The 2015 Salon Du Cheval D’ El Jadida: The International Arabian Horse Show: Part two of three By Lisa Abraham The 2015 International Arabian Horse Show, from Oct 14-15, in El Jadida, Morocco, was an event with important potential. Although a relatively new show, it is already being supported by some of our most important farms, breeders and enthusiasts.

Jadem Arabians Open House: Monday Sept 28 th , 2015 By Lisa Abraham My first encounter with Christine Jamar was in 2012 at the Midwest and Fazenda Floresta Cocktail Party and Stallion Presentation in Scottsdale.

The 2015 Arabian Breeders World Cup, from April 16-19th in Las Vegas (USA), was another memorable show experience. This year marked its ninth anniversary as one of the world’s top showcases for Arabian horses. Known for its international appeal, competitors and guests travel from all over the world to participate. Denis Schoukens, from Belgium, was in attendance to support his son Glenn, of Schoukens Training Center. He shared, “I have been to the Breeders World Cup in Las Vegas several times and without a doubt, this year's show was the best. In many ways the World Cup reminds me of the top European shows. The staging and arrangement of the arena was excellent. It was quite elegant and nice for the people to watch and enjoy and it was an ideal set up for the handlers to present the horses. The great horses, great breeders and special friends made it a show to remember."
The South Point Hotel and Casino has been the home to the ABWC since the beginning.

It hosts over 60 shows annually, of various disciplines and breeds and offers 4600 seats with 1200 stalls—ample room for even the largest expositions.
