A tribute to Bobbi Patscheider

Arabian Horse Racing has lost one of its most dedicated supporters and leaders. Bobbi Patscheider, editor of the Arabian Finish Line Magazine, died May 15th at 6:14 a.m. Her husband Don and two of her children were in Florida with her. Bobbi will always be an icon of humble grace and determination, an example for us all as she was motivated always with the best interest of Arabian racing in her heart.

Bobbi tirelessly produced the Arabian Finish Line magazine along with her husband Don since the early 90s, providing an invaluable monthly resource for all involved. Few knew the work that went into Bobbi's labors, a mission that she did so well her statistics and collections of articles and reports proved many times over and over again the most accurate and consistent record the industry has for the sport. In addition to the monthly magazine, Bobbi faithfully researched horses to produce the annual Stallion Guides and Farm Guides.

Bobbi's unfaltering work not only provided invaluable news and reference tools for all of us, but pulled the industry together and has kept us informed in a way that could never be accomplished by any other. Bobbi's contribution to all of us was a gift. She was a tough and determined woman with her own strong opinions, yet such kindness and patience she was loved and appreciated by all.

The Arabian horse industry is fortunate to have known this important lady, and to have been so graciously served by her. We will miss Bobbi so much. Our thoughts are with Don and his family. No services are announced at this time.
