This time of year, it’s natural we’re all thinking about the first national show on the calendar, Youth Nationals. We’re conscious of how much fun it is for our young riders, how valuable learning to compete (to do your best and win and lose gracefully) is for them. We make sure that they have other activities too, so that no matter who they are and how well they do, they have the opportunity to make friends and go home with good memories that will last the rest of their lives. And of course, we applaud their horsemanship. And beyond the competition, it is important that we all stop and recognize— celebrate, really—how very life-changing our kids’ relationships with their horses is and the special bond that most of these young people have with their Arabian horses. I remember when I was a child. One of my most enduring memories has nothing to do with the show ring. It is of a foal that died very young. I was just a kid, but I loved that baby so much; whenever I could be with him, I was there, by his side. He was my pal. Horses sense our emotions. If they haven’t been treated in such a way that they are wary of humans, most of them sense who kids are, and they want to take care of them. Over and above the show ring, our Arabian horses teach their young people about life. They offer valuable lessons that forever enrich each child’s world. Not every horse and junior exhibitor will receive a ribbon in Albuquerque this year, but every horse deserves our gratitude.

Fazenda Floresta Introduces ...

FAZENDA FLOR ESTA | 17


Fazenda Floresta presents its Stallions and new Generation of Foals

Luciana Fasano, of Fazenda Floresta, near São Paulo, Brazil, has never been afraid to be innovative, and her Arabian operation is a standout example of how a fresh viewpoint can be valuable in the Arabian community. Although she understands the contributions of broodmares, Luciana’s consuming interest and special talent has been in selecting stallions, and her contribution to the breed is the “stallion station” she has founded. It is a collection of exceptional individuals on offer to discerning breeders, and in its few years of existence, it has taken off at electrifying speed. “The first thing I did was buy stallions that were proven in the show ring and had great pedigrees,” Luciana explains. Her sires earned their championships, supreme championships and reserve championships in North America, Europe and Brazil at such leading venues as the U.S. and Canadian Nationals, Scottsdale, the AHBA World Cup and The Egyptian Event. Her second step was to establish alliances with top breeders to ensure that the stallions had access to many of Brazil’s finest broodmares. From the foals these breedings produced, she was able evaluate her stallions’ potential. She made it a point to include a wide array of bloodlines on her roster, and she wanted to be sure that they all had the ability to pass on their own attributes. The goal has been not to design her own breeding program so much as to be an integral resource for the top establishments of the world. The result of her effort over the past three-and-a-half years has been the enthusiastic support of some of the country’s most significant breeders. “For example, AAS-Elishahh has sold 185 breedings in the last month and a half, and LLC Fasario just about 60 breedings over a period of 30 days,” Luciana reports. “And Al Hadiyah AA has sold about 40 in 30 to 40 days. For OFW Wan And Only, we have sold about 30 breedings to a new breeder who happened to see his picture on the internet.” While Eccentric Valentino has bred fewer mares, she strongly believes in his potential, especially with straight Egyptian mares. Already, the stallion has sired two of her best foals, one of whom, LF Eccentrica, is from the straight Egyptian mare, Sherazade JP. The 4-year-old stallion LLC Fasario, meanwhile, will be representing the farm in the show ring as well as standing at stud. “Fasario passes on an extreme attitude that probably comes from his Marwan Al Shaqab blood,” says Luciana, “as well as extreme advantages from his dam, RD Fabreanna. I believe a lot in him. He will be going to the U.S. Nationals this year.” And Vortex has not been widely available because he was being used especially by Dr. Nelson Moreira, whose mares in foal from Haras Céu Estrelado include Dulcinea BHF, Catherine UB, Celine K, RD Fabreanna, Lá Vida and Sovereign Almond JP. “Vortex is to me a stallion who is not just a good horse, but a great son of FA El Shawan,” says Luciana, “and that is very important to all of us in terms of the future. We will start seeing his foals in September 2014.” For a deeper appreciation of her program, she offers the words of two of Brazil’s most prominent breeders, Adriana and Alessandra Moura of Haras das Cascatas. Haras das Cascatas, home of the well-known Honey's Delight RB and Esperanca, has always been looking for different alternatives in the worldwide Arabian horse industry. “After extensive analysis, we found at Fazenda Floresta a group of stallions with a lot of quality and an unbeatable diversity of pedigrees,” they say. AAS-Elisahhh: “We found a very current stallion for new standards, with exceptional titles, and with great qualities such as a very delicate head, a very correct body, a lot of attitude and a great pedigree.” Al Hadiyah AA: “We look for what every breeder is looking for—an impeccable head, beautiful big eyes, and a feeling of ‘a horse from the desert.’ We chose him for two of our best mares.” Eccentric Valentino: “We believe Eccentric can become one of the most important successors of DA Valentino. He has a very important show record and an unimpeachable neck.” LLC Fasario: “Fasario has a very special and current pedigree, lots of attitude and a very special neck. He is the type of horse we admire and always look for to complement our breeding program.” Luciana, while recognizing the excellence of what her stallions have to offer, is grateful for her clients' faith at this early stage of her plan. “Those are people who really used my stallions without knowing what is coming, because my horses were new blood in Brazil.” Not only are well-known breeders a part of the Fazenda Floresta program, but new owners are signing on as well, attracted by Luciana’s stallions and her success. With those promising endorsements, Fazenda Floresta is moving on into the future. An embryo transfer service is being organized, pastures are being prepared to host client mares, and an inseminating facility for import and export is being established. As always, friends and clients are attracted to Luciana’s near-legendary hospitality. An invitation to the farm is a guaranteed festive evening of indulgent food and camaraderie. But when it comes to Arabian horses, she emphasizes, Fazenda Floresta is all about high standards. “Our focus is on quality, not quantity.” We invite every American attending the Brazilian Nationals to come and visit Fazenda Floresta for our special party and open house on November 23, 2014, at 3p.m., right after the Brazilian Nationals. Please RSVP to Arabian Horse Times.

The Canadian Nationals All Things Considered by ANNE STRATTON

Every horse show has its own personality, and over the years since its inception in 1959, the Canadian Nationals has had many. When it was in Calgary, where it began, there was the heady intoxication of the Rocky Mountains and the city’s diverse equine ambience. In Toronto, the Nationals was a bit dressy and grand, as befitted a show in the historic Exhibition Place, next to the shore of Lake Ontario. Vancouver, too, had its attractions; its laid-back, west coast vibe belied the excellence of its competition. But those were in the days when more owners watched trainers ride their horses than is true today; the proximity to great shopping and top-class restaurants—activities that filled the time

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

when the horses weren’t in the ring—was more important. Then came the days when the event didn’t rotate between east and west, when it was held in the quintessentially midCanada cities of Edmonton and Regina. For the past three years, and now scheduled for the next three as well, the Canadian Nationals’ home has been the Keystone Centre in Brandon, Manitoba, three hours west of Winnipeg. This year it will take place August 11-16, and more than ever, its persona is that of a horseman’s horse show. The competition remains stiff; a Canadian National title is a valuable addition to any horse’s resume,


so trailers and big rigs roll in from as far away as Florida and California. But the focus now is not the destination. It is solely on the horse show, the classes in the ring, the 750 to 800 horses vying for ribbons and trophies in 187 classes. “Our numbers have increased every year in terms of horse participation,” says Allan Ehrlick, Vice Chairman of the Canadian National Show Commission. “People are comfortable there. Brandon has about 45,000 people and it has a tremendous amount of amenities for a small town—a ton of restaurants, lumber outlets that farms need for their stall decorations, a lot of fast food, plenty of hotel space, everything needed for a show. There’s no acclimatization (we’re not in the mountains), you can drink the water and breathe the air. You can go to dinner anywhere and walk up and down the streets without being scared, which is important. It’s an exceptional comfort zone. And nowhere in Brandon is more than 10 minutes from everywhere else. It’s very accessible. It has the amenities to allow you to show your horse as well as possible.” Keystone Centre’s attitude also is refreshing. “There is a sign in every building that says ‘Agriculture First,’” Ehrlick notes. “Right off the bat, you know that they’re happy to deal with your product because that’s what they’re designed for. And the staff that they have there is absolutely fabulous. They’re very accommodating, very talented. When you need something done in a hurry, they do it and their attitude is very, very positive.” It doesn’t hurt that Ring 2 is a dedicated horse arena, designed and maintained for horse performances all year, not constantly changed to accommodate everything from rock bands to motocross. Although every show evolves, the Canadian Nationals has been so well organized that this year the “major” changes relate only to refining the competition for two of the show’s divisions. The Sport Horse In-Hand classes have been divided into dressage type and hunter type, reflecting the growing development of that segment of the breed, and the working western classes will all take place during the opening three days of the show, saving that contingent the expense of remaining throughout the week.

Volume 45, No. 2 | 33


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


Beyond taking care of their constituents, show management concentrates on the mission it has pursued for 55 years. “Our focus is just generally to maintain the high standards we’re known for,” Ehrlick says. One of the reasons they do so well at it, those who have been coming for years point out, is that the Commission itself has been together for 20 years. They know the history, the challenges, the changes, and as importantly, each other. “We’ve probably been to 50 national shows at least,” Ehrlick says. “Gerald [McDonald, Chairman] has been here for 19 years, I’ve been here for 20, and Tony [Caughell] 18. We’re a pretty close-knit group. We’re totally hands-on; we get down and dirty every day. I think that’s one of the things that’s made us so successful. Exhibitors see how hard we work, and it’s a pretty happy group.” It is, he says, in support of another happy group: families. “We’re a family show, the only national show where all the classes are featured—youth, amateur, professional, main ring, sport horses. The whole family can show.” n

My Poland Diary: The Arabian Insights Tour by LARA AMES

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


If you are in the Arabian horse community for very long, the chances are you will hear people talk about how much they enjoy meeting and making friends with other Arabian owners and breeders. I have been out of the country in the past to see horses (the Brazilian Nationals and the Salon du Cheval come to mind) and can testify to the special bond of Arabian horse people not just here, but worldwide. And as many of us have, I’d heard the stories of Poland—of the magic of its horses and its people, and how as engaging as the Poles are when they travel here, they are even more amazing in their own country. So, in June, when my parents and I had the opportunity to travel to Poland for the first time, we signed on with enthusiasm. We weren’t sure what the trip would be like. We have appreciated Polish horses for years, but we haven’t been “pure Polish” breeders. We were prepared to be impressed, but we weren’t born yesterday; it would have to be pretty special to rock our world. I don’t know how else to say this: it rocked our world. Here is my diary of my first experience in Poland. I hope that every Arabian breeder, regardless of the bloodlines in their program, is able to visit the stud farms of Poland and, as my mom and dad and I did, create their own wonderful memories.

Volume 45, No. 2 | 41


The idea of going to Poland began for us last spring, when Gene LaCroix was visiting at Cedar Ridge. What a golden opportunity it was to do it with Gene! After all, he had been with his father back in 1962 when they selected *Bask—who could ask for more history? It got even better when Scott Benjamin (who knows more about Polish horses and their pedigrees than just about anyone except the stud directors and breeding managers) and Anette Mattsson, also extremely knowledgeable about Poland and its breeding program, got involved. So, on Sunday, June 22, around 2:30 in the afternoon, we boarded a plane in Minneapolis. By the time we arrived in Amsterdam eight hours later (about 6 on Monday morning, with the time change), we were talking nonstop, remembering all the great times we’d had together. It was perfect preparation. We didn’t know it then, but we had embarked on what would be a very special chapter in the Ames family record books.

Monday, June 23rd

Our connecting flight into Warsaw landed at about 10:30 a.m., and we met the group we would be traveling with at the airport. In addition to Gene and Anette (Scott arrived the next day), we were joined by Sophie Dia Pegrum and Jen Miller of Horsefly Films, who would photograph and take video of the trip, and several others. Most were from the U.S., but we also had a representative of France and two from Namibia. It was a great group, and one we would appreciate more and more as our journey unfolded. Some of us had been in the Arabian breed forever; some were new. Some competed in the show ring, while some had other interests (our new friends from Namibia, Henning and Barbara de Toit, are endurance riders). Some bred horses, and others were considering starting their own programs. We had every viewpoint and background you can imagine. Our mind on our business, we skipped freshening up and boarded a large, comfortable bus for the two-hour trip to the Russian border, where the oldest of the Polish stud farms, Janów Podlaski, is located. Our destination, though, was our hotel, the Pensjonat Zaborek, about 30 minutes’ drive from the stud farm. This is an outstanding “bed and breakfast” that I would recommend to anyone visiting Janów. I have to admit that when our bus turned into the narrow road that leads to Zaborek, I wondered how we would ever fit through, but we did, and as we approached the main cottage, we saw a beautiful pond and gardens dotted with charming buildings. Some of them dated to the 19th century, and it was easy to 42 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


appreciate the character of the architecture and the careful, true-to-the-culture decor of the rooms.

as, well, a Percheron (his other equine love, in addition to Arabians) and a personality to match.

We were greeted on our arrival by Zaborek’s owners, Lucyna and Arek Okon, who helped us all get settled. Then we met for our first meal together, and you could just tell that it was going to be a fun group to travel with. I was pretty tired by then, having been up for more than 24 hours, so I called it an early evening, but the rest of the group toured the grounds and learned the history of the plantation.

After breakfast, we boarded the bus to Janów. I had always seen pictures of the farm and had a vision in my mind of what it would be—the historic old clock tower, the atmospheric forests, the quiet pastures. And it was exactly what I thought and more. I will never forget coming through the gates and seeing, at the end of the lane, the peaceful lawn and the old white tower.

Tuesday, June 24th

That first day, we toured the farm’s barns and viewed the horses. We even got a carriage ride to the river that was on the Russian border. The horses were incredible, no question, but what was most amazing to me was how the staff moves the horses to and from the pastures each day. All of the horses are very well disciplined and they know the routine,

I woke up to a familiar sound that I had heard as a child— my dad running up the stairs, yelling for me to wake up. What he forgot was there were 12 other people in the rooms upstairs! My dad is one-of-a-kind. He has a heart as big

Volume 45, No. 2 | 43


even the foals. At the command of grooms who ride bicycles, when they come out of their barns, they head as a group down the road to their pasture, through its open gate, and out into an expansive landscape of acres and acres. At the end of the day, they reverse the action—and I don’t mean they are trotting docilely. They are galloping in a large group, dust rising all around them if it’s a dry day. The mares go right to their stalls or, if they are in one of the open-room barns, to the spot on the wall where each is tethered each night. It’s very impressive, and no matter how often you see photos and videos of it, it is still amazing in real life. We saw the stallions too, more than 20 of them, the best-known being Piaff, Dostatok, Alert, Ararat, Poganin, Equifor and Pegasus. Sadly, the lovely Album (Europejczyk x Alejka, by Palas), passed away just five days after our visit. Words really can’t express the emotions I had at Janów. There was something about the farm’s atmosphere—you hear it described as “historic,” but historic in person is something else. It is almost like you can feel the generations of horses and people who have lived there, lived where the most important business—the only focus, really—is raising fine horses now and for the future. That is pretty heady stuff.

