We all know that when we are in a bad mood our horses are also often in a bad mood and we know that the very best riders are able to put aside their own issues and stay calmly focused on helping and understanding their horses. However, what we often forget is just how much our horses understand about how we feel towards them. I am not just talking about when actually in the saddle, but also how we feel about them on the ground. When we ride and get frustrated with our horse, we see immediately that the horse becomes tense and unwilling. As we relax, so too our horses relax and are more willing to help us get our message across in a subtle and gentle manner. Stil, if your horse knows that when you dismount you release all ties to him, he will become distant and the work unexpressive. I noticed this and the power of this concept recently with my two horses. One horse is my star and I talk about him constantly. My other horse is older and a little bit more of a worry-wart and sometimes I forget how special he is. So, one day I went into the stable after training and looked into his eyes. He was sad with me and not because I was unfair or frustrated with him in training as I work very hard to always keep the calm relaxed me on the go. He was sad because he knew that he was number two and that perhaps I did not love him like I love the other. I felt very bad, but he was right. The next day I went into his stable and told him that I was going to make an effort to show him that he was as special as the other horse. From that day forward, his work was more focused--he tried harder and I found that I enjoyed riding him so much more.ARAB HORSE COUTURE - SUMMER 20178In the past, in addition to his role as master perfumer for the House of Guerlain, Jean Paul Guerlain also accumulated World Championships in Dressage and Carriage Driving. Guerlain is a French perfume house, amongst the oldest in the world. The House of Guerlain was founded in 1828, when PierreFrancois Pascal Guerlain opened his perfume store in Paris. Jean Paul Guerlain is fourth generation Geurlain and the last family master perfumer. Jean Paul continues to travel the globe to develop new fragrances.Nuno Oliveira (one of the great dressage masters) used to say, “To be a good rider, you have to love your horse. Horses pick up on our state of mind and attitude. I now use my common sense; it seems obvious to me that if dogs can smell fear, then horses feel what you transmit to them, and if you will fail, your horse will become tense, then surely you will fail. Have you ever thought about approaching him before a training session and telling him what is expected? Or visiting him post bath to discuss what could have gone better? Of course, the non-horsey’s will think you are mad, but chances are they do not even notice when people discuss their lives with their canine or feline friends. If you do not believe me, then try it, but believe in it or of course you are fooling yourself and your horse. A horse with a rider that loves him will show it. A horse with a negative and unfriendly rider will produce the same emotion in the Dressage Test (or any other tests). The best judge to appreciate the quality of the rider’s aids is the horse. Look at his attitude, his ears and eyes. If the rider who just won a dressage test or other dismounts and his horse has a miserable appearnce, we can say that the rider is a savage; the work was some kind of sport and not equestrian art.” In my opinion, it is equestrian art, not science. So even if we cannot prove something works, it is simply magical when it does. Good luck and please me know about your experiences using the above technique.

He was brought up surrounded by loving people and animals, of course some of them being beautiful horses. This is where the seed of love and respect for this animal was planted. His dream was to someday leave the village, explore new lands and to use his God given talent to capture the beauty around him in order to share it with the world. At the age of 13 he went to a four year Wood Carving boarding school where his talent was cultivated. Evangelos, during his journey ofARAB HORSE COUTURE - SUMMER 2017discovery, at the age of 21, had a great opportunity to work as a personal assistant for a successful multibillionaire Greek Shipping Tycoon and Thoroughbred horse breeder and racer, Mr. Stavros Niarchos. Mr. Niarchos was one of the greatest inspirations to the creation of the replica of “American Pharoah”. Mr. Stavros Niarchos’ love for horses and horse racing inspired Evangelos to admire even more the many qualities that a horse possesses, especially when he wins a race; Power, Strength, Elegance, Pride, Intelligence, and Perseverance, like the Kentucky Derby and more so, goes on to become a Triple Crown Champion.1819SUMMER 2017 - ARAB HORSE COUTURESecatibe runtum earum sincilla velenimus auta nobit raecus di omnietSecatibe runtum earum sincilla velenimus auta nobit raecus di omnietOnce “American Pharoah” won the Kentucky Derby in 2015, Evangelos knew in his heart that he may be the one.

The lastsun rays had immersed the sand into warm shades of golden light and created an atmosphere beyond space and time. When then a group of Bedouins assembled in one of the black woven tents to sip some shai - the Arabian tea - from small ornamented cups, tales of horses were narrated. Stories of exceptional Arabians went the round, horses who had gained unfading admiration through their achievements, pride and their very own aura. These Arabians where true aristocrats of the desert, treasured by their owners and desired by those who had met them or heard about their fame. Much may have changed in the past, but certain elementary things will ever be the same. There are horses that touch people’s souls, who move their hearts - horses like Ansata Iemhotep...Bred by Judith and Don Forbis of Ansata Arabian Stud in Mena, Arkansas, USA Ansata Iemhotep was born on March 4, 1993. Thinking back to this memorable day, Judith Forbis remembers: “There was an immediate charisma about Ansata Iemhotep. He looked you straight in the eye with that ‘look at me look’ from the minute he stood up. For a newborn foal he was elegant, with big dark expressive eyes, alert well-shaped ears, a very long neck, long legged, and with excellent balance. He had an immediate attitude that was unique; in essence, he simply ‘had it’. There was never a question that this was going to be a special horse with his very own type. I named him Iemhotep after the great architect of ancient Egypt who built the Step Pyramid in Sakkara, and came to be worshipped as a god and a great healer. Like his namesake, Iemhotep has begun to found his own dynasty.”Above: The immortal Ansata Iemhotep photo, Judith Wich-Wenning Right: A son of legandary Ansata Iemhotep: Ansata Riyadh (x Bint Faras Azali)ARAB HORSE COUTURE - SUMMER 201726“Hotep”, as he was soon affectionately called, perfectly reflected his pedigree which wasof intense Nazeer breeding and all his get werecarefully planned by his well-experienced breeders. “His sire, Prince Fa Moniet (Thevery best individuals in the Ansata program.
