JANUARY 2019 PHOTO OF THE MONTH Affliction (Mamage x PSI Love U by Allience) 2013 stallion, ridden by Jim Lowe, owned by Amazing Horse Woman, LLC, Montecito, California. www.drnancyoreilly.com. QUOTE OF THE MONTH “For me, this is one of the many wonderful things about Arabian horses. Yes, they are beautiful to look at, but they are so much more than that. Not just pretty pictures, but living history books whose pages contain stories of everything you can imagine: war and adventure, love and loss, excitement and heartbreak. In the past, the Arabian was the mount of warriors and the companion of kings. As alluring as the bright lights of the show ring and the thrill of winning may be, let us never forget the proud heritage of which we, today, are the guardians.”…

what in the world

Alexis Doughty and her husband, Bill, own the 400-acre Bayview Farm on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. It’s a busy Hunter/Jumper barn with 50 to 60 horses, both Thoroughbreds and Thoroughbred crosses, and the Doughtys’ Arabians and Half-Arabians, two public trainers, plus a lesson program in which all the kids ride Arabians. Alexis grew up riding Thoroughbreds on the hunter/jumper circuit in Pennsylvania. That is, until a friend twisted her arm to show a Half-Arabian at an Arab show. “I ended up having the most fun I’d ever had in my life,” she says. “Our barn goes to Hunter/Jumper shows and Arabian shows, and every Hunter/Jumper person we take to an Arabian show ends up buying an Arabian. And conversely, it’s so much fun to take our Arabians…

twisted tales

I admit I am addicted to Arabian horse sales ads. I scroll through them, and the ones that intrigue me, I will then watch the videos. As though I actually have money to buy another horse. Sigh. As I really can’t be buying another Arabian, the next best thing is spending someone else’s money! It’s exciting to find someone else an Arab and even more so for someone who has never owned one before! I fell into it. It started with my friend, Terry, who was between horses. She had never ridden an Arab, and I had extra, so she started riding Tia. At that time, I had Tia for sale, but while she liked Tia, she wanted taller and bay. Tia could be a lot of things but not taller and…

In June 1983, the San Joaquin Valley Arabian Horse Association put on a special show to celebrate Frances and Donald Jones’s fiftieth year with Arabian horses. Merchants of Porterville, California, contributed to the event and established Arabian breeders of that time — Earl and Helen Blincoe, Cal Poly Pomona, Norm Dunn (who also judged the show), Harry and Katie Harness, Marianne and Richard Hatfield, Frances and Earl Hurlbutt, Frank and Helen McCoy, Dr. Eugene and Mary Jean LaCroix, the Mekeel family, the Frisco Mari family, Bazy Tankersley, and Sheila Varian — all chipped in. Breeders of Arabian horses were few and far between in the 1930s, when the Joneses went shopping for their first Arabian. They owned several what they called “ordinary horses” but wanted to have something to look forward…

ERIK BJÖRKSTEN FINLAND: Thank you for the very nice article about me and the horses in your September 2018 issue, page 60. It was much appreciated, especially as I lost my lovely Rona (Ferona) on October 2. She fought bravely, but then I had to make the decision. Breeding is like that, wonderful heights and upsetting lows. This made your article especially valuable to me — a small back yard breeder! Fortunately she has one daughter (Fedra) who is now in foal to Om El Sinon for a June foal. So all is not lost, but hanging on a thin thread! Also her son, Federation, is showing a lot of promise. Fedra and Federation have so far not been shown, but Rona with Sisters, Mum, and Granny have been extremely successful in all spheres. Happy…

polidoro fc

Stuart and Sue Larsen might have one of the most disciplined breeding programs in the Arabian horse world: it boasts two horses — a multi-National Champion Stallion, Polidoro FC, whom they bred from a purchased embryo, and a three-year-old filly, Kamila FC (*Kanz Albidayer x A Special Versace). But of course, it wasn’t always so. Stuart’s earliest memories of horses trace to his childhood growing up on a sheep farm in New Zealand’s North Island in the Waikato Valley. There were plenty of dogs and plenty of horses around, and Stuart rode nearly every day. “It was a hilly farm, and the horses were better at covering the country than vehicles,” he says. “We used horses to get a job done. They were work horses; not pretty.” Meanwhile Sue grew up owning…
