There are a number of “modern” Arabian stud farms in Bahrain today, some of which participate in international shows. Their horses are imported, often straight Egyptians. One such farm, that will be on the WAHO stud tour, is Al Rashediah Stud, owned by Abdulrahman Al Jassmi. Mr. Al Jassmi inherited his love for Arabians from his father and grandfather. He has some show horses in Europe, but most of his 65 horses are in Bahrain. At a sunset presentation, he showed a group of impossibly lovely mares, several of them representing Hans Nagel breeding. And then came his stallion, the magnificent Jamil Al Rayyan (Ansata Hejazi x Dana Al Rayyan), whose silver coat looked golden in the last rays of the setting sun.
