Since 1979, I have had the privilege to share my life with Arabian horses. I have also been blessed with countless opportunities to meet and become good friends with many of the most highly acclaimed Arabian horse breeders in the world. What I have learned from these leaders, and have witnessed first-hand when touring their breeding farms, is quite simple; In order to achieve success and longevity as a respected breeder, one must not be a party to trends or fads but focus on and follow the “ideal” you wish to achieve; Stay true to your beliefs, and, above all, do your homework. One piece of advice that continues to resonate as I do my research in selecting the right stallions for our mares is this, “Breed for the best horse possible, and everything else will follow.” This wisdom comes from my dear friend, mentor and highly respected Arabian horse breeder, Lucy Whittier.
I am extremely humbled by my achievements as a breeder and overjoyed by the successes and accomplishments my mares have realized in their offspring. I feel truly blessed to be able to share this passion with my husband, Harry, our family, my sister, our friends and the beautiful mares that have allowed me to enter their lives. Whether cleaning their stalls and paddocks, filling their water buckets, tossing a flake of hay into their mangers or just lovin’ on them… I know there is no better life for me than being down at the barn and with my girls… and the occasional boy.
I’ve know Lisa since she was 22 years old, and as the other half of Arabian Expressions. First and foremost, she is the consummate horseman: a young woman determined to be the best that she can be. She is passionately dedicated, talented, smart, honest, loyal, and making a great transition to becoming an outstanding breeder. I love having her for my friend. – Lucy Whittier, Arabian horse breeder, 37 years
