Al Waab farm is situated in Qatar just 70 km north of Doha City.
The farm is a beautiful desert oasis of lush green pastures, plants, trees and lakes. It is home to many different species of wild animals, bird-life and of course the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse.
Al Waab in English means the "Lowlands" and is owned by Sheikh Abdulla Bin Khalid Bin Hamed Al Thani. Having noticed an incredibly old Samr tree that had grown strongly in the desert, Sheikh Abdulla new it was a land of not only true beauty but fruitful potential. This tree soon became the symbol of the farm and is for which the logo was designed.
Now, together with his family, he has created an incredible sanctuary for people and wildlife alike.
It is 'The Straight Egyptian Arabian Horse' that truly captures Sheikh Abdulla Bin Khalid Bin Hamad's heart, as it does for one of his son's Sheikh Ahmed Bin Abdulla Bin Khalid Al Thani who is responsible for the Straight Egyptian breeding program.
Both Sheikh Abdulla and Sheikh Ahmed are extremely passionate about the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse. This unique breed represents less than 4% of the total Arabian horse population, and as caretakers of the breed, it has become their objective to spread awareness, educate and support the smaller breeders to ensure the Straight Egyptian Arabian is here for many years to come.
We look forward to sharing with you the Straight Egyptians Arabians of Al Waab Farm.