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

That evening, we began a practice which added a lot to our trip. After dinner, we all gathered to discuss what we had seen that day and what it meant. That first night, Gene made a presentation on form to function as it relates to horses. I have seen him do this before, but every time I learn something new. By the time we headed for bed, I knew that we had started what was not only a very enjoyable vacation, but also a highintensity study of breeding Arabian horses.

Wednesday, June 25th

Horse racing is very important in Poland. Traditionally, it has been used to prove the horses’ soundness and athletic ability more than to demonstrate speed, but it goes without saying that every stud farm and owner likes to win races too! This morning, anyone who wanted to view race training headed to Janów at 6:00 a.m. to see the horses in training gallop on the farm’s track. We also met Janów Podlaski Director Marek Trela, who had not been there the day before. He put on a presentation at the stallion barn, and then led us through the barns with the mares and foals. Finally, we watched a presentation of the mares with their offspring by family. You could see the bloodlines’ characteristics through generations, as well as the variations which occurred when the mares were bred to different


stallions. As Janów is home to about 100 mares, you can imagine the care and thought that goes into breeding them. We then returned to Janow for our evening forum. When we arrived, we were greeted by local musicians playing Polish melodies. You can guess the emotions that elicited: we could almost feel Poland’s history and heritage in its music. Then we convened for a presentation on the history of Janów and how they go about their breeding program, which was fascinating. Scott gave us background on Janów’s famed “P” line of mares, which we would see in use also at Białka. The “P” line was founded by the mare Piewica and now is seen especially in branches through Pentoda and Pilarka. He used this discussion to make a point which I think probably resonated with all of us, and that was that in breeding, there are not “right” or “wrong” decisions. Breeding is about philosophies, ideas and methods of approach, and he illustrated the point with the mare Pipi, who produced countless international champions—only three of them by the same sire!

Thursday, June 26th

This morning, we departed for Białka Stud. As our bus pulled in, I was conscious that here was another look at history, newer than and perhaps not as intimate as at

Janów, but just as valid. You can feel the farm’s character in its beautiful barns, and although it has hosted Arabians for only about 30 of its 84 years, its traditional equine importance is very evident. We were greeted by Director Marian Pacewski and Breeding Manager Renata Kurzynska, and taken to a tented area from which we would look at horses (thank heavens, because we had a major rain storm that afternoon!). We began with a presentation of Biaka’s stallions, Pesal, HK Krystall and Amanito, and then a few of their sale horses were brought out. That is when the morning became especially memorable for the Ames family. We saw a mare that touched us as perhaps no other horse had. When the handlers brought out Perfirka, an 11-year-old grey, all three of us rose out of our seats to take a closer look. By Gazal Al Shaqab and out of the Ernal daughter Perforacja (the “P” line), she was everything we would want a broodmare to be. We later learned that she is Lot 2 in the Pride of Poland Sale in August, so I guess we didn’t exactly find a diamond in the rough! After the presentation, we enjoyed more Polish hospitality as the stud farm hosted a special barbeque for us. The weather may not have been cooperating, but the food was fantastic and they made us feel so welcome. Following lunch, we returned to our equine

Volume 45, No. 2 | 45


studies, as we were introduced to the Arabian horse families that make up the stud’s program, and then we toured the barns. That evening at our forum, we enjoyed a lively discussion of the bloodlines we had seen and how they are bred at Białka.

Friday, June 27th

The next morning, we departed our hotel (the Zamojski, in Zamość) at around 10 and returned to Białka. To everyone’s delight, the sun had come out, and upon arrival, we took a long stroll among their yearling and 2-year-old colts. Once again, we got to see the process of the horses going out to pasture, and once again, it was impressive. We all got to pick a favorite or two out of the group, and then we all broke for lunch at a charming restaurant called Karczma Stajnia. I loved its character and atmosphere, and the food was delicious. We then made one last trip back to the farm, where we could select a horse or two that we wanted to see turned loose. Of course, my family had to see Perfirka. That night, our forum was extra special, as that was when we started seeing the Horsefly films and photos of the horses on our trip so far, and that added to our education. Scott directed our discussions, dissecting the various bloodlines and helping us identify what we thought worked and 46 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

didn’t work among them. Because we had several different interests in our group, it was really fascinating to hear everyone’s opinions.

Saturday, June 28th

In the late morning, we departed for Warsaw, where we were scheduled to attend the races at Służewiec Racetrack in the afternoon. What made this even more fun was that one member of our group, Helene Zaleski, of Lutetia Arabians in France, had a horse running in the fourth race. The track is beautiful, and located right in Warsaw. We went directly to the backside, where Helene’s trainer, Bogdan Strójwas, who also trains for Janów Podlaski, gave us a tour. Then, with first post coming up, we headed to the clubhouse. Before the fourth race, we all placed our bets on Helene’s horse, Wameria, a mare by Amer d.b.—and did she reward us! She won the featured event that day, so we not only got a return on our betting investment, but also were invited to enjoy a special champagne toast. After the races, we made our way to our hotel, the Polonia, which is located in one of the oldest buildings in Warsaw. That night, we walked around Old Town and had dinner at a great little café.


Sunday, June 29th

After all the action of the past few days, I think we were all ready for some down time. In the morning, everyone took the opportunity to sightsee at their own pace. Then, around 1 p.m., we boarded our bus for the drive to Pińczów, where we booked in for three nights at Hotel Nad Stara Nida. There we were allowed a unique glimpse of Polish life, as when we arrived, a wedding celebration was going strong— on its third day! They were having a grand time. This evening, we again watched film of some of our favorite horses that we had seen, and Scott and Anette built on the experience by sharing footage of some of the horses’ ancestors. We could really see how the style of horses in the Polish breeding program had evolved over the years.

Monday, June 30th

Bright and early, we headed to Michałów Stud. Already, we were sensing that our great adventure was nearing its end, but we were so fascinated by what we were seeing that even a bad turn in the weather couldn’t dim our enthusiasm. Luckily, Michałów had a covered arena in which to present their horses, so we were comfortable as we viewed their stallions and show horses. Director Jerzy Białobok and his wife, Urszula, who is the farm’s breeding manager, offered insight into their program, which has produced an amazing group of horses. Among the many stallions led out were Ganges, Ekstern, Wachlarz, Eldon, Grafik, Gaspar, Eryks, El Omari, Empire, Kabsztad, Equator, and of course, a face we knew from back home, Vitorio TO, who is on lease to Michałów.

Volume 45, No. 2 | 47


After lunch on the farm, we walked the barns—and we could see why this farm has always been known for its outstanding broodmares. One after another had her own unique look. In the evening, we retired to the farm’s offices for our forum, and each of us selected a few horses that we would like to see again. Again, we followed the ancestry of each horse, studied their conformation and discussed the various breeding crosses. Scott offered us background on the leading mare lines at Michałów, the “E,” “W” and “Z” families. As a special treat to end the evening, we enjoyed a vodka toast with the director and his staff. Na zdrowie!

Tuesday, July 1st

It was hard to believe that our last day was upon us. We started it with a walk to Michałów’s mare and foal barn, where we saw a presentation of the farm’s mares and foals. I found myself getting caught up and looking ahead to the mares that were waiting in the paddock to be presented. Again, I couldn’t help noticing that each mare and foal had a unique look. That day there must have been about 30 that I wanted to take home. Then we headed back to the show barn, where Helene Zaleski presented for us her collection of horses, a wonderful group of mares that she can be very proud of. And after lunch we enjoyed a wagon ride to the Michałów

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

stud barn, where we saw the farm’s young colts. This was the closing to a trip that I will never forget. What I learned most from our nine days in Poland was the value of patience. As Scott emphasized for us, the Polish horsemen breed one generation at a time, but with an eye toward the future. Each generation adds something, but you don’t expect to get “the whole package” in each generation. By spending so much time on the farms and seeing so many horses, we could see the structure of their program. The mature horses are the best ones, the ones they have selected to keep and use; in the yearlings to 3-year-olds, we saw the ones that are just entering the testing phase, where the Polish horsemen will evaluate them to see what they have. Obviously, just as we saw superstars in the making, we also saw youngsters that may not develop into long-term residents of the studs, and that is where our understanding of the Polish Arabian and how it is created grew by leaps and bounds. In my opinion, the principles we saw in action there would be valuable in any Arabian breeding program. I would like to give a special thanks to Anette Mattsson, Scott Benjamin and Gene LaCroix, for providing us all with an unbelievable experience. And thank you, Anette and Horsefly Films, for sharing such great photos. For readers that would like to view the videos and photos from our trip, please visit the Arabian Horse Times website. n

A horse show unique in its high energy, great competition, and creative theme, the Iowa Gold Star Futurity looks to wow again in 2014. For Iowa Arabian Horse Association President Jessica Maldonado, “The cornerstone of the Gold Star weekend has always been fun and entertainment, mixed with the opportunity to win prize money. Having a different “theme” every year is a unique aspect of the Gold Star show, and it is always fun to watch people embrace it every year. Of course the level of competition is always high, and it is often a barn’s last stop on the way to Nationals so we get a preview of what is to come.” 6 • GOLD STAR | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


eyond fun, the theme sets this show apart from the crowd. “People continue to like having an annual “theme” and love the fun atmosphere of the Gold Star show. It is amazing how things as simple as silly costumes and decorations can brighten an arena or someone’s mood!” As the 2014 theme is “Under the Big Top,” the fairgrounds are going to be dressed up in circusthemed decorations. Additionally, the show has also partnered with the local Shrine Chapter, Za Ga Zig, who puts on an annual circus fundraiser in Des Moines each spring. Anticipating the promise of this arrangement, Maldonado shares, “Not only are they going to be providing some fun entertainment, but it is a great charitable cause that we are excited to be a part of.” Maldonado delves deeper into this novel aspect of the 2014 show. “Shriners International is an organization that is best known for its colorful parades, its distinctive red fez, and its official philanthropy, the Shriners Hospitals for Children, which is often called “the heart and soul of the Shrine.” The Shriner’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for children, which we think has a wonderful tie to the Arabian horse. Members and volunteers with the Shrine will be with us throughout the show providing entertainment and some fun and unique fundraising opportunities that directly benefit children. Our local Shrine chapter puts on an annual circus each spring, so it is a perfect fit with this year’s theme. We are very excited to have such a worthy charitable organization to partner with!” Circling back to the entertainment side of the Gold Star, it is a show that has certainly built up a reputation as an all-around event to attend Volume 45, No. 2 | GOLD STAR •

and never lacking in excitement and fresh ideas. As they continually aim to grow support and build from prior years, Maldonado and the Gold Star show committee pride itself on giving the people what they want. “We had great feedback last year about returning the Stallion Auction back to the Fairgrounds, so we are once again having the Stallion auction and party in the Pavilion on site. This increased attendance last year and prompted more people to participate in the bidding.” Maldonado adds, “One change from last year’s feedback is the host hotel. Instead of staying at a downtown hotel again, we have switched hotels to Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino. Not only is this closer to the Fairgrounds, but it has ample free parking and provides round the clock entertainment!” So, only one question remains. Why should everyone make their way to Des Moines for the Iowa Gold Star this year? Maldonado responds: “Very simple, it is some of the most fun you will have at a horse show! The laid-back, yet competitive show has become a necessity on the show schedule for many people. In addition, we always hire national judges for multiple divisions, so there is a chance for people to get their horses in front of Nationals judges right before October. We also strive to be customer-friendly and try to accommodate all reasonable requests so people leave with a good experience. And last, but definitely not least, is the great lineup of stallions we have in the stallion auction. Multiple yearling auction class winners from last year’s show went on to win at U.S. Nationals, so it’s proof that national champions are made through the Gold Star Futurity! We cannot thank the generous stallion owners and breeders enough for their participation in the Gold Star.” ★ 8 • GOLD STAR | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Leaders Of The Times: July Calendar Feature

by Kara Larson

When John O’Hara calls TA Mozart (*Kordelas x *Marieta) the best purebred stallion he has ever ridden, it prompts one to read into the horse a bit further. Taking home monumental wins in the 2011 and 2012 Scottsdale Arabian Open Reining Futurity (the only horse to do this 2 years in a row) and also being the 2012 U.S. National Champion in Junior Reining, Mozart has proven what he is capable of in a big way. On this impressive start in the show ring, trainer O’Hara shares, “For me, Mozart’s biggest show ring accomplishment was winning the Scottsdale Reining Futurity as a 4- and 5-year-old. After winning as a 4-year-old, there was a lot of pressure to come back with him and do it again. But as I always tell 70 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

my customers and myself, win or lose, I am walking in on a great horse and no matter what happens in the pen, I will be walking out on the same great horse.” However, as it turned out, O’Hara and Mozart performed through the pressure and expectations. These two championships are wins that O’Hara attributes to the horse’s quality and excellent temperament. “Mozart’s show ring success was always consistent—as in consistently GREAT! Every time I walked into the pen, I knew exactly what I had and what he was going to give me. This is a huge bond of trust we had together and I trusted him on every maneuver. He is such an honest


guy (something I can say because I have been on many less-than-trustworthy horses and it can be an unsettling feeling). I wish I had 10 Mozarts to ride every day, but the truth of the matter is, he absolutely is one of a kind.” Beyond these considerable wins, the 2007 stallion also looks to continue to put successful foals on the ground. Cedar Ridge Breeding Manager, Mike Brennan, shares what he is seeing in the TA Mozart foals. “They all seem to have his easygoing and friendly personality. They love to be around people and love all the attention you can give them, just like their dad! A fair amount of these offspring also have his markings. Of course, I am referring to all that “chrome.” They like to be noticed. His foals resemble a “working” type of an individual.” With nearly 50 mares covered in the 2013 and 2014 breeding seasons, owner Dick Ames of Cedar Ridge Arabians hopes to utilize Mozart’s many attributes to produce some superb Arabian reining horses. Ames says, “Mozart is very quiet; he responds well to training, and he has the mannerisms we like to see in a reining horse. As everyone knows, a reining horse has to be a very athletic horse and has to have a mind that can stand up to pressure—and Mozart is a horse that has all of those qualities. We’re hoping that it all passes on to his offspring; only time will tell.” Considering the big picture, Brennan adds, “In terms of his contribution to the reining division for the Arabian breed, I see in Mozart’s offspring what Mr. Ames is and

