From The Publisher Reaching Out— To The General Public As I talk to Arabian horse people concerned about marketing the breed, I can’t help but notice that the one thing we all agree on, hands down, is that we need to attract new people to the community. That means we need to engage the general public.

When I get on an airplane, flip through an airline magazine and see advertisements for Quarter Horses, I admit to being envious. I know that the Quarter Horse Association, with its much larger membership, has quite a bit more purchasing power than we do and those ads don’t come cheap—but the principle I think we need to follow is there. We need an effective way to reach out to more people. So, I have a question for everyone: how can AHA do a better job of promoting the Arabian horse to the general public? Before you answer, let’s recognize that it is really a two-part question. First, how can AHA direct its efforts now in a way that doesn’t require more funding? And second, how can it raise money to expand its outreach in coming years? In my opinion, the most effective promotion of our breed to the general public will take both. What are your suggestions?

WelCome To Gemini aCres ProduCTion sale and e veninG in T usCany . On behalf of myself and Sally, I would like to welcome you all to Gemini Arabians’ Inaugural Equine Auction. During our tenure as owners of a successful transportation company, we learned that auctions were a great way to sell quality surplus equipment. The equipment always sold without a reserve. After a few sales, we had a loyal following of buyers waiting for our equipment to go to auction. Based on that success, we are confident we can accomplish the same goals with our horses. This year, we are offering 25 lots, including Arabians, Half-Arabians, Friesians and a limited number of embryos. Most of the Arabians will be sired by Da Vinci FM and JJ Bellagio with the exception of one sired by Van Gogh AM. We are very fortunate to own two of the finest and most accomplished stallions in the industry. Da Vinci FM has not only sired champions, he has many achievements in his own right. As a Yearling Colt, Da Vinci FM won U.S. National Reserve Champion. In 2013, he was named Scottsdale International Silver Champion and Region 7 Champion Stallion. Our other stallion, JJ Bellagio, which we co-own with Chris Barter, is also very accomplished. He is a U.S. National Top Ten Yearling Colt (third place overall), Silver Champion at the AHBA World Cup, and Unanimous Region 7 Champion Yearling Colt. When it comes to breeding, we are very discerning. We have chosen the finest mares in which to breed our stallions. Many are from the Bask lineage. The result is a breathtaking foal crop that will provide the industry with many more future champions. We would like assure interested buyers that all horses in the sale will be vet-checked, and records will be readily available. Buyers may also request additional information and ask their personal veterinarians to exam the horse. To facilitate the sale, we have constructed an innovative new indoor arena. The 100 ft. stage in the center ensures that there won’t be a bad seat in the house. And even though cocktails and dinner should make the evening festive, business will be the order of the evening. Our goal is to sell all the lots in an hour and a half. Ultimately, we would love to do an auction of this caliber every year. In the future, we hope to invite other breeders with exceptional yearlings to join in our sale. In our opinion, an auction done well is exciting and establishes a true value. We are really excited about this auction and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Best regards, Jim and Sally Bedeker

WelCome To Gemini aCres ProduCTion sale and e veninG in T usCany . On behalf of myself and Sally, I would like to welcome you all to Gemini Arabians’ Inaugural Equine Auction. During our tenure as owners of a successful transportation company, we learned that auctions were a great way to sell quality surplus equipment. The equipment always sold without a reserve. After a few sales, we had a loyal following of buyers waiting for our equipment to go to auction. Based on that success, we are confident we can accomplish the same goals with our horses. This year, we are offering 25 lots, including Arabians, Half-Arabians, Friesians and a limited number of embryos. Most of the Arabians will be sired by Da Vinci FM and JJ Bellagio with the exception of one sired by Van Gogh AM. We are very fortunate to own two of the finest and most accomplished stallions in the industry. Da Vinci FM has not only sired champions, he has many achievements in his own right. As a Yearling Colt, Da Vinci FM won U.S. National Reserve Champion. In 2013, he was named Scottsdale International Silver Champion and Region 7 Champion Stallion. Our other stallion, JJ Bellagio, which we co-own with Chris Barter, is also very accomplished. He is a U.S. National Top Ten Yearling Colt (third place overall), Silver Champion at the AHBA World Cup, and Unanimous Region 7 Champion Yearling Colt. When it comes to breeding, we are very discerning. We have chosen the finest mares in which to breed our stallions. Many are from the Bask lineage. The result is a breathtaking foal crop that will provide the industry with many more future champions. We would like assure interested buyers that all horses in the sale will be vet-checked, and records will be readily available. Buyers may also request additional information and ask their personal veterinarians to exam the horse. To facilitate the sale, we have constructed an innovative new indoor arena. The 100 ft. stage in the center ensures that there won’t be a bad seat in the house. And even though cocktails and dinner should make the evening festive, business will be the order of the evening. Our goal is to sell all the lots in an hour and a half. Ultimately, we would love to do an auction of this caliber every year. In the future, we hope to invite other breeders with exceptional yearlings to join in our sale. In our opinion, an auction done well is exciting and establishes a true value. We are really excited about this auction and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Best regards, Jim and Sally Bedeker

The Arabian

Foal—It’sFestival A Hit! by MARY KIRKMAN

The idea was too simple, really. Last spring, as Santa Ynez horsemen were considering ways of drawing attention to their horses, Aljassimya Farm Manager Bart Van Buggenhout suggested a foal competition for amateurs only. It is not a new concept, he conceded, but the way they did it could be all their own. Others in the club agreed; in four months, they put together their horse show, and over the weekend of October 5-6, at the Santa Ynez Equestrian Center, they realized that they had tapped into something special. They had hoped for 50 horses from the local area, but welcomed 70 from as far away as Northern California, and they saw the rails lined with 150 to 200 spectators each day. On Sunday morning, the Arabian Foal Festival was front page news in the Santa Barbara News-Press, and that evening, when a lot of people loaded up their horses, they went home happy.

What did the Foal Festival, which was put on by the Santa Ynez Valley Arabian Horse Association, do that worked so well? The Show Committee (Buggenhout, Greg Gallún, Henry Metz, Doug Dahman and Kelly Elm) not only listened to what people said they wanted, but also read between the lines: the event needed to be inexpensive, convenient, fun, and most of all, fair. “People said they wanted a show where everyone was equal,” Buggenhout says. “So that’s what we did.” The extremely accomplished individuals whose expertise, while amateur, is nearly at the professional level were not the target exhibitors. That was not about keeping people out, show organizers emphasized; it was about making others, such as those who had never shown before, feel more welcome. “When you level the playing field, people find it fair,” Buggenhout says. “Then they can come out and do it themselves. It’s just going back to the old days, when owners were showing their lone horse—and even showing national champions.”

“Showing a horse is overwhelming to a lot of people who love and appreciate Arabians,” adds Greg Gallún. “We really want to reach out to people who are afraid or intimidated about going to Scottsdale or Las Vegas, or even a regional.” The unspoken implication was that if beginners at the Foal Festival enjoyed the experience, they might eventually move on to other levels of participation. Organizers also paid attention to the conditions the weanlings and yearlings would face, knowing that many would be on their maiden voyage away from home (the show, publicity explained, was designed to be a “first time, low stress experience” for the youngsters). Weanlings were allowed to show at their dams’ side, and only leather chin straps, not chains, were allowed. The foals could be clipped with no more than a No. 10 blade, and whiskers, eyelashes and hair deep in the ear had to be left untouched. Stand-ups were casual (no hard poses), and the youngsters were required only to walk and trot. Whips were not permitted, but carrots, grass or grain could be employed to get a foal’s attention.

“The filly that won the weanling championship never really stood still, and it didn’t matter,” Gallún smiles. “Sometimes they don’t stand still perfectly. The thing that was neat about it is when the people knew that it didn’t really matter how perfectly your horse stood, it just changed the mentality. “Competition is great,” he notes. “I make my living at it. But we kind of took a step back from it in this show. Yeah, there’s first and second, and there’s gold, silver and bronze championships—it is a competition—but that wasn’t at the Audience members enjoying the relaxed atmosphere.

forefront. It was more just to enjoy some really beautiful horses in a beautiful area.” The Foal Festival offered 10 classes, divided into sections, with only five entries in each section. Competition was divided into colts, fillies and geldings, in-hand and performance-oriented, with first and second place awarded in each section from Saturday’s qualifying rounds. One judge, selected in rotation from the pool of Bill Melendez, Cynthia Richardson, Becky Rogers and Mark Wharton, officiated in each section, and afterward explained to the audience the positive points of the horses chosen. On Sunday, championships for each class were held, using a point system so that spectators would understand the thought behind each ranking. Also on Sunday was a Trail In-Hand class for yearlings, a new event scheduled to be introduced by AHA next year. “People loved that,” Gallún says. “When a horse finished a pattern, people were cheering like they would for a good park horse.”

