Fall horseback riders toured four local Arabian horse farms for a Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum sponsored event. They watched horses fly around the arena at world-renown Om El Arabian International. They met a few National Champions at Jade Creek Arabians. At Santa Lucia Farm, a breeding; veterinary; and layup facility, they listened to a lecture about the reproductive physiology of horses. And at Silver Maple Farm, they watched some impressive horses being put through their paces and learned about Egyptian Arabians. Many thanks to Marguerite for organizing the field trip!
