Every once in awhile, we get an update on a horse we’ve bred that just warms your heart and reminds us why we do what we do and how wonderful it is to be able to share the Arabian horse with fellow enthusiasts. We received one of those updates on TF Laureyna (Botswana x Temima). After winning Champion SE Yearling Futurity Filly at the US Egyptian Event, TF Laureyna was exported to Belgium and sold. Her journey had just begun and now she is proudly owned by Clare, who sent us this fantastic letter….
Hello, I would just like to introduce myself im clare who you spoke to my boyfriend we both now own TF Laureyna aka lolli. I brought her after having trouble with my mare i sold at the beginning of the year and lost my confidence. I started riding lolli out on the trails, and her kind nature boosted my confidence, and we began to grow as a team. Now we are trailing out loads, getting lost in our forests. I havnt show a horse inhand since i lost my old crabbet gelding 7yrs ago, and i started working at asmar arabians with a halter trainer called amanda holloway. Who has been training me and giving me the confidence to go back in the ring. Started in may at the south west arab group spring show with 2nd in the amature handler and 2nd senior mares, she is so well trained and loved doing it. At the begining of this month we took her to cornish C international show where she was 1st straight Egyptian, 2nd senior mare, and was bronze senior mare champion. Was over the moon with that i cried Judge helen van-ness, asked if she was american bred so said she is a botswana son she replied “thought so, he really puts quality into foals. Shes a very lovely mare and that she really looks like him”. Then yesterday took her to the midland arab group C show doing the aljassimya amateur challange, we got 1st in the amature senior mares with a score of 574 out of 700 and with silver overall amature champion. I am so proud of her that both our returns into the ring have been so hugely successful already. That is it for this season, next year we are planning on doing 5 international shows. Thank you so much for breeding such a wonderful horse she is my world, and my best friend. She is spoilt rotton, having fun and look forward to our future together, i have some photos for you (sorry for so many). Thank you clare x
