Babson Arabians are also important as breeding
stock, and are considered to be pure in the terms
of not only Straight Egyptians, but also qualify for
the Al Khamsa, Asil, Blue List, Early American
Foundation, Heirloom, Pyramid, and Sheykh Obeyd groups. All Straight Babson Egyptian Arabians pedigrees trace entirely and explicitly back to the 1932 Egyptian Importation by Henry Babson.
Due to having lines that go back to royalty, all Kamar-bred horses are "live in your pocket" and act like true desert war horses. Desert horses were prized for their hardiness, substance, versatility, soundness, and athletic ability.
Babsons and Babson bred horses are wonderful
outcrosses and have desirable traits that many
programs strive to achieve. They were widely used as
outcrosses for new Egyptian bloodlines in the 1970's
and 1980's, which resulted in some widely known
horses of today: Azraff, Fadjur, and Khemosabi are just
a few examples. Today, there only remain between
200 and 250 Straight Babson Arabian horses in the
breeding population worldwide.
