The Arabian Horse of Egypt

The Arabian Horse of Egypt. Photographs by Nasr Marei. Foreword by HRH Princess Alia Bint Al Hussein, published 2010

To my Father, Sayed Marei, and my mother, Soad Marei, with great love and appreciation. My father gave me the legacy of the horse and ideals to emulate in my life, and my mother, the love of life and respect for all living beings. To my sister, Amina, who loved and cherished horses and left us too soon.

Prized for their stamina and their acclimation to the harsh conditions of the Arabian deserts, the ancestors of the horses that are now recognized as the Egyptian Arabian purebred horse entered Egypt centuries ago, establishing the valuable bloodlines of the breed there. The breeding programs in Egypt therefore became the root source for the finest Arabian horses, attracting passionate enthusiasts from all corners of the world. Artists, poets, and historians have for centuries been inspired by their great beauty and romantic legacy.

Nasr Marei is the third-generation owner of a stud farm in Giza, Egypt. His love for and knowledge of the Egyptian Arabian horse, coupled with his sensitive and striking photography, have inspired this visual tribute. His extraordinary photographs, accompanied by text that traces the history and evolution of the Arabian’s journey into Egypt, celebrate the lineage of this living treasure of Egyptian heritage.
