In 1993 I was commissioned by the Canadian Sport Horse Association to paint the great Trakehner stallion, Abdullah’s portrait. This was presented to his owner’s honouring his retirement at the Royal Winter Fair that year. Abdullah was bred in Canada and went to the United States as a 3 year old in 1973. In his career as a world class show jumper, he won multiple championships including team gold and individual silver at the 1984 Olympics.
