XXXVIII NATIONAL PURE-BRED ARABIAN HORSE SHOW – INFAMOUS RECORDS OF THE PRIDE OF POLAND 2016 AUCTION
This year's Pride of Poland auction passes into history as a record one, but it is not financial records we have in mind. Although permanent guests remember auctions several years ago when the financial result was at a similar level, this year’s event cannot be assessed only in terms of achieved revenues. This year Janów saw a record in the number of unsold horses (16 out of the 31 on offer), there was record media interest and a record number of spectators. Ticket sales for the Sunday auction ended already on Saturday morning with all the seats. It was clear that many people were in Janów for the first time, and that they heard about Arabian horses only recently. In fact it was difficult not to hear about Arabians over the past several months as the media continue to bring up the topic of the dismissal of the Directors of the Janów and Michałów Studs. It must be admitted that Polish Arabian breeding received a great deal of advertizing, but is this the kind of promotion it needed? The events which took place during the auction overshadowed the entire Arabian Horse Festival, which apart from the auction also (or primarily) comprises the National Pure-Bred Arabian Championship. Let us start from the beginning.
CASE OF POLISH ARABIAN HORSE STUDS IN INTERPRETATION OF OUR GORGEOUS ARTIST - JOANNA JASINSKA-KORONKIEWICZ
EQUATOR’S UNANIMOUS VICTORY – SCOTTSADLE 2016
The prestigious show in Scotsdale, Arizona (11 – 21 February) was a great success for Equator. The Michałów-bred stallion stormed in to win the title of Senior Stallions Champion!The Scottsdale show is one of the most prestigious and most important horse shows in the world. This year it took place for the 61st time. In the Sunday competition the stallion, leased by Aljassimya Farm since December, had no equals.
2015 WORLD CHAMIONSHIP IN PARIS
It was the 35th time that the international crème de la crème of pure-bred Arabians was hosted in Paris. The World Championship took place on 27 – 29 November as part of the Salon du Cheval. The best among the best faced each other to compete for the highest awards.There were marvelously moving moments as well as disappointments. Torrential applause as well as surprising decisions of the jury. Like every year spectators waited for the entry of the dragon, the horse that would sway the public. This time could be no different. Michałów’s Equator (QR Marc – Ekliptyka/Ekstern) took possession of the arena and raised our hopes for victory. However, the highest podium was not for him. This time Al Jazeera and Pustynia Kahila were also eclipsed by the gold Morion and beautifully moving Equator.
FAREWELL TO PIANISSIMA - piano means quiet…
This year unfortunately does not spare us bad news, hiting us with great force and causing immense pain. On 19 October we lost Pianissima (Gazal Al Shaqab – Pianosa/ Eukaliptus). An exceptional mare, bred in Janów, which became a legend already during her lifetime.
Pianissima was foaled in January 2003 as the first foal of Pianosa and the Qatari stallion Gazal Al Shaqab. From the first moments of her life the unmatched beauty of her little head was absolutely fascinating and sowed a seed of hope for future success in the show ring.
NATIONS’ CUP IN AACHEN
We bring wonderful news straight from Aachen - the Nations’ Cup and the Breeders’ Cup are once again in Polish hands! The XXXIII Nations’ Cup took place during the last weekend of September (25 – 27.09) in the Albert-Vahle-Halle. The Polish team, totally reliable as usual, guaranteed a great deal of emotions also this time. The prize in the Breeders’ Cup, The Major T.W.I. Hedley Memorial Trophy, was awarded to Poland for the sixth time, while the prize in the Nations’ Cup, The Lady Harmsworth Blunt Memorial Trophy, for the ninth.
