It is time to say Goodbye and Thank You!
All good things have to come to an end, so a few days ago we had to say goodbye and farewell to an exceptional snow white stallion, Moaiz Al Baydaa (Ezz Ezzain x Magda Sakr), proudly bred and owned by Al Baydaa Stud of Egypt. We have a few of our finest mares in foal to him for 2022 foals, so we look forward with great anticipation to seeing these babies in the next few months.
We wish to thank Mr. El Talawy for trusting us with his beloved horse and for letting us use Moaiz for our breeding program. Also, a huge thank you to Raphael Curti for all his help in making our dream come true.

ongratulations to our friend, Guy Zvirin, for breeding this extremely beautiful filly sired by the La Movida stallion Jyar Meia Lua (RFI Maktub x Jiullya El Jamal) out of his mare Zaharula AA. Zaharula AA is one of the last daughters of Laheeb (Imperial Imdal x AK Latifa by Ibn Moniet El Nefous), out of the Michalow Stud bred Zlota Gwiazda, a black-bay daughter of Al Maraam (Imperial Imdal x The Vision HG) and Zlota Ksiega (Ganges x Zatoka by Arbil). Guy created a wonderful breeding program through Zlota Gwiazda and this filly is just one of them.

We are happy to announce that we are finally finding the time to update our website, a project long on our "to do" list. Soon it will have a new look as well as much more information and many more photos of our 2020 and 2021 foals. We ask your indulgence and understanding that this will take a bit more time -- hopefully it will be worth the wait!

At the Sopot Arabian Horse Show, held in Poland at the end of July 2021, the Polish mare Pila (Abyad AA x Piba by Gazal Al Shaqab) placed 1st in her age group and later on was named Gold Champion Mare of the show.
Pila is a daughter of our home-bred stallion Abyad AA (Nader Al Jamal x Al Amal AA by Halim Shah I out of The Vision HG). At just ten months old Abyad was leased by the former director of Janow Podlaski Stud, Mr. Marek Trela, to cross with some of the farm's best mares. He spent a few years in Poland and produced some great foals for Janow Podlaski Stud.
Congratulations to Janow Podlaski Stud, proud breeder and owner of Pila!

It is with much sadness that we share the news of the loss of Bobby Shapiro, our very special and beloved friend, who passed away quietly this weekend.
Bobby was greatly loved and will be remembered for his generous and loyal heart, the strong personal convictions that guided all his actions, his laughter, and his overall vibrancy and joyous passion for life. His undying devotion to his family and friends and his many contributions to Israeli agriculture are remarkable in themselves.
We of the Arabian horse community especially recall Bobby's passionate and energetic dedication to the establishment and continued promotion of the Arabian horse in Israel.
For more than four decades Bobby was both a private breeder and active advocate for the breed in Israel, and he also became a strong ambassador for Israeli breeders among Arabian horse communities abroad.
He remained through out an energetic member of the Israel Arab Horse Society, especially focused on continuing the education of all Society members about the Arabian horse. His work to build enduring ties among all of Israel's various ethnic communities through their common love of the Arabian horse are still appreciated and will not be soon forgotten.
An extraordinary personality and unforgettable individual, Bobby's lasting legacy and personal example are still strongly felt by all who knew him and he will be sorely missed.
May his memory remain a blessing.

Congratulations to Nayla Hayek and Hanaya Arabian Stud. So happy Nabilah is doing well for you!

Our young filly, Sarai AA, was shown last weekend at the Elran Cup Show in Belgium. It was her first show ever. Unfortunately, the weather in Belgium was not so friendly and it was raining most of the time. Nevertheless, Sarai handled it well; she was 1st in her age group and then in the championship named Silver Champion Filly. A great result for the first show of this filly.
Sarai is a daughter of the La Movida stallion Jyar Meia Lua, out of our mare Safiyyah AA (Laheeb x Saniyyah RCA). She was shown beautifully by Raphael Curti.
We wish to thank Raphael and the whole Privilege Arabians team for all the work and care they gave our filly.

On his way home... We received some great news from Belgium: after a very long trip and a long stay at quarantine in Mauritius, our junior stallion, Shams Al Dine AA, landed safely in Europe. Shams Al Dine (Shams Sharav AA x Raliya by Laheeb) is returning from almost a three year lease to the great breeding program of Lisa & Willie Brown, of the famous Elkasun Arabian Stud in South Africa. We wish to thank Lisa & Willie for choosing this young stallion to be part of their unique breeding program and looking forward to seeing his foals grow up. Shams Al Dine will be standing at Privilege Arabians for a few weeks and then will come back home.

