My first horse was a Breyer Model my Mom gave me when I was about four years old.  My first living, breathing Arabian came when I was 35.  Both are lots of fun but I will admit the Breyer Horses are a lot cheaper to feed.  Whether you own model horses or the real thing, both are lots of fun and have give untold years of enjoyment.

Please check my site for the ever popular Breyer Holiday Models and many from the past.  All models are new and in the box, with Traditional, Classics and more starting from 1999.  You will also find rare and limited edition models.

Arabian Horse Foundation Announces $10,000 in Funding for Rescue and Rehoming Needs

Aurora, CO (September 16, 2011) – The Arabian Horse Foundation (AHF) has announced $10,000 in grants for rescue and rehoming requests for 2011. The grants complete this year’s funding support in the Foundation’s three areas of focus: Scholarships, equine research, and rescue/rehoming. A total of $36,000 has been committed for the coming year, making a total of $135,000 distributed by the Foundation since 2007.

“The Foundation board is pleased to distribute $10,000 in the coming year to rescue and rehoming,” stated Larry Kinneer, AHF President. “There have been a number of weather-related catastrophes over the last year impacting horses and those who support rescue in such situations. We’re setting aside more funds to help when national emergencies occur.” The AHF is the philanthropic arm of the Arabian Horse Association (AHA).

The Foundation directed $4,500 for emergency relief with funds to be divided when the need arises. This year, the Foundation has provided emergency funds to a rescue operation in a tornado stricken area, funds for another rescue operation suffering damages from Hurricane Irene, and additional funding involving a horse starvation situation in Arizona. Most recently, the Foundation provided funds for rescue efforts involved with the Texas wildfires.

For 2011, the Foundation granted Santa Barbara Equine Rescue and Evacuation $1,000 to assist with efforts to acquire a life-size, life-weight training mannequin for use by the agency in their training programs. They offer training for organizations such as law enforcement bodies to educate officers about the handling and extraction of horses trapped and in need. The training mannequin will help tremendously in the Santa Barbara’s group to educate how to handle large animals in emergency situations.

Another $1,000 will go to the American Competitive Trail Horse Association, an agency dedicated to demonstrating the value of many horses that end up in rescue situations. This group is initiating a new program, entitled Diamond in the Rough, which will recognize the accomplishments of rescued horses in their various competitions by offering high-point awards. The AHF grant will underwrite the initiation of this program. Many Arabians are part of those competing.

Beauty’s Haven Equine Rescue, a Florida-based rescue operation, will receive $1,000. This group has been known to take on some extremely difficult rescue situations, demonstrating compassionate care for any horse needing their help. They communicate consistently with supporters focusing on keeping them informed and involved.

The Foundation granted $500 each to the Arabian Rescue Mission and to the Saffyre Sanctuary. Both of these organizations have impressive track records and have a spirit of cooperation in helping horses, particularly Arabians in need. Another $1,000 has been set aside for potential equine assistance in a seizure situation. Final dissemination of funds will be determined by the necessity for feed, dental and medical needs of the horses involved.

Of the grants, Carol Darnell, chair of the Foundation’s Rescue and Rehoming Advisory panel stated, “It is a pleasure to be able to recognize such a diverse group of organizations in their efforts on behalf of our horses. When we are all faced with challenges, the dedication and focus demonstrated by these groups show us how we can all make a difference.”

The $10,000 completes the funding cycle for 2011. Earlier this year, the Foundation committed $13,500 to youth scholarships and $12,500 to equine research. The Foundation has advisory panels made up of nationally known experts in each area of funding. They review requests and make recommendations to the AHF board of directors.

“The Foundation has made significant progress since it was re-launched in 2007,” Kinneer said. “It is through the generosity of our AHA membership that we are able to fund and support needy projects such as those we have funded not only in 2012, but in the past.” Other members of the AHF board include: Lollie Ames, Jim Cada, Frank Galovick, Nancy Harvey and Terry Johnson.

It is possible to contribute to the Foundation by making a direct contribution and sending it to the AHF Treasurer, Jim Cada, 1024 K. Street, Lincoln, NE, 68508; by making an on-line contribution through PayPal, or by checking off the donation box on the AHA membership application/renewal. When making a direct contribution, it is possible to direct where you want your donation applied.

