From our Arieana Notebook:
Rehal, a stallion famed for his superior trot and transmitting that trait on to his get, was purchased by William Randolph Hearst from W.R. Brown during the Maynesboro Dispersal Sale of 1934. Rehal was noted by Carol W. Mulder as "...a horse of outstanding individual merit, was better than his sire and much better than his dam. He was a handsome, well-balanced horse with a good head, fine small ears, pleasing neck with a mitbah and clean throat, good conformation, good legs and good shoulders."

Rehal had inherited his superior trot not only from his dam *Ramim but also from his sire Sidi, a stallion also noted for his good action at the trot. In fact Rehal's pedigree was saturated with ancestors renown for their outstanding trotting qualities: *Berk, Bukra, Ahmar, Azrek, two lines to Queen of Sheba, *Astraled, Khaled, *Nimr, *Nazli, two lines to *Naomi, and El Emir. 

Rehal, ranking among the top echelon of Arabian sires of his time and especially renown as a sire of noteworthy broodmares, stood at stud for W. R. Brown from 1925-1932 and continued his stud career at San Simeon for two more years, 1935-1937. Rehal sired a lifetime total of 18 registered purebred Arabian foals (6 colts and 12 fillies) passing on his own brilliant action as his legacy. At Arieana Arabians, we treasure his mid-pedigree influence through three of his daughters: Rabiyat, a mare renown for her elegant style and action and passing those traits on to her foals and their foals; Ribagh, the dam of Mounri; and the beautiful Rayik, a mare also renown for her style and action and passing those traits on to her foals.
