.” Beyond her successful past Youth Nationals, the show holds more significance than the ribbons and roses offer. “Having Youth Nationals in Albuquerque definitely makes it more special than other shows in so many ways. First of all, I love the opportunity to share my love of the Arabian horse with my friends and family. Many people don’t understand exactly what is involved with showing an Arabian horse, but all gain an appreciation of this beautiful breed once they have experienced the “Youth” environment.” Sydney continues, “Also, being able to share our local culture, food and most of the time, beautiful weather with all the youth participants and trainers is a thrill.  I would like to encourage everyone to try our local red and green chile.” As a youth exhibitor, Arabians have the ability to change everything. The shows offer a whole alternate world filled with new friends, wins and losses alike, and most importantly, the opportunity to really bond with the Arabian horse. And for Sydney, a seasoned and talented rider and handler, the Arabian has an impact on her future. “Though you never know what the future has in store for you, I certainly hope Arabians will always be in my life. The Arabian horse not only has provided me with great joy in my life, but joy for my WHOLE family. My parents have been a constant support in all my Arabian endeavors and we have now started to breed a few Arabians. My younger nieces are also starting to ride and show these beautiful horses. It’s amazing how it becomes a family activity.” n

Lori Ricigliano, the Region 9 judge adds, “This is one of the friendliest horse shows I’ve been to. I was also impressed with the quality of horses here.” Horses, trainers, and exhibitors from AL, GA, MS, TN, SC, NC, FL, LA, TX, and CA, as well as several National Champions competed at this year’s show.

2013 Iowa Gold Star Futurity Preview

An Arabian Luau For All by KARA LARSON

From August 30th to September 2nd, the Gold Star Futurity Show will transform the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa, into a beach-themed and fun-filled venue for exhibitors and spectators alike. Anyone who has been to the Gold Star in years past knows that it is truly a fresh and one-of-a-kind horse show experience. In her second year as the Iowa Arabian Horse Association President, Jessica Maldonado shares her thoughts on what the unique event has to offer. “One of the things that the Gold Star has become known for is the annual “theme” of the show. Whether it was the “Roaring 20s,” the “Wild Wild West,” “Pirates,” or this year’s “Beach” theme, it’s always fun to see everyone get into the costume contest, decorations, and overall atmosphere of the show.”

S

o, what does this beach or “Hawaiian Luau” theme include? Maldonado shares the details of how this year’s theme is being carried out. “There are lots of fun things we are doing to incorporate the theme into this year’s show. For starters, we are breaking from our traditional yellow rose garlands for the champions and changing to a garland that looks like a Hawaiian “lei,” so there is literally an opportunity to get “lei’d” at the Iowa Gold Star!” Maldonado continues, “we are also bringing the Stallion Auction and Dinner back to the fairgrounds after several years of being off site at a hotel, and hosting it in the sand in the Pavilion for a good-old fashioned beach party. There will be volleyball, beach balls, and much more! As always, we encourage attendees to dress for the theme at the Auction and we will once again be giving away a free stall for next year’s show to the winner of the costume contest. There is also rumor of a hog roast, so folks should make sure to connect with us on Facebook© to get all the latest updates and details on the fun we have planned.” Beyond the new theme and bringing the stallion auction back to the fairgrounds, there are a few additions made to the show. “Listening to feedback from last year, we have consolidated the show into four days instead of five, so we are starting on Friday this year. This helped us move

“The Gold Star is not just a horse show, it’s a family event designed for everyone to have fun. It’s also a chance to qualify for Nationals while you also compete and enjoy the futurity component.” —Kim Matthias, longtime Gold Star committee member and Iowa breeder

the Auction and Party to Saturday night, so more people will be in town for it, truly making it the highlight of the weekend. Dinner will be catered in and Iowa’s own Band “Eleventh Hour” will headline the Auction after-party, so people better remember their dancing shoes! We are expecting a huge crowd, so VIP tables can be reserved as part of a sponsorship package.” As for the wellknown auction portion of the show, Maldonado shares one more alteration. “Once again, based on feedback, we are selling all of the purebred stallion lots live again versus starting them online like we did last year. We will have people available to take call-in bids, so people around the Globe are still able to participate! The Half-Arabian auction will be online just like past years, so it’s a great way to shop for your next Half-Arabian breeding.” Popular events like the dog races and the Progressive Barn party will take place Friday afternoon, offering a chance to compete with your canine pals and time to mingle with other barns and friends at the show as well. Maldonado shares one more popular return for the 2013 show. “Returning again this year are the 3- to 4-year-old jackpot challenge classes for the western and English divisions. Open to any 3- or 4-year-old horse, this is a great opportunity to get your U.S. Nationals Futurity contender in the ring in a snaffle and martingale to practice, with the bonus of a little extra prize money!” 22

In closing, Maldonado and the Gold Star hope you’ll consider attending an event that is centered on the Arabian horse, but still knows the importance of keeping entertainment, positive energy, and fun in the mix as well. “The Gold Star has long prided itself on being not only a highly-competitive horse show, but also a fun atmosphere for breeders, trainers, exhibitors and spectators. We recognize that people have an abundance of choices in this industry, so we are grateful that they choose to participate in our futurity and horse show, and want to make sure they experience world-class competition with a little entertainment mixed in as well.” ★

“It’s the greatest show on Earth! The most fun and excitement an amateur can have due to the ‘big show’ feel at a cost-friendly price.” —Janna Schultz Eiberger, breeder and exhibitor

2013 Region 12 Hall of Fame

For 60 years this coming Christmas day, Kitty and I will have been married and shared our love as a family with our two special sons, Stan Jr. and Steve. We now have four wonderful grandchildren and one great grandchild, and all are involved and love the Arabian breed as we do.

Thank You, Everyone, For A Lifetime Of Friendship, Memories And Love!

Owners: Stanley and Kitty White Trainers: Stanley White and Steve White 1001 West Hwy. 316 ~ Citra, Florida, 32113 Ph: 352.595.4265 ~ Fax: 352.595.1738

Our journey with the Arabian began in 1962, training for Bazy Tankersley at Al-Marah Arabians in Bethesda, Maryland, and did so for six special years. In 1968 we arrived at Don Ford’s Lancer Arabians in Brighton, Michigan, and trained among others, Asaad, National Champion Stallion and National Champion English horse. Around 1977, Lancer moved to Reddick, Florida, and we built their new facility for training and breeding some incredible horses there, as well. With the dispersal auction of Lancer Arabians in 1980, Kitty and I opened and built our own training and breeding facility, and Grandeur Arabians was born. 51 years later, we are fortunate and extremely proud to have owned, trained, and bred hundreds of National Champion, Reserve and Top Ten Arabians and Half-Arabians, all of which lent us to our favorite part of it all—having all of you as our extended family. For us, family is not defined by blood, but by a mutual love, a love of all of you and the Arabian horse. Thank you for twice awarding me APAHA Horseman of the Year, the APAHA Lifetime Achievement Award and now, 2013 Region 12 Hall of Fame. These awards stand next to my most treasured award of all, the love of Kitty, my family, and from all of you— the award closest to my heart.

— Stanley White P.S. Come visit us; who knows, I may just have a horse for you! Volume 44, No. 2 | 83

The American Southeast—

Where The Stars Come Out by MARY KIRKMAN

Just about anyone in Region 12 can give you good reasons why the area is important in the Arabian industry today. And many of those reasons are not opinions; they are facts. For instance, Region 12 is one of the country’s largest regions, both by geographic area and by equine population. Or, the region’s prime show location, the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter, has been hailed by horsemen as one of the best equine competition facilities in the country. Or, Region 12 residents over the years have been creative and enthusiastic about their regional show; with such innovations as the Spotlight Futurity, the Region 12 Championships have grown steadily. While many other shows have seen their attendance numbers fall, Region 12’s statistics have maintained a pretty consistent upward trajectory, annually attracting around 700 horses. The bottom line is that people like Region 12— the horses, the community of horse people, and its centerpiece horse show.

Inaugural Region 12 Arabian horse Hall of Fame honoree Stanley White.

Roxann Hart, who has watched the Region 12 Championships grow since they were founded during her husband Karl’s tenure as regional director, describes its popularity. “You know how Scottsdale has a draw? We all ask each other, ‘Are you going to Scottsdale? Are you going to Scottsdale? It’s kind of like here: ‘Are you going to Region 12?’ People feel that it’s something neat to do, to go to and enjoy. You know you’re going to see good horses.” As usual, Region 12 management introduced a few new twists to the show in 2013. This year, a fourth judge was introduced, which allowed one official to be rotated in and out of each three-judge panel. The shake-up got high marks, as it offered a broader range of opinion. And this year, Region 12 introduced a Hall of Fame. With the number of outstanding owners, breeders, trainers and exhibitors who have called the Southeast home over the years, some people might have argued it was long overdue. What everyone agreed on was that the two individuals selected as its inaugural members would be at top call for any Arabian horse Hall of Fame: attorney, owner, breeder and longtime enthusiast Karl Hart, and trainer, owner, breeder, showman and horseman extraordinaire Stanley White. 92 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

Karl Hart’s contributions to the Arabian horse breed can be classified on several levels. He and his wife, Roxann, own Rohara, one of the industry’s leading breeding and showing establishments. But personal contributions to the industry? Over half a century—during which he also was developing one of Florida’s leading law practices—he has provided so many services that a list would have to begin with “A partial list of his many accomplishments … .” Through six terms as regional director, he was known for the time and effort he put into learning his constituents’ views and working to improve the region. He served as president of the Arabian Horse Club of Florida, and was on the board of directors not only of the Arabian Horse Association (IAHA as it was known for much of that time), but for 18 years, also was on the board of the U.S. Equestrian Federation. There, too, he was on several committees. His wise guidance and hours of free legal service were invaluable during the time that the organization was faced with a series of anti-trust lawsuits; it was largely due to Karl Hart that the suits were settled and USEF and its equine community of show horses was able to move forward. For years following, he headed the USA Equestrian Trust, which distributes significant funding to deserving equine projects.


“It was a real honor to be out there with someone like Stanley,” Hart said after the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and was modest about his own achievements. “A lot of people helped me do it. I read some of their names out, and some of them were out in the ring with me, but there were a lot of people that did it over a great many years.” “Karl has had a lot of accolades in his life,” says Roxann Hart. “But I would say that this one meant an awful lot to him, because it showed that the horsemen, who he appreciates so much and worked so hard for, appreciated what he did.” Stanley White is one of the most accomplished horsemen in the breed—in anyone’s breed, actually. His experience in Arabians goes back more than half a century (a lot more), and there are few titles in the North American show ring that he has not won. Over the years, he trained for some of the industry’s giants, and he has handled some of the top horses in the breed. If that sounds too general, that is because a list of all of White’s horses and the awards they have won would look like a telephone directory for a

fairly large city. He has lived all over the country, but when he and his wife, Kitty, decided to settle down, they chose central Florida. And that was Region 12’s good fortune. Asked how he felt when he learned that he would be inducted into the new Hall of Fame, White was typically modest, and quick with a quip. “Karl Hart deserved it, but I didn’t,” he said in his deep southern drawl. Then he turned serious. “Well, it meant everything in the world to me. It’s wonderful, the time and thought that people put in, in giving me an award like that. Basically, I love people and I love the Arabian horse. For this to happen is above and beyond anything you could imagine. It was a great honor.” For a closer look at Region 12, following is an introduction to a selection of people and horses who call the Southeast home. They represent the broad spectrum of the Arabian horse breed—from individual riders to large operations, in a variety of disciplines, with goals and priorities as diverse as they are as people. Their common denominator is that each, in his or her way, is doing something positive with Arabian horses.

Beloveds Arabians Patricia Dempsey Lady Lake, Fla. People who meet Patricia Dempsey now might be tempted to think that she is new to Arabians, and it is true that her current level of participation began only months ago. But her experience in the breed began in 1978, and includes some first-hand involvement in some pivotal moments in its history. Back in the day, she owned Wapiti’s Beloved Arabians in Clark, Colo., located in the middle of a national forest, where she maintained “about 40 or 50” horses. She was active not only as an owner, but also for the breed as a whole. In the 1980s, when Colorado State University veterinarians were exploring transported semen, she worked to set up the first stallion breeding auction in the industry to fund the research, and later, when embryo transfer was on the table, she worked on its behalf as well. Another commitment was as chairperson of special events for the Arabian Horse Trust during the time that the Trust built its own building in Westminster. And she was a dedicated supporter of the shows, presenting major awards at the U.S. Nationals (stallion halter) and Scottsdale for more than two decades. On a more personal front, she bred one of the earliest Bey Shah youngsters to win a major title in the show ring; her Kerida Shadow WA won the 1986 Cal-Bred Futurity from a class of 160 contenders. With all that going on, why did she ever get out of Arabians? She did most of her work herself, she says, even in winters that included 100 feet of snow. Miniature Arabians were simply a better option for a five-foot-four woman. Finally, seven years ago, she made a change; she kept the ranch, but moved to Lady Lake, Fla., about 25 south of Ocala. She still has the miniatures, and lately added alpacas to the mix—and this year, she returned to full-sized Arabians when friend Chandler Marks invited her to become a partner in a 2-day-old Selket Marque son they named Behold I Am. Since then, more horses have been acquired: Rohara Via Donna, Ava Afire, Honor Me Noble BF, Magnums Angel JD and the unanimous 2013 Region 12 Champion 2-YearOld Filly, Rohara Marcalyssa.

Patricia Dempsey

Dempsey laughs that the more things change, the more they remain the same. When she reconnected with Roxann and Karl Hart recently, she was planning a trip to the World Cup in Las Vegas. “Roxann and Karl and I have known each other since 1980,” she says. “We met when we were sitting at the same table at the Wayne Newton sale in Las Vegas. So, I said, ‘I’m going to the World Cup, if you want to come. I’ve got plenty of room for you at the table.’ So they did, and there we were, back in Las Vegas at the same table, 33 years later.”

Belvedere Farm LLC Mickey Womble Cedartown, Ga. Belvedere Farm LLC has been on the Arabian scene for 20 years, but its evolution as a top-level full service facility has been gradual—and at Belvedere, “full service” means full. The 160-acre farm accommodates up to 80 horses, and offers its clients a range of activities from casual trail riding to nationals competition. It all began when owner Mickey Womble started breeding and showing halter horses. He enjoyed a few performance


horses as well, and when his daughter, Sarah Beth, began sharing in the fun, they stepped up their performance commitment. Four years ago, trainer Tara Carpio came aboard, and Belvedere, which had been private, opened to clients; she is the one, Womble says, who facilitates the farm’s broad level of service. With more than two decades’ experience in the industry, she offers a background not only in training, but in breeding and equine management as well. Importantly, he adds, she is a real team player, working with veterinarians, farriers and other trainers to make sure each horse has what it needs to succeed. Belvedere’s show contingent is best known now for its youth and adult amateurs, who have a promising record of national titles. The farm’s most recent awards are top tens at Region 12 and two silver supreme championships at the Egyptian Event (Ricardo Rivera presented the horses Carpio trained and prepared). Womble now looks forward to watching Moondance Kid BF, a son of Sundance Kid V and Magdalena V (which makes him a full sibling to two national champions), compete in the futurities this year. The breeding operation, headed by Womble’s U.S. National Reserve Champion Apalo until he was sold last year, now features a selection of stallions owned by clients. In his personal breeding program, Womble has used several sires; he still patronizes Apalo in halter, and has preferred Afire Bey V, Afires Heir and Sundance Kid V for performance.

Grounding the whole farm concept is a growing reputation for its outstanding equine care and management, including rehabilitating horses with injuries. Under Carpio’s guidance, nutrition is prioritized, along with veterinary and farrier care. “Tara really is a rising superstar,” says client Nancy Janovic. “Her horses are beautifully conditioned, and she builds a team environment at the farm; everyone participates in the training and development of their horses, and their own skill sets. She works equally well with both the horses and the people (especially the junior riders), which is sometimes unusual. She’s a great communicator.” “My perspective is to encourage that the client has the opportunity to enjoy a relationship with a horse,” Womble says. “If you’re going to enjoy this, you need a healthy, happy horse that is of a quality that can compete on whatever level you want to. And everything needs to be on the up and up, and done as well as it can be done. We believe that we are able to facilitate healthy and happy horses, and that’s our primary goal.”

Grandeur Arabians Stanley and Kitty White Citra, Fla. Nobody in the Arabian industry today offers the history that Stanley White Sr. does—nearly 60 years at the highest levels as a trainer and breeder, with expertise in just about every division and national championship trophies in most. But anyone, even Superman, is allowed to slow down, and White, who admits to being older than he ought to be, has decided to cut back. He won’t stop fooling with horses, he says; he’ll just have more latitude to do as he pleases. His decision offers a world of opportunity for those interested in fine Arabians, because over the coming months, much of Grandeur’s deep resource of equine talent will be available for purchase. The farm’s breeding program has long been prolific; at one time, the Whites bred 35 to 40 foals annually. White’s eye for talent, high standards, and ruthless culling enabled them to field that level of program. At present, there are about 50 horses in residence, in varying levels of training. Most of the candidates are English-oriented.

