2016 ASHA Lifetime Achievement Honoree

Carol DiMaggio

3

Carol Di Maggio grew up in the small town of Occidental,

California and to this day she describes the day when

she was 10 years old and was given her first horse as the

happiest day in her life. The mare was a grade pinto she

named Comanche. She was often seen riding her mare

bareback around the small town. Many years later she was

hired by World Airways as a flight attendant and moved

to Walnut Creek, California, where she bought a house

and a horse in the same week. He was her first purebred,

a chestnut gelding named Bright Future (*Bright Diamond

x Rabdana), purchased with a friend in 1977. In 1985 another

gelding, Indybu, joined her small stable.

Although she had horses of indeterminate breeding

into her teens, Carol read the iconic books “King of the

Wind” by Marguerite Henry and the Black Stallion series

by Walter Farley and dreamed of one day owning a

purebred Arabian horse. Carol has always been a woman

who pursued her dreams until they became reality. Two

years later she kick-started her breeding program with the

purchase of foundation mare Seranado as a three-in-one

package. Seranado was a champion show horse known

for bridle-less stock horse exhibitions ridden by Bubbles

Hiller, and she was already a proven broodmare. From the

beginning, Carol concentrated on what some called “old

fashioned Arabians” with a high percentage of Crabbet

breeding. She said, “I really didn’t have any specific goals;

those came later.”

Ta’ez+// was Seranado’s first foal bred by Carol and

sired by international champion *Ralvon Elijah. Carol hired

dressage and event trainers Jane Mendelsohn and Teresa

Trull, who felt that Ta’ez with his 3 very good gaits had the

potential to be a very good dressage horse, and so began

his training. Carol had met and become very good friends

with Kat Walden who was the West Coast representative

for the Arabian Sport Horse Association, Inc. ASHAI was

one of the first organizations to support and present national

awards to Arabians

in sport.

Jane showed Teddy

to Third Level before

moving to Florida.

Carol has been quoted as saying, “When he won the

1997 USDF Musical Freestyle Championship at First Level,

I thought that would be his crowning glory.” Of course,

Chelsey Sibley, who trained and showed Teddy from Third

Level to Grand Prix, was still in the future. Ultimately, Teddy

and Chelsey won the Arabian Horse Association U.S. National

Champion Grand Prix title, earning other F.E.I. level

national championships on the way up.

From the beginning, Carol hired the best trainers available

for the disciplines in which her horses would be competing,

which took great perseverance and persuasion, as

the trainers she wanted did not usually want to train Arabians.

She had to endure quite a bit of criticism from other

Arabian horse owners for “stacking the deck” in favor of

her horses by using well-known dressage trainers such as

Creeky Routson, Elizabeth Britten Hendrix and Chelsey

Sibley at Arabian shows.

Carol always took her Arabians to USDF open dressage

shows, but she believed that they should compete at Arabian

shows, too, so that others would be inspired to try


sport horse disciplines. Because few Arabian horse shows

in the early 1990’s offered sport horse divisions, Carol organized

the Dressage divisions for her club for at least two

years in order to get them included in the annual show.

She joined the California-Nevada Arabian Sport Horse Association,

the first AHA associate club to specialize in sport

horses and served on the board for seven years, four of

those as vice president. As Teddy moved up the levels and

was ready for F.E.I., she “had to fight with the AHA Sporthorse

officials to hire a technical delegate to the shows.

They said they wouldn’t hire a T.D. just for my horse, but I

said if you don’t build it, they won’t come.”

While Teddy was growing up, Carol acquired a U.S. Top

Ten Halter stallion, Redwinds Chaparral++, finished his

Legion of Merit in Country English Pleasure, and then exhibited

him successfully in dressage to regional level with

Creeky Routson and Heidi Riddle. Bred to carefully selected

mares, he became a sire of outstanding endurance

horses in a limited career at stud.

When he matured, Teddy was bred to some of the

same mares but also to mares selected specifically for

him. Out of Teddy’s 22 offspring (one gelding from an outside

breeding was never registered), three earned Legion

of Merit in sport horse disciplines, and one earned a U.S.

National Championship at First Level. Two sisters out of a

¾ Trakehner mare are in the main mare book of the Oldenburg

Horse Breeders Society, a division of the German

Oldenburg Verband. Teddy offspring bred by Carol have

shown successfully in-hand, in dressage, over fences and

in endurance (1920 miles). One is an amateur owned-andridden

lower level event horse and field hunter. At least

three offspring were trained to harness.

Through diligent efforts, Carol had Teddy approved for

breeding by the American Warmblood Society, ISR/Oldenburg

N.A., the American Trakehner Association and the

German Oldenburg Verband through his scores from open

dressage up to PSG. Scores and videos were sent to Germany,

then the exciting news arrived that the breeding commission

had decided to accept his offspring out of warm-

4


lood mares only since he stands just 14.3 hands. He was

the first purebred Arabian in the USA to be accepted. One

son is double-registered Half-Arabian and ISR/ Oldenburg.

Four Teddy grandget have been registered by the OHBS.

Although in recent years, Carol has retired from active

Arabian breeding to concentrate on her very successful

Oldenburg breeding program, she still competes the two

youngest Teddy sons, both stallions. The purebred, Tarim

TZ, shown lightly by a teen-aged girl, has regional honors

in Dressage and a California Dressage Championship JTR.

Tzar TZ++, the Arab-Oldenburg, has several regional honors

for Hunter Hack Jr. Horse, Low Jumper, In-Hand, Sport

Horse under Saddle Jr. Horse and Dressage. He also competed

successfully at Beginner Novice Eventing. Carol continues

to pursue the goal of infusing additional Arabian

blood into the Oldenburg breed. Although GOV registry

officials were initially skeptical, they have come to respect

her commitment and understand that she plans generations

into the future.

2016 ASHA Horse of the Year

FCF Oberons Vanity

FCF Oberons Vanity (AF Vanitys Repeat x

BruMarBa Callisto), a 2006 CMK Arabian

stallion, owned and bred by Dawn Jones-Low of

Faerie Court Farm made history at the North

American 70 day Stallion Performance Test by

earning the highest score and highest placing of

any Arabian (or Arabianbred)

to have ever been

presented at the NA 70

day SPT. He was the first

Arabian to score over

100 points with 103.75

points placing him 5th

overall out of a field of

fourteen stallions.

The 70 day SPT has been

used in Europe and in

North America as a rigorous standardized

evaluation of the athletic ability of stallions to

assess potential for elite performance. Twentyfour

individual categories are scored on a 10

point scale in line with the scoring scale in

dressage tests and at studbook inspections.

Stallions are

evaluated over

the course of the

65 day intensive

training period for both “exterior qualities”

(athletic ability and physical qualities) and

“interior qualities”

(aspects of disposition

and trainability) by the

training director and

then scored again by a

guest judge for the final

5 day testing phase.

Many of the stallions in

the testing cohort were

sired by international

competitors including at

least one sired by an Olympic gold medal

winner in show jumping. (Notably, FCF Oberons

Vanity scored higher in the jumping than the

stallion with the Olympic sire!)

Owner Dawn Jones-Low reports that “Thom

and I were understandably very nervous about

how Obie would measure up as the only non-

Warmblood in the group. We were able to relax

a little when we got a report after the first day

that the training director cracked a big smile

when he saw FCF Oberons Vanity being

warmed-up on the lunge-line.

Obie quickly developed a fan club and was

cheered on by many of the other stallion

7


owners because they were so pleased to see

such an athletic, sound, sane Arabian holding

his own against top notch warmblood stallions.

