Homer Davenport was an Early American Foundation Arabian horse breeder.

Davenport Arabian designates the desert-bred Arabian registered as imported by Homer Davenport in 1906. It also applies to any horse which is totally descended from horses in that importation.

Homer Davenport was born in Silverton, Oregon in 1867. He became the foremost political cartoonist of his era. During the Presidential campaign, Davenport met Presidentail candidate Theodore Roosevelt and grew to support his candidacy. Later, when Davenport asked Roosevelt to obtain an export permit for Arabian horses from the Sultan, it was accomplished. Roosevelt also aided the transportation of the horses acquired by Davenport back to the United States.

Of the 27 horses which Davenport imported to the U.S., 25 were registered with AHR and 20 are represented in modern American breeding programs of Early American Foundation Arabian horses. Fifteen of the original imports have straight Davenport descendents living today.

Horses imported by Homer Davenport:

*Haleb AHR 25
*Houran AHR 26
*Muson AHR 27
*Hamrah AHR 28
*El Bulad AHR 29
*Wadduda AHR 30
*Gomusa AHR 31
*Azra AHR 32
*Deyr AHR 33
*Kusof AHR 35
*Reshan AHR 38
*Abeyah AHR 39
*Urfah AHR 40
*Werdi AHR 41
*Farha AHR 42
*Hadba AHR 43
*Jedah AHR 44
*Haffia AHR 45
*Abbeian AHR 111

Horses listed as being owned by Homer Davenport:

*Abu Zeyd
*Markisa
*Enzahi
*Berid
*Jahil

Horses registered as bred by Homer Davenport:

Yimeta AHR 17
Obeyran II AHR 18
Nejdran Jr AHR 49
Nejdme III AHR 54
Beder AHR 55
Bozra II AHR 56
Yusanet AHR 57
Sebha AHR 59
Manakey AHR 62
Saaida AHR 66
Tamri AHR 67
Rhua AHR 69
Mekka AHR 71
Davenport AHR 78
Daghar AHR 83
Jerrede AHR 84
Sira AHR 85
Skammer AHR 87
Fahreddin AHR 132
Sabot AHR 205
Mannaky Jr AHR 292

Davenport's death in 1912 had little effect on the breeding program established with his importation. Peter Bradley, who helped with the original acquisitions, owned some of the imports. The remaining horses passed to his ownership when Davenport died. Bradley bred almost exclusively within the Davenport herd at his Hingham Stock Farm until the mid-1920's.

Davenport Arabian horses are all Early American Foundation, SBV, Al Khamsa.

*EL BULAD - AHR*29 was imported by Mr. Davenport. He was Early American Foundation, SBV, Al Khamsa.

Charles Craver of Hillview,Ill. has been doing preservation breeding of the Davenport line since the 50s. Has bred a few hundred. I think he has around 50-60 today. They are really different than "mainline modern" Arabs.

SBV refers to the AHR Stud Book Vol. 5 which included all horses registered by AHR in Vols. 1-5. Charles Craver believes that any horse related 100% to the horses registered in SBV is the genetic equivalent of the SBV horses and, therefore, is also entitled to the title SBV. Thus, the term SBV, as coined by Mr. Craver, refers to all horses descended from those registered in AHR Vol. 5 as well as all of their 100% descendants and 100% siblings.

Hi! Do you have a list of horses that were imported from Saudi Arabia back in the early 1900's? Along with their details, such as strain, pedigree, name of importers, progeny?

Thanks!

There were quite a few actually. Are you interested in a particular breeder, or importation, or horse?

We have not determined the strain of the Hearst imports just yet, but we are still researching.

All of them! :) A good friend of mine was doing some research about the Saudi Arabia imports. She specifically asked about a mare starting with "B". I'll have to look her up.
