Nadal - Ventican x Bint Nariadnaia (Monitor)
1m57 - 2003
SCID and CA clear


As you know, for more than 27 years, my goal is to preserve the high qualities (soundness, stamina, sportive potential, beauty and refinement, temperament) and typical traits of the Arab breed and more specifically, throught the Russian bloodlines from Tersk Stud I fell in love with 30 years ago.

NADAL - Here is quality. Here is soundness. Here is beauty. Here is the original Arabian Horse!

I am more than grateful towards Mrs Jackie Hutchings Mellway, from Mellway Arabians - UK, for entrusting me with the gorgeous Nadal. Thanks to her trust, Nadal is joining the Faber Arabians family and he will be offered the opportunity to spread his high quality genetics, his breathtaking bloodlines and his sportive capacities as well. Dear Jackie, be sure he will be loved and cared until his last breath.

With Nadal, the versatility of the Arabian Horse really means something!

*Raced one season when he was 5 yrs old, he wonderfully finished as the 2nd in the Bait Al Wakeel Handicap Stakes!*

* Then he was shown:

- 2nd - 2yrs old colts, AHS Summer show
- 3rd - 2 yrs old colts Wessex Summer show
- 2nd - 3 yrs old colts, South West Arab show
- 2nd - 3 yrs old colts, Devon County show
- 3nd - Senior stallions, UK International Arabian Horse show*

Not only a performer but a sire!

Quality offspring, amongst them:

* Mellway Royal Blue Diamong is a very succesful competitor in endurance as her last result was a CEI ** 120 km 3rd place!

* Mellway Golden Klassic was very successfully shown:
   - Silver champion, Junior colts, South West Arab Horse Show 2009
   - 2nd 1yr/2yrs old colts and Silver champion junior colts, Wessex Summer Show 2010
   - 2nd 2yrs old colts, Devon County Show 2010
   - 3rd 3 yrs old colts, The South West Arab Horse Group 2011
   - Best gelding, Oketampton show 2012
  then he has started competing in dressage and hunter events where he is regularly placed as winner and second.

* Mellway Blue Jazmin has just been bought by Denise van Gils in Holland.

Nadal will give the great opportunity to European breeders to take advantage of his wonderful genetics, type and conformation, bloodlines and sportive capacities from 2022 at Faber Arabians! Stay tuned!
