Open letter from ECAHO President concerning the appointment of new acting members of the Janów Podlaski Stud board
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
In connection with the information which I received in past days I would like to express my personal confusion about the situation and the measures adopted in Poland.
Concerning the information from official parties I would like to remark that some information published about newly appointed persons now responsible for the breeding of Purebred Arabian horses in Poland – and especially in Janów Podlaski Stud – are untrue and misleading.
Persons who were in charge in the previous times were proper members of ECAHO and its Commissions and Committees. However, the newly appointed person is not - and never was - member of any ECAHO Commission or Committee. This person is not - and never was - representative of Poland in ECAHO. This person was only acting as Disciplinary Committee member or Ringmaster at several ECAHO shows of lower categories.
Furthermore I would like to draw attention to the disturbing fact that the responsibility for breeding in Janów Podlaski stud was granted to the hands of person who is engaged in resale and taking commissions from the sales of Arabian horses. These facts are purely demonstrable.
My concern is all the greater because the experience in horse breeding cannot be acquired theoretically, but the only way to obtain such experience is a practical work. I am not aware of any such experience gained by the persons newly responsible for the breeding of Purebred Arabian horses in Poland.
Another relevant point that I would like to point out is a very important reaction of several ECAHO Officials, who in response to the above mentioned facts rejected to act at any Polish Arabian horse shows at any capacity. As an example, I attach the letter from one of the ECAHO Judges Mrs. Ann Nordén from Sweden which is supported by many other Officials. Their activities at Polish shows are pending until the situation in Poland is returned again into the hands of the most experienced and the most responsible persons, not seeking for their own profit.
I firmly believe that everything that is happening now, will soon be reset and all further steps will be accepted with regards to the development of Polish Arabian horses, not only for our own benefit a few individuals.
Jaroslav Lacina, President of ECAHO

We regret to inform you that the three most important persons of Polish Arabian horse breeding - Mrs. Anna Stojanowska, Dr.Marek Trela and Mr. Jerzy Bialobok - were dismissed on Friday 19th February 2016 from their positions (ANR Poland, Janów Podlaski Stud and Michalów Stud). Below we publish a letter, which was promptly posted on Monday morning (22.2.) to the relevant authorities in Poland. We unanimously stand up for these three experts and strongly believe that they will have chance to - at least - end up their long-time work in the breeding of Arabian horses in Poland with dignity.
