Al Khamsa

Al Khamsa: horses in North America descended entirely from a group of more than 100 foundation horses researched by Al Khamsa, Inc. and determined to meet the criteria of being reasonably assumed to descend entirely from Bedouin Arabian horses that were bred by the nomadic horse-breeding tribes of the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula and that have breeding-stock descendants in North America.  All Blue Star, Davenport, and Heirloom horses, and most Sheykh Obeyd and Straight Egyptians, are accepted by Al Khamsa, Inc.
