The Finnish Arabian Horse Society has awarded their 2011 WAHO Trophy to the 20-year old broodmare Sheba, who is of predominantly Polish bloodlines.

This outstanding and elegant mare is the only Finnish-born mare in Finland that is AB graded for her offspring. Among others, these include:

  • Shalomon (Finland’s WAHO Trophy winner in 2006) – breeding stallion, also licensed to produce riding ponies in Sweden and warmbloods & riding ponies in Finland.
  • Shaaga – broodmare, B graded for her offspring, and with excellent show results in her own right.
  • Sharongramm – excellent results in international ECAHO shows.

Sheba herself is also a successful show mare and was awarded the 2000 Finnish Champion Mare title with gold medal points. She is a very well deserved winner of the 2011 WAHO Trophy for Finland.
