Black has always been a colour associated with class, style, high end fashion and rare sense of beauty. Having been blessed with a deep coal colored coat and the beauty and enigma of the rare black diamond, Ava is indeed the Arabian industry’s contribution to the eloquent description of the colour black.

Ava’s exotic head, authentic Arabian type, smooth body, swan-like neck and enchanting presence were gifted to her by the stellar individuals found in her dynamic pedigree. Ava’s sire Vervaldee is a stallion who has always been applauded for his ability to produce foals with that ’20 scoring’ head and type. He is a son of the great Versace, who is known as one of the greatest breeding horses to date and is out of the NV Beau Bey daughter Giavanna. Being line bred to Bey Shah+ and Precious As Gold (which in turn means multiple crosses to breed legends El Shaklan, Estopa and Bask++), Vervaldee has blessed Ava with intense doses of beauty and a rich genetic history; all of which are lauded by our industry on a global scale.

The immense depth of quality found in the dam side of Ava’s pedigree is reflected in all facets of her life. Aziza is a stunning black mare that is line bred to one of the most beautiful horses to come out of the Simeon Stud program – twice Reserve World Champion, Simeon Sadik. And with Simeon Sadik comes the powerhouse stallion Asfour as well as Simeon Stud’s foundation mare and breed aristocrat, 27 Ibn Galal V. Through Aziza’s sire Arastin, Janow Podlaski’s brood matron Arba builds upon the already high level of aristocracy and adds yet another dimension of quality to Ava’s star studded genotype.

Ava is an ebony enchantress that has not only wowed many a judge in show rings around the world but is also steadily making her mark in the breeding barn. Being sired by different stallions and having always inherited her extreme type, Ava’s foals are a testament to her genetic prowess. Her daughter Amaya AT (by Fadi Al Shaqab) is an Aachen Arabian Futurity Reserve Champion and her daughter by Baha AA, Ariaa, is poised and ready to shine.

With that strong genetic background emanating into her glorious phenotype Ava is without a doubt one of the rarest and most treasured jewels in the Al Thumama treasure box. And with her breeding career already kicking off with a bang, she is set to show the world the ‘beauty of black.’
