The Council of The Arab Horse Society in Great Britain unanimously chose PHA Silvern Risalm as the first British winner of the WAHO Trophy. This 11 year old grey stallion, of all British bloodlines dating back to the early imports to this country, was chosen primarily for his excellence in ridden competitions.
A very good looking horse with a wonderful temperament, PHA Silvern Risalm is also proving to be an excellent ambassador for the Arabian horse in the UK, having won the major title of Ridden Arabian Horse of the Year at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show, in front of an audience of many hundreds of spectators for whom this may have been their first exposure to the Arabian breed. Winner of 14 International Championships, 16 National Championships and 38 Regional Championships under saddle, PHA Silvern Risalm is now competing successfully in affiliated dressage, proving that the Arabian horse can compete and win against other breeds in this demanding equestrian discipline. Already training at medium level, it is hoped that he will reach advanced level dressage training in 2006.
