Thanks very much for your kind words of welcome.
Taking care of horses and riding is my biggest passion.
It's because of this I chose not to breed because we simply can not do both. Especially regarding the current world wide recession. Which is a real pity in my eyes because having horses and investing in your hobby gives much pleasure.
I am competing currently in endurance at the shorter distances with my SE mare (Babson/Sirecho/Ansata Ibn Halima bloodlines), the grey one.
My black SE mare is a descendant of Folla through JK Blue Hamda.
With my first partbred Arabian, a chestnut Crabbet mare, I competed at advanced level in endurance up to 90kms. I also did this with the Hispano-Arabian gelding of my husband. My husband won a TREC event in The Netherlands in 2006 with this horse.
Because of these two fantastic horses, I like partbred Arabians too.
At this moment I am starting a riding school and training stable but it is of course not easy in the current economical situation.
Nevertheless it feels great to be with and work with horses all day.
Attached a pic of my daughter riding my first Arabian mare Abu Dhabi. My daughter is six years old and grew up with our horses. She loves to "ride".
Kind regards to all,
Abu Dhabi (Djinn x Pax), Manara Samira r.i.p. (Masada Massoud x Matara Saafana), Zabira Atya (Ebony Rumaadi x Bach Raisa),
