British National Champion Stallion 2012
by WH Justice out of SG Hessta Shaklana (Essteem)
Enigmatic World Champion stallion ESSTEEM, took up residency at Georgian Arabians for two years, to become cornerstone of an influential breeding program producing a core of powerful well structured mares. The vision then was to find the ultimate (refined in type) stallion, to breed them with and along came WH JUSTICE.
The combination of this exquisite stallion and homebred ESSTEEM daughter, SG HESSTA SHAKLANA produced stallion SG IMAGINE. Who among other titles was awarded the United Kingdoms most prestigious prize BRITISH NATIONAL CHAMPION STALLION in 2012.

SG Imagine’s first foal crop were all impressive fillies and in 2014 black daughter SG VIENNA IMAGE, joined the prestigious line up of BRITISH NATIONAL CHAMPIONS.
Pictured here with SG Vienna Image, Susan describes her feelings for the Arabian Purebred….
Its a given that Arabian horses are beautiful to look at but they are so much more. Their powerful presence once seen, never forgotten as they move like the wind tails held high in effortless motion. As a breed they are often described as temperamental and highly strung which I challenge on every level as a misconception of their indomitable spirit, incredible communicative character and above all intelligence!!
The athletic ability of this breed of horse is unquestionable and the value of their strength and stamina, second to none in competitive endurance. To doubters I say, please don’t judge the Arabian horse on what you might have heard, visit us at Georgian Arabians and witness their magic and true beauty of mind and spirit, see for yourselves……..
THE BEST OF FAMILY THE BEST OF FRIENDS

Susan describes her one in a million husband!
In the year 2010 Susan lost her beloved husband Simon MacCorkindale after a seven year battle with cancer and in 2016 launched a charity in his name Lastinglife.org.uk
In life they were the perfect couple and all who knew them touched by their spirit and extraordinary love for one another. Adventurers, pioneers, believers – they were a dynamic duo.
Susan continues to build on the plans and dreams they had once shared and the success of Georgian Arabians she says, is born out of Simon’s passion, courage, strength and tenacity with out whom none of it would have been achievable.
Triple Crown Champion
The Cornerstone of a remarkable breeding programme
British National Sire of the year 2004
In the year 2000 Georgian Arabians welcomed the arrival of charismatic Triple Crown Champion ESSTEEM to the United Kingdom and the stud farm. In residence for two years, his time there had a profound influence on the breeding programme. He became its cornerstone and his kind and supreme presence was unforgettable in the form of a legacy of exceptional offspring.Susan’s love for this enigmatic stallion was absolute. She felt that his superb structure, body and limb would assist in her long term vision of a breeding programme and foundation of substantially made mares.
2004 saw the arrival of the first Georgian Arabian ESSTEEM progeny on the show circuit and yearling colt SG SPIRIT OF ESSTEEM surpassed every expectation that year, when honoured with the title of British National Champion Junior Male and Reserve Supreme of the British National Show.
