The 8th Annual Arabian Horse Association Sporthorse National Show was held September 22-25 in Nampa, Idaho. KB Omega Fahim+++// and firstborn daughter KB Jull Fahim+// swept the open FEI division. This is the first time a father and daughter have dominated the entire open FEI division of U.S. Arabian Dressage. 14 year old KB Omega Fahim+++// won Grand Prix and Intermediate 11 while 11 year old firstborn daughter KB Jull Fahim+// captured Intermediate 1 and Prix St George.
Many people were on edge for the final Grand Prix test to be performed on the last day of the championships. Omega, under his exceptional trainer and rider, Chelsey Sibley, completed this monumental task with grace and ease. During the evening’s special ceremony, both horses were awarded and presented as champions of each test. Jull also achieved the High Point Open FEI Horse of the Show. The Sporthorse Nationals featured 90 classes in four divisions: Sport Horse, Hunter/Jumper, Dressage and Driving. Forty-one states and two Canadian Provinces came to compete in this national event. Sport Horse Nationals is the only single-breed Sport Horse event in the nation offered just for Arabian, Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian horses registered with AHA or the Canadian Arabian Horse Registry.
