Stadnina Koni Janów Podlaski Sp. z o.o.


Janów Podlaski is the oldest state stud farm in Poland.It was founded in 1817 as a result of the Congress of Vienna on the initiative of the Kingdom of Poland and approved by Tsar Alexander I.The stud farm is located about 2 km from Janów in Wygoda.During the First World War, the stud was evacuated to Russia. None of the evacuated horses returned to Poland, so new horses of various breeds came to Janów after Poland regained its independence.Most of the stud buildings had been destroyed by this time, but the pasture land was still largely usable.

The stud farm with its extensive pastures along the River Bug and beautiful 19th century stables is considered a horse paradise. The clock stable “Zegarowa” and the main stallion stable “Czolowa” date back to 1848 and 1841.

Most of the horses that moved into Janów Podlaski after the First World War were thoroughbreds and Anglo-Arabians. They formed the basis for the breeding of cavalry horses. During the Second World War, the stud lost over 80% of its stock. The remaining horses were evacuated to Germany in 1944.

In 1946, the government in Poland was reorganized and the horses returned.It was not until 1950 that they were finally brought back to Janów Podlaski.

Since then, thoroughbred Arabians and Anglo-Arabians have been bred at the stud.Breeding was also intended to improve the breed of Polish workhorses. Today, the use of the horses has changed. They are increasingly used as leisure and sport horses. Every summer, the stud organizes the famous Arabian Horse Days with sales days and breeding shows. Most of the horses are sold to the USA.
