A feature of this year’s Arabian Horse Days, which encompasses the Pride of Poland Sale and the country’s National Show, was the presentation of an arabian stallion to the Janów Podlaski Stud by Bahrain’s Sheikh Isa bin Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, grandson of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.

Poland’s deputy prime minister Janusz Piechocinski was on hand for the occasion.

The stallion, Kuhailan Afasa Maidaan, is from the  historic Kuheilan Afas strain. About 100 years ago the first horses of the strain were brought to Janów Podlaski, and the lines are still present in the breed today.
