Our farm name, Dahabi Arabians, meaning “Golden Arabians” in Arabic, was chosen to reflect our ideals — our horses are “golden” in conformation, disposition, athletic ability, and pedigree. 

Quality of movement is of prime importance to us – the horse should be supple and balanced, moving freely with an elastic stride demonstrating natural suspension and a cadenced rhythm. Our horses are schooled first in-hand and then under saddle – with each horse receiving individual attention and a personalized training plan suitable to that particular horse’s aptitudes and current level of training.

Another key factor for us is disposition – we want a horse with an eager-to-please attitude, good work ethic and an overall willingness to learn. These traits are common with most Arabian horses . . . just another reason we choose to share our lives with this breed. As our horses are treasured family members and trusted companions, they are always treated with love, compassion, and our utmost respect. When we walk outside our horses nicker and run to meet us at the gate – they are as happy to see us as we are to see them!

While we used to breed several foals a year, our primary focus now is on enjoyment of our horses. Thus, we will only breed and / or have foals available on rare occasion. Our mare Exquisite Majik will be offered for on-site breeding lease from time-to-time.
