Although Shahidova Arabians is a small and not well-known entity, I have been raising and breeding fine Arabian horses—with emphasis on Straight Egyptian Arabian horses—since 1982 and I am proud to be a member of the AHA Discovery Farm program.

The farm name literally means "Daughters of Shahid" and is meant as a dedication to the "matriarch" of my program, FALEENA SHAHIDOVA.  Faleena left us in 2002, but this grand, big-hearted old lady will never be forgotten!  She is well represented not only in my program but all over the USA, including Alaska.  Her grandson Shahmis was a Top 5 in the 2003 Half-Arabian Halter Futurity at Region 5.

"Doing what you love is freedom.                   
                     Loving what you do is happiness."

Shahidova Arabians is dedicated to doing its best to preserve the true desert "Al Khamsa" horse and the unique qualities that exist in this endangered group.  In achieving this goal, I use:

    Straight Egyptian Arabian Stallion - Falcontep
    FALCONTEP (Abenhetep x BA Quintessence)
  • Proven Arabian stallions with impeccable, champion pedigrees containing horses selected over years of careful breeding.
  • Arabian mares that consistently produce balanced, correct and quality foals with the beauty and temperament truly worthy of the ideals for which Al Khamsa and the Arabian horse stands.

For many years I have owned or leased some wonderful Arabian stallions and mares, but in 1999 I was offered the chance to purchase the remaining horse in the BackAcres breeding program and I was thrilled and honored to bring home FALCONTEP.  Although Falcontep has gone on to "greener pastures" I have the wonderful legacy of his young son Prince Imatep Too.

"Happiness depends on the                   
                     quality of your thoughts."

If you are interested in:

  • Stallions that are able to sire beautiful, athletic, well-conformed foals that can be lived with and used.
  • The best of Foundation bloodlines and the preservation of same.
  • Disposition and temperament, combined with charisma and presence.
  • Reasonable prices and support by a breeder who cares about you and your Arabian mares.


Please feel free to contact me.  I will be happy to try and answer any questions you might have concerning these "Pieces of History".
