THE OBJECTIVES & BREEDING PHILOSOPHY OF SEVEN OAKS ARABIAN STUD



Seven Oaks Arabian Stud Breeding Objectives are :

  • To breed Straight Egyptian horses based on the bloodlines and breeding philosophy of Dr. Hans Nagel’s Katharinenhof Stud in Germany.
  • This philosophy is not to improve the breed, but to “re-create” the breed back to its original classic type and extreme beauty which evolved over centuries in the Nejd region of Saudi Arabia.
  • To breed outstanding and beautiful riding horses, with courage and stamina by using Crabbet Related and Straight Egyptian stallions over Crabbet Related mares. These bloodlines based on the brilliant movement of the horses of the Ralvon Pilgrim line.

 

In breeding each of the above different types of Arabian horse, the criteria of Seven Oaks Arabian Stud will be:

TYPE and TEMPERAMENT

Correct conformation is important, but our primary focus will be on striving to breed horses with unmistakable Arabian type, having a small, wedge shaped and dished head, with large, dark and round eyes, high set tail carried proudly like a flag, and brilliant movement.

Equally important to us is that these horses must be proud yet gentle, capable of exuberant excitement, yet still docile, well behaved and obedient, and definitely, people loving, intelligent and affectionate animals.
