Gadebrook is privileged to have acquired the versatile straight Egyptian mare Kamillah, winner of the World Arabian Horse Organization trophy for 2013 for her athletic achievements. Kamillah has won in hand and under saddle – including the Pairs Class at the Arab Championship Show.

As a seven-year old in 2011, Kamillah was the first – and only - pure Arab mare to tackle the tough two-day National Stallion Test and gained a Grade 1, so she carries the title of ‘AHS Premium Performance Mare’.

She had a successful career in endurance with her breeder Judy Philips, winning the Max Shield for the Reserve Novice Championship in 2012. With junior rider India Duke, she developed into an impressive eventing mare, winning the Arab Horse Society’s Franzara Cup a number of times She has been ridden side-saddle and competed in show-jumping and dressage. Kamillah’s elegance and beauty come from a line of distinguished champions with several crosses to the renowned Nazeer. She herself bred a colt in 2017, Kamar Ibn Muhaned (by Muhaned al Rayyan) , the Cornwall County Show Champion as a two-year old, in 2019.
