I’d like to introduce you to a few new members to the AHN team. Welcome to our new News reps for Victoria, Dee and Nicola Kelly, for South Australia we have Tania Edmonds and we also welcome Kelly Mason who will be keeping us up to date with everything happening in New Zealand.
o much has happened since the December edition. It’s been another action-packed few months with many great Arabian events like the Aussies and East Coast Championships kicking off the year. We’ll cover these shows and many more events in this edition and there are some great story contributions to enjoy from many different authors. I’d like to thank everyone who has sent in feedback, article ideas, and contributions – please keep them coming! Thank you to everyone that entered last edition’s competitions. Congratulations to Belinda Robertson and Ghost Whisperer, the winners of the Win a Lesson with Judy Dierks Competition, and to our Cover Baby, Eminem Mandorlati and his owners on their popular win in the AHN cover contest. There were so many lovely foals in the cover comp, and of course I wish they could all get a cover, but as there simply aren’t enough to go round, I hope that everyone has been enjoying those other beautiful entries through the Arabian of the Day facebook posts. To those who missed out, don’t worry – there’s plenty more competitions coming. We have one beginning right now, and if you feel like a holiday with your horse, you might want to enter. I tried this place out for myself (I do anything for the job, seriously) and I can certainly recommend getting an entry in. Now, there’s bound to be some disappointed ‘not another NSW competition’ murmurs. Why not another state? Well, I tried. I really did. So if you know of someone in the horse industry generous enough to donate a wonderful prize in return for some fantastic publicity, I would really love to hear from them.
Welcome also to Glenys Lilley as our new columnist. For those of you who don’t know her, Glenys is a very highly regarded National Panel Judge, with many years’ experience of judging at the highest levels. Glenys is also very enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge and advice, and in her new column ‘Ask the Judges’, Glenys will attempt to shed some light on what it takes to be the best you can be in the ring. We have two features in this edition for you to enjoy, one looks at small studs in NSW and the other focuses on Arabian Derivatives. You’ll notice too that our youth section is expanding, thanks to the amazing efforts of AHSA board Member, Tracey Keller. And don’t forget, while reading through this edition, that if you have any ideas, stories or anything else you’d like to say, please email me at email@example.com or contact your state news rep – they’re listed below. All the very best until the next edition ..

For enquiries about The Australian Arabian Horse News please contact VINK Publishing Advertising – Ph: (07) 3334 8000 Editorial – E: firstname.lastname@example.org Arabian Horse Society of Australia The Arabian Horse Society of Australia had its origins in an advisory committee of Arabian breeders which was formed under the auspices of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW in 1950. The aim of the committee was to assist in the collection and maintenance of the records of Arabian horses in Australia. The Arabian Horse Society of Australasia, which later became the Arabian Horse Society of Australia Limited, was officially formed in 1957, with a membership of 47. At the end of 1997 the Society’s membership was in excess of 4,800 and the Registry had recorded some 97,000 pure Arabian horses and Arabian derivatives. The Society’s first responsibility is to maintain accurate records for all registered Arabian horses and Arabian derivatives in Australia. It also seeks to promote the popularity of Arabian horses to non-members throughout Australia, and statewide, regional and local affiliate organisations.

EMINEM MANDORLATI CONGRATULATIONS TO EMINEM MANDORLATI – THE GORGEOUS COVER BOY FOR THIS EDITION OF THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS. THE BEAUTIFUL PHOTO OF THIS LOVELY COLT STANDING PROUDLY AND FULL OF MISCHIEF IN HIS GOLDEN PADDOCK WON THE HEARTS OF VOTERS, LEAVING HIM TO WIN BY AN IMPRESSIVE MARGIN. I ASKED MEGAN MENZIES, HIS OWNER AND BREEDER, TO SHARE A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MANDORLATI, AND SHE HAS KINDLY SHARED HIS STORY BELOW ...
By Megan Menzies
minem Arabians is a small stud managed by Megan Menzies and is located near Wagga Wagga NSW. The stud only produce a couple of foals each season and in the 2013 season we were lucky to breed this beautiful colt. Eminem Mandorlati, or ‘Chilli’ as he is affectionately known, was born at 3am on the 20th August, 2013, a freezing cold, minus 4 degree morning, and even though he wasn’t the black filly that I had prayed for, I knew that he was super special from the moment he arrived. His dam is the stunning jet black mare AlDahma (Maf-Ue Shaienne x Al-Ya-Bint-AlHawa) and his sire needs no introduction, being the Scottsdale Champion, Victorian Classic Supreme, East Coast Champion and Australian National Reserve Champion Senior Stallion – Gai El Jullyen (US) owned by Jess Wilson and Jason Hodgins from JH Show Training. 12 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
At five days old, I nearly lost Chilli. He was rushed to the Charles Sturt University Wagga Vet Clinic. It only took four days to have the veterinary staff and students wrapped around his finger. After careful monitoring and regulating his feeding, Chilli made a very quick recovery and has not looked back since. He is the quietest foal Eminem Arabians has ever bred and has all but converted my non-horsey family to love horses as much as I do. He will talk to you when you are in the paddock or yards with him, he is always first up to you for a scratch and pat, and is so easy to take beautiful photos of because he is a big show off. I cannot wait to see him mature. He will be a super saddle prospect and has all the makings of a true champion in the show ring. He has an unflappable nature and is a wonderful ambassador for just how beautiful the Arabian horse can be. ▮

Australian National Arabian Championships 2014 GLITZ, GLAMOUR, FUN AND CAMARADERIE… WITH A BIT OF A STORM THROWN IN!
By Kerri Grisham | Photos by Michael Vink (unless noted otherwise)
he 2014 Australian National Arabian Championships were held at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre from 13 – 16 March, and the show looked an absolute picture with the indoor arena being beautifully decorated and classy – a fitting backdrop from which to display some of the country’s most amazing Arabian horses. Judges included Mr. J. Lacina, Mr. A. King, Mr. D. Rutherford, Mrs D Watson, Mrs D TaylorThies, and Mrs S Oberg in the rings, with Sue Lewis, Pip Tonkin, Julie Jones, Prue Spurrett and Pamela Russell-Green on the dressage. This year, we saw some major changes in the program, including the running of two rings simultaneously, bringing the length of the show down from five days to four. It was an amazing show – even with the storm that rolled in fast Saturday afternoon, washing out Ring 2, holding up Ring 1 and flooding campsites.
But as they say, the show must go on, and that it did. The quality of the horses and their turnout was, as expected, exceptional, and is a credit to all owners and exhibitors. The classes were hotly and closely contested and spectating was exciting and enjoyed by all. The largest halter class was for the purebred fillies, while under saddle the Arabian geldings saw more than twenty horses competing for the title. For full results, turn to page 90 of the magazine. Saturday afternoon saw the beautiful stallion First Alert canter around with the Australian flag for the opening ceremony. He hadn’t been ridden for a while – 2013 East Coast Championship is the last time he had seen a saddle – yet he proudly took his rider Katie Smith around the ring showing off his amazing temperament. After the opening ceremony we saw a special presentation of recognition
for the imported Arabian gelding Amurath Santiago, who has now retired from the show ring to focus on his TV career. A very different event that drew crowds was the barrel racing. In the youth section, Kody Dertell and Sarah Olsen sent their mounts flying around the course to take out firsts in their respective classes, and provide some fun entertainment. Of the youth competitors overall, Tracey Keller, AHSA Board member for youth development writes, ‘All the youth did a fantastic job and showed really positive attitudes and great sportsmanship. There were some lovely horses that were very well matched to their riders and handlers. There are a lot of extremely talented young riders, handlers and judges in the Arabian horse industry today and I hope they remain involved with the Arabian horse. Most importantly they all looked like they were enjoying themselves and having a lot of fun.’ THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS 13
The Graham Smith sportsmanship award was this year unanimously won by Jason Hodgins. Though Jason was ‘surprised, humbled and excited’ by the honour, anyone who has seen Jason handle horses in the ring (and out of it) will appreciate the decision. Jason has also announced that he and Jess Wilson will be generously donating $1000 prize money to the AHSA Youth Development program. There were some great moments, with many competitors and spectators commenting that it was the best show in years. The Arabian Horse Society should be congratulated on providing Australian competitors with a successful, organised, enjoyable and rewarding worldclass event. With the Aussies rotating again, Victoria will host the show in 2015, before it moves to Queensland in 2016.
proud and excited when I was invited to judge this year for the first time. I appreciate the AHSA directors for their confidence in asking me to officiate of what I believe is the most prestigious Arabian show in Australia. It was a privilege to co-judge with Internationally respected and experienced Jaroslav Lacina from the Czech Republic, Adam King who I have known since his early teens and the two ladies Debbie Taylor-Thies and Deb Watson. I do want to make a comment and it is my personal opinion regarding the current trend of shaving around the eyes and muzzle. I am not against using a little makeup or gloss and clipping to enhance a horse’s appearance, but

the extreme shaving and patent leather look detracts from the horse’s natural beauty and does not enhance their distinctive qualities. Just as women use makeup to enhance their appearance, overdone is unattractive. Generally all horses exhibited were well conditioned, presented and well behaved. I admire any handler who has control of a 450kg breeding stallion with a fine show halter and a chain, the only course of control – not a chain over the nose nor bits as other breeds. Most judges believed ‘shanking’ was kept to a minimum and a reminder to the horse to pay attention. I know I would rather the see the horse’s focus on the handler than the stallion next to him! The Native costume, Arabian and Arabian Derivative class was fantastic to judge. All the exhibits worked well and that was great to see. I was particularly happy with my choice for Champion and Reserve, as they were outstanding and deserved the accolade they received. The Youth classes were and always are a 16 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
delight to Judge. The demeanour, confidence and manners of these young exhibitors were outstanding. Memorable moments; The little boy in the blue vest who’s mare really caused him to run, fast, only to be saved by my steward Donna Greene, then whilst awarding the ribbons he wanted to start an indepth man to man conversation but, when I went to shake his hand to congratulate him he informed me
he “was a bit too busy at the moment thank you!” Also, the little girl who asked me to hold her pony while she congratulated her fellow competitors. Kudos to the parents of all the youth, these kids were wonderful, you should all be so proud. Another very memorable moment was the surprising, beautiful and thoughtful

We were thrilled and humbled and would like to thank those who made it possible. Thanks Karen, Leonie, Alan, Tessa, Donna and Michael, Glenys and my wife Colleen, you were absolutely amazing, I cannot thank them enough. Those in the announcers box, Richard x 2, Lorraine, Tracey and Virginia made sure all of us in Ring 1 were kept on our toes. It is
apparent those in Ring 2 were also out there doing a wonderful job. The current Board of Directors and office staff are really trying their best to keep the Australian Championships alive and well, thank you to all of them. Although the numbers were not as great as years past, the quality of the horses has assured me and I am convinced the future of Australia’s Arabian horses and the Derivatives is in great hands. Thank you to the breeders, exhibitors, trainers and the youth for presenting your horses at the Championships. I was sorry
Rochelle King-Andrews: “The Arabian Horse Society and the steadfast dedicated Committee that ran the 2014 Australian Championships made it a superb show. The program was excellent and ran beautifully. The fresh new program kept it competitive, fast moving and interesting for spectators. As a group and individually they handled the stresses and strifes of dealing with highly strung, sometimes unreasonable, people professionally. We enjoyed dealing with a group of people that ran such a competitive show with a smile and with such precision. We were super impressed and look forward to the next one!”

to see some not 100% on the day; I felt your disappointment and heartbreak. The decisions were close in most classes, which are reflected in the consistency of the judges’ scores and placings. We were presented with beautiful horses in each section we judged and I thank the exhibitors and their connections for the courteous attitude while showing their horses. I am aware of the expenses and commitments involved in showing and want to thank each of you for supporting the AHSA and those who love the Arabian show scene. May it always continue. I have been described as “a practical and experienced horseman” and I hope you can see this by my decisions reflected in the results. Mr Adam King Judging at the 2014 Australian National Arabian Championships was both a privilege and an honour. To be invited to judge among my peers after a lifelong involvement with the Arabian Horse was one of the highlights of my career. The quality of the horses was exceptional as was the professionalism of the handlers and riders. The Amateurs and

Alandi Durling (Sienna Stud Arabians): I thought the committee that organised the show this year did a great job. It would have been nice for all the Derivative sections to have the same break up of classes â€“ but hopefully that will come. We only took 2 halter horses this year which was a first for us. I was very proud of our small team with Sienna Conchetta bringing home Reserve Champion Junior Anglo and Sienna The Tango Champion Arabian Riding Pony Stallion/ Colt. This was a great result for Tango as he is only just over 12 months old (a February 2013 foal). Sienna Journeey owned by Future Farms also had a great show with several Championships, Reserves and Top 10s.

heard about the high quality of Arabian horses, Partbreds and Derivatives in Australia, and this was confirmed for me as I really liked many of these horses, from all categories. The Partbreds and Derivatives were very good, and the Arabian Ponies really looked like a miniature Arabian horse. I also found high quality horses in the Purebred classes, and I think many would be able to successfully compete in the shows around the globe. In talking about the show in general, I would like to highlight the organisation of the whole event, which was absolutely perfect! Everyone involved did a great job, and even working for many days from early morning till very late in the night, these people were still full of enthusiasm and able to smile to everybody around. All these experiences left me with the positive impression that I was able to judge a show in a country with wonderful people, who love their wonderful horses. Thanks a lot to everybody for such unforgettable memories!

SAARABS WEDDING On the 7th December, SAARABS Secretary, Tegan Harris married Aaron Schmidt. The ceremony was held at the picturesque Mount Lofty House, in the Adelaide Hills. The bridal party included seven groomsmen and seven bridesmaids, with Tegan’s sister, Kirsten Archer, as the Matron of Honour and Aaron’s friend, William Goss as the Best Man. Tegan wore a hand-beaded tulle gown with a five metre train. The couple shared the day with 150 of their closest friends and family, then spent their honeymoon at the Victorian Arabian Classic, where Warrawee Intreeg was sashed Champion Arabian Warmblood Gelding.
SAARABS INC. SUMMER BBQ On 4th January the club extended an invitation to the equestrian community to join us for our Christmas / New Year social event. Hosted by Gloria Harris, Tegan and Aaron Schmidt at their lovely Harris Farm in the Adelaide Hills, it was the perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon on the sprawling lawns. A group of around 40 people attended including members and the committee. We were entertained with live blues music by Lucas Holland and Brian Dodridge. They were absolutely brilliant and we highly recommend them to anyone for a social function. The family chihuahuas also provided entertainment, and I am sure they ate way too many sausages! The fabulous weather also meant we could take advantage of the lovely pool at Gloria’s house. It was a lovely relaxing afternoon and as a club we look forward to hosting many more events like this in the future.

Although he has never been an easy horse to ride, his personality and his ability to learn (once concentrating!!) was what encouraged me to persist with him in a dressage career.

levels. In 2013 we took the step up to Elementary and were awarded the Spring Championships Champion Elementary Pony. In both 2012 and 2013 Fox earned the title of South Australian EA dressage pony of the year which resulted from consistent results at nominated events over a 12 month period. I am very proud of what Fox and I achieved together and believe he is a deserving winner of these awards. I hope he now continues on his winning way and climbs the ladder to higher levels at dressage.

