title>Tuxedo Thyme ABA - Black Arabian Stallion - Absolutely Arabians - Meet Tuxedo Thyme

Tux was born on April 14th, 2004. He surprised us by coming into this world with a grey color that we weren't sure what to make of. Once we found out we had a "black" on our hands, we were quite excited. He showed early on that he had great confirmation and was very athletic. He also proved right from the start to have a very playful disposition which we quickly fell in love with.

As he grew, we knew he had to be with one of the best trainers for halter, Mike Neal. So off he went to Mike Neal Arabian Center in Lake Geneva, WI which was where his sire Pyro Thyme SA was at during that time period. Mike liked Tux a lot and did very well with him taking several firsts with him and a top 5 for yearling colts at Region 10. Mike was key in giving Tux the foundation he needed to become what he is today and we will be forever grateful to Mike for this.

As Tux matured, we knew he had the ability to do something special. We wanted him to be able to mature both physically and mentally the best way possible so decided to go the path of dressage. Luckily KYB Dressage is in the area with both Kim and Yvonne Barteau as the head trainers. Kim and Yvonne specialize in dressage for all breeds but have a complete understanding of the Arabian breed through their work as head trainers at the Arabian Nights in Orlando, FL. So in 2008 Tux joined the KYB Dressage family. Since then, he's been challenged both physically and mentally and has grown to be a mature and intelligent stallion. Kim Barteau was quick to recognize Tux's playful personality that complimented his intelligence and decided to teach him liberty work in addition to the dressage work. Since he took to it so well, Kim and Yvonne decided to have Yvonne's son Jamie Lawton continue to work with Tux as he had more availability to show Tux at Arabian shows and to do some equine liberty performances with him.

As Jamie and Tux got to know each other it became apparent to us that this was a perfect pairing. They have quite an amazing list of accomplishments (see below) that we are very proud of. As of October 2015, we have retired Tux from showing dressage and will be concentrating on his career as a breeding stallion. He is continuing to produce foals with outstanding conformation, personalities and athletic ability. See Tux’s Foals tab for more information on his foals.

Tux's Accomplishments

Following are the awards for Tuxedo Thyme ABA ++++//. His dressage career covers 2009 – 2015. Tux is one of very few Arabian stallions that successfully competed at the FEI level of dressage which proves how athletic this stallion is. As his record below shows, he’s also done very well at Sport Horse Show Hack and Sport Horse in Hand. In Sport Horse in Hand he is consistently scoring in the 70’s or low 80’s with high scores of 87 and 88 at the 2012 Region 10 Championship. In 2014, Tux achieved his Legion of Masters and Legion of Excellence awards from the Arabian Horse Association.

In 2015 he was inspected for the Rheinland Pfalz-Saar International (RPSI) Warm Blood Breeding Stud Book and we are proud that he was selected to be in the RPSI top breeding Stud Book 1. As of 2015, he is the only Arabian Stallion in the RPSI Stud Book 1!!