During the final testing days one observer

commented, ‘Extraordinary stallion with a big

future ahead of him.’"

The training director awarded FCF Oberons

Vanity excellent scores including a 10 for

Character, 9s for Willingness and Rideability,

9.5 for Constitution, 8 for Trot, 8.5 for Cross

Country Gallop, and 8.5 for Cross Country

Jumping Technique.

he competed at 2nd

level with his trainer,

Catherine Waterman,

he won one of his

classes and was high

He is now solid at 3rd

level and will

compete with his

trainer at that level

this season with a

goal of competing at USDF Region 8 finals in the

open 3rd level division.

What a wonderful breed ambassador and

perfect choice as our Horse of the Year!

2017 Honorees:

FCF Oberons Vanity has been approved for

Studbook I in the highly respected Westfalen-

NA registry and is also approved for Shagya-

Arabian breeding by the North American

Shagya-Arabian Society. At his NASS

inspection, the judges were impressed by his

kind temperament, correct structure, and the

quality of his gaits and jumping ability. They

were *really* excited about his canter which

they awarded with a score of 9!

In 2017 Obie was shown in USDF shows with

the talented young rider, Emma Burnham, to

help showcase his rideability. The pair earned

good scores and placed well in a highly

competitive region. At the single show where

2016 ASHA Hall of Fame Honoree

Vicky Rich

Vicky Rich (born Victoria Ann Thenhause), began riding

at the age of 12. For Vicky, it was an instant addiction. Being

raised in Beverly Hills, CA, it was naturally horses she

was connected to.

She began riding dressage in the 1970s. In the early

1980s she fell in love with her first Arabian, a gelding

named Luke, sold to her by Louise Koch who was an international

dressage rider. From then on, Vicky was an advocate

and supporter of the Arabian breed, fighting tirelessly

for the talent of the Arabian breed to be recognized in the

Sport Horse world. She rode, rescued, trained, and bred

Arabians. Beginning in 2007, she and her daughter owned

She initiated a regional award program for the high scoring

purebred and high scoring Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian at

open dressage shows in southern California. Vicky also actively

served on various committees at AHA, and as President

of the Conejo Valley Arabian Horse Association.

In 1989 and 1993, Vicky and her Arabian gelding, Bilcos

HiPocket, went Top Ten at US Nationals in 2nd Level and

3rd Level Dressage respectively.

Vicky, with an equal passion for Arabians and dressage,

worked diligently with others to create the Sport Horse

National Championship Show. She volunteered for several

years at the show before being nominated to serve as a

Show Commissioner in 2007, a job she held until her death

in 2016.

and operated a riding school using three family owned

Arabians as lesson mounts, introducing countless people

not just to horses, but specifically to the Arabian horse.

Vicky soon became involved with IAHA, now AHA, in

Region 2 starting in the 1980s. She would attend the AHA

National Convention as a delegate nearly every year for

the rest of her life. Vicky eventually served on the board

in every role including two terms as Director of Region 2.

“I believe sport horse is the future of the Arabian breed

and that it is especially important to ‘do it right.’ I know I

have made a difference and want to continue doing so,”

she said upon having her position as a Commissioner renewed.

Vicky would not only see her dream of Sport Horse Nationals

come to fruition, but while serving as the Carriage

Driving Division Commissioner, entries increased each

year and the number of classes successfully grew from five

to eight. She also initiated the TAIL program at the show

and the popular daily amateur drawing.

Carriage Driving exhibitor Wendy Gruskiewicz says,

“Vicky was so incredibly helpful to carriage drivers each

year. In 2015, she personally called most of us to work out

a tight schedule. At 2017 SHN, she was gone, but not forgotten.

I was so fortunate to win the Vicky Rich Memorial

Award with my driving horse Riften++++//. I will treasure

this award and use it as inspiration moving forward.”

Region 2 friend and fellow competitor Dorann LaPerch

remembers, “Vicky worked tirelessly for the Arabian Sport

Horse, even before there was a Sport Horse division. She

was the driving force for keeping the East/West rotation

when talk was to keep it in the East forever. Here in Region

2 there was not a show that held Dressage or Sport Horse

where Vicky was not there helping. She was the scribe in

the in hand ring as well as the dressage ring. I will never

forget our Region 2 Sport Horse show in 2008 when temperatures

were over 106° and Vicky drove around with ice

water for the exhibitors.

“Vicky was the heart and soul of the Arabian Sport

Horse and was instrumental in bringing our division to

where it is today. She is truly missed.”

Sport Registry Inspections are held for mares and stallions to

consider them for breeding approval according to the particular

registry’s standards. Some registries also inspect foals as part

of the registration process. A few sport registries will also do

non-breeding evaluations for geldings and performance mares

to provide a standardized assessment of conformation,

movement, interior qualities, and performance potential.

Anglo

Arabians

An Anglo Arabian is a horse consisting of any actual creation of the Anglo Arabian breed. He bred the

combination of Arabian and Thoroughbred bay Arab stallion Massoud to two English Thoroughbred

lineage, with no more than 75% nor less than mares, Selim Mare and Deer, both of whom were imported

25% Arabian blood, with no other blood permitted. The

Anglo Arabian has the third oldest studbook in France and

is the third oldest breed in the world.

These horses were first bred in France in the 1836 under

to France in 1820. De Bonneval also crossbred in the opposite

direction – having bred the Arab mare Nichab to English

sires, but the results were not as good.

In 1833, an ordinance by Louis Phillipe created the

the control of the French

French Studbook where

National Stud Service. English

Thoroughbred mares, first imported

to France in the mid-

18th century, were crossed

with Arabians left in that

country after the defeat of the

Moslems.

Breeders from Normandy

created the Anglo Arabian as

early as 1750, although they

didn’t use these cross-breedings

as a breed unto itself. At

Duc des Deux Ponts (now called la Sarre), mares were bred

to Arabian and Turkish stallions to start a family and then

a specific breed. Although the success of these breedings

was apparent by 1775, it was still done on a limited basis.

During the Revolution and the Empire, British sires

were not able to be imported, but Napoleon returned from

his Egyptian campaign with a liking for Arabians, several of

which he brought back with him to the Pompadour stud.

In 1833, at Le Pin studfarm, M. de Bonneval began the

the English, Arab and Anglo

Arab horses could be found.

When, in 1840, M. Gayot

was made manager of Le

Pin Stud, his goal was to establish

a “French Thoroughbred”

family, chosen from

English and Arab stallions.

When he was made manager

of Pompadour in 1843, he

took his “family” with him.

Thus the Anglo Arabian

breed was born. It took several years for it to become established,

but its importance became apparent among the

famous French breeds of “Selle” horses. (The breed “Selle

Français” began as an Anglo Arabian genetically.)

By 1850, Anglo Arabian stallions were used for both

pure and cross-breeding, and by 1860, race competitions

exclusively for Anglo Arabians were popular. This helped

mold the breed since the race winners were often the favorite

sires, even for those not breeding for the track.

13


In 1880, the Anglo Arabian breed requirements were

formally established. To be called Anglo Arabian Thoroughbred,

the horse only needed 25% Arab blood. In

racing, they differentiated between 25% and 50% Arab

horses. (Later, they added the Anglo Arabian Complement

book, which could go down as far as 12.5% Arabian blood.)

Finally, in 1890, the Anglo Arabian breed was included

in a special part of the French Stud Book, as well as the English

Thoroughbred and the

Arabian Thoroughbred.