The calendar was not nonstop competition, however; each day, performance demonstrations helped the public understand the disciplines that the performance-oriented in-hand youngsters would grow up to enter. And on Saturday night, a special award recognizing lifetime achievement was presented to Santa Ynez couple, Paul and Carol Hemming of Hemming Arabians, who had owned 1965 U.S. National Champion Stallion Raffon. Then Crimson Farms hosted a barbeque that brought oldtimers and newcomers together for an evening of fun and horse talk. There even was a touch of celebrity in the air with the presence of longtime breeder and owner Wayne Newton, who on Sunday afternoon told the crowd that he was inspired by the fun, low-key atmosphere of the show. He thanked the Santa Ynez Association for taking the trouble to bring everyone together. And when the competition closed, a Best Handler Award was presented to Mark Valdez. The Foal Festival closed with a stallion parade that despite 90-degree temperatures kept the audience lining the rail. On hand were Ali Sharoukh, Aria Impresario, Dakar El

Looking at the roster of who showed at the Foal Festival, Bart Van Buggenhout was pleased. “We had several owners who were showing their own horses,” he reports. “And in general, what I heard in the grandstand was several people who were saying, ‘This is something I could do—I want to do this next year.’” Volume 44, No. 6 | 79


Paul And Carol Hemming Honored For Their Half Century Of Commitment To Arabian Horses by KELLY ELM

And the foals themselves? “There were two or three that I think could easily go on to Vegas,” he says. “So, they came now to this show with a very good experience, a relaxed atmosphere, before they are thrown straight in front of the lions. This was good. That was part of the point, that this is a system that generates new people in the business and also new interest for further levels.” One key, some observers say, is that when exhibitors and foals are new to the show ring, few have high expectations. They don’t know how their foals will show, and they have no idea who they’ll be showing against, so the idea is more to have fun, see what happens, and learn about what they are doing. “This weekend was all about the amateurs,” Buggenhout emphasizes. “And you should have seen these handlers—they were so proud. They grew in the show, you know, they got better, and that creates enthusiasm.”

On Saturday evening at the Arabian Foal Festival, the Santa Ynez Valley Arabian Horse Association honored Paul and Carol Hemming of Hemming Arabians for their 50 years of breeding spectacular Arabian horses. The Hemmings’ first horse was Raffon, purchased in 1961 as a weanling; they owned him for the remainder of his life, and Paul was on the lead when Raffon was named 1965 U.S. National Champion Stallion. In 1973, the stallion also won the U.S. National Championship in English Pleasure. He can be found today in the pedigrees of many leading sires, including Afire Bey V and Marwan Al Shaqab. The Hemmings also own the national champion sire, BA Bey Elation. Paul, Carol and five of their six sons stood in the arena for the award presentation as Doug Dahmen recounted the touching story of this family and their best-known horse. After Raffon’s win at the U.S. Nationals, the Hemmings were in the horse business. It was because of Raffon that they bought the farm in Santa Ynez where they raised their children. At the end of the story, they were surprised with special guests—U.S. and Canadian National Champion in Western Pleasure HR El Kareem and Greg Harris. A highly successful, 19-year-old son of BA Bey Elation, his show career spans 15 years of competition and includes, among other top titles, two national reserve championships and four top tens. For the crowd at the Foal Festival, he was a living demonstration of the Hemmings’ ability as breeders, and he came complete with a garland of roses. Santa Ynez Valley Arabian Horse Association President Katie Russell, Treasurer Kelly Elm and Show Committee Member Bart Van Buggenhout presented the Hemming family with a beautiful bronze trophy. As they left the arena, the Hemmings were surrounded by what looked like paparazzi, and stood by the gate for nearly an hour, talking to people who wanted to know more about their horses and their remarkable achievements in the breed.

Another important aspect of the show, he says, is that it can so easily be replicated by other clubs. The laid back ambience means that a fancy arena is not necessary, which keeps the financial aspect in line. In Santa Ynez, they used the Equestrian Center’s working cow arena (it had a strong fence, in case any of the foals got loose), and dressed it up with flowers. The club also created a win/win situation by making the show a fundraiser for the Santa Ynez Valley Therapeutic Riding Program, and the charity took care of selling refreshments. Keeping costs low is important in attracting new exhibitors, he points out. Because the focus is local, they don’t face daunting costs to attend, and since most prepare their horses at home, training costs can be minimal. In recognition of this constituency, Buggenhout adds that the show schedule must be accommodating. “It just needs to start at a decent time on a Saturday,” he says, “and see that you’re finished on a Sunday at a decent time in the afternoon, so we have time to go home, settle the horses back in the barn, go to bed, and next day go back to work.” “I really would be surprised if there’s anybody who isn’t saying that the Foal Festival was a really good event and breathes a little bit of new life in a different direction,” says Gallún. “It wasn’t perfect, but we weren’t trying to change the world.” He observes that the goal of bringing new faces into the show ring also yielded a fresh realization of the love many owners have for their horses. One lady, in particular, caught his attention. She entered two horses, he recalls, but asked for only one stall.

His wife Nancy, the show secretary, called her to confirm that there hadn’t been a mistake. “The lady said, ‘No, they’re really good friends, so I’m going to have them stay together,’” Gallún recalls. He grins, recognizing that the woman felt the youngsters, away from home, would reassure each other in a strange environment. “That’s perfect and smart.”

these experienced breeders—Ruth, Sheila Varian, Paul Hemming, Wayne Newton—were there,” Greg Gallún, says. “I remember going to dinner parties years ago, when people really enjoyed each other, talked and laughed, went over what they saw during the day. We’ve lost a lot of that, and this was kind of coming full circle. There was really a natural energy— everyone was just positive, and it was wonderful.” n

For all its significance as a venue to attract new commitment to the breed, the Foal Festival also hit a personal note. Awarded Best Small Breeder at the show, Gallún, who is clearly at home in the highest level of Arabian competition today, cites a special reminder of the past. On Saturday, he glanced across the paddock and knew a thrill of déjà vue. There, like a replica of his sire, was a foal named Ibn Khemosabi. And Ruth Husband, Khemosabi’s owner and owner of the colt, a frozen semen baby, was in the crowd. “I remembered, like it was yesterday, watching Tom Bason show Khemosabi when I was a little kid,” Gallún says. “It was like going back in time—a lot of people had that same reaction. You could tell it was one of Khemo’s kids.” Ruth Husband, whose health has limited her presence at horse shows in the past few years, laughs. “The colt was such a squirrel,” she says. “He just thought he was having fun and he wouldn’t be still.” That didn’t dim her enjoyment of the weekend. She loved seeing the horses and all the old friends who came by to say hello. “It was such a delightful, happy experience!” That mix of old and new was invigorating, many say—a reminder of the great people and the fine horses that have characterized the industry. “All

Presenting The Personalities—

Shirley And Charlie Watts, Halsdon Arabians, Part 1

by MARY KIRKMAN


It is a fairly safe bet that back in the early 1960s, when Charlie Watts and the four other guys called the Rolling Stones burst upon the rock scene, Arabian horse breeders weren’t standing around saying, “Yeah, well, we’ll be seein’ him soon at the horse show.” That, of course, would have been reckoning without Watts’ wife, Shirley—but then, they might not even have known about her. In those days, rock wives were kept so far in the background that few fans realized some of their heroes were already taken. And that has been a key to Charlie and Shirley Watts; ever since they married in 1964, they have belonged to each other. There are many ways to describe the Wattses, but for those just meeting them, probably the most reliable is “unexpected.” For one thing, Shirley is not just a bill-paying owner; she is a genuine horsewoman who at one time rode with some of Britain’s top foxhunts, including the historic Quorn. And Charlie is not just a rock drummer. A detail known to Stones addicts but probably missed by casual fans is that he also plays with a highly-respected jazz band called the ABC & D of Boogie Woogie. And then there is the unusual fact that they have perfected the art of flying under the radar to such a degree that there are few contemporary photographs of them on the internet that haven’t been posed (and therefore approved) or taken at public events. Day to day, with the exception of a few admirers occasionally asking to shake Charlie’s hand, they live quietly, with the anonymity of normal citizens. A r AbiAn H orse Times • 2013


The synergy of the Watts partnership can be fascinating. Try to figure out who brought what into the marriage, and it becomes clear that such particulars have disappeared in the passage of time. “You’re both just so alike after 50 years of marriage,” Shirley muses. “Honestly, you’ve influenced each other because you’ve been different things to each other. And we have led quite separate lives at times; I’ve been home and he’s been on tour. He’s had a lot of different experiences traveling the world, and I’ve had mine mostly with the horses and dogs.” Deep down he’s still a city kid, and while she may have grown up in London, her heart is in the country, at their Halsdon Arabian Stud in Devon. One probable factor in making it work is their mutual respect and their pride in each other’s accomplishments. Charlie, for instance, might not be interested in riding (he tried once, on a gentle cob, and handed back the reins with a “well, okay, that’s it”), but he likes the horses and loves attending Arabian events. Shirley, meanwhile, understands his need to create music and to feel the energy of the city. Bottom line, take two creative personalities, mix them together in a challenging life, throw in a generous dose of “Keep Calm and Carry On,” and five decades on, you have a highly-individualistic couple, a group of fine Arabian horses with uncommon ability, and some amazing music. And a child and a grandchild. Away from the lights and the applause, that’s the Watts family. H alsdon a r abians


Shirley and Charlie Watts come from similar backgrounds: both grew up in north London, in working class families. Charlie’s father was a truck driver, his mother worked at a hospital, and he had one sister. Shirley was a middle child among 10; her father was a master plasterer, her mother a housewife. Both showed an early interest in art—she went to art school and maintains various aspects of her art to this day, and he went to another art school for one day (although he did not pursue it, he still draws, reputedly sketching every hotel room he’s stayed in through the years on tour). And they each had a passion. For her, it was horses, for him, music.

Charlie had no experience in horses and not much interest, but he knew his wife well enough to buy her one early on, a chestnut mare who, Shirley says in hindsight, “obviously had some Arab blood in her.” In the broadside of fame that hit the Stones, and abruptly put Charlie on the road and in the recording studio almost full time, the mare helped Shirley stay balanced. It wasn’t easy, she recalls, and typically, she reduces the situation to its fundamentals. “As far as I was concerned, if I wanted to stay married and stay with Charlie, there wasn’t much else I could do,” she says. “I loved him and I wanted to be with him.”

