Arabian Breeders World Cup 2009
The third annual Arabian Breeders World Cup event was held at the South Point venue in Las Vegas in April 2009. This prestigious event, organised by the Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance, attracted strong international attention this year and is establishing itself as one of the world's premier events for the breed. Uppermost supplied and engraved the awards trophies for the inaugural World Cup in April 2007, and was honoured to once again provide the trophies for the 2009 event.

One of the highlights of the four-day event was the competition for the Arabian Breeder's World Cup itself. This perpetual trophy is sponsored by the Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance. It is awarded annually to the breeder who achieves the greatest success with horses shown at that year's Arabian Breeders World Cup show. The winning breeder receives a replica of the Arabian Breeders Trophy, a companion award and also has the honour of their name and year of achievement engraved on the perpetual trophy. The perpetual trophy is displayed at all major events where the Arabian Horse Breeders Association has a presence, including the annual Arabian Breeders World Cup in Las Vegas, the Scottsdale All Arabian Horse Show and the U.S. National Show. The original perpetual trophy was created and engraved by Uppermost for the inaugural World Cup event in 2007.

About the Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance
The Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance seeks to unite breeders in an effort to enhance their experience with Arabian horses, encourage Arabian horse ownership among others, and generate positive growth and appreciation of the Arabian breed through education, judicious competition, and selective promotion and publicity. Furthermore, the Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance seeks to become a worldwide community of breeders united in their dedication to the Arabian breed as well as thoughtful guardianship of these unique horses for future generations to come.
The Arabian Breeders World Cup first show took place during April 2007. The goal of this event is to become one of the premier purebred Arabian horse shows in the world. With Las Vegas as the backdrop, the event will truly be an “International horse show” that will unite breeders worldwide. It will be a showcase for the natural beauty, nobility, excitement and unique characteristics of the Arabian horse breed and will provide a lively and entertaining experience for existing breeders and those new to Arabian horses.
