The Arabian horse is known for its beauty. But it is also the ultimate riding horse and companion, a horse that for centuries was bred to carry its owner across the desert through extreme weather conditions of heat and cold.

Black Ridge Arabians is breeding Arabian horses descended from those collected in the deserts of Syria and Arabia and purchased from the greatest breeding programs of Egypt in the last century by Lord Byron's granddaughter, Lady Anne Blunt, and her husband, Wilfred Blunt, who was a well-known poet in his day. These Arabian horses are known as "Crabbet" Arabians after the Blunt family estate, Crabbet Park, in England. The Blunts and their daughter, Lady Wentworth, bred for temperament, ridability, correct conformation, and beauty.

Some of our horses are "straight Crabbet" in blood, with all ancestors descended from the Crabbet horses. These are the rarest Arabian bloodlines in the United States. A second blood group is the Old English, or General Stud-Book-eligible Arabians, with all ancestors imported to England before 1920, when the Jockey Club ceased to register new Arabian imported horses. There are only about 200 Arabians of this blood group left in the United States. We also have horses which represent the outcrossing of these bloodlines to horses imported from Egypt and Poland to the United States since 1960.
