*EL NABILA B

*EL NABILA B is a masterpiece of breeding from Hungary’s Babolna Stud, known for its superb straight Egyptian horses who are noted for their great refinement, overall elegance and extravagant movement. With a stroke of genius, Tamas Rombauer, the Director of Babolna, decided to outcross some of the straight Egyptian Babolna mares with the supreme Russian stallion KUBINEC, although Egyptian outcrosses are usually done through Egyptian stallions. This nick resulted in 1997 Wels Austria Junior Champion Colt MALIK B, and *EL NABILA B, a champion on three continents.

*EL NABILA B has proven his quality in the show ring in Europe, South America and North America. His European titles include two regional championships in Germany in 2000 as well as second in his age class at the Nations Cup and European Championships. In 2001, he was named the Kreuth International Reserve Champion Stallion and won a gold medal at the German Stallion Licensing Show. He was then exported to Brazil, where he was named the 2004 Brazilian National Champion Stallion. After coming to the USA in 2006 as an aged stallion, *EL NABILA B has been named 2006 Region 1 Champion Stallion, 2007 Scottsdale Top Ten in his age group, and won his Arabian Breeders Cup age class in 2009 at age 13.

*EL NABILA B has been as impressive a sire as he is a show horse, with winners on multiple continents. He has sired winners in all the countries in which he has stood at stud. His German born daughter CARMEN GAZIYAH won the Junior Championship at the Strohen Show in 2004. His Brazilian born daughter LLAYA has been a Middle East and Dubai International Top Five Filly with multiple class wins or second places at significant shows in the Middle East. Other outstanding *EL NABILA B get born in Brazil include Brazilian National Champion Junior Junior Colt TM ELBILA, Uruguay National Champion Young Stallion FYNT SERONDELLA, Brazilian National Champion Junior Filly *SASHAA LHT (who won her class at Scottsdale after importation to the USA), Brazilian National Champion Western Pleasure Junior Horse *HSE NOELANI (also a western pleasure junior horse champion in America), and FARENHEIT GAT, who has multiple halter wins in Brazil and a second place in his class at the Egyptian International Show. *EL NABILA B’s American offspring were first eligible to show in 2008, and include the regional halter winner ARIA DELPHINE and multi-regional halter winner NABILAS FANTASY.

*EL NABILA B’s sire, the Russian-born KUBINEC, won the “triple crown” of European show competition for Arabians by being named Nations Cup Champion Stallion, European Champion Stallion and World Champion Stallion at the Salon Du Cheval in Paris. Through 2008, he has sired over 25 national or international champions, among them KORONEC (Nations Cup, European and World Junior Champion Colt and Middle East Reserve Champion Stallion) and *FS BENGALI (Nations Cup and World Reserve Junior Champion Colt and U.S. National Champion Stallion and sire of National Champions in Europe and America). *EL NABILA B is one of only two KUBINEC sons in North America (the other is Canadian Top Ten Futurity Colt SPAGO WA).

KUBINEC’s sire, BALATON, is a European Champion and Dutch National Champion Stallion. He was named “the Horse of the Century” by Tersk State Stud Director Alexander Ponomarev, and he lived up to the promise of that designation with his many champion get. He is also the sire of the extraordinary racehorse SAMBIST, who won all 5 of Russia’s classic races and went on to win 13 major races in Europe and the Middle East. He retired to stud in England, where he was named the UK’s Racehorse Sire of the Year five times. KUBINEC’s dam KOSMETIKA also produced his full sister, Qatar International Champion Mare KABARDINKA.