TA Mozart (*Kordelas x *Marieta) and Dick Ames.

has been working toward in his breeding program. He wants to create a “new” type of working/reining Arabian horse. A horse that is fuller bodied, athletic, and a horse that can compete and win at the open reining classes. All the while, he wants keep from losing what we love about our breed—the pretty head and neck. Thus far, I see that in these foals from TA Mozart. Mr. Ames has a dream, and TA Mozart, along with myself, are proud to be part of this adventure! Right now I see this becoming a reality.”   O’Hara, too, agrees that Mozart is producing some excellent reining prospects as his temperament and physical attributes translate into the next generation of Arabian reiners. “Mozart is a professional and the consummate gentlemen in and out of the show pen— traits I believe he is going to pass. Not only would his temperament be ideal, but also the physical attributes are just going to be another plus. I have seen the large bone and correct conformation he is putting on his babies and I never expected anything less from him. They say the proof is in the pudding and his offspring will be making a name for Mozart as a sire very soon.” n Volume 45, No. 2 | 71

The Southeast—

HowIt AllBegan by ANNE STRATTON

When you think of the Arabian horse community in the southeastern United States today, you automatically think “Region 12,” home of the Spotlight Futurity, and perhaps the state fairgrounds facility at Perry, Ga., which gets such high marks from horsemen that it is wellknown nationwide. And if you know anything about AHA’s regional system, you know that Region 12 is the largest one in the country geographically. That, however, is far from the whole story. “The Southeast” has played a noteworthy role in the history of the Arabian horse in North America for more than 50 years, and its origins date back even further. For instance, one of the earliest Arabian national shows was held in Nashville in 1933. *Raffles won the three-gaited national championship (classes more or less followed Saddlebred tradition at the time), while his dam, *Rifala, was named National Champion Mare. And in the 1930s, General J.M. Dickinson, of Travelers Rest Arabian Stud, in Franklin, Tenn., became one of the early importers of horses from Poland. Dickinson was just winding down in the 1950s, and Travelers Rest became a resource for many southeastern horsemen who were starting out in the breed. Over the second half of the 20th century, Arabians would become very popular in the United States, and Region 12, as the area became known, was part of that. It would be easy just to list the people and horses who make up its history, and some will be included here, but what is just as important is a flavor of the times.

Lisa and Gene Blackstone

Beth and Ann Stover

THE BEGINNING Given the size of the area—from the tip of Florida to the northern borders of North Carolina and Tennessee, and as far west as Mississippi—it is not surprising that the Southeast’s Arabian horse communities developed individually. Their best method of communication when they weren’t at a horse show was through the Southeastern Arabian Horse Association. For years, prominent trainer Jim Fisher was its chairman and Atlanta-area horsewoman Jean Blackstone, whose daughter Lisa is Region 12’s director today, was its secretary. Blackstone, a native of North Carolina, and Ann Stover, who grew up in north Georgia, both recall the Arabian horse community of the early 1960s. “Be ready for culture shock!” Blackstone laughs. “Most of us were training our own horses and showing just one or two at a time; we were in awe of the trainers because there were so few of them. We were all keenly aware that there were very few Arabians, and we loved them dearly and fiercely promoted them.” There were four major Arabian horse farms at the time, she says. Edith Rosenberg’s Rose Araby Arabians was in Abbeville, S.C.; Dick Landmesser was the trainer, and the farm’s sire, Aahdin, was runner-up for the title of AHSA Horse of the Year. Margaret Shuey’s Sunny Acres was in Asheville, N.C., with George Ingle as trainer, and Shelton Rimer’s Bali Hai was in Greenville, S.C. Halali Farm, which was then located in Georgia, was owned by Janice and Frank Rust, and was known not only for its horses, but also its trainers. After he left Lasma, where he had shown *Bask to the stallion’s U.S. National Championship in Park,

Volume 45, No. 2 | 77


El Mudir and Gene LaCroix.

Jerry Smola (who also had been Gene LaCroix’s first mentor as a trainer), was often at Halali to train horses, and at another point, the farm was home to Harold Brite, who would go on to train for Bazy Tankersley at Al Marah Arabians. Jim Fisher, who was inducted this year into the Region 12 Hall of Fame, also was widely recognized then, working for several different farms over the years before settling in at Curt Gwinn’s Dixieland Arabian Stud. The mutual commitment to promoting the horses was the basis of much of the group’s near-legendary camaraderie. “A lot of us rode in costume in parades to promote our Arabians,” Blackstone recalls, “and a lot of us did things like go to shopping centers, when they had big events, to show our horses and talk to people about them. We took the Arabians to schools to share them with school children. We were all individual promoters.” They also lobbied for their own classes in all-breed shows. “Three was our goal,” she says. “The shows always wanted costume, and we’d argue for western and English too. Then when we got them, we would call everyone within a reasonable area to turn out and everyone would, and they’d fill the classes just to promote Arabians.” The shows were social occasions as well as competitions. With so many people training and showing their own horses, most of the owners stayed at the show grounds.

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

Harold Brite

“This is what you won’t believe,” Blackstone smiles. “The owners would turn a tack stall into a bedroom, and the trainers were the ones who stayed in hotels! I remember when Lee Caldwell came in for the Stone Mountain Classic and had gone to his hotel, and he came back to the show grounds and said, ‘My room is so big, you could bowl in there!’ He was always a clown, but he was a big story for us because he was from out of our area. And then when Stanley White came in with the Al Marah string, we were so impressed. Here was the Stanley White!” (White would later move to Region 12 with Lancer Arabians.) While the Southeastern community was delighted to welcome big guns from out of the area, their own horses were becoming more and more important and competitive. Those who follow Lasma might remember *Bask’s best friend, the 1970 U.S. National Park Champion *El Mudir, but before the Scottsdale nursery purchased “Elmo” in 1969, the stallion called Georgia home; he was imported by Halali Farm in 1961 and showed to a national top ten in 1968. The popular stallion High Hopes, who won the 1974 U.S. National Championship in Park with Jim Fisher, was bred by DLK Ranch in Florida and lived in the Southeast until 1980. And another Fisher trainee, Angelo Storm, nailed the 1977 U.S. National Reserve Championship in Formal Combination and the 1980 Canadian National Championship in that division (along with a fistful of other titles; he got around).


High Hopes and Jim Fisher.

The show scene was rich and varied. Karl Hart remembers that nearly all of the shows were held in outside arenas; the only one indoors was an elegant all-breed affair held at Coconut Grove’s Dinner Key Auditorium, a society event that benefited charity. In cold months, Florida’s all-breed Sunshine Circuit beckoned. “We went to Gainesville, Fla., several times,” Ann Stover says, “and there were two shows in Miami at Tropical Park. Then we came to the Thanksgiving Show, which was held in several places in the early to mid1960s—Orlando, Tampa, Winter Haven. We’d be home for Christmas and pull the horses’ shoes, and we’d start back in the spring. “We all showed together,” she says, “Arabians, Saddlebreds, Morgans—it was such fun. You got to meet people from other breeds and see their beautiful horses, and you could sit and watch them train. I think if a lot of the little shows that are suffering so badly now, could get together with another breed, perhaps it would help.” Jean Blackstone remembers the Thanksgiving Show as a “big pilgrimage everybody made.” She laughs that her daughter once embarrassed her thoroughly over it. “Lisa was quoted in an article that for years she had Thanksgiving dinner at Howard Johnson’s,” Blackstone says, “but we had turkey on the grounds too. The club there—Kay Spitzer, Fran Lee, Willis Flick and others— provided it. There was such camaraderie.”

Ivanhoe Tsultan

She recalls another example of the mutual support that was routine in that era. At one show, she says, she had scheduled a luncheon away from the facility on a day she had a class, and when she got back to the show grounds, Edith Rosenberg was waving at her and shouting that a class before hers had cancelled. Hers was about to go in. “She had all my clothes out,” Blackstone remembers. “My friends had groomed, saddled and bridled my horse, and all I had to do was get my clothes on and go into the ring. That was commonplace. We all looked out for each other.” No matter how exciting the social whirl, the horses came first. “I remember a show at Stone Mountain,” Blackstone says. “We always had a big party, a dinner dance, where we’d all get dressed up. That year a big storm came up, and LaDonna Monroe (a beautiful horsewoman!) suddenly said, ‘I’ve got to go to the show grounds! My horse is standing in his stalls with leg wraps on!’ Everybody, all dressed up, ran to the show grounds to rescue horses.” As it turned out, the drainage at Stone Mountain was so poor that there had been a flood, complete with a lot of mud, so the overdressed owners were kept pretty busy. But no one complained. “When Lee Caldwell left, he said, ‘There’s a $100 Persian rug in that tack stall if somebody wants to dig it out!’ … That party was sure forgotten.” Talk to those from the era, and the names of people and horses from the 1960s and 1970s fly fast. In Florida, among others, Rafflingle Arabians, Willis Flick, DLK

Ranch, Winburn and Milly Sherouse, John Evans, Dalur Arabians, and later Nodorama and Town and Country, were stalwarts, and the training ranks included such standouts as Jimmy Warden, Halsey Murch and Stanley White. Russell Lee and Judge Clayton were well known from Alabama; Jim Fisher and his brother, Lamar, were likewise in the Carolinas. Fisher was particularly recognized (among his other stars—and there were many—Ibn Silver Ghost, 1976 U.S. National Champion in Pleasure Driving, and the *Serafix son Golden Fix, still draw admiring comments). And there were others, the sort of litany that comes up when one horseman talks to another and faces come back with a rush of familiarity that makes it hard to believe it all took place so long ago. By the early 1970s, when AHA (then IAHA) adopted the regional system, the Southeast was a thriving community of breed enthusiasts that routinely sent horses to the U.S. and Canadian National Shows that could win. As Region 12, it would ride the growing wave of Arabian horses in North America’s equine industry. IT’S OFFICIAL—REGION 12 At its convention of 1973, IAHA designed a network of 18 regions, to go into effect the following year. As Rohara’s Karl Hart recalls, clubs were entitled to delegates based on their numbers, and each region would elect a director who would have a seat on the IAHA board. Region 12 was especially large in territory because other parts of the country, comparatively, had higher

concentrations of horses in smaller areas. At the time of the convention, Hart remembers that the states which would be Region 12 were represented by two people, Jim Fisher and Judge Clayton. Fisher ran for regional director, as did Hart, who had noticed that probably 50 percent of the new region’s horses lived in Florida. After a run-off, Hart became the first Region 12 Director. He would serve a total of six two-year terms over the next three decades, and his service was such that last year, he was selected as one of the two original inductees into the region’s Hall of Fame; the other was Stanley White. Did the new regional system make any substantive difference for Southeastern horsemen? “I think it did,” nods Jean Blackstone. “Our circle became broader.” “People really were impressed with themselves and everyone else,” Ann Stover observes. “We had good horses and good equipment (and stall drapes became popular—everybody had to be a little fancier than everybody else!).” Among Hart’s first actions was the creation of the Region 12 Championships, one of the earliest regionals in the country. Over the years, it has known three locations: it began at Stone Mountain, moved to Dewey Henderson’s arena south of Atlanta, and finally settled at the state fairgrounds in Perry, an hour and a half south of Georgia’s capital. When it came around every spring, the big vans arrived from points north and west—from


Asaad and Stanley White.

Lasma in Scottsdale, Gleannloch and Bentwood in Texas, Lewisfield in Virginia, and more, and local horsemen were happy to take them on. Gene LaCroix, headquartered at that time in Scottsdale, recalls hauling his show string to the Atlanta area. “When *Bask had foals, Dad’s philosophy was ‘go and show where people haven’t seen our horses’ to give them more exposure,” he explains. So over the years, the Southeast was treated to the sight of such contenders as the star park horse Scarlet Lace. But like everyone else, LaCroix had to work for his titles. The influx of out-of-area contenders increased after the regions were set up. “People had to qualify for Nationals,” Blackstone, who also served on the first National Show Commission, says. “That was the big thing. “In the beginning, if you qualified for Nationals, you had bragging rights,” she adds. “Nobody expected for everybody to go; you just wanted to be good enough.” “I have been fortunate to see [Region 12] grow from the very beginning,” says Roxann Hart. “It always felt good if you were successful at Region 12, because if you won there, it meant you could win anywhere. You could compete with the very best.” Rohara, which saw its success expand exponentially from the early years of Ivanhoe Tsultan on, added decades of headline sires and recruited top trainers for its show string. In the late

Good Thunder with John Rannenberg.

1970s, Rick Moser headed the training barn, and then in 1985, John Rannenberg took over. Rannenberg remembers arriving in Region 12 in 1981, when he went to work for Kenny Rogers. “I was welcomed with open arms,” he says. “It was a friendly region and whether it was me or Kenny or the times or whatever, I think that goes with the mentality of Southern hospitality.” So did the caliber of horses he found in the Southeast. “Although it felt the changes of the industry, I think the Region 12 Show maintained a standard,” he says. “There were many horses that came out of it and went on to be national champions every year. The cool thing is that it was across the board, in halter, English, western, hunter, dressage, sport horses. It’s a very well rounded group of people that bred, raised, trained, showed and marketed horses.” Just looking at a list of horses who have come out of Region 12 can be dizzying (and a complete accounting is impossible). From *El Mudir, High Hopes and the earlier stars through the straight Egyptian *Asaad, who was U.S. National Champion in both Stallions and English Pleasure, through such national champions as Rohara Moon Storm and Good Thunder (just to name a couple), on up to today, where Region 12 residents Vicki Humphrey, Joel Kiesner, John Rannenberg, Tish Kondas and David Mikosz are so forceful in the English Pleasure

division, the area has offered a steady stream of national champions. In one show ring match-up at the Region 12 Championships, soon-to-be-legends Magnum Psyche and Versace faced off as yearlings. Both were bred and foaled in the Southeast. ONE GEOGRAPHY, MULTIPLE ERAS It is natural to ask: which was more fun—the innocence of the 1960s, the meteoric atmosphere of the 1980s, or the challenging competition of today? Ann Stover demurs. She enjoyed showing with her daughter Beth (“a fourth generation horsewoman and she’s better than all of us”) in the old days and she still does. “It’s just as much fun now as it ever was,” she says, “but it was a totally different kind of thing early on.” Jean Blackstone agrees. She has seen the region from 82 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

the viewpoint of a small owner, and in the heyday of the 1980s as a large owner, when her Onyx Arabians offered a roster of 125 horses. “I miss the camaraderie and singleness of purpose that we all had,” she admits, “but it’s still fun to show Arabian horses, and I still promote them at every opportunity. It’s a different kind of fun now, but it’s been a wonderful life.” Stover considers the years of going to shows. “You watched your friends grow up and grow older, and then you watched their children. The people in this life that we have are my family.” Unknowingly, she echoes Blackstone, and maybe that’s the secret behind much of Region 12’s success. “It has been a wonderful life. I think some of the greatest people on earth are right here.”

