Arabian horses are the passion and pride of the Stonebacks of Strattanville, Pennsylvania. Dr. Richard Stoneback has had a clear vision for his breeding program since it began over 40 years ago. Not one to follow the 'Flavor Of the Month' stallions, he has stayed true to the lines that inspired him to enter the world of Arabian breeding. This has lead to his program being one of a special few that still has up close and undiluted Crabbet & CMK breeding.
Breeding such as Oran, *Count Dorsaz, Al-Marah Radames, Garaff, Dargee and *Silver Vanity still up close in the pedigree make the Stoneback horses very rare in today's Arabian world market. These lines were bred to be athletes of the best Arabian type so they are suited to any endeavor requiring stamina, athleticism, agility, heartiness and they are definitely ideal for any Sport Horse activities.
