1. What are some of the highlights and successful moments involving the Arabian horse for you in 2015?
2015 was another exciting year for horses bred by Prestige Farms LLC winning 8 National Championships, 6 Reserves and an additional 21 Top Tens in English Pleasure, Country Pleasure, Park, Driving, Costume, Side Saddle, Hunter Pleasure and Halter. Some of the highlights were JK HEIRISTOCRACY US National Champion English Pleasure, BLOCK BUSTER PF US National Champion Country English Jr Horse with TOMMY BAHAMA PF going Reserve and ETERNAL FIRE PF finishing in 3rd! THUNDERSTUCK LR won 3 National Championships in Side Saddle and Country Pleasure Driving.
Prestige Farms is not a big breeding operation so these wins are really exciting and very fullfilling.
2. If someone were to describe you, what would they say about you?
“Always striving to breed a better athlete.” One of the unique things about Prestige Farms LLC breeding program is they don’t stand a stallion of their own. Irwin breeds to the top horses in the country – both Arabian and Saddlebred so every cross is strategically planned to produce the best individual. He only breeds 6 – 8 mares on average a year so it’s a very select group of individuals.