In the U.S., they are

registerable with the Anglo-Arabian

Horse Registry

of the Arabian Horse

Association (AHA) and are

then eligible for participation

in all AHA shows and

programs, including Futurities

and Sweepstakes.

They are unique in the

AHA registry as the only part-Arabian that doesn’t require

at least one purebred Arabian parent to be registered. Anglo

Arabians can be crossed with another Anglo, with a

Thoroughbred, or with an Arabian to produce the desired

traits of each breed, as long as the 75/25 guidelines are

followed.

The Arabian crosses so well with the Thoroughbred because

they actually come from the same genetic pool –

the three original foundation Thoroughbreds were of

Oriental blood.

The French have crossed Anglos back and forth generation

after generation, producing the consistency of the

breed’s characteristics. In North America, the majority of

Anglos are first generation crosses, as most people don’t

even consider the option of breeding Anglo to Anglo.

Today’s modern German warmblood breeds are indebted

to several key Anglo-Arabians, such as Matcho,

Inschallah, and Ramzes (go to page 55 for more on Ramzes), for

their contribution of refinement and athletic abilities,

and are hardly conceivable without

the influence of these sires.

The characteristics of the

Anglo Arabian made it the European

epitome of a war horse –

dexterity, strength and endurance.

Calvary horses became

outdated after World War I,

but with the advent of military

equestrian sports in the 1920’s,

and Anglos winning in all disciplines

at all levels, their popularity soared.

Anglo-Arabian Linon won the silver medal for

France in dressage at both the 1928 and 1932 Olympic

Games. Harpagon won the silver medal in dressage at

the 1948 Olympics and the bronze medal in 1952.

Aiglonne (above) won the gold medal in three day

eventing in 1948. Ali Baba won the 1952 gold medal in

show jumping. Artemor won the gold in showjumping

and team silver for Poland in the 1980 Olympics. Morgat

AC won a team jumping bronze


medal in 1988. More recently, Tamarillo earned a team silver

medal in eventing for Britain in 2004.

Anglo Arabians are still valued today for their incredible

athletic abilities, as seen by their successes at the highest

level of international competition. There are numerous

Anglos throughout the world competing at the European

Championships, World Equestrian Games, Pan Am Games,

and the 4* events. In the World Breeding Federation for

Sport Horses (WBFSH), the Anglo Arabian is consistently

listed in the top ten of their studbook ranking for eventing,

the most demanding of Olympic equestrian sports.

O’Connor in 1989. Lendon Gray campaigned Kitwell Consul++,

who earned 14 USDF All Breed Awards, competed

up to Grand Prix Level and won at the 1991 Olympic Selection

Trials.

Beverly Gray competed her Anglo gelding AA Omner

in endurance, logging 9,000 total miles. They earned 18

Best Condition awards and were in the Top Ten 98% of the

time. Omner was named Endurance Horse of the Millenium

by the AERC, and even had a Breyer model horse made of

him. Before he passed away in 2005, Omner was a therapeutic

riding horse for children.

The Anglo-Arabian in America is fairly young. Full-scale

breeding began here during World War II when purebred Endurance rider Matthew Mackay-Smith rode his Anglo

Arabians from Poland and Germany were placed under gelding, WC Freiheit, to 1450 lifetime miles, including 2

Remount Service loaned Arabian stallions out to breeding

farms, suggesting a cross with Thoroughbreds in order to

produce a large cavalry horse. The AHA purchased both the

Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian Horse Registries in 1951

when the U.S. Remount Service was discontinued.

AHA registration requirements were recently amended

to allow for importation of semen from Anglo and Thoroughbred

stallions from recognized foreign source registries,

as well as in-utero importations.

In the United States, although not nearly as popular as

in Europe, Anglo-Arabians have made their mark too. The

French-bred *Nos Ecus was named the 1989 The Chronicle

in eventing with Fischertakinou. France’s Tom Carlile has

three Anglos that he competes at 2* and 3*, as does Spain’s

Alberto Hermano Farras.

a solid foundation for all the other things I like to do with my horse.

What is your favorite memory with horses?

One of my favorite memories was with my Arabian mare Owl Creek Moniet. I was

about eight or nine and I was learning to jump. Moniet would take such good care of

me and would never take the jump unless I was balanced and ready. This one time,

photo provided by Sophia Stoernell

we took the jump, but I was not quite ready and ended up surprised that she jumped so big. I ended up launched onto her

neck. She immediately stopped (with me hugging onto her neck) while she patiently waited for someone to come to my

rescue and remove me from her neck. She always took great care of me with every ride and gave me such a great start.

What do you think makes Arabian bred sport horses special?

Arabian horses are so smart and beautiful. They are natural born athletes and make amazing partners.

.

If you had the chance to ride any horse in the world, who would it be and why?

If I could ride any horse in the world, I would love to ride Mirage V++++//. He is the sire to one of our horses and the

grand-sire to another. I have always been in awe of him and all that he has accomplished. He has done so many different

things and is good at everything. It would be an honor and dream to ride him someday.

What is your greatest achievement with an Arabian-bred sport horse?

My greatest achievement was this last year at AHA East Coast Championships when I won the Championship in a

Dressage class where I had to compete against adults. I had been working so hard and secretly had hopes I would win. It

was such a special accomplishment and made me so happy and proud of my horse.

Describe at least one goal for your involvement with Arabian-bred sport horses 5 years from now.

I would love to be able to show at AHA Sport Horse Nationals in the next few years in Dressage. I have been working

hard with my horse Pure Fame and will be starting to ride our gelding Miraggio (Mirage V++++ x Yankee Lady FHP) who

just went under saddle this past year. I know he also has a bright future and I hope to be a part of it.

Terminology of Araber and Araberrasse

by Linda Rudolphi

Shagya-Arabian-Arabian, Anglo-Arabian,

Anglo-Shagya-Arabian are terms we

have either heard or used. But if you

were quizzed, could you define or

explain the distinction of each? Add

translations between German,

Hungarian and English terms in to the

mix, and you can become confused

easily. So why do we care? Considering

the Anglo-Arabian and Anglo-Shagya

are quickly becoming more and more

recognized in the USA as

influential sport horses –a

“secret” known for centuries

in Europe--, it is important to

understand this magical cross.

To break it down to the basics, the term

"Anglo" is commonly used around the

world when referring to the

Thoroughbred breed. The Thoroughbred

is a horse breed best known for its use

in horse

racing.

Although

the word “thoroughbred” is sometimes

used to refer to any breed of purebred

horse, it technically refers only to the

Thoroughbred breed. The Thoroughbred

as it is known today is a hot-blooded

breed originally developed in 17th and

18th-century England, when native

mares were crossbred with imported

Oriental stallions of Arabian, Barb, and

Turkoman breeding.

The Shagya-Arabian combines the

qualities of the purebred Arabian with

selective breeding goals to develop the

ultimate Austro-Hungarian war horse

with increased bone with a rounder and

more substantial frame. In addition to

these physical qualities, the goal was a

horse with a tempered sensitivity and a

less reactive mind to serve as a calm,

steady mount under military stress.

[Originally, these predominantly Arabian

horses were referred to by the broadly

descriptive term Araber or Araberrasse

(of the Arabian "race" or breed,

indicating predominantly Arabian

ancestry). The term Araber in the US is

usually translated to and

thought of as a purebred

Arabian rather than a

horse of the "Arabian race". The world

renowned hippologist, Dr. Gramazky,

worked to change this terminology after

World War II to the more specific phrase

“Shagya-Arabian” because he wanted to

be sure that the Shagya-Arabians would

be recognized as a distinct breed from

the Arabian horses that were also

produced in Hungary.] 1

Up until this time the Shagya-Arabian

horses were also referred to as "Babolna

Arabians," "Anglo-Arabians", "Arabianbred",

"Magyar Arabs," and "Fajta

Arabians" as a few examples. Today the

name Shagya-Arabian is universally

used; it was chosen because a Syrian

purebred Arabian stallion named

"Shagya" is in virtually every pedigree

as an ancestor.

