We are dedicated to promoting and preserving the authentic Arabian horse. Our horses represent their glorious heritage through their “golden” dispositions, solid structure, correctness of conformation, and athletic abilities.
Our Vision & Ideals
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A DAHABI ARABIAN
Our farm name, Dahabi Arabians, meaning “Golden Arabians” in Arabic, was chosen to reflect our ideals.
Disposition is of prime importance to us – 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!
Another key factor for us is quality of movement – the horse should be supple and balanced, moving freely with an elastic stride demonstrating natural suspension and a cadenced rhythm. Whether best suited for dressage, western pleasure or anywhere in-between, 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 interest.
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.
Past & Present
OUR MOST PRECIOUS JEWELS
While a breeding farm we were known for our stallions, but it was our mares who were truly the stars! Every foal we bred has been a dream come true for us and appreciated for their individual qualities, personality, and attributes. In recent years we have downsized and shifted our focus from breeding to the enjoyment of our beloved Arabians.
“The wind of heaven is that which
blows between a horse's ears.”
