Wherever You Are—The Common Bond Of Arabian Horses In June, on behalf of AHT, I spent 10 days in Italy and France, visiting people and farms, and attending the famous Menton Arabian Horse Show (the Mediterranean & Arab Countries Arabian Horse Championships). The show, as you know if you follow international competition, is held in the south of France and is famous for its beautiful ambience and terrific horses, and I can truthfully say that it lived up to its reputation. It was a treat to be there. That said, when I remember my trip, I think it will be the personal farm visits that stand out the most, and here’s why. With each stop, I realized more and more what a global language Arabian horses offer us. Across my travels—I was privileged to see Giacomo Capacci, Paolo Capecci, and Gigi Grasso’s operations—I found that everyone had the same love and passion for the Arabian breed. My only disappointment was that I didn’t have time to call at more farms and talk horses with more people. I was reminded that every time we, as Arabian horse people, get together, we strengthen our industry. It’s not about exotic locales; it’s about our horses and our mutual commitment to the breed. Every time we express that face-to-face, we learn and we enjoy our horses, as well as each other. We, as individuals and a community, are better for it. We don’t have to be out of the country or even out of town to do that. We could all be doing more of it in our local areas and when we are on trips anywhere. Let’s visit our neighbors. Let’s call not only our friends, but those owners and breeders we don’t know, and let’s discuss our horses. When you visit with people at shows and events, they can be very busy, but if you set up a personal appointment, you can learn a lot about someone’s breeding program. Education from others is never a bad thing. The bottom line is that people love to share their Arabian horses with the public. What I loved most about my farm visits in Italy was listening to Giacomo and Paolo and Gigi speak about their experiences with the Arabian horse and sharing their passion for the breed.

COUNTDOWN TO THE

ARABIAN

C E L E B R AT I O N AND

NORTH AMERICAN HALTER CHAMPIONSHIPS by Ann Stratton

L

ess than two months to go and as enthusiasm mounts, the Arabian Horse Celebration and North American Halter Championships, scheduled for Labor Day weekend in Louisville, Ky., is gearing up. “We are expecting an especially strong number of entries in the futurity and amateur maturity classes,” notes Bob Battaglia, Celebration President. What’s driving it? A combination of the new opportunities offered this year, as well as the show’s status as an event, he says. As well as its top competition, the Celebration is known for its seminars and youth workshop, demonstrations, a knockout stallion row, great vendors, and a battery of sale horses available for inspection. Put it all together, and headlines are written. The biggest story this year is the addition of the North American Halter Championships, developed by the Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance (ABHA), best known for its World Cup show in Las Vegas. “We’re anticipating that those titles will be coveted worldwide,” Battaglia says. “What the AHBA has achieved with the World Cup has lent it international credibility, and the aim is to meet those standards here as well.” A special feature of the Celebration’s halter competition will be that handlers are allowed to show multiple entries (unusual at Arabian horse shows), but in keeping with AHBA World Cup procedures.

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


The performance divisions also include unique elements, most notably that the show will present amateur grand championships. “Usually all classes are part of the framework leading up to the open championships,” Battaglia explains, “but Arabian amateur divisions are so good now that we feel they deserve recognition on a par with what our professionals enjoy.” And the Celebration’s western, English and country English divisions offer an attraction found nowhere else, he adds. “This is the only place that an amateur can show their 4 and 5 year olds in a maturity class.” The Arabian Horse Celebration and North American Halter Championships are scheduled for September 3-6, 2015, in Freedom Hall.. The judges are Scott Brumfield, Debbie Cain and Paul Kostial (U.S.A.), Sylvia Eberhardt (Germany) and Murilo Kammer (Brazil) for halter, while performance will be officiated by Brumfield, Kostial, and Richard Petty. “The prize list is online, and entries close August 7,” says Battaglia. “Please get your entries in as soon as possible.” ■

FACES & PLACES F P Prov i n g t h at t he st a r s e ven c ome out du r i n g t he d ay, Gia c omo C apac ci A r a bi a n s’ Open Hou s e left all who attended awestruck at the parade of legendary horses presented, a few days after the recent show in Menton. Giacomo has propelled himself to the top level of the breed through years of commitment to excellence. The Open House at his facility in Cortona, Italy, was a highlight for many who were participants on the European show circuit and all were eager to see the equine stars and legends. The presentation began in a lovely way, with the exquisite straight Egyptian mare Al Halah AA meandering through the crowd and around the property under Western tack. A classic grey and a product of Laheeb and The Vision, Al Halah AA is owned by Ariela Arabians. But it was the appearance of Gazal Al Shaqab and his sons and grandsons that was truly mind-boggling. In a breeding parade that brought the most successful modern sire line to life with several generations of examples, the undeniable ability of the line to breed true was blatantly obvious.

FACES & PLACES Gazal Al Shaqab and his legendary son Marwan Al Shaqab were joined by several internationally acclaimed Marwan sons including: twice World Gold Champion Stallion Kahil Al Shaqab, United States National Champion, Las Vegas Gold Supreme Champion, Scottsdale Grand Champion and 2015 Menton Gold Champion Stallion Hariry Al Shaqab, World, Dubai, Menton and twice Aachen Gold Champion Stallion Eks Alihandro and World Junior Champion Stallion Wadee Al Shaqab. The continuity of contemporary beauty and the highest level of quality existing in all of them is why this sire line has had and will continue to have such a profound affect on the breed worldwide. Almost as fascinating as the horses were the people who showed up to see them. From the Italian treasure that is world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli, to the contingent from Al Shaqab, the stars really did twinkle in daylight. Other prominent breeders from all over the world were also on hand to see the spectacular stallions and to support Giacomo Capacci as the stellar horseman that he is. n

PRESENTING THE PERSONALITIES TOM AND GLENN SCHOUKENS Schoukens Training Center • Belgium with JEFF WALLACE

Tom and Glenn Schoukens at the 2015 Menton Show.

Tell us a little bit about the first time you laid eyes on an Arabian horse. Who was the horse? T&G: The horses name was Saint Valentine that our father Denis bought from Woodsalls. He was a liver chestnut Crabbet-bred Arabian stallion bought in 1981. When was the first time you showed in the United States? G: In 2002 with TS Pstyln, a Psytadel daughter. T: Also in 2002, with a Color of Fame daughter named Guilty Pleasures.

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

What is your favorite Arabian horse destination? G: I absolutely love Scottsdale, Arizona. T: For me, it is the country of Poland. If you had not become famous halter trainers, what would you have become? Without a doubt, the answer would be landscape architects. We both love trees and beautiful landscape, and our father totally agrees to this truth. Tell me a special memory with just you and your father, as well as one with just you and your brother.


T: In 2001 we went to the Scottsdale show, and from there we drove to Las Vegas; a big group of us. My wife Cathy says it was a very “Thelma and Louise”-type road trip. We visited Wayne Newton Arabians and saw two very memorable horses for both Glenn and I—Arn-ette Perlane and WN Fawn Obsession. It was a very memorable trip for the whole family. Do you have any other siblings? If yes, do they also love the horses? G: Yes, we have a younger brother, Kim. My father has two interests, computers and Arabian horses. Tom and I took after his interest in the Arabian horse and Kim took after his interest of computers. He lives in Brussels and is very involved in the computer industry. How has the internet and the Middle East in your mind, changed the Arabian breed forever? T: The Middle East is now where most of the great Arabians of our time live. They have also become, and are continuing to become, some of our best breeders in the world. Also, the internet has made us one big happy family around the world. Though it comes with its pros and cons, which we are all aware of at this point, it has globalized the breed. If you could resurrect any two horses, who would they be and why? T&G: We saw Arn-ette Perlaine the year before he died; a revolutionary horse. He was such a typey horse, way ahead of his time. Also, *El Shaklan, WN Fawn Obsession and ZT Shak Jamara. Lastly would be Karmaa, the foundation mare of Mulawa; for sure one of the most beautiful mares we have ever seen. And even though he is still living, we really appreciate Ashhal Al Rayyan. It is a shame that Ashhal did not breed more outside mares throughout his entire life. Who have your mentors been in the Arabian breed? T&G: First and foremost is our dad, Denis, for introducing us to the Arabian horse and taking us along on so many of his trips to horse shows and farm visits. Fernando Poli taught us the first steps of schooling a horse and how to keep our place clean.

Tom and Glenn Schoukens

He was actually a very strict and wonderful teacher. He also started us on developing a deep appreciation on the importance of conditioning our horses. We also spent a month working with Fernando while he was at La Movida, when we were 16 and 14 years old. Then came the influence of Bob Boggs which was equally as important to us in many ways. We have always used training centers like Midwest Station I as a measuring stick; they are just one of the best. What does your dream horse look like? G: It would have the neck of RH Triana coupled with a ton of attitude, as that seems often to be 90% of the horse anyway. T: It would be the perfect blend of SA Misha Apal with Najdah Al Zobair and Excalibur EA, with a layer of Jasmeenah on top. When you look at mares such as Pinga who possess such a rich and deep history, what goes through your mind? T&G: When Pinga and El Dorada arrived at our farm, it was, of course, very exciting. They represent so much importance and history to our breed. Both mares are simply breathtaking. Yet it is important

Volume 46, No. 2 | 69


T: Off course, any of my big wins were very emotional to me, my first World Champion title with Najdah Al Zobair, and my first All Nations Cup Champion title with Pandoraah will always remain very special. Though it is not only this that can bring tears to your eyes, sometimes it can be when you walk through the fields or late at night through the barn. Sometimes you only realize the true beauty of some of them. We were fortunate to have some of the most amazing horses in the world passing through our barn. Tom and Glenn Schoukens

for us to say that all horses are treated the same at Schoukens Training Center. What two or three changes would you like to see happen for the betterment of this breed during your lifetime? T: I would like to see breeders become more serious about widening our gene pool. It seems that it is a bit too small today, and that concerns us. Which Arabian horse’s beauty touched you so deeply that it brought tears to your eyes?

How do you feel listening to people complain about different major horse shows? G: People complain about every horse show. I know they are making changes this year to Aachen, but for us, Aachen is always a wonderful show no matter what. What are your thoughts about breeding to the fashionable stallions of years ago via their frozen semen? T: In terms of frozen semen to dead stallions, I really prefer to only breed forward. However, my exception would be Padrons Psyche—I would always breed to him whether living or gone. ■

World Travels with Jeff Wallace

Eu ro pe a n Su m m er To ur of 20 15 About 15 years ago, while living and working outside the Arabian horse business, my attention was drawn to what was going on with the breed in Europe and the Middle East. I was fascinated by it all, quite frankly. I was working in a designbased industry, stretched between New York City and Los Angeles, but voraciously devouring all the information I could around the goings-on in the Arabian world across the pond.

Like most people many years ago, I couldn't wait for the December issue of my Arabian publication to arrive, as it always had a section covering the European shows, coupled with a rich and interesting article from a brilliant writer who knew the horses that were competing, as well as the history behind them. Because I was such an avid follower of this information and these show results, I knew the European breeders and winning horses quite well. All of this knowledge gave me a foundation that helped in understanding what was then happening in Europe and the Middle East at that time. This knowledge also made my lease of the world-class mare *Zagrobla a nobrainer, as she was the toast of Europe at that time, along with the burnished chestnut *Kwestura, now owned by Ajman Stud. Breeders have always been

rock stars for me, whether canine, equine or bovine. I am fascinated by their devotion, hard work, and at times, sheer brilliance. Europe, of course, has always been chock full of great breeders and I could see that a handful in the Middle East were becoming just that, too. About two years ago, while closing down my New York City business of 22 years, I told longtime Arabian horse friend Theresa Cardamone that I would love to travel the world through the eyes of the Arabian horse. Obviously, very powerful words that framed the next phase of my life. Not long after that, I relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona, and became acquainted with Lara Ames and the staff of Arabian Horse Times, and my life has now changed forever— and in the most interesting of ways. Lara and I began speaking of continuing the development of AHT into a global magazine, one that houses between its two covers the complete diversity of our beloved breed. From that beginning, the European Summer Tour was launched. Because of Lara and her dynamic, hard-working, and dedicated staff, we are well on our way to achieving our goals. The Arabian Horse Times has provided the platform from which to fly. The dream I talked about with Theresa that day in NYC has now come true, and it is my deepest wish that it is for the betterment of our breed all around the world. The more we know about each other, the more we grow collectively. I have received countless gifts from knowing the Arabian horse, and I wish the same for you. We are happy you have joined the Arabian Horse Times and Jeff Wallace European Summer Tour of 2015. Enjoy the ride!

VIP ... Very Special Patrons Aja Arabians - United Kingdom

Well-established in the UK, Aja Arabians is the result of Malcolm and Jane Hickford’s carefully planned and highly successful program. Stretching back to a taproot mare by *Bask++ on Comet breeding, the Aja horses have continually emerged as beautiful and powerful representatives of the breed standard. Currently, Aja Carrera is a fine example of the Hickford’s stellar results. She was recently the Gold Champion Yearling Filly and Best in Show in Bruges, Belgium. Her Aja-born relative, Aja Angelo, was pinned Gold Champion Stallion at the recent Elran Cup Show for new owner Al Baydaa Stud, presented by Raphael Curti of Privilege.

Ajman Stud - UAE

Representing the epitome of Arabian bloodlines, whether bred at home or selected from other programs, the Ajman collection is second to none. With incredible care placed in mating selections, the breeding program has achieved a growing list of outstanding champions bred at home. Setting show rings on fire is AJ Azzam, the perfect example of crossing homebred stallion AJ Mardan on the Marwan Al Shaqab mare Ysadora. Shown by Frank Spönle, AJ Azzam has been Gold Champion several times this year, including Wels and Elran for owner Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, the Crown Prince of Ajman.

Al Baydaa Stud - Egypt

In the desert outside of Cairo, passionate breeder of straight Egyptians, Mr. Ahmed El Talawy, keeps his program alive with intermittent additions of great new horses. Last year, his jet-black filly Zennyatta waltzed away with the Scottsdale Grand Champion Junior Filly and Champion Yearling titles before journeying to Europe. There, Zennyatta was Elran Cup Gold Champion with Raphael Curti, who is a strong partner with Mr. Talawy. This year, they teamed with Aja Angelo for the Gold Championship at the Elran Arabian Cup. Also of note, the sale of Kenz Al Baydaa to Hanaya Stud in Switzerland was a big boost for the European straight Egyptian breeders of Al Baydaa Stud.

Al Nasser Stud - Qatar

H.H. Sheikh Nawaf Bin Nasser Al Thani established the Al Nasser Stud in Qatar in 1991. With excellent manager Hendrik Mens to assist, Al Nasser Stud is producing outstanding non-straight and straight Egyptian Arabians. In each case, superior dam lines and great foundation mares are the backbone to their smart breeding choices. A class act all around and well-liked by everyone, the Al Nasser team includes the talents of Glenn and Tom Schoukens in the show ring.

