About

A magnificent individual with a commanding presence, El Jahez has a tapestry of bloodlines that includes nearly every great American breeding horse of the last 50 years. It is a dynamic blend of the best of treasured Polish, Egyptian, and Brazilian lines.

It is also an outcross for most contemporary pedigrees because it does not contain the Padron/Al Shaqab lines that frequently appear in modern Arabians. Bred in the United States by Fred and Mary Widman at their Widman Hill Arabians, El Jahez is a rare example in today’s breeding, boasting a tail male line to the immortal Bask through Negatraz, Monogramm, and the Polish-bred Debowiec.

El Jahez was exported to Brazil as a yearling after being noticed in Scottsdale by legendary Brazilian breeder, Lenita Perroy. He had an abundance of type, and the long, elegant neck and fluid motion that Perroy valued for her breeding program.

It was a fantastic find that brought the story of El Jahez full circle; Perroy had bred the colt’s sire, Jiuliusz De Wiec, at her Haras Meia Lua, then sold him to America as a yearling. In a remarkable coincidence, she was also the breeder of El Jahez’s maternal grandsire, Julleyn El Jamaal. Her influence is seen all across the pedigree of this stunning stallion.

El Jahez WH sired 47 Brazilian foals, of which 12 were colts and 36 were fillies. He did an excellent job with the many Haras Meia Lua Ali Jamaal daughters but really clicked with Elle Dorada (Enzo x El Dorada, by Sanadik El Shaklan), who was bred by Manny Vierra at his Valley Oaks Arabians in California. Indeed, it was a golden cross. El Jahez and Elle Dorada produced a dozen full siblings, including triple-United States Reserve National Champion, Elzunya Meia Lua.

From a rich class of 23 competitive females, Elzunya was named the 2015 U.S. Reserve National Champion Yearling Filly, then added U.S. Reserve National Champion Two-Year-Old and U.S. Reserve National Champion Junior Mare titles in 2016. Not only did she prove herself in the show ring, but Elzunya has also established herself as a valuable broodmare.

Her son by Na-Mous Al Shahania, Nabhaan Al Shahania, was the unanimous Scottsdale Junior Champion Colt in 2019. She is also the dam of the striking Alizandros (by EKS Alihandro), the East Coast Champion Stallion as a yearling in 2019 and the Region 15 Champion 2-Year-Old Colt in 2020.

He overwhelmed me in the extreme. Standing in front of him in the championship gave me goosebumps. He is a horse well in balance, with an extreme lay of shoulder and an amazing neck. We can use a stallion of his quality in Europe to breed to the very typey mares to improve their bodies’ stretch and length of neck. He is a great horse!

Koenraad DetailleurJudge, Belgium

El Jahez made quite an impression, I look forward to seeing the impact he will have in Europe.

Willie BrownInternational judge of EKS Arabians, South Africa

It is not often that you come across a horse that leaves you with that “special feeling”. Without a doubt, that is what happened when I saw El Jahez in Brazil. His look and expression captured me the moment he stepped out of the stable, beautiful and powerful! His style, elegance, stretch, athleticism, and presence are hard to find nowadays. I truly believe that El Jahez will be a game-changer in the breeding industry, and I am looking forward to witnessing his impact on the breed.”

Tom ObenTrainer, Belgium

He appears to be a very different stallion from what we have available in Europe today. His neck and shoulder look spectacular, it’s certainly what needs improvement in our horses. And with his interesting pedigree with Bey Shah, Ruminaja Ali, and Monogramm inside, he is a stallion I am planning to use on some of my mares.

Karl-Heinz StoeckleBreeder of Osterhof Stud

As soon as El Jahez stepped off the van, his presence was undeniable. He is the total package — beauty, correctness, size, motion. And oh... that neck and those eyes!! He is very tuned in to his people and I was honored to be a part of his journey to his fantastic new home. I can’t wait to see the success he will have as his next chapter unfolds.

Randi Moreau-SipiereCenturion Stud

Danubius Arabians probably has a similar feeling bringing El Jahez WH here. We love to see bloodlines other than Psytadel (Padron) and Marwan Al Shaqab. It makes our breeding choices more interesting and exciting. His neck is unreal, and we would love to use him in our program.
