PWA Nagib Shah ( Ansata Halim Shah x Nasbah ) could easily have just stepped out of a classic German breeding program. He is sired by the incomparable Ansata Halim Shah, the Salon du Cheval Reserve World Champion Stallion who influenced Straight Egyptian horse breeding worldwide, and left an indelible stamp on Germany. PWA Nagib Shah’s dam Nasbah is sired by the beautiful stallion Muqatamm, a stallion that can be credited with passing the strict German Performance Test. Muqatamm is both son of Ghazalah and grandson of Malikah, two of Germany’s most important Ghazal daughters. Nasbah’s dam is a daughter of the prolific and elegant mare Foze, imported into Germany from the Egyptian Agricultural Society by Gestut Moritzberg of Nurnberg. In Authentic Arabian Bloodstock, Judith Forbis describes Foze as “An ideal representative of this [Hadban Enzahi through Shams] classic group. Many Americans tried to buy her from Ahmed Hamza without success.”

PWA Nagib Shah is a substantial, well balanced, very good moving stallion. He has small tight ears and classic Arabian type. He has an especially gentle and confident temperament, yet he is always quick to show off when prompted. To date Nagib has sired over twice as many fillies as colts, and one rare black!

PWA Nagib Shah is one of the last remaining sons of Ansata Halim Shah offered at public stud in the United States. He will be shown at the 2010 Egyptian Event in Lexington, KY by Lyday Farm's trainer Bryan Jeffries.
