10th Annual Scottsdale New Year Farm Tour

10th Annual Scottsdale New Year Farm Tour

Scottsdale’s most prestigious Arabian horse farms welcomed the public to experience world-renowned Arabian horses during a celebratory New Year event held between 30 December 2016 and 1 January 2017. The three-day tour offered the public a rare opportunity to experience the beauty, history and lifestyle of the Arabian horse up close and personal. This was the 10th running of the ArabHorse Farm Tour, something that has become a must-attend community event.

Nine of the Valley’s most prestigious farms opened their barns to the public including: Culbreth Equine, McDonald Arabians, Rae-Dawn Arabians, Arabian Espressions, Sandspur Ranch, Sahara Scottsdale, Regency Cove and Brookeville Arabians. Stonewall Farm was cancelled due to bad weather.

Over $20,000 was raised for the 6th Annual Benefit Auction for Healing Hearts Animal Rescue & Refuge, a charity that helps help horses in distress, abandoned or abused.

Please enjoy some highlights of the tour, captured by Nancy Pierce Photography.