Shirley can hardly remember not loving horses, from the ones who pulled the milk wagons of her childhood to the Arabians she now owns. Reading Black Beauty “sealed it for me,” she recalls (probably not only her love of the animals, but also her sensitivity to them). She filled sketchbooks with her drawings of horses, and when she was older, spent hours in the library, poring over books of equine anatomy to learn their musculature and how they moved. With the wages from her first job, she began riding lessons. It was an obsession, she says—she loved being with the horses, observing them, catching on to “their funny little ways.”

In 1968, their daughter, Seraphina, was born, and as the years went on, mother and daughter found a common interest in horses, riding together and foxhunting. Horses became for Seraphina, as they are for Shirley, a life’s love; married now and living in the United States, she owns three.

Meanwhile, Charlie had discovered music. He was 13 when he first heard the pianist Meade Lux Lewis, whose style, while featuring the dizzying speed of early jazz, also represented the iconic black experience of rhythm and blues. He got his first drum kit in 1955, and at 16, joined a local jazz band (one of the members was his childhood friend Dave Green, with whom he performs today). He played with several groups over the next few years, and was working in an advertising agency and playing the drums at night when he met a girl named Shirley Ann Shepherd in a club. Far from a suave sophisticate, he arrived for their first date with a crowd of his friends. That didn’t really impress her, but they sorted it out, she got to know him, and they were together in 1962 when he signed on with an outfit called the Rolling Stones. On October 14, 1964, they married, soon after the Stones’ first tour of the United States.

The first Arabian—technically, a half-Arabian/halfBarb—came into their lives when the family relocated to France for a time in the early 1970s. Shirley spotted him at a horse market, and that was the beginning; over the next several years, after they returned to England, she acquired more. She hired a professional to compete on the ones that were of show caliber, experimented briefly with the ring herself, and owned some hunters for that aspect of her life. But as much as she loved her Arabians, she decided, she would not be a breeder. “I knew I’d have to sell the babies,” she says, “and I couldn’t bear the thought of that.” Famous last words.

In the late 1970s and into the ’80s, Shirley Watts enjoyed her horses, without, as she said, considering a breeding program. It was around this time that she made an interesting discovery: she might be a good horsewoman, but she was an absolute disaster in the show ring. “I did take a lot of lessons,” she acknowledges, “but when I would go into the ring, my nerve just left me as soon as I got in there. I’d think, ‘Why are they looking at me? Am I on the wrong leg?’ So, one time I thought, ‘Well, I’ll do something about this.’ And I took a tranquilizer, and then of course, I didn’t know what I was doing. I really was going around on the wrong leg. “I look at Charlie and think, ‘How do you do it?’” she interjects parenthetically. “All these people looking at you! I don’t believe he’s even conscious of the crowd. They go on and he says there is this huge, huge surge of adrenaline, and that’s actually what gets you through it.” She pauses. “That didn’t happen for me.” And then there was once when she and her horse were lined up last. “It was a pretty big class, and the judge came up and I thought, ‘Oh, she’s going to move me up already, she’s obviously made a mistake, putting me last.’ And she said, ‘My dear’—she was a very kind lady—‘would you like to leave the ring now or later?’” Shirley chuckles. “It was all wrong anyhow, because my dog, who I thought I’d shut away in the horse box, followed me into the ring, which didn’t help.”

A r AbiAn H orse Times • 2013


Breeding came somewhat more naturally. Her program has been a reflection of her own taste in Arabians, built largely from Polish, Egyptian and Russian stock. She recalls when her interest in Polish bloodlines was sparked. They had gone to the European Championships, in Ostend, Belgium, in 1986, to show a couple of horses, and she fell in love with Pilarka, who was named Champion Mare, and Penitent, Champion Stallion. It would be several years before Pilarka joined the Halsdon Arabians broodmare band, but on that day, Shirley Watts became fascinated with the ‘P’ bloodline of Janów Podlaski Stud. Four years later, she and Charlie attended their first Polish Sale and National Show, and since then, they have missed very few. “You couldn’t keep me away,” she says. “I’d say, ‘I’m not going to buy anything this year.’ Charlie kept threatening to tie my hands to my ankles.” Her smile is apparent. “He’d just go to get a cup of coffee …” Over the years, Halsdon Arabians became home to many top horses of Polish ancestry. The ‘P’ line was in residence—among others, there was the stallion Piechur, who died recently at the age of 33, and Platoon, Pilot and Pikieta—and in time, Michalów’s ‘E’ line was added. An Egyptian perspective that included the stallion Simeon Sadik was introduced, along with a dash of Russian, and a selection of British and American horses. And through the years, Halsdon Arabians has accounted for a steady flow of national titles all over Europe and Scandinavia.

For sure, Shirley and Charlie Watts did not set out to own more than 200 horses. Asked what advice she would give to new breeders, Shirley replies dryly, “Get no more than six.” And adds, “Follow your own instinct.” For her, it has always been about breeding the best horse, based on her experience in the saddle as well as studying their bloodlines, not following a prescribed heritage. This year, Halsdon Arabians was responsible for two All Nations Cup titlists, 3-Year-Old Filly Champion Alfabia Akiabara, and Etnologia, third in 7 to 10-Year-Old Mares, both of whom will be going on to the Salon du Cheval.

Today, Shirley prioritizes her horses’ care more than anything, and that outlook is part of her larger picture of animals coexisting with humans. “They’re struggling to get through life,” she says, “and no one knows anything about it really.” She recalls one of the low points in her life, when she was 10 and her family was broken up for a year. “We’d lost our house and had nowhere to live, so we were put into different homes,” she says. “Luckily, I had my sister with me. We were just puzzled—we didn’t understand, so we just sort of waited. It’s like animals really, isn’t it? Like with dogs. When you leave your dog and tell it to stay, and you say, ‘I’ll be back.’ They have no idea, really, so they just wait. That’s what we, as children, did.”

That is why she believes that communication is so important. “Any animal—specifically domestic animals, because we don’t necessarily see any other sort—will communicate,” she says. “We’re just guessing what they’re telling us, but they understand us.” It is instinct, she offers, the sort of intuitive understanding that enables animals to navigate through a world in which they have so little control. “I think they have what we have lost—that gut feeling that we have too, but we don’t trust it enough,” she continues. “We ignore our feelings, really, and at our own peril. Don’t you find that? If I don’t follow my instinct because I don’t trust it, how can I trust anybody else? Because nobody knows me better than myself, especially as I get older.”

Horses as individuals have meant a lot to her through the years. “Sometimes I’ve felt that however much you love a particular horse, it’s not until they’re gone that you recognize how much you did love them because you miss them so much,” she observes. “I read something once—so it’s not really an original thought of mine—by Collette; she said, ‘It is the image in the mind that binds us to our lost treasures, but it is the loss that shapes the image.’ It’s lovely, isn’t it?” It is apparent that animals, including those she doesn’t own, are a cornerstone of her life. Asked to mention a high point, a memorable time, in her life, she shies away from personal family moments and cites instead a recent encounter with a horse. On a day in October, she and Charlie were invited to Banstead Manor Stud, where the Thoroughbred stallion Frankel, rated the world’s best race horse, had recently finished his first season at stud. Shirley was entranced. “He was so gentle and kind— everybody would love to meet him,” she says. “We wanted to stand and gaze at him all day because he had this air of greatness. You can feel this incredible power coming from him, but he is so confident in himself that he doesn’t need to show it.” She marvels that they were able to go into the stall with the stallion, scratch his back and play with him, which while a common practice in Arabians, is decidedly not in Thoroughbreds. She came away from the visit with a renewed respect for the way the horses were handled at the stud farm. The racing business at that level is a large financial investment, she concedes, but that is not wholly the reason for the careful, considerate management of the horses. Many of the horsemen are second or third generation (or more), she argues, and their regard for the horses is built-in. “They would be horrified [at our industry] because people don’t show the respect to the horse that they should,” she reflects. Pushed for an example, she replies, “It’s the slyness of just giving a quick look [in the show ring] to see if anyone is watching, and then flicking the whip very hard and sharp across the hind legs to the other side, where basically no one can see it. That’s a mean action isn’t it? It’s like some people know the value, but not the worth.” Pilarka (Palas x Pierzga) A r AbiAn H orse Times • 2013


SHF Pearlie Mae (SHF Southern Whiz x Citona) While Shirley has built Halsdon Arabian Stud to its success today, Charlie has refined his music career through two, going on three, generations of fans. And evolved in ways that screaming teenyboppers in 1964 would never have imagined. He may favor tee-shirts for his on-stage appearances because they are more comfortable to work in, but off-stage, he is perennially on international best-dressed lists for men. In 2012, a GQ article observed, “The thing about Charlie Watts is that he makes everyone else look like they’re trying too hard,” and quoted his comment that he loved the traditions of fine tailoring. Considering that men’s custom tailoring is understated—the man wears the clothes, not vice versa—that makes sense in the line-up of characteristics that have defined Charlie Watts over the years. As with Shirley, clues to Charlie can be found in their childhood. That he plays jazz now goes back to his earliest attraction to music. In a 2009 television

interview, he explained that the type of music which first got his attention, Meade Lux Lewis’ jazz, was the basis for all the music that followed—swing, jazz, rock and roll, blues. It still fascinates him (the Hollywood Reporter has called his performances “utterly flawless”), and more than one publication has noted that while his face is immobile or perhaps amused through his Rolling Stones concerts, he frequently grins when backing the bass and two pianos of his other group. That is, perhaps, just another side to Charlie Watts. It connects even to the clothes (in the era he came from, he says in the GQ piece, jazz was very hip and fashionable for young people), and it’s one more piece of the history he and his wife share. Reduced to the basics, the ongoing creativity of Charlie’s music is not unrelated to Shirley’s long term commitment to developing top Arabian horses. The desire to create has been a lifelong characteristic on some level for both of them.

