Celebrating Beauty: Mozn Albidayer

A young filly made her way into the show-ring last year and, at every outing, she captivated and enchanted people. Her name? Mozn Albidayer. 

Bred by Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi, owner of Albidayer Stud in Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates, Mozn Albidayer charmed her way around the show-rings of Europe and the Middle East in her debut yearling season. Now, she is conquering America, and she firmly has her sights set on the US Nationals.

Born in 2014, Mozn Albidayer is already the most well-known daughter of the much-admired stallion, SMA Magic One (Psytadel x Majidah Bint Pacha by AS Sinans Pacha out of AS Mounah). Owned by Al Zobair Stud, also in Sharjah, Albidayer Stud was one of the first outside farms to use this classy grey stallion. They bred SMA Magic one to of their foundation mares, the lovely, huge-moving chestnut Mattaharii (ex Belindaa by Mishaah out of Bask Gazal by Bask). Mattaharii is sired by Magnum Chall HVP (Magnum Psyche x Tamara HVP by Don El Chall out of Tanana), an influential stallion, especially in the United States, and this blend of bloodlines has worked well.

From the moment Mozn Albidayer was born, Sheikh Mohammed knew that she was a very special filly. Exotic yet correct, Mozn is typey, full of charisma and femininity, and she is a huge mover. Albidayer Stud’s Manager, Dawn Martin, and Trainer, Barry Shepherd, also immediately recognised the filly’s star qualities, and plans were made to bring Mozn Albidayer out in her yearling year.

Her first show was the Ajman International Show in January, where Mozn won her class effortlessly and went on to take the Gold Yearling Filly Championship. From there, Mozn Albidayer danced on to the Dubai International Arabian Horse Championships, a title show, and there, too, she won her class. Come the Yearling Filly Championship, which saw strong competition from beauties bred across the Middle East, Mozn Albidayer held her own and took the Gold title once more.

This young filly then made the journey to France for showing in Europe. Mozn Albidayer showed her usual flamboyance at the Arabian Horse Organization Breeders’ Championships in Chantilly, winning her class and taking her third Gold Yearling Filly title of the season. From there, she went to Aachen, taking the coveted People’s Choice for both the class win and the Gold Yearling Filly Championship. The judges, however, placed Mozn Albidayer Silver, with the judges at the Paris World Championships awarding her the Bronze Yearling Female title to round off a spectaculars debut season.

Mozn Albidayer then headed across the Atlantic to Michael Byatt Arabians, making her American debut at the Scottsdale All-Arabian Horse Show, where she won her class with ease. Next was the Arabian Breeders’ World Cup in Las Vegas where, by now, her fan club had grown. Winning her class with some style, including straight 20s for head scores, Mozn Albidayer was garlanded Gold Junior Female Champion.

October will See Mozn Albidayer take to the show-rings of Tulsa, at the prestigious US Nationals. There, she will dance once more, this time under the brightest lights of all, as she goes for the title of US National Champion Filly.

One thing is for sure, this filly has such an amazing future ahead of her – and she is in illustrious company as she does so. Her stablemates at Michael’s are Kanz Albidayer (Ajman Moniscione x DL Marielle by Marwan Al Shaqab out of RGA Kouress), Albidayer Stud’s first homebred star, and Rajj Albidayer (Marajj x Lorendonna Z by Odyssey SC out of Lily Marlaina). Kanz Albidayer, a seven-year-old stallion, is a multiple champion across Europe and the Middle East, while Rajj Albidayer, purchased by Sheikh Mohammed this year, is a Gold Champion Yearling Colt in Las Vegas as well as Junior Male Champion in Scottsdale.
