*FIGARO PASB and FIRESTREAK
The Polish breeding program is respected
World Wide for producing horses of superior quality. it is due to the advantageous
natural conditions, the impeccable pedigrees of the Polish Arabs and dedicated breeders
striving for the best possible results. We are aspiring to uphold these standards in
our own breeding program. Our goal is to provide breeders with the best available
horses, the best available care, the best outlet for their horses and a direction in
years to come.
In 1926 the Poles organized the Polish Arabian Racing program to test the health, endurance and stamina of their horses. This program almost always eliminated horses who would not have shown weaknesses under normal circumstances. Their main criterium for excellence became the condition in which a horse returned from the track, this is far more important to the Pole's than the individual success of an animal. While certain fads in the Arabian horse industry have come and gone, the Polish-bred Arabians have held a higher value in the marketplace, they have consistently done well al the shows and they have always had exceptional results at the track.
Almost all information compiled in the following pages is directly from the Breeding of Pure Polish Arabian Horses in Poland in their Genealogical Charts by Roman Pankiewiez. I have traced the lines that will have the most influence on the foals our Stallions will produce. Also recorded is the way the poles successfully bred these lines. Hopefully this will provide the mare owners with a place to start and save the many hours of research involved in gathering his information. I hope you will find it of value. Please to don't hesitate to ask if you have questions about your particular mare, we are happy to provide personal consultation.
Sire Line-Ibrahim Or.A. imp. 1907 to Antoniny
