Piotr Kochański
Breeder and Trainer, Owner

Piotr has dealt with horses since his childhood. However, he has also practiced other sports intensively.
For a boy from Bielsko-Biala town, an easy access to Beskidy mountain slopes made skiing a sport for him. Piotr was also inspired by the staggering international successes of Wojtek Fibak, the world famous Polish tennis player, who was a hero for boys wanted to play tenis between 1970-ies and 1980-ties. Piotr devoted time in his youth to these two disciplines and trained, rode, and played as a player in sports clubs in Bielsko-Biala, and later in Kraków, at the Jagiellonian University’s AZS Sport Club tenis and ski sections, and has continued these until today.
Piotr learned about horses and the countryside from his mother's beloved uncle, with whose family he was spending his summer vacations in Brzoza Królewska, a small forester's lodge near Leżajsk, since he was a small child. His mother's uncle, a high ranked officer in the Lvov District of the Polish Home Underground Army during the II WW, had "pre-war" visions and methods which he followed while raising his five sons and Piotr, making sure that the young boys grew up to be strong, determined, respectful of people and nature men. It was there, that Peter learned what a two-wheeled carriage was, how to harness a ladder cart, and first tasted of bareback riding on his uncle's trusted drought horse. Back home during the school year, however, horseback riding required Piotr to travel more extensively. Piotr took his first steps in riding in the club of Ochaby Stud, to which he had to commute about 50 km from home. Probably due to these different reasons together Piotr dreamed of living with horses, to have constant access to them and to live with these animals every day, in his own home once in future.
These dreams came true in his adult life. When in 2003 Piotr purchased a farm located in the center of Kampinoski National Park, 34 km from the Palace of Science and Culture in Warsaw, in agreement with the Directorate of the Park he began to reorganize the farm, continuing it as a horse stud farm.
Today, after 17 years of his rural education and continued investment, still being a lawyer managing one of the biggest Polish law firms awarded nationally and internationally and among other by The Lawyer magazine with "Firm of the Year 2020 Central Europe" award - Kochanski & Partners (www.kochanski.pl) in his farm "Dwór Kochań", Piotr breeds purebred Arabian horses and runs Training and Education Stables LovEnPeas Arabians founded by himself.
In LovEnPeas, with a team of trainers and riders and the managers Piotr rides his own young Arabian horses and prepares them for Endurance Rally races according to the long-term breeding and training plans.
 

Leon Kochański
Pony Supervisor, Rider

Leon, for 11 years of his life, has always been with horses. As a tiny boy, he was fascinated and thoroughly enjoyed riding on the back of Zorro, a black Shetland pony that he became enamored with and remembered for a lifetime. In the sporty, all-round training for children at Training and Education Stables LovEnPeas Arabians, Leon has been participating since the summer of 2017. Leon can already lead a horse well in three gaits, and his increasingly bold and confident gallops on our Oreo or Walnut Sabrann inspire joy and appreciation from those around him. In LovEnPeas Leon is a Pony Supervisor and a rider being prepared for sporting achievements, and if he decides that competing in equestrian events is really what he wants and needs, he has all the possibilities in here. Besides, Leon's dream is to organize a larger group of children, united by their fascination and love for horses, who would train together in the spirit of STS LovEnPeas Arabians and according to its training program for the youngest.
