The 2017 National Arabian Stud Horse Show, held at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre at Horsley Park between 15 and 19 November, had perfect weather for showing horses. It was overcast and cool, the rain mainly stayed away, and we had four days to showcase top Arabian and derivative horses to our international judge Ann Green along with Australian judges Vicki Reid and Yvonne Downs along with Lindy and Maureen Walker.
Thursday saw the junior Arabian derivative classes with quality horses in all classes. Overall Supreme Led was the very successful Arabian Warmblood gelding Lawless (Lord Larmarque x Halimas Amber Gem), for Stokes Sporthorses. The Senior Led Derivative was Kaspian CSH (Fever FF x Fantasy FF) owned by Kim Gibson.

The Jess Greenhalgh Memorial Trophy for Purebreds was won by Georgio KA (Crave FF x Bint Georgie Girl), owned by Krishlah Arabians.
