    Entry Limit

    Due to minimal amount of judges, we are limiting to an entry of 3 horses per member. You may enter those 3 in whatever class you wish. For example: 2 in Pintabian - Edited, with one in Purebred - Unedited.
    Edited classes do not give more of a reward than entering an unedited class. We have set an edited side and an unedited for each class so all members are encouraged to participate all with earning an equal reward if placed.

    Story (can be added if desired): Listen

    The staff of Bay River Park was a mess, rushing to and from the pastures, barns. We were moving the horses around left and right. Finding our most gentle stallions that tolerated everything to put near the newest member of the stable....Rowan. From what I was informed he was a high spirited young stallion with spark. Its what I had asked for when we imported him, but from what the plane crew told us, that spark was more like a pent up volcano ready to erupt. My old dog Rich heard the trailer before anyone else and let out a low "woof" to let me know. I stared at the drive, sure enough, there it was the big silver trailer was pulling in. I could hear him the nearer they got. He was loud and the trailer kept rocking every so often.

    "Back 'er right on up to the big arena, sounds like Rowan needs a good place to stretch his legs."

    The driver nodded, he was weary and it showed on his face. I nodded to my two boys who stood ready to let the stud out. The driver informed me he had snapped his halter into three peices, great. The trailer doors flew open and with them the flaxen chestnut stallion leaped out of the trailer and announced himself. We all stood in awe as he made his way around the arena, stopping to whinny or snort every so often. The pidgons seemed to aggervate him some but he chased them whenever they landed. He was a sight...and a firecracker.

    Story (can be added if desired): Listen

    Lincoln, my beloved Lincoln, we imported this stallion some time ago and he is probably my personal favorite horse. He knows it too. He begs for attention when I'm trying to work, has free rein of the stable and yard. He comes and he goes. Although when I'm paying bills in the office and he decides to poke his head in is when I know its time for a break and time to probably give the big boy some attention.

    "You know, bills are supposed to be getting done." Was all I could chuckle as I saw his head staring in through the office door.

    I walked him out to the arena and sent him off, walking around the arena he thought he was being sneaky by coming up behind me then running the moment I stopped or turned. He pranced and danced around the arena, a sight to see for sure. I'd jump towards him he'd playfully shy away. This went on for about an hour before he nuzzled the back of my hand and wandered off to go see if the staff had put grain into his stall. Goofy horse.

    She's the image of beauty at Sliding K Ranch, probably the most fragile looking horse. When we went looking to bring something delicate yet high spirited onto the ranch we didn't know what we were looking for until we saw her. We first saw her as a young filly, the breeder told usthe story of her and her sire and dam. A story indeed. She was imported, not bred nor born on American Soil. She had fire and flare, but a delicate face, gentle personallity. She wouldn't hurt anyone, anything other then a fly that bugged her. But she was playful. It was love at first sight. I wanted her, looking into those deep chocolate eyes and seeing it all and just losing myself to them. Was all I needed to say she was the beginning of the arabian program at Sliding K Ranch. And boy has she ever proven herself. She's multi-titled in reining. She puts some of our stock horses to shame. But overall she's my baby. a small yet big hearted beautiful delicate baby.

    Berry has only been with us for almost a year but he's already making great progress in his training. It had been weeks of hard work to get the young Pintabian stallion to figure out how to spin in time for his first show. Sure, his spin is fairly tense, but he's spinning!

    —He knows he's the king here.

    Nur muttered, glancing briefly at Irene. The owner of Crownguard's Stud had parked her job as a rider to own. She was interested in all the horses, and from the entrance of her stable to the Arab Society, she had an eye on the Arabian horses.

    Temor is a well-known stallion in Spain. He inherited the terrible character of his father. Since he had been assembled for the first time so far (three years), he had thrown five experienced riders, wounded nine employees and angered a coach.

    It had been exasperating ... until Altair (Crownguard's biggest and only investor) suggested employing Nur Shinta. A wise woman, with great knowledge of the Arabian horse. She knew how to get to his heart, and she was the one who found the best rider for him.

    They had released Temor in the arena late in the afternoon so Irene could watch him before she left.

    —He is.

    Irene was totally in agreement with Nur ... and with Temor.
