Behind us is the second edition of the All-Polish Arabian Horse Championships, held on the 15-16th of July in Radom. One of the most satisfied participants of the show was definitely Marek Kondrasiuk, whose two stallions won both gold medals (CALATORIO - junior stallions; CALATEON - senior stallions). What's interesting is that the winners are full brothers - by Vitorio TO and out of Calatea by Ekstern. Reasons for joy were also with Białka Stud, who thanks to PERFINKA (Esparto - Perfirka/Gazal Al Shaqab) took home the senior mare gold medal and the silver junior stallion medal for MILIAN (Lawrence El Gazal - Mila/Ararat). Whereas the largest number of medals was awarded to Michałów Stud: a junior bronze for WORONIN (Vitorio TO - Wilda/Gazal Al Shaqab), a senior silver for KABSZTAD (Poganin - Kwestura/Monogramm), a senior bronze for LARANDO (QR Marc - Laranda/Ekstern) and a junior gold for EMANOLLA (Vitorio TO - Emandoria/Gazal Al Shaqab), who was also chosen as Best in Show.
