ABHAA ARABIANSAl Wafrah (Kuwait)
|Owner||Ahmad Abdulaziz Al Babtain|
|Handler||Paolo Capecci, Rhodri Jones|
|Bloodline||Mixed Blood Straight Egyptian|
While much of Kuwait and its neighbouring countries are covered in desert sands, the city of Wafra, nestled in the far south against the Saudi Arabian border, is surrounded by fertile soil and lush farmland. Underground lakes provide the water source for growing produce and nourishing the pastureland for horses and other livestock. It was the perfect location for Ahmad Abdulaziz Al Babtain to pursue his lifelong dream of raising Arabian Horses and he founded Abhaa Arabians in 2012.
The name of the farm is an homage to the Straight Egyptian breeding farm of the same name. Located in Saudi Arabia, it was established by Al Babtain's close cousin and very good friend, Saud Al Babtain in 2006. It was an easy choice to keep the name in the family, especially because Ahmad Al Babtain's motivation to have horses in the first place came from his father. He explains, "In my childhood, my father bought for me an Arabian horse - then it became a passion! So, when I finished my studies, I started to live my passion by founding Abhaa Arabians. I started with the horses that had Straight Egyptian bloodlines close up in the pedigrees, but after two years, I changed my mind to use all Straight Egyptian lines".
The breeding philosophy of the farm is to find solid, good-bodied mares with excellent pedigrees, then add refinement and other qualities by focusing on the pedigree match with correct stallions. Al Babtain's vision is to continue to breed toward the ideal Arabian horse. There are over 25 horses in the Abhaa herd, each one of them are specially selected to support Al Babtain's vision without restricting a variety of Straight Egyptian bloodlines.
One broodmare that stands out among the foundation mares is Bint Farid Nile Moon (Farid Nile Moon x Bint Farid, by Anaza El Farid). She is not only the dam of 2016 Czech National Champion Stallion, DHS Tahrir, she is also the dam of one of Ahmad Al Babtain's finest homebred fillies, 2017 Straight Egyptian Gold World Champion Junior Filly, AB Faridah.
Ahmad Al Babtain continues to build towards his vision of the ideal Arabian. "I have just added a stallion, Ibn Farida Sakr, a beautiful Tallahsman son out of Farida Sakr", Al Babtain explains. He plans to use the horse on his own mares, as well as offering him at stud to the public.
If all goes according to plan, this will be the next successful chapter in the story of Abhaa Arabians, Kuwait.