Al Rayyan Farm - Qatar

There is a new breeze blowing at the Al Rayyan Farm. It comes with a very rich past, but also an amazing present and a very bright future, due to the newly established team of Sheik Hamad Ali Al Thani and manager Santi Fornieles. Team Al Rayyan made a profound impact at this year’s Egyptian Event in America, winning Jr. and Sr. Mare championships with Nawaal Al Rayyan and Rayyana Al Aliya respectively, presented by Michael Byatt. With many beautifully planned breedings in the works, expectations are high and the future looks ever so bright.

Al Thumama Stud - Qatar

Layering itself with beautiful horses from several different strains, the relatively young breeding program at Al Thumama Stud in Qatar has a collection of exquisite mares to provide their foundation. Whether daughters of Botswana, Shanghai EA, or other illustrious bloodlines, the Al-Meslemani family, farm manager Hilke De Bruycker, and European trainer Tom Oben have done a wonderful job in establishing this program for the future.

Albidayer Stud - UAE

Sheik Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi established Albidayer Stud in Sharjah, where he has been breeding fantastic contemporary Arabian horses. Ably assisted by Dawn Martin and trainer Barry Shepherd as part of a well-oiled team, they own the super sire stallion Marajj. Their brilliant yearling filly Mozn Albidayer, a daughter of Albidayer foundation mare Mattaharii, made a spectacular showing at Menton and Dubai, winning the crowd over just as she has established fans throughout the world-and rightfully so. Mozn is one gorgeous grey filly. 80 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Most importantly, they constantly give back to all facets of the equine world through many generous sponsorships at equine events around the globe.

Fazenda Floresta - Brazil

Luciana Fasano is a woman of superb taste in everything she does in life, from her delectable chocolates to her Arabian horses. On her historic property in Brazil, she has built a state-of-the-art equine facility. Among her exceptional group of stallions, Al Hadiyah AA is a standout son of Laheeb out of the fabled mare The Vision HG, by Thee Desperado who many consider to be his sire’s finest. AAS-Elishahh is another example of the Fazenda Floresta stallion power, holding several United States National titles, and rumor has it, heading to Europe!

Hanaya Arabian Stud - Switzerland

Home to one of the most impressive and dynamic straight Egyptian breeding programs on the planet today, Hanaya’s success in the show ring spotlights the great collaboration between owner Nayla Hayek, and trainer Frank Spönle with Elisa Grassi. Recent addition Wadad Zamani has earned Gold Championships in very impressive style at multiple venues, gaining a slew of fans along the way. The young homebred stock have been claiming Gold Championships, one after the other, throughout the European show season as well.

Oak Ridge Arabians - Illinois

Aside from being a multi-National Champion for Oak Ridge Arabians, Vitorio TO is establishing himself as a dominant sire, both in the United States and now, abroad. This year, Vitorio is standing his second season inside Michalów State Stud in Poland, his first Polish foal crop exceeding every expectation. Vitorio introduces the rare *Mirage sire line to the Polish program. In return, and through the assistance of advisor David Boggs, owner Janey Morse has leased the brilliant *Wieza Mocy, who has earned several very important Gold Championships with Boggs on the lead.

Stella Bella Arabians - Texas

Ben and Michelle Bassichis and their family, with the help of several excellent consultants, have developed a strong presence in a short span of time. Their stunning black colt Artemas GA ( JJ Bellagio x Duchess of Marwan) wowed the crowd as the 2015 Scottsdale Champion and the Arabian Breeders World Cup Silver Supreme Champion Yearling Colt, shown by Rodolfo Guzzo. Building on the success of Goddess of Da Vinci, the Bassichis’ show and breeding foundation mare, Artemas GA is continuing to direct the European spotlight to Stella Bella Arabians with Frank Spönle on the lead.

Swatam Arabians - Belgium

James and Christel Swaenepoel have spent over 20 years establishing Swatam Arabians in Belgium. They have simply been master breeders of Arabian horses for a long time. Swatam stands a number of influential stallions, including American born and bred bay super sire Psytadel (Padrons Psyche x Bint Bey Shah). Psytadel has had nothing less than a profound influence on the Arabian breed throughout Europe, just as the Swaenepoel family continues to have.

Luciana Fasano and AAS-Elishahh.

W

hen and where was the first time you saw an Arabian horse? It was at my cousin’s farm where I grew up. His name was El Bay, a beautiful bay stallion. I fell in love! For me, after this, there was nothing else. Who is most instrumental in the success you have had with the Arabian horse? I believe my success had something to do with my having a clear goal of what I wanted. That helped me to know the type of horse 90 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

I wanted, and it helped Rodolfo Guzzo; the person I give credit to as well. I also had a lot of intuition in choosing my horses; I had to look at them and feel it was right. Elishahh is very important to you. Can you share what it is like to have him home with you in Brazil? Elishahh is love at first sight! That is what I felt when I saw his video the first time—I got goosebumps! It’s magic to have him.

WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD

I originally had him come to Brazil to be near me, but most of all, because my late father was dying and his dream was to meet Elishahh. We had little time left for them to meet; it was at the point where I needed to send him on a truck to São Paulo in front of the hospital so he could just see him, but there was no time. So his company brings me a lot of joy. He knows my voice and he waits for his carrots all the time. He is a very special horse and I love his character. He is a gentle stallion, which to me, means a lot! What has been your most rewarding moment in the Arabian horse industry? When Elishahh was Supreme National Champion five days after I bought him. Who in your eyes is the perfect Arabian horse and why? A difficult question! All of them have something special, but I would have to say Elishahh is my type of horse. For me, proportion is the name of the game, with a good head and body, and tall.

LUCIANA What is your favorite Arabian horse event to attend and why? In the U.S., it is the Breeders World Cup in Vegas, and in Europe, the World Championships in Paris. Can you tell us what Fazenda Floresta means to you? Fazenda Floresta is the full expression of what I like and who I am. It brings me back to my childhood, but with my taste. The fazenda for me is my home; no matter where I live! Every inch of this farm that I see, I learned at a young age to value, as I grew up on one that my grandparents loved; my parents, and my entire family. So it is something I must have inherited from them! What is your favorite color? I like many colors, because for me, I have moments where they mean different things; but my favorite must be blue. You are known for your hospitality when one visits Fazenda Floresta. What is your favorite dish to share with guests? By far, it is the famous “Mac

Luciana Fasano and Magnum Psyche.

FASANO Elishahh.” It is a recipe that has gotten better over the years. It is made with special X Burguer called Picanha (prime Brazilian beef ), grilled onions, cheddar cheese and placed on pizza bread, then baked inside of a pizza oven. But I also like Ravioli with Brie and pear, with a sweet curry and passion fruit sauce. Who do you most admire in life and why? My father. I admire him so much because he is a combination of someone who is practical, extremely disciplined and balanced, while also having a tremendous good heart and generosity. From his strong personality, character and huge heart for people, I learned from him unconditional love without fear! I also learned to be my best in things I make; be a leader! He had a lot of taste and style and was able to be at the most glorious party while at the same time, be simple at the farm with the employees. He was a gentlemen, and I love this on a man (the old fashioned way).

WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD

You pay strong attention to detail. Can you share why this is so important to you? The difference between good and excellent is in the details! I am a perfectionist, so details are something that comes easy for me; I really don’t have to make an extra effort. I take a lot of pleasure in doing things that are well done, and I also take pleasure in looking at people’s eyes and seeing the pleasure they have, either from something they are eating, or looking at something in my house. I grew up learning to appreciate the best. What is your favorite flower? Roses, in all colors, but always combined with other flowers; not alone, like Hydrangeas. How did you get involved in the chocolate business? The chocolates are something special, like the Arabian horse. When Elishahh became national champion for the first time, I was so happy that I created a logo

and started to order chocolates from a homemade Chocolatier in São Paulo who had the quality I was looking for to share with friends at shows in the Arabian horse community.

Volume 46, No. 2 | 95


How would you describe your fashion style? I think I have conservative roots … simple and elegant. What are you most proud of in life? My son Felipe. I think he has a special personality and has many qualities I would like to have. What is the perfect day for you? When I make a priority to take care of myself, which is something that took a very long time to learn. I produce better that way; I am a better person. I like routine, discipline, and at the end of the day, seeing how many things I have done and crossed off my list. I also love seeing that I helped or made a difference in someone’s life (it can be a small thing … even just a word). So, waking up and having breakfast with Felipe, going to work out, returning all of my emails on time, getting acupuncture … overall I love having goals, seeing things ready and achieving them.

Luciana Fasano and Al Hadiyah AA.

Being a perfectionist and liking a challenge, I wanted a chocolate that could be appreciated all over the world, with different cultures and palates, while taking advantage of the many exotic ingredients we have in Brazil and even on the farm with different fruits and coffee, so I decided to do my own chocolates. With time, I created different flavors, and encouraged our chef to take a chocolate course in New York. He is very talented and was soon able to create to the standards I wanted. After 3 years of giving chocolates away and testing them by taking them to shows and events, it was time to start my business that would become well known all over the world. For me, this has special meaning since this logo was created with the gratitude I have for a very special Arabian horse. It will be such a pleasure to see in many countries, my chocolates and our Arabian horse. Are you a white, dark, or milk chocolate lover? My favorite chocolate is Hazelnut (giunduia).

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

You have had some amazing front covers on the Arabian Horse Times. What is your favorite cover photo and why? My favorite front cover is the one with Al Hadiyah AA in the desert. I love that cover … love the picture. What would be one thing our readers would be surprised to know about you? Behind the very competitive and perfectionist person, I am very sensitive, loving and tender. I like to give attention, love and happiness in return—I could go across the ocean to make someone happy. What is one place that you have never visited that you would like to and why? Egypt, to see the roots of the Egyptian horses. How would you describe yourself? I have a sense of humor, am demanding but fair; loving and tender, creative, playful and fun. When one visits Fazenda Floresta, how would you hope they would describe their visit? I hope that they can see Brazil’s history with a touch of sophistication, and feel welcome and at home. I want them to leave


WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD

with the best impression they can have about Brazil after travelling so far to see something special. What one horse would you like to own that you have never owned and why? Padron. Again, it is really about what I felt when I looked at him. Do you feel that a great sense of style and inherent good taste are something you are born with, or are evolved and developed traits? I feel that yes, you learn some from your family, and I think I learned the base from my grandmother and both my mom and dad. I absorbed the best and created my own, which developed from working with fashion and traveling. But still, you need to be open to learn, to see different things; look at books and, of course, you need to pay attention to detail. You have been incredibly supportive of the AHT magazine over several years. Simply, why AHT? I love the team! Everyone is supportive, and it’s a well-run, organized and very exclusive magazine! ■

Things You Don’t Know About Me … Joshua Biron

1. The f irst horse I ever rode or handled was … my mom’s American Quarter Horse gelding, Poco San Pedro. 2. My happiest moment with a horse was … after years of foaling out mares for various farms, this year I was able to watch my

own mare JBB Maijah (Om El Shahmaan x BST Majenta) deliver a beautiful bay colt by multiple National Western Pleasure Champion and Unanimous Scottsdale Open Western Pleasure Champion Monticello V ( Jullyen El Jamaal x Mosquerade V).  

3. The f irst ribbon I ever won was … when I got my start showing in 4-H with Poco San Pedro; I showed him to a first place in showmanship.

4. My f irst influence in the horse industry was … my mother and grandmother.  My mother had me on horses way before I could even walk, and she instilled in me the love and passion I have for the horses today. 

5. The f irst breed of horse involved with was … Arabians, American Quarter Horses, and Morgans.  6. The age I got involved with horses was … very young, riding with my mother at the age of six months around the farm.      7. The f irst thing I do when I get to the barn is … I greet my stallions. I am fortunate to manage some of the top performance

stallions in our industry, both here at Setting Sun Stables, LLC in Wakarusa, Ind., and at Laurie Martin Show Horses, LLC in Scottsdale, Ariz.  

8. The last thing I do when I leave the barn is … I visit my mares and foals in our nursery barn. To me, it is always a great way to end a day, looking at the future of our farm and our impact on the industry. 

9. The greatest horse I’ve ever ridden was … a Polish gelding named Cavalier. He was one of our horsemanship horses at Michigan State University. He was an amazing horse who was a very talented and willing mount.  

10. The most gratifying part of my job is … bringing each new generation of foals into the world, and then watching them grow into amazing show and breeding horses.  

11. My favorite restaurant is … Flatbread, in Los Alamos, Calif. While working at Om El Arabians International, we would often dine here with clients. The food was local, organic, and amazing.

12. My favorite non-horse hobby is … music. While I do not play any instruments now, I loved playing the guitar and piano growing up.

13. My favorite genre of movie is … Action, but a good documentary is great as well. 14. When someone asks me, why Arabians, I say … their intelligence, beauty and loyalty.  15. My favorite division to show in is … I love to watch the halter classes, and now being in a performance barn, the Arabian and Half-Arabian western pleasure classes are a thrill to watch as well.

22. My childhood dream job was … I am fortunate to be working in my dream job, managing the breeding program and marketing for Setting Sun Stables, LLC.

23. My favorite breeding bloodline is … I am partial to horses that have Estopa and Jullyen El Jamaal in their pedigree.  24. My biggest pet peeve is … I am pretty easy going, but one thing that can be annoying for me is complacency.  25. The most influential person in my life is … my mother; I am the horseman that you see today because of her. From an early age,

she taught me to be a hard worker who is honest and compassionate. I credit her for giving me the passion for these animals. Volume 46, No. 2 | 111

A TOUCH OF ST YLE Brandy Phillips How would you describe your “style” of living? In two words … adventurous and fast paced. I always feel like I’m doing something, and if I’m not, I’m looking for the next thing to do or place to go. Living in Florida, we really do have year-round capability for doing so many things, and I’m always looking for the next vacation destination! How about your “style” of marketing, photographing and designing? There are three responses to a design or photograph: yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one I try to aim for. Milton Glaser had a quote similar to that and it spoke to me. My “style” I don’t think is something that can be explained; it’s just me. I think we’re all inspired by other photographers or designers at some point and time, and find ways to create what our mind sees. Who has had the biggest influence in your involvement with Arabians? My first Arabian was at the age of 12 and my mother got him for me, so I think the love affair started because of her. The two people that have had the greatest influence on my career are Duke Mendel and Joe Alberti. Photographers always remember that one person/farm that gave them a chance; I was lucky enough to have two great people.

