EL KAHRA is a Michałów-bred broodmare that benefits from a double dosage of her maternal stud’s E-dynasty of champions stemming from EMIGRACJA via both sire and dam. Her sire, the late EMPIRE, is a Junior Spring Show Reserve Champion, a Polish National Junior Champion, a European Junior Bronze Champion a World Junior Top Ten Stallion, a Wels International Junior Champion and a Polish National Senior Bronze Champion Stallion. He himself is the son of EMIRA – an immensely decorated champion mare with titles won all over Europe (All Nations Cup, European Championships, World Championships, Ströhen, Prague, Elran Cup, Tulip Cup, Vilhelmsborg, Chantilly, Bruges) and the Middle East (Qatar International), but what speaks about her most are the titles of Polish National Junior & Senior Champion Mare, honors that are harder to claim than the Triple Crown.

The distaff link to EMIGRACJA comes via EL KAHRA’s damline and ESPADRILLA, one of the iconic Michałów-bred MONOGRAMM daughters that have become the stud’s trademark. As a Bełżyce Senior Champion, Falborek Senior Champion and twice Polish National Senior Reserve Champion Mare, ESPADRILLA belongs to the elite collection of the chestnut sire’s Polish get with the likes of DEMONA, EKSCELLA, ESKALOPKA, ETENTA, GEORGIA, PALESTYNA, ZAGROBLA, EGZONERA, ELANDRA, EMBRA, EMOCJA, FALLADA, PALMIRA, EMMONA and last but not least, the one and only KWESTURA. 

ESPADRILLA proved that her beauty is not just skin deep and carried over her successful streak to the breeding barn by producing Esmirna’s full sister EPIKASJA (twice Junior Spring Show class Top Three finalist, competing directly in the same class as PIANISSIMA & ETNOLOGIA, respectively), ESPINILLA (Junior Spring Show Top Five Mare & Polish Nationals class Top Five finalist) & EMANDILLA (Wrocław Arabian Horse Show Weekend Junior Reserve Champion, Junior Spring Show & Polish Nationals class Top Five finalist). Esmirna herself is a class Top Three & Five honoree from performance classes at the Autumn Show in Janów Podlaski, where she exhibited flawless gaits in Dressage, Classic Pleasure, Native Costume and Polish Historical Costume classes.
