HH Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan... W'rsan Stables
From Abu Dhabi, UAE
"Al Khattar W'rsan has just come 4th in the Elementary test of the World Dressage Challenge, you can see the full results on the FEI website. Our horses did very well, Al Mijlas W'rsan won the Medium level test, and of course this is open competition, we are often the only Arabians."
- Deirdre Hyde
In August of 2000 Patti, her son Tory Bailey, and Jerel Harris hosted HH
Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyans sons, the Royal Princes Hazza and
Khalid, to ride the Tevis trail in 4 days as a training ride, camping out
in the wilderness along the way. It was their Highnesses first trip
to the USA and the trail terrain, food, and our customs, a new experience
for them. It is an exciting story which we will expand on when Wrsan
Stables is our featured client. A great time and incredible learning experience
was had by all!
Prince Hazza was surprised and delighted to find we had a Sambist son II Damb Much who was two at the time. The Royal Family had previously arranged to purchase two mares from us ... the lovely Remington Steele*++ daughter Lady Steele Amie and the Flars Moon Seeqr daughter SQR Moondance thanks to the help of Nat Gorham and Barbara Schuler.
We were thrilled that Amie was bred to the spectacular race horse Monarch AH and produced Al Khattar W'rsan owned by HH Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, UAE and managed by our dear friend, the very astute horsewoman Deirdre Hyde.
