I am the co-owner of the Nabilah stud together with Gisela UIjs who is located in Namibia. 

I am an attorney at law.  I have been breeding Arabian horses for 37 years.  


The Nabilah stud originated with the import of two mares and one stallions to South Africa from the Egyptian Agricultural Organisation (EAO) and the Skeik Obeyed stud during 1945, by the Uijs family.  The stud has been involved in conservation breeding since its inception, 76 years ago. It is the oldest stud in South Africa. 


The descendants of these noble horses of the desert live on in the mares and stallions that grace our stud.   The Nabilah horses reflect the original desert type in their general appearance, tail carriage, movement, and stamina.  Our goal is to conserve these original characteristics of these noble horses, especially their type, hardiness and stamina.

 I was born in Altamura, a  famous city in the South East of Italy. My immense passion for everything related to the horses brought me to devote my life in studying the scientific welfare of horses. I started studying classical equestrian techniques and participated successfully in Endurance and Dressage competitions with horses trained by myself. Then I worked as Equestrian Instructor, specialized in working with horses with behavoural problems. My Breeding Farm is the only place, in Center-South Italy to focus on the welfare of the horse, ethically speaking. I follow the studies of the founders of the Italian School of Ethical Horsemanship, based in Tuscany, and for once, I can say it is an all-Italian pride.

The art, the symmetry, the musicality of movements, the lightness, had inevitably attracted me towards the beautiful horse par excellence : who can say that there is beauty more exciting than an Arabian?  So as avid student as I am I started to study deeply in the past of this magnificent horse, their pedigrees, their original breeders, the contribution of Occidentals to the international development of this horse. I worked as Journalist too, writing texts ( often provocative ones) about the historiography  (different from the history) of this horse.

I founded my breeding Farm in 1999, with a clear focus in my mind: the Dahman Shahwan strain. I imported my foundations horses from U.S:A. , Germany, Ireland, and my first stallion from Italy.

In my prime my passion for the Arabian horse was also expressed through art: I produced numerous works of painting in oil, tempera and charcoal which always had as their absolute protagonist, the Arabian Horse, in the most logical continuity artistic vein of the''orientalists'' of the late nineteenth century French.

Some of my paintings  are in the United States, Libya, Germany and France.

I was born in Rome and now live in South of Tuscany; I passed my time being a manager and politician.  I am specialized in zootechnical techniques, and my early passion for Arabian horses brings me to join the A.N.I.C.A. since its beginnings, contributing to writing the present statute of the Italian Association of Arabian Horse.

Since 1986, my wife Marta and me, founded the Hadhad Arabians, a breeding stud focused on Spanish bloodlines.  Five years later, the focus of my breeding farm changed preferring the Straight Egyptian horses, focalizing the projects around a single dam line: the Abeyyah Om Jurays.

Since my retirement, I was busy in research and writing about the history of Arabian horses.  My articles are present in the most famous International magazines specialized in Arabian horses.
