On February 4th Michałów Stud hosted a meeting with breeders - members of the Polish Arabian Horse Breeders ssociation. The President of Białka Stud was also in attendance. The guests had the opportunity to see this year's foals and breeding sires. During the conference part of the meeting the President of Michałów Stud presented suggestions regarding the cooperation of state studs with private breeding. The conclusions that have been drawn from this discussion will be presented at the next PAHBA meeting.

We invite you to take a look at our offer of breeding sires for the 2017 season.
