SHOW BUSINESS – the Top of the Range Arabian Event 2016


This weekend I attended the Top of the Range Arabian Event and came away with one question. What did I learn from the weekend? I won’t bore you all with every detail but the brightest beam of light would have to be the enjoyment of all who attended.

The people who go over and above to show their horses, the people who sponsor classes, the people who run the show year in, year out, the people who are booked to judge, and even the people who support by simply coming to watch the beautiful horses.

I applaud the hard working committee and observe their common goal and the respect they have for one another. The weekend program went smoothly and this in itself makes for a relaxed and happy show. The judges were efficient, friendly and smiling.

For those of us who socialise, catching up with dear friends old and new is pretty special. But for me personally the incredible people who took the time to stop buy some books and to tell me how much they enjoy my stories I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without your support I would never be able to continue publishing my books.

Of course, I’m biased when I say that Australia has the world’s best Arabian horses and Arabian horse breeders and despite the chilly weather (the days following the show have been amazing) I witnessed some magnificent horses and so many smiling and enthusiastic faces.  This is a show with a heart and soul, born decades ago by people who truly loved Arabian horses and desired only good for the breed. Congratulations to all associated with this show, you should be very proud of your achievements as the heart of this show is still beating with strength, determination and a clear love of the Arabian horse.
