Fun Fact Friday

The Arabian horse, worldwide, has greatly benefitted from the relatively small percentage of Straight Egyptian bloodlines that have been infused throughout the general Arabian horse population down through the ages of time, but especially since the late 19th Century. In this series we will feature some of the more prominent mares and stallions who were influenced by Straight Egyptian bloodlines. As noted in the very first volume of The Reference Handbook of Straight Egyptian Horses: “[we] do not infer that Arabian horses of Egyptian bloodlines are better than horses of other bloodlines. [We] do feel, however, that Egyptian blood is a proven source of highly desirable characteristics.” It is our hope to highlight some interesting facts that may serve to help newcomers as well as seasoned breeders and enthusiasts to see the longstanding and lasting role the Egyptian Arabian has played in the development of the Arabian breed at large.
