TRAVELERS REST ARABIAN HORSES

A Catalog of the Travelers Rest Arabian Horses

by General J.M. Dickinson

This book contains rare photos of early imports and extensive pedigree charts. Gen. Dickinson was one of the pioneer Arabian Horse breeders during the 1930's on and he gathered together many of the most important Arabians that had been imported into the U.S. He also traveled to Poland and imported some fine Arab Mares and the Davenport sire Antez, who had been exported for use in the Polish breeding program. He had been tested at racing and had established race records in the U.S. This importation was the last one before the outbreak of WW2 and saved these valuable lines for American breeding programs. Gen. Dickinson was truly a scholar of the Arabian horse and he spent a lot of time in the archives of noted Arab breeders in Poland obtaining much information that may also have been lost in the war. In compiling this catalog, Gen. Dickinson gathered up all his research material and published this work which featured text on History, Influence, Arabs in Tennessee in Early Times, Arab qualities, Families-strains. He discusses his breeding stock at both Travelers Rest and River Grange and talks of sales policies. Next are sections on Origins of Breeding Stock imported from Poland, Egypt; France, England and Arabia.
