The sprightly filly Leyah, born on 14 June, is the last foal by Gadebrook's Reserve Futurity Endurance champion Hadiya and out of the leading Egyptian mare Kamillah, winner of the 2013 World Arab Horse trophy for the UK.

She is fast and beautiful and the culmination of a life-long wish to cross pure Crabbet with pure Egyptian.

In fact, Leyah's grandsire Binley Prince Salim, and her dam, Kamillah, stood side by side in the anniversary parade of AHS Premium horses at the Arab National Championships at Malvern in 2011.

Leyah gained Gold in the endurance section of the national Youngstock Futurity Evaluations in August, with excellent marks for movement and conformation.
