ach year we celebrate those professional trainers and amateurs who’ve sailed to the top of their disciplines at three 2013 National shows: U.S., Canadian, and Sport Horse — our TOTALLY TOPS winners. The tallies on the following pages are based on the sheer number of wins per trainer, with considerations for catch rides (which may not be reflected in the printed results). Other details on how the “Tops” were tallied appear on the next page. New to the Tops: With the addition of English Trail Classes at last year’s U.S. Nationals, we’ve added “Trail” to our listings for 2013 and beyond. This includes both traditional trail classes as well as English Trail. Kudos to those who’ve made Tops in previous years (indicated by ◆ ), and those who competed and excelled in more than one discipline. The Multidiscipline list also appears here, with an in-depth analysis of each trainer’s wins displayed online at www.arabianhorseworld.com. Join us as we salute our Totally Tops 2013 winners. We thank them for their fine examples of horsemanship, and for taking the Arabian to ever higher levels of performance.