Standout derivatives included the magnificent Arabian Warmblood FeverFF (CraveFF x Double TT Fevia), recently sashed Supreme Champion Senior Derivative at the National Arabian Stud Show, and the equally impressive Australian Champion ConchertoFF (Burren-dah the Wizard x Aloha Symphony), who performed handsomely for his audience. A beautiful collection of mares, youngstock and sale horses followed the stallions, and were just as well received. They included horses of both Australian and imported breeding, with such illustrious names as WH Justice and Pogrom represented by their get and grandget. A suite of elegant grey mares; Athena FF, El-Shama, Lovely Iimage (US) and Emmocja (US), captured the eyes and hearts of many with their quintessential Arabian beauty and soft black eyes.
FUTURE FARMS OPEN DAY The Future Farms Open Day dawned warm and sunny, with perfect weather once again making itself felt for the annual ‘Celebration of the Arabian Horse’. Live entertainment and a few trade stands greeted the many visitors who came for the horses and stayed for the after party.
Future Farms once again have an excellent crop of foals on the ground, both purebred and derivative. An outstanding Arabian Warmblood colt by SF Sir Real and out of Double TT Fevia stole the show with his enormous uphill movement and presence, and was very well-matched by a complement of other lovely youngsters including the typey and flamboyant yearling filly Shimmer FF (CraveFF x Mystica Sunshine).
The parade of horses began with the stallions at stud. The newly imported purebred stallion Status LL (US) (Marwan Al Shaqab x GLF Promises Kept), owned by Maylor Arabians, attracted many second glances from breeders looking to incorporate new bloodlines. Not
Commendations to Doyle, Kate, Kody and Jessica Dertell, as well as their extended families and staff, on their unfailing ability to reliably engineer a memorable day. Their hospitality is faultless, and the celebrations grow more enjoyable every year.

VICTORIAN ARABIAN CLASSIC The 43rd Victorian Arabian Classic was the second Classic for 2013, with a return to Werribee Park resulting in a change of date from January to December. Open halter was presided over by Carmelle Rooker (USA), with Luciano D’Elia, Gudrun Martini, Brian Scholes and Carolyn Potts comprising the rest of the judging panel.
A new programme format saw an increase in entries, with many top quality horses vying for Championship titles in both the led and ridden sections. The eventual Supreme Purebred Female was the exquisitely feminine RD Caprice (US), with charismatic yearling Advantage MI taking out the Supreme Purebred Entire and the scopey Balmoral MI prancing away with Supreme Purebred Gelding. Supreme Ridden Purebred was awarded to Fames Phantom MI, making it a very good weekend for the Mulawa Arabians team, and Renlim Park Tobias took out the Supreme Ridden Derivative. The show ran like clockwork under the expert guidance of the Victorian Arabian Horse Association committee and their volunteers, with wonderful weather and happy spectators contributing to the atmosphere of a very pleasant event.

New South Wales – Courtesy of Kerry Frame SIMEON SEGEV Jaco Koen of El Galal Arabians, South Africa writes: I recently had the privilege to have Simeon Segev stand at my stud for a short while. This stallion is phenomenal. He is without a doubt my favourite Arabian Stallion – not just in terms of type, but also temperament. He is such a gentle horse with a huge heart. To me, these aspects are far more important than to breed for the current show type that is required today. I thought a photo of him was worth sharing.
TOM QUILTY GOLD CUP – 50TH ANNIVERSARY THE CURTAIN RAISER NSW State Endurance Championship 14th & 15th June 2014 Del Rio Resort, Wiseman’s Ferry, NSW
The 2014 NSW State Endurance Championships mark the beginning of a year of celebration in the lead up to the 50th Anniversary of the Tom Quilty Gold Cup to be held in June 2015. The Tom Quilty Gold Cup is Australia’s National Endurance Championship. It is an iconic Australian event noted on the international calendar, attracting competitors from around the world. This year’s State Championship ‘raises the curtain’ for the 2015 celebratory Tom Quilty event. It will be run from the same ride base and over the same course, offering a once-off opportunity for competitors, volunteers and spectators to take a sneak peek at what will be offered in 2015. Find more information at www.nswerastatechampionship.com.au Or follow the events on Facebook ‘NSW State Championship – 14/15 June 2014’ and ‘Tom Quilty Gold Cup 2015’
EAGLERIDGE OPEN DAY With my four-year-old daughter Emma in tow, I arrived at Eagleridge to the welcoming atmosphere of sausages on the barbecue, ice-cold drinks in the horse trough, plenty of friendly faces, and a real buzz of anticipation for the afternoon ahead. There was a great group of attendees, everyone had favourite horses they were excitedly awaiting, and the much-anticipated Gatsby CC was the stallion on everyone’s lips.
We awaited the presentation under a shady marquee and dreamt over a beautiful catalogue of sensational horses. But of course, a catalogue, no matter how beautiful the pictures, has nothing on the real thing. With the lovely Christopher Groves on the mic, the parade of Eagleridge Arabians began, and all eyes were immediately riveted on example after example of why so many enthusiasts had turned out. Something that really stood out with myself and many of the spectators was that the beauty of the Eagleridge horses was innately combined with impressive athleticism. These horses could really move, and move they did. They trotted, posed and showed-off in perfect Arabian style, with all the flare and beauty Arabian horses should possess. There were some old favourites, some eye-catching youngsters and a few elite sales opportunities. A personal favourite of mine, Shumani ERA, was in perfect form. The former unanimous Australian Champion was just breathtaking, putting on a show for the crowd and loving every moment of his time in the spotlight.

As finales went, Gatsby CC was an impressive end to a wonderful presentation. He’d had plenty of time to work himself up with all the excitement, and this show-stopping stallion was just so full of spirit and energy he had everyone in awe. It is no wonder Jenni is so eagerly awaiting his first foals. They should, in themselves, be an excuse to attend next year’s Open Day!

It was very exciting for me to be invited to judge the Tas ARABS Ruby Anniversary All Arabian Show on the 18th and 19th January 2014. A full programme, the beautiful setting and weather made the weekend even more delightful. The halter classes were well supported in both the Derivative and Purebred sections. My winners of the top awards in both sections were true to their respective types, and had the smooth bodies, quality of skin and coat, with good length of rein and clean gullets that I was looking for. I am prepared to forgive minor flaws for the sake of overall quality and type, and the top horses did not disappoint. I am always drawn especially to horses with large, expressive eyes. I believe the eye of a horse tells you a lot about it. Both of the Supreme winners had beautiful eyes as well. The saddle horses were generally very well presented. I must congratulate the two stallions who were Supreme in their respective sections. Both were lovely saddle horses and I enjoyed judging them immensely. Lastly, I would just like to thank everybody concerned with the show for their good sportsmanship and great attitudes throughout the weekend. It was an absolute pleasure judging and meeting all of you.

Recently Mindy Nguyen showed exactly why we love our Arabian horses so much. Mindy’s endurance gelding, Pioneer Park Theatric, featured highly at her recent wedding. Likened to a little girl’s dream wedding, Theatric did not disappoint. Gary Howard (mylifeimagery. com) captured Mr T – as he is affectionately known, putting on a beautiful show of his ‘wild at heart spirit’. Apparently only minutes later Mr T was asleep in Mindy’s arms, showing just how gentle and kind hearted this Arabian gelding can be.
HORSE HOME SHOW Queensland State Equestrian Centre at Caboolture held its first annual Horse Home Show on February 8th. The event was a huge success with thousands of horse lovers enjoying the many and varied trade stalls, as well as some fantastic mini clinics and presentations on topics ranging from Hendra Virus to Dressage and Reining. One of the highlights was the Grand Finale that evening. Three beautiful Arabians and their riders featured, to showcase the versatility of the Arabian breed and its foundations and influence on other breeds. Yasmin Kam-Nuen and her lovely big boy, Arabian Warmblood, “KKS Gitterbug” (Gymnastik Star x Cherox Yasmin) , Jan Tyrell with her successful endurance Arabian gelding, “Willandra Wind Lancer” (Sakkara x Southern Cross Midnight Magic) and myself with well performed, “ Anna’s Dakota” (Boomori Kahlua x Anna’s Deeshaa). Yasmin and Gitterbug represented the show horse/dressage Arabian, myself and Dakota in Native Arabian Costume and Jan and Wind Lancer literally flying the flag for endurance – incidently the flag upset quite a few horses in the other breed displays but barely fazed our mad arabs!! These three lovely geldings did our breed proud. A number of Breed Associations and Queensland Clubs were involved in the Trade Stalls and the Queensland Crabbet Group stall was a very popular destination. With giveaways and breed information at hand, ex AHSA Board Members, Coralie Gordon and Lorraine Currie were run off their feet! The Horse Home Show was a fabulous event and with plans of extending the event to two days, it is definitely not to be missed next year. LEGACY OF LEGENDS Melanie Larsen recently attended the Buck Brannaman –Legacy of Legends – a tribute to Tom Dorens and Ray Hunt clinic. Held in Tamworth, Melanie took along three Arabians, Measure MI, Announce MI and Arabian riding pony, Jumela Park Oliver. Buck Brannaman and other world-renowned trainers, filled three days with amazing and inspirational demonstrations in front of hundreds of spectators. Melanie says that Buck’s way of being with horses is something everyone should experience. In just three mornings Measure MI was a quiet, relaxed ridden horse that was previously unbacked. Melanie’s excitement continued when David Stuart chose to ride Oliver in the daily demonstrations. She states that if you would like to get a taste for this amazing master, the movie “Buck” is a must see.
HORSES INSIDE OUT Kathy Saggers reports that Gillian Higgins of ‘Horses Inside Out’ UK is coming to Queensland and Western Australia this year. ‘Horses Inside Out’ is an educational service delivered in a fascinating and fun way. Its purpose is to show riders, trainers and therapists how, by understanding the anatomy, biomechanics and physiology of the horse, they can improve performance, maintain top physiological condition and manage horses for optimum muscular health and reduce the risk of injury. There are four clinics in Queensland, between April 7 and April 12. The final clinic is approved as a Judge and Judge Candidate workshop. This is a unique opportunity for Australian horse enthusiasts to participate in one of Gillian’s demonstrations. Please contact Kathy 0413 054 182 or Kathy@warrego.com.au
ENDURANCE Endurance Training Rides have been held recently at Blackbutt and Boonah, and despite the unrelenting heat and high humidity, both rides were well attended. A number of Arabian breeders, owners and riders were spotted, including the Krahnen family and Kerry Ellery. Representing Bremervale were Warwick Toft, Kym Dyball and show rider Veronica Mortimer. Michelle Thomas, better known for her talents in the halter ring, also rode in the Boonah ride.
Hot news in Endurance at the moment – the Western Australian-held Tom Quilty has banned horses from their event that have not been vaccinated for the Hendra Virus.
TUSCANNY NIGHTS OF JASMINE Sharyn Dorber from Tuscanny Stud in Regency Downs, reports their excitement and great anticipation for the 2014 show season with their Tuscanny Nights of Jasmine. The Quarab filly took out the Reserve Champion award at the 2013 Top of the Range Event at halter. A true credit to her breed and upbringing, Jasmine has showed little interest in the commotion of side show rides, chain saws, music etc. We look forward to hearing more about this rising star in the near future.

NEWS FROM KELARAY STUD Kelaray Stud had a fabulous start to the show season with the yearling Anglo gelding Kelaray Distinction. His first outing was the Nth Isl Premier Showing Championships where he was awarded Champion Led Youngstock and Supreme Led Horse of the show. So far this season he has won seven Championships and two Supreme Championship titles from five shows.
We have had three foals born this season and all fillies. These include the purebred filly Kelaray Exzotika (Aria Elation x Simeon Seana), Kelaray Mystique (Willowcroft Grand Mikado x Bluegrass Made in Heaven) Chestnut ARP Filly, and yet to be named bay filly (Radway Talk of the Town x Deveron Airs n Graces). Our filly out of Deveron Airs n Graces will be retained. All others are for sale. Our only Australian-born foal this season is out of the beautiful Riding Pony mare Rathowen Sepia Shadings, and sired by ConchertoFF. Kelaray Carpaccio, a bay colt to mature to a galloway, will be shown this coming season by JH Show Training and is available for purchase. Rathowen Sepia Shadings is currently being bred to the German Riding Pony stallion Trussardi, and will head to NZ when confirmed in foal. As agent for RHR Heir Of Marwan while he was in NZ during quarantine on return from the USA, we were able to arrange for “Heir” to travel to a breeding facility in NZ and allow mares to be bred to him. This was an amazing opportunity for NZ breeders, and we can’t thank Karin Panuccio enough. It will be an exciting time next foaling season, with all the “RHR Heir of Marwan” babies being born in NZ.

SALES AND EXPORT NEWS FROM DELIGHT ARAB HORSE STUD NZ At the end of August last year our good friend Peter (Presco Endurance) and his family, plus two friends from Australia, visited and stayed with us to view young horses to purchase for endurance competition. Presco Endurance has now become more involved with endurance in Australia and are major sponsors at one of the endurance rides.
Peter already has three of our horses in Malaysia – Delights Siren, Delights Tardis and Barry (all three are by Ranaarb). He really likes our riding/working proven endurance bloodlines. On this occasion they chose four geldings, Delights Tarquin, Delights Whero, Delights Orion and Delights Kedar. The horses travelled to Australia in November and are gradually settling into their new home. The oldest three are currently being broken in and we’re keeping fingers crossed they will do well with Al Jeda and Presco Stables. We’ve also recently sold a young mare, Delights Wahida (Delights Wahid x Delights Oracle) to Ursula Keenan and Chris Enstrom in Christchurch (for breeding and endurance) and a gelding, Delights Tareef (Ranaarb x Delights Silver Impulse) to Ashley Cole, Raetahi, for endurance – Tareef has already completed a few rides and shows lots of ability.
THE 22ND AUCKLAND ARABIAN SPECTACULAR A CLASS ARABIAN SHOW The 22nd Auckland Arabian Spectacular A Class Arabian show was held again this year at the beautiful Blackbridge Park in Karaka on a sunny Sunday 1st December. This year the show went back to a one day format with two Queensland panel judges, Gail Iskra and Cherie Devenish officiating, as well as NZ judge Bob Edwards overseeing our third ring with versatility classes. The show also had some endurance suitability classes on offer as a trial this year. With some notable absences from larger North Island Studs we still attracted good horse numbers. Our show focuses on bringing youth to our breed, and with a lot of new youth competitors in attendance, we feel positive about our future shows. We would like to thank our wonderful sponsors, exhibitors and hard working committee for making this show a success.

2014 SCOTTSDALE ARABIAN HORSE SHOW By Kerri Grisham
In its 59th year, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is one of the biggest and most elaborate horse shows in the world. From its humble beginnings back in 1955 with 50 horses, it now enjoys nearly 2700 Arab and half Arab entries, with people bringing horses from all over the world to compete for their share of over a million dollars in prize money. The show runs for ten full days, with Halter, Hunt, Dressage, English, Driving, Western, Reining, Jumping and Sport Horse classes, to just name a few. You don’t have to be a horse lover to enjoy the Scottsdale show; with over 100 food venders and over 300 retail venders you are bound to find something for everyone in the family to enjoy. There are daily seminars and demonstrations, fun free events for the kids, free ice cream day, and barn tours – so the general public can see behind the scenes and get to pat a horse. One of the first things to be noticed at the show is the fancy and very elaborate barn front designs that you don’t see at most other shows. The work and the money that are put into these are just mind-blowing. Out to impress, celebrity barn parties spare no expense. You will see gardens put in, grass laid, leather couches, full bars, big screen TVs, water falls, spot lighting, statues and big posters promoting the horses being shown. It’s such an impressive show all round. The classes were big this year for Halter, seeing 50 plus horses entered in the classic and futurity classes, and taking up to two to three hours to judge. Performance saw big classes of 40 or more being broken up in an A and B class for finals.

