It is with indescribable joy – that Dixie and Robert North of North Arabians announce the completion of 2-year project – a labor of love – a tribute to the great stallion and leading sire of the breed, Padrons Psyche!

Serenata El Jamaal… a world’s mare!

September 16, 2015

The soft nicker of a mare nuzzling her foal for the first time floats through the cool spring evening. In the darkness, you can hear the sound of the other horses stirring at the recognition of the new arrival. This annual event continues to ignite the passion of Ron and Laura Armstrong of Armstrong Arabians. “In the world we live in today, the Arabian horse is able to bring us down from the crazy speed of business and life, to experience the simple enjoyment of one of God’s greatest creations,” Ron says. “Being in the barn at the time of birth, hearing the other horses, …read more


North Arabians… a visit to remember!

August 3, 2015

Another stop on my 2015 World Tour was traveling to Ramona, California – about an hour outside of San Diego, to the famed North Arabians. What a way to top off an already super week spent in California than a drive down south to Ramona. My thanks to Robert & Dixie for a very special visit to their North Arabians just outside of San Diego. Robert & Dixie have built an incredible breeding program and is home to one of the most elite band of breeding mares found anywhere in the world.

2015 World Tour Part One

May 30, 2015

The month of May was a whirl-wind to say the least. With the breeding season in full swing and many new website projects in the works — makes for a very hectic time with my mobile office when I’m on the road. At the beginning of May, I found myself at Manny Lawrence’s Jade Creek Arabians in Santa Ynez, California. Manny had called just before the Las Vegas Show and told me he had the Arabian Horse Times June 2015 Cover and needed some help – of course there was no hesitation on my end and a few days later and a plane ride over to the Santa Ynez Valley, and the rest they say is history. An incredibly successful shoot of Multi-National Champion Brandon Bey JCA+ along with some other JCA bred and owned horses and it was a magical several days soaking in the beautiful California sun and of course witnessing beautiful horses. …read more

The Arabian Foal Festival in Santa Ynez

May 9, 2014

I worked for 13 years as the manager for Al Rayyan Farm in Qatar, one of the leading stud farms of straight Egyptian Arabian horses. When I decided to leave Qatar about two years ago, I changed my position to become the manager of Aljassimya Farm. I was intrigued by Sheikh Jassim bin Khalifa Al Thani’s commitment to breed his own show horses; a commitment that has serious long term responsibilities.

Two big steps had to be taken: finding the right horses and finding the right place to start such a program. …read more


2012 U.S. National Championships Recap

May 9, 2014

I’ve just returned home from our U.S. National Championship Show in Tulsa — I have a few things I’d like to say.

First things first — The performance aspect of U.S. Nationals was absolutely unbelievable. The quality and calibre of our performance horses were nothing short of spectacular. The quality has gotten so high, in both the open and amateur divisions, that I really don’t know how some of the judges were able to adjudicate — all of the performance divisions were immaculate in turnout and high quality.
