What is Al Khamsa, Inc.?

   
   
   
   

Al Khamsa, Inc., founded in 1975, is a not-for-profit organization that is devoted to the preservation of the horse of Bedouin Arabia. Al Khamsa, Inc. draws admirers of such horses together through education and research. The horses of interest to Al Khamsa, Inc. meet two criteria: (1) those horses that Al Khamsa, Inc. reasonably assumes to descend entirely from Bedouin Arabian horses that were bred by the nomadic horse-breeding tribes of the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula and (2) have breeding descendants in North America.

   
   
   
   

Horses that meet the above criteria constitute The Al Khamsa, Inc. Roster. Al Khamsa, Inc. has traditionally called the Roster horses "Al Khamsa Arabians. The term "Al Khamsa Arabian, as used by Al Khamsa, Inc., is not synonymous with or interchangeable with any term or designation used by any other organization or entity.

   
   
   
   
   

The Roster includes breeding horses in North America and their ancestors. It begins with Foundation Horses (175 as of 2004) and lists all descendants from them with bloodlines still breeding in North America. Foundation Horses are the earliest horses that meet the criteria.

   
   
   
   

The Roster changes constantly. Such factors as exports, imports, geldings, deaths, eligible progeny and registration authorities affect The Al Khamsa, Inc. Roster.

   
   
   
   
   

For definitive information about Al Khamsa, Inc. and Al Khamsa Arabians, please see the website www.alkhamsa.org.

   
   
   
   
   
 
   
 
   

   
 
 
 
 
 

The Al Khamsa Legend - The 5

   
   
 

"Al Khamsa" is an Arabic term that is applied to specific Bedouin bloodlines of the Arabian horse. It roughly translates to "the five."

 

The legend of Al Khamsa refers to the five favorite horses of the prophet Muhammad. According to this legend, Mohammed denied his mares water for three days as a test of endurance and stamina. He then released the mares to run to an oasis and quench their thirst. As a test of loyalty, the mares were called back by the sound of the battle horn before reaching the water. Of the hundreds of mares charging forward, only five stopped and returned to Mohammed. These became known as "the five". Each of these brave and loyal mares was given a strain name -- Kehilan, Seglawi, Abeyan, Hamdani and Hadban -- and was carefully bred, creating the foundation of the Arabian Horse's Bedouin bloodlines. Arabian horses that can trace all of their bloodlines to these Bedouin strains are collectively known as "Al Khamsa Arabians". (Our own TDR White Stone as well as Ravenwood Royalty, carry the proud title and heritage of being a pure Al Khamsa Arabian.)  TDR White Stone is the only Champion black, homozygous black, Straight Egyptian, Al Khamsa, Blue List reining horse in the world.

 

Another version says the legend of Al Khamsa refers to the five horses of the Syrian historian "Mohamed El Kalabi" book entitled "Origins of Horses." According to this legend, in year 3000 BC the famous "Maareb" dam located in Yemen was damaged and all Arabian horses ran away and disappeared in the Arabian desert. A few years later a discovery group from Yemen was sent to find horses in the Arabian desert "Najd". The search group was formed of 5 men and they spent one month in the Arabian desert looking for the horses. Finally they saw 5 of them coming to small well to drink water. When the horses saw the men they ran away. So the search group made a plan to capture the horses. The plan was to make a small piece of wall around the well. The wall gradually started to surround the well until there was only one block left to close the well. When horses went in to drink water, the search group closed the hole and captured them. On their way back to Yemen, the search group ran out of food and they started starving so they decided to slaughter one horse and eat it. To decide which horse to kill they suggested to make a race and the loser will be used for food for the search team. They made the race and one horse lost, but the owner of this horse did not accept the result of the race and asked to re do the race. So they made the race again, but this time another horse lost. Again the owner did not like to the result and asked to re do the race. They made the race for the 3rd time and a different horse lost... so they kept making the races until they found a deer and hunted it and they were saved as well as the 5 horses. The 5 horses were named as follows: 1. Kehailan: In Arabic language it means the eye with black circle around it. This type of horses has black circle around their eyes. 2. Seqlawi: In Arabic language it means refining. These type of horses refines the ground with their hooves. 3. Maanagi: In Arabic language it means long neck. This horse had a long neck. 4. Abbeyan: The name is derived from "Abaa" meaning a mantle. While racing, the owner of the horse had a mantle around him and it fall off, these type of horses left their tails up while running, so the "Abaa" mantle got stuck with the horse's tail until the end of the race, and the search group decided to call it "Abeeyan" or "Obbeyan" meaning the horse who left his tail up while running strong enough to hold a mantle all the way with such high speed. 5. Showaimah: In Arabic language it means birthmark. This horse type had a long white birthmark on his head starts between the eyes all the way to the nose. So this type was called "Showaimah".