At the 2021 Sentower Diamond Trophy 2021 (European Show), held yesterday in Belgium, the yearling filly Moriah De Cartherey, was 1st in her class and named Silver Champion Junior Filly. Shown by Mr. Tom Oben. Moriah De Cartherey is a daughter of Marion out of our mare Fadwa AA (Fadi Al Shaqab x Doniya Jamal by Nader Al Jamal), she is bred and owned by Antoine and Chantal Rigat of De Cartherey Arabians, from France.
Fadwa was leased to De Cartherey Arabians for one year and she left them two beautiful fillies. Congratulations, guys! We are so happy for you!



May 2021
Our junior stallion, Shaheen AA (Al Ayal AA x Saniyyah RCA) started his 2021 European show campaign yesterday, at the International B Show L'Arte Del Cavalla 2021 in Italy. Shaheen was shown beautifully by Mr. Giacomo Capacci and was 1st in his class with 92.63 points, including three scores of 20. Later that day he was awarded the title of unanimous Gold Champion Stallion.
This was in actuality against all odds....
For those of you who are not familiar with the story of this young straight Egyptian stallion, let me tell you a bit about this brave horse, and the wonderful people who helped him to arrive to where he is today: At ten months old Shaheen was leased by the AlBaydaa Stud in Egypt. Just four weeks before he was to take off to Europe he suffered a severe accident which resulted in a broken back leg. Raphael Curti had so much faith in this colt that he insisted that the lease not be broken. After months of rehabilitation in Israel and later on in Belgium his leg was finally rehabilitated and brought back to full usage.
Raphael and the Privilege team remained absolutely devoted to making sure that Shaheen would recuperate quickly and return to the show ring. And so he did, and with great success. Shaheen was shown in Europe with great results which included the titles of Gold Champion Junior Colt at the Bruges International Show and Silver Champion Yearling Colt at the European Egyptian Event, Germany.
Following this two year lease Shaheen returned home to begin his career as a breeding stallion. He had a great group of mares waiting for him in Israel and produced some amazing foals, proving that he is not just another good show horse, but a great sire as well. When Giacomo arrived in Israel he simply fell in love with Shaheen and asked us to allow him to show him. Giacomo had shown Shaheen's sire, Al Ayal AA, in Paris in 2018 and done a spectacular job with him, so it seems perfectly fitting to let him handle Shaheen as well.
Last weekend was their first time together in the show ring, and it ended well.

Some mares are like hidden diamonds... One of these is our Laheeb daughter Safiyyah AA, a timid mare who is always hiding behind our other mares, but who has become one of our best producers ever. Born in 2010, Safiyyah is a rare daughter of Laheeb out of Saniyyah RCA (Mishaal HP x My Shooting Star by The Desperado).
Safiyyah gave us some beautiful daughters that we have retained as future broodmares for our breeding program, including Sajida AA (by Al Ayal AA) and Sinaya AA (by Frasera Mashar), both of whom were shown with great success. In 2020 she gave us the fantastic grey filly Sarai AA by Brazilian bred stallion Jyar Meia Lua. This year she blessed us with a breathtaking grey filly by Emerald J, which we named Sarah AA.
So, please don't overlook the hidden diamonds. Sometimes they turn out to be the most valuable of them all and the very essence of your breeding program...

We wish to inform that our junior stallion Bariq Al Mas AA is being leased by the handler Adham Atalla and will stand at stud at his training barn in Yarka.
Bariq Al Mas is a beautiful young horse by the Brazilian-bred stallion Jyar Meia Lua (RFI Maktub x Jiullya El Jamal by Al Jamal), bred by the legendary breeder Lenita Perroy, and proudly owned by Ferdinand & Gerlinde Huemer of La Movida Arabians in Austria.
The dam of Bariq Al Mas is the oldest daughter of The Vision HG, Al Baraqai AA, sired by the multi champion stallion Baahir, a direct son of Ibn El Mareekh out of G.F. Nasra Bataa by Ansata El Nasrany. Al Baraqai AA, who will celebrate her 21st birthday in a few days, has had a huge impact on our breeding program. To name just a few of her progeny will not be easy but here is a very short list: Basmah AA, Balqis AA, Baraaqa AA (Dam of Baha AA & Badriyah AA), Bosmat AA, Badriyah AA & the 2019 World Champion Straight Egyptian Colt Baahir AA.
Bariq is a young horse with a great future ahead of him. He has the quality, conformation, movement and extreme type needed to be a great sire. We wish Adham Atalla a lot of success with Bariq Al Mas AA.

