Al Waab Farm welcomes Leon Botha to the team!

January 2022


With the new year comes new beginnings, and with that, we welcome another fantastic horse expert to the Al Waab Farm family.


Leon Botha, from Pretoria in South Africa, has been working with horses of all breeds, for over 30 years - yet just like us it is the Arabian horse that is Leon’s passion.


Leon has been an International Arabian Horse judge for the past 15 years, and ran his own training centre with his wife in South Africa before making the move to Doha.


Having successfully shown and trained horses to international level for halter and performance, Leon brings a wealth of knowledge to the team and will be working alongside us all in our mission to inspire passion, educate and spread awareness about the Straight Egyptian Arabian.


Leon says, “Horses are the love of my life, second to my beautiful wife Ina of course. Al Waab farm will bring new and exciting challenges, and I am so happy to have joined this cracking team”.


We too, are so excited to have him as part of our team and look forward to seeing what 2022 has in store!