Describe yourself in three words. Aggressive (in a good way), creative and adventurous. What do you consider your greatest achievement? I have two beautiful girls that light my world. They are smart, charismatic and everything in between. Professionally, winning the AHT Readers’ Choice Award for Favorite Advertisement designed by me, for past two years in a row. Do you thumb through non-horse magazines for ideas? Not really, but I do go into stock photo sites such as Shutterstock to try and find ideas for designs. Where does your inspiration come from? It comes from the passion I have for horses. As a creative, how do you see the world? As a creative spirit I see a world that has so much beauty, but has a luster that most can’t see. I feel that it’s my calling to bring that beauty to the eyes of everyone who lack that perception.

What have you given the Arabian horse industry? Well, hopefully, beautiful photos and designs! What has the industry given you? Friendships for sure. I feel like at the age of 32, I’ve grown up at horse shows and barns. I’ve taken a break from showing the last few years, but I’m excited to say I’m coming back this year. How do you relax? I live in Florida, how else do Floridians relax … we go to the beach, sit in the sun and watch the waves.

How do you overcome designers-block? Take a break, look up from the computer and see what’s around me. I get out of the house and breathe some fresh air. What is your favorite part of what you do? Making people happy! What made you choose design and photography? I started learning how to do graphic design at the age of 17. I’m 100% self-taught. My father’s marketing company gave me the chance to learn and grow. I’ve always loved National Geographic®, and the cinema and photography captured me at a young age. I was lucky enough to have a family that supported me at a young age and helped me gather the tools I needed to

Where We’ve Been And Where We’re heAded In SIx QueStIonS by BROOK MATTHIESEN

W

hile the popularity for Arabian working western classes has ebbed and flowed over the last 30-plus years, the passion of those who breed, show and train these horses, has not. The precision and timing necessary for each maneuver and the partnership created between horse and rider is what keeps many coming back for more. And yet, it’s the traditional “on the range” nature of the work that allows many to enjoy these accomplished horses outside the show ring as well. There’s a juxtaposition within this industry that other Arabian horse disciplines may not encounter: Highly trained and precise show horses in a more relaxed show environment. You don’t see much “bling” on the rider in these classes. Instead, the experience is all about the partnership between horse and rider as they quickly read the situation and guide themselves with finesse. Arabian Horse Times has asked the opinions of many who breed, train, own and show these horses to find out where the working western division is heading in the years to come, including continued cross over with Arabians in other breeds and working western events.

Volume 46, No. 2 | 131


CEDAR RIDGE ARABIANS JORDAN, MINN. Dick Ames, a versatile rider, handler and driver, and accomplished breeder, has been a driving force in the Arabian horse community for more than 40 years and a substantial supporter of Arabian and Half-Arabian reining futurities over the last two decades. He recently received the 2015 Minnesota Horseperson of the Year award from the Minnesota Horse Council.

With an aging population of working western riders, how does the industry keep riders of all ages competitively showing? Age levels and ability level categories like NRHA has helped. In what areas do you think the Arabian and HalfArabian working western division could capitalize on the changing industry, demographics and overall environment to better the breed and the sport? We need more breeders breeding working western horses so the quality continually gets better and better. With the downturn in the economy and a number of the larger breeders getting older, we need to entice more up-andcoming breeders to continue the great things we’ve accomplished in the Arabian and Half-Arabian reining industry. That includes offering a market for these horses and offering shows and classes with financial incentives like paybacks and youth scholarships which help draw others into the sport.

RANCHO DEL CHARRO NIPOMO, CALIF.

What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? Getting more people involved. Reining is the most exciting class there is and it’s the least political and least subjective. Everyone walks in with the same score, and even a novice can tell if a horse over or under spun. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? I look for an athletic horse with a quiet disposition. What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? Crystal McNutt and Brian Welman have had some great rides at Scottsdale over the years, and many others as well. How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? Do different things with them—it’s good for the horse and rider. It’s good to spend time on a horse and just have fun with them and not doing all the reining maneuvers. Just get out there and have fun. 132 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

As trainer and manager, Andy and his family have raised and trained Arabians and Half-Arabians since the 1960s. Andy shows working and reined cow horses and has won multiple national and regional titles. He trains his horses using the traditional old californio methods of hackamore and silver bits, and takes pride that all his show horses also do ranch work. When Andy is not training or teaching amateur riders to show cow horses, he can be found in his leather shop building custom chaps and saddles


What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? The availability of cow classes to be held in conjunction with more Class A shows. The cutting and working cow horse, because of the necessity for cattle, are difficult but not impossible for shows to offer. I would like to see our working western associations help show management with the procurement and set up of cattle classes by being a resource that show staff could use to answer any questions that might come up, in relation to how to run these cow classes.

on the changing industry, demographics and overall environment to better the breed and the sport? The above are classes that can bring in new riders or pull existing riders from other disciplines because they are designed not to intimidate, and encourage riders to try them out.

What traits do you look for in working western prospects? Trainability and athletic ability, and a solid physical build. A cow horse must have a smart enough mind to work a cow on its own and at the same time take a helping rein from its rider. Being built physically strong enough to run fast, stop hard and turn quick is simply a must.

Gary has owned and operated his own horse training operation for 35 years. He has won multiple world and national titles in both the reining and western pleasure disciplines. He is 3-time winner of the Professional Working Western Trainer award and 2-time winner of the IAHA Futurity/Maturity All Around Trainer. Gary prides himself mostly on the success and accomplishments of his amateurs and youth riders. He enjoys giving clinics to broaden the awareness of the reining discipline and to show all level of riders that they have the ability to compete and succeed.

What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? 2013 U.S. Nationals on Sin Derella WP. She is my favorite show horse so far, that I’ve trained from the ground up and we won both the futurity and the junior horse that year. Sin Derella had great fence turns and circled so tight to the cow, that my legs were bruised on both sides from the cow’s ribs.

GARY FERGUSON PERFORMANCE HORSES SULPHUR SPRINGS, TEX.

How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? By using them to do actual ranch work outside of the arena. Working cattle in the open over natural terrain keeps their mind fresh because the environment is always changing and there is an actual job to be done that the horse can relate to. Crossing creeks and jumping logs or sliding down a steep mountainside gives a horse a complete body workout. Gathering, roping, branding, and sorting cows and calves on a ranch will teach a horse how to read a cow better the a 45 minute session in an arena. With an aging population of working western riders, how does the industry keep riders of all ages competitively showing? The best way to keep them showing will be the Limited Reined Cow Horse class and Herd Work (two-handed cutting) class. The limited class allows a rider all the excitement of a reining class and a working cow class without having to go down the fence and circle up—the fastest and most difficult parts— the rider just has to “box” a cow. The herd work class is more user friendly because it allows a competitor to use whatever horse they have because they can rein or steer their horse once they’ve cut their cow from the herd. In what areas do you think the Arabian and HalfArabian working western division could capitalize

What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? My greatest concern is that we do not do enough to bring new people into Arabian reining. We need to include other youth and ATR riders within our own breed to experience what it feels like to ride a reiner and what we as a discipline have to offer. We should not have ever excluded ourselves from the main arena where “potential enthusiast” and exposure was lost. We can overcome this by inviting riders from other disciplines at large horse shows to “share a ride.” We also

Volume 46, No. 2 | 133


shouldn’t isolate ourselves from the rest of the horse show. Getting back into the main arena would be a start for exposing others to the excitement of reining. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? Trainability, temperament, body structure, solid bone and low headed. These are difficult to find all in one horse. What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? My best ride is the next one. I work every day and all day for the next great ride. How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? Everyday consistently training, feeding and caring. I consider it layers of training. Nothing happens overnight. Consistency and layering is key. My personal preparation comes from knowing that every day I am able to get up and do something that I love and have a passion for. It drives me to want to be better today than yesterday. In what areas do you think the Arabian and HalfArabian working western division could capitalize on the changing industry, demographics and overall environment to better the breed and the sport? It all goes back to promoting from within. We need more organizations and people getting involved across the country to expose our breed to new equine lovers and enthusiasts.

ELEANOR’S ARABIANS ROGERS, MINN. One of the most recognized names in working western Arabians, Eleanor Hamilton has bred and raised Arabian and Half-Arabian reiners since the mid-1980s. An accomplished amateur rider and breeder, she is not afraid to try the unknown in her breeding program and stands both Arabian and Quarter Horse stallions, including the late Hesa Zee. She maintains an active training stable under the direction of Rod Matthiesen, and also uses outside trainers from various areas of the country to showcase the success of her program and make others aware of the type of working western horses being bred. What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? Horses being shown that obviously do not have the conformation for that particular class.

FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. Gary and Nancy Howard own the multi-U.S. and Youth National Champion Amerikan Eagle, who specializes in reined cow and working cow horse competition. Amerikan Eagle is trained by Eddie Ralston.


What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? Show managers not being able to locate good cows for our horses to work in the cow classes. This continues to be a problem at some of the major shows. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? Horses that make the best working western horses have low hocks, short backs, strong hindquarters and good shoulders. This conformation makes it possible for them to make the quick turns, stops and spins required to compete in working western classes. Horses must also have “cow sense.”

ELEANOR’S ARABIAN FARM ROGERS, MINN. Rod has trained reining and western pleasure horses for over 40 years and has worked at Eleanor’s Arabian Farm since 1988. He earned a Canadian Reserve National Championship in Arabian Reining, numerous top tens and has been nominated for the Arabian Professional & Amateur Horseman’s Association’s Professional Working Western Award.

What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? The most memorable class was in 2007, Albuquerque, N.M. at U.S. Nationals. Eagle won his first national championship as a 6-year-old against 27 entries. He was the last run, the day had been long and it was about to get dark, and he went into the arena, got a good cow to work and he put on a show. I remember hearing one of the judges say after the scores had been turned in, “That cow is saying, ‘Get me out of here!’” It was a picture perfect run. Still, every U.S. National title is just as much fun, and he actually has had better scores through the years, but that first win is most memorable. How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? Patience and training—lots of training. With an aging population of working western riders, how does the industry keep riders of all ages competitively showing? Offering new classes for both adult and youth that do not require some of the dangerous elements in the ride. The Limited Reining Cow Horse and Limited Cow Horse classes for Arabians and Half-Arabians do not require the running and turning down the rail. Ranch Horse Pleasure and Herd Work are also new classes that have been approved by AHA. In what areas do you think the Arabian and Half-Arabian working western division could capitalize on the changing industry, demographics and overall environment to better the breed and the sport? Offering more one-day working western shows for the working western horses since so many of the traditional shows are not offering the cow classes due to the availability and expense of the cows. Green Country Arabian Horse Association has a one-day show scheduled for Aug. 8—we’re hoping to give more members the opportunity to get qualified for nationals.

What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? In reining over the last few years, I think we have become too focused on how the Arabian and HalfArabians fit into the NRHA. This focus has opened some doors for us within the NRHA, but I believe we should promote our discipline more within the breed and on the regional level across the United States. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? While there are physical characteristics I look for, the mental and emotional characteristics are the most important. I like a quiet, low flight response horse. They are easier to teach and don’t tend to overreact to training and new environments like a horse show. What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? I don’t remember what year it was or the horse’s name, but Don Ulmer

Volume 46, No. 2 | 135


showed a Muscat son at the stand-alone working western Futurities in Oklahoma City, I believe. Don turned the cow and the horse was nearly laying on its side from my vantage point. Don hit the cow in its eyeball, he was that close to him. It was the wildest thing I’ve ever seen. How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? I work with a lot of amateurs so it’s about problem solving and management of horse and rider combinations. Long term, it’s work in progress. I make sure to bring them up and let them down and I always go back to the basics in that process. With an aging population of working western riders, how does the industry keep riders of all ages competitively showing? I would like to see a senior reining 65 & Older with modified patterns.

RALSTON TRAINING CENTER DEPEW, OKLA. Eddie has trained working western horses for more than 30 years and has numerous national championships in working cow horse, cutting, reining, trail and western pleasure. Eddie also shows working cow horses in other breeds and open competition where he has been an ambassador for the Arabian breed.

What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? I was just at the Pinto World show and there were kids everywhere there. We should take a closer look at what other successful working western breeds are doing to get ideas to draw people into our sport and keep them there. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? I look for a horse that gives to pressure easily, moves quick off his feet, and likes to lope. What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? I was working for Chuck Kibler 32 years ago, and at U.S. Nationals I was leading a horse by the Rodeo Arena and I just happened to see Don Ulmer in a working cow class. It was probably the best run I’ve ever seen and it got me hooked from then on. How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? We have a lot of land here—almost 500 acres—so I get out of the arena and use the land and trees to help teach the horse and keep their mind busy learning new things. I walk, trot, and lope horses in 900 foot circles and go around trees. In what areas do you think the Arabian and HalfArabian working western division could capitalize on the changing industry, demographics and overall environment to better the breed and the sport? Our numbers have gotten smaller and smaller over the last 10 years, yet our shows have grown in the number of classes they offer, which spread the show over three days. Times have changed and many people just cannot afford to stay at a show for three days with hotel, food, and transportation costs for themselves. In the Oklahoma area, we’re seeing a lot more one-day working western shows. It’s easier and more economical for families, especially for those who want to show their horse and do something else with their family over the weekend. We’ll continue to see more of these one-day shows around this area for sure.

partnership; to perform at its best, the horse has to trust you and vice versa. That is the joy of it. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? They have to have the right conformation, although some outperform their conformation. They have to have the heart and try as well. What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? I loved watching the mare Seranada with Kathy Bast in Trail. I also loved watching our mare SC Chipawa Chinks, by Desperado V, with Crystal McNutt and our daughter, Deb Walden Ralls. Chinks is so brave and so honest. One day, Deb neglected to tighten her cinch on a hot day in Albuquerque. She finished her boxing and was on the cow like a cat on a mouse. I saw the entire saddle shift sideways and Deb lose a stirrup, which she never does. Chinks felt the saddle slip and slid gently to a stop. Deb was able to dismount safely, the saddle slipped under her belly, and Chinks never took a false step, much less a buck. I believe that results from the nature of our breed, the years of Varian breeding, and kind treatment from us.

What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? Sound and successful working western horses have to be properly conditioned both physically and mentally, and they have to have the right conformation to do the job—good straight legs and feet, a laid back shoulder, and shorter coupled than English disciplines. I see too often, owners wanting to put a square peg in a round hole, and I see too often, trainers pushing horses beyond what they are conformed to do. The trainers have to tell the owners what the horse can and cannot do, and they should not resort to gimmicks to try to get there. If a trainer pushes a horse too far too soon, it will break down young.

