Let’s Hear It For The Latest Generation As you might imagine, publishing this magazine is more than a full-time job, so Arabian horses and Arabian horse people are on my mind almost 24/seven. Especially at this time of year, I am so reminded of the importance of youth to our community. “They are our future,” everyone says, and that is right, but what has struck me lately is how many ways they are our foundation for success in years to come. First, we need to continue breeding horses, and what is one of our consistently strongest markets? You guessed it: our youth. The average age of an exhibitor at Youth Nationals is 13. Not only have they been buying or leasing horses as they progress in their ability, but the ones who are showing will continue to do so for another five years, until they “age out” and go to college or begin a career. If we have done our jobs right, ensuring that they enjoy their experience and love their horses, they will return when they have established their working lives. Some will ride as amateurs and some will go professional—but either way, they are the adults of the future who will determine how this breed survives for decades to come. They will decide which horses are bred to which, how those horses are used, and how the breed attracts new enthusiasts in a world that grows ever more challenging for horses. Second, of course, is the genuine pleasure young horsemen and women bring to all of us in the industry. Is there anything cuter than seeing young children share their love for the Arabian horse? Watching how the horses interact with them is even more special! That’s just the start of what our younger generation brings to this breed. There is a lot more. So, it’s not all about the future of the Arabian horse or stability for its breeders, owners and exhibitors now. It’s about what young people contribute to our breed by their presence. Having just been to Youth Nationals, and knowing that there are plenty more out there who don’t show at that level, I can’t get them out of my mind. We are so lucky to have such great kids in our community.

“Ames Mirage was not only an absolute beauty to look at and an extremely friendly and good-natured mare, but she was the “Goose that laid the Golden Eggs” foal after foal ... national champion after national champion. She was specific, predicable and direct with the attributes she passed on to her progeny. Her offspring from crosses to Magnum Psyche and Marwan were, in my opinion, some of her very best. It was always joyful to my heart to see Mirage with Lollie—they belonged to each other, having that magical bond that exists between a woman and horse. She was as near and dear to Lollie’s heart as was her amazing sire, Brass, by *Bask+.” ~ David Boggs Sir Marwan CRF

Christie and Henry Metz 20 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD Christie Metz S I LV E R M A P L E FA R M U.S.A with Jeff Wallace

What does your dream horse look like? For me, the horse of my dreams looks like the classic Arabian that you see in the old Orientalist paintings of de Dreux, Adams and Vernet. Their “type” exhibits a silken skin with veins on top, iridescent hair coats, proud carriage with a flag waving tail and a lofty walk. My dream horses have finely chiseled heads, with huge, dark eyes, and they are expressive. In life, Arabians have a way of connecting with you via this ability; it pulls on your heartstrings making a bond. Possibly, this is the most important clue to their being special … this energy they project that creates a connection and a bond with you. If you could resurrect any two horses, who would they be and why? This is easy! Simeon Shai and Glorietasayonaara. Our journey as breeders began with these two straight Egyptian horses; they were inspiring and will always hold a special place in my heart. The memories they gave us are irreplaceable. Who was the first Arabian horse you laid eyes on and what was the experience like? I remember visiting Judy Jones at Atallah Arabian Farm and seeing all of their Arabians and being in awe. Almost speechless, yet understanding that I was in a barn that housed equine treasures. For me, it was an epiphany; I knew these creatures were what I wanted to be involved with in any way possible. Immediately, I recognized that this breed, the Arabian, is unique; just gorgeous … and those eyes— they just pulled me into this life. How has the Arabian horse enriched your life? In two ways actually, from being involved with the horses themselves, and the people that they bring into our lives. In the daily interaction with the horses, I enjoy their individual personalities, seeing their families grow generationally, recognizing characteristics and traits in them that are present in each succeeding generation. Becoming a part of that ancient, Arabian breeding continuum (of the humans) feels wonderful. From the

deserts of Arabia to Santa Ynez, Calif., we have met people from around the world, only because of this horse. I especially love and enjoy their history and the process of creating a foal, planning, waiting, and realizing that dream. Do you prefer the desert or the ocean? When you live in the Santa Ynez Valley of California, with the ocean 30 minutes away, you have the “best of the best” with regard to climate and beauty of landscape, let alone the people. Ringed by mountains, we live on the valley floor decorated by oaks that are sculptures with leaves— golden grasses in the summertime and green hills in the winter—abundant roses and flowers galore with sunny days most of the year all topped off with wildlife and a casual lifestyle. Who have your mentors been in the Arabian horse business? Dr. Charles and Judy Jones were our initial mentors; they owned Atallah Arabian Farm in our hometown of Sioux City, Iowa. After them, I would say we have learned from many people in the business about breeding and the horses in general. Judith and Don Forbis, Sigi Siller, Marieta Salas, Joe Ferriss, Kim Jarvis, Richard Sanders, Polly Knoll, Johnny Johnston, Marion Richmond, Jenni Ogden, Mike Neal, Becky Rogers, Janice Bush, Carol Steppe, Dr. Ric Redden, Dr, Michele LeBlanc, all the staff and veterinarians at Alamo Pintado and Santa Lucia Farms; Dr. Phoebe Smith and on and on. This is a community of people that continuously are willing to share their knowledge and experience. Name a handful of Arabian mares alive today that make you weak in the knees. There are just so many that make me weak in the knees! This is a hallmark of the breed; the ability to make you gasp, and your heart pound and knees weak. There is something so special about Arabians; they are truly able to touch our souls. At our farm, we have been truly blessed to have the mares, Shaia, Om El Shadream, Jade Lotus SMF, Shaia, Volume 46, No. 3 | 21

WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD

Haalani SMF, Bint Bint Sayo, Shaboura and Princess Samaria. Of course, our first two hold a special place, Glorietasayonaara and Isah. What makes you happy? Simple things make me happy, like a good cup of coffee in the morning, sharing our lives with friends and family, a walk outdoors in nature and cooking a good meal. To feel the warm breath of one of our horses on my hand, burying my face in a horse’s neck and breathing in their scent. Visiting a pasture of mares with babies and having them come up for a pat or a scratch. I love to write about the horses, their history or just share stories of life on the farm for that matter. What part of breeding Arabian horses lives deep in your soul? For me this would be the artistry of breeding Arabian horses; it is as if you are weaving a tapestry. This tapestry is alive, woven of beautifully colored threads that represent the animals, the experiences and people. It tells a story of our lives with the horses, creating an amazing pattern. Our part in this overall tapestry is but a small portion of the worldwide breeding continuum of the Arabian horse. Past present and future … if you breed Arabians you become a part of that tapestry. What is your favorite horse destination to travel to? Right here in the Santa Ynez Valley, it is about as good as it gets for seeing Arabian horses. How lucky am I? However, I do love the Mideast and Egypt. In Europe, I love to visit Paris for the museums and see the Salon du Cheval. On my favorites list is to visit Morocco someday.

Bint Bint Sayo with 2015 colt Sheikh Sayeed SMF by Symbolic SMF.

Who have been your mentors in this business? Wow, do you ever quit having mentors? Eventually you become one just from loving the horses so much that you share your knowledge. Initially, it was Judy Jones of Atallah Arabian Farm in Sioux City, Iowa. Along the

CH R I STIE What two characteristics do you love most about the Arabian horse? The ability they have to instantly connect and bond with humans using their eyes. Their beauty and presence, whether standing or in action, makes my heart sing! What is your favorite part about foaling out mares? Seeing the mares bond with their foals has to be one of the most wonderful aspects of foaling. One time one of our mares was literally nickering to her foal and it was not even out yet!

way, anyone that we approached about any segment, gave of themselves and their knowledge. I love that about this business. Reflect back and tell me about Ruminaja Ali. What are your memories with this legendary stallion? What are the attributes that came from this stallion to your breeding program? We really did not see him more than a few times when we got started in the business. The entire Bergren family, but especially Jim Bergen, were always willing to be helpful when it came to shipping

Ali Saroukh (Ruminaja Ali x Glorietasayonaara) with Henry and Christie Metz.

Ali semen to us or giving advice. We both appreciate Ruminaja Ali’s elegance combined with his amazing presence. I believe that Ali added those elements to our program through his son, Ali Saroukh and his full sister, Sahbine, and now the stallion Sidon SMF. One of the strongest dam lines on your farm came from Mike and KiKi Case; tell me why you think that has worked so well and what are the attributes that have come from that dam line? Glorietasayonaara was such a beautiful combination of Dahmah Shahwaniah and Saqlawiah lines; the rounder body shapes with the more elegant long lines. She brought many, many strengths as our foundation mare. Judy Jones taught me to map a pedigree pictorially and see where your mare was within that pedigree. Then to look at the stallions used on the mares, then do the same with their dam lines, too. By doing a pictorial mapping of your mare’s pedigree, it reveals a lot. Judy encouraged me to think that the mares bring 65-75 percent of their traits forward. Now, genetically, science tells us they only bring 50 percent to the equation. However, because of the inbreeding that went on among the Bedouin, the physical traits were set in a unique way. It is not hard to see those influences of

the past are still strongly present today, this I have seen over and over again. Tell us what it is like to go from an Arabian enthusiast with only one or two horses, to now a breeder of multi generations? It was a gradual and thoughtful process as to how Henry and I developed our program along with our goals. The first few years we had only two mares, but by year four we had five. Then they had foals and onward it went. We never intended to be breeders of large quantities of horses, but breeders of quality. We never became huge in numbers, but we are breeders of exceptional quality. The other aspect was that we wished to know our horses and enjoy all their personalities; this is difficult to do if you have too many horses. Yes, SMF is a business, but it is not an impersonal business. The horses are living, breathing creatures that are enjoyable to be around; why not do that … enjoy them as you raise them. How did you get into the straight Egyptian community versus the Arabian community as a whole? By traveling around to breeding farms and attending horse shows; boots on the ground, as the saying goes for campaigns. I would always find my eye going to a straight Egyptian or

one with a heavy amount of Egyptian breeding in their pedigree. It was the obvious choice. You must feel a certain responsibility to the straight Egyptian horse to make it better and move it forward. If this is true, please talk about it a bit. The straight Egyptian was a term used to denote the horses of Egypt upon the founding of the Pyramid Society. This particular set of horses, originated in the desert. These horses were selected for breeding programs within Egypt a few hundred years ago with their history being kept orally and recorded as well. Really, this is the story for other segments of the Arabian horse such as the Polish, Russian or Spanish too. As a breeder, you are really a steward of the horses. As a steward, you want to take as good a care as possible of your Arabians and those you breed, improving each generation. This is in order that those following, will have a wonderful model to work with going into the future, and then we have done our jobs well. Do you find longevity to have a certain elegance and respect about it? If yes, tell me a bit about that. I am not sure longevity brings respect, in my opinion. It is more about experience and integrity, along with quality of production, bringing respect. Respect happens because no matter the type of Arabian horse that you choose to breed, others recognize that you have stayed true to your vision and created a program. Respect comes when others know you are honest, truthful in all matters, and they are able to count on you. Possibly, relevancy gets lost with age and in new trends that are forever evolving, but true elegance is in the way you handle your life, by being graceful and grateful. n

Leaders Of The Times: Im The Real Deal+//

by Theresa Cardamone The big bay stallion left deep furrows in the arena surface as he slid to a stop, his rider motionless in the saddle and loose reins swaying. Spinning with ridiculous ease, he completed his pattern and then quietly exited to the roar of the crowd. He was the real deal. He was, in fact, Im The Real Deal, affectionately known as Barry. The Zinke family first became involved with Arabian reining through their daughter Heidi’s interest. After testing the waters with two previous reiners, they absolutely fell in love with Barry’s sire, MHR Muscateal, purchasing him in 1993. That was the beginning of Audrey Zinke’s passion for reining, and her desire to breed more reiners like him. She selected Barry as the Muscateal son to carry on in his father’s footsteps. 28 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Barry’s pedigree is bursting with gorgeous performance giants. Muscateal is by the legendary *Muscat and out of a *Bask daughter, and his dam, KheyarraberribeyV, is by Huckleberry Bey and out of a Khemosabi daughter. Not only is he a very beautiful and well-bred stallion with undeniable athletic ability, Barry also has a temperament that Audrey feels is the most crucial element. He is simply happy all the time and is willing to do anything asked of him. He has a strong work ethic, and is consistent and dependable. Like his father before him, Im The Real Deal is the absolute epitome of a happy, working western horse when he performs. Audrey describes what made both of these stallions so successful as reining horses, “Muscateal

would enter the arena at a walk, nice and quiet, with his head down, and then turn like a top, slide long and deep, and walk out of the arena just as quietly as he came in. Watching him spin and slide literally took my breath away. Here was this beautiful Arabian stallion reining like a Quarter Horse, at a time when fast and furious was the name of the game. People loved him and came just to see him go. Now, our Barry is just like him.” After first concentrating on his show career, Barry is now spending time in the breeding shed. His first sensational foals arrived this year, and Audrey shared her excitement for the future. “We have bred him to some great reining Arabian and Quarter Horse mares, and have high hopes for next year’s foals as well. With his pedigree and those of the mares, we are expecting some really talented and beautiful babies.” Audrey believes that letting Barry “grow up like a horse” when he was younger, played a big part in his mental development. He was foaled and spent his first two years in the lush pastures of Ventura Farms in Calif., followed by another two years knee-deep in grass out in Blythe. Never pushed, Barry was allowed to grow into himself at his own pace. “I am a strong believer in letting foals grow up where they can run and play for as long as possible and not taking them to futurities until they are five,” Audrey explains. That philosophy has worked perfectly with Barry.

From the age of four, Barry has found a loving partner in trainer Crystal McNutt. In complete synchronicity with each other, they have an enviable connection. Crystal appreciates their long relationship. “I’ve been lucky to have such an exceptional horse in my care. Barry always gives 150% and loves to work. I’ve known Audrey and her family for many years, and take care of Barry as if he were my own.” That arrangement will continue indefinitely,” says Audrey. “I see no reason not to keep Barry in training with Crystal as long as he enjoys it the way he does,” Audrey notes, “He loves Crystal and she loves him, and he loves going to shows. My grandchildren are eight, nine, and ten years old. It will be fun if one day they get to show Barry under her guidance.” Undefeated in four of his last five seasons, Barry boasts four United States national championships and four reserves in reining beginning with 2006 U.S. National Reining Futurity Champion. He is the current U.S. National Open Reining Champion with four Scottsdale championships and 12 regional championships to his name. In both 2011 and 2014, Barry was voted AHT Readers’ Choice Arabian Working Western Horse of the Year—a huge honor. The 2015 Scottsdale, Region 1 and Region 7 Championships are already won on the way to defending his title in Tulsa this fall. If the past is any indication, Barry will have no trouble proving once again that, where reining is concerned, he is truly The Real Deal. n Volume 46, No. 3 | 29

You come from a long association in the Arabian horse business. Please share. My grandfather introduced me to Arabian horses when I was very young. Little did I know, that this introduction would make such an impact on my life. I’m grateful to him for sharing his love for Arabians with me! Can you share with the readers how your affiliation with Argent Farms started and where it is today? My grandfather has had Andy train his horses since the late ‘90s, so my family and I have been affiliated with Andy for quite some time. I showed a young mare in amateur halter that Andy trained during my college years at Oklahoma State University, which was the start of my personal affiliation.

the barn as often as we can, but don’t force horses on them. It seems at the moment that they all are big fans of our family business and passion. Grayson is a halter man and enjoys showing. Saige loves to ride and is taking lessons at a nearby performance barn; she will also show this year. Dayne loves the horses also, his favorite thing right now being to visit

You are very instrumental in the success of Argent Farms alongside Andy. Please tell us what a typical day is for you. Andy and I work very well together. Our common interest is to have Argent uphold tremendous integrity in every aspect of operation. My involvement mainly pertains to horse care, coordinating breeding of our mares and stallions, and general office requirements. Andy and you married in 2012. What it is like to share your passion for the Arabian horse business with your partner? Andy and I are best friends. With that said, we are both willing to be very direct with one another. While it is typically excellent interactions, it also comes with an occasional challenge, but it is awesome that my husband and I can share all of this with each other! As a mom to Dayne and step-mom to Grayson and Saige, how are you all involved with the Arabian horse as a family? Andy and I have all three kids in

I really enjoy showing at halter and I have been very fortunate to have had some thrilling success with that. But watching our stallion Pyro Thyme SA (who I’ve always groomed and cared for) win U.S. National Champion Stallion twice has perhaps been the most gratifying.

Primed For The Future Of English

by ANNE STRATTON

If SF Aftershoc were a racehorse, no bookie would touch him because he would likely put them out of business. He’s way too close to being a sure thing in his chosen field, which now is as a sire of English Pleasure horses. (With U.S. National Reserve Championships in English Pleasure Open and Junior Horse on his record, and an AEPA Saddle Seat Futurity Championship, he has been pretty successful in competition as well.) This year’s breeding season alone will double the number of his foals registered now. The promise of his pedigree, combined with what his youngsters are showing their trainers—and what some are doing in the show ring—indicates that he is set to make an important contribution to breed.


“I bought Aftershoc as an amateur English horse for myself,” observes owner Lee Ann (“L.A.”) Flynn, and adds candidly, “but he rapidly became a big deal [for his potential as a sire] because his first babies were all National Champions. It wasn’t my plan to have a stallion like this, but it’s an incredible blessing.” So, why is he such a hot prospect? Here are the basics. Pedigree (SF Specs Shocwave x SF Sweet Elegance, by Promotion). SF Aftershoc’s family tree is so full of English talent that it is practically gilt-edged. In the first five generations, he offers six crosses to *Bask through a variety of bloodlines. Of note is that a high percentage of the horses are U.S. and/or Canadian National Champions or Reserves (some several times), such as the last five stallions in his sire line—from Specs Shocwave all the way back to Bay-Abi—and Barbary, Promotion, and Cognac are there too. Nearly all were in an English discipline, and many scored in Halter as well. Several have sired or produced National Champions in the English division. That is all reflected in Aftershoc. “What’s interesting about him is that he is siring a lot of English horses,” says trainer Vicki Humphrey. “That’s usually the exception to the rule. I think it’s because of his pedigree; all those *Bask horses are English or park horses.” Importantly for serious breeders, at just about every level of SF Aftershoc’s pedigree are well known, consistently proven broodmares, including U.S. National Champions *Gdynia, *Prowizja and Spectra PR, as well as *Bachantka, Balalajka, Balalinka, *Naganka and more.

SF Aftershoc | 2 | Ar abian Horse Times


What He Breeds On. Not just ability, but personality and trainability. “He is a real people horse,” Humphrey says. “He’s in your pocket all the time and so are his babies from the day they’re born. I attribute the trainability to the two crosses to Promotion. His foals are like riding the *Bask horses. They’re real bright and game, and they go to the bridle easily, but you don’t have to longe them. You just get them out and get on them.” Progeny. As of August 1, 2015, SF Aftershoc has sired 42 registered foals. The three Half-Arabians in his first foal crop, now 5 years old, have debuted in the English division, and so far, he has a nearly 100 percent strike rate. Davinci Reflection WA was U.S. National Champion in the 2013 Half-Arabian English Pleasure Futurity (finishing just ahead of the Aftershoc filly SHF Culture Shoc, who was reserve) and the 2014 AEPA Halcon Furniture HalfArabian $50,000 English Pleasure Futurity. In 2013, Captivating Shoc WA was U.S. National Champion in the Half-Arabian Country English Pleasure Futurity.


And finally, there is SF Aftershoc himself. L.A. Flynn adores him—and she knows her horses. An Army brat, Flynn moved 19 times before she graduated from high school, selling one horse and buying another with each move, accruing experience in an array of disciplines. Her first exposure to Arabians came when she was 12. “I always really liked them,” she says. “They have more of a ‘people personality.’ My involvement just went from there.” She has been with Vicki Humphrey Training Center, where she keeps her show horses, for 14 years. Her home is nearby, a farm of Tara-like beauty where she keeps her broodmares and foals (at last count, three mares, two yearlings and two weanlings, with more on the way).

In addition to enjoying Aftershoc’s company, she loves how special he is. “My current best memory with him is from when we brought him to the farm to do the photo shoot for this article,” she says. “They worked for an hour and a half, and he was totally ‘on’ the whole time. Most horses aren’t nearly that dynamic for that long a time.” Humphrey, too, was impressed with him at the shoot. “We hadn’t ridden him for two years,” she said, “but Howie wanted to shoot him under saddle. So, we got him out, threw a bridle on him and went. He wore his bridle like he’d been schooling all year—he could have gone through the gate at U.S. Everything comes so naturally to him and his foals. It makes our job so much easier and enjoyable.”

Things You Don’t Know About Me … Adam Rickert

1. The f irst horse I ever rode or handled was … “Sunny,” a grey Shetland Pony. 2. My happiest moment with a horse has … definitely been a few,

however, this year at Scottsdale, my stallion Sttardom won the 7 & Over International Stallion Halter Class.

3. The f irst ribbon I ever won was … second place in a Half-Arabian Gelding class in Sauk Center, Minn.

4. My f irst influence in the horse industry was … my mother. Without her, my family or myself would not have a horse in general!

5. The f irst breed of horse involved with was … a little of everything—

Arabians, Pintos, Quarter Horses, Shetland Ponies, etc.—when my family started with horses trail riding.

6. The age I got involved with horses was … 6 years old; Arabians … 11. 7. The f irst thing I do when I get to the barn is … say hello to my co-workers/friends and horses. 8. The last thing I do when I leave the barn is … say goodbye to my co-workers/friends and horses. 9. The greatest horse I’ve ever ridden is … this is such a hard question to answer. I’ve had the pleasure of working for Midwest Station II, Shada, Inc. and Argent Farms. Between those farms, I have gotten to work with the best of the best—it’s too hard to just pick one.

10. The most gratifying part of my job is … the transition from a foal on his/her mother’s side, to growing up and being successful in the show arena.

11. My favorite restaurant is … Fogo de Chão. 12. My favorite non-horse hobby is … anything that would deal with sports or watching movies. 13. My favorite genre of movie is … comedy. 14. When someone asks me, why Arabians, I say … What else is there? 15. My favorite division to show in is … halter. 16. In my free time, I like to … what is free time? I guess when I have it, I like to go out and spend time with family and friends. 17. Horses have taught me … patience (which some would argue I have none). Nothing is ever just handed over to you on a silver platter, you have to work for it and it will take time.

18. My top vacation spot is … I love Mexico, but to me, Santa Ynez, Calif. is paradise. 19. Few foods make me happier than … not really food, but it would have to be Starbucks. 20. Without horses, I would be … a lot less busy. 21. The piece of tack or equipment that I can’t live without is … a show halter; is probably crucial to have. 22. My childhood dream job was … an astronaut. 23. My favorite breeding bloodline is … there are so many great bloodlines. My three favorites would have to be Marwan, Magnum and Valentino.

