OK......this was "Section B" of the Liberty Class. There are four sections then the WINNERS of each go up against one another for the finals! Boy oh boy,......will that one be fabulous! I just love being here among such gorgeous animals!

I cannot express in words how beautiful this is to witness! Suffice it to say, I get goose bumps and it brings tears to my eyes.
The Liberty Class is one where ONE horse is brought into the arena and turned loose for a time period of two minutes to do whatever it pleases. In my opinion, this is the Arabian Horse at its most glorious!

These three beauties are yearling fillies being shown in Halter Class. The paint was most unusual.....had one blue eye and one brown eye! I cannot begin to describe how much I enjoy being around such beautiful horses! Just when I think I've surely seen THE most beautiful one here, along comes another JUST as gorgeous!

This is ONE of many stables housing some of the (thousands, literally) of Arabian Horses. Each of the stables seems to enjoy creating an outdoor entertainment area for sitting, visiting and, no doubt, business dealings w/their horses.
At any one time, there are competitive classes going on in each of about 5 arenas. This is Wendell Arena (top pic) and the class is 2 yr. old Halter.......EVERY horse is absolutely gorgeous!! Second pic is a competitor warming up for Western Pleasure Class and other two pics are English Pleasure Class. Breath taking, aren't they?!?!
What a geographical change! From the snowy peaks of Dallas Divide (San Juan Mountains) to the SW desert of the Navajo Indian Reservation. All beautiful! Really enjoyed the trip to Scottsdale!
