The Arabian Horse Association is proud to present our new podcast, The Arabian Horse Connection. Our bi-weekly episodes will showcase the diversity of the Arabian horse community; from industry titans, backyard heroes, and amateur contenders to the latest trends, stories, and news AHA will cover it all.
This I week I sit down and chat with the owners of Conway Arabians (https://www.conwayarabians.com/), Lori and Peter Conway. Lori and Peter have been breeding and training Arabian and Half Arabian horses since 1999 and have amassed multiple top ten and national championships from horses they have owned and bred. Breeding horses that exhibit quality over quantity sits at the cornerstone of Peter and Lori’s program. Not only are they exemplary industry professionals, they also embody a passion for Arabian horses that are bred to move you. Glean great industry knowledge as we discuss desirable breeding stock characteristics, navigating foal purchases with the use of social media, and the future of Arabian breeding.
This week we are going the distance with Alanna and Gunnar Frank. Alanna and her husband Gunnar own and operate Iron Vikings Equine Endurance in Vinita, Oklahoma where they not only host endurance rides on their ranch, but also sell a myriad of products that assist in the comfort and health of distance riders and their horses. Alanna and Gunnar have been riding and competing with their Distance horses since 2006 and throughout that time have completed multiple 50 and 100 mile rides all over the country. On this episode, we discuss what makes distance riding so unique and learn more about getting started in the sport.