1 Wikipedia contributors. "Shagya Arabian." Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Oct.

10, 2017. Web.

53


[The Shagya-Arabian breed is

recognized with a special status within

the World Arabian Horse Organization.

In 1978, WAHO stated that the Shagya-

Arabian was bred pure under the

supervision of the Babolna and

Topolcianky breeding guidelines

with strict culling. Therefore,

due to these records and

careful selection they were designated

to be termed "purebred Shagya-

Arabian", a distinct Arabian-bred

bloodline group.

However, WAHO also was clear that

"purebred" in this case means that the

horses have been bred "pure"

among themselves and are not to be

confused with the term "purebred

Arabian". Due to the meticulous recordkeeping

of the Hungarian State Studs,

Shagya-Arabian pedigrees can be traced

to before the founding of most of the

world's Arabian registries.] 2

Of course, many are familiar with the

purebred Arabian, its rich

history and documented

pedigrees back in

time. With a distinctive head shape

and high tail carriage, the Arabian is

one of the most easily recognizable

horse breeds in the world. It is also one

of the oldest breeds, with archaeological

evidence of horses in the Middle East

that resemble modern Arabians dating

back 4,500 years.

Throughout history, Arabian horses have

spread around the world by both war

and trade, used to improve other breeds

by adding speed, refinement,

endurance, and strong bone. Today,

2 Wikipedia contributors. "Shagya Arabian." Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Oct.

10, 2017. Web.

Arabian bloodlines are found in almost

every modern breed of riding horse.

So why does this matter? In parts of

Europe the term “Anglo-Arabian” has

been variously used in the past to refer

to either a Thoroughbred crossed

with a purebred Arabian, an

"Araber" or part-Arabian, or a

Shagya-Arabian. Following the official

designation of the Shagya-Arabian as a

distinct breed, pedigree records are

being corrected to recognize the

difference in an Anglo-Arabian vs. an

Anglo-Shagya. Horses once recorded as

"Araber" are now being clarified and

recognized for their distinct heritage.

Each of these breeds contributes its own

special characteristics when used

throughout Europe as improver crosses

within the Warmblood studbooks. The

Thoroughbreds are known for their

agility, speed, and spirit. The purebred

Arabian is known for its purity of

pedigree, heart, and endurance. The

Shagya-Arabian is valued for possessing

the stamina and heart of the Arabian in

a larger framed

horse

purpose

bred first for cavalry use and later as a

sport horse. The Anglo-Arabians and

Anglo-Shagyas offer hybrid phenotypes

that blend Thoroughbred power and

speed with qualities derived from

Arabian or Shagya heritage.

The Arabian Sport Horse Alliance has a “big tent”

philosophy that welcomes horses and ponies of any of the

“Araberasse” –Arabians, Shagya-Arabians, Anglo-

Arabians, Anglo-Shagyas, and --in recognition of the value

of Arabian based lineages in sport registry breeding --any

Arabian-bred sport horse or pony of at least 25% Arabian

or Shagya lineage within 3 generations.

Ramzes – A Sire of the Century

The Use of Thoroughbred and Shagya-Arabian to Develop the Ultimate Sporthorse.

By Donna J. Coss and Linda Rudolphi

Genetically, the Thoroughbred x Arabian

and the Thoroughbred x Shagya-Arabian-

Arabian are considered F1 crossbreds (F1

hybrids). Through selective breeding F1

Anglo-Arabians and F1 Anglo-Shagya-

Arabians are both predictable hybrid

phenotypes that breed true to their

physical attributes and consistently

contribute desirable traits when

outcrossed. Through generations of

consistent breeding of phenotypes within

the individual breeds; the Thoroughbred,

the purebred Arabian and the purebred

Shagya-Arabian have been proven to

produce a highly desirable and distinct

type of sport horse when the F1 Anglo-

Arabian and Anglo-Shagya-Arabian

crosses are purposely bred.

An example of one of the most successful

F1 crosses between an Arabian-bred horse

and a Thoroughbred is the Anglo-Shagya

stallion Ramzes, who is often referred to

as a Century Stallion. In 1937 Ramzes

was born in Poland, his sire was the

successful

Thoroughbred

racehorse

stallion

Rittersporn,

the grand-son

of the French

Thoroughbred

jumping sire Le

Sancy. Along

with numerous

internationally

successful

progeny, the

Rittersporn

daughter,

Warzawianka

represented

Poland at the 1936 Olympics. The dam of

Ramzes, Jodi, of the famous Amurath-Weil

bloodlines, was a Shagya-Arabian mare

that was often referred to as an Anglo-

Arabian. Her pedigree includes the

purebred Arabian stallion Bairactar, one of

the most influential purebred stallions in

the breeding of international sport horses.

Jordi's pedigree is a meticulous match of

purebred and Shagya-Arabian lines of the

great Hungarian state studs at

Mezöhegyes and Radautz.

How did a Polish stallion, born on the

estate of the Countess Marie Plater-

Zyberk in Poland, become a Century

Stallion? At the age of two, following the

occupation of Poland by the German

army, Ramzes stood at the regional stud

farm of Janov Podlaski where he was a

popular riding and carriage horses. With

the Russian forces advancing, the Polish

studs that were under German occupation

were relocated to Germany and Ramzes

was one of the horses that crossed the

border. After the war, Ramzes became the

property of Baron von Nagel who bred

sport horses at his property in Vornholz,

Westphalia.

It was soon

evident

Ramzes

consistently

contributed

many desirable

traits to his

progeny. He

sired 195

offspring from

mares of

varying

quality. Most of

these were in

the upper 25th

percentile of

national

competition. Doing so in both the

disciplines of jumping and dressage is

quite remarkable. Ramzes passed on his

baroque conformation type, lending more

55


suppleness and making it easier to

perform the high degree of the collection

essential for the higher level movements

in dressage. This also contributed a

roundness of frame that provides a higher

more swan-like neck set to enable a horse

to lift its knees higher, and to give a

rounder frame for more bascule over the

jump, and slightly more natural break at

the knee for a tighter front end over

jumps. Ramzes decisively improved on

the old fashioned, tremendously powerful,

but high headed, flat backed jumping

form. All of this Ramzes provided, plus a

larger eye, more expressive face, rounder

muscling, denser bone and increased

endurance. Ramzes was homozygotic grey

- all of his progeny were grey. He was

known as a producer of great broodmares

and much of his influence carries on

through these grand old mares. The

mares Folia, Vase (Holsteiner), and Retina

were three of the most noteworthy.

Examples of his influence include:

CAPITOL I - one of the most important

stallions in the history of the Holsteiner

Verband, his legacy being an outstanding

number of descendants performing on the

international stage. His paternal and

maternal grand-dams are the Ramzes

daughters Retina and Vase.

CAVALOR CUMANO, grandson of Capitol I,

was the winner of the 2006 World

Equestrian games in Aachen, completing

ten tough rounds with only one fence left

down!

MONTEVIDEO - Holsteiner by Marlon xx

out of mare by Roman by Ramzes.

Montevideo was on the German Gold

medal team and place 6th at the 1984

Olympics as a Grand Prix jumper.

