International panelists will discuss the role of the foundation sires in North America and their impact on today’s horses.


This conference is for anyone who is interested in having a successful horse breeding program. The principals and discussions can be applied to all breeds to improve the overall approach to raising horses.


“I chose to raise Straight Egyptian Arabians because they are so versatile and intelligent,” said Lisa Cifrese, owner of Thornewood Farm. “They are capable of performing in Dressage, jumping, eventing, working with cattle, racing, pleasure riding, and many other disciplines. They are also excellent for anyone who has an interest in horses. Another benefit is the preservation of Straight Egyptian Arabians is a wonderful way to have a working investment.”

The Pyramid Society is a member organization actively seeking to educate, inspire and connect people world-wide who are interested in Arabian horses with Egyptian bloodlines. Formed in 1969 by a small group of American Arabian horse breeders, The Pyramid Society originally set out to prevent Straight Egyptian Arabian blood from completely vanishing in North America.


Today, the organization has grown into an international community of breeders, owners, and supporters who remain dedicated to this mission: to preserve, perpetuate and promote the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse as the premiere source of classic Arabian type in the world.
