Solomon picture taken in 2010 by Jenny Krieg. I love how much we know about his sire line, which dives deep into Arabian and Bahraini history. He is 28 years old this year.

  1. From Volume 1 of the Bahraini studbook, 1980: Shaikh Mohammed’s breeding policy has been a continuation of old tradition. The stock consists of mares of the oldest strains inherited from his father Shaikh Sulman, and a Hamdanieh mare acquired in 1962 from Saudi Arabia. Stallions used stood at stud at the Bahrain Royal Stud, with one exception – Hamdany Riadh. Hamdany Riadh was presented to Shaikh Mohammed in 1964 by the Amir of Riadh, Sulman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud.

  2. Hamdanny Riadh is apparently the horse mentioned here:

    This strain is represented in the Amiri Stud by 3 different lines of Saqlawieh XXXX, XXXX and Saqlawieh Riadh […] Saqlawieh Riadh was bred in Saudi Arabia by Emir Bender bin Sultan Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, who specialised in this particular strain. Saqlawieh, together with her own sire, was presented to HH Shaikh Isa in 1964 from the Amir of Riadh, Sulman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud.

  3. All three of the horses pictured have exemplary hindquarters, something new could use more of here in the west.
