It is so wonderful seeing arabians ridden - they truly are the ultimate, whatever the discipline. It is just so great to see them doing something other than being pretty statues on the end of the lead!!
Here is a couple of pics of my superstar little mare Coco Chanel (Om El Shareikh x Killara Chantelle) She is now in foal, so I haven't ridden her for quite some time, but she took the ridden ring by storm! (as well as being a multi supreme in halter)
First show under saddle she came home with several championships & reserves, & was the Supreme Champion Ridden Purebred of the show, beating some very seasoned horses. She finished the season at the Australian Championships with 4 top tens, including 3rd overall in both novice & elementary dressage - only her 3rd time ever doing dressage!!
Now that she is retired to the broodmare paddock, I'm hopeing to start my colt, her half brother, under saddle soon. He is a truly natural athlete & I believe will make a fantastic dressage horse. (link attached for video of him below)
He is also passing his athletic ability on, with his first foal an outstanding saddle prospect - pic below. We excitedly await 3 foals to him next season, including out of the wonderful coco chanel, plus an arabian warmblood! Can't Wait!!Baghira ERA
