Two innovative performance programs, hosted by The Pyramid Society and designed to support and promote the versatility of Egyptian Arabian horses in a wide range of performance disciplines, are now open for public enrollment. Whether you ride for pleasure, take lessons or compete on a local or National level, The Pyramid Society has a performance program for you.

The Performance Horse Award Program (PHAP) is open for enrollment through April 30. This progressive awards program recognizes those Straight Egyptian and Egyptian Sired/Bred horses that have competed throughout North America during the 2017 competition season. Winners receive recognition through social media, digital and print publications, and through a dedicated awards ceremony at the 2018 Egyptian Event.

The Riders UP Recognition (RUR) Program allows participants to track their hours in the saddle for non-competitive activities such as trail riding, pleasure riding, lessons, training, demonstrations, and more. This program has been particularly popular with international riders and those who enjoy time with their horses under saddle yet may not be ready for the competition ring. Digital badges, certificates and custom medals are awarded according to several incremental levels of participation.

Both programs have been widely received by the Egyptian Arabian horse community, and are available with no membership or fee requirements.

“We are so pleased to provide this world-wide visibility for our talented Egyptian Arabian performance horses. Although representing a small percentage of bloodlines throughout the Arabian breed, Egyptian Arabians continually take home a high percentage of top awards in the show ring and in other competitive disciplines. We invite and encourage your participation and sponsorship to help assure the continued growth of these valuable programs,” said Jaleen Hacklander, Chair of the Performance Program Committee.
