A Foundation Horse  -  see The Documentation, pp 120-225

A Kuhaylat 'Ajuz al-Rabdah (or Kuhaylah Rabdah) from Arabia, imported c1890 to Egypt by the 'aqayl Ibn Bassam of Buraydah in al-Qasim area. In the stud of Prince Ahmad Pasha Kamal, Egypt. Also called Rabda Koheila.

    NOTES: The above information (except for the dates, which are Al Khamsa estimates) is put together from information from the RAS History, pedigrees which accompanied the 1932 Babson and Brown importations from Egypt to the USA and from Lady Anne Blunt. According to the RAS History, p41, Rabda was a "Koheila Rabda-Koheilet Ajouz, Prince Mohamed Ali's Breed." The 1932 certified pedigree for *Nasr from Prince Mohamed Aly's Manial Stud says she was "el Ajuz" from the stud of Prince Ahmad Pasha Kamal. In the 1932 pedigree for *Fadl of the same year and from the same stud, her strain is shown as "Rabda."
    Lady Anne Blunt's 1909 Sheykh Obeyd catalog entry for Sabáh describes Rabda as "the original mare Kehileh Rabdieh brought from Arabia by Ibn Bassam..." According to the Abbas Pasha manuscript [1993, p615] "...she is Kuhayla 'Ajuz. And the reason for her being named Rabda is that her original ra'i, who is of the first ones who have no peers, while riding her felled a rabda [wild ostrich]..."
    According to Raswan Index entry #7944, Rabda was a Kuhaylat Ajuz, bred by Prince Ahmad out of a desert-bred Kuhaylat Ajuz of the Shammar brought to Egypt for Abbas Pasha and sired by Khuzam, a sorrel incest-bred Rabdan Khashiban stallion, both parents out of Rabdah, a mare bred by Abbas Pasha from ancestors imported at the time of Abbas' father Toussun (died 1816). In a private letter to Dr. J.L. Doyle, Raswan gives approximate dates for the horses in this line as follows: Rabda 1880, Khuzam 1869, the dam of Khuzam in 1856, and Rabdah 1848. This is in contradiction to Lady Anne Blunt's records. Concerning the "Kehileh Rabdieh" strain information, Raswan in other material describes the Rabdan strain as one of the ancient strains, not a substrain of the Kuhaylan.