Regarded as the most beautiful horses in

the Olympics.

CHRONOS - by Chrysos by Condus by

Ramzes. Famously pictured being ridden

without tack during an exhibition during

the 1984 Olympics. In 1985 Chronos was

Reserve Champion in Prix St George at

the USET Regional finals.

LAVINIA - Trakehner by Condus by

Ramzes. In 1990 Lavinia was 15th at Prix

St George in the USDF Horse of the Year

rankings. She was ridden by Hilda

Gurney.

UNANIMOUS – Dutch Warmblood by

Rigolotto by Ramzes. 1990 WEG in

Stockholm ridden by Betsy Steiner.

REMUS – a Westfalen Ramzes son, won

individual dressage silver and team gold

at the Tokyo Olympics.

RADETSKY - Ramzes son, established in

Westphalia a line of champions

SALUUT II - The 1989 AHSA jumper of the

year, has Ramzes on both sides of his

pedigree.

Once in a while, a horse comes along like

Ramzes. He was one of the most

spectacular horses of the 20th century in

many ways and his influence is still

evident today. At the 2004 WEG Grand

Prix jumpers with Ramzes found in 48%

pedigrees. Despite the fact Ramzes did

not stand at stud for many years, having

only four complete breeding seasons, it

has been said that without Ramzes

German Warmblood breeding would not

be what it is today! After just four seasons

at stud he is remembered as the origin

the famous R line; “R” is for Ramzes. His

influence founded one of the great stallion

lines of Holsteiner show jumpers and

Westphalian dressage horses. When bred

for purpose and using selective breeding

criteria the Anglo-Arabian and Anglo-

Shagya-Arabian have been successful

through the years and have brilliant future

ahead.

A “Century Sire” is one that has an outsized impact that persists for a century or more.

Ramzes certainly has earned that title!

Breeding the mare - first steps

By Jos Mottershead & Kathy St. Martin

"I want to breed my mare!" It's an expression

often heard early in the breeding season and is

then followed by the question "what do I need

to do?". Theoretically, the answer should be

simple, but in practice that often proves to not

be the case.

Without getting into the actual selection

procedure for the type of mare to be bred -

which is a separate subject entirely and will vary

from breed to breed - we can certainly look at

different age groups as an initial consideration:

Age

The younger mare - younger meaning under the

age of 12 - is likely to present the least number

of issues in establishment and maintenance of

pregnancy. It must be kept in mind that at the

younger end of the spectrum, the filly must

have started cycling regularly and be showing

adequate maturity for motherhood. If it is felt

that the filly is not yet adequately mature to

maintain her own pregnancy, one can always

consider flushing an embryo for transfer to an

appropriate recipient mare. When dealing with

a mare closer to the 12 year-old end, one

should consider the prior parental status. If this

is a maiden mare - with the caveat that some of

the issues relating to older mares discussed

below may start to be seen - she is going to

more likely be an easier mare in which to

establish pregnancy. If however she has had

multiple pregnancies, it may be worth

considering that she may possibly have some

"wear and tear" on her reproductive tract which

could cause problems. I liken the mare's

reproductive tract to tires on your car. If the car

is 10 years old but has only 5,000 miles on it,

then the tires may well still be in good

condition; on the other hand, if the car is 6

years old but has 150,000 miles on it, the tires

are likely to be worn out. The same therefore

may be the case with a mare - she can be a

younger mare that's had multiple foals and has

more "wear" than a slightly older mare that's

had no foals. The optimal age group for easy

breeding will be found with mares between the

ages of about 4 and 12.

Once the mare surpasses the age of 12 - and

particularly if a maiden - it is generally agreed

that issues are more likely to be present which

can make conception and/or pregnancy

maintenance more difficult. One of these issues

can be related to the ability of the cervix to

open adequately to allow clearance of

breeding-related fluids - discussed in greater

detail below as it may also be seen in other age

groups. We present an outline of other

problems which may be encountered when

breeding mares in this age group in our article

entitled "breeding the older maiden mare".

60


When the mare reaches her 20s, both the

safety (for her) and ease of breeding are often

debated. As a general rule, for a mare with no

obvious significant problems, the answer to the

question "when should I stop breeding her" is

"when she will no longer get pregnant". Clearly

if there are physical problems present, then

they should be taken into account. The answer

may be different and obvious, but in the

absence of problems, anthropomorphism

should not become a factor. It should be

remembered that in the wild mares continue to

breed until they no longer conceive. In fairness,

it must be noted that there is a very slight

increased risk of a uterine artery rupture in the

older mare, but it should be underlined that it is

slight. Certainly, the decision to not breed an

older mare may be made if she has experienced

a difficult foaling which "takes a lot out of her" -

but conversely some older mares who have

been life-long broodmares can be distinctly

unhappy if they don't have a foal of their own!

Evaluations

Basic - and Cheap

"Cheap and easy" evaluations are always a

favoured starting point, and a very simple one is

to look at the mare's overall physical condition.

An excessively fat (obese) mare will be more

likely to be suffering from metabolic issues such

as PPID (pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction,

also known as "Cushing's syndrome") or a

precursor thereof. These conditions may also

affect the mare hormonally, with lower

pregnancy rates as a result. The opposite end of

the scale - the excessively thin mare - is also

more likely to present a challenge, as often

these mares fail to cycle (especially if they

already have a foal at foot) and have a higher

incidence of early embryonic death ("EED").

Rectifying these two ends of the physical

spectrum prior to attempting to breed the mare

will result in higher success rates and less

frustration. If dealing with a mare that has not

been bred repeatedly unsuccessfully in the

previous season, another good starting point is

to consider her reproductive conformation - lift

her tail! An external perineal conformation has

been shown to have an effect on likelihood of

pregnancy establishment [1]. If the perineal

region is angled significantly off the vertical, it

may suggest this could be a mare who is going

to have problems getting and/or maintaining a

pregnancy. It is important to understand that

the "tipped" mare is not only more likely to be

contaminated externally with feces, but that

her internal reproductive tract may also have

changed position, predisposing and leading to

greater internal problems. It may be a moneysaving

decision to not breed the mare with very

poor reproductive conformation - however, this

decision would also rule out a significant

number of mares, so it is often not considered

an eliminating factor, but merely a warning of

possible problems.

Cytology, Culture and Biopsy

If it is decided the mare is to be bred, the next

aspect to consider is uterine hygiene and

health. There are several options here, which

produce varying degrees of diagnostics. The

basic evaluation is the culture and cytology -

note the cytology, the significance of which we

discuss in our article about the importance of a

cytology smear. These two combined

evaluations determine with variable accuracy

the presence (or absence) of an organism, and

whether an organism, if present, is pathogenic

in nature. An endometrial swab culture alone

will not reliably produce this information,

resulting in a high incidence of either missed

organisms or organisms identified as being

pathogenic, when that is not the case. Indeed,

even the sampling device can have an impact

on results! A double-guarded device is

preferable [2], and a cytology brush has been

found to be superior to a swab for the

61


harvesting of cells for a cytology smear [3], [4].

These devices are the most likely to be found in

general practice, but it has been determined

that a low-volume lavage has superior qualities

for identification of mares suffering from

endometritis [5]. This latter technique involves

introduction of 60 ml of sterile physiological

saline into the uterus, then the capture of same

with evaluation of the sediment after either

centrifugation or settlement. An alternative

lavage method involves introduction of 250 ml

of Lactated Ringer's Solution, with capture of a

minimum of 150 ml [6]. A more advanced

diagnostic is the combination of an endometrial

biopsy and culture - the culture sample being

taken from the biopsy sample itself. This will

produce not only the same degree of accuracy

regarding surface cells from the uterus as with

the culture and cytology [7], but also an

evaluation of the cellular condition of the

endometrium, allowing an estimation of

likelihood of production of a live foal [8].

