In what's already been a remarkable life, Arabian breeder and trainer Sheila Varian received two new honors this summer. A documentary on her life, The Legacy of Sheila Varian, had its world premier in early August and she was inducted into the Western States Horse Expo's Hall of Fame for 2014.


The documentary is produced by Evie Tubbs Sweeney and in association with Platinum Performance. It premiered at the Clark Center in Central California's Arroyo Grande, where her internationally renowned breeding and training program is.


"Sheila Varian is a world-class leader in the Arabian Horse breed," says Horse Expo founder and president Miki Nelson. "She has accomplished so much in a male dominated field. We are very proud to honor her as our 2014 Hall of Fame inductee."
