Perhaps Talaria Farms’ most provocative colloquium to date was experienced by guests the weekend of 2 December.
“The Influence of Straight Egyptian Bloodlines on the Contemporary Arabian Horse” + “Evaluating Young Horses for Career Paths” featured halter trainer Mike Wilson and performance trainer Dale Brown sharing their valuable knowledge and experiences both in and outside the show ring. Bridgette Orwig kept the entire crowd on their toes with a fascinating pedigree quiz and, of course, Talaria’s own, Allison Mehta, led the way in her inimitable eloquent manner.
Two days of casual yet educational discussions blended with demonstrations, individual horse evaluations, and the usual excellent fare prepared by Jane & John, left Talaria’s guests from around the country to return to their homes with new and fresh perspectives.
The weekend also allowed guests and clients to say farewell to Talaria’s retiring general manager Mike Albertini and to meet the new management team – Farm Manager Kelly Davis and Business Manager Deborah McLean.
Talaria Farms is already working on their next event for March 17th & 18th. Look for news of this exciting weekend in the upcoming months.
