Mission Statement

The mission of SAHS is to preserve, improve, and maintain the purity of Spanish blooded horses of the Arabian breed.  SAHS strives for the advancement of education for the benefit of the public, to promote and facilitate the acquisition and distribution of the knowledge, in all countries, of the history, care and propagation of the Spanish Arabian horse.

History and Progress of SAHS

     Many of the founding directors were members of a group of Spanish Arabian bloodline enthusiasts and breeders who first joined forces in the 1980’s.  Due to changes in the Arabian market, and the passing of some of the leaders from that era, the group was “in hibernation” for several years. 
     In 2004, the Spanish Arabian Horse Society (SAHS) grew from some of those previous members.  SAHS received WAHO (World Arabian Horse Organization) affiliation on 22 October 2004 and AHA (Arabian Horse Association) affiliation on 16 November 2004. 
     We are members of  AECCA (Association Espanola De Criadores De Caballos Arabes) in Spain, and in August 2006 we merged with SAHBI (Spanish Arabian Horse Breeders International), giving us a true global focus for the promotion of the Spanish Arabian. 
     Also in August 2006, AHA recognized the Spanish Arabian as one of the bloodlines on their Education Pages.  On 18 November 2006 SAHS received the AHA Club Excellence Award for Communication, and was named the AHA Club of the Year!
