Hi everybody, its quite late and warm here in Qatar, sorry, cannot remember all the results and forgot my catalogue at the hotel bar. But there is one thing, I must say: This was a FANTASTIC show!!! Although I understand, that a lot of people didn't show up regarding the political situation ... but I must say: Guys, you really missed a great show!
And especially an exceptional presentation on one special horse. When I saw Al Aadeed in Paris last year, there was a) no question, that he deserved the World Champion title and
that he was the maximum of exotic and Arabian type. Well, I was wrong! The moment, Ashhal Al Rayyan entered the ring, I knew, I was completly wrong. I do not have enoug words to explain how fantastic this horse looked. Exotic type, a body made of steel, tail and ears always up, trotting like hell. I don't feel ashamed to say, tears came into my eyes. This stallion deserved the Champion title, no question.
But it turned out different. Al Aadeed beat Ashhal with just 0,3 points and won the Champion title with Ashhal reserve!
At least, one of my absolutly favourite fillies won the Junior Championship: Jamila Al Rayyan!
More news tomorrow. Have to leave you and have to pick up my catalogue at the hotel bar (and maybe spend a bottle of champaigne for this wonderful show!).
