SYNONYMOUS WITH QUALITY AND INTEGRITY, THE SUCCESS STORY OF AL ABBASIYAH . . .
The development of a select herd of Asil, Straight Egyptian horses is an undertaking that requires the utmost in commitment and effort from very knowledgeable and talented people. Everyone at Al Abbasiyah is dedicated to perpetuating this unique Asil Bedouin Arabian horse through a superbly managed breeding programme.
Al Abbasiyah's many Straight Egyptian Arabian horses of Asil bloodlines may be seen at the farm located just outside of Sierra Vista, Arizona.
The foundation mares of Al Abbasiyah include the prominent broodmare dam lines such as the EAO bred, Bukra, Bint Maisa El Saghira through the Bahraini mare Bint El Bahreyn, Malaka through Nazeera, Farida through Deena, and the Kuhaylah Kurush line of Shahbaa.
Al Abbasiyah stallions are from the rare sire line of Gamil El Khebir, through Anter and the sire line of Saklawi I through Nazeer.
DEDICATED TO THE ART OF CREATING THE IDEAL ARABIAN HORSE...
The breeding philosophy and goals of Al Abbasiyah are best described in the words of Albert W. Harris in his book, THE BLOOD OF THE ARAB: The World's Greatest War Horse (privately printed, Chicago, 1941, pg. 176)
"Man has been unable to breed a better horse and has always had to resort to the blood of the Arab, the world's greatest war horse, for permanent improvement in any specialized line of breeding. The blood of the Arab might be considered as the tungsten ingredient of tool steel, which is the hardest of all steel. Manufacturers have to keep a supply on hand because without it the finest and hardiest of tools cannot be made. That parenthetically is the reason for preserving in its purity the blood of this horse. Those who are fortunate in possessing it have also the obligation to preserve it in its purity, as without it the finest and hardiest of horses cannot be made."
Al Abbasiyah in keeping with this philosophy is applying the ancient Bedouin ideals and methods to achieve the goal of breeding the classic, yet typically Asil Bedouin Arabian horse. This specific type of horse is one which has lived among the Bedouin people for hundreds of years.