So, what’s a typical day at home for the Watts family? Pretty normal, Shirley says. Charlie rises first and lets the dogs out, then makes coffee. When she gets up, she feeds the dogs and he makes her a cup of tea. That is key, one of thoughtful gestures that she most appreciates in 50 years of marriage. Marriage, she feels, is an ongoing stream of give and take, compromise and trust, and simple, caring details like a cup of tea in the morning speak volumes. “I think it is the things like that, quite ordinary things, that are important in a relationship,” she says.

on a fitting at his tailor—to the mutual horror of both Charlie and the tailor. Women aren’t a common sight in the dressing rooms of Savile Row-type tailoring establishments.

Over the years, there has had to be a lot of freedom in their union. She doesn’t say it, but in decades of press coverage that would love a good scandal, the story on Charlie Watts has been, invariably, of devotion to his wife. So the challenge, apparently, has been the accommodation of two people who enjoy each other’s full confidence in their individual pursuits. After enough time in the country, walking the dogs, playing with the emus and generally relaxing, Charlie will head off back to London. Shirley laughs when she recalls how she once surprised him there, dropping in

These days, a special gift for Charlie has been their granddaughter, Charlotte, who recently turned 17. “I think Charlie was so upset at not being able to be with his own daughter as much as he would like to have done, he’s really sort of made it up to our granddaughter,” says Shirley. “Sometimes, she goes with him on parts of the tour. He’s very worried about having her around, but he’s so pleased as well.”

All in all, though, for her the bustle of the city doesn’t compare to the tranquility of their Devon home, and she accepts their freedom as a given. “It’s like when children get into their teens,” she says. “You have to let people go and do what they want to do. You just have to.”

She smiles with the same wry humor as most of her generation: back in the swinging 1960s, when the

A r AbiAn H orse Times • 2013


youth culture was taking over the world, who would have envisioned themselves as grandparents? Now she enjoys it. “Youth is a wonderful thing,” she offers. “I can laugh when I look back and think about how I [as an artist and sculptor] would tell my father how to mix plaster.” Her father was an artist in his own right, crafting elegant moldings by hand. “He would sigh and say, ‘All right, girl, get on with it.’ “I think you don’t care so much about what you’re like—what other people think of you—as you get older,” she reflects. “I don’t know if it’s more confidence or if you just don’t care because you realize that it doesn’t matter. When I was very young, I thought I didn’t care, but of course I did care, terribly. And I watch it in my granddaughter now.” At this point in her life, there is a serenity to Shirley Watts, a gentle acceptance of life, much like her gentle acceptance of animals being who they are. She is both more open about her private feelings than expected, and yet firm in not revealing more. But she never dodges a question. She always offers a response.

And Charlie? “He’s a very difficult man to get to know,” she observes, and references his early shyness. “Very, very, very private. Always has been.” Yet—he loves attending Arabian shows, mostly because he likes meeting the people. In the end, there are the Wattses and there is Halsdon Arabians. And Halsdon Arabians, which is all about horses, provides a unique view into who Shirley Watts is. “I just want them to have a good life. They do here, of course,” she says. “I feel such an affinity with them. It’s like a visceral feeling. Every night, when I go out to see my horses, we’re pleased to see each other and I stand with each one, by the door, just stand there. They’re so peaceful; there is a wonderful air of calm that emanates from them.” Again she turns to humor. “And then you can feel that they’re thinking, ‘Well, I’ve got to go to sleep, so please go.’” ■

The Third Annual

Arabian Breeder Finals by ANNE STRATTON

When the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona launched the Arabian Breeder Finals three years ago, the show was assured of a good reception. For one thing, it focuses on halter, and is a home show for more top trainers

in that division than any other location in the country. For another, it is run by the management team that also

puts on Scottsdale and the Las Vegas World Cup, so participants knew from the start that procedures would be

efficient. And finally, it offers significant prize money; in 2013 paying out more than $115,000 in 43 classes. This year, 176 horses answered the call, and it is worth noting that more than 10,000 spectators arrived to see them.

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


Held October 9-12, the show also is known for its sense of community. Bob and Dixie North, who have been strong supporters of the Finals since its inception, go to plenty of high powered shows a year, and value the Finals as much for its vibrant ambience as for its fine horses. “I would call it one of the most sociable shows that we go to.” “We’ve tried to make kind of a party atmosphere,” nods Janice McCrea-Wight, President of the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona and a member of the Show Commission. She mentions some of the show’s amenities. A red carpet and select vendor area was set up in the Equidome, which has been enclosed, making it impervious to storms or heat. And around the concourse, full service cabanas were booked by breeders, owners, training centers and enthusiasts who welcomed friends to watch the action, see videos, talk business or pleasure, and enjoy the hospitality offered. Every day, during a break between classes, scheduled at happy hour, hors d’oeuvres were passed. Even the start time promotes interaction. “The show doesn’t begin until 2 in the afternoon, because we want people to be able to visit the farms.” “People seemed to very positive and supportive of one another,” Show Manager Taryl Pearson observes. “There was a lot of socialization among the cabanas and on the red carpet. The feel was very festive.” This year, the level of competition could be seen clearly in the stallion and mare titlists, who already boasted national credits. Sandro Pinha led Bob and Dixie North’s El Chall WR, a 5-year-old with two U.S. national reserve championships on his record, to the title in Stallions, over Wendell Hansen’s WH Patriot, a U.S. national reserve champion and top ten, showing with Travis Hansen. And Champion Mare Azalea LBA, owned by Lazy B Arabians, was a multi-national top ten during her earlier career; Dan Bergren presented her to the win, with Shellbird’s U.S. national top ten Verastrella, shown by Steve Heathcott, taking reserve. Azalea LBA, says her trainer, Rory O’Neill, represented more than just herself. She was part of a group—three generations of a family—that came to the show in tribute to their late owner, Lazy B Arabians’ Beverly Halquist, who died in August. The matriarch of the group was Azalea LBA’s dam, the highly successful broodmare Amelia B, who won the 10 & Over Mare class and went on to finish Bronze Champion in the Senior Mare Championship, showing with O’Neill. Fourth was another Amelia B daughter, Vanity Fair LBA, already the winner in the 3-Year-Old Filly class. In addition, Azalea LBA’s son, Avalon LBA, won the Yearling Colt/Gelding class for his age division and the Scottsdale Signature Champion Yearling Colt class, and was reserve in the Junior Colt Championship. Another Amelia B son, Amelio LBA, owned and shown by J.D. Smith, picked up two reserves at the show.

Both Azalea LBA and Amelia B had been broodmares, not shown or show-conditioned for some time, although O’Neill remarks that they were in very good shape—just not as tightly fit as horses who campaign through the year. That introduces another element of the Breeder Finals: “This is a breeders’ show,” he says. “The judges who are trainers also manage breeding programs, so we thought the environment was right. These were quality mares who looked nice and they show well; from five mare classes, three of the ones on the front row were from that family.” When the word got around that the 13-year-old Amelia B would be in the ring late Thursday evening, many horsemen with other plans remained at the show grounds or came back to see her. Even her breeders, Roger and Stephanie McMahon from Washington, were in the audience. Pegasus Arabians honored with the Hennessey Arabians High Point Breeder Award.

Volume 44, No. 6 | 109


As O’Neill pointed out, an important aspect of the Breeder Finals is its innovative judging panel. The show commission focused on experience, but with a broad range of perspective. “We’ve had some international judges, some breeders, and a couple trainers that aren’t officially judges,” says McCrea-Wight, “and some people from the past, like Don DeLongprè, who did a great job.” This year, the judges were: trainers Ted Carson, Mike Neal and Mike Wilson; international judge and trainer/handler Glenn Schouckens, from Belgium; breeder Linda Mehney; and in his long career, DeLongprè, who has been a breeder, trainer of both halter and performance horses, and owner. McCrea-Wight admits that since some do not judge on a regular basis, it sometimes slows the process a bit, but the confidence of the exhibitors is worth it. “I think the show is very non-political,” Bob North affirms. “They go out of their way to pick judges that don’t normally judge the horses and the shows leading up to U.S. Nationals. So, you get a fresh set of eyes looking at horses and evaluating them.” With those factors going for the Breeder Finals, it is probably not surprising that it attracts a worldwide audience. Through the convenience of live streaming, the competition reaches a larger crowd than the considerable one it attracts in Arizona. Janice McCrea-Wight discovered that when her stallion, Rahere, won 10 & Over Stallions, and she led Rahere’s daughter, Rah Silkk, to the championship in 2-Year-Old Fillies ATH. “I think I had over 200 comments from around the world about how good Rahere looked,” she says. “It’s just amazing, the response. In this day and age, you’re out in the world—no question.” Bob North agrees. “We had lots of comments on Facebook and e-mails,” he says, “so it is watched and observed by many people around the U.S. and around the world.” As it grows, the show also is developing its own signature traditions. One that is especially appreciated is the Don Morse Perpetual Trophy, in memory of the popular breeder who died in 2011. Presented to the Champion Stallion, it was inaugurated last year by Janey Morse in recognition of her husband’s enthusiasm for the Arabian breed. This year, it was won by El Chall WR, owned by Bob and Dixie North. For the Norths, the victory was particularly sweet. “Last year, Magnum Chall HVP won that award,” says Bob. “So it was kind of exciting for us to take El Chall and have him be the second horse to ever win the award. Also, we were happy for Lucky and Raegen Lurken, owners of Magnum Chall. They were there and they were able to go in the ring and present the trophy to one of Magnum Chall’s sons.” A benefit of all the attention is the marketing aspect of the show. “There were a lot of horses that have sold at this show for the last couple years,” McCrea-Wight says. 110 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


