GREAT PEOPLE ALWAYS PASS AWAY TOO SOON - ROMAN PANKIEWICZ 1924 - 2016

2016-12-07

Roman Pankiewicz, an unsurpassable authority on Arabian horse breeding and history, a man with an unusual sense of humour, passed away on 6 December at the age of 92. The story of his life abounded in events that could easily make up half a dozen biographies. Roman Pankiewicz was born in 1924 in Kapłanowice. He and his mother were deported to Siberia in 1940 – 1946. After returning to Poland he graduated from the Agricultural University in Olsztyn and in 1951 started work at the State Horse Stud in Albigowa, which became the birthplace of the stallion he bred, which changed the course of history. Since then nothing was the same.

WORLD CHAMIONSHIP IN PARIS 2016

2016-11-30

We need not emphasize that the World Horse Championship in Paris is one of the highest ranking Arabian horse shows. The contestants include horses and breeders who are likely to be the trendsetters in the near future. This year horses from Janów and those of private breeders were not represented. Only the Michałów team appeared in Paris. Polish horses won the highest awards on numerous occasions, displaying their top quality. And although the quality of Polish horses remains  (still) the same, the results of this year’s Championship can hardly surprise. Already after the Cup of Nations in Aachen it was clear what is to be expected in Paris. Five ladies from Michałów: Emanolla (Vitorio TO - Emandoria/Gazal Al Shaqab), EL Larinera (Empire - El Emeera/Ekstern), Galerida (Shanghai E.A. - Galilea/Laheeb), Pustynia Kahila (Kahil Al Shaqab - Pustynna Malwa/Ekstern) and Emmona (Monogramm - Emilda/Pamir) were responsible for representing our country. Three returned with Top Ten titles, none could hope for a medal in the finals.

EQUATOR - VICE CHAMPION OF US SENIOR STALLIONS!

2016-10-30

It is a pleasure indeed to share this information! During this years’ US Championship in Tulsa the Michałów bred 6 years old stallion Equator (QR Marc - Ekliptyka/Ekstern), leased by the Qatar Aljassimya Stud Farm, won the title of Vice Champion of Senior Stallions. It must be emphasized that the stallion also won his class in great style. Equator won very high scores for type (3x”20”) and movement (4x”20”), consequently the total score of 401.5 points turned out to be unbeatable. The highest title in the Championship was awarded to the stallion MARAJJ (Marwan Al Shaqab - RGA Kouress/Kouvay Bey). An additional Polish accent was the title won by Białka’s Perfirka (Gazal Al Shaqab - Perforacja/Ernal). The mare won the title of Senior Mares Champion in the amateur category leaving all rivals behind.

ALL ROADS LEAD TO … KRAKÓW? I KRAKÓW ARABIAN HORSE FESTIVAL

2016-09-14

The sunny, even hot weekend (09.09 – 11.09) spent at the Kraków Race Course in Buczków is now behind us. The occasion was the I Kraków Arabian Horse Festival, which comprised two events. On Friday and Saturday pure-bred Arabians competed for the title of most beautiful horse of the show ring. On Sunday the competition moved to the race track. The organizer of the event was Ms Anna Stojanowska and the directors, until recently, of the Janów Stud, Mr Marek Trela, and Michałów Stud, Mr Jerzy Białobok. One of the main attractions consisted of three new classes: foals, geldings and amateur presenters. The list of sponsors included the AL Thumama Stud from Qatar, Halsdon Arabians of Ms Shirley Watts, Al Zobair Stud of the United Arab Emirates, Lutetia Arabians from France, Suweco Stud from the Czech Republic and Polish studs, Silvatica Black Arabians and M Arabians.  Invitations to judge were accepted by Christine Jamar-Demeerseeman from Belgium, Claudia Darius from Germany, Gianmarco Aragno from Italy and Jaroslav Lacina from the Czech Republic. This year’s show did not have a ECAHO affiliation but was held in accordance with ECAHO regulations. The smiling audience, efficient organization, ultra-hospitable course designers, and most of all, beautiful Arabian horses, made the debut of the show a great success. Let us now have a look at what happened in the show ring.

2016-09-09

During the Equestrian Endurance Ride which took place on 2 – 3 September in Malichów in the Opole region pure-bred Arabians proved that they are not only porcelain figures but flesh and blood, and of the best variety! The Dolina Gawora Stables run by Mr Marek Tul was the organizer of this years Polish Seniors Championship, Polish Juniors Championship and an International Endurance Competition (CEI 2*), as well as a National and Non-affiliated competition. The event met with considerable interest as the number of entered combinations was over 70! Arabian horses clearly proved to be infallible.

XXXVIII NATIONAL PURE-BRED ARABIAN HORSE SHOW – INFAMOUS RECORDS OF THE PRIDE OF POLAND 2016 AUCTION

2016-08-18

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 years 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.

2015 WORLD CHAMIONSHIP IN PARIS

2015-12-04

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…

2015-10-20

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.

2015-08-18

This had to happen. Kwestura, the mare which held the record of the most expensive horse sold, had to pass on its crown as this year’s Pride of Poland Auction saw a new price record. The star of the evening was Janów’s Pepita (Ekstern – Pepesza/Eukaliptus), which beat Kwestura’s record by two hundred and fifty thousand Euro! After the auction the mare’s new owner, apparently from Switzerland, made his lap of honour with unhidden joy, Pepita in hand. Pepita’s record was not all.
