Even as a youngster Classic Shadwan was well-known for his extraordinary type - now, as a mature stallion he is regarded as one "the" progenitors of extreme type. Exotic like no other, he has a dry, chiseled face with huge, dark expressive eyes and rich pigmentation. A well set neck, perfect top line, high set tail (carried absolutely straight) and airy movement complete the picture. A showy stallion, Classic Shadwan is very elegant and looks like a picture book Arabian horse - for many admirers he personifies the ideal of classical Arabian type! As a yearling he won at Pompadour/France and as a two-year-old colt he was Junior Reserve Champion at the international show at Wels/Austria. In 1997 he was awarded International Reserve Champion Stallion at Kaub/Germany and Reserve Champion Stallion at the European Egyptian Event. Last year he won the following titles: Classwiner at Wels, Champion & "Best in Show" at the Egyptian Classic Show /Holland, Champion Stallion at the international show at Kaub and Champion Stallion at the prestigious Platinum Cup. Classic Shadwan's first foal crop in 1997 proved his dominance - his foals inherited his own quality and exotic type as well as his pigmentation (he sired all types of colour - even some black foals). His daughter Shadwanah is a multi-champion filly (among other titles she won German Reserve National Champion Filly and Champion Filly of the European Egyptian Event). His son Mangalee Ibn Shadwan not only was successful at shows, he was awarded a gold medal at Germany's annual stallion show. Another daughter, Sanaa Bint Shahlia, was Most Classic Head and Reserve Champion Filly at the Egyptian Event. But there are many other successful sons and daughters making the name of their sire known in the whole world - like GR Amaretto (Junior Champion Colt at the Egyptian Classic Show in Tilburg/Holland and Reserve Junior Champion Colt of Germany; he was awarded a gold medal at the German Stallion Show at Aachen 2002), GR Shadow (exported to the United States), the black filly Jamala Al Azhar (sold to England) or his promising young black son Maheeb  (out of KEN Bint Bint Mahiba by Ansata Halim Shah!). And with his daughter GR Amaretta, who was Reserve Junior Champion Filly of Germany in 2002 his third offspring won a 
German Reserve National Championship in a row! 


Classic Shadwan's pedigree traces in several lines to Morafic as well as to other sources of extreme type: His sire Alidaar stems from the "golden cross" of Shaikh Al Badi x Bint Magidaa, thus making him a full brother to Ruminaja Ali. Alidaar was imported to France and now resides in Qatar. Alidaar - extreme of type, best conformation and a multi-champion stallion! Classic Shadwan's dam is Shagia Bint Shadwan, imported from the El Zahraa State stud at Cairo. A very exotic, dry and refined mare with exceptional movement. Her sire Shadwan and dam Samar were siblings by Shaarawi (Morafic x Bint Kamla). Shadwan's dam is the famous Kamar, one of the most typeful mares of her time in Egypt. That's the reason why Classic Shadwan is a great progenitor of classic type.