Confusion may arise when faced with such an

array of diagnostic possibilities as to which to

use, but basic common sense answers the

question well. The large breeding operation

with many of their own mares will statistically

see, on average, 60% become pregnant on the

first cycle with no diagnostic involvement.

Clearly, performing these diagnostics on all

mares pre-breeding in a large herd will result in

a significant waste of funds. With the large

operation therefore, it is common that mares

are bred on the first cycle with no or minimal

diagnostics. Diagnostics only being introduced

on subsequent cycles for mares which either did

not get pregnant or lost the pregnancy. For the

single (or low number) mare-owner however, it

makes good financial sense to perform the

diagnostics right from the start,

before attempting to breed. So

which to start with? The fastest and

simplest diagnostic is the cytology

smear. If inflammatory cells are

identified, that indicates there is an

issue within the uterine

environment which requires

attention prior to breeding. Most will couple

the cytology smear with a swab for culture

(swab first, smear second if two different

samples are used). Treatment can then be

initiated based upon the results. Another

advantage of a cytology smear is that it may

identify yeast presence - something which may

not show up in a bacterial culture. If a mare is

unsuccessfully bred for several cycles, having

first been evaluated using a culture and

cytology, it may be worth considering the use of

the low-volume lavage as the next diagnostic

tool, although more experienced reproductive

veterinarians may have used it initially. The

ultimate diagnostic in this category is the

endometrial biopsy and culture. One could

argue that it might be worth using the biopsy

initially, however the majority of mares will not

require it and the cost is greater than the other

methods. The pre-breeding situations most

likely to warrant a biopsy and culture are mares

who have not become pregnant after several

breeding cycles; the older barren mares; or

mares that have lost a pregnancy after 40 days.

Other situations exist where a biopsy and

culture are recommended (for example when

dealing with a mare post-pyometra), however

these are outside the scope of this article. As

the endometrial biopsy evaluates the cellular

condition, it can be a very valuable diagnostic

with mares which have failed to become

pregnant or which have repeatedly lost their

62


pregnancies at certain stages. The equine

placenta does not start to form until around 40

days of pregnancy, so prior to that formation,

nutritional transfer cannot be through the

placenta. Between about 40 and 140 days of

gestation, the placental formation occurs, and

nutritional transfer gradually changes to a route

via the placenta. If pregnancy loss occurs during

this time frame, it may indicate a problem with

placental nutrient transfer, suggesting possible

endometrial problems. One such group of

problems is related to fibrotic changes of the

endometrium or its glands. Those changes can

be identified in the biopsy sample. If such a

problem is identified, improvement of biopsy

score and pregnancy rates may be achieved

with the use of an intra-uterine lavage of

dimethyl-sulfoxide ("DMSO") [9].

Cervix

An evaluation which is of importance

particularly in multiparous mares (those having

had foals previously) is a manual evaluation of

the cervix. This is best carried out during

diestrus, when the cervix should be tightly

closed and any damage such as tears or scarring

can be more easily identified [10]. The cervix

however needs to relax when the mare is in

estrus and a failure to do so can result in failed

pregnancy establishment or a higher incidence

of EED due to accumulated uterine fluid. We

discuss this later in the article.

The suggestion that the cervix be evaluated for

damage during diestrus raises the question of

when to perform other diagnostics such as

swabs or biopsy. With regard to swabs, there

are two schools of thought, both of which

present valid arguments. The first argument

suggests that sampling should be performed

during diestrus, as any bacterial presence in the

uterus when the cervix is closed suggests a

problem; the second suggests that sampling

performed during estrus when the cervix is

relaxed is mechanically easier, and that a

significant bacterial presence at that stage

suggests that the mare's own uterine defense

mechanisms - which are elevated during estrus -

are unable to deal with the issue. This second

thought process also argues that in the event of

uterine contamination during sampling - as the

uterine defense mechanisms are elevated

owing to estrus - any accidentally-introduced

organism will be dealt with by the mare’s own

response. From a practical perspective, the

visiting practitioner has a 1-in-3 chance of

arriving during estrus if the mare's cycles are

unknown so commonly sampling is performed

regardless of cycle stage. If the sample is taken

during diestrus, it should be followed with

prostaglandin treatment to induce estrus and

elevate uterine immune function in case of

contamination during sampling. The timing of

biopsy sampling presents a slightly different

picture, as ideally the retrieved sample should

most closely mimic that which would be found

during pregnancy. This would be during diestrus

in the non-pregnant mare, when progesterone

levels are elevated. A good pathologist however

will be able to differentiate and offer results

regardless of sampling timing. It is often asked if

the sampling should be performed before the

start of the cyclical breeding season - in some

cases at the end of the previous year's breeding

season before the onset of winter anestrous.

While a biopsy sample is less likely to change

during the winter period - although not

impossible - a culture and cytology most

certainly could have results differing from the

prior season. Consequently, it is typically

recommended that diagnostic work be related

to year in which the intended breeding is to

take place. Concern is periodically voiced over

the prospect of performing an endometrial

biopsy in close conjunction to breeding.

Research has actually demonstrated that

performing a biopsy within as few as 6 days

prior to breeding has no impact on pregnancy

63


ates [11]. A biopsy performed at the very

beginning of the breeding estrus period, or on

the prior estrus, should therefore not be a

matter for concern. The only issue with

breeding on the same cycle as that which a

biopsy sample is taken is that the results may

not be received prior to the breeding.

Ultrasound

Something else commonly identified during a

pre-breeding or breeding-soundness

examination is the presence of uterine or

endometrial cysts. These are typically identified

with the use of ultrasound although if large

enough may be identified during palpation.

While some research[12], [13] has suggested a

lower pregnancy rate in mares with cysts, it is

important to consider that other contributory

factors may also be present. Those other factors

with placental ability later in the pregnancy, or

which are located in the region of the corpuscornual

junction. This latter instance may cause

interference with "fixation" of the conceptus

around day 16. Older mares will be more likely

to have cysts, but it is important to remember

that older mares are also prone to other issues

likely to reduce pregnancy rates. Failure to

establish pregnancy in this group should not

immediately be blamed upon cysts presence -

indeed, the cysts may be a harbinger of

underlying problems and not an issue

themselves. Cysts, unless sized or placed as

above, should not be an immediate cause for

concern, and a good rule for cysts is "if they are

not bothering you, don't bother them". It is not

uncommon for mares with sections of uterus

that per ultrasound look almost like Swiss

Cheese, to achieve and maintain pregnancies

may be a greater cause for lower pregnancy

rates than the cysts. There is no doubt that

there are some cysts which will reduce

pregnancy rates. These will typically include

cysts which are large enough or positioned in

such a manner as to prevent adequate closure

of the cervix, sufficient movement of the

conceptus throughout uterus (particularly

between days 10-14 post-ovulation), cysts

which are so numerous as to cause interference

with no problem! In the event that removal is

deemed necessary, this can be achieve by

various means, including manual ablation, snare

electrocoagulation via hysteroscopy,

endometrial curettage, puncture by uterine

biopsy punch, puncture or aspiration during

hysteroscopic examination, repeated lavage

with warm saline, or laser surgery [14], [15],

[16], [17], [18]. One issue that is distinctly

related to cyst presence is a potential inability

64


to identify a pregnancy. In many cases there are

no features with which to differentiate between

some cysts and an early pregnancy, save that

the pregnancy will grow over the course of

several days and develop a heartbeat, whereas

the cyst will not. Owing to this annoying

similarity, it is essential to map and record the

position and size of cysts during the prebreeding

evaluation. In some instances cysts

may not be similar in shape to a pregnancy, but

so numerous as to be impossible to clearly

identify an early (12-14 days) pregnancy and

definitive identification can only be achieved at

a point slightly later - typically >19 days when a

heartbeat is visualized - by which point the

success of twin reduction will be lowered.