24. My biggest pet peeve is … people who are not excited or appreciative when they win a class. 25. The most influential person in my life is … both of my parents. I would not be who I am today if it wasn’t for them and all the support they have given me through the years.

WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD Shawn Stachowski S TACHOW SK I FA R M S , I NC . M A NT UA OHIO, USA

How many years have you been involved in the business of Arabian horses? My parents, Paul and Delores Moros, bought our first Arabian horses in 1974. Shortly thereafter, we began showing. Who introduced you to the Arabian horse? While on a family trip to Michigan, my parents were driving and saw a sign for Arabian horses. We stopped and they bought two Arabian yearling fillies from Ernie Richardson. Being an artist, my mother was drawn to the beauty of the Arabian horse. Your association with Stachowski Farms started a good number of years before you married Jim. Could you share how that association started? My association with Stachowski Farm started at the 1979 U.S. Nationals in Albuquerque, N.M. I was 12 years old, riding well, and my father decided he wanted to buy me a really nice show horse. I was very excited about it. We spent all week looking for the perfect horse. Finally, at the end of the week we found a beautiful bay purebred Arabian gelding named, Ali Nabiel. He was top ten in his halter class and Jim was leading him! We rode him up on the track and decided to buy him. He was a great horse and we won many English pleasure championships with him, including my first national top ten. I was 13, and at that time they did not have junior exhibitor classes at the nationals; it was all ages. In those years, the amateur English pleasure classes were huge. You would have to go through several cuts all week long (sometimes every day) before you would be named top ten or get to the final class. Back then, a top ten felt like you were National Champion! Anyway, the first time I met Jim was at the 1979 U.S. Nationals and, of course, we bought a horse from him! Having shown national champions in the amateur English and country divisions, could you share

some of your wins? 1989 U.S. Reserve National Champion Half-Arabian Park Horse AOTR with KTP Estra Lea; 1993 U.S. National Champion and Canadian Reserve National Champion English Pleasure AAOTR with RW Louis Vuitton; 1997 U.S. and Canadian National Champion English Pleasure AAOTR 18-39 and 1999 Canadian Reserve National Champion English Pleasure AAOTR 18-39 with Van Northerlei; 1998 U.S. National Champion and Canadian Reserve National Champion Country English Pleasure AAOTR 18-39 and 1999 U.S. National Champion Country English Pleasure AAOTR 18-39 with Mulberry; and 2000 U.S. Reserve National Champion English Pleasure AAOTR 18-39 (Mac Baske). You have bred a good number of national champions; whom are your favorites? I am very proud of all the national champions we have bred. They are all equally exciting to me. Who is your favorite horse that you have been involved with and why? My list of favorite horses is just too long! I really bond with the horses I get to show. They are the special ones for me. Mulberry was my favorite to ride and Mac Baske was just sheer excitement. Being very involved with the breeding decisions of Stachowski Farms, how many foals do you breed a year and how do you decide sire and dam? On average, we foal out 10 to 15 foals per year. Our foal crop will include Arabians, Saddlebreds and Half-Arabians. I like to know my mares very well. I like to evaluate them from every angle. How did they train? How did they look showing?

to be evaluated from all angles as individuals. The pedigree has to be equally evaluated. How did this family produce in the past? What traits show up consistently? For me, a high quality pedigree is the most important variable and ideally you also need a high quality individual to go along with what’s written on paper. The mare has to be able to pass something outstanding to the foal—and that something special has to be in the mare’s pedigree— they have to be bred great in order to produce great. That said, I choose a stallion that will tweak a mare; I want a stallion to improve on what’s already good. Do not expect the stallion to be a miracle worker because it just does not work that way. Your children are very involved in the horses. Would you share what a typical day is for you all in the barn? Every day I get up and go to the barn and work horses; usually young horses that I own. My daughter, Ava, spends as much time riding as possible. Jim Jr. loves baseball first, but has a great eye for a horse and can definitely let you know how your horse looks and how it should be improved!

You are very hands-on for getting a foundation started on your young prospects. When do you start them and take them to the point where they move to the training program? Almost all of the Arabians and Half-Arabians at our farm are started in the fall of their two-year-old year. We try to get all of them at least broke to ride. At that point we decide if they need to be turned back out to do a little maturing or if they stay in and try to get ready for the threeyear-old futurity. Every horse matures differently, some just need more time than others; some great horses do not show it until later in their training. It’s important not to push them too early beyond their limits. I have found that most horses train exactly like their parents had trained in the past. If you get to be around one generation to the next, you can really see it. Their general behavior is like their parents. What is something you enjoy doing away from the barn? We love watching our son, Jim, play baseball!

And football and soccer. We also enjoy music and love going to shows. What is something that most would not know about you? I can sail a boat and I used to race them as a child. I also used to love deep sea fishing.

Whom do you admire most in the Arabian horse business and why? I admire a lot of people in the Arabian horse business. Outside of my own family, I would have to say I admire Joel Kiesner the most! He is always in the pursuit of excellence! He makes everybody else work a little harder!

SHAWN STACHOWSKI Who is one horse not affiliated with you that you would have wanted to be involved with? *Bask is the one horse I have always idolized beyond all others. He was larger than life to me as a child and that mindset has never gone away. Where do you see your breeding program in 10 years? In ten years I want our breeding program to be even more refined. I want to increase the odds of producing greatness through continually evaluating every variable involved.

As a horse breeder, what are you most proud of and why? I have always been obsessed with horses and what makes them great. So when you take something as risky as breeding and you put tremendous thought and effort into it and the result is great, it is extremely rewarding. Breeding great horses is NOT easy! In the end, the biggest reward is the happiness you bring to people; the same happiness I felt when I got to show, ride and own Ali Nabiel, Mulberry, Mac Baske, etc. n

Featurette Close-up On History by Anne Stratton

Featurette (*Bask x Milabbisa) with Bob Battaglia.

It may sound strange to those in the Arabian industry now, but there was a time when the big amateur engine did not drive the performance marketplace. That began with the growth of the breed in the 1970s, and there were many reasons, but one horse who played a significant role—who inspired amateurs to raise their goals—was a classy bay *Bask daughter named Featurette. 78 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


*Bask (Witraz x Balalajka)

Featurette is best known now for her back-to-back national titles in English pleasure. During an era when the division was a battleground of classic all-stars, she first won the 1977 U.S. National Championship in open competition with Bob Battaglia, and then, in an unprecedented move, carried amateur Karla Koch to the tri-color in AOTR the very next year. The lesson was loud and clear: the right top horses could go amateur while they were still in their prime and at their best. The mare, Battaglia notes, had an extra dimension from the beginning of her career. He first spotted her in 1976, when she won Scottsdale’s junior English class with Ray LaCroix. “I could see her willingness to go in the ring,” he recalls. “It was apparent in her conformation and how she carried herself—she never put an ear back—and how she just loved her job. She had the potential to be a national champion at the top of the heap.” Featurette was originally purchased for amateur rider Diane Tomasic, and that pair got on very well. But after watching Battaglia win with the mare at a 1977 Waterloo, Iowa, show, Tomasic changed her mind. “I said, ‘Diane, she’s ready for you,’” he remembers. “‘She’s a pretty incredible mare.’ But she said, ‘I’m not going to show her this year. You are.’ She gave me

the opportunity to show what I think is one of the greatest horses I ever sat on.” At Albuquerque that fall, aboard Featurette, Battaglia won his first U.S. National Championship in English pleasure. He was so excited that he carried the heavy trophy on their victory pass (which, he laments, is the only shot he still has of her and it doesn’t do her justice). The following year, when Tomasic went through a divorce, Featurette was sold to friends Karl and Shirley Koch for their daughter, Karla. What makes Battaglia smile is that the pure desire he so enjoyed in the mare could be naturally channeled for Karla. The two roared through Freedom Hall in the AOTR championship, creating the second half of the mare’s legacy. Lisa Weinstein, whose brother Michael remains in the industry today, was Featurette’s next owner, but before they could get to the show ring, the mare died from colic during Scottsdale’s legendarily bad storms that year. “We lost Featurette too early,” Battaglia reflects. “Everybody loved her—she will always be remembered as one of the greats by anyone who saw her.” n

PRESENTING THE PERSONALITIES

Taylor Mason


Taylor Mason

W

ho was the first Arabian horse you ever saw? Shining Moment. A beautiful bay mare bred by my father, and sired by my family’s Aladdinn son, whose dam’s grand dam was one of my grandfather’s first Arabians. What was that experience like? More than the horse, I recall my dad holding me up to the stall door so I could see. I would stand with my feet between the bars and the mare would rub her muzzle up against my feet. Tell us a little about growing up in Utah and about your family. I spent my childhood working for my grandparents on their 15-acre ranch. That is where my earliest and fondest memories were formed and, most importantly, where I learned to work. My family has been involved in the Arabian breed since the 50’s. In fact, my grandparents attended the very first Scottsdale show. And, save for two years spent living in Germany, they never missed a year until the day they passed.

but two stand out most. First is to bring youth and enthusiasm into the industry. The other is to utilize my experience in hospitality and to elevate the standard of what is customer service. Have you ever been a city boy, or has it always been life on the farm for you? Yes. And by that I mean I grew up on a farm within a city, but I made my bones in the restaurant business and hospitality. It was my years as a chef and general manager that prepared me most for the current task at hand; how to dedicate myself to a craft and the necessity of customer service.

Tell us how you first met Jim and Sally Bedeker of Gemini Acres Equine. I got to know Jim and Sally shortly after they purchased their ranch in Scottsdale. It was the first year my wife had attended the Scottsdale show, and it was then that I told her, “If I were to ever make a career in Arabians, this is where I’d want to do it.” That statement would prove to be prophetic. In less than 6 months, I would walk away from my career in restaurant management and never look back. How has the Arabian horse enriched your life? Not only did the horses shape my childhood, they continue to teach me about myself, and to share that enrichment is one thing I am most excited to share with my own children. What does your dream horse look like? A short list of traits comes immediately to mind: correct, balanced, refined, charismatic. But what I cannot live without are eyes, ears and tails. To me, these make a good horse great and a great horse unforgettable. What do you hope to accomplish as the General Manager of Gemini? I have a laundry list of goals,

Volume 46, No. 3 | 83


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


Taylor Mason What two characteristics do you love most about the Arabian horse? Charisma and heritage. Charisma reminds me how much one’s attitude and carriage transforms oneself. Heritage is the reminder of where we come from and coincidentally, the best indicator of where we will go.

Taylor with his wife Megan Kawasaki.

What changes would you like to see happen to make the Arabian horse breed and business a better place? Transparency—honesty in the good and the bad. Too many great people have exited the breed prematurely due to unmet expectations. Setting and exceeding expectations based upon the truth is the long-lasting approach. Also, to rejuvenate and modernize the industry is an absolute must. I want our business to become relevant, not just to our own circle, but to society as a whole. The ultimate goal would be to influence social trends and impact fields other than our own. What current day bloodlines do you most gravitate to and respect? Why? For Gemini and myself, we will forever treasure our mares. We look for mares whose dam line is steeped with type. I am constantly drawn to mares with lines back to the great mares imported from Brazil, lines that include Ali Jamaal, AF Don Giovani, *El Shaklan. These eclectically bred mares have a distinct look. A look defined by their silhouette, eyes, and, most important to our breeding program, type. It is these treasured mares that we reserve for our beloved, JJ Bellagio. Enough cannot be said about this young sire, truly a legend in the making. His potency and consistency are unrivaled and it is truly a pleasure to witness him leaving his mark on the breed.

You must have a deep appreciation for the Bedekers. Tell us a little bit about that and how it has evolved? Deep appreciation is a severe understatement. The mutual respect and regard have been most humbling. It is an honor to be entrusted with such exquisite animals and an even greater honor to work alongside such admirable people. Over the last six months, I have gotten to know Jim very closely. His enthusiasm is infectious and his character is inspiring. This is undoubtedly a life-changing opportunity, and for that, my family and I will forever be grateful. If you could go anywhere in the world to an Arabian horse event where would that be? Paris. A dream soon to become reality at the onset of JJ Bellagio offspring being shown at the World Championships. A show at which I can combine two loves: great horses and great food! n

AHRE

A Rescue Oper ation Focusing Solely On The Ar abian and Half-Ar abian Horse by BROOK MATTHIESEN

AHRE Executive Director Dusty Calcagno rescuing Jenny from an auction and just about ready to set off on her “Freedom Ride.

A

rabian Horse Rescue & Education, Inc. (AHRE), based in Troutdale, Ore., recently celebrated its one-year anniversary as a 501(c) 3 non-profit. Tripled in capacity in its first year, it offers several education and outreach programs. In that time, it has rescued 28 Arabian and Half-Arabians from auctions and feedlots in the Pacific Northwest, and has re-homed 14 horses, as far away as Missouri. “Sadly, with the historic recession and unemployment we all lived through over the last several years, there is a high demand for rescue organizations, especially one that primarily focuses on saving Arabians and Half-Arabians,” said Executive Director Dusty Calcagno. “Unfortunately, the ‘crazy Arabian’ stigma held by the general horse-owning population makes it infinitely more difficult to place these loving animals.” A domestic ban on horse slaughter began in 2007 following withdrawal of federal funding for slaughter house inspections in 2006, though federal funding money was restored in 2011. During that time, the Arabian Horse Association’s stance has vacillated from pro-slaughter to “holding no official position regarding the reestablishment of equine slaughter facilities in the United States.”

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


IncreasIng capacIty For More Horses

An estimated 150,000 horses are sent to slaughter annually. Arabians, typically last to be bid on at auction, are four times more likely to go to slaughter than other breeds, according to Calcagno. The rescue facility, which is operated 100 percent on monthly donations and volunteer time, now cares for 10 horses at any given time. And soon the rescue will be housed under one roof rather than spread across several miles at three locations. The Calcagno family will soon acquire Crystal Springs Equestrian Center, a 28-stall facility in Oregon City, Ore. for rescue horses readying for adoption or those being rehabilitated. “We will lease 10 stalls for the rescue and board out the remainder,” Calcagno said. “I never want to stretch ourselves too thin—financially or in man power.” After AHRE purchases the horses from auctions and feedlots, it typically keeps the horses for two to three months before they are adopted out, with the older horses taking longer to place. The costs to rehab some of the animals and provide regular maintenance care is steep— averaging $1,500 or more per horse during that period. “Older horses with special feed can be upwards of $2,000,” Calcagno says.

AHRE’s first rescue horse, Helena, before and after.

“My philosophy for matching an adopter with a horse is ‘Expectations must meet realizations,’” Calcagno adds. “We want to find the best long-term home for these horses.”

BuIldIng Breed aMBassadors tHrougH educatIon

In addition to rescuing and re-homing Arabian horses, AHRE’s mission is to mentor youth and educate the public on the sensitivity and versatility of the Arabian breed. “I love the Arabian breed—they’re beautiful and intelligent. But, I think they’re misunderstood. Part of what I want to do is educate the public about the breed’s differences and how to work with and care for an Arabian. Less is more with an Arabian in terms of sensitivity to stimuli, but the loyalty you get in return is so much more.” While the AHRE programs are still being defined and growing, Calcagno has identified several programs she is

moving forward with as part of AHRE’s extended mission of mentoring and educating, including: •

A safety net program with discounted rates for the otherwise responsible owner who has fallen on hard times due to a job loss or health issue.

“Ultimately, we want to ensure these horses don’t end up at an auction or feedlot,” Calcagno says. •

A volunteer training program that teaches all the volunteers to use consistent training techniques when working with or around the horses. Currently, two of the 25 volunteers help train the horses under saddle and others assist with ground work. A youth mentoring program targeting 13- to 17-yearolds who don’t have the resources to own a horse either financially or logistically, or those who may have other issues such as low self-esteem or poor communications skills.

Calcagno shares how she met one of her youth mentoring students: “Mikayla belonged to my church. Her parents couldn’t afford a horse, but she prayed that she would one day have one. Discouraged, she told her mom she was ready to give up because her prayer wasn’t being answered. The next day, the pastor’s wife told Mikayla of my program.”

Sold to a kill buyer by his owner for $50, Theodore is saved by AHRE before his ship date for $300. 88 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

“It was perfect timing. These kids are our future horse owners. By exposing them to Arabians through this program, they’ll fall in love with the Arabian breed and become breed ambassadors,” says Calcagno.

takIng a leap oF FaItH

Three years ago, Calcagno didn’t think she was ready to start this journey. It would take a giant leap of faith and an Arabian mare named Helena to go beyond her fears of being a statistic. “I was following the efforts of many to save a thin chestnut mare that was on a Washington feedlot in May 2014,” Calcagno shares. “When Helena’s deadline was less than an hour away, and no one had stepped up for her, I did. That very special horse is the reason that AHRE exists.” n

In addition to AHRE, the Arabian Rescue Mission in Colesville, N.J., also operates a 501(c)3 Arabian rescue operation.

Gloriaa

FM

Queen Of The World b y J e f f Wa l l a c e w i t h Th e r e s a C a r d a m o n e

Stepping into the stall with FM Gloriaa is like stepping into a beautiful fairy tale. With her wistful eyes and feminine grace, the grey and gorgeous FM Gloriaa is indeed glorious. She is the perfect representation of all that an Arabian mare should be. Her haunting beauty is reminiscent of the portraits of desert horses that eager Europeans hung in their drawing rooms in the 19th century, yet it is her sweetness of spirit that sets her apart from the rest. Adored by her breeder, Mieke Sans of Belgium, Gloriaa’s ethereal, almost spiritual demeanor is quite possibly the product of the perfect upbringing.

Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 7


he love I have for her is something that I cannot truly put into words,” Sans says. “I am so proud to have had a part in creating her and to have seen her f lourish. She is very special to me. Like any breeder, when I selected WH Justice for Psity of Angels, a Psytadel daughter, I had in mind producing a horse with the best characteristics of both. Gloriaa lived up to that expectation.” Both WH Justice and Psytadel have direct male lines to the exotic chestnut progenitor of modern Arabian type, the Russian stallion Patron, grandsire of legendary stallion Padrons Psyche. Gloriaa’s huge, black eyes, with their motherly expression contrast with a snowy white coat and classic conformation to make Sans’ dream of creating near-perfection a reality.

“She is one of the most beautiful mares I’ve ever seen, and one of the most beautiful WH Justice daughters in the world.” —Elisa Grassi

8 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

“Gloriaa is the epitome of what we hoped for,” agrees James Swaenepoel, who has been involved with the mare all of her life. “She is one of the f inest representatives of Saskia RJ, who has had a profound impact on breeding programs throughout Europe.” With two close crosses to that spectacular and beloved 1987 World and European Champion Mare, FM Gloriaa echoes not only her ancestor’s quality, but also Saskia RJ’s ability to stand alone, even in top competition. She opened her career as the 2008 Belgian National Champion Filly, and among her titles are an All Nations Cup gold championship, European gold and bronze championships, and two silver championships at the Salon du Cheval in Paris.


Halter Cover Story

FM Gloriaa is among the finest of all WH Justice daughters, which puts her in very good company. Like *Bask, *Eukaliptus, Asfour, and Ansata Halim Shah before him, WH Justice has become known as a sire of superlative mares who are as exceptional in the breeding barn as they are in the show ring. When crossed with SMA Magic One, she produced Barjass Al Zobair, the 2015 Gold Champion Colt in Sharjah. Mieke Sans has retained two FM Gloriaa daughters (by Ajman Moniscione and *Al Ayal AA) and a weanling Marwan Al Shaqab son, all of whom will continue her legacy. Gloriaa is currently in foal to Om El Shahmaan, therefore folding in the blood of *Estopa through *El Shaklan. Foaled in 2007, FM Gloriaa is poised to reenter competition at the All Nations Cup show in Aachen with Frank Sponle as her escort, and some believe that her best is yet to come. “She was

with us as a junior filly and it is great to have her back now as a matured mare,” says Elisa Grassi of Frank Sponle Show Training. “She is one of the most beautiful mares I’ve ever seen, and one of the most beautiful WH Justice daughters in the world. She’s a once in a lifetime mare for her breeder and owner.” In fact, it is more than that, ref lects Grassi. “Her beauty and type are really beyond compare. She is not just a beautiful mare, she also has a wonderful soul. It is an honor and a privilege to be near her and part of her life.” There, in the barn aisle at Sponle’s, FM Gloriaa pauses as she moves from her stall, her attention diverted by the presence of young Francesco Sponle. Reaching down, she nuzzles the boy … instantly bridging the gap between glamorous show horse and mothering mare. She is one for the ages, a complete Arabian horse inside and out, the glorious FM Gloria, Queen of the World. ■

I

t was good old-fashioned networking between friends that brought *Wieza Mocy to Oak Ridge Arabians and owner Janey Morse. When Jeff Wallace saw a spectacular two-year-old beauty in a video feed during the Polish Nationals, he called David Boggs to alert him. Wallace knew that Boggs was already showing a top-winning QR Marc son for the State Studs and thought that *Wieza Mocy, a QR Marc daughter, would be the perfect follow up. After seeing the video for himself, Boggs agreed that she was something special and put her on his short list of horses to watch. Meanwhile, Director Białabok expressed interest in using Janey’s already famous young stallion Vitorio TO on the mares of Michalów State Stud farm in Poland, and Janey recognized what an honor that would be. Urszula, Director Białabok’s wife and partner in running the stud, also became very excited about adding the *Mirage sire line represented in Vitorio. Soon, an agreement to use shipped semen became a discussion on the possibility of Vitorio actually spending time in Poland, serving the mares of the State Studs. Janey was intrigued. The Oak Ridge Arabians contingent set out for Poland in the company of David Boggs with the hopes of finalizing a deal. Once at Michalów, Boggs suggested the possibility of including barter as part of the negotiations. Things happened quickly after that, with the finest kind of unexpected results. Janey Morse explains, “The focus of our concern was Vitorio, but *Wieza Mocy was an amazing and wonderful bonus to a whole new world that was opened to Oak Ridge and Vitorio!” Because Boggs had a strong existing relationship with the Polish breeders, it smoothed the way for Janey, who was a first time visitor, when it came time to strike a deal.