And we have two more full sisters to him. They really are top quality horses.” Although in many ways he hates to see some of his treasures moving on, he is happy about the opportunity it will provide others—and he is adamant about presenting the horses at their best. “We are spending the time to get them well trained and ready to go,” he says. “None of them that are for sale have been shown, so regardless of their age, they’re fresh horses. Basically what we have in mind is national champion quality, and we want to place them with the right people, so they will have a good chance.

It is about each horse individually, he says, and it is about his breeding program as a whole. Now into his second generation, he looks into the future, using the knowledge he gains with each passing year. But day to day? He loves interacting with the horses, establishing relationships. “I decided that I would take up country pleasure driving,” he relates, “and after about nine hours of training with Mary Trowbridge, I competed in amateur-to-drive at Scottsdale and was reserve champion. That’s more about the horse [Miz Vogue VA] than it is about me, but it’s my feeling for the horse that enables me to learn and understand how the human and the horse interact. And it’s phenomenal. “It’s the same thing in the halter competitions,” he continues. “I can’t run like those young kids do, but I’ve

“I’m not going to say that Steve and Shanea aren’t going to show some of them,” he smiles, “but I’m not planning on going back in the show ring. Like the horses, I’m getting kind of long in the tooth.” In May, Stanley White was one of only two inaugural inductees into Region 12’s Hall of Fame for a lifetime of achievements. At this point, he may have earned a rest, but the fact is that his daily routine probably won’t change much, even after Grandeur has been resized. “I love horses,” he says simply, “and I can’t wait to get up in the morning and start working with them.” 96 | A r A bi A n Hor se T i mes

learned some techniques that allow me to show the incredible movement of my horses and not kill myself in the process. It’s how I interact with them.” Hennessey says it all starts with the breeding. “We’re not looking just for ‘pretty,’ we’re looking for appropriate conformation,” he notes. “I pride myself on the fact that our horses have great movement; we try very hard to breed that into our program. At the same time, we try to have beauty, because that’s what the world wants. But, we don’t breed for the market. We breed for the horse.” Their method is well-defined. Hennessey maintains a book of information on all his mares, and each breeding season, he, friend Kirk Bardole and farm manager George Zbyszewski identify a list of stallions that are appropriate for the mares. They also travel the world, looking at as many horses as possible and studying their get, noting the characteristics of each that appear consistently. And they breed for both halter and performance, using the same techniques. (Currently heading the Hennessey Arabian LLC performance division is the English and park stallion H Mobility H, an MHR Nobility son in training with Mary Trowbridge.) The routine at the farm is equally well-considered. Because the horse is a social animal, Hennessey says, stall walls are about four and a half feet high, which allows the horses to interact freely with each other. “Every horse can touch another horse,” he says. “They know each other, develop relationships.” Foals build relationships with humans from the beginning, as each is handled on a daily basis; it all leads to horses with willing temperaments who learn quickly and work well with people. The Hennessey Arabian philosophy is simple, he says. “First and foremost, we care about our horses.”

Julie Wall Hicks Lakeland, Fla. For Julie Wall Hicks, the standout attraction to her horses is their personality. “My first Arabian was a HalfArabian, William Starbuck, and I just loved him,” she says. “He would give me his all.”

Julie Wall Hicks with Rohara Emissary.

Now she has three Arabian geldings, and she not only shows, but cares for them and trains or works them herself. The senior member of the team, at 17, is Milano Bey, by JK Amadeus and out of a Lamolin mare; next, at 13, is Rohara Beaujolais, by Afire Bey V, from a Bey Shah daughter; and the youngest is 4-year-old Rohara Emissary, an Aria Impresario son, out of a Magnum Psyche mare. Hicks originally rode her Half-Arabian in the hunter jumper division, but when he developed foot problems, she switched to dressage to accommodate him and discovered that she really enjoyed the discipline. “[The way it is structured], I can move up through the ranks,” she says. “And there’s always room for advancement and improvement.” With Milano Bay, she already has shown successfully to the fourth level. To hone her skills, she takes weekly lessons from trainer Linda Jaskiel Brown, and periodically participates in clinics with Arabian dressage specialist Greta Wrigley. “You always can strive to be better everyday with yourself and with your horse,” she says. “I really enjoy the teamwork, and Arabians are so wanting to please. Of course, they are beautiful, but they are so willing. They’re happy if I just do a light tap or if I push them. They always seem to want to work.” Volume 44, No. 2 | 97


Milano Bey has retired now, and Hicks has turned her focus to Rohara Emissary. “I am training and preparing him for dressage,” she says, “but Rohara had previously shown him in halter, and he’d done well. So, I’ve opted to start showing him in halter, with dressage coming behind.” In May, she led Emissary to the Region 12 Championship for Geldings In-Hand AOTH.

Havice, originally from North Carolina, knows his business as a breeder. He has studied horses since he was a horsecrazy kid who read a Registry brochure and convinced his mother to get into the breed. He was so into the horses that longtime breeder Margaret Shuey, who was known to be very private, welcomed him to her farm as a pre-teenager. They would talk pedigrees and breeding horses for hours.

“Basically, I just do this for the passion,” she offers. A mechanical engineer, she appreciates the relief from the daily stress. “They’re my drive and my relaxation. When I walk outside, I can forget everything, all the day’s hassles. My horses are my escape.”

Then real life intervened. In college, Havice played basketball for Duke, before going to law school and eventually signing on as a prosecutor in Polk County, Fla. “He was a top murder trial lawyer for many years,” reports Karen Havice. “He was head of his division, in charge of numerous lawyers, and even was tapped by Janet Reno to work for her, but he decided he would rather retire early.” And so he did—to follow his old passion of breeding horses. He had returned to Arabians in the early 1990s when he purchased A Fancy Miracle, “a skinny 2-year-old with a pretty head.”

Magnum Arabians Lank and Karen Havice Williston, Fla. In 1994, when Lank Havice bred his *Sasaki daughter, A Fancy Miracle, to Padrons Psyche, he was hoping for a chestnut show filly. Instead, he got a colt that he named Magnum Psyche, one of the most successful halter sires and show horses of the modern era. It was not until last year that Magnum’s full sister, Merveille, arrived, and she is everything Havice envisioned years ago.

“He does not breed for the market,” Karen observes. “He studies pedigrees and breeds for what he thinks would be a good cross. And obviously he loves to see a good video and pictures, but the pedigree, to him, is absolutely crucial.” Like her husband, Karen has loved horses since childhood. As a 12-year-old in Miami, she met Karl and Roxann Hart, and to be around Arabians, she cleaned stalls at Rohara, groomed, and did whatever it took to learn more. As an adult, by then an international real estate lawyer, she became their client, just as Lank was, but they never met; he was into halter and rarely attended shows, while she was a rider who loved the circuit. It was Roxann who set them up on a blind date one Valentine’s Day, and they were married three years ago. “We are a small breeding operation,” Karen says of their 75-acre farm about eight miles from Rohara. It is home to 31 horses, but not all are on the property.

In their time together, Karen has grown to love halter (her 2010 wedding present from her husband was Rohara Americanlegend,


whose show ring triumphs have included national championships or reserves in both halter and English disciplines). “It’s what Lank breeds for and always has, and it’s extremely exciting for me to watch these horses go in the ring for us,” she says. “This year, John Rannenberg won Region 12 Yearling Colt with a colt that we bred.” The bottom line of the Magnum Arabians philosophy is its owners’ shared love of Arabians. “Lank is up every morning at 4, and I can almost never get him off the farm,” Karen smiles. “This was what he always wanted to do, and it’s absolute heaven for him, and for me and our son, who is 9 years old and just starting to really get into riding. I can’t tell you how fortunate we are.”

Linda Musso Birmingham, Ala. For Linda Musso, horses are more than just a pastime. Of course, they are a beloved addiction, but for her, they are also a health care incentive. For several years, she has battled a form of MS, and horses have been such good therapy that she calls herself one of the luckiest people in the world. To begin with, Arabians offer enjoyable exercise—and a lot more. “I go to the barn, I feed carrots. After I ride, I help bathe them, and take whoever I’m fooling with out to graze,” she says. “By the end of the day, everything that is in the past is in the past. My horses are a reason for me to stay healthy. I don’t want to go work out? No, I’ve got to, because I want to ride, and I want to be able to enjoy my horses. Riding is the best thing. It helps keep me strong, and mentally it gives me a goal.” She focuses now on two Half-Arabians, her country English pleasure gelding Net Worth LOA, and the yearling Double Or Nuttin’, by the Saddlebred stallion Undulata’s Nutcracker and out of her old country mount, Ingennue. Recently, she offered Ingennue to close friend Beth Weatherford, and looks forward to watching them show. “We’ve got two horses,” she says, “and I can ride one and play with my yearling. Well, I mean, that’s enough on your plate to say grace over.” Musso, who rode as a child, has been in Arabian show horses for about 10 years. When she vacationed a lot in Scottsdale, she rode with Bob Battaglia, and now, from

Linda Musso aboard Net Worth LOA.

Alabama, she keeps her show contenders at Rohara (“It’s a Four Seasons™ hotel for horses,” she says). In between visits to practice, she polishes her skills by riding at a barn near her home in Birmingham. She laughs when she considers her periodic visits to Rohara; it isn’t all about practice. “What gives me pleasure is to walk in the barn, call one of my horse’s names, and they just talk back to me,” she grins. “You cannot put a price on that. They come right over and go, ‘woo-hoohoo, woo-hoo-hoo,’ you know? Am I enforcing negative behavior? Sure. But, you know what? John doesn’t have to put up with me but about once in every four to six weeks.” She turns serious. Everything about her Arabian horse involvement is done as a love, she says. She and her husband, Vinnie, love doing the horses together, even if Vinnie, a professional poker player, is hardly hands-on. He just likes watching her ride, and he entertains himself when she’s not in the ring by mentally cataloguing what is going on (ask him any back number, and he’ll give you the horse’s name and rider).

Volume 44, No. 2 | 99


“I love this, and I want to keep on doing it for a lot of years,” Musso reflects. She recognizes that her health makes her a little different from other horse people, but in her mind, it’s not that big a deal. “Even though you’ve got all these bumps in the road, all you need to do is slow down and go over them. Everyone has bumps. It’s just a matter of how big they are.”

Palmetto Arabians Frank and Sara Chisholm Timmonsville, S.C. By the time Region 12 ended this year, it is unlikely that anyone left the showgrounds without having heard the name “Palmetto Arabians.” The farm fielded 19 titlists at the show, for a total of 30 awards, and was named Spotlight Breeder of Distinction. Its senior stallion, Sundance Kid V, was Spotlight Sire of Distinction. Frank and Sara Chisholm came by those awards honestly: they earned them. They joined the Arabian community in 1998, when Sara, a barrel racer in her youth, wanted to return to horses, and they made a full commitment to the breed when Frank realized that he preferred the personality of his wife’s Arabian to that of his Quarter Horse. And then they went through the routine growing pains of equine involvement—determining that they preferred

breeding for western and hunter to other disciplines; reorienting their herd to accommodate it; searching out the sire that would be their foundation; and instituting a program of care that would ensure healthy, strong foals with minds for training. They also took advice along the way. An early mentor was Sheila Varian, and an advisor now is Rob Bick, at RBC Show Horses, where Palmetto Arabians sends horses for training. It was Bick who suggested that they approach Varian about purchasing Sundance Kid V, their favorite stallion. Now, with the 18-year-old son of Desperado V heading their program and a selection of his daughters in the broodmare band, they are taking their next step. The future, they find, is a two-fold project: identifying a successor to Sundance, and finding an outcross for his line. The successor appears to be the homebred PA Kid Khan, out of Kharrea PGA, a Khadraj NA daughter who, before her export to Ajman, won at the Las Vegas World Cup. “Kid is kind of Sundance on steroids,” Frank Chisholm chuckles. “He’s 16 hands and he’s gorgeous, he’s really something.” For the outcross, the Chisholms have chosen the Versace/ Fame VF line. At Scottsdale this year, they purchased SF Sir Real, by Sir Fames HBV and out of Veronica GA, a U.S. national champion futurity filly by Versace. Sir Real, who has spent the past two years in Australia, is a Scottsdale champion, Canadian national reserve champion and AHBA World Cup titlist. Now, with “six or seven” Sundance Kid V daughters in foal to SF Sir Real for 2014, and PA Kid Khan expecting his second crop next year, Chisholm is looking forward to the spring.

It is not only looks and accomplishment that get the attention at Palmetto. For the Chisholms, temperament is a priority. “You need a calm horse that you can depend on,” says Frank. “You don’t need horses that don’t have good minds. We don’t have a place for them in our program. If they’re not smart and they’re not


usable, then they don’t have a good mind and they’re not going to be very trainable. And it’s rare that horses like that excel in the show ring. If they don’t excel in the show ring, I haven’t done a good job breeding.”

Rohara Karl and Roxann Hart Orange Lake, Fla. Nearing 50 years of history in the Arabian breed, Rohara is known for its ability to remain an industry leader, renewing itself as the decades pass. It rose to national prominence in the late 1970s with the stallion Ivanhoe Tsultan, whose eclectic pedigree proved itself important even in an era of “straight” and “pure” bloodlines, and in the years since, it has been home to a roster of top stallions, including Bay El Bey, Exceladdinn, Good Thunder, JK Amadeus, El Nabila B and QR Marc. Majik Of Marwan currently heads the list, and in 2014, ABD Justinian will be added. In addition to its breeding operation, the farm also offers a nationally-acclaimed training and showing division. John Rannenberg, Joe Alberti and Katie Showers offer the training and instruction for Rohara’s representatives and a diverse group of clients, many of whom have been with the organization long enough to qualify as family. At this year’s Region 12, they accounted for 23 champions and reserves, and 35 top fives. A knockout performance, it was overshadowed only by the selection of Rohara’s longtime mentor, Karl Hart, as an inaugural member of Region 12’s Hall of Fame. As if that weren’t enough, Roxann Hart leads a sales effort that is successful globally (they have sold to 19 countries around the world). In what some call a limited market, Rohara bred 20 mares this year, because, Hart observes, “You have to have inventory.” Through the years, the farm’s priority always has been breeding halter horses, she says. In practice, its ring presence in performance has been primarily through its clients, but it also breeds candidates in a wide range of athletic disciplines, in both purebreds and Half-Arabians.

Karl and Roxann Hart

“I want our horses to be able to do something more than just look pretty,” says Hart. “That’s one of the reasons that for years, Rohara often would have the only horse at U.S. Nationals that competed in both halter and performance in the same show, and garnered top ten in both. I think that’s really important.” How do they keep up the quality on so many fronts? Hard work, she responds, and staying abreast with the market. “One of the main things you have to do is travel and watch and learn; it’s terribly important to see as many horses as you can. I want to see at least 2,000 horses a year. That sounds like a lot, but if you go to farms and to a number of shows, you’re going to see it.” And there is her core belief: the genotype must always represent the phenotype. “The pedigree,” she says, “must always represent the horse you see before you.” She thinks back to the early days. “With Tsultan, people came to realize that what you needed was a good horse, a good-producing horse—not so much just what it said on paper,” she recalls. “But that was a new thought at that time.” The market rewarded her then, and it is rewarding her now. “People said, ‘You can’t have both halter and performance.’ And because they told me I couldn’t do that, that’s what I wanted to do.” She laughs. There is one thing she is particularly proud of. “I like to feel that I was the one that coined the Volume 44, No. 2 | 101


phrase, ‘the American bred,’” she says. “In the old days, they called our horses ‘domestic bred.’ And I always replied, ‘My horses don’t do windows!’”

Royal Palm Arabians Barbara Jarabek Sarasota, Fla. Over the years, Barbara Jarabek’s name has appeared in the ownership stream of some of the Arabian breed’s most famous horses. When the legendary Rohara Moon Storm won his first U.S. national championship (in western pleasure junior horse), he did it for Barbara and Allen Jarabek. When the beloved Good Thunder began his long run of national trophies (1990, U.S. and Canadian national championships in pleasure driving), it was for the couple who divided their time between Massachusetts and Florida, where their horses lived at Rohara. They were with Good Thunder through his triumphs in informal combination and his first national reserve championship in English pleasure as well. They enjoyed halter with U.S. National Top Ten Stallion and Youth National Champion Gelding HL Park

Avenue, and wowed the Half-Arabian world when they owned Rohara Americanlegend, a multi-U.S. National champion and Scottsdale supreme champion. And in partnership with Rohara and Morning Star Arabians, Barbara Jarabek bred the show and breeding stallion Shaddofax. Through 30 years in the business, they bred or selected some of the best-known names in the show ring, and when Allen Jarabek died, his wife carried on. “They appreciated the good horse,” says Roxann Hart of her longtime friends. “Barbara definitely has a good eye for a horse, and she is personally involved in selection and breeding decisions for her horses. We’ve bred horses in partnership that have sold to countries all over the world.”

