Jennifer McCloud is a new addition to the training staff at R O Lervick Arabians this winter. But she’s not a new face in the Washington state Arabian horse community, and not really new to the Lervick family either. Jennifer’s folks have always had horses. She laughs and is obviously pleased with the fact that she was a “horse crazy kid”. She’s trained with numerous noted horsemen in Washington, including Ron Palelek at Vantage Point Farm. For the past five years Jennifer has had her horse, multi-Champion Aria Marcan+/ (barn name “Marcus”) with Dennis Wigren. Both Dennis and Jennifer have shown “Marcus” successfully. Dennis showed him to Canadian National Champion 2-Year-Old Colt! Though Jennifer has had success as a trainer working with all manner of show horses, including top Country and English talent, she particularly enjoys Hunter Pleasure horses, Dressage and FEI as well. Join us in welcoming this talented lady to our team!!

Cytosk+++/ x Holli Berry by Huckleberry Bey++
The first foals bred by Roger and Linda Lervick arrived at their new farm in Washington in 1978 but the real beginning of R O Lervick Arabians’ breeding program dates to the arrival of their great show horse and sire, Cytosk+++/ (Mi Tosk x Cyster) in 1991. Singularcylection’s dam Holli Berry was purchased by Roger and Linda Lervick as a yearling in 1992, just three days after the birth of Cytosk’s first foal at the farm. Holli Berry went on to be a 3-time National Top 10 and Canadian National Reserve Champion in driving. Following those horse show victories she produced 7 National winners for Lervicks, including Singularcylection, her third foal.
Singularcylection took her first championship in Mare Halter at two and was a U.S. National Top 10 the following year in the U.S. National English Pleasure Futurity with trainer Dennis Wigren. Beginning with her first foal in 2001, she produced 15 foals, 7 are National winners, 4 of those have been National and/or Reserve National Champions so far. Her son ROL Firecracker+// is 17-time National or Reserve National Champion, and his sister ROL Fire Lily+// is 6-time National or Reserve National Champion. Singularcylection’s national champions include 5-time National Champion and Reserve, ROL Lets Dance+/and Reserve National Champion ROL Catching Fire+/. Though bred to five different stallions in her lifetime, all Singularcylection’s National winners were sired by Afire Bey V. Between them they have won 85 National Top 10 awards and 29 National Championships and Reserves.
Singularcylection was Lervick’s best producing purebred home bred. Kind and gentle, literally everyone loved her. She is missed and thought of often.
“Like their dam, all of Singularcylection’s children have been bright, interested and talented, as well as easy to start and train,” says RO Lervick trainer, Dennis Wigren. “We have both her two and 3-year-old offspring in training now. Both are outstanding.”
As of 2021, the Lervicks have been breeding high-quality, nationally winning Arabian and half-Arabian horses for 43 years.
... Perhaps their greatest achievement, even beyond those famous, annual RO Lervick national winners, has been their ability to orchestrate generation after generation of exceptional horses.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved black stallion and head breeding sire, Out of Cyte. He lived his entire life of 28 years at this farm and carried the torch of his incredible sire, Cytosk, with a poise and skill all to his own. Rest in peace, and thanks for the many years together. You'll be greatly missed but never forgotten.