And what a deal it was, a simply dazzling deal that provided “wins” for everyone involved. *Wieza Mocy was leased by Janey Morse to come to America to be shown in the name of Oak Ridge Arabians. She also had the right to a few embryos from the mare. In return, Vitorio TO departed to Europe to spend two years inside the Michalów State Stud breeding many of their finest mares. Vitorio’s first Polish-bred foals are sensational, and as for what happened with *Wieza’s first three embryos …

THE FOUNDATION: *

*Wizja

WIZJA TO WIEZA

For over two hundred years, the Poles have cultivated Arabian horses to breed true to their lineage. Rarely, a line will produce horses that so far outstrip the already potent potential of their pedigree that they seem to be an anomaly. But over the test of time, the “anomaly” is seen for what it really is … an occasional spike of brilliance in a predictable pattern of excellence that creates a dynasty. Such was the case with *Wizja, the legendary mare of Michalów State Stud who changed the very notion of what an Arabian halter horse should look like in only two show ring appearances. And such is the case again several generations later with her great granddaughter *Wieza Mocy, as she redefines the contemporary Arabian mare. Spanning the generations between them is a long list of notables who have had a significant impact on the breed as a whole and on Polish breeding in particular. In any other pedigree, they would be the spikes of brilliance! Wizja’s dam, the bay Comet daughter Warmia, was a fantastic producer of breeding horses who themselves bred on in the Polish State Studs and all over the world. *Wizja was, of course, her finest of nearly a dozen foals. *Wizja’s delicate refinement blended into a powerfully correct body to create a new ideal of feminine grace. When she won the titles of 1977 Scottsdale Reserve Champion Mare and United States National Champion Mare while on lease to Lasma Arabians, she left an indelible image of grace in the minds of all who saw her.

Even though she suffered from ill health which impacted her production record, *Wizja’s pre-potent pedigree ensured the


successful continuance of her family with the birth in 1991 of her final daughter, Wiazma. Wiazma was the Junior Champion Filly at the Polish Spring Show, and produced two daughters, Wieza Babel and Wieza Wiatrow, who won the same title before going on to produce their own Polish National winners. But it was Wiazma’s Ekstern daughter Wieża Marzen who was to produce the next spike of brilliance, or should we say, “Tower of Power,” the actual translation of *Wieza Mocy. Sired by QR Marc, one of the most prolific sons of the venerable sire Marwan Al Shaqab, *Wieza Mocy entered the Arabian show scene like a spectacular fireworks display, lighting up the hearts of everyone who witnessed her performance. And she shows no signs of slowing down.

THE CHAMPION:

WINNING *WIEZA Trailing a record of wins that stretches across the globe, Wieża Mocy is one of the most decorated show horses on the planet. From her debut as a yearling when she fulfilled her family destiny in the Bialka Spring Show where she was the Champion Filly and Best in Show, this dynamic mare has been nearly unstoppable.

She won the Polish National Junior Championship, the European Junior Championship and the World Junior Championship before crossing the pond on lease to Oak Ridge Arabians. Once settled into the care of David Boggs and the fantastic Team Midwest staff, *Wieza Mocy proceeded to take the biggest prizes that America has to offer. Prepared and presented with perfection, *Wieza Mocy wowed the crowds in winning the Arabian National Breeder Finals, the Las Vegas Arabian Breeders World Cup, the Region 7 Championship, and the 2014 United States National Mare Championship for Janey and Oak Ridge. Let’s just say that Poland delivered *Wieza to Janey, Janey delivered *Wieza to David, and David simply delivered. This is what we call perfection personified. This year, *Wieza Mocy returned to the show ring to win the Scottsdale Classic Senior Mare Championship by a landslide. What is to be next for this once-in-a-lifetime horse? It would seem that her sights are set on adding a Senior World Championship to the one she earned as a filly. The eyes of the Arabian public are on Paris, where it is likely that *Wieza will cast her magic spell on her way home to Michalów. 34 HALTER | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

THE PRODUCER: MATERNAL *

Wieza Bella

Wieza Noor ORA

*Wieza Mocy is a clever girl. While most of the Arabian world is focused on her return to Paris, waiting with bated breath to see the glorious her burst once more into the spotlight, she has been busy sowing the seeds of her maternal dynasty. Through the magic of embryo transfer, she has been able to triple her genetic impact on the future in a single year, while simultaneously preparing to bag another world championship. In America, the gorgeous and celebrated mare has gifted three different families of breeders with three wonderful fillies this year. Wieza Bella, a bay by *Pogrom (QR Marc x Petla, by Visbaden). Owned by the Ames family of Cedar Ridge Arabians, the first daughter of *Wieza Mocy is an exquisite bay replica of her mother, sired by American Triple Crown winner *Pogrom. A paternal half-brother through their sire QR Marc, *Pogrom’s pedigree supports and endorses *Wieza Mocy’s. He blends contemporary breeding with the proven impact of the Janow “P” line of mares, who bring with them a double dose of *Bandos refinement. It is a potent mix to add to two crosses to the ultra-exotic World Champion Stallion, QR Marc. When Lara Ames and her family were looking for a special mare for their program, David Boggs suggested that they buy an embryo from *Wieza Mocy instead. “We purchased the embryo before she came to America,” Lara explains. “Bella is everything we had hoped for. She has a great body, size, beautiful eyes and head … and she thinks very highly of herself ! Because she was born at 36 HALTER | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

WIEZA

Wieza Ariha

our Arizona farm just prior to Scottsdale Show time, she got a lot of visitors in her first few months. Bella is super friendly, so you cannot walk by her stall without rubbing on her. She loves to have her back scratched and will stand there for you to do it.” The Ames’ plan is to take it slow with Wieza Bella. “When she tells us she is ready to show,” Lara exclaims, “then we will show her!” Wieza Noor ORA, a grey by *Hariry Al Shaqab (Marwan Al Shaqab x White Silkk, by Dakar El Jamaal). When Janey Morse leased *Wieza Mocy from Michalów Stud, she knew that she had been given an unprecedented opportunity. Not only would she have the pleasure of campaigning Wieza to significant wins in the name of her Oak Ridge Arabians, she would also receive embryos from the mare. Of course, her beloved Vitorio would be her top choice, but she also wanted to try to produce a filly or two that she could take to Vitorio once *Wieza is safely back in Poland. *Hariry Al Shaqab also delivered, by giving Janey a filly to one day take back to Vitorio. *Hariry Al Shaqab made a triumphant return to Europe this year, where he was the Gold Champion Stallion, High Score, and Best in Show in Menton. Widely regarded as Al Shaqab’s heir apparent to his legendary father Marwan Al Shaqab, *Hariry has flawless conformation and the presence and breed type to complement it. He was the perfect choice to blend with the QR Marc and *Wizja lines preserved in *Wieza Mocy.


The resulting filly is more than Janey had hoped for, on the fast track to turn into the same silvery grey color as her sire and infused with nothing but the finest attributes from both sides of her pedigree. Meanwhile, Vitorio is willing to be patient. Wieza Ariha, a bay by A Jericho (A Jakarta x Destiny VF, by TF Psymreekhe). The Abel family from Canada welcomed the third and final filly of the year from *Wieza Mocy, naming her Wieza Ariha. For them, the decision of choosing the proper stallion was an easy one. They were determined to support their own United States Reserve National Champion, A Jericho, by securing a mating with the most coveted show mare on earth. They are well aware that a stallion can only be as good as the mares that he is able to serve, and they wanted to give him the best of the best. The gamble paid off in spades. Wieza Ariha is a gorgeous bay princess who absolutely represents her priceless dam line. A Jericho provides a complementary

pedigree of Arabian type combined with smooth, correct form and fantastic athletic ability, doubling up on qualities already evident in *Wieza Mocy. That double-dose of well-balanced attributes will provide a genetic breeding ground that the Abel’s can bank on in the future. Right now, in America at Midwest, *Wieza is being bred for the sacred embryo with Vitorio, as he stands in a coveted stall inside the Michalów Stud where *Wieza Mocy was conceived, as well as born. The truly great ones must travel so this passionate world of Arabian owners, breeders and enthusiasts can see and appreciate just how wonderful and beautiful our finest horses can be. It is good for our souls to see and feel, as we all love them so deeply. *Wieza Mocy represents perfectly the true art form of dot connecting. For a world-class mare such as *Wieza, it seems to happen almost effortlessly. This is why we say, “There Is Magic In The Mare.”  ■ Volume 46, No. 3 | HALTER 37

2015

by Theresa Cardamone

Central Park is a national treasure. Surrounded by the glittering necklace of skyscrapers that identify New York City, it offers serenity, nature, and a sense of community to the citizens of one of the world’s most diverse cities. The eyes of the equine world will be focused on the park for the second annual Rolex Central Park Horse Show, September 23-27. Created as a showcase for many equine disciplines, this year the show has expanded to include an opening day devoted to one specific breed, the Arabian.

Rolex CentRal PaRk

On August 3rd, invitations were sent out to Arabian owners around the world who have horses that have met the qualification criteria based on their prior show records. Due to limited stabling in the park, only 50 horses will perform at the U.S. Open. Set against the iconic background of, “The City That Never Sleeps”, the public will have the opportunity to see world-class Arabian horses in six halter and three performance divisions. During a week that includes visits from many foreign dignitaries to the United Nations, the U.S. Open will expose over seven million citizens to direct contact with the Arabian horse. In addition to showcasing Yearling Fillies and Colts, Junior Mares and Stallions, and Senior Mares and Stallions, attendees will see Arabian horses performing in Country English Pleasure, Western, and Native Costume, all to highlight the diversity of the breed. There really are no words to describe the splendor of this unique and oh, so potent venue. This writer was so impressed by last year’s event, I have volunteered to help this time around. After witnessing last year’s show, the world’s finest Arabian horses will surely make an impact. ■

ALL NATIONS CUP Remembrances And Renewal

by Jeff Wallace and Theresa Cardamone

One year during the All Nations Cup Show, a single Arabian mare gifted her audience with the memory of a lifetime; a moment all those passionate about the Arabian

horse dream to witness. It was a class at a show famous for spotlighting gorgeous entries, but when the breathtaking grey mare burst into the Aachen arena, the crowd

gasped as one. For a few moments that all hoped would linger forever, the ethereal creature surveyed her audience—an audience transfixed on its subject—and then,

the legendary Emigrantka began her Dance of Dazzle. She spun in a circle while blowing and snorting, and then in a split second, she took her handler and every single

spectator on the emotional roller coaster ride of their lives. As the crowd cheered her performance, they were also cheering the tradition of the show itself. In addition to hailing the champion, everyone in the house was clapping and crying for something

they all love so dearly and have now come to expect … greatness at Aachen! 56 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES


AAchen All nAtions cup The All Nations Cup Show, held in Aachen the last weekend of every September, has added some new features to their globally loved event. The public will be welcomed free of charge; the arena decorations will be enhanced with a more modern and dramatic décor; and there will be a large, inviting tent connecting to the show arena through a covered walkway, which will house individual breeding farms, training stable, and commercial exhibitor booths—a great new place to meet and greet! There will be changes in how type, head, and neck and shoulder are divided and scored, and visitors who register with show representatives, can electronically submit their choices to center ring as a way of comparing in real time the audience favorites with the judges’ independently arrived-at selections. They can also predict the gold, silver and bronze winners, with a cash prize and bragging rights going to the winner. As memories of Emigrantka (*Eukalipus x Emigracja, by Palas) flood the minds of many in attendance, so will other remembrances of spectacular champions. World famous stallion Marwan Al Shaqab (Gazal Al Shaqab x Little Liza Fame, by Fame VF) brought down the Aachen house to earn his title, just as his son QR Marc (x Swete Dreams) did while earning a unanimous gold championship from all six judges in 2012. No one can forget the beautiful Israeli-bred Loubna (Imperial Imdal x Imperial Kalatifa, by Imperial Al Kamar), shown to her win by Frank Spönle for then-owner Jackie Ware. Loubna is currently owned by Ajman Stud, for which she has become one of the most titled mares in the breed. The image of SA Misha Apal (AS Natsir-Apal x Nyara JC, by Nadir I) is burned into the consciousness of all who saw her hotly-contested win over the incomparable *Emandoria in 2009. A stunning beauty, bred by Swatam Arabians and presently owned by Al Zobair Stud in Sharjah, Misha won herself many fans that day. *Emandoria returned to wow the crowds by winning both the 2010 and the 2013 gold championships to go along with her many national and international titles. Bred by Michalów State Stud Farm in Poland, she is sired by World Champion Gazal Al Shaqab and out of World Champion Emanda, by Ecaho. The organizers are committed to keeping wonderful old memories alive forever, and to creating the environment from which new memories will spring. It will be an incredible event, guaranteed to showcase some of the finest Arabian horses the breed has to offer. Long live the many nations whose flags wave in the arena of the All Nations Cup every year in Aachen! ■

PRESENTING THE PERSONALITIES

Hendrik Mens with Jeff Wallace

60 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES


Hendrik Mens

A

t the risk of sounding cliché, Hendrik, tell us your first experience with the Arabian horse; when that was, where that was, and what it was like for you. We always had riding horses with my dad, so I have been around them for a long time. But with Arabians, it was around 2000 when my mom and her husband bought two purely for riding. One day I tagged along to see them at Juan Murillo Training Center in Belgium. I was struck with the charisma and beauty of the Arabian horse and the way they were handled and taken care of. A few weeks later, we went to visit a show in Belgium, I believe it was the Elran Cup. When I saw the horses enter the ring and do their thing— and the excitement of the crowds when their horses entered—I knew I wanted to be a part of that. I just fell in love with them. It seems that Belgium has exploded onto the global Arabian scene within the last decade or so. Is this something you would agree with? If yes, why do you think this has happened? I believe it has been a bit longer than that. From way before I was involved with Arabians, there were high quality horses in Belgium. Not always the biggest breeders, but it seemed to me they carefully selected their mares and imported very influential stallions, which paid off and which we can still see the impact from today. It was that, combined with so many successful trainers and a great location in Europe to travel to all the shows from. There are many great breeders in Belgium, as well as many great horses they have bred. Tell me a handful of the great Belgian horses that really stand out for you and why. It’s hard for me to answer that—imagine if I forget someone … I don’t want to insult anyone! But on a personal level, a mare like Misha Apal … who does not like that?! For me, she is one of my all time favorites. The impact that Psytadel has had on the breed, and the way his daughters produce is impressive. I never had the chance to see Saskia, but what an impact she had. Young stallions like Emerald J and SMF Magic One are also doing well at the shows and in the breeding barn. The mare Navarrone P and her offspring are winning as well. They are proven

success that started years ago and is still very much alive today. And there are many more … I could keep naming for a while. Tell us a little bit about your first few work experiences in the Arabian horse world. My first job was helping out on the weekends at Juan’s Murillo Training Center. He was a true horseman and I learned the so important basics from him. Then I spent a few months in Qatar with Bart van Buggenhout, learning about training, breeding, and foaling. He has so much experience and loves to share it (Even after I came to Qatar permanently, I still called him all the time for advice). I then spent two years on my own running a small farm in Belgium for the Oostervink family. It was a great experience, for the first time running it on my own, which I learned a lot from. Tell us when you arrived at Al Nasser Stud and how this job came about for you. I started working for Al Nasser Stud in the spring of 2005, after working for the Oostervink family prior to that. They gave me the opportunity to go to Qatar and learn from Bart van Buggenhout, who was the manager at Al Rayyan Farm at the time. I spent a few months there in 2002 and 2003. I returned to Belgium to continue my job, but always felt that I would return to Qatar. I had a great experience and made good friends during the time I was there. When the previous manager at Al Nasser had to move on to other things, Bart called me up and asked if I was interested in taking over at Al Nasser as their manager. I was a bit nervous at the time, uncertain if I had enough experience and if I would be able to leave my family, but I did say yes. In the ten years that have passed, I have never regretted that decision. Tell the readership a little bit about Al Nasser Stud and what it stands for, its foundation and how it came to be. What were some high points in its unfolding over the years? Sheikh Nawaf started the farm in the early nineties. He imported Egyptian mares from Imperial Stud and later a few from Morocco, as well as a few non-straights, mainly Dyn Aliyah. These horses make the foundation of

Hendrik and girlfriend Malene Larsen, trainer at Al Nasser Stud. Al Nasser. We had many successes over the years in the show ring and the breeding barn. I believe our strength with non-straight is the heavy mix of Egyptian blended with modern stallions. With the Egyptians, I believe a strong base with the Imperial horses and classic Mahzeer daughters we had later, mixed with the bloodlines of the stallions of other Qatari farms and created a unique look. Sheikh Nawaf always followed his own ideas, and that resulted in what we are now. Tell us a little bit about the success Al Nasser Stud has experienced with two or three of their amazing dam lines. Talk a little bit about each of those dam lines and why you feel they are as powerful as they are. What “wow” characteristics seem to belong to each of these female lines? The most successful offspring in the shows come from Aliah Al Nasser. The two most prominent Egyptian lines are the ones from Bint Saida Al Nasser and Imperial Madanah. 62 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

From Aliah Al Nasser, apart from being a national champion herself, she produced multiple champion offspring, including multi-champion Monther Al Nasser, ultra typey Marwa Al Nasser and her full sister Bdour Al Nasser; champion producer Remal Al Nasser, Rihab, Masrata, and Aleysha Al Nasser, the mother of multi-champion mare Anood Al Nasser. She and her daughters produce quality foal after quality foal. They are always very refined, with nice arched necks and clean throatlatches—truly Arabian looking. Also, Bint Saida the Reserve World Champion Mare along with many other titles, has quite a big family here. Her daughter Amira Al Nasser did an especially great job; we have a beautiful Al Adeed filly which is 4th generation Al Nasser breeding. Again, they are very refined with nice length of neck and great attitude. If you saw Saida in a presentation here at the farm, it’s a sight you would not forget;

she is so full of herself. The Imperial Madanah family is a little different; more classic looking, bigger, and solid with more power. Madanah herself was a mare with such amazing expression—large black eyes, and the gentlest character—winning the Most Beautiful Head award every time she showed. She is a mare that is sorely missed here. It is interesting that Ali Jamaal, Muscat, and Menes lie at the root of one of your most famous dam lines. Do you see any characteristics from those stallions in the generations from that line today, or has the Egyptian influence taken over? I think you can definitely see the influence they had. Aliah looks to me very much like a classic bay Ali Jamaal-bred mare, and her daughters from mixed stallions look mostly like her, where her daughters with Egyptian stallions have more Egyptian looking features. But I must say that, mixed with the Egyptian stallions, it has created a look of its own. I don’t think either one overpowers the other, but it’s more a nice blend of those lines. But for sure, it does not hurt to have those amazing stallions in the pedigree. Where would you like to see things with Al Nasser Stud five years from now? We would like, of course,

to keep improving every generation of foals. There is no such thing as the perfect horse, but we keep trying to come as close as we can to what we believe that is, and keep working hard on creating that Al Nasser look. Also, contributing to the Arabian horse world in a positive manner for the good of the horse. Being successful in the show ring with our homebred horses gives us a great feeling that we’re on the right path in our program. What does your dream horse look like? I am working daily with my dream horses! I am very grateful I can work every day with these amazing animals that bring so much joy to my life. If you could resurrect any two horses, who would they be and why? First of all, I would bring back Imperial Madanah. This mare could have contributed so much more to Al Nasser, and just because she was such a gentle character and all around great horse. And second, I would like a healthy young Imperial Mahzeer. I just adore his daughters. Because of some issues, he could not breed for many years. In these few years, he left some amazing producing mares—so classic looking. He could have had a more serious impact that would have benefited all of Qatar and their Egyptian

breeding. On top of that, he was a great horse to have around. Do you like the desert or the ocean? I like an ocean in the desert—makes the perfect beach! What makes you happy? The life I am living now, surrounded by the horses and the people I love. I am in a good place in my life and ready for the challenges that lay ahead. It must be strengthening to you to have Malene and her vast history with the Arabian horse alongside you at Al Nasser Stud. Can you speak a little about that? Well, it makes my job a lot easier! She is a great horse lady and takes care of the training of the horses and teaches the staff. She has a very gentle approach towards horses and people. I also value her input on breeding and we discuss what to do or what not to do, which is always nice to have a second opinion. Malene and her family are breeding some top quality Arabians in Denmark at Northwest Arabians. She sure brings in the experience, and it’s not so difficult working together with your best friend. It’s a great team, and I could not imagine it differently. I look forward to our future together.

What is your favorite Arabian horse destination to travel to? Personally for me, it’s Belgium, because then I can go and see the horses we have with Schoukens Training Center and visit some friends and family at the same time. But it’s not only horse-related; there are many places I would still love to visit. Throughout your career in the Arabian industry, who have been mentors and role models for you? There are many people I have respect for, but surely Bart van Buggenhout has always been a great friend and mentor. I have learned so much from him on how to manage a farm. He has so much experience to give and I was lucky enough to have him close by for many years and call him a friend. Glenn Jacobs, as well, is a great friend. We can discuss breeding and horses for many hours. He has a great eye for quality and I have lots of respect for his opinion. We help each other when we need it, and that’s a nice feeling. I have also worked together with Glenn Schoukens since I started here at Al Nasser, and we are a great team. He helps me a lot with different situations, and I respect his input a lot. We have become great friends over the years. There are so many other people I would like to mention, but you will not have

Breeders, friends, Malene and her family who are always there for me … every time I visit Denmark, I am impressed with how well they breed with just a few babies a year, and always love to discuss breeding with them for many hours. You always say what a wonderful boss you have. Would you like to tell us why? Sheikh Nawaf is just a great person and breeder. I have learned a lot over the years: how to breed, and how to take care of the farm. He is a great horseman and good rider, and it’s always nice to hear his opinions when he visits to see the new foals. He is always there for me and Malene when we need him, but he also gives us the freedom to do our job in the best possible way and trusts our decisions. Mutual respect is important to make a great team, and it

shows in the results. I hope to work for him for many years to come and give him great success. Is breeding and exhibiting a world champion for Al Nasser stud a goal for you? We are in the business of Arabian show horses. Going to shows and comparing your breeding stock against the world’s best is always interesting and a challenge. I have respect for the people who like to breed horses and are not so much into shows. Everybody makes that decision for himself, of course, but for those who go to shows, the Paris World Championships is the one to win. So, yes, it’s a dream of mine to hopefully one day be able to say Al Nasser Stud has bred and owned a world champion. It would give me great satisfaction to be able to do that for Sheikh Nawaf, but it’s not everything or my only goal, although it would be one of them. n Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 65

Marilyn recently made history by listing the most expensive home in Texas, a $100,000,000 property. She also sold one of the largest estates in Texas to the new owners of a major sports team. Her sale of a $9,995,000 Penthouse in Dallas was the most expensive penthouse ever sold in Dallas. Marilyn sold a $13,500,000 estate to the owners of a Scottish castle. Her most recent sale was a $20,000,000 estate that she listed, sold and closed for full price in 24 days. This 35,000 sq. ft. home was the largest and most expensive sale in the state. This estate was previously listed with another international realtor at a lower price and did not sell.

