Straight Egyptian Arabian Horses
A European Arabian Horse Legacy
The purebred Arabian horse is world-renowned for its legendary beauty, and for its performance as a riding horse. Perhaps no other type of Arabian is more revered for beauty than the Pyramid Society Straight Egyptian, and no other country was more demanding of its stallions than Germany.
The Desert-bred Arabian horse was prized by royal armies for hundreds of years as a superior mount on the battlefield. To ensure the nation's cavalry was mounted on the best riding horses possible, the finest Arabian stallions were brought from Arabia's deserts and selected to improve native European herds.
Eventually, this became a formal, highly respected three-day test, where potential stallion candidates from all European breeds were presented each year for the prestigious German performance testing. Those stallions scoring high enough would be awarded a license to stand at public stud.
The impeccably bred German-born straight Egyptian stallion *Bakil, (Kaysoon by Nazeer x Om El Arab,) not only won the German stallion licensing of his year, but he also beat all the other breeds presented for the annual stallion licensing.
His scores set the standard, even after he was exported to the United States. This extraordinary athlete subsequently became a winning racehorse competing against the most successful racing bloodlines in America. *Bakil remains the only German licensing champion to later win on the American racetrack.
Today, the straight Egyptian descendants of *Bakil are treasured for their extraordinary talent, soundness, work ethic, and European "sport horse" quality. They offer an outstanding outcross for today's "show ring" straight Egyptian bloodlines, while their Arabian type remains true to the legend of the Pyramid Society Straight Egyptian Arabian.
