Centenary: The Arab Horse Society: 1918-2018

Compiled and edited by Anne Brown, a Society Council member and a former Hon President, the book gallops through Arab racing, endurance, showing and dressage. This special centenary edition is lavishly illustrated and luxuriously bound – a great gift for any horse lover.

The Arab Horse Society will celebrate its Centenary in 2018 with a host of events, including the publication of a lavishly illustrated hardback history to mark the occasion, published by Medina.

Her Royal Highness Princess Alia Al Hussein of Jordan, one of the Society’s patrons, provides the Foreword. The Hon President for the year, Peter Upton – who knows more about the world of Arab horses than the rest of the membership put together – writes about the Society’s origins. The doyenne of Crabbet Arabian breeding, Rosemary Archer and her daughters Elizabeth and Caroline, contribute the chapter on Crabbet Park, whose horses were, and still are, the backbone of many Arabian studs around the world.

The book charts the successes and achievements of Arabian horses in Britain and overseas, from their origins as the source of every Thoroughbred racing today, to Olympic winners such as Three Day Eventer Tamarillo and world-beating athletes over 160 kms.

The Society was the first ever formed to register the pedigrees of pure Arabian horses and continues to lead today, as a founder member of the World Arab Horse Organisation and as a key player in many other equestrian activities.
