Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 1926 ~ 2022
On behalf of the council and members of the Arab Horse Society of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to express our condolences to His Majesty and the Royal Family on the death of Queen Elizabeth II. The late Queen was selfless in working for this nation and for the commonwealth by whom she was loved around the world. She had many challenging and difficult situations to deal with which she did so gracefully. We are so grateful for her 70 years of devotion to us all whilst still maintaining time to be with her family. Her passion and love of horses and the countryside was second to none and her gift as a breeder of thoroughbreds in particular as well as other native breeds. Her expertise did not come without huge knowledge and ability to retain so much information. Her love of riding, even seen this year, has been passed down through the family. The presentation of 1000 people and 500 horses at Windsor in the summer was memorable and included her two Arabian Stallions received as gifts from His Majesty the King of Bahrain. She will remain the Greatest and Longest Reigning Monarch in History and will always be fondly remembered. We wish His Majesty well in his new role and are grateful for the continuity that he has been quick to put in place.
Chairman of the Arab Horse Society Council.

It is good news that the UK has been given Third Country
status by the EU as far as all its Defra recognized equine studbooks are concerned. This means that all
pedigree horses and ponies with passports issued by these Studbooks will be
treated as 'registered' horses and ponies by all EU member states and can
continue to be exported for both breeding and competition or training purposes
in the normal way. Breeding products (semen, embryos, oozotes, zygoted etc) from
such registered equines are also included in this recognition and can therefore
continue to be traded in the normal way, subject to the usual veterinary