Smoky Mountain Park Jacque and Rod Thompson Lenoir, Tenn. Jacque and Rod Thompson did not start slowly at Smoky Mountain Park. From the time they acquired PS Afire Chief in January 2007, they have been intent on building a top quality Arabian horse operation. They believe in the future, Jacque explains, and they are breeding horses for it—not just a few, but substantial crops of foals. “We were trying to get enough really high quality horses that if someone came here from anywhere in world, they would have a lot to choose from,” she says, and chuckles. “If you’re going to come all the way to Lenoir, Tenn., you have to have a pretty good reason!” She may be laughing, but she is serious. Heading the stallion roster at Smoky Mountain Park is PS Afire Chief (Afire Bey V x Justa Glow, by The Chief Justice), U.S. and Canadian national reserve champion in park and multi-national top ten in pleasure driving. Then there is Baskghazi (Baske Afire x RY Fire Ghazi, by El Ghazi), a 9-year-old U.S. national top ten in English pleasure. And finally, their newest is 7-year-old The Renaissance (ML Afire Dream x Fire Essense, by Pro-Fire). The Renaissance was named unanimous 2009 U.S. National Champion in the English Pleasure Futurity, and in 2013, added the title of Scottsdale champion in English pleasure.

The mares selected for the program offer an equally comprehensive heritage of English performance talent, from such sires as AA Apollo Bey, Afire Bey V, A Temptation, Baske Afire, El Ghazi, MHR Nobility and a host of others. In the face of so much English ability, Thompson makes an important distinction. “Yes, I tried to find performance blood,” she says, “but I also looked for horses who would probably breed a pretty head. If you come to my farm, you will see a lot of ‘trotty,’ highquality horses that are pretty in the face, pretty in the bridle and have a pretty neck on them.” Recently, she also began breeding a few Half-Arabians, which she has found exciting (“They’re a knockout!”). But clearly, her heart is with the purebreds. “I feel like if somebody really loves the Arabian horse, as I do, and they are in a position to propagate them, they should,” she says. “I think it’s a wonderful thing to breed Arabian horses.” With its oldest foals now junior horses, Smoky Mountain Park is in a position to begin selling horses on a broader scale. “I have generations of young horses

coming up, and I do have to be realistic,” Thompson says. “I have to replenish, but I don’t have to keep the numbers climbing as I have.” On the agenda for the near future is either a special sale or a sustained marketing effort. Either way, it will be an expression of the Thompsons’ regard for the Arabian horse, and the role they want to play in its future. Their goal is to make Smoky Mountain Park a resource of English performance Arabians for the breed.

Vicki Humphrey Training Center Vicki Humphrey Canton, Ga. For several years, the story at Vicki Humphrey Training Center has been somewhat the same: a long parade of horses and clients who win ribbons in the ring. Between Humphrey and her daughter, Jessica Clinton, the success rate was staggering. In 2013, however, the face of the training center which is home to that record is changing. “We’re building a 50-stall barn and a 100 by 200-foot arena,” Humphrey says. And they welcomed aboard trainer Gabe DeSoto, not just as

make the mental transition to what the new training center will be. With two rising-star young trainers in the barn, Humphrey knows that if she ever feels like stepping back a little, she can. “I don’t turn over control very easily,” she says. “It’s hard for me. But getting hurt gave me a chance, forced me to, a little. And it’s great. As long as things are the way I expect them to be, the product is what I expect it to be, I’m thrilled to death with it.” Construction on the new facility is set to begin in midSeptember and be completed by the end of the year. It will replace some structures on the property, and overall will add 20 stalls to what is there now. One building will be dedicated entirely to the rejuvenated Atlanta Riding Club, and an instructor recruited to work with its students. It is another nod to the future, Humphrey says, a way to introduce more people to Arabian horses. But in the meantime, new facility and expanded training staff notwithstanding, it is business as usual in the middle of a jam-packed show season.

a third trainer, but a member of the family. He and Jesse Clinton have scheduled their wedding for November 15. Even before DeSoto and the horses he brought, however, VHTC was a busy operation, with a large show string and breeding operation (Hucks Connection V and SF After Shoc are at stud), and at one time, a busy instruction program. Now it is even more comprehensive. They are doing more breeding, Humphrey says, and when the new construction is finished, they will reinstate their Atlanta Riding Club, a creative outreach to the public which had been suspended in the rush of the facility’s other commitments. Ironically, the year so packed with activity and change began with Humphrey sidelined in Africa after an injury during her January vacation. The lay-up actually helped her

Asheville, N.C. Professional singer Maddy Winer remembers saving up to buy her first Arabian; it took her until she was in college, but it was worth it because she had dreamed of owning a horse all her life. Her formal involvement in Arabians dates back nearly 30 years, most of it spent with Rohara. One constant through that time has been Karma Gypsy, the tobiano Half-Arabian who was her mount when she sang the national anthem at the 1994 U.S. Nationals. The 34-year-old mare, who also was the model for a Breyer™ horse, is the only permanent resident at Winer’s North Carolina farm, and, her owner reports, still bucks every time she is called up for dinner. Over the years, Winer has been known primarily for her skill as an amateur western pleasure rider (Im A Rich


Girl was a recent partner), but lately, has added halter to her resume. “I fell in love with a horse Joe Alberti was showing called Maghnus Z,” she laughs. She bought the gelding, then 4, at the 2011 U.S. Nationals, and went to her first show with him— Scottsdale—a few months later. “I’d never shown at Scottsdale,” she says, “and we were the unanimous amateur Half-Arabian Gelding AAOTH winner. That was pretty exciting—I was, like, ‘what am I doing?’” Since then, Maghnus Z has won Region 12 two years in a row, both amateur and open, was named 2012 U.S. National Champion Gelding Stock/Hunter Type, and reserve champion in amateur. But there is one problem. “When I am in a ring with him, all I want to do is watch him,” Winer confesses, “so he kind of trots around me, and I’m just smiling, watching him because he’s so incredible to watch. It’s crazy because I should be concentrating on showing him, but he’s just so beautiful. “When it’s done correctly, amateur halter is a lot harder than it looks,” she adds. “You see trainers that really know what they’re doing make it look so natural and easy, but it is as intricate as any other discipline.” Recently, she added 11-year-old Rohara Talon, who had been out of the ring for six years, to her string, and in their first show together, she led him to the Region 15 gelding championship AAOTH. Trainer Joe Alberti scored the open title with him unanimously. Although Winer is also known as Roxann Hart’s partner in the phenomenal Half-Arabian broodmare Miz American Pie, she has never really been focused on breeding; it is the hands-on involvement with the horses that attracts her most. “I want to be really, really good at what I’m doing,” she says. “I want to show them to

the best of my ability—really make sure I have enough knowledge to do the horse justice. There is so much to learn, I just can’t learn enough. You get off a horse after you’ve had a great ride, and it’s just such a great feeling; you’re floating. Whether you’re on a trail ride or having a lesson, or you’re at a show or whatever it is, something transfixes you when you do a good job with a horse. “I’m really a very, very fortunate person,” she concludes, considering her horses. And she’s pretty lucky with her husband too, she adds. “Jay and I enjoy this together. He says, ‘Instead of a vacation, we’ll just go to horse shows.” n

Gene L aCroix:

A Look At A Horseman, Part iii by Mary Kirkman

For the past two months, AHT has chronicled the life and achievements of Gene LaCroix. In

this final installment of the series, we examine what he has learned from his experiences, and his thoughts on how to renew the popularity of the Arabian breed and expand it in years to come.

106 | ArAbiAn A r A bi A nHorse Hor seTimes T i mes


Gene LaCroix

After more than 50 years

in the Arabian horse business, Gene LaCroix enjoys a unique perspective on its development. He has been at the absolute top, and after the crash in the 1980s, experienced a severe low as well. At one time, he won national championships and jetted around the world with business tycoons; at another, he rented a single room in a friend’s home while he recruited horses to start over. When he looks back now—and when he looks forward, both for himself and the Arabian horse community—he sees the big picture. “Basically, on reflection, I feel like I had a truly wonderful, amazing life,” he says. “I got to experience the American dream as a horseman. There were so many opportunities and experiences, and I am extremely grateful to the horse and my family for providing those opportunities.”

At its height, LaCroix’s life was fairly dazzling, and it didn’t begin or end in the show ring. Family friend Mike Nichols, for whom he had managed a record-breaking horse auction, invited him to invest in the original theater production of “Annie,” and when the show opened on Broadway in April 1977, LaCroix was there. With Nichols, he waited in the early morning hours at Gallagher’s Steakhouse for reviews to come out (a runaway success, the show would score seven Tonys). In 1981, as the fascination with Russian Arabians deepened, LaCroix recognized the need to acquire a top stallion from the Soviet Union, and turned to global businessman and horse owner David Murdock for help. Murdock had no contacts there, but he knew a guy who did—and suddenly he was on a plane to Russia with Murdock and Dr. Armand Hammer, chairman of Occidental Petroleum Corporation. It was not just any plane, however; it was Oxy 1, Dr. Hammer’s private 727, and LaCroix enjoyed steward service in the aft lounge while Hammer and Murdock, in another cabin, negotiated Occidental’s purchase of Iowa Beef for an estimated $795 million in stock. When they landed in Moscow, it was to purchase *Pesniar for $1 million. And those were just two of his heady experiences during that time. He also chatted privately with such stars as Bob Hope and Sammy Davis before their opening acts at Lasma auctions, welcomed celebrities to his parents’ home for Arabian horse seminars, and then routinely accommodated them at sales and benefits. When the tax reform act of 1986 put an end to all of that, his life changed drastically. LaCroix has resisted feeling negative about the darker times which followed, and prefers to see the market crash as a catalyst that made him stronger and gave him a better understanding of reality, of what was really important to him. “Actually, those years where I was fighting for financial survival might’ve been my best learning experience, as

Gene LaCroix

far as dealing with real life,” he says. “my life up until then was like a fairytale. everything worked, which is not to say that my family didn’t work hard, because we did; i worked hard, i was driven, i was challenged, i set my goals high, and most often, we achieved and even exceeded our goals. And everything just settled into place. Then all of a sudden, beginning with the auction sales in ’86, a lot of things started falling out of place.” Among other things, gross sales at the February auctions fell by more than 50 percent, then continued to decline over the next few years, eventually reaching only 10 percent of what they had been. And in 1987, the stock market plummeted, which complicated matters, as many of LaCroix’s clients were facing significant financial losses. He was hit hard. The biggest lesson he learned, he says, was that having a lot of money in itself was not happiness. “i learned that i could find happiness without the 11,000 square foot house, mercedes benzes, Lear jets, limos and chauffeurs,” he reflects. “i found real happiness when i started over and realized i did not need or even want these things. Fortunately, i also found erin, and she shares my values. “i take responsibility for Lasma going corporate and getting too big (and probably too impersonal), and i now realize that i love the hands-on involvement with the horses,” he continues. “i even like starting the morning with cleaning stalls and ending the day with a walk-through of the horses and topping off their water buckets. in fact, we live in our barn, maybe a 2,000-square foot apartment, no new cars. i fly coach and i’m happy. i’m a very lucky guy.” What enabled him to recover? Arabian horses and his wife erin. “i always had confidence in my ability as a horseman,” he says, “and the general Arabian owner and community had confidence in me as a horseman, so there for a few years, while trying to sort my life out, i did some consulting.

“And then Erin and I met and started dating. I shouldn’t say I was never alone, because I spent some lonely times, but when Erin and I got together, I finally found happiness, and I was confident of what we could do. As long as we had our health, we were going to survive.” He chuckles. “The rebuilding sometimes was more fun than building in the first place. Truly, I started from scratch again. Because of the Arabian horse and community, and being happy in my personal life, things started to fall back into place again.” It is fair to ask: in those early years, at a time when he was the one most people looked up to in the Arabian industry, who, in addition to his father, inf luenced him? Universally, he says, they are people who succeeded through their own talent and hard work. The first was singer Wayne Newton, who became a superstar at a young age and then endured the challenges of life in entertainment to remain successful. “I still admire him very much today,” LaCroix says. And, there were the business titans, Hammer and Murdock, and CEO of Schulman Plastics Bill Zekan, Airborne Air Freight magnate John McPherson, and Ames Construction founder Dick Ames, of Cedar Ridge Arabians. “I admired these people and many others because I knew that through their talent, determination and hard work, they didn’t just become very successful;

they were driven, and they made a lot of sacrifices along the way. They had their ups and downs, and they had the guts to follow their decisions and stick with them, blame nobody, and just go on. Another common element, in most cases, was that these people had a lot of humility and kindness, especially to others without such means.” One who remains a friend today is Ames. “He’s a special guy,” LaCroix says. “Through years of thick or thin, he and I have remained personal friends, and the friendship I think is even greater today than ever.” Ames agrees. “The first time I saw Gene LaCroix had to be in the winter of 1968 or 1969,” he reminisces. “We went out to Bell Road, found the LaCroix farm, walked around, and ran across this young kid—I thought maybe he was a mechanic or something. He had a lot of dirt on him (the place at that time was not a show place, just a horse training and breeding farm). But, of course, we found out he was the horse trainer. That is how I met Gene LaCroix. Then, as time went on, I read in one of the trade magazines that this horse trainer was on his way to Russia with a guy by the name of Armand Hammer to try to buy a horse from the Russian government. Wow, what an achievement. I think the bottom line with Gene LaCroix is that he was and still is a hard worker. He has had and still has a big impact on the horse industry.”

Gene LaCroix

L aCroix’s ThoughTs: What it WiLL take to Put the a r abian Front-a nd-Center in the equine WorLd today “There is so much more potential for the breed to grow than is being and has been realized,” Gene LaCroix observes. “The Arabian is a much better ‘product’ than what its market share of the equine industry represents today.” There is no argument that in the demanding competition for the leisure dollar, you have to think out of the box, he says, and it takes work on all levels—from the grassroots to the nationals. “The old saying, ‘if you continue to do the same old things, you continue to get the same old things,’ seems to be holding true with the Arabian industry,” he adds.

At The Grassroots Level

“We need to excite new people to (a) become involved in horses, and then (b) choose the Arabian breed,” he says. “There’s got to be more creativity in the way we not only conduct our horse shows, but how we create and specify our classes. i certainly don’t have a well defined solution, and i don’t recommend we instantly or maybe ever replace our show system as it exists today, but we need to supplement it with events which will appeal to new horse owners and exhibitors in a new way—one that works. excitement, challenge, fun, recognition and value are some of the basic ingredients required to get new people into sustained ownership. “For one idea, i’d suggest we start offering shows for the amateur and youth, whereby from the time the horse arrives on the showgrounds until after it leaves, there is no trainer participation,” he continues. “The amateurs and youths do all the work, grooming, schooling, warming up and showing themselves. i believe the exhibitors could find this kind of show extremely rewarding and self-fulfilling. They’d learn more about 110 | ArAbiAn A r A bi A nHorse Hor seTimes T i mes

their horses and their training, and consequently they’d receive more enjoyment, and make a bigger commitment to the sport in the future. “i have to emphasize—i am not trying to displace or demean trainers in any way. i was and still am a trainer; i understand the cost of training and why trainers have to charge the fees they do. but as it is now, you almost have to have a trainer to successfully compete at shows, and the costs limit the market.” He offers an example of what is working well in the equine industry today. “Part of the success of the dressage is that people can do a lot of it in their backyard,” he says. “When they need help, they can go to a trainer. And because in the dressage discipline, judges issue evaluation sheets after a horse’s tests, it is easier to figure out what you need to work on. What i’m thinking about for the grassroots is shows where you can either train your own horse and go to a trainer for help when you need it, or keep your horse with a trainer and on the Thursday night before the show, pick it up and take it to the show. After the show, you take it back to the trainer, but while you’re at the show, you do everything. “However, a few such shows is not enough,” he cautions. “it will take some time and staying power, and a system that would incorporate local, state, regional and national awards and recognition.” of course, there are costs and rewards to be considered. “All of this would take place on a local level, and probably it would have to be out of the UseF system, so you don’t have to pay the fees,” he says. “i’m not sure how you support it, but maybe jackpot classes and/or


Gene LaCroix grassroots events, there’s got to be a way of presenting a high point system would help provide the rewards (a high point system could award national titles without these rail classes where they’re more entertaining an exhibitor ever having to go to a national show). And and where better horsemanship is recognized, rather jackpot payouts at the end of a show might defray some than just going around and seeing how high you can of the costs of showing, if you had a good weekend. One good thing “What I’m thinking about for the grassroots is shows where about many of my ideas is that somewhere in the horse industry, you can either train your own horse and go to a trainer for some breed is doing something help when you need it, or keep your horse with a trainer and like it already,” he adds. “In this case, I’d say maybe look at how on the Thursday night before the show, pick it up and take it the barrel racers do it (the Quarter to the show. After the show, you take it back to the trainer, Horse Association has been very good about devising grassroots but while you’re at the show, you do everything.” entry for people).” Reminded that the Sport Horse division has employed many of the principles he cites, he nods. “That’s one of the reasons it’s been successful. It’s more of a discipline; its show presentation is singular and judged more objectively and with more accountability. And it’s more affordable.” LaCroix shrugs. “We have to find a way to stand out, because all of the other breeds have rail classes too. Maybe versatility is the answer for us, with grassroots shows where horses are required to score highly in a lot of divisions. But as I said, whatever we do, we need to be more objective in the classes, so that everything is easily understood.” He isn’t finished. “Maybe—just another wild idea—we could have shows which present the rail classes in a new format. They could be more exciting and transparent, and maybe require a little bit more skill as a showman.” He describes a practice that was common when he was a kid. “We had a few judges who, after all the required gaits were performed (sometimes very quickly), would start an elimination process, pulling in each horse from least-best to best. When the competition got down to three or four horses, the gaits would be varied from the norm with more difficult transitions; it would be more like a workoff for the entire class. Spectators would get more excited, the judging was much more transparent and accountable, and for the exhibitors, it was even more exciting and rewarding, especially to the winners.” He stresses that he is not advocating completely replacing what is being done now. “But for these

trot or how low and steady your head is. We have to reinvigorate the show routine—the old walk/trot/ canter/reverse in performance classes isn’t cutting it in attracting new participants on the grassroots level. It doesn’t offer enough fun and reward to sustain participation and encourage ownership.”

