Summary. There are several different methods for the cryopreservation of stallion spermatozoa, however, a generally accepted technology with quality standards does not exist. The cryopreservation process should be flexible enough from the point of view of individual differences of the stallions. The aims of the present pilot study were to assess the spermiogram of the stallions chosen for further experiments to have a baseline information about their semen quality and freezability, moreover, to find the critical points of the currently applied cryopreservation protocol in order to plan future experiments. The ejaculates of four Shagya-Arabian stallions were investigated in three repetitions. The most critical points of the semen processing protocol were the centrifugation, the equilibration and the freezing-thawing steps. In their future experiments they intend to try such alternatives of these steps, which are less harmful for stallion spermatozoa.