“Marilyn’s aggressive approach to the international marketing of the property resulted in a completed transaction in five months from start to finish. Prior agencies failed completely, to do any effective marketing of Brantley Manor, and I had to pay a substantial upfront marketing fee with them.” EugEnE L. BrantLEy, EsquirE sELLEr of a 13,000 sq. ft. south CaroLina Mansion Marilyn Hoffman and National Champion Stallion, Ultimate Bey

Marilyn does the most unique marketing in the world, with real estate exhibits at such prestigious events as the Cattle Barons Galas, the Bal de la Mer in Monte Carlo, the Yacht Extravaganza, the Military Ball in New York, the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction, the Breeders Cup, the Rolex Three Day Events, the Winter Equestrian Festival, and at a charity gala at Mar a Lago, Donald Trump’s Palm Beach estate. Marilyn donates champion Arabian horses to many charity auctions, such as the Watermill Gala in Southampton, where her donation sold for $35,000 to a European princess. Not too many brokers can claim they have sold the largest home in multiple states, but Marilyn certainly holds the record. Her sale of Sumer Wind Farm with a 24,000 sq. ft. home, was the largest home sold in the state of Kentucky. She sold a 20,000 sq. ft. home in Oklahoma for Cowboy Bill Watts, the world champion wrestler. She sold the Fox Ranch in Colorado, home of a 150,000 sq. ft. log home, reported to be the largest private residence in the country.

Arabian National Breeder Finals A Breeding Showcase by Theresa Cardamone

The Arabian Horse Association of Arizona has been promoting the Arabian horse with a vengeance for the last 60 years. In addition to the world famous All-Arabian Show held every February, the organization also presents newer events including the Arabian National Breeder Finals, which will hold its fifth annual edition in Scottsdale, September 30th – October 3rd.

A

showcase for breeding and halter horses, the show offers significant prize money, with divisions for amateur handlers and open contenders. Designed as a means to promote and market local horses in a global spotlight, the Breeders Club gives offspring of nominated stallions designated cash awards. The Yearling and Two-Year Old Futurities are for foals sired by Breeders Club nominated stallions, while the Three-Year-Old Futurity is open to horses from any sire or dam. The open division draws horses from all over the globe to vie for the top awards. Last fall, the stallion and mare championships were won by two of the leading show horses in the world: *Hariry Al Shaqab (Marwan Al Shaqab x White Silkk, by Dakar El Jamaal) and *Wieza Mocy (QR Marc x Wieza Marzen, by Ekstern), respectively. They followed their Breeder Finals titles with Classic Stallion and Mare Championships at the Scottsdale All-Arabian Show a few months later. The Arabian National Breeder Finals gives spectators the opportunity to see the full spectrum offered in Arabian breeding classes. From the globetrotting crown jewels of the finest stables on Earth shown by high-powered professionals, to the delicate beauty of Arizona desert-bred weanlings shown with palm fronds instead of whips, the Breeder Finals provides the perfect platform for new enthusiasts to be initiated into the Arabian breed. n

PRESENTING THE PERSONALITIES

Karl-Heinz Stoeckle Osterhof Stud, Germany

by Jeff Wallace with Theresa Cardamone

96 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES


Karl-Heinz StoecKle

The famous Tersk bred stallion Kubinec (Balaton x Kosmetika), whose magnificent beauty and trot remain a favorite of many.

N

estled in the forested foothills of the Bavarian Alps near the border of Austria, Karl-Heinz Stoeckle’s Osterhof Stud has been breeding Arabian horses for close to thirty years. The series of small barns and other buildings that pepper the landscape sets off the natural beauty of the area. Karl-Heinz has created an orderly environment with intentional thought behind each decision. He doesn’t believe in erecting large buildings, preferring to organize the stud with smaller structures. Constructed in an industrial/urban style of a mixture of concrete, wood, and metal, it is a very intriguing fabrication. In the stud barn, the stallions go out the back doors of their stalls each day to a communal area, where they can see other horses or nibble on the chew toys thoughtfully provided. Each evening, they come back inside to their night stall, a place where they can rest without the need to engage with the other horses. Consideration is given to every detail. Speaking with Karl-Heinz brought a memory of a conversation I once had with my dad. Because he was an oilman, I assumed he would be voting for the candidate who was big on oil. My dad quickly set me straight. He wasn’t about to vote for someone only because they were pro oil or good for his business. He would only vote for the candidate that would do the greatest good for the most people. Karl-Heinz Stoeckle is cut from the same cloth. He has a savvy and sophisticated approach to marketing his horses that stems from his holistic thinking. He thinks beyond himself and his program to the greater population and the betterment of the breed.   There are approximately 45 horses that make Osterhof Stud their home. Osterhof gained the full attention of the Arabian community when he bought the incredible Kubinec (Balaton, by Menes x Kosmetika, by Muscat) from Tersk Stud, where he was foaled in 1987. In a serendipitous twist, that is also the year that Karl-Heinz Stoeckle founded Osterhof Stud. I sat down with him recently to capture some of his thoughts.

Tell us about the legendary stallion Kubinec and his vast influence on the Arabian breed in Europe. Kubinec was very special to me. He is the only five-star stallion in the European Conference of Arab Horse Organizations (ECAHO). Some stallions have lots of stars due to show wins, but not stars for offspring,

which isn’t true for Kubinec. His foals have won almost every title there is, including U.S. National Champion Stallion and Scottsdale Grand Champion Stallion. He had a great show career, being named German National Champion, European and World Champion, Platinum Cup Champion, and many other titles. Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 97


AB Nastrapsy (Psytadel x Nastrada, by Kubinec)

Perhaps his most beloved win was his comeback at Aachen when he was named the Nations Cup Reserve Champion Stallion at the age of 14, and in “pasture” condition. The whole crowd was applauding him, cheering him, as he trotted around the arena. He had such charisma; he always had the crowd on his side. Why did you not continue to breed to Russian, Tersk-bred stallions? My only visit was in 1999 or 2000, when I brought back eight horses, including the stallion Padishah (Drug x Purga, by Gvizd) born in 1996. During the trip, I realized that not only had Tersk turned a big corner and entered down a very different path, but so had the breeding of straight Russian horses. Therefore, I decided that my Kubinec daughters would be bred to the best stallions available, rather than preserving the straight Russian breeding.  So, if you didn’t go the Russian route with the Kubinec daughters, what did you do and what

98 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

have the results been? I used WH Justice (Magnum Psyche x Vona Sher-Renea, by El Sher-Mann), then Ajman Moniscione (WH Justice x Anthea Moniscione, by Padrons Ghibli); Marajj (Marwan Al Shaqab x RGA Kouress, by Kouvay Bey), then Monther Al Nasser (Ansata Hejazi x Aliah Al Nasser, by Imperial Mahzeer) to great success. I also used RFI Farid (RFI Maktub x RFI Fayara El Shiraz, by Shiraz El Jamaal), Al Lahab (Laheeb x The Vision HG, by Thee Desperado), and F Shamaal (Maysoun x Sarameena, by Fa Ibn Sar) with success. But I am more interested in your readership looking at photos of the resulting offspring from Kubinec daughters and the stallions mentioned, and deciding for themselves what they feel has been the best cross. If they would like to turn it into a bit of a contest, I am game! Just read my new ideas for judging Aachen; it is the year of this line of thinking for me.

KARL-HEINZ STOECKLE What are your opinions of the contributions of Marbach and Babolna Studs over the years? Marbach was a big program in the 80s—very influential. So was Babolna. Tersk was thriving in Russia at the same time and was big until the middle of the 90s. Their contributions now seem from very long ago. Why go to Poland if you don’t breed Polish horses? I go to Poland because their marketing is par excellence, and I learn more every visit. I appreciate the longevity of their successes and the many horses they breed who represent, in my opinion, a complete horse. The Poles breed for a strong, athletic, beautiful horse, which is why they are so successful. Pianissima (Gazal Al Shaqab x Pianosa, by Eukaliptus) is my all-time favorite example of a complete horse—she is simply perfect.  Who are your favorite horses still alive that you don’t own? Pianissima, of course, and Marwan Al Shaqab (Gazal Al Shaqab x Little Liza Fame, by Fame VF) for sure. Marwan Al Shaqab has been the most influential stallion for the last eight years in the development

of Arabian horses around the world, and Pianissima … Pianissima is what a horse should be in every way. By the way, I have not judged her, nor could I, as the conflict I speak of in this interview is simply too big—I love her! Do you enjoy being a judge and if so, why? Judging is a very important experience for me. It is extremely hard work if taken seriously. When I judge a show, I consider it work, not a holiday. What do you look for in a judge? I look for a person who is open and transparent to anyone, and who is willing to expose his conflicts of interests to the world, not just to himself and one other. What do you think about trainers being judges? Trainers are the most qualified people for it, but like everything, there are two sides to every coin. Even though they are the most qualified in my mind, they are also walking and breathing masses of conflicts of interest—enough said.  What are your opinions of the different judging systems around the world? The best system in the world for judging horses is the one we used to judge the 2015 Arabian Breeders World Cup show in Las Vegas.

Kubinec winning the title of Reserve Champion Stallion at the 2002 All Nations Cup.

100 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

What is the most important issue we need to address to ensure success going forward for the Arabian breed? In everyday life, judges take oaths and swear to be fair and honest, so I love the Las Vegas show approach. There, the judges sign a contract to try to create honesty and fairness. I respect the committee and their approach to make the event both great and fair, but it doesn’t go far enough. Judges are only human, which is why they sometimes fail. We expect that they will resist all of the incentives dangling in front of them, but they need our help to create a system of accountability,


Karl-Heinz StoecKle

not just our criticism. Every judge should divulge their conflicts of interest in a sworn affidavit; that all known conflicts havebeen revealed and that they pledge to uphold truth and fairness, and not be influenced by potential conflicts.

Has involvement from the Middle East been good for the Arabian market? Yes! But for some of the breeders, owners, trainers and judges, the temptation of money was too great to handle this development in a trustful and responsible way.

If they lie, or do not do what they said they would, then, like in Germany, they would go to jail or an equally strong penalty would apply. This should be a global, universal policy change that will build accountability and trust. If self-interest isn’t made accountable, then it will always be out of hand. It doesn’t help the judges to sit back and criticize their actions while their self-interest plays out unpunished. If we rebuild trust we have a future.

What is the biggest mistake you see breeders making today? Allowing trainers to buy their best horse at the right time, meaning when no one knows how good it is yet except the trainer and breeder. The trainer then sells it for ten times that much and pockets the profits. Breeders should advertise through outlets like Arabian Horse Times and sell their horses themselves with the help of trainers, but don’t sell to trainers directly.   You are a man of strong opinions and convictions, so what are the things you DO NOT want to talk about? Me! I prefer not to talk about myself. What we are doing here is what I prefer, talking about things far more current and important to the present and future, not only for the Arabian horse, but for all of us, period. n

As you got on the plane to leave after judging in Las Vegas earlier this year, what two things were most on your mind? First, the quality of the horses exhibited during the show was amazing and second, I decided to take a break from judging!

grounds, finely appointed VIP areas and elegant table service added to the glamour of the main event. The exhibitors responded by bringing entries of exceptional quality. 102 |HARABIAN 102 alter | ARABIAN HORSE HORSE TIMES TIMES

Stealing away the collective breath of the crowd was the Gold Junior Champion Filly and overall Best in Show, Rewayah Athbah, a filly of deer-like grace and perfect breed type, beautifully shown by Tom Schoukens for owner and breeder Athbah Stud. Sired by EKS Alihandro, son to the dazzling World Champion Marwan Al Shaqab, and out of the WH Justice mare Fedora RG, this bay beauty has a self-awareness that dominates her presence. She is as captivating in motion as she is in a casual pose, and will likely be earning her fair share of additional titles in the future. Gold Junior Champion Colt AJ Azzam (AJ Mardan x Ysadora, by Marwan Al Shaqab) continued his winning ways, adding the Elran Arabian Cup to earlier 2015 championships including Wels International Gold Champion Yearling Colt and Best in Show. Bred and owned by Ajman Stud, AJ Azzam has a perfect body with exquisite breed type and beautiful carriage. L Farahdibah, is a grey beauty sired by WH Justice and out of the Ibn Halim daughter Feemi. Beautifully presented by Raphael Curti, she brought home the

Gold Senior Champion Mare award for owner Ronen Braver. L Farahdibah is a lovely mare, with femininity and power in equal supply. The Silver Champion in the class, the burnished chestnut Rohara Rebecca, has two close-up crosses to *Padron through her sire Magnum Psyche and her dam Somewhere Mi Love, a *Padron daughter. Gold Champion Senior Stallion Aja Angelo thinks a lot of himself, and with good reason. Also sired by WH Justice, Aja Angelo is out of the Ruger AMW mare Aja Aaisha. The impressive showing by WH Justice as the sire or grandsire of three gold champions at this show alone is a testament to his pre-potent power. Aja Angelo also represents a magnificent Aja Arabians female line that has produced many international champions. As the last class was called and the final ribbons and trophies awarded, everyone had that familiar, bittersweet feeling that comes with the end of a great experience. Fortunately, with it also comes the comfort of knowing that 2016 will bring another visit to the fairy tale experience that is the Elran Arabian Cup. Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 103

PRESENTING THE PERSONALITIES

Marianne Tengstedt Te n g s t e d t A r a b i a n s , D e n m a r k with Jeff Wallace

110 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES


Marianne TengsTedT

Marianne, tell us what it is that you love about judging the Arabian horse year after year? It gives me the chance to follow the breed I love so much— all from first row! As a judge, you always have the best view. I also like to meet up with other people all over the globe with the same common interest, the fantastic Arabian horse. What was it like to see your stallion Fire Fighter end up in one of the Polish State studs for breeding? For me, first of all, it is a great honor and it’s a recognition of my breeding program. I have always admired the Polish people for their breeding programs, and having a chance to contribute to that (if only a little bit) is what most breeders dream about. Do you have a favorite son or daughter that Fire Fighter produced at Bialka State Stud? If yes, which one is it and why? This is too difficult to answer; I have not yet seen them all! Throughout your judging career, who would you consider to be your most valuable mentors? Tell us a little bit about what they taught you and what your relationship with them was like. When I was very young, I was working in my free time at a stud farm for Arabian horses. I met an expert in horses, Mrs. Anna Aaby, 40 years ago. She was born in Sweden and came from a home where horse breeding had been the passion of her whole family. She had worked with horses and pedigrees all her life. She showed interest in me and asked me to join her when she went judging. She judged all horse breeds. Anna taught me to be objective and always start looking at a horse in a positive way. Her advice to me was, “You will never be too old to learn something new, so always keep your mind open and learn from the ones you admire.” I tried my best, and have been listening to many Arabian horse discussions over the years, from many great horse people. Mr. Maxwell, Mr. Jörgen Frederiksen, the Mertz family of Om el Arab, Mrs. Brigitta Foch, Mrs. Ursula Roberts, Dr. Nagel, and many more Arabian horse experts.

Of course, we want to know a couple of favorite judging moments on an emotional level and a couple of very funny instances. I have so many lovely memories from my judging around the globe, but one of my most emotional moments was in Aachen 1999—my first time judging there—when the mare class came into the arena, one fantastic mare after the other. At that point, I had tears in my eyes and felt humbled; I could not understand how someone had chosen “little” me to stand in the ring and try to judge these amazing horses. I felt a big responsibility, but of course, again I enjoyed the horses from the first row. Another great moment for me was when I judged Paris for the first time. When the judges were introduced, they played the anthem from my country, Denmark. Again, with a tear in my eye, I asked myself, “Why me?! As for funny moments, I have had many, but as is often the case, to appreciate them you had to be present. But yes, I have had many good laughs with my judging colleagues. How has your view of the Arabian horse changed over the years? Are there characteristics and/or faults that mattered more to you at one point in time than they do today? Meaning, do you evolve as a judge? Well, yes and how! The breed as such, over the years, has changed quite a lot. Nowadays, we have horses that must “have it all” to become a champion. With the start of using frozen semen worldwide, the breed has become more similar in different parts of the world. I still have my “good old” style of horses that melt my heart. And also, I can live with a fault on a horse if the rest is extremely good. You shared in Stroghen that you have been a foster parent for many years; tell us what that experience has been like for you. I was born and raised in a city and have always had a horse at a riding school (my clever parents pressed for me to have a proper education). So, I studied for some years and became a chemist, working in laboratories for some years, but always with a dream to be able to have a farm

with Arabian horses. 25 years ago, we got the opportunity to purchase a farm that was just right for Arabians. There were some spare rooms on the farm, and I thought, why not fill them with some nice kids that need a safe place to be? Denmark is a lovely country with a high standard of living. Nevertheless, there was and is a need, for families that are willing to share their homes and lives with kids who are in need of some stability. Over the years, we have always had a minimum of two kids living with us. 112 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

All-together, it adds up to more than 12 and we still have contact with most of them, so for Christmas we always have the house full. Our own daughter, Sara, has been raised with all these brothers and sisters. She also has a good education (as requested of her parents). She has a degree from university in History and Religion. She has her own family and they live on a farm built in 1864. Her interest for horses has always been big, and yesterday I drove the first two horses out to her farm, so soon she will be breeding Arabians with my lines.


Marianne TengsTedT

MARIANNE TENGSTEDT What does your dream horse look like? I have met many dream horses, but most of them are much too expensive and not mine. If you could resurrect any two horses, who would they be and why? Difficult question, but I think *El Shaklan and *Ali Jamaal. I love what those two horses have added to the breed, and their lines can be found worldwide. How has the Arabian horse enriched your life? I cannot imagine living without them. I have so much to be grateful for, thanks to the amazing Arabian horse. What makes you happy? I’m generally a happy person, and I try to make others happy, too. My kids, newborn foals, thinking of next year’s foals, walking my dogs, listening to the horses eating their hay on a rainy day, spending time with a few dear friends, and so on.

in Poland. Pilarka and Bandola were my favorites at that time. Also, I visited Om el Arab in Germany quite a lot. I saw *El Shaklan as a colt and even now I love these lines. Recently, ZT Shakfantasy arrived at La Movida—an elderly horse, but still one of my favorites. He is very classic in style. Aachen is a very special show as its history and tradition are amazing. What makes Aachen so special, and in particular, special to you? For me, Aachen is indeed special. I have attended almost every year. In 1983 I showed a filly to a class win, which was a great experience for me at that time. 16 years later, I was invited to judge the show in 1999. This year, it will be the 7th time I have the honor of being in center ring again—first row to all the fantastic horses! Many, many great horses have walked into that ring, and many, many special moments I have spent in Aachen. n

What is your favorite horse destination to travel to? I have several special places: for seeing lots of top horses, the Middle East; in South America I enjoyed the special atmosphere. I once visited Lady Gina in Argentina. I had a long ride on one of her fantastic mares out on the pampas with the gauchos. La Movida in Austria is a must for their interesting breeding program, and I love the nature in the UK and their horsemanship. Do you like the desert or the ocean? I live 4 km from the North Sea, so I’m used to the ocean. For me, this is home. The desert is fascinating—to sit in a tent at sunset, drinking tea, is also very special; but if I had to choose, I would stay by the sea. When you first began your life with Arabian horses, what European breeders impressed you the most and why? As a Scandinavian and with the influence from Poland in our breeding programs, it is the State Studs Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 113

ach event held during the long show season is stamped with its own special flavor. The West Coast Cup in Belgium is the delicious effort of Koenraad Detailleur and his amazing family. Every one of them was fully involved in some way in a most ambitious and ongoing family undertaking. They take the utmost pride in making sure that every attendee has an amazing experience. The cavalcade of nations represented by the horses chosen as champions was a potent illustration of the globalization of the Arabian industry. They were bred or owned by farms located in Belgium, Dubai, Germany, Great Britain, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Switzerland, the United States, and more! Hanaya Stud, in an impressive showing, swept the straight Egyptian junior championships with Hanaya Farfoura and Hanaya Karam, both sired by Nayla Hayek’s impressive young stallion Kenz Al Baydaa. Hayek’s faith in him and his abilities to cross favorably with the Hanaya mares is being justly rewarded. Not to be outdone, Wasfeyya El Gabry added to the Hanaya harvest by reaping first place honors in a very tough straight

Gold Junior Champion Colt Cadance PA was a sensation in elite shows rings of America the last few years, bringing home the 2013 Arabian National Breeder Finals Junior Champion Colt and the 2014 United States National Champion Two-Year Old Colt titles and he shows no sign of slowing down based on this performance. Bred by Pegasus Arabians, in the U.S., with double-Versace close up in his pedigree, Cadance PA is a real scene-stealer in the arena for his owner Al Saqran Stud, Kuwait. The Gold Junior Champion Filly was a really beautiful direct daughter of El Palacio VO, the effervescent Bint Hazy Al Khalediah. El Palacio VO is by the prolific sire of champions Al Lahab, a Laheeb son bred in Israel by Ariela Arabians and is out of the incredible El Dorada, the Polish sensation who earned Polish, European, All Nations Cup and U.

Aja Justafire was bred in Great Britain by Mr. & Mrs. Hickford, and is owned by the Asayel Stud of Kuwait. With two doses of Padrons Psyche and *El Shaklan in his pedigree, he is loaded with Arabian type. Gold Senior Champion Mare D Reem also boasts lots of type on both sides of her pedigree, with double-*Padron through her sire Ajman Moniscione and *Morafic through her dam, Kastilia M.A.F. As a result, she has a very extreme head that adds to her reputation as a crowd favorite. Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 115

Markhisa represents the perfect blend of Kuhailan and Saklawi I bloodlines, performance and beauty. Her sire, Marwan Al Shaqab was the perfect cross for her dam, Nesj El Khisaya, herself a daughter of Khidar. Her superior quality and fine show attitude make it a certainty that she will be earning more accolades in the future.

World Travels with Jeff Wallace

European Summer Tour - July 2015 The European Summer Tour has been an experience like no other, a thrill ride, a dream come true, and an unprecedented opportunity to learn more about the diverse breeders who make up the global Arabian community. Lara and I set out together on this journey into the unknown with high hopes that it would be the conduit for deeper understanding between all Arabian horse fanciers, and give us further exposure to the exciting things that are happening with our breed all over the world.

Now that I have settled into the rhythm of the tour, I can say that I have been bowled over by the overwhelming support and encouragement that has been given to me. People have opened up their homes and barns to me, being nothing but gracious. At every show or event that I attend, the organizers go out of their way to see that I have everything I need. It provides me with a sense of home and family in otherwise unfamiliar environments, and I appreciate the efforts made on my behalf. By doing so, they are contributing to my growing global awareness, and I thank them so very much. As I said last month, the more we know about each other, the more we grow collectively.