The Nationals

At the same time that more creative ways are being used to build the base, the experience also must be improved for those who can afford the more expensive or talented show horses. “From that standpoint, we shouldn’t automatically make it so easy for people with minor qualifications to show at the Nationals, especially in their first few years of exhibiting Arabian horses,” LaCroix says. “We need to make U.S. Nationals much more prestigious and important to owners from all over the world. Truly the best, and only the best, horses should compete, with the best rigorously tested in order to qualify.” If it were up to him, he says, the first way to avoid lesser horses being qualified and entered would be to cut the number of classes and days, which would also decrease the amount of time required to enjoy everything the show has to offer. “A three- or four-day Nationals, where it’s a real honor to get to compete, would be good. Maybe you’re in the top ten of the country before you even qualify to come. Instead of having 400 classes, have maybe 40 or 50.” Volume A PR44, IL No. 20 092 | 111


Gene LaCroix in addition, he says, these competitions should be much more exciting. “We’d have to really ‘class up’ the show facilities and show presentation (i.e., the Celebration show or the saddlebred World Championship show), and present the horses differently.” He has suggestions. “maybe we don’t have as many judges, to facilitate a little more ease in calling the gaits and providing more work-offs. selected halter horses could pose head to head, or, for instance, have trot-offs. And, if i were managing the show, only one person could come in the arena as an attendant for the trophy presentation, and it would be only for the champion. i know my photographer friends will be upset with me for that, but i think these presentations really slow the momentum and prestige of the show.” And finally, importantly: “i’d like to see every class session in the main arena, integrating all disciplines of the Arabian horse.”

“The national shows should be

something so exciting and important that owners would want to attend whether they show or not (and

shorter shows would encourage that). Exhibiting there would become an

ultimate goal, rather than a given.”

A much shorter show may not be realistic for AHA, he concedes, for financial reasons. “so, maybe the U.s. nationals stays big, allowing as many people as possible to exhibit and AHA to fund what it does—but then we have a three- or four-day ‘super nationals.’ That would be a limited number of classes, representing every discipline, for only the best of the best. We also could find some way for racing and endurance horses to compete for their titles at that level. i’m talking only a few classes, with only maybe 10 horses qualified to go. Use green shavings, dress up in a coat and tie, make every class a final, and have it at a place that is very prestigious, where people want to go. it would become a marketplace in addition to everything else.” 112 | ArAbiAn A r A bi A nHorse Hor seTimes T i mes

All of this is not meant to exclude the grassroots people, he adds. “The national shows should be something so exciting and important that owners would want to attend whether they show or not (and shorter shows would encourage that). exhibiting there would become an ultimate goal, rather than a given. Winning a U.s. national Championship would hold more credibility with Arabian owners and breeders throughout the world.”

The High End Of The Market

First, he says, we need to recognize the positive factors in the industry. “The market, particularly for the halter and the racing, is completely driven by the sheiks and the middle easterners,” he notes. “That’s not a fad that’s likely to go away any time soon. significantly, their fondness for the Arabian horse is a great thing for the global Arabian horse industry. Their attitude about Arabians is, i think, healthy. They buy and now aggressively breed these horses more for the sport and for the personal pride of winning, and it’s certainly not about making more money. “Another positive factor, i believe, is that southeast Asia will likely get involved in the coming years, opening yet another tremendous market for the Arabian horse. Thirdly, the number of people who can afford a high quality Arabian horse across the world increases every year. And last, maybe most important, the loyalty factor to the Arabian horse is tremendous in spite of the inadequacies in our shows and our diminishing middle and lower markets. it is a real testament to the Arabian horse, the personal sacrifices people are making to continue owning and showing Arabian horses. “We, as Americans, need to wake up,” he concludes. “The halter breeders need to recognize and accept that in order to preserve, or maybe even regain, world dominance, we need to breed the kind of horses that will win in Paris, europe and the middle east. And, we need to take our best horses to europe and compete. Win or lose, it’s about the exposure of great horses (a few people are doing it already, but not enough). i hear the story that non-middle east-owned horses cannot win. i think it is bs. i’m confident that, in the end, the best horses, representing the required type, excellent conformation, movement and presence will win. And they will set a standard of excellence that will establish new value standards.”


Gene LaCroix That new standards, incorporating the priorities of both North America and other parts of the world, are the goal, he says. “I’d like to see people accept that, yes, the horses have to be extraordinarily beautiful in terms of their eyes and ears and their shape of neck, but they also have to be good horses. I don’t mean to say that the winning horses aren’t good now, but I think more emphasis needs to be put on the shape of the neck, the fineness of the throatlatch, where the neck comes out, and balance and movement. And ‘movement’ doesn’t have to be saddle seat movement, where they’re pointing their knees over level. They’ve just got to be fluid in their motion and carry themselves off their hind ends. “I should add, I also believe that we American performance breeders are really missing out on a huge market in the Middle East and other evolving countries by not exposing these disciplines to these markets.” He understands the hesitance in some countries to embrace some of the American performance disciplines, but is not discouraged. For one thing, in the English division, taking the pads off and showing the horses more naturally would help on the world scene. Basically, the situation reminds him of the 1960s, when he and his family were introducing *Bask to Arabian breeders. “He was very different,” LaCroix recalls, “so, to let other breeders know how good he was, we took his foals on the road and showed all over the country. Sometimes we’d get beat, but overall we did well and the people appreciated our horses.”

But What About The Financial Requirements Of Owning The Very Best Horses?

Although there are plenty of well-funded people in the world who might come to enjoy Arabian horses, LaCroix points out that the top end of the breed still needs to be expanded both globally and domestically. And he points out a way to do it: create ownership syndicates. You want to see your million-dollar baby compete at the Salon du Cheval, but you don’t want to incur the financial risk? There is no rule, he observes, that says you have to own the entire horse. He advocates partnerships, provided they are well-managed, such as those now seen

“I’d like to see people accept that, yes, the

horses have to be extraordinarily beautiful in terms of their eyes and ears and their shape of neck, but they also have to be

good horses. I don’t mean to say that the winning horses aren’t good now, but I

in Thoroughbred racing. “It doesn’t matter whether one owns two percent or 20 percent or more,” he says. “One is still an owner and entitled to all ownership benefits. “I think if somebody with knowledge can guide people and introduce the horse properly, they could really enjoy it,” he continues. “By ‘properly,’ I mean not as a financial investment, but an investment in a lifestyle, in something that’s fun, creative, and loaded with lots of perks—like the friends and business acquaintances they’ll meet, and the experiences of travel and seeing new things.” He sketches how it might work. “You could design partnerships through LLCs, where people could participate at a level comfortable to them, from two percent to maybe 20 or 30 percent (certainly no more than you can afford for the fun). Most partnerships have no more than 20 investors at varying levels of ownership. However, with the partnership concept, one might be an owner of a million dollar horse for only $25,000 (2.5 percent), and then training fees, maintenance and show costs are prorated among the members of the group.” This is not a plan for amateur competition, he clarifies; for the most part, it is a way for more people to enjoy the highest level show and race horses in the world, particularly on the international scene, with its fun and glamour. “The horse might go to Europe to compete, and Volume A PR44, IL No. 20 092 | 113


Gene LaCroix you’d fly into Aachen, say, and enjoy that, or menton or Paris—or Tulsa, or wherever it may be,” he says. north America would be viable, depending on the type of horse and its goals. “The concept of multiple ownership in a single horse greatly increases our chances of being competitive with the middle east,” he says. “i’ve seen it working in the Thoroughbred industry. The key is that the horse is really the quality represented. You can’t guarantee wins, but you can pretty much provide a great horse that, barring an accident or something like that, people can be proud of and enjoy saying, ‘i own that horse.’ in the past, too many partnerships have not been done right. new people have come in and gotten burned right off the bat. That’s why i say ‘introduced properly and guided properly.’”

“The key is that the horse is really the

quality represented. You can’t guarantee wins, but you can pretty much provide a great horse that, barring an accident or something like that, people can

be proud of and enjoy saying, ‘I own that horse.’ In the past, too many

partnerships have not been done right.”

Who could manage such partnerships? “it is something i’d like to get into, managing horses for new people,” he says. “i would like them to acquire horses that meet their desires, whether it’s a halter horse, an english horse, a western horse—it doesn’t matter. We’d find the best horses, trainers and handlers to meet their needs. And at some point, i’d like to expand that into introducing new people to Arabians.” Again, he observes that he is not trying to circumvent trainers; he believes there is a vital need for them. He sees a manager more as facilitating relationships for the benefit of all. The trainers, he says, will benefit from this and so will the breeders and owners. “The new people will have more enjoyment per dollar,” he predicts, “and it’s a good way of being able to raise enough money to buy the horses that can compete at the highest levels, anywhere in the world.” 114 | ArAbiAn A r A bi A nHorse Hor seTimes T i mes

How About An Olympics?

When LaCroix says that he is thinking out of the box, he is not kidding. He has one last idea to offer, and it is the highest-end of all. “my grandiose idea for re-popularizing Arabians is an Arabian olympics, or whatever you want to call it, for the upper level horses,” he says. “Any country recognized by WAHo could send its team of highly selected horses, riders and coaches. The site might alternate between europe, the middle east, north America, south America and Australia, but horses have to qualify to make their national teams.” How would it work? “each country would form its team, with the basic disciplines—halter, english, western, reining, dressage, racing, and endurance—all part of the team. All would be recognized events with a universally agreed standard of excellence, rules and judging procedure. The best horses and riders/handlers in each of these categories, whether there are two or three or four of them that make the cut in each division, go over as a country’s team to wherever the ‘olympics’ may be held in its year (we could hold it every two or three years, whatever works best). “What it does is bring each country together, competing against the other countries,” he says. “i think it could be pulled off by the Arabians because of their history as the father of all light horse breeds. They’re undeniably the most beautiful, and represented from all over the world. if you get representation bringing the world together, you get huge corporate sponsors, and could then be funded from outside of the Arabian industry.” Again addressing costs, he points out that if a horse qualifies but its owners can’t afford to send it to the olympics, it could be sold in whole or in part to an individual or a partnership for a substantial price. The idea, he admits, is not yet fully developed, but the potential benefit it represents makes it deserving of discussion. For one thing, such a competition would provide global standards of excellence simply because such criteria would have to be established. “And it would be major exposure for American horses meeting those standards,” he says. “reining is already popular worldwide, but some of the performance classes, like


Gene LaCroIx English and western, might have to be exhibition events in the beginning. But it’s a way of exposing those disciplines. “It just brings the whole Arabian world together,” he says. “It brings everyone together and it provides phenomenal exposure for all the disciplines of the Arabian. It’s never been done before. Could it become a huge thing? Yes.  “Think about it—if there were an Arabian Olympics, and America had a team, what it would do here in the

States for Arabian competition. What would be more important, the U.S. Nationals, Scottsdale or qualifying for the Olympics? Every breeder, trainer, owner, exhibitor would dream of making the U.S. team—and it’s not just the prestige of owning an Olympic horse; it affects the value of the horse too. All shows like those would get in sync with adopting the standards that would provide recognition and maybe become sources for Olympic qualification. Maybe the U.S. Nationals, revamped, could become the last round for making the U.S. team.”

So, What IS In the Future For Gene L aCroIx? His own future, he smiles, is a little less flamboyant. “I really enjoy our farm,” he says, “and playing with the racing some, and doing the rehab as our bread and butter. Recently, I’ve been doing more coaching and I really enjoy it. From his vantage now, after half a century in the breed, the late 1980s pale in his memory. What is more clear is his gratitude for the experiences the Arabian horse has offered him over the years and the times he has had. In fact, that difficult era helped him better understand his ties to the horses. “That was when I realized how much I love and appreciate them,” he says. “They are treasures, not merely tools. I’m continually challenged by my desire to communicate and understand them better, the basis of more effective training. I call it teaching, because I want them to learn, not be forced or intimidated. “I want to make a contribution to re-energizing the Arabian breed,” he adds, “even if it’s just in the form of a wild idea once in awhile. Who knows? One of those wild ideas may take hold.” n

The PETstock Golden Garland Line-Up.

The 2013 Arabian Gala Event

The Arabian Gala Event is a Class A Arabian horse show run by the Arabian Valley Horse Club (AVHC), a small group of people actively showing on their own. With knowledge and awareness, the committee created a fun and entertaining show while showcasing the horses at their very best. Held at the Queensland State Equestrian Centre in Australia on May 11th and 12th, the 2013 Arabian Gala Event proved to be successful. Additionally, more spectators across the globe were able to enjoy the show as it was live-streamed through iStream, a huge benefit to the show and viewers alike. The halter division, judged by Terry Holmes (USA), was held on Saturday with an Arabian Derivative section judged between each purebred halter section. With Australia having a large variety of Arabian derivatives, spectators can easily identify the differences.

A major win and highlight of the show was the winner of the Champion Senior Stallion class—Australian bred stallion Halimas Saayid, owned by Sheena Williams. The Senior Mare Championship also held a line-up of incredible mares, with the win going to Dell Jackson’s mare La Challerina. The show’s feature class, the PETstock Golden Garland, was held on Saturday evening. A very exciting saddle class, its competitors complete a 2-minute freestyle workout to music, and requires the workout to contain 6 compulsory moves. Each move is scored out of 10 points by the three judges, with the potential for earning extra points for difficulty and originality, manners and paces, quality, conformation, and presentation. The winner of the coveted “Golden Garland” was Paul Austin on the Arabian-Warmblood gelding Richvale Marlow. The Silver Garland went to Lee-Arnes’ purebred Arabian gelding Zara Farm


ArAbiAn GAlA EvEnt Warman, ridden by Alexandra Strange, and the Bronze Garland went to Alicia Warrender’s purebred mare Promise Me Brass, ridden by Kate Dertell of Future Farms. The performance classes, held on Sunday, and judged by Samantha Kennedy (South Australia) and youth judge Sheree Taylor (Victoria), again saw Paul Austin and Mark Lilley’s gelding, Richvale Marlow, win the Shiranna Garlands Saddle Horse of the Show. While the weather wasn’t especially kind for the 2013 Arabian Gala Event, the quality was as strong as ever. For a show that is quickly becoming one of Australia’s favorites, this event can only get bigger and better. n Champion Senior Gelding CHELLEASON EL LORENZO, owned by Laudan Arabians.

