Top Contender


At 18 years of age, CA Hermoso (CA Acierto x Challendon Flame by Jdar Bari Brita) came out of retirement to win the Western Pleasure Championship ATR at Scottsdale in 2006.  He is shown here after the win with Jill, his rider, and his breeders/owners Priscilla Richardson and Bill Normington.

His trainer, Bill Porcher, had never seen him shown before because he was the only one who had ever ridden him.  Even at this age he out-moved all the horses in the class and gave a stellar performance.  Jill had only ridden him a few times previous to his qualifying class (which he also won).

Hermoso is a National Champion in WP Open in the US and Canada, as well as Regions 3 and 7.  He was Region 1 and Region 7 Champion Stallion, and he sired 114 purebred and Half-Arabian foals, many of which are winners in their own right.

Exodus I+// (El Dorado I x *Abha Odalic) is 2007 Scottsdale High Score Amateur Dressage Horse, and Res. High Score overall!   He is 2006 USEF Horse of the Year Res. Champion Region III Jumper.  He has won 1 National Championship, 3 Reserve National Championships, and 13 Top Tens.  He also has 7 Regional Championships, 9 Reserve Championships, and 12 Top Fives.  He has been ridden by three generations of the Stanley fa,mily.

His tail male line is Seanderich through Garbo, and his tail female is Kadranka.  His foals are as beautiful and athletic as he is.

SZED Volpe is a Classical Spanish 1982 gelding by Tamarindo YM and out of *Li by Ciceron.  His tail female is Veraz.

"Buddy" is owned and shown by Lily Meisner, 14 when she won the Top Tens (pictured), of Taos, New Mexico, and was imported by SZED Spanish Arabians.  Lily has done all of the training on "Buddy" (with a little help from trainer Dolly Wallace) since she was 12 years old!  Due to his age, "Buddy" was retired at the 2004 Youth Nationals, just after winning a Reserve National Championship.

His record includes:
2003  US National Top Ten JTR Trail
2003  US National Top Ten JOTR Trail
2004  US Reserve National Champion Trail Horse

Top Contender (*AN Malik x Rho Sabba by Khemosabi), a Spanish-related bay stallion, was foaled in 1980 and died in 1997.  He was the poster boy for the Spanish outcross, and gained wide recognition because of his outstanding show career.  He was shown mostly in halter  and was named US National Champion Futurity Colt and Canadian National Champion Stallion.  He received two more US Top Tens, was Scottsdale Champion Stallion, Ohio Buckeye Champion Stallion, Region 8 and Region10 Champion Stallion, and also had wins in Pleasure Driving and English Pleasure.  He had 163 foals.
