2023 Reader’s Choice Nominations

Being recognized by your peers is perhaps one of the greatest accomplishments in and of itself and we're incredibly honored to be recognized in a multitude of categories in the Arabian Horse Times 2023 Reader's Choice Awards. Of course -- we must salute our very own Alcides Rodrigues, nominated for Halter Trainer of the Year ~ a fine gentleman who formulates the elements of horsemanship and showmanship through and through and one who always puts the well being of our horses, and our farm, as the number one priority. And of course, Margaux Rodrigues, nominated for Caretaker of the Year - a person more dedicated we would be hard pressed to find and who orchestrates so much of the important "behind the scenes". 2023 gave us a lot to be thankful for! Highs, lows and every feeling in between - the Arabian horse and the tremendous TEAM that makes up Rae-Dawn Arabians - kept us shining our brightest every single step of the way.