The 2013 Region 10 Championships

Thinking Globally, Acting Locally by Kara Larson

St. Paul, Minnesota is home to one of the biggest regional shows of the year—the Region 10 Championship Horse Show. Held from June 12-16, the regional show had some excellent competition as well as an increase in horse numbers by about 70, bringing the total number well over 500 horses, with the pre-show alone showing 200 entries. A show filled with a diverse and deep group of Arabian show horses, 3-year regional director, Laura Mickelson maintains that the show’s success starts with the people of Region 10. “It’s just a great group of people who are able to put aside their personal needs and look at what’s good for all of us. And I think that’s a little unusual, but our region has a reputation for getting along very well. I also think we’re very innovative and we’ve got some passionate young people on the board, pushing us to be a little more technologically inclined. It’s really nice to deal with smart, innovative, encouraging people who only want Region 10 to keep growing and evolving with the industry.” The benefits of a hardworking and steadfast board have become apparent in the success of the Region 10 Championships as it becomes a viable option for a highly competitive regional show. “The show has been growing over

the last few years, and the whole board has worked really hard to make it fun while keeping a good schedule and providing a driving energy. I think we’re just reaping the results of years of work to create a show that people around the country are talking about. I heard from several barns new to Region 10 that they are looking for competition and they found it here. Region 10 offers new horses to show against, which is fun.” Region 10 consists of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and a club from South Dakota and Canada, but this year’s show brought in horses from all over the country, including several new barns. “I tried to talk to everybody and thank them for coming. The new barns all said they had a good time and that they were going to come back next year. And many of them said they were going to bring more horses as well, which is always great to hear. I think it really emphasizes how enjoyable the show was this year and the quality of the competition—a top five really meant something.” Laura continues, “Beyond that, we focused on making this more of 18 • REGION 10 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


a family show with the youth lounge, progressive barn party, “Think Pink” breast cancer fundraiser (which raised over $8,000), and street dance. This gives the opportunity for kids and adults to get out of their barns and have fun together; providing things to do for the whole family. A lot of times they’re sitting around and are pretty bored with this whole thing, so something outside the show ring helps!” As for the changes the Region 10 board is hoping to enlist for next year, Laura places the greatest emphasis on the show schedule and pushing the Twin Cities as a destination city. “There’s really so much to do in the Twin Cities and I don’t know that people necessarily realize when they have some free time, all the fun restaurants, parks, attractions, and more that are available in the city. We’re also looking to adjust the schedule a bit. The show was kind of long, a bit of a marathon,

a leading region because “ We’re we can get outside of our own frame of reference and think larger. .”

so we’re going to consider what we can do to get longer breaks. We might add a day to the show. I think that’s really the only way we can buy time unless we cut the number of classes down. So, we’re looking at it, we don’t want it to be known as a marathon, we want it to be known as a fun show.” With changes for next year already in mind, Laura Mickelson hopes the Region 10 Championship Horse Show, expertly managed for many years by Nancy Miller, is on your show calendar for next year. Region 10 is in the game of putting on a great show, yet they stay true to their Midwestern mindset. “I really think that this whole area of the country is practical, and we constantly re-evaluate what we do. With that practicality, it’s about the willingness

to spend money to make something special, while being smart about it. The innovative and cooperative nature of the region as a whole has helped make Region 10 what it is today.” Laura concludes, “We’re a leading region because we can get outside of our own frame of reference and think larger.  I think we’re very good at one of my favorite phrases, which is think globally, act locally. We’re going to try to make the show as special as we can, and we’re hoping that we continue to grow and maintain it as one of the premier regional shows in the country.” Volume 44, No. 2 | REGION 10 •

Central Working Western Celebration Show

In its inaugural year, the North Central Working Western Celebration Show was held at the Simon Arena in Cannon Falls, Minn., from June 20-23. Developed and ran by event organizer and show manager, Sandy Woerle, the show included multiple breeds competing head-to-head in the fast paced events of working cow, reining, and cutting. The show awarded over $33,000 in prize money in these classes. In the Hesa Zee Reining Challenge, there were Quarter Horses, purebred Arabians, and HalfArabians competing for the $2,000 prize in the open division. Eleanor Hamilton also awarded customdesigned bridles with show bits made by Franco Silver to the champions of the eight divisions. A new show with big prizes and several breeds showing their prowess in a variety of classes, the North Central Working Western Celebration show holds promise in its future as a unique and forward-thinking event.

The 2013 Ohio Buckeye Show Celebrating 50 Years by KARA LARSON The Buckeye Sweepstakes Horse Show, held from May 2428, or Memorial Day Weekend, at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio, has a reputation as a high caliber Class-A horse show where a championship can mean a great deal. As the show director for over a decade, Cindy Clinton shares her thoughts on another successful Buckeye. “The Buckeye slogan is “where National Champions are made!” This is where the best of the best come to test the water in the performance divisions. You can usually make your decision here on whether or not your horse is a national contender.” The Buckeye may offer some of the highest levels of competition of any Class-A show today, yet, there is much more to the show. The famous Progressive Party gives the exhibitors and spectators a unique opportunity to socialize and enjoy food and drinks provided by various farms at the show. Getting out of their own barn and out into the hospitality of fellow horsemen, the Arabian horse community gets to interact on a different level than the one they experience inside the show ring. Clinton sees that events like this really set the Buckeye apart from

other shows. “My favorite part is seeing everyone having a good time and knowing that the majority of the people appreciate the work. It’s taken a long time to realize you cannot make everyone happy, and even though we were down approximately 60 horses this year, we focused on the positive. This year the schedule was wonderful—that is one benefit of the numbers being down, because everyone had more time to socialize. The footing was also exceptional this year; it took us a little while to get it right, but when we did, it was worth it.  The competition was tough as usual.  The Buckeye does not get a lot of junior riders normally because of school not being out, however, this year those classes were incredible.  I watched a JTR country class that was possibly one of the best classes of the show, if not the best.” For Clinton, this year’s show also served as an indication of the promising future of the Arabian show industry. “Some of us wonder where we will be in another ten years. Where are the trainers and the breeders going to come from? This year’s show proved that the young trainers are here and ready to step up and take the reins.  As soon as those front Memorial Balloon Release in honor of Marla Ruscitto.

AEPA PrEsidEnt PEtEr ConwAy How long have you been president of the AEPA? I have been involved with the AEPA since its inception. Joel Kiesner shared his vision of the concept at Scottsdale in 2006 and I was all in. I am not exactly sure when I became President, but the truth is that the organization has an outstanding Board that works as a team to make all the decisions.

Judges John Lambert, Todd Hickerson and Myron Krause with Raven Gropp, winner of Cloud Nine Youth High Point Award.

Progressive Dinner

row stalls became available, those young trainers were on the phone, eager to move up and fill the spots of those not there. They decorated, participated in parties, and made it known they are here and have the talent to carry on into the future. This year was the 50th anniversary of the Buckeye and it confirmed that we have the talented and dedicated individuals to carry on into the next 50.” As Cindy Clinton and all involved in the show move forward, they hope to uphold the Buckeye as a show willing to grow and evolve with the times, all the while keeping those loyal to the show looking forward to next year. “I hope the Buckeye is an example that our shows can be fun, exciting, and open to trying new things because if we don’t, we are going to disappear.  We have too many things to compete with nowadays.” In trying new things, the Buckeye is not afraid to be the first in line. “Lisa Blackstone’s Horse Show App is an example of trying new things. The exhibitors and people at home love it. We were also one of the first to try Arabian Horse Global’s live feed. It’s a

What is special about the AEPA? The AEPA is all about making it more fun and profitable to be involved with Arabian English Performance horses. Everything from developing an objective scoring system to funding large prize money classes is focused on that objective. We wrote a manifesto that defines what an English Performance horse should be, what is desirable and what is not, so that breeders and judges can all be on the same page and work toward a common goal of ever better judging and ever better breeding. The large prize money classes reward excellence in breeding and training. They also draw people’s attention and create excitement about owning and showing these incredible horses. What was the class at the Buckeye? The AEPA Buckeye Yearling In-Hand English Futurity is unique in our breed. The class judges yearlings on their potential to become English Performance horses using specific scored attributes. It is a chance for breeders to showcase their program and to see what other breeders are producing. I personally find it a fantastic opportunity to see what particular bloodlines are working well, etc. One would have to travel all over the country for a chance to see that many yearlings that were bred using English Performance lines. It is also educational to see those same horses perform a few years later under saddle. Why is the Buckeye a good show for this class? It is well attended and at a good time of the year. We can bring the yearling in and teach them to trot in-hand, show them at the end of May, and then turn them back out to pasture to grow up. All in all, it is a great experience for them. And this year, it was a great class of yearlings. I would have gladly taken any one of them home with me! What do you hope the AEPA does for the Arabian English horse? I hope it gets more people to participate in the English Performance division—really, that is the whole point. We want it to be fair, fun, and rewarding.

different world than it was twenty years ago. A lot of people just cannot make it to the show anymore; they are too busy. It’s amazing how many emails I receive from parents and grandparents thanking us for having the live feed. Change is hard, but we have to step up and try new things.”

THE ONE MILLION DOLLAR REINING FUTURITY And Dreams For The Arabian Horse And Its Future by Christy Egan

TA Mozart (Kordelas x Marieta) and John O’Hara. 190 | A r A bi A n Hor sE T i mEs


Ames Reining

TA Mozart, John O’Hara, Dick Ames and Kimberly Tillman.

I

t should not come as a surprise to anyone that at the heart of all of the hoopla surrounding the exciting, new Million Dollar Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Futurity sits longtime Arabian horse breeder, exhibitor and advocate, Dick Ames. Two of the most successful futurity programs in the Arabian horse business today, the Scottsdale Reining Futurity and the Minnesota Breeders Futurity, were started years ago by a miniscule group of people that included Dick Ames. The Minnesota Breeders Futurity is now over thirty years old and is the most successful program of its kind ever created. The Scottsdale Reining Futurity set new precedents when it was first implemented in 2005. Suddenly, the Arabian and Half-Arabian reining horse garnered attention like never before from the equine performance horse world. Working western horse trainers all over North America rushed to breed and train a few Arabians so they too, could compete for the large cash prizes being offered at the Scottsdale All-Arabian show in February.

Today, the big reining competition of the hour is all about a million dollars in prize money and a big, stretchy chestnut Arabian stallion named TA Mozart. Bred by Dick Reed and Toskhara Arabians LP, TA Mozart was foaled in late May, 2007, a product of pure Polish Arabian parentage and truly dynamic high performance bloodlines. His sire, Kordelas, a son of the great Monogramm out of a Palas daughter, is noted for siring top, winning reining horses and his dam, the Arbil daughter Marieta, is a granddaughter of the great import *El Paso, national champion stallion and a sire of incredibly athletic and talented Arabian horses. Her pedigree includes lines to *Bask’s full sister Bandola and the great performance sire Comet and the Witraz son Celebes. It was longtime Non-Pro competitor Kimberly Tillman who originally discovered TA Mozart at Toskhara Arabians while there looking at horses with her fiancée, trainer John O’Hara. Volume 44, No. 2 | 191


TA Mozart and John O’Hara, 2011 Scottsdale Champion Arabian Reining Futurity Classic.

“John and I went to look at a horse for a client at Dick Reed’s,” says Kimberly. “While John was busy, I walked down the barn aisle looking into stalls. There was a striking chestnut horse there that caught my eye, TA Mozart. I asked to see him lounged and he was everything you look for in a reining horse. I told John we needed to find a buyer for him, but John didn’t think much of that idea. I bought the horse when John wasn’t

looking and he was mad at me until he had a chance to work the horse for a while. Then he changed his mind.” John O’Hara brought TA Mozart out to show at the 2011 Scottsdale Show where the team won the Scottsdale Reining Classic. He followed that with a trip to the U.S. Nationals in October where he took Reserve National Champion honors in the 5 & Under Reining Futurity. Then … calamity; a freak accident in the home pasture, and Mozart lost a large slice of one front foot. “I was beside myself when I heard what had happened,” Kimberly admits soberly. “By the time I saw Mozart, he had a cast on his foot and he was restricted to stall rest for a number of weeks. Somehow, Mozart managed to maintain his great attitude throughout his ordeal. He would carefully lie down and get up with the cast on and simply, never faltered. We took meticulous care of him as did our farrier.”

By the time the cast came off, it was just a few weeks prior to the 2012 Scottsdale show. The foot had healed perfectly, a testament to the caregivers, the young stallion’s outstanding conformation and beautifully formed feet, and the horse’s incredible good nature and intelligence. John started working him very slowly and steadily, watching ever so carefully for any sign of soreness or problems. None appeared. John presented the horse

once again in the Scottsdale Classic Reining Futurity, asking only for what the horse was willing to give. It was enough to place him in the finals. With the last run, John asked Mozart the ultimate question, what was he willing and able to do? Mozart answered, giving John O’Hara the run of his life and winning the Scottsdale Arabian Reining Futurity for an unprecedented second year in a row! Not only did he win it, he put up the highest score (221) ever recorded for the event. “It’s his disposition,” says Tillman. “He knows exactly when it’s time to work and when it’s time to rest. He relaxes completely, trusts his people, hauls easily and sleeps soundly at the shows. He’s good-minded, quiet, willing and he has a huge heart.” For the balance of 2012, TA Mozart and John O’Hara competed successfully in show after show, culminating with U.S. National Champion honors at Tulsa in Arabian Reining Junior Horse and closing the season with an LTE of $53,589. 194 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

By this point everyone in the industry who owned, trained or followed reining horses knew, or had heard of TA Mozart, and no one was a bigger fan than avid reiner and Arabian breeder and horseman, Dick Ames. “Dick Ames started asking me about TA Mozart sometime in early 2012,” says Kimberly. “I had no interest in selling the horse, but Dick was very persistent. For me it really didn’t have anything to do with money. Dick said that the horse would be the lead sire for his reining program, that he would promote the horse extensively and help make him a truly great breeding sire. Dick was offering something I was not able to do … not at that level.” “Mozart is the best Arabian reining horse I’ve ever seen,” says Dick Ames. “He has the disposition for this event. He’s quiet and has a great temperament. Reining has become my passion over the past 20 years. It’s the best class in Arabian horse competition today. Unlike a lot of horse showing, reining is easy to understand, easy to explain to


Ames Reining

newcomers, and it’s a class where the judges are visibly and readily accountable. There are fewer politics and it’s a point per category event with subtraction for faults.” Once he had purchased the horse, Ames wasted no time in putting together dynamic promotion for TA Mozart. He came up with the Million Dollar Futurity and had the entire industry buzzing with curiosity and comment almost immediately. Although there have been numerous ads and announcements over the past few months, few details have been made available. It is clear that the futurity is currently being written, organized and modeled after the NRHA futurities. It is also clear that Ames is now hunting for the perfect location and venue to host his new competition and is seriously considering the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. The Western Stock Show is over a hundred years old and hosts some of the largest horse shows and equine competitions in the world. The 2006 100-Year Anniversary show hosted 18,000 horses. The show promotes and attracts a specifically western crowd of ranchers, cowboys and cowboy wannabes, and could be an ideal vehicle for re-introducing Arabian horses in general and working western Arabian horses in particular into mainstream America. It also has the potential to offer large, serious western-oriented sponsorship for such an event. Ames Construction has had an office in Denver since they built the Denver International Airport and they have a longtime connection with the Western Stock Show as well, through their competitive draft horse teams. The basics for the Million Dollar Futurity seem relatively simple. To begin, there are actually two futurities. The first is called the TA Mozart Futurity and it’s open to four and five-year-old purebred and Half-Arabian horses sired by TA Mozart. The second is the Ames Reining Futurity which has the same criteria but is open to all four and five-year-old purebred and Half-Arabian reining horses. The horses will most certainly be shown together, at least initially, with the TA Mozart offspring receiving additional prize monies based on where they place. The initial payout, designed to include prize money for both owners and trainers, is scheduled to be $50,000 per class with a five-year guarantee. The futurity is scheduled to start in 2016.

are based on the NRHA futurities which Ames and many other reining participants admire.

twice and for purebreds three times. He has good things to say about TA Mozart.

“The NRHA futurities are the most successful in the horse industry,” Dick notes. “They developed because the Quarter Horse industry had the numbers to support the many futurities and then the futurity money encouraged people to breed more horses which supported even more futurities. Most of the reason we are doing this is for the Arabian horse community. Many people in our industry have stopped breeding their horses and we see this as a way to encourage them to get interested again and get back in the game.”

“He’s good-minded, easy going, and he has lots of stop,” Brian notes. “He will step up for a pro and go easier with an amateur. He has a real ‘gritty’ look, turns around easy, enjoys his job and is real sound and together.”

Dick Ames personally has nearly thirty horses that are bred to be reining or working western horses. All but five of them are four or younger. Three chestnuts sired by TA Mozart, a colt and two fillies, were foaled this past spring. Many are in training with Dick’s reining horse advisor and trainer Brian Welman. A trainer for almost thirty years, first with Quarter Horses and now with Arabians, Brian has many different breed national championships to his credit and has won the Scottsdale Reining Futurity Classic for Half-Arabians 196 | A R A BI A N HoR SE T I MES

Welman is a big advocate for the new Million Dollar Futurity as well. “I bred a Quarter Horse to Mozart this year,” he admits. “I’m investing in the Futurity too. The trick is to get it going, market the horses and develop more futurities. More than one is needed. We can’t afford to just sit back and take. If we want this to work, we all have to pitch in and find sponsors and donate some of our own money, too. Everyone has to be invested in this!” Tyson Randle, also a trainer for Arabian and Quarter Horse working western horses, agrees. “I honestly don’t have a single purebred or Half-Arabian horse that is not a Futurity horse,” says Tyson. “Futurity classes create a ton of excitement and incentive. In the Quarter Horses, the futurity classes are strictly for three-year-olds. It’s a difficult task to have a new one ready to go every year.


Ames Reining

Tom Redmond, Dick Ames and Joe Betten. ARHA Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Futurity Founders.

