Champion, and she produced a string of beauties including the popular stallion Shael Dream Desert (by Ansata Shaamis). Hadidi’s daughter Hadishana out of the American-bred SOA Shoshanna, won Champion Mare at the 2007 Cinisi ECAHO show. Other champion get and grandget followed elsewhere.
         What makes such a special horse? What lineage brings forth such a noble and compelling individual? Hadidi’s pedigree is quite fascinating relative to his Egyptian contemporaries. His sire *Norus was bred by the renowned Weil-Marbach Stud in Germany. *Norus is a son of Gharib (Anter x Souhair), the noble black stallion from Egypt whose quality was apparent in numerous performers sired by him at the stallion licensing trials in Germany. Gharib was also sire of endurance winners. He was valued for his powerful, fluid motion, and overall athletic ability. *Norus’s dam was the lovely Noha (Hadban Enzahi x Nadja). Noha was also dam of the champion producing Qatari mare RN Farida (by Salaa El Dine). Noha is remembered for her lovely large eyes associated with the Nefisa female line. Noha was actually 87 percent of the same breeding that produced the legendary sire El Hilal (*Ansata Ibn Halima x *Bint Nefisaa). How is this so?

Something often overlooked is that Hadban Enzahi was a three-quarter brother to *Ansata Ibn Halima, while Nadja was a full sister to *Bint Nefisaa. *Norus sired many- times dressage, show hack, and hunter champion performer Noribba (x *Ghariba).
         Hadidi’s dam Hebet Allah (*Morafic x *Soheir II) was already a popular Gleannloch show mare having won U.S. National Champion Futurity and Canadian National Top Ten mare as well as other championships. A prolific mare, her produce were in demand internationally, with one daughter being exported to Argentina, two sons to Chile, and of course Hadidi went to Italy. At age 23, Hebet Allah was exported to Saudi Arabia. It is worth noting that Hebet Allah is a daughter of *Morafic and out of a mare of the same Zareefa- Bint El Bahreyn female line as *Bint Maisa El Saghira, and we know that this famous combination of families is what created the legendary Shaikh Al Badi.
         An overview of Hadidi’s pedigree reveals that it comprises a series of Nazeer get crossed together for several generations, up until the point of Gharib’s being introduced to the sire line of the pedigree. Gharib is without Nazeer in his pedigree and of the tail male line to Ibn Rabdan, rather
