AH Fareed Rafiks sire, TDR White Stone, is son of Champion producer, Ravenwood Royalty, Ralph Lauren Horse Model, who is a famous movie star, and too, for producing deep heart girths, laid back shoulders, long hips & short coupling get with loads of performance horse talent!. TDR White Stone, himself is 2 time USEF Horse of the Year Reining Champion, and a Nationals qualified Stallion.
Most of his offspring have been exported. They are spread out in at least 9 countries from Canada to Honduras & Mexico, to South Africa & Europe. TDR White Stone himself was just recently exported to China!! He has an exceptional pedigree with many EAO imports up close. He is a versatile Arabian Sport Horse having been trained in several disciplines which include trail riding, western, reining, & jumping. TDR White Stones Dam, Eaglet was a champion producer, including multi Champion Ibn Alih. Eaglet is of the El Samraa line tail female line. He has halter winning get in many countries and has recently been exported to China.
As of March 2011 he has been shown in one show, in 2010, as a 22 month old. It was in the beginning of the season at an All Breed Open Show all the horses there were a bit full of themselves, and all the mares there were VERY in-season. Rafiks first class that he was shown in was the 2-3yr old class (6 in all) which he took a 3rd & his purebred sister, Niyah, took 1st , the next class that he was shown in was the Maiden class (which a horse and handler can enter if they have not ever won a 1st or 2nd place before) of which there were 16 in all and Rafik earned a Blue Ribbon for 1st place! The next class was the Arabian class (4 in all) which he took 2nd & his purebred sister, Niyah, took 1st. So he did very well at his first and only show.
Arabian Haven Ranch did very well that day. Niyah, Rafiks purebred Arabian sister also won Grand Champion of all Breeds in halter that day with our daughter Rebecca Schultz as her handler! I prefer to go to Open shows as they are not only more relaxed for the horse & we are also able to show people that Arabians can compete against all breeds and are a very easy going, family oriented & versatile breed of horse, Even the Stallions!
