About Zariah

Zariah al samarra commenced endurance training in Australia in 2019 and successfully completed her first two 80km rides at the end of 2020 with excellent recoveries.  She is a super comfortable, easy to manage, no-nonsense riding horse.  Zariah comes from a family of endurance stars, with parents, siblings, cousins and nieces consistently climbing European and world endurance podiums, and several ranked in FEI top 10 world rankings for endurance.  While the family sport is endurance, Zariah’s sire, Komet, was the top scoring stallion in his stallion performance test, including dressage and jumping criteria, and 95% of his progeny are awarded premium status by the breeding commissions.

Tragically, Zariah developed a Staphylococcus infection in her elbow joint in early 2021, requiring hospitalisation, multiple surgeries, and a long recovery.  It was touch and go for a while, but being the tough mare she is, she bravely pulled through and is now herself again.  But her promising career had to end before it properly began.  

They say there is always a silver lining.  Zariah has proved to be the most amazing mother, willing nursemaid to the foal group while the other mothers go shopping, and even allowing another foal to suckle while we were holding her for a routine manicure.  

Her daughter, New-Moon Ziri, is showing the same perfect blend of confidence, toughness, sense and kindness that gives a performance mare her edge to win.

Our “Z” family will be your dream partners for competitive equine sport.

Zariah is currently in foal to the German Shagya-Araber stallion, Tolstoj al Samarra, due to foal in December 2024.
