It is with mixed feelings that I write this letter. It is my understanding that the Arabian Horse Association has agreed to accept all horses included in the World Arabian Horse studbooks without any exceptions and therefore, in accordance with WAHO's request, the Purebred Arabian Horse Registry will close the registry effective December 31, 2007.

I will transfer necessary documents to AHA or return them to the owners/breeders depending upon the situation. I wish you all the best of luck and would like to thank you for all of the support you have given PAHR, Bob Harvey and myself these past ten years.
