  • Cedars Mojave, our gorgeous young son by Imperial ImSirdar X RSA Sahra Nazeem, won two Top Tens at the 2011 Egyptian Event: World Class 3-year-old Stallions and the Extended Futurity for 3-year-old straight Egyptian stallions. He was ably handled by trainer David Conner. Thanks, David and Andrea, for all your help at the show!! Mojave won Top Ten at the 2010 Egyptian Event, shown by David Conner in the 2-year-old SE Futurity. He was 6th of 16 horses--a great accomplishment after only two training sessions with David!

PAST EVENTS:

  • Cedars Bellavia (Laheeb X Cedars KenyaCatchMe), beautiful 2007 grey straight Egyptian Arabian mare, will be going to Italy! Trainer Davide Mariani, on the recommendation of our friend Raymond Mazzei of Furioso Arabians, purchased Bellavia at the Egyptian Event. Bella produced a gorgeous filly by Mishaal in July 2012.  Congratulations, Davide!! We will miss our lovely girl, though. Perhaps we can visit her in Italy one day...

  • At Horsefest! 2010  on April 24,  Liz Salmon gave an excellent half-day sport horse in hand clinic.  Liz, who is a renowned equine consultant, also did written evaluations of the Horsefest sale horses. We had a sale horse barn to promote the horses of many breeds. Watch the Horsefest! 2010 page for details. Download the flyer here. Contact us if you would like Liz to return Fall 2011.
     
  • Because of the tough economic times we are experiencing, we reluctantly offer our wonderful Cedars KenyaCatchMe (Botswana X CDRS Farah Moniet) for on-farm lease or sale. Kenya is a superb mare for an amateur or professional to show; her sire was 2009 Egyptian Event Supreme Champion Stallion and 2010 leading sire in all categories. She produced a lovely Laheeb daughter, Cedars Bellavia, in April 2007, which was sold in 2011 to Italy.
     
  • We have limited edition prints by our friend, artist Deborah Rush, available here; others can be ordered.  We'll post some of them soon.
     
  • Deborah's beautiful Egyptian Imperial Al Kamar daughter, Just One Look, had a foal by Stormy Nile Legend (The Source cc X Masonnah by Shahir) in Fall 2010. See "Dixie" on our Sales Page.
     
  • Our dear mare and best friend, CDRS Farah Moniet (Imperial ImSirdar X AK Farette) died of colic early Sunday morning, May 17, 2009.   Farah produced many beautiful fillies and her first colt in 2008, Ninjah Al Laheeb.  Farah was my personal riding horse, my babysitter who looked out for me, my sweet friend.   I will miss her. Sadly, Ninjah died three months later of complications from antibiotic treatment.
     
  • Imperial ImSirdar (Ansata Imperial X Imperial Sonbesjul X *Serenity Sonbolah), our foundation stallion, is retired at Cedar Ridge Farm.   Sirdar was a triple dressage champion at the Egyptian Event in 2002 and we hope he'll be ridden again by our dressage instructors.  Any rebreedings due in 2010 will be honored by using Sirdar or his son Cedars Mojave.
     
  • RSA Sahra Nazeem produced a beautiful chestnut EBC Sirdar colt, Cedars Mojave, February 27, 2008.   He is very typey, leggy, perfectly conformed, and moves boldly with great style and charisma  Sahra's 2007 bay Sirdar son, the gorgeous, athletic Rashiiq Ibn Sirdar ,  has been sold.  We hope to rebreed Sahra to Sirdar in 2010, hoping for a filly as refined as her two colts!
     
  • The beautiful Cedars Amirat Al Alwan (True Colours X CDRS Farah Moniet) was exported to the country of Qatar.  Amira was purchased in September 2008 by Hassan Ali Hassan Al Matwi .  Although we will miss Amira's sweet greetings, we congratulate and wish her new owner the very best.  Sincere thanks to Liz Salmon for making this sale possible.
