CULTURAL, EDUCATIONAL & PUBLIC RELATION DEPARTMENT OF BAIT AL ARAB


A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

The Board of Trustees of the Arabian Horse Center, Bait Al Arab Kuwait State Stud has established a Cultural, Educational & PR Department which shall cover a multitude of activities with one aim: promoting the Arabian Horse and knowledge about the Arabian Horse and the culture that created and surrounds it. Bait Al Arab strives to keep in touch with Arabian horse breeders on a national and international level, maintaining a database and a website that is regularly updated to publish the latest news on all Arabian horse related activities at Bait Al Arab and in Kuwait. The quarterly Arabian Horse Letter also reports on the activities of Bait Al Arab and other Kuwaiti breeders, as well as publishing educational articles on the Arabian Horse and its history, health care and stud management.

Throughout the year, Bait Al Arab offers a program of exhibitions, seminars and lectures by international authorities, providing practical education on the history of the Arabian horse, horse management, judging, handling, and veterinary medicine. In addition, stud visit tours, and art and photography contests are offered. Selected national and international shows are sponsored and a fund is maintained for Arabian Horse research. A library, including the Gleannloch collection, is maintained and steadily expanded, including sponsorship and support of new books. The Gleannloch show trophies which have been donated to Bait Al Arab by the Marshall family are displayed in combination with the Gleannloch library.


FUTURE PLANS:

Bait Al Arab is planning to maintain a cooperation program with state studs which are running a breeding program for Straight Egyptian Arabian horses, including El Zahraa, Egypt, and Marbach, Germany, as well as Al Shaqab, Qatar, and the Dirab Arabian Horse Center in Saudi Arabia in matters of culture and education as well as scientific research.

A photo and video archive will be maintained both on the horses of Bait Al Arab and private breeders in Kuwait, other state studs and private studs throughout the world.

The activities at Bait Al Arab are published on the website which is regularly updated. Watch out for the upcoming events which will be announced not only through the website but also through social media like Instagram and Facebook.
