The Durdin’s purchased DA Joshah as a 3 year old from Dolorosa Arabians. Two months after his purchase, with only three months of training under saddle, he earned a U.S National Top Ten in the Arabian Hunter Pleasure Snaffle Bit Futurity. After this stunning show ring debut, Joshah came home to Texas.


The following January Joshah sustained a serious injury to his front right leg and was stall-bound for over six weeks. He made a full recovery and with Granger in the saddle, went on to win numerous blue ribbons in Hunter Pleasure, AAOTR, Open and Junior Horse classes. Joshah had a couple of nicknames that fit him well. “Baby Shah” paid homage to his sunny, child-like disposition. He was also known as “Band-Aid Joey” because he seemed to always nick or scrape himself just before an important show.


Joshah’s great personality is much missed at the barn and in the show ring. He was a wonderful friend and partner we will remember forever.
