Adding to the prestige for 2016, Markel, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show as well as  Dennis Hilkhuijsen, the artist, proudly announce that a handsome trophy entitled “Egyptian Pharaoh” will be awarded to the winners in the Straight Egyptian and Egyptian Heritage Championships.  Dennis Hilkhuijsen has been a long time member of the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona (and AHA) and has had a life-long love for the Egyptian Arabian Horse.  Inspired by the petroglyphs of the ancient Egyptians, Dennis appreciates the Egyptian’s heritage, and feels they are the perfect combination of beauty, strength and loyalty.  Rich in history, this mighty horse has survived the test of time and today is loved by so many. Dennis was awarded the "Breakthrough Artist" of the year by The Pyramid Society in 2006 and continues his love of art and sculpting. He shares his farm, Bronze Creek Arabians with his wife Kristina and a menagerie of pets and Arabian show horses in Apache Junction, Arizona
