vol. 1 – The author challenges many current notions about breeding and showing. He also questions whether Western breeders should continue to set the parameters for “Egyptian” breeding or whether breeders in Egypt will reclaim their history and take responsibility for safeguarding the Egyptian Arabian horse for the future. A book to challenge the thinking of all Arabian horse breeders.
vol. 2 — This is a breeder’s guide to the whole of Egyptian breeding and its sub-groups, with arguments regarding conservation breeding and outcrossing, and an examination of how the original Desert Arabian has been fragmented into sub-categories. The author defines his breeding principles and offers a plan of action to ensure the rebirth of the Desert Arabian, offering hope that there is still a way forward. The ideas transcend Egyptian breeding and offer lessons for all who care about the future of the Arabian horse.
