Sorry for the bad quality, pic taken from a pic.
Algaida (Congo x Olimpia II by Nana Sahib), 1959-1976, Yeguada Militar, Jerez, Spain.
She was the first straight Spanish Arabian in Germany, all if her foals went into breeding, all her sons were licensed and performance tested(against warmbloods).

Those giraffe/greyhound looking horses that dominate the showring may be pretty but IMO are not functional.
We do this breed no justice in the long term by continuing the practice of allowing these horse to represent the breed.
When one wins the TEVIS and is a National Champion in the halter ring I might think of breeding them. Shalom
We definitely seem to be on the same page. It seems many more people are going back to what Arabs used to be, which I felt years ago might be an eventual direction that would find more support in light of differing opinions as to what Arabs should be.
My goals also are centered on the Sporthorse ring, and there are ongoing talks with regard to new and expanding classes in this discipline. This is where the impetus is moving strongly. A large number of Arabians enthusiasts are behind it, gaining numbers.
No- pretty isn't functional; my money will go to a use-able horse- not an ego-based neurotic ornament. I agree with you-- when one wins the Tevis AND halter- I'll change my mind too..LOL That comment cracked me up- the visual was priceless!
Your thoughts are exactly what motivates me to utilize and preserve older, consistent bloodlines, proven by decades of selection by the breeders whose experience produced superior stock and who committed themselves to a balanced, traditional standard, motivated by integrity and intelligence.

I knew there was a strong market for this type of program, and I'm glad to see so many others who have the same ideal/goal in mind. From what I've seen of your mare, she'd be an excellent contender.

LOL-- you're too funny. They would give you such a sob story replete with how they never get treats and other assorted tragedies in their lives.

But, by 2014, we'll have several for you to choose from..
