INTRODUCTION

There are monuments of Polish literature, thanks to which Poland is known worldwide. Copernicus, Chopin and Rzewuski left behind a legacy valued on every continent, regardless of world trends. The latter is known that when describing the Arab culture – never before or since – presented in such details and in the context of the history of the Arabian horse, he made famous not only the country which he came from, but above all, the world of the Arabian Peninsula.

Count Rzewuski

In 1817 Złotobrody Emir (Gold Bearded) – as he was called, Polish magnate of the most illustrious families, obsessed with oriental hot-blooded horses, abandoned his wife and rich possessions to start intrepid adventure in the area, which was the most unexplored and unfathomable. He took part in the battles against the Turks, the knowledge of horses and the local languages gave him the recognition and friendship of 13 Bedouin tribes and was amounted to the dignity of the emir: official and military commander. He was the first European who crossed and penetrated a vast, uncharted desert of Najd in Saudi Arabia. It was he who first brought Arabian horses to Europe and began their glorious tradition of farming in our region. He bought stallions and mares for the Royal Studs Wirtemberska, Tsar Alexander I of Russia, for the French national stables in Pau, and his own possessions Sawrana in Ukraine. He lived a life full of romantic adventures. Quickly became famous among the Arabs: they told stories about him and sang songs. Juliusz Słowacki wrote about him (Pride of Vaclav Rzewuski), Mickiewicz (Farys), Vincent Pol (Hetman Złotobrody), Michal Budzynski. He appeared in paintings by January Suchodolski and Juliusz Kossak. He left behind a remarkable work “Sur les Chevaux Orientaux Provenants et des Races Orientales”, which to this day is considered an invaluable compendium of knowledge about the culture and traditions of Arab art and culture of the Arab horses: their tribes, history, virtues and vices.

Rzewuski’s MANUSCRIPT 

The original copy of this beautiful manuscript consists of 352 pages and 218,000 words contains 65 charming sketches of the Count and more than 100 other illustrations and maps. There’re a lot of portraits of Bedouin tribes in Arabia, its history, customs, culture and excellent description of the unique nomadic lifestyle. In total, more than 400 color drawings, which constitute a source of research on local culture and customs, which is also of great value for the Saudis. There are also notes, of Bedouin music 200 years old, as well as a list of some tribes. Today the Rzewuski’s manuscript is the heritage of the Arabian horse, a unique source of information for anyone interested in it.

I walked through the rocky and deserted the length and breadth of Arabia. […] I am recognized as the Emir and Sheikh in thirteen Bedouin tribes, and I use all the prerogatives attached to this dignity. So I can say that in the desert, I feel as if I were in my home country. Thorough knowledge of the local language and customs were always a great help to me in my travels in Arabia – they will serve me in my future trips. I ride a horse and wield a spear like a real Bedouin; my strong health stays unaffected by heat, or climate change. I fear not […]

JEWELRY Binding

Covered in jewelry binding, adorned in 24 carat gold and/or silver and the “Polish Diamond” so called striped flint and other gem stones to highlight the value and beauty of the original manuscript. Arabian horse silhouette on the obverse is a copy of a drawing made by Count Rzewuski located in the pages of the Volume 3. In a typical Arabic geometric plant ornamentation many natural stones have been incorporated. Among them “Polish Diamond” which is the noblest variety of flint found in the only place in the world, the former “Sandomierska Land” in Poland. Striped flint is known as the stone of optimism, perhaps because of this it is a favorite stone of the designer Victoria Beckham. __

Arabian horses

Arabian horses appeared in the Arabian Peninsula at least 2,500 years ago. They were grown in areas of Asia Minor and North Africa by nomadic Bedouin tribes. They are considered one of the oldest breeds of horses in the world. They grow in very difficult environments, and they feature light, harmonious and noble physique. These horses are very noble and elegant, lightweight body build. They figure can be entered into a square. The specific beauty is referred to as the “bouquet Arabian horse,” which consists among others: a small head pike like profile, wide forehead and large eyes, swan neck, the upper straight line from the horizontal butting highly mounted and worn tail. This breed features: a high dry tissue, smooth and elegant movements, resistance, strength at work and live, and at the same mild temper. The pure-blood Arabs are small horses, mainly gray, bay and chestnut hue. This breed is late maturing and long-living, one of the base breeds of horses, often regarded as the quintessential beauty of the horse. It is worth noting that they are very durable, they do not require breeding and they are extremely fast in gallop that in long distances they are second to none. They are also intelligent, kind, sensitive and tied to a man. “Arabs” are lively temperament horses, but always obedient.

Organized Arabian horse breeding in purity of blood in Poland dates back to the nineteenth century. The consequent wars destroyed Polish cultivation very badly. After years of rebuilding culture in the postwar period, it has begun with the export of Polish Arabians since 1960’s. The aim of breeding is to preserve the type noble of Polish Arabian and oriental beauty, which aims to maintain the leading position of the Polish horses on the global markets. It has been dozens of times that Polish Arabians won national and international championships in Europe and the Americas, including World and European Championships. Arabian horses were used to produce almost all of today’s hot-blooded horse breeds, thoroughbred English or Anglo-Arabian horses, for example. These horses are the only breed of household in Poland that has reached the world level and which breeding material is a Polish export.
