Arabian Horse World’s Stud Book Research


Computer Research by Douglas Tatelman

Volume 91 (January 2019 to December 2019) is defined as Registrations from 677622 through 680330
Volume 92 (January 2020 to December 2020) includes Registrations from 680331 through 682789

For over 60 years, Arabian Horse World has presented annual recaps of Arabian registrations and transfers of ownership, providing a snapshot of the comparative vigor of our breed activity.

Here are the numbers from 2019 and 2020. Sadly, the slide continues with the numbers of registered foals, number of unique breeders, and transfers of ownership all down. Both Stud Book Volumes had the same leading sire of foals: Afires Heir (Afire Bey V x Brassmis) with 45 and 37 foals respectively. In 2019, the second place sire of foals was Exxalt (*Excalibur EA x Vesperra) with 39 foals, and in 2020, the second-place sire was Inception (IXL Noble Express x Bonita Afire) with 30 foals. According to Debbie Fuentes of the Arabian Horse Registry, total registrations for 2019 was 2,631, and for 2020 the total was 2,469.
