2016 Varian Arabians Summer Jubilee
A Celebration of Life for Sheila Varian

August 6-7, 2016

2016 Varian Arabians Summer Jubilee


This year our Summer Jubilee will have much of the activities that people look forward to each year.  As always we will present the Varian stallions Audacious ps and Major Mac V and our offerings of "V" sale horses. You'll enjoy fabulous food including a continental breakfast and Santa Maria style BBQ lunch on Saturday and our Champagne Brunch on Sunday after the famous Varian Arabians Mare Walk. There will be educational programs throughout the weekend with two dynamic clinicians: Lester Buckley (as seen in "The First of Many" video) and national-level performance trainer Rob Bick. And you can shop til you drop at our hand-picked vendors, from high quality western jewelry to Vaquero tack.

But this year's Summer Jubilee also carries the weight of historical significance, as we will dedicate the entire weekend to celebrating the incredible life of Sheila Varian. This will be the first Summer Jubilee without her physical presence. Yet she will be with us in spirit as we celebrate her historical achievements, unforgettable stories, and the horses that fulfilled her passion. The weekend will feature first-hand stories of highlights in Sheila's life from people who were alongside her... similar to what viewers watched in "V: The Legacy of Sheila Varian," but in first-hand, unedited fashion. For example, hear Dr. Wes Hoskins describe the auction where his homebred, Bay-Abi, was purchased by a young girl named Sheila Varian, and her mother Wenonah.

It will be a weekend dedicated to celebrating history, and celebrating Sheila.

We expect this event to sell out quickly with record attendance anticipated. So we are advising guests to purchase tickets early.

Looking forward to seeing you in August.
