Like the Asil Club, Al Khamsa aims at preserving and promoting the asil Arabian horse stock. This extraordinary reference work contains comprehensive ancestral and pedigree information of horses identified as Al Khamsa Arabians. It includes an alphabetical Pedigree Index of those Al Khamsa Arabians in North America that have registration numbers from the Arabian Horse Registry of America (AHR).
This 672-page book contains a Time Line of Foundation Horses and Events from 1800 on, Joyce Gregorian Hampshire’s important Welcoming Speech to the 1990 Al Khamsa Convention, glossary, a major anthology of writings of foundation Al Khamsa breeders, the first Ancestral Element groupings, a refinement of the Foundation Horses section, with major sections for Pre-Registration horses in Egyptian breeding, Pedigree and Progeny Indexes and supporter section. Worth having for the hundreds of unusual photos of Al Khamsa Arabians, many now lost to Al Khamsa, from studbooks around the world.
