We owe this renewed interest to the heavy involvement of the Gulf countries. They created a new dynamic in the breeding of purebred Arabian horses they also support thanks to a significant financial investment.
The effects of such a policy were soon evident. Thus we could witness the emergence of new breedings of unprecedented dimension and the development of all the technological aspects concerning the world of purebred Arabians, whose use focuses mainly on racing, showing and endurance riding.
That also allows the professionalization of the industry which saw new professions and specializations appear, including a rise in business. So many aspects to be taken into account by the breeders who are essential players when any project concerning the Arabian horse is undertaken.
However, there is another side to success like imbalance in many fields such as finances...

Though they play a considerable part within the industry, thanks to their rich genetic heritage, their participation within the international institutions remains limited.
