Few American horse shows attract the extraordinary international attention of the Egyptian Event. Held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky each year during the first week in June, the Event is a totally unique Arabian horse show. Created by the Pyramid Society in 1981, the 6-day show includes seminars, clinics, parties, auctions and splendid competition between some of the world’s most beautiful straight and related Egyptian Arabian horses.
“The Egyptian Event is a unique experience because it really is an ‘Event’, not simply a horse show,” says Scott Trees. “The activities that fill the week are so imaginative and diverse. There are speakers, educational forums, stallion presentations, book signings, barn parties, a Gala Dinner, an art auction, and everywhere you look, the beautiful Egyptian Arabian horse. The sense of camaraderie and the relaxed, pleasurable atmosphere is utterly refreshing.”
Trees’ short film captures the unique quality of enjoyment that has permeated the show and brought breeders and exhibitors back to the Egyptian Event for 32 years. Through the magic of Scott Trees’ camera and conversations, the viewer discovers a spontaneous smile and a share in the moments, the color and the excitement that are the heart and essence of the Event.
World renowned photographer and film maker Scott Trees has worn many “hats” in the Arabian horse industry over the decades. His vision is unique and encompasses multi-colored impressions, ideas and concepts. Some of the conversations during his interviews are older and wiser. Others are younger impressions, filled with discovery and excitement. All these voices reflect Tree’s creativity, attention to detail, and his experienced artist’s eye for horses, beauty and the people who follow them.
“After several years of focus on the Middle East and book publications, noted Arabian horse photographer and videographer Scott Trees is back in the United States and making us once again aware of his presence is a very big way.”
