When Mariah Wilson decided to breed Half-Arabian mare Kolor Me Krazy, this wonderful mare had been part of the Platinum Performance Horses family for several years. Her fantastic disposition made her a treasured member of the lesson program, teaching many absolute first time beginners and providing Walk/Trot riders with a great introduction to horse showing.
Choosing a stallion that would double-down on great disposition was paramount and Mariah already had a stallion in mind. She'd had the opportunity to handle several Rodan LTD+// babies for his owners (Vicki and Sam Dazzo of Dazzo Arabians in Albuquerque) and found those youngsters to be personable, bold and trainable—everything a trainer wants in a future performance horse.
Karban Kopy PPH+/ has more than fulfilled Mariah’s hopes and expectations. Karban is truly versatile competing in Sport Horse Under Saddle, Western Pleasure and Side Saddle and this year at Scottsdale was Champion in both the Dressage and Hunter Type Arabian Gelding Sport Horse In Hand. At only six years old he’s not only achieved his Legion of Supreme Honor and TWO US National Top Ten awards in Tulsa, he’s already become part of the Platinum Performance Horse lesson team. For the past ten years PPH has quietly been building a stellar reputation known for the high quality of the horses in the PPH lesson program, almost all of whom are past Region Top Tens or better in performance and in many cases, National level horses.
