Alpha Arabians LLC
Agriculture & Farming
Alpha Arabian's LLC is a 140-acre Arabian Horse farm in beautiful Central Virginia. Established in 1997, Alpha Arabian's started as a small business, specializing in breeding quality Arabian horses in an attempt to improve the Arabian horse breed. Purebred and Half-Arabian's were bred to produce Champion bloodlines.
From 1997-2003, FIVE foals were born. All were sold as SHOW prospects. During this time frame the farm was built around the Business. With humble beginnings, the farm started as a parcel of heavily wooded raw land. Harvesting timber and cleared land dominated the landscape. The horses were managed on 3 acres while the pastures were cleared and building's erected. Over time, 30 acres were cleared for pasture. A road, well, fences, barn and 3 outside building's became the new landscape.
From 2003-2012, the Breeding Program was "stepped up a notch," with the addition of a Professional Arabian Horse trainer. The Business Plan now focused on producing quality PERFORMANCE Arabian's and Sport Horses. The Breeding Mares included two newly purchased Polish Arabian Mares and one Non-Arabian mare already in the herd.
The farm became very busy as FIVE new foals arrived, over this time period. At age 2, they started training at Trainer's farm. Each was given a chance to train and compete. Out of these 5 (3 colts, 2 Mares), 1 remains at the farm. 2 were placed in homes and 2 were sold to competitive riders went on to compete at the Regional and National level.
During this time frame, the farm and barn were customized. Stalls were added, 3 Outside building's great to 6 and pastures were cut and baled for hay 3 times a year.
Today, Alpha Arabian's is the Primary residence of an Owner. While the Breeding Program has stopped, 11 horses remain. NOW, The Business Plan is to SHARE the farm. A lot of hard work, and dedication built the farm. NOW, Others can appreciate and enjoy this beautiful farm and facility.
