420 horses have been submitted to compete at Strzegom October Festival. Morawa has not yet seen so many competitors!
International eventing competition Strzegom October Festival finishes the 2018 sport season in Stragona Equestrian Centre. It’s the last chance this year for the audience to see equestrian competitions at the hippodrome in Morawa.
Athletes from 22 countries will compete in 6 international and four national classes. A lot of well-known names can be found among the athletes competing at the show, including the Olympic champion and the first rider ever to have held the titles of European, World, and Olympic champion at the same time, Michael Jung (GER); Andreas Dibowski (GER), the team Olympic champion from Hong Kong; and Emma Tattersall (GBR), the team gold medallist at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon. When it comes to athletes from Poland, we’ll have the opportunity to see, among others, Jan Kamiński, the Polish national champion from this year, and Paweł Spisak, the most titled Polish eventer.
Strzegom October Festival starts on Thursday. During the first two days the athletes will present their horses at the beautiful and harmonious dressage trial. The cross-country test, an obstacle course in full gallop, the most spectacular of the trials, will be held on Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday the audience will have the opportunity to see the final playoffs, showjumping and cross-country, which will determine the winners.
Entry and parking are free of charge.
