Thanks for getting out into the community and spreading your love of horses.



2018 BreyerFest Recap

It doesn’t matter what you see in these photos, you’ll never be able to understand until you actually attend Breyerfest at the Kentucky Horse Park! Compromised of lots of BAHA, SAHIBA, and other Region 14 members, and a very special horse from Canada, the Arabian Horse was represented in such an amazing light these past three days.

We all often talk about breed organizations slowing down, or the need to feed our circle with fresh blood...well, here it is folks! Some are meeting their first Arabian, some even touching a real horse for the very first amazing to be a part of those firsts for these folks.

This group has handed out 3,000+ magazines, goodie bags, and more Arabian swag! There were multiple disciplines represented, lots of meet and greets, signed autographs, passed out trading cards, folks from other countries visited, and even had the great *Empres, now a Breyer model, being featured with the group.

This wouldn't be happening without Lorie Hendersons committment to the Arabian Horse,  Breed Promotion,  and great group of kids. BAHA is so very Proud of her!

How special is it that we can ALL come together for one purpose, and that is to share our Arabian horse story.

Girl Scouts Learn About The Arabian Horse at Firelight Arabians

We may have missed seeing everyone at the meeting this weekend, but that didn’t stop the excitement from happening at Firelight Arabians this weekend. Firelight hosted an educational, meet the Arabian kinda day for the girl scouts! Around 30 kids and more than a dozen adults attended the event planned especially for them.
They enjoyed a conformation talk and a riding demo, then broke into 3 groups and rotated through stations on how to groom, how to be around a horse, a saddling ,feeding, caring for you horse, stall maintenance, nutrition, and more!!

After lunch, they held a coloring contest, for the 3 age groups, complete with Breyer prizes. Then three horses were saddled, and all the girls got to ride!! Most had never been on a horse, and there were the biggest smiles upon their faces! So much good feedback, the horses were amazing, and the kids thought they were so beautiful! The Girl Scouts learned a lot and went home with a bag full of AHA stuff, Arabian Life Magazines, and lots of other goodies!

Thanks to our BAHA members that took time to share with the Girl Scouts. You are all absolutely amazing and your dedication doesn’t go unnoticed!! McCartney Swears, Tabby Taylor, Grace Garr, Heather Swears, Julian McPeak, Brinley Swears, Holly Kratzenberg, Carisa Eliese Patterson, Samantha Taylor, and of course, Lorie all set the bar high for others when it comes to breed promotion!

And of course none of it would have been possible without their talented horses, Augustara Bey+++/, Just Breezin By+++/, Xanadus Whimsical++, Patriot V++++/, & Yosemitee which are all trained by Firelight Arabians.