KUBINEC is a grandson of two major Russian icons: *MENES and U.S. and Canadian National Champion Stallion *MUSCAT. The cross of *MENES on a *MUSCAT daughter has produced U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Futurity Filly G MENATIN, to U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Western Pleasure Junior Horse and National winner sire G SILK BOY, and to multi-National Champion in hunt pleasure METROPOLITAN+/. *MENES is the sire of 15 North American National winners including U.S. Reserve National Champion Futurity Filly PARADA, U.S. National Champion Futurity Colt EMPERATOR, U.S. National Champion Western Pleasure Junior Horse and Canadian Top Ten Futurity Colt SEPTER, Canadian National Champion Hunt Pleasure RA CHEYENNE+/, AMEDEUS+/ (who has 9 National wins in English pleasure and native costume), and multiple National Champion in western pleasure ALIBI EF. *MENES is also the sire of European Reserve National Champion Stallion MEDALJ, and British National Champion Stallion GONORAR. 14 *MENES get have produced North American National winners. *MENES is a paternal brother to U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Stallion and National Champion sire *PESNIAR and to U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Mare *POZNAN, dam of NDL PERICLES+/, who has won more National titles than any other Arabian. *MENES’ dam is a full sister to the dam of *MUSCAT. *MUSCAT, has sired over 200 champions and 55 North American National winners, including U.S. National Champion Mare AMBER SATIN and National Champions in western pleasure, reining and hunt pleasure. 78 of his get have produced North American National winners through 2008.

KUBINEC’s granddams are both excellent producers. PANAGIA, the dam of BALATON, also produced American champion producer *POMONA and *PRINCIP, sire of North American National winners in show hack, country pleasure and western pleasure and of the multi-stakes winning racehorse BW RASPUTIN+/. PANAGIA is a full sister to *PALUBA, dam of race winner and successful racehorse sire RD FIVE STAR. PANAGIA is by ASWAN, sire of U.S. National Champion Stallion and National Champion sire *MARSIANIN and grandsire of U.S. National Champion Stallion *PADRON. PANAGIA is out of *PUSTINIA, a full sister to PALMIRA (dam of Dutch National Champion Stallion PELENG and U.S. Top Ten Mares *PRISTAN and *POZNAN, all National winner producers). *PUSTINIA is also a maternal sister to National winner producers PESNIA (dam of U.S. Top Ten Stallion and National Champion sire *PESNIAR), *PARK (sire of U.S. Top Ten Half-Arabian English Pleasure PIFATA), and *PARKETNAIA (dam of Canadian National Chanmpion Western Pleasure and National Champion sire NAMASKAR).

KUBINEC’s maternal granddam, *KARTA, also produced German Reserve National Champion Stallion KILIMANJARO, an international sire of champions including U.S. and Canadian Reserve National Champion Mare and National winner producer *PENALBA and of *KILIFA, second dam of U.S. Reserve National Champion Stallion and National Champion sire PADRONS PSYCHE.

*EL NABILA B is out of the ethereal straight Egyptian 218 ELF LAYLA WALAYLA B, one of Europe’s most decorated show mares. Her titles include 1998 Marbach Senior Champion Mare and Kauber Platte Champion Mare, 1998 World Reserve Champion Mare, European Reserve Champion Mare and Nations Cup Reserve Champion Mare, 2003 Egyptian Event Europe Supreme Champion Mare, and 2004 Swiss National Champion Mare. She is the dam of 2 National winners, as her son HANAYA BARIQH is the 2006 Spanish National Champion Stallion. 218 ELF LAYLA WALAYLA B is linebred to the great mare HANAN, to whom her sire traces in tail female and to whom her dam’s sire traces in tail female.

ELF LAYLA WALAYLA’s sire ASSAD also sired the 2008 British National Champion Mare ZEE ZEE TOP. He was bred by the outstanding German breeder Dr Hans Nagel, who worked in close cooperation with the Babolna Stud and helped facilitate their imports from Egypt’s El Zahraa Stud as well as developing their straight Egyptian program. ASSAD is a 3/4 brother to SALAA EL DINE, who is by the same sire and out of ASSAD’s maternal granddam. SALAA EL DINE is a noted sire in Europe whose get include Qatar International Champion Mare RN FARIDA, German Reserve National Champion Stallion FAY SABUN, twice World Reserve Champion Stallion CRUSADER and 2005 Scottsdale Second Place Mare 8 & Over and Egyptian Event Reserve Supreme Champion Mare *ASRA SALAA. SALAA EL DINE is the paternal grandsire of European and World Champion Stallion and National Champion sire HLAYYIL RAMADAN.

