May I suggest that those with an interest in blue paint, bull riding and photography plan this for sometime after the Al Khamsa activities conclude on Saturday afternoon? The evening hours are left open for people to do whatever pleases them while in Tulsa, including going to the show. Of course, it would be entirely your individual decision about the appropriateness of the blue paint, bulls, swords and cameras on the show grounds. rolleyes.gif

On the other hand, we do welcome you as you are, your Al Khamsa horses, your enthusiasm and your riding demonstrations at our Fantasia. Seriously now folks, please help spread the word about the Al Khamsa convention Oct 24-26. Bring horses if you can, bring your friends, meet some new ones, and let's have a great time!

Hope we don't miss all the fun.

We're planning to drive up and are really looking forward to meeting a lot of you, but we may be able to attend only 1 day.

If you can make it for Saturday only, you will miss some of the fun, but not all of it by any means! Saturday starts with a gourmet breakfast at the Post Oak Lodge, then the Al Khamsa Advisory Board meeting followed by Peter Harrigan's presentation. Then we all head up the road only a few miles to Bridle Creek Horse Ranch for lunch and the workshop with Mike Albertini, Tom Patterson and Sue Burnham. Following that, the FANTASIA!

As I mentioned earlier, Saturday evening is open so there will be time to get together with your friends and see Tulsa, go to the show, hit the casinos, ride a mechanical bull, or all of the above. This would also be a great opportunity for those concerned about specific breeding groups within the Al Khamsa horse population to plan to meet.

Currently, tentative plans are to bring Daalim El Nefous (Fa Durra Halim x Sajha Selket). He's the only one we have now that is AK (other than the yearling). We have our reservations about bringing him as he's not in 'fit' condition and at age 19 has not been ridden in 6 or 7 years. He also has totally lost the sight in his right eye (he injured it as a suckling foal and somehow retained good sight until 3 years ago). The eye is now a bit sunken so it might bother some people looking at it. I don't know if Chrissi (who also has a new baby and is not yet cleared to ride) will be able to get both the old man and herself ready. She hasn't had him over fences since he lost the sight in that right eye. He might do just fine, or iit might bother him since he last jumped with two good eyes.

Losing Serenity Taruf (SF Untouchable x Serenity Marufa) last month really was distressing. He also was the one we had planned to bring under saddle and as a prime example of a sport horse.

Chrissi's excellent purebred Eventer, CL Emmersom, unfortunately is not elegible to come. While his sire, TCP Rada Bazaz, is AK, his dam is not.

We live a little over 100 miles SW of Tulsa (SW of OKC on I44), so since the Fantasia is N of Tulsa, it will be a little further.

I am so sorry for the loss of your stallion.

As far as I am concerned, AK sire is fine but I am not making the rules. I did do an ad for a Davenport stallion (for AK III) that had to be completely redone because I had included some get out of non AK mares. Pretty sad as they are what the preservation is for, infuse a good dose of old blood in other lines.

I would really like to see them jump!

The location of the Al Khamsa convention is literally just minutes North from downtown Tulsa so hopefully that won't add much to any drive times coming from the South! The Fantasia arena is located actually on Osage Reservation land in a lovely rural but convenient setting. The view of Tulsa from high atop Persimmon Ridge where our meetings are being held at the Post Oak Lodge is magnificent... again, only minutes from downtown Tulsa. If you happen to know where the Gilcrease Museum is, these locations are 3 and 8 miles from there respectively.
(By the way, there will be a private tour of the museum's world famous Native American and Western Art collection on Thursday morning for those of us arriving in Tulsa early.)

Yes, as far as I know, the Fantasia's have always been for only horses qualified as Al Khamsa Arabians. I agree, some truly outstanding horses are produced with AK sires or dams and many top performers have a good dose of AK horses up close in their pedigrees. However, the purpose of the organization is to educate about the Bedouin Arabian horse and for the identification and preservation of these specific bloodlines. While some great horses of today have come as a result of the "infusion" of AK blood, Al Khamsa's mission is to see that the AK horse itself remains available for future generations as well.

I'm really happy to hear so many are planning to attend this years convention. We are planning on bringing 3 horses for the Fantasia. One stallion and two mares. It promises to be a wonderful event! I went to my first convention last year in California and everyone made you feel very welcome! I am sure this year will be no different! Welcome to the midwest everyone!

I hope the Convention goes well this year, I'm sure it will. Last year I witnessed people having a lot of fun, which has certainly gone out of the AHA shows on the whole, except our Sport Horse shows. This year's Regionals were a blast.

I've just completed a survey for AHA—boy did I have fun with that one. My main concern was the total lack of concern for the small breeder and one horse owner (I own just one mare too). I suggest that you all complete this survey and see if we can't get some things changed.

I just completed a survey for AHA too ... ithe survey I received was sent to those of us who had not renewed our membership this year. It covered quite a bit of 'terrirtory' and also gave the respondent several areas where they could wirte their reasons. Object was to see why people had not renewed..

This year will be great to meet many new people! We did have a blast last year!
I got my survey and filled it out today. They do give you plenty of places to really let em have it. So I didn't disappoint them. tongue.gif If they don't want to know they shouldn't ask me.
