FEI Pony European Championships – follow the competition live
- Written By:
With our riders arrived and settled into the Stragona Equestrian Center in Strzegom, Poland, it’s time to look ahead to this year’s FEI Pony European Championships and wish our two individual representatives the very best of luck.
Five exciting days of competition gets underway this Wednesday in the Morawa hippodrome where Europe’s leading competitors aged 12 to 16 and their ponies will go head-to-head for team (for those nations fielding teams) and individual championship honours. The British riders, competing as individuals, will be hoping for personal bests and spots in Sunday’s Freestyle finals, all with the hope of bringing home an elusive medal.
The Polish venue will host the championships in the three Olympic disciplines: dressage, eventing and show jumping, with all three played out in one place and time.
