2011 marks the 30th. anniversary of our breeding program and our family’s involvement in the world of Arabian Horses.

Our farm is located at Turner Valley,  Alberta, Canada, 35 miles southwest of Calgary in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

The name BELARIAN is an acronym, made up of letters from our family-Barry and Diane and our children Melanie and Brent.

Our first horses were purchased in 1981 from Willomar, George and Lynn Allen’s world renowned breeding program. The breeding principles developed within their program are still used today in formulating our breeding decisions.

Utilizing the Russian Stallion PRIBOJ (Piolun X Rissalma) around whom the early Russian Breeders established their program and his sons and daughters and on through the generations, we continue to linebreed    these horses. Adding an out cross from time to time we continue to strive to produce horses with the mind and structure to be successful in a wide variety of disciplines.

Our horses have been succcessful in ENDURANCE, with several having completed the gruelling Tevis Cup 100 miles multiple times with Arcade (*Arpan X *Popravka by Nadejni) twice finishing in the Top 20.

For several years we were involved in RACING. Our senior stallion Palladium (*Arpan X *Panache) was Top Alberta Race colt as a 3 year old. The Pyatigorsk sons Marron, The Master Plan and Matrixx, full brothers from our Foundation Mare My Madame (*El Kasaka X Harpona by *Gay Polka) all raced successfully. Tak (Pyatigorsk X Resza by *Rezus) bred by us was a Stakes winner in California and was exported to the U.A.E. where he continued his career,racing against some of the best Arabian Race Horses in the world.

In limited showing in the halter SHOW RING,Bel Amora(Pyatigorsk X Bel Adora by Bey Apache) was a multiple Regional Champion in the U.S. and U.S. National Top 10 before being  exported to Italy.Both of our Breeding Stallions,Palladium and Navaron were Region 17 Top 5 Stallions.Navaron was Canadian Breeders Champion Stallion and Bandelier(Palladium X Bitter Sweete by Pyatigorsk)was Canadian Breeders Champion Gelding.

In Performance,Arktik (Sundance BF X *Mistikaa by Mag) is a multiple U.S. and Canadian National Champion Western Pleasure.The Master Plan(Pyatigorsk X My Madame by *El Kasaka),after a limited racing career went on to become Canadian National Top 10 Western and Ladies Side Saddle,Multiple Regional Championships and Reserves and was Canadian Breeders Champion.Several others have had successful Show careers shown by our family and our clients.

As well.many of our horses have gone on to success with their new owners as Pleasure and Ranch working horses and Foundation Breeding Horses for other programs.

Our current SALES LIST includes Geldings and Mares started under saddle,young prospects,Mares in foal and others.We welcome your calls and visits.

  4. Hi Barry and Diane, I’m glad to see you have your site up and running – looks great! I hope to make it down next summer to see the horses – maybe bring a mare to visit that beautiful boy Arkangel!

  5. HI BARRY. MY DEAR KENO HAS JUST DIED FROM COMPLICATIONS DUE TO CUSHINGS. MY HEART IS BROKEN BUT ARABS ARE MY FIRST LOVE. I’M 68 WITH MEDIUM CONFIDENCE, BUT I DON’T BOUNCE AS WELL AS I USED TO SO I DON’T NEED A FIRECRACKER. I’M STILL WATCHING YOUR WEBSITE BUT I DON’T KNOW HEIGHTS OF HORSES.

  6. I like your website good looking Arabians

  7. It is pleasant to see on pages of your which site of horses knew personally. Thanks.

    • The horses of Tersk are the foundation and the future of our program.Thank you for visiting our site-it is a pleasure to hear from someone who knew all of the special horses there and we look forward to keeping in touch.

  8. Hi Barry and Diane,

    Our daughter, Rachel, started her riding lessons at Belarian under Melanie and Mr.Hermann way back in 1989 at the age of 10. She went on to ride at Sea Fever and then after purchasing her her own horse at the age of 14, she rode at Paramount under Jim Ifko. She has continued to ride and train and currently owns a gorgeous Frisian/Holsteiner filly out of her Holsteiner mare. I just thought I’d drop a line and thank you for those early riding lessons that spurred her on to a lifelong passion and love.

    • We are very pleased to hear from you and learn that Rachel’s experience with us was a positive influence and contributed to her lifelong love and participation in the world of horses.
      Best Regards and thank you for thinking of us.
      Barry and Diane
