Presidents Letter 

Autumn 2014

Hello Shagya Arabian owners, lovers and friends,

Autumn is upon us and the cooler temperatures are coming. This is one of the best times to ride. Beautiful colors fill the forests and most of us that own Shagyas are within a short distance from a state or national park. I‘m hoping everyone will find the time to enjoy their horses this time of year.

I know there are a large number of owners that are currently taking their Shagya Arabians in distance rides across the USA. If your running FEI, AERC or Competitive Trail please remember to use the word ‘Shagya- Arab‘ and not just Arab when you are filling in the breed distinction box on your entry form. It is great when our horses are placed high in the results and others can see that the Shagya Arabian is getting its due when listed in the horse magazines.

The ASAV Shagya Distance Challenge Ride will be held Halloween Weekend in Clark State Forest, Henryville Indiana. Lois McAffie, ride manager has invited us to hold our national ride during the AERC Spook Run ride October 31st and November 1, 2014.

The ASAV Shagya Distance Challenge Ride will be run on November 1st details for the Spook Run Ride can be found by visiting: http://www.aerc.org/Calendar/2014SpookRun.pdf

Please make reservations with the ride if you plan on attending.

In past years, the ASAV has held its rides in Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Virginia, Utah and various other places. We have tried to go from east coast to west coast alternate years. This year it will be held in the Midwest.

Clark State Forest is a 24,000 acre park established in 1903 located 30 minutes north of Louisville, Kentucky, bisecting I-65 on both sides of the highway. Many AHA National Rides have been held on this land in past years. This will be the second time for the ASAV Nation ride held in the forest.

The ASAV plans to hold a 50 mile ride and 25 mile ride on Saturday, November 1st, 2014. We have a number of 25 mile horses signed up, but are still looking for more 50 mile Shagya horses to run for the Distance Cup.

This year the ride will be sponsored by Skychi Racing Stable and Dr. Harvey Diamond. You can read about this racing stable: http://www.kentuckyderby.com/horses/connections/skychai-racing-llc-terry-raymond-jana-wagner. He will be donating the wool coolers for the winners. His thoroughbred race horses have won the 2yr old Breeders Cups Stake with Hanson, and he‘s had three racehorses compete in the last three Kentucky Derbys and Kentucky Oaks Race for fillies. Darlene Steven Stables will donate the glass trophies.

We are currently working on the next newsletter. If you have any articles about your horses or just plain farm news. Please send them to Elisha Morehead (codydozer@zoomtown.com) for proof reading.

If you have minute check out the AERC Endurance News Magazine as Dale Scoville and this Shagya Arabian Ninja (Sarvar PFF x Nadeja ox) is on the cover. (http://aerc.org/Membership_EN.aspx) They are looking great!

Enjoy your ride during this wonderful autumn,
