There is something magical about just being with an Arabian. I have sat with all my mares through each of their foalings and it is so humbling to see a newborn encounter the world. I imprint the newborn foal as soon as they’re born from my electric wheelchair or from on the ground without my legs on and the strength of the bond I share with each of them is really important to me.
Lifelong Student of the Arabian Horse
Falling in love with the Arabian horse, my mother sold her grandmother’s wedding ring to buy her first Arabian, a gelding, from Van Vleet. She devoured every bit of information on the Arabian horse, reading, researching and studying. She built up a breeding programme of primarily Crabbet-bred horses, as she was a rider and horseman and wanted a horse that was functional as well as beautiful.