At this point, the Breeder Finals has found its following. North believes that part of the show’s success is related to the show commission’s attention to pleasing its supporters. “The people that are behind the show, particularly [Show Commission Chairman] Jay Allen, have been very good in listening to the critiques or the comments from people who attended the show,” he says, “and in many cases responding to those comments and changing the show accordingly.” For Taryl Pearson, the challenge is to expand on the show’s promise. “I think we would like to continue to build on the fun, social portion of the show, as the quality of the horses was definitely there this year,” she says. “The committee for the show is really focused on growing the Arabian Breeder Finals into the premier halter show.” n

sax Arabians Germany Walter Mishek speaks with Reinhard Sax, who with his wife, Monika, is celebrating 25 years of breeding Arabian horses. How and why did you become involved with the Arabian breed? In 1985, my son and I took riding lessons with a successful trainer in Landshut, with the result of my son’s desire to have his own horse. Our first was a Warmblood show jumper named Galapagos, who initially had been put at our disposal for the riding lessons. As my son’s ability improved, it became clear that in addition to Galapagos, we needed to find a younger and better horse for jumping.

Essteema—1999 Triple Crown winning filly—here 14 years later, just presented during the Aachen weekend for the 25th Anniversary of Sax Arabians.

I didn’t wish to spend my time at public stud farms and was, therefore, looking to find a suitable yard for myself within the Landshut area, my home and birthplace. The search was extended to the whole of Lower Bavaria, and in the summer of 1986, we found the property—an old, run-down farm—that was to become our home. At first there were thoughts of a perfect renovation job; however, on closer inspection, it was quickly recognized that we needed to initiate the process of getting demolition authorized and stick to that plan. The rebuilding of the yard with the stables began in March 1987, and a year later, the move which had been so longed for took place. Due to our friendship with successful and well-known breeder, Fritz Koenig, I was already very close to Arabian horses. As a consequence, I immediately had to get my first Arabian. It was a 2-year-old colt called Nomech, a son of World Champion Nahbay. I, full of pride, led him myself over the yard and into his box. 112 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Nomech was my basic training, and I learned how to handle an Arabian horse from scratch—in particular, a young Arabian stallion. I decided to enter Nomech for the “Selection for breeding purposes,” but unfortunately, had to be content that he was sent home “not selected.” A few months later, Fritz Koenig and I went to an Arabian Show in Mindelheim, and I fell in love with a 2-year-old filly by Neman called Bavaria, who was bred and presented at the show by Silvia Garde-Ehlert. She won her class, and shortly after, changed to my stable, together with her half-sister, Nemanda, and Nemanda’s 2-week-old filly Nijala (by Naturel). I later re-named Bavaria, “Baviera.” Within the first few months, the six boxes which had been planned were full, and I had to think about expansion. A further six stalls, which are currently stallion boxes, were built. After everything had developed so nicely, there were then horses which I just had to have. First, I fell in love with


Naftalin’s son Bagdad at Robby den Hartog’s in Holland. Horses of great pedigree followed in quick succession: the Menes daughters Marenga, Menascha, Merana, Menina, Frenata, Gypsey and Katharena; Narissa, a daughter of Mashab; Nascha and Nenija, daughters of Neman; Menora, daughter of Naturel; Takema, daughter of Kumir; Kuma, daughter of SR Nadom; Marsipan, daughter of TC Charm; and Marei, daughter of Kilimandscharo. The first foals were planned and the first gratifying successes in breeding could be recorded. The year 1990 saw our first show success. The yearling filly Menora (Naturul x Marei), half-sister to Marenga, won her class at the B show in Babenhausen. In 1989, to train and exercise the horses and to ride young horses and stallions, I built an indoor arena, and in 1990, a stable block with a further 16 boxes for young horses. Bagdad, the new acquisition, won his class at the National Show in Aachen in 1990.

Also, a very successful horse at shows immensely increases the value of the horse as well as of the offspring and the breeding farm. It is also very important to visit and to participate at Arabian horse shows in order to represent our breeding program and observe others.

We hear about the U.S. Arabian type of halter horse and the European Arabian type of halter horse. Is there a difference, and if so what is it? For us, the U.S. market is far away. Our last visit to America was around 13 years ago. We visited the 114 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Scottsdale Show. With the European type of Arabian horses, we are more confident, and we are also extremely successful, even at the international shows like the All Nations Cup in Aachen, where more than 20 countries always participate.

What can be done to make the marketing of Arabian horses more successful around the world? I think visiting shows is one thing, but it is also very interesting and informative to invite breeders and Arabian horse lovers to your farm, show them how and where our horses live, how we treat them, and how great it is having a life with them.


The market is already worldwide! For example, this year we have sold horses to Iran, the U.A.E., Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and for the first time, two horses to the Kosovo. That’s a great feeling, having people from new countries contact us to let us know that they have followed us—sometimes over years—and now, when they are ready to start their own breeding program, they come to us. That’s the best confirmation we get for all our hard work!

What is the future for Sax Arabians? To continue our successful breeding program, always try to be selective, and never be stable blind. With our two trainers, Simon Kelly from the U.K. and Sebastian Hanss from Germany, we are able to have our horses always in good condition, and we offer show training as well as handling stallions for outside breeders. For as long as we can, we will give the horses at Sax Arabians a “paradise on earth,” and we will keep

them as natural as possible! We will use the best and strongest for breeding, break the young for riding, and sell them to private riders or sport riders.  

What is the future for the Arabian horse?

Breeding Arabian horses is a passion! The future for the Arabian horse will be what we make of it, and this depends on breeders’ decisions and the Arabian horse industry. We hope to be able to spend our life together for many more years with our lovely and beautiful homebred Arabian horses. We are always happy to meet friendly new Arabian horse lovers, riders or breeders, and to share our passion for the love of the breed. And, of course, to continue our future breeding program! n Volume 44, No. 6 | 115

One-On-One With

Dr. Hans J. Nagel As the Arabian horse community becomes increasingly global, Walter Mishek interviews the President of WAHO about the state of the Arabian horse today.

In your opinion, what is the international importance of the All Nations Cup show, held every September in Aachen? When the European countries came together in the early 1980s to create the European Show Commission, and to bring the many European national shows to the same level and apply the same rules, the Salon du Cheval and the All Nations Cup existed already. These shows were maintained as they were, with the aim that on these two shows, all breeders worldwide should be invited to participate. The World Championship in Paris made its own way and became definitely, as great an attraction as the city of Paris itself. Aachen had the great advantage of being centrally located amid countries which had a strong Arabian horse population, and its showground offered fantastic facilities for stabling and presenting horses. Due to this infrastructure and to the very well considered framework in which this show was conducted, it has a special touch and atmosphere. In addition, all 118 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

participants quickly understood that the organizers were extremely concerned that the presentation of the horses was done in the best possible manner, and that judging was carried out in a way that there was no other aim than to let the best horses be the winners and the champions. This attitude gave the show a very good, unique, international reputation. Only slight changes have been made over the course of time concerning improvement, mainly in the field of publicity or by letting the audience be more involved in the judging process and its final results. In view of that, Aachen can be seen as a model of how a good show, with a great ambiance, can be carried out. I personally think that its correct judging procedure, pleasant atmosphere and good-humored audience, make Aachen a great attraction. Those are the reasons that the best horses worldwide are presented annually just in this show. Naturally, also, the Nations Cup Trophy as such, is a very appreciated treasure, as is the show’s Breeders’ Cup. All this adds to the feeling of friendly cooperation and a fair competition between all participating countries.


What’s new happening with WAHO? When and where will the next convention be? WAHO’s policy is striving for consistency. Our main aim is to guarantee the integrity of the purebred Arabian horse. Correct registration and the control and assistance for the proper maintenance of the corresponding studbooks have always been the main items in each WAHO meeting; held annually by WAHO’s Executive Committee or every two years by the General Assembly. We have reached out a little bit into the subject of welfare, which is in the mind of many people, and there are regrettably enough indications that the abuse of animals can be seen also in the Arabian horse world. Monetary interests and the drive for exaggerated profits are the main reasons, but also carelessness and insufficient knowledge. Therefore, in each General Meeting, guest speakers are invited to report on educational issues or the latest scientific progress, some with positive effects and others with possible long term negative consequences in the horse world. The next General Meeting is in preparation to be held in Doha, Qatar, in the fall of 2014, and the following one will be held in Australia in the fall of 2015.

Is the breeding style of Arabians in Europe and the Middle East different from that in the United States, and if so, how? In principle, the style of breeding in Europe and the Middle East, as well as in the United States, is generally the same. There are differences in the breeders’ aims and interests in keeping Arabian horses in whatever countries they live. Personally, I think there are two major groups. One is the large group of smaller breeders and Arabian horse enthusiasts who are just enjoying their horses, and treat and hold them as a hobby for themselves or for their whole family. Such lovers of Arabians exist everywhere worldwide, and form by far the majority. Maybe up to 80 percent, or even more, of all Arabian horse owners fall in this first category.