2011 AHA Distance Horse of the Year is No Accident


Aurora, CO (February 9, 2012) – OT Sara Moniet RSI (Rave On Ravenwood x OT Dysara RSI), a 2004 dark chestnut owned by M.A. “Crockett” Dumas of Escalante, Utah was named the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) 2011 Distance Horse of the Year, adding one more award to a long list of 2011 accomplishments.


“Sara” covered 1,675 competition miles in 2011, completing 31 of 31 rides with 10 overall wins and 9 Best Conditions. The 7 year-old mare won two 200-mile rides, one 165-miler, one 155-miler, and finished all but one of her rides in the Top Ten. Coupled with Distance Horse of the Year honors, Sara was named the AHA High Point 50-99 mile Endurance horse. The American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) awarded Sara the War Mare Award and the Belesemo Arabians Pioneer Award for the Heavyweight Division. Lastly, Sara was awarded the Drinkers of the Wind performance award by the Institute of the Desert Arabian Horse.


“Well everybody thinks their horse is the greatest horse in the world,” says Crockett Dumas. “But she is really a great all-around horse. I bred her and her mother and father … after riding 37,500 miles, I don’t spend a lot of time on good horses. She’s a great horse.”


Dumas has been breeding for excellent endurance horses since the late 70s and has been successful, producing several champions over the last 30 years. “She’s no accident,” he says about Sara, but Dumas noticed a spark that made her standout in his eyes in 2011. While competing in multi-day races, scheduled one after another, other riders chose to ride a combination of horses, while Sara rode on through. “When you have fresh horses thrown at you every day; for a horse to do what she did—complete, run up front, and win—that’s really something very, very special. And carry more weight at the same time,” says Dumas referring to the heavyweight division (when tack and rider weigh over 211 lbs. combined) in which they ride.

“She’s got a great mind. She really likes people. I don’t pay much attention to what they look like, but she happens to be really pretty—she looks like her foundation mare.”

Dumas plans to continue to use Sara in endurance races and might add to the one foal she has had, but his breeding has slowed in recent years due to the poor economy. He has no doubt in her ability to continue on the path she’s on now. “At this age, I’m the one that gives out. I’m the weak link! Sara has no trouble at all.”



AHA is a major equine association serving 33,000 members across North America. It registers and maintains a database of more than one million Arabian, Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian horses and administers approximately $3 million in annual prize money. AHA produces championship events, recognizes close to 600 Arabian horse shows and distance rides and provides activities and programs that promote breeding and ownership.

Arabian Horse Association Now Included in World Registries

DENVER, CO-After nearly a decade of negotiations, an agreement has been made between the Purebred Arabian Trust (representing the Arabian Horse Association's 100-year old purebred Arabian horse registry) and the World Arabian Horse Organization (WAHO) that grants the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) Registry exclusive authority over American registrations as recognized by WAHO. This status change is effective January 01, 2008, and returns all associated responsibilities from the Purebred Arabian Horse Registry (PAHR) to the AHA Registry.

"We are delighted in the success of this agreement," said Bob Fauls, Chairman of the Purebred Arabian Trust (PAT), "and believe this to be a momentous occasion promising a bright future of significant benefit to the Arabian horse community."

While this changes nothing relating to domestic registration procedures for AHA members, it does affect registration activity requiring WAHO involvement-namely certain international importation and exportation procedures of purebred Arabian horses and semen. Beginning January 01, 2008, the PAT in conjunction with the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) will be the only registering authority in the United States recognized by WAHO.

In order to facilitate PAT's admission to WAHO membership, PAHR has agreed it will cease its activities December 31, 2007 and refer new and pending transactions to AHA. Since the WAHO membership of the AHA Registry's predecessor, the Arabian Horse Registry of America, was terminated in 1997, PAHR has provided to the American Arabian horse community a venue for international Arabian horse transactions, importations and exportations.

A major consideration in achieving this agreement with WAHO is the fact that the Studbooks have been closed and the purebred Arabian database is now firmly established and defined. Hans Nagel, president of WAHO, said "From now on, the world-wide Arabian horse breed is an exclusive and closed population and will be guarded as such."

"We're pleased to share this announcement with our membership as it reflects a successful conclusion for our breed following lengthy negotiations," said Myron Krause, president of AHA. "Ultimately, our membership and our Arabian breed will benefit greatly from this resolution."

More information will be forthcoming, including but not limited to the next AHA President's Letter, Modern Arabian Horse magazine, and
