The establishment of Touens Park Arabians ....
Touens Park Arabians was established in 1990 through the purchase of our first Partbred Arabian Mare, Nickel Jewel (Shayton x Nickel Fina) and this is how we came to form Touens Park Arabians (2 N's)
A versatile mare and fiery redhead who had had 13 owners in 13 years and I just loved her! She competed at halter, saddle classes and mountain racing. Nikky produced one and only foal for us, but continued to be my most favoured ridden horse. She had spirit, yet was soft and beautiful all at the same time.
Nikky passed away at 34 years of age under her favourite tree and is buried on our property. I will always be thankful to her for what she bought into our lives.
Hence our slogan:
"Established through the eye of a jewel"
Our first Purebred Arabian is a mare called Fermina (Joda Bahjat x Majar Razina) and I would say where the respect and admiration for the Joda bred horses probably began.
Fermina produced several foals for us over her years. She was shown very lightly in her younger days and even obtained a 10/10 score for movement at her last show. She competed in a number of disciplines including endurance.
Now reaching her 31st year, Fermina still graces our paddocks as she lives out her retirement like the grand mare she is.
Since the beginning our stud has expanded considerably. We currently house numerous Stallions and a wonderful band of mares with unique and sort after pedigrees.
We hope to share with you all, the next phase as our journey continues and hope you will visit our site frequently.