Another important problem sometimes found

during a pre-breeding or breeding soundness

evaluation is free fluid presence in the uterus.

This can be indicative of a variety of problems,

including pathogenic presence, delayed uterine

clearance issues and/or failure of cervical

relaxation. It may also be related to

endometrial changes such as fibrosis [19],

particularly in older mares. Uterine fluid

presence is something which requires further

investigation, and it is recommended that

mares not be bred without suitable treatment

to either resolve the cause (if pathogenic or

cervical in nature) or the presence itself (if

related to clearance issues). There are a couple

of very rough but useful "rules of thumb"

regarding uterine fluid when it is identified per

ultrasound: the first is that a clear "black" fluid

suggests a lack of irritant (pathogen or other),

while white specks in the fluid suggest

inflammatory cell presence (and hence an

irritant). While this is not an absolute, it is a

useful starting point. If the fluid is identified

early in the breeding process, use of the uterine

sample culture and cytology or biopsy and

culture as described above may be of assistance

in identifying the cause; the second rule relates

to depth of fluid: if less than 2 cm in depth, use

of an ecbolic (oxytocin or prostaglandin) is likely

to be adequate to achieve clearance, whereas if

it is greater than 2 cm in depth additional

treatment with a uterine lavage is likely to be

required [20], [21]. We discuss uterine fluid and

the use of ecbolics in our article about oxytocin

use during breeding. Lack of cervical relaxation

during estrus may also be a cause or

contributory factor relating to free uterine fluid

and requires attention. Causes for this may

include adhesions, fibrotic or scar tissue

presence, or low estrogenic levels in the mare.

There are various methods available to

encourage relaxation, which may prove more or

less effective depending upon cause.

Techniques include manually dilating the

cervix [22]; systemic treatment with exogenous

estrogens; topical treatment with prostaglandin

E1 cream ("Misoprostol") [23] or Buscopan [24];

or acupuncture [24].

65


Other Issues

Pooling, Windsucking and Caslick's

Other problems which might be identified

during the pre-breeding evaluation and which

should be considered more serious - potentially

to the point of not being desirous of breeding

the mare - include urovagina (urine "pooling")

and pneumovagina ("windsucking"). While

these conditions may be resolved in some cases

with the use of a urethral extension in the

former or a Caslicks's procedure in the latter,

the added expense and reduced rate of

successful outcome may make a decision not to

breed the mare a wise investment. Of the two,

the latter (pneumovagina), if not too serious, is

the one most likely to respond favorably to the

cheaper Caslick's procedure. Ensuring absence

of uterine pathogens in these mares prior to

breeding is of increased importance owing to

the predisposition of such presence due to the

problems.

Choice of Facility

A final point which is worthy of consideration is

the selection of a suitable facility to perform the

breeding work. In this, the internet and fellow

local-breeders can be of assistance for

references, as well as some of the following

"markers". It is important to consider that there

have been many advances in the field of equine

reproduction, particularly in the last 20 years,

however it is a very small - and only seasonal -

part of a veterinary business' work.

Consequently updating the knowledge level

may be overlooked in favor of another field

which could produce year-round income, such

as lameness. This of course can lead -

particularly in situations where one is dealing

with a problem mare or a more intricate

breeding situation such as with frozen semen -

to a disappointing and expensive outcome for

the mare owner if pregnancy establishment is

not achieved due to lack of knowledge or

ability. Some practices which suggest a lack of

updated knowledge include the use - without

reason - of a full dose of prostaglandin to shortcycle

a mare, rather than a micro-dose which

prevents unpleasant side-effects for the mare

(sweating, cramping etc.); an inability or

reluctance to perform a cytology smear in

conjunction with a uterine swab culture; lack of

adequate sanitary practices regarding

insemination; or use of a "regular" rubberplungered

syringe for insemination. While

pregnancies may be established even if these

situations do occur, they are strongly suggestive

of a lack of updated knowledge of the field, and

consequently a greater risk of lower pregnancy

rates. While any one of those practices may not

negatively impact the pregnancy rate of a

young, healthy mare, in the instance in

particular of dealing with problem mares,

attention to detail is critical for success.

Our Warmblood crosses are bred with the goal of them being highly competitive

on the open circuit in addition to the Arabian breed shows. We allow our young

horses plenty of time to fully mature before their riding career begins (usually at

age 5). This along with excellent breeding contributes to long performance

careers. We currently have several horses competing at USDF shows at the FEI

Levels. We have been breeding Warmblood crosses now for 26 years. We are

having great success with them as well as the second generations of the cross, the

3/4 Arabian 1/4 Hanoverian.

We stand several stallions here at the farm - the Pure Polish, 6 time AHA National

Top Ten Sport Horse Stallion Elikzir++/, AHA U.S National Champion and National

Producer-The Terminatorr+ (Hanoverian cross), 10 time AHA U.S. National Top Ten

LA Legacy In Black+++//, our Pure Polish- and 5 time AHA U.S. National Top Ten

Karnavaal++. We offer on farm breeding and Transported Semen.

We always have top quality, National Caliber horses available.

Cara’s love of horses became evident at a young age. She has always

soaked up any equine related knowledge available to her. Since day

one, she has spent countless hours in the barn and the arena.

She firmly believes that the best lessons are taught directly from the

horse. Cara’s teaching and training methods are based upon being a

translator for each horse to better help their humans understand

them and their specific needs. The natural beauty of classical

dressage has helped her in doing so.

At Cara Blanchard Training we offer a safe, enjoyable and

educational environment for students of all ages and experience

levels. We are excited to offer a variety of programs, from private

lessons, to clinics, clubs and camps.

All of our lesson horses have been professionally trained and meet

our strict safety standards. They are pleasant to work with and truly

enjoy their jobs as teachers and ambassadors. They look forward to

the time they spend with their students. We teach young and young

at heart how to relax and enjoy these beautiful creatures. We offer

many different learning opportunities and tailor our lessons to each

rider’s specific needs.

Faerie Court Farm is a small scale Arabian breeding program located in beautiful

Addison County Vermont. The first generation of Faerie Court Farm bred foals

are now demonstrating their trainability and athleticism under saddle. As a

breeding farm, the primary focus is on breeding, raising, and training with

participation in clinics, schooling shows, and rated sport disciplines venues.

Our home-bred Arabian stallion, FCF Oberons Vanity, is the highest scoring

Arabian-bred stallion ever presented at the North American 70 day Stallion

Performance Test where he exhibited impressive performance aptitude for both

dressage and eventing topped off by exceptional interior scores. In 2017 he was

ridden by a young rider at USDF shows where they scored and placed well. FCF

Oberons Vanity is being carefully developed for upper level work and will show

with his trainer at 3 rd level in 2018 in the highly competitive USDF Region 8.

Faerie Court Farm’s breeding horses are selected for soundness of mind and

body and for clear talent for dressage and/or jumping from CMK lineages with

generations of purpose breeding for high rideabiliy, soundness, longevity, and

sport discipline ability.

