KF Artistic Lady


“Lady” won numerous championships in Half-Arabian English Pleasure, Native Costume, and Show Hack. Even after her retirement from the show ring, she was a wonderful horse to ride and a favorite to take to Addicks Reservoir for a romp out in the open. Lady leaves behind one fabulous son, which we continue to enjoy at Magic Moments: Party Tyme MM.


Lady was definitely cut from a different cloth than most horses. It took a special relationship between Granger and Lady to have the success in the show ring that the two of them achieved. Lady loved to be flashy and fast in the show ring, at home, or even out on the trail. There was nothing better for an adrenalin rush than riding Lady. You never knew what to expect from her... But whatever she did, it was always fun!!

DA Melt Down
Granger purchased melt down from Dolorosa Arabian as a 3 year old. He was to be her next Country English horse. She showed him a couple of times in that class and "Melty" let her know that this was not his career of choice. So at the next horse show, Granger decided to just tack him as a Hunter Pleasure horse, braid him up, enter the class, and see what happened.
After that they showed in the Hunter Pleasure division for a couple of years and had a great time. Melty then decided that he was bored with Hunter Pleasure and that he would really like Dressage. He spent about six years of his show career as a Dressage horse, and really seemed to enjoy this type of work. He was schooling second level when he struck a career ending health issue.
Granger lost Melt Down when he suffered from an extreme case of founder. Melty was the big, bay gelding that Granger could go to when she was having a bad day, sit in his stall, and he somehow made everything better. He was a great listener and the perfect kisser! He would move her hair around on her head with his muzzle while seeming to say "life always gets better".
For many, it is a once in a lifetime experience to have such a close, personal relationship with a horse, just between the two of you. We know Melty is up with some of his other barn mates prancing around a Dressage arena with perfect footing; his favorite thing!

Sire:       Bey Shah

Dam:     HL Serenity

Foaled:  8/12/1996

Gender:  Gelding

Breed:    Arabian

Color:     Chestnut

Height:   15'1" 


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.
