The American Foundation Arabian Horse Association (AFAHA) was established in 2001 to preserve and promote the original bloodlines of Arabian horses existing in the United States by and before 1940.
An Early American Foundation Arabian horse (EAF) traces 100% to Arabians in the U.S. by and before 1940 (registration nos. 1-2924 found in AHR Stud Book V).
An American Foundation Arabian horse (AF) traces 100% to Arabians in the U.S. by and before 1960 (registration nos 1-16015 found in AHR Stud Books 1-10).
An American Foundation-Bred Arabian horse (AFB) traces at least 75% American Foundation Arabian horses.
Arabian Horses originally imported into North America were characteristic of the desert horse — prized for their hardiness, substance, versatility, stamina, soundness, athletic ability and intelligence, without sacrifice of beauty and presence.
AFAHA does provides Certificates of Designation for Arabian and half-Arabian horses which are EAF, AF, AFB or American Foundation-Related. Membership in AFAHA is free.
