*Empres is a beautiful Pure Polish, bay Arabian stallion by Monogramm x Empressa (Probat x Emfaza). He stands 14.3hh+  and has the conformation and genetics to sire superior sport and show horses. He is an AHA Sweepstakes Nominated Sire.

*Empres was born at Michalow State Stud, Poland in 1995, under the direction of Ignacy Jaworowski. As a three year old he was raced at the Warsaw track. He stood at stud at Michałów and other Polish stud farms for three years, siring 25 foals in Poland. Many of these have gone on to prove themselves on the track and at shows in Europe. Some of these have produced highly successful offspring themselves.

In 2002, *Empres was sold to Klarenbeek Arabians, Netherlands, where he was shown with great success and used at stud.  He was imported to the US in 2007 and was shown at a number of shows including Scottsdale where he achieved Top Fives and Top Tens in halter and sport horse.  

*Empres arrived in Canada in April 2011 - and is very proudly owned by Prue Critchley, Manitoba.  He has continued with a very successful show career.

*Empres has been described as a kind and well mannered stallion with a "teddy bear" disposition. Loved by many across the world.
