Bright lights, big city and an awe-inspiring venue — a perfect platform for the introduction of the Arabian horse to Central Park, New York, and a Big Apple audience. Electricity lled
the air, music pumped through the sound system and the crowd quieted, anticipating the rst horse of the US Open Arabian Show at the Rolex Central Park Horse Show to enter the ring and position the Arabian horse on a worldwide stage.
The journey to this moment was an incredible, adventure- lled story. Never has such a venue been presented to the Arabian horse in North America. Beyond a horse show, this remarkable and historic event set a new benchmark, allowing the Arabian horse in all its majesty and versatility to be showcased to the world in a picturesque, world-class setting equal to Paris, Aachen or Poland. The possibility of marketing a new image of the Arabian breed emerged here in NYC.
