This is a classic text for anyone studying Arabian horses or collecting Arabian books. Bazy passed away early in 2013, having bred more than 2,800 registered Arabians. Al-Marah was the oldest privately owned herd of Arabians in the world, founded with Crabbet Arabians like the *Raffles son Indraff.

Since the early 1940’s, Bazy Tankersley and Al Marah Arabians have been a presence in the Arabian Horse community – the horses always recognized for their type, usability, and versatility. Bazy always recognized for her cheerleader role for the breed, for her pioneer spirit, and for her candor as a breeder of Arabian horses. In “…and Ride Away Singing”, the story of Al Marah Arabians helps us to define and enhance the history of the breed in the United States. The narrative is well laced with anecdotes that only a person of nearly 60 years of experience as a breeder could relate.
