Dear PAHBA Members,
Just a reminder that this weekend (April 9-10th, 2016) the 20th Annual PAHBA Meeting will take place, in accordance with the earlier invitation and the announced agenda.
The meeting will start at 10:00 am.
In accordance with the Statute the Meeting will encompass both reports and seminars (a lecture from Professor Krystyna Chmiel and vet. Jan Samsel).
The PAHBA Board
The management of Michałów Stud has informed our Office that it has decided to reduce the breeding fee of Ekstern and Equator by 50%.
Entitled to this discount will be owners of mares registered in the PASB. The discount is valid from April 1st, 2016.
There is a limit in regard to the use of Ekstern - a maximum of one mare of a given owner.
In case of Equator the available semen is frozen.
The management of Janów Podlaski has been informed by the owner of the stallion Abyad AA (bred and owned by Ariela Arabians), currently on lease at Janów Podlaski, that his breeding fee is now 1,000 Euro, effective immediately.
The management of Janów Podlaski Stud has decided to lower by 50% the fee for the breeding to Pogrom.
The discount applies for owners of mares registered in the PASB and is valid for all breedings purchased from April 1st, 2016 until the end of the breeding season.
The management has also asked the owner of Ascot DD, Athbah Stud, to consider a discount for a breeding to this stallion.
Dear Ladies and Gentelmen,
Yesterday the Racing Program for the 2016 season at the Służewiec Race Track has been approved. The Program plans 29 Conformation Races, including 26 group races and three stake races. Such a number of races fully guarantees the carrying out of stamina trials for show-bred horses, without the need to compete against French-blood Arabians.
It must be emphasized that this would not have been possible without the support of the entire PAHBA, especially President Anna Stojanowska.
The entire correspondence regarding the Conformation Races was carried out by our President at an express rate, which had enormous significance for the above mentioned success.
We wish to inform that similarly to previous years Janów Podlaski Stud will organize a foal inspection by the "private stables" on the second day of the Annual Meeting at 10:00 am.
The subject of the lecture, which will take place on Saturday at 2:30 pm, is: "The Polish Arabian horse breeding program and its implementation" and will be presented by Prof. Krystyna Chmiel.
We also wish to inform that the conference fee for participating in the 20th Annual Meeting is 50 PLN. It will be possible to purchase meals (dinner and supper) on the spot.
During the International Show in Dubai, which took place on the 17-19th of March, 2016, 8 horses of Polish breeding were shown. High places in their classes were secured by: Camilia (bred by Białka) - 2nd in the 7-9 year old mares class and Norma (bred by Michałów) - 1st in the 10 year old mares and above class. Furthermore in the 2 year old colts class Fuerte (bred by J. Dobrzyński) placed 4th and in the 10 year old and above stallions class Girlan-Bey (bred by M. Bogajewicz) placed 2nd.
The Dubai show's budget and prizes to be won by competing horses makes it one of the highest subsidized shows in the world, drawing horses of the highest quality.
