We are sad to announce the premature passing of Khemosha Bey + //. He passed away after intensive colic surgery from post-op complications. We only had him for a short time but he had a major impact on our lives as well as on Katherine, who showed him to several Regional titles, including 2 Championships and several top fives. Throughout his illustrious career he showed in Western Pl Open, JTR, & ATR, Hunter Pl Open, JTR & ATR, Sidesaddle Western, Halter, Dressage, and Western Horsemanship/Equitation. In total he garnered 10 Regional Top 5's , 3 Championships & 1 Reserve, and 1 National Top Ten in Western Pl. In Hunter Pl, he earned 1 Champion, 1 Reserve and 1 Top Five. In Dressage he acquired 4 Regional Top Fives, a Reserve National Championship and 1 National Top Ten! Overall, he had more than 80 class "A" Wins!!! He was such a fantastic horse through it all. He always gave 100% in every class, everytime.
Several weeks prior to his death, we learned that Khemosha Bey + // had attained the "Legion of Excellence" award. He is also in the running for several of 2010 USEF Horse of The Year Awards.
He was Proudly owned by Katherine Tate. He is buried on Firelight Arabians farm overlooking the barns and pastures.
We all miss so much, he was truly one of a kind...
