During the 8-9th of June, 2019 Białka Stud near Krasnystaw held the Polish National Junior Małopolska Breed Championships.
Janów Podlaski Stud was represented by 4 horses. In the yearling colts class by AGIAS AA (Emark – Agrykola / Divisor xx) and BENGALI AA (Chestnut Park All that Jazz – Begina / Efekt); in the yearling fillies class by EWILLA AA (Ekolog – Emarilla / Decoration) and in the two year old fillies class by ELIANA AA (Efekt – Elinda / Dounba xx).
The horses were evaluated in hand and later the yearlings were presented freely in the corridor, while the two year olds jumped freely in the corridor.
The year old colt BENGALI AA was highly evaluated in hand and after a great presentation in the corridor, both in gallopn and trot, placed first. The commenting judge said that he was „impressive”.
AGIAS AA, highly evaluated in hand, received 2×9,5, 1×9 for type, 1,9,5, 1×9, 1×8 for head, neck and body, despite a positive assessment by the judge („very forward going, with a robust trot”) he also „lacked balance”. The colt received a lesse number of points and placed sixth.
The year old EWILLA AA also received high marks during the presentation in hand, but was evaluated not so well in the corridor („trotting up, galopping too fast, not very effetcively”). In the end she wound up out of the top five.
In the two year old fillies class we were represented by ELIANA AA. With a very high score in hand: 3×9,5 for type, 2×9,5 for head, neck and body, her score in total was 44,10 pts. She also performed well in the free jumping corridor („good in movement, dynamic, with good hindquarter work”), whe placed second.
BENGALI AA won the title of Yearling Champion Colt, ELIANA AA became Two Year Old Champion Filly. Both horses competed the next day for the titles of Polish National Junior Champions. The judges decided that BENGALI AA would be crowned as Polish National Junior Reserve Champion Colt, while ELIANA AA as Polish National Junior Reserve Champion Filly.
During the Championships in Białka we also had the oppotunity to admire the get of many stallions bred in Janów Podlaski: Barnaba, Armani, Drop, Awans, Emaks, Efekt and Emark.
