We have returned from an absolutely incredible trip to the United Arab Emirates and Jordon a couple weeks ago. The trip started out with our group of twelve including Bob & Dixie North, Daryl Larson, Sigi Constanti, Greg Knowles, Jeff and Rich Sloan and Andrea and Judy Nordquist & her daughter Kim along with Kim's husband John meeting in New York for the very long flight (twelve hours) to Dubai. Once we landed we were all amazed at what a great city Dubai is, very clean, safe and the things to see and do are limitless! We took lots of pictures and look forward to sharing them with you, visit our Travels page or click here to see the Dubai pictures. While in Dubai we had an opportunity to visit some incredible stud farms, Thank You to the following for allowing us to visit, share with you our passion for the Arabian horse and tour your beautiful facilities. Oh and we can not forget the food, everywhere we went it seemed the food was endless! * H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi - Ruler of Sharjah and owner of Al Qasimi Stables * H.H. Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi owner of Ajman Stud * Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Al Thani owner of Alzobair Stud * Sheikh Mohammed Bin Saud Al Qassimi owner of Albidayer Stud One of our main reasons for visiting Dubai was to attend the Dubai International Horse Show and the Sharjah International Arabian Horse Festival . Both shows were very well done, beautiful atmosphere, wonderful people, awesome food once again and of course the most important part the gorgeous Arabian horses. Thank you to Sheikh Ammar for arranging our visit to the Dubai International Horse Show and the Dubai World Cup. Thank you to Sheikh Mohammed for the invitation to attend the Sharjah International Arabian Horse Festival. We look forward to welcoming you to the Arabian Breeders World Cup in Las Vegas , April 2007.
