Baborówko, March 11th, 2021 — On the last weekend of May, Baborówko near Poznań will traditionally host Equestrian Festival Baborówko – an international eventing show. 6 international classes: CCI4*-S, CCI4*-L, CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S, CCIYH2*-S for 6-year-old horses, and a CCI1* will be played out from the 27th until the 30th of May. The CCI4*-S will once again serve as the Polish Eventing Championships for senior riders.
Thanks to the support of the patron of the show, Mr Roman Roszkiewicz, Equestrian Festival Baborówko will once again present a remarkable prize pool in Polish eventing. The money in the CCI4*-S, the main class of the show, will reach over 70,000 EUR, and the winner will earn a cash prize of 22,000 EUR. “The cooperation with Mr Roman Roszkiewicz, the patron of Equestrian Festival Baborówko, has been our great honor for a few years now,” says Henryk Święcicki jr., the director of the show. “Especially now, in these unique times, the support for professional sport is extremely important. That is why we are very grateful that we can once again count on Mr Roman Roszkiewicz to help us create Equestrian Festival Baborówko.”
The CCI4*-S will be the playground of Polish Eventing Championships for seniors – for the third time in Baborówko. Poland’s most titled eventer – Paweł Spisak – will have the chance to defend his eight title. Less experienced riders or those with younger horses can compete in the national CNC 100 class.
Two driving classes for pairs are a novelty this year. Both L and N classes will be played out over two days: dressage on Saturday and combined marathon on Sunday. “The modernization of our infrastructure, which we finished last year, makes it possible for us to organize various types of shows. Baborówko now offers two new quartz arenas with drainage systems and a professional grass hippodrome,” says Henryk Święcicki jr.
The show in Baborówko is being organized during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, but also during the Equine Herpes Virus epidemic. “Many years of experience in organizing equestrian competitions allow us to prepare the event with the highest safety standards. We are more than prepared to host Equestrian Festival Baborówko in a safe way for both people and horses,” Henryk Święcicki jr. summarizes.
Equestrian Festival Baborówko 2021 will take place at Baborówko Equestrian Centre, from the 27th until the 30th of May, 2021.
