Lexington, KY (November 1,2012) – Standard of Excellence: A Guide to The Pyramid Society Straight Egyptian Arabian Horse is the essential new publication from The Pyramid Society, presenting the ideal framework for seeing, evaluating, judging, and showing the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse. Having made its debut as the centerpiece of the highly-esteemed 5th National Egyptian Breeders Conference, held in October, 2012, the Standard of Excellence will now become the basis for judging at the Society's annual Egyptian Event, beginning in 2013.

Meticulously designed by The Pyramid Society's Education Committee for use in the field, the new Standard of Excellence booklet covers a full range of breed characteristics, including Type, Head, Neck & Shoulder, Body & Topline, Legs, Feet, Movement, Endurance & Stamina, Tail Carriage, Color, Markings &∓∓ Coat, Skeleton & Height, and Character, all in addition to a new category to be implemented at the 2013 Egyptian Event: Balance, Quality & Substance! The Standard's 36 full-sized pages combine a treasure-trove of historical quotes with clear, concise teachings and acute illustrations, making it a must-own resource for beginners and experts alike.

Since its inception, The Pyramid Society has worked tirelessly to establish a clear definition of the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse, promoting breeding excellence through a variety of member programs, educational activities, and premium publications. The public release of this Standard of Excellence, which itself draws earnestly from a vast collection of modern and historical studies of the Arabian breed, represents a critical moment in the life of The Pyramid Society, reaffirming the organization's role as the torch-bearer for Egyptian Arabian breeders, owners, trainers, and handlers worldwide.

The Pyramid Society's Standard of Excellence is now available to the public exclusively through The Pyramid Society's online Marketplace at or by calling The Pyramid Society's offices at 859-231-0771. Non-members may purchase the Standard booklet for $25, and current Society members receive a $5 Member Discount.


The Pyramid Society is a member organization actively seeking to educate, inspire and connect people world-wide who are interested in Arabian horses with Egyptian bloodlines. Formed in 1969 by a small group of American Arabian horse breeders, The Pyramid Society originally set out to prevent Straight Egyptian Arabian blood from completely vanishing in North America.

Today, The Pyramid Society has grown into an international community of breeders, owners, and supporters who remain dedicated to this mission: to preserve, perpetuate and promote the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse as the premiere source of classic Arabian type in the world. Visit today to learn more about the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse, The Pyramid Society, and the many ways you can get involved.
