The Crabbet Organisation
Lady Anne and Wilfrid Scawen Blunt imported Arabian horses direct from the desert to their Crabbet Stud in Sussex in the 1870s. Other early importers used their bloodlines to maintain the original characteristics of the beautiful and tough Bedouin war horse.
Today The Crabbet Organisation protects and promotes the heritage of these wonderful horses. We publish two magazines a year and support events and awards for traditional ridden Arabians.
If you would like to support us in the work we do you can become a member of The Crabbet Organisation.
Today Arabians descended from the breeding at the Crabbet Stud and other early English programmes, such as Hanstead, Courthouse and Barton Lodge, are still top performance Arabians and sane family friends. They are the true Bedouin tent Arabian.
They have become very rare with the development of extreme in hand showing. Many Arabians are not practical ridden horses but these gems still are.
Many Crabbet Arabians are ridden and compete in a wide range of equestrian disciplines.
