The 36th Annual Egyptian Event will be held June 7-11, 2016 at the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, and will celebrate the international role that Egyptian Arabian horses have played throughout recent history.
Attendees from over 15 countries throughout North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia travel to Lexington each year to enjoy the Event’s world-class competition, festivities, educational activities, camaraderie and of course, the world’s most beautiful horses.
Show chair, Lisa Cifrese stated, “The Egyptian Event is the only show of its kind in America featuring international competition and presentations of the world’s top caliber Egyptian Arabian horses. Our members share a deep passion for the rich history and rare bloodlines of these horses, and often state that attending the Event each year is like coming home.”
Competitions and activities scheduled for this year’s Event include: halter and performance classes, championships and awards ceremonies, formal and casual socials, educational seminars, youth & family activities, unique shopping opportunities and auctions, liberty classes, a stick horse class and more. The Event will also feature a special Hall of Stallions and Breeders Pavilion at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Big Barn, where presentations and socials will be held throughout the week. The Hall of Stallions was a key feature in the Event’s early years, where top Straight Egyptian Arabian stallions were presented and celebrated, with many of them going on to achieve international champion status. This year’s attendees look forward to watching history recreated.
