Baborówko, 6 March 2020 — Once again during the Festival, the total prize money for the international classes will reach approx. 100 000 EUR. This places the Festival among the ten international eventing shows with the highest prize pool in the world – and the only one from Poland. Equestrian Festival Baborówko will take place at Palace Baborówko Equestrian Centre from the 21st until the 24th of May.
The Festival will once again host five international classes: CCI4*-L, CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S, and CCIYH2*-S for young horses. Less experienced riders will have the chance to compete in national classes.
What’s most important, the CCI4*-L class will be the last chance to achieve the minimum eligibility requirements to perform at the 2020 Olympics for riders from those countries that have already secured their ticket to Tokyo. The cross-country course for the class will reach the distance of approx. 6000 metres, with 40 jumps to go over in about 10 minutes.
The class with the highest prize pool will be the CCI4*-S, where the winner will cash a cheque for 100 000 PLN.
Baborówko Equestrian Festival will take place from the 21st until the 24th of May and will be carried out in the classic format. Thursday and Friday are dressage days, Saturday brings cross-country trials, and Sunday is the time for showjumping and prizegiving ceremonies.
Traditionally, on Saturday and Sunday, the organizers have prepared shows, a fair of equestrian equipment as regional products, and many attractions for families and children.
