XXnd All Nations Cup took place as always – on the last weekend of September. It’s the last such important Arabian horse show before the European Championships (in October) and the World Championships in Paris (December) – that’s the reason why for the All Nations Cup always come the wold top horses to compete with each other.
This year Poland was represented by huge number of 16 horses (including 6 owned by Polish private stud farms). Pianissima (Gazal Al Shaqab – Pianosa / Eukaliptus) bred and owned by Janow Podlaski Stud was called the Junior Champion Mare with one consent! This yearling filly was 2004 Polish National Junior Champion Mare (and Best in Show) as well as 2004 Białka Junior Spring Show Champion Filly (and Best in Show) and 2004 Falborek Arabian Horse Show Champion Filly. It is the first All Nations Cup Champion bred by Janów Podlaski Stud since 1995 when Piechur (Banat – Pierzeja / Bandos) became Senior Champion Stallion. Congratulations!
