“THE TRIPLE CROWN WINNER” TWICE; THE FIRST PLATINUM WORLD CHAMPION
Pianissima has proved as a breeding phenomenon worldwide. She was an almost ideal pure-bred Arabian horse long dreamed of by generations of breeders worldwide. She became the most award-winning and famous horse of this breed within the history of Arabian championships.
As the only Arabian horse in the history, she won the European “Triple Crown” twice. “The Triple Crown Winner” at the Continent is the title of a horse that won three most important and difficult shows within one year. The Nations Cup organized in Aachen in late September, the World Championship, i.e. European Championship (played in different places, then in Moorsele, Belgium) and the Horse Salon in Paris in December. Pianissima did this in 2004 when she started within the younger mares group and then in 2008, within the older mares championships. To this day, no horse repeated such an achievement. Every time, the judges awarded a champion title to her unanimously what is in itself a sensation.

Since 2004, i.e. since her first public show, her name thrilled the whole Arabian world – she was the greatest star and inthralled Arabian horse breeders and lovers.
She is considered an example of beau ideal and type of contemporary Arabian horse.