ASSAD’s sire is the magnificent U.S. Top Ten Futurity Colt ANSATA HALIM SHAH, whose get have been recognized for their superb quality worldwide. To name just a few--Qatar National Champion Mare ANSATA SELKET, Qatar International Champion Mare and National Champion producer ANSATA MAJESTA Argentine National Champion Mare ANSATA TABITHA, Qatar Reserve Champion Mare AISHA (a 3/4 sister to SALAA EL DINE), Nations Cup Reserve Champion Stallion EL THAY MANSOUR, German Reserve National Champion Stallion and National Champion sire MAYSOUN and German Reserve National Champion Stallion and National Champion sire EL THAY IBN HALIM SHAH. Perhaps ANSATA SHAH HALIM's best son is World Champion Stallion and Egyptian Event Supreme Champion Stallion *AL ADEED AL SHAQAB, also a National Champion sire. ANSATA HALIM SHAH's sire, three times U.S. Top Ten Stallion *ANSATA IBN HALIMA++, is the only imported Egyptian stallion to sire both a U.S. National Champion Stallion (ANSATA IBN SUDAN) and Mare (FA HALIMA). *ANSATA IBN HALIMA++ is also the sire of the all time leading Egyptian sire of champions, EL HILAL. ASSAD’s dam ARUSSA also produced AMEER, who was also used at Babolna as a sire.

ARUSSA is a full sister to U.S. Top Ten Stallion *JAMILLL (sire of World Champion Mare and National Champion producer TIFFAHA, IMPERIAL MISTILL (dam of 3 National winners), Brazilian National Champion Mare KAPRIOLE, Denmark International Reserve Champion Stallion and National Champion sire ANSATA NILE PASHA and grandsire of Nations Cup Junior Champion Filly and twice Egyptian Event Supreme Champion Mare *ZT SHAKJAMARA).

ARUSSA is by German National Champion Stallion and National Champion sire MADKOUR I, a paternal brother to National Champion producer *SANACHT (for many years the breed’s leading dam of champions with 12 to her credit). ARUSSA is out of the treasured mare HANAN, whose blood is not common in America and whose record as a dam and granddam of international winners is peerless. Her offspring include SALAA EL DINE, AMEERA (dam of Swedish Reserve National Champion Stallion and National Champion sire SHAHIN), U.S. Top Ten Stallion *JAMILLL (already mentioned), ASFOUR (sire of Australian National Champion Stallion and World Reserve National Champion Stallion SIMEON SADIK, 1997 Swedish Reserve National Champion Stallion SIMEON SHEMINI, Australian National Champion Mares SIMEON SUKARI and SIMEON SALOME), IBN GALAL I (sire of U.S. Top Ten Mare *IBN GALAL 1-7), etc. Other notable linebred HANAN horses besides ELF LAYLA WALAYLA include SHAHIN (already mentioned), and SAFIR (leading sire in Qatar for 3 successive years with get like. Middle East Champion Colt HACHO and Middle East Champion Filly NAJMAT AL SHAQAB, Qatar Junior Champion Colt WAHAJ AL SHAQAB, Middle East Reserve Champion Stallion and Qatar National Champion Stallion SAFI AL SHAQAB, and twice Qatar International Reserve Champion Stallion ASHAL AL RAYYAN, also a National Champion sire.), etc. HANAN is one of 12 National winner producers sired by the great NAZEER son ALAA EL DIN, also a sire of National winners in halter and performance.

218 ELF LAYLA WALAYLA B is out of 223 IBN GALAL 1-13, a paternal sister to U.S. Top Ten Mare *IBN GALAL 1-7 and to IBN GALAL I-8, dam of 1994 World Reserve Junior Champion Filly AL HARIMBA . She is by IBN GALAL I, whose sire IBN GALAL also sired Australian National Champion Mare 27 IBN GALAL 5, the maternal granddam of U.S. and Canadian National Champion Stallion and World Champion Stallion *SIMEON SHAI+. IBN GALAL was a 3//4 brother to U.S. Reserve National Champion Mare and multi-National performance winner *NAHLAH++. IBN GALAL I is out of the phenomenal producer HANAN, already discussed.

