Dear breeders and lovers of the Arabian Horse,

DEAR BREEDERS & LOVERS OF THE ARABIAN HORSE, As we bid farewell to another incredible year filled with extraordinary achievements and unforgettable memories, we stand on the precipice of a new dawn, eagerly awaiting the wonders ahead. With hearts brimming with joy, we proudly present the Arabian Horse Magazine Special Middle East edition 2024, our tribute to the charisma and unrivalled beauty of the Arabian horse in the land of legends – Arabia! Arabian Horse Magazine flew to the Arabic Peninsula as the cold winter winds embraced Italy. The region was transformed into an enchanting community playground for breeders and enthusiasts from all corners of the globe. The winter Arabian Horses Championships, held across this magic land, showcased horses with indomitable spirit and breath taking beauty. From the shimmering sands of the World Arabian Horse Championship 2023, first held in Qatar, to the majestic valleys of the 8th Fujaira International AH Championship, the scene was set for an extraordinary equestrian extravaganza. The Special Middle East edition 2024 showcases captivating articles and breath taking images that will transport you to the heart of the action, providing an intimate glimpse into the wondrous world of Arabian horses and the people who play pivotal roles within it. We spoke with breeder Klikowa Arabians (Poland), judge Sulaiman Ali Al-hattali (Oman), handler Luca Piccione (Italy), photographer Conny Annunziata (Italy), sculptor Michael Turner (UK), Painter Kerstin Tschech (Germany), DC and artist Sama Safari (Iran). These interviews provide precious insights into the intricate dynamics of this vibrant community, showcasing the dedication, commitment, and, perhaps most importantly, an unwavering love shared by its members towards the Arabian breed. The magazine's cultural section includes the fascinating Art of Horseback Archery in Iran by photographer Hamid Shokoohi (Iran) and the historical dossier The Great of Past: The Minstril & Thee Desperado by Domenico Tocchi (Italy). As the sun rises over this new year, we invite you to join us on this thrilling adventure, where every page unfolds a new tale of triumph or a new lesson in life. Let us come together under the banner of the Arabian Horse and revel in the magic that lies ahead in 2024… THE AHM TEAM