A second group, a minority, has special interests, and there are several sub-groups. One contingent is looking to be successful in the show ring, and is keeping and breeding horses mainly for this purpose. They may have their own ideas of how to reach their goal. Another focuses on sporting events. This includes riding presentations, performance sports or even racing. And a third faction probably consists of horse owners who are heavily involved and concentrating on breeding Arabians in order to improve them, to change them according to their taste, or to save them as a heritage—each one “à son gout” [to his own taste]. Breeders of all these different interests can be found in each country where Arabian horse breeding takes place. If there is any difference in what is typically desirable in the United States, as compared to Europe, then it would be that Americans generally prefer a bigger and stronger horse.

Based on these differences, should there be more than one international standard for Arabians? What is your opinion as a breeder? I personally think there should definitely be more than one standard of Arabians. However, the reality is different. A show standard has already emerged, more or less the same type. All show-interested people look for such a standard Arabian, because it seems to be in high demand when it has a potential to win. However, such a development is not in line and desirable for the Arabian breed as a total population. Never in history has there been one Arabian standard horse, due to many circumstances, such as environmental factors or personal preferences. Everybody knows how many names of strains in history existed. Whether or not “strain” had something to do with certain types is a delicate subject, but it has definitely to do with preferences. So many horse breeders in history were collectors of certain strains and showed a special interest in them. A great variety of Arabian types makes the whole breed more interesting and attractive, and offers many alternatives in breeding and selecting. Standardization has the disadvantage of becoming more and more Volume 44, No. 6 | 119


Dr. Hans J. nagel

boring, and is not in line with the way of thinking and behaving of humans and their societies. However, it takes curious and inventive people to go their own way; maybe not all are successful in their ideas, but still such people are needed and they should have the courage to come forward with what they do and what they have achieved. It keeps the breed attractive.

What is the future for our Arabian breed? In the last few years, the Arab countries have played a big role in the development of the Arabian breed. They have been good buyers, they have created very attractive studs, they have gained a lot of knowledge, and many of them are doing their own breeding or organizing their own social events. This should not be a big surprise, since the Arabian horse is basically their own cultural heritage and one of the very few treasures in the thousand years of history which the Arabian world has developed. In the rest of the world, the situation is regrettably totally different. Hopefully, the present trend of reduced interest in the Americas and in Europe will come to an end. For this to occur, however, requires that the Arabian horse not be considered only as an object for marketing. Sales promotion with all its different methods and strategies will not help the Arabian breed to flourish again. To show true affection for this breed in whatever way, seems to be the answer. If the availability of a horse is just a matter of price, that attitude does not reflect a great affection. Something which is the integral part of a grand total is usually indispensable. Maybe there are not many people who think that, but there are for sure some, and the future of the Arabian horse depends on them.

You have just published another incredible book, The Arabian Horse, Nature’s Creation and the Art of Breeding. Share what questions your new book will answer for fellow Arabian breeders worldwide. I had in my life many unexpected and wonderful occasions to get very close to Arabian horses, and also to the Arab countries and their people. My latest book was written with the intention of letting readers know that this Arabian horse offers so many attractive aspects. If these were better known, they would make people more curious and let them develop a fascination for this in fact, unique breed, compared to all other horse breeds. Their historical background is unique and colorful. How this breed could survive for more than 2,000 years until our day is a further interesting and educational story, and it is valuable to know which people did it and how they made it. And finally, what could this horse offer to breeders today when one looks at it in the totality of its merits, and does not get lost in narrow specification and standardization? There exist a lot of very interesting and properly written books about the Arabian horse. However, there is not one single book on the market which gives a total view over this breed and allows a glance behind its enormous development in the last centuries. The knowledge of such facts allows better conclusions, better decisions and better choices of how to enjoy and to breed Arabians. I hope the book fulfills these above promises.

Dr. Hans-Joachim Nagel has been breeding Arabian horses for more than 45 years, and is known worldwide for the straight Egyptians produced at his Gestßt Katharinof, near Bremen, Germany. He is a globally respected horse show judge, and has served in the administration of the breed; among other positions, he was president of the German Arabian Breeding Association for 20 years, and since 2004, has been president of WAHO. He is the author of three books on the Arabian horse: Hanan, The Story of the Arabian Breed; Return and Renaissance, The Return of the Arabian Horse to the Arabian Peninsula; and The Arabian Horse, Nature’s Creation and the Art of Breeding. In 2009, Dr. Nagel was the recipient of the Arabian Horse Breeders Association Lifetime Achievement Award.

Aachen ALL NATIONS CUP 28th of September 2013

The last weekend of September is the date were all breeders and lovers of Arabian horses are anxiously looking forward to all the year long as this is the weekend of the All Nations Cup in Aachen, Germany. Arabian horse lovers from all over the world gathered at the Albert Vahle Halle to see the crème de la crème of Arabian horse breeding. Participating and being placed in Aachen is to many breeders a dream come true. This year, twenty more horses were entered compared to last year. Ten judges were asked to judge this year’s All Nations Cup. Mrs. Cecilia Bourghardt from Sweden, Mrs. Annette Dixon from Great Britain, Mrs. Deidre Hyde from United Arab Emirates, Mrs. Marianne Tengstedt from Denmark, Dr. Gianmarco Aragno from Italy, Mr. Cedes Bakker from The Netherlands, Mr. Scott Benjamin from Canada, Mr. Holger Ismer from Germany, Mr. Allan Preston from Australia and Mr. Luiz Rocco from Brasil. Prior to every class, a computer would randomly pick five judges to judge that particular class. For the championships, nine judges would take their vote. (Scott Benjamin did not judge the championships) The show started with the junior classes. Many high class yearling fillies were entered so the class was divided in class A and class B. Nine beautiful fillies made their entrance. With the first four scoring above the 90 points! Winner of the class with 92.10 points was the typy Brazilian bred Delights Divah RB (Ajman Moniscione x Honeys Delight RB) – bred by Adriana Esprindola De Moura and owned by Al Sayed Stud from Saudi Arabia. Second in this class with 92 points was the beautiful MM Esplendida (RFI Farid x MM Eluise) – bred and owned by Mario Matt from Austria.

The victory of the B section yearling fillies was won by the sister of Delight Diva RB. Also bred in Brazil by Adriana Esprindola De Moura, the brilliant Esperanzza al Ventur (FA El Shawan x Honeys Delight RB) took the lead with a total of 92.50 points! This filly was the Brazilian National champion in 2012 and continued her success by being named Gold Medal winner with the yearling fillies in Aachen for her current owner Athbah Stud from Saudi Arabia! This beautiful and flashy filly really took the lead by ease and I am sure we will hear much more about her in the future! Two beautiful fillies were competing for the second place. Both scoring 91 points, it was Najdiya al Zobair (Eden C x Najdah

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

A sad tragedy and we wish his wife Sofie Verhaegen and their children a lot of strength during this difficult period! The Arabian horse world lost a great horse man! As every year, the All Nations Cup Aachen has been a meeting point for Arabian horse lovers, the ideal opportunity to choose your breeding stallion for the next breeding season and of course to enjoy the great atmosphere and high quality horses that this show always provides. The highlight of the season and the ultimate try-out before the World championships in Paris.

Aachen ARABIAN FUTURITY EUROPE 28th of September 2013

This year, the All Nations Cup in Aachen was again the host for the Arabian Futurity Europe, held on Saturday after the normal classes. The Arabian Futurity Europe is an initiative for breeders of Arabian Horses in Europe. Founders and members of the Arabian Futurity Europe Group are James Swaenepoel (Belgium) and Karl-Heinz Stöckle (Germany) in cooperation with Gregor Aymar (Germany) and Ward Bemong (Belgium). Goal of the concept is to give a new impulse to Arabian Horse Breeding and Arabian Horse Events in Europe. With an excellent selection of Europe’s highest quality Breeding Stallions, they created the opportunity to buy one of these breedings in an open Auction and automatically enlist to compete with the horse, born out of this breeding, in a foal and yearling Futurity competition. A Futurity competition with an interesting amount of prize money for both the breeder of the foal as also for the stallion owner. It is also possible to participate with a foal which breeding has not been bought in the auction but nominated before birth and with a foal nominated after birth. In all cases, the sires of the foals need to be listed within the Arabian Futurity. A different amount of price money is given to each category. In the foal futurity, ten filly foals were entered. Winner of the class was Wantasia (Juwel OS x Wanila) – bred and owned by Husted Arabians from Denmark. Completing the elite top five were Maryse OS (Marajj x Shak Shakira) – bred and owned by Gestut Osterhof from Germany, Forelocks Veronique (Psytadel x Vekaisa F) – bred and owned by Forelocks Arabians from The Netherlands, Katelyn Joy (Psytadel x Siegerin NY) – bred and owned by Joy Horses from Belgium and WA Venuz Apal (Glorius Apal x ZA Zyna) – bred and owned by Caroline Hendryckx from Belgium. Another ten colts were entered for the foal futurity. Top Five was Shahbander al Muawd (Stival x V Exotic Enchantress) – bred and owned by Al Muawd Stud from Saudi Arabia, Inspired Asim (Ajman Moniscione x Natalia) – bred and owned by the Schick family from Germany, AJ Lafi (Ajman Moniscione x Lutfina AA) – bred and owned by Ajman Stud from the UAE, Buio Buio (Kahil al Shaqab x Pustinia el arab) – bred and owned by Elisabetha Calderai from Italy and Azerbeidjan (WH Justice x Euphoria) – bred and owned by the Swaenepoel family from Belgium. After the classes, both filly and colt foals competed for the final

