From our Arieana Notebook: *Nasik was described by Lady Wentworth as "...a magnificent horse of the type best liked by the Bedouins, having style and quality in a superlative degree."

Herbert H. Reese writes in his book The Kellogg Arabians that one of *Nasik's strong points was his oblique shoulder with prominent withers; the other was his clean, flat bone of good quality with*Nasik the tendon standing well away from the cannon and hocks free from puffiness.  When it came to animation, he was unbeatable and his trot was better than most Arabians. He was a bright bay with even, white markings in face and all four legs and a made-to-order show horse with red-gold highlights glancing off his lustrous coat. (p.158)

Carol Mulder mentions in The Arabian Horse Journal that Charles A. Smith, a trainer at Kellogg, claimed that *Nasik was the best horse he ever rode, of any breed. Mr. Smith is quoted as saying *Nasik was superbly athletic, had a wonderful mouth, was sensitive, responsive, easy riding, and felt better under him than any other horse in his experience.

We at Arieana Arabians take great pride in that our bloodstock descending from *Nasik continue to exhibit these same highly-desirable qualities of conformation, disposition, elegance, and stylish way of going.