One of the highlights was watching the champion mare and stallion being presented. WOW there truly were some phenomenal horses in the ring this year, and I’m sure the judges had their hands full trying to choose. Another highlight was seeing the Australian-bred colt Kavalle MI named Unanimous 1st place in the 3 yr old colts. A huge congratulations to his new owners Joanne and Ram Gunabalan from Clarkson MI and to Mulawa Arabian Stud – well deserved win in a big class of impressive colts.

THE JOYS AND CHALLENGES OF
OWNING A SMALL
ARABIAN STUD “WE GET SO MUCH PLEASURE JUST SITTING ON OUR VERANDAH, WITH EITHER OUR MORNING COFFEE OR CUP OF TEA, OR IN THE EVENINGS WITH A NICE GLASS OF BUBBLES, JUST WATCHING OUR AMAZING ARABIANS GRAZE IN THE PASTURE WHILE FOALS FROLIC WITH EACH OTHER.” DIANNA DE-SILVA ZAMMIT “WE LOVE WALKING UP TO A PADDOCK GATE TO HAVE A GROUP OF DANCING HORSES WITH BIG BRIGHT EYES AND FLAGGED TAILS COME RACING UP TO MEET US.” BEC HOGAN “LOOKING OUT AT A PADDOCK OF CONTENT ARABIANS IS PRICELESS.” LINDA HENLEY
he pictures those comments bring to mind would surely bring a nod of the head and a wistful smile to most breeders’ faces. It was probably the image in the mind’s eye of many who first thought about breeding Arabians. But despite the joys, breeding Arabians brings with it many challenges, especially in the current market. In this article, you are invited into the lives of several small stud owners in NSW, who have generously provided a snapshot into the main challenges they face in breeding small, select numbers of Arabian horses. When asked about the main challenge of being a small breeder, Lynda Sonter of Allyndah Arabians answers, “Being noticed! It’s as simple as that. Some people think if you don’t have your horses in glossy adverts or at every show, then you are not capable of breeding quality horses. And it’s hard, because smaller breeders can’t afford the big trainers, the advertising and the cost of full-on campaigning. So they are limited with what they can do.” The majority of respondents agreed. Overall, challenges most put forward were those of time, money and reputation, with the number one issue being establishing a reputation within the industry. The general consensus is that the larger the stud, the more horses produced, and the greater the opportunity of producing that champion. In turn, this equals greater exposure and a faster-built reputation. On the issue of numbers, Karen Hodges of Ramadan Arabians states the problem as, “My stallion will only produce a small number of offspring in his lifetime,” while Kimaleen John, of Barinya Arabians comments, “Larger operations have larger numbers of progeny 38 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
to choose from when campaigning.” Further to this, Bec Hogan of New-Moon Stud adds “Being limited to a small number of breeding mares means every single foal needs to be awesome.” In fact, numbers of progeny appears to be considered by far the greatest stumbling block to quickly establishing that all-important reputation. Linda Henley of Wootton Arabian Stud writes: “When first starting out there is none of the preconceived credibility that larger or more long-term studs already have. It takes quite a long time to build a name or reputation.” And Jennifer Hawkins of Shahwanpark Arabians agrees. “As a small breeder it takes many years to get the same amount of stock out there promoting your stud, as it does the bigger breeders to produce in one season.” Dianna De-Silva Zammit of Rothbury Park Arabians however, points out that it’s not only about numbers bred, but by careful consideration into what is bred. “At the end of the day a good horse is a good horse.” Kimaleen John agrees. “A beautiful horse is a beautiful horse regardless of who breeds her and what photo one sees. Is she beautiful in the paddock or only in a made up photo? This is something that applies to small and large studs.” While many breeders interviewed see the value in what many of the large studs bring to the industry in terms of imports, new bloodlines, and increasing the reputation of Australian horses in the global market, the downside is the high number of horses in the market at prices smaller operators can’t compete with. Lisa Smith of Foxridge Farm writes: “Competing for market share and show ring results is difficult, as is getting people out to the farm,” while Dianna De-Silva Zammit replies that she “finds it very difficult being a small
breeder in this market, due to the larger studs being able to discount sale horses at prices that barely meet the service fee, just to move them on.” Time constraints and general workload issues are also a constant struggle for many. Kimaleen John writes: “Being a hands-on breeder with a career as a doctor makes things very difficult,” while Dianna De-Silva Zammit suggests that, “While the larger studs perhaps have a better footing regarding staff, time, facilities and equipment, we can still work horses at the same level (time prevailing!), though of course, when you can afford someone to do the work for you, life is a little easier.” Bec Hogan adds, “As a small breeder we do not have staff, and so need to be able to undertake a wide range of facets of horse care and management, as well as paddock and farm management. There are no days off!” And while it can be difficult to compete in some respects with larger studs, in others, some don’t consider it a ‘competition’ at all. Linda Henley states, “I’ve never considered myself in competition with other breeders. I would rather collaborate with other Crabbet breeders to preserve and promote our horses. I get referrals from other breeders and refer to others as well. I don’t think competing against each other is good for the horses or market. We need to open the market, not focus inwards on each other.” Kimaleen John states, “A consistent, smaller stud is more enticing to me as a breeder because they have obviously chosen lines well,” and Jennifer Hawkins believes small studs provide something unique. “I don’t really see it as a competition. I am a great believer in the part that early handling plays in a horse’s future. As a small breeder it is possible for us to manage all the handling and training ourselves.” And of course, finally, many issues are the same for small and large breeders alike. Amanda Riordan of Jindalla Park Stud claims, “We are no different when it comes to producing quality stock. The same rules apply: to research your bloodlines, only use quality breeding stock, and always consider form and function. Linda Henley adds, “I don’t believe the breeding challenges change whether you are a small or large breeder. We all have losses, natural events to deal with, a flat market, and we all have genetic conditions to manage.”

Ramadan Arabians, North Tumbulgum
Allyndah Arabians, Tyndale Nth
Wootton Arabian Stud, Wootton Valley
Ramadan Arabians started 35 years ago with Tristram Purette as my foundation mare. T. Purette’s daughter Ramadan Arabian Kadin continued breeding for me after her dam had died. She produced some lovely offspring to my wonderful, Mulawa bred stallion, Makers Mark (Fame Maker x Karmaa). One of R.A. Kadin’s most outstanding daughters is Ramadan Dream Maker, always shining in the show ring in both halter and under saddle. Her sire, Makers Mark has been a jewel in the Ramadan crown. His successes included winning the Queen Elizabeth Trophy for supreme exhibit of Tweed Valley show. This award had not been won by an Arabian for over thirty years. He won several Supreme Exhibits of shows and at the North Coast National he was awarded Supreme Led Arabian and Supreme Ridden Arabian. It was announced that this had never before happened in the hundred year history of the show.
Allyndah Arabians was founded in 1987 by Allan and Lynda Sonter, with the purchase of our first registered purebred Arabian, a young colt named Vega (Bremervale Viking x Bremervale Nastassia). Vega is a multi-Supreme Champion stallion at Halter, and all-round riding horse whether it be in pleasure, cattle work, dressage or endurance. We then purchased the purebred colt Tristram Masa (Ragnar x Tristram Nejma). We started out with purebred Arabians of Crabbet, Spanish, and Polish lines, and over the years we have changed our bloodlines to venture into a small Straight Egyptian breeding program of The Minstril breeding, and the bloodlines of True Colours via his Straight Egyptian son, True Vision in Qld. Our most noted daughter of True Vision is Australian Champion Top 5 Filly, Allyndah Truly Exquisite. We also have an amazing young Straight Egyptian colt by True Vision named Allyndah True Desire. Of our mares, Jaytee Exquisite has proven to be the backbone of our SE breeding program, as her daughters have proven to be exceptional mares themselves of such beauty and Arabian type. Recently, we have ventured into a high percentage coloured Arabians breeding program with the purchase of the cremello stallion, The Phantom Of Sierra (Odyssey White Tiger x Roseglen Sadeika) who is 90.6% Arabian, and very beautiful in every way. Phantom has been bred to a majority of our mares for 2014 coloured foals. Our first high percentage coloured foal was born in February 2014 with our SE mare, Allyndah Truly Exquisite foaling a beautiful palomino filly foal by Odyssey White Tiger. This gorgeous filly is 93.75% Arabian and very impressive!
My Arabian addiction started in 1996, when my endurance mentor, Paul Grieves, recommended I buy a pure Crabbet Arabian for endurance. Rebroff Moonshadow (Majestic Light x Abbedejar Majestikhan) changed my life. Our wonderful partnership is what spurred my desire to breed Crabbet Arabians.
I have always believed that the meld was the best way to achieve excellence in the breed. Makers Mark is a blend of Spanish and Polish blood. My mares carry some Egyptian lines and there is a splash of Crabbet there too. Photo: Ramadan Isis (Heir of Marwan) and Ramadan Markita (Makers Mark)

My three-year-old pure Crabbet colt, Wootton Charismatic (Wootton Flamboyant x Wootton Charisma), has served his first mares this season. We also have seven pure Crabbet mares, four fillies, as well as last season’s lovely little grey by Fenwick Silver Prince out of Al Tsahir Odessa, and three riding geldings. My first youngsters have only just started getting out and about – a young colt bred here, Jamahl (Boomori Finale x Fenwick Vision), went down to Fenwick Stud in VIC last year and has covered his first mares this season. Another colt, Wootton Royal Decree (W.Flamboyant x F.Rubicelle) is standing at stud at Tanilba Stud in WA. Wootton Audacious (Rishahl FA x Al Tsahir Aurora) is starting his endurance career in QLD and Wootton Allegra has just been sold to an endurance and breeding program in NSW. The horses do led, trails, lessons, endurance, pony club, and even some mustering. W.Flamboyant was shown in halter and then trained in dressage before commencing his endurance training. I breed good riding horses with great temperaments. Photo: Linda and Wootton Flamboyant

Arabian Dreams, Halfway Creek
Since I was a school student, I dreamt of owning an Arabian to do endurance on. During my first year studying Medicine at UNSW, I bought my first Arabian: sixmonth-old Naibara Park Kareen. Kareen put up with me being an inexperienced horse person and grew up to be a totally well-balanced mare who today at 28 years old is happily teaching my boyfriend to ride and muster cattle. Kareen’s first foal was by Arjai Summitt and her last was by his half brother, Barinya Stardust Ibn Merlin. Newbridge Nasuri and Belbowrie Merlin were the next two horses I purchased, both by Wenceslas (imp UK).
In 2004, our first foal was born under a new moon. She was the daughter of a fabulous Arabian mare who had excelled in many disciplines, and epitomised the fun and versatility of an Arabian riding horse. From that time, with a focus on endurance, we aspired to breed athletes with height, strength and steady temperaments, with the famed Arabian athleticism, stamina and expression.
The Arabian horse has been a lifelong passion, and in 1990 I began breeding, living my dream. Arabian Dreams is a family concern. My husband Shane was previously thoroughbred racing entrenched, and his conversion to Arabian horses has been a wonderful gain both on the ground and for discerning future breeding prospects. Our youngest daughter Aiesha shares my love and passion, showing a keen eye for type and an enthusiastic approach to the goals of Arabian Dreams. Our 20 acre farm adjoins State Forest where Australian Brumbies roam free. There are endless trails for riding, leading to one of Australia’s many pristine beaches. I am truly blessed.
My horses carry a mixture of bloodlines: Colonial, Egyptian, Russian, Polish and English. There is my small group of Colonials – the two stallions, Killibinbin Persian Gold and his son Barinya Persian Afyre, and four Colonial mares. Then there is the Straight Egyptian stallion, Rashir and the eye-catching chestnut stallion Barinya Prince Hans by Aadique, who is only standing at stud until he is sold. My special friend not at public stud is B. Stardust, who combines the lines of two horses who have gone to greener pastures, and were much loved: Belbowrie Merlin and Arjai Tammie. My resident stallions have been chosen on type and temperament and to blend with each other’s offspring. My mares are descendants of Ralvon Pilgrim through Merlin, VP Temptrest and Tammie. Damirah through Simeon Shiran; Arjai Tamia; Oasis Desert Song through B Valeen; Saracin imp UK through daughter of N.Nasuri, Anaza Bey Shah through S. Shiran, AP Klass and Montshan; Orlando (imp Germ) and Wenceslas through Merlin and Nasuri.
We discovered the Shagya-Araber in 2009. They are a light cavalry horse bred by the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the 18th century. These horses were the embodiment of our breeding goal, developed with the military budget of an Empire, and refined over centuries. Today, New-Moon is Australia’s first ShagyaAraber stud. We proudly own the only three Shagya-Araber mares in Australia. Two are broodmares (Laila and Medina), and the third, Zariah, is a six-year-old recently started under saddle and about to commence her endurance career. All three mares have recently been listed in Studbook 1 of the German Trakehner Verband, as foundation mares for producing purebred Trakehners. The stud also owns three purebred Arabian mares that have been inspected by licensed International Shagya-Araber classifiers, and approved for ShagyaAraber breeding. These purebred mares combine Crabbet, Egyptian and Russian bloodlines. Imported Shagya-Araber semen is used for breeding, from highly awarded ShagyaAraber stallions standing in the USA, Germany and Austria. New-Moon Stud intends to establish a ‘semen bank’ in Australia to make this semen more readily available to other Australian breeders. Photo: New-Moon Stud
The creed of Arabian Dreams is ‘Quality not Quantity’ which places great focus and stringent plans on our breeding program, ensuring we stay on path! Based on Spanish/Egyptian and Russian bloodlines, all of our current stock has been bred by us. The foundation of our breeding program is the beloved mare Fairview Amira Enshallah (dec) (Amir El Shaklan x Esperanza) and her infamous bloodlines are present in each horse. Enshallah’s last gift and legacy is T’iamo, her lookalike son; a striking liver chestnut, sired by Ajman Moniscione. We plan to retain this up and coming star for stud purposes. The matriarch of Arabian Dreams is Nemesis (Padrons Psyche x Enshallah). She is one of four Padrons Psyche daughters we have bred and the only one retained, with her full sister Euphoria having been exported to Dubai. Nemesis is currently in foal for what we hope will be her first filly. One of the most exotic and beautiful horses we have bred is Nemesis’s two-year-old son Saggio sired by Ajman Moniscione. Adding to our collection the beautiful mare Vixen (TR Viktor x Enshallah) together with her daughters, Viktress (Ajman Moniscione) and her 2013 foal sired by MF Aryan El Thessa, these form our group of horses.

Rothbury Park Arabians & Warmbloods, Colo Valley
Rothbury Park is a boutique stud that consists of purebred Arabians, Arabian Warmbloods and Warmbloods. The stud was started about 35 years ago, with one Anglo Arabian mare. Since that time, it has grown into something we are very happy with. Originally it was run by myself, until ten years ago when I met my husband Charles. We breed selectively, producing one to two foals per year. We also lease mares to clients, which works very well for us and for them, as we have done all the ground work as far as breeding is concerned. Rothbury Park is a mixture of bloodlines eg: Polish, Crabbet, Egyptian Crosses. At the end of the day, a purebred is a purebred; the title is merely where the horse originated. Our head stallion Sobek (Asfour x Hart’s on Fire) is already an International Sire, and we intend on using our rising three-year-old Mentor (Khalipha Al Saba x El Arab Muzic) for this coming season.