The more I travel, the more aware I have become of the universal ties that bind us together. In an industry that is based on competition to a large degree, our common love for the Arabian horse unites us in the end. We are a community of people who vie for the same trophies, but when the chips are down, we always band together. Like family, we are there for each other. I think that is because our commonalities are rooted in a love for something so pure and good. We are all so fortunate we can dip into the well of that love each and every day. It makes better people out of us. When I think about the variances that I perceive between us, I see them more as regional differences. Throughout nature, slight adaptations occur over time that creates subtle changes in appearance or behavior. They are often prompted by a changed environment as with migrating species, with future generations developing as similar but different creatures. People have cultural differences that color our behaviors, habits and traditions, which in turn makes us similar, but unique in our own discernable ways. I am humbled and honored to be in the position of continuing to travel to as many events and farms as I possibly can in the next few months. With the continued support of our amazing sponsors and friends, I will have many more opportunities to meet new people and promote our breed, all the while adding to a priceless education in the contemporary Arabian horse. Thank you once again, for joining Arabian Horse Times and my European Summer Tour of 2015! I can hardly wait for the next chapter to unfold! —Jeff Wallace

Ariela ArabiansThe Arabian horse community has a wealth of amazing, generous people who share a love for our beautiful horses. A stellar example of that generous spirit is evident in longtime owners Eitan and Ariela Wertheimer. When they decided to retire from the business, they made it possible for ownership of the farm to transfer to Chen Kedar, who had served as manager and public liaison for over 20 years. She was a huge reason for its success. When Chen speaks of Eitan Wertheimer, it is clear that she holds him in the highest regard. Chen and I established a friendship over the phone a few years back, and have been planning my visit ever since! At last, I was able to accept her kind invitation for my first trip to Israel. From the first moment I arrived, I was blown away by the warmth and kindness of Chen, her husband Eli Kahloon, and their adorable young son, Daniel. Even Fonzie the dog was charming! Chen went out of her way to be accommodating, with effortless grace. Upon meeting Eli at the door, I admired his haircut as we were shaking hands, lamenting that I hadn’t had mine done

before my trip. Five minutes later I was in the car, being whisked from the serenity of the farm, to a fabulous, upbeat hair salon with a New York City atmosphere! I will never forget that extra kindness. The whole trip played out that way. The priorities at Ariela are in very good order. It is at least as important to create camaraderie amongst friends and neighbors, as it is to have commercial success. Good friends have the opportunity to purchase a percentage of some Ariela horses, allowing them the experience of horse ownership as part of a familial group. There was a whole lot of eating, drinking and just plain hanging out with neighbors on a daily basis, with tremendous warmth evident between everyone. They have fun! Chen has an incredible farm manager in Mansour Habaka. Focused and compassionate, he provides amazing care to the twodozen horses that grace the Ariela pastures. I have come to consider Chen Kedar as one of the top five breeders of straight Egyptian horses on the planet. She operates a true breeding program aimed at producing complete horses, much as Barbara Griffith did at Imperial Arabians years ago in America. Like Barbara, Chen’s straight Egyptian horses can “play with the big boys,” that is, take on any horse of any purebred strain and come out on top. She is a smart breeder and manager, sending out her horses for training with some of the best horsemen in the business: Uri Shaked in Israel, Tom Oben, Giacomo Capacci, and Raphael Curti, giving Ariela a significant presence in the show rings of Europe and further abroad.

Uri ShakedTall and handsome, this young Israeli trainer is universally loved. He is highly valued by Chen and Eloki, and is a very high quality guy. He has been winning big in Europe, and is developing a significant following. Because they were on holiday from school, there were quite a few eager teenagers orbiting around him, happy to be in his sphere. Here, too, the vibe was all about enjoying friendships cemented through love of the Arabian horse. Uri appreciates the natural horsemanship techniques practiced by some old-time American cowboys, and lists the documentary of “Horse Whisperer” Buck Brannaman as a favorite film. Regardless, he is known for having happy horses in his care. He showed us several magnificent animals, including a stunning yearling WH Justice granddaughter out of an Ariela-bred mare. And of course, the gorgeous, gleaming Eternity Ibn Navarrone-D, who wowed the crowd a few years ago winning the Stallion Gold Championship at the Belgian Nationals in 2012 at the age of 15. He still looks incredible!

The gang’s all here at Uri Shaked’s.

Sharon ShusterI must include Chen’s friend and neighbor, Sharon Shuster. I simply loved her. She is completely down to earth, and loves horses through and through. The land was a former kibbutz, and has an Old West feel, with wooden corrals and a more rustic feeling. It’s no wonder, since Sharon lived in Nebraska for a while, before bringing her cowboy boyfriend to Israel! It is a very cool horse set up, and she is a very cool woman to operate it.

Jerusalem Tour-

I never imagined that I would ever have the opportunity to tour Old Jerusalem. But due to Chen’s impeccable style as a hostess, she had arranged everything! It was simply fascinating. The whole city was intriguing, sliced as it is into concentrations of religions or ethnicities. Chen was an amazing guide and we saw so much! In addition to iconic sites such as the location of the Last Supper or David’s tomb, we saw a couple who were getting married who planned to honeymoon in the Pacific Northwest in America! My opinion of the Israeli people is based on all of the wonderful folks I encountered there. Wonderful, openminded people, great food, and great friendships seem to be the norm. In some ways, it reminds me of the situation that Poland faced, always being yanked into conflicts. The people of this region suffer the same political fate.

What an amazing day touring Old Jerusalem …

Gold Junior Champion Colt AJ Azzam also causes a stir wherever he goes. Bred by Ajman Stud, AJ Azzam, a son of AJ Mardan and out of Ysadora, is a super show horse and a lovely individual.

West Coast Cup/ Belgian Nationals The family of Koenraad Detailleur organizes the West Coast Cup Show in Belgium. What a wonderful day I experienced there, due in large part to this gracious and horse-loving family. I was either being greeted by one of their charming daughters or being brought a plate of delicious food by Koenraad and his lovely wife, making it beyond a comfortable and enjoyable day at their show. I also enjoyed a very interesting lunch conversation with Koenraad that ranged from Saskia RJ, to the importance of nurturing the complete horse and what that does for the breed. The West Coast Cup was held in conjunction with the Belgian National Championships. Two stunning mares captured my attention and my heart during the weekend, the first being Nesj El Markhisa, who waltzed away the Belgian Gold Senior Champion Mare. She represents the perfect blend of Kuhailan and Saklawi I bloodlines, and wears them all, oh so well. Her sire, Marwan Al Shaqab was the perfect cross for her dam, Nesj El Khisaya, herself a daughter of Khidar. Everyone involved with this gorgeous mare should be congratulated. She is a big European Summer Tour favorite for me, and was splendidly shown by Tom Oben. And then there was Wasfeyya El Gabry, the Jamil Al Rayyan mare who reigned supreme in deep competition as the winner of the Straight Egyptian Senior Mare class at the West Coast Show. Beautifully presented by Frank Spönle, Wasfeyya El Gabry is out of DHS Waseemah, a Salaa El Dine mare bred by El Gabry Stud in Egypt.

The quality was very special and there were many beautiful horses, but the one that really stood out was the gorgeous chestnut Magnum Psyche daughter, Isadora Joy, bred by Joy Arabians and now being shown by Glenn Schoukens for her new owners, Ferrer Shah Farms of Iran. She is a mare who represents a famous blend from the past, that of Magnum Psyche on Bey Shah+ – tried and true! Perfectly presented by Glenn Schoukens, Isadora Joy won the Senior Mare Championship at the recent Emerald Trophy show. She is my kinda’ mare and a fine example of the superior horses being bred by Joy.

A Visit With todAy’s Breeders & trAiners

You don’t have to show halter to know that it is important, even in this age of specialization in the Arabian breed. A brief glance at history tells the story. As far back as 1933, a “National Arabian Show” held in Nashville offered several titles, and even though the acclaimed stallion *Raffles won its Three-Gaited Championship, the event’s crown jewels were the National Champion Stallion and Mare. By the time all-Arabian shows gained traction—in California in the mid-1940s—halter again had the spotlight. The talk on the rail, what made the news, was the colts and stallions (mares came a little later) shown in hand. Why so much emphasis on halter? Because it was the heart of the breed—the class that represents what it is to be an Arabian. It was about the conformation, type and temperament that would support all the other pursuits. Breeders and owners loved their horses then as now, and used them for a variety of activities, but their main focus was on creating the horse of their dreams; how it compared to the entries of other enthusiasts mattered to them. When U.S. Nationals began, as classes in the Estes Park, Colo., show of 1958, it offered only two championships, one for stallions and one for mares. Early on, several national champion stallions (*Bask and Khemosabi, among others, come to mind) and some mares won performance national championships too, and many more picked up reserves and top tens. That has changed, as the ring has become more specialized. And the days of expansive breeding programs, with owners who grew up handling horses, are largely gone as well. But one aspect of the Arabian halter ring has not changed. The breeders, owners and trainers of halter entries remain passionately dedicated to their horses—titles, achievements and records are their illustrations of the faith they have in their Arabians. And that may be the most important reason that halter competition is and always has been critical to the future of the breed, especially in a changing world.

Joe AlBerti

Chestnuthill ArABiAns What should the ideal halter horse look like today? Well, the word “today” really should have no relevancy since as far as I know, the breed standard has not changed. With that said, I think a beautiful horse that displays form to function. You must have all the pieces to be in the winner’s circle. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? I want my halter horse to have the athletic ability to be a good performance horse, whatever the discipline. I also want it to be a horse that, with a little scuff of the

feet, has its tail on its back snorting. Confidence is a huge part of this. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. I was one of the first people to say that the score card with three judges does not work. I think the way we are doing it now with either five judges or using the MOS, is ideal. Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. 80s – Padron, 90s - Magnum Psyche, 2000s - Marwan Al Shaqab and WH Justice. Also hard to leave out *Muscat, Bey Shah, Padrons Psyche and Versace. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) I think the physical horse is what means the most. Now from a breeding standpoint as I have said in past articles, I think it is important to know your stallion’s strong and weak points, and that he might not be a true representation of that. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Symmetry is beauty. It’s the same with people. There is a whole math equation they do on peoples faces to show how attractive they are. The eye likes balance. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” Not if it does not have the other attributes to dictate a high price. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? 1,000,000% YES! Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? I like to stay positive and I feel the halter community, as well as AHA, are finally working together and I think that is a great thing.

lollie Ames

CedAr ridge ArABiAns, inC. What should the ideal halter horse look like today? I feel that the horse should be beautiful, but also needs to be functional; not just a pretty head. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? I want a horse that has good legs and is able to be athletic in some form.

In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? Padron and Triana; what an amazing cross that would be. Could you imagine the attitude this horse would have?

Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. 80s – Padron, 90s - Magnum Psyche, 2000s - Marwan Al Shaqab. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” Yes, but there is more than just a perfect tail and top line. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? Of course, and function is very important to me. I want more than a beautiful head, I want to see one that can also have tack put on them and compete in some form of discipline. Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? IF we don’t get halter people out showing and promoting their horse(s), we are not going to have halter. In the U.S., you can’t just show at two shows a year. We need excitement in our shows and to give people a reason to get involved.

Ben BAssiChis

stellA BellA ArABiAns What should the ideal halter horse look like today? I think the ideal halter horse should combine the Gladys Brown Edwards vision with the attitude and presence of a true champion. From the moment a great horse enters the ring, it should be hard to stop staring. Conformation should match. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? A good halter horse should be well muscled and correct in the legs and feet. The combination is the foundation for a good functioning horse. A great halter horse should be able to function well in any arena. 138 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. Scoring systems that reward trainers, instead of horses are the biggest con. In Europe, more emphasis is placed on the attitude and presence of the horse, which allow horses to show themselves. A happy horse that shows itself is a pleasure to watch. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) Of course, looking at the pedigrees for sire


and dam is critical. Breeding combines the art of seeing what each line brings to the table, paying particular attention to certain traits that emerge, with the most important factor … luck. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Balance is aesthetically pleasing. Regardless of the species, things that are in balance allow the sum of all parts to flow well. Seamlessly transitioning from standing still to graceful movement. Imbalance catches the eye as something being off. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” I think it is part of the complete package, if it is well balanced with the neck and legs, as well as having great movement. Then it will look more expensive. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? A halter horse should be the basis for all the other disciplines. If the horse is complete, then it should be able to move well and have the necessary traits to have

a long lasting career. Poor movement or bad legs should be judged accordingly. Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? As a newcomer to the industry, I can hope that the horse is the one that is being judged, not the trainer. When the best horse wins, great. Complete, aesthetically balanced horses should always trump the political game with trainers. My suggestion. Draw straws in a championship. Handlers have to show horses that are not their own. Mix and match. Once again, let the horse win, not the handler. A complete horse should win regardless. In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? A Gladys Brown mare to a Gladys Brown stallion.

Austin Boggs

Midwest stA tAtion Ation i, inc. What should the ideal halter horse look like today? Halter horses today should have: a well set, upright neck with good shape; a pretty face; strong body and top line, and strong hind end; good feet and legs; a great attitude and uses their tail straight up when moving. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? Good halter horses should be conformational horses. They should be able to move well and use themselves elegantly and boldly at the same time. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. The procedure used for each system is important. If the “exit ring” is the point system and the horses can stay calmly in the handling area, not stressed, the “in ring” is usually comparative, the class runs faster and are able to be seen the whole class. Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. 80s – Padron, 90s - Magnum Psyche, 2000s Marwan al Shaqab, 2010s forward - Vitorio TO. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long

and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) The breeding is what defines every horse. Good horses are good horses. As far as halter horses go, the horse in front of you is what should be judged. Sometimes, the best halter horse has a pedigree that doesn’t promote it to have that quality. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Balance is pleasing because if the horse in unbalanced they cannot function correctly. They for sure cannot perform and get high marks in all categories and look like the standard or breed ideal. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” It definitely helps give that look. A strong top line is an attribute of a good body, and a perfect tail set does make a difference in the overall look. A low set or crooked tail is not favorable for me when I look at a horse. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? Absolutely. Complete halter horses show more promise to be better breeding horses in the long run. The standard is such that the horse cannot only show qualities itself, but also pass the qualities along generations later in its progeny. Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? Yes, there is negativity, but any issue can be solved in some way. There needs to be more communication on each side. And each side has to be flexible to hearing the other. In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? If possible ... the fantasy horse I would breed would be Millennium LOA x RD Fabreanna.

dAVid Boggs

midWest trAining Centre What should the ideal halter horse look like today? First and foremost, this horse has to look like an Arabian horse. There should be an abundance of type and vitality. It should only take a glance to know you are looking at an Arabian horse. The horse must be distinguishable as an Arabian by its type, not simply a beautiful horse. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? I want as much function as possible. The ultimate Arabian horse is not only beautiful, but is also athletic. Particularly in the United States, halter horses have second careers in performance and endurance. Both form and function are paramount to me. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. As most people know, I have strong feelings and belief in the comparative system. I think each judge uses the scoring system differently, and many times it is very hard to see any kind of consistency. For example, in a comparative championship, oftentimes the winners are not the highest

scoring horses. Comparative judging allows the best horse to win as determined by each judge’s own selection. Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. From the 1980s to now, without question, *Padron, all the way through to today! He has had one of the most profound impacts on the breed of any Arabian stallion. This is no idle thought; I back up my choice with Padrons Psyche, Magnum Psyche, WH Justice, Ajman Moniscione, Magnum Chall, Magnum Forty-Four, and Psytadel. All of these stallions are king makers, very strong progenitors of the *Padron line, and you see influence of *Padron in many champions throughout the world today. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) Absolutely! Knowing your bloodlines and doing your research is critical. Having the benefit of years in the industry, you can understand each of these valuable traits and select the mating properly. Dr. Kale once said, “You do not paint a beautiful painting with only one color of paint.” You really need to take the best from each important bloodline. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Appreciation for balance and symmetry are human traits. Balance is important for the natural flow and movement of the horse. Balance plays a critical part in the judging of Arabian horses. For me, balance is a part of beauty and extremely important. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” These two characteristics are pinnacles to success, however, they are only part of the big picture. Topline and tail carriage are two of the five characteristics of type. Sure, horses must be good in these areas to look expensive, but they must have much, much more as well. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? Of course I do! A complete horse is one with Arabian type, balance, form and function. These are the horses that are winning today, and they are very difficult to find. Everyone I know is trying to breed one or buy one. Once you do find them, they are deservingly very expensive! Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? Sadly, I think negativity exists throughout the world today. God Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 141


has given all of us free choice to take a negative approach or not. In the halter world, yes, we have areas we need to improve on. Having said that, I do not think there is a debilitating negativity brewing in the breed, just issues that need solutions.

the caretaker to; it is impossible to be negative. *Kahil Al Shaqab and the magnificent collection of horses from Al Shaqab; *Baha AA, Aria Impresario, *Wieza Mocy, Triana, *Perfirka … the list goes on.

There is also much positivity in our breed. We need to work on more new ways for promoting the breed. We need to reach out to the grassroots to expose the Arabian horse to more people. We need to unite as a breed and work together to promote our Arabian horses. For me personally, just walking through the barns is a joy, seeing all these magnificent creatures I have the honor of being

In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? I would choose *Padron to *Wieza Mocy. The resulting foal would be very beautiful, athletic, well balanced, and well conformed. I believe that both sire and dam would produce an abundance of type and charisma through their valuable bloodlines.

ted CArson

ted CArson @ Butler FArms trAining Center What should the ideal halter horse look like today? The ideal halter horse needs to have it all. It’s the one horse that makes you look at it as it walks by, the one that everyone follows around the arena at Scottsdale, the one that everyone swarms around in the Vegas collecting arena.

Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? Function is only in the eye of the beholder! Movement can win a lot of classes though! Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. The score card is so important for: 1). You can educate with the scorecard; 2). You learn to look at all parts, and 3). All parts have equal weight. Comparative: It’s great for the excitement of a championship and a pleasure to see the best as a group. Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. 80s – Padron, 90s - Padrons Psyche, 2000s - Gazal Al Shaqab, 2010s - WH Justice. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) Genetics moves forward! The good and the bad! Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? This is a part of the whole and it is great to see. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” What makes a horse expensive is not only does it have a lot of pieces that are incredible, but it loves itself just as much. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? When it comes to breeding stock, complete is a great thing, although it is important to weigh all the pieces to determine if you want more of what you see.

142 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES


Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? The industry of breeding and showing is divided, no way around it. Most people just don’t have the time to watch, breed and show all divisions even if they enjoyed them all.

In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? It’s always good to dream … I’m just not sure that’s how it works.

Aude espourteille deor FArms

What should the ideal halter horse look like today? Arabian type, with animation and movement, without losing conformational correctness. Also, an Arabian that can also be ridden, without losing type and style. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? I want a lot of function, from my breeding/halter horse ... to be able to ride, be it on the trail or show ring! Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. In the end, it all comes down to comparing and the Comparison system in the championships, so why not just start and end with this?

Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. *Bask, *Muscat, Negatraz, Bey Shah, *Padron, Ali Jamaal, Echo Magnifficoo, Versace, Monogramm, Magnum Psyche, DA Valentino, Gazal Al Shaqab and Marwan Al Shaqab. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) Always look at the pedigree and try to see the horse in person, and use it as a guide. Dam lines on both sire and dam, will always give you the biggest hint of your outcome … in my eyes at least. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Balance becomes structure, therefore, pleasing to the eye, especially when it’s typey! Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” Yes, because it is conformationally correct to be so. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? Yes. Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? Keep it positive and fun! In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? *Elkana to *Marwan Al Shaqab.

What should the ideal halter horse look like today? 15” 1 and balanced with an incredible neck. Short back, muscular, great legs and tail set, big eyes and a great face, just like the one I envision each unborn foal to be! Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? A halter career is brief for most horses. When function is not part of the thought process, ability to find good homes for foals that aren’t halter worthy becomes very difficult. I want my horses to have a purpose beyond the final halter performance. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. Regardless of the system, judges equate their values differently. I appreciate a conservative approach. In a perfect world, all judges would pass an examination where the answers were always the same. Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. 80s - Bey Shah / Padron, 90s - Ali Jamaal / Fame VF, 2000s – Versace / Padrons Psyche, 2010s Khadraj NA / Marwan. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) It is always important to take into account the genetic background of the animal you’re breeding. Does your stallion complement the physical, athletic and mental traits of your mare? You need to take into account the qualities you wish to improve on. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? The whole package is what we all want. A balanced animal is pleasing to the eye, but it also affects the overall movement and presence of the animal. Our eyes are always drawn to what we dislike. Proportion makes many faults less evident. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” I don’t equate value only to top line and tail set. It is significant, however, I always like to start at the bottom and work my way up. I start with the feet and legs. A beautiful tail and great face just become frosting on the cake!

144 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? I am 100% about the total horse. When observing a class or personally judging an individual, my eyes are always drawn to those horses that look good in any portion of their presentation, especially when they are relaxed and just standing. Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? Judges see things in center ring not necessarily seen from the sideline. Their personal preference comes into play. My suggestion is to watch the classes you are not in. When observing, pick out your competition. Learn from observation. In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? Aramus to Amber Satin; two horses that were incredible in every way.


greg KnoWles ArABiAn expressions

What should the ideal halter horse look like today? I don’t think there is one type of halter horse; there are many different styles based on different cultures, and some countries’ histories. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? I want a good halter horse to be conformed good enough so he can also be a good performance horse. A good halter horse should always be mentally and physically a good performance horse. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. I could make a case for both major systems, “Comparative” or “Scoring;” they both have many flaws. However, for me, the Comparative system is more exciting at a horse show. Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. Bey Shah, Padron, Ali Jamaal, Padrons Psyche, Magnum and Marwan Al Shaqab. In the straight world, Thee Desperado. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) I always consider the pedigree—it’s a road map, and it helps with predictability in the resulting foal. If the foal looks like its pedigree, chances are it will stay that way.

Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? I have a simple definition for halter horses: If the horse has extreme, high quality pieces and no major faults, it’s a great horse. If a horse has those extreme pieces and a major fault, it can only be good.

Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Balance and symmetry is in everything—cars, houses. Balance is always important to beauty and function.

Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? I think that in the “show horse world,” negativity is always brewing, and yes, I have many solutions. However, there is not enough room on this questionnaire to explain my thoughts here.

Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive”? I use the word “expensive” for quality, and yes, those traits make a horse look expensive, as does fine legs, tight ears, big eyes, fine muzzles and fine coats.

