Registered Name>> Leil Al Shaqab
Barn Name>> Leil
Age>> 10 yrs
Breed>> Egyptian-bred Arabian
Breed Registry>> Qatar Arabian Horse Registry
Coat Colour>> Black
Stable Colour>> Rose Sapphire
Personality>> Top quality breeding and training shows. Leil Al Shaqab is quiet, bombproof, and very mild mannered. He stands patiently on the crossties, doesn't have any noticeable vices, is quick to respond to the aids with only a light touch, and has working brakes. Out in the pasture, he loves galloping and bucking and acts like every bit the prince he is. Apparently, no one has told him that he's a gelding. In general, he's an expressive horse with big movement and a love for treats. The closest thing he has to a vice is begging, but even then, he just stands still and stares intently at people while trying to look handsome. Out with other horses, he likes to be in charge and has been known to squeal at horses who get too close to his food. So far, he hasn't actually managed to kick or bite another horse.
Caution Around>> None
Basic History>> Leil Al Shaqab was born with impressive bloodlines. His sire is Gazal Al Shaqab, one of the most influential modern stallions for international Arabian breeding, and his dam is Rhapsody in Black by Thee Desperado, an acclaimed Straight Egyptian mare. Despite this, Leil Al Shaqab was born as a carrier of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency. As soon as the genetic testing came back with the grim news, he was destined to be gelded.
The colt was raised in a life of luxury. He took well to expert training and proved himself as a solid competitor. As the ribbons piled up, Leil Al Shaqab moved on to competing throughout the Middle East and turning heads in the Gulf Region. He was primarily shown in Show Jumping, but Leil Al Shaqab proved himself as a capable dressage mount working through intermediate levels. Though never officially for sale, Ahmed Al-Kuwari was able to use his connections to purchase the gelding for over half a million USD and had the horse shipped to the United States.
Though never officially shown as a hunter, Leil Al Shaqab always had an attractive jump particularly at lower heights.
