When Qatar invited its Arabian horse breeders to the 23rd Qatar National Arabian Horse Show several Straight Egyptian Arabian horses competed successfully.

The Naseem Al Rashediah daughter Sheihana Al Nasser, out of the Ansata Selman daughter Al Jazi Al Nasser, was awarded Silver Champion Yearling Filly. She traces back to the famed Bint Saida Al Nasser (Bint Samiha – Venus). Bronze winner Hind Al Rayyan is also Straight Egyptian bred. The grey Hind is sired by Ashhal Al Rayyan, who died several years ago, and is out of OR Marjuana, by Frasera Mashar and tracing back to Kübe bred Manaba El Nefous (Bint El Sheikh).

The influence of Ashhal Al Rayyan can also be found in the pedigree of Al Nawasi Studs’ Gold Champion Senior Mare Safira Al Dohul. Her sire Safir Al Rayyan is by Ashhal Al Rayyan and out of RN Farida. On the dam’s side, we see Saja Al Shaqab, sired by unforgettable Al Adeed Al Shaqab and out of Hathja, tracing back to Ansata Nile Mist (Falima – Sabah – El Dahma).
