HADBAN USA ShA
*Hadban USA is an all-bay 15.2 hand stallion who was imported from Austria in utero.
He is a representative of the Romanian HADBAN sire line which is rare outside of
Romania. His sire, Harapnik, was exported from Romania to Germany in utero and
was approved and performance tested in Germany. He also stood at stud in Austria and
*Hadban USA is the only representative of this outstanding sire line in America.
This line, which was developed primarily at the Radautz State Stud in Bukovina,
Romania, is particularly well respected in Europe for distance competitions as well as
for jumping ability. Developed over several centuries, the Romanian mother lines have
proven themselves to provide all of the attributes needed for distance riding
competitions, such as tractability, toughness, hardiness, iron-like legs and feet, and the
“gritty” quality to keep on traveling.
An extremely tractable stallion, a true gentleman to be around, he retained his excellent
libido as well as the ability to compete successfully in endurance racing when
surrounded by mares. After completing his NASS Performance Test in distance riding,
carrying 250 lbs. in two back-to-back 35 mile AERC rides, followed by three 50-mile
rides, *Hadban USA has gone on to finish in the Top Ten at 50 miles at the FEI Ft.
Howes competition in 2011. He subsequently successfully completed over 900
endurance miles, including 5 Top Tens in either 50 or 75 miles. In 2016 he placed in the
Top Ten for the National Championship AERC Jim Jones Stallion Award and in 2018 at
age 16 he successfully completed the grueling 100-mile Tevis Cup.
*Hadban USA’s dam *Ihrana was the daughter of the well-known German-bred Amor
son Amos who was a classic Gazal/Shagya cross stallion, her dam line is also classic
blood from the Shagya-Arabian birthplace – Babolna Hungary. *Ihrana also carries a
touch of Crabbet blood through Nizzam ox.
*Hadban USA’s frozen semen is of excellent quality and his foals are known for
inheriting his tractibility, strong and correct conformation and excellent pulse and
