MOUFIRA LHF ‘s unusual heritage qualifies him as both an Al Khamsa and Sheykh Obeyd horse. His bloodlines combine the best of Pritzlaff and Doyle breeding. Richard Pritzlaff, an artist himself, based his breeding program on the Egyptian/Blunt mare RABANNA (a granddaughter of *NASR) Babson Egyptian lines, and his own imports from Egypt in 1958 which included *RASHAD IBN NAZEER, *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS, *BINT NEFISA, *BINT DAHMA and *BINT EL BATAA, all of whom appear in MOUFIRA LHF’s ancestry. Pritzlaff bred RABANNA to the Doyle stallion GHADAF twice and the resultant offspring left significant influence in the Pritzlaff herd which can also be seen in MOUFIRA LHF’s ancestry. His heritage brings in more of the Doyle blood through his paternal grandsire GREGGAN (who lived to be 30 years old), who has four lines to GHADAF. The Doyle program was founded with GHADAF and the mare GULIDA, parents of the outstanding endurance mare BINT GULIDA owned by Linda Tellington-Jones. The Doyle stallion BLARNEY (who has 3 lines each to GHADAF and GULIDA) was a 1980 U.S. Top Ten Endurance winner. Pritzlaff did not believe in showing his horses as he did not want them show groomed with facial hair removed, but horses descended from his program have won regional and National titles in the show ring. Both the Pritzlaff and Doyle horses are noted for their excellent records in endurance competition. Pritzlaff’s foundatiom mare RABANNA is a maternal granddaughter of the Egyptian import *NASR, who sired BANDOS, winner of the 1955 and 1956 Tevis Cup Endurance Ride, considered the toughest in the United States.

MOUFIRA LHF has 8 lines to *RASHAD IBN NAZEER, 5 to GHADAF, 3 to RABANNA and 3 to *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS. This makes him closely related to a number of recent endurance horses with exceptional records. OT SAURI RSI has 6 lines to *RASHAD IBN NAZEER, 4 to *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS, 3 to RABANNA and 1 to GHADAF. Her endurance record is 2,840 miles in 51 rides, with 51 completions and 2 Best Conditions. OT DYTU RSI has 2,845 miles in 56 rides with 55 completions and 2 Best Condition awards. He has 4 lines to *RASHAD IBN NAZEER, 4 to *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS, and 3 to RABANNA. Another notable endurance competitor, OT ALTATU RSI, has 2,430 miles in 43 rides, 41 completions and 2 Best Conditions. She has 4 lines to *RASHAD IBN NAZEER, 3 to *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS and one each to GHADAF and RABANNA. The gelding OT MONIET NESSOUS has 3200 miles in 57 rides with 54 completions and 17 Best Condition titles. He has 5 lines to *RASHAD IBN NAZEER and 2 each to *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS and RABANNA. Another endurance horse with Pritzlaff breeding is DYMONI RSI, who has 4 lines apiece to *RASHAD IB NAZEER and *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS and 2 lines apiece to GHADAF and RABANNA. He has 3,280 miles in 66 rides with 61 completions and 16 Best Condition awards. Another highly successful Pritzlaff bred endurance competitor is the stallion DRKUMO RSI, winner of the AERC’s 1996 Jim Jones award for Best Endurance Stallion. He has 2540 competition miles in 47 rides with 45 completions. His pedigree features 2 lines apiece to *RASHAD IBN NAZEER, *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS and RABANNA and a line to GHADAF. MOUFIRA LHF thus is closely related to many athletes who have proven their abilities in endurance racing, one of the best tests of conformation, soundness and heart for horses.

MOUFIRA LHF is by MOUSSA LHF, a son of the Doyle stallion GREGGAN, the paternal grandsire of GHAY LASSA, dam of the successful endurance horse RBF SUPER SPORT, who has 3055 ride miles in 60 rides, with 54 completions and 6 Best Condition awards. GREGGAN also appears in the pedigree of the 3/4 Doyle mare RBF SASSAFRAS (a GHAY LASSA daughter), dam of Region 16 Endurance Champion RBF AARISTOTLE. GREGGAN has 4 lines to GHADAF and 5 to GULIDA. GULNARA, a daughter of GHADAF and GULIDA, produced SERG, sire of 1982 and 1983 U.S. Top Ten Half-Arabian Park and 1986 U.S. Top Ten Half-Arabian Park AOTR LM CAT DANCING and maternal grandsire of 1977 U.S. Top Ten Pleasure Driving MIRA-FINISZ and of National winner sire BASK FANFARE.

Her sire, RASMON NEFOUS RSI, is by 1979 Region 11 Western Pleasure Champion TOMONIET RSI, a 3/4 brother to National winner producer TATUMI RSI (dam of U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Gelding JM TAMAL).

TATUMI RSI is the maternal granddam of halter champion HIA TAMASIL, dam of three times Region 2 Top Five Endurance HIA TAYYARAN+ (also a ribbon winner in cutting). RASMON NEFOUS RSI is out of TATUTWO RSI, also a 3/4 sibling to National winner producer TATUMI RSI. TATUTWO RSI is the maternal granddam of the good endurance horses OT ALTATU RSI, OT DYTU RSI and DYMONI RSI, already mentioned.

NASR SURPRISE RSI is out of NASZUMI RSI. She is by native costume reserve champion and regional winner sire UMI (also sire of TOMONIET RSI and TATUMI RSI as well as ALMONIET RSI, sire of the endurance horses OT MONIET NESSOUS and OT ALTATU RSI). UMI is a 3/4 brother to park reserve champion RADAHM RSI and to western pleasure champion ALSAREEI RSI. He is a son of SHIKO IBN SHEIKH, a proven sire of winners on the show ring and the endurance trail. SHIKO IBN SHEIKH is the sire of the first FEI World Champion Endurance winners, SHIKOS OMAR, who won his title in 1986. SHIKO IBN SHEIKH is also the paternal grandsire of RO GRAND SULTAN+//, one of the all time great endurance competitors. He was three times in succession the FEI World Endurance Champion (1988,1990, and 1992), won the Tevis Cup in 1984 and 1988 and competed 9,605 miles in his career, with 145 rides, 143 completions and 46 Best Condition awards.

His grandget include multi-National Champion western pleasure, western sidesaddle and trail RASHAWNA+//, multi-National Champion Working Cow Horse and Reining and National Champion sire ALLA FIRE+/, multi-National Champion Park Horse AEQUUS+/, etc. NASR SURPRISE RSI has two lines to SHIKO IBN SHEIKH, thus giving her a double dose of this proven athletic blood.

MOUFIRA LHF is out of ORFIRA RSI. She is by MONIETOR RSI, a full brother to DYMONIET (sire of the excellent endurance horse DRKUMO RSI and grandsire of the good endurance horse OT SAURI RSI, already mentioned) and also to MONIETA RSI, paternal granddam of the endurance horses DYMONI RSI, OT MONIET NESSOUS, and OT ALTATU RSI, already discussed.

His dam *BINT MONIET EL NEFOUS produced 5 champions (the other one is western pleasure champion SIR WHITE MOON).

ORFIRA RSI is out of ORFISA RSI. Her sire ORIN RSI is inbred to *RASHAD IBN NAZEER (by *RASHAD out of his own daughter), and his dam NASZRA is also the dam of NASZUMI RSI, the maternal granddam of MOUSSA LHF. ORFISA RSI is out of *BINT NEFISA, a paternal sister to 6 producers of National winners including AMANI (dam of U.S. National Champion Stallion and English Pleasure *ASADD++) and National Champion sire *TUHOTMOS.
