The Danish Society of Arabian Horse Breeding (DSAH) has awarded their 2011 WAHO Trophy to the dressage gelding, Tamon. Here is the citation from his owners:
We were so lucky to become owners of Tamon in 2006. He was an unshown gelding by Wagant (El Mokari/Warissa) out of Narissa (Ibn El Mokari/Sophonia), and was only lightly started under saddle at the time. Tamon soon proved to be a special ‘one of a kind’ horse, because in addition to his unrivalled temperament we discovered that he had a real capacity for dressage. In time we realized that we had acquired a truly golden treasure.
Tamon can be ridden and handled by all, he is goodness itself, although at times he can be a certain gentleman who will only talk when it suits him. He is a horse you can always rely on when ridden, and over the years he has proven to be one of the best all around purebred Arabian horses in Denmark.
