The Kentucky Arabian Riders & Breeders Society (KARABS) was established as an Arabian
Horse Association Region 14 affiliate club in 1983. The object and purpose of KARABS is to
aid and encourage the breeding, exhibiting, use and perpetuation of Arabian Horses, to
formulate publicity and educational programs and other activities in the interest of Arabian
horse owners and enthusiasts in the Kentucky area, and to promote and encourage and
stimulate popular interest in the outstanding using qualities of the Arabian horse.
KARABS members come from across the United States but the majority resides in the
Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana region. Most of the clubs
activities take place in the Greater Cincinnati, Ohio area. Those activities include general
membership meetings, the annual awards banquet, and the Animal Psychic event. The club’s
horse show, the Medallion, is a 2-day, 2-Region (13 & 14) qualifying show held in June. This
year a fall trail ride and cookout is planned. Other member benefits include subscriptions to
the Arabian News.
Programs: KARABS offers both a High Point Awards program for those members who show
their horses and a Recreational Rider Program open to all amateurs who just enjoy time spent
riding their horses.
The Medallion: This year the club’s show, The Medallion, will be held at Roberts Arena in
Wilmington, OH on June 8-9, 2013. Sport Horse classes will be held on Saturday, and the
class line up for Sunday will include National Show Horse classes.
