On 5 April, the first press conference dedicated to the organisation of this year’s Pride of Poland and national show was held. The meeting was attended by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski, President of the Polish Jockey Club, Tomasz Chalimoniuk, President of the Janów Podlaski Stud, Grzegorz Czochański and President of the Michałów Stud, Monika Słowik.
At the conference the jury compositions, the list of horses from the national studs and the list of people conducting the auction were announced. Minister Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski stressed that Poles love horses, mainly due to history and tradition. As regards organising the auction and the show, he hoped that this year’s auction would attract many visitors and the Poles could yet again be proud of horses, which have been the pride of Poland for a long time.
President Tomasz Chalimoniuk announced that the auction had been advertised extensively worldwide. The Pride of Poland advertisements are present during all the most important Arabian horse shows over the world. “Next weekend, catalogues with information on this year’s auction will be distributed, inter alia, in Las Vegas,” he revealed at the press conference.
President Czochański and President Słowik presented the horses from their studs that had been put up for auction.
