Windy Bey V has been a hidden treasure. Purchased by a small breeder from Varian when he was three, he had a brief but successful show career with regional titles in halter and hunt pleasure. Until now he has had very limited use at stud but we welcome him to the Varian stallion lineup where he will at last have ample opportunity to prove himself in the breeding barn. Not only is he a son of the legendary Desperado V, he carries the black coat color gene from both sides of his ancestry as his dam was black.

Desperado V needs little introduction as he is one of the most beloved Varian sires. His sire statistics are most impressive, with National winners to his credit through September 2019. His National Champion get include National Champions in sport horse in hand, main ring halter, reining, trail, working cow horse, hunt pleasure, sport horse under saddle, dressage, show hack, and western pleasure. 63 Desperado V get have produced National winners through September 2019, and their National Champion offspring include National Champions in hunt pleasure, western pleasure, training level dressage, English show hack, sport horse halter, and main ring halter. Desperado V sons hold a number of distinctions. His deceased son Sundance Kid V was, during his lifetime, the leading living sire of National winners in hunt pleasure and western pleasure. His son Mirage V++++/ is tied for first as a leading sire of in hand winners at the 2019 Sport Horse Nationals. Another Desperado V son with a superb sire record is Maclintock V, who like Windy Bey V was brought back to Varian Arabians as an older stallion. 86% of his shown get are champions and his get bred at Varian have won National Championships in western pleasure, sport horse in hand, sport horse under saddle, sport horse show hack, working hunter and trail.

Windy Bey V's dam is linebred to U.S. National Champion Stallion and Park *Bask++ with three lines to him, and she traces in sire line to U.S. National Champion Stallion Bay-Abi++, the Varian foundation sire. Willow Bey V is by multiple halter champion S-Shah Bask, whose get have won National titles in hunt pleasure and sidesaddle and a National Championship in halter S-Shah Bask daughters have produced National Champions in hunt pleasure and sidesaddle and National winners in sport horse under saddle and dressage. S-Shah Bask is a son of U.S. Reserve National Champion Stallion Bey Shah+, whose 116 National winners include National Champions in halter, western pleasure, trail and dressage. S-Shah Bask is a maternal brother to multiple National Champion Halter and National Champion producer Belindaa. World Champion Mozn Al Bidayer is from the same dam line as S-Shah Bask.

Willow Bey V is out of Gypsy Mmusic, who traces to 4 U.S. National Champion Stallions. Gypsy Mmusic is a daughter of U.S. National Champion Stallion Strike, a sire of National Champions in halter, english pleasure, country pleasure, show hack and working hunter. Strike daughters are cherished broodmares and have produced National Champions in halter, country pleasure, western pleasure, reining, ranch riding, hunt pleasure, sport horse in hand, sport horse under saddle, and dressage. The Varian sire Major Mac V traces to Strike on the dam side of his pedigree. Gypsy Mmusic's dam GF Gabriella is by Legion of Supreme Merit Overlook Jordji+++, whose full brother Remington Steele++ was the only stallion to compete the gruelling Tevis Cup endurance ride and later to win a U.S. Top Ten title in halter. GF Gabriella's dam Debonnette is the granddam of a multiple National Champion in upper level dressage and sport horse carriage driving. Windy Bey V was bred to sire athletes!

Now owned by Varian Arabians.

 As a Desperado V son, he has been a wonderful addition to our stallion barn and breeding program.

Breeding to a "V" stallion, allows you to add the V at the end of your foals name
and also the choice to brand your foal as a yearling with the V on left hip.

Aces To Wind

(Windy Bey V x Ashai Grace V)

Aces to Wind






Kind, willing,smart, eager to learn, eager to please, people-loving, curious, beautiful, good with kids, gentle, sound, healthy, in-your-pocket Windy Bey V’s get have lived with us for over 10 years. They are respectful of their humans but endlessly curious and eager to be with their peeps. The geldings are quite gentlemanly and live with their sisters in harmony. The mares are strong, independent types who hold their own with the fellas. All have inherited Wendy’s beautiful mane and tail - lush, luxurious hair with a hint of waves. None have had health issues - no colic, lameness, or other problems. Those that have left the property for training have adapted quite well to new surroundings and challenges.

Those that have been trained are lovely to ride. We put riders of all ages and abilities on them and they rise to the challenge beautifully. Children as young as 5 have ridden Aces to Wind, who accepted this challenge with aplomb!

