Stallions at Stud

We are fortunate to have two Shayga-Arabian stallions at Hughes Highland Shagyas.

*Hadban USA is standing at stud at our farm and available for live cover and fresh cooled shipment in 2019. *Hadban USA, known as Reno around the barn, born in 2003, is a 15.2 hand bay Shagya-Arabian stallion, approved  with the North American Shagya-Arabian Society (NASS).

Reno is a pleasant, respectful, stallion. He is a stout fellow with tons of substance and large feet. He is calm, does not spook, and is a steady, consistent worker. If you want a tough horse with calm intelligence, heavy bone, excellent feet, that can keep going and going, to cross with your mare, *Hadban USA is for you.

Reno has competed successfully in endurance, completing over 900 AERC miles, H46588. In these 900+ miles, he has

  • (1) 100 mile completion at the Tevis Cup
  • (4) 75 mile completions with (2) Top Ten
  • (7) Top Tens in the 50 miles distance, and
  • (4) Top Tens in the 25 mile distance

CHF Hadban’s National Anthem, known as Salute around the barn, is registered with the North American Shagya-Arabian Society (NASS) as well as the Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry (PShR), and is the son of *Hadban USA.

Salute is currently 15.2 hands, and I expect he may grow some more. He is everything I expect in a high quality Shagya. He has an unflappable, friendly personality. He is equally easy to work with in a herd and separated from the herd. He learns everything as if he has always known it, has great feet with thick, solid hoof wall and tough soles, and conformation, has serious speed, and is also quite handsome!

With lines to *Hadban USA, *Oman, and Sarvar PFF, Salute is bred for performance. His pedigree contains *Hadban USA who is a Tevis finisher (2019) with almost 1000 AERC miles, and his dam’s sire, Lily Creek Stetson (now a gelding), is a Tevis finisher (2016), an Old Dominion 100 finisher (2017, 2012), second place finisher at the AERC National Championship 100 (2015), and won and BCd the Vermont 100 (2017). He has over 2400 AERC miles and 11 – 100 mile ride completions. Salute is already licensed for breeding in PShR (as a three year old), and the fact that I presented him at the inspection with no prior experience in SHIH, showmanship, or breed inspections, and that I’m starting his training under saddle (I’m not a professional) is a testament to his mind and agreeable and willing personality.
