With plans well under way to set up a new Arabian Horse Show in the Polish calendar, the PAHBA has turned to the Agricultural Property Agency to support the ECAHO affiliation for this new event. Today we received an answer from the APA President, Waldemar Humięcki, which can be found in its original (Polish) form here.
In it the APA informs that as a full ECAHO member it will NOT support and offer recommendation for this new show to be held in Cracow in September. The reason? The APA believes that the PAHBA does not have sufficient experience in independent organization of national C-ranked shows, which can result in a lower quality of the organized event. However, the APA may rethink this decision in the future, if the show turns out to successful in terms of organization and attendance.
Janów Podlaski Stud has published the program and rules of the Polish National Arabian Horse Show on their website, as well as the entry form. The show will take place on the 12-14th of August. The deadline for entries is July 15th.

The Bruges Arabian Horse Event, encompassing both the national and international show, took place this weekend on the 18-19th of June.
In the national event first place in class (and later the junior stallion silver medal) went to the yearling YAMIN ATHBAH (BE) out of Michałów's ELLISSARA, bred by Athbah Stud. A class victory (stallions aged 4 years and above) was also scored by DAVOS K.A. (BE), son of Michałów's DAJANA, bred by Knocke Arabians, who took the senior stallion gold medal in the finals.
Whereas the international competition gave second place to the yearling filly DUJA ATHBAH (BE) out of Janów's ANDALUZJA, bred by Athbah Stud. In another series of the yearling fillies third place went to TARFAH ATHBAH (BE) out of ERMINA, bred by SAMKO P.U.H. Whereas in the 4-6 year old mares class SAN HASSA (Hassan Ashiraf - Sosenka), bred by Andrzej Piwowarski and owned by Chloe Glover, placed sixth.
On June 14th, the official ECAHO website announced the disaffiliation of the West Coast Cup show. The show was initially scheduled to take place on August 6-7th, however the organizer asked to change the date to July 23rd-24th. The Show Commission did not approve of this change, because it clashed with other shows taking place during the same weekend, whereas the organizer did not accept any other dates.
In regard to the above ECAHO announced that any ECAHO official (judge, DC member, ringmaster) officiating at this show will be suspended from the respective list.