The one half-Arab in the bunch is a fantastic tri-colored paint gelding. He has very strong bone and a beautiful coat. Despite being orphaned soon after birth, he grew up to be a benevolent herd leader and the one who loves people most of all.

Hi Angela;
Since you haven't been with Windy Bey V since you foaled him out and I brought him to Indiana when he was three (and Jaime had about 10 rides on him), I wanted to let you know a bit about his life with me and the foals he produced. First off I had virtually no experience with a stallion, let alone a 3 year old one. From the moment he stepped off the trailer, he was ALWAYS ready to do anything so long as it was with his people. He loved endless grooming, patient and tolerant of the farrier, vet, breeding duties. Always a gentleman regardless of the circumstances his entire life. Even at 3 he could be lead by anyone, even a 4 year old child.
His first show season we decided to let him do a few halter classes to get used to the atmosphere. I remember giving him a bath with his trainer and she asked if I was comfortable by myself walking him around the grounds to get him dry and used to the sights and sounds. Not realizing until many shows later what a disaster that could have been, Windy and I took off on a long and complete tour of every part of the show grounds and all the while he was very interested in everything including other mares and stallions, but never once made me even the slightest bit concerned that he would act up. Of course, after that success it was always my job at shows to "show him around" and "show him off" because he attracted so many stares, questions, and compliments. 
Our last halter class was Regional competition in Springfield, IL. I hesitate to tell you this because it was such a dumb thing to do, but I guess we all do dumb things. Anyway, we didn't have any extra help and I was the only one who had time to get Windy ready, but I had hurt my back and couldn't bend over to sand and polish his feet. Did I mention there was a tornado warning and violent thunder storm going on? Well, he had to look his best so I laid down on my side in the sliver of space behind him  and did his feet for that class. Not smart on my part, but Windy always rose to the occasion and took care of me.
As a riding horse he was always laser focused on his rider. I am not a good rider, but I can usually stay on a horse even though I was about 50 years old at that time. I was going to do a rollback for the first time on him. The instant I asked he rolled back and he was so powerful and fluid I am sure I was grinning from ear to ear. I had come up from the saddle a little and pulled myself back down, well that was his signal to lock em up and he put that hind end down. I thought "geez am I screwing this up", so I gave him the tiniest bit of leg and woo hoo he sprang forward from that butt in the ground stop. Poor guy!  That whole series of moves probably only too two or three seconds, but he took an entire round of the arena at a baby trot for me to convince him I could keep up with him if he gave me another chance. Off we went, him being the Ferrari and me being the sack of potatoes with an ear to ear grin every time I rode him. And when you were done with the ride he was always totally content to just quietly stand there still mounted waiting for the next adventure. I never was a good enough rider to perform at his top level, but oh my was he a fun ride every time! 
The years went by and he never changed, he is not mischievous, never tries to get away with anything, always focused on his job, so kind and even tempered, not high maintenance. His foals are all different but I call them horses with "the easy button". Never been in a trailer? No problem! Have to lead one through a storm with lightening cracking all around? No problem! Here's a good example. One of the fillies living in pasture had an eye scratch which needed medication. One of those things you expect to be a hassle right? First day I took eye ointment, halter and lead rope but the second day I forgot the halter and lead. Long walk back to get them, so I will just go out to her in the field and see what happens. Walked into herd and put it in her eye without any restraint at all, so I medicated her just that way until treatment was complete. Easy! 
I could tell dozens of stories but I hope I have illustrated the point that Windy sires horses you want to keep for a lifetime. They live outside here in Indiana (with run ins) and are very strong and healthy. No injuries when they went to training and they all seemed equally content to live in stalls when called for. They live in a mixed herd and do well. I was breeding for hunter or western disciplines, but Windy would have been good in dressage and he has had at least one foal who was totally built for dressage. Interesting to note, that out of a very minimally marked black and white half arab paint he produced a fabulous tri color paint who was orphaned as a foal and is now my riding horse. He is a farm favorite. Personally, I think he turned out well because Ashai Grace V nursed her colt (Aces to Wind see video) and the paint orphan both. 
I still have 8 of his foals at home and could not be happier with them. They are all trusting, reliable, healthy, athletic, and useful. Extremely beautiful, but so much more. Windy is a top shelf stallion who will not disappoint. Anyone can see how beautiful and correct he is on the outside, but he is even more beautiful on the inside. I hope to see many pics and video of all the babies he produces! 
All the best,
Gayle Mack