How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? We turn out our horses in big pastures 6-7 days a week. We trail ride out all of our horses. We start our young ones leading over trail obstacles. It makes them confident and careful with their feet. We expose all our horses to cows for the same reason. With an aging population of working western riders, how does the industry keep riders of all ages competitively showing? There are a good number of trainers and riders under 50 riding in working western; there are also some over that mark. I think the problem of aging riders in the AHA is universal. The owners who can afford Arabians and to show, are often 40, 50 or 60. We have to focus on their kids and grandkids, and reaching the larger population of horse riders of other breeds who have the misconception that Arabians are crazy. Also, we should do more one-day inexpensive shows.

Also, a good cow horse, trail horse, cutting or reining horse, cannot live in a box stall all the time, then go out in the big “wild” world and perform well. These horses have to be turned out, exposed to cattle and trail conditions and the real world. Then they will not spook at a park bench on the trail course, or flowers, noises and birds in the arena.

We also have to do less shows, with two regional judges, and also one-day shows on weekends. It is getting too expensive to show at these long Arabian shows. We should bring back the Bonanza or Versatility Competition where horses compete in 3 divisions or more. We need to reach out to 4-H and Land Grant Colleges with horse programs and apprenticeships.

Owners have to put in the time in working western disciplines. A trainer can’t make a push button horse, especially in working western. The owner cannot just hop on the day of the show and push auto pilot. It is a

a great story to tell. The Lexington Horse Park Pavilion begins it. But we have to do more outreach in urban and rural areas. Many of the materials AHA produces are excellent, but just sit too often on shelves. We need to show kids The Coppola version of “The Black Stallion”, and the “Man from Snowy River.” We need to get more folks on our boards that show Arabians and Half-Arabians. They compete at the highest levels, and could help us.

BRIAN WELMAN TRAINING CENTER HASTINGS, MINN. Brian Welman is a judge, clinician and National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) board member with more than 30 years’ experience training reining horses. Brian completed the equine program at the University of Wisconsin and then went to work for NRHA $3 million dollar rider Tim McQuay. Brian himself, has won nearly $600,000 in NRHA earnings, and has won the Arabian and Half-Arabian Scottsdale Reining Futurity twice each, including winning both futurity classes in the same year.

horses shown on the NRHA circuit have more places to showcase their talents, including futurity events. From a supply and demand standpoint, the shows are what keep demand going for trained reining horses and they help to continue increasing the quality of horses through specialized and continued focus. The shows should be evenly geographically spread and they should offer decent prize money, which attracts more people and better competition. It benefits everyone when our shows are booming and it offers a market for our horses. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? I first look at how they’re bred, which I think is especially important with the purebreds because the Arabian working western horse is so new in comparison to other breeds. Secondly, I want a stout young horse that is strong over the back and hind end so it can perform sliding stops with ease. Lastly, I look for a willing attitude to do its job. My approach with Arabians is different than with Quarter Horses in part because of their more high strung temperament. What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? I showed a gelding for Dick [Ames] at U.S. Nationals several years back and I knew when I went in I couldn’t win the class, but thought I could maybe take reserve. I knew what others wanted me to do to show the horse but I also knew the horse and his tricky spots. It was a matter of showing the horse to the best of its ability to get the job done—and it paid off—we were reserve champion. There was also the Minding Ps and Qs mare (Hesa Zee x Sarabask) that Dick showed to a Canadian National Championship in Arabian Reining AOTR 40 & Over in 2007. She is a good ‘ol mare who has now gone on to produce Scottsdale futurity reining champions. How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? For me, it has been part of my life for 30 years now, so it’s just a normal part of my life. I try to expose my horses to a lot of the show environment so they’re not afraid of things. Beyond that, I show what I’ve got. I don’t focus on what everyone else has and I try to make a horse the best it can be and show a horse to the best of its ability.

What is your No. 1 concern for the working western division and how should the industry work to overcome it? Working together to ensure we have places to show these horses so they continue to increase in value. Reining

With an aging population of working western riders, how does the industry keep riders of all ages competitively showing? Having classes specifically for riders of a certain age like Prime Time and levels or categories based on rider accomplishments—either AHA points or NRHA money earned—give these


riders the most opportunities. No one is going to keep playing if they get beat all the time. To grow the sport, we need to ensure there’s a level for every competitor. For the open division, it’s a matter of ensuring our older trainers can drop back a category once they’ve reached a point that they aren’t winning as much as they used to. It doesn’t make sense to mandate that a 55-yearold trainer competes in the same category as younger riders, just as it doesn’t make sense for a rider who won a national championship 15 years ago to compete in the same category as those who are currently national champions. It’s important to allow riders to move up and down the scale as determined by a more current ability level, as well as age. In what areas do you think the Arabian and HalfArabian working western division could capitalize on the changing industry, demographics and overall environment to better the breed and the sport? We need to entice younger people to want to become horse trainers and make it a career. Unfortunately, it’s not what kids out of college want to do these days. People just don’t want to do physical labor jobs anymore. So, we need to find ways to bring in the younger trainers, give them a place to be competitive, and horses that will remain in training so they will want to make the horse business their career.

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. Susan owns multi-National Champion Baske Thyme SA (Pryme Thyme x Kailabasa). He stands at stud at Golden Ridge Farms in Scottsdale, Ariz. What traits do you look for in working western prospects? I look for a horse that is pretty, athletic, and is nicely put together. It should have a nice neck and look good under saddle and in the bridle. The Bask and Khemosabi bloodlines are pretty and athletic. They also must have a good attitude and be personable. What was the best working western class or go you have ever seen? What made it memorable? The best go was our first U.S. National Reserve Championship in Half-Arabian working cow horse in 2008. It was exciting to be part of something at that level of competition. How do you keep yourself and your horse(s) mentally agile and conditioned to handle the physical demands of working western competitions? Diversifying what the horses do. Our horses go in working cow, trail,

herding and sorting. That way, they don’t get stale or stuck in their training. Arabians are smart and like to learn, so it’s important to keep them thinking. With an aging population of working western riders, how does the industry keep riders of all ages competitively showing? The demographic coming into the breed is the 40- to 50-year-old woman. I doubt someone learning how to ride would go directly toward working cow horse because it’s really fast paced. I think we should promote the slower-paced cow classes and events to attract the new person into the sport. Classes like limited cow horse, herding and sorting are great classes for those new and learning to ride. And with the aging population of riders and horses, it’s great to pair the older horses that still need to keep active with these new riders. In what areas do you think the Arabian and Half-Arabian working western division could capitalize on the changing industry, demographics and overall environment to better the breed and the sport? Our working western horses are versatile and they have a lot to offer people, even those who are weekend warrior types who want to show their horse and then go have fun with the family. Our horses can work cows on a Saturday and be on a trail ride with the family on Sunday. n Volume 46, No. 2 | 139

early 20 Arabian and Half-Arabian reining horses competed for $10,000 in added money for four Arabian and Half-Arabian classes at the first-ever Minnesota Pink Slid’in show, a category AA National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) show held June 4-7, in St. Paul, Minn. Eleanor Hamilton, former long-time Arabian Reining Horse Association president and owner of Eleanor’s Arabian Farm in Rogers, Minn., added the additional $10,000 purse to help entice those from the Arabian reining community to show their Arabians and Half-Arabians at this top ten ranked NRHA show. “Exhibitors on any Arabian or Half-Arabian horse—whether bred by me or not, whether a descendant of my Hesa Zee breeding program or not—were eligible to win the added money,” Hamilton said.

hen and how did you come to know the Arabian horse? I was introduced to the Arabian horse in the early 70s. My late husband, Ed, and I met an elderly gentleman who insisted we come and look at his Arabian horse—I had never seen one. This magnificent grey stallion was the Straight Egyptian Kabar, who took my breath away. We were hooked! As the breeder of the world famous Vitorio TO, tell me a bit about your pride in this young great stallion. It is difficult to find the words to express what I feel every time I see a foal sired by Vitorio TO. Ed and I took the job of breeding very seriously, and we spent a great deal of time going to Kentucky to walk through the barns of Paramont ( Jim Brown) and Lasma. We viewed the foals sired by many imported stallions including *Aladdinn, Promotion and Cognac. Each stallion had approximately 50 foals to consider. We also explored the horses at Dr. Kales’ barn and many others when we went to Scottsdale. We attended every prestigious sale of Arabian horses and learned much about pedigrees and the different strains within the breed. From the moment Vitorio TO was born, I knew he was special. His dam, Sol Natique, was slow with her milk production and so I had to feed this very outgoing and independent colt every three hours for the first two days. He welcomed me into the stall and drank his bottle with such gusto, and upon finishing his meal, would immediately turn his back on me and try to kick me. I know he was laughing at me. I was happy that Ed experienced the pride and feeling of accomplishment when Vitorio TO owner, Janey Morse, agreed to lease him to Michalów State Stud for two years.

The reward for us as breeders is to be recognized and accepted by those who are bringing their best mares to this very young stallion. I feel somewhat humbled by his success. Are you excited about the world-class mares foaling to him this year in Poland and do you plan to go and see them? I have been to the three major studs in Poland and enjoyed looking at approximately 750 of their best mares and stallions. I am so excited about the mares that Michalów brought to Vitorio TO last year. I definitely plan to go to Poland this summer and see another generation. I know these foals will be awesome. Vitorio TO has been given such an incredible opportunity to breed such exceptional mares. What part of breeding Arabian horses lives deep in your soul? I inseminate all my mares personally and I feel so much a part of bringing mare and stallion together to produce that special foal. I was born into a generation when women stayed home and took care of family, so I did not have a career outside the home. I have a great sense of accomplishment when I see that embryo on the ultrasound screen. I try to always be present when my mare foals. I have a very special relationship with my broodmares and feel a personal responsibility to each one, so I am always there for foaling unless the mare tricks me and goes ahead without me. What are your days like at home in Tennessee, and what are they like during your time here in Scottsdale? I am fortunate to have a wonderful young man who takes great care of the horses and facility. I go

to the barn each morning and check all the horses. We talk about what needs to be accomplished that day. If I see something that needs my hands, then I take care of it. Now that I am on my own, I have challenges that I didn’t face before i.e. my Mule just blew out the front end differential (somebody diagnosed that for me); getting hay and feed. I always do my barn check every evening. I need my eyes on my horses before I go to bed. In the summer, I enjoy just watching my horses in the pasture. When I am at home in Rio Verde just north of Scottsdale, I feel that I am on the last frontier in America. My home is located in open range and we have cows, bulls, calves, mares, foals and stallions roaming around. This is my opportunity to relax and try not to worry about my horses in Tenn. I live only two miles from my trainer Keith Krichke, so I like to spend time there looking at all the horses and visiting with everyone. I love the desert. It is populated by so many critters, and the plant life intrigues me. Beautiful, delicate blooms on hostile plants. I hear you are a great cook! What is your favorite meal to prepare and who is your favorite person to cook for? My favorite meal to prepare was always fried chicken, rice, butter beans, fresh corn, tomatoes and cucumber, and homemade biscuits covered with cane sugar. This was Ed’s favorite meal and I loved to prepare this for him.

greatest disappointments was that I never saw *Bask, but Dr. LaCroix did such a service to the Arabian horse community by importing this great stallion. The Poles didn’t realize what they had in this stallion. Even after his death in 1979, his influence is still felt today. To quote the late Harry Cooper, “The next time you’re at the Nationals, take a moment to think about *Bask … without him, or leaving out the horses related to him, the ring would be almost empty.” Eukaliptus I saw as a youngster when Lasma leased him from Poland. I saw him again as a mature stallion in Poland and I regret that we did not utilize this great horse. Of your current horses, is there one that you are very excited about? I am so very excited about my colt Soltire TO (DA Valentino x Sol Natique). He was presented at the 2014 U.S. Nationals with only one small show under his belt, where he won U.S. National Champion Futurity Colt. He is such a complete horse and he has so many of the greats in his pedigree, including *Bask. He has a kind disposition and wonderful motion. I see great potential. What characteristics do you feel are most important in a horse trainer? Honesty, integrity, good work ethic and knowledge of the horse. I think a sense of humor is very useful also.

H O R TO N

You have traveled to so many different shows at so many different destinations, which is your favorite and why? Scottsdale has always been my favorite show because the weather is usually warm. The show committee puts on a great show, and there are many attractions in Scottsdale outside the show grounds. I also can catch up with all my friends whom I only see at horse shows. I also enjoy the Aachen Show. They start the classes at 9:30 am; it is all very civilized.

What women in the breed did you or do you most admire? Sheila Varian. I have followed her activities in the breed since 1975. She has and is such a great ambassador for the Arabian horse. I admire her skill and knowledge, and for the many great horses she has bred over the years. Also, Gladys Edwards Brown. I admire her brutal honesty when she wrote her very controversial essays on the horses and exhibitors at every U.S. National show. I enjoyed her book and was fortunate to meet her when she shared some of her adventures with me.

If you could resurrect any 2 horses who would they be and why? *Bask and Eukaliptus. One of my

You have only seen the cleaned up version of me. My wardrobe at home is jeans, tennis shoes and a sweatshirt. What do you do to hang on to your girlish figure? How kind you are! I guess it is all due to hard work and eating five small meals a day. I am a passionate gardener in the Scottish tradition. As soon as Spring arrives, I am outside in my flower garden every day. I love to dig and weed my flower beds. I have also done my share of mucking out stalls over the years. I am blessed with eleven grandchildren and four great grandchildren, and I am trying to keep up with them.

You go so far back with the Arabian horse; tell us about your experiences with some of the truly great ones starting with *Bask. As mentioned earlier, I never saw *Bask, however, I saw many of his sons and daughters including Cognac, Promotion, A Love Song, Wisdom, and Contessa B. We also owned daughters of *Bask, Promotion, Cognac and *Aladdinn. I remember Orans Adagio with Gene LaCroix up trotting into Freedom Hall. He was U.S. National Champion Park Horse out of a field of 34. He was awesome! We have not seen such a horse in some time. I remember seeing *Aladdinn for the first time. I was sitting at a table at the Paramont Stud in Ken., and he came from behind some bushes to be presented. I fell in love with that horse at that moment.

