Fall was in the air as the colors of the season were beginning to appear and the heat of the summer was replaced with a cool, comfortable breeze. It was a perfect day on September 21, 2016 when Judith Forbis and I visited Dr. Hans Nagel at his Katharinenhof Stud in Northern Germany. Our visit took place just days before the All Nations Cup was to be held in Aachen where Judith, long known for her Ansata Arabian Stud and various educational activities, was to be recognized as the first person to receive the All Nations Cup Lifetime Achievement Award. After spending time walking around the stables and looking at all of Dr. Nagel’s horses, including the latest foal crop, we relaxed in the sitting room at the farm’s charming cottage. Although I have enjoyed personal friendships with both Dr. Nagel and Judith, it was an honor to experience them together in this lovely and informal setting as they shared precious memories of their influential past.

The importance of introducing the Arabian horse to the general public is something Mike and Peri Wilson of Wilson Training and Bloodstock are keenly aware of. They chose a beautiful weekend at their new farm in Sorrento, Florida to invite friends, clients, family and the local community to their First Annual Arabian Horse Days at Wilson Training Center . The event was held on Saturday and Sunday, March 7th and 8th, 2015. Saturdays festivities included a presentation of an outstanding group of halter horses, brood mares, performance horses, fantastic foals and some of the Arabian communities most beautiful Arabian Stallions. A wonderful dinner, decadent deserts and a beautiful atmosphere
