The purpose of the project Legends of Polish Equestrian (www.plpj.pl) is to remind and emphasize the role of people, Polish patriots, who contributed in a special way to the development of breeding, equestrian sport and hippo art in Poland. We will also show horses that, with their results at the world's hippodromes, have gone down in the history of Polish horse breeding, equestrian sport and horse racing. Many Polish artists were in love with these beautiful animals, which they immortalized in their paintings, photographs and sculptures. We will also mention them.

This project will also emphasize the role of historical and equestrian events, which in a special way contributed to building a positive image of Poland in the world.

If, as a result of its implementation, young people learn about the interesting and fascinating history of Poland, shown through the prism of history, horse breeding, equestrian sport and racing, we will consider that the project has fulfilled its task.

Legends of Polish Equestrianism were entered into the Register of Journals and Magazines on November 12.11.2021, 979, by decision of the District Court in Bielsko-Biała, XNUMXst Civil Division (register no. XNUMX).