He had such a presence. Ed and I travelled to Lancer Arabian Stud in Florida in the early 80s and I saw the great stallion *Asadd as well as his sire *Sultan. Both were very impressive and Stanley White put on a great presentation of horses. I think the horse that really took my breath away was *Wizja (El Paso x Comet daughter). I was there to see her take the 1977 U.S. National Champion Mare in the days when there was only one National Champion Mare. Another horse that made an impression on me was the mare Europa, whom I saw in Poland. I had the pleasure of hugging her many times. She was aged, but still incredibly beautiful. Ed and I tried to buy the mares Kwestura and Zagrobla when we visited Michalów State Stud. They were youngsters then, but incredibly beautiful and could they trot! There are so many, many more … What is it like for you when foaling out one of your mares? When I am sharing that very intimate moment with my mare who is pushing her foal out into the world, I make a note of the time and pray that all will be smooth. I cannot help but notice that all the horses in the barn are so very quiet. We all seem to come together to share that special moment of birth. I have foaled out so many mares over the years and I have experienced different presentations and some problems. I always cry at the miracle of birth. That is just who I am. What country and its Arabian horse breeding programs would you love to visit that you haven’t? I would like to go to the Arabian Peninsula and see how the breeders there have progressed since the birth of the Arabian horse. I would like to see how they deal with the heat and the dust of the environment on broodmares and foals. How they thrive without the pasture environment. I guess they have survived for centuries without that luxury. Who are your Arabian horse girlfriends? My girlfriends locally are almost exclusively performance folks. I enjoy watching them compete and I am their biggest cheerleader. We enjoy getting together and I had some of them as guests in Scottsdale this year so they could learn the other half of showing.

Maureen with her son, Conyers.

Would you say that the Arabian horse has truly changed you and your late husband’s life? The introduction of the Arabian horse into our lives changed everything forever. It kept our children close to us through their teenage years because their free time was spent taking care of horses or competing in the show ring. It opened a world to us of challenges and rewards. Because of the Arabian horse, so many wonderful people from all over the world have come into our lives that we never would have known. I felt the Arabian horse kept Ed sane during his career years. It brought serenity into his life … we would sit at our barn and watch our foals play in the pasture in the evenings. We shared a wonderful life together and worked to achieve a common goal—to breed the perfect Arabian horse. n

The Canadian Nationals AUGUST

16 -22,

2015

by Anne Stratton

With hot weather now the hallmark of show season and the Youth Nationals on the horizon, it’s time to think about that other great summer national event—the one north of the border that draws rave reviews from those who attend. Here’s what to expect at the Canadian Nationals in 2015. The Basics The Canadian Nationals attracts 700 to 800 horses. About 25 percent of them, estimates Show Commission Vice Chair Allan Ehrlick, are Canadian entries, with the rest from the United States. This year, 207 classes are scheduled, with titles in halter, English, hunter and working hunter, western and working western, trail, dressage and equitation, as well as sport horse competition. And in addition to its regular awards, there is wildcard prize money: Blu Marketing again is sponsoring $5,000 as an added reward in the largest amateur class at the close of entries. That breaks down to $2,000 to the winner, $1,000 to reserve, and $250 each for the remainder of the top ten. 162 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

New In 2015 This year, the show has gone to seven days in order to better accommodate its growing lineup of classes and still keep the schedule relaxed. Also new on the agenda are four competitions in English Trail (open and amateur in purebred and Half-Arabian), due its popularity last year at U.S. Nationals, and Western Horsemanship for junior exhibitors and adult amateurs, in response to demand.

How Good Is The Competition? Very competitive, everyone says. “At the top of the classes, you’ll find that your champion and reserve, and five of the top ten, are superstar type horses,” says Larry Hoffman, of Hastings, Minn. The show has been on his schedule since it moved to Regina in 1988. “To win or place high in a class in Canada, that means something.” “The top competition there is as good as any show in our country,” nods Scottsdale-based Chris Culbreth, who has exhibited at the Canadian Nationals for more than 25 years (he skips competing only when he’s judging it). And the reasonable numbers, he says, have a benefit:


The Canadian naTionals

“You don’t have to go through five cuts. Usually it’s two rides for each class, so you don’t go through your horse. You have a fresh horse for the finals.” “Although you’re showing against great horses, it doesn’t have as much stress as the U.S. Nationals,” offers halter specialist Andy Sellman, of River Falls, Wis. “That’s not because of competition; that’s because of the environment that the Show Commission creates for the exhibitors there.”

Why Those Who Go Say They Love It There is the tough competition—“A title there means something,” as Larry Hoffman says. Allan Ehrlick agrees, noting that the Royal Red bronze trophies are not only beautiful pieces of art, but historic as well. And there is the relaxed, efficient flow of the event. “The Canadian Show Commission is wonderful to work with,” explains Hoffman. “They truly listen to the exhibitors. When we have concerns, they always have an open ear to listen and try to get things fixed in a manner that works for everybody.” Such comments would please Ehrlick, who has been on the Commission for 21 years. “We’re hands-on, right through the show, and we take a lot of pride in that,” he says. “And we have a ton of volunteers. No one has to try to find us; we’re there.” They are also very experienced: Chairman Gerald McDonald has served for 20 years, Tony Caughell for 19, and Dave Daugherty for six. This year they welcome Dan Cross, who is replacing longtime commissioner Carol Reed. Add to that, the Keystone Centre has been responsive as well; now in its fifth year as home of the event, it has offered improvements annually. And then there is Brandon. “You can go anywhere in Brandon and everybody knows about the Nationals,” says Culbreth. “They instantly recognize that you’re with the show and welcome you. The newspaper does articles every day on the front page, and that’s fun—you always see pictures of Americans with their horses!”

But It’s So Far … That’s a refrain sometimes heard in the United States. (So is every place, counter those who attend. Brandon,

Manitoba, is about two and half hours west of Winnipeg.) “If you fly in to Winnipeg, it’s an easy drive,” Culbreth notes, “and hauling horses is no problem either. When you cross over the border, it’s a small checkpoint and you’re in and out fast. The officials are so friendly and helpful, and then it’s an easy shot up to Brandon.” The point is, they all say, the Canadian Nationals is worth whatever effort it takes. “My family and my customers enjoy the excellent competition and the very warm hospitality,” says Andy Sellman. “We feel welcome there, both by the show and the community.” ■ Volume 46, No. 2 | 163


Wunderbar Arabians Fifty Years Of Breeding Function, Beauty And Type by Catherine Cole Ferandelli

Historically the prairie province of Saskatchewan attracted folks seeking opportunity through grit, determination and family unity. With long winters of -40F, howling winds and brief temperate summers, pioneer families worked hard, appreciated their resources and moved forward to a brighter future. Such was the Friesen family who founded Wunderbar Arabians nearly 50 years ago.

Still, they had never seen horses perform with such grace and refinement. Jake and Helen quickly decided they had to have a few Arabians of their own.

The prairie provinces of Canada are vast, wide spaces: many miles of amber waves of grain with few towns in between. The Friesens lived in Saskatoon, the nearest towns of any size hundreds of miles away. With that, Jake, Helen and son Ed knew Wildwood Kochar with Jake and Helen Friesen. they were on their own establishing a local outpost for Arabian horses. Back in 1966, Jake and Helen Friesen happened Early on, the big challenge was learning pedigrees by a local Arabian show in Calgary.

Maegan views Helen Friesen as her mentor: “My grandmother was a true animal lover, but actually afraid of horses. She admired their Arabians from a certain distance. Despite that challenge, she Ed’s wife, Laura Friesen, and my grandfather established Wildwood Kochar with Ed Friesen, multiple Park, English and Halter Champion. reminisces today, “Oh boy, he an Arabian horse breeding was the true foundation stallion operation that has enjoyed sales of Wunderbar Arabians.

This work ethic carried on with son (and Maegan’s father) Ed Friesen. Maegan reminisces, “In the early days as a young man, Ed would arise to start working and schooling horses at 5:00 a.m; working full time hours with the horses and then cleaning up to work full time at the family tack store business.” Ed would later meet and marry Laura Friesen who shares this same work ethic.

in that many, if not most of our horses, are not sold until they are at least 2 years of age. We feel it is in their best interest to live with us in their youngster years as regular horses do in a pasture setting. From there they come in to the barn where we seek out their talent. We focus on performance, but not any particular discipline. Then we can market our sale horses and promote their specialty.” Maegan continues, “Yes, we have produced halter horses too; several of them. A great example of that is our Wunderbar-bred stallion Mariachi WA (Bask Afire x Brooklyn Bey). Mariachi was a three year old Scottsdale halter champion who went on to win Scottsdale, Buckeye, Canadian and U.S. championships as a Junior Country English Pleasure horse with Joel Kiesner.”

While the quality of our horses speaks for itself, it is our foremost responsibility to screen and seek out the best possible fit when they move forward with a new owner to further their show or breeding career.”

After nearly fifty years, how does third generation Maegan Friesen view Wunderbar Arabians’ future? “I am fortunate to have been raised by the hardest working and most honest people I know. My grandparents started the Wunderbar Arabians tradition simply by being in awe of the beauty of Arabians horses.

any given day, visitors to Royal Arabians can find two silver-haired beauties enjoying each other’s company out in the pasture. Cinderella WC (SH Hallmark x WC Delekatka, by JF Avanti), age 21, and her best friend *Egzonera, 19, have earned their lives of leisure. From show rings to breeding sheds, they have produced wins and winners for many years. As the Royal Arabians matriarch, Cinderella holds a special place in her owner’s heart.

Cindy McGown describes first seeing Cinderella during a presentation at Greg Knowles’ facility, “I instantly fell in love with her! At the time, I inquired about her and she was not for sale, so I walked away but never got her out of my mind. A couple years later, she was offered to us and we jumped at the opportunity to own such an amazing mare.” As beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, Cinderella WC has an exquisite carriage and presence. Her sweet nature masks a fiery attitude that she passes on to her foals. Cinderella has been crossed with many different stallions over the years and still her best qualities continue to breed through. This year, her daughter Marmarra, by Gazal Al Shaqab, placed second in an outstanding class for owners Al Shahania Stud of Qatar at the Arabian Breeders World Cup in Las Vegas. The only mare ahead of her was World, U.S. and International Champion, *Wieza Mocy. Royal Arabians is extremely proud of and excited by the foals that Cinderella has produced for them including her stunningly graceful 2014 filly, Royal Aurora, by Excalibur EA and a gorgeous 2015 bay colt by Royal Invictus, himself a son of Ajman Moniscione and out of the exquisite mare San Jose Javiera.

Known for her extreme elegance, Cinderella has an exceptionally long, swan-like neck and chiseled, fine boned head that she passes along to her foals. Her femininity, stature, smooth conformation, and fluid motion combine to create a near-model horse. Cindy recalls a day in 2014 when photographer Kelly Campbell played on that theme by setting up a shot of Cindy’s grandsons playing with a white Breyer model horse, with Cinderella close behind them looking on. “I was so scared because the boys were so young, but Cinderella took amazing care of them.” That innate kindness can be seen in her huge, dark, expressive eyes, but Cindy values her as the total package that she is. “When I first saw Cinderella, she was captivating. Her eyes drew me in and her charisma was almost overwhelming. The longer I have owned this mare, the more I fall in love with her. She is a gem in so many ways! I also love that there is still appreciation for the old-style breeding mares like Cinderella; they are not only our past, but heavily impact our future.” With an eye to that future, Cindy will continue to breed Cinderella via embryo transfer to the finest stallions the breed has to offer. n Volume 46, No. 2 | 171


New AEPA Maturity Offers Fun, Excitement—And Cash! by Anne Stratton

If you have followed the Arabian English Performance Association, you know that it is not afraid to try new things. It has routinely fielded innovative competitions with potential, kept the ones that worked best (its lucrative futurities are well-supported), and replaced those for which the time had not yet come. Their newest is the AEPA Strawberry Banks Country English Pleasure AOTR Maturity, which debuted at this year’s Buckeye Sweepstakes, and it shows every sign of being a keeper.

On Friday night, May 22, a full class of 5- and 6-year-old purebred country contenders trotted into the ring, and when the dust cleared, the three-judge panel had selected EVG Tridan, exhibited by Lori Foster, of Kankakee, Ill., as champion. Along with the title came a check for $5,000; a further $3,000 went to the reserve champion, with $2,000 each for the remaining members of the top eight. “I love that AEPA recognized the importance of sponsoring and funding an amateur maturity,” Foster said afterward. “In this day and age, without sweepstakes money, it’s very nice to have a class that recognizes the impact of amateurs in the Arabian community. Unfortunately, even when an amateur wins at the national level, they get virtually no paybacks. I know none of us expect to get rich in this business, but just having the opportunity to win back even the entry money is nice. “I also have to say the energy and enthusiasm in that particular class at the Buckeye was amazing! It was probably the most fun purebred country class I’ve shown in, in a long time.” Six-year-old EVG Tridan, a son of Triften, was bred by Evergreen Arabians. In 2013, he was top ten in AEPA’s Arabian Horse Times $100,000 Futurity. “We felt it was a great debut for the class,” says AEPA President Peter Conway. “We had a high quality of horses in the class—they were beautiful. The AEPA exists to encourage participation in the English division, and by adding amateurs in our program, we feel that this is another big step toward that.” ■

Q & A Devin Miller

by Anna Redmond

How old where you when you started showing horses, your first horse’s name, and what did you show in? What do you remember most about your very first class? The first class I was ever in was before I was born and my mom was eight months pregnant showing horses. Obviously, I don’t remember that class, but I do remember the first horse I ever rode. His name was Prince and when I was two, he was my babysitter. I would ride around on him bareback while my mom trained horses. The first horse I showed was Farwyo, who was given to me by Woods Arabians. My first class I remember actually riding in was Lead Line Side Saddle. I had the most beautiful black and white taffeta skirt. I also showed in showmanship, and 174 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

