    It's official

    My Half-Arabian, Half-Saddlebred mare won her AHA Legion of Honor!

    For those that don't know, the Arabian Horse Association has a lifetime achievement awards program that a horse can earn points in just about any competition. For half-Arabians, they must earn 60 points for the Legion of Honor. For that, a horse gets a "+" appended to their names.

    So, Party Party (aka Izzie) is now Party Party+

    It took 11 years, well, 2002-2006 I didn't compete on her, so really just 6 years, but still.

    Considering I don't go to that many rides a year, it's quite an accomplishment since she has so many firsts and high points.

    Love my gal [​IMG]

    Yes,

    Izz also earned a Region XIII Top 5 in HA Yearling Halter but for some reason it didn't earn any points. [​IMG] But it is noted on her competition record though.

    Though her sire is well-known for Park, Saddleseat and Dressage offspring, Izzie and her half-brother Pearl Jam have made quite a name for themselves in distance riding. We've seen Pearl Jam at rides although I've never had a chance to talk to his owner. He's a purebred Arab

    Congrats!

    You said her sire is well known....may I ask who he was?

    If her looks are anything, I am guessing Ansata lines which alot of their Arabs are flea bitten gray. The other one would be Raffles breeding. I love to guess!
