Dear Friends, It is with great excitement that we present our first U.S. National Arabian Horse Yearbook! I have been photographing Arabian horses for over 25 years and I had the honor of being the official photographer of the U.S. Nationals for 15 years. Over that time, I have seen some of the greatest Arabian and halfArabian horses in the breed, and I have had the thrill of capturing many amazing moments and preserving them for our community. I hope you enjoy this photographic momento of just some of the special horses and people who participated at the 2011 U.S. Nationals; all photos are unretouched. This yearbook features many national champions, but I believe that each of us who has the opportunity to share our lives with an Arabian horse is a winner! Enjoy! Mike Ferrara