In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? Wow, there are many choices. I might like to try Ali Jamaal to the great Dornaba.

mArio mAtt A

mArio mAtt A ArABiAns What should the ideal halter horse look like today? For me, the ideal halter horse should have a nice, refined head, big eyes, a well-laid back shoulder, upright neck, strong short back, a good topline, good legs and good movement.

Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? It is very important to always try to breed a complete horse. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 145


and cons for each. I like a ranking system, but I think that points for movement should always be added in. Otherwise the results are predictable, such as happens in Scottsdale where movement is not a factor. Perhaps if points were applied to rankings, say, 20 pts. for first, 15 pts. for second and so forth, and then movement points were added in, there would be more opportunity for more horses. Sometimes there are four or five possible winners and a lot of luck is needed in a strong class.

Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? For me, it is similar to skiing; I am always striving for perfection. It is the same when I breed or look at horses. I want to see a complete, balanced picture.

Maybe a new system would take some subjectivity out of judging and provide more consistency. For example, the judging panel is made up of experts who specialize in one element; one judge rates the head, one the legs, one the movement, etc. That way, every head score is to the same standard, every movement score and so forth. It’s something to think about.

Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? I really like a complete horse that is elegant and pretty, too. That includes the character of the horse; their show attitude. But they must also be sweet and easy to handle for the people who take care of them.

Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. For show and breeding, I like *El Shaklan and Bey Shah. For producing the unique look—great eyes, nice ears—Ali Jamaal. And for the most influence all over the world, Marwan Al Shaqab. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) I must like the horse himself, the way he is built. Second, of course, the pedigree is very important. Some strains need more time and get more beautiful with age. Some strains are very pretty as a young foal. To really like a breeding horse, I have to see the offspring and evaluate the mare to see if she is the right mare to give to the stallion. He must be a good sire of broodmares too.

Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” An expensive horse should be a complete horse. The tail carriage and topline are a special highlight that adds charisma.

Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? Yes, there is negativity. First of all, we need more judges who are honest, not corrupt. People who are new to the business need to understand the reality that there is corruption in this, as in all businesses. And they need to know that the problem is being addressed. Small European breeders are disadvantaged from the first time they show when wealthy owners from other parts of the world compete against them in regional events. It is expensive to keep a horse in training. The pool of talented handlers is limited and mainly hired by big farms for more money than the small ones can afford to pay. The small guy seldom wins. The same handlers visit the small breeders to look for prospects for their farms. The breeder ends up selling, the farm pays 20 times what the breeder received and the middleman pockets the rest. It is the breeder who should profit the most. While it is great that all of the best horses are coming to Europe, it would be good to have a few well-organized shows dedicated to Europeans only. Maybe four shows a year, only for European breeders too. Of course, it is great to see all the horses at Aachen and Paris, and other big shows, but the small breeders need showcases too. The same thing happens in America and the small breeder loses. In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? I am already living my fantasy; MM Esplendida is everything I could wish for. She is the result of breeding RFI Farid to MM Eluise, a daughter of WH Justice. Bey Shah, Ali Jamaal, *El Shaklan … they are all represented in her.

What should the ideal halter horse look like today? The ideal halter horse should definitely show form to function. Type is a breed hallmark and must be maintained throughout. Tail carriage, motion and just beauty, is all a part of the complete package that creates the Arabian halter horse. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? You must have enough “function” that the horse would be suitable to ride in some division should that be an avenue later in life. Neck placement in a halter horse is very important for use as a performance horse. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. The scoring system is the easiest to manipulate. One judge can control the entire results. I still like a combination where eliminations are done with the scoring system and finals are done by comparison.

individual horse. A halter horse must have at least there extremes to be on a national level. Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? For the most part, halter foals are the industry’s backbone. The U.S. Nationals and AHA simply does not listen and will not give the halter horse the necessary venue. They are always changing rules and regulations. In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? Bask to Amety B; QR Marc to Aalove Note mare out of the Nasim line, and QR Marc to Rohara Tsultress.

Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. Aramus, Bask, Padron, Padrons Psyche, Bay el Bey lines, QR Marc and Marwan Al Shaqab. Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) You should first look at the phenotype and then go to the genotype. What you see in front of you is an expression of a dominant genotype. A symbiotic melding of the two types is optimal. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Balance in nature (ie environment, animals, people) is a responsive coexistence with equal and correct proportions. Correct proportions with nothing in excess is a pleasing balance of equal parts. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” It is a characteristic of the breed and should be expected if you are a breeder. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? Not necessarily; it depends on the extent of faults “balanced” by the extremes exhibited by the

CynthiA moore

Argent FArms / J.t. t. Keller perFormAnCe horses t What should the ideal halter horse look like today? We prefer the Gladys Brown Edwards model. Long, thin well placed neck with a small throat latch, equal thirds and like a long level rear with great tail carriage. Must be animated and charismatic. Great motion, beautiful head and eye. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? Prefer function. Horses need to be useful after halter. Love good movement and a horse that can use itself to perform.

Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) Absolutely. The features in the background, good or bad, have a way of coming through. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? If you look at a horse that is not balanced, the first thing you notice is the part that is out of balance. For instance if you see a short croup, then the horse immediately looks out of balance. A balanced horse exudes quality. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” It’s more about the length of the hip. A nice full rear with a good tail set. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? Yes, you can only fix one or two faults per generation, so one that is more complete gives the breeder an advantage.

Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. The U.S. system pros: that you know the outcome early and the horses get a break. Cons: can still pick politically and it’s boring. In Las Vegas they added another judge and re-judged for the champions which mixed it up creating lots of excitement.

Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? I see negativity. Some of which is because of the changes in the judging, so halter is less exciting. Also, some of the scheduling of halter has been less than advantageous. A great breed needs a strong halter foundation.

Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. 80s - Bey Shah, 90s - Fame VF, 2000s - Padrons Psyche, 2010s - Marwan Al Shaqab / Ever After NA.

In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be? We would breed RH Triana to Eden C or Ever After NA. She’s so elegant and they are so beautiful and throw it.

What should the ideal halter horse look like today? The ideal halter horse should catch your eye so that you can’t help but take a second look. They are elegant, refined and correct. I want my halter horses to have a great shoulder, a smooth, balanced body and true Arabian type. We want them to be beautiful, but they also have to be functional. Lastly, my ideal halter horse is happy doing his job. From the pasture to the show ring, he is willing and fun to be around. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? Just how much function? All of it. Form has everything to do with function and a halter horse is not a correct horse unless it is 148 Halter | ARABIAN HORSE TIMES

functional. Yes, we want our horses to be beautiful with plenty of type, but they also need to be functional in all aspects of their lives. Our hope is that the Shellbird-bred horses have a successful halter career that is followed by an equally successful performance career. Many of the horses I have bred have gone on to have exceptional performance careers. To name a few: With A Twist+/, Ssteam+/, Ssinatra+, Psyabotage+, and of course, Sshaq++++//. Of the different judging systems in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. All of the different systems come with their benefits and drawbacks. Chauncey and I prefer the comparative system. We very much enjoy the excitement and crowd


engagement of the championships in the comparative system. Bringing back all of the class winners into one ring gives us a great view of the quality of the horses presented and is a valuable tool for us as breeders and exhibitors. In regards to the point system, we might see that a great horse that may be lacking in one category can end up with scores that really hurt the overall success of the horse. I’m not discrediting the importance of any of the categories, but if a judge is looking for a way to lower a horse’s score, the legs are what they are going to use. It’s a political “out.” Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. 80s - Padron, 90’s - Bey Shah, 2000s through today - Padrons Psyche, Magnum Psyche, DA Valentino, and Versace. In the very near future, this one is standing by his mother’s side at Shellbird—his name is Reverent (Bey Shah x Verastrella). Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) Of course, we take into account the breeding behind a halter horse. We’re breeders. In a halter horse, it is very important to have a balance between substance and type. It is easy to end up with all type and no horse, or all horse and no type if you do not carefully look at the big picture. A mixture of bloodlines along with the knowledge of what each has to offer is imperative to successful breeding. Knowing what each bloodline contributes and how those traits complement each other is what defines a breeder and shapes the overall look of their program. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? Balance is everything. Without balance, the picture is not complete and you find yourself looking for what is missing, focusing on the flaws and not the beautiful horse in front of you. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” Expensive … Is this a new buzzword in our industry? One of the reasons new families don’t look to Arabians is they assume they are expensive. Quality Arabians are no more expensive than quality horses in any other breed. Let’s keep this term away from our breed; it’s not helpful. As to a strong top line and perfect tail set, these are characteristics that contribute to a horse’s overall quality. If you are coupling these great qualities with the many more that an “expensive” Arabian should have, then the answer is yes. The “expensive” look that people talk about, is so much more; it is charisma, type, expression, emotion … the list goes on.

Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? Sure there is negativity, there always is; however, there is also great positive energy that we prefer to focus on. If we were to discuss two negative topics, they would be the amount of classes at horse shows and the so called “professional amateur”. Chauncey and I believe that there are far too many classes at our horse shows. This dilutes the value and meaning of our champions. We would love to see fewer classes which would make them more competitive and valuable. It would be ideal for our horse shows to cut down the number of classes and add prize money; even if this means that they must increase the entry fees to add money to the prize pot—that is okay by us! Let’s add transparency with a publication included in the prize list that breaks down how much goes to run the show, and how much money is allocated to prize money. This will give more motivation for everyone to compete and win. When discussing our “professional amateurs,” I think we need to completely redo our amateur programs. I understand that the prize money in the programs that “amateurs” show in goes to the owner of the horse, but these “amateurs” have an unfair advantage in my opinion. Most of the horses being shown in the prize money classes are also being shown in the open classes by a professional. There are many other breeds in the equestrian industry that have successful amateur programs that we could model off of. For example, I competed in the cutting circuit for a very long time. Their amateur program is wonderful! It is not based off of ability, everyone starts out in the entry level amateur classes and as you gain prize money you level up and up into higher prize money categories, and you can’t go back down. As an amateur or a non pro, I feel that you must own the horse that you are showing. There are numerous situations at shows where someone is related to a trainer and those people are showing horses with an unfair advantage to those that are not related to or living with a trainer. These are the situations in which one should only be allowed to show in a non pro class. Giving owners and amateurs a fair shot at competition encourages them to continue to show and enjoy the Arabian horse.

What should the ideal halter horse look like today? It is not a question on how it should look today; an Arabian is an Arabian and should look and be able to do the same performance from 400 years ago, to now, or in 400 years from now. Classic/dry/hardy/athletic and refined. Just how much function do you want from a good halter horse? There is no such thing as a good halter horse and there shouldn`t be; there is only: a good Arabian horse. It should be versatile—a horse only for show would become a garden ornament and that’s not right, but the opposite is also not right. Of the different judging systems you are aware of in halter arenas around the world today, list a few pros and cons for each. Point systems keep the judges away to judge for their own personal taste, on the opposite side, if you have a great judge I think the comparative is very nice. But then the question is ... good judges? Name the halter stallion that you believe had the greatest impact on each decade starting with the 1980s and forward. For my taste, it would be the father/son combination Padron and Padrons Psyche. Also Ghazal Al Shaqab and Marwan Al Shaqab. In the straight Egyptian Arabian horse, I would choose Ansata Ibn Halima and Ansata Halim Shah.

Do you take into account the breeding behind a halter horse and what limitations he or she might have due to the breeding? (ie. a true Saklawi stallion is always long and an Egyptian horse usually has less neck length) Of course, you need to do that, but frankly the strains in today’s Arabian horse I think, have little value left. I think it’s more important to study the individuals and their direct parentage. Why is balance so pleasing to our eyes? It’s everything ... if there is no balance, there is nothing; nothing you can work, build or breed with. Do you feel a strong top-line and perfect tail set makes a horse look “expensive?” No, I think too much focus has been raised on these points and other important points have been overseen. It’s a fashion matter; fashion comes and goes. Classic looks and balance always remain. Do you value a halter horse that is “complete” over one that is not? Yes. Do you feel there is negativity brewing currently in the halter world? If yes, do you have solutions to the problems you see? Everyone should realize they got into horses because it’s a lifestyle they choose: boxes to clean, nights to stay up, vet bills to pay ... it all belongs! The complainers of today’s world are the ones wanting success without the sacrifice. In a fantasy world, if you could breed a famous halter stallion to a famous halter mare, dead or alive, who would they be?

The Heart of Albidayer Stud by JEFF WALLACE with THERESA CARDAMONE


B

BEGINNINGS Albidayer Stud, located in Sharjah, UAE, takes its name from Bidayer, the first foal of foundation mare Eskalopa to be born to owner and founder Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi. Sheikh Mohammed came by his passion for Arabian horses naturally due to the heavy involvement in the breed of his uncle, HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah, and his brother, Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed Al Thani who owns Alzobair Stud. After attending a WAHO conference in 1996, Sheikh Mohammed’s interest was further piqued, and in 2003 he founded Albidayer. After surprising himself by purchasing his first three mares in one sweep, he realized he was smitten. He became a serious student of the art of breeding, particularly as it related to Arabian horses, and there was no looking back. The Sheikh was welcomed into the international Arabian community, where both competitors and fans continue to hold him in high regard. “Sheikh Mohammed is a true gentleman, a man of good character,” describes Albidayer farm manager Dawn Martin. “He has a sincere love for the horses, and is devoted to carefully breeding the finest possible Arabians, who are in fact, among the finest in the world. At the same time, he supports the industry as a whole in a quietly generous way, for example, sponsoring classes or divisions of shows that Albidayer horses do not even compete in, or donating breedings to Albidayer stallions that can only be won by local European owners and breeders. He is genuine, and everyone who knows him holds him in the highest regard, myself included.” Fellow breeders appreciate the man and his methods. His selective approach, adding only a horse or two per year to grow the herd, is resulting in a very high percentage of champions from small foal crops without flooding the market with a surplus of inferior horses. Tom and Cathy Schoukens have observed Albidayer’s development. “Being in the Middle East a lot for the show season, we have been able to follow very closely the Albidayer Stud,” they explained. “H.E. Sheikh Mohammed has collected an amazing group of mares over the last decade. The well-thought over purchases of those mares and, of course, the amazing stallion Marajj, combined with some very wise breeding decisions, have made them a leading farm in the world.”

MAYASAH ALBIDAYER Marajj x Mattaharii


Marajj


MARAJJ Marwan Al Shaqab x RGA Kouress, by Kouvay Bey Sired by the breed’s dominant stallion, Marwan Al Shaqab, Marajj carries a strong dam line through the *Bask daughter Belbowrie Baskana. A striking bay, Marajj has racked up an impressive international show record, culminating in being crowned the 2007 World Champion Junior Colt at the Salon du Cheval in Paris, and the Bronze World Champion Stallion as a senior. The Albidayer team spent the first few years trying to breed their own Marajj daughters, a slow process due to their intentionally small foal crops. It was also Sheikh Mohammed’s preference that Marajj stand to limited books of mares, some years restricting

his use strictly to Albidayer bloodstock. Martin explains, “Marajj is a stallion that can cross a lot of boundaries. As a result, he may have been pushed in too many directions as a show horse. He had limited opportunities for semen to be frozen for the international market while he was on the show string. Bred sparingly, he has only produced around 200 foals, about half of them in the UAE.” Considering his exceptional quality and pedigree, it should be no surprise that from such a small pool, Marajj is quietly proving himself to be an amazing sire, with champion offspring in over 20 different countries. A shining example is 2009 Silver World Junior Champion and 2008 Scottsdale Unanimous Junior

Champion Colt Maharaja HDM, who is out of an Antar Elamal WN daughter. Marajj also sired 2015 Austrian National Champion Senior Stallion Marjan Albidayer, out of Pustynna Droga, by Laheeb. This stunning 7-year-old did a lot of winning in Wels, also earning the Silver Champion Stallion honors at the International Show there. His tail female line descends to one of Janów Podlaski’s finest, through the *Bandos daughter Patera. Marjan Albidayer is owned and shown by the Marjan Syndicate. Also a gold champion at Wels was the yearling Marajj daughter D Safana who is out of the great champion and producer FT Shaella. Bred and owned by Dubai Stud, D Safana was also the 2015 Gold Champion Yearling Filly at the West Coast Cup. Safana’s full sister, D Shahla, is on track to build upon the World Silver Champion Junior Female title she earned in a hotly contested class last winter in Paris, as she sets her sights on the gold at the 2015 Salon du Cheval.

“The influence of the Albidayer Stud breeding program is felt throughout the world. Sheikh Mohammed's passion and appreciation of quality have earned him much success not only as an owner, but also as a respected breeder of champions.” —Erin Naas

“Having followed Albidayer Stud and Sheikh Mohammed’s program, I’m very impressed with what smart choices their breeding program is built on. We’ve had the pleasure of collaborating together in the last few years through presenting Albidayer’s stallions Kanz Albidayer and Marajj. I have a lot of respect for the team of Albidayer and in particular, for Sheikh Mohammed himself. The professionalism that manager Dawn Martin and resident trainer Barry Shepherd exhibit is just great.” —Tom Oben

One of Marajj’s strongest traits is his ability to add his own dimension of quality and correct type, while letting the best attributes of the dam shine through. For example, in addition to Marajj, FT Shaella has also been bred to some of the breed’s dominant sires, including QR Marc and Marwan Al Shaqab. While the results from those stellar stallions were good, Shaella’s cross to Marajj has borne the sweetest fruit and allowed her the opportunity to most closely reproduce herself. With only a few foals born to Albidayer in each of the earlier years, it has taken until now for their Marajj daughters such as Karawan Albidayer, out of the Kubinec daughter Khaleifa, to be old enough to have foals on the ground. The next generation is eagerly awaited. “I have known both Dawn Martin and Barry Shepherd individually for a long time, and admire them both for many reasons. They are each determined while being humble, professional, honest, skilled, and well liked by everyone from the world’s leading breeders, to trainers, to grooms! Together with H.E. Sheikh Mohammed, who has a wonderful reputation for the same reasons, Albidayer Stud has become one of the leading farms in the world.” —Johanna Ullstrom

THE PRESENT Albidayer has developed slowly over the last decade, due to Sheikh Mohammed’s desire to make each decision with specific intent. He is not a blanket breeder, but prefers a targeted approach. When it became prudent to hire a resident trainer, Martin secured Barry Shepherd’s services—a major coup. In addition to sharing a common ethic, he has the talent to represent the farm at the highest levels. He has a great touch with horses, a skill that cannot be taught but must spring from within. “We were lucky to get him as a full-time trainer, “Martin comments. “He has a special way of connecting with the horses that results in them wanting to perform for him. Mozn Albidayer has something of a diva attitude, but she responds really well to Barry.” Barry is well liked by all of the other trainers as well, who respect his ability with all kinds of horses. Even his competitors root for him and Mozn when they are in the ring! He takes his position and the opportunities and responsibilities that come with it very seriously. He sums up the farm philosophy when he talks about nurturing each horse and letting them develop at their own pace. “I feel so very lucky to be able to have the luxury of working with these special horses as foals, slowly schooling them and watching them grow in confidence while creating a bond that enables them to go out and be happy, joyful horses and enjoy their times spent in the show arena. That, for me, is my aim as a trainer. After all, the judges are looking at these beautiful horses and not me, so when we are in the ring, we work as a team.” More than simply a trainer and handler, Barry provides assistance and support to Martin across the board. “I have been with Albidayer for three years now and have loved every minute. When I was first offered the job, Sheikh Mohammed joked that I would have to breed him some champions. So, I joined together with Dawn, each of us adding knowledge of different bloodlines and breeding ideas.”

Martin elaborates, “We spent the first several years trying to get Marajj daughters for our program, and then the past year or two we have been trying to create some outcross daughters that can be bred to Marajj. We incorporate different stallions into the program for different reasons, including AJ Barzan, Shanghai EA, WH Justice, Fadi Al Shaqab and SMA Magic One.” Their efforts have not gone unnoticed. “What a breeding program they have,” remarks Marnix Criel, the breeder of SMA Magic One. “Dawn and Barry have chosen the perfect mares for him with the result everybody knows … all champions!” MOZN ALBIDAYER SMA Magic One x Mattaharii, by Magnum Chall HVP Shepherd and Martin had a vision of what SMA Magic One’s blood could infuse into the herd, combined with the knowledge that comes from the experience of many years of, “breeding, watching, and silently taking note,” as Barry describes it. “It all came together when we saw the birth of the filly Mozn Albidayer in 2014,” he adds. “She melted my heart when she first popped out. I patiently waited, not allowing myself to get too excited before she grew up and was named first, Gold Champion in Ajman, and then Gold Champion Yearling filly at the mecca of the UAE show scene, the Dubai International Arabian Horse Festival. Recently crowned AHO Breeders World Cup International Champion Filly at Chantilly, I feel that she has stolen European hearts as she has mine.” The

Albidayer Stud | 6 | Ar abian Horse Times


Schoukens could not agree more, “She completely stole our hearts and many other hearts all over the world. She is truly one of a kind and possesses all that we look for in an Arabian horse.” Mozn is a breathtaking filly who reigns from an amazing American dam line which traces to a wonderful root mare from Judy Lairmore in Oklahoma, the *Bask daughter, Bask Gazal. Mozn’s dam and grand dam were both top winning show mares in the States and her direct dam Mattaharii is one of the original foundation mares for Albidayer, who acquired her as an early yearling and campaigned her to the title of United States National Reserve Champion Yearling Filly. Mattaharii has always cut a beautiful silhouette and has passed many of her finest attributes on to the lovely Mozn. Mozn’s class this year at Chantilly was quite impressive, especially given the competition—truly an extraordinary class. Mozn represents to the world a sign of the efforts of several astute breeders, something that creates a most unique elegance all its own. Her beauty, almost haunting, was revered by all present in both Dubai and Menton as Mozn Albidayer is a true breeder’s dream. Good breeding and good breeders at work, as it should be.

It’s been a thrill to watch a horse that I bred be campaigned and marketed around the world through the brilliant efforts of owner Sheikh Mohammed and the team of talented professionals he has collaborating with him. Dawn Martin and Barry Shepherd work tirelessly to make sure the horses are happy and healthy, and do an incredible job promoting Albidayer Stud around the world. It was a thrill to be in Dubai this year with a very proud Sheikh Mohammed to watch his horses shine in the show ring. They walked away with several of the top titles at the Dubai show and others throughout the Middle East.” —Joel Desmarteau

THE FUTURE As the frenzy of the summer show season settles into the culminating events of the year, the Albidayer contingent will be well represented. As this year’s foals grow into the producers of tomorrow, they too will represent the Stud with honor. As each year passes, the Albidayer Stud breeding program will continue its steady progress of improving a genetic pool established by generations of desert breeders. It is the heritage of the Arabian horse that is at the heart of Albidayer. ■

A Beautifully Woven Tapestry

Saskia RJ by Jeff Wallace and James Swaenepoel

Saskia RJ (Plakat x Barwna, by Iridos)

Breeding Arabian horses is an art form that takes time to perfect. Generation after generation, the breeder strings his loom with the foundational bloodlines that will anchor their program. The genius comes in selecting the right colorful threads to weave into the design, and deciding how often to use them in the pattern. A single splash of color, when repeated enough times, creates a strong impression on the finished product. In Europe, the vibrant thread, which colors the pedigrees of so many historical and contemporary champions, is Saskia RJ (Plakat x Barwna, by Iridos).