JACK AND ANN LAPOINTE AND LISA LAPOINTE GIOVANNIELLO DIAMOND HILL ARABIANS WAXHAW, N.C. The Lapointe family came to their decision to move to the Southeast easily: when Jack and Ann came to visit their son Michael in 1997, they left Rhode Island with 53 inches of snow and landed in Asheville, N.C., in 73-degree temperatures. It was not long before not only they, but their daughter Lisa, decided that living in the southeast was in order. Several friends, many of whom would board their horses at the Lapointes’ Diamond Hill Arabians, followed. “Once we started showing, we were impressed by the choices we had for great English trainers, all in the Region 12 area!” says Jack Lapointe. “It is no surprise to us that Region 12 is one of the most popular AHA regions for breeding and raising English-style Arabian performance horses. And when you take into consideration how well run and exhibitor-friendly Region 12 is, it makes for one great horse show! “For some, the Arabian horse serves as just a source of great beauty and inspiration,” he continues. “For others, it is a passion and thrilling pastime. However, a select few take that passion and transform it into a complete lifestyle. That is the best way to describe us.” The breeding program at Diamond Hill, while designed to produce top-tier horses, is focused on English pleasure Arabians—“exceptional, high quality, athletic English Arabians and Half-Arabians, with great conformation and temperaments to match,” in Jack Lapointe’s words. “We are sincerely devoted to the Arabian horse,” he says, “not only in our monetary commitments, but in the time and strategic thought behind each horse we breed.”

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

Although involved with the Arabian breed since the 1980s, it is the 2008 Region 12 Championship Show which holds special significance. With the stallion Hucks Connection V, daughter, Lisa (Lapointe) Giovanniello won in Amateur English Pleasure unanimously, followed by Vicki Humphrey claiming the English Pleasure Championship in open. “Lisa is quite an accomplished equestrian, winning multitudes of regional and national championships over the years,” says Jack. “However, none can compete with the memory of her first unanimous title with Hucks Connection V at Region 12.” “I was ready,” Lisa smiles. “My entire ride was effortless. We were so together, I knew in the line-up I’d had the easiest ride of my life.” When the Lapointes purchased Hucks Connection V from Sheila Varian, their plan was to show him for a few years and then focus on breeding. “We believe we have a stallion with the pedigree and ability to become one of the industry’s most successful sires of English horses,” Jack explained.


The strength of their commitment has remained evident. In 2012, despite the overall downturn in Arabian breeding, Diamond Hill bred 10 national champion producing mares to Hucks Connection V (a lineup that included daughters of Afire Bey V, Baske Afire, Hucklebey Berry, MHR Nobility and Justafire DGL, along with three impressive Saddlebred mares). In addition, they bred a Half Saddlebred/Dutch mare that produced an outstanding filly that several English trainers have labeled “the real deal.” “This year, we have a gorgeous colt we call Carolina Chrome, who’s by Baske Afire, and out of Berry Fancee, who is a full sibling to Princess Of Baske,” says Jack. “We believe he will be as spectacular.” If he matches expectations, the colt could represent the next step in Diamond Hill’s program as an outcross for Hucks Connection V daughters. “We live in an impatient world in which everyone expects their communication to be instantaneous,” says Jack Lapointe. “The strategic usage of media platforms, photography, video and costume graphics is the reality of our new age. With the help of Laura Corder, of Envision Venture, we are creating a brand on an already well known reputation as breeders of high quality English horses that reflect our passion for the performance Arabian horse. We are excited for the innovative projects ahead in the promotion and sales of our talented English offspring—now under saddle and ready for the show ring!” facing page: Jack Lapointe family and Vicki Humphrey with Hucks Connection V. right: Lisa Giovanniello and Hucks Connection V.

TOMMY GARLAND GARLANDS POWHATAN, VA. Tommy Garland has been riding and training horses for more than 30 years, and is known as one of the top western trainers in the country. Along the way, he also acquired a reputation for his creative promotion, doing a television show and appearing tirelessly at clinics and expos. The championships came over the years, principally in western pleasure and hunter (although his expertise extended to other disciplines); stars that come to mind are SF Georgia, who put him on the map with the 1997 U.S. National Championship in Western Pleasure Junior Horse, and such names as U.S. National Champions WN Knight Rider, Midnight Magnum, JF Verrisk, Dancin To Victory and more. But lately, Garland has been aware that he wants to share more than just fancy ribbons with his clients—and what’s more, many of his clients feel the same. It’s all about the enjoyment of the Arabian, they say, both in the ring and out. Now, he says, he is refocusing his career. He enjoys English, and he plans to do more of it; his daughter, Katie, is a rising star professional in the division. And he will offer marketing to serve a wider range of clients, including those in western, hunter and English; currently, he has prospects and show veterans on offer at prices ranging from entry-level to individuals already tagged for the big time. Most importantly, he is tuned in to the “fun” aspect of showing, and how Arabian horses can play a role as entertainment for the whole family. “I looked around and saw that for a lot of people, showing just wasn’t fun anymore,” he says candidly. “We’ve created that by making it a second job for them. We’re trying to get the most out of the horse and the most out of the rider, and

they’re feeling a lot of pressure to win. We seem to have forgotten that a top ten is something good! I think we’ve forgotten to look at the people coming up, and what they really want, which a lot of the time is just to have fun. “I have a lot of select riders and new people in my barn,” he continues. “Riding horses should be about their enjoying the journey and getting better with their horses. It’s about their setting goals and going after them. It’s not always about going in and winning.” The agenda at Garlands this year includes cookouts at the barn before big shows, a river rafting trip, and other activities that round out the equine experience and build team spirit. “We have to let it become a family and a team effort,” he says. “I think that’s very important in the horse industry today.” A barn as family-centric as his, he admits, is not for everyone, but it seems to fit his clients. Already, he has seen some people, noticing how much their family members enjoy the horses, elect to try it for themselves. Garland also plans to do a few expos in the future, and as significantly, offer a series of clinics at the farm. “I

want to help people who have show horses, but can’t really afford to keep them in full-time training with a professional,” he says. “They can come here for a three-day clinic, go home and practice, and then come back in a month or two and we’ll work on it more—give them the opportunity to learn and get better that they might not have any other way.” None of that means that he won’t have some high-potential, exciting show horses this year, because he does; one in particular reminds him so much of SF Georgia that he can’t keep the excitement out of his voice when he talks about the future. But that is just the icing on the cake. “It’s all about diversifying the business and looking at the model in a different way,” Garland says. “Our slogan for the future is ‘Bringing the fun back to horse showing.’”

ROXANN AND KARL HART Rohara Orange Lake, Fla. “I love Region 12 because it is home to some of the highest caliber breeders in the country,” says Roxann Hart. “We have become one of the strongest group of breeders, for the quality that is produced, of almost anywhere in the country. When you go to the Region 12 Championships, you’re competing against some of the finest individuals anywhere, and the caliber of the competition makes it so much more interesting.” Hart, who acquired her first Arabian in 1959, is a lifelong resident of the area; she began her breeding program in 1968. That she has been successful is undeniable. Now in its fifth generation, the Rohara program has produced countless national champion Arabians and Half-Arabians in halter and performance, and been home to some of the most acclaimed bloodstock in the country. It also has exported horses to 17 countries around the world, including Europe, the Middle East, Australia and South America, where they have shown to national honors. It all goes back to Region 12, she smiles, and how good your horses had to be to compete there. She has attended every Region 12 Championship since the show’s inception, and one source of pride has been that since those early days, the show has attracted many of the top barns from around the country as well as the Southeast. A win there, she says, really does set up a horse for the national scene. It is not just the value of the ribbon, though, Hart adds. The show itself is just plain enjoyable. “The facility at Perry, Ga., is tremendous—you have everything! It’s better than almost any facility I’ve ever been to; it has adequate warm-up areas, safe places to put your horses, and it’s well-run. They are caring and exhibitor-friendly, and that makes for a good environment to bring your horses to and show. I love to go to Region 12.”

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

Rohara’s history at the Southeastern shows and beyond is based on Hart’s breeding program, and a roll call of some of the headliners who have contributed to it over the years would include Ivanhoe Tsultan, U.S. National Top Five Futurity Colt who went on to sire a dynasty; Bay El Bey, on lease from Varian Arabians; U.S. National Champion Stallions Exceladdinn and El Nabila B; Justafire DGL; JK Amadeus; Good Thunder; and QR Marc. While at Rohara, Justafire DGL, JK Amadeus and Ivanhoe Tsultan all sired U.S. National Champion Mares (Rohara Tsultress and Aalusive Bey, both of whom won at Region 12 before going on to national honors, and S Justadream, whose 10 national championships make her the leader for number of titles won). In its Half-Arabian division, the farm has been home to such names as Miz American Pie and the Saddlebreds Flameworthy (dam of MM Magnum Butterfly, GA Clio DuLaine and Rohara Hermes) and Oliviah, yielding a long list of national champions in that arena as well. Maybe the most exciting aspect of the farm now is, what comes next? There is always a “next,” at Rohara, and for the 2015 breeding season, the excitement centers on its stallion roster. Its firepower is already substantial: ABD Justinian, Majik of Marwan, Montana Firenze, Rohara Aria Spartan, Rohara Crown Prince, Rohara Majician, Shaddofax and Sovereignn have enviable records. The newest face in the lineup will be coming from Knocke Arabians, in Belgium, and in some ways will be bringing the farm full circle. The 4-year-old Pavarotto KA, now


owned by Rohara and the R. Kirk Landon Revocable Trust, was Gold Champion and Best Male in Show at the 2012 European Breeders Championships. For Hart, however, his value is especially apparent in his pedigree. He is by QR Marc, who began his career as a sire at the farm before being sold to Belgium, and offers the modern sire line of Marwan Al Shaqab and Magic Dream.

Nearly 50 years ago, Rohara’s breeding program grew out of the ultra-competitive Region 12 circuit, and for Roxann Hart, that is still a good place to start when taking on the world. ■ below: Michael Hart and Joe Alberti at Region 12 Show. bottom: Rohara foundation mares Emenee, Rohara Tsultress and Rohara Tstatusque.

Pavarotto’s damline, Hart says, is just plain “supreme”— and it also recalls lines instrumental from the beginning in Rohara’s success. The stallion’s dam is Palanga, 2003 European Champion Filly and 2004 Junior Reserve Champion Filly at Bialka. She is by Ekstern (a Monogramm son tracing to *Bask), and out of the top class Panika, whose show credits include, among others, 2006 All Nations Cup and European Senior Reserve Champion Mare, World Top Ten Senior Mare at the Salon du Cheval, and 2007 Polish National Reserve Champion Senior Mare.

2014

Show by ANNE STRATTON

The Buckeye is one of those shows with a special place in the history of Arabians in North America. For more than half a century, it has maintained a prominent position on the show calendar without many of the benefits some other high-profile events offer. It is not a season-end championship, its weather is nothing special, its city offers little glitz and glamour, and its facility, while useful, is not picturesque. But it always has been a favorite. Why do its horsemen keep coming back, many driving a long way to attend? Two reasons stand out: its exhibitor-friendly atmosphere and its top-notch competition. The Ohio Buckeye Sweepstakes, held over Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-26) in Columbus, Ohio, and featuring $50,000 in prize money, is still big business. This year’s event got high marks. “I think the quality in every division was very good,” reports Bob Gordon, who, along with Scott Brumfield and Mitch Sperte, judged the show. It was Gordon’s first time at the Buckeye, and he, like Brumfield, is booked to officiate at this year’s U.S. Nationals as well. He adds that the show’s trademark English division was particularly hard to miss. “The English and the country classes were huge. When Cindy [Clinton, show manager] was asked to help by splitting classes—I think those were the ones that typically were split—that was pretty cool, and there were very good horses in every one of them. That’s what made it fun for me.” The Buckeye has long been known for its English horses, and Clinton agrees that this year’s contenders were among their best. “They proved our slogan, ‘Where National Champions Are Made,’” she smiles. “And equitation was phenomenal this year. It was as deep as a national class. Of our top eight, I almost guarantee that most of them will be top ten at Youth Nationals.” 96 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

It was part of the overall junior exhibitor story, she notes. “Youth entries appeared doubled, and with the show coming at graduation and finals week, that is always difficult. We did what we could to make it easier for the kids to attend—we added classes, changed times, whatever was possible to help them out.” That went hand-in-hand with a trend Clinton says she has seen increasingly over the past two years. The number of horses at the show might have been slightly down, but the entries per horse have been up. “Amateurs are showing their horses more,” she observes. “Right now, people who are spending the money to send their horses to a show want to ride them themselves. It used to be that the trainers showed the young horses until the amateurs were ready for them, but we’re offering amateurs so much now that they are choosing their own classes. So we’re seeing the open classes a little lighter, but the amateur classes full.” Another interesting point from this year’s show, she says, was the halter. In years past, she had been told that their numbers decreased because the Buckeye employed the scoring system. This year, they changed back to comparative showing. “Being a Class A show, I didn’t have to use the score card,” she explains, “so we applied for and got permission not to, as kind of a test. The prize list was out for months, so everyone knew that we were not using the scoring system, but in the end, comparative judging made no difference in the number of entries.” Regarding the numbers situation—a slight decrease overall at the show—Clinton points out that 2014 is hard to evaluate because of singular circumstances. Region 9’s move-in dates overlapped the Buckeye’s, making it impossible for the Texas barns who normally


attend to come north, and there was the coincidence of trainer changes and injuries at farms which were regular participants. The silver lining in that cloud was that when front row stalls came open, young trainers snapped up the higher-profile accommodations. In addition to the competition, the Buckeye is known for supporting its exhibitors, and this year it lived up to its reputation. A standard feature at the show is the Horse Show App, which ensures up-to-the-minute availability of information. “The App is like our own updated program,” Clinton says. “The judges cards are seen within minutes of their being turned in. You can be sitting in the stands watching the class and see the cards right away.”

