Center Highlights

  • Al-Marah Equine Center (AMEC) creates and disseminates knowledge and provides outreach to improve the lives of horses and people. 

  • AMEC was a generous gift from Ruth “Bazy” Tankersley to the University of Arizona College of Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences. 

  • This 88-acre facility in the Tanque Verde valley houses an equine breeding and training center that includes a breeding shed, 2 covered arenas, 2 outdoor arenas, 48 stalls, and meeting spaces. 

  • The center breeds, trains, and markets Al-Marah Arabian horses, which trace to Bedouin ancestors and are recognized world-wide for their temperament, athleticism, and beauty.
