With multiple farms located in Arizona, they have become an influential player in both the halter and under saddle divisions. Today, we will focus on the Royal performance horses and those of their clients headed to the most important show of the year – U.S. Nationals.

The Arabian Jockey Club (AJC) is the official non-profit representation of Arabian racing in the United States and manages the Arabian Racing Hall of Fame (for horses) and Tent of Honor (for people) inductions. This year, it proudly introduces two deserving individuals for each category.
Celebrating 25 years in 2023, this program has grown to serve girls in ways that were even beyond the founders’ dreams. Staff, volunteers, and horses have helped over 5,000 girls since 1998. Although Taking the Reins has evolved its services, the core of what they do remains true.