Shahwanpark Arabians, Tamworth
Foxridge Farm, Coffs Harbour
Shahwanpark was developed over 30 years ago in central Victoria before expanding and settling in NSW in 2007. Our highly decorated pure Crabbet performance stallion Fenwick Panache was pivotal, not only in the stud’s progress, but also as a great ambassador for the Arabian breed, making many public appearances. Our focus shifted from high percentage Crabbet Arabians and derivatives in the infant years, to pure Crabbet breeding in the mid 80s which continues on today.
We started our stud with a small group of pure Polish bred mares from Lillaine Gedye. I had always loved the Bask son, The General, so when I went looking for mares, the first was a filly grand-daughter. We also purchased daughters of Mexi (imp Den) and Ambition (imp USA). Over the years we added a couple more lines as they became available.
Throughout the stud’s existence its focus has been to produce beautiful saddle horses that have substance, great movement, a good mind, along with the grace and beauty of a quality Arabian. The stud comprises 35-40 pure Crabbet Arabians with two stallions standing at stud, one of which we imported from the UK. Chilled semen is also available. Both stallions are young with their oldest progeny just now being started under saddle. Our achievements over the years have been predominantly in the performance world, both open and Arabian, including Barastoc Arabian Horse of the Year, saddle stallion wins at Melbourne Royal Show and Australian Top 10 dressage horse to name just a few.

I had always wanted a Polish bred daughter of Gazal Al Shaqab, and while in Poland we had the opportunity to purchase Funkia, a Gazal daughter in foal to Ekstern. Funkia was my birthday present from my wonderful husband, and is currently in foal to Pogrom. Late last year we purchased a stunning young daughter of Eryks, a Gazal Al Shaqab son, Elomina who will come out to Australia in foal to Equator later in the year. We also purchased a pure Polish bred son of Emigrant, Extravagance VO, who is out of a Pesal daughter. We have our core group of mares down to six, although some of the others are still here and for sale. All are pure Polish lines. We have two colts at the moment, Extravagance VO and Titanium FX (Ekstern x Funkia). Some of the successful show horses we have bred include Cruise Control, Moving Violation, The Katalyst, Porn Star and Stripperella. Under saddle and endurance we have Shahh, Egotist and Fanatyk.

Jindalla Park Stud was established in 1994, and relocated to the Hunter Valley in 2002. Since this time both Peter and Amanda have concentrated on producing a small number of quality and commercial stock. We have been extremely humbled by our success over the past 15 years achieving outstanding results at every level including Royals, Australian, East Coast, National Championships and State Titles with our Arabian derivatives, Arabian Stock Horses and Australian Stock Horses. The stud motto “Breeding Horses to Work and Perform” is exactly that. Our horses are competing in Breed Classes, Open Hack, Dressage, Showjumping, Working Classes and Team Penning. We currently have eight mares with 6%-50% Crabbet/Egyptian Arabian bloodlines cross Australian Stock Horse, and two Heritage Bred Australian Stock Horse mares. Standing at Stud: Whitsunday Akram (Whitsunday Abitta (By Ralvon Witness) x Ralvon Gazelle (By Ralvon Pilgrim)).

MAGNUM MAGNUM FORTY FOUR (IMP USA) x SAHTARAH BRED BY SHANE EDWARD ARABIANS OWNED BY SHANE EDWARD ARABIANS & MULAWA ARABIANS
By Kay & Philip Edward
hen it came time to find a stallion to breed to Shane’s mare, Sahtarah (Sahjat x Dantarah), we chose Magnum Forty Four. We love his bloodlines. Magnum Psyche has always been a favourite and his dam, WH Nashahna, is sired by the great Bey Shah. As well as his breeding, we liked Magnum Forty Four’s type and attitude and his beautiful eyes, and we believed his length of rein would complement Sahtarah’s neck set. It turned out to be the right decision. The resulting foal was Mustang’s Magnum, and she was one of those foals that just took your breath away with her elegance and beauty. 46 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
And she was our miracle foal. Her birth was dramatic, and it was fully believed that we would have to lose either her or her dam. After a long struggle with three vets and Phil and myself, all trying to get her out with chains and hooks, the vets finally made the difficult decision to cut her out. Fortunately, Sahtarah must have sensed something dreadful was about to happen to her foal, and with one final, monumental effort, Mustang’s Magnum or ‘Maggie’ as she was to be known, was born. Assuming the filly was dead, the vets rushed to Sahtarah’s aid, suspecting she would haemorrhage. At the same moment
I noticed Maggie blink and called out “The foal’s alive!” She gave a whinny and to all our amazement, started trying to get up. The vets, by then knowing Sahtarah was alright, turned their attention to Maggie, concerned that they had broken her legs during the horrendous birth. Miraculously, Sahtarah and Maggie both survived unscathed, apart from a very small mark on Maggie’s lower eyelid where the hooks had been inserted to the eye sockets to try to turn her head – which to this day still twinges when she is in a bad mood! Maggie was born a beauty and remains that way. Phil and I wanted her to be shown but also wanted to remain in her life as part owners, and especially for her to be shown in the name of Shane Edward Arabians. We knew the best place in Australia for her to reside and be shown would be at Mulawa Arabians. Phil rang Greg Farrell many times, but with Greg being busy, it wasn’t until Maggie was

weaned that he was able to come and see her. However, within two days of that visit, Maggie was living at Mulawa and a very successful partnership began between Shane Edward Arabians and Mulawa Arabians. Mustang’s Magnum’s show career started with the National Stud Show, followed by the East Coast Championships, then the Australian Championships. Maggie was Champion Yearling Filly at all three of these shows – the first ever purebred Arabian to achieve this in one season. To see Shane’s name in the catalogue and winners’ results
was a dream come true. We know Shane must have been looking over Maggie from her very first breath. Since the days of her illustrious show career, Maggie has proved to be one of Australia’s most successful dams. To date she has had six foals, for six multi A class champions. Her first foal Fames Phantom MI, by Fame Maker, injured his face as a foal and wasn’t shown until he was under saddle, and with great success – at his first East Coast Championships he won the illustrious East Coast Cup.
Klassical Dream MI, by Klass, is one of Australia’s current favourite Arabian females, winning Australian Champion 2 & 3yo Filly and being the highest point purebred at the show. She is also a dual East Coast Champion, National Stud Show Champion and the current Reserve Australian Champion Mare. Dream’s beautiful full sister is MI Klassic Fantasy, and both are world class in the opinion of many overseas breeders and trainers. At the 2012 East Coast Championships, MI Klassic Fantasy, and another of Maggie’s progeny, Maximilliano, a big-moving bay colt with exceptional show ring presence who was sired by Guiliano, were awarded Champion Yearling Filly and Colt. MI Klassic Fantasy is also a Reserve Australian Champion, while Maximilliano was an Australian Champion Yearling Colt (both international judges stated he was the stand out of the class). His full brother Maximise MI is also a beautiful bay colt. As a yearling he was National Stud Show Champion Colt and Reserve Australian Champion Yearling Colt. Majesta MI, also by Guiliano, won the Sires Sweepstakes at her first show and with limited showing has been an Australian Championship finalist. Maggie’s latest foal is an exciting colt by the amazing World Champion sire Marwan Al Shaqab, and we are looking forward to the future of this very special boy. Maggie is enjoying living a life of leisure at Mulawa’s stud at Aberdeen. At this time there are no plans of returning her to showing, as Greg’s opinion is that she has nothing more to prove and her progeny are excelling beyond all expectations.

LA CHALLERINA DREAMS CAN COME TRUE WITH BELOVED ARABIANS, EVEN FOR SMALL BREEDERS.
By Dell Jackson
Thomas and handled by Benjamin Bogart, and, in her usual style, won her class, and Champion Mare. With an intimidating line up she went in for Supreme, and when her number was called, we were totally overwhelmed with pride. We’d won our first Supreme. Dreams can come true with beloved Arabians, even for small breeders.
La Challerina has now been confirmed in foal to the wonderful stallion Khareem al Saba. This foal will be born in late 2014 and it is time for Challerina to rest, and just be the beauty we know she is. We love her very much. She is our treasured show queen, and a wonderful example of an Arabian show horse. ▮
n the 15th December 2008, a little chestnut filly was born. Her sire was Magnum el Chall, and her dam was our adored Evanescence, the daughter of our beloved mare Remarni Park Inspiration. Because she danced around like a ballerina, we named her La Challerina. Challerina was sent to Chelleason Arabians as a weanling and prepared under the guidance of Michelle Thomas. It was decided her first show would be The Arabian Gala Show, under international judge Glenn Jacobs. Against a line up of some outstanding fillies, Challerina won her class before going up against the two and three year old fillies in the champion class. We were delighted when she was chosen as Champion Filly at her first show. Her next show was the Top of the Range in Toowoomba. Michelle Thomas again showed her beautifully and again she won – this time against a large class of 15 fillies. She followed this up by yet again beating the older fillies for Champion. This win was quickly followed by a very exciting Reserve Champion Filly title at the East Coast Championships. Challerina was succeeding beyond our expectations.
LA CHALLERINA BACK AT THE ARABIAN GALA SHOW IN 2013
Following her success, Challerina was given a break from the show ring to grow and mature. As a young mare, the decision was made to breed her, and we chose the stallion Charming VC, owned by Yvonne Barlow. This turned out to be a wonderful choice, resulting in the lovely chestnut filly, Chardonnay. Before too long Chardonnay was weaned and it was time to bring Challerina back into the show ring. With Michelle Thomas once more in charge of her training, she went to The Arabian Gala Show, this time under international judge Terry Holmes. Handled by Benjamin Bogart, she won her broodmare class, then went on to win Champion Mare against a top line up of mares – all at her first show in several years. Just as she had as a yearling, Challerina then went on to the Top of the Range show. She was again shown by Michelle

WH JUSTICE ACRYLIC WITH KIND PERMISSION FROM JENNI OGDEN
Marian has always loved horses and art. As a child she would sit under trees and draw the neighbour’s horses and brush them with an old hair brush and dream of owning one – almost every little girl’s dream. “I still have some of those paintings and drawings. I saw my first Arabian in The Land newspaper and was instantly attracted. When I was older I saw my first real ones at an Arab Horse Show in Orange NSW. I was totally hooked.” Maryde: Through your words and paintings, I can see your love of horses and art have combined to form a beautiful partnership. You’ve truly captured the magic of movement. Marian: I have studied and painted horses my whole life. Every little detail, the way they move, react, their body language, and power. I am always researching the traditional headstalls and saddles, their heritage and environment. I’ve learned to paint life, movement, light and colour and I am still learning. I paint many subjects including life drawing, portraits, landscapes, and contemporary works. I’m always pleased to do portraits and special requests in any medium. Maryde: What is it about this particular breed of horse that stirs the artist in you?
Marian: The beauty and quality of the Arabian horse to me has no equal. They have large dark intelligent eyes, with beautiful sculptured faces, large fine nostrils and soft velvet muzzles. Their curved ears, smooth elegant necks and fine manes and tails accentuate the soft silken coat that defines their sleek muscles. They have a compact, balanced body with movement like no other, and the beauty to lift your senses and take your breath away – the very essence of an Arabian horse. THIS is what I try to capture in my paintings.
each layer of paint, then I start working
Maryde: And you do it exceptionally well. I find people are always fascinated about how a piece of artwork comes together. Can you share a bit of your process with us?
commissioned works, I use one or more
Marian: I draw from my imagination or using photos. Drawing for me is very important, the bones of a painting, putting down the idea, trying to get the conformation correct, continually studying it. I wake up the next day with fresh eyes to correct any mistakes, and this can take two days or two weeks, depending on the work. I think I become obsessive with it. I study a work from the start until it’s finished. When I am happy with the drawing I paint the background first, working from the distance to the foreground, building up
on the subject, again building up layers and detail, working on life, form and movement. The thing I love most is near the finish – the fine details, completing the very fine strands of hair with very fine brushes. The time taken to complete an artwork can be two weeks or over three months (oils take longer hence they are higher priced). I have had the opportunity to paint some amazingly beautiful horses over the years. There are occasions when travelling is involved, but for most photos and always with the photographer’s permission. For Marian, painting has been a lifetime journey of learning and changing. She is constantly amazed how the love of Arabian horses has brought so many people together from writing, photography and art to breeding, riding etc. She has made some wonderful lasting friendships through her love of Arabian horses. Marian has some limited edition prints and gift cards available.

SHOW RING TO
NEXT TIME YOU WATCH A HALTER CLASS, ASK YOURSELF, ‘WOULD I LIKE TO RIDE THAT HORSE FOR MILE AFTER MILE AT A TROT/CANTER?’ YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED AT HOW THIS ALTERS YOUR VIEW OF A HORSE.
By Helen Rutland
ot everyone can afford a horse for this and a horse for that, and many of us would like to think we can turn our precious ‘only child’ to more than one discipline. We are fortunate in that Arabians are generally more than versatile enough that the Royal show hack can turn their hooves to a weekend pony club rally, or that the endurance horse
can turn out a decent dressage test without too much bother. After all, it’s been proven time and time again. But what about from halter champion to endurance... and back again? What about all that whispered speculation that halter horses and endurance horses are simply ‘built different,’ one for beauty, one for function?
Of course you can. And some breeders have repeatedly produced horses that prove this. So how do you do it? A good way is by looking at the journey of someone who’s been there, through that. Someone that’s willing to give advice and assistance. One such breeder is Helen Rutland.
Can you have a champion halter horse with the form and function to win at endurance?
A brief history...
VP SAKIM – RESERVE CHAMPION AT THE EAST COAST 2009
My journey with Arabians started with the purchase of Oasis Desert Song. Arabians then, were extremely expensive, with purebred horses rarely being seen in the endurance field. Oasis Desert Song transpired to be an elite endurance horse, more by good luck than any understanding of his bloodlines on my part at the time. Desert was an extremely correct Arabian, who, although he commenced his halter career after his endurance career, also proved to be a prepotent sire who passed his outstanding heart rates, soundness and courage onto his progeny. Following his retirement from endurance, it was decided that he should pursue a show career in the halter ring. As he had in endurance, ‘Desert’ performed well in this arena, with numerous Champions to his credit, as well as a win and 2nd to the very beautiful Nile at the National Stud Show. Many times, during his halter career, the comment was made, ‘he’s not bad for an endurance horse, is he?’ Back then, shows held little resemblance to the halter ring of today. Horses tended to be assessed as breeding stock, and good legs were certainly a requirement for high placings – off set cannons, tied in knees and club feet didn’t get a look in. The heads may not have been as exotic as today, but the horses were certainly functional, and some were extremely beautiful. Floating, light, correct movement was rewarded, and the classes were large and very

competitive. We also didn’t condition horses then, no neck sweats, just ‘fat’ in the right places to try to cover any faults, and a pose that allowed the horse to stand alert, without altering its conformation markedly. Valinor Park’s motto, ‘Beauty that Endures’ was adopted when it was decided to show our young horses at halter before they then were broken in to begin their endurance life. It was felt that the horses bred by the stud had to adhere as closely to the Standard of Excellence as possible, and the best way to do that was to show them in halter. It also had the added bonus of getting them out and around, used to strange environments, and being travelled, so that by the time they started their endurance competition, everything was ‘old hat’ to them.

