The Agra Fair took place from 20th till 25 August 2022 and is one of the leading events in the field of agriculture, forestry and the food industry in Slovenia. During the multi-day fair, a wide variety of events took place, from professional, promotional, solemn events to industry meetings and animal exhibitions. On Tuesday, the horse breeders day, the show of autochthonous horse breeds took place.
We represented our stud with a pair. Driver Janez Peternel and co-driver Miha Tavčar showed the 4-year-old mare 105 Thais and the 3-year-old gelding Conversano Barbana, both homebred. Let us mention here that the mare Thais won the Championship in Topolcianky in Slovakia in 2021.
After the performance, the Slovenian “Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food” presented awards to the best breeders. The award for 2021 was given to us – Barbana Lipizzans.
We were nominated as the best breeder because, in addition to winning the Championship 2021 in Slovakia, we also had the best male foal at the annual foal show in Lipica 2021 – Siglavy Barbana, out of 576 Barbana VII an by Lipica stud stallion 363 Siglavy Samira XXII.
