HORSE RIDING AND BREEDING in Poland

World Wide Horse Riding Links

Horse breeding has an extremely long history in Poland. Polish horses are famous throughout the world. Highly appreciated are our full-blooded English horses, purebred Arab horses and Anglo-Arab breeds [Malopolska (southern Poland), Wielkopolska (western Poland) and Slaska (Silesia)]. Tarpans (wild descendants of original steppe horses) and huculy (a breed kept by East Carpathian mountaineers) are also bred. The lovers of these beautiful animals come to the auctions regularly organized in Warsaw, Iwno, Janow Podlaski, Ksiaz, Sopot, and Lobez. Very popular are vacations in 'the saddle'. Numerous horse breeding centres throughout Poland, possessing comfortable accommodation facilities, welcome enthusiasts of this sport. Horseback riding lessons are available for beginners; experienced riders may gallop off into the beautiful countryside. Rides in horse-drawn carriages and St. Hubertus rides are also organized.

It is also possible to hire horses and have guided rides in many of the seaside resorts, such as Debki.

The best known centers are:

  • Bialy Bor (near Koszalin, close to Gdansk on the Baltic coast)
  • Kadyny (near Elblag - north east Poland, close to the Masurian lake distric)
  • Sierakow, Czerniejewo and Iwno (near Poznan)
  • Racot (near Leszno)
  • Ksiaz (near Walbrzych)
  • Lack (near Plock )
  • Boguslawice (near Piotrkow Trybunalski - near Warsaw)
  • Janow Podlaski (near Biala Podlaska).

In addition to big, state owned stud farms, there are a number of smaller, privately owned equestrian centres. They offer riding lessons, horses to mount, organization of picnic events with bonfires and dances.
