The Arabian Element is a very special place. It’s a place where honesty, integrity, passion, and dedication all come together. The Arabian Element is the culmination of dreams, hope, inspiration, hard work, and determination. Our breeding program centers around our very special group of breeding mares who contribute the blood of *El Shaklan, Padrons Psyche, Ali Jamaal, and Thee Desperado. The Arabian Element is home to a very impressive group of Arabian horses whose pedigrees represent show ring champions and champion producers from around the world. We are passionately focused on breeding and representing Arabian horses of extreme beauty and quality, Arabian horses that are capable of both producing and winning at the highest levels of competition around the world. Albeit cliché, we believe in quality over quantity and offer a world class Arabian horse boutique, offering and thoughtfully breeding only but the most beautiful and selectively chosen Arabian horses.
My first introduction to the Arabian horse was in 1989, a close family friend owned an Arabian horse farm outside of Ottawa. At the time we lived in the city, and of course, every Sunday we’d drive out to spend the day up at “the farm”. The love affair of Arabian horses quickly engulfed my world. The love of my life, a 20 year old bay Flarigo daughter, “Bari”, quickly brought out the love of horses and the affinity of horse husbandry in me. As the years passed, I always looked forward to Sunday’s at the farm. Throughout grade school, my weekly school Monday journal entry always had something to do with horses and the time spent up at the farm. As with most horse-crazy-kid stories, I never had a horse of my own, but it didn’t stop me from loving and enjoying every moment. As with some unfortunate life events, priorities shifted and farm time became less and less. It wasn’t until summer of 1998 that my love for Arabian horses was reignited. I received a copy of the Arabian Horse World Quarterly for my birthday. On the cover was a beautiful picture of a group of white mares pictured with The Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts. Out of all the pages in the magazine, the only one I ripped out and hung on my bedroom wall was that of a bay (actually grey) new born filly dancing in the desert – it was an ad for Amurath Anastasia owned by Amurath Arabians of Scottsdale announcing that “a new desert flower had bloomed”. Over the next few years I did whatever I could to be around horses. Coincidentally, I later leased a gelding by Amurath Baikal. He was a snow-white giant and probably was the best thing to ever happen to me . This gelding taught me so much and most importantly he taught me how to care and love for him. He was my very best friend and we won many championships in Hunter Pleasure and enjoyed success in the Halter division as well. As I began to immerse myself in reading up and studying all I could about Arabian horses, pedigrees, trainers, stables and farms, using magazines and the Internet as encyclopedias – I started to absorb everything my memory would remember. It was October of 2002 that I attended my first U.S. National Championships in Louisville, Kentucky. From the moment I stepped into Freedom Hall, it solidified everything I felt about the Arabian horse and I knew right away that I wanted to share my life with Arabian horses.
Apollo El Jamaal, who I acquired as a six month old, was the path that led to the evolution of The Arabian Element. Sired by the Ali Jamaal son, *Jullyen El Jamaal, and out of the Brazilian National Champion mare, *Apollonia HCF (herself a full sister to *Ynazia HCF, the dam of Van Gogh AM) - *Apollo El Jamaal embodied so many of the characteristics I have come to admire in an Arabian horse. His charisma and attitude was very alluring, his presence and aura captivated you immediately, and his pedigree so rare to be found in any one individual. *Apollo El Jamaal is what dreams are made of. His ability to sire extremely beautiful foals echoed throughout the Arabian horse community which led to his sale and export to the Middle East where he went on to be crowned National Champion Senior Stallion of Jordan for his new owners (and my very dear friends) Mr. & Mrs. Kahook. Apollo's first foal for me (and the very first horse I bred) was a very beautiful chestnut filly by the name of *Sonjadora El Jamaal. Sonjadora is out of my Psymadre daughter Last Luv and was sold and exported to Europe as a weanling. The second foal by *Apollo El Jamaal, and again bred by me, was an extremely beautiful chestnut filly named Bettina El Jamaal. Bettina is again out of Last Luv. 2010 saw fruition of The Arabian Element and the success of *Apollo El Jamaal as a sire – Bettina El Jamaal was named Region 15 Reserve Champion Yearling Filly out of a beautiful class of top-notch show fillies. It is moments like these that make one so proud to be involved with the Arabian horse.
Many people associate me with the very successful ArabianCentric.com website, an international creative agency I developed to market and advertise Arabian horse farms, stallions, and trainers from all over the world. What people sometimes don’t know or realize is that I am also a breeder of truly beautiful Arabian horses, advocating and involving myself in many aspects of our industry for the betterment and welfare of this incredible breed. My Arabian horse involvement has given me the opportunity to travel Canada, the United States, Europe as well as the Middle East. It has allowed me to witness and observe some of the most beautiful Arabian horses showing and breeding today, to appreciate show ring victory and defeat. Travel has taught me much in that it has allowed me to see many horses and bring their pedigrees to reality, it’s allowed me to ask questions, establish friendships with some of the most wonderful people, and most importantly, it has given me a deeper appreciation and love for this incredible breed. It's also allowed me to experience other cultures and become informed about the world outside of Arabian horses.
The horses from our program have been sold and exported throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, and the Middle East - our program is gaining momentum and consistently attracting the admiration and interest of many breeders and trainers from around the globe. My innate ability to evaluate a horse both phenotypically and genotypically without bias has allowed me to develop a strong reputation for successfully breeding and marketing beautiful, true-to-type, and athletic Arabian horses with the characteristics and pedigrees to be successful and appreciated anywhere, both in the show ring and the breeding shed. The most important thing here at The Arabian Element is to always maintain the welfare and well-being of the Arabian horse first and foremost. We are so proud of our reputation and accomplishments and even more proud of the success our clients have achieved with our guidance. We continue to work hard at maintaining and establishing long lasting friendships with enthusiasts, breeders, owners, and trainers around the world. We are so lucky to share our lives with the proud and noble Arabian horse and we hope you enjoy this web site and use it as a tool to stay informed and keep updated on the happenings going on here at The Arabian Element. We invite serious inquiries on any of our sale horses and always entertain the idea of adding new horses to our program.
