A colt was born on the birthday of a special needs child named Adam, as a gift he was given to the boy by his grandparents, Tim and Marty Shea, and named Adams Fire.
Adams Fire is a supremely gifted individual. His dominance and bar raising performances in the show arena is evidenced by his eight National Championships in three years of showing. It is also evidence in the way he wins, with seven of his eight National Championship titles being unanimous. In 2008, Adam carried three different riders, a youth, an adult amateur, and a professional to unanimous National Championships. This is a testament not only to his physical talents, but his intelligence and willing temperament. Adam is pleased to accommodate different riding styles and adapt to diverse needs. He is a blend of physical and mental attributes that nears perfection.
Adam has the distinction of being crowned the 2008 US National Champion in Half- Arabian English Pleasure Open after a spectacular class , followed by a work-off of three outstanding entries. The entire crowd rose to their feet and cheered the first US Nationals work-off in 30 years as Adams Fire emerged victorious!
Adam represents 50% Arabian blood and the other half a blend of Warmblood, Saddlebred and Hackney. In the historical tradition of Arabian blood being used to enhance other breeds, Adam is an exceptional representative. The refined beauty, intelligence, responsiveness, and agility possessed by the Arabian horse, and leant to other breeds over the millennium, are unmistakable every day in Adams Fire.
