This was her “Debut” with Desert Riders (a club started in 1930). She was a star and everyone complemented her looks, manner and how calm she is!!! The first time I took her to Joshua Tree ponying her on an informal ride with a a few friends, I got three phone calls with offers to buy her!!! The funny thing is that NONE of them would EVER have even thought of getting an Arabian!!!
I know you receive a million emails on how wonderful Varian breeding is. I just wanted to add to that. My beloved heart horse, Karalace Bey+, was bred to Major Mac V. This breeding was a spur of the moment breeding. I had a lovely talk with Sheila and Major Mac was her choice for my mare. My filly is 1 1/2 now and I could not be happier. She is growing up out in pasture with Dean and Sheri Lacey. The Lacey’s are more than impressed with this filly, which coming from people that have lived and breathed the breed for generations, one can appreciate their opinion. I unfortunately lost my Karalace last month to parotid melanoma......this filly has big shoes to fill, but seeing her and handling her tells me that she will be more than up to that challenge. Look for her in the future. She will be shown and then will follow in her mommas footsteps out on the endurance circuit. Never did I think that I would own, let alone breed, a mare of this caliber. Thank you for your continued dedication to Sheila’s vision of this amazing breed!!!

I told Johanna (Ullström) I wanted to breed not only a pretty Arabian, but also one that could function properly. What was the point of having an extreme face, but no legs, no back, no shoulder or no hip? I wanted to breed a horse that could be remembered as a complete horse, and not only good to look at in a luxury stall. My love for logic and reason told me that breeding was passing on a healthy genetic pool that had to enable fitness and survival down the road, for the benefit of future generations. A horse had to stay horse. The answer to my question was, after browsing all options around the world, and without any doubt: Sheila Varian. Well, Sheila being a very dear friend, on top of producing some of the most admired Arabians in the world, bred for ultimate performance and usability, this was a choice I felt very comfortable in making. On advice of Johanna, another dear friend, Veronica (Mann-Wernsten), Sweden, bought a few years ago a refined Varian mare, Sasha Jullyen V (*Jullyen el Jamaal x Satine IA), and exported her to Europe. Since the day I saw her at Sheila's place, and later on at Johanna's farm in Belgium, she took a special place in my heart, as much as in my mind. She was gracious, both in temper as in appearance. Her neck was a trademark of the "V" breeding program and made her instantly recognizable within any group. She had the look of an athletic princess, a rare combination. When Veronica mentioned she would be ready to lease her to me for a year, I felt the choice was obvious. A year later, Shivaji JJ was born, by the famous European sire Ajman Moniscione, a name in itself. Both horses combined the best of qualities. I got lucky to be in the country when this little colt decided it was time to see the world. Pretty, balanced, complete and functional. I felt I made the right choice. Thank you Sheila, Veronica and Johanna for this wonderful opportunity!
Hi Sheila - Just wanted to share some exciting news with you... Apollo El Jamaal VF (*Jullyen El Jamaal x Apollonia HCF) was named 2011 Jordan National Champion Senior Stallion.

Thank you so much for the presentation of your lovely *Jullyen horses. We were so impressed with the horses themselves, and also with how you have trained them to come from an early age. Your warm and wonderful hospitality was a highlight of our trip.

Jazz (x Queen of Ssheba) is incredibly flexible at the poll and very light front ended - picks himself up and rolls.......very similar to watching Saddlebred babies.......
Sincerely, Susan Glendenning
We are thrilled! Our colt by Jullyen El Jamaal x Aladdins Tapestry is big, sweet and very smart. This breeding was meant to be and obviously proved to be a great match. This guy is even better than expected!

In May 2006 I was presented with Ali Savant HT, a colt one dreams about but never quite achieves. His beauty and overall quality were complimented by his presence, attitude, curiosity and willingness.
Thank you for your breeding program, commitment to the breed, semi-annual galas, and for your much needed advice.

I don't consider myself an authority but I do know what I like. What struck me was that Audacious was the oldest one in the ring and yet he entered like a MUCH younger stallion with loads of exuberance! He was a masculine stallion that couldn't be mistaken for a mare. His neck was up, tail over back and a gorgeous trot! He demonstrated such excitement to be there and he was in it to win! Jeff Schall did a beautiful job handling Audacious while he strutted his stuff!! Once I got past the electric energy he brought, it was incredible to see the details such as his big beautiful eyes, tiny tippy ears, well set neck, short back and smooth length of hip. His quality was obvious. Then I saw his son, Chippendale V. I had to have a breeding! I visited Varian Arabians later that year and saw more of his foals. I bought the breeding that day. I haven't used it until now, I needed the time to be right. I cannot wait until 2016!!
My first Audacious baby (colt) arrived on March 18th. He is bay and, so far, looks to stay bay with two hind socks and wonderful facial markings. I am absolutely thrilled with this colt -- pretty, pretty face; great ears; long neck; carries his tail at half-mast even in the stall so looks like he will move. Refinement and stretch. Helen is one of my best mares and produced the Region 16 Champion Sweeps filly of 2 years ago by Valentino. This baby is even better! I had to choose which mare to nominate for the Region 12 Spotlight auction breeding and I chose Koweta Allelujah. We'll see, but perhaps it should have been this one. He can show in the regular Signature class in any event. I'll let you know when the other one comes -- due around April 10.