What is the takeaway from the show which has been a hit for such a long time? There is the topnotch competition, of course, but that is not all. Bob Gordon saw more than just the view from center ring, as impressive as that was. As president of the Minnesota Half-Arabian Association, he observed with an eye toward enhancing his club’s show. “The one thing I really took away from the Buckeye was the exhibitor-friendliness of the horse show,” he says. “To me, that is a huge deal. We have to make everything as exhibitor friendly as possible.” ■

Also on the technological front, a 2014 innovation was that wi-fi was offered free of charge in the coliseum, and per usual, the Buckeye was live-streamed on Arabian Horse Global for those unable to be there. There was an array of other amenities as well. A vendor area provided shopping for exhibitors between classes, while nearby, two Bounce Houses and an inflatable basketball arrangement kept the kids entertained. And Friday night’s traditional Progressive Party, always a success, was again a social panorama as a tide of people moved along the barn aisles. Clinton is quick to praise everyone on the Buckeye team. “I have to thank all the people who help put this show on,” she says. “Schneider Saddlery has been a corporate sponsor since I came on board, and Nutrena® is in its second year. And Jarvis Insurance provided great gift baskets for our gold and silver sponsors, as they have done for two years.”

Show

New in 2015

The AEPA Strawberry Banks AOTR Maturity

Since 2008, the Ohio Buckeye has been home to the Arabian English Performance Association’s Yearling In-Hand Futurity. Offering $15,000 in prize money, it was one of the highlights of the show’s schedule. Next year, that will change—not the venue, but the type of class. And its prize money will go up. “The purpose of AEPA is to build growth and participation in the English performance division,” says Peter Conway, the organization’s president. “So, we tried an experiment to see if we could get people involved with yearlings in that class.” The specifications of the competition, which offered a relaxed style of halter presentation for the youngsters, directed that the horses be judged for English potential.

Over the years the class was in operation, however, it never really attracted sustained support. “My guess is that most performance people did not want to send their yearlings out to a class yet,” Conway says. “They want to wait until they grow up and then bring them in for performance training.” Therefore, the in-hand competition has been discontinued. “We decided to try something that we know people have been clambering for, and that’s more opportunity for amateur owners to win prize money and to participate,” Conway says. Barbara Chur, of Strawberry Banks Farm, stepped up to augment the prize money, and the result is calculated to please. “The AEPA Strawberry Banks AOTR Maturity is for amateur owners to ride,” Conway says, “and is for 5- and 6-year-old horses that were sired by an AEPA stallion at the time of the breeding. It is open to all English performance horses, both country and English, but it will be judged by country English standards.” The Maturity will offer not only a prestigious title. On Friday night at the 2015 Buckeye, it also will be passing out $20,000 in prize money. “The Buckeye Board is thrilled to be a part of the AEPA’s innovative ideas,” says Cindy Clinton. “We appreciate their choosing our show to hold this new and exciting class.”

The 2014 Region 10 Championship Show

Summertime In Minnesota by Kara Larson

Region 10 Director Laura Mickelson can’t pin down her favorite part of the 2014 Region 10 Championship Horse Show. And that’s fair. With nearly 500 horses showing, excellent competition within this high number, and some classic Region 10 camaraderie, there was a great deal to appreciate at the show. Mickelson shares, “I really enjoyed watching the kids have a wonderful time in the Youth Lounge. We moved it into the vendor area and had a lot more participation. I also was very happy to see that the new schedule allowed for a much more relaxed and

enjoyable show. The attendance at the progressive dinner and dance was amazing and everyone had a great time on a gorgeous night.” From this interesting combination of horse show activities, it is clear that Region 10 has a little bit of everything going for it. And most importantly, the show committee really cares about the exhibitors, the horses, and what is best for both. Mickelson offers, “We really pay attention to what exhibitors tell us. We have a suggestion box at the show so people can

classes. We had 16 in both the hunter pleasure and equitation classes and 12 and 13 in the western pleasure and equitation classes.”

The committee also utilizes other avenues to enhance the hands-on experience of the show. Laura shares, “We circulate draft versions of the schedule, as well as putting it on Facebook. This feedback allows us to make changes to the schedule to avoid conflicts and holds and again, to make the show enjoyable. We look at the show anew every year. We encourage the people that are not with training barns, by having AOTR classes as well as Select classes, some of which are also age split. This package makes it more likely that these exhibitors will come to the show and as long as they are coming, they go in additional classes. Adult equitation and showmanship are also incentives to come to Region 10.”

Beyond fun activities, new classes, abundant positive feedback, great competition, and an ever-present desire to give everyone involved an excellent horse show, people were also talking about the number and quality of the indoor warm-ups, the new schedule, the youth lounge, and, of course, the progressive dinner and dance. This popular event takes over the Friday night of the show, transforming the street into an energetic parade of good food and good entertainment. Music from a live DJ fills the air and everyone winds down from the hard work of the first couple days of the horse show.

Something a director always loves to hear is that their show has merit—a phrase that was uttered many a time at this year’s show. “The quality was definitely there. I heard comments that “a top five in Region 10 means something.” One of the judges commented on the depth of the quality of the Arabian Western Pleasure AAOTR classes, some of which had over 20 entries! The new adult showmanship class had 13 entries.” Mickelson continues, “What is especially encouraging to me is the size of the walk/trot-jog

So, next year, when June rolls around, make sure Region 10 is on your calendar. Mickelson campaigns for her show, saying, “It is fun for the whole family, very competitive, and in a great metropolitan area.” Already contemplating next year, Mickelson adds, “Right now, we are considering different limits for class size as well as the going with the new leveling system. I think that the charity events will be expanded and even more fun. Region 10 is always innovative, so who knows what we will come up with for 2015!” Volume 45, No. 2 |

THE

IN SIX EASY QUESTIONS by Anne Stratton

One of the most up-and-coming sectors of the show ring, Working Western has been growing by leaps and bounds as people have discovered how much fun it is to ride. With that progression, its lucrative futurity programs have attracted more top-level trainers from both Arabians and Quarter Horses, and as breeders have stepped up to the plate with better horses, the competition has become razor-sharp. These days, being very good one year doesn’t guarantee a trophy the next. To keep up with what is happening, Arabian Horse Times tracked down an array of its practitioners to ask their opinions on the sport. Some are trainers (specialists in both Quarter Horses and Arabians) and some are exhibitors; some are breeders, and some are horse show management professionals. Here is what they said.

Volume 45, No. 2 | 157


CEDAR RIDGE JORDAN, MINN. Dick Ames has been in Arabian horses for nearly half a century. He is an active supporter of the working western division, and rides as an amateur. With Tom Redmond and Joe Betten, he founded the Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Futurities a decade ago, and currently, he serves as president of the Arabian Reining Breeders Classic, scheduled for September 2014 in Las Vegas, Nev.

What do you look for in conformation on the working western horse? You need a horse with a strong body, strong in the hips, with a good front end and a good mind. What we have over the other breeds is a pretty horse, so what’s wrong with a pretty head too, as long as the other parts that make it work are there? A head can’t slide very well or work a cow, but what is inside it helps a lot! What is the best time to start a youngster that will compete in the working western division? It depends on the conformation of the individual, but we start working with them probably in the late 2-year-old year, and definitely by the time they are 3. But it depends on the individual horse. How do we promote a stronger market for our working western horses? Probably get rid of some of the rules we have which don’t make much common sense. That will make it easier for the public. 158 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


How important are the futurity classes in the working western division? Very important, because of the money. We’ve seen the success the Minnesota Breeders Futurity has had; it’s got money in the bank and it pays back—that’s very popular and very successful. That is why I’ve been supportive of reining futurities. What are your thoughts at the major shows re showcasing a working western class on a Friday or Saturday night? We want to get these horses in front of a crowd and we know that those are the two biggest nights, so we have to work hard to get the show committees to do that for us. I think the general public as a whole would say that this is an exciting class that appeals to the non-horse people. Who is your all-time favorite working western horse? Actually, probably my favorite horse was a Palomino HalfArabian gelding Robert Miller had. I tried to buy the horse, but Robert would never sell it to me.

ELEANOR’S ARABIANS ROGERS, MINN. One of the most recognized names in working western Arabians, Eleanor Hamilton has bred and raised Arabian reiners since the mid-1980s. An accomplished amateur rider, she maintains an active training stable under the direction of Rod Matthiesen, and stands both Arabian and Quarter Horse stallions. The best known have been her foundation sire, the late Crown Musc, and current headliner, leading futurity sire Hesa Zee.

the process; that is, they need to know how to travel, be away from home, stand in the stall, ring manners etc. How do we promote a stronger market for our working western horses? Sandy Woerle started a great concept with the Working Western Celebration, combining the working Quarter Horse, Half-Arabian and purebred Arabians into one class. The judge judges the performance and then in the office, the scores are split out. This makes it possible for a trainer to take and show various breeds all at the same horse show. It’s been great for us as well. My Half-Arabian, Built By Peppy, won the 2014 North Central Reined Cow Circuit in the Ranchers Pleasure Division. He is by our Quarter Horse stallion Little Sorrell Peppy, and out of a Xenophonn daughter. How important are the futurity classes in the working western division? These futurity classes enable our youngsters to compete in their own age bracket. What are your thoughts at the major shows re showcasing a working western class on a Friday or Saturday night? The working western classes are crowd pleasers, there is no doubt about that. If you want to impress a crowd, that would be a big draw. But I think you have to consider it

What do you look for in conformation on the working western horse? I like a horse that has the conformation to get down and dirty and look pretty doing it. What is the best time to start a youngster that will compete in the working western division? We like to start ours early, just get them trained to be saddled, move off the pressure of the leg and not buck. Then we turn them back out to pasture for a few months. Youngsters that we send out are started as each trainer desires. We personally do not show 3-year-olds in reining, but depending on the youngster, we may take it to a show and put it in a western pleasure class. These youngsters don’t need to go with the pressure of showing, but need to mature in

show by show; you have to keep in mind that by the last Saturday night at Nationals, the horses and the riders are all pretty tired. At Nationals, where a lot of people are there all week, you might draw just as big a crowd on an earlier night and the performances would be better. Who is your all-time favorite working western horse? My favorite horse was a little mare, probably barely 14 hands, that was a mixed breed of about everything you can throw in. She was called Jelly Beans, and I learned to ride on her when I was 8 years old. At that age we learned to ride bareback; if you fell off, you fell off. She sure knew how to chase a cow! She was also a broodmare, so by the time she came to me, she had a backbone that would kill a bareback rider. She was the one who got me started, and she will always be special.

What do you look for in conformation on the working western horse? Trainers and riders look for a horse with low hocks, a short back, strong hindquarters and good shoulders. Horses with this type of conformation would be able to do the quick turns, stops and spins required to  compete  in  working western classes.

What is the best time to start a youngster that will compete in the working western division? Because of the cattle used in some of the working western classes, the youngster will have to be mature enough to have the cow-sense needed to work. If immature, they could refuse to turn and bolt away from their cattle. Once this has been expressed, it can be difficult for the youngster to overcome this behavior. How do we promote a stronger market for our working western horses? The horse industry has become educated that the Arabian horse can compete in working western. The addition of the Team Ranch Sorting, with the agreement between AHA and Ranch Sorting National Championships (RSNC) in 2013, has proved to be successful. Through this partnership, AHA will award RSNC points to Arabians, Half-Arabians and AngloArabians participating in ranch sorting competitions. At the 2014 U.S. Nationals, there will be a  Ranch Sorting Exhibition on Saturday afternoon, October 25th, in the Mustang Arena immediately after the cow horse finals. How important are the futurity classes in the working western division? Futurity classes in all disciplines are the place to showcase the future of our breed. These classes feature the best and hottest of the working western youngest. What are your thoughts at the major shows re showcasing a working western class on a Friday or Saturday night? Since some of the working western classes are not broadcast live during the shows, it is very much appreciated when these classes are shown later in the day. The owners, riders and trainers deserve the right for these classes to be aired to the public.

events at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. When Woerle took her Half-Arabian working western prospect Throttle Up SB, aka “Rocky,” to Quarter Horse specialist Lance Scheffel, of LRS Performance Horses, to be started, she opened a door for both of them: under Scheffel’s guidance, Throttle Up SB picked up a U.S. National Top Ten in the Half-Arabian Working Cow Horse Futurity and went on to a Scottsdale championship a few months later. Woerle and Scheffel are now partners in several Arabians and Half-Arabians, some of which Scheffel will be riding at U.S. Nationals in October. How do we promote a stronger market for our working western horses? We need to get our horses out in front of the public. I know, easier said than done, but all breeds are looking to grow their base and we need to be out there in unique ways. We are fortunate here in the upper Midwest that both the local affiliates of NRHA and NRCHA have welcomed Arabians and Half-Arabians in their respective organizations. A new concept we are attempting here is called the Working Western Celebration, where the working western disciplines are featured regardless of breeds. We are NRHA and NRCHA sanctioned, along with AHA and AQHA recognized, and would welcome other breeds as well, such as Paint, Appaloosa and Morgan. Eleanor Hamilton has been supportive of this all-breed format from the beginning and she sponsors the Hesa Zee Reining Challenge. We have one draw where the spectators are treated to multiple breeds and levels of horsemanship in one

Who is your all-time favorite working western horse? Khemonada, owned by Eddie and Mitzie Ralston. He is an amazing Arabian horse with a remarkable show record himself, and his offspring continue to compete and win at the regional and national level every year. To this day, he continues to teach amateurs and youth riders how to work a cow.

sitting. Exhibitors may “enter-up” in as many divisions as they feel competent under one go. For example, if a non-pro rider has a Half-Arabian 5-year-old, they could pay the entry fees for Half-Arabian Open, HalfArabian Non-Pro, Half-Arabian Junior Horse and the All-Breed classes. This is essentially five classes with one run, which saves on the horse. For marketing purposes, it gets the Arabian-bred horses in front of the spectators during the main event evening class and demonstrates the ability of our horses in a head-to-head competition to folks who may not ordinarily go to Arabian shows. We award fantastic prizes in all the distinct classes by using that same score, so exhibitors are recognized within their breed as well. For the Arabian and HalfArabian cow horses, we held both a breed restricted Derby and a Futurity that was NRCHA recognized. We also held ranch pleasure and performance horse halter for the Arabians during the show. How important are the futurity classes in the working western division? Futurity events for the working western horses are equally important as in other disciplines. They provide breeders a proving ground for young prospects competing against their same-aged peers and give financial incentives to develop young stock. I would like to see more Derby events for the Arabian-blooded horses to create a broader market base. We need more major events for the Arabian-bred working western horse. Currently, we have Scottsdale and Nationals, and the future addition of an Arabian Reining Breeders Classic in Las Vegas is positive. We hope the Working Western Celebration in St. Paul, Minn., can develop into one of these premier events. Who is your all-time favorite working western horse? This brings to mind so many great performance horses from many breeds and disciplines, but my personal favorite is my Half-Arabian gelding, Throttle Up SB. He was in the first foal crop after my father and I teamed up to breed working western Arabians; therefore, he represents everything that went right with that breeding. He also has an outgoing personality that wins newcomers over to the Arabian-bred horse, which is what happened with my fiancé, Dave. Both Dad and Dave have passed, so when I watch Rocky work a cow, I think of them both and smile to remember how horses bring so many of us closer in this short time on earth.

