During the 19-20th of August the premises of AKF Stud (Poland) hosted an international B-show as part of the Al Khalediah European Arabian Horse Festival.
There were 119 horse entries in the catalog, with 106 of them presented in the arena. The show was international not only in name, but literally as well, with 24 of the presented horses owned by foreign exhibitors. Out of the remaining number (82) 55 horses were shown by Polish private breeders, whereas state breeding was represented by 15 horses from Michałów, 6 from Janów Podlaski and 6 from Białka.
Detailed results can be found under the following links:
In the finals foreign-owned horses claimed 11 medals, including all golds (though it must be said that one of the gold medalists was the Polis-bred Fuerte). Michałów Stud won a silver (Poganinka) and bronze (Wieża Mocy), Białka a bronze (Elidus) and the private breeders secured a silver (El Shaad) and three bronze medals (Wasalia, Calateon, Psyche Keret).
Tomorrow the Al Khalediah Poland Cup St. (cat. A) will take place at the Służewiec Racetrack in Warsaw.

Psyche Victoria's result (91,85 pts) was the second highest score of the show.
