Ladies and Gentlemen,
For the third time, the Polish Jockey Club has the privilege of organizing the National Arabian Horse Show and the Pride of Poland auction in Janów Podlaski. We hope that this year’s festival for breeders and owners will be held with the participation of the audience and without the additional restrictions that have determined all our undertakings for a year.
This year’s show will be a selection test of what has been successfully bred in Poland in previous years, both in the state studs and at private breeders, whose role in the entire breeding industry is growing and is crucial for the future.
We invite everyone to visit Janów Podlaski on August 13-16th, 2021. Please remember that the number of tickets is limited for each day of the show, so plan your potential visit in advance.
Let 2021 be a breakthrough year in the fight against the pandemic, and may the joy of watching beautiful animals allow everyone to return to normal faster.
This year’s auction will also answer the question of where Arabian horse breeding is after the pandemic and how much this annual break influenced the determination to develop it in the world. It is magical that a small town in the east of Poland gives such an answer in a global sense.
Once again, we invite everyone to Janów Podlaski.
Dear Sir or Madam,
From the 7th to the 10th of August 2020, the 42nd Polish National Arabian Horse Show will take place at Janów Podlaski Stud. It will be crowned by the 51st Pride of Poland Auction and Summer Sale. The event is organized by the Polish Jockey Club.
The involvement of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski will make this year’s pure-bred Arabian horse breeding show unique, not only in more than 50 years of the event’s history, but also compared with many others in Europe and the world.
The prize pool will reach a million zlotys. Four hundred thousand zlotys have been allocated for guaranteed sums for the breeders of the five best horses in their classes. Additionally, the most beautiful stallions and mares will be rewarded for winning certain positions. The breeder of the most beautiful horse of the show (Best in Show) will receive a prize of seventy thousand zlotys.
We are aware that the reputation of pure-bred Arabian horses is the result of the breeders’ passion and their daily commitment, enriched by a great love for these wonderful animals, and a long tradition of breeding. We are convinced that, thanks to this year’s edition, the importance of domestic breeding both in Poland and abroad will be strengthened.
During this year’s festival in Janów Podlaski, Frederick de Backer and Eryk Blaack – well-known and popular auctioneers – will appear. The shows will be supervised by a professional international jury.
The Polish National Show and the Pride of Poland are special days for pure-bred Arabian horse lovers, but this year’s event is gaining in importance. We have managed to overcome the adversities associated with the pandemic and – thanks to the commitment of many people and organizations who care about the wellbeing of Polish breeding – we can enjoy the Arabian horse event again!