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


Saskia RJ

With a potent international pedigree that weaves itself into her own uniquely luxurious tapestry, Saskia RJ provides an indelible infusion of traits that carry forward. Her Tersk-bred sire is the beloved World Champion Stallion, Plakat, a son of Aswan and Pchelka who is out of Panel, making him a 3/4 brother to Palas, with a tail male line direct to Nazeer and Mansour. Extremely popular as a show horse, Plakat’s animated presence and excellent conformation kept him earning championship titles into his 20’s. Saskia’s dam, Barwna, adds English and Polish blood to Plakat’s Russian contribution. She is by the Crabbet-bred stallion Iridos, who comes from the Naseem/Skowronek line so valuable in Polish breeding. He has an additional line to *Silver Vanity, a horse who would become a notable sire in America. Add in a Kuhailan Polish tail female line that traces to taproot, desert-bred mares foaled over 170 years ago,

supported by the strength springing from Trypolis and Wielki Szlem, and the loom is strung. An exquisitely beautiful mare with a show-stopping appeal, Saskia RJ swept the 1987 World and European Championships before retiring to cement her reputation of being an outstanding producer of the highest caliber. Her impact on the evolution of European Arabian horse breeding is profound and really, unmatched. Saskia RJ was born in 1984 to breeder Robert De Mulder and his then-wife Jeanine (the R and J in her name) on their farm in Belgium. In an era when most breeders were adamant about maintaining the purity of a particular strain be it “straight Egyptian” or “pure-Polish,” Saskia RJ was an anomaly. Her passport of a pedigree stamped her with the sensational motion, correct conformation and elegant breed type that she was destined to pass on to her progeny.

Volume 46, No. 3 | 261


Dam of over a dozen foals, her legacy is secure. Saskia’s offspring have not only exhibited their dam’s best attributes, they have consistently passed those qualities on to their own foals. Like *Ansata Bint Bukra, Falima and *Sanacht before her, Saskia RJ line-breeds so beautifully, it is something rare and very special. While so many of her carefully crafted progeny have made names for themselves, four stand out: SMA Magic One (Psytadel x Majidah Bint Pacha, by AS Sinans Pacha) is a really hot sire in Europe now. Owned by Al Zobair Stud, he is double-Saskia through his dam, who is sired by a Saskia RJ son and out of a Saskia granddaughter on the tail female line. That concentration of Saskia splendor allows him to sire exceptional offspring, including the exotic 2015 Ajman and Dubai Gold Champion Yearling Filly, Mozn Albidayer, out of Mattaharii. FM Gloriaa (WH Justice x Psity of Angels, by Psytadel) is double-Saskia on her dam’s side by virtue of granddam Nathanya JC, the result of breeding a Saskia son to a Saskia daughter. Her impressive show wins stretch from 2008 Belgian National Champion Filly to 2013 World Silver Champion and Best Head in Paris for Al Zobair. When crossed with SMA Magic One, the resulting infusion of two more swatches of Saskia created FM Gloriaa’s compelling son Barjass Al Zobair, the 2015 Gold Champion Colt at Sharjah. Bred in Begium by Mieke Sans, FM Gloriaa is already showing how her Saskia blood breeds true. SA Misha Apal (AS Natsir-Apal x Nyara JC, by Nadir I) is a Saskia granddaughter on her sire’s side, and a great-granddaughter on her dam’s side. The 2001 Salon du Cheval World Champion Filly, she later won the 2009 All Nations Cup Champion Mare title, besting the exquisite *Emandoria in the process. Misha has a very hot attitude, a sublimely pretty face, and great movement, which is why she did so well in European shows and commanded a near record sales price. She is a valuable producer for Al Zobair. 262 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Saskia RJ at the Platinum Cup.

Billy Jean (AS Sinans Pacha x AS Imaani, by Hallim-Ibn-Kendal) is by a Saskia son and out of a Saskia daughter making her a double granddaughter and a hotbed for all things Saskia. The power and predictability of the double-Saskia breeding was spotlighted when Billy Jean was named the 2008 Belgian National Champion Mare, while FM Gloriaa won the Junior Championship. The fact that Sheikh Jassim and Bart van Buggenhout have retained five of her daughters for Aljassimya proves their high regard for Billy Jean and her ability to pass on the best qualities of Saskia RJ. There is something indefinable about Saskia RJ that endears her to astute Arabian aficionados beyond her show or progeny records. She has celebrity status. When speaking with Bart van Buggenhout of Aljassimya Farm, Saskia’s name comes up several times. He has quite a rich history with Saskia RJ, and a deep appreciation for her. Bart remembers, “Saskia RJ was one of my childhood heroes! I loved her, and I am so thankful to have had her in my care for a while. Saskia is one of the mares that has produced the most World Champions in direct line over the last 25 years, and especially in the later years. Most people look at stallions; I always

look at mares. I will never love a stallion unless I love his mother! Saskia RJ is like Estopa, Ansata Bint Bukra, the “P” line from Janow, or the “E” line from Michalów—she is right there at the top for me.” Dearly beloved by her owner of many years, Robert De Mulder, Saskia was retired to the care of Michel Combette and Katell Lucas in a bucolic setting in the South of France where she can be found today. Living the peaceful life of a very accomplished mare, she enjoys her idle time greeting the visitors who travel from all over the world to see her. At the age of thirty-one, Saskia RJ is as exquisite now as she was during the prime of her life, with her animated attitude intact. The enduring value of careful breeding is apparent in her form and her function as a broodmare. In Saskia RJ, the breeders who so carefully strung their looms with each element of her pedigree have created a beautifully woven tapestry that never fades away. n

A TOUCH OF ST YLE Melissa Pasicznyk How would you describe your style of design and marketing? I don’t have a specific “style” per say, other than I know what I like and what I don’t like, and a lot of it really depends on what I’m doing or what its going to be used for. I like to look thru magazines, both horse and nonhorse, and surf the web for inspiration to create something new, different and unique. What design have you done in the Arabian horse industry that you are most proud of ? I’ve done several that I am very proud of, but I have two that stand out to me the most; the first being the creation of the logo for the new Medallion Stallion Auction Performance Maturity program, and the second being the back cover of the AHT Special Feature—The Arabian Western Pleasure Horse— where I had the privilege of creating the ad for Sheer Audacity V.

What has the Arabian horse industry provided for you? An amazing hobby, a “family,” and now a career. I’m fortunate to be able to work in the industry that I love and have been part of for over 25 years. It is my “extended family,” a part of me for so long I honestly don’t know what I would do without it. It’s given me the ability to travel to places and meet people all over the world, achieve things I never dreamed possible, and given me many highs and many lows, but it’s something that I love and never want to be without.

How long have you been associated with the Arabian horse industry? I have been part of the Arabian horse industry since 1986. That was the year I got my very first Arabian, Lucky For Raj+, a 2-year-old black gelding born on Friday, April 13th, in a thunder storm, hence the reason for naming him Lucky! He was purchased from LeLe and Rachel Jurek, who I also give credit in introducing me to the Arabian horse industry and the beginning of my horse show career. Lucky and I had many great years together, he was a tough horse to ride but he taught me a lot, most importantly to never give up, because he never did.

Lucky For Raj+ and Melissa.

I also love to read, and I try to as much as possible; my favorite genre being mystery/suspense-type books. I usually have two to three on my kindle at any given time that I bounce back and forth between. I’ve attempted keeping a vegetable garden, but haven’t had much success as of yet, so I think I’m just going to stick with flowers, I’ve been pretty good with them … so far.

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

a strategy which creates the dreams’ final goal. One must have vision and unwavering determination to see through the completion of a dream, and such dreams become a tradition. Such was the case with William Keith (‘W.K.’) Kellogg’s love for the Arabian horse.


In 1925 Americans were becoming accustomed to a breakfast of crispy cereal—mostly Kellogg Cornflakes—and milk. Cornflakes created W.K. Kelloggs’ wealth; enough to indulge his passion for Arabian horses. Seeking healthy winter living in a temperate climate. Kellogg fulfilled his lifelong dream of creating a sanctuary to breed and keep his treasured Arabians. After considering two locations in Southern Calif. for a winter home, Kellogg purchased 377 acres in Pomona, Calif. for $250,000. Pomona was then a sprawling rancho of citrus groves, and though only about 30 miles east of Los Angeles, all roads led to a country setting of hills and oak trees settling below the steep purple San Gabriel Mountain peaks. Kellogg created a facility for not only breeding Arabian horses, but also to present them to the public. He proudly sought to show off their unique beauty, athletic talents and diversity to all who wished to see them. At first the farm was a magnet for the “Hollywood set.” In early 20th century America, Arabian horses were exotic and rare; at the time only about 800 could be found in all of the U.S. Kellogg Arabians were used on many a Hollywood film set … even Rudolph Valentino’s silent film Son Of The Sheik, featured the romantic star riding the desert sands on Kelloggowned Jadaan, bringing the Kellogg Arabian horses to an intrigued movie going public. Even famed aviator Charles Lindberg, brought attention to the Kellogg Farm by initiating the local airport. Kellogg further raised Arabian horse awareness in 1926 by starting the “Sunday Shows”, a Cal-Poly tradition that continues every year from October through May. Kellogg and his wife spent only seven years at their Pomona winter home and Arabian horse farm; their children weren’t especially interested in Arabian horses and Kellogg was further involved with underprivileged children and creating the Kellogg Foundation. Both would ultimately include Kellogg’s Arabians, but that was yet to mesh. Determined to keep his breeding program operating his way, in 1932 Kellogg donated the then nearly 800-acre Kellogg Arabian Farm and its 87 horses to the University of California.

Volume 46, No. 3 | 271


At nearly 70 years old, Kellogg had strict instructions for continuing his Arabian breeding program and the ever popular Sunday Shows with his donation. The Kellogg Arabians would continue to be a top Southern Calif. tourist attraction by performing their acts in native costume, jumping, western and English riding and humorous equine tricks. Today, California State University-Pomona has the Kellogg Arabian Horse Center (now in its 73rd year) front and center with the help of the Kellogg Foundation and other non-profit donations. Donated stallion breedings have brought new blood to the program, keeping the Kellogg breeding program vital to the Arabian horse industry, thanks to the vision of the former Director, Norman K. Dunn. Still, Kellogg’s breeding origins of domestic and Crabbet bloodstock can still be traced forward to today’s broodmare band. For a tradition to remain vibrant, relevant and desired, change, however, is often a necessity. Though short lived, the advent of World War II saw the Kellogg Arabian Horse Center used as the Pomona Quartermaster Depot by the War Department and assigned to the U.S. Army. War horses were bred on the property during those years, including the acquisition/ importation of 21 Polish Arabian horses, rescued ahead of the Russian army advance onto Poland. One of these horses was the prized stallion Witez II. With the Army ceasing its equine breeding program in 1948, the Kellogg Arabian Horse Center faced a tenuous future. The ranch was transferred to U.S.D.A ownership and much of the bloodstock was dispersed throughout the States. Fortunately, Kellogg’s dream remained alive, thanks to the determined tenacity of the Kellogg Company and Kellogg Foundation. Their dogged lobbying in Washington DC worked to save the farm and the Kellogg Arabian Horse program. The turbulent post war years for the farm saw an Army equine breeding facility converted back to a college setting where, yet again, students learn and live around the beautiful Kellogg Arabian Horse band. We all know it today as the Cal-Poly Pomona Kellogg Arabian Horse Center. Its alumni are spread far and wide through key positions of influence within the Arabian horse industry to this day … far too many to name.

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


With 2015 marking the 90th anniversary of the Kellogg Arabian Horse Farm, it has been a year of celebrating nine decades of existence. The farm currently houses over 100 Arabians, including 13 foals born this year. As the Kellogg Arabian Farm legacy continues, 2015 has also been a year of profound personnel change, the first of which is the hire of nationally acclaimed John Lambert as Head Trainer. Though born about 100 years apart and in two different centuries, one can easily imagine Kellogg and John at first meet, sitting down to an amiable chat. They would realize that much of their lives were spent in Michigan, and that they both share their deep love for the Arabian horse and their sensitive, empathetic nature; pedigrees interwoven through world history, and willingness and unique love for humans. Kellogg and John both honor Arabian horses by preserving their legacy while building for their future. By nature, John is a teacher; always seeking a better future for his horses and those who love them. Reflecting on his training career, John explains, “I am drawn to forward thinking and have been blessed to have mentors who embraced the same. Even when all is going well, I am asking myself about the details … what can be improved? How can we make this better? Clearly the Kellogg Arabian Farm has had many leaders with the same philosophy as reflected by the farm’s astoundingly top notch bloodstock.” John continues, “Despite knowing of the Kellogg Arabian Horse Center (as does anyone in our business), I had never had the opportunity to visit the farm nor had I ever trained or owned any Cal-Poly horses. Michigan State, my alma mater, has an Arabian breeding program too, but I’d had very little direct exposure to the horses from Cal-Poly.” When Bob Battaglia and Ray LaCroix told John about the head trainer position opening, he quickly did some research. The opportunity to be part of the Kellogg Arabian legacy offered top pedigreed horses, an equine friendly facility, long-term staff and continued relationships with his fellow professional peers. “In doing my research of the Cal-Poly Arabians,” John explains, “I was so impressed by the rich history and loving care of these horses. The basic pedigrees of the program remain in place, yet some years ago Norm Dunn had

John Lambert and 2014 U.S. National H/A Pleasure Driving Champion JB Cat Scratch Fever.

the foresight to bring in top notch outside stallions to bred to the Kellogg mares. Continuing to this day, the strategy has strengthened the Kellogg broodmare band and kept top breeders and horsemen in touch with the Kellogg program. We fully intend to embrace this as we go forward.’ Hired June 15th of this year, John had a few days at the farm and then departed to complete previous judging commitments for Regions 13 and 3. John laughs, “Here I am newly hired, and then fly off to perform other jobs! During my off time judging Region 13, I was thinking about the brief time I’d spent at the Kellogg Farm and my initial impressions of how we could go forward.

we would start in early 2016. We had some recipient mares and a few other green broke horses I thought we should sell too. When I returned to work, I pushed hard to put on an exclusive Cal-Poly Arabian Horse Auction through Addis. In fact, we firmed up the Addis Auction the day I left to judge Region 3. Early August was the perfect time for our auction as we were between regionals and Canadian Nationals. We had a scant two weeks to get 18 horses out of pasture, cleaned up, videoed for viewing and vetted before our August 5th auction date. Thanks to our very hard working staff, we were able to pull this off and even exceed expectations!” The first ever Cal-Poly on-line auction reaped nearly $75,000 in sales with a top purchase of $26,000 for 3-year-old mare CP Charmming Notions. The proceeds of the auction will go to support the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center’s operations. Scott Dunn, a member of the committee that advises Cal-Poly Pomona on the Kellogg Arabian Horse Center, feels the university has embarked on a new and exciting era at the center. The first step was the hiring of a nationally recognized trainer in Lambert, he said. “The next piece in the renaissance was this online auction, and by my estimation, there were some very good horses who brought very good prices. I can’t wait to see how they perform for their new owners.” The next step is to fill the now open Kellogg Arabian Horse Center Executive Director position. Interviews are commencing to fill this post. John continues with similar feelings of Dunn, “We have 11 foals due in 2016. It will take about five years for the program to reveal the results of these foals. I’d like to see the Cal-Poly breeding program be the premiere ‘go to’ for top trainers to come in and fight over our young stock. Perhaps we will have an annual sale, perhaps we will show a few of our great young mares we intend to keep for our breeding program. Whatever the tactics will be, the goal is to preserve the Kellogg Arabian legacy, raise its awareness world-wide, and teach students who come to us desiring to work alongside these incredibly special Kellogg Arabians.” n

I

t is the granddaddy of the Arabian futurities we know today. Yes, there were earlier successful futurities—as far back as the 1950s—but they did not survive the decades. The Fall Festival, held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, is the current prototype for the nearly half-dozen top breeders’ payout programs that serve the Arabian industry today. “We’re now in our 34th year,” notes Greg Brown, Show Manager and President of the Minnesota Arabian Horse Breeders Inc. (MAHB), which sponsors the show. “We’re becoming more successful every year. I think that’s because we’ve been innovative and responsive.” The Fall Fest features 37 classes, open to the get of the more than 90 stallions nominated to the Medallion Stallion program each year. Entries are shown by amateur exhibitors only, and competition encompasses halter, western, hunter, saddle seat pleasure and reining. And the prize money is substantial, particularly for the yearling colts and fillies in the auction classes. “This year, we’re offering six more jackpot classes,” says Brown, listing what’s new. “Three are for amateur owners in halter and three are for performance champions. We’re allowing champions to come back and compete against their peers.” Overall, the Minnesota Fall Festival offers an estimated $250,000 in prize money, with about $50,000 earmarked for performance titles. But the significant cash is not the top story. As Brown observes, the show is also known for its sense of community. There is so much social action that this year management is moving the Patrons’ Lounge, typically in the coliseum, to the barn area, so that no one misses any fun.

Some of the show’s attraction is simply its strong Medallion Stallion program. “Last year we were up 30 percent in the auction,” Brown reports. One reason, he says, is that 2014 saw the addition of 4-year-old, Medallion Stallion auction-exclusive performance classes. “That drove up the prices. We got a lot of very positive feedback.” The auction itself historically has had a strong following. “We are the only futurity that I know of where all nominated stallions go to the

“The main aisle of the barn has been made into a lounge, with furniture and televisions, like a big family room,” Brown explains. “We serve everyday to everyone. For patrons, high-top tables will be provided at the location of their choice, and the complimentary catering will be delivered to them. The idea is to make it easier for patrons to mingle and converse with their friends and clients.”

live auction,” he says. “No one has to reach a minimum bid online; everybody goes to the auction, everybody gets the same publicity. And we also continue to pay stallion owners 10 percent of what their offspring produce in the auction classes.” What can be expected in the future? “We remain very well funded,” he says. “We are funded for several years out, so we don’t spend money we don’t have. We will be around for a long time.”

One technique Brown and the MAHB show committee use to ensure consistent success is to pay attention to the feedback they get. These days, he says, what they hear pretty much reflects their philosophy. “One, without question, is that we have a reputation for being fair. And two, our sense of community. We want everybody who comes to the Fall Festival, whether they have a horse or not, to have a good time and we hope they talk to their friends about it. If you come to the Fall Festival, you will be welcome.” n

AmAteur Spotlight ... PAIGE NOLTE If you could be anyone for one day, who would it be and why? I would want to be Reed Kessler. She was on the 2012 Unites States Olympic jumping team and I wouldn’t mind having all her horses for one day. What are the similarities between yourself and your horse? My horse Pistal and I share a nickname of “P”. Other than the nickname, the most common similarity I share between my horses is that we are all goofs outside the show arena, but we all know when it is time to focus. We also really like our food. What makes you happiest? When I am able to put a smile on someone else’s face. It makes me feel so good and so happy; it might be one of the best feelings. What do you most value in your friends? Your horses? I value integrity the most in my friends. In horses I value heart. Horses with a huge heart are once-in-a-lifetime horses. I value in both of them their abilities to constantly put a smile on my face! Which living person do you most admire? I most admire my parents. They are the two hardest working people I know and have always supported me in all my decisions in life. I am so thankful for the two greatest parents in the world. What is your motto? My favorite motto that I always say to myself is to never be afraid. I try to never be afraid to go after crazy dreams or even fail on my way to reaching them. 300 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

What is your most treasured memory with the Arabian horse? This is a hard question, I have so many great memories with Arabians. My most treasured moment would be Canadian Nationals in 2011. This was a very unusual nationals for me since both my parents were unable to attend. During nationals my mother was going through her last chemotherapy for Leukemia back in Minnesota, and my father stayed behind to take care of things. I ended up winning both my western pleasure classes and I was able to get the announcer to say that I had dedicated my rides to my mother. When I got home there were “Mom of National Champ” signs in my room. My mom’s nurses had made them for her after watching my classes on the live stream with her. It was a very touching memory for my family and I. What is your very first memory with the Arabian horse? Well … I was almost 5 years old and was just starting to take lessons on a new horse named Lefty. About half way through the lesson, Lefty decided he didn’t want to cooperate anymore and bucked me off. Unfortunately, my foot got caught in the stirrup and I was drug on the ground around the arena for a while. Jenny, who was giving me the lesson, picked me up off the ground and told me I had to get back on. I didn’t question her and got right back up and finished. Lefty didn’t get any treats after that lesson.


