Album Notes
PATH TO GLORY: The Rise & Rise of the Polish Arabian Horse
A Documentary Film by Horsefly Films

“Trace our present day's strength to its source and you'll find that man's path to glory is strewn with bones of the horse."-- Unknown

It can be said that the history of man is the history of the horse. Nowhere is that more true than in Poland and their beloved Arabian horse—their greatest national treasure. This is the strange, unexpected story of far-flung lands as disparate as Egypt and the Arabian desert, and the long-suffering Slavic kingdom of Poland coming together in war and in peace and influencing one another through the living history written on the backs of centuries of horses. With interviews, rare archival footage and photographs previously lost to history, this film documents the unlikely, triumphant story of Poland’s entrance onto the world stage through the breeding of one animal and how a beleaguered nation rose up, coming full circle from desert sands to the hallowed halls of Europe to serve as the wellspring for the greatest Arabian horses in the world.

The modern Arabian Horse owes its stature in the pantheon of equine greatness to its roots in Poland and the breeding genius of the famed Polish studs. Established by Alexander I to re-supply cavalry horses, the Polish studs became Arabian breeders of great renown and today, Poland is the source of a great river of legendary Arabian Horses. Nowhere on earth has the Arabians' survival been more severely challenged, yet through their never-ending efforts, despite world wars and years of political oppression, Poland has tirelessly worked to produce the finest Arabian horses in the world.

This film is written, shot, directed. edited and produced by Horsefly Films, the creative team of just two: Sophie Pegrum and Jen Miller, who were allowed unique access to the State Studs of Poland and archives worldwide in the making of this film. Not just for horse enthusiasts, the film chronicles a little-known fascinating history of Poland’s greatest passion.