PRESTON KENT REINING FARR WEST, UTAH Preston Kent, who trains at Heritage Ranch, works with Quarter Horses, Arabians and Half-Arabians. He is the son of Dave Kent, owner and breeder at the working western breeding ranch Sage Hill Arabians. Preston has been riding and training horses since he was very young, and is known for his passion for the sport of reining. He has placed reserve champion in reining classes at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and U.S. Nationals.

yearlings. Some Half-Arabians can also be started as 2-year-olds. With Arabians and Half-Arabians, however, it is important to gauge the horse’s physical maturity. In this competitive show world, it is also helpful to be on track or ahead of the game when it comes to starting young horses. At times it can be tricky to find the balance between starting early enough to allow adequate time for the horse to get broke and not pushing a horse too soon, which could add the risk of the horse not holding up. How do we promote a stronger market for our working western horses? More shows with added money would help promote the market for working western horses. Particularly in the reining world, the more opportunities there are to win money, the more people will want to get involved in the sport. Along with that, there need to be more opportunities for older horses to win money at shows. We can’t continue to only have money in the futurities and limit the window of time when a horse can maintain value.  How important are the futurity classes in the working western division?  Futurities are extremely important for the working western division. In almost every discipline, the competitive nature of events for young horses is what fuels excitement for owners, breeders, and spectators. It also increases the need for good trainers and continues raising the bar for breeders to breed for the quality that is needed for early competition.

What do you look for in conformation on the working western horse? Substance and angles are the two most important things when it comes to conformation. Working western horses need to have good bone structure, and the heavier the better. Good bone will help allow a horse to have the strength needed for performance, and also will help a horse hold up physically with the pressures of use. The two most important angles to look at are the hip and the shoulder angles. Ideally, the hip and shoulder angles should both be 45 degrees. Good slope in the hip enables a horse to get underneath itself for stops and turns. Proper shoulder angle is needed to allow the horse to have free lateral movement. What is the best time to start a youngster that will compete in the working western division?  Quarter Horses are started as 2-year-olds and sometimes as long

What are your thoughts at the major shows re showcasing a working western? The more that shows could work with the working western division by including specific classes at times of most audience attendance, the better. It seems tough to get the crowds over to working western arenas, especially when there is a conflict with main ring events. It certainly would be great for shows to offer at least a reining class or two as part of the scheduled events geared toward spectators. What is your all-time favorite working western horse? My favorite working western horse has been SH Cool Dude. This horse has been the kind of show horse that every trainer loves to have. He is always so willing and dependable. He has the kind of mind and the talent to always be competitive, no matter what the show or the class is. I have been very fortunate to have him and his owner, Diane Comeau, be a part of my program!

What do you look for in conformation on the working western horse? Strong hind quarters is tops on the list. What is the best time to start a youngster that will compete in the working western division? We base this on the individual horse. Some are ready to start initial ground work during their second year, but you just can’t rush young horses or you risk physical or emotional damage. We want these critters around for a long time. How do we promote a stronger market for our working western horses? In my opinion, we must endeavor to show our horses  at open shows. It is working, as evidenced by two notable Quarter Horse trainers’  bringing HalfArabian reiners to the Scottsdale Futurity this year. Adding Arabian classes to the big Quarter Horse show in Las Vegas this September should also help in this regard.

How important are the futurity classes in the working western division? I guess I’m gonna waffle a bit on the futurity issue. Of course it is wonderful to get a monetary return, but this goes back to how soon a young horse is ready to withstand the rigors of  these classes. Small wonder that  due to injury, some of them are  not showing not long after they  age out of derby. What are your thoughts at the major shows re showcasing a working western class on a Friday or Saturday night? This has been done at Canadian Nationals in the past. In fact, this is where I saw my first reining pattern. LaRae Fletcher-Powell rode SR Desperado in the main ring  in Regina, Sask. It sent chills up my spine to watch the lead change from  large fast to large fast done at a drop dead gallop. It would be a wonderful idea to do this again, with one proviso—the footing in the main ring is often  quite different from the working western ring, and footing is critical to reiners. Who is your all-time favorite working western horse? Need you ask! We are pretty proud of our Canadian-bred, -owned and -ridden  VLQ Friendly Fire.  He is our  “oncein-a-lifetime” horse.

not going to happen if it’s not fun and interesting for them. That’s a key part of it. With the amateurs, I think prize money and prizes, such as the youth scholarships of the Arabian Reining Breeders Classic, are also part of it. How important are the futurity classes in the working western division? You’re not going to have one without the other, because if you don’t have an incentive for trainers to train futurity horses, then you won’t have a broke product to sell for youth and amateurs to show. It all needs to work in sync. What are your thoughts at the major shows re showcasing a working western class on a Friday or Saturday night? I think it would be great. The more people that can see it, the better. Who is your all-time favorite working western horse? Minding Ps And Qs has been one of my favorites, because she won the purebred futurity and went on to be an amateur horse for Dick and did well—and then she produced a purebred futurity champion and futurity finalists in the Half-Arabian Futurity. That’s pretty cool.

BRIAN WELMAN TRAINING CENTER HASTINGS, MINN. What do you look for in conformation on the working western horse? Ideally, I like a horse with bigger hips, lower hocks, a shorter back, and a topline and neck that tie in a little flatter. What is the best time to start a youngster that will compete in the working western division? I start reiners, which is what I deal with, as 2-year-olds. If they aren’t physically fit enough I don’t, but we try to breed ours so that they are born early enough after the first of the year to do it. I don’t have them running and stopping; I just get them riding around and starting to get broke and quiet. The horses let you know when they’re ready to do more. They’re all a little different. How do we promote a stronger market for our working western horses? It has to be fun. You have to have an amateur and youth base or you don’t have anything, and it’s

Arabian Reining Breeders Classic September 13th to 20th South Point Event and Equestrian Center Las Vegas, Nevada

The Arabian Reining Breeders Classic Makes Its Debut by Christy Egan

It is a game changing moment for the Arabian reining horse and perhaps, for the Arabian show horse as well, at the debut of the Arabian Reining Breeders Classic (ARBC) during the NRHA High Roller Reining Classic show. The High Roller Reining Classic is currently ranked the number four leading event in the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) after only five short years in existence. This year the High Roller Reining Classic will offer cash payouts of more than a half-million dollars. The 2014 show runs eight days, from September 13th to 20th, at the South Point Event and Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, Nev. 2 • ARBC | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

The “Big Show” includes the added NRHA approved $77,000 ARBC Futurity for Arabians and HalfArabians, slated to run midway through the show on Wednesday, September 17th. Competition for Arabian and Half-Arabian horses at the show also includes a full complement of classes, beginning with youth reining and short stirrup Saturday and Sunday, September 13th and 14th. Non-Pro competition is scheduled for Monday and Thursday, the 15th and 18th. The format for the ARBC is patterned after the highly successful, extremely popular NRBC, with stallion and foal enrollments, soon to be followed by a stallion service auction. Though heavily encouraged through the offering of incentives, it will take a few years for the ARBC to achieve full enrollment, expected around 2018. Meanwhile, horsemen entering horses will do so based on class and judges’ fees alone. There will be no nomination fees for horses showing in the ARBC Futurity up until 2018. This year’s ARBC Futurity boasts $77,000 in prize money in the Arabian and Half-Arabian open and non-pro 4- & 5-year-old classes.


ARABIAN REINERS BREEDERS CLASSIC

“The addition of Arabian and Half-Arabian classes to the High Roller Reining Classic is a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved,” says Amanda Brumley, the show’s co-creator and managing director. “There’s a great deal to attract the Arabian reining horse breeder and owner. There are the obvious things: the great exposure, prize money and promotion for the Arabian reining horse, but there are so many other ways the Arabian performance folks can benefit as well. Quarter Horse owners are anxious to meet the Arabian exhibitors. They are interested in breeding their own Half-Arabian horses and participating. They want information on available embryos, young stock and breeding horses for sale. Want to be a part of it? There’s free stallion, show horse, sale horse, mare embryo, and farm and ranch real estate classified advertising available on the ARBC website. There are also show program, vendor and sponsorship opportunities and arena banner placements available at the High Roller Reining Classic. Or simply come to the show and get acquainted with Quarter Horse owners, breeders and trainers. They appear to be very interested in meeting the Arabian performance horse owners and breeders.”

Reining competition is probably the most energized and fastest growing show horse division in the entire American equine industry. Its competition is dominated by the Quarter Horse, but any breed of horse can compete in open reining. Astute Arabian breeders and historians know that when bred for a particular sport, the Arabian horse can be very competitive and vie with the best horses of many breeds for high honors. The combination of impressive prize money and visibility at the top levels of this sport has created an extraordinary opportunity for the Arabian and Half-Arabian horse.

Here is an unprecedented chance to capture the imagination and attention of an entirely new group of potential owners in the NRHA community. And, for those who do not already know, reining is the only western equestrian event approved by the FEI and on track to be included in 2020, alongside dressage and three-day, as an event at the Olympics.

buyers, stallion owners and those who purchase stallion services. The WCBSS is designed to offer prize money to owners, breeders, trainers and riders of horses sold through the sale and brought back to compete at the High Roller Reining Classic. This sale will be open to Arabian and Half-Arabian performance yearlings within the next few years.

In addition to its over-the-top prize money and nonstop, action-packed schedule of events, the High Roller Reining Classic show added an auction to the mix this year, the West Coast Breeders Select Sale (WCBSS), scheduled for Saturday, September 20th. The event is designed to offer elite, pre-screened yearling performance-bred horses and proven broodmares in foal for sale at public auction. This new performance horse sale has multiple levels of incentives for consigners,

One of the nicest amenities offered by the High Roller Reining Classic is the venue where the show is held. Opened in December of 2005, the South Point Hotel and Casino consists of a 25-story hotel tower and a 90,000 square foot convention center located on a 60 acre site along Las Vegas Boulevard. Beside the High Roller Reining Classic, the South Point Event and Equestrian Center hosts multiple equestrian events annually, including big league cutting, a wide variety of breed shows, livestock auctions and numerous rodeos. The massive facility has beautiful swimming pools, an exercise club, its own bowling alley, a movie theatre, well over a half-dozen restaurants suitable for every conceivable taste, and a fabulous spa and salon. Brumley, along with co-creator Pat Warren, NRHA Leading Owner in 2011 and 2012, called the South Point Event Center a place where “… we have everything under one, climate controlled roof and all the fun that Las Vegas has to offer!” She also noted that South Point and Las Vegas were the perfect venue to help the High Roller Reining Classic management take the sport of reining to the next level.

Stallion and Foal Enrollments

ARBC stallion and foal enrollments begin this year in 2014. By 2018, all horses competing in the ARBC must be enrolled in the program, as that is when the ARBC program money kicks in with 70% of all stallion and foal enrollments being allocated as prize money. Currently, ARBC stallion nominations are evenly divided between purebred Arabian and Quarter Horse stallions. Stallion owners who enroll their stallions this year will have their offspring eligible for enrollment this fall. The foal owner doesn’t have to enroll until the foal is actually born and there is a generous timeframe allowed throughout the weanling year. Once enrolled, a foal stays eligible, whether or not his sire continues to be involved. Foal owners pay a $250 enrollment fee per foal by September 15th of the weanling year, or $350 by December 31st; late enrollments can be made. Only enrolled foals are allowed to compete as 4- and 5-yearolds in the ARBC beginning in 2018. Stallion owners pay an initial nomination fee, then an annual enrollment fee due on February 1st of each

year. Stallion owners also assist in the promotion of the ARBC by informing and distributing information to mare owners about the ARBC, using its logo in their advertising, and mailing nomination forms to the owners of each live foal at the time they provide a breeders certificate. Stallions are promoted by the ARBC through the website, national and international advertising, press releases, brochures and materials distributed at major events, as well as in the annual ARBC Stallion Registry.

Youth Scholarship Program

As part of its ongoing commitment to youth and to its community, the ARBC has made available an annual Youth Scholarship program to assist young people in furthering their education and in fostering their future career success. The ARBC is offering $30,000 in scholarships for youth at two approved events: the High Roller Reining Classic, and the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show in 2015. Scholarship determination is based on financial need, academic achievement, writing and communication skills, community service, ARBC involvement and references.

ARBC Trainer Support

Arabian and Quarter Horse trainer Brian Welman is a big advocate of the new ARBC Futurity. “I bred a Quarter Horse mare to the Arabian stallion TA Mozart this year,” he admits. “I’m investing in the Futurity. The trick is to get it going, market the horses and develop more futurities. If we want this to work, we all have to pitch in and find sponsors and get involved. Everyone has to be invested in this!” Tyson Randle, also a trainer for Arabian and Quarter Horse working western horses, agrees. “I honestly don’t have a single purebred or HalfArabian horse that is not a Futurity horse,” says Tyson. “Futurity classes create a ton of excitement and incentive. In the Quarter Horses, the futurity classes are strictly for 3-year-olds. It’s a difficult task to have a new one ready to go every year. There are 15 to 20 futurities in the NRHA all over the country annually and I do two or three. They’ve done a great job and those futurities keep the stud fees higher and the breeding numbers up. The biggest issue with any futurity is the horse power. There’s not a lot of stock to choose from right now and it’s hard to fi nd the right horse. Arabian breeders need more futurities and more horses.”

