2018 marks a very special year for the Arab Horse Society. Having formed back in 1918, it is their centenary year and they are celebrating in style with two exciting events in Newmarket for you to enjoy.
This fascinating exhibition will be at Palace House from 22nd March through to the 13th July 2018 and celebrates the majesty of the world’s oldest horse breed. Delving into the history of the Arabian, there will be a selection of key works on public display that tell the story of the breed from its earliest Bedouin origins, right the way through to modern day.
You can discover the first mapped genome of an Arab horse, explore the story of the arrival of the breed in Britain back in the 19th century and also admire a huge array of paintings, prints and artefacts from the depths of the untapped archives of The Arab Horse Society.
On top of all this, there will be two spectacular parades of Arabian Horses in the Peter O’Sullevan Arena on Saturday 7th April at 3pm and Saturday 28th April at 2:30pm.
Don’t miss this wonderful celebration of not just a breed, but a legend!
This brilliant Newmarket event really takes you to the heart of breeding, owning and training an Arabian racehorse. There will be industry professionals including leading trainers to talk about this most wonderful of breeds, and even some of the equine athletes themselves.
The panel of industry experts that you will be hearing from features some top names in the industry, including winning trainer and jockey, Teresa Gavin! Your ticket will also include free entry to Palace House, and even entry into a prize draw to win a share in a racing syndicate for 2018.
Spaces for the Arabian Racing Seminar are strictly limited, so make sure you book now or you will miss out. Tickets cost £25 each and are available before 30th March 2018 from Linda Nicholson at the Arab Horse Society on 01672 555515 or email@example.com
