Professor Dr Siegfried Paufler, another founding father of the Arabian horse breeding scene and a passionate breeder of Asil-Arabian horses of Egyptian bloodlines, died unexpectedly at the age of 95.

On December 29, 2023, our longtime member and one of the co-founders of the Asil Club, Heiner Buschfort, passed away unexpectedly. He built up one of the best-known Asil Arabian studs in Germany, the internationally renowned Kauber Platte Stud.

Approximately 300 horses of Straight-Irani Asil Arabians (Khuzestan Asils) have been confirmed as "asil" according to the Asil Club definition and will thus be included in the Club's conservation efforts.
