The Roster is an index of those Al Khamsa Arabians, past and present, as well as their ancestors abroad.

An Al Khamsa Arabian is any Arabian horse that traces in every line of its pedigree to Al Khamsa, Inc.'s Foundation Horses and is either in North America or was in North America at the time it was entered into our Roster database, or has descendants in North America. In other words, any horse in North America, or with descent in North America, which Al Khamsa, Inc. believes to descend entirely from Arabian horses bred by the nomadic Bedouin horse-breeding tribes of the Arabian Peninsula is an Al Khamsa Arabian.

We endeavor to record all Al Khamsa Arabians, past and present, and their ancestors abroad. All are listed in the Roster. However, any horse with a listed sire and dam or with all grandparents listed can reasonably be assumed to be Al Khamsa Arabian. Questions about the Al Khamsa Arabian status of any horse can be sent via our contact us form.

The Online Roster

The Online Roster, formatted for use mobile device or by your computer's web browser, has three indexes in addition to a Horse Name search and a Breeder Name search. 

  1. All Horses, where horses are indexed alphabetically by name. An alphabetical index is shown above the horse names so you can select a group of horses by the beginning letter of the names.
  2. Breeder which shows breeder names and the number of horses bred by that breeder.  Click on a breeder name to see the names of thefff  horses bred by the breeder selected.
  3. Registry which shows the number of horses by the registry they were registered under upon entry into our Roster database.  Click on a Registry name abbreviation to see the names of the horses associated with that Registry.

The top portion of each pedigree page contains a horse's basic information: its name, year of birth, color, gender, registration number or reference, breeder, tail-male, tail-female, ancestral elements and, where applicable, its informational text. Below the basic information is a five-generation pedigree for this horse.

The pedigree is followed by three generations of descendants that looks as follows:

AL Khamsa Descendants 3 Generations

Additionally, the number of fourth generation descendants is indicated in square brackets after third generation. The above example shows FREE REIN'S CALL ME CASANOVA does not yet have registered descendants so his number is 0.

Summarized descendant statistics, and, where applicable, linked footnotes for horses in the pedigree which have significant information effecting the pedigree are at the bottom of the page. Each horse in a pedigree or in a descendant tree is linked to its own pedigree page. For example, a click on a grandsire will take you to his page; a click on a descendant to view its page.
