Has anyone bred to any desert bred arabs? I'd love to see them if you have. Just for fun and my own curiosity! :)

You should got to Egyptian Breeders. There are some people breeding Bahraini horses, and I believe Saudi and Iranian Arabs (Spain & UK) - although from my understanding these Irani horses were exported years ago and Iran isn't doing any business with their horses at this time (shocker). I'll see if I can find their names and get back to you.
Of course, the EAO is still operating with concentrations of athletic desert blood we rarely see here in the states. They don't believe in inbreeding and didn't really use Nazeer until he was about 13 so his influence is minimal over there - with good results.

One of the Saudi Farms has a special page for its desert bred horses which they use for endurance. The horses are big boned and strong, not at all like their show strings. It is quite a contrast to their other horses.

John Rogers imported a couple of DB mares to breed to Serafix, namely Thorrayah and Subaiha. Those lines live on through the get of Meteor and SX Champion. He loved endurance and those lines excelled in racing. Their sons and daughters were some of the foundation stock of modern Arabian racing and crossed really well with the Kontiki lines. I have two mares with those lines, Sheza Champ KU and her sons, Northern Flight and yearling Valorrs Champion. She has produced three winning race babies. The other mare is Kurrera Kon JMF who is by the SX Champion son Kuegar Kon out of a Meteor bred mare. KK is 13 and has no foals. I really like the bloodlines, they are strong horses with great legs and feet. KK is very tall and was started too young so bowed a tendon, but it is healed and she does not have any issues from it. Champ and Northern Flight have cast iron legs and big platter feet, a well developed shoulder and wonderful movement. They won't win "beauty" contests, but they are wonderful athletes and riding horses.

I'm in Syracuse...we're finally getting our fair share of snow today, I put our guys out just long enough to clean stalls and they came back looking like the first picture of your mare! How fuzzy and cute she is!

I love the arabs that aren't "beauty contestants" (although I love the beauty contestants just as much!) I think it's lovely to add a little bone to our Arabs. I have been somewhat disappointed lately, I think some breeders are overdoing the fineness just a little :-/ You know what I mean? I guess I liked the old school Arabians better maybe, I don't know what it is...

You're not alone in that sentiment. There are many people who still want smart, doing horses even if they aren't the prettiest horse in the pasture. I'm gonna see if I can find the pics of the Bahraini and Irani horses. I think you'll be pleasantly surprized.

Nice to see there are others who appreciate more then the exotic.
I have posted pictures many times and I get very few remarks one way or another. LOL

I'm thinking about going to this year's Al Khamsa convention. Would be nice to see 1 or 2 of these horses in the flesh. Thanks for that link.

Great thread! I have "desert bred" Arabians if you count Al Khamsa/Blue List.

Cavalier is 100% Al Khamsa/Asil, Blue List. He's been very consistent with his foals and I absolutely adore my two Cavalier colts.

And he is just lovely! This is exactly what I like. You can keep the Arab look/charisma that has some nice solidness and doesn't look like a china doll (not that I don't like them that way too, I couldn't put an exotic arab and an arab with bone in the same box and decide which one was more beautiful...apples and oranges my friends lol). How refreshing to see such a well balanced boy :)
