FVF Bucarrdi

(KM Bugatti x Major Primadonna)
2010 Chestnut Stallion

Tom and Leola Hansen bought FVF Bucarrdi +/(KM Bugatti x Major Primmadonna) on March 26, 2014, won a tough Region VII Hunter Pleasure Junior Horse Championship with him less than a month later, and never looked back.

“I don’t see myself as a ‘breeder’ in the historical sense,” says Tom.“I’m a horse person.I spent 34 years as a successful veterinarian and I know what a correct, well conformed horse should look like. We were retiring my National Champion hunter, and had been searching – rather extensively – for a replacement. When I saw FVF Bucarrdi standing quietly in the cross ties, I knew he was special. When I saw him move – forget it! – Incredible. “

“Being a horse person, I just liked the way he looked. Quality is always recognizable from the start.”

In the three years the Hansen’s have owned FVF Bucarrdi, he’s won championships at every show he’s been to including 2015 Scottsdale Champion Junior horse AND 2015 Scottsdale Champion AATR Hunter, a testament to both his soundness and his temperament.

For those who are interested in pedigrees, FVF Bucarrdi combines Arabian royalty throughout the ages. Fame VF, Simeon Sanegor, El Shaklan, The Real McCoy, and Ferseyn through his father KM Bugatti, who is himself both a hunter and halter champion. Muscat, Erros, Bask, An Malik, and Naborr through his mother.

Most importantly, his tail female line is a Kuhaylah Ajuz. As Judith Forbis says, Kuhaylah Ajuz is one of the great Al Khamsa female lines recognized as the “first of Al Kuhayl and the dearest and most valuable of the Arabs of Nejd.”[1]Likewise, his tail male line traces to the elite Davenport mare *Reshan, whose sire was a Kuhaylan ‘Ajuz and out of a Kuhaylah Haifiyah of Ibn Huraymis of the Fid’an.[2]

The significance of this cannot be understated.Kuhaylan type horses are known for:

Silhouettes which tend to flow from head to tail. The head has very detailed facial features (prominent veins, tear bones, wrinkled skin, etc.) with extremely broad forehead and great width between the eyes and jaws, very large eyes. Ears seem relatively small. Their disposition is gentle and kind. Kahayan’s combine beauty and muscular strength, and make excellent all-around saddle horses.[3]

FVF Bucarrdi’s elite concentration of Kuhaylan blood plays an important role in his potential as a breeding stallion and contributor to the breed.

“Not very many people breed specifically for hunter horses, which I think is a mistake,” says Tom.“We decided to become founding members of the Arabian Hunter Pleasure Association (AHPA) because my wife and I really believe in the hunter division. I’ve ridden all the disciplines, but enjoy hunter the most because you are really in tune with the horse. Plus, it’s very amateur friendly and accessible to those with busy lives and full-time careers.”

“There is a lot of talk about how to bring new people into the industry. We have the joy and privilege to compete against a lot of talented and successful hunters, and I guarantee you if everyone had a chance to experience the thrill, companionship, and excitement we have with FVF Bucarrdi, they would never want to leave. Our goal is to invite people to look at the Hunter division and breeding to FVF Bucarrdi as an opportunity for competition, camaraderie, and fun.”
