I am sponsored by the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.
My artist is Wendy Morris-Tank.
And I have a story for you.........
Wonderful local artist and horse woman Wendy Morris-Tank likes to think that her horse Desert Prince is ready to take the Tribal Sheikh, or even someone like Lawrence of Arabia on one their adventures through the desert. You will feel the same way when you look closely at this beautiful horse.
Wendy has lived in Arizona most of her life after moving from New York when she was young. Her family has always loved horses and when she could, she started to raise and train them herself. Her natural artistic talent grew over time and she loves to take on new challenges in both her art world and with her horses.
When she moved here, Arabian horses were shown every week around town. Wendy loves working with and building a partnership with her horses, so she eagerly joined the Arabian horse community in Scottsdale. That symbiotic partnership is evidenced in her artistic work as well as her work with horses. Even though she mostly breeds and raises Frieshian horses now, she still has many ties to the Arabian Horse Community in Scottsdale and beyond. She is very pleased that those associations have sponsored Desert Prince and her other horse, Assad, in the Stallion Stampede.
Wendy knows Desert Prince is a hot-blooded horse just like all Arabian Horses. He is ready to go! Desert Prince is capable, willing and able to take the person who rides him all the way to his destination, no matter the distance. Wendy has always loved that trait about these horses.
When you bid on Desert Prince you will be seeking out an authentic Arabian Horse as your partner. He will portray the spirit of determination and endurance that these horses are famous for the world over. People will be drawn to Desert Prince, and inspired by him. That makes him a very special stallion indeed.
Wendy is a Local Artist and horse women.
The Scottdale Arabian Horse Show is a world-class horse show showcasing over 2,000 horses from around the world while providing entertainment for the whole family.
Since 1955 the Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has set the pace in the Arabian horse world. The first show was held at the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel which was a beautiful setting for a horse show. The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show was a first class show from the very first day.
After the show's beginnings at the Arizona Biltmore, Ann McCormick bought 150 acres in Scottsdale and made it into the horse facility known as Paradise Park which served the needs of the show for many years.
Since that time, the show has been held at WestWorld in Scottsdale. It has grown from 50 horses to nearly 2400 horses bringing top owners, trainers and breeders from around the world competing for a chance at winning. A win at Scottsdale can mean big money in the breeding barns.
The 2023 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is proud to benefit these worthwhile charities: Arabian Horsemen's Distress Fund, Arabian Horse Promotional Fund, Friends of Vail Foundation, Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge, Hoofbeatz USA, Horses Help, March of Dimes, JDRF, Scottsdale Community College, Stallion Stampede, and Youth For Troops.