I told my mom that I loved showing, but I did not want to ever do that class again. Luckily for me, that worked out. What advantages or disadvantages did you have growing up in the horse show world with a mother who is a trainer? For me, there were a lot more advantages than disadvantages to growing up in the horse industry with a mother who is a trainer. Being a horse trainer’s child makes you very independent and self-‐ sufficient, which has helped me to be successful in life. The biggest advantage for me was that I got to grow up with horses. I was able to ride many different disciplines and breeds, and traveled extensively to


horse shows all over the country. The disadvantages are that when you need help with homework, or even dinner, the horses always came first. What stands out most in your mind about being a youth rider? Difficulties and successes. I have two defining moments as a youth rider. The first was my first time at the Scottsdale show. I was ten years old and I won the Saddle Seat Equitation 13 & Under class, the Saddle Seat Medal 17 & Under class and the Saddle Seat Equitation Championship. This was my first big horse show and I was addicted for life! My second defining moment was when I won National Champion Saddle Seat Equitation and National Champion Stock Seat Equitation in the same year. How have you coped with the loss of special horses? It is without a doubt, one of the most difficult things to deal with–the loss of a special “horse friend”. It gives me peace to know that I loved, cared and did the best I could to give him/her a good life. Who has been most influential in your life with the Arabian horse? The person who has been most influential has been my mom, Vickey Bowman, because of her support and encouragement. There have been so many trainers that I grew up with and learned so much from; it

would not be possible to name them all. However, one of the most important to me has been Cynthia Burkman, who believed in me and helped me make the transition to being a professional. It is such an honor and pleasure for me to work for Burkman Centre. What are your hopes for today’s youth involved with Arabians and what would you like them to take away from their experience at Youth Nationals? My hope is that kids will be competitive and at the same time have good sportsmanship and when that gate opens, that they will ride to win. But when the class is over, I hope they can enjoy all the great kids at the show. Everyone has a common interest, which is the Arabian horse, so there are lifelong friendships to be made and enjoyed. It’s just the beginning, getting to youth; it is the friendships that will uphold you forever. There will be failures on this journey with horses, but turn those into learning experiences and you will be better for it. Who was/is your once-in-a-lifetime horse? I have had a lot of amazing “once-in-a-lifetime” horses. The ones that are near and dear to me are so special in their own way even with the successes and disappointments that we experienced together. Copper Penny stands out in my mind. Scottsdale was my first show with Copper Penny when I was ten and I continued to show him throughout my youth years. He was an amazing English and equitation horse and we shared many, many blue ribbons. He would always give me 110% every time we entered Volume 46, No. 2 | 175


the ring. I won my first Scottsdale blue, my first national top ten and my first national champion with him. Such great memories! Do you ever get nervous showing? If yes, how do you overcome it and if no, what keeps you from getting nervous? I get nervous all the time as there are so many variables in showing. You are dealing with animals that have their own personalities, but as soon as the gate swings open, my nerves go away. I know how hard I have worked and prepared to be there, and we have a job to do. The key for me has been to stay calm and focused on my horse and not to be so concerned with what is going on around me, except, of course, to be smart and stay out of trouble in the ring. I ride my horse to the best of my ability using all the information, knowledge and experience that I have. How does watching the youth that you mentor succeed or fail, pertain to your own personal goals? My personal goals are to help kids be the very best horsewomen/horsemen that they can possibly be. Integrity, sportsmanship, hard work and dedication are all the most important factors for me, and so it is 176 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

important for me to teach my riders those same qualities. Of course, if one of my riders does not do well, then I take a good look at where things went wrong and what I can do to help them be more successful. Even when my riders win, there are still things I can learn from their ride to help them be even better next time they enter the ring. What do you see the youth riders/handlers doing to promote the Arabian, Half-Arabian breed? Are there things that you believe the youth should be doing, as they are the ones that ultimately will keep the breed going? The youth riders that I am involved with are excited about showing Arabians and truly love what they are doing. That alone promotes the breed because their enthusiasm wears off on other people, making them perhaps want to get involved with the breed for themselves or their children. It is so important for the youth to promote the breed and be the ambassadors, so Arabians continue their excellent tradition. For the youth to promote the breed, they could volunteer at shows, help at handicapped riding programs, and generally get involved with their local and national Arabian horse organizations. n

Region 10 Cover Story

Conways ... Committed ... Coltrane

by ANNE STRATTON

The idea that Peter and Lori Conway, of Conway Arabians in Chatfield, Minn., might need to upgrade their commitment to the Arabian horse breed probably sounds strange to most people. Their program has been nominated as Breeder of the Year multiple times and both are known for their work in the industry, Peter as President of the Arabian English Pleasure Association and Lori through years of exhibiting, judging, and at one time, training (and for Region 10, she serves as President of the Minnesota Arabian Horse Association and on the regional show committee). However, raising the bar on their commitment is exactly what they have done. “We’ve always bred great horses—quality, good-minded horses,” explains Peter. “But watching the AEPA classes the last couple of years at the U.S. Nationals, we reached the conclusion that if we wanted to breed great English horses on a consistent basis, we had to up our game. After a lot of thought, we went all in.” Over the past 18 months, they have acquired a dozen young mares with focused, highly credentialed English pleasure bloodlines—three by Afire Bey V, five by Afires Heir and one each by Baske Afire, IXL Noble Express, Hucks Heritage V and Fire and Goldd. “Each of them is a great individual, selected for English talent,” Peter notes.

And then they added Coltrane SS. At 3, the black son of IXL Noble Express offers a pedigree of stunning English royalty. His sire is a U.S. National Champion in Park as well as U.S. National Top Ten Stallion, and his dam, Brassmis, produced four-time U.S. National Champion in English Pleasure Afires Heir. She is a daughter of the distinguished broodmare sire Brass, a son of *Bask. “Coltrane has what one would hope for from that pedigree—great motion, strong back end, big eyes and lots of pretty,” says Peter. “But what really may separate him as a breeding stallion is that long, soft neck and great poll. You just don’t see that in horses that have no Huckleberry Bey blood. I think we can cross him on our Huck-bred mares and actually improve ease of bridling, while bringing in all that athleticism. “We intend to breed great purebred English horses,” he observes. “We’ve made a major commitment to our program, and to the industry, to get that done. Our intent is to become a major player in the English breeding industry. That’s our goal.” ■

The 2015 Region 10 Championship Show A Full House! by STEPHANIE REITTER

T

his year’s Region 10 Championship Horse Show took place June 11-14 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, Minn. Each year, this show continues to grow, making it a more attractive and competitive region for people to attend. This year, all divisions were bursting at the seams with competitive and quality horses, leading to many classes exceeding upwards of 15 horses. In addition to the great halter, reining and performance classes at the show, Friday night held the annual Progressive Exhibitor Party where a variety of barns served a plethora of delicious food, drink and dessert options for everyone to enjoy. Music and dancing made it a fun event for everyone to attend and have the opportunity to mingle with one another. A Chuck-A-Duck competition was also held on Friday evening to benefit the Arabian Horsemen’s Distress Fund which is an organization that contributes to horsemen in need due to unforeseen circumstances. Saturday also made for a fun day for exhibitors and

spectators of the show. Scholarship presentations, a dog race jackpot class and a pole weaving and pennant race class was held for trainers to compete in. The pole weaving and pennant race class proceeds also benefited the Distress Fund; raising nearly $2,000. Shan Wilson won the overall title for having the fastest combined time for both events on the horse BC Huck Finn, and Kevin Price came in a close second. Costumes were also encouraged for the two classes which made it that much more entertaining. Stacy Dunn, who helped organize the classes, mentioned, “There were also prizes for the class, which were donated by Show Season, Be Dazzled by Dixie, Markel Insurance and Purina.” Dunn also notes that there will definitely be another fundraiser at next year’s Region 10 Show to benefit the Arabian Horsemen’s Distress Fund. The Region 10 Championship Show continued to do nothing less but deliver a great show with great classes and fun activities. If you were unable to attend this year, mark it on your calendar to attend next year!

he Hollywood Toi Foundation was established in September of 2014 in honor of one of the industry’s talented Half-Arabian equitation horses, PAF Hollywood Toi (2003-2014). Emme Moore and Jenny Lau established the foundation, two riders that were fortunate enough to be a part of Hollywood’s show career as an equitation horse. The Hollywood Toi Foundation serves as a means of providing support to the Arabian horse community and currently offers three financial grant opportunities for youth riders; two are scholarships and one is a sponsorship for a youth rider to attend and compete at Youth Nationals.

The first fundraiser that took place for funding the scholarships was the Trainers Equitation class that was held on Saturday night at the Region 14 horse show held in Lexington, Ky. Various trainers were nominated to compete in this class and members of the Arabian horse industry bid on their favorite riders. Twenty trainers were nominated and together raised over $60,000, which gives the foundation the opportunity to fund thirty scholarships. The class was ran as a traditional USEF, AHA class where rail work and a pattern was required and judged by the judging panel. A work-off was then completed between the top four riders that had the highest point accumulation after completing the rail work and pattern work. Leah Beth Golladay was named as the champion of this class and John Rannenberg was reserve. It was a prime example of how our community is truly cohesive and supportive. Emme and Jenny would like to extend a large thank you to everyone who was involved with making this class a success. “We are truly so grateful for everyone who helped make this event such a huge success; it far surpassed even our most ambitious goals and expectations.” n

T h e Yo u t h N a t i o n a l s E x p e r i e n c e F r o m A Tr a i n e r s P e r s p e c t i v e : Shannon Beethe

Number of years associated with the Arabian horse? I started showing 28 years ago. How did you get your start in horses? My family was involved in the Arabian horse world, so it was a n easy transition. My dad started training halter horses when I was very young, so I first learned halter and then moved on to performance with the help of my brother. You had a lot of experience showing as a youth, and it was something you did with your family. Please share that experience. I started training horses when I was 15 years old and showed at the first Youth Nationals in 1993. I had horses my family owned that I showed JOTR and then client horses I

showed in JTR. I recall so vividly how fun Youth Nationals was the first couple of years! It was such a fantastic addition to our industry. How many years were you involved with Arabian horses before you showed at the national level? I rode two to three years prior to showing at a national level. You have been on both sides of the fence, both as a youth exhibitor, and a trainer. What advice could you give to parents of youth riders? I would like of parents to understand that the competition at Youth Nationals is more advanced, more aggressive, and larger than anywhere else throughout the season. There is not another show all year that has the


have had so much success in many different arenas. I do also see how it can be frustrating to non-trainer kids trying to compete against them. I just do not see how we can penalize or separate the trainer’s kids out from regular competition or give them specialized rules that they have to abide by. We have to keep in mind, that not every single trainer’s kids get the same advantages as some of the well-known ones, so we have to be fair to everyone. So, I feel as though, it is just part of competition that some youth riders may have an advantage of some sort or another. There are also many adult amateurs that have certain things that give them an advantage, and that is just part of what competition is.

number of entries and level of youth horse and riders as Youth Nationals does. Therefore, they have to be realistic with expectations. Also, to keep in mind that while the entire Youth Nationals experience is incredible, it is a very intense, long, emotional, and trying, which can be stressful for horses, riders and trainers. With that being said, parents can really help (or hinder) the process by their reactions and emotions. I always tell my families going to Youth Nationals that there will be a lot of highs and lows while at the show. There will be tears … some of happiness and some of disappointment, and that I just hope that the parents help make the experience the best that it can be, no matter what the results are. And, my key statement that I preach (and with all due respect) … No ‘mama drama’ while at the show!

Do you think select rider classes should be at Youth Nationals? Absolutely, 150% ... YES, YES, YES! Select has been an incredible addition to our industry and is always one of the largest classes in every division at every show. To a youth rider making their first trip to Youth Nationals, what advice would you give them on dealing with the pressure of competing at a national level show? My advice would be to work hard, get as prepared as possible, and give it your all! The first year of Youth is a tough one and typically a learning experience. So, go into it with determination, focus, and the goal of doing the best that you can, but know that it is a journey and enjoy the ride. n

There has been a lot of discussion about trainers’ kids winning at Youth; what is your opinion on this? I think this is a tough subject. There is no doubt that trainers’ kids do have an advantage because of some of the following reasons: it is their parent(s) expertise or profession; having the opportunity with horses that may be offered by their parents or parent’s clients; the amount of time that they typically get to spend working with horses; and just overall time and knowledge from being in the barn more than most kids. I think that it is so awesome that so many trainers have had kids that want to be so involved and

Happiness Is …

The 3rd Annual Arabian Foal Festival! A ugust 22 - 23, 2015, L os o L ivos , CA by Theresa Cardamone

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness … those are the inalienable rights that the Founding Fathers chose to highlight in the Declaration of Independence. In the idyllic Santa Ynez Valley, Arabian horse breeders have taken those words—focusing especially the last one—to heart in creating the Arabian Foal Festival. Designed to get back to the grassroots pleasure that Arabian horses can provide, the 3rd Annual Foal Festival features amateur handlers, inexperienced young horses, and fun! 232 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES


Foal Festival

This year, the increasingly popular Foal Fest will move to a more spacious setting at Montanero Farms in Los Olivos, Calif., on August 22 – August 23, in order to accommodate the increased entries. It is clear that folks are looking for an alternative to the intense pressure that horses and horsemen are under at the upper level shows. As the show is geared toward supporting amateur handlers in showing their own unseasoned horses, rules such as regulating excessive clipping, no posed “stand up,” and no whips, have been adopted. In fact, the rules call for carrots or other treats as incentives to get the horses’ attention! The Foal Festival is the brainchild of a team of professional horsemen and breeders and is fast becoming one of the most popular events on the Arabian horse calendar. The Santa Ynez Valley has been at the vortex of Arabian horse breeding since the early ‘70’s or longer. Less than an hour’s drive from Santa Barbara, through the coastal mountains, Santa Ynez continues to draw breeders from around the globe who share a love of the Arabian horse. The Arabian Foal Festival is a collaborative effort of Santa Ynez Valley residents, old and new, to return to the kind of community events that fueled the development of the Arabian as the people’s horse in past decades. If the success of the first two years is any indication, horse fanciers of all kinds will enjoy this year’s wonderful event in its new setting. n

The Magic Of Poland A PREVIEW by Theresa Cardamone with Jeff Wallace

For decades, breeders have returned home after visiting the Polish

State Stud farms bedazzled by what they have experienced there. “It’s an indefinable magic,” or “the whole trip was magical,” are typical,

awestruck reactions. It is that special something that permeates

the atmosphere, something that fills the heart the way air fills the lungs. It is the partnership and connection between man and horse that is different here. It is the magic of a bond forged in freedom.

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


The Magic Of POland

Just as the lives of Bedouin tribesmen depended upon their desert horses, so did the lives of the Polish cavalry depend upon their Arabians. Time and again, the battles of the World Wars swept across the Polish countryside, sending freedom fighters into hiding beneath the straw at Janów, and the horses into headlong f light in an effort to survive. There is a reverence and feeling that in Poland, it is man and horse … together. On Friday, August 14th, the eyes of the world will once again focus on Poland as the famous clock tower at Janów Podlaski tolls the opening of the 2015 Polish National Championship Show and Pride of Poland auction. For the next three days, visitors to the national show will be charmed by local dancers in native garb, music and celebrations … all in honor of the Arabian horse. The Pride of Poland sale follows the championships on Sunday, August 16th.

For those who think that the auction is the grand finale of the week, think again. Over two days, dedicated horsemen will be treated to the spectacular breeding parades at Janów, Michalów and Bialka State Studs. It is magic to stand in front of a living matriarchal pedigree; five generations or more standing right in front of you. It is magic to see the validation and the promise that exists within the breeding herds. It is last year’s gold champion mare with a striking foal at foot that holds the promise of tomorrow. It is the exquisite grand dams of yesteryear, which won world, international and national titles in Paris, Aachen, Verona, the U.S. and so many other places. Yes, there is magic in Poland. And the good news is, the magic is there in never-ending supply. ■

The 35th Annual

Egyptian Event by CHRISTY EGAN

The first Egyptian Event was held June 12-14, 1981, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. It raised the bar for the Arabian horse industry in a way that would last for the next thirty-plus years. In its first year, forty-nine straight Egyptian Arabian stallions took part in the Hall of Stallions and ninety-one Egyptian and Egyptian-

Sponsor of The Egyptian Event was Arabians, Ltd., of Waco, Tex. This year’s show theme was “Stallions: Kings of the Nile” and the week’s best seminar was based on this theme and hosted by Joe Ferriss.

