Our beloved horses that are no longer with us.
Aswan × Stihia (Topol)
"The King of Georgian Arabians" Our magnificent incomparable Artist, born and bred at the Tersk Stud in Russia in 1981 was one of the few remaining sons of the legendary Aswan.
Artist had an extraordinarily successful career on the racetrack in young life and was a proven sire of superlative progeny with type power and athleticism. Many of Artist's progeny have gone on to have careers in performance disciplines.
His son Egatist, out of E line Polish mare Egala, made us all amazingly proud when he became Champion Ridden Stallion at The Horse of the Year Show in 2009.
Sadly in November 2012 we had to say goodbye.

Inaya Bint Atticus
The Atticus × MB Dhakeena (Imperial Madheen)
This beautiful mare with the most expressive dark eyes I have ever seen was the most extraordinary brood mare producing among others homozygous black stallion SG Indigo and the delectable SG Iris. Inaya had the sweetest of temperements and although quiet of nature, on the move she was a sight to see.
RIP beautiful girl.
SG Spirit of Essteem - British National Champion × Misk Tarifa (Maleik El Kheil)
Malikeh El Sakeena
Maleik El Kheil × Shahmir (Mudir)
Malikeh has been the most amazing asset to Georgian Arabians, producing a host of exceptional showhorses. Her first born colt SG Spirit of Essteem, as a yearling was crowned British National Champion and Reserve Supreme of the National show. Since that time, she has had many more fillies than colts, including SG Lace, and two very special show mares sired by WH Justice, SG Matisse and SG Mathilda. Her eyes are large soft and full of expression. She has a well conformed strong body that has stood the test of time since entering her senior years and she still moves effortlessly with extravagance and pride.
Ansata El Salaam × MB Dhakeena (Imperial Madheen)
Its hard to put into words how precious Djewel is to owner breeder Susan George, as when this mare was just a few weeks old she was taken to Newmarket with a suspected broken neck.It was never discovered how this happened but once diagnosed, all that could be done for her was to hope and pray for her survival. A large creche made from straw bales was created at the farm to allow her to play and her owners believed with her indomnitable spirit, she would win the day.
Now many years later Djewel prances in the field with her head held high and her tail permenantly over her back and that wonderful look of her sire, Ansata El Salam. Her mother is an exquisite daughter of Imperial Madheen and the coupling of this sire and dam has produced a treasured mare.
IN FOAL TO SG IMAGINE FOR 2015.
NEMAN × PHOENIZA (KILIMANDSCHARO)
Pustinja was such a special mare who years ago I was lucky enough to learn about through a friend who knew, once seen, I would fall in love with her and I did. Thank you Jane Khadri. This superp Russian mare was a stunning mover with elegance and cadence in every powerful stride and she won many a prize in the show arena. Her best baby was a filly by Essteem called SG Epernay. She just like her mother became a talked about show horse and we were so very proud. Then, one day in in a very bad winter storm Epernay was badly injured. Show horse no longer, there was never the less a positive outcome to the irresistably beautiful Epernays life, when she found a new home and is treasured with friends.
Gwizd × Piala (ASWAN)
Simon my late husband bought Paleogeia for me as a present. I knew about this extraodinary Russian/Polish mare by reputation before visiting the Gucci stud to see her in the flesh and she fulfilled every expectation and more. She won so many trophy's with us and one that i will always remember was the Wales and West show in its hay day. She was by then in senior years but flew round that ring her grand extravagant movement a sight to see, as if a youngster performing for the very first time. She was also the best of broodmares and her offspring went on to carry her name in lights, notably her stallion son by World Champion Essteem, SG Palastreem who had a sensational winning year under saddle in 2009.
Grandorr × Egina (Palas)
Egala is E-line Polish bred and this mare is an astounding producer of athletic show horses.
Egala has been a prolific broodmare for Georgian Arabians, producing one after the other, strong, charismatic, athletic offspring, many of whom have gone on to compete at the highest level. We have outcrossed many times but she never fails to put her amazing stamp on all she produces. Her structure is faultless, with a good length of body, deep chest, smooth top line and plenty of bone. She is still a stunning mover and quite like a teenager, although now in her senior years. She has been such an asset to our breeding programme and this year is in foal to WH Justice son, SG Just Djude.
