Internship 2016 110

2016 MARKETING & PUBLIC RELATIONS INTERNSHIP

Organizational Overview

The Pyramid Society was created in 1969, by a small group of American Arabian horse breeders passionately concerned about preserving and perpetuating the vanishing bloodlines of the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse. Since its founding - while not a breed registry - The Pyramid Society has devoted its efforts to continued education and ongoing activities for its 300+ membership, as well as thousands of outside supporters. It remains one of the most highly-esteemed Arabian breeders' organizations in the world.

The Egyptian Event, sponsored by The Society, is the world's largest showcase of the Egyptian Arabian horse. Now in its 36th year, the 2016 Egyptian Event will take place June 7-11, 2016, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, making it one of the longest running shows held at the park. The Event will feature the finest Egyptian Arabians from five continents, all competing for substantial prize monies and prestigious awards.  The coordination of all Event activities remains the focus of staff’s attention leading up to and following the Event.
