The Pyramid Society’s Egyptian Event Honors
Gleannloch Farms: The Legend and the Legacy
The Pyramid Society is a worldwide organization founded in 1969 devoted to the preservation and perpetuation of the straight Egyptian Arabian horse. Douglas B. Marshall was one of the Society’s founders, as well as its first president.
The Egyptian Event, an internationally renowned week-long celebration of these magnificent horses, is held by The Pyramid Society in Lexington Kentucky, and boasts halter and performance competitions, expert-led seminars, exciting auctions, a gala fundraiser and much, much more.
The 34th annual Event took as its theme, “Gleannloch Farms: The Legend and the Legacy.” It saluted the immeasurable contributions of Douglas and Margaret Marshall, their unique and influential breeding program, and the unparalleled success of Gleannloch horses under the guidance of Tom and Rhita McNair. Though it is 20 years since Gleannloch Farms passed into history, the impact of the Marshalls and their Gleannloch legacy still resonates today.
This year, all of the Egyptian Event Showcase and Premier Auction items were generously provided by the estate of the Marshalls from their personal collection at Las Palmas, their magnificent Moroccan-inspired ranch in Barksdale, Texas.
The Pyramid Society also published a colorful and detailed tribute book about Gleannloch Farms and their remarkable legacy.
