About Us . . .

Spirit Arabians was founded in 1996 with the idea of breeding high percentage Crabbet and Old English horses influenced by the purchase of Silvern Spirit from Jean and David Peck of Paslow Hall Arabians. He was born in 1996 but lost in a tragic road traffic accident in 1999 leaving just one foal - Ibn Spirit (x Shadowed Gold). After the loss of Silvern Spirit, Crystal Magic was bought from Anne Brown at Gadebrook Stud to carry on the Crabbet and Old English lines. Silvern Spirit will never be forgotten and the stud was founded in his name.

Since then a few changes have been made to the breeding programme but it is still based around the original idea of using Crabbet and Old English lines to produce horses that are beautiful to look at but can also perform in any discipline. Our youngstock are mainly in endurance homes but we have recently exported horses to dressage homes in Germany.

It is hoped that the Crabbet and Old English influence mixed with the best of Polish, Russian, Spanish, Egyptian and American bloodlines continue to produce what Spirit Arabians set out to achieve.

We currently stand four stallions at stud from 67.96% Crabbet to 100% Crabbet bloodlines. Although Marbon Masadi has now been sold to Esther Neitzert in Germany, he is still available by AI in the UK via Spirit Arabians. We are introducing two new colts to the stud. Muzicman (Vervencio x Muzicarla), 50%+ Crabbet/Old English and Silver Zarkah (Lutfi Pasha x Zahlinas Glimmer), 99%+ Crabbet/100% Old English.

We are continually introducing new horses to our stud which further increases the gene pool making us one of the only studs in the UK with such a broad spectrum of bloodlines. We have horses of 100% Crabbet, 100% Old English, 75%+ Crabbet and Crabbet related horses all in one place.

We occasionally have youngstock for sale and we offer concessions for mares of high percentage and 100% Crabbet and Old English bloodlines.
