Al Khamsa, Blue List, American Foundation Bred; Ee
Cavaleiro (“Knight” in Portuguese) is the sole, intact Al Khamsa son of RB Cavalier++. Cavaleiro is a modern day classic. His type, substance and beauty are echoes of his desert heritage. While Cavaleiro is a deviation for our program in many ways, he offers rare access in terms of pedigree and also athleticism. Cavaleiro is one of the stars of our working western show string and promises to continue his father’s legacy as a great show and breeding horse.
Cavaleiro’s sire, RB Cavalier++, is well represented in our program as he was our first Arabian horse. RB Cavalier++ was a wildly successful show horse who captured numerous Class “A”, Regional, and National titles in a variety of divisions. You can read more about RB Cavalier’s influence on our program here: RB Cavalier.
Cavaleiro’s dam, Al Asam Zaheera, brings together some of the most beloved horses from Henry Babson’s program and Ansata Arabians. Her pedigree boasts great show horses such as the Park Horse sensation Mahrouf (lead sire at the Babson farm for many years). Her pedigree also winds through horses like Ansata Shah Zaman (exported by Count Zichy Thyssen) without whom great horses like Ansata Hejazi, Authentic Ibn Nawaal, and Farhoud Al Shaqab would not exist. Another important horse in her pedigree is Ibn Fa-Serr, the sire of Serr Maariner, who competed through Grand Prix and was his rider’s mount through her receipt of the USDF Gold Medal.
Cavaleiro is true-to-pedigree and showing prowess as a working western and sport horse. In his 3 year old year Cavaleiro embarked on his show career by claiming a national title in trail and class “A” wins in Sport Horse in Hand.
Please note Cavaleiro is the 3rd horse featured in the Arabian Horse Times video compilation in the video gallery.
