The ArabHorse Farm Tour extends a special invitation to the public to enjoy four exciting days of Arabian horse industry festivities over an extended New Year's weekend. The tour starts Thursday December 31, 2015 and runs through Sunday January 3, 2016.

"Scottsdale is recognized as the world capital of the Arabian horse," explains Scott Bailey, founder, "and traditionally, some farms in Scottsdale have hosted New Year's Eve parties or open barns." The tour has accelerated since its inception in 2007. There is no admission charge to attend any of the tour events, although participants are encouraged to participate in the raffles and auctions that occur during each event for two local equine charities,Healing Hearts Animal Rescue & Refuge and Last Act of Kindness Foundation. "We encourage people to join the fun and, at the same time, help a very worthy cause," says Bailey.

Those interested in Arabian horses have many opportunities to visit farms, admire and interact the beautiful horses. "This is a great entertainment opportunity for people who have visiting friends and family," explains Bailey. Farms on the tour stageopen barns complete with refreshments or wine tasting along with an informal showing of horses ‒ and a lot of fun and camaraderie.

The Farm Tours expose the Arabian horse and the lifestyle it offers to the general public in a way that is unmatched by any other non competitive equine event. The Farm Tours have become a must attend community event with guest coming from all over the country. Four days of beautiful Arabian horses, exciting presentations and elegant party spreads that are unmatched by any other equine event.

"Each year people are introduced to the Arabian Horse due to the tours. Participating farms annually report stories of visitors whose dreams have come true; some simply due to the hands on, close up interaction offered at the farms while others have blossomed into full participating members of the equine community breeding, showing and owning Arabian horses", say's David Cains, co-founder of the event.
