HRH PRINCE ABDULMAJEED BIN SULTAN BIN ABDULAZIZ AL SAUD
THE SOUL OF AKMAL STUD
Coming from a family where the Arabian Horses has had a special role for centuries, this breed runs through His Highness’ veins and in his heart. HRH Prince Abdulmajeed has long dreamt about owning his farm and horses to honor his country’s heritage and honor this royal breed.
In 2018, it was not a dream anymore but a beautiful reality!! His Highness’ vision is not only to compete at a high level in the show scene but also to preserve the Arabian Horse Breed and create a Breeding Program that will, one day be recognized Worldwide!
While studying Politics and International Relations, Prince Abdulmajeed keeps a close eye to his horses and especially his babies, which he always gives a special attention, His Highness is studying hard. He has given his trust to a competent team and to his confidant and right hand, Fahad AlGhofaily our general manager. Prince Abdulmajeed’s vision and Fahad’s values are very linked and perfectly matching.
They are conducting AKMAL to a true respect of our dear breed.
FAHAD S. ALGHOFAILY
THE MIND OF AKMAL STUD
Passionate about Arabian Horses since he was a child, Fahad has started to ride at an early age.
His adventure with the Arabian Horse Shows really started once he created his own Stud, soon after finishing his studies. His main focus was on Straight Egyptian lines, which have always kept a special place in his heart. His passion never stopped growing and his love for Arabian Horses has caught the attention of the visionary HRH Prince Abdulmajeed. His Highness entrusted Fahad from day one to be part of the creation of his stud.
The two started their journey together and after a long work, a lot of studies and big big dreams, AKMAL Stud was created!!! Fahad is our General Manager and conducts everything AKMAL.
His long experience not only with horses but also as chief marketing in different fields is a real asset for us. His high expectations and his knowledge allow the team to develop a different strategy and a different approach of the show and breeding program.