Elisa Grassi sent these pictures of AJ Kayya, proudly bred and owned by Ajman Stud, an ultra-beautiful filly by the young sire AJ KAFU (Shanghai EA x Aj Kahayla by QR Marc) and out of Aja Caprice (by EKS Alihandro).
AJ Kafu is on lease to us for the 2021/22 breeding seasons and we are looking forward to next year to see his foals from our mares. His breeding is only available in Israel throughout his stay with us, and no breedings will be available in the future after he leaves the country.

The 2nd filly of this year has now arrived. She had a few tough days but is doing well now. A SE filly with great bloodlines by the Al Baydaa Stud stallion Moaiz Al Baydaa (Ezz Ezzain x Magda Sakr by Tallahsman) out of Nile Maha AA (Ansata Nile Pharaoh x Malikah AA by Laheeb). We are looking forward to seeing this beautiful filly grow up and take part in our breeding program next to her mom and her half sister Nile Massa AA.

We wish to congratulate Mr. Salman Basha from Daliyat Al Carmel, for leasing our young Straight Egyptian colt Adnan AA. This beautiful horse has royal and rare bloodlines.
He is by Kenz Al Baydaa, one of Hanaya Stud's most treasured stallions, bred by the world famous Al Baydaa Stud from Egypt. Kenz Al Baydaa represents the powerful sire line of Nazeer through perhaps the most dynamic producing son of Ansata Halim Shah, Ansata Hejazi. Kenz's priceless and solid Babson dam line to the influential mare Sabrah has been brought forward through the layering of Glorieta Arabians bloodlines, representing the superior program of Mike and Kiki Case in America, along with a peppering of Darla Bryant breeding, to Ansata, to Imperial Egyptian Stud, then Omar Sakr and of course to the current day program of Al Baydaa. Kenz's dam, Kareema Sakr, is one of the most revered and respected Egyptian beauties on the globe today - her beauty and exquisite type not only ethereal but rather haunting in the most delicate and elusive way.
Adnan's dam is the beautiful mare Atiq Adara, bred and owned by Idan Atiq Arabian Stud. She is a rare daughter of the German bred stallion Al Ayad (Moheeb x Al Mamunah by Maysoun). Al Ayad is a blend of some of the best and most classic "old" German breeding, lines which are becoming more and more difficult to find today in SE breeding. His sire, Moheeb, traces to one of the breed's finest mares, Moheba II (Ghazal x Malacha), of the Farida branch of the El Dahma family. His dam, Al Mamunah, is a Maysoun daughter sold to the Middle East. Al Mamunah is Hadban Enzahi by strain, tracing back tail female to the root mare Venus, bred by the Shammar Bedouin.
Atiq Adara's dam is the Champion mare Alhambra B, bred by the Babolna Stud in Hungary and chosen and imported by Idan Atiq as a young filly as a future foundation mare. She was sired by one of the breed's most important sires, Salaa Al Dine (Ansata Halim Shah x Hanan), bred by Dr. Nagel of Germany. His dam, Hanan, was a game-changer for Straight Egyptian breeding, and is one of the most important Arabian mares of all time. Among her great progeny you can find several direct sons who served as head sires including Ibn Galal I (by Ibn Galal, head sire at the Babolna Stud), Asfour (by Malik, head sire of Simeon Stud), Jamill (by Madkour I, head sire at both Ansata Stud & Katharinenhof Stud). Salaa El Dine was Hanan's youngest son and was the most important sire of DR. Nagel's long and influential breeding program. Alhambra B traces back in tail-female to the RAS bred mare Bint Zareefa, a daughter of Balance and Zareefa, who traces to the very valuable Egyptian foundation mare Bint El Bahreyn, born in 1898, of the Dahman Shahwan strain.
Adnan AA, will be a great future addition to our breeding as he offers, through the unique pedigrees of both his sire and dam, rare and valuable and bloodlines that have proven important to our breeding program.

he first foal this year is a beautiful filly by Emerald J (QR Marc x Emandoria) out of Damdiyah AA. Damdiyah is a daughter of the champion-maker Ajman Moniscione out of our home-bred mare Dafina AA (Al Bilal x Dumka). Dumka is a Laheeb daughter bred at Michalow Stud in Poland; in 2001 we chose her for our breeding program out of all the Laheeb daughters born at Michalow the year before. Dumka is the first horse we ever added to our breeding program from our long cooperation with the two Polish Studs, and she certainly created a dynasty of her own at Ariela Arabians through her Al Bilal (Al Maraam x Bahiha) daughter Dafina AA. The new filly is a full sister to Darine AA, born last year and she is all what we were hoping for from this cross.
