Scottsdale Week Highlights
Sunday is a great day to spend with your family . . . especially when that family happens to be the expansive circle of loved ones known affectionately as Team Midwest.

At the February Scottsdale Show, Championship Sunday was an especially grand occasion for Midwest, marking the culmination of an event that kicked off another record breaking Horse Show, Midwest shined––in fact, brighter than ever before––when one great horse after another earned a series of 35 championships including both the Half Arabian and the Purebred Arabian Supreme Halter Awards that will stay in memory forever.

Midwest’s Scottsdale Show triumphs were a perfect celebration, following three months of preparation, anticipation and shared effort that led up to this inaugural event of our show year.

Our winter season–––began when Team Midwest came together at the farm in Scottsdale for a New Year’s Eve celebration on what was one of the special in memory––That sunny day, Midwest hosted the ArabHorse.com Farm Tour Finale, where family, friends and guests enjoyed a preview of spectacular Invitational Sale consignments and an unequaled display of stallion power with an “all hands on deck” presentation of the magnificent National Champion stallions of Midwest, Magnum Psyche, Vitorio TO, LD Pistal, Aria Impresario, Onitnelav, Vegas DPA  and the much anticipated introduction of the Polish National Champion, *Pogrom.

The ArabHorse.com Farm Tour Benefit Auction closed the evening bringing the total raised for
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge to $35,000.

Midwest Welcomes Luciana Fasano and Fazenda Floresta to the TEAM!

On Saturday February 25th, Midwest welcomed Luciana and her stallions of Fazenda Floresta to the team with a wonderful afternoon celebration at the farm. Luciana brought a touch of her spectacular Fazenda Floresta, near São Paulo, Brazil, to Scottsdale for the party that Saturday afternoon. She treated her guests to her renowned decorating skills as she hosted a presentation of her magnificent Arabian stallions. In her classic style she transformed the pavilion to a sea of red, white and blue for one of the most beautiful dessert tables imaginable.

The setting was a perfect complement to a spectacular sunny afternoon as an overflowing crowd gathered for a close up look at her prized Arabians. These horses are very aware of their owner and their true companionship was quite evident as they waited for her personal attention after showing their stuff to the audience.

AAS-Elishahh – Son of National Champion Eden C, this extraordinary bay colt is already destined for greatness. Already a Two Time National Champion and Las Vegas World Cup Champion at just the age of 3.

Al Hadiyah AA – Straight Egyptian Champion stallion sired by the significant international sire of national champions Laheeb and out of the magnificent and incomparable black mare The Vision HG. His beauty is unmatched!

Eccentric Valentino – A National Champion Stallion and perhaps one of the best bred sons of the great DA Valentino. He was the 2012 Scottsdale Champion 5 Year Old Stallion and now he continues  his journey as he makes his way two Brazil.

OFW Wan and Only – Representing the very best of what dreams are made of this young colt exudes the look of the great sire lines of Marwan, Magnum Psyche, Padrons Psyche and Bey Shah.

Now a glance back at the Show...

The Scottsdale Show opened on Thursday, February 16th. Shortly thereafter the roofline of the Midwest stalls began filling up with Championship Roses! Ten days later, that same roofline was covered with an astonishing testimony to the stellar achievements of the great horses of Team Midwest, their owners, trainers, grooms and handlers. All in all, on display were symbols signifying...

40 Top Ten wins, 8 Reserve Championships and 27 Scottsdale Championships!

Courtney Boggs earned a Top Ten Award in Arabian English Show Hack, with BP KlassiqueBey and younger sister Miss Emma Boggs––showing in the youth division––brought in a clean sweep with six consecutive Scottsdale Halter wins!

For her part, Lyndsey Boggs enjoyed the show through one of her passions, the camera lens, recording for posterity Midwest family achievements.

AND, not to be outdone, the youngest member of the Boggs clan, Mr. Jake Boggs, was named Grand Champion in the Lead line Equitation - Riders 2 to 7 Years of age.

In the Winner’s Circle...

Tribute Thyme SA, charmed and amazed the judges and the audience with an outstanding performance to win the Platinum Performance Arabian Liberty Final. Alcides Rodrigues and Jason Tackett were his "ring men" for owner Jason Tackett.

It’s a widely accepted fact within the Arabian horse show community that the competition in Scottsdale is stiffer than any other Arabian Horse Show––anywhere. So, to claim a total of 15 of the final Scottsdale Championships for 2012 is an amazing accomplishment.
