Drinkers of the Wind Arabians is an Arabian horse ranch located in the
Rocky Mountains in Bellevue, Idaho near the Sun Valley Ski Resort.
Robert Bouttier owned and operated the ranch since the 1970's and named
it Drinkers of the Wind Arabians after the book written by Carl Raswan. Robert raised mostly Polish Arabian horses with the Forta and Sabellina bloodlines which produced the great horses such as Sambor, Sabson,
Samtyr, Monarch AH, Falat, NF Proof, etc. French Arabian bloodlines have
also been included in the DWA breeding program by stallions such as
Haffir el Rimal, Chndaka, Ala Croixnoire, Falina des Fabries, and Darwinn.
Many of the DWA horses have excelled at the racetrack as well as in
endurance, and others have made excellent pleasure and trail horses.
Robert Bouttier unexpectedly passed away on February 28, 2021.
You are still invited to the DWA ranch if you are interested in his horses.
