QUOTE OF THE MONTH: “…the Arabian appears to be thriving. Arabian horses are being bred, owned, and shown in more countries around the world than ever before. And speaking of shows, never before have point scores reached such dizzying heights as they do today. Never before have the champions been so radiantly beautiful. Surely, we must be living in a golden age? From a certain perspective, it may well appear so, but we should not confuse the business and the product. The industry may be thriving; but the Arabian horse itself, while in no danger of dying out, is in the process of changing beyond recognition.” — BETTY FINKE, “BRAVE NEW WORLD,” PAGE 80 JANUARY PHOTO OF THE MONTH AA CARTIER (Pimlico RCA x AA Melina by Thee Ice Man), 2008 stallion, owned by Apex…

what in the world

Growing up in San Diego, California, New Year’s Day was always synonymous with the Rose Bowl Parade, now in its 131st year. Around our house, the parade thrilled us kids mainly because of the horses…and because it was the lead-up to the Rose Bowl game, back when that game meant something. Today, hundreds of thousands watch the Rose Bowl Parade in person, and millions more watch it on TV around the world. So this year, when Arabian horses took their place as the fifth entry in the parade, there could not have been a greater audience for the breed. For five miles down Colorado Boulevard these stellar Arabians, one pulling a carriage, some in native costume, others in western and hunter tack, and endurance horses, never put a foot wrong. They…

“The Arabian horse itself, while in no danger of dying out, is in the process of changing beyond recognition.” History teaches us that progress is inevitable and cannot be stopped. Since the early nineteenth century, progress in all spheres of human life has steadily accelerated, and is still doing so, but not all results have been an improvement. True, industrialization and mechanization have made life easier in many respects. But they also introduced a whole new set of problems that continue to affect us. When machines take over more and more of the work, this means that more and more people are out of work. Craft has been transformed into industry. Everything today is an industry, even healthcare. This is also true of Arabian horse breeding, which is now referred to, even…
