Champion Stallion - Halter
Owned by Ralph & JoAnn Kewish
A champion halter and most classic head stallion, this beautiful 15.2 hand 9" bone Belesemo bred horse captured the following National titles:
National - AERC Jim Jones Stallion Mileage Champion
1st - AERC Mountain Region Mileage Champion
2,610 endurance miles to date
"My decision to purchase Fantizon as a yearling from Belesemo Arabians was far from rational as I was seeking an older horse and definitely not a stallion. But Fantizon has more than validated my emotional decision.
Part of the reason Fantizon does so well is he takes care of himself on the rides. He eats, drinks, rests when necessary and doesn't burn excess energy. He has the energy to go down the trail and he is such a gentleman as a stallion - a marvelous disposition.
"His offspring have his disposition, excellent conformation and tremendous bone. Zoni is a pleasure!" JoAnn Kewish

2015 AERC SE REGION JUNIOR LD MILEAGE – 1ST
This wonderful gelding has a fantastic story beginning with his breeders James & Gini Agnew of South Carolina. They acquired his sire, Belesemo Chance (Belesemo Trad x Sunrise Feylene) as a baby from Belesemo Arabians, when they were willing to take a chance on him as a stallion prospect after he was stepped on at the age of 3 days and survived a broken leg plated with steel and screws. James & Gini bred Chance to their mares which produced Chance of Freedom and started Chance on his great endurance career. He was ridden to his National Champion Junior LD win by 10 yr. old Lily Turaski. What a wonderful accomplishment.
