Thunder is a big, bold, flamboyant mover with a sensible temperament, very full of himself while willing to please. He is pretty sure that he is the ultimate partner for any mare!

Showing plenty of bone and substance he will take time to mature at around 15hh to 15.1hh.

Thunder is CID Clear.


We're coming back

Comanche Lodge has been in somewhat of a hiatus for the past year or so due to family and other work commitments. The struggle to continue after the untimley loss of Silver Wind Van Nina has had some ups and downs with the loss of a couple of important mares that we had great plans for and the tragedy of losing the young stallion Glendarra Park Listz who we had so much excitement and hope for.

Please bear with us we begin to reconstruct our stud's presence here on the web and in the real world.

What is a Crabbet Arabian

A PURE CRABBET ARABIAN is one which traces in all lines of its pedigree to Pure Arabian horses owned or  bred by Lady Anne Blunt, Wilfrid Blunt, Lady Wentworth, Cecil Covey and the Crabbet Stud..

CRABBET BRED refers to those Pure Arabian horses which are of predominantly Crabbet breeding i.e 75% or  over CrabbetArabian Breeding.

Crabbet Park Stud

The Crabbet Arabian Stud was established on 2 July 1878 when the first Arabian horses brought to England by Wilfrid Scawen Blunt and Lady Anne Blunt arrived at Crabbet Park, their estate in Sussex. Six months earlier, while staying in Aleppo, Wilfrid and Lady Anne had made a plan to import some of the best Arabian horses to England and breed them there. In Lady Anne's words, "it would be an interesting and useful thing to do and I should like much to try it."

The Crabbet Arabian Today

The particular virtues of Crabbet horses - sound, athletic conformation, good movement, solid temperament and performance abiltity - show up especially well in under saddle competition, and particularly in endurance riding. Thus, the modern Arabian of Crabbet ancestry can be seen in the backyard of the single horse owner, on rugged wilderness terrain, or at the highest levels of national performance competition.
