A Visit to the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show
If you are in Scottsdale, Arizona during the winter months, then a visit to the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show will make for a wonderful experience.
We made our first visit to the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show last year, and we had no idea how beautiful these Arabian horses were. As we were watching this year’s show, the announcer was instructing us that the Arabian horse is known for its distinctive head shape (it looks like a sea horse to me), its long flowing, high tail carriage, their high spirit, and their marble-hard bone structure.
The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has grown to one of the largest in the world. It spans 11 days, with 2,000 horses coming from all over the world hoping to capture the show’s large championship winnings.
This massive show has three areas to watch the horses, two massive tents full of horse related artwork, clothing, leather goods, and a whole host of items tempting your credit card to make itself known.
Being from the Midwest, and having never been around horses, we felt like we had just stepped into a very unfamiliar world as we were wide-eyed with wonder at these beautiful creatures. Yet, we found everyone to be very friendly, willing to explain the Arabian horse culture, and once again giving us a most wonderful experience.
We highly recommend a visit to the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.
