The winner of the CCI4*-L class, the most difficult of all during Strzegom October Festival, was Harry Meade with the 10-year-old Superstition.

The British rider took the lead after a clear round in the cross-country. Even one knockdown and a slight tardiness in the showjumping could not threaten his leading position. Second place went to the four-time Olympic champion, Andrew Hoy (AUS) with Vassily de Lassos. The pair went clear in the cross-country and jumped up from the 10th to second position before the jumping. Maxime Livio (FRA) with Vegas des Boursons finished third. The leader after dressage – Kylie Roddy (GBR) with Carden Earl Grey – was not as fast in the XC and the time penalties decided that she would finish as eighth.

The best Polish rider in the class was Małgorzata Korycka riding Canvalencia, as they finished at the 14th position.

Strzegom October Festival was record-breaking when it came to the number of entries. Over 440 horses have galloped through the hippodrome in Morawa. For four days, the audiences had the chance to see riders from 28 countries, including, for the first time, Mexico and Turkey. Athletes competed in seven international and three national classes at various difficulty levels.

The best rider of the CCI4*-S was Andreas Dibowski with the 16-year-old FRH Butts Avedon. A clear round in the showjumping gave him the lead in the class, and even after a slight overtime in the cross-country he was still victorious. Second place went to Nicolas Wettstein (ECU) with Meyer’s Happy, and third to Lea Siegl (AUT) with Fighting Line.

The CCI3*-L podium was dominated by Germany. First place, after a clear cross-country, went to Ann-Catrin Bierlein riding Auf Geht’s Fraeulein Hummel. Calvin Böckmann with Altair de la Cense was second, and Nadine Marzahl with Victoria 108 was third.

For the first time in Strzegom, we had a rider from India as the winner of the CCI3*-S class. Fouaad Mirza with Dajara 4 took home the first place, beating Swedish athletes Sandra Gustafsson with Kaminskij and Aminda Ingulfson with Hot Cup VH.

The CCI2*-L was divided into two sections. The best rider of section A was Jrina Giesswein (SUI) with Chester SP, and the winner of section B was Brandon Schäfer-Gehrau with Florentine. The CCI1*-Intro belonged to Hanna Jensen (GER) with EH Clara.

The CCIP2*-L class for ponies was dominated by German riders. The best of them was Jule Krueger riding Mas Que Dos.

The national “one star” class win went to Miroslav Trunda (CZE) with Teqila Ruf. Jule Krueger (GER) with Hulingshofs Winchester was the best in CNC L. The best result of the CNC L18 class was of Julia Kałużyńska (POL) with Kalma. The easiest class of the show – CNC LL – went to Eliška Orctova (CZE) with Kirea.

Michael Jung (GER) with the 10-year-old Lennox 364 won the CI-long3* class, the most prestigious class during Strzegom October Festival.

It was an exhilarating showjumping trial played out between the current Olympic champion and the team gold medallist from this year’s World Equestrian Games, Gemma Tattersall (GBR). Michael Jung, competing on three horses, has taken the first three places after the dressage test. Gemma Tattersall changed the game after the cross-country trial, taking the lead with a clear round in time with the 8-year-old Chilli Knight. The British rider was unlucky in the showjumping trial, with the last fence down taking away her lead and leaving her at the third position overall. Michael Jung had two clears at the showjumping: he won the class with Lennox 364 and took second place with Corazon.

“I’m very happy about Lennox and Corazon; they are both really good horses, especially Lennox did a very nice dressage test; he’s a super mover. I had a great feeling about our ride in the cross country; he’s in a super condition; he jumped everything very easily. The showjumping is not his best specialty, but it went really well; he was really strong and gave me a great feeling. I’m very happy that he’s back after his injury,” said Michael Jung after his win.

The best Polish rider of the class turned out to be Mateusz Kiempa with the Polish-bred Grand Supreme, and the pair took 14th place overall.

Strzegom October Festival was record-breaking when it comes to the number of horses that competed during the show. 420 horses with riders from 22 countries took part in 6 international and 4 national classes at different levels of difficulty.

Andreas Dibowski (GER) won the CI-short 1* class with the 15-year-old FRH Butts Avedon. The leader after dressage and showjumping, Jule Wewer (GER), had a fall at the cross-country trial, resulting in an elimination. Jerome Robine (GER) took second place with Guccimo R, and third went to Janneke Boonzaaijer (NED) with Campbelle WS. The best Polish rider in the class, Paweł Spisak (POL) with Admirał, was fourth.

The podium of the CI-long 2* class belonged to women. Anais Neumann (GER) was the best in the class with Pumuckel E. She took the lead after dressage, had a clear round in the cross-country, and even one knockdown at the showjumping trial did not keep her from winning the class. Second place went to Kari Ingrid Gunzenhäuser (GER) with Let’s Dance 73, and third to Eliska Orctová (CZE) riding Bonus 1. The best Polish athlete in the class was Helena Zagała with Contendro Lady, finishing at the 7th position.

Germany took over the CI-short 2* class. Anna Lena Schaaf won the class with Fairytale 39, second was Calvin Böckmann with Altair de la Cense, and third place went to Antonia Baumgart with Lamango. Paweł Spisak (POL) with Paco finished the class at the 9th position.

The CI-long 1* class was played out in two sections. In section A, victory belonged to Kaya Thomsen (GER) with Horseware’s Bary, and in section B the winner was Michael Jung with Go For S.

In the national 1* class the best score belonged to Michał Knap (POL) with Postman Pat. Irene Mia Hastrup (DEN) won the CNC P class, and in CNC L, victory belonged to Jörn Warner (GER) riding Lord Fauntleroy K. Oliwia Wolak (POL) with Pirella won the CNC L18 class, and Madeleine Brugmann (NED) was victorious in CNC LL with Chica Mia.
