Mozambique V++++// at the 2019 Canadian Nationals

(Botswana x Misti Morn V)

Grey Gelding Foaled 04/02/14

Owned by Debbie and Dayton Canaday

 
 
This is his first time at the Canadian Nationals & in his/our very first ever national English Trail class, we placed Reserve National Champion and he has the Rozes to prove it.

He was relaxed (more than me) and acted like he was supposed to be there, with the exception of the "Pink Flowers".  Something about pink, who knows?

Thought you would like to see the quick photo op thanks to Dayton.
 
We had two go rounds, a semi final round and once qualified moving on to the Final round today.Yesterday he acted his age, but today, he knew exactly what to do, and the judges rewarded him.
 
Thank you for all your support, Team Mozes is extremely grateful!
 
 
 

 

 

 

Audacious ps - The grand gentleman of Varian Arabians

April 9, 1994 – February 14, 2019

Sheila was not discretionary in the loving relationships she established with particular horses.

They need not have been bred by her for her to love them.
They need not have been showered with accolades for her to love them.
They need not have been a certain ‘look’ she cherished for her to love them.

They only needed to speak to her soul, and then she pledged her care and devotion to them for the rest of their days. No holds barred. No condition attached.

Besides a rare few in her life, the likes of Bay-Abi, Ronteza, and Huckleberry Bey, one horse stole her heart in a profound way, as he did nearly every other living being – horse or animal – who ever met him.

Audacious ps and Sheila seemed to enter into this wordless, beautiful dance together every time they were in the same ring… Sheila standing in the middle, smiling from ear to ear as the ethereal and soulful white stallion played around her, and with her.

Audacious was easy to love. Beyond his unforgettable beauty – including those famous tipped-in ears, liquid eyes, and quintessential flagged tail – Audacious oozed with a gentle, otherworldly joy, anointing those around him with a special reminder that the world is just as it should be, that beauty can be seen everywhere around us, and that joy is ours for the taking.

It is no wonder Sheila loved him so.

Did you know that when we started his Facebook page in 2014, he amassed a worldwide following of thousands of people in only a matter of months? The world saw this special soul and fell in love with him just as Sheila did. Sheila is nobody’s fool… she found Audacious at the ripe age of fifteen years of age and gave him the world stage he deserved. He thrived at Varian Arabians for the remainder of his days, just as Sheila had promised.

Audacious was lovingly laid to rest on Valentine’s Day.. of all days. The irony. On first glance, it seems to add another layer of pain to a colossal heap of heartbreak. 

And yet, what did Audacious always communicate to us? Yes, the world is as it should be. Yes, there is beauty all around us. And, yes, joy is ours for the taking. Maybe – just maybe – it was his way of reminding us of these truths on the one day of the year that is dedicated to all that he stood for… Love. And from that place, it suddenly feels… just as it should be. 

There will never be another Audacious ps, just as there will never be another Sheila Varian.

But their legacies and their truths will live on in our hearts. And even though he didn’t display the royal “V” on his hip, Audacious will forever be intertwined with the most poignant values represented in the Power of the V. 

 Rest in peace, dear Audacious. We are better because of you.

Greetings Angela, Allison, & Dorothy,
 
Here to give you an update of our 2018 Region 6 Championship show in Douglas, Wyoming.
 
As any show can go there are ups and downs, yet our young mighty mouse stood up to all the challenges. From his first 3 day journey for a distant show to competing in an outside dressage court at 2 pm with the temperature at 102!
He gave it an honest effort. Sometimes the judges rewarded him and sometimes there were politics involved which goes with the territory.

In the pre-show he earned:
4- first place
8- seconds
1- fourth

In the Regional show he earned:
2 Champions (Western Dressage & Main ring Halter)
7 Reserve Champions (Western Dressage, Hunter Pl, Main ring Halter, Sport Horse in Hand, Sport Horse under Saddle, Dressage)
4 Top Fives
A total of 51.5 achievement points for both shows. 

As proud parents we are pleased to announce that Mozes has earned a total of 108 achievement points in just 3 shows, which gives him his first and second "++"  as he earned points in both performance and halter!!!!!!!!!!!
We are just a mom and pop team, doing the whole job ourselves, from the driving, cleaning, feeding, prepping, and showing. Yet all the hard work is paying off with his success.
 
After much consideration and many, many more hours of training, and trail riding, we have decided to stick our toes in the waters of the Arabian Sport Horse Nationals (aka SHN) this September in Nampa, Idaho.
We will be entering him in just 3 performance classes and 2 ATH in hand classes. The performance classes will be Sport Horse Under Saddle Jr horse, Training Level Jr horse, and the $$ class of Young Horse Dressage Prospective. We are going conservative with his classes due to his age and physical maturity.
 
That is all we have to report for now. Hoping we made our breeder, stallion owner, and fan proud!
We are grateful to have you as a support team!

Dayton & Debbie

ps - For your viewing pleasure, please see photos below.
Mozes was High Scoring Western Dressage both in the pre show & the Regionals.

The quality of his progeny is undeniable, and it is apparent that Major Mac V is quickly moving from freshman sire status to a proven ability in what he consistently produces. 

We are so proud of him, and we know Sheila would be as well. Major Mac V has been able to do what few breeding stallions can do: Become a sought-after, world-class breeding stallion with a global following, all while never having stepped foot in a show ring. 

And that is how it will stay.  Incredible video taken in October 2019 on our slideshow on Home Page.

He came in a Prince, and now he is rightfully King of Varian Arabians.
