With great sadness we announce you that Erwin Escher passed away suddenly on Friday 13th in the age of 57 years. Last week in full strenght seen in Wels, this weekend awaited in Berlin where he never arrived... Nobody can imagine any major show without him and his camera. He was author of thousands of Arabian horses photos, breeder of Straight Egyptians and among all lovely person with great sense of humour.
Erwin, we will miss you!
Dear show organizers,
the Show Commission on the last meeting approved the new concept of ECAHO show - Breeders´ show. This show is intended only for horses which are bred and owned by the same breeding entity (same person or breeding stable).
The show will be judged by Judges who do not need to be on the ECAHO lists but they must be Breeders.
The Breeders´ show rules will appear in printed version of the Blue Book 2017, however, it is valid since the SC meeting and you can affiliate it already in 2016 without late affiliation surcharge.
On this link you can download the Rules for Affiliation of the Breeders´ show: RULES

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.
