Owner/Breeder: Royal Jordanian State Stud.
Strain: Kehailan Ajuz (Freiha).
The Royal Jordanian Equestrian Federation has selected the outstanding World Champion stallion Hlayyil Ramadan as their winner of the 2006 WAHO Trophy for Jordan.
A happy blend of Egyptian and rare old Jordanian lines, with several generations on his female line all bred at the Royal Jordanian State Stud, Hlayyil Ramadan has represented Jordan at the 2002 and 2004 World Championships, he was 2004 European Champion Stallion and is a multi champion stallion in the Middle East and in Europe. Perhaps more importantly, he has won the prestigious Sire Produce award in Jordan and is the sire of quality winning offspring, and his daughters are now themselves proving to be excellent broodmares.
His connections decided to show him in a natural and unstressed way at the 2006 Middle East Championships Show in Amman, thereby making an important statement regarding modern show trends.
