PAHBA in 2015

  • participation in an educational contest organized by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage. The aim of the contest is to promote activities which propagate knowledge on cultural heritage and increase awareness regarding the value of historic monuments. The Association, by means of member Hanna Sztuka, submitted documentation covering the Polish Historical Costume class held during the European Sport Championships for Arabian horses at Janów Podlaski Stud, itself entered into the register of historic monuments.
  • an overview of Arabian horse shows organized in Poland in 2015: the Junior Spring Show in Białka, the Polish Nationals in Janów Podlaski, the 'Polska-Arabia' Festival in Buksza and the Al Khalediah European Arabian Horse Festival in Nowe Wrońska.
  • a new PAHBA website, a project coordinated by Board member Krzysztof Poszepczyński.
  • a proposition to conduct breeding inspections at private studs, similar to those at state studs.
  • a decision to close the publication of ARABY Magazine, due to the passing away of its founder, long time PAHBA President, Mrs. Izabella Pawelec-Zawadzka.
  • a proposition from Tomasz Tarczyński to organize a 'C' ranked international show for horses without titles.
  • Andrzej Wójtowicz was active in maintaining conformation-type races for Arabian horses. The Minister of Agriculture showed support for this concept, therefore the PAHBA shall submit a request to the racing organizer (Totalizator Sportowy) to plan about 30% of such races in the 2016 season.

PAHBA in 2014

  • the PAHBA co-organized and assumed patronage over the Arabian horse show calendar in Poland, just like in previous years, as well as the ECAHO European Sport Championships in Janów Podlaski and funded the prize in the race for the PAHBA Trophy,
  • members of the PAHBA often travelled to foreign shows as active breeders, which had a great impact on the promotion of Polish Arabian horses and their sales, both at auctions (the Pride of Poland and Summer Sales) and directly from studs and stables,
  • the racing group was able to maintain the rules for Arabian horse races, their distances and the purity of Polish blood; it seems reasonable to maintain the priority principle for horses born in Poland and registered in the PASB; such actions reduce the participation of Russian and German horses in races and at the same time motivate breeders to breed Polish broodmares to racing sires; there was also a proposition of organizing races for show fillies and separately for horses of French blood; these are propositions for the race plan to be reviewed by Totalizator Sportowy and to be approved by the Polish Jockey Club.
During the past 4 years the PAHBA was able to work out several important issues:
  • championships, though the number of participants is still small
  • races
  • shows, their number is growing; what's important is that they are B-ranked, allowing horses to qualify for A-rank and Title shows.
