The 22nd General Meeting of the PAHBA took place at the Zamek Biskupi resort in Janów Podlaski during the 7th and 8th of April, 2018. On Saturday, the most important in the reporting session was the discussion on the proposition of a new Statute. Due to several significant suggestions and propositions of changes from the members, it was decided to include new amendments which need to be consulted with an attorney. Later a resolution was adopted on voting for the statute by way of circulation.
In the seminar part Professor Krystyna Chmiel went through the main objectives of the "Polish Arabian horse breeding program", which resulted in an interesting discussion on the continuation of sire and dam lines in breeding, the consequences of their loss, but also the point of protecting them and finally - trends in breeding. Despite a cancelled panel discussion on the dilemmas of a show judge there still was a converstaion regarding judging and the situation in ECAHO.
The last part of the program was the announcing of the "2017 Breeder of the Year" in the show category. This year the award went to Małgorzata and Józef Pietrzak for the achievements of the colt El Shaad.
As previously announced, on Sunday the present at the Meeting members of PAHBA were invited to Janów Podlaski Stud for the presentation of the 2018 foal crop. The weather was marvelous: it was sunny, warm and pleasant. The mares and their produce made a good impression. Several foals are very promising. We would like to thank Janów Podlaski Stud once more for the chance to see the horses.
