Catalogue Note

This document shows the pedigree, going back five generations, of the champion Arabian horse Nisreen, who was bred at the Crabbet Arabian Stud in Sussex in 1919. Nisreen's parents were champion Arabian horses Nureddin and Nasra and his ancestry includes the international champion Mesaoud. The Crabbet Arabian stud was founded in 1878 by Lady Anne and Wilfrid Blunt (1837-1917), and was "one of the greatest private studs, destined to influence Arabian horse breeding worldwide" (ODNB). The stud was taken over by Lady Blunt's daughter Julia in 1917, who become 16th Baroness Wentworth and ran the stud until 1957. It is believed that most Arabian horses living today can trace their pedigrees in one or more lines to Crabbet horses.