Sport horse breeding requires dedication to a long term vision; we are

committed to continuing to improve upon a solid foundation of generations of

Arabians purpose bred for athleticism and trainability. Please feel free to

Golden Oaks Arabians & Warmbloods is a small breeding program nestled in the

foothills of Northern California. Denise Cossuto & Tamara Torti share a passion

for producing Arabian bred sport horses with the amateur owner in

mind. Coming from endurance & dressage backgrounds their vision is unique,

and the resulting foals have been even better than we had dreamed.

The foundation of the program is our mares. The Hanoverian approved

Arabian, Caraechstrodinair, is our cornerstone mare; she continually produces

foals that exceed our expectations. She is the only Arabian mare to receive a

"10" at a Hanoverian Inspection and produce a Top Foal at an Inspection. Her

offspring are just now making their way into the show ring with AHA National

and Regional Championships in SHIH, SHUS & Dressage. Her Champion offspring

include Excepchanel & Magicaul Powers with Landinair, French Rivi Aira GOA &

Wild Ivy GOA waiting in the wings.

Our Arabian-bred and Warmblood mares are selected for characteristics that

lend themselves to producing horses well suited for endurance &

dressage. Good minds and trainability are high on our list, along with correct

gaits that show the expression needed to be competitive at the open shows &

on the endurance trails. We always try to have young prospects for sale and

sometimes have riding horses or mares available.

Performance Horses For Sale?

Roze Arabians Ltd. grew out of my personal love and admiration for the Arabian

as a versatile performance horse. Once I became the owner of my own Egyptian

Arabian I was also introduced to their high degree of trainability and their desire

to join into a working partnership in any under saddle discipline. My discipline

of choice is dressage and my Egyptian partners have eagerly become zealous

dance partners. Not only are our horses athletically talented, but they truly

enjoy the mental challenges that arise in the dressage arena. Once in the arena

they take pleasure in showing off their skills and give their hearts to the

endeavor.

The Egyptian has developed into more than just a beautiful horse to be shown

on the line. Modern Egyptians have proven themselves to be wonderful trail

mounts, capable jumpers and loving family horses who know how to take care

of the youngest family members. The ability and desire to bond with their

human counterparts is truly innate within the breed. The ancestors of today’s

Egyptians lived alongside their owners in the tents and pavilions of the Bedouin

people. These early horses were bred to be fierce in battle, yet gentle and

tractable in the stable. I believe these qualities of bravery and trainability are

what make the modern Egyptian the perfect mount for anyone looking to have

a long and trusted relationship with their equine partner.

I founded Roze Arabians Ltd. with the intent to produce Egyptian Arabians who

possess all the qualities of their ancestors and with talent and durability to meet

the demands of today’s sport horse enthusiasts. We strive to find horses that

are versatile and able to excel in multiple disciplines Arabian was originally

intended and incorporate them into our breeding program.

WineGlass Farm has been dedicated to the equine business for over 40 years. As

natural athletes WineGlass horses have cross-discipline backgrounds ranging from

polocrosse, distance riding, dressage, jumping and even some calf roping and

reining! Our foundation mares have been performance tested with a minimum of

500 distance riding miles. Soundness, trainability, willing attitude and competitive

ability are genetically determined – all criteria we have used to select our

broodmares.

The addition of our Shagya-Arabian stallion *Budapest in 1990 complemented our

foundation mares’ genetic potential. *Budapest brought excellent bone, frame,

movement and personality to the WineGlass program. Today *Budapest progeny

offer the same qualities of toughness, stamina, rideability and courage that made

the ShA horses admired and desired so many years ago on the famous military stud

farms of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. *Budapest is one of the few ShA stallions in

the U.S. to have easily completed the stallion performance standards established by

the International Shagya-Arabian Society (ISG). *Budapest is still the only purebred

Shagya-Arabian stallion to receive USDF All-Breed recognition.

WineGlass Farm has made one of the biggest importations of new genetics for the

US Shagya-Arabian breed in decades. Frozen semen from four outstanding

European stallions is now in the US. The purebred Arabian Russian racing stallion

Pagur has a limited number of doses available. He is approved for Shagya-Arabian,

Austrian WB, Arabian and Trakehner breeding. Doses of the dynamic Shagya-

Arabian stallion Dartan offers completely new ShA genetics to the US & Canada in

addition to an excellent sporthorse choice for Arabian mares.

FCF Oberons Vanity made history in 2015 when -as the only non-warmblood in

the cohort- he finished 5th out of a field of 14 stallions in the 70 day Stallion

Performance Test. He was the highest scoring and highest placing Arabian or

Arabian-bred stallion EVER to attend the North American 70 day SPT! His scores

included a 10 for Character, 9 for Willingness, 9.5 for Constitution, 9 for

Rideability, 8 for trot, 8 for canter, and 8.5 for XC jumping! His individual category

scores were 7.13 or higher. He exhibited aptitude for dressage and over fences

where his form and scope was tested up to 1.25m (4’1”).

At the NASS inspection in 2017 the judges were particularly impressed with his

character, his aptitude for both jumping and dressage, and with his superb canter

for which they awarded him a 9.

In 2017 he competed with a young rider in USDF shows where he scored well and

was always in the ribbons in a competitive region. Look for him in 2018 in the

open 3 rd level classes!

FCF Oberons Vanity is consistently siring foals with superior substance and bone,

quality gaits, excellent feet, structural correctness, incredibly kind and willing

temperaments, and classic Arabian beauty. He is an Arabian stallion who can

measure up to the top standards of the sport horse world with a pedigree that is

packed with old-fashioned CMK lineages with a consistent pattern of producing

athletic horses with high rideability.

Zahin Haalim, a Straight Egyptian,100% Gleannloch bred stallion, has outstanding

bone, body, and a bold temperament. Triple Sameh in his pedigree provided a

guarantee for athletic ability and brains! His smooth gaits made this boy a natural

for Western Dressage, and he did very well (at mostly unrated shows) before an

injury sidelined him.

Zahin Haalim also excelled at Extreme Cowboy Races where he represented the

Arabian breed very well with his beauty and athletic ability! His foals have

excellent temperaments, good bone, and correct conformation.

Mission Statement

The Arabian Sport Horse Alliance was formed to promote the interests of owners,

breeders, trainers, and exhibitors who are dedicated to developing purebred Arabian,

Anglo-Arabian, Shagya Arabian, and part-bred Arabian sport horses and sport ponies to

their fullest potential as competitive, user-friendly partners in the traditional sport horse

disciplines of dressage, eventing, hunters, jumpers, combined driving, and driven

dressage from suitability classes to the highest performance levels.

The Alliance also supports the development of the emerging discipline of western

dressage and recognizes endurance as sharing the same roots in the cavalry tests as the

traditional sport horse disciplines.

1) To maintain and operate an association of owners, breeders, trainers and other

enthusiasts who desire to promote and support the use of Arabian bred sport horses and

sport ponies in the sport horse disciplines and in sport horse breeding.

2) To work cooperatively with the Arabian Horse Association and its clubs, the North

American Shagya-Arabian Society, the Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry, USEF

affiliate sport horse discipline organizations, sport horse breeding registries, and other

associations on matters of common concern.

3) To provide recognition and incentives for achievements in performance and breeding

of Arabian-bred sport horses and ponies.

4) To support the Arabian sport horse community through education and outreach.

The less we do on cross country, the easier we are on our horses. Learn how to be more still, touch

their mouth only when you need too, plan your turns. The lighter we are with them galloping

between fences we save their bodies and legs.
