40 Years of British
ARAB HORSE CHAMPIONS
This book contains a collection of photos of purebred in hand champions at the Arab Horse Society's annual show between 1953-1992, showing junior male and female and supreme male and female for each year. This book will appeal to owners, breeders and Arabian horse fanciers. In the early years the most influential breeders were still in the forefront--Lady Wentworth- Crabbet Arabian Stud, Miss Gladys Yule at Hanstead and Bill Musgrave Clark at Courthouse. After the dispersal of Crabbet and Hanstead, and the importation of influential animals from Poland, Russia, Spain and the United States, it is interesting and educational to compare the later horses to the earlier horses and see the fashion in Arabian horses change. Its also fascinating to note the persistence of some characteristics generation after generation in some families. This book contains champion line of descent in tail male, restricted to families having two or more winners and an index of champions listed alphabetically and chronologically

These books are becoming harder to find and an important addition to the library of anyone interested in the study of the Arabian horse.