If you could show one horse from the past, who would you show and why? I would show my first horse Moosey again. We were only able to compete in one show season together, I was 6 years old and he was four. He was one of the best horses a little girl could ask for; he just took care of me both inside the arena and out. I still hold him very close to my heart. If you could have one super power, what would it be and why? Teleportation, because I live far away from everything and it would be nice to be able to just teleport anywhere I wanted to. What is the most memorable piece of show ring advice you’ve ever received? Just keep riding, when something goes wrong in a class you can’t stop riding your horse because you never know, possibly the judges didn’t see or the other riders made a mistake as well. If you stopped riding your horse, you could beat yourself. What would be your ultimate dream job? To become an equine chiropractor. I will begin my education this fall at the University of Wisconsin River Falls, and I couldn’t be more excited to begin. What do you love most about showing Arabian horses? Most of all I love to compete and work with Arabians, but I really love meeting people who love horses just as much as I do and having such a wonderful extended horse family! Who has had the biggest influence in your involvement with Arabians? Jenny Johnson and her family started me in riding Arabians and actually sold me my first horse. When they sold us the horse, she requested that we go to a trainer because we were both young. That trainer was Sarah Paripovich, who I have been training with ever since. Sarah has also had a huge influence in my involvement with Arabians because she has taught me so much about horses and understanding them. What piece of advice would you give to the 10-year-old version of yourself ? The 10-year-

old version of myself … work hard, stay focused, and never be afraid to go after your wildest dreams! The 40-year-old version … congrats! You’ve somehow survived four decades. Even though you have survived those four decades, you will probably still fail at things, but that is how you ultimately succeed. What have you learned from riding and showing that has helped you in other areas of your life? That you’re going to lose sometimes, but it all pays off eventually. Horses have also taught me a lot of patience and hard work is the key to everything in all aspects of life. Special thanks and appreciation to: my parents, Sarah Paripovich, the Arabian Horse Times, and everyone who supports and cheers me on! n Volume 46, No. 3 | 301

Dear Mama H, We are not lucky to have you, or happy that we have you—we are blessed beyond words to have someone who cares about us as much as you do. You make sure every detail is taken care of; you fix every emergency, you feed us when we forget to eat, and hug us when we need to cry. Showing horses is our passion, but it wouldn’t be quite as special without you. Thank you for everything you do and for genuinely loving and caring about each of us! We love you!! —Dalton, Kellie and all of your SSH kids

AmAteur Spotlight ... Sarah Esqueda

What are the similarities between yourself and your horses? My horses and I are very hard working and dedicated. We always put our heart and soul into the arena. I can trust them with my life and I know they trust me. What makes you happiest? When I’m in Arizona with my horses; it’s nothing but pure joy. What do you most value in your friends? Your horses? I admire their loyalty and always being there for me when I need them the most. Which living person do you most admire? My trainer Cynthia Burkman. I’ve been in Cynthia’s barn since I was six year old. She is like a second mother to me. After everything she’s been through, she still does what she loves most and that’s being a horse trainer. I’ve never met someone so incredible and as dedicated as she is. What is your motto? “Ride to Win.” What is your most treasured memory with the Arabian horse? I have two. The first was at U.S. Nationals in 2011 when our horse we bred, HP Guns and Roses, won his purebred hunter futurity class. It was his second show 314 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

ever and seeing him in the winner’s circle was something I’ll never forget. My second treasured memory was when I was National Champion at Youth Nationals this year with my horse Big Time DDA, in the Half-Arabian Hunter Pleasure. I told my trainer before we left for nationals, that I wanted to win on Big Time the most. Big and I have waited three years for that moment, and it was definitely worth the wait! What is your very first memory with the Arabian horse? When I was five years old my parents bought me my first Arabian horse, ETC Cracklin Rosy. She is now retired at Cynthia’s place enjoying life. If you could have one super power, what would it be and why? To be able to read minds. I would love to know what other people think. Also, I would know what the judges think while I’m showing! What is the most memorable piece of show ring advice you’ve ever received? “Always have fun when you’re riding.” If you’re not having fun when riding or get that special feeling inside of you when getting called champion, then you should find a different sport. What would be your ultimate dream job? I don’t have that decided yet. As long as I can still show my horses and I am able to afford them, then I know I did something right. What do you love most about showing Arabian horses? I love the thrill it gives me when riding them. For each of my horses, I


have set a personal goal, and every time I go out in the arena I hope to achieve that goal.

school isn’t a bad thing at all.” Also, to stay away from boys and ride more horses.

Who has had the biggest influence in your involvement with Arabians? There’s not just one person. Everyone in my family participates in the Arabian horse world and we are always looking forward to the next show. Without my parents and grandparents, I wouldn’t be involved with the Arabian horse at all. Also, my trainer Cynthia Burkman, because without her pushing and cheering me on, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

I would tell my 40-year-old self, “I hope to look back and be happy with what I have accomplished in life.”

What piece of advice would you give to the 10-year-old version of yourself ? The 40-year-old version of yourself ? I would say to my 10-year-old self, “Don’t worry what people think of you. Being the “horse girl” at

What have you learned from riding and showing that has helped you in other areas of your life? Riding and showing Arabian horses has really made me the confident person I am today. It has also influenced my plans for where I will be attending college this fall. I will be pursuing a degree in Equine Science at SCC in Scottsdale, Ariz. My family is excited about my move and the expansion of Highland Pride Arabians, Inc. to include both California and Arizona. I feel like I’m already living my American dream! n Volume 46, No. 3 | 315

2015 Youth Nationals

2015 YOUTH NATIONALS Final Year in Albuquerque, New Mexico by CHRISTY EGAN

The Youth National Championship Show was 23 years old in 2015 and celebrated its final year at the Fairgrounds in Albuquerque, N.M., after fifteen years at that venue. The show is headed back to Oklahoma City, where it spent the first eight years of its life. This year the show ran from July 18th through the 25th, eight days and its entries numbered just over 800 horses. In 2000, the first year the show appeared in Albuquerque, it ran the same number of days with just over 900 horses. The 2000 show featured 96 classes and each horse averaged 2.6 classes apiece with 24.4 horses average per class. The 2015 show featured 163 classes and each horse averaged 3.1 classes apiece with 15.2 horses average per class. What does it mean? In 2015 there were fewer go-forwards and lighter classes in some divisions; fewer stalls and smaller classes with more horses taking on larger numbers of classes. But the real difference between the year 2000 and 2015 could honestly be measured in the extraordinary quality of the horses and the competition.

Volume 46, No. 3 | 319


“I judged the Youth National Show on one other occasion [1999],” notes Greg Gallún. “The show has grown tremendously since then. It seemed to be a relatively new show back then. This year the horse power and the skill of the exhibitors were light years ahead. As judges we were placing 10 or 11 riders and horses in the classes. It seemed to me that we could have placed up to 15 and been appropriate. The skill and obvious dedication of the riders was impressive. I was frankly inspired.” Gallún’s fellow panel judge at the show, Ted Carson agrees. “It was a long eight days, but fascinating to watch. It’s really not easy for children to stay focused for long periods like that. It’s impressive. When I think about all of the great rides, strong competitors and superb horses I saw at this show, I begin to wonder. Where do these great young people

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

go when they graduate? What are they accomplishing in their lives as they grow up? The competition is so deep at this show; it’s inspirational. In the Saddle Seat Equitation 14-18, 6 or 8 different kids could have won it. It came down to nuance. They were all incredibly good, and as a judge, I was forced to focus utterly on each specific ride at the moment it was being performed. I was very proud to be at the show; to be a part of the Youth National show’s judging team.” Mickey Hegg, Youth National Show Commission Chair, spoke for the six board members that make up that group. “The Arabian Youth National Championship Show has concluded in Albuquerque for the 15th year. We had good public attendance, especially on the final afternoon

and evening. Included in the crowd were some members of the New Mexico Horse Council and Legislators. They had just been on a two-day tour of various horse facilities and events, verifying how important horses are in contributing to the New Mexican economy. One of these folks made the comment that it was his first time to see an Arabian National Show of any description. Our national shows have been there since 1974, and he was seeing one on the very last night! His admission that he had truly missed a wonderful show with beautiful horses and talented equestrians was an understatement. At least he didn’t miss it! “Youth Nationals 2015 was a great show—kind of bittersweet—but the anticipation of holding the 24th Arabian Youth National Championship Show back where it all began in Oklahoma City, is being looked forward to with great fondness. Again this year we had a good number of exhibitors ‘graduating’ out of Youth Nationals and we wish them the very best.” The Youth National Championship Show in Albuquerque has always been noted for its additional activities, and

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


2015 Youth Nationals 2015 was no exception. On Thursday afternoon, July 16th, Lisa Jo White and Laurie Long gave APAHA Clinics in the Horse Arena. On Friday morning, Stan Morey, AHA’s Judges and Stewards Commissioner, was back by popular demand with his Judging School for youth exhibitors and their parents, complete with powerpoint presentation and take-home materials. That was followed on Friday afternoon by the AHYA Convention, and all that happened before the show even started! On Sunday afternoon, the Golf Cart Parade took to the streets of the Fairgrounds for the first time and gave its best impression of a real, downtown Macy’s-style parade. It was terrific. The winning float was Region 9 with its live Mariachi Band, a perfect tip-of-the-sombrero to New Mexico, the show’s host for so many years. That delightful event was followed by the annual ice cream social for all ages and (this year) a piñata “bashing” for the littlest kids. There were a half-a-dozen others during the course of the show, including the Stick Horse workshop and contest, the Flying Pigs AHYA fundraiser, the Dog Costume contest, dog races and more. The AHA Marketing department also pulled out all of the stops to encourage social media participation as well. Youthful herself, Julian McPeak, AHA Director of Marketing, was very innovative in her approach and specific “kid” focus at the Youth National Championships. “Social media is primarily ruled by the youth. They are on it all of the time … everywhere. Social media is here to stay and as marketers we must adapt the messages we are sending to function fluidly across social media channels. In the past we have depended a great deal on Facebook and Twitter for our Youth National’s Social Media approach,” Julian says. “After some front end research demographics to determine platform, we decided the youth could be more readily reached by our being very active on Instagram and Snapchat, with Twitter and Facebook more secondary. We initiated a contest called ‘Frame-It’, using life size frames around the fairgrounds. There was a ‘Selfie’ Contest called ‘Joe at the Show’ where you had to find ‘Joe’ and take a picture. We sent out announcements to invite youth and their parents to participate at various events by posting media on a hashtag. Prizes for the various contests included a GoPro Camera, gift cards, limited edition Breyer models and AHA swag bags. We got great response.”

A Long History At Youth Nationals In the year 2000, the oldest horse at the Youth National Championships was Dhina Mite (Serinask x Ga-Ghandina), a 23-year-old grey Arabian gelding. He competed in English pleasure JOTR. In 2015, the oldest horse at the show was GS Knight Wind (Crimson Knight x GSA Wind Allure), a 27-year-old grey Arabian gelding. Owned by Laurie and Macie Long, GS Knight Wind has been shown at the Youth Nationals every year since 1998 (17 straight years) and competed in showmanship and western horsemanship at this year’s show. “I bought GS Knight Wind in 1998 for my daughters Mistie and Macie to show,” says Laurie Long. “For years, Mistie showed ‘Casper’ in western pleasure at Youth while Macie enjoyed competing with him in the walk/trot division. Now my great niece, Brinley Beicker, is showing him in showmanship. He competed consistently at Youth under saddle through 2013 when I decided to limit him to showmanship. This year Brinley went reserve national champion with him in the showmanship JTH 10 & under. Another little girl, Emilee Broussard, showed him to a top ten in the showmanship JTH 11-13. When Emilee’s other horse could not go into the western horsemanship, Emilee asked if she could ride ‘Casper’. I hesitated. He was retired and had not been ridden much at all since 2013, but Knight Wind was game. His old bridle was being used by another horse in the barn, so we borrowed it back for the class. Emilee rode him a couple of times, practiced the pattern twice and went in. He took her to reserve national champion and seemed rather pleased with himself. What other breed has this type of horse? They last forever! I could not have found a better horse anywhere for my children.”

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

Macie Long and GS Knight Wind.

GS Knight Wind has been a show horse since 1991, when he was three. He won his first championship at his first show in western pleasure junior horse. At his first Youth Nationals, he and Mistie were reserve national champion in the western pleasure JOTR 13 & under. He has been national champion and reserve multiple times in side saddle western, western horsemanship, western pleasure, showmanship, and other classes. Laurie, her children, Mistie and Macie, and other children have all ridden him to major titles at Youth, Canada and the U.S. Nationals. At one time he was listed as a top, overall western pleasure horse in the United States.


2015 Youth Nationals

At the end of the day, of course, the special events and entertainment take second place to the show’s main attraction: horses and competition. The judges are in the thick of this particular spotlight for many hours a day. They saw a lot they will remember, but some special moments do stand out. “I was on the English panel for the show,” says Ted Carson, “and my favorite classes included a marvelous gelding named DA Heatstroke and his rider Holland Stevens. The pair won both the English Pleasure JOTR and JTR 14-18. That horse should have been a mare or a stallion. What an incredible animal!” Greg Gallún was strongly affected by his long week as a judge at the 2015 Youth Nationals. It began the first morning of the first day. “I walked into the arena the first morning and was hit by that excited ‘gut’ feeling of really being at the Nationals. I haven’t had a feeling like that in a while. The Tingley Arena at Albuquerque has 40 years of great history with the Arabian horse. Lots of legends trotted through that in gate; great show horses, beautiful horses. Among the 2015 memories I will never forget is the Arabian Saddle Seat Equitation JTR 14-18 class. I took notice of a very polished horse and rider team during the rail work and had them high on my list to watch. She happened to be the first one in to ride the pattern. The horse jumped and stopped and she fell. When we ran to help her, she said she wasn’t hurt. Because saddle seat riders are allowed to continue after a fall, she dusted herself off, got on her horse and went right back to work. I was amazed; the determination and competence she displayed. So many riders would have given

Kinkela Harkins and Casting Crowns up or just gone through the motions. It was so impressive. It’s not always about the ribbon, it’s about the job and she did it with excellence.” The girl was Kinkela Harkins and the horse was Casting Crowns DFA, a mare that she had borrowed specifically for the class from Stachowski, Inc. and its owners, Scott and Michelle Harris, late the previous night. “Casting Crowns had no experience as an equitation horse but her rail work was perfect. Unfortunately, she had never been alone in the show ring before that evening and it upset her,” Kinkela says. “We got down to the end of the ring and she balled up, hopped once and leaped forward. I bounced off her neck, hit the ground and she stepped on my right arm. I got up, indicated to the judges that I was determined to finish my ride, and accepted a leg up on the horse. I’d never fallen in the show

ring before. I should thank Wyatt Budd for suggesting the horse to me, helping me with her and running into the ring to help me when I hit the dirt. I am very grateful to him. It was so much fun during the class.” Kinkela began her freshman year at Johns Hopkins University just a few days before the start of Canadian Nationals. Everyone in her immediate family is a physician. Her goal is to join them. “I’ve been riding since I was three and have competed at eight Youth National Championship shows,” Kinkela says. “My mother and my older sister will be riding our horses at the U.S. Nationals this year. I hope to ride next spring and maybe show at the Buckeye.” A special 2015 Youth National Championship moment also happened for Scottsdale-based Western trainer Jessica Bein, her family, and a rider she coached at the show. Her daughter, 8-year-old McKenna Bein, rode their home-bred Arabian mare, Tsimmer Down Now, to Youth National Championship roses in the Trail Walk/Trot 10 & Under. “When Tsimmer Down Now was foaled, McKenna was just a babe-in-arms,” says Jessica. “Tsimmer’s dam was delivering badly and we were trying to push the foal back in so it could re-position. It’s hard work, so McKenna’s dad, David and I, were taking turns holding McKenna and trying to help the mare and foal. It was a very special moment for our family to share; one I will never forget. Fast forward eight years and McKenna and that foal (that almost did not make it) are both in the ring at Youth Nationals. To have McKenna and Tsimmer take a national championship at Youth was an incredible moment for all of us and for Tsimmer’s owner, Ashlye Daniels, a brand new owner and lover of the Arabian breed.” The rider Jessica coached at Youth was 13-year-old Karoline Lewis. Her mother tells the story of how her daughter, a dressage and working hunter/hunter pleasure rider became fascinated with western style riding and particularly reining. “She would drag us off to watch the reining at whatever show we were attending,” laughs Kathryn Lewis. “Kari’s dad (Tony Lewis) works for AHA at the national show and he caught up with Jessica Bein and talked her into a lesson for Kari. Now, Jessica Bein could have said she didn’t have time to give our daughter that first lesson

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


2015 Youth Nationals (heaven knows she probably didn’t). She could have felt it was unimportant, but she said ‘yes.’ She shared her horse, time, talent and love for the horses and the sport of reining. And two years later when Hollywood Playboy came into our lives and we were aiming at Youth Nationals, Jessica could have refused to coach Kari at Youth. After all, we didn’t have horses in training with her. Instead, she stuck with Kari through eight straight days of lessons every morning at 6:30 am. They were lessons that helped our daughter achieve her goals and dreams beyond all of our imagining. “Karoline took Hollywood Playboy to co-national champion honors in Half-Arabian Reining Horse JOTR 13 & Under, co-reserve in Half-Arabian Reining Horse JTR 13 & Under and top ten. Kari also showed Zulu LOA (owned by Karoline’s Hollywood Playboy, Karoline, her sisters Kate and Klaire, and parents sister, Klaire) to reserve national champion and Kathryn and Tony Lewis. four top tens in Dressage, and Beyond the Seaz (owned by Karoline’s cousin, Kaylan Herbst) to a national championship and a reserve in Dressage, Fairground courtyards on the main street for many years, as well as five top ten awards. The week after Youth was eloquent about his time spent with the kids this year. Nationals, Kari, who is in 4-H, showed one of her piglets “The last two days and the Sunday following the show’s at the County Fair and won $1,500. When reporters final day are always very intense for me,” Scott laughs. asked what she would do with the money she immediately “While I am taking their pictures, the kids fill me in on a responded, ‘I’m saving for a trip to Scottsdale to work with lot of what is happening at the show. For instance, I can my reining trainer!’ Put a light in the window Jessica … tell you that there were several monumental water fights company’s coming!” in the barns this year.

kids for 12 to 14 hours each day, I am also videotaping them for a series I am doing on the Arabian horse. It’s in conjunction with AHA and the Horsemen’s Distress Fund, tentatively entitled: 12 People - 12 Horses - 12 Stories. I asked the kids a series of questions and one of

them was, ‘What’s so special about your Arabian horse?’ You have only to listen to their answers to understand why our horses are unique among equines on earth. I had to chuckle though, one little 8-year-old said, ‘My horse is special because he always keeps my secrets.’ Another answered, ‘My horse is great. He knows that all I can do is walk and trot, so that’s all he does!’ All of the kids at that show really have it together. They are our future and they are delightful and amazing.” Trainer Joel Kiesner beautifully expressed a consensus of sentiments that we all undoubtedly share about the show. “The Youth Nationals is a great show. It’s super competitive. Truly one of the really great things we’ve got going for us as a breed. The kids that go through this show end up with a love for the horse that seems destined to last a lifetime. I walk away from the Youth Nationals each year remembering why I am a trainer … the kids always remind me about love for the horses, sportsmanship, true friendship and love of competition. I get to remember all over again the joy of the beginning, what it felt like when I started and why I am sharing my life with Arabian horses.” n

In Memoriam

©Vesty Photo

Assault N Battery+ (1991-2015) This bay Half-Arabian had a joy for life and spent 14 years competing in English pleasure and ladies side saddle English where he amassed five national championships, eight reserve national championships, and an additional 18 top tens. “Salty,” owned by Conway Arabians, Inc. of Chatfield, Minn., came into the family shortly before Peter Conway’s daughter, Anna Conway-Zaffke’s 14th birthday. “When my dad told me they were looking at him for a possible show horse for me, I immediately found a picture of him in my stack of Arabian Horse Times magazines. I cut it out and wore it in my pocket, where it stayed far past our first meeting,” Conway-Zaffke said. Salty, who was sired by Saddlebred Lost Kingdom and out of Kluzette, a Kluszyn daughter, carried Anna to her first national championship, and many more. “My sister will tell you that upon winning our first one, I cried so much she started to feel as though she needed to comfort me. Something she still likes to tease me about to this day,” she says. And when Anna’s own children were born, she introduced them to Salty. “I let my boys sit on him bareback. In fact, one of my son Felix’s very first words was, ‘Salty.’” “I have so many memories of just growing up with him. He was really with me for all the major moments in my life. No words can fully capture the joy and energy that Salty exuded or the grand effect he had on my life,” Anna said. 368 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Ames Mirage (1996-2015) A special bond existed between Lollie Ames and Ames Mirage (Brass, by *Bask+ x Afire Inmy Eyes), the chestnut Arabian mare who produced top-of-the-line offspring. “They belonged to each other,” says Jeff Wallace. “There definitely existed that magical bond between woman and horse.” Ames Mirage, owned by Dick and Lollie Ames of Cedar Ridge Arabians, produced multiple national champions and she herself won a regional reserve championship and top five in halter. “Affectionately thought of as the gold standard broodmare at Cedar Ridge, she was the ‘Goose that laid the Golden Eggs,’” continues Wallace. “Foal after foal, national champion after national champion. She was specific, predictable and direct in the attributes she passed on to her offspring. Her crosses with Magnum Psyche and Marwan were some of the very best, in my opinion.” Her offspring include Sir Marwan CRF, Angel Eyes TM, Magnum Showcase CRF, Xanthuss, Divine Destinee GA, Ames Image, and Ames Charisma, a national and international champion stallion. Wallace ends with, “She was not only an absolute beauty to look at, but also extremely friendly and good natured.”


In Memoriam

Carry On+/ (1986-2015) The grey gelding was the catalyst to getting Lori and Carey Lawrence, Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., back into horses in the spring of 1999. Lawrence’s friend encouraged her to see this gelding at The Cal Poly Equine Center. “He was the most beautiful horse I’d ever seen,” Lawrence said. “We didn’t have a trainer and I hadn’t ridden saddle seat in years, but something told me to just do it.” In October, just five months later, Lawrence and Carry On (Reign On x Spring Fiesta) were top ten in a deep country English pleasure class. “It was my first U.S. National Top Ten and it was as meaningful to me as any of my subsequent unanimous national championships. It was a surreal experience. We paid a nominal amount of money for him and achieved this accomplishment in such a short time frame. Fate put us together. It’s pretty unusual to have everything fall into place like that.” Soon afterwards, Lori’s daughter Nicole, at the age of 9, began showing “Stretch” in country English pleasure, native costume, and halter. They earned a Scottsdale championship, two reserve national championships and five additional top tens. “I have never seen a performance horse as beautiful as he was,” shares Lawrence. “He is the reason we are so consumed with the breed today. He would always greet me in the morning at the barn—he already is missed greatly.”

SF Spellbound (2001-2015) SF Spellbound (Afire Bey V x Spectra PR) owned by Bruce and Karna Trautman of Minneapolis, Minn., was their daughter Lana’s first horse. In 2014, Lana and “Spud” won a Youth National championship, Lana’s first. “Instead of shying away from the rose garland, Spud proudly stuck out his neck,” Lana remembers. “He helped me achieve my dreams,” Lana says. “He taught me that if you think you can do it, you can. He embodied the philosophy of ‘tiny but mighty.’ Every time you got in the saddle, you knew he was going to try his best for you. He wanted to win just as much as I did, and it showed through in his determination in both the show ring and the practice arena. Riding Spud was like riding a little sports car, except the sports car thought he was the biggest horse out there.” In total, the bay Arabian gelding amassed three national championships, one reserve national championship, and eight additional national top tens in country English pleasure, English pleasure (all age groups), and pleasure driving. Trainer Leah Beth Golladay says, “We enjoyed watching Lana learn and grow with him. He was the perfect show horse for her and their national championship last year was the perfect conclusion to their time together. I believe he won a national championship for every amateur that rode him—in three different divisions.”
