Bay/grey pure Crabbet licensed stallion by Binley Prince Salim x Pevensey Zariffia (imp Australia), born April 2016, died in a freak field accident July 2020.

Tragically, his dam Zariffia suffered a prolapsed colon giving birth to him as he was too large and three weeks late. So at two in the morning with the help of the National Foaling Bank, we located a big Belgium draught mare Blondie. She fostered the orphaned Hadiya brilliantly for which we are very grateful to her owner Wendy Davies.

Hadiya, sire of our three yearlings, gained Gold and was the Leading Three-Year Old in the Endurance section in the 2019 national British Breeding evaluations and won the Reserve Endurance Championship; here with breeder Anne Brown

Hadiya was based with Susan Hawes and her trainer Martin at Nightingale Farm in Sussex. Susan and Hadiya rode out together through Ashdown Forest in preparation for his career under saddle in dressage and endurance.

In addition to gaining Gold at the British Breeding Youngstock Evaluations in 2019, he was awarded the Futurity Trophy by the Crabbet Organisation.

After training Hadiya to the dummy mare and collecting and analysing his semen in spring 2019, AI specialist vet Dr Madeleine Campbell said: "It has been a delight to start Hadiya off on his stud career this season. He is a rare example of a stallion with that optimal combination of fantastic bloodlines, good performance conformation, and an outstandingly pleasant and intelligent temperament. Better still, his semen quality is excellent, as attested to by the pregnancies resulting from the first few inseminations using this lovely young stallion. Congratulations to Gadebrook Arabians for breeding such a fantastic ambassador for the breed".

What a loss, especially as he was free from all known genetic mutations and carried the bay gene, very rare in pure Crabbet Arabians.
