Collector alert: new arabian book released


The new book published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Brazilian Association of Arabian Horse Breeders (ABCCA) says the first of the breed may have arrived in the South American country as early as 1860.

In O Cavalo Árabe no Brasil (The Arabian horse in Brazil), author Mario Braga says the earliest documentation of the arabian’s arrival in Brazil date from 1860, but there is little information regarding importation and use from that time.

The first official Arabian horse breeder was Guilherme Echenique Filho, who imported seven specimens in the 1920s from a stud farm in Argentina to Brazil’s Rio Grande do Sul state.

O Cavalo Árabe no Brasil features photos Marco Terranova.

It is available from Amazon or the ABCCA, for about $US44.