Rayyan (Ansata Sokar x Nadrah Al Rayyan) and the Gold Champion Mare was Rayyana Al Aliya (Ashhal Al Rayyan x Asrar Al Rayyan). Both mares were unanimous and both were also chosen Most Classic in their divisions. “The show was quite good this year, with an excellent turn-out,” said a smiling Anna Bishop, Pyramid Society 238 | A R A BI A N HOR SE T I MES

Executive Director. “Our visitors were relaxed, enjoyed themselves thoroughly, and were full of compliments. I think the judges in particular were very well received. Our appreciation and kudos to Manfred Hain from Germany, Talal Al Mehri from Kuwait, Ferdinand Schwesterman from Switzerland, and Richard Petty from Oregon.” Anna adds, “I was fortunate to have visited the Middle East and

experienced the white horses of Al Rayyan. I remember when I first saw them, I found their beauty so profound that it brought tears to my eyes. It is delightful that exhibitors and spectators at this year’s Event were able to see a few of these classically beautiful Egyptian Arabians.” The show’s Gold Champion Colt, Montage CCA (Ramses Mishaal Nadir x Bint Ananda CCA) was bred in America by Michael Cimino of Colthill Crescent Arabians, an Arabians, Ltd. affiliate, and shown by Frank Spönle. Montage CCA was also chosen Most Classic in his age group. Gold Champion Stallion was the handsome 15-year-old, flea-bitten grey, Phaaros (ZT Faa’Iq x Bint Atallah), a line-bred Ruminaja Ali straight Egyptian of great quality, shown by Austin Coleangelo for Alfala Stud, Saudi Arabia. Austin’s father, Mario Coleangelo, owns and handled the winning Egyptian Breeder’s Challenge Colt, Jaguar ABC ( Jaleel ABC x Ohanna Di Style JM) to the championship and winnings of over $20,000, while David Reissig led Bint Bint Asila RCA (*Mishaal HP x Bint Asila RCA) to unanimous roses in the EBC Fillies for Arabians, Ltd.’s Judy Sirbasku and Rock Creek Arabians of Waco, Tex. Speaking of the EBC, their stallion auction, held annually at the show, is one of the most successful programs of any niche group in the Arabian horse industry. Class payouts in 2015 exceeded $100,000!

A great part of the success and charm of the Egyptian Event is its focus on the spectator, the new breeder and the casual visitor. They put forth a veritable “waterfall” of social events throughout the week allowing for exploration of the horse world, learning from educational opportunities, and taking delight in socialization, during parties, gatherings and horse presentations. Each year someone of international notoriety is honored and this year’s horseman celebrity was Dr. Nasr Marei of Albadeia Stud, Egypt. On Friday evening during the Gala, Dr. Marei was awarded for his many years of dedication to the breeding and preservation of the Egyptian Arabian horse. The third generation of his family to breed Egyptian Arabians, Dr. Marei’s bloodlines are represented internationally. On Saturday afternoon, Dr. Marei signed his new book, The Arabian Horse of Egypt, for fans and collectors.

For that we are all indebted, and tip our hats to this 35-year-old showcase for the Egyptian Arabian. Happy Anniversary and many happy returns to the Kentucky Horse Park in June next year! n

RIYAN HOLTE A Touch of Style

Riyan with Maarik (ZT Marwteyn x Marcaaysa FA), a 2013 colt she bred. What is your “style” of marketing, photographing and designing? Less is more. Who has had the biggest influence in your involvement with Arabians? Truthfully, there are a lot people who have influenced my relationship with Arabian horses. My mom’s (Jo West) former involvement in the breed obviously exposed me to incredible people and spectacular horses from a very young age. To this day, her knowledge of pedigrees and her personal ability to describe each horse that crossed her path is astounding to me. I was 9 years old when she worked for Gene LaCroix at Lasma. I spent every moment that I wasn’t in

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

school in the stallion barn with *Bask, *Rustan, *El Paso and *Wisza (to name a few). The staff was very patient and came up with every odd job they could think of to keep me busy. I did everything from sweeping the barn aisle to eventually being given the title of *El Paso’s head groom. The job description included getting to hold him while he ate grass in the sun after a bath and brushing him every night. My fondest memories are of riding around in Dr. LaCroix’s golf cart with him as he personally recorded the cycles and breeding records of every mare that was bred. It took many years for me to truly understand just how much he and my mom molded my future in the Arabian horse community.   


What has the industry given you? The Arabian community is, has always been and will always be, “home” for me. My entire life has centered around Arabian horses and the people that love them. The “industry” has given me my home and the world. I have travelled to places I would never have dreamed of because of my involvement with them. One of my all-time favorite quotes is, “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard What do you consider your greatest achievement? My children. What are the three most positive things you’re seeing in the industry today? 1. A hunger for knowledge. When I was younger, it seemed like there were a lot more clinics and seminars and symposiums offered to educate the general public about Arabian horses. As of late, I have noticed that trend seems to be coming back. I believe it is due to the number of people that are expressing a hunger for knowledge from the professionals with experience and an understanding of the breed. 2. Exciting Shows and Events. I love that there are so many people passionately working together to create exciting events that draw people to the breed and encourage them to be involved in the beautiful lifestyle the Arabian horse community offers. Some see the “heated” debates about the horse shows as negative; I see them as incredible opportunities for growth and am encouraged by the efforts that so many are making to create a better overall show experience. 3. Quality horse breeding. I’ve noticed that people are more carefully planning their breeding decisions as a whole. I know a lot of people that are concerned about the decline in Arabian registration and fear the breed will disappear if we don’t do “something fast” … I disagree. I believe quality always trumps quantity. If you compare the overall beauty

Riyan at 9 years with *Bask. and Arabian type of the most influential horses today to those of years gone by, you cannot argue that they now carry a much closer resemblance to the Gladys Brown Edwards depiction of the ideal Arabian horse. Do you thumb through non-horse magazines for ideas? Almost every day! As a creative mind, how do you see the world? I find myself “framing” everything I see and analyzing how I could best capture and share what I see and feel while I’m looking at it. Honestly, it kind of drives me crazy! Knowing that you have a very extensive family background in horses, tell us a little bit about growing up in the horse world. I covered most of this above, but now might be a good place to express my gratitude for having had the opportunity to work with and be influenced by truly great horsemen, breeders, and professionals for most of my life. I hate to list names, because

Battaglia, and in most recent years, Frank Hennessey, George Z, and Bob and Janene Boggs. How does living in Scottsdale influence your work? I moved to Scottsdale about seven years ago, against my will ... I was certain I would hate it here, but I was very wrong. The exposure to a vast number of horses being bred, shown and marketed is very beneficial to everything I do. Living here has also inspired a number of creative ideas due to the number of people in the area that know about the Arabian horse because of the Scottsdale Show. The popularity of the show in this community has opened doors to reaching out and introducing more people to the lifestyle the Arabian horse provides.

Riyan and Frank Hennessey. as I said, so many have influenced everything about me ... but there are a few that specifically come to mind immediately: my mom, Rob Bick, Jerry Sparagowski, Dr. LaCroix, Gene LaCroix, Kim Morgan, Erin LaCroix, Mike Neal, Bob

Do you relate to the breeder, the trainer, or simply the enthusiast when it comes to Arabian horses? I feel blessed that I have had the opportunity to be involved in nearly every aspect of the breed through the years. I love that I can relate to trainers, breeders, horse owners and horse enthusiasts, and I work hard to see each point of view in everything I do. n

Bruges International Ar abian Horse Event by Jeff Wallace with Theresa Cardamone

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


Bruges ruges

2015 Bruges International Arabian Horse Event organizers Jurgen Lievrouw and Tim Dejonghe did everything within their power to produce an event where every need and comfort of the horses and exhibitors was anticipated and provided for. From excellent stabling to accessible promotional areas, no detail was overlooked in welcoming entries from all over Europe and the Middle East. The stunning, lush green setting and the very responsive show crew neutralized a pervasive rain and chilly temperatures. Bruges has become a hotbed of major players in the Arabian industry, with breeders, exhibitors and handlers of both straight Egyptian and modern globalized bloodlines presenting their top contenders. Talented trainers from all over Europe brought immaculately turned out beauties to vie for the various championships. In a dominant showing, Spönle-trained horses were gold champions in five divisions: the Junior Fillies, Yearling Fillies and Colts and the Senior Mares and

Stallions. Aja Carerra, an example of the golden cross of Marwan Al Shaqab and WH Justice, and bred and owned by Aja Arabians, was not only the Gold Champion Yearling Filly, but also the recipient of the coveted title, Best in Show. Gold Champion Junior Filly with Frank Spönle was AJ Barari who has a particularly interesting pedigree. Bred and owned by Ajman Stud, she is double Versace, by Vervaldee (Versace x Giavanna) and out of La Bella Versa FR (Versace x SA Shareyd). Versace and Giovanna are 3/4 siblings out of the *El Shaklan daughter Precious As Gold, a world-renowned mare that appears three times as AJ Barari’s great-granddam. Brothers Tom and Glenn Schoukens also had a great show, including Glenn’s presentation of the double Versace-bred Cadance PA, Gold Champion Junior Stallion. By the Versace grandson Cavalli and out of the Versace daughter Donatella, Cadance PA’s victory served to remind the world that the field of trainers in Europe is deep in talent. Raphael Curti won the Senior

Curti and partner Philip Looyens earned additional multiple silver championships for their clients at Privilege. Unofficially, the buzz in the crowd for the Gold Champion Yearling Colt made it clear that he had made a lasting impression. AJ Azzam, bred and owned by Ajman Stud and shown by Spönle, is by the Vervaldee son AJ Mardan and out of the Marwan Al Shaqab daughter, Ysadora. His incredible front end, exquisite head, and overall charismatic presence and quality make him one to watch in the future. In addition to Bruges, AJ Azzam was also the unanimous Gold Champion Yearling Colt and Best in Show at Wels.

Bialka Junior Spring Show JUNE 7-8, 2015 POLAND

by Jeff Wallace with Theresa Cardamone Founded in 1981 and the youngest of the three active Polish State Studs, Stallion Depot Bialka is an idyllic setting to raise horses. Brilliant green fields and charming barns built from local limestone enhance the pastoral feel. Each year, the finest young horses from throughout Poland come to Bialka for the annual Spring Show. Local dancers in Polish folk costumes create a joyous, celebratory atmosphere that is enhanced by other special touches. Everyone enjoys the charming, welldressed local girls who take delight in displaying a solid row of 20’s in unison, and the show arena is sheltered from the sun by a magnificent tree that provides a shady spot for horses waiting for their turn to perform. It is something of an icon for the place, a visual reminder of the rootedness of the Polish breeding program.

O

ne word can be used to sum up the results of the show: Kahil. Or rather, Kahil, Kahil, Kahil, Kahil … as his sons and daughters swept the gold championships in all four classes. It was an incredible display of the prepotency of his blood, both on his sire’s side, and also his strong Polish dam line. He always adds intense, repeatable qualities while letting the dam breed through, which has given him a remarkable opportunity. It is no secret that the Polish breeders sent many of their very best mares to Kahil Al Shaqab, resulting in his “sky high batting average” as the leading sire at the 2015 Bialka Spring Show. Kahil Al Shaqab (Marwan Al Shaqab x OFW Mishaahl, by Mishaah) was heavily represented among the winning entries. Standing out in that illustrious group of siblings was the Best in Show winner, Morion (Kahil Al Shaqab x Mesalina, by Ekstern). Bred by Michalów State Stud, Morion is

a bright bay with a striking carriage who seems to float over the ground when he moves. Great breeding horses are often stamped with characteristics of exceptional individuals in the tail female line of their pedigree. Morion’s giant, dark eyes and refined, elegant head are extremely reminiscent of his great-great-great granddam Mitra (Celebes x Manilla, by Doktryner), the favorite Kuhailan-type mare of legendary Michalów Director Ignacy Jaworowski. His faith in her contribution to the Michalów program has certainly born fruit in the form of Morion. Morion was also the Gold Champion Junior Male in a class that saw his half-brother Pitawal (Kahil Al Shaqab x Pepita, by Ekstern) earn the bronze championship. Kahil Al Shaqab sons won gold and silver in the huge Yearling Colt class of 26 entries, with Paris (x Palmeta, by Ecaho) winning the top prize for Janów Podlaski State Stud, and El Pais (x El Fatha, by Volume 46, No. 2 | 253


Entyk) winning the silver, also for Janów. The bronze champion in the class was Michalów’s beautiful Kwarc, a son of Equator (QR Marc x Ekliptyka, by Ekstern) and out of Kasjopeja, a daughter of the magnificent international champion and Triple Crown winner, *Kwestura (Monogramm x Kwesta, by Pesennik). In a very impressive showing, Equator also sired the Silver Champion Yearling Filly, Pontia (x Polonica, by Ekstern), who is a stunning tribute to her sire and an ethereal reflection of her dam line. Equator is an exciting show horse who has passed that winning attitude on to Pontia in large measure. Both the gold and bronze champions were by Kahil Al Shaqab, with Empuza (x Eulerta, by Ganges) earning the bronze, and Bambina (x Bellisa, by Poganin) taking the top honor. Bambina’s section of the 36 filly class was extremely deep in quality, with each of those 11 yearlings scoring a 90 or higher.

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

The gold championship for Junior Fillies went to Kahil Al Shaqab’s glamorous daughter Al Jazeera (x Alhasa, by Ganges), making it a clean sweep of the championships for Kahil Al Shaqab. The Silver Champion Junior Filly, Galerida, is the best example of her sire, Shanghai E.A. (WH Justice x Salymah EA, by Khidar), who left a handful of outstanding foals after standing inside the State Stud. Out of 2005 World Champion Mare Galilea (Laheeb x Georgia, by Monogramm), Galerida is even more typey and feminine than either her dam or her exquisite granddam Georgia, who will be offered to an eager public at the Pride of Poland auction in August. Galerida has a perfect topline and tail-set, which always makes a horse look expensive. The bronze champion in the class was Wersa (Ekstern x Wasa, by WH Justice), showing that Ekstern (Monogramm x Ernestyna) is not to be forgotten in all the excitement surrounding Kahil Al Shaqab.


