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, Â 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 linebreedÂ Â Â Â 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)Â 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. TakÂ (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 showingÂ inÂ the halterÂ SHOW RING,Bel Amora(Pyatigorsk X Bel Adora by Bey Apache) was a multiple Regional Champion in the U.S. and U.S. NationalÂ Top 10Â before being Â 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.
