It is our belief that in the cradle of nature lies the preservation of the human spirit. We found the source of our pursuit in the National Treasure of the Arabian desert; The Classic Arabian Horse.
Our principle mission at Aldebaran Arabians is founded upon the progressive stewardship of archetypal progenitors of classic Arabian type. Through this mission, the forward guardianship of rare and unique Arabian individuals is an integral role. We hope to carry our work in respect to the designs of nature by maintaining an organic and ethically-artistic approach to conserving classic, charismatic beauty and impressive function in these regal creatures. We warmly welcome you to explore this online presentation of our program and thank you for your interest in the Arabian horse.
Our foundation mare is the ethereal MENA ALDEBARAN
(by *Laheeb, Out of a Menes daughter) forming the embodiment of classic and rare genetics available to our future bloodline. She is dam to our young stallion LUCEAFAR ALDEBARAN
, now an exclusive breeding prospect at Aldebaran carrying her rare bloodlines.
Purpose is the reigning question for everyone, and the very journey in the foundation of Aldebaran Arabians has been manifested through a very personal objective.
An avid enthusiast of Arabian horses, Gaurav WALIA, (raised in equatorial Africa) has lived in Nairobi, London and Cape Town. Always inspired by the vivid influence of racetracks and Polo culture, his family home in Kenya was mere minutes from the prestigious Ngong Race Course established during colonial British East Africa - a colorful upbringing that developed his keen interest in nature, wildlife - and in particular, horses.
Aside from equine endeavors, his San Francisco-based studio Guided Safaris, Inc.
is an Internationally-recognized luxury brand in the world of bespoke safaris that support some of Africa's most significant wilderness conservation projects in off-the-map ecological hotspots where the world-famous National Geographic wildlife documentaries are filmed.
In collaboration with his partner, Soniya Hayat, he now resides in California. Together, they have traveled across the globe to over 30 countries in pursuit of art, beauty and creative inspiration.
