Maynesboro Arabian Stud
Berlin, New Hampshire

Sire of 106 registered purebred Arabian foals here in the United States and also in South Africa. His Kellogg-bred son Abu Farwa and daughter Rasarah are both of mid-pedigree influence in the foundation horses of Arieana's CMK Arabians.

From our Arieana Notebook: There are simply not enough words nor space on this website to describe the inspiration and influence Rabiyas has had on our CMK Heritage breeding program here in Southern California at Arieana Arabians. As the descending next-in-line son of Rahas, Rabiyas carried forward this highly-valued branch of our Mesaoud linebreeding program with his quality and substance, good temperament, and excellent action.

Herbert H. Reese, commenting on Rabiyas in his book The Kellogg Arabians, mentions that he was an honest performer at any task for which he was trained. Rabiyas was shown as a five-gaited saddle horse in the Kellogg Sunday Shows and was a well-conformed individual of striking presence, elegance, and talent. His slow gait was stylish, his walk fast, and his canter slow and easy; in short he was one of the best working Arabians ever trained for five gaits. In total Rabiyas embodied all that we at Arieana Arabians believe in as we strive to perpetuate those qualities and traits so needed to excel in the Sport Horse endeavors of the show ring, at the track, out on the endurance trails, or for family pleasure riding and companionship.

Rabiyas, the last foal bred by W.R. Brown, was purchased in-utero with his dam Rabiyat from the Maynesboro Dispersal Sale late Fall 1935 by Mr. W.K. Kellogg and was foaled the following Spring at the Kellogg Ranch, Pomona, California. Rabiyas served the Kellogg Ranch program both as an outstanding sire and as a performer in their Sunday Shows. He was sold during the Remount Dispersal in October, 1949 to Donald C. and Charles H. McKenna of Claremont, California. In 1954, he was sold again, this time his new home was in Cape Province, South Africa with P.J. Van der Merwe where Rabiyas established yet another dynasty of show champions renowned for their five-gaited ability, a popular class in the show rings of South Africa.

Meanwhile his progeny and their descends here in the United States were establishing themselves as strong competitors in the show ring as well as Endurance Horses Supreme starting with the amazing feats of his son Damascus (x Rayza), winner of the grueling Vermont Trail Ride. His son Abu Farwa established a dynasty of his own and his name and influence is still sought in pedigrees today. 

Rabiyas, true to the genetic trait for longevity renowned of this sireline, lived to be over 30 years old.
