2023 AHT Readers Choice Performance Sire of the Year
Leading Sire AEPA 2023 U S National Championships

June 26, 2013 –
IXL Noble Express+ x Bonita Afire by Afire Bey V

Inception (by U.S. National Champion Park IXL Noble Express+ x Bonita Afire by Afire Bey V) is owned and bred by Dave and Gail Liniger of Maroon Fire Arabians; managed by Shea Stables and Kiesner Training, and trained and shown by Joel Kiesner. Inception took roses in the prestigious 2017 U.S. National Champion AEPA $100,000 English Futurity, the 2018 U.S. National Champion English Pleasure Junior Horse and, in 2019 and 2020, the U.S. National Champion Park Horse (open), all four championships by unanimous decision! Inception was also the APAHA Saddle Seat Horse of the Year in 2017 and 2019.

Inception’s pedigree is filled with Hall of Fame mares and great National Champion Park and English Pleasure horses. He is no mystery. He comes from the great trotting blood of multi-National Champion Park horse, MHR Nobility and National Champion Park, IXL Noble Express+. Inceptions first foals arrived in 2018 and rapidly began making their mark in the Arabian National show ring.

At the close of 2023, Inception is the sire of 25 National winning offspring. These outstanding sons and daughters have won 62 National awards, including 13 National Championships and Reserve National Championships. Inception was the 2023 U.S. National AEPA Leading Futurity English sire with six winners in the Purebred and Half-Arabian competitions.

Inception’s initial foal crops have exceeded every imaginable expectation. The outstanding size of Inception sons and daughters is utterly profound. Stretchy and well balanced, with strong, long legs and excellent bone, these offspring are breathtakingly exotic with extreme Arabian type, large, expressive eyes, faces and ears. Most dynamic are their impressive, long, beautifully shaped necks and superb carriage. Their hock action is taking the Arabian horse to an entirely new level of English style quality and character. Inception brings together a show-stopping combination of bold trot, extreme presence, and beauty.

“Inception has a perfect pedigree, and his offspring embody superbly absolutely everything good that their sire’s flawless bloodlines have to offer.”
