Alfat, desert-bred Ubayyan al-Suyayfi stallion from Saudi Arabia

Here is another photo from our trip to Saudi Arabia, with the Asil Club delegation. This one was taken at the Najd Stud of Prince Turki Bin Fahd Bin Abdullah Al Saud near al-Kharj. This was the highlight of our trip. There are about 300 asil DB horses in that stud, as well as some Egyptians of the Dahman Shahwan line.

We saw very nice stallions that could have stepped out of the historic photographs of the Blunts and others. Below is the bay stallion Alfat, 12 years, by Al Beshir out of Al-Sayeda, from the strain of ‘Ubayyan al-Suyayfi.

  1. He may not be faultless but there is something that I really like about this horse:)

  2. Se what a fabulous hindend he has. The thigh muscling carries well down into the top of the gaskin. He is reminiscent of the Kuhailan 1 line horse Arax who was so helpful in improving the structure of the Russian Tersk breds.
    Best wishes
