Announcement from the Pyramid Society:
Join us in June! Beginning on June 5th and continuing through June 10th, the Egyptian Event will draw visitors from all over the world to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. Presented by The Pyramid Society, the 37 year-old organization devoted to the preservation, perpetuation, and promotion of the Egyptian Arabian horse, the 2006 schedule includes an unforgettable variety of activities that will appeal to the entire family.
In celebration of the Event's 26th annual occurrence, plans are in the works for several new (and revisited) activities! From the return of the highly competitive "Road Apple Rumble" and hilarious "Donkey Races" to the new "Jewels of the Nile" Private Treaty Sale, visitors will be entertained from start to finish. Fitting right in with this year's festive atmosphere, the appropriately themed Gala and Art Auction, "Puttin' on the Ritz", scheduled for Friday, June 9th, will feature an enhanced format guaranteed to leave attendees with sides sore from. Other social opportunities will include the Welcome Breakfast held at the elegant Spindletop Hall on Tuesday morning, sponsored by John and Linda Dowling of Sahara Spirit Arabians, Bosque Farms, NM, which is complimentary for all newcomers and international visitors; and the Stallion Showcase and Social on Wednesday evening. Thursday afternoon will also be left open for a preview of sale horses as well as any social gatherings or parties hosted by attending members.
The Egyptian Event is truly a celebration of the Egyptian Arabian Horse, and to honor this tradition, the week will be packed with competitive classes, breath-taking presentations, and the opportunity to get close to these horses away from the show ring. The Pyramid Challenge Endurance Ride, which offers two distances - 25 miles and 50 miles, will take place on Saturday morning beginning at 6:00 a.m. Are you interested in trying endurance, but not 25 miles? Join the 10-mile fun ride, which will happen on Friday at 1:00 p.m.
The 2006 schedule is also jam packed with useful seminars and clinics. This year's topics will include everything from Natural Horsemanship to mare owner breeding tips and care of geriatric horses, to advice on naming your Arabian horse. And Joe Ferris will be on hand to discuss the progression of bloodlines from the stock of Prince Mohammed Ali to present day America. Ever wondered exactly what all your Egyptian Arabian is capable of? Then don't miss Monday morning's clinic, "Everything You Can Do With Your Egyptian Arabian Horse". Several well-known industry horsemen will be on hand to demonstrate the versatility of the Egyptian Arabian Horse.
The 2006 Egyptian Event will offer something for everyone. From excitement in the show ring to beautiful buys in the shopping promenade, and interesting seminars to fun social gatherings, the Event affords members and enthusiasts alike the opportunity to network, learn, and celebrate the Egyptian Arabian horse!
