Wolfgang Eberhardt, Präsident des VZAP and honorary member of the Asil Club, passed away at age 71.

Always an Eye for Quality

A loyal member of our Asil Club has passed away! For more than 46 years Willi Poth and his wife Ursula bred Arabian horses, their daughter Susanne followed in her footsteps. Famous Asil Arabians such as Ibn Galal, Alidaar, Mohssen, AK Nawaal, Monisa Halima are inextricably linked with Willi Poth. Thanks to his visions, he found excellent Asil-Egyptian horses that influenced breeding in Europe. On April 12, four months after his 80th birthday, Willi Poth died.

A great breeder and mentor of the Arabian horse is no longer among us: Dr. Nasr Marei passed away in the  morning hours of 17th October 2017 at the age of 75.

It is truly hard to imagine one person who could be more things than was Charles Craver. His passing at the very end of 2016 leaves an imprint in the history of Al Khamsa and the Arabian breed that few will ever match.

On January 14, 2018, Hanna Louise (Hansi) Heck-Melnyk, our esteemed member of the Board, sadly passed away at her home, her beloved Serenity Arabian Farm, in Hawthorne, Florida. Her passing leaves a void that cannot be filled.