Since that time, Helen has turned out an impressive number of highly successful halter and endurance horses. Take a look at a small selection of VP horses: VP Vega – National Stud winner at Halter and under Saddle, and successful in Endurance, together with his half brother, VP Legend, an A Class Champion and successful in 80km, 120km and Shahzada. VP Justice – National Stud show winner, multi A grade Champion, and 1st Junior at Shahzada, as well as other rides. Justice returned to showing after he finished his endurance career, again as a multi champion. VP Nickolai – East Coast Supreme Arabian Warmblood, 2nd FEI **, now in UAE. VP Sakim – Reserve Champion East Coast, 5/5 successful endurance rides, 3rd Middleweight at last 80km ride. VP Gucci – East Coast Halter Champion, now sold to UAE for endurance. VP Ghazal – three times Top 10 Australian Champion Colt, twice Top 5 East Coast Champion, Supreme A Exhibit, plus other Champions – successfully completed first 80km ride with good recoveries, and currently standing at Sheik Mohammed’s Gherulla stables. Here’s what Helen has to say on the subject of halter to the show ring... and back again. While the tide has turned in recent years, with better prices being commanded for endurance horses in the Middle East market, traditionally endurance has, for many Arabian breeders, been seen as ‘the poor cousin’ of the halter ring. It has been looked down on by some owners, and there are breeders who will often try to offload their less-than-pretty halter pretenders as endurance horses, sometimes citing ‘endurance breeding’ which is totally unproven. However, it must be borne in mind that it is just as challenging to produce an elite endurance horse as it is to produce a top halter champion – possibly more so, since it will take at least seven years before you know if your
OASIS DESERT SONG WORKING OUT FOR FITTEST HORSE, QUILTY 1982
horse has the potential to be elite in the tough environment of endurance. What also needs to be borne in mind is that the characteristics which make an ‘Arabian an Arabian’ are equally the same whether it be in the halter ring or endurance/performance arenas – probably even more so in endurance. For those who haven’t been there, visit Shahzada or the Tom Quilty and look at the horses there – then imagine what they would look like in show condition – you might be surprised! We must remember, these horses were war horses, and forged in the toughest of environments – lose these characteristics, and we lose what makes an Arabian so special. Soundness, clean bone, straight legs, short cannons, and good feet are critical in an endurance horse. Clean throat latches for ease of breath when running hard are crucial – no need to neck sweat an endurance horse. Flexible nostrils for ease of breath, good eyes and neck set correctly onto the head, and coming out of the shoulder are all features that should be found in both good endurance and
halter horses. Fine skin and high tail carriage help heat loss, and lightness of gait allow miles to be covered effortlessly. Next time you watch a halter class, ask yourself, ‘would I like to ride that horse for mile after mile at a trot/canter?’ You would be surprised at how this alters your view of a horse. Intelligence and even temperament are also necessary – we need bravery in our endurance horses, especially with some of the terrain we ask them to cover at some rides. The only thing I believe a purebred endurance horse could be forgiven is a little plainness in the head, everything else should conform to the Standard of Excellence. All things being equal, a good Arabian who adheres to the Standard of Excellence should be equally at home in either a halter class or on the endurance field. I have no doubt that many of our champions at halter could readily compete at 80km rides or longer, always provided of course that they have good legs and feet, and the right heart rates, and courage to go with it. ▮ THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS 57

magine the fun of camping out with your horse whilst travelling the expanse of the Eyre Highway to Western Australia. Allow extra time to enjoy the whales, cliffs, caves and the diverse landscape which is WA. This is big sky country with the billiard table flat Nullarbor ahead and the adventure of the Quilty to come. On the 3rd, 4th and 5th of October this year WA will play host to the Tom Quilty Gold Cup Endurance Ride. It will be the fifth occasion WA has hosted this iconic event since the ride began rotating around the states in 1986. This gave endurance riders in each state the chance to compete in their home state and not have to travel such long distances. Like many horse disciplines endurance riding has its origins in the army. The endurance capacity of cavalry mounts was tested in the early 1920s over a distance of 300 miles and two of these tests were won by the Arabian stallion Shahzada [Mootrub x Ruth Kesia]. After his exportation to
58 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
Australia in 1925, he was champion at the Sydney Easter Royal Show for eight successive years. He appears in the pedigree of many of today’s top endurance horses. Fast forward to 1966 and the Tom Quilty ride. Tales of Tom’s horsemanship were legendary; he would boast of how quickly he could ride from Euroka, the family station, to Cloncurry, a distance of 162km, just to post a telegram. This brought a challenge from R.M. Williams and Tom’s feat gave rise to a 100 mile ride being named after him. This year the Quilty will be held in the heart of the Great Southern at the town of Wagin. The town was settled in the 1880s and is located 228km south east of Perth, comprising a population of 1,900. Wagin is well serviced with many amenities. Sport and recreation play an important part in the Wagin community. The ride base will be at the Wagin sportsground, adjacent to town, which offers first class facilities with ample room for camping and good

provision for vetting and strapping. Every March, at this same venue, 19,500 people attend the Wagin Woolorama over two days to showcase rural WA. This is one of the state’s largest agricultural shows. The Shire of Wagin, with its community based volunteers, is rallying to the cause. The townsfolk are very excited about hosting this year’s event. The Quilty committee is planning a weeklong funfilled time featuring lots of entertainment throughout the Quilty week. It is expected well over 100 riders will compete including those from interstate along with some international entries. The course will provide varying terrain with the elements proving unpredictable as with any ride held over 24 hours. Every endurance rider from the East should make this trip once in their endurance lifetime. We cordially invite you to join us in the magical tradition of the Quilty, in the wonderful state of Western Australia. ▮

HISTORIC FIRST FOR THE GOLD COAST TURF CLUB
.. I’M SURE EVERY ARABIAN FAN SWELLED WITH PRIDE AT OUR BREED’S WONDERFUL TEMPERAMENT AND ATHLETICISM.
By Virginia Dodson
istory was made when a crowd of 4,500, including many Arabian enthusiasts, gathered at the Gold Coast Turf Club for the first Arabian races to be run at this magnificent track. The occasion was the Summer Surf Sprint Day which is a great family fun day including numerous running races for two legged athletes, and of course the inaugural Shadwell Arabian Plate and the UAE Arabian Plate. As the first of the gleaming, fit Arabians entered the mounting enclosure, the race caller gave a brief resumé of the runners and the history of the Arabian breed. The majority of the horses were having their first start but all were impeccably behaved and
loaded into the barriers like professionals – I’m sure every Arabian fan swelled with pride at our breed’s wonderful temperament and athleticism. The first race was the Shadwell Arabian Plate over 1,400 metres and was won by the lovely bay mare Coolinda Park Dance With Me with Conderosa Millenium Silver hot on her heels coming second by a length. River Oak Moccona was third by 4½ lengths followed by the well performed Warrawee Naaziq in fourth place. The second race was the UAE Arabian Plate, also over 1,400 metres, again an exciting finish, with Mulawa Stud’s statuesque grey mare Alchimia taking the honours from the fast finishing Ausden Prince Mahal with a margin of 1¾ lengths. Moondarra Maya was a close third with Jill Colwell’s Aloha Desert Jewel a scant long head behind to take fourth place. Both these races carried the very generous prize money of $25,000. Without the continuing support and extraordinary generosity of His Highness
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Shadwell Australasia these races would not be possible. NARA was delighted to have the pleasure of the company of His Excellency Mirza Al Sayegh and Mr Masoud Saleh who travelled with a delegation from Dubai to officiate at the races. We were also happy once again to welcome Mr Mark Kelly of Shadwell Australasia and Mr Chris Kennard of Shadwell UK. All of these gentlemen have worked hard to ensure the success of the Shadwell events in Australia and we look forward to a continued close association. Mr Faisal Al Mazrouei headed a party from the UAE Embassy in Canberra and presented the trophy for the second race. Dr Harry Cooper and Myer Fashions on the Field Ambassador Rebecca Bramich were among the many guests present at the luncheon which also included Federal and State politicians, media representatives and local and interstate business people. Anthony Mountney and Dani Walker, trainer and jockey of both winners, were jubilant and are to be congratulated for making the long trip from NSW. It was certainly worth the effort and I bet there was some celebrating that night! Congratulations must also go to the members of the Queensland Arabian Racing Association for gathering together such a quality field of well presented athletes. Many thanks also to the connections of the interstate horses who travelled from the ACT, Victoria and NSW to make the day such a resounding success. The committee and staff of the Gold Coast Turf Club must be commended for making the Arabians and their connections feel so welcome. The Cultural Marquee proved a popular meeting place with delicious Middle Eastern food supplied by Taboon Restaurant at Robina and the two ladies who provided henna tattoos did a steady trade during the day. The generous gifts supplied by Shadwell were also very well received by patrons.

RABBIT AT THE SHADWELL RACE DAY
RABBIT DURING THE RED RANGE ENDURANCE EVENT
RUN RABBIT, RUN By Kimi Windsong
usden Prince Mahal (Ausden Picasso x Mahalee), aka ‘Rabbit’, is a perfect example of the versatility that the Arabian horse possesses – with careful and dedicated training that is. This little bay horse has been a successful endurance horse, carrying many different and young riders over a five year career. His friend and trainer Jay Randle, whom operates the Splendacrest Endurance Training facility near Toowoomba, sensed that Rabbit could run and so took him along to an official barrier trial that was conducted at Beaudesert, under the authority and regulations of NARA. Rabbit seemed a natural. Jay had planned for Rabbit’s fitness to peak after he had completed the 160km distance event at Red Range, thereby being ready for the Arabian Races that were scheduled for the 7th December. The experienced international rider Samantha Yates was engaged to ride Rabbit over the undulating course on the New England Tablelands in near perfect endurance riding conditions.
With the cooler temperatures and rainy start at 2am on Saturday 23rd November, the 160km course was completed in a riding time of 10:26 and Rabbit was still on track for the UAE Plate in two weeks’ time. A perfect sunny spring day emerged for Race Day; and the Gold Coast Turf Club had a two card event seeing nine purebred Arabian horses contest the Shadwell Arabian Plate and then eight more Arabian horses contest the UAE Arabian Plate. Both races were over 1400 metres and were for purebred Arabians over three years of age. Horses came from Victoria, Canberra, New South Wales, Queensland, and Far North Queensland, all vying for a share of the $25,000 prize purse that was generously sponsored by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance, through his interests in Shadwell Stud Australasia. Rabbit’s jockey was Isabella Teh, the youngest jockey on the day and also having her first race. She is no stranger to the
Arabian horse with her mother being an Arabian breeder, and her depth of riding experience was evident with her decision not to carry a whip. Isabella was the only jockey to do so, choosing to ride Rabbit within his own natural ability with her hands and heels. And they’re Racing..... with Rabbit missing the jump slightly and then being boxed in, Isabella had to ride decisively. After the turn to the home straight, she saw a gap and manoeuvred Rabbit to the outside. He literally wound up and finished strongly only 1¾ of a length behind the winning grey mare Alchimia (TS Al Malik x Mulawa Mascara), passing several other horses to do so. He finished so strongly that he was the last horse to amble back to be unsaddled amidst the cries of Run Rabbit Run. Congratulations are extended to Anthony Mountney for training the winning horse in both races, and to Danielle Walker for riding both winners, but that in itself needs another story. ▮ THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS 61
AUSSIE BLOODLINES TRIUMPH IN THE
RICHEST ARABIAN RACES EVER HELD IN AUSTRALIA
CAULFIELD IS ONE OF THE BEST RACE TRACKS IN THE WORLD IN SUPPORTING ARABIAN RACING ...
By National Arabian Racehorse Association www.naraaustralia.com
hey came to Caulfield from as far away as Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT to participate in two of the richest Arabian races to be run in Australia. Saturday February 1 dawned hot with the haze of bush fires hanging over the city. The Arabian racehorses started to arrive with their anxious and excited connections. The indomitable Lara Sawaya and her team from Abu Dhabi arrived and the tension mounted at the tie up stalls. At last the horses were led into the mounting yard for the first race, the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup, carrying the extraordinary purse of $53,500. Australia’s only lady race caller, the glamorous and talented Victoria Shaw, introduced the Arabians to the crowd. Gleaming and fit, they paraded, tails aloft, advertising their heritage. Jockeys up, they cantered to the start and moved into the barriers, loading calmly. And they’re off! They all broke well and John and Christine Willcox’s impressive stallion Aqaba Brown Dirt Cowboy drew level with Mulawa Stud’s recent Gold Coast winner Alchimia at the 300 metre mark and then kicked away under Katie Spalding to win by 4¼ lengths in a time of 1.24.33. Jill Colwell had the ride of her life on her mare Aloha Desert Jewel and finished a length away in third place. Sadly, Christine Willcox missed seeing her beloved stallion win the first Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup of the 2014 Global series. Her husband John, on the other hand, was speechless and bursting with pride as he led Cowboy around the mounting yard. After the presentation of the glittering trophies for trainer, owner and jockey, by Mr Al Mazrouei from the UAE Embassy, Mr Al Nuami, Director of International Promotions and Ms Lara Sawaya, Sheikh Mansoor’s Director of Racing, there was a short break before the runners for the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies World 62 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS

Raazoor Dajani with Naaziq prevailing. Con and Tom Bouzianis were very excited to say the least and extremely happy with the brilliant ride by Alyson Deniel.
This unique race series is contested by amateur lady jockeys and this year Australia welcomed seven young women from Germany, France, Korea, Austria, Great Britain, Oman and the UAE. Australia was represented by champion professional jockey Michelle Payne. Photos were taken with the visiting dignitaries and the jockeys mounted up.
It will be interesting to see which bloodlines come to the fore as Arabian racing gathers momentum in Australia. Aqaba Brown Dirt Cowboy carries two lines to Bremervale Stud’s foundation sire Oxford Decimus as well as a line to the lovely Oxford Royal Admiral. Conderosa Millenium Silver is by the wonderful Arabesque Sterling Silver, one of the last sons of the legendary Hestia. He was bred by the late and much loved Lesley Maxwell Dowey.
Again a smooth start and Conderosa Millenium Silver under Alyson Deniel of Great Britain looked to be unchallenged until UAE jockey Anoud Al Suwaidi on Coolinda Park Kazh made her presence felt. Millenium Silver pulled away after a tap with the whip and won strongly by 6 lengths in a time of 1.39.04. Anoud’s mount was having his first start and was a little slow out of the gates but came from behind for a very impressive run. The Willcox’s other horse, Aqaba Pride of Erin, ran on well for third by 2¼ lengths and a tussle ensued for fourth place between the well performed Warrawee Naaziq and Queensland horse
The NARA Team would like to thank HH Sheikh Mansoor, HH Sheikha Fatima and Lara Sawaya for the extraordinary support, generous prize money and spectacular trophies and rugs. It is an honour to be included in the Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival. In supporting Arabian racing, Caulfield now joins the ranks of the world’s most prestigious racetracks. NARA would also like to thank our faithful participants and their wonderful horses. You are all winners and we hope you will share your experience with your friends. ▮

When Judstan Gereynium (Danjera Rosskali x Judstan Delreyn) was led out of his paddock, little did he – or his owner, Judy Shore of Glenorie in Sydney’s northwest – know what to expect. After some stroking introductions, the four-year-old purebred Arabian experienced a series of gentle lifts, wraps and gum rubs which he readily accepted. Tellington TTouch Equine Awareness Method (TTEAM) was developed in America more than 40 years ago by Linda Tellington-Jones. The method was devised as a system of animal training, healing and communication allowing people to relate to their animals in a deeper, more compassionate way. So popular has the method become, there are now more than 1600 practitioners in 28 countries around the world. Visiting Australia from her home in Canada, Linda’s sister, Robyn Hood held a series of workshops in Sydney recently. She described the TTEAM method as a light 66 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS

form of massage which “uses a nontraditional way of training horses that honours the horse’s spirit and intelligence”. “We are interested in working with both the nervous system and also at a cellular level,” Robyn said. “If there is stress, disease or tension in the body, our interest is in helping the animal to release that tension so that they can feel better and perform better. “We pay a lot of attention to posture because tension is connected to posture and posture is connected to behaviour. If you think about a horse that is high-headed, why do we use all sorts of tools to lower the head? Because we know that if the head is not in the air they will not hit us in the chin and also that we can control them better. If we can teach horses to carry themselves in a posture that is more functional, they are not as reactive to things, they don’t shy as much and they can perform better.” Tellington TTouch originated in the sixties, Robyn explained. “Linda was not happy with what people did with horses to win a ribbon. She recognised that most of the time when animals don’t co-operate it is because of fear, pain or fear of pain. She had heard about the Feldenkrais method for people and one of the beliefs in this method is that the nervous system has the possibility of learning in one lesson if there is no pain involved and if it’s done through non-habitual movement that is not a threat to the body. So she thought if that’s true for humans, maybe it’s true for horses.