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

Top five and championship ribbons. Unanimous champion foal was Shahbander al Muawd. Reserve Champion was Forelocks Veronique. The Bronze medal was given to Maryse OS, leaving a fourth place to Wantasia and a fifth place for Buio Buio. The yearlings counted eleven fillies. All of superb quality. Among the top five were Ajmaniah OS (Ajman Moniscione x AB Nastrapsy) – bred by Gestut Osterhof and owned by Ajman Stud from the UAE, Nourah Athbah (Aja Justified x Disputa FA) – bred and owned by Athbah stud from Saudi Arabia, Lady Ajmanya D (Ajman Moniscione x Khabala) – bred by Dion Arabians and owned by Al Baydaa Stud from Egypt, Latifa Athbah (Aja Justified x Ermina) – bred and owned by Athbah Stud from Saudi Arabia and MS Mary Lou (WH Justice x Bajah Badiya) – bred and owned by the Malorny-Scherle family from Germany. Another big class of yearling colts was up next. Young boys already full of themselves and at the start of their show career. Among the top five were: Primeval Kossack (Stival x Pribaltika) – bred and owned by the Kossack Stud from The Netherlands, Ricardo DD (Psytadel x Monogrammed Lady) – bred and owned by DD Arabians from Belgium, Medor Moniscione (Ajman Moniscione x Medea Moniscione) – bred and owned by Giancarlo Buzzi from Italy, ASE Faraaj (RFI Farid x ASE Bisiriya Hlayyil) – bred and owned by Arabian Stud Europe from The Netherlands and Nesj el Machiatto (Ajman Moniscione x Nesj el Khimala) – bred by Nesj Arabians and owned by Al Mohamadia Stud from Saudi Arabia. The finale of the futurity yearlings choose Ajmaniah OS as the champion. Reserve Champion was Ricardo DD, leaving the bronze medal for Primeval Kossack. At the fourth position was Latifa Athbah. The fifth position was tie between Lady Ajmanya D and ASE Faraaj. In the end the vote went to Lady Ajmanya. The Arabian Futurity is a good initiative. For me it would have been more fair to make separate classes for the foals born out of the auction breedings, foals who are nominated before birth and foals nominated after birth. For this, more breeders should participate at the show. The next breeding auction will be in February 2014. Stay tuned, nominate your stallion and unborn foal and participate in next year’s Arabian Futurity Europe! ❑

Leaders Of The Times

*Pscore And Haras JM by Kara Larson

Haras JM, located in the farmland of Monte Mor, Brazil, is comprised of some 350 Arabian horses on an incredible 500 acres of rolling pasture. The occasional lake breaks up the expanse, offering a distinctive environment that suits the Arabian horse well. This paradise of pastures is truly one of a kind; however, the contents of the farm— the horses—easily surpass the beauty of the location. As champion after champion is bred and raised in this Brazilian dream farm, owners José Alves Filho and wife Maisa Tucci Alves, have received the Association of Brazilian Breeders of Arabian Horses (ABCCA) Best Breeder and Exhibitor award for nine consecutive years from 2004 to 2012. This success and recognition stems from José’s appreciation for and understanding of breeding beautiful and influential Arabian horses. In the stallions that Haras JM stands, there are roots in some of the leading sires of the breed. With bloodlines stemming from Bey Shah, Ali Jamaal, Padrons Psyche, and Marwan Al Shaqab, José and the breeding program of Haras JM offer individuals with unique potential, international appeal, and above all, undeniable quality.

beauty, he brings substance, size, and conformation in the babies he is producing. It is exciting to see him produce himself and better, in the generations we have seen so far.” As José looks forward to Brazilian Nationals and bringing *Pscore into the show ring once more, he shares, “He is a major contender for us and Haras JM. We are sure that he is going to do well.” Shown by Andy Sellman of Argent Farms, *Pscore will be in the running for National Champion Stallion. With a Scottsdale championship and U.S. National top ten in the 2012 show season, José is confident in the stallion’s show ring potential. Both inside and out of the show ring, *Pscore meshes the beauty and conformation of the Padrons Psyche line with a quality and disposition unique to only him. A show horse that is building his breeding success with every subsequent opportunity, José shares the excellent possibilities this stallion has to offer. “With *Pscore, breeding to the most important stallion in Brazil is not only a reality, but also a promise. I see great potential in what he has to offer the program of Haras JM and the Arabian breed as well.” n

Delving further into one of these important Arabian stallions that José wished to introduce into his breeding program brings up Padrons Psyche. In this venture to infuse some of his blood into the Haras JM stock, José stands *Pscore (Padrons Psyche x Bey Shahs Lady). On this exceptional 10-year-old stallion, José offers, “*Pscore is producing very fine, beautiful colts and fillies all across Brazil and South America. Alongside this José Alves Filho and wife Maisa Tucci Alves.

In Memoriam

Patricia Lynn Barrick (1962-2013)

Patricia “Pat” Lynn Barrick was born August 29, 1962, in Hutchinson, Minn. She was the daughter of LeRoy and Ruth (Sitz) Barrick. She received her education in Hutchinson and was a graduate of Hutchinson High School Class of 1980. She then furthered her education at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, where she received her business administration AA degree and later attended Crown College where she received her bachelor’s degree. An accomplished equestrian as a teen, Pat competed at both Canadian and U.S. National Arabian Horse Championships, bringing home many top ten awards and a Canadian National championship. As a young person, she participated in McLeod County 4-H and also competed at the state level. Pat and her children were involved in everything 4-H in the Rice County clubs, taking flowers from Pat’s beautiful gardens, her quilting and needle work, and along with the horses and sheep, even the barn kittens made it to the county fair. A common weekend activity for the family was riding in local WSCA competitions. Pat was always willing to share her knowledge and expertise about horses with her young nieces and cousins. When someone had a question, the reply was, “Ask Pat, she will know the answer.” Blessed with two children, KayCee and Zane, she had a passion for family and fun. Pat was very sports minded; in addition to cheering on the kids and their activities, she was also an avid softball player, and spent time with family in Colorado and Germany snow skiing. Pat built strong relationships and friendships over the years, and as she endured 19 plus years of battling a rare form of cancer through countless surgeries, radiation, and chemo, she always had a positive and upbeat attitude. Pat passed away Saturday, July 27, 2013, at Birchwood House in Hutchinson, Minn. at the age of 50 years.

Lillian Mantei ~ Member of the Arabian Horse Assoc. since 1965

Lillian on the occasion of her 90th birthday.

Lillian May Mantei formerly of Estevan, Saskatchewan passed away October 5, 2013 at the age of 92 years. Lillian’s love of horses stemmed from the “pit ponies” used in her dad’s underground coal mine, M&C, and the field draft teams used to help her family make a livelihood.   One of Canada’s premier breeding farms, Diamond M Arabians, bred quality Arabian horses under the guidance of Lillian and Bill Mantei. In 1962 they purchased their first Arabian and for 33 years, bred, raised, exhibited and marketed beautiful horses. The majority of those magical breeding years were devoted to Straight Egyptian Arabians. They retired in 1995 with much pride in the Shamruk++ and *Soufian crosses that dominated their program and with immense gratitude for all the wonderful people that became part of their “Horse Family.”   Bill passed in 2006. A truly amazing celebration of Lil’s life was held in Estevan on Oct.12th to pay tribute to Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Godmother, Sister, Aunt, Friend and Enthusiastic Fan of the Arabian horse. We know “Our Heavenly Angel Lillian” was met at the Pearly Gates by Bill and so many of her favorite horses.  Lillian at the gates of Diamond M Ranch with the Shamruk++ daughter, Egyptian Belle, who sold at the Gleannloch Farms Legacy Sale in 1984.

In Memoriam Crown Musc+ (1981-2013)

The original foundation stallion for Eleanor’s Arabians, Crown Musc, a son of *Muscat out of the Silver Baron daughter, Crown Juel, has passed on to greener pastures. Bred by Dr. H.F. Kale, the importer of Crown Musc’s famous Russianbred sire, *Muscat, the chestnut stallion was a splendid example of the finest of the noted Kale Arabian breeding program. His dam was a daughter of the elegant, 1974 Canadian National Champion Mare, Jewel Drift; she a daughter of *Silver Drift out of the great U.S. and Canadian National Champion Mare, *Dornaba. Crown Musc arrived at Eleanor’s Arabians as a young horse and was shown by Eleanor and her trainer, Rod Matthiesen for over ten years, first in halter as a four-year-old and then in reining and western pleasure, both open and amateur. Crown Musc accumulated top five awards at Region 10 and Region 11, as well as championship and reserve championship ribbons at many Midwestern Arabian horse shows. “Crown Musc was a very kind horse; easy to train,” says Rod. “He was one of Eleanor’s first major, personal show horses. He packed her around for years and he really enjoyed his job.” “He was always one of my ‘good ‘ole boys,’” Eleanor says. “He came to our barn when it was brand new and he was a young and talented horse. He is a large part of the reason for Eleanor’s Arabians as well as my breeding and reining program. He was the yardstick by which I measured my breeding horses for twenty years regarding ability, quality, temperament and trainability. He set the standard.” Crown Musc’s initial foal crop arrived at Eleanor’s in 1986. The first three born were all chestnut mares and the third to be foaled, Fire Musc (Honey Fire, by Fire Chief ), was a superstar. A formidable competitor from 1989 through 1997, Fire Musc was a U.S. Reserve National Champion Reining Futurity/Maturity horse, won two reining top tens at the Youth Nationals and a Canadian National Top Ten in reining AOTR. Fire Musc was the dam of 12 foals, four of them multi-champions and one of them, Sheza Fire-Cracker, a Reserve National Champion Futurity Reiner. The sire of 106 registered get, Crown Musc has produced ten national winners and 25 Class A champions, reserves and regional winners. In addition to Fire Musc, his national winners include: Musc-U Ask, Norsks Muscamigo, Jewel Salona, Grand Casino, River Of Dreams, Miss Alley Cat, CMS It Will Be Me, CMS Kat Man, and CMS Little Sierra. All three of the reining and western trainers Eleanor Hamilton engages, expressed great respect for Crown Musc as well as their personal sadness at his passing. “We are all shocked and very sad,” said Gary Ferguson. “Crown Musc has meant a great deal to Eleanor’s Arabian Farm, first as a show horse and later as a stallion. Thankfully, we know his legacy will continue through his sons and daughters.” “We have had the privilege of starting and showing many of the Crown Musc offspring,” said Pam and Hoyt Rose. “Every single one was talented and trainable.” “My daughter Bree works for us,” said Rod, “and we both found that several times the last few days we were talking about him with lumps in our throats. You think that horses like him will live forever.” Rod paused a moment and sighed. “If you scratched his upper lip he would stick his tongue out to have it scratched … he was a character … we’re really going to miss him.” Crown Musc’s stall, where he has been holding court for 28 years, will remain empty, a fitting tribute to a show horse, a sire, an inspiration and a friend. n Volume 44, No. 6 | 163

