Sheikh was lightly backed at 4 years of age but due to our ongoing family commitments and through no fault of his own Sheikhs’ ridden career was then put on hold for nearly 6 years, during this time we kept our breeding to a minimum using him occasionally on our own mares and he of course was quite happy in his paddock“relaxing”
In January2016 we brought Sheikh back into work after a 6 year break (a bit of a shock for him initially) but he hadn't forgotten the good basic groundwork instilled in him as a youngster and he is coming along nicely, in fact he seems to be rather enjoying himself and is loving all the extra attention and his new partnership with teenage rider Jordan Shaw.
Sheikh has a very sensible temperament and has excellent manners both under saddle and on the ground, he shows a great enthusiasm for jumping and is producing a nice shape over a fence, he is currently continuing his training and is ridden and handled on a regular basis by both children and adults.

Silver Sheikh has a lot to offer the prospective breeder:
Availability by AI means that Sheikh can be used on larger Sports Horse mares to produce Sports Ponies, our home bred Hanovarian X Yearling Filly by Sheikh was awarded the prestigious Gold Premium Award at Sports Pony Society Youngstock Evaluations in 2018 & in 2019 his 3 year old filly out of our Arabian mare TLC Sheer Delight was presented for grading and awarded SPSS Head Stud Book status.
Sheikh is an excellent improver for a variety of mares he is throwing excellent Show Cobs and Hunter Types from good quality heavier boned mares.