So she went out and started to do strange things to horses – move their ears, tails, legs in ways they wouldn’t normally move themselves and she started to see behaviour changes. “Our aim is looking for co-operation. One of the reasons we look at posture is that it is self-carriage which is connected to self-confidence which is connected to self-control. What we are trying to do is to teach animals to act instead of re-act.” According to Robyn, any animal that has a nervous system can be helped by Tellington TTouch. “We work with hundreds of animals from snakes to elephants and birds, because it’s a non-threatening mindful way of making contact. By working with animals that are fearful, what we are looking to do is to take away that fear.” Robyn said that teaching people TT was very satisfying. “If you can teach people to do it themselves, they are thrilled with the change in the relationship with their animal. There are lots of people out there who are really good with horses but it’s really only helpful to the horse and the owner if you can teach them how to do it. “First of all you have to determine how you would like your animal to be.

keep stopping their animals from doing what they don’t want and don’t actually give them a hint about what they do want. “Our interest is in having low stress ways of handling animals. I believe animals are here to teach us patience, forgiveness and unconditional acceptance. They put up with so much from us and so much of what we do, we do because we can.” ▮

A CAUTIONARY TALE FOR BREEDERS
CEREBELLAR ABIOTROPHY IF ONE PERSON, AS A RESULT OF READING THIS, IS SAVED FROM THE TRAUMA WE HAVE SUFFERED, THEN AT LEAST WE CAN FEEL A LITTLE LIKE SOMETHING GOOD HAS RESULTED FROM IT.
By Prue Tipping
fter many months of reviewing stallions we had seen, looking at videos, photos and pedigrees, a suitable mate was chosen for our beautiful “AA” Class winning purebred mare. The plan was for the resulting foal to be a “keeper” whatever sex it was. After regularly scanning the mare for a couple of months, the time was right and semen was requested and the mare inseminated right before ovulation. Further scans were done to confirm pregnancy at 15 and 45 days and all was well. We watched our mare change shape over the next few months and a couple of weeks before the due date, she was moved into a specially prepared foaling paddock and a foaling alarm was put on her. The foaling paddock contained a newly built large loose box and day yard so that if the weather was bad the mare could foal down in the box and be shut in if necessary. We put up lights to illuminate the entire paddock and cameras so we could check on the progress of the mare towards labour. Everything we could think of to ensure the safety of the mare and foal was done.
After quite some time, he started trying to stand, but as all foals do, he couldn’t get those long legs worked out and fell over a few times. We watched and then tried steadying him when he got up, but he just wasn’t able to balance enough to stand and nurse. Eventually, we decided to milk the mare and feed him some of her colostrum in the hope that it would give him the strength he needed to be able to get himself up and stand and nurse on his own. We then left them alone to bond and for him to rest then try standing again when he was ready. From inside the house, we watched on our foal box camera to see if he was able to stand and nurse, but although he tried, he just couldn’t make it and kept falling over, frequently crashing into the walls of the box. Several times through the night, we went out and milked the mare and fed him but by morning he still wasn’t able to stand on his own.
Worried that, although we had been feeding him regularly, he might not have received enough colostrum, we rang the vet and asked them to come and check his IgG level and if necessary to give him plasma. Twelve hours after birth his IgG was checked and found to be extremely low at 108. (If IgG levels are less than 400 at 12 hours, oral supplementation with frozen-thawed colostrum or a commercial colostrum substitute should be performed to ensure the foal has sufficient antibodies to be able to fight infection.) The vet gave him a plasma infusion, and almost immediately he was able to stand and nurse on his own. The joy of that moment however was quickly overshadowed by the fact that he was still extremely wobbly on his legs and he seemed to be bobbing his head around a lot more than normal.
As the time got closer, we checked the mare regularly looking for signs of imminent labour and at last, 350 days after insemination, the foal was born. A stunning colt, so like his dam when she was born, with a lovely dished head and good straight legs. Initially disappointed that she hadn’t had a filly, we were very happy with the look of our little man – Mouse. It was six years since we last bred a foal. We had tried with other mares in the intervening years but the mares had missed, reabsorbed or had a mid-term abortion. This foal was extremely special for us and he was a beauty. THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS 69
The vet watched him for some time and was unable to come up with an answer as to what his problem was. Various possibilities were considered. He may have been oxygen deprived during birth; he may have given himself a concussion when he fell against the wall in the box (he did have a swollen black eye); his spine near his neck might have been fused and be pinching the spinal cord; he might be just immature and need some time; or he might have CA – cerebellar abiotrophy, although that rarely displays symptoms with newborn foals. The vet felt that he would quite possibly improve over the next few days, and that we should just keep an eye on him and make sure he was drinking well and not hurting himself when he fell. A couple of days later and Mouse was still unsteady on his feet, and bobbing his head about. We got another of the vets from our local equine hospital to come and have a look at him. He was still not sure of his problem and felt that all the above mentioned possibilities were still valid. However, he did lean towards the probability that he was CA affected. As neither his sire nor dam had been tested for CA, we collected hair samples and sent them off by express courier for testing. While waiting for the results of the testing we observed his action and behaviour closely. He seemed to be getting less
and less stable on his legs and frequently overbalanced. He would try to do the normal foal things and run around the paddock, but as he ran he would get uncoordinated and invariably ended up falling over. One evening, I looked out the kitchen window and to my horror I saw that he was caught in a fence. We raced outside and luckily managed to get him out without him suffering any injury. After that we decided that we would shut him and his mum up in the loose box and small yard just before dark so that he at least couldn’t get caught in a fence during the night and not be found until morning. During the day while he was out in the paddock, we were afraid to go out in case he got caught up again. On the rare occasions we did go out, we dreaded what we might find when we came home. Every day we watched and both of us felt that he was deteriorating. A little less than two weeks after he was born, we both felt that it was not fair to keep him going as he was. There were times when he fell over and after struggling to stand a few times he would just give up and stay where he was and have a sleep. We felt there was no point in waiting for any test results, because whatever his problem was, it was not getting any better. We asked for the head of the local equine hospital to come out and have one more look at him, and if
he confirmed what we felt then it was time for our little man to be laid to rest. Within a couple of minutes of looking at him, our worst fears were confirmed by the vet and Mouse was peacefully euthanised. We left him with his mum for a day, so she could accept and mourn his loss, and then he was buried in our back paddock and a memorial tree planted there for him. Eight days after Mouse was laid to rest, the results from the testing of the hair samples came back confirming our fears that our poor baby was CA affected. From the moment of conception, our poor Mouse never had a chance of being a healthy normal foal. I am writing this story in the hope that anyone considering breeding will check to see if the stallion is a carrier of any of the known inheritable genetic diseases. If the stallion is a known carrier, please get your mare checked before going ahead with breeding from that pair. I would not wish the huge amount of stress and anguish, together with financial loss, that we have suffered as a result of this unfortunate pairing on anyone. If one person, as a result of reading this, is saved from the trauma we have suffered, then at least we can feel a little like something good has resulted from it. Seeing a young foal struggling the way ours did was a nightmare that just kept going on. Even if you just think about how your poor mare will feel if she has to suffer the early loss of her foal it would be worth getting the tests done. I believe that all active breeding stallions should be tested before use. The cost for all three tests – CA, SCID and LFS – is way less than one service fee, and is surely worth it for peace of mind for everyone concerned. I strongly believe that the results of the tests should be mandatorily posted on the AHSA database for everyone to see. It should not be left to a stallion owner to advise prospective clients if their stallion is a carrier. At the moment, if a stallion has been tested and the results forwarded to the AHSA, the stallion service approval form should show the carrier status of that horse even if the AHSA database shows the status as “result withheld”. I advise mare owners to ask to see a copy of the stallion approval form before making any decision. If a stallion is a carrier, anyone wanting to use that stallion can then make sure that the mare they are considering using is tested and is clear of the carried disease before going ahead with the breeding. Affected foals will only result if both parents are carriers, so it is quite safe for a carrier horse to be used, provided the other parent is clear of that disease. Please, please, please – make sure of the carrier status before going ahead with any planned future breedings. ▮

THE VALUE OF OUR DERIVATIVES By Sarah Barrie
eauty, intelligence, spirit, athleticism, versatility. Why wouldn’t you breed a little (or a lot) of Arabian blood into your other breed? Certainly, no matter what discipline you are producing a foal for, it’s hard to go wrong. Even those of us who can’t go past a purebred Arabian have to admit that there are certain elements other breeds can sometimes bring to an Arabian that can make it just that bit more suitable for, or competitive at, some disciplines. Having a derivative registry in this country has been phenomenally successful. Derivatives outnumber the purebreds hands down, they support the Arabian shows, inject much needed funds into the industry, promote the breed in just about every discipline, and their owners are out there because they love and value Arabians.
The wonderful breeders that create the sensational derivatives we have today, who are successful across so many disciplines, are vital to our industry. Every time a celebrated horse for whatever its chosen discipline is recognised as an Arabian Warmblood, or Arabian Pony or Arabian Stockhorse or any number of categories, everyone is hearing ‘Arabian’. And it brings people to our breed. Some people will use Arabians in their breeding programs for their entire careers, and others yet will move on to purebreds – how many times have you heard people state their purebred programs began with owning a little partbred at one time or another? Derivatives contribute so much flavour to our shows. I personally love to see the variety of horses at Arabian events. Not
only are there stunning purebreds, but tiny children can be seen trotting around on elegant Arabian Riding Ponies, while in the next ring, enormous, impressive Arabian Warmbloods are on show, or spectacular pinto horses, or finely-boned Anglos or solidly-built Quarabs, in every coat colour imaginable. And I don’t believe that any other breed show has the same variety of classes. From classic trot to hacking, harness to working stockhorse, costume and even the odd barrel race! While purebreds can and do enjoy all these classes, there simply wouldn’t be that same range of events without our derivatives. In the following pages, we feature some outstanding examples of our derivative horses, and learn a little more about what a judge is looking for in the line-up. ▮ THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS 71

WISHLIST TO SAY THE COLT WAS PRETTY WAS AN UNDERSTATEMENT AND HE HAD PLENTY OF BLING – JUST HOW VIV LIKES THEM.
By Belinda Zaiter
fter losing her amazing buckskin stallion Heste Arabique First Impression (aka “Ren”), Viv Motbey never thought she would find another horse that would remotely live up to him. However, in October 2011, just four months after losing Ren, David Gillett of Diamond Road Arabians contacted Viv and told her he had bred a colt that was exactly what she was after. The colt was by David’s stallion Ray of Light, out of the gorgeous purebred mare Escarda Spozobella. A couple of hours later a photo of a gorgeous palomino colt, just one hour old, was sent through to Viv. To say the colt was pretty was an understatement and he had plenty of bling – just how Viv likes them. When he was about eight weeks old Viv went to see him in the flesh and was blown away at his typiness, conformation, movement and laid-back, endearing character. He was extremely independent and the decision to purchase him was immediate. David allowed Viv to name him and to her delight the name she really wanted, Wishlist, was accepted. Wishlist (or Harry as he is known at home) really did tick everything on her wish list (except he wasn’t buckskin). When he arrived at Viv’s property in March 2012 as a tiny little colt, it was clear that weaning hadn’t done him any favours. Although Viv was very concerned that he WORKING OUT AT THE NATIONALS
WISHLIST – WINNER OF THE JUNIOR SHIRANNA SASH
wouldn’t thrive and grow, after a few months he began to improve, began halter training with Richard Sharman and was taken to his first shows in July. Both of these first outings were to foal shows and he achieved two Supreme awards at the first, then Supreme Foal of show at the second – the NSW AHA Foal Show. Wishlist then went on to gain two Champions at the NSW Arabian State Titles in September, before falling ill as a result of a tetanus vaccination. His illness put him back many months and he was almost pulled out of the National Arabian Stud Show, but despite being very underdone he managed to win the Junior Shiranna sash from 26 entries! Viv continued with the struggle to get him looking great, and due to her hard work, he had very pleasing results over the 2012 season.
Over the winter of 2013, after many diet changes, he began to blossom again and finally look the way Viv wanted him to. With Richard Sharman, who has shown him to many of his wins, as well as Kirsten Strath and Robert Heyward when Richard is not available, he has had a sensational 2013 season with multiple Grand Supremes, Supremes and Champions in both Coloured and Arabian classes. Wishlist has an unbelievable temperament and is at times a little too laid back. He is often found sound asleep in his stable at shows after his classes, despite the hustle and bustle around him. Viv is often approached by people asking, “Is this Wishlist?” and asking if they can pat him. Yes, he has his own fan club! There are many plans for this beautiful boy. Viv has already started making his show costume but that will have to wait until after he is established under saddle. Western Pleasure is also on the agenda. Some are very lucky to own one amazing horse in their lives but Viv has been blessed with her two coloured boys. Ironically, Wishlist was born the same year as Ren died. They were born ten years apart, both being the first foal of the season and sharing the same number brand 1 over 1. Wishlist and Ren both won the Champion Partbred Arabian Colt award at the National Arabian Stud Show exactly ten years apart and were both Grand Supreme Champion at their respective Palomino and Buckskin National Show ten years apart, at two years of age. Fate? Maybe. Hopefully Wishlist’s career will be successful for many, many years and this story will continue long into the future. ▮

