Before   we   acquired   Halynov,   he   had   already   won   4   Year   Old   Stallion   at   Whittier and   Champion   4   Year   Old   Stallion   at   Del   Mar   in   1990.   We   were   more   interested   at that   time   in   family   trail   rides   and   breeding   Halynov.   In   1994   Jeff   Wonnell   convinced us   to   take   Hal   off   the   trails   and   out   of   the   breeding   barn   to   compete   in   shows.   He was   so   impressed   with   Halynov's   conformation   and   movement   that   he   offered   to show   Hal   himself   with   no   trainer   fee   at   Scottsdale   to   compete   in   the   hunter   division. He   had   only   had   4   months   of   formal   training   with   Jeff   at   that   point   in   time.   Prior   to that   time,   Halynov   had   just   been   ridden   by   Bette   and   Mark   on   trail   with   the   kids   and their   horses.   Hal's   favorite   thing   was   to   be   let   out   in   an   all-out   run   in   the   field   at   the end   of   the   trail.   It   was   like   riding   a   powerful   locomotive   --   really   thrilling!   He   was always   a   gentleman   with   the   kids'   horses   --   even   when   their   mounts   were   in   heat and inevitably wound up right in front of him. Hal   took   Top   Five   Hunter   Pleasure,   in   his   "practice"   show,   with   Jeff   Wonnell's talented   protégé,   Kris   Brutoco.   Jeff   had   used   jumps   for   morning   warm-ups   (Hal free-jumped   in   the   indoor   arena   over   cavelletis   while   Jeff   sipped   his   morning   java). Jeff   created   a   monster   as   Hal   could   not   get   enough   of   jumps   --   the   higher   the better. Halynov   was   spotted   by   International   Olympic   Champion   Will   Venter   while   this Master   Farrier   from   England   was   working   on   him.   Will   had   just   arrived   in   America and   was   looking   for   an   Olympic   prospect.   He   asked   us   if   we   would   consider   letting him   train   Halynov   for   the   Atlanta   Jumping   Olympics   scheduled   for   1996.   After   only two   months   training,   Will   took   Halynov   to   the   Santa   Barbara   Horse   Show   in   1995   to get   him   used   to   crowds   and   different   jumps   --   a   "practice   show."   Just   imagine   our excitement   when   Halynov   won   Region   II   Jumper   Championship,   defeating   the many   times   U.S.   Reserve   Champion   Jezebel!   Mark   had   tears   in   his   eyes   for   the first time since our first-born was born! Before   Will   could   realize   his   dream   of   showing   the   first   Purebred Arabian   jumper   in the   Olympics   (representing   Zimbabwe),   Hal   suffered   a   stone   bruise.   It   erupted   into an   abscess   at   Stacie's   Santa   Barbara   Horse   Show   and   subsequent   became   a   very serious   quarter-crack,   ending   his   horse   show   career   and   Stacie's   hopes   of   winning with   him   at   Nationals.   He   had   to   then   look   to   his   offspring   to   fulfill   the   vision. Halynov consoled himself with trail riding and breeding. What a guy!
