About The Author
Judith E. Forbis first fell in love with Arabian horses after reading The Black Stallion. In 1957, she traveled to Turkey with the International
Cooperation Administration and rode her first Arabian mare and Turkish cavalry horses in jumping championships. She married Donald Forbis and moved to Southeast Turkey, where she raced their Arabian horses. Her challenging adventures as the first woman jockey in the country were chronicled in her book, Hoofbeats Along the Tigris. In 1959, she and her husband founded Ansata Arabian Stud
after importing Egyptian Arabian horses to United States. The Ansata bloodlines are now foundation stock for royal, government, and private farms across the world. In 1969, she cofounded The Pyramid Society, an Egyptian Arabian breed organization.
Forbis is an international judge, lecturer, and consultant and has contributed to breed magazines and books worldwide. She has authored The Classic Arabian Horse and Authentic Arabian Bloodstock Vol. I and II and coauthored The Abbas Pasha Manuscript and The Royal Arabians of Egypt and The Stud of Henry B. Babson. She has received numerous breed honors and, in 2004, was the first woman to receive the prestigious John W. Galbreath Award for outstanding entrepreneurship in the equine industry.