JUDGES ALLAN PRESTON, INTERNATIONAL ARABIAN JUDGE AND CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN SOCIETY, AND CATHY PADGEN AND SUE OBERG, BOTH NATIONAL PANEL JUDGES, KINDLY SHARE THEIR THOUGHTS.
By Glenys Lilley
n this column we will be asking some of our leading judges what they are looking for in the show ring. This time, it’s Arabian Derivative led classes. Purebred Arabians have always been used to improve the beauty, stamina, quality and intelligence of other breeds of horses, and were a foundation for many breeds: Thoroughbreds, Warmbloods, Welsh Ponies, Riding Ponies and Australian Stock Horses, to name but a few. I had a partbred mare classified as a Studbook Stockhorse back in the 80s, and there were many pure and partbred Arabians classified at the same time. My father-in-law used the local purebred stallion to breed working horses, for mustering in the mountain country. He had no interest in the show ring or bloodlines, but valued the sturdy and intelligent progeny.
Instead, in Australia we have developed Arabian Derivatives. These derivatives take on all sorts of equestrian endeavours and win. As each category of derivative has been selectively bred, the quality and conformation has improved to such a degree that these horses more often than not are at the top of their chosen discipline. This year while taking photos around the Sydney region shows, it was great to see them doing just that. Patria Chocolate Ripple took out Sydney Royal Champion Working Hunter Pony, and The Hunter Horse National Championships Supreme Working and Led Hunter Pony, (as well as many other show champions). Then there was Nottingham Shower of Dreams
– Reserve Australian Preliminary Dressage Pony, Macquarie Bank Hack Champion Small Galloway, Top 10 EA HOTY, and Champion or Reserve Galloway at all Hack and Agricultural shows she attended. Yet another example is EBL Juliett, an Arabian Warmblood and current Equestrian Australia National Show Hunter Hack. And these are just a sample of the derivatives out there competing and winning. It is often grumbled that the derivatives in open competition have only a small percentage of Arabian blood, but this is not the case. The aforementioned Patria Chocolate Ripple is 50%, and two well-performed palominos: Wishlist (read about him this issue) – Supreme Palomino exhibit at the recent NSW All Palomino Show, and Foxwood Golden Spark – Supreme Palomino at the National Capital Show are both 50% or more Arabian blood, and winning these awards under All Breeds judges. These horses, too, are only a small example of the many highpercentage Arabians in open competition. Another is Renlim Park Tobias, who also has his own article this issue (he’s one of those 50% Anglo Arabians). So what are judges looking for when judging derivatives? Allan Preston, International Arabian Judge and Chairman of the board of the Australian Arabian Society, and Cathy Padgen and Sue Oberg, both National Panel Judges, kindly shared their thoughts. What are the most important characteristics you look for when judging Arabian Derivatives?
All of these breeds have developed into completely different looking horses from 12hh to over 17hh, with unique breed standards, but the Arabian influence can still pop up generations later. I have seen a Studbook Thoroughbred with a beautiful dished head, and yet the Arabian influence was way back in the 1700s. Some Welsh Ponies have heads a purebred would envy, with their short dishy faces, large jowls and melting eyes. There have always been purebred Arabians competing in open company successfully, but to compete at the highest level in dressage, eventing or the open hack rings, the purebred’s conformation and type would have to be dramatically altered to match horses bred specifically for that particular discipline, therefore forever changing the desert breed. (This has been done overseas. Dare I whisper that some purebred Arabians in America look very like Saddlebreds when bred for Park Horse Classes?) 78 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
EACH CATEGORY OF DERIVATIVE HAS BEEN SELECTIVELY BRED FOR QUALITY AND CONFORMATION. MANY ALSO HAVE DISHY FACES, LARGE JOWLS AND MELTING EYES A PUREBRED WOULD ENVY. ABLUE MOON’S ALTISSIMO – ARABIAN PONY COLT.
Cathy Padgen: Movement, conformation, riding type (I want to think “I want to throw a leg over that!”) and temperament, clear definition of what the other part of the breeding is (I don’t want to be left standing thinking “what are you?”), pretty much in that order. Sue Oberg: Quality, presence; a natural athlete. Balance and movement is a deciding factor as it can make a plainer horse become beautiful once it moves and a beautiful individual standing can be less than thrilling when it moves. A true athletic individual is apparent in the first walk around the ring. The led horse should be everything you imagined it to be when you see it under saddle otherwise you have failed in your job as a judge. Sometimes judges dwell on a particular fault in a horse and overlook all of the good qualities that horse possesses. Allan Preston: Balance, quality, soundness and movement. How much does the other Breed Standard ie. Riding Pony, Stock Horse, Thoroughbred, Pony, Quarter Horse etc, contribute to your judging assessment? Cathy Padgen: The better quality the horse is eg. conformation and movement, the less minor deviations from the other breed standard have a big impact on my assessment. In the end it’s a balancing act between the two, which is the best horse that shows harmony and balance between the pedigrees – eg. no little Arab legs on big Warmblood bodies!!
DERIVATIVES SHOULD POSSESS THE QUALITIES OF BOTH CONTRIBUTING BREEDS. THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL PARTBRED ARABIAN STROSLLA PARC YOGI BEAR [PHOTO AL FOTOZ]
are not penalised; of course they are the icing on the cake of a quality horse, but it’s a derivative class, not a purebred class with a score for Arabian type, and it’s also not a class for horses showing the most Arabian characteristics. Allan Preston: It’s a balance of all contributing breeds, and the animal has to be a good, sound, functional riding horse. How do you like to see them presented for the led classes? Cathy Padgen: I think it’s a matter of personal preference, but whichever way you go should be correct for that breed type. I don’t think a blend of half-Arab style and half, say, western works!! For Anglos, Partbreds and Pony registries, I like a bridle with a butterfly lead or chain, rather than reins, as it makes it easier
to run and show the horse. If the horse is a bit weak, say, in Quarter Horse qualities, showing it western style might just give you that added bit of style and a suggestion that there is perhaps more Quarter Horse qualities than there actually are. It’s all about tactics and smoke and mirrors LOL. Sue Oberg: Depends on the horse, but it must be presented to the ultimate in either English, Western or Arabian. It must be presented fully to a particular style, so if plaited, then tail has to be plaited or pulled or free flowing mane and tail immaculately presented, not half one way or the other. Allan Preston: No preference, but they have to be neatly presented, well-conditioned, and kindly handled. ▮
Sue Oberg: I always look for the best horse of quality, free of any conformation faults that would affect its movement and usefulness as a saddle horse in any class I’m judging. Allan Preston: I like to see that the derivative shows the qualities of both breeds and a combination of the components that made the other breed successful in the discipline it was bred for, for example, an Arabian Warmblood should have the qualities and conformation to compete in the Olympic disciplines – dressage, eventing etc. Is Arabian type a large factor in the assessment or is it a balance of all contributing breeds? Cathy Padgen: In the ideal world I think it is a balance between the contributing breeds, producing a flowing horse that is a series of curves (to quote our old friend Lesley Dowey!) that makes for a functional, beautiful riding horse with the best attributes from all contributing to the pedigree. For me personally, I love the 50/50 TB – Arab cross, unfashionable these days but I don’t care!! Sue Oberg: I look for a balance of all contributing breeds. Arabian characteristics

JOE COMPETING SUCCESSFULLY AT ENDURANCE [PHOTO FAST PACED PHOTOS]
DOING A BIT OF EVERYTHING
TEXAS-JOHANN THERE ARE NOT MANY SIX-YEAR-OLD HORSES YOU WOULD TRUST WITH YOUR SEVENYEAR-OLD DAUGHTER OFF-LEAD, BUT JOE IS ONE.
By Anna Erickson
exas-Johann, or Joe, is a registered partbred Arabian by the stallion Texas-Tyyme (Hayyid x Noran Mantilla). He came to me as a rising two-year-old with attitude… the first Arab I had ever owned. He has developed into the most personorientated, characterful horse I have ever had the pleasure to own, with an eager to please world view and a permanent position at the bottom of the home herd pecking order. He was my second endurance mount, so he and I have learned the ropes together. He is not the fastest by any means, but we did manage to pull off First Heavyweight at the 2013 State Championships, and Best Conditioned Heavyweight Horse: titles of which we are suitably proud. What I admire most about this horse is that although he is all business at rides, he can 80 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
also turn his hoof to dressage and Adult Rider classes, in the summer “off” season, and will happily plod along over a 20km social ride, escorting my two children on their much slower ponies. On these rides he has to take up “last place” so I can keep an eye on everyone else, and he accepts this demotion with good grace. Number two daughter is looking forward to completing her first 40km ride next season, which Joe and I will no doubt escort her round. My now nine-year-old has been riding Joe since she was seven. There are not many six-year-old horses you would trust with your seven-year-old daughter off-lead, but Joe is one. He’s been friends with her since she was very small. Joe has also turned his hoof to two successful completions at the Blackwood marathon: in the chaos of the horse start he is generally to be found under a shady tree,

eating grass, and watching everyone else with mild interest as ponies and riders get very excited. I have big plans for this horse, but if they do not come off, I will feel privileged nonetheless to have him in my paddock. And I reckon if I’m lucky I might have another two or three years before my daughter steals him… ▮
WIN A HOLIDAY!
BRUSHY POINT ECO LODGE Need a couple of nights away? It’s easy to get tied up in the routines of training and competing – of keeping your horses at their peak and preparing for that next big competition. But when was the last time you took your horse somewhere purely for the pleasure of being there, with no pressure to do anything in particular, other than to enjoy yourself and relax? Imagine packing up for a few days and heading somewhere with your family or a friend, maybe your favourite horses, or a dog if you like, to where there are beautiful trails, a stunning lake and sensational beaches, with nothing more pressing on your schedule than catching the sunrise… or sunset, for that perfect swim in the lake or gallop along the beach. Want to do it for free? I was recently invited to spend a weekend at Brushy Point Eco Lodge near Forster on the NSW North Coast. And I’m very glad I did. It’s the perfect place for a weekend getaway. Both the Brushy Point Lake House and Cabin are breezy, light-filled holiday homes surrounded by lawns and a private tennis court, with views to the lake. Situated on 100 acres of lakefront, it boasts spectacular views over Wallis Lake and Seven Mile Beach. And there are seven outstanding Mid North Coast beaches, three coastal lake systems and national parks (with endless riding trails) right on its doorstep. Enjoy a drink and a BBQ on the deck or just hang in the hammocks and watch the sun set. This is a holiday made for relaxation.
The property also boasts a private mooring and jetty. Small boats can be launched from beside the jetty, and you can water ski, fish, swim, sail, kayak or hire a motor boat. Boat over to the recreation club across the lake or to the boat house for lunch or head to Forster. The 2 bedroom Cabin sleeps four, or the 4 bedroom Lake House sleeps eight. Both are fully self-contained and equipped with TV, DVD, stereo, video, microwave, hammocks, outdoor furniture and gas BBQs on large entertaining decks. Pets are welcome by arrangement. For the horses there is one large yard and one smaller yard and a shelter available. This is truly a divine place to get away, and thanks to Brushy Point Eco Lodge, AHN is giving away two nights’ accommodation in the Brushy Point Cabin for up to two adults and two children. I can highly recommend getting an entry in! How to enter Go to the AHN facebook page (www. facebook.com/AustralianAHN) and like and share our Brushy Point Eco Lodge competition post. It’s that simple. Terms and Conditions: The prize is for a maximum of 2 adults & 2 children, who may bring up to 2 horses or 2 dogs.

