Pride of Poland 2022



With thank you to all those present at the auctions and those who were with us on-line, and with congratulations to the happy buyers - we present a recollection of the Pride of Poland and Summer Sale prepared by Arabian Essence.


As the organisers of the XLIV Polish National Arabian Horse Show in Janów Podlaski we are extremely pleased with the results of our event, which gathered a very large, as for the present, difficult times, number of 120 horses at the Polish National Championships. The Honorary Patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland - Andrzej Duda and the personal presence of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development - Henryk Kowalczyk undoubtedly raised the rank and prestige of the event organised in the magnificent surroundings of the historical Janów Podlaski Stud.


The Organising Committee of the XLIV Polish National Arabian Horse Show and the Pride of Poland and Summer Sale auctions would like to thank all those who have supported us with their presence and hard work in our efforts to make this, the oldest in its history Arabian horse show in Poland and one of the first in its tradition Arabian horse auctions in the world, organised together on the Polish grounds, become an opportunity for sports rivalry, but first and foremost a place to meet and an opportunity to spend those few days in a wonderful atmosphere well known to the regulars of Arabian horse shows.

We are very grateful to you - professionals and, above all, people with passion, who often sacrifice their free time for the good of the common enterprise - for your help and support in organising and coordinating the course of this year's show and auction in Janów Podlaski.

We are pleased with the results and hope that you share our sentiments. See you there!

Summer Sale Auction


The SUMMER SALE auction concluded a four-day event at the Janów Podlaski Stud. A total of 25 pure bred Arabian horses were put up for sale in the auction by the state studs (Janów Podlaski, Michałów and Białka) and private breeders. 19 of them found buyers. In total, the sale yielded a result of 402,000 euros. The highest price was achieved by Michalow's Wieża Orientu (Tower of Orient in Polish), which was auctioned for 81,000 euro by a buyer from Belgium. This is by far the highest amount achieved at a Summer Sale auction in the last few years. The organisers are well satisfied with the introduction of the hybrid auction system. Bidding via Equibid has resulted in more dynamic bidding and good financial results.
