Vintage Black Arabians
owner Ann M. Rienks
Vintage Black Arabians has been many years in the making.
God has shaped
and provided the path that has led to this point.
I am extremely proud of the horses as well those that have sold.
For me personally, my passion for horses started as a child.
I think a person is born with that passion My first
horse was gifted to me.
I was 17 then. She was a beautiful liver chestnut
Heather also had many health issues, navicular, bog spavin,
and a fractured coffin bone. While some may say I was
given someone else's
troubles, I will tell you, I have always considered that mare a
true gift. As through
Heather's health issues and needs, I became educated on her
issues. That mare
with all her lameness issues, helped to shape me into the sound
horse woman I am today.
When I became acquainted with Arabian horses, I fell deeply in
love with the breed.
I bred my first horse in 1985, when I purchased a breeding to a
Purebred Arabian for Heather.
Due to the discovery she had
endometriosis, I had to substitute a leased mare.
She produced a beautiful chestnut filly, whom I named Mon Ami
I broke Ana to saddle, trail rode, showed halter, western
pleasure and rode hunter jumper.
She was an excellent teacher
and confidence builder for my children as they learned to ride.
We were blessed to have Ana all her life, sadly in the summer of
she moved onto greener pastures. It was through
Ana and the boarding facility she was at
that we met a very handsome 2
year old coppery chestnut
Arabian stallion by the name of AE Tsultans Fire (stable name of
Both Ana and I fell in love with Max. I secured my
first loan with my Credit Union
and purchased him. Yes, I still own Max, June 14 of 2016

He was shown successfully in Halter and Western Pleasure by then
Mike Goggins. With Mike he earned Reserves and
Championships at State and Class A shows. Max's
Fire Devil++(*Bask x Toi) was a very successful stallion who was
multiple US and Can.

I could not ask for a better stallion or more loyal friend. He
has always watched out
for me, even when covering mares.
With the Arabian horse, there is a very special bond that they
build with their owners.
They own you as much as you own them. They are smart and
sensative. I recall
over the course of years, being told by some to never purchase
Straight Egyptian Arabians.
I was told they were too high strung. That information
remained in my head for years.
I had the distinct pleasure to meet Shalimaar Shirah, an El
who was strikingly beautiful, full of personality and
charisma. From the moment
I walked into his barn, this stallion was talking to me.
Wanted my full attention.
At liberty he put on such a show of beauty and grace. In
hand he was the perfect
gentleman. In front of the camera, he would look at me as
if to ask,
"did you get that one?" I couldn't believe that
anyone would consider
Straight Egyptian Arabians high strung. Shalimaar and his progeny had
me so much, that
I opened my heart to the Straight Egyptian Arabian.
To me the Straight Egyptian Arabian is the most intense
all the fine qualities I appreciate in the purebred Arabian
For those of you not familiar with what denotes a
"Straight Egyptian" Arabian,
it's in the pedigree. "All
lines in the pedigree must end in Egypt".

I have a great deal of love and appreciation for the Arabian
