inspection included Jamie Bratt, our new NASS newsletter editor, and Anita Erlander, representing the Desert Arabian Horse Institute, who came to observe our inspection process.


The inspection started Saturday morning with four stallions being presented for approval. The first stallion was the well proportioned six-year-old bay, *Hadban (Harapnik x *Irahna), owned by Adele and bred by Joseph Weiss. I saw this stallion three years ago, when he was very immature and not in the best condition; the improvement seen with maturity and conditioning was quite impressive.

We then saw the gray stallion, Nikolas Royale AF, sired by Shagya Royal AF out of the imported Balaton daughter *Niobe; he is bred and owned by Adele. Already 15.3 hands at three years of age, he impressed us with his noble Shagya type, charismatic presence, and lovely movement.
