QUOTE OF THE MONTH “There are few words that a mom and dad can say to express the deep pride we have in who you are as a man, husband and father. Your character and your priority to always put your family and your faith in God first is what makes us so proud of the man you are today. Through your incredible gift that first came to light at age nine when you trained your first horse, Mr. T, and then through the years with each additional horse that you broke and took successfully into the showring, you have proven…

what in the world

TRADITIONS … even in a nation as young as America, our traditions run deep. Presents at Christmas, turkey at Thanksgiving, colorful bunting to decorate the World Series stadium — they’re all part of the American tradition. Why? Because human nature loves what it knows. That’s why you give a Christmas present to a boss you maybe don’t even like, and you eat Thanksgiving turkey when you’d sure rather have roast beef, and you admire the red, white, and blue bunting while you eat your overpriced hot dog in your overpriced World Series seat … enjoying every single minute of it. Traditions didn’t become traditions without the majority of folks thinking they were “part of the package” … not to mention great fun. Scottsdale … whether in ’59, ’69, ’79, ‘89’, or…

Dr. Ed Davidson, a mixed practice veterinarian in Spartanburg, South Carolina, has bred over 50 horses in his breeding career spanning 40 years. The young stallion SHF Shilveree (*Besson Carol x SHF Miss Scarlet) is the culmination of many years of expert breeding that started with the stallion SHF Southern Whiz (Gazesel x HV Baroness) a Legion of Honor winner, in 1983. Whiz, dubbed “the exotic one,” was a fabulous sire known for passing on his extreme type and quality. His most notable offspring was SHF Pearlie Mae (x Citrona), who was sold to Shirley Watts of Halsdon Stud and named World Champion Mare in 1996. Dr. Davidson has bred several horses with National titles, including SHF Souths Choice Legion of Honor (SHF Southern Whiz x Ultimate Choice), 2002 U.S. Top…

you be the judge

In this series, we invite readers to submit a photo of their horse to be included in a recurring conformation evaluation. Noted International Arabian judge Cindy Reich will place each class and explain her thought process. The horses are not identified, but ranked in order from 1-4. Test your judging skills and see if you saw the same things. The photographs do not have to be professional, but must be a high quality profile picture where the horse fills the whole frame. All feet and legs must be visible. It is preferable that the horse is standing relatively square. Anyone can submit a photo for this feature. Any age from yearlings to aged horses are accepted. Horses do not need to be clipped. Simply include the photo along with age and sex…

the bond we share with our arabian horses intimate portraits

“People want to know, ‘Why Arabians?’ Because very few breeds receive love from a human better than an Arabian. I have so many images of people connecting with their horses, and I want to share them with Arabian Horse World’s readers, so they can see what I see. Sometimes we forget that this is more than a business. The truth is, we have all been touched by these sensitive horses in one way or another. It’s beautiful and amazing!”—APRIL VISEL “When I learn to feel and find my mare’s heart and soul, she will open all her doors and windows to me. Once I’m welcomed into her world, she will make my life full of butterflies, each time I see her. Every single day!”—JOHANNA ULLSTRÖM “Al Jassim danced on the edge of the…
