Hi, I'm Kate Rhodes.
I grew up riding and showing Arabians and half Arabians and got an introduction to Al Khamsa through the purchase of my first yearling project, Ruala Aleetta, from Grove Hill Farm in Maine. I was 18 and I never turned back.
I have long loved the strength, loyalty, beauty and intelligence of the Arabian, but I find those qualities are intensified in Al Khamsa Arabians, most likely because of the purity of their blood.
After visiting Treff Haven Arabians in 2008, I realized my core preference is EAO and Inshass blood, but I do own and have seen and worked with a variety of other groups within Al Khamsa Arabians and find value in all the individuals that our preservation breeders are producing. I can not emphasize enough how my love and dedication to breeding these horses shapes my life in such positive ways. These horses are worthy of our time, honor and dedication.
