The Next Generation – Om El Sinon

by Samantha Mattocks

Wed, May 10, 2017

Om El Arab is renowned around the world for its ethereal white mares, regal and elegant, who have captivated generation after generation of Arabian horse breeders around the world. However, the farm, located in the extremely picturesque Santa Ynez Valley in California, is just as famed for its stallions. Om El Arab is unique as greatness follows from both their sire and dam lines – and this year, the next generation is now making his mark... Om El Sinon.

From the Therapist: Fail to plan, plan to fail…

From the therapist: Ten minutes a day, to move the right way!

by Nikki Routledge

Sat, Mar 25, 2017

For a few years, the challenges I have set myself have been a little excessive, such as completing a marathon and attempting a 70.3 Ironman, so last year I resolved to just ‘smile and wave’ more and as a result I am a happy but slightly fatter version of me again. So my 2017 mission is to be more physically focused again, incorporating some charity fund raising to get me fitter as I ‘smile and wave’ each day.

Memories of Poland

Memories of Poland

by Samantha Mattocks

Sun, Aug 14, 2016

Poland is a place like no other. The grounds of Janów Podlaski, Michalów and Białka are very special indeed. To be there, to drive through those iconic gates at Janów, is a moment guaranteed to induce goosebumps. ‘Special’ does not even begin to cover how amazing the State Studs are, and arriving at them is emotional every time.

The Arabian Magazine is changing

The Arabian Magazine is changing

Thu, Sep 08, 2016

The world of the Arabian horse has changed significantly since 2005, when the first edition of The Arabian Magazine was published. That was a world where the internet was not as prevalent as it is now, and before the advent of Facebook, Twitter and other social media. In short – an era before the instant world became an expected part of everyday life.