There are 15 to 20 futurities in the NRHA all over the country annually and I do two or three. They’ve done a great job and those futurities keep the stud fees higher and the breeding numbers up. The biggest issue with any futurity is the horse power. There’s not a lot of stock to choose from and it’s hard to find the right horse. Arabian breeders need more futurities and more horses.” Long-time Arabian reining advocate, Joe Betten, thinks TA Mozart could be a tip of the iceberg regarding the solution to the breeding problem. “I believe the Arabian breed is ready for an outstanding reining stallion and based on TA Mozart’s show record, ability, quality disposition and natural talent, he could be the one to make it happen,” says Joe. “It takes teamwork and passion for a horse or a program to reach its potential. Dick Ames could be that kind of teammate for TA Mozart. Dick had a vision. He wanted to become the number one breeder of

Arabian and Half-Arabian reiners … and he is! I know, because I own a few and they are great!” TA Mozart’s barn name is “Chili,” a reference, no doubt, to his striking chestnut color and hot, flashy white stockings and markings. Though his demeanor is certainly calm and controlled, he has the look of a “wild card” about him and that aura seems to fit with Dick Ames’ rugged, cowboy approach to life as well. Though he is very lucid and energetic, Dick Ames is no longer a young man. The logical year when the Million Dollar Futurity will begin is 2016 and that’s a few years away. Will he compete in the futurity when the time comes? “Probably not,” he answers, but there is a twinkle in his eye and he immediately references his two partners from the Scottsdale Reining Futurity. “If Joe Betten and Tom Redmond ride, I will,” he says firmly. I look in his eyes … and I believe him. ■ Volume 44, No. 2 | 197

Working Western— Showcasing The Stamina, Strength, And Temperament Of The Arabian Horse Ask someone who knows little about the Arabian horse of its abilities as a working western horse, and you will

probably get a shoulder shrug or even a chuckle from a skeptic. However, for those who are involved with the

reining, working cow, and trail horses, it is apparent just how much the breed has advanced in this athletic and fast-paced division. As breeders, trainers, and

owners gain more knowledge with the Arabian Working Western horse and its capabilities,

our breed expands its versatility a bit further, turning skeptics to believers and non-horse people into Arabian lovers.

Volume 44, No. 2 | 201


Eleanor Hamilton ELEANOR’S ARABIAN FARM RogeRs, Minn. What are the ideal characteristics of a working western horse? Well, I think disposition is as important as anything. Their attitude and personality should be nice, quiet, easygoing, and just ho hum. And obviously you want them to have the conformation of a western horse. How far has the Arabian come in the working western division in the past 20 years or since you’ve been involved?  I think the people—and probably not just with western horses, but in general—have learned that you need to develop a specific program for the horse you want. You just can’t pick something out of the crowd and say, “Okay we’re going to make a western pleasure horse out of this one.” And in the process of developing a program, one learns which bloodlines work and don’t work, and so on. What does the Arabian have to offer that other breeds lack when it comes to the working western division? In their conformation alone, Arabians have such a pretty head and it accentuates the rest of the body. Whether you’re doing reining or pleasure, you want the motion, but we Arabian people, we want the pretty that goes with it.  The Arabian is not necessarily known for its abilities as a cow, trail, or even reining horse—what can you say about their growth and capability in the division? I think as the breeding program has developed further, we got really good studs. We’re making really strong working horses, and as the programs evolve, we’ll see better and better horses—horses that are much more athletic, and are, by this time, built and designed to do the job, easily handling rollbacks and other maneuvers with more strength. How is the relationship between a working western horse and rider different from that of other disciplines? I think it’s the same connection.  You know how the horse is supposed to feel, whether you’re doing a pleasure class or a working class—you know exactly the feel that you expect for whatever maneuver you’re going to be doing.  And you’re going to get the same feel when you’re loping in a pleasure class or if you’re doing a rundown.

What is the most important aspect of staying current and smart in the working western world? Going to shows, whether you’re just going to observe or whether you’re going to be showing. And also, especially for amateurs, going to some of the clinics that are being put on. Going to a western pleasure or working horse class clinic is incredibly helpful, even just to study the western horse and different training styles. They can offer different wording, and maybe the demonstration is a little bit different than what you’re used to and it just clicks—you never know what you might learn. Have you worked with other breeds in the working western division? If yes, how would you compare such breeds to Arabians? I’ve really only showed purebreds and HalfArabians. I showed a Quarter Horse stud a couple of times, but that’s been a number of years ago. But in the differences between purebred Arabians and Half-Arabians, I notice the biggest difference in the temperament.  The Half-Arabians, at least in our barn, are a little more quiet. I have a purebred and a Half-Arabian, and I do about as much winning with one as I do the other, but the Half-Arabian is definitely


easier to show. She’s not quite as looky, but as far as stops, I probably get better stops with the purebred.  So it’s an interesting mixture! The purebred is definitely a little bit quicker.  You’ve got to be thinking one step ahead of her.

Nancy Howard Fayetteville, aRk. What are the ideal characteristics of a working western horse? I think what working western trainers and riders look for are: low hocks, short back, strong hindquarters and good shoulders. A horse that likes to play so, when they see the cow, they realize it is “play time.” The horse has to be able to anticipate on what the cow is thinking so they are ready to make the next move. Mainly they have to enjoy what they are doing! How far has the Arabian come in the working western division in the past 20 years or since you’ve been involved? The last 20 years have seen many additions to the discipline. These include the addition of the non-pro classes, the futurity classes for the junior horses with added money, the addition of the reined cow classes where the horse is required to do a reining pattern and work a cow, and also JTR classes at Youth Nationals. This year, Team Sorting is a new addition and will be at the U.S. Nationals for the first time. Team Sorting has become a very popular class with other breeds and it appears it is also going to be big with our breed.

cows and do reining as she proved in 1961 when she won the Reined Cow class at the Cow Palace on her horse Ronteza. How is the relationship between a working western horse and rider different from that of other disciplines? There is not any difference between working western and other disciplines. With any class, the horse and the rider have to become as one. They think alike, they understand what the other is thinking, and they have the upmost respect for each other. As my trainer, Eddie Ralston, once said, a horse and rider are like a dance couple. They begin to learn the dance, practice the dance, and once they get to the prom and are dressed in their prom attire, they try to win the crystal ball. What is the most important aspect of staying current and smart in the working western world? Part of it is keeping up with all of the additions to the discipline, the rule changes, and trying to help educate those outside of the industry about the abilities of the Arabian horse. Have you worked with other breeds in the working western division? If yes, how would you compare such breeds to Arabians? The Arabians have suppleness, softness, and are easy to get off the pressure. The Quarter Horse has the strength and muscle. Because of these differences, the Half-Arabian mix of Arabian and Quarter Horse in the working western division has become very popular and the classes are growing.

What does the Arabian have to offer that other breeds lack when it comes to the working western division? Endurance! They can go longer than other breeds, especially if their classes are scheduled close together—they have the stamina. The Arabian is not necessarily known for its abilities as a cow, trail, or even reining horse—what can you say about their growth and capability in the division? This is changing as the horse industry is getting educated about the Arabian horse. They are proving they do have the ability and the desire, and they do it very well. With the addition of new classes that are drawing more people to the working western classes, and participating in stock horse shows, more horses and riders are getting involved because the word is getting out.

LaRae Fletcher-Powell SILVER ASPEN RANCH aubuRn, Wash. What are the ideal characteristics of a working western horse? In general, quiet-minded, lower headed, shorter cannon bones, shorter coupled and pleasant to look at. How far has the Arabian come in the working western division in the past 20 years or since you’ve been involved? In the past, reiners would make run downs like they were shot out of a cannon and then stop stiff legged with their heads up. Presently, we see the finesse in our stops with a high degree of difficulty.  Overall, the reining division has made great progress with regard to style and form when competing. The inclusion of the trail scoring system has begun the process to creating the same growth and high degree of difficulty that has transpired in the reining division. The Arabian is not necessarily known for its abilities as a cow, trail, or even reining horse—what can you say about their growth and capability in the division? We compete at several NRHA shows during the year and we take our Arabians to all of them. Many of our clients have won against the Quarter Horses. This is proof that our Arabians are capable of competing against other breeds.

on outside and in the other breeds. Also not being afraid of asking questions or in the case of our national shows, duplicating what other breeds have found to be successful. We need to continue to be open-minded and not afraid of making changes if we want to grow our breed. Have you worked with other breeds in the working western division? If yes, how would you compare such breeds to Arabians? We show both Arabians and Quarter Horses in working western events. Quarter Horses are being bred for specific disciplines like reining. Arabians aren’t generally bred for specific divisions. I think we are beginning to look in that direction so that we can see an increase with purebred reining horses.

Laurel Reeves MilltoWn, Wisc. What are the ideal characteristics of a working western horse? A good mind, which includes personality and attitude, is most important. Athletic ability and sound conformation are also important; however, a good minded, willing horse can overcome many conformation faults.

What does the Arabian have to offer that other breeds lack when it comes to the working western division? The Arabian in general is quicker at learning something, which can be a positive or negative depending on how it is being trained. How is the relationship between a working western horse and rider different from that of other disciplines? In working western, the horse and rider are competing by themselves in a scored event. Most of our clients like the fact that they are being scored with regard to a system that is put in place to be fair to all exhibitors. The down side is that there is no room for error as all eyes are on you the entire time. In the rail events, the rider has opportunity at times to make corrections without being seen. What is the most important aspect of staying current and smart in the working western world? Knowing what goes LaRae Fletcher-Powell

How far has the Arabian come in the working western division in the past 20 years or since you’ve been involved? The biggest improvements have come with changes in training. Thanks in part to the support of several individuals who were willing and able to provide incentives, trainers who specialize in reining have been attracted to Arabians. The bloodlines of successful working western Arabians have remained relatively consistent over the decades. The combination of modern training techniques and proven bloodlines is creating a stronger competitive environment. What does the Arabian have to offer that other breeds lack when it comes to the working western division? In addition to being athletic, intelligent and beautiful, Arabians are versatile. Individual horses are capable of competing in multiple aspects of the working western division. These same qualities may also be found in other breeds; however,  Arabians have long been my personal preference no matter which discipline. The Arabian is not necessarily known for its abilities as a cow, trail, or even reining horse—what can you say about their growth and capability in the division? Arabians in the United States historically have been used as ranch horses and have competed successfully for many decades in open, all-breed working western competitions. The growth of this division within the breed may be attributed in part to a desire for a change from ring classes, or perhaps for individually judged competitions, or just maybe for action packed events. How is the relationship between a working western horse and rider different from that of other disciplines? I’ve been riding for fifty years and have tried almost all of the disciplines. A couple years ago I decided to show my reiner. For me, the biggest difference is the high degree of trust and confidence that I need to develop in order to maintain form and self-carriage while doing many different maneuvers, then adding speed. It’s a lot of fun and a challenge! What is the most important aspect of staying current and smart in the working western world? One important aspect is to get out and about, that is to attend open, discipline specific, rather than breed shows. This helps to

Laurel Reeves

build understanding of the true dimensions of the sport. In addition, when we show our horses outside of breed shows, we build interest in Arabians and expand the market. Over the past couple years I’ve shown in the North Central Reining Horse Association circuit and at the North Central Working Western Celebration, and have found a welcoming, encouraging and interested atmosphere. I hope to see more Arabians at these events soon. Have you worked with other breeds in the working western division? If yes, how would you compare such breeds to Arabians? My first horse was a stock type pinto of unknown pedigree. One day while bringing home the dairy herd with my trusty horse, a cow cut out, my horse cut after her, but I kept going. My horse stopped and looked down at me as if saying ‘Now you did it, the cow got away.’ That’s my only working western experience to date with another breed of horse. When I try cutting with an Arabian, I hope to stay on.

Kimblerly Tillman JOHN O’HARA PERFORMANCE HORSES WhitesboRo, tex. What are the ideal characteristics of a working western horse? I want them to possess style that will grab the judge’s attention as soon as that horse sets foot into the arena. The horse has to have a willing mind. What I mean by that is they have to be happy doing their job. I stay away from the horses that pin their ears in a stall or when riding them. It just isn’t a pretty picture. How far has the Arabian come in the working western division in the past 20 years or since you’ve been involved? I have had reining horses with John O’Hara for over 10 years and I can’t believe how much the style of riding and horses have changed. Everyone is breeding and training bigger, stronger and more athletic horses.  The quality of riding and horses just gets better every year along with the competition, and that is what makes our division so exciting. The Arabian is not necessarily known for its abilities as a cow, trail, or even reining horse—what can you say about their growth and capability in the division? I hear this statement less and less and it lets me know that our breeders, trainers, and amateur riders are doing a great job representing the reining horses, working cow horses, etc.  If I do have someone question the ability of the Arabian reiner, I just pull up YouTube™ on my phone and show them the videos of TA Mozart with a big smile on my face.  How is the relationship between a working western horse and rider different from that of other disciplines? I have had the pleasure of being involved with many different disciplines in our Arabian industry such as, halter, English pleasure, and hunter pleasure, and it was important to me that I had a good working relationship with my horse, trainer, and even the other clients in my trainer’s barn.  This is a hobby to most of us amateurs and hobbies are meant to be fun in my book. Everyday work is stressful enough, and at the end of the day, going to the barn to ride my horse and visit with friends is so healthy for me.

Kimblerly Tillman

What is the most important aspect of staying current and smart in the working western world? I love to research bloodlines and see if there is a new cross that is working well, look at reining prospect videos, and read trainer and Non-Pro articles. There is so much to learn from others’ experiences and I encourage folks not to be afraid to ask someone for help or even advice.  Have you worked with other breeds in the working western division? If yes, how would you compare such breeds to Arabians? I have some great Quarter Horses and Arabians that John O’Hara trains and shows in the open divisions and I show them in the Non-Pro divisions.  I really enjoy them because I can get an adrenaline rush riding both.  I am very selective when breeding or even buying a prospect; I want to make sure I am a responsible breeder/owner and focus on producing a great horse, Arabian or Quarter Horse.  It is important to me that the horse goes on to be productive for the owner and our industry no matter what breed it is— because a horse is a horse, of course.


Nan and Dick Walden RANCHO SOÑADO aMado, aRiz. What are the ideal characteristics of a working western horse? A working western horse should be brave, willing, athletic and smart. The cow horses, cutters, and reiners tend to be closer to the ground, lower hocked, and more close coupled than Arabians that excel as hunters or sport horses, but sometimes they surprise you. Some large horses with good conformation are very agile in trail obstacle class. Our trainer, Courtney Spicer, always says, “If you have the right equipment (conformation) the job is easier.”  But she also says, “Patient, kind, training geared to the learning capacity of the horse is  the key. Like kids, horses learn in different ways at different paces.” What does the Arabian have to offer that other breeds lack when it comes to the working western division? In our Southwestern desert, and in rough cattle country in Texas, Colorado, Nevada and Utah, many ranchers have long known that Arabians excel in ranch work. In hot weather, rough,  rocky terrain, or in other challenging conditions, the same qualities that make them great endurance horses make them great ranch horses. We ride out all our show horses on our working cattle ranch. Even our show hack horse knows how to push cattle and ground tie. Certain Arabian lines like Desperado V or Zee horses are “cowier” than others.

world.” Probably because they are high energy and intelligent critters—Arabians enjoy having a job to do. The best ones are willing partners and therefore very fun to ride for open and amateur rider alike. The Arabian is not necessarily known for its abilities as a cow, trail, or even reining horse—what can you say about their growth and capability in the division? It is our responsibility as breeders, trainers, and riders to let other breed enthusiasts know how great Arabians are at working western. For example, we have heard that there is still some skepticism about Arabians as 4-H horses. We need to get some of our best horses to young riders to show in all-breed venues. Also, for families who are on budgets, the Arabian is so versatile that parents and kids can show the same horse in several different classes at the same show, especially if they are showing at the local or regional levels. This should be a great selling point. I think we need to place more articles and ads in all breed magazines and in shows. The columns and articles written by Arabian trainers and owners in all-breed publications and the features on RFD-

Amateurs are beginning to figure out that if they have a well trained working western horse, they have a fine riding out horse as well that can open gates, cross water, and cover ground. These horses also tend to be more kid-safe and better behaved in the show ring because they have been out in the “real Nan and Dick Walden

TV and other Equestrian Channels help tell our story. The AHA literature and videos are excellent tools. We should get them out to our local shows, fairs and feed/tack stores and on our websites and Facebook© pages. We do trail and performance demonstrations using our local AHA members at our annual Pecan Harvest Festival south of Tucson that attracts around 15,000 people, including a lot of families, to our farm. Many of these folks have never seen an Arabian horse, except in the movies. They are amazed at how gentle and social they are in person. A number of Open Breed trainers believe that the most “fun” horse to ride as a cutter or reiner is a Half Arabian/ Quarter Horse cross, because they are so quick and cowy. Europeans love the American western traditions and riding appointments as evinced by the popularity of reining in the World Equestrian Games. The addition of adult western horsemanship, cowboy dressage, and non-pro reined cow horse to the Arabian shows both help to showcase and to develop the interest in working western. This is why, for years, American clinicians like Tommy Garland, Lou Roper, and Monty Roberts have been invited to Europe for shows and clinics. As another example, at Scottsdale we had visitors from Denmark and France seek us out, as small breeders because we excel in working western. How is the relationship between a working western horse and rider different from that of other disciplines? Ideally, trust and communication are part of any rider/ horse combination, but in working western it is integral. Particularly in working cow horse and cutting, the addition of a yearling steer of 700-800 lbs. introduces a wild card that adds risk as well as challenge. Running a steer down the line at a full gallop, and turning it are not for the faint of heart, be it horse or rider. This class is not for the occasional or weekend rider.  However, the recent introduction of the non-pro reined cow horse, where the steer work is limited to boxing makes it available to more amateurs at various skill levels. Generations of breeding for good minds and temperament also pay off. On a working ranch, that trust between horse and rider is equally integral. What is the most important aspect of staying current and smart in the working western world? You must take care of

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

your horses. To do working western requires a lot of physical and mental effort from your horses. They must be loved, rested, turned out, and given excellent nutrition and farrier care. It is also important for us as trainers and riders to attend clinics held by others, to get some outside eyes on our riders and horses. Have you worked with other breeds in the working western division? If yes, how would you compare such breeds to Arabians? Dick grew up on a working cattle ranch and has been riding since he was 3, always Quarter Horses. Now he rides Arabians and Half-Arabians exclusively, including for all the ranch work. He still respects a good Quarter Horse, but the intelligence, affectionate nature, stamina, sure footedness, try, and beauty of the Arabian have won him over. The goal of Rancho Sonado is to breed, train, and show typey, athletic, and great minded Arabians and HalfArabians that bring joy to their owners. Another important goal is to promote natural horsemanship and eliminate cruel or harsh training methods from our breed so our wonderful Arabians can reach their full potential.

