President's Perspective - March, 2013

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - 8:40am

Dear Pyramid Society Members and Egyptian Arabian enthusiasts:

March brings new foals, extra work on the farm, and even greater anticipation of the upcoming Egyptian Event. March, 2013 marked another very important point in the history of The Pyramid Society. Befittingly, while in Cairo, Egypt, for a new breeders’ conference, one of our founders Judith Forbis of Ansata Arabian Stud reaffirmed the validity of ALL Straight Egyptian bloodlines as meeting the parameters set by founding members of The Pyramid Society in 1969. Specifically naming individual horses whose pedigrees have been questioned in recent years, Judi confirmed that those horses are ALL Straight Egyptians as defined by The Pyramid Soicety. The Society continues to uphold the charter of its founding members and stands ready to address any questions regarding the acceptance of any Straight Egyptian pedigrees/bloodlines.

In addition to this momentous gathering, I also want to call your attention to other gatherings by our Straight Egyptian devotees in this country. As you’ll see in this month’s Chariot, numerous members are taking an active stance at local and regional shows to have a stronger presence for the Straight Egyptian horse. And that’s really what it’s all about; members who take the time to enjoy their horses and their mutual friends who share this passion for both this horse and our organization. This kind of positive energy serves as a wonderful catalyst for others to join them. If you haven’t been actively engaged with your fellow breeders and members in your own community, I encourage you to take this time on behalf of the Straight Egyptian horse to do so.
