When age prevents me from riding,
I will still keep horses as long as
I can shuffle along with a pail.
When I can no longer shuffle,
I will roll my wheelchair to the pasture
Fence to watch my horses graze.

Congratulations! I really like that he looks like a well put together, using horse. No wonder he did so well.

Thank you kindly. This was Gillan's first show under saddle. His two previous shows were in-hand at Texarkana and Region 9 Sport Horse Championship. Gillan is a special horse to us and we are really happy he is doing terrific!

Yes, he is a using horse :)

Congratulations!

Thank you for being a great ambassador for our breed and getting them out there in front of Non Arabian folks so they
can see what our fabulous horses can do.

You are most welcome. We received visitors during the show from the fair grounds. There was a Toby Keith concert one night and folks came by the barns to see the horses too. People love to pet the Arabian horses.

We will be riding in the Christmas Parade in Crandall, Texas, in Native Costume on our Arabians on Dec 15. Great way to get alot of the public to see the beauty and willingness of our Arabian horses :)

I used to love when our Los Angeles County Fair used to have an Arabian show as one of the events.

It was such an awesome way to introduce thousands of non arabian and non horse people to our breed.
