I am sponsored by Arabian Horse Association of Arizona.
My artist is Wendy Morris-Tank.
I am here to support Arabian Horsemen's Distress Fund.
And I have a story for you.......
Wendy Morris-Tank is a fantastic local artist and horse person. She has made it her life’s work to bring the wonder and beauty of horses to others. It is said if you add certain spices to a horse’s diet you can subtlety change the color of the horse’s coat. Well when you look at her amazing horse Assad, you might think that instead of a spice like paprika that was put in his food, Wendy put in Magic with his food. That magic is easy to see in the glow of Assad’s body
Wendy moved here in 1964 with her family from Long Island, New York. When she was eight years old Wendy acquired her first horse, and the love affair has been growing ever since. Assad is just the latest in a long line of amazing artistic works she has created that have horses as the focus. Her ties with the Scottsdale horse community is strong. She has created beautiful works of art that have been used as awards for high achievement in horsemanship, in addition to being auctioned to raise money for the many good works they do both in and out of the horse community.
Assad is the mirror image of a majestic horse that her friend owns. Wendy knew that this artistic showpiece will convey to the world the beauty and power of these Arabian horses to a whole new set of people outside of the horse community. Both her and her friend are thrilled with that prospect.When you bid on Assad, you will have the respect and admiration of the devoted Arabian Horse Community behind you. Assad is on a mission to bring that nobility and power to wherever you decide to display him.
Wendy also has another beautiful Arabian horse in the Stallion Stampede named Desert Prince. Arabians are hot-blooded horses that can go the distance and not flinch or back down. That is certainly the case with the spirit of both Assad and Desert Prince. What a compelling visual message Assad will bring to any location where he is present.
Wendy is a Local Artist and horse women.
The unexpected crisis can happen to any of us at any time, and we have little control, no matter how careful, over when, how, or where. What we do have control over is whether we are able to find a positive path out of any given disaster. The dollars your donation represents is important, but what really makes the magic is the little bit of extra courage that each donation sends to one of our community members immediately after an unexpected catastrophe. Thank you for Being An Arabian Horseman Who Helps!
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.
