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. Click HERE
for the clip from the video we sent the evaluators because
of the Covid-19 restrictions, horses could not attend venues in
the flesh in 2020.
