REST ARABIAN HORSES
Catalog of the Travelers Rest Arabian Horses
by General J.M.
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.
