We received news that at the age of 29 years old ECAHO (Pepton – Etruria/Palas), bred at Janów Podlaski, has passed away. ECAHO is the winner of such titles as Polish National Senior Champion Stallion, Poznań Senior Champion Stallion, San Fernando Valley Senior Champion Stallion, US Region II Champion Stallion and US National Top Ten Stallion. But he is first and foremost known as the sire of outstanding mares and broodmares, such as EBERIA, EMANDA, OLITA, PALMETA, ALHAMBRA and PALLAS-ATENA. His dam is the highly esteemed ETRURIA, the first Polish Arabian chosen to compete at the Salon de Cheval, where she won the title of Junior Champion Mare. Her next honors were the titles of World Senior Champion Mare, Polish National Senior Champion Mare, European Senior Reserve Champion Mare and WAHO Trophy honoree for most outstanding Arabian horse of Polish breeding.
