Catalyst Arabians is a small family-owned Arabian horse farm in Sunny Corralitos Valley, located on the Central Coast of California.
We are dedicated breeders of Spanish Related Arabian and Half-Arabian Horses, with an emphasis on breeding Arabians that are beautiful, have great minds, and usable, athletic bodies.
Our love of the Spanish Arabian Horse began in 1992 after acquiring the Lovely and Charismatic *Numaa daughter, Maarena B and her weanling *Vallehermoso filly, DA Vallenteena. We have gone on to breed and purchase several mares with Bloodlines to *Padre, Jaguay, *GG Samir, WN Ultimate Star, *Fairview Klassique, and *Sidi-Brahim, to name just a few. We have crossed our Spanish/Spanish Related Mares to Stallions such as Alada Baskin I, Its Sshow Time, Odyssey SC, Rohara Moon Storm and NV Elite, to produce Beautiful, Substantial, Intelligent, People Oriented Show Horses.
In 1994 we followed up our first Spanish acquisitions by purchasing the Pure Spanish weanling colt, Quest mf, bred by Lucy Whittier of Las Colinas. We began showing Quest as a Yearling, and his show ring debut was a success. In a Huge Class, Quest was named Scottsdale Top Ten Yearling Colt, at 9 months old. He was also a Top 10 Yearling Colt at several Regional Shows, that same year. He began his performance career as a 3-Year-old, and was a 1998 Region I Top 5 Arabian Western Pleasure JR Horse. Quest is still a National Winning Western Pleasure Horse, in AOTR and Open Competition and is now siring foals of his own. Sold in 1998
