Last weekend Polish bred horses were competing at several shows in two continents.
The biggest group took part in Scandinavian Open at Blommerod/Sweden. The three competitors from Norwegian show last weekend waiting at Blommerod – Kashira from Bełżyce Arabians, Daisy FF of Tomasz Tarczyński and Elmaran of Wojciech Parczewski were joined by Elizejka PS (Poganin – Eklejka) of Przemysław Sawicki and Espiria (Psytadel – Ekspiacja) of Lech Błaszczyk. Polish breeding was also represented by Janów Podlaski stud-bred and Dutch owned Beduin (Wojsław – Bogdanka).
And the stallions were the most successful Polish bred horses to compete at Blommerod without a doubt, being qualified to the championships – Elmaran as the winner of yearlings and Beduin not only as a winner of stallions 7-years old and above but also as the highest scored horse of the show (93 pts). At the end of the day Elmaran became Reserve Junior Champion Stallion (beaten by TA Nox by WPB Minstril’s Bayar out of Narinne/Bistro) and Beduin’s win at Seniors was a kind of formality – he was also awarded with a special perpetual trophy for the highest scored horse of the show. The other Polish horses that qualified to the awarded leaders of their classes were Kashira (3rd place) and Daisy FF (6th at the big group of 16 fillies).
At the same time in Great Britain South East Region Summer Show took place where black yearling colt Faradis (BS Black Fable – Forsycja) bred by Silvatica Black Arabians, owned by Nomaad Arabians, competed successfully gaining the second place. This was his 3rd show after the sale to Great Britain in winter this year and his third 2nd place. Soon Faradis will meet the best UK colts at the nationals in Malvern.
At Belgian town of Brecht the prestigious B show Emerald Trophy took place. The great winners of the event were the progeny of Polish-bred and owned Ekstern – the class winner, Senior Champion Mare and Best in Show became UK-owned Krystal Tiara (out of Khaprice by Fakt), and class winner of stallions 7-10 as well as Reserve Senior Champion became Eternal (out of Elegantkah by Gwizd), bred by Jadem Arabians/Belgium. Krystal Tiara has beaten the other Ekstern-daughter in her class – Faraula J (out of Fifa by Eukaliptus) bred by Jadem Arabians, that was the highest scored horse of the show for movements (3×20).
At last but not least some good news came from across the Ocean where Region 15 Champion Stallion became Janów Podlaski Stud-bred Equifor (Gazal Al Shaqab – Eqviria) on lease to Marsha Parkinson/Canterbury Farm, the highest scored 2 years old colt of the show.
