Island Arabians is an Arabian breeding farm located on Vancouver Island on the West Coast of British Columbia. We are a small breeder with a select group of mares, committed to producing offspring from the best bloodlines.
We strive to produce versatile horses that will perform as superb breeding stock or show and pleasure prospects. Our goal is to give our foals the best start possible in order to offer youngsters with good minds that will facilitate success in future training. The size of our operation makes that possible, with each new arrival treated with care in a process that ensures they bond well with the humans in their environment.
At Island Arabians our horses are turned out onto generous pasture every day, weather permitting. We believe this makes our horses more robust and content. Youngsters are turned out together, providing them with the opportunity to learn how to interact with other horses. Breeding stallions are not maintained on the farm. Sires are chosen to fit with each mare's pedigree to produce desired conformation, size and ability.
Training is started early with a gentle and slow approach. Our goal is to build a bond of trust and respect and our success is evident in the well mannered, sound horses that we are producing.
Research is continuing on the bloodlines of our horses. We are gathering information and photographs of these horses and we hope that you will find it just as interesting as we do. We will be posting more of this information as we progress with the reworking of our website.
We offer a very limited number of horses for sale, allowing us to continue our breeding program.
