A friendly, gregarious businessman, Harold Orr was often described as an old-style entrepreneur. He and his wife, Dolly, founded Orrion Farms in 1984 birthed from a shared passion for the Arabian horse.
Under the Orr’s watchful eye and cunning foresight, Orrion Farms developed into being a landmark program for some of the most successful showing and breeding in the international Arabian horse community. Notable horses including the legendary sire, RSD Dark Victory, as well as National Champions GA Honisuckle Rose and OFW Magic Wan. Still today, the OFW program is mainstream and influential with broodmares such as OFW Psylhouette (dam of World Champion Stallion, EKS Alihandro) and OFW Mishaal (dam of World Champions Kahil Al Shaqab and Wadee Al Shaqab).
In 2016, Steve and Christina Poore took their place in the farm’s next chapter with a commitment to continue the Orrion Farms legacy in their own reimagined way. The Poore’s – alongside many of Orrion Farms’ original and loyal staff – joined together to bridge the past and the future to a level rarely seen.
