April - June 2009  Balen, Belgium
It was wonderful to have the opportunity to spend 3 months training the beautiful Arabians and working with the staff of Jadem Arabians in Balen, Belgium. Some of the highlight's during my time spent at Jadem were getting to spend my morning's with the great Padrons Psyche. What an incredible stallion he is and I could not think of a better place for him to spend the rest of life. Walking through the mare barns in the early morning and seeing all of the glorious mares owned by Christine Jamaar with their QR Marc foals was also something to look forward to daily. Borsalino K was also a favorite of mine to work with as well as the beautiful Werter, Gilly, Jamil, Abha Qatar,Salman,Magnificent Lady, Flirtation, Endless Luv, Miss Sunshine, Day Dream, Magnum's Madonna & Neville. I enjoyed sharing my knowledge and simply loved working with these wonderful horses as well as the staff Dorien, Kaat, Cesary & Tony. I wish everyone at Jadem much success in future in shows and look forward to visiting again!
