Owner/Breeder: Ralf Heckenbücker.
Strain: Seglawi Jedran of Ibn Soudan (Roga, 1882).
The German Arabian Horse Society awarded their 2010 WAHO Trophy in a well-received public ceremony during the Nations Cup Championships in Aachen. The winner is the talented bay stallion Shakaar Ibn Sanadiva. The 9 year-old, bred and owned by Ralf Heckenbücker, was not only decorated thanks to his own performance in show and sport, but also thanks to his breeding success. He is a multi show champion both in halter and under saddle, and has also competed successfully in dressage.
Among his many titles he has been Reserve German National Champion at halter and has also won 3 European Championships titles at the European Championships for Arabian Sports horses in Stadl-Paura. In 2008 he has achieved the title Classic All Around Champion and one year later he took the same title again plus one title in Classic Pleasure. He has also been Supreme Champion and Gold Medal winner at a VZAP stallion grading.
A son of the renowned Tersk-bred stallion Kubinec and the incomparable broodmare Om El Sanadiva, this full brother to Reserve World Champion and US National Champion stallion FS Bengali has already brought remarkable offspring who have already themselves been decorated as Champions, including Italian National Champion colt FS Al Shabah, and Reserve Italian National Champion colt FS Positano. Another success which must not be overlooked is his Anglo-Arabian filly that has already achieved the foal premium title.
