Fun Times at the Arabian Breeder Finals in Scottsdale!
Excitement and Entertainment Abound At This Best-Of-The-Best, Premiere Show

October 19 2011, Scottsdale, AZ:  The inaugural Arabian Breeder Finals wowed the crowds with only the most beautiful examples of Arabian Horses. Held at West World from October 12-15th breeders and trainers proudly brought out their hand-picked best – in all, 164 horses were entered into 32 classes.


The show had a relaxed celebratory feel with many attendees and exhibitors reporting that they had experienced more fun at this show than any other.  Interestingly, the show took cues from European-style horse shows and offered a new experience for domestic horse lovers. This included the very first Arabian Weanling Class to be held in North America; a class that stole the show and the hearts of the audience with its exquisite 4 month old filly Champion RAH Rosalia. Attendees were thrilled to be presented with the beautiful new babies of 2011, which also included the stunning colt Champion Sultan ORA. Sultan’s new owners had flown in from Uruguay and were just one example of the many foreign visitors at this global show. Another treat for visitors happened before show hours; breeders and trainers scheduled open-houses at local farms, which proved popular and were well-attended; in-all, this event proved an excellent venue for showcasing the ‘Noble Breed’.


At West World, the newly named Tony Nelssen equidome was decorated beautifully; breeders and trainers sponsored embellished, tented seating areas, while select vendors lined the south aisle. Complimentary food was made available each day during the late afternoon, and for the finale evening folks got on their feet to dance to the live music of the Beatle Show (from the Las Vegas). This was followed by the glamour of the Champion Senior Mare and Stallion classes, which completed what was unquestionably an amazing and exciting event for the Arabian horse industry; and we look forward to enjoying it annually for years to come.


Thanks to the unending hard work of the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona, Scottsdale continues to prove itself to be a vital center for the Arabian Horse Industry; their expert skills shone again at the Breeder Finals. Horse lovers are looking forward to attending the AHAA’s Polo Party on November 5th, The American Cup Championship November 11-13th and the world-renowned Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show returning for its 57th year, in February.
