Member Spotlight

The Pyramid Society Member Spotlight highlights one Pyramid Society member farm each month which has exhibited notable dedication to the Straight Egyptian horse and the values of The Pyramid Society. The Member Spotlight is never a paid position. Past Member Spotlights include farms of all sizes and ages, each with a unique story to contribute to the ever-expanding volume of love and affection we feel for the Straight Egyptian horse!
