President's Perspective - February, 2015

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 - 6:53am


Dear Pyramid Society Members and Egyptian Arabian Enthusiasts:

When anyone mentions "weather in February", I tend to think drab, cold and ice, despite the fact I'm a Texan! However, having just returned from Scottsdale, I'm resetting my gauge to think sun, blue skies and 75 degrees. And I'll also be thinking of an incredibly large number of Arabian horses and visitors to see them! This year's 60th Jubilee seemed to have broken many records. As you may know, this was the first year the Scottsdale Show held classes specific to the Egyptian bloodlines. By all accounts, these classes for both Straight Egyptian horses as well as the Heritage classes were well received. It was a pleasure working with Taryl and others at the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona to have a Pyramid Society presence in conjunction with these classes, including a "Q's, A's and Cocktails" in the patrons' lounge overlooking the arena. Sincere gratitude is extended to our generous sponsors: Athala Arabians, Dreamco Arabians, Arabians at Egg & I, Kehilan Arabians, Sonrisa Farms, Thornewood Farm, and Witts End Arabians for making this possible. Also, a special "thank you" to our Pyramid Society members who showed their horses and congratulations to all those winners referenced in this newsletter. Our presence at this show will continue to grow as I believe these kinds of opportunities to showcase our Straight Egyptians in such high-profile venues prove valuable on innumerable levels.
Attending the Scottsdale Show only "wetted my appetite" for the Egyptian Event, to once again see the Egyptian Arabian horses and visit with like-minded members and devotees. And I'm hoping for the same kind of weather from June 2 - 6th in Kentucky that we had in Arizona in February!
