About Us & Our Program...written by Owner/Manager, Letta Smith
Created Through the Sands of Time...Cressant Hill Arabians was established following a childhood dream I had as a young girl; and named as a tribute to the very first foal I raised, Morning Cressant. As a lover of all equine breeds; the Arabian breed was chosen after reminiscing memories of a favorite school library magazine photograph of a beautiful snow white alabaster grey Arabian stallion, *Farazdac! Whom I discovered later, was a Straight Egyptian Arabian. One may say coincidence, but I feel it was fate! At the tender young age of 19, and shortly after marriage; with my husband Jerry’s love of history and horses, combined with my dreams of raising beautiful foals, together we started a life's passion and purchased our first foundation mare in June 1991, Eskada Yasmine. Soon followed by a second mare, Melikaa and a stud colt, The Mohave in 1992. Thus, creating a solid foundation of Champion bloodlines for our program; that carries on in the Arabian horses here at our stable today! Our goal is and always will be to produce beautiful Straight Egyptian Arabian horses with the friendly Bedouin tent personality and disposition, safe for families and children, that the desert horse breed has been known and admired for, with an emphasis on each individuals athletic performance discipline style.
Located among the rolling hills of Mid-Missouri, on 20 private acres, we specialize in the preservation breeding of one of the most beautiful breed of horses in the world! Conveniently located one hour west of the St. Louis International Airport, near Interstate 70 and Highway 40/61. The property has a lovely set up; with a metal Morton barn containing eight 10’ x 10’ stalls, two 10’ x 16” foaling stalls, a tack room, and a 60’ x 60’ indoor riding arena. Horses are conditioned and trained utilizing the 100’ x 120’ outdoor riding arena; and several large pastures are available for turnout, with a few riding trails and a small creek, to allow the horses plenty of space to run and play. Cressant Hill Arabians attends horse shows, horse fairs and seminars, to remain current on all things “equine”.

With people loving personalities they combine a rich historic legacy, with the ability & temperament to excel in all types of disciplines: Sport Horse, English, Western, Dressage, Endurance, Reining, Working Cow Horse, Racing, Hunter/Jumper; as well as Halter and beloved family companion!
