Founded in 1969 by a small group of passionate North American breeders, The Pyramid Society quickly took the reins in establishing a mission with core values and principles which its members worldwide continue to embrace decades later. These include:
Protecting the nobility and heritage of the Egyptian Arabian horse;
Respecting the breed standard;
Providing unequaled, worldwide identity to the Egyptian Arabian horse through marketing and outreach;
Showcasing the versatility of the Egyptian Arabian horse in the most positive manner possible;
Educating audiences worldwide on the proven and invaluable source of outcross blood for the equine world at large;
Uniting its members through local, regional, national and international activities in the unified pursuit of breeding excellence.
The Pyramid Society invites Egyptian Arabian enthusiasts, breeders, and supporters worldwide to join us in our continued mission of promoting and perpetuating the Egyptian Arabian horse. In addition to maintaining and strengthening the identity of the Straight Egyptian, members receive numerous ongoing benefits as outlined herein.