ABLUE MOON RISING
ABLUE MOON’S ALTISSIMO
RISING ABLUE MOON HAS THREE FOALS DUE BY ‘ZING’ IN 2014. WITH THE AMAZING SHOW RECORDS ESTABLISHED BY HIS FEW PROGENY TO DATE, AND THEIR REMARKABLE BEAUTY AND QUALITY, IT LOOKS TO BE ANOTHER EXCITING YEAR AHEAD..... ABLUE MOON RISING IS TRULY A TESTAMENT TO HIS OWN NAME.
By Dee & Nicola Kelly
beacon from the moment of his birth, Ablue Moon Rising is the embodiment of the phrase ‘once in a blue moon’ for his owners Dee and Nicola Kelly of Ablue Moon Arabian Ponies. The first Arabian Pony born under their banner, ‘Zing’ continues to shine as an individual and now as a sire. From his superb face and the tips of his tiny ears to his exuberantly carried tail, he is the epitome of the Arabian Pony, and this is evidenced by the size of his following both in Australia and abroad. 82 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
Carrying over 64% Arabian blood, Zing was the first of only three Arabian Ponies sired by the legendary S K Shakla Khan, and is his only Arabian Pony son (Dee and Nicola subsequently bred two Arabian Pony daughters of Khan), making him a horse of unique pedigree and incredible Arabian type. His dam, Kim-Dande Stormgirl, is a daughter of the well-performed pony Cherrington Sir Jason, and remains at Ablue Moon as a broodmare and a supervisor of her descendants.
As a youngster, Zing was plagued by a series of unfortunate circumstances which repeatedly shattered hopes of a halter career. After the outbreak of Equine Influenza in Australia, subsequently returning lame from the breaker, a severe cold, an attack of a never-diagnosed mystery illness and a broken nose and jaw, the decision was eventually made to abandon plans to show Zing, and instead to produce foals by him who would, hopefully, attain the accolades that their sire was never able to attempt. Now a
seven-year-old, with four small crops on the ground out of the exquisite broodmares who were specifically chosen to complement him, all plans have come to fruition as impressively as could ever have been wished. Born into an atmosphere of high excitement, Zing’s first and only foal set the standard for what looks to be a stupendous breeding career. Ablue Moon’s Bed of Roses, the desperately desired palomino filly, is jawdroppingly beautiful and astonishingly correct. She made her debut as a weanling at the Victorian foal shows, where she was awarded seven Championships, including Grand Champion Dual Registered Exhibit against decorated yearlings as well as other weanlings. Two of Zing’s 2011 foals were lost in tragic circumstances – La Vie En Rose lost a stillborn brother to Bed of Roses ten weeks prematurely and Lavuka Cleopatra’s superb colt, Ablue Moon’s Magna Carta, died in a freak accident. Ablue Moon’s TNT was enjoying a game with the remaining foals when he hit a plain wire fence, opening his face to the bone. Though scarred, he nevertheless found an outstanding home with Andrew Thorek of New South Wales and has been lightly shown for multiple Championships. Since then, Zing has produced five foals for Ablue Moon. The palomino Arabian Riding Pony colt Ablue Moon’s Magna Opera, already a multi-Champion inhand, is owned in partnership with Taminga Equestrian and has his future as a Dressage Pony all mapped out. The inimitable chestnut colt Ablue Moon’s
ABLUE MOON’S STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Altissimo has been shown with great success as a yearling. Sold as a threemonth-old foal, he was campaigned by Ablue Moon on behalf of his owner Carmel Barnfield of Wayfield Lodge. ‘Elmo’ was recently awarded East Coast Champion Arabian Pony Yearling Colt following on from his State Championship title in Victoria. An ecstatic Carmel met him for the first time at East Coast, and at the
conclusion of the show he travelled up to his new home state of Queensland. The adorable grey colt Ablue Moon’s AvantGarde was sold as a gelding to Lendene Stud at only three weeks of age, and is a much-loved family member who has enjoyed a promising start to his show career. 2013 saw the arrival of two glorious fillies: the palomino Ablue Moon’s Stairway to Heaven and chestnut Ablue Moon’s Break n Hearts. Break n Hearts was sold at birth to a wonderful home in New South Wales, with Stairway to Heaven retained. These two exceptional fillies are outstanding individuals, and both are destined for stardom. Ablue Moon has three foals due by Zing in 2014. With the amazing show records established by his few progeny to date, and their remarkable beauty and quality, it looks to be another exciting year ahead. Already a sire of East Coast, State, Classic, Grand and Multi-Champions, with his eldest foals set to make their saddle debuts in the coming season, Zing is setting a demanding precedent. His progeny now reside in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, with six states and territories represented on the waiting list for his 2014 offspring.
ABLUE MOON’S BED OF ROSES
From his pasture, Zing proudly surveys his broodmare band and progeny. With his iridescent gold coat and flowing white mane and tail, this young stallion is a heavenly vision, not just of the present, but of the future. Ablue Moon Rising is truly a testament to his own name. ▮ THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS 83
SECRETS TO SUCCESS
ELOUISE LANDO & RENLIM PARK TOBIAS ANYONE THAT KNOWS OR HAS MET TOBY IS AWARE OF HOW HUGE HIS PERSONALITY IS. HE IS AN ABSOLUTE CHARACTER AND NEVER FAILS TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH AND SMILE, AND BEST OF ALL HE AND I HAVE A BOND THAT I HAVE NEVER HAD, AND MAY NEVER HAVE AGAIN WITH ANY OTHER HORSE.
By Glenys Lilley Photos by Derek O’Leary
enlim Park Tobias AKA Toby or Mr T is a 9-year-old Anglo gelding by the purebred stallion, Arundel House Amaani. He earned the nickname ‘Mr T’ due to his white blaze in the shape of a T. The partnership of Toby and his devoted owner Elouise is a story of success. Since his first season as a champion Novice Ridden Derivative and Supreme Ridden Derivative, they have amassed many impressive wins together. In their second season, major wins came at the East Coast Championships, where Toby took out both the Champion of Champions Show Hunter Hack and Champion of Champions Bridle Path Hack – a unique achievement. Season three saw even more titles, kicking off in open competition at HRCAV and dressage with him unbeaten in HRCAV ridden mount level 1 showing, and also highpoint Arabian dressage. The Arabian shows then continued with Supreme at The CARABI Versatile Show and then back up to East Coast, winning Champion of Champions Show Hunter for the second year running. This season Toby has exceeded all expectations, having rarely been beaten and taking out Supreme Ridden at CARABI Pre Royal, YVAHAC Extravaganza, CARABI Extravaganza, The Victorian Arabian Classic, as well as winning both The Extravaganza Cup and The Extravaganza Freestyle challenge, winning by over 10 points. In this interview, Elouise kindly shares some of the secrets behind their incredibly successful partnership. How did you find Toby, and what were you looking for in a prospective mount? I have had Toby since late 2010 and came across him when Joanne Fabling, breeder and owner at the time, leased us Toby for 84 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
UNANIMOUS SUPREME RIDDEN – ARABIAN EXTRAVAGANZA DOUBLE SHOT SHOW 2013
what was supposed to be one season. Four years later I proudly own him and he is most definitely at this home forever. I was looking for a performance horse, meaning conformation was paramount but I also wanted a show horse, a horse that would capture people’s attention when he entered the ring and make them say ‘who is that?’ – a horse that judges and spectators would remember. Toby was definitely that horse. His trot still gives me goosebumps and his presence fills the arena. Lastly I wanted personality. Anyone that knows or has met Toby is aware of how huge his personality is. He is an absolute character and never fails to make people laugh and smile, and best of all he and I have a bond that I have never had, and may never have again with any other horse. It is a trust second to none. What does your training regime involve? As much as my heart lies with showing, most of my training is dressage based. I have had the same wonderful coach since I was just six years old and Jenny Bray has been responsible for all the training behind my success. Jenny works off the German Training Scale but adapts her methods to each and every horse and rider as she has done with me for over 15 years and many horses. Toby’s training began three years ago with establishing all the basics, before going on to start training higher level dressage movements with lateral work etc. His training schedule sees him worked 3–6 days a week and if possible I try to do something different with him every couple of weeks, whether that be some jumping, trail rides or just working him in a new environment to keep him interested. He is now training medium dressage and competing at an elite showing level. An average ride on Toby involves a long rein walk warm up, then riding in a steady rhythm in all three paces, getting him to swing through to the contact, keeping relaxed, even and straight through the head, neck, shoulders and hindquarters. Then I begin transitions in and out of the paces, using seat and legs to keep the same relaxation and straightness through transitions. This helps to keep him interested and fresh, which then encourages Toby to use his natural impulsion engagement. Once I feel I can maintain steady rhythm and engagement through transition of pace and also within pace (collected, working, lengthened strides), I then introduce bend, using lots of shapes, serpentines and varied sized circles.
TOBY ALSO WON THE HIGHLY CONTENDED EXTRAVAGANZA CUP
Through the progression of these exercises, the impulsion and straightness improves and is refined, eventually leading to true collection. All these exercises are done using increasingly less aids as ‘contact is an extension of the aids of the rider, not the beginning point of an aid the rider applies’. Your partnership has been incredibly successful, could you please share some tips for the ring? Begin by choosing a horse that you can bond with and who you understand. It makes training and competing a lot easier. You also need to be prepared to put in the necessary hours of training and preparation – it pays off tenfold. Presentation is so important– you don’t need a huge budget to look great out in the ring, but always make sure your gear fits and is clean and neat, that the saddle
... AND EXTRAVAGANZA FREESTYLE
sits in the right place, and that the bridle is correctly fitted. Take your time preparing your horse. Make sure the feet are perfectly painted, the tail is a good length, socks are clean and white etc. and learn how to do nice plaits. These are all things that don’t cost but will pay off in the ring. It’s the same for rider presentation, which is again just making sure everything is clean and neat and well fitted (my pet peeve is messy buns under helmets). My last tip for a winning combination... ‘Ride it like you stole it!’ This is something I often hear coming from my amazing show family on the sidelines as I ride past. I believe if you enter the ring like a winner you will come out as one; the added smile and confidence doesn’t go unnoticed, and it stops the nerves and allows you to enjoy your time showing. ▮

QURSED – 2012 EAST COAST RESERVE CHAMPION ARABIAN WARMBLOOD FILLY 2 & 3 YEARS [PHOTO HORSEOGRAPHY]
TW QURSED FLYING THE FLAG: ARABIANS AND DERIVATIVES WINNING OUTSIDE THE ARABIAN RINGS.
By Tracey Watson
W Qursed is a four-yearold Arabian Warmblood and Hanoverian mare sired by the 2006 Bundeschampionate Champion, Quaterback. Quaterback is a 30 Day Stallion Performance Test winner and is known for his incredible movement, and many of his progeny show that same athleticism and suppleness. In 2008, I set about breeding him to Broadway Waterford with frozen semen and Qursed was born in 2009. Broadway Waterford, sired by Weltmeyer, one of the most influential sires in Germany, is a striking black mare who is registered Arabian Warmblood and Hanoverian. In her Hanoverian 3yo Mare Classification, Broadway Waterford placed first in Australia earning her the Premium Mare Award. Qursed has been trained and shown for her entire career by Andrew Buckley of E.B. Lodge Performance Horses and has an impressive resumé with many halter class wins to her credit in the Arabian Warmblood and Warmblood rings. Qursed’s journey of success commenced as a foal when she was named Grand Champion of the 2010 ACE Group Tour. Within Arabian Warmblood circles, some milestone wins include Supreme Led Arabian Derivative at Bathurst Royal, twice NSW State Champion Arabian Warmblood, Champion 86 THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS
and Reserve Champion at the Australian National Arabian Championships, Reserve Champion and twice Champion at the East Coast Arabian Championships with her crowning glory being sashed Champion of Champions Arabian Warmblood at the 2013 East Coast Arabian Championships. Campaigned as a Warmblood, some highlights include Best ANSA Youngstock at Sydney Royal Easter Show and Supreme Champion at the NSW Australian Warmblood Horse Association (AWHA) Show. In the 2013 AWHA Tour, Qursed won her nationally contested class with a score of 85% that was also the highest score in NSW and the second highest score in Australia. Last year Qursed was also presented for her Mare Classifications and was graded Head Stud Book on 84.5% with the AWHA and became an Elite Eligible Mare with the Hanoverian Society achieving an overall score of 8, including a score of 9 for trot.
The Newcastle Herald as part of a lead story about the recent hot weather. Qursed can be seen enjoying a ride in the river that adjoins E.B. Lodge Performance Horses. The aim for 2014 has been for Qursed to progress in her saddle training and continue to be campaigned in Showing and Dressage. And this has certainly been the case so far. This year to date Qursed has continued her success with: n
2014 East Coast Arabian Championships – Reserve Champion Ridden Arabian Derivative Young Horse.
Completing her Hanoverian Mare Performance Test earning her Premium Mare Candidate designation in Dressage and Jumping. At the completion of the Tour Qursed was named Australian Champion Jumping Mare on Tour.
2014 Australian National Arabian Championships – Australian National Champion Ridden Arabian Warmblood Mare and Australian National Champion Senior Derivative 4 yrs & over, 15 – 16hh led by Amateur Owner.
Whilst enjoying the success at present, planning continues for the next generation of competition horses. Qursed will be utilised later in the year as a donor mare for an Embryo Transfer foal.
Brought along slowly under saddle, Qursed made her debut late last year with numerous wins in Newcomer, Breeds and Hack classes including a Top 10 Newcomer Hack at NSW Horse of the Year against some quality competition.
Another magical moment in my breeding program came about in November 2013 with my other Arabian Warmblood mare Broadway Dreamtime giving birth to an exquisite black filly, TW Tantilize, sired by three time World Dressage Champion, Totilas.
Outside of the competition arena, Qursed enjoys going out on trail rides and was recently featured in a photo on the front page of
Tantilize, together with Qursed are the reason why I breed, and I look forward to the excitement of the many wins ahead. ▮
PETER WAS AN ACCOMPLISHED HORSEMAN WITH A LONG AND SUCCESSFUL ENDURANCE CAREER
PETER COLE THE MAN I KNEW
PETER WAS A FAIRLY PRIVATE PERSON THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE BUT FOR THOSE WHO WERE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO SEE HIS INNER SELF IT WAS A PLEASURE TO KNOW AND LOVE HIM.
By Louise Hamilton
eter Cole lost his valiant battle with cancer on Monday the 2nd of September 2013 at the age of 63.
Peter’s life was a colourful collage of family, friends, endurance and plenty of adventure. He was a proud father to Margaret, Jolene and Matthew; grandfather to Emma and Jackson; and loving partner to Christine. Peter was an accomplished horseman and had a very successful and long career in endurance riding. He bred numerous horses that have gone on to be highly competitive in Australia and overseas. Peter’s remarkable partnership with the world renowned Chip Chase Sadaqa (Wings) started out by purchasing him from a headshot in a magazine. That was all Peter needed to know he would be a champion. Wings’ genetics have been the foundation for many studs to breed their own champion horses in numerous disciplines. His temperament and athleticism were his trademarks. NSWERA ride records track Peter back to 1976 (age 26) through to his last recorded ride in 2006. This thirty year career included the 1998 Ride Thru Hell (80km) in an impressive time of 3hrs 24mins on Wings. Peter successfully competed not only on
Chip Chase Sadaqa but also on Crystal Flyer, Bara Park Blue, Iditerod Pagan, Kurrajong Kaleb, Lynn-roy Aziim Safar, Hillbrook Poachers Moon (Exp UAE) and Coolahlee Park Anka to name a few. He was the founder of Kurrajong Arabians that is now under the management of his daughter Jolene. The highlight of Peter’s endurance career was winning the 1983 Tom Quilty in 11hrs 23mins at 103kgs on Wings. Peter was seriously injured in the 1985 Tom Quilty (the last Quilty to be held at Colo) and was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital suffering a fractured eye socket/nose/ other facial bones, major blood loss and concussion. Despite this he continued to compete in endurance and successfully completed more than 10,000km over the years making him eligible for an AERA Lifetime Distance Award (to be awarded at the 2015 50th Tom Quilty). Peter had many skills and interests. He held the record for boning out a lamb carcass for export with no second cuts in 55 seconds at the Blayney Abattoir. He then went on to run the Wilberforce Abattoir. Peter was a pigeon and poultry enthusiast. On a road trip to purchase Silver Laced
Wyandotte chooks he was adamant he would not be paying the amount advertised. He took one look at the chooks and it was love at first sight. He ended up paying the fellow more than the advertised price! His menagerie always included a cattle dog and a cockatoo – his cockatoos were all called Neville (after their predecessors). Peter loved a good laugh and when he flew us to the Western Australian Quilty to strap he worded up an international horse buyer to ask my husband Greg if he could swap two racing camels for me; not a proposition you hear every day. Peter was as tough as nails, which helped with his dislike of dentists. When one of his teeth needed urgent dental attention he borrowed our needle nosed vice grips to remove it there and then with no fuss or nonsense. More recently Peter and Christine ran a successful café (successful once Peter deterred a few questionable clientele). Later they retired to a small acreage in the Manning area where he was a respected coach for his son Matthew’s junior football team. Peter was a great AFL supporter and right up to the end he was following the Sydney Swans passionately. Peter was very generous even when he couldn’t afford to be. He was intelligent, funny, protective, caring and a dear friend who will be greatly missed. He was never much of a hugger, but would give the odd loving slap on the back in times of sadness. Peter was a fairly private person throughout his life but for those who were fortunate enough to see his inner self it was a pleasure to know and love him. This memorial acknowledges only some of Peter’s achievements and the contribution he made not only to the sport of endurance riding but also to the lives he touched along the way. ▮ THE AUSTRALIAN ARABIAN HORSE NEWS 87

JUDY DIERKS DRESSAGE COMPETITION
Congratulations to our winner, Belinda Robertson and Ghost Whisperer
Unfortunately, just after winning the competition her lovely horse Ghost Whisperer damaged his knee. It will now be a good couple of months before she can claim her prize, but we’ll follow her lesson when the partnership is up and running again.
Something hasn’t quite gone to plan and you need to collect colostrum from your mare? Read this great tip kindly supplied by Ann Egan of North Point Farm Connecticut. Take a large syringe, 60 cc works well, and remove the plunger. Cut off the end that has the tip on it so that the plunger will fit into that end; in other words, just reverse the end it originally went into. (The end that you cut will have sharp edges and if you use that end to milk, your mare will be extremely unhappy with you so turning it is important!) Put the plunger into the end you cut off. To milk the mare, pull the plunger back about 1/2 inch to start the suction. Put the open end tightly against the teat and slowly pump the plunger back and forth. When you get about an inch or two of milk, pour it into a container and start over again. This works really well when trying to get that first all-important bit of colostrum into a newborn foal!
SURVIVING LAMINITIS: QUT LAUNCHES WORLDWIDE HORSE STUDY
THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF AMURATH SANTIAGO
Story by Kerri Grisham, written by Todd Farmer, illustrated by Marian Duncan
By Sandra Hutchinson It is a disease that has taken the life of Black Caviar’s brother, the most expensive yearling sold at public auction in Australia, but to the average horse owner laminitis is a killer that often strikes without warning. Dr Melody de Laat, from QUT’s Science and Engineering Faculty, said laminitis could affect up to 34 per cent of the equine population. “It is the second most common cause of death in domestic horses due to euthanasia and one of the most common reasons horse owners seek veterinary advice,” Dr de Laat said. “It strikes fear in the heart of any horse owner because it is difficult to treat and there is no cure.” In a bid to counter the deadly effects of laminitis, QUT is conducting a worldwide study to understand what predisposes horses to repeatedly fall prey to this chronic disease. “While we now know what causes laminitis, there are differing theories on how the damage occurs, which makes effective treatment difficult.”