It doesn’t take long for good horsemen to recognize the appeal, quality and athletic ability of the Arabian and Half-Arabian reining horse. Respected NRHA judge, Richard Pokluda had the opportunity to judge Arabian and Half-Arabian reiners for the first time at the 2014 Scottsdale AllArabian Show last February, and he readily admits that he wasn’t expecting much. “It’s true. I wasn’t looking for a lot from these horses,” says Pokluda. “It was a surprise to me; I just did not think they would stop as well as a Quarter Horse. The quality was outstanding among the Arabians and Half-Arabians I judged … especially the top six horses. The top three made 73’s and 74’s … and that was legit. They turned just as big, circled as good and stopped as good. They really looked the part!”

Andrea Fappani is an NRHA Futurity Champion, NRBC Classic Open Champion, a consistent aged event finalist and an NRHA Two Million Dollar Rider. He was first attracted to the Arabian reiner because he lived in Scottsdale and noticed the Scottsdale All-Arabian Show Reining Futurity. “I saw that there was good money and that it was just like the other NRHA Futurities,” says Fappani. “If an Arabian horse is talented, he is just like any other talented, athletic horse. Some American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) trainers look down on the Arabian horse, but the truth is, that a good horse is a good horse. I rode an Arabian horse for Crystal McNutt and one of her customers at the Scottsdale Arabian Reining Futurities this last February and did well. I will take a big string of Quarter Horses to the High Roller Reining Classic in September and at least one Arabian horse, possibly three, for the ARBC. The Arabians are not so different from other reining breeds. They are perhaps more easily distracted, but quicker to learn. I like a lot of personality in my horses. I like horses that are different. You have to think about what you are doing with an Arabian. They are very sensitive and their feelings are easily hurt. They won’t be bullied into working. They are challenging and they take a bit longer to mature, but I like them.”

“I enjoyed it,” Pokluda announces with a smile. “I had a lot of fun. Top trainers showing do a great job and add finesse and detail. It helps the whole picture.” “The people were really nice and obviously have fun with it,” Richard adds. “The Arabian people are breeding better mares and better horses. They’re training them better. They’ve got the right idea with the Scottsdale Futurities and the ARBC that’s coming up at the High Roller Reining Classic in September. The NRHA people will see it. More guys like me will start to get involved. They say that ‘money is the root of all evil’ but the truth is, money is important. You put up $30,000 and you get the attention of better trainers. And now that I’ve seen them, I think I would like riding an Arabian.”

On Fappani’s recommendation, Silver Spurs has bred 2011 NRHA Futurity Reserve Champion Reiner, Spook Off Sparks to the Arabian stallion and top reiner, What It Takes, for a 2015 foal, underscoring Fappani’s interest in the Half-Arabian horse and its reining future. Fappani was the first European ever to win the NRHA Futurity and the first to win it on a Paint Horse. Perhaps it’s a harbinger and he’ll be the first person to win an NRHA Futurity on an Arabian one of these days as well. ■ For information about the WBCCA, go to www.westcoastbreedersselectsale.com.

Things You Don’t Know About Me … Steve Heathcott

1. The f irst horse I ever rode or handled was … Jubel. I had never been around a horse and she was at my grandparent’s home. And this sounds corny, but there was a smell to this horse that I still remember to this day. 2. My happiest moment with a horse was … with Millennium LOA when he finished the Triple Crown. 3. The f irst ribbon I ever won was … after two years of getting the gate; I finally got a ribbon when I was 12 years old. 4. My f irst influence in the horse industry was … my parents and Tex Greer. He bred April Charm, AA Apollo Bey’s mother, and for some reason, he took me under his wing as a kid and really educated me on Arabian horses. 5. The f irst breed of horse involved with was … Arabians since the beginning. 6. The age I got involved with horses was … 7 or 8 years old. 7. The f irst thing I do when I get to the barn is … every year, whether I have 20 or 40 horses in training, I’m always in love with a yearling filly. Of course, it’s a different filly every year, but I walk over to her stall and greet her every morning. 8. The last thing I do when I leave the barn is … ask my help, “You’re going to be here tomorrow, right?” 9. The greatest horse I’ve ever handled is … Millennium LOA. 10. The most gratifying part of my job is … finding a diamond in the rough. I love seeing something special in a horse that no one else sees and then watching it turn out to be a great horse. 11. My favorite restaurant is … Fogo de Chão. 12. My favorite non-horse hobby is … Texas Hold’em Poker. 13. My favorite genre of movie is … comedy or anything Disney. I have 5 kids, so I watch a lot of Disney movies. 14. When someone asks me, why Arabians, I say … besides being the prettiest horse to look at, they make you think. 15. My favorite division to show in is … Show Hack. 16. In my free time, I like to … play sports and hang out with my kids. 17. Horses have taught me … to listen. 18. My top vacation spot is … Brazil. 19. Few foods make me happier than … eggplant. 20. Without horses, I would be … a football coach. 21. The piece of tack or equipment that I can’t live without is … a thick schooling lead. 22. My childhood dream job was … pro-football player. 23. My favorite breeding bloodline is … Bay El Bey. 24. My biggest pet peeve is … people that get mad at their horse and take it out on them when it’s their teaching that is bad, not the horse. They didn’t explain to their horse well enough what they were asking them to do, so the horse doesn’t know how to respond. 25. The most influential people in my life are … my family.

Guest Editorial

For the last 10 years, I’ve been struggling with the issue of amateur vs. experienced amateur, as I know many of us have—we all know that amateurs are vital to our growth as a breed. But riding and showing horses are skills that are not learned overnight, and while it may take less time to learn how to present a halter horse in the ring, developing true proficiency there takes a lot of practice too. One of this breed’s challenges has been how to encourage amateurs by making it possible for them to win as they progress, but without making it so easy that it doesn’t mean anything. That is where the concept of a level playing field comes in. We talk about it on all levels in this breed, but nowhere is it more important for our growth than in the amateur show ring. When amateurs feel that they have a fair shot, all the work is a worthwhile challenge. The Select classes have been a good start at providing this, but because they divide competitors into age groups, they don’t fully address the problem—the real problem, which is the level of skill of the amateurs in the class: the new guy vs. the amateur who is so accomplished that he or she is often referred to as a “professional amateur.” If you are, say, in the 40 & Over class and you started riding a few years ago, you have very little chance against other 40 & Over riders who have been riding since they were 10. Or, especially in halter, the amateurs who push the envelope by showing other people’s horses at regional and national shows, and win prize money for owners at futurity shows and classes around the country. Yes, I realize that we still have Limit, Maiden and Novice categories for riders/handlers as well as horses in our rulebook, but the sad fact is that no one uses them anymore. If we are going to grow the breed, we need to address all of that, especially at the local and regional shows where new amateurs begin (the Nationals is another story). I believe we can improve on all of this. Let’s think out of the box and come up with a solution. To start the ball rolling, here is an idea. The numbers can be adjusted any way that people think will work.

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

Isn’t It Time To Face Reality? by BOB BATTAGLIA


Performance Level 1: Open to anyone who has never won four classes at a regional show, 10 classes at a local show, or a top ten at the Nationals. That gives beginners and new people a fighting chance against people who have been showing for years. Level 2: Open to those who have never won 10 championships at a regional or 25 championships at a local show. And maybe say never have won three championships at Nationals, or something like that. Level 3: Open to all amateurs of any ability. This is important; while the point of this system is to level the playing field for new participants, there always will be those who are willing to jump into the deep end whether or not they really are ready. This gives that type of amateur the option. Halter Level 1: Open to anyone who owns, trains and shows his or her own horse(s)—maybe with a little help from a professional now and then, but primarily does it himself (or herself ). Currently, some of these people feel they have no chance against a “professional amateur.” We could say, maybe, people who have never won a blue ribbon at the regionals, or five at the local level, or five regional or futurity classes. Level 2: Open to all amateurs. In halter, I think numbers are so limited right now that we can’t really afford more levels. But perhaps this much will give new people a place to start at the local and regional shows. This suggestion also might come with a welcome side effect. We already have too many classes at our local and regional shows now, and many of them are one- and two-horse events. One- and two-horse classes benefit no one. Competition breeds excellence. A system like the one outlined here could reduce the number of classes, which would increase the entries in the remaining competitions. I realize that this is not the total solution, but it might be a good start where we most need one. Our goal is to offer a way for new people to show against people like themselves, to learn and improve their skills, and to experience winning, which happens most naturally when they don’t have to compete against people who have been showing all their lives. At the same time, by offering Performance Level 3 and Halter Level 2, we don’t keep anyone from taking on the most successful competitors in the show ring should they so desire. I’d be interested to hear anyone’s comments. If you have thoughts, I hope you speak to your AHA president or representative, and definitely send me any ideas you have on the subject. I can be reached at info@battagliafarms.com. Trainer, owner and breeder Bob Battaglia has been involved with Arabian horses for more than four decades. He and his amateurs have won more than 450 U.S., Canadian, and Youth National championships. He has been named APAHA Horseman of the Year four times, Saddle Seat Trainer of the Year three times, and English Trainer of the Year.

Needless to say, Al Shaqab was quite proud of philanthropic and helpful ways.  their entries in this year’s show. Pyramid Society past President Henry Metz shares, “Webster defines ‘event’ as a noteworthy happening and a social occurrence. I think the founding members of the Pyramid Society had this in mind when they developed the first Egyptian Event. It is the very essence of what makes this annual week in June so special for my wife Christie and me. People gather from all over, domestic and internationally, to celebrate the Straight Egyptian Arabian

Al Shaqab Breeding and Show Manager Mohammed Al Sulaiti reminisces, “I think to really appreciate our accomplishments at this Egyptian Event and years past, we have to look back more than twenty years to the mares purchased from Egypt, such as the 1984 mare Sahaba (Adeeb x Hasanat), 1987 mare Tebrah (Gad Allah x Montasirah), and 1989 mare Samahah (Maher x Sherihan), among others, who were the foundation of Al Shaqab’s

Straight Egyptian program, and their descendants, specifically, who accomplished this year’s result.” In the open stallion division it was the recent import Baha AA (Al Ayad x Baraaqa AA) that stole the show and rightfully so, claiming the judges unanimous choice for Gold Champion Senior Stallion and High Point Horse of the show. His overall beauty and balance are incredibly pleasing to the eye, as well as his gorgeous head type which is mesmerizing to gaze upon. Baha AA’s handler, Raymond Mazzei, chose to present this exquisite stallion in a very non-stressed and relaxed style which was very much appreciated by many, especially all-breed and this year’s Event judge, Leslie Connor. “Raymond did a

super job of showing this gorgeous stallion! Baha moved beautifully, and his stand-up was animated, yet so natural and ‘unstressed’! I love to see a horse shown that way!” Baha AA is owned by Avi Aharony and Rami Vaknin of Isreal, and on lease in America to Inga Applequist of Rosecrest Arabians and Raymond Mazzei of Furioso Farm, both longtime California breeders. Inga and Raymond were beyond thrilled with Baha’s win and his stately performance, as well.  Inga Applequists shares, “Saturday, June 7th, 2014, will always be the most special and precious day of my life! Raymond presented Baha AA beautifully. Raymond and I wish to extend a big heartfelt congratulations to Avi

Aharony and Rami Vaknin on this amazing win. As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, later that evening my very first grandchild, Grayson Dallas, was born at home in California. Needless to say, it was a magical twenty-four hours for all of us!” Championship day, once again, did not disappoint. Lots of new enthusiasts were at this year’s event as well as longtime contributors. Seeing Judith Forbis presenting awards and accolades to participants surely brought up many memories of personal past experiences, or of her dedicated and countless contributions to the Straight Egyptian Arabian. Anyone fortunate enough to walk the mare pastures at Ansata with Judy in tow, and witness all the beauty, know

of her horses that sit in the pedigrees of today’s top winners in the world of the Egyptian Arabian horse. Inga Applequist ties it all up perfectly in saying, “As I watched Baha AA showing for the gold  in the stallion championship, I was lucky enough to be seated next to Rhita McNair, and listen to her tell me about the many Gleannloch greats that she has known and shown in her lifetime. The juxtaposition of then and now made a very special day even more special. I love the Egyptian horse and all of the great people too!”  Then and now. All one in the same, and all so very important to the Egyptian Arabian horse. n

A Memorable

Chilean Nationals

by ROGERIO SANTOS

The beautiful and amenable Garden of the Military School of Santiago was the site of this year’s 22nd Chilean Nationals. The high energy emanating from the breeders, the response from the public, the excellent fish and Chilean wines, the sunny days with balmy temperatures, the high standard of hotels and restaurants, and especially the horses, made the weekend of April 12-13 a memorable nationals. More than 30 breeders showed around 80 horses that were judged in halter by Janice McCrea from the United States, and Lenita Perroy and Fabio Amorosino from Brazil. The Chilean breeders are very much in touch with what goes on in the Arabian horse world. They are constantly

importing horses, especially from the United States and Brazil, and take very seriously how to improve and develop their breeding programs. The world is familiar with two extraordinary Chilean mares, the American National Champion San Jose Javiera, and the beautiful World Breeders Cup Champion LL Beauty Dream. In the ring, the judges pointed to Bey Shah’s bloodline,  as the most influential strain at this Nationals. His greatgrandson, LC Farid, belonging to Haras Panquehue and SanGreVal, was the uncontested sire, winning half of  the main awards. Two others were the Brazilian Hafati Express, by *RSD Dark Victory, and Bey Shadow TGS, by *Shahllenger.

