Delightful, dainty Palmyra arrived a week early in June 2011. By the 2011 Crabbet stallion champion, Klinta Sultan, she is his first foal and of a very rare pure Crabbet pedigree as her dam, Palma Benay, was imported from Australia and her sire's line is very under-used in the UK.

Palmyra has joined Moonlight Arabian stud as a key component of their pure Crabbet breeding programme. She has the sweetest temperament, boundless energy and encouraging keenness to work with us mortals.

At her first show, as a yearling in 2012, she excelled at the Crabbet show at Equifest winning the Junior Female Championship, the Junior Sport Horse Championship and the Reserve Pure Crabbet championship, handled by Davina Godwin.
