Dear breeders and lovers of the Arabian Horse,

Dear Readers and Lovers of the Arabian Horse, As we approach the end of another remarkable year, we are thrilled to share the pages of this Winter edition, providing an inside look into the fascinating world of Arabian horses. Our team has had an incredible year in 2023, full of travelling, timeless beauty, and elegance but also extraordinary projects and achievements within the Arabian horse community. We have witnessed the most exciting shows, tales and accomplishments throughout the past twelve months. Within the glossy confines of this number, you will discover a treasure trove of interesting articles that delve into the rich heritage and everlasting allure of Arabian horses. We have toured no-stop all over Europe, the Middle and even the Far East to collect precious informative, visual-media and photographic material about the breed's historical legacy and developments in local breeding. For this Winter edition 2023, we had the privilege of conducting exclusive interviews with a renowned Straight Egyptian breeder and dear friend like Medhat Gaber from Egypt, the show-judge Jonas Salzmann from Germany/Kuwait, a young passionate video-maker like Michel Reboulaz from Italy, an inspiring breeder and visionary President of the Zimbabwe Arabian Horse Association, Matt Harwin. All are fully committed to the Arabian horse cause. Their conversations offer relevant testimonies to the industry and dedication required to nurture, live by and work with these magnificent creatures. So, prepare to be inspired as you read about their professional journeys, the challenges, the achievements, or the profound bond they share with these majestic horses. But that's not all! Arabian Horse Magazine is also your front-row ticket to the most prestigious Arabian horse shows and events of the ongoing calendar.