Brian Welman BRIAN WELMAN TRAINING CENTER hastings, Minn. What are the ideal characteristics of a working western horse? For the reining division, I want them to be good minded, but then I want them to be shorter backed and have a bigger hip. Honestly though, I’d rather have a better mind than anything. That will really get more done than anything. If they’ll let you train them and let you show them, that’s worth far more than a lot of other things.  How far has the Arabian come in the working western division in the past 20 years or since you’ve been involved? I’ve only been doing this since they started the maturity in Scottsdale, and it’s changed drastically. I showed a couple Arabians back in the 80s, and it’s changed a great deal since then, but it’s even changed since eight years ago or so since the maturity in Scottsdale. I think the Half-Arabians have made some great changes especially. How is the relationship between a working western horse and rider different from that of other disciplines? I think


you’re at a higher, more intense level with a working western horse when you’re doing things more rapidly, than a western pleasure horse because of the spinning, and the running and stopping, and rolling back; circling at higher speeds and changing leads and coming back. Ideally, if you can do little or no contact or with the least amount of resistance, you have to really be in tune with them to get that done. The Arabian is not necessarily known for its abilities as a cow, trail, or even reining horse—what can you say about their growth and capability in the division? I think there were some really nice horses even when I started doing the reining back in the 80s. So today, there are even more nice Arabian horses out there, but I still don’t think reining is as big as halter and other disciplines. So, for this reason, I don’t think it is as specialized in the breeding. I think it’s starting to get more specialized; you’re starting to see some of the offspring of the really good ones now. For us, we’ve bred some of the mares that we’ve won Scottsdale with and those offspring have gone on and won Scottsdale themselves. Those are the kind of things you have to do to keep making your product better. There are some really nice horses out there and they’ve got a ways to go to be competitive, the purebreds more so than the Half-Arabians. There are Half-Arabians that could be competitive at NRHA shows, and they’re getting to be better and better all the time. Purebreds need to be a little stronger and better-minded and do the maneuvers the best, and I think we’re headed in the right direction. It just takes time to keep producing the product. What is the most important aspect of staying current and smart in the working western world? For working western, you want to breed what’s winning and what’s working, so the ones that are better minded and producing well. Basically, if it’s not working, don’t breed it. Have you worked with other breeds in the working western division? If yes, how would you compare such breeds to Arabians? I’ve worked with many different breeds. Whether it’s an Appaloosa, a Paint, a Quarter Horse, or an Arabian, I find that you’ve got to train them as individuals. You find

Brian Welman

where they’re going to work, and you find out how much they can take, and you train them to their ability. If they can only do it to a certain level, say a horse can only be a 71, there’s no sense trying to make them a 74. However, I have also found that you’ve got to take a little different approach with the purebreds. They tend to be a little bit hotter and they’re a little bit more—I wouldn’t necessarily say frail, but they’re just a little lighter built, so you have to take a little different approach. We need to start them earlier and get them broke to ride around. They don’t necessarily have to be running and stopping, but they need to get quieter, be guided around and just let you ride them to get gentle, so we’re not trying to cram everything on them all at once. With Quarter Horses, we have two years on them to get them ready for futurities and I think Arabians should have the same opportunity. Pushing them too much, too fast, will fry one faster than anything. If they can be started when they’re two, if they’re stout and mature enough, then I prefer we put somebody on them. Just get on them and ride them around, get them broke and prepared to take the training.

Viewpoints From The Industry In 2010, the National Park Service was having a problem with erosion of the Washington Monument. The rate of erosion had been increasing at an alarming rate. A study was done and it was determined that the harsh chemicals used to clean off the pigeon droppings were the culprit. Now, let’s sit back a moment and think how to solve this problem. I see several options: 1. Make rules against using harsh chemicals on National Monuments 2. Post signs prohibiting the feeding and attracting of pigeons, with harsh penalties for offenders. 3. Find out why pigeons like the Washington Monument so much. Turns out those Park Rangers are a smart bunch, and they figured out that spiders, gnats, and lights were the culprits. Pigeons like spiders, spiders like gnats, and gnats are attracted to lights at dusk. The Park Service refrained from turning on the lights that pointed at the Monument until after dusk. Problem solved! I think our industry can learn a lot from this simple root cause analysis. It seems every year we get more and more rules, or change the ones we have in a never-ending quest to fix our problems. If we never fix the need for these rules, is the problem ever solved? This year, USEF has a new group of proposed rules aimed at reducing stress on our horses. These rules concern overmedicating, medicating to affect behavior, and over-working. Just this year, we lost the ability to use two NSAIDS at once on our show horses. I have never used two NSAIDS at once at home, but I certainly have at shows. Why? More lunging, more work, and poor footing. There is not a lot we can do about the footing, but why all the work? It all boils down to our judging specifications. When superior performance in a

class is not rewarded because of a small mistake, or a few jigged walk steps, it creates the need for PERFECT rides. The famous Harry Gray quote reads, “No one ever achieved greatness by playing it safe.” Yet we continually ask our Arabian horses to do both! Several years ago I had a client showing in the last class of the show, a Half-Arabian country class. Paula and Saint put forth a superior performance, right up to the last canter when they picked up the wrong lead for a few strides. After the class, which they won, there was a group of irate exhibitors questioning the judge about ‘the wrong lead that won.” The judge very calmly replied, “For 95% of that class, she beat you, for 5% of that class you beat her. 95% wins.” Compare our sport, where excellence is the goal, not the fastest time, or the greatest distance jumped, to Figure Skating or High Diving. In these sports the level of difficulty is rewarded. Good judges recognize this. How boring would Figure Skating be if ‘to play it safe’, all a skater performed was figure eights? Of course, mistakes should have some consequence, but level of difficulty needs to offset the scale and EARN a horse points. And of course, attitude is everything! A horse that is willing and happy to do its job is everyone’s goal. How much happier would our horses be if we didn’t have to work them so hard to be perfect? This past December I had the pleasure of attending the Arabian Judges School. It was an educational and rewarding experience. One of the things that the educators stressed to us was this idea of rewarding excellence, and not running a command class. I don’ think the message is getting out there fast enough. The wellbeing of our horses depends on this. That, combined with our industry being thrust into public scrutiny, demands that we fix this problem. Our horses deserve better. n

TRENDS Owning The Show Ring by KARA LARSON

Volume 44, No. 2 | 227


W

hether you’re in the show ring or in the real world, fashion trends are constantly evolving, leaving the scene as quickly as they entered, and interpreted differently based on personal taste, style, and situation. In the Arabian show ring, the wide array of classes not only allow for all kinds of people and abilities to join in on the fun of showing, but it also allows for a variety of interpretations of the rules on apparel in the USEF Rulebook for each class in the Arabian division.

beige or brown jacket with matching jodhpurs. Day coat with jodhpurs also permitted. Boots and derby, soft hat or protective headgear required. Protective headgear may be worn without penalty. Contrasting hats, vests and/or ties are acceptable. Richard Wright, a national judge and longtime trainer, offers an interesting point of view about what your show ring outfit might “say” about you as a rider and showman. “I do think that adding a bunch of rhinestones to an outfit can make you look desperate. From a judge’s perspective, garish attire either speaks of insecurity or a lack of confidence in the judge’s ability to see you. And really, neither one is really the impression you want to give. All showing involves unspoken communication.”

Beginning in the rulebook itself, this article references exactly what is said about each division’s rules on appointments in the show ring—specifically show attire. Knowing the rules and regulations and where penalties are warranted should In expanding on this “unspoken communication,” Richard be a vital part of showing, considering how much time, compares showing to a job interview. “You’re applying for the energy, money, and thought goes into choosing outfits, job of first place rider. Your demeanor and your turn out are being properly turned out, and truly dressing the part of a ways to communicate quality and competence to the judge.

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress;

DRESS IMPECCABLY

and they remember the woman.”- Coco Chanel showman. However, it seldom is. Here to give insight into You want someone to think you’re competent, not flashy, not one of the most important aspects of showing are some overzealous, not cheap. For a job interview, you would wear of the leading trainers, judges, amateurs, and vendors in something fairly conservative and businesslike that gave the Arabian show industry. With their help and advice, the interviewer the impression that you were absolutely you’ll know exactly how to leave a strong impression on capable, but not somebody who was a grandstander. The the judges, while gaining the comfort, know-how, and same principles apply to the show ring because of the confidence every exhibitor should have in the show ring. impression you’re trying to communicate to the judge.” ENGLISH/COUNTRY PLEASURE According to Article 120 in the English pleasure section, “Informal saddle seat attire is required; no hunt attire. Suggested are conservative colors such as black, blue, grey,

Another important consideration is whether you’re dressing for country pleasure, English pleasure, or park. “Based on the criteria for the class you will be showing in, you should choose the type of apparel that will further the overall impression appropriate for that division. If it’s a country pleasure class, you’re trying to look more as one unit and create an impression of quiet symmetry. While in a park class, you could go for a stronger and bolder look.” Yet, for Richard, the English division is just not the place for rhinestones. “I understand that everyone wants to be unique, but to me, you can be unique without going over the top. I think it’s such a distraction from a beautiful horse.  But, not everyone feels that way and I have never, regardless of what I felt about the clothing, penalized someone in their placing because of it.”


Volume 44, No. 2 | 229


For his unique position in center ring, Richard thinks of his role and presentation in a similar way to the horses and riders he is judging. “As a judge, I think about the same things a rider should. I’m trying to show that I take it seriously and respect the exhibitors’ efforts without ever having to say anything. But ultimately, I want my work to speak for itself.  And really, that’s the way the competitors should consider their role. They should let their work speak for itself, emphasizing it with a suit of perfect fit and color.”” HUNTER PLEASURE / SHOW HACK According to Article 128 in the hunter pleasure section, “Informal attire is required. It includes a coat of conservative color (black, blue, gray, green, or brown, and conservative shades thereof ) made of materials that are suitable for hunting. Discrete patterns such as tweeds, houndstooth, jacquard, pin-stripes or subtle plaids are allowed. Coats must be darker than the breeches or jodpurs. Brocades, raised patterns, glossy/metallic/shiny fabrics or materials are not suitable for hunting. Ornamentation other than a stock or lapel pin, tie clip or tack, or monogram are not allowed on any item of attire. Gloves are optional, but if worn, must be of conservative color. Boots and conservatively colored hunting cap, derby, or protective headgear are mandatory. Protective headgear may be worn without penalty. Nonconforming exhibitors must be severely penalized.”

and more of a workman’s look, because originally, it was worn on the hunter field.” And in conjunction with hunter pleasure’s utilitarian and athletic beginnings, the principal style remains traditional. “The trend has become more understated, classic, and traditional than the loud, shiny, textured jackets of other disciplines. The rules call for very minimal ornamentation, so, nothing too blingy should be worn on your tie, on your jacket, or in your bun. If the girls are going to wear earrings, they should certainly be conservative.” Although show hack is less strict about its conservatism, Article 132 states that, “acceptable hack attire is required. It consists of conservatively colored coat, breeches and boots. Formal attire consisting of white breeches, top hat and tails may be worn.” Similar in components, the attire of hunt and show hack is classic, straightforward, and clean.

For John, one of the most important elements of hunter pleasure and show hack would be the boots. A good pair of boots is not exactly an inexpensive purchase, but John urges that you consider the mileage of a quality pair. “In addition to well-fitted clothing, people are starting to understand the importance of a good fitting riding boot. There is such an array of styles, and although they are a major purchase, good riding boots, if properly taken care of, are an investment. From this description, it would appear that the key word As long as you keep them in a boot bag with boot trees on to hunter pleasure is conservative. National judge the inside, and keep them clean and polished for the show and trainer, John ring, you won’t regret the purchase.” John continues with a Rannenberg, agrees new option of boot—the semi-custom boot. “Some of the that this conservative, advantages of a semi-custom boot are the look, the fit, and classic look is what the comfort. Many companies are coming out with a boot sets hunter pleasure that has a hidden zipper in the back, which allows you to apart from the other slip in and out easily instead of fighting and pulling them. disciplines. “With For example, Ariat now has an attractive semi-custom boot the hunt clothes, I with a very nice shape that follows the contour of the leg, think there was which is great.” As for the fit of these semi-custom boots, a period where it John explains where they should sit on your leg. They got too showy and should fit a little tall right away—reaching up to the back flashy, and hunt is of the knee—because as you break them in, the leather probably the most bends at the ankle and gets supple, relaxing downward. And conservative class a short pair of boots just doesn’t have quite the finished that we offer. It’s look—hunter is all about being crisp and tight and clean.” very classic and really hasn’t changed As a judge, John notices the overall picture in the first in centuries— impression a horse and rider team conveys, placing weight an understated on its importance. “When I see a horse and rider come

in that is well turned out—the horse is in proper frame, has a pleasant look on its face, has clean and properly fitting tack, and I can see that someone took the time to condition, groom, and braid the horse, and then I see that rider’s clothes fit well and the boots are clean and polished, it makes a statement. I am big on first impressions.” A big part of this first impression has to do with how a rider feels in their show clothes. Confidence stems from being comfortable, so it only makes sense that show outfits inspire those feelings. “I think putting on clothes that are welltailored, attractive, clean, and feel good is very important to confidence. You also need to make sure that you’re able to move and breathe without the fabric pulling and puckering; when you feel restricted and uncomfortable in your clothes, you all of a sudden feel different than you did from all the hours you spent at home preparing in your practice clothes. That should be a clue to the rider to look at their outfit—no matter what discipline. Because if you feel restricted, you look restricted.” In closing, John shares that, in the end, it’s about fitting horse and rider. “I think you have to look at the horse as an individual and you also have to look at the rider’s physique and body type—the look that you’re trying to portray.” WESTERN PLEASURE According to Article 196 in the western pleasure section, “Riders shall wear a western hat, long-sleeved shirt with any type collar, trousers or pants (one piece long sleeved equitation suit is acceptable provided it includes a collar). Chaps, shotgun chaps, or chinks, and boots required. A vest, jacket, coat, and/or sweater may also be worn. Protective headgear may be worn without penalty.”

light colored hats because it makes them look taller. If you’re tall, do not have your chaps extend below your heel. However, for me, I have some extended chaps for my larger horses, because I’m 5’4” and can look too little on a huge horse.” In the show ring, the judge’s perspective is one that must always be considered. Their opinion can change everything, so where their eye subconsciously stops on your tack and outfit can alter their perception of the overall picture. “When a horse enters the arena, you see the whole front end. As the horse profiles, you see the rider, so you want the judges’ eye to quickly go from the hat straight down the leg and on to the horse’s front end. You want to keep the judge’s eye locked on the horse, not your leg; so many of the outfits that have big designs and shine on the upper leg stop the judge’s eye from locking onto the horse. I always encourage a straight line of studs or small sparkle studs down to the boots. I also insist they sit straight for the very same reason. If the eye is stopped by designs or patterns of bling, it makes the judge have to fight their attention back to the horse, and sooner or later, your judge will subconsciously enjoy judging a smoother picture of horse and rider. On the same note, if you are too plain in dress and tack, you might be too nondescript in today’s show ring in big, competitive classes. Show pads are important as well. In my opinion, you should have a corner piece of leather or silver on the back corner of the pad to stop the judge’s eye from zipping right on to the horse behind you. It shouldn’t be big enough to distract from looking toward the horse’s front end, but a corner is tasteful. The worst pad I’ve seen judging was one that had an arrow pointing away from the rider at the horse behind them.”

