Established 1969. Celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2019


Anne Brown welcomes you to Gadebrook Arabian Stud. We raise pure-bred (mainly Crabbet) performance Arabian horses for racing and endurance based on pure Crabbet lines from Australia.

We have been home over the years to top Arabian stallions: Racing superstar Sambist, World Endurance Champion Hachim (left), and Performance Horse Awards overall champion, Binley Prince Salim. We represent the US winner of the first WAHO trophy and multi-talented Remington Steele*++ and also the Australian Crabbet show-winner MillPark Blaidd, both by frozen semen.

  Gadebrook stud is located near Oundle, Peterborough in Northamptonshire, 75 miles north of London, England.

Anne is proud to have won the Arab Horse Society 'Breeder of the Year' award for 2018, and also the Crabbet Endurance “Breeder of the Year” award.

The results were based on the achievements of horses bred at Gadebrook including Kaalif, Remynise, Azarina, Kalish, Samba B, Mandarine and Kalista.

Australia when the awards ceremony took place so
only received the rosettes and garlands on her return


Binley Prince Salim's grey 15.1hh pure Crabbet colt son Hadiya (out of Australian mare Pevensey Zariffia) born 2016, is retained for stud duties and Endurance. He will be shown in-hand in 2019 and is booked for the British Breeding evaluations in September. Hadiya now trained for AI, with all Gadebrook mares scanned in foal this spring after just one insemination.

2016 will now be producing foals of his own!

  Australian mare Inshallah Signature and home-bred Azarina both in foal to Gadebrook's Crabbet stallion Hadiya for pure-Crabbet foals in 2020. Home-bred Mazaria covered by Australian Crabbet stallion MillPark Blaidd.  

Home-bred bay gelding Kaalif awarded “Crabbet Endurance Horse of the Year” for 2018. He is now owned by his rider Anja. Kaalif’s dam Palma Benay earns “Leading Brood Mare” award for 2018. Kaalif's son Shaarif also joins Anja and her family.


  Anne attended the 2019 WAHO conference in Australia, and afterwards visited Palma’s breeder Leon Bennett in New Zealand. In association with Leon, Anne now shares the important pure Egyptian mare Simeon Shurah (Asfour x Simeon Safron), a great-granddaughter of 27 Ibn Galal V, with her filly foal Shiraz sired by Simeon Shulchan by Anazah Bey Shahh (a Morafic grandson) out of Simeon Saadia (also a great-granddaughter of 27 Ibn Galal V).  

Gadebrook's racing supremo Sambist (deceased 2014) won the AHS 'Arabian Racing Sire of the Year' award in 2018 for an unprecedented 13th time in 15 years.
Sambist appears on the cover of the AHS Centenary Premium Performance Scheme commemorative book of stallions, and his genome sequence features in the Centenary exhibition and on the back cover of the Centenary book. He was the first Arabian in the world to have his genes identified. A limited amount of frozen semen is available to approved mares.


  Two Gadebrook Endurance horses have proved themselves again in 2018, pure Crabbet gelding Kaalif coming 2nd nationally in the Silver section of the BEF Futurity Graduates Awards for 7 to 10-year olds, ridden by Anja Ward with 953 points, and the Sambist son, Samba B winning the Bronze section for 6-year olds, with owner Sarah O’Neill. Congratulations to both riders! 3-yr old Hadiya entered for 2019 Futurity in September.

  Bay gelding Shiraaz, born 2016, by British National Champion Aazari x Inshallah Signature (imported from Australia to Gadebrook in 2012) is showing enormous promise with extravagant movement and flair.  
  Gadebrook did especially well at the 2017 Crabbet Endurance Awards in February, and Anne won the Crabbet Endurance Breeder title for results from Remynisce, Kaalif, Kalish and Azarina.
  Binley Prince Salim is gelded and has been competing in Medium level British Dressage, with over 120 BD points. He won the first BD Arab Dressage Championship for pure Arabians the last October (Elementary) and won the Ridden Crabbet class and came 2nd in the Ridden class at the South East Arab Group Show in April. He is now sold to a Western Riding home.
