LAS VEGAS ARABIAN BREEDERS WORLD CUP 2017
South Point Hotel
Las Vegas, United States
Organizer: Taryl O'Shea (Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance)
The international Arabian horse community has embraced and supported the Arabian Breeders World Cup (ABWC) from its inception and they continue to be among the show’s biggest supporters.The first ABWC was held in 2007 at the South Point Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The organizers selected Las Vegas as the host city because they wanted an event that was glamorous and exciting.The first show was somewhat small, but truly international and totally exquisite. Creating a world-class extravaganza like the Arabian Breeders World Cup did not happen overnight. It has taken the hard work and resources of very dedicated people to accomplish this lofty goal. Yet, each year there is a noticeable improvement, or addition, in some significant area. The first two years of the show confirmed the desire of breeders and owners to participate in an international level event dedicated to purebred Arabian halter and breeding horses. The level of quality in the horses brought to the show was everything the organizers had hoped for - and more! The World Cup began as a forum for breeders. The group’s goals were, and continue to be: to create an atmosphere of generosity and sharing, to acknowledge and reward the efforts and achievements of breeders, and to encourage breeders to continue to strive for excellence in their efforts. Best of all – the Arabian Breeders World Cup is a family friendly event that is completely free and open to the public. This allows everyone to celebrate the beauty, the history, and the mystery of the Arabian horse and be inspired to follow their dreams!
