Sights and Sounds of the 2009 Egyptian Event
As the world's largest showcase for the Egyptian Arabian horse held each year in June at the Kentucky Horse Park, the Egyptian Event has long been viewed as one of the most important shows to attend on the international Arabian event calendar. This is America's premier showcase of the very essence and foundation of the Arabian horse. Attracting attendees from around the world, it offers members the opportunity to showcase their horses to an international audience. Visitors join together to honor this noble horse with its rich history and venerated traditions.
The Egyptian Event offers breeders and owners diverse opportunities to showcase their horses. They bring their yearlings, two year olds, three year olds and mature horses to compete in halter classes and performance classes where judges from many different countries select the most representative of the breed.
The Event is much more than a horse show. Egyptian Arabian stallions are presented to the public in beautiful venues, where mare owners may consider prospects for breeding. Several educational seminars are offered to all attendees on subjects such as equine health and reproductive issues, history, genetics, training, and endurance riding. The Event highlights endurance riding with a 25 mile and a 50 mile ride. Usually, more than 60 riders compete for special prizes in these rides.
A wonderful Gala evening brings together members to honor and pay tribute to the leaders in our community. In addition, barn parties are held at the show grounds, where farms host visitors and present their horses.
While the horse show is exciting, the seminars are educational, and the barn parties are fun, the Event is a special time for friends to meet, to reconnect, to create new memories, and to share their passion for the Egyptian horse.
