Congratulations to the breeder Al Jassimya Farm on the wonderful results of EQUATOR’s lease.
On 21st – 26th January the National Championships took place in UAE. Polish-bred arabian horses marked their presence quite admirably.
As usual, Polish „dominance” was mostly visible in Senior Mares’ class. We had 4 Polish-bred representatives in the main championship: Michalow’s EXPRESSJA TV (El Omari – El Medina), PROSARIA (Kabsztad – Prosna) and PUSTYNNA FIESTA (Ekstern – Pustynna Róża) as well as Białka’s CAMILIA (Piaff – Calineczka). In the local championship Janów’s CERVINIA (Enzo – Cerelia) claimed silver for her UAE owner.
The presence of Polish stallions was noticeable as well. In the main Senior Stallions’ Championship we had EL FADO (WH Justice – Enya, bred by ZPH „Strusinianka”, while in the local championship – ZWIEWNY (Maran – Znaczna) bred by Andrzej Piwowarski and LARANDO (QR Marc – Laranda) bred by Michałów Stud.
Among the younger mares 3-years-old ERALDINIA F (Emerald J – Enezja) bred by Falborek Arabians took silver in the Junior Mares Local Championship.
In the classes’ top 5 there were also: BASTIA (Ekstern – Basta, SK Janów Podlaski, mares 4+), ZADORA (Ekstern – Zariba, bred by SK Janów Podlaski, mares 4+, local championship participant) and GAJA LUNA (Psyche Keret – Gaja Iris, bred by Krzysztof Poszepczyński, 3-years-old mares).
The Championships were represented very strongly. The number of entries to every section of every class was many times above 20. This is all the more reason for being proud of the Polish-breds’ numerous successes.
The first Title show in 2019 is already behind us.
During Prince Sultan Arabian Horse Festival, taking place in Al Khalediah Farm in Saudi Arabia, 6 Polish-breds were shown.
GIRLAN BEY (Pesal – Gracja) bred by Michałów Stud was third, while Michałów’s ALBANO (Enzo – Alena) – fourth in 10+ years old stallions class.
GANGA (Emigrant – Granada) bred by Krzysztof Poszepczyński was 4th in 10+ years old mares class.
Michałów’s PIACOLLA (Enzo – Polonica) finished 5th in 7-9-years old mares class.The other Polish performers were ESIMA (Altis – Emanta) bred by Falborek Arabians and FELICJANA (Ekstern – Felicja), bred by Janów Podlaski Stud.
2-years-old ERALDINIA F (Emerald J – Enezja), bred by Falborek Arabians, was chosen Reserve Champion Filly, while GAJA LUNA (Psyche Keret – Gaja Iris) took Fillies Championship Top 5 title.
There were also two Polish-breds in the Mares Championship: Michałów’s PROSARIA (Kabsztad – Prosna) was placed 3rd. Janów’s CETARA (Ekstern – Cetula) also finished in Top 5.
In the Class’ Top 5 we could also cheer Michałów’s PROSNEGA (4-7-years old mares) as well as EKSTERA bred by Leszek Jarmuz and ESPINA bred by SK Kurozwęki (8+ years old mares)
Congratulations to all the breeders and owners.

Michałów’s EL BELISSIMA (Ascot DD – Ekliptyka/Ekstern) finished close to the Top 5, scoring good 91,17 points, while Janów’s ENCARINA (Ascot DD – Eneria/QR Marc) scored 90,25.
Our best representative – Michałów’s EMANOLLA (Vitorio TO – Emandoria/Gazal Al Shaqab), was placed 4th in her class, which gave her the championship qualification and ultimately World Top 10 title. Janów’s PREGOLA (Vitorio TO – Perespa/Enzo) finiished 6th.
We had two championship qualifiers: ALSA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Alameda/Wachlarz), bred and owned by Janów Podlaski State Stud, and recent European Champion WILDONA (Shanghai EA – Wilda/Gazal Al Shaqab) from Michałów State Stud. Both mares claimed World Top 10 titles. Janów’s POTENTILLA (Ekstern – Panonia/Eukaliptus) was awarded a prize for best movement, with impressibe 5x20 in the class.
A climax moment of the Senior Mares Championship was the last farewell performance of EMANDORIA (Gazal Al Shaqab – Emanda/Ecaho), shown by her lifelong handler Mariusz Liśkiewicz. The queen, after 13 years of splendid show career, says final goodbye to the arenas, claiming Platinum World Champion Title.
Our only contender, Białka’s PARILLUS (Ascot DD – Parilla/Enzo), has again met the bad luck, losing the Top 5 only by the type score
It was a good night for Team EQUATOR (QR Marc – Ekliptyka/Ekstern). After convincing class win and the highest score of the show (93,67) he qualified to the championship as an audience’s favorite, followed by fellow ATIUS O (Shahim Al Nakeeb – Atia Oone/Johann El Jamaal) owned by Mr Czesław Gołaszewski, who claimed marvelous 2nd place in Section A, ultimately finishing the championships in the World Top 5.
In spite of his class winning, EQUATOR wasn’t exactly a sure bet for the champion title. Fortunately, his splendid final performance convinced 5 out of 7 judges, which led him to the World Senior Champion Stallion title.