Trainer and judge, Liz Bentley, shares her take on the An advocate of polish, poise, and a traditional western look, division of leather, rhinestones, and poise. “I own two pairs Liz enjoys the advancing trends of the western pleasure of chaps, black and tan, so I create tops to go with them. As a professional female western trainer, you don’t want to look or dress like an amateur. It’s very important to keep your look clean and attractive, but not overdone. Amateurs can get away with different colored chaps and more glitz than a pro. My clients have a tendency to dress more traditional western with minimal glitz, perhaps because that’s how I dress. I love strong traditional western clothing.” One of the main considerations in western is finding a balance between what works best for you and what you’re pining to wear. “Size and shape of riders is a big consideration. Always remember, just because it’s in style, that doesn’t always means it’s appropriate for everyone. Tall people should not wear

division, but does hope for more streamline looks to make their way back into the show ring. “I look forward to just seeing where we go from here. I definitely would like to see cleaner looking outfits, especially with the bling on the hats. Keep it elegant and attractive and western.” WORKING WESTERN The working western section called for the same apparel as the western pleasure (Article 196), but there are different considerations to be made based on the classes that fall under this “working western” umbrella. Reining, working cow horse, trail, and reined cow horse are all included, and considering the type of movement and expectations of the classes, trainer and judge LaRae Fletcher-Powell weighs in on the ever growing and evolving division. “An excessive amount of bling is in the eye of the beholder. Having patterns and bling on the shirt, chaps, and pad, in my opinion, is over the top. In horsemanship and reining seat equitation, I like to see a rider in one color from head to toe. The hat needs to be blocked properly in today’s trend. Boys should be in a solid shirt or a small pin stripe. A pattern is fine if it is subtle. Pants should be high-waist enough so they are above the belt line of the chaps. Chaps should not be baggy and short. They should follow the contour of the leg and fit snugly. Boys can have ties that have some color and they should not hang down more than 2 or 3 inches. Girls can be outfitted in all one color or they can have a variety of design in the upper body. In the working western disciplines, the “less is more” concept holds true.” As you begin your search in choosing a reining seat equitation or horsemanship outfit, LaRae offers some advice on the subject. “Considerations should be a color that goes well with the rider and horse. In most cases, I prefer a darker color for most riders to give them a slender look.  It also shows less movement on most horses.” And when a look comes together and adds to the picture, the rider gains confidence. “I believe if you’re dressed to win, then it helps the rider’s confidence and as a judge, you look like you’re there to win. This holds true in any event, not just equitation.” For LaRae, the main difference in dressing for western horsemanship compared to pleasure lies in the details. “The rider is being judged in horsemanship and the outfit needs to be more form fitting and slimming. Again, all one color is more tasteful in my opinion. In

Advice from

Arabian Amateur and Fashion Blogger

Brittney Berget

“Picking out riding suits has always been one of my favorite parts of showing. The clothes you choose can really be a reflection of you and your horse—so I always try to have fun with it. I like to pick colors that not only look good on my horse, but hues that I enjoy wearing. If you feel confident and good about your outfit, that’s going to show in your performance.” Finding your Match “It’s great to take risks with color and textures, like these ladies have, but it’s imperative to remember the basics, and that’s to look neat and presentable. Making sure suits are tailored as well as possible is the first step in ensuring your look is show-ring ready. There are also a handful of tiny little details that I make sure I have completed before trotting through the in-gate.” Trends “I think we are seeing a lot of really fun trends in the show ring right now. People are really stepping out of the box, and it’s so fun to see. One look I’m really loving is the monochromatic trend—like Katie Burr’s all white suit. It looks so fresh and chic and it’s really unexpected. In the past year we’ve also had the return of the day coat—Brooksley Sheehe wore a beautiful red coat when showing Voodoo Child, and it really was stunning. It looked fresh, and updated from day coats of the past and I predict we will be seeing a lot more of them in the Arabian show ring.”

western pleasure, the horse is being judged and the outfit can be louder and have more design. However, colors still need to go with the rider and horse. Some of the western pleasure outfits are starting to go over the top. Again, at times, less is more!” THE NEXT STEP—FINDING YOUR OUTFIT With the USEF apparel rules laid out and the insight from professionals and judges, it is time to reflect on what options you might have in finding a dynamic show ring look of your own. Bring in your personal eye and style, but remember who is really at the center of it all—our Arabian horse. Always dress to best emphasize your horse, not distract from their inherent beauty.

As far as trends go, what would you say is “in” this show season? The way of the future is the day coat for English. Western is stately elegant with designs from the shirt or jacket carried through to chaps and saddle pieces. What show ring trend are you looking forward to moving away from? Show attire is a part of the street fashion trends. Our fabrics, trims, and concepts come from the offering of the world runways and adapted for riding apparel. So, bold is in and dull is out. Our woolens have taken on a lovely luster, trimmed collars are everywhere, crystals and bling are a hit. Not everyone likes to follow trends—that’s why custom is so wonderful. We are able to satisfy everyone’s taste level and it does vary!

You have SHOW SEASON APPAREL What do you think a strong and polished look does to take both the horse’s color and the rider’s complexion into for the whole picture? It makes a winner! In a field account.

SADDLE SEAT Do you find that exhibitors have more confidence What are the main considerations when choosing a when they have a suit that truly fits them and saddle seat suit?

A history of the ring and knowing what looks good in different lighting, along with design capability, is paramount. How much bling is too much in saddle seat? When does it go from tasteful to over the top? Riding apparel is on the “fringe” of the fashion runway. Our fabrics, trims, and sequin fabrics are all drawn from street wear. With any trend, some will go too far and others remain conservative, that is why custom is so important to give a client choices. All tastes are not equal and no one wants to look just like another person at any function. This is a show, a stage-like production, and you are viewed by the judge and audience from 20-30 feet away. It is meant to be happy and enticing to show horses. You have people in the audience who have never been to a horse show and know nothing about horses. Give them something more to look at—clothing, beautiful riders, and horses. We want to expand our breed to other people, if it looks dull, boring, and not fun, they may find another sport. The audience looks at the rider and the judge should be looking at the horse!

The objective is to create the overall picture for “horse and rider” that is pleasing to the judge’s eye. You want to be able to be seen in a class of 20+, but you don’t need to have your apparel distract them to a point that they don’t notice the quality and performance of the horse. When the horse enters the ring, you want the crowd to say, “Wow, look at that,” referring to the whole picture, rather than being more drawn to the apparel!

Creating something that is unique and special to the specific horse and rider can be a challenge. If there is a “trend”, go in a different direction— of course, while following the rules and guidelines for your particular division—but remain in good taste.

How much bling is too much in saddle seat? When does it go from tasteful flash to over the top? If you read your rulebook, there are specific sections for each division regarding apparel. Riders and their apparel suppliers should know these rules and conform to them.

Beyond Priceless:

Estate Planning For Equestrians by Brielle Schwartz and Paige Stover Hague, Esq.

From its distinctive, finely chiseled head to its intelligence and dignified energy, an Arabian horse often causes love at first sight for anyone lucky enough to have a chance encounter. For over 650,000 Arabian owners in the United States, these horses are the centerpiece of everyday life. Only a horse lover can understand the unconditional love and lessons learned from these noble creatures; the desire to ensure the exceptional care of these dearly valued animals is a universal concern for equestrians. Yet, so often the cumulative worth of all things “horse” sneaks up on an equestrian and it never registers that a great love of their life has truly become a significant financial asset. This is especially true for those who own or breed multiple horses. The passion that equestrians have for their horses can often create a financial blind spot, and your horses may become a silent asset. The Center on Wealth and Philanthropy at Boston College has estimated that more than $41 trillion in assets will be passed intergenerationally by 2053. A significant percentage of that number will be in the form of equestrian assets. In 2011, a survey jointly conducted by the National Agricultural Statistics Service, the University Of Kentucky College Of Agriculture, and the Kentucky Horse Council projects that, in Kentucky alone, there are $23.4 billion in equine and equine-related assets. Recent data indicates $10.4 billion in equine-related assets in the state of New York while Michigan estimates $8 billion. Even though you may regard your Arabian horses as an investment of the heart, you must also be aware of the financial value it represents within your estate. Special planning is required to convey the legacy of horsemanship to future generations. If properly handled, your equestrian assets can create a legacy to be shared with your family and close friends. They also may be sold to financially benefit your family. Or, they can act as a charitable gift to create a philanthropic legacy. Ultimately, you want to certify that your horses are cared for properly.

What Is Your Plan?

Frequently, we hear equestrians say, “I am just leaving everything to my children—they can sort it out.” Such an approach is the most expensive way to transfer your equine assets. This plan, or lack thereof, almost never works. Frequently, children do not understand or share your passion for horses. They may not be as involved or invested in the industry and will not want the responsibility of horses or a farm. They may simply want the money. If you transfer your equine assets through your will (absent any other lifetime planning), the estate tax may be unmanageable for the beneficiaries. According to the 2013 American Tax Payers Relief Act, any amount that is over the federal estate tax exemption level is taxed at 40%. If the total of the assets that you plan to transfer are $2.5 million over the limit, it would require your beneficiaries to pay about $1,000,000 to the federal government. State inheritance taxes may apply too. This can force the sale of your horses or farm in order to settle with the IRS. Such hastily arranged sales rarely achieve optimal care or price. It is the job of the advisor who specializes in equine assets to begin a serious dialogue with you and your entire family. You need to share your desired outcomes for your beautiful Arabian companion and the affiliated assets with them. You do not want your horse left uncared for while your estate is in probate. A customized plan can be crafted to help to achieve all of your desires for your equine assets and estate. Once you have put your plan in place, you will experience the satisfaction and sense of control that comes with having taken the proper steps to accomplish your intentions. Knowing that you have left a meaningful legacy for the future generations of your family and that they will benefit from the wealth you have accumulated creates the ultimate sense of fulfillment.

Greedy Eaters – Slowing Down The Food Gobbler by Heather Smith Thomas Some horses bolt their feed and the partially chewed food may become impacted in the esophagus, causing “choke”. These horses choke because of greedy eating behavior— eating too much too quickly. “I have seen horses choke on hay, pasture grass, pellets, sweet feed, etc.,” says Dr. Amy Gill (equine nutritionist, Kentucky). “We can’t blame it on pellets or any particular type of feed. The horse is simply trying to swallow whatever it has in its mouth before the feed is adequately chewed or moistened with enough saliva,” she explains. Then the dry, inadequately chewed feed gets stuck/ impacted in the esophagus. “Since this is a behavioral issue, we use management tactics to correct it. The horse that bolts feed should not be fed in a group situation because it is generally worried about competition, wanting to eat the food before another horse eats it,” says Gill. “The easiest way to keep horses from choking is to moisten all their food,” says Dr. Stephen Duren (equine nutritionist, Performance Horse Nutrition). “The horse may not like his feed wet, and this will slow him down in his eating.” The wet feed will also “go down” more readily without getting stuck in the esophagus or causing respiratory issues by being crumbly or dusty. You can moisten a commercial concentrate/grain feed, pellets or forage cubes, for instance, and make a wet mash or even a sloppy slurry. If the food is wet and soft, it’s less likely to impact in the esophagus if the horse doesn’t take time to chew. The wet food is already “chewed” and moistened, and very easy to swallow. Traditionally, horsemen have put big smooth rocks in the grain trough, or a salt block in the grain tub, so the horse has to eat around the obstacles and hence eat more slowly. “It’s easier to just add a little water to the concentrate ration. The horse may eat it quickly, but at least he won’t choke on it,” says Duren. 240 | A r A bI A N Hor SE T I MES

“In a stable of horses, if you have a new horse come in, I suggest giving him moist feed for at least 2 or 3 days, until you know what kind of eater he might be. If he comes off the van or trailer hungry after a long trip and bolts his feed and chokes, the first thing the new owner gets is a medical bill to resolve that (with possible aspiration pneumonia from blockage that overf lows into the windpipe),” says Duren. Something as simple as wetting the feed of any new horse until he settles in and you know his eating habits can prevent potential problems. Also, the bolter should be fed several times a day (preferably 4 small meals per day) instead of just once or twice a day. “With infrequent, large meals, the horse may be so hungry that he eats too fast,” says Gill. “This horse should be turned out as much as possible, with forage (hay or pasture) in front of him continually, and never allowed to get hungry.” This removes the urgency for eating. With greedy gobblers, it also helps to give them their forage first. If the horse is really hungry and is given grain first, he may try to eat it too fast. If horses have had some hay to eat first, they may not be as greedy or excited about wolfing down the grain. “We humans tend to eat too fast when we are hungry, and horses are no different. Eating smaller amounts more often can resolve this problem. Horses that become extremely hungry and then eat large meals all at once can have swings in blood sugar levels, just like people do, and this can create increased irritability. If a horse has a bad attitude, it often helps to allow him continual access to food. Many behavioral issues can be related to dropping blood glucose levels,” she explains. The more natural the horse’s situation, the better, such as allowing him to be at pasture rather than confined and fed a few large, infrequent meals. “If the horse doesn’t have to compete for food and never is allowed to become extremely hungry, then he doesn’t feel the need to bolt his feed.”


A Leg Up

If the horse is stabled, you may just need to feed the hay more often. The unnatural conditions in which we keep our horses are for our own convenience, and this is not always healthy for the horse. If a horse is a greedy eater/bolter, it’s the owner’s responsibility to change the management of that horse to address the problem. “If the horse is at a boarding stable that can’t do that, find a different boarding stable, or hire a kid to go feed the horse at a time of day you can’t get there to do it,” says Gill.

them eat slower. There are a number of these “slow feeders” on the market but you can also make your own, or just put a large smooth rock in the bottom of the tub so the horse has to eat around it. You can put hay on top of the grain so he has to eat through the hay or nose it aside to get to the grain. Or you can mix chopped forage in with the grain.

The slow-feeder products make it harder for the horse to access the feed. “Some are a trough type of feeder with a wooden grid on top with different size holes,” says Dr. Tania Cubitt (equine nutritionist, Kentucky). “The wood “Most of the behavioral problems we have with horses— frame sits on top of the hay or grain and as the horse cribbing, weaving, laminitis, colic, bolting feed, etc.—are picks it out through the holes, the wood sinks down to created by human management. We may need to change the bottom. These feeders are a little user-friendlier than that management to correct a problem. Identify the the ‘nibble nets’—the hay nets with small openings. To problem, and the source of the problem, and then try to use a hay net safely, you have to hang it high enough resolve it as best you can with different management. off the ground so a horse won’t catch a foot in it,” says People who manage horses in a large barn are often faced Cubitt. The net is usually with challenges because not placed above the horse’s head, every horse can be on the same and dust and chaff may fall into program. They all need to be “Most of the behavioral problems the eyes. fed as individuals,” she says. There are many ways to slow down a greedy eater. Sometimes one method works for a certain horse, sometimes all of them work, and sometimes nothing works for that particular horse.

we have with horses—cribbing, weaving, laminitis, colic, bolting feed, etc.—are created by human management.”

It usually helps to put the food at ground level, if possible, and this is also the healthiest situation for the horse. Head-down for eating is the most natural position for the horse’s anatomy. Also, the horse can more readily cough out anything that starts to get stuck in the throat; there’s less likelihood of feed impacting in the esophagus or getting into the windpipe due to a blockage. Gravity helps get rid of it when the horse coughs. Some owners are hesitant to feed (especially the grain or concentrate part of the ration) on the ground, thinking the horse will put its feet in the feed tub or kick it over or get dirt in it. But you can usually put the feed in a muck tub or a bucket that’s deep enough they won’t step in it. There are many options for greedy eaters, using a type of feeder or hay net with small openings that makes

There are some other drawbacks to nets with small openings that make a horse work harder at getting the hay out. “One woman told me that her horse developed neck soreness after a few weeks of using the nibble net. Horses tend to get angry because the hay is more difficult to eat, and start yanking on it, trying to pull more hay out. The owner wondered why her horse’s neck was stiff and she had to have a chiropractor work on the horse. Then she realized it was because the horse was constantly yanking on that net, with its head up in an unnatural position. I prefer a slow-feeder trough that puts the feed on the ground in a lower feeding position,” says Cubitt. Those feeders are fairly safe. A horse can put a foot in them without risk of getting it caught. Another thing that helps minimize the problem of greedy eaters is to try to reduce the horse’s stress. “If you keep a schedule and always feed horses at a certain time and have a routine, they are less stressed and impatient (and less aggressive) than if you are sometimes late,” she says. n Volume 44, No. 2 | 241
