Located and in full training with Clare at Clarity Performance Horse Training Center in Petaluma, Ca.

Opal is exceptionally well bred.
If you are familiar with Performance Horse Arabian breeding, you will instantly see that she has quite a bit of Royalty in her bloodlines!
Makes Opal a Princess, yes?!?
To begin with, the fact that she was bred by Lacey Arabians, starts us right off with the Breeder Greats!
Lacey Arabians is a well known, longstanding and proven great among Arabian Breeders:
In addition, Opal's Grandsire on her sire's line is the famous and well known stallion "Barich De Washoe":
On her dam's side, her grandmother is a full sister to the great stallion "Karadjordje".

Opal has quite a bit of Performance horse training.
She is schooling 2nd and 3rd level dressage, and can comfortably jump courses of 2'6"-2'.9".
She has been ridden by a girl of 11 years over fences, and is very well behaved and happy to cooperate.
Here is a short clip of her young rider over fences:
Below, you will also see her schooling dressage with Clare's 13 year old student, (the first time her student had ever ridden Opal!), and with Clare after about 2 weeks of having Opal in full training.
Many more riding videos coming soon.

Opal is a delightful mare.
She is sweet, and beautiful, and a barn favorite.
She is a very good mover, is very supple laterally, and will excel up the Dressage levels.
Someone could definitely take her out 2nd, coming 3rd level in the 2016 show season, and do extremely well.
Jumping for cross training:  what could possibly be better for a  Performance Arabian Enthusiast?
Opal is 100% sound and healthy.
No history of health or soundness issues.

Opal has great feet, and has always been barefoot.
She is super with the farrier, clipping, bathing, trailering, etc.

“Passion” is a registered 9 year old solid Palomino Paint. Passion is 15.2hh and sound, with a very nice conformation and a sweet personality. Passion has been all over the place and has a calm attitude, but still eager to learn. For most of Passions career, she has been used as a trail horse and ridden in the arena. Passion has thrown 2 absolutely beautiful babies out of Bueno Blue Badger, she was a wonderful mother to both her filly and colt. The most awesome part is Passion kept her figure, her great mind and her athleticism. Passion works off your leg with ease, is quiet and easy going. Passion loads wonderfully, stands for the farrier, clips, ties, bathes and gets along great with other horses. Passion is truly a one of a kind horse...
