For an Arabian horse to be assumed Asil, its pedigree must be exclusively based on Bedouin breeding of the known or historically recognized Bedouin Tribes of the Arabian Peninsula or the deserts of the Middle East.


Desert Origin Asil Arabian horses must be free of any cross breeding to non-Arabian horses.  Desert Origin Asil Arabian horses are of known acceptable origin and are free of impurity.