 

Later on new horse types were introduced but in origin they all go back to the above 5 types. The new Arabic horse types are:  "Hamdani" because who kept this type was during the "Hamdani" ruling of Aleppo, although they were truly "Kehailan".  "Hedban" meaning black, also generated from Kehailan with very dark black. The Arabs had four colors for their horses: Hedban (Black), Blue (grey), Brown (bay) and Red (chestnut).

 

The term "Al Khamsa" signified purity of bloodlines to the Bedouin, as it does today to supporters of Al Khamsa.

 

A horse which now carries the very honorable title as being an Al Khamsa Arabian must trace in every line of their pedigree to the original 5 strains (mare families). There is only a tiny percentage of Arabians who are able to claim and prove themselves pure enough to be called Al Khamsa Arabians.

 

We are proud to have several rare Al Khamsa Straight Egyptian Arabians. Our stallions TDR White Stone and TDR Reflection Stone and mare TDR Zuri Tsarina carry the proud title and heritage of being a pure Al Khamsa Arabian.

Straight Egyptian Arabian:
   
 

To qualify as a Straight Egyptian, as defined by The Pyramid Society, a horse must trace in every line of its pedigree to a horse which falls into the following categories:

   
     
   

A. Registered or eligible by pedigree for registration by the Arabian Horse Registry of America; and
B. Traces in every line of its pedigree to horses born in Arabia Deserta; and
C. Traces in every line of its pedigree to a horse which falls within one or more of the following categories of horses:

   
   
   
  1. owned or bred by Abbas Pasha I or Ali Pasha Sherif

  2. used to create and maintain the Royal Agricultural Society (RAS)/Egyptian Agricultural Organization (EAO) breeding programs, with the exclusion of Registan and Sharkasi and their lineal descendants

  3. a horse which was a lineal ancestor of a horse described in (A) or (B) above; and

  4. other than those excluded above, who was conceived and born in a private stud program in Egypt and imported directly to the United States and registered by the Arabian Horse Registry of America prior to the extension of the EAO's supervision to private Egyptian stud programs as reflected in Volume IV of the EAO's Stud book.

 
 
   
   
   
   
   
   
 
 
Egyptian Bred:
   
   
Also known as Egyptian-Related horse, as defined by The Pyramid Society, is:

What is the Blue List?

   
   

In 1952, Miss Jane Llewellyn Ott began a list of the horses proven in every line to trace directly to the Bedouin bred horses of the desert. In 1961 the "Blue Arabian Horse Catalog" was published. This is the "Blue Catalog."  Miss Ott continued this catalog until the early 70's, when she closed her research.  The organization known as Al Khamsa was born to continue her work. There are some variations as Al Khamsa accepts some horses not listed in the "Blue Catalog".  All these horses trace directly, in every line, to horses from Bedouin Tribes, or to exceptional individuals, such as Abbas Pasha and Lady Ann Blunt, who only purchased horses from these sources. The terms, "Blue List" and "Al Khamsa" indicate that this horse is believed pure by these meticulous organizations. The term Asil, meaning purebred, is a German based organization with the same goals.
