Simply The Best (Amurath  Baikal  x  NV Masira)

1994 Bay Purebred Arabian Mare

She is aptly named...Simply The Best. From the moment she was born, she was beautiful both in mind and body. A beautiful face with huge soft eyes, a lovely long shapely neck, very refined through the body and the legs and a 'tail up over the back' attitude.  Simply is the favourite of most farm visitors. 

In the show ring Simply has excelled. Region 16 Top Five Yearling Sweepstakes Champion - then  Region 16 Champion Mare at age 3 and East Coast Champion Mare at age 4.  In 2004 at age 10, Simply returned to showing and was named Supreme Champion Arabian at the Tulip Arabian Festival. In the words of the judge: "this horse epitomizes what to me is the true Arabian mare."

Simply was on breeding lease to Shea  Stables of St. Clair, MI and produced for them a 2001 Padrons Psyche filly, Simply Gorgeous, and a 2003 Afire Bey V daughter, Simply Afire - 2011  US National Champion Country English Pleasure AOTR 18-35 and Top Ten Open. 

She also produced for us Simply On Fire RF, by Afire Bey V who will make her show ring debut in 2013 in the Country English Pleasure Division with Equistar Training Center, PA.  And Rideaufield has just purchased in partnership with Leslie Lloyd, her 2009 Afire Bey V son, Heritage Afire. 

Simply has also produced an outstanding colt in 2005 by our own Xceptshahn.  This young fellow, Xceptshahnal Call RF is now a breeding stallion in Nova Scotia with Terri Braithwaite.  A full brother to Xceptshahnal Call RF, The X Factor RF, is owned by Wendy Carnegie in Manitoba, to be her 50 and 100 mile endurance horse.

Simply The Best  foaled a beautiful Pomerol daughter, Simply Unique RF,  ("Nikki") in 2006  - Champion Hunter Pleasure her first time off the farm.  She has been retained by Rideaufield Farms.

From a wonderful show horse to a wonderful mother, to a wonderful riding companion on the trails, she really is Simply The Best!

Alia Nazada (*Ibn Safinaz x Alas Canadia)

1990 Grey Purebred Arabian mare - Arabian Horse World Aristocrat Mare

Alia Nazada ("Leah") herself was East Coast and Egyptian Event Futurity Champion as a yearling.  Although never shown under saddle, she was trained by Stachowski Farms and is a lovely Western Pleasure horse.  She is a tall long necked, deep bodied, very correct mare.  She has proven herself over and over as a brood mare of extreme merit.

At the 2004 Eastern Canadian Breeders Championships, three of Leah's babies were in the Top Six placements, including the Champion and the Reserve Champion.  Perhaps her best known daughters are  Pretty Woman + (2004 Region 16 Champion Mare, Open and AOTH, three-time Eastern Canadian Breeders Champion Mare and multi Hunter Pleasure Champion - and Liz Taylor RF, owned by Faye Sampson of Pennsylvania, 2004 Eastern Canadian Breeders Reserve Champion Mare and Region 18 Top Five Mare AOTH.  A Questionable Lady, her daughter by Close  Call (x Amurath Baikal), was also Top Six in the Mare Class and the Western Pleasure Division of the Eastern Canadian Breeders Championships.   She is owned by Wanda Burrows. 

No less outstanding, are  her other offspring  by Xceptshahn: Xceptshahnelle Woman RF - Region 16 Champion 2-year-old Filly and Top Five Open Mare; Colorado RF++/ - Region 16 Champion Stallion and Champion 2-year-old Colt and Region 18 Champion Gelding,  and National Top Ten under saddle.  Nevada RF Eastern Canadian Breeders Champion - Yearling Filly and Yearling Futurity Filly.

Leah's next two foals were by Pomerol - Romance in Rome RF - Champion Halter first time out - Evening in Paris RF - in the Maritimes preparing for a career in endurance riding.

And Denver RF (2011) by Xceptshahn - perhaps one of her best babies - a tall elegant gelding who will be tops both in halter and under saddle, owned by Rideaufield Farms.

Leah is in foal to Xceptshahn for 2013 and is on a breeding lease to Angie Alguire, Double A Stables, ON.

Xceptshahnally Maid  (Xceptshahn x Maid in Canada)

1997 Bay Purebred Arabian Mare

Xceptshahnally Maid represents three generations of Rideaufield breeding.  She is an Xceptshahn daughter out of a double Three-B Rasheik++ daughter.  "Shahna" is  15.2 hands, an extremely correct individual.  She was Region 16 Top Five Yearling Filly and her first offspring to show, Maid of the Mist RF, owned by the Punter family, has proven her to be a Champion producer.  She  produced an equally exceptional filly, also by Amurath Baikal, in 2004 (Maid Marion RF) who was undefeated in halter.  Xceptshahnally Maid then produced three foals by Pomerol - the  Champion colt, The Bronze RF (aka "the Fonz"), Maid of Honour RF and All Maid Up RF - both beautiful fillies, but unshown to date.  She is expecting a foal for 2013 by Earl Grey++/

2003 Grey Half Arabian Mare

Foaled April 4, 2003. Gorgeous  grey mare. Tall, extremely long, fine, hooky neck, beautiful face and wonderfully correct.   2004 Region 16 Champion Yearling Sweepstakes Half Arabian Filly and Top Five Filly at Region 15.  The year before that, at just eight weeks of age, she was Champion Half Arabian, both Open and Amateur at the Tulip Arabian Horse Festival. "Phoebe" is an outstanding show horse with just the right attitude, but an absolute love to deal with in every respect.  She is obviously outstanding in conformational quality as is evidenced by her  show record.

As we would have expected, Phoebe has moved forward and done exceeding well under saddle - achieving her Legion of Honor - as a three-year-old, her Legion of Merit  - (coming to within one point of her Supreme Legion of  Merit) as a four-year-old!  Region of Supreme Honor in 2008 and Legion of Supreme Merit in 2009!  She has more than enough points for the Legion of Supreme Masters, but has never been shown at a National level.
