The Crabbet Arabian Stud
The Crabbet Arabian Stud was founded in 1878 by Lady Anne and Wilfrid Blunt with the arrival of the first six horses to be imported from the desert following the first major journey, originally conceived to find the blood of the Darley Arabian, an exceptional Arabian stallion that was to become a major contributor to the English thoroughbred some 150 years earlier. The plan quickly evolved into the founding a stud of Arabian horses in England to try and preserve the already rare purebred Arabian. Lady Anne's famous words are a matter of historic record...
"it should be an interesting and useful thing to do and I should much like to try it"
