We purchased our first purebred arabian mares in the early 70's and soon our breeding program began. Our foundation mare was the beautiful 1982 Australian Top 10 mare Ralvon Quiseet. Quiseet was bred to such stallions as Milex and Amir El Shaklan and her bloodlines are greatly valued in our stud today. Quiseet was known for her extreme floating trot, a trait she inherited from her International Champion sire Ralvon Pilgrim.

In 1988 we imported Simeon Seth'na from Holland - a straight Russian colt by Peleng. Seth'na was a powerful moving, very tall iridescent chestnut stallion and he has sired a number of progeny who have gone on to be mountain stock horses, pony club mounts, successful endurance horses and valuable breeding mares. The Russian arabian influence in our stud can be seen in the sound conformation, powerful movement and ability to perform. Seth'na has also produced black progeny. Undurra Angelique is a very special daughter of Simeon Seth'na and Ralvon Quiseet and she is the dam of very successful endurance arabians.

 In 1995 we purchased our first straight Egyptian colt - Simeon Shoah, by Anaza Bay Shahh. Shoah was born black and produced black foals. He was a beautiful charismatic, dry desert type who has sired very typey foals both on our farm and for other breeders. He is the sire of Australia's first two embryo transplanted arabian purebred foals for Simeon Stud. Shoah's foals typically have amazing people friendly temperaments, smooth bodies, dry heads and very good legs. His progeny have gone on to become eventers, dressage mounts, straight Egyptian sires, show horses and increasingly they are sought after as successful endurance horses. Undurra Simone, Undurra Monalisa, Undurra Satine and Undurra Lovesong, all by Simeon Shoah,  are valued broodmares for our stud.

In 2002 we purchased Simeon Shatah, by Akid Geshan. He is an exotic, tall stallion who combines the best of Egyptian and Russian characteristics. He has crossed well with our Seth'na and Shoah mares. We have some lovely Shatah daughters -  Undurra Mia, Undurra Tah'llia and Undurra Tiara, and they are part of the future for our stud. Simeon Shatah's progeny are proving to be very successful endurance horses.Shatah also sires black foals.

In 2003 we purchased our first straight Egyptian bay mare Simeon Safta by Simeon Sadik. Safta is stunningly beautiful and has proven her value as a broodmare in the quality of her foals. In 2006 we exported Undurra Sharif, Safta's black son by Simeon Shoah, to Europe. Safta's 2005 Imperial Madaar son, Undurra Maarquis was exported to Malaysia and he is now a successful Undurra endurance arabian.

Many Undurra arabians are purchased for a future in performance - endurance, pony club, dressage or stock work. Others are sold to horse lovers who want the strengths of Russian bloodlines or just a beautiful arabian to love. We also have a demand for straight Egyptian bloodlines and in particular, the bloodlines of the world acclaimed and exquisite arabians of Simeon Stud, Australia. At Undurra we have 'black' bloodlines in many of our arabians and there is a demand for our black progeny.

It is a great source of pride to have Undurra endurance arabians making such a mark in  endurance in Australia and Malaysia. Also just recently, the very successful Undurra Shimon was exported to the Middle East.

These bloodlines are a combination of arabians which have been central to our breeding program for a long time. Ralvon Quiseet by Ralvon Pilgrim and Quiseet's daughter Undurra Mimikka by Milex are contributing to our endurance arabians. Then with the purchase of the huge moving and powerful Russian Simeon Seth'na imported from Holland, we added another valuable bloodline which built on the endurance ability of our arabians. Next came two more Simeon stallions, the straight Egyptian Simeon Shoah and the Egyptian/Russian Simeon Shatah. These two stallions have added very competitive endurance characteristics to our arabians which are evident particularly in the success of Undurra Zahir Shah named South Australian High Point Endurance Horse.

Recently we have purchased two more exciting straight Egyptian stallions from Simeon Stud. Their bloodlines will complement our beautiful mares. Simeon Shiur by Immesmerize from Simeon Simone (double Asfour) is bay, extremely well balanced and athletic. He is very flamboyant, loves showing off but is quite happy to go along with whatever is asked of him. Simeon Saadli is a black /grey  by the legendary Asfour from the beautiful Ibtehag Albadeia. He is also very athletic and happy to please. He has produced some lovely foals for us this season.

Our involvement and interest in arabians has taken us to many countries where we have been able to share many other people's love of the arabian horse. We are fortunate to have visited many studs around the world and have been to major shows in Europe, the US and Britain. Wherever they are, arabian horses have the ability to take your breath away; to give you goosebumps.

During the past 40 years, our own arabian horses have been a source of enjoyment, pleasure and many 'goosebumps' whether it has been when we are riding along a bush track, being there when a new foal is born, when our arabian is awarded a ribbon at a show or when a friend rings to say her new Undurra arabian is everything she has dreamed of and more. More than once we have been asked-  "Are you sure this mare hasn't been broken in before?"

It gives us great pleasure to help others achieve their arabian dream with an arabian from Undurra Arabians, Australia.
