Organizational Overview

The Pyramid Society was founded in 1969 with a goal of preserving and perpetuating Straight Egyptian Arabian horses – a highly esteemed bloodline group comprised of approximately 10% of the global breed population.  For nearly 50 years The Pyramid Society has devoted its efforts to promoting these unique horses through innovative activities and educational programs, and remains one of the most respected Arabian horse breeders’ organizations in the world.

The Egyptian Event, sponsored by The Society, is the world’s largest showcase of the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse.  Celebrating its 38th year in 2018, this event is one of the longest running shows to be held at the Kentucky Horse Park and features the finest Egyptian Arabians competing for substantial prize monies.  Social and educational elements are also important features of the Egyptian Event.
