Poland's Top Horse Show Goes to Warsaw for National Ceremony

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Polish agriculture authorities say a renowned Arabian horse show will be moved this year from its home in eastern Poland to Warsaw for ceremonies marking 100 years of the nation's independence.

The show is traditionally held at the Janow Podlaski breeding farm and precedes an auction of horses there.

Authorities said Friday this year it will be held in Warsaw from Aug. 10-12 as part of the year's independence anniversary celebrations. The auction will be held in Janow a week later.

The governor for the Janow area, Mariusz Filipiuk, said the move would hurt both the breeding farm's traditions and local businesses.

It was the latest hurdle for the breeding center under Poland's conservative government, which fired the farm's experienced head in 2016 and the new chief just last week.
