US Nationals 2016

As breeders we find it extremely rewarding to have brought this fine group of horses to the 2016 Arabian US Nationals.  

Three of four of the horses Gemini brought were not only bred by Gemini Acres Equine, but are all by JJ Bellagio, our star stallion.  To make it even more special to us all 3 of these horses are out of Da Vinci mares.  A true cumulation of a dedicated breeding program, bringing together the many generations that we have worked so hard to achieve.

The fourth horse that joined the GAE team in Tulsa was the beautiful Half Arabian Mare Miss Ebony GA (Maddox Van Ryad x Ebony By Valentino).  Miss Ebony GA was bred by Gemini Acres Equine and is now owned by Marilyn Hoffman.  We thank her for entrusting her wonderful mare with us.
