JOSHUA Schildroth

Josh grew up on the family farm along the shores of Lake Huron in the town of Port Elgin, Ontario, riding and showing Quarter Horses and Arabian Horses for the past 30 years. Although his mother was more partial to Quarter Horses, it was the beauty and zest of the Arabian horse that captured his heart.  He has competed in every discipline at some point and has several Top Tens from the National Championship Horse Shows.   Josh serves as Vice President of the Arabian Horse Association of Eastern Canada along with the show commission for Region 18.  Over the past year, he has taken up reining lessons and is excited to debut in his first competition this year as an exhibitor.   Equally parallel for his love of this breed, is his love for his Golden Retriever, Merlin :)
