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.

Congratulations, Jerry and Kristy Wagner, on your purchase of the Monticello V champion son, Marcello SS!
Marcello SS is a seasoned and titled show horse: 2018 U.S. National Top Ten Western Pl Futurity winner and 2020 Youth National Champion in Arabian Western Pl JTR Elite CH. Much like his sire, Marcello is as kind and willing as he is talented, and we are looking forward to having him join our show string (and his sire, who stands at stud here!) at RO Lervick Arabians.
Congratulations, Jerry and Kristy!
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.
Please enjoy this wonderful story on Out of Cyte by Christy Egan.

Monticello V Moving to R.O. Lervick Arabians
After a wonderful chapter at Varian Arabians, we are happy to announce that Monticello V is moving to Washington. The decision was incredibly difficult to make... Varian Arabians is an idyllic place like no other and was also Monticello's birthplace. Ultimately, however, the idea of Cello residing closer to Carolyn Lesley, his devoted owner, won out. We are thrilled to see Monticello join the stallion station of respected R.O. Lervick Arabians, a four-decade breeding program that has produced champions in both halter and performance.
Carolyn would like to thank Angela Alvarez and the incredible team at Varian Arabians for their dedication to Monticello V, as well as Dennis Wigren and Team Lervick for warmly welcoming him and the rest of the Lesley Farm horses.
A Note From R.O. Lervick
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome the ‘Western Pleasure Phenomenon,’ Monticello V, to the Pacific Northwest. His breeding prowess is well-known, leveraging him to take over where his sire, Jullyen El Jamaal, left off. He will be an exciting addition to the R.O. Lervick stallion roster! Carolyn, we are looking forward to a wonderful future together. Thank you for entrusting us with your program.” | Dennis Wigren
Following the announcement of breeding manager Tague Johnson's retirement, we would like to introduce the duo that will be assuming duties in the breeding barn:

Bethany Saltz has been a member of Team Lervick for well over a year. She graduated from University of Arizona with a B.S in Animal Science with a focus in Equine Studies. Bethany is excited to work with Mike and further her knowledge in equine breeding and reproduction.
