Some of the bloodlines within the Arabian breed are:

CMK (Crabbet-Maynesboro-Kellogg)
Straight Egyptian
Al Khamsa
Straight Spanish
Pure Polish
Straight Russian
Babson (and Babson/Turfa, Babson/Turfa/Sirecho, Babson/Brown)
Doyle Arabians
Phara Arabians
Sheykh Obeyd
Blue Star and Blue List eligible
Early-American and American Foundation

These are in no particular order and if I forget anything I did not intend to offend :) Defining their types would be hard as each group can have a wide variety of types within it.

Fire N Ice is sired by Gold N Ali that was predominately Crabbet/CMK, his dam was heavily *Bask bred with a touch of Crabbet/CMK.

Black is not that uncommon and there are many breeders that specialize in it. Hughes Arabians and Flying A Ranch Arabians are both known for having quality black Arabians.

Hope this helped a bit!
Yes this helped alot! I would to own a black arabian stallion(Yes, Black Stallion series fan here!). Good to know they aren't that uncommon.

As for temperament, are they different with each bloodline?

What about show jumping? I am thinking of getting into it whenever I get my first horse(Which isn't anytime soon.=(

Which bloodlines are best for it?

What are Arabians like in show jumping?

I read a book about different famous Arabian stallions and one was(well looked to be) all white, but was a very light light grey, unless it was just the photo. The photo was an old one, it was in black and white. Well anyways, I can't remember his exact name, but I think it had the word Prince(I think) in it. I will check the book out at my library and see if I can find it.But apparently he was a famous Arabian stallion. I think it said he was an Egyptian? He is nice looking. I don't know if anyone has a clue who I may be talking about.lol

Everyone please keep the information coming!

Thanks to all you guys! There are a vast variety of lines that breeders/riders/trail riders/endurance/racing/Dressage/Jumping enthusiast utilize. The Arabian is known for its versatility and therefore for me, by incorporating some of the lines used in the past into one horse I was able to capitalize on the versatility!

I like the idea of having Esquire+ kids out there doing Dressage, Jumping, Western Pleasure, one gearing up for an Endurance career, and more. Because of his pedigree and the consistency he has to sire it, his kids can do A LOT! Not just one thing and do it well!

This is his Western Pleasure son Evan Almighty who was the 2009 Sport Horse Nationals Reserve Champion 2 YRO Colt

This is one of his Dressage kids at his first 'A' Rated Arabian show where he won all his under saddle classes entered.

This is one of his jumper kids that we bred that was the 2009 Sport Horse Nationals Reserve Champion 2 YRO Gelding

Although not pictured under saddle in this photo, another one of Esquire+'s Dressage kids. She is a full sibling to the above Gelding and we have the mare back in foal to Esquire+ for a 2012 foal.

This filly, although a PB Arabian is straight up OPEN Hunter material. She IS the real deal....

Showing WINNING the East Coast Championship ATH Sport Horse Mare Class 2011

And her full brother Hy Wynds, aka 'Storm' , who is a Dressage type, was the East Coast Reserve Champion Sport Horse Stallion 2011

Shown sporting his Ribbon :)

Please keep in mind that all of the Esquire+ kids are out of mares that have pedigrees that are all different from the other(s). Even their phenotype (what you see) is different.

So in researching the lines it is important to pay particular attention to which lines are known for particular traits and do they sire/produce it consistently. Especially if looking at a young prospect as it will give you a window as to what you can expect, of course dependant on the horse standing in front of you.

I will try to add photos of these Esquire+ kids dam to provide a complete visual as right now you only have half of the equation :) And provide pedigree information as well.

Hope this post has been somewhat helpful

Black isn't all that uncommon in Arabians, I have a pasture full of blacks and I don't even specialize in them!

Black Stallion, Western Pleasure
Afterdark H by Pyro Thyme SA X JJ Night Love (Magnum Psyche daughter) Pyro is bay and Night Love is black, Afterdark is black.

I consider Dark to be domestic breeding, he's a cross of Spanish, Russian and Polish.

This is my Western Pleasure gelding, Desperado Moon who is predominantly Varian (domestic) breeding. He is by Sundance Kid V X Beyberryeloquence (Hucklebey Berry daughter out of a Well Chosen daughter). Sheila Varian's breeding started out as primarily Polish.

This is my stallion SVS Il Divo, again domestic breeding but heavily Russian with Polish and Spanish.

SVS Il Divo by SVS Fornaio (Khadraj NA) X Patrice C (*Padron), shows Main Ring Halter, Most Classic Head, Sport Horse in Hand, Hunter Pleasure and is now in training to show Western Pleasure. He's also ridden out on trail. Primarily Russian, he's got the size and substance from the Russians & Poles, and the beauty from his tail female line, the golden cross of Polish and Spanish. He is Saqlawi al Abd in strain.

When I say 'domestic' I mean that I'm crossing various other types to create something that is uniquely US bred. When you look at a lot of the Russian pedigrees, you see a lot of names that make you say, "Wait, I thought that horse was Polish.". In those pedigrees what determines whether a horse is Russian or Polish, is where the horse was born. So if born at Tersk Stud in Russia, even if bred with 2 Polish horses, the horse is Russian. If the foal is born in Poland, even if they use an outcross sire like Marwan Al Shaqab, the foal is Polish. Several American breeders specialize in breeding 'straights', i.e. Polish or Russian and they'll say that their horse is Pure Polish or Pure Russian. Even though born in this country, it's American. Domestic breeders tend to use the best from all the different types. I like Russian and Polish for size & substance and LOVE Spanish for huge eyes and sweet tempers, so I tend to like those crosses in my horses. If I see that I need a more refined or exotic head I might even throw in some Egyptian blood, as those horses tend to be very exotic looking, but frequently are much lighter boned than I like.

Some breeders like the Crabbet look (from Lady Ann Wentworth of Crabbet Stud, England) and frequently called CMK (Crabbet, Maynord, Kellogg) for the partners here in the US who bred using horses imported from her stud and because of their way of crossing, created a rather unique look.

Bazy Tankersly in AZ, owns Al-Marah Arabians and she has created a very distinctive looking horse that is very athletic. Sheila Varian of Varian Arabians has her look (by the way, the way I decided what kind of Arabian I preferred was to look through the Arabian Horse World & Arabian Horse Times at ALL the pics and ads to see which ones I kept coming back to and in a lot of cases they were Varian bred if not Varian horses) and specializes in a very typey, athletic performance horse. I've visited both farms and studied their methods of crossing pedigrees and now try to breed a really good looking athletic Arabian.

Thanks for your compliments!
