I have dreamed my entire life of owning a beautiful Arabian that is of versatile mindset, that can and will do cross performances in sanctioned arena shows of halter/breeding in hand, arena performances, as well as off the farm on trail rides of various performance levels...
Don was a very unique and colorful man; one who had a profound influence on many people from all over the world as well as in a variety of professions and walks of life. He was a very talented and gifted individual who utilized all those attributes and because of these gifts his legacy is paid forward in so many ways.
The much-awaited event was held on February 13th and 14th in the wonderful setting of the Abu Dhabi Equestrian & Racing Club, usual location for this "B" show. This year it was even more interesting, if that was at all possible, by the rich prizes awarded to the top five of each category, the Gold, Silver and Bronze medal of the final championship, in addition to some special prizes that we will see later on.
Conformation shows have really captured everyone, so much so that the number of shows has significantly increased over the last two years, from two to four each year. Praise goes to the organization, led by the event manager Melanie Mannix and supported by a perfect team.
