SCOTTSDALE – Founded in 2021 by the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona, a non-profit organization, National Arabian Horse Day on Feb. 19 seeks to introduce and educate the world on the benefits of engaging with Arabian horses and thus ensuring the breed's longevity.
National Arabian Horse Day falls during the world’s largest Arabian horse event, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, taking place at WestWorld in Scottsdale from Feb. 16 through Feb. 26. The AHAA is planning special celebrations at the show on Feb. 19 and welcomes the public to get involved by attending the show.
“We are thrilled to have a national day recognizing the Arabian horse and we look forward to celebrating this day with entertaining events for attendees,” said Taryl O’Shea executive director of the AHAA. “This breed is extremely special, and we hope that more people get involved in the Arabian horse community and experience the joy and excitement these horses can bring to your life.”
On Feb. 19 those attending the event can meet the incredible Keystone Arabian Horse Ambassadors. Attendees will be greeted by the ambassadors and their horse as they enter the gates of the show.
Exhibitors will participate in the Keystone 50/50 Egg and Spoon Challenge where they will dress up in their best costumes and compete by balancing an egg on a spoon while riding an Arabian horse. Attendees are encouraged to participate by voting for their favorite contestant. The challenge will take place during the last class of the afternoon on Sunday, Feb. 19 in the dome following class 120f for all the JTR’s.