November 9th was a rather cold Saturday morning in Rogers, Minnesota. The staff at Eleanor’s Arabians had been preparing for their big Open Barn for months. Even the inside of the barns and some of the fences were painted or varnished for the occasion. The day began busily, with more than a few visitors showing up well before the official starting time of 11 am. By noon, the crowd had swelled to well over 300 visitors and they filled the stabling areas and the entrance way, as well as the two white tents that housed the fabulous lunch Eleanor Hamilton traditionally serves at her Open Barns. The first order of business was a warm and welcoming tour of the barn, visiting with friends, trainers and checking out the national winners and the youngsters just started in training, sired by Eleanor’s Arabian and Quarter Horse stallions. After the roast pig lunch, complete with all the trimmings, came a delightful seminar with trainers, Rod Matthiesen, Gary Ferguson and Pam and Hoyt Rose. Rod gave a reining demonstration on multi-national winner, CMS Little Sierra. The grand finale featured a well-received presentation of Hesa Zee+/ and Little Sorrel Peppy. top left: the line for the roast pig lunch grew longer and longer top right: Eleanor Hamilton was justifiably proud of her senior Arabian sire, 25-year-old Hesa Zee+/ bottom picture: at the end of the day the last of the happy crowd posed with Eleanor Hamilton and Hesa Zee+/ in front of the barn

The 2013

Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders

Fall Festival

An Arabian Futurity Built For The Breeder by KARA LARSON

14 • MN BREEDERS | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


As the annual Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders Fall Festival celebrated its 32nd go-around this year, it showcased premier stallions, a real sense of community among the exhibitors and barns, and as always, exciting auction classes. All members of the Minnesota Breeders worked hard to produce a successful and accommodating horse show. President Greg Brown shares a distinguishing aspect of the Arabian Futurity Program—one of the reasons for its longevity. “The favorite parts for me, and I think for most of the folks that come, are the auction and medallion classes. That’s why people invest a lot of money and three years later bring the horse to the show for the opportunity to get that money back. We offer the best stallions in the world for any Arabian breeder to breed to, and at an affordable price. Based on our experience, we focus on keeping the show fair, concise, and let the best horse win. From start to finish, we keep it fun, exciting, and worthwhile.” And for Greg, one of the main differentiators of the MAHB Fall Festival versus other futurities is in the way we present the auction and medallion classes. “We make it a big deal to bring back the best horses for our finals and

then let the horses determine the winner. “The excitement level was certainly there this year—we had a lot of people at the show. We joke all the time that our Auction Medallion Yearling Futurities are the most exciting 15 minutes in the Arabian show business. We bring the horses in, we stand them up; we don’t waste a lot of time in terms of picking our champion, so if you’re late for the class, you’re going to miss the class. Over the last few years in particular, people who are at the show know that and it’s very exciting.” A fresh addition to the show came in a 90-minute workshop put on by Shelia Varian, which she describes as, “a PowerPoint presentation called ‘The Varian Way’ that we put together with a large number of photos from the beginning of Varian Arabians in the late 50s up to present. It starts from the beginning of our history and it goes through many of the horses we’ve bred, some special mares, and the farm itself. I also tell stories as we go, and do a little bit of reading of things that I’ve written.” Shelia offers, “I think a lot of it shows that as you go along through life,

things appear and happen in ways you could never deem a possibility until they are right in front of you.” This particular presentation was very well attended; everybody stayed very interested and engaged with Sheila’s story. Aside from the actual classes and seminars, the Broodmare Elite and the Hall Of Fame presentations have continued the MAHB tradition of honoring Medallion Stallions and mares who have contributed greatly to the success of the futurity with their offspring at the Fall Festival. This year’s Hall Of Fame honorees were Eleanor Hamilton’s Crown Musc, by Muscat, and FS Ritz, sired by the Hall Of Fame’s charter member Padrons Psyche. Three mares were inducted into the Broodmare Elite: Tymeless Treasure, owned by Brian and Sandra Fueling, Promise V, owned by Lawrence Jerome and Indira Van Handel, and Donna Hentges’ Drama Qyeen.

Reflections Jeff Schall of Shada Inc. on the 2013 Fall Fest What an outstanding show the MN Breeders Fall Festival is! The show is a special blend of fair, fabulous, real, and fantastic. Any combination of these four descriptive terms in the following statement will do justice to this amazing program!

________ people showing ________ horses in a ________ futurity for ________ prize money! My favorite goes like this. Fabulous people showing fantastic horses in a fair futurity for real prize money! What is your best way to illustrate the MN Fall Festival given the four words and sentence

above? A lot like the show itself, you can’t go wrong. Have fun, be creative and enjoy the results!

We congratulate each and every competitor at this year’s show and offer our best wishes for success to all the progressive breeders for next year and beyond!

Lori Conway of Conway Arabians, High Point Breeder winner of the 2013 Fall Fest “Breeders are the focal point of the show. Besides the recognition of being announced repeatedly as the owner and/or breeder of all the horses that receive a ribbon, they are on live feed, so it is broadcast all over the world. The show is an opportunity to socialize with other breeders and

owners from all over the country and a chance to see many great horses at one show. The schedule

is laid back and all the activities keep you busy. I was told by many people that our hospitality was first rate and very much appreciated.

“Conway Arabians was privileged to be awarded the highest honor of the show, High Point

Breeder of the 2013 MN Fall Festival! The beautiful Brass Memorial Perpetual Trophy is sitting proudly on our mantle in our house and it is exciting to have our name listed on the plaque. “The most exciting for us is seeing horses that we bred, raised, trained and sold in the ring

and winning prizes! It is heartwarming to hear our name announced and we appreciate the

recognition. The prize money awarded is an added bonus as well. We love the auction too. The

Medallion Stallion group works well together and we are all friends working hard to have a good show, and a great auction!”

As discussions continue on the subject of improving horse shows by making them unique, fun, and progressive, Greg Brown shares insight into what the Fall Festival does in terms of the big Arabian picture. “We think that particularly on the halter side of the industry, the Arabian futurities are the way to go. Breeding to a halter stallion is a huge investment and futurities like ours, breeding to a Medallion Stallion, offer the opportunity to get

some of that investment back, or a sizable amount of the investment back. At the Fall Festival, we have a lot of experience, we know what works, and we know what brings people back to our show.” The Fall Festival is more than a halter show, however, and great strides have been made to increase involvement on the performance side with new incentives. Starting next Volume 44, No. 6 | MN BREEDERS •

year, Greg offers, “Any auction foal that comes back and competes in performance classes and finishes in the top five will be awarded a 25% override on their prize money. So, not only do we encourage you to bring your horse back in the halter classes, but there is now a chance for a bigger return on the performance side. This is in recognition to how big the performance classes are getting at the Fall Festival and how much they are adding to participation as well as us realizing this change would offer additional opportunities at our show to extend the use and rewards available to auction offspring. We hope to encourage folks to buy auction breedings to stallions that may be perceived as performance oriented for the opportunity to come back and compete for an increased performance pot.” Ultimately, the MAHB Fall Festival’s goal is in furthering the Arabian horse with its fair and exciting classes, educational workshops, beautiful horses, and talented exhibitors. Adding one more intangible quality to the show’s list of attributes, Greg believes and shares, “It is the overall tone of the show—a sense of community—that we try to establish at the Fall Festival. We arrange the barns in such a way that people are able to congregate and converse. It has

20 • MN BREEDERS | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


worked out very well. By bringing people together—we feed everybody three times during the show—everyone there has a good time.” By promoting this sense of family and making it one of our focal points, we hope to make the Fall Festival an event no one wants to miss.” Breeder and owner of Conway Arabians, Lori Conway, offers her take on this social feel of the show, sharing, “It is a ‘positive, no nonsense, what’s best for the horse, what can we do for the people, and let’s get it done’ kind of an atmosphere. We work hard to get good judges and good people to fill all the key positions in making the show a success. It is fun and Conway Arabians is proud to be a part of it!” Greg closes, “Everybody had a good time—we wanted everyone to enjoy themselves at this show and feel comfortable, excited, and energized about where the breed and the Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders are going. I think that at the end of the day on Sunday, that was the message we were hearing. We ran a good show and everybody had a good time. We look very much forward to the 2014 show.”
