The Straight Egyptian Arabian bases on the heritage of Egyptian rulers. Mohammed Ali (1769 – 1849), Ibrahim Pasha (1789 – 1848) and Abbas Pasha (1813 – 1854) searched for the most exquisite Arabian horses on the Arabian Peninsula and imported them to Egypt.
Especially Abbas Pasha, the grandson of Mohammed Ali, showed a great interest in the origins of his horses. Abbas Pasha gave persons of his trust the task to collect all information about the horses they could find. The results are written down by Ali Gamal Al Din El Shamashirgi Bey and were published in the "Abbas Pasha Manuscript", which was later translated into English by Gülsün Sherif and re-published together with her close friend Judith Forbis.
The royal family of Egypt, among them Ali Pasha Sherif, Khedive Abbas Hilmi, Prince Ahmed Kemal, Prince Mohammed Ali and Prince Kemal El Din, and the English Lady Anne Blunt continued the heritage of the aforementioned rulers.
In the beginning of the 20th century, the royal stud farm named Inshass was globally known among Arabian horse enthusiasts. The Royal Agricultural Society (RAS) – the precursor of Egyptian Agricultural Organization (EAO) – was founded in 1908 and still runs the state stud farm El Zahraa in Cairo.
The Straight Egyptian Arabian horses of nowadays bases on this unique gene pool. It is a remarkable heritage and the breeders of Straight Egyptian Arabians are aware of their responsibility. They have retained a necessary respect in dealing with creation and cultural achievements and preserved the noble Straight Egyptian Arabian horse.
This event is not about prizes or judging, but we would like to give new ideas, new force, and new dimensions. Come and share your passion for Straight Egyptian Arabians with us! Enjoy the moment, enjoy the horses and enjoy each other!
