THE OBJECTIVES & BREEDING PHILOSOPHY OF SEVEN OAKS ARABIAN STUD



The Objectives and Breeding Philosophy of Seven Oaks Arabian Stud are clear and simple. They 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, by using Crabbet Related and Straight Egyptian stallions

          over Crabbet Related mares carrying the 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 over-riding 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.
