Agate Desert Arabian Yearlings Win Championships!

Posted on March 29, 2011 at 3:22 PM

Halyn's 2010 Filly- Kahlidah Halawa and the 2010 colt, Annapolis Afire,sired by Annapolis ++/, both won their Yearling Halter class at the Arabian Rally in the Valley at the Oregon Horse Center in Eugene, Oregon.  

Since it was a concurrent A and B show, they also won 2 Championships each!

Sad part is, they were the only entries!  No one else brought out their foals.  Although there was a lack of competition, I decided to show them for 2 reasons.  The experience and the opportunity- they now have the opportunity to  compete at Regionals.

I hope there will be some competition there.    :)

Show photos will be added soon!  Keep your eyes on these babies.....we are on the move!  Next show will be the Aim at the Hood in Boring, OR. 

So spread the word!  Bring your foals and show them off!  Look what you missed out on!


Arabian Sport Horse National Top Winners

SHN Payback reports:


"Congratulations MIRAGE V+++// 2010 SHN Payback Top Show Stallion The competition for this year's top stallion at the SHNs came down to the last class! In the lead going into the Saturday night classes was KB Omega Fahim with two National Championships, but with Mirage V, Al-Marah Asterisk, and Annapolis all close on his heels.


And all three of them were in the finals of the Open SHUS, whereas KB Omega Fahim was done and relaxing in his stall, hooves crossed that the other three wouldn't place higher than a Top Ten Saturday night.

 

But all THREE of them did place in the Top Ten, putting Mirage V in a tie with KB Omega Fahim and all three within range to take the top honors if placing Champion or Reserve.

 


With Omega holding his breath, the Reserve Champion was announced as Mirage V! Making him the most winning SHN Payback stallion at the show with two Reserve Championships and Three Top Tens!

 


Congrats to all for a very successful show!!!

 

Mirage V has been awarded his Super Stallion trophy, ribbon, and custom embroidered cooler, donated in memory of the 2008 Top SHN Payback Sire, Bey Oro, owned by Mark and Tania Dunlap of Spring Valley Ranch in CA. "


Again Congratulations to all and especially one of our members, Elaine Kerrigan of Eureka, CA and the owner of KB Omega Fahim!


And of course, we are all very proud of Annapolis as well (sire of my colt- Annapolis Afire) !
