Congratulations to Sheikh Hazza bin Sultan and all the team at W'rsan Farm who train and care for Hachim.


Hachim : the all-round athlete

Hachim is a big bay 100% Crabbet gelding by Achim's Silver Magic out of Hamsfah by Hanif.

He passed his stallion licensing with flying colours at two and covered four of my Crabbet mares in 1996 and 1997, siring four lovely fillies: Zaha (out of Zaharina) 1997; Hadith (out of Someone Special) 1997; Magic Sheen (out of Crystal Sheen) 1998; and Magic Fire (out of Nishtar) 1998.

He has had a meteoric career, from his training with Paul Nunn near Norwich to become the youngest ever Arab to receive an AHS Premium and gain a Performance Horse Grade 11 at just four years old. The gruelling test included show jumping over doubles, a cross country course, a dressage test, loose schooling over jumps, a vet exam and an inspection by the President of the Arab Horse Society.

On the racecourse, Hachim has achieved a rating of 55 after just two races and was invited to appear in the Stallion Parade at the National Stud in Newmarket in 1998.


Hachim was sold to Abu Dhabi where the ruler's grandson, Sheikh Hazza rode him to victory in the 2002 Bahrain Endurance Race, one of the toughest in the world.

He was then selected for their National Endurance team at the World Equestrian Games in Spain in 2002 and completed his success with his World Endurance Championship win in 2005. Souvenirs of this feat even include a fridge magnet, on sale in Dubai gift shops, see photo.
