Our Arabian Horses
and Sharon Skirbunt have been active in the
Arabian Horse Association for a number of years in the
breeding and showing of their Arabian horses. SC Malinnium,
owned by Jim and Sharon, won National Top Ten honors as a
three-year-old and as a four-year-old in Western Pleasure classes.
In addition, several horses owned by Jim and Sharon have
successfully competed in open halter competition, and both Jim and
Sharon have appeared in the show ring with their horses in amateur
halter competition. Their barn is not restricted to show
They have accommodated many a horse in need of a home on an
interim or permanent basis. As Jim says, "I've been bitten,
kicked, dragged, stomped on, jumped over and bucked off and I would
not have it any other way! My experience with horses has
taught me a
great deal and has provided an important balance in life."
Adds Sharon, "Horses are beautiful and strong, yet fragile.
Working with them has provided me with a unique perspective that I
would not have otherwise developed. All of these life
experiences contribute to our ability to represent our clients and
the diverse issues that they bring to our office.