‘ Tabitha’s Story Love, Stress and Setbacks by KARA LARSON

I Inspiration comes in many different forms. It could emerge in the lines of your favorite novel, in the cool comfort of the ocean rolling over your toes, or maybe, in the heart of a 14-year-old girl whose life has been anything but easy. Tabitha Bell just wants to show Arabian horses. Hannah, Tabitha’s older sister by five years, started riding at a young age, bringing home several national and reserve national championships in her career as a youth rider. However, it ended up being a very different walk for Tabitha. She, too, showed interest and was just three years old when she was up in the saddle for the first time. So, for mother Jennifer Bell, it was natural to buy her a horse. But soon after this purchase, it became apparent that Tabby might have a tougher time than presumed. Born in Russia and adopted by the Bell family, young Tabby didn’t walk until she was around the age of three.  Jennifer shares, “She was a very, very small child.  Nobody could really put their finger on what was going on, but it was obvious she couldn’t run really well; she wasn’t as physically adapted as a lot of kids. She had her first surgeries when she was in kindergarten and first grade.” After Tabitha showed at her first Scottsdale show at the age of 9, the Bells went home, only to go into surgery the  next Tuesday  morning.  And that was when Tabitha was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. “It was immediately after we purchased her horse that she wasn’t able to ride. But Shannon Beethe, bless her heart, would haul him to shows that Hannah was riding at, and his whole job was to sit there next to Tabby, who was in a wheelchair, and eat cookies out of her lap.  And we hauled him around for that for a long time.” Jennifer continues, “Shannon was all about keeping the bond alive, keeping the interest going.  And we didn’t really know how things were going to deteriorate or how the struggle would increase at that point.  But creating that bond was just priceless.” From this first bond, a beautiful journey began to unfold for Tabitha. The journey, though riddled with setbacks, started to blossom in the unique connections she shared with her Arabian horse.

A MAjor obstAcle

Though it was never a simple “jump in the saddle and go” situation for Tabby, the next cross section of her life was filled with some polarizing moments. “We were still just struggling with a lot of issues.” Jennifer offers, “We went through USEF and got permission for her to use the magnetic stirrups, which helped immensely, because she can’t feel her feet and doesn’t have really good control of them.  But that year, she and Irish went top ten in the hunter at Youth Nationals. Also, about that time, Jon Ramsay opened up in San Diego where we lived, and she and Jon became very close. It was going really well—she was riding several days a week and it was great therapy for her. We went to Region One and won two reserve championships on him in the hunter pleasure 13 and under.  Things were going really well and we’re like, ‘Okay we’re beating this thing,’ and everything is going to be all right.” However, soon this high was met with a plummeting low. “All of a sudden, her back collapsed.”  From the time between Region One and Youth Nationals, Tabitha’s back warped into a 77 degree curve—a phenomenon that brought with it its own marked challenges.  “By the time we got to Youth, nobody knew what was happening to her, she couldn’t keep food down, she was so weak, she would have to ride at  6:00  in the morning, because if we waited until  noon, she would be too weak.  We dropped one class and opted for the one in the morning session. But she was determined to ride him with her back bent, even though she was unable to breathe.”

Volume 45, No. 2 | 205


Tabitha pushed through. Going fourth overall in that class, Jennifer describes the scene of 20 trainers on the rail, hoping that Tabby would be able to make it through the class. “She was so weak. And Jon had everybody and his dog, every five feet.  It was such a long class, but she rode him. When she came out, she basically slid off into John’s arms—he just caught her.” As the Bell family returned home, Tabitha was hastily brought into spinal surgery, undergoing a major spinal reconstruction. With a straightened and bolted back, Tabitha went on to require further surgery on both legs three months later and then six months later. And yet, just six weeks after her final surgery, she was sitting atop Irish with Jon behind her, cantering off … feeling an endless sense of optimism in the saddle once again. On this beautiful occurrence, Jennifer shares, “She goes back to riding every single time.  It is really the big motivator to get her out of bed.  And it continues to blow her doctors away.”

PhilAnthroPic beginnings

In the winter of 2012 at their Park City home, Tabitha and Jennifer went to the National Ability Center’s barn—a place that has helped countless participants and their families connect with horses for more than 25 years. However, Tabby was disappointed in what she saw there. “The equipment was just like rags,” Jennifer explains. “For our own horses, we buy all new blankets and halters every year, so Tabby had the idea of bringing some of our old equipment to help these people out. “When Tabitha found out that the Center was going to have to stop its riding because their helmets were expiring and they didn’t have any money to purchase new ones, she knew she had to do something. To her, it was really touching to see kids way worse off than her on a horse. And as someone who really understands what it means to have that movement underneath you when you can’t move, she made it her mission at Scottsdale to ask for sponsors. I believe she raised around $2,000 or $2,500.” Tabitha’s kindness and awareness of those in need gives way to her latest selfless endeavor, and also leads us to Sunny—a new friend.

A new shePherd in town

More than a story about overcoming strife, this one now turns to something more. It all started when they purchased a German Shepherd as a service dog to help Tabitha with her balance. So, with horse trainer Jon Ramsay in tow, the Bells went to make their final selection for a suitable dog. “We had spent about $40,000 on various sets of leg braces that just failed, and so as kind of a last ditch effort, we bought this service dog.”

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


Despite the discouragement of many who said a service dog simply wasn’t the right fit for any junior, Sunny and Tabitha formed a bond and understanding that would alter the young girl’s life entirely. “It was a difficult six-month transition, but he developed a system where he’s kind of like a counter balance for her.” Jennifer adds, “When she loses her balance and goes to tip over, he kind of tugs the opposite direction and rights her back up. And if she goes to fall forward, he steps in front.  It worked way better than anybody thought, because I think he’s dynamic, and he came up with his own system of how to hold her up.  Within six months, she was really on her feet and started gaining strength again.” With Sunny by her side, Tabitha was able to go back to school.  “This dog made eighth grade a banner year! He’s been a smash at school; he’s opened up her world to where she’s not holding onto the wall or somebody’s arm or a walker.” From this amazing turnaround, something wonderful was born. “Another little friend of Tabitha’s (Morgan) commented that when Tabby and Sunny first started, they would fall down all the time, but in watching them get better and better, Morgan’s family—touched by their progress— wanted to do something; and, of course, Tabby really wanted to give somebody else an opportunity to have a service dog.”  Around this time, her orthopedic surgeon, who didn’t endorse the dog at all at the beginning, wanted to see the pair’s progress. “As she took off flying down the hall with Sunny, he was incredibly impressed and asked Tabitha to meet with a bunch of people around the hospital. He’s like, “I need a dozen of these, where can I get them?  And how much are they?”  After he found out the price, he realized it would be impossible for most.”

PAwsitive PAwsibilities

As the idea to raise money for service dogs hatched between these girls, Jennifer was contacted by a nonprofit group that had previously turned Tabby down with the reason of simply not believing that a child could handle a service dog. “Even though they didn’t want to place with Tabitha, they were a great resource because it was a training facility primarily for wounded veterans and wheelchair bound people, but they had never dealt with children. They called and told us about a dog they thought would be a great match for a child. And as we continued to look into making this a reality, we contacted the Muscular Dystrophy Association and found that most of the families are just really strapped for finances when they have kids in so much therapy. Also, the time commitment is intense as Tabitha was out three times a week with the trainer for about four to five months until it worked with him.  So it took some stick-to-it-iveness.”

in need. “We left the final selection up to the team that was going to train the dog,” Jennifer says. “Her orthopedic surgeon actually ended up providing the referral that they picked.  With maybe seven applicants, they picked a girl that is Tabby’s age.  She is wheelchair bound and currently working with the dog and it’s going really, really well.” Along with speaking at various rotary clubs, kids camps, and a couple of different muscular dystrophy meetings about her experiences with her service dog, Tabitha also spoke at the 2014 Youth National AHYA Convention. As Sunny obediently sat by his young owner, Tabitha inspired a room full of Arabian youth exhibitors, Youth Commissioners, and anyone else who was lucky enough to be present.

it’s All connected

Piloting a journey of love, stress, and setbacks, love has certainly overcome all for Tabitha Bell. Her dreams and uncompromising courage will undoubtedly break through barriers formerly built on hard times. Jennifer shares, “Between the horses and the dog, it’s pretty much what she lives for. And the horses and the community in the Arabian show circuit are just so supportive.” To feel flight in the saddle atop an Arabian horse and security on the ground with her dear Sunny, Tabitha thrives on the promise and hope of tomorrow. Pining for the day when she can make a real impact in many young lives, Tabitha believes in the success of “Pawsitive Pawsibilities.” And just like her ability to always get back in the saddle, even after the most invasive of surgeries, her persistence will undoubtedly make this a reality. “Her struggles have made an unwavering young woman who is determined to give back to people.  She humbles me, Jennifer states, “and her message is about perseverance.  She reminds me that there are so many people that are worse off than her and she just keeps going.” If you would like to donate to the costly expense of obtaining a service dog for children who need them, or for more information, call 760-953-8406 or pjhtbell@yahoo.com n

24-Hour ride-A-THon:

A Lengthy Ride For A Beautiful Cause by KARA LARSON

When Ashton and Joel Kiesner uncovered the idea to put on a fundraiser for Angel Heart Farm and Tracy Kujawa, they wanted to do something interesting—something out of the box. Ashton shares, “We were thinking about how many 24-hour walk-a-thons are done, and we asked ourselves, “why couldn’t we do a ride-a-thon?” We wanted to do something different to really get peoples’ attention in order to help out in a big way, so, we settled on the 24-hour ride, hoping to make it an exciting party with a live feed, food, and fun.”

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


THe inspirATion

A longtime client of Joel and Ashton’s, Tracy Kujawa is also the founder of Angel Heart Farm—the catalyst of this ride-a-thon. Ashton offers, “It’s really a great, valuable nonprofit organization. Its mission is to allow for critically ill children to be with Arabians and non-Arabians as a muchneeded break from their illnesses. They can ride and even show some of the horses. And in special circumstances, they’re taking these horses to the hospitals and to the homes of kids when they are too sick to get out of bed.” In terms of what kind of person Tracy is, Joel paints a wonderful picture. “She’s such a sweet person.  I don’t know how she does what she does—I’m sure I’m not capable of doing that.  There are special people in the world that do special things, and she’s definitely one of them.  She has cancer herself and she’s lost all of her family to cancer; she works with these kids, so she just understands.” Inspired by Tracy’s organization, Joel and Ashton’s final push came when Tracy was diagnosed with cancer for the fourth time. “She was going through her own personal struggles and she’s basically the sole fund raiser of Angel Heart Farm.” Ashton adds, “And since it’s a non-profit, the only way that it survives is through donations.  In going through chemo and through her various surgeries and radiation, she couldn’t do any of the fundraising.  She couldn’t keep the organization running. So Joel and I certainly wanted to do whatever we could to help.”

THe evenT

With a month to bring everything together for the fundraiser, not to mention that it was in the midst of the 2014 show season, Ashton and Joel did their best to get the word out on the ride-a-thon. Ashton says, “We didn’t have that much time to advertise it, but it really came together in the end. It was just a good time—my customers really got into it. The community got into it.  We had the local news out here when it started and when it was finishing.  Our staff was excellent, a lot of people donated their time, energy, and obviously their money—all coming together for a great cause.”   

Volume 45, No. 2 | 209


The 24-hour schedule consisted of riding client horses, 3-year-olds, champions like VJ Royal Heir, interviews with Tracy, Joel, and Ashton at various times, sale horse presentations, a DJ dance party, catered meals by two compassionate Kiesner clients, and the long-awaited dismount at the end of it all. Through all of this excitement, Joel offers, “I’d say anywhere from 1:00 to 5:00  in the morning was my favorite part; we worked all the 3-yearolds in that timeframe. It was unbelievably quiet and it was only the die-hards that remained during that period of time.  It was a lot of fun.” He adds, “I was surprised at really how much response we had.  We had a lot of people come, and then through the live feed, we were even more surprised at how many people watched; I think we had like 700 different viewers.  There was participation in a lot of different ways, so it was just great.” All of this support and involvement turned into success as the current total for the fundraiser now reaches over $20,000. With a bold goal of $25,000, Ashton and Joel continue to receive checks in the mail from all over the country, edging them closer and closer to their hopeful objective. From this excellent outcome, there is one more person who is incredibly grateful of the Keisners efforts and for the generosity of everyone who donated. Tracy Kujawa shares, “Words cannot express my gratitude for the love and support shown toward Angel Heart Farm and myself during the amazing Kiesner 24-Hour Ride-A-Thon! I had no idea what to expect when Joel and Ashton told me about their idea to raise awareness  and support for the program during my fourth bout with cancer, and riding for 24 hours non-stop seemed like a crazy idea, but if anyone could do it, I knew Team Kiesner could accomplish it!” She adds, “The thank you list is so long, yet  the words ‘thank you’ seem so small. I am forever grateful to the Kiesner Family, the trainers, grooms, staff, clients and friends that make up TEAM KIESNER! Many know how talented Kiesner Training is, but some may not know how truly committed they are to their  faith, family and friends.  I could not have gotten through this bout with cancer  without my friend’s support and the many new friends I have made because of Angel Heart Farm. The courageous children and families I am so blessed to work with on a daily basis with our beloved Arabian horses and ponies thank you all as well.”

With two girls of his own, Joel shares why he believes in keeping charities like Angel Heart Farm alive. “The reason to do an event like this one is based on the bond between kids and horses. When kids really connect with a horse, there are few things in the world that are deeper and richer than that sort of a relationship. Toys don’t give you that.  You can’t give enough toys to get that sort of an enriched experience.  And so, with these little kids that are sick, it is really a worthwhile thing to do and Tracy has devoted so much of her life to doing it. We wanted to do what we could to help her and help the kids.” Ashton adds, “I think it was important because it’s just a different way of fundraising. I definitely encourage people to do what they can to help out our own—help out fellow trainers and fellow friends and customers in need.  The Horsemen’s Distress Fund is a great organization that’s doing so much for our Arabian community. I would love to do it again next year for a different recipient or for a different cause.” n

Correction: On pages 162 and 163 of the 2014 March issue, in the Scottsdale Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Futurity Classic story, some Arabian Futurity Classic winners and the Arabian Non-Pro Derby winner were posted incorrectly. In regards to the Futurity, Tim Williams’ EAF Hesa Wizard tied for 3rd, Dusty Morgan’s Good N Plennty was 5th, Zollie Saxon’s Scarlets Revolver was 8th, and Petra Dries’ TA Markoni and David Kent’s SH Electric Gun were 9th and 10th respectively. In regards to the Non-Pro Derby, Silver Aspen Ranch’s My Majec Moment was Champion with a $3,375 purse, while Sonatinas Sunset was reserve and Hazel De Bois took 3rd.
