The Arabian horse is a lifestyle of romance. A lifestyle of passion. A lifestyle of beauty and art that transforms into a universal language. From the sparkling lights of Paris and ancient desert sands of the Middle East to the vigor of Sao Paulo and the beaches of Chantilly, you will be taken on a journey filled with great destinations, enriching your life with the beautiful diversity of a world united around the Arabian horse.
Because at the end of the day, no competition or destination will compare to the transformational moment you’ll have when the whiskers of this ancient breed softly brush your hand, its breath warming your skin, and its ancient, liquid eyes – full of 2,000 years of light and life – meeting yours for the very first time. In that moment, we guarantee you’ll be changed forever.
The Aria Lifestyle represents a lifestyle of passion: the relationships you’ll make, the horses you’ll see, the great destinations that lie ahead for you – and they are only the tip of the iceberg.
In the end, it is the horses themselves – the Aria Collection – that are the greatest of all destinations… a worthy tribute to the Arabian horse.
Welcome to the Aria Experience. It is one like no other.
