and thank you...
...for dropping by. We
have to say, that after having spent the last many weeks (early 2013) updating
our website, we feel a deep sense of pride and satisfaction at the many horses
we have bred over the years - their beauty - their quality - their ability to be
wonderful companions - beautiful animals and highly successful athletes.
...so stay awhile and enjoy our beautiful Arabians....
...some pages (our favourites) you may want to check out first...
We are very proud of the show records of the Rideaufield bred and
sired horses. Although we are a small breeding farm, our horses are
consistently competitive across North America both in halter and under saddle.
Currently (2013) the most titled National Mare, WC Ciao Bella+/, owned and
bred by Holly Dillin of Western Cross Ranch, is sired by Xceptshahn.
Also, one of the top Nationally titled half arabian geldings, Maghnus Z+/, bred
by Jennifer Wilson and owned by Amelia Hruban, is out of an Amurath Baikal
daughter who is out of our Three-B Rasheik++ daughter, Comin Up Roses. To see
more about some of these Champion Arabian horses, go to our
Show Results page....

- our Amurath Baikal son out of our beautiful Top Ten Bey Shah+ daughter, NV
Masira - Earl Grey++/ himself a US National Top Ten Futurity winner and a
Regional Champion Halter and Performance horse. We are thrilled with his ability to produce Champion offspring that are both athletic and
beautiful. Little wonder that he himself, after starting out so
successfully as a halter horse, has become a breathtaking sight in the
performance ring - having won the Regional Championship in Hunter Pleasure, ATR
in both 2008 and 2009! 2011 was a stellar year - after having won
regional championships in both Regions 16 and 18 he went on to the US Nationals
to come home with a US National Top Ten Hunter Pleasure AATR Select Rider (owner
Janie Greenberg showing). See Janie and
"Paddy" on You Tube by going here:
You may also enjoy seeing a video of his winning the 2009 Region 16 Championship You Tube by

more about Earl Grey++/...
- This Bey Shah+ son, out of a Khemosabi++++ daughter (RSD Khaptivation),
is siring true to his pedigree - National winning halter and performance horses,
horses that are capable of winning both at halter and under saddle, with both
open and amateur riders - a quality not found often enough in our breed.
An unsung breeder of champions - he often shows up on the list of Top Sires of
Regional winners. He has had an incredibly high percentage of AHA Horse
Achievement Awards winners.
