Lyday Farms' three year old grey stallion, LF Al Saher (Al Adeed Al Shaqab x LF Majik Star), shown by Bryan Jeffries, won Grand Champion Stallion. The beautiful mare, OSO Edessa (Laheeb IASB x Elwira SF), shown by Bryan and owned by Raymond Mazzei of Furioso Farms, won Grand Champion Mare, and right behind her, Besada de Desperado AP, owned by Christen and Rich Benat of Arabian Partners, took the Reserve Champion title.
Lyday also dominated in the amateur mare classes. Pasquina AR (Hadidi x LF Estrella Bonita), won her yearling class and was shown to a win as Reserve Champion by owner/handler Melinda Jeffries, and Besada de Desperado AP was shown to a Championship by Christen Benat.
Both Melinda and Christen would like to give special thanks to trainer Bryan Jeffries for his patience and dedication in coaching them to show their horses and for steering them all to success. "We are proud of our horses' effort, their willingness to work in the ring, and the impresson they made at the show," says Melinda, "To sum it up, the whole experience has us looking forward to next year's show season!"
Both Edessa and Besada will be making their debut in Scottsdale this coming February. Stay tuned!