B ialka

Also not to be left out in this Polish scenario is the exciting silver championship win by Calateon in the Junior Male class. Out of Calatea (Ekstern x Calineczka, by Metropolis NA), Calateon is a splendid son of Vitorio TO (DA Valentino x Sol Natique, by Solstice), currently on lease to Poland by U.S. breeder Janey Morse. Vitorio’s first Polish foals have done much to identify him as an up-andcoming sire of the highest quality. He has brought the *Mirage sire line back to Polish breeding, which is flush with stallions tracing to Nazeer, while Vitorio TO is virtually Nazeer-free. Phenotypically, he brings the shoulder and carriage evident in his daughter Perforia, who remains in the Polish breeding program after her breathtaking dam *Perfirka (Gazal Al Shaqab x Perforacja, by Ernal) was sold to Cedar Ridge Arabians at last year’s Pride of Poland sale. Perforia placed a scant half point behind the eventual Junior Champion Filly Al Jazeera, in the 2-yearold class after bringing the crowd to their feet with her lofty trot, wicked neck set, hooky throat, and extreme presence. Like the legendary Michalów-bred Emigrantka at Aachen years ago, Perforia really left us all dazzled. With a new roster of judges and a change of setting, there is always room for a different opinion that can lead to a new result in the subjective world of horse shows. But following the near-complete domination by Kahil Al Shaqab get at Bialka, there is little doubt that his offspring will be earning many honors at the Polish National Championship Show to be held at Janow Podlaski this coming August.

Reign Of Marwan … Rain Of Menton

by Jeff Wallace

Each year, the Arabian public congregates in the south of France to celebrate the horses they love. The achingly beautiful seaside town of  Menton  hugs the picturesque cliffs, ordinarily providing incredible vistas in every direction. This year, a persistent rain cloaked the area with low-lying clouds, hampering the view. But the steady rain of  Menton  did nothing to dampen the reign of Marwan as a dominant sire line once again, at the 2015 Mediterranean &  Arab  Countries  Arabian Horse  Championship in  Menton, France. 258 | ARABIAN A R A BI A NHORSE HOR SETIMES T I MES

Judges

The quality of horse f lesh at Menton is always shockingly high and therefore beyond pleasurable to all on-lookers—just truly amazing and this year was no less. *Hairy Al Shaqab, a glorious white son of Marwan Al Shaqab, bred and owned by Al Shaqab, took home the gold in stallions, as was expected, given the quality and beauty this stallion brings to the arena. *Baahir El Marwan, the silver winner with Glenn Schoukens for Al Saqran, was also quite dazzling and perfectly presented, and is a stunning grey son of Marwan Al Shaqab as well. The mare championship brought three more gorgeous greys to the winners circle. Klassical Dream MI, bred by Mulawa Stud and now owned by Al Khalediah was at her best on championship day with Philipe Hosay at the end of the lead. Her carriage and statuesque beauty, are both lovely to the eye. Klassical Dream MI is a reminder somewhat of AN Marieta, her paternal great-grand dam who was a United States Reserve

National Champion Mare, many years ago. The silver recipient, Norma, whose maternal grandam WN Nastasea was a gift from the late Deedie Wrigley to Director Jaworowski of Michalów Stud is a smooth beauty with a powerhouse Polish trot. The bronze winner, Salwa Al Zobair, perfectly presented by Tom Schoukens, hails from the E Line of Michalów Stud through her amazing dam, the champion *Eukaliptus daughter Esklawa. She is a wonderful tribute to her breeding, including her sire, the Marwan Al Shaqab son from Albidayer Stud, Marajj, and to her breeder/ owner Alzobair Stud of Sharjah. Menton is an experience much like that of the Kentucky Derby. Dawn Martin, for one, had on a magnificent black hat, celebrating the appearance of the sun finally, as did some of the ladies in attendance this year. The atmosphere is quite festive and is definitely the international spot to be and be seen, on the global annual Arabian show calendar.

estled in the Austrian foothills, Wels is home to the Austrian National Championships and International Show, the kickoff to the European show season. Both the International and National Finals draw from the same qualifying classes on Saturday, streamlining the event to two days, with the Finals being held on Sunday. The Austrian Nationals were nearly swept by Hanaya Arabian Stud. Their Israeli-bred Wadad Zamani was extremely impressive, wowing the judges and spectators alike as Gold Champion Senior Mare. A close second was her stablemate Bint Tahanie, who brought home the silver. The

same result occurred in the International finals, with Wadad Zamani earning 92 points to Bint Tahanie’s 91.88. Wadad Zamani was also named the Best Egyptian Horse at the International Show. Hanaya Farfoura, a homebred by Hanaya’s hot young stallion Kenz Al Baydaa, won the Austrian National Junior Filly Championship, with her half-sister Hanaya Jazeebah, also by Kenz Al Baydaa, earning the silver. Austrian National Junior Champion Colt honors went to Al Nadir, bred and owned by Gerhard Huber; and Hanaya Labid brought home the silver championship for owner/breeder Hanaya Arabian Stud.

Volume 46, No. 2 | 271


Rounding out the Austrian Nationals, Marjan Albidayer was the Gold Champion Stallion. He is bred by Albidayer Stud and owned by the Marjan Syndicate. Marjon had earlier earned the silver award at the International Show, placing second to Espressivo, a QR Marc son owned and bred by Knocke Arabians of Belgium. Knocke scored two gold championships at the International Show, the second going to Gold Champion Junior Filly Sylvatica KA, also by QR Marc. The Polish-bred Ekstern daughter, Wersa,

earned silver in that class. Another multiple winning farm was the Dubai Stud, who made an impressive showing in the yearling classes. Dubai Stud homebreds D Safana and D Heba won the gold and silver championships for Yearling Fillies, and D Karrar collected the silver for Yearling Colts behind Gold Champion AJ Azzam, owned and bred by Ajman Stud. The extremely high caliber of the entries, from all over Europe and the Middle East, bodes well for an extremely exciting show season to come.

A JUDGES PERSPECTIVE R ic ha rd Wr i g ht

W

hat is your involvement with the Arabian horse? My first top tens in the Arabian breed were in 1972. I have been involved as a trainer, coach, breeder and judge since that time. I attended my first Arabian Nationals in 1967 as a spectator.

You will be judging Canadian Nationals this year. What divisions will you be judging? The assignments in Canada are more varied, but primarily the open western and hunter, with some English classes.

How many years have you been a trainer and judge in the Arabian horse industry? I have trained and judged for nearly forty years.

Having been involved in the Arabian horse business as a trainer, owner, judge, instructor and exhibitor, for you, what are the best parts of being in center ring vs. sitting in the stands? I enjoy being in a position to reward a great performance.

You have judged horses all over the world. What locations has it taken you to? I have judged here in the U.S., Canada and South Africa.

When it comes to show ring attire, you are one of the best. What could you share with the readers in regards to show ring attire and what you feel is

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


proper vs. improper? I do spend a great deal of time over detail with my riders and feel that so much can be said with a spotless and perfectly fitting presentation. I do enjoy attire that is innovative, while still flattering for both the horse and rider. Attire that is garish and/or poorly fitted reflects badly on both horse and rider. Proper attire would most readily apply to the country pleasure division where it calls for “conservative attire” in the class specifications. There is not a single sequined vest, bejeweled collar, or Liberace-inspired ensemble that would be “proper” for this division. In the world of show ring etiquette, what is your three biggest pet peeves that people do not always practice? 1.) Obvious empathy and compassion for the horse. 2.) Flawless and courageous courtesy for other exhibitors and show officials. 3.) Understanding that the class is a performance that is time sensitive.

In your eyes, who was the most beautiful halter horse you ever judged? The Polish mare Espada. And the most talented performance horse? The HalfArabian gelding Adams Fire. What is the funniest moment in the show ring for you as a judge? In a purebred mare finals, a fellow judge releasing a horse to trot off with the words, “Okey Dokey.” What is something that most would be surprised to know about you? I am not influenced by an obviously expensive and elaborate presentation over something clean, simple and powerful. 50 years from now, how would you like someone to describe you as a judge? Knowledgeable, unquestionably fair, brutally honest, passionately in love with the Arabian horse and not a bad dresser! n

In Memoriam

Larry F. Torgerson (1938-2015) Larry F. Torgerson, 76, of O’Fallon, Mo., formerly of Owatonna, Minn., passed away June 2nd at St. Luke’s Hospital, Kansas City, Mo. Torgerson was born Sept. 29, 1938 in Cosmos, Minn., and moved to Owatonna after attending Augsburg College. Torgerson then met Lyle Anderson and Wayne Thompson, who introduced him to the world of Arabian horses. Torgerson purchased Pistoleero in 1967 as a young colt and enjoyed many wins throughout the Midwest before selling him as a 2-year-old. He then purchased Half-Arabian gelding Shannin, who won the 1969 national championship in halter and was top ten in Half-Arabian open English with 13-year-old Susan Shea. Torgerson’s excitement for Arabian horses led him to the position of national sales manager for Arabian Horse Times magazine when in Waseca, Minn., and then national sales director for Arabian Horse World magazine in Templeton, Calif. Long-time friend Anita Grant remembers Torgerson’s remark upon retirement, “I will miss the magazine business because of the contact with the Arabian horses and all the friends I made over the years. Don’t be surprised if you see me wandering around some of these Arabian shows. I still can’t get them out of my system.” Torgerson is survived by a son, Daniel (and Laurie); three daughters, Stephanie Sippel, Anne (and Les) Aune, and Lori (and fiancée, Joel Cockram) Torgerson Pinkley; a brother, Jim (and Bab) Torgerson; 11 grandchildren; and a great-grandson.

Donald (Don) Fletcher (1952-2015) Life-long horse trainer Donald Fletcher, 63, passed away June 14th, at home in Rosemount, Minn. Fletcher owned and operated Equitare, a horse boarding and training facility in Rosemount for 28 years. He was a versatile horse trainer with regional wins showing Arabians and HalfArabians in English pleasure, western pleasure, hunter pleasure, show hack, native costume, trail and halter. Fletcher started his training career at RM Arabians, owned by Ruth Mueller, where he met his life-long partner, Tom Kelzenburg. “He was among many other trainers who honed their talents with Jerry McRae at O’Mac Stables before starting out on his own,” said Anita Grant, long-time friend. “Though he was retired, Don was a well-liked trainer and past clients appreciated his honest, straightforward approach with them and their horses.” In the photo, Don is aboard Bay El Tina, owned by Paul and Pat Larson. Tina was unanimous English pleasure champion out of 24 horses at the Region 10 show in 1983 at the age of 3. Before her fourth birthday, Tina would earn a top ten in open English pleasure at the 1984 Scottsdale show with Don. Don was preceded in death by his parents, Bernard and Helen. He is survived by life partner, Tom Kelzenberg; daughter Megan Larsen; brothers, David (Kathy) and Dean; nephews, Scott and Greg Fletcher; nieces, Amy Jarret and Meg Schlessinger; former wife, Jennie; other loving relatives including the Kelzenberg family; many caring neighbors; and the wonderful community of horsemen and horsewomen. A celebration of life was held June 22nd in St. Paul, Minn., and a memorial page can be found by searching for “Donald B. Fletcher Memorial” on Facebook.


In Memoriam

Hesa Zee+/ (1988-2015)

Fforever Rose (1985-2015)

Hesa Zee+/ (Xenophonn x Somthing Special), owned by Eleanor Hamilton of Minneapolis, Minn., was a leading Arabian working western sire.

Fforever Rose (Khemosabi x Chantilly Rose), the “Queen” of Jade Creek Arabians, was laid to rest in the pastures of Heaven on June 26th.

“I have lost my horse of a lifetime,” shares Eleanor. “Hesa was my friend, the focus of my farm, and the holder of my heart for over 20 years.”

Born Feb. 19, 1985, “Rosie” was shown only three times. In a class of 19, she was Scottsdale Reserve Champion Mare AAOTH, shown by Joelle, the stepdaughter of Jade Creek Arabians owner Manny Lawrence; then went on to be named Region 3 Champion Mare with Greg Gallún, and Canadian National Champion Mare AAOTH, again with Joelle.

Hesa, 27, left his legacy on the working western division through the expert breeding program at Eleanor’s Arabian Farm. He sired nearly 160 offspring, was the No. 1 sire of reining futurity winners in 2012, and was the sire of nine Scottsdale, U.S. and Canadian National Champions and Reserves. In total, his offspring have won 12 U.S. and Canadian National Champion and Reserve titles, four Scottsdale Champion and Reserve titles, and 95 Regional Champion and Reserve titles. In addition, the striking bay stallion, bred by Tom Miller, was ridden to a Canadian Reserve National Championship, a U.S. National Top Ten and a Scottsdale Championship by his then-trainer Russ Brown in the early and mid ‘90s. Eleanor showed Hesa to four U.S. and Canadian National Top Tens in reining and last showed him to a Regional Top Five in western pleasure. “Hesa greatly contributed to the quality of Arabian working western horses we see these days, and he had a superb temperament,” she said. “His Xenophonn bloodline will continue to live on in the 2016 offspring and in the foals conceived via frozen semen in years to come.”

Rosie was the dam of numerous champions including: Petrus JCA and Dominic JCA—both by Legacy of Gold— and well-known and well-producing mares Olivia Rose JCA and Lyla Rose JCA, both by Brandon Bey JCA+. “At 30, Rosie was as beautiful as the day I purchased her in 1996,” shares Manny. “She was my first national championship, and will forever hold a special place in the hearts of all in the Jade Creek family. With a heavy heart, I bid her farewell knowing that she will have a special place in the hearts of her many fans. Those gigantic eyes and her expression will always be the first thing that comes to mind. Love you, Rosie.”

P RINCE JAMEs sf (2006-2015)

It was love at first sight for Jamie Costanzo, Los Angeles, Calif., who first saw Prince James SF win a U.S. National Championship in 2012. One year later, Jamie would return and win her first U.S. National Championship unanimously aboard James.

Michael Johnson, a close friend to both Jamie and James, adds, “The love and bond that Jamie and Yamison, as Jamie would call him, were like nothing I’ve ever seen. They were truly meant to be in each other’s lives. May you rest easy, Yamison.”

Jamie’s aunt, Lori Lawrence, first saw the bay gelding when she was horse scouting for Jamie. “James oozed beauty and style. He was balanced in the bridle and had that ‘look at me’ attitude,” she said.

In all, the 9-year-old Half-Arabian amassed two U.S. national championships, a national top ten, and numerous regional championships in country English pleasure, and had just recently been successfully show in country pleasure driving classes.

And, as Lori reflects, he came along at an opportune time for Jamie. “He helped her to love and laugh and appreciate her life again. Their bond was one most only hope to have in a lifetime. Jamie will forever be grateful to have shared her heart with this extraordinary horse.”

“I haven’t seen her smile more broadly than when she was astride James. He will be missed greatly by me and others, his trainer Jim Lowe, but most especially, Jamie,” says Lori.
