2004 Bay mare 1.54m SOLD
Sire: Matador (by Drug)
Dam: Muzyka (by Kingsize)
Full pedigree:
Best results: 160 km 3* at Norten-Hardenberg Germany
Performance premium mare of the Dutch Arab studbook (given after at least 3 rides over 120 km)

Shadiya came into Esther’s life in 2009. Esther was looking for a possible broodmare that could also do a decent level of competing. Shadiya was fitting all the bills, though she did not seem to be keen on getting pregnant. Instead, she easily clocked up the distances and progressed each year. Shadiya did not have a speedy recovery, but she was strong and sound and was never vetted out.

She started her FEI rides to help Esther get enough 2* and 3* rides for the Dutch team and was the first horse for Esther to do the illustrious 160 km distance. Though they did not go fast due to missing markers and Shadiya’s slow recovery, they were the only ones to complete the distance.  It was a very special day with a very special finish in the dark. Shadiya is sold to a great home, unfortunately, she has not had any foals yet.

Shadiya’s sire Matador is by Drug, one of the few stallions to excel in both show and racing. And many Drug progenies have done well in endurance. Matador was exported to Iraq and his offspring are doing well in racing, Shadiya’s halfsister Gharraa was the fastest filly in racing for a while.

Granddam  Manana has also raced and is out of outstanding Polish (leased to Tersk)  and Russian lines.

Shadiya’s dam Muzyka came from Tersk Stud Russia to the Netherlands with Shadiya in her womb, she has not produced any other foals. Muzyka was out of Kingsize and Mehanika, again a leased Polish stallion with a Russian dam combination which was popular at Tersk in those days.

Shadiya is inbred to Karinka, the dam of famous Drug but also stallions like Karnaval, Kosmonaut and Shadiya’s other grandsire Kingsize. Karinka is the full sister to Killimanscharo, which makes her even more exciting.