223 IBN GALAL I-3 is out of 23 GHALION-2. Her sire *GHALION EAO (known as GHALION at Babolna) was imported to the US at age 19 and sired a small group of get there but later returned to Germany where he died in 1991 at age 26. He spent most of his stud career in Hungary and Germany. *GHALION EAO is by *MORAFIC, sire of 30 National winners and 39 producers of National winners. *GHALION EAO is a maternal brother to *SULTANN, the only Egyptian stallion imported to America to sire 3 National Champions in performance: U.S. National Champion Sidesaddle and Reserve National Champion Native Costume *MANZOURA, *SAKR+++ (14 National wins including multiple National Championships in park and native costume), and U.S. National Champion Stallion and English Pleasure *ASADD++ . Both *SAKR+++ and *ASADD++ are National Champion sires. *GHALION EAO is also a maternal brother to *SAFAA, dam of U.S. Reserve National Champion Futurity Filly and Top Ten Western Pleasure MUZAHRAFA++ and U.S. Top Five Futurity Colt and National winner sire AL FATTAH, both 3/4 siblings to *GHALION EAO as they are by *MORAFIC.
23 GHALION-3 is out of 6 EL AZIZA, a paternal sister to National winner sire *ZAGHLOUL (also found close up in the pedigree of leading Egyptian sire and U.S. Reserve National Champion Stallion THEE DESPERADO) and to SABEEL, sire of National winner sire *LANCER’S SAHM. 6 EL AZIZA’s dam ZABIA also produced the noted black stallion *ADHEM, who appears close up in the ancestry of a number of National winning sporthorse competitors.

Very excellent read as always Arlene!! Well done.

Having never seen Nabila in person, I am curious if he possesses the snort and blow and show-off attitude that so many of Kubinec's off spring are noted for?

I saw him in Vegas this year and he was really pretty but I did not feel he was in show shape and it was distracting... His body was muscled well but his tail was shorter like it had been chewed off or something. He looked like he had come straight from the breeding shed. I just looked at his website and he doesn't have much mane or tail. I wonder if it hereditary or he is rubbing it off...

Well, for a horse not in show shape, he won his class, and certainly generated quite a bit of interest! He is thirteen years old. I do not even think that he is showing his age, though.

I am not certain what has happened with his tail, but who cares? As long as he is not carrying it wry, the length should be of no issue.

Oh well - I guess everyone has their own opinion.

Wonderful analysis Arlene. Doen't Sax Arabians in Germany also have a Balaton son?

I saw him at the North's open house and he indeed has plenty of snort and blow. If that is what ya want, no problem there.

I thought he was ###### gorgeous and a great mover. Big and masculine but pretty too. I love his sire too.

Thanks for the compliment on the analysis. Your mare's will look just as nice <smile>

Meshan Ibn Kubinec is indeed at Sax Arabians, but he is a Kubinec son like *El Nabila B, not a Balaton son (I'm assuming you meant a Kubinec son anyway). He is chestnut like Kubinec but with a lot less white, possibly because he is also double *Menes, who is known for minimizing white (*Menes is the sire of his dam). Here in Europe Kubinec is controversial with some breeders-they love his type, movement and charisma, but don't care for all the white he can sire.

Wish I could see *El Nabila in person. His video gives me goosebumps. I do plan to visit my mother in Florida this year and since he's now at Rohara, which is also in Florida, I have a better chance of seeign him now than when he was at Byatt's.

This is pretty much how I would describe the other Kubinec son that I have seen.....Very impressive in action!! I would have the same concern for both in choosing a mare for them so I guess that is consistent and possibly predictable for the Kubinec line as well.

Yes, Kubinec that's what I meant!! (Wine with dinner last night.) I've been very intrigued by every photo of him/his get. I don't mind the white on a performance horse; if the horse can sire trainable riding horses I would be very interested indeed. I'll be needing a little prettier head when I breed my "old" Polish-looking Lodestar mare one day, and she has next to nil white anyway.

I saw an awful lot of Magnum and Sir Famess stuff (and they were quite pretty) at that open house and when they presented Nabila, almost as an afterthought, I was floored. The contrast could not have been more stark. Veeery different animal. I'm afraid these days many Arabians strike me as "cute" which is not what I'm looking for in a horse. This looked like a warhorse. He looks so uphill in the one photo of him trotting, I don't know why he couldnt do/sire dressage or working western very well. It would not kill the sporthorse side of the industry to incorporate a little more type, either. I fear ten years from now all the sporthorses will look like tiny warmbloods. Handsome and useful but like French racehorses, not very typey.
I think I need to go learn more about these bloodlines.

Very educational post this has been!
