Who doesn't appreciate the magestic, refined beauty of the Arabian Horse? I have limited experience with Arabians, but have always been fascinated with their versatility and endurance in a multitude of disciplines.
If you don't already know, the 55th Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is now underway (February 11 to 21) at Westworld in Scottsdale, Arizona.
H&R's head editor, Juli Thorson, is there now circulating and soaking up the scene. If you happen to spot her, please introduce yourself. She'd love to meet any H&R reader...she's just that kind of dedicated editor!
I've included some beautiful photos one of our contributing photographers, Cappy Jackson, shot at the show in 2007 that accompanied our feature: H&R Road Trip: "Paradise Arabian Style," from our June 2007 issue. If you don't have this issue and would like a copy, please call our "Back Issues" department at 940-497-4600 or go to our Web site, HorseandRider.com and click on "Back Issues." Trust me...it's well worth the read and full of Arabian eye-candy...galore!
You can also watch live feeds of the show at scottsdaleshow.com. We're always trying to include a variety of breeds in our magazine, including Arabians. So, PLEASE, feel free to submit any article topics you'd like to see in the pages of H&R on Arabians or other breeds!
Cheers for now! AND, don't forget to say "Hi!" to Juli!!! [MORE PHOTOS FROM 2007, BELOW] ~Alana :-)
