At Arabian Horse Travel my goal is to be the ultimate guide to various popular horse show city destinations frequented by the active Arabian horse showing community and by their friends and family within the United States and Canada. For some joie de vivre I plan to learn about places that are not as close to home and share what discover with you. #thinkBeijing.

In 2019, I’ll be sharing info on the latest obsessions and behind the scene glimpses at the big shows. You can look forward to posts about:

  • Product Reviews
  • Seasonal collections
  • Rider’s fashion
  • Educational posts
  • Equine author discoveries, interviews and book reviews

Anything related to horses, really.
