Abstract :

The exchange of breeding material between countries caused by the needs of horse users is very
intensive. The need for obtaining the sport horse was the reason to create a new Polish breed based on crossbreeding with foreign breeds. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of different sires’ breeds on three body measurements and body conformation score of Polish sport horse breed – SP. The past (I Studbook) and present (performance tests results) were analysed with the analysis of variance. The effect of the sires’ breed estimated on all data was significant for all body measurements and body conformation score. The basic body measurements of horses sired by Hanoverian, KWPN and Holstein stallions were found greater than for the progeny of Polish sires.
Horses sired by foreign stallions as evaluated by selectioners showed body measurements and body
conformation score to be higher than in those sired by Polish stallions.
