First usa bred shagya on short list for weg endurance.

SA Belshazzar (Bayram x Jay El Tongafarah ox) has been named by USEF to proceed to Shaker Village in Kentucky where he will be prepared for the 100 mile WEG endurance race.
“ZAR” is the first USA Shagya to travel to Dubai, UAE to race in the President's Cup and the first USA Shagya to complete 100 miles in 9 hours 17 min.
In 2006, a purebred Shagya won the WEG endurance 100 mile endurance race and "Zar's" breeder, Daunna Sellers, of Verona, Ky. is wishing for another Shagya win. The Shagya breed is a rarity in the horse world with only about 150 breeding animals in the U.S. It's versatility has been proven, as the Shagya excels in all of the disciplines, but lately it has found a niche in the endurance world.
According to the American Shagya Arabian Verband, inc. the breed originated in Hungary and has been developed since 1789 from purebred Arabian stock. Recognized in 1978 as a distinct breed by the World Arabian Horse Organization,WAHO, the Shagya has struggled to comeback following WWII when it almost became extinct.
The Shagya registry is holding an annual meeting and a judging clinic Sept. 25 and 27th
The clinic will be held in Finchville,KY. (between Louisville/Lexington), just off the main hwy. and easy drive from WEG grounds The registry is honored to have as clinician, Dr. Walter Huber, ISG judge and renowned speaker.
Dr. Huber is interesting and fun and you will enjoy hearing about his lifetime experience with the Shagya breed. He is a resident of Germany and a board member of the Internationale Shagya-Araber Gesellschaft
Information about the clinic and annual meeting may be found at Shagya-Arabian Registry - ASAV
Contributions and sponsors are welcomed to fund SA Belshazzar towards his quest for the WEG race. They may be sent to ZAR Fund, 15918 Porter Rd., Verona, Ky. 41092

Please bear with me. The previous message was to go to the first poster. I would like to post a picture of SA Belshazzar but haven't figured out how. He is my baby (I bred him).
