CAVALIADA Tour: a higher rank of the largest equestrian cycle in Poland
CAVALIADA Tour once again hosts the qualifications and final of the Central European League of the Show Jumping World Cup. Additionally, the organisers increased the rank and prize pool of most competitions in the series. The first stop will be the CSI3*W and CSI Am-A competitions in Warsaw.
November, December and February are the months in which four editions of the largest equestrian event in Poland – CAVALIADA Tour – will take place. This season, show jumping competitions will be held at an even higher level. Two editions will achieve the prestigious rank of four stars.
CAVALIADA’s mission since its inception has been the development and popularisation of equestrian sport in Poland. This is possible only by systematically raising the bar for both competitors and organisers. – says Jakub Patelka, Director of CAVALIADA Tour.
A higher rank of competition is not everything. Three of the four locations of CAVALIADA Tour will be included in the Central European League of the Show Jumping World Cup. As was the case during the last two seasons, Krakow will be the Host City of the final of the Central European League of the World Cup and the final of the CAVALIADA Tour. CAVALIADA is also the largest Fair of Equestrian Equipment and Accessories.
CAVALIADA Tour first stop: Warsaw
There will be 9 competitions held as part of CSI3*W. The big round will start on Thursday with the Speed Masters (145 cm) competition. On Friday, there will be a competition with jump-off (145 cm, prize pool of PLN 108,700) included in the world ranking, which will also open competition in the CAVALIADA Tour 23/24 ranking. This series will also include the Sunday’s Grand Prix (150 cm). The prize pool here is as much as PLN 217,000, which gives the opportunity to compete for more points in the FEI ranking (80 for the first place). Additionally, this competition will be included in the Central European League of the World Cup. But this is not all. The ranking class competition on Saturday afternoon will be the middle round final (145 cm with competition, prize pool of PLN 108,700).
– This will be my third start at CAVALIADA in Warsaw. My main destination has always been Poznań, where I have competed many times since 2006. CAVALIADA is a well-organised competition at the highest level. The audience is amazing. Competing in front of full stands always gives me great joy, which is why I’m always happy to come back – says Felix Hassmann, three-time winner of the CAVALIADA Grand Prix in Poznań.
CAVALIADA Tour also for amateurs
There is also room for less experienced competitors in the CAVALIADA programme. Two competitions will be held every day as part of CSI Amateurs. The smaller round covers 110/110/115 cm classes, and the bigger one – 120/125/125 cm. This season, the CSI Amateur competitions will be included in a series and the winners will be determined in February during the CAVALIADA Tour final in Krakow. Details and regulations will be published by the organisers soon.
Higher comfort in Warsaw
New amenities in the COS Torwar hall have been prepared for those who decide to take part. This year, the ground will be made of white quartz sand, and two tent warm-up areas will be used to warm up and train horses at other times than before competitions. For better comfort during the competition, the organisers encourage you to take advantage of the VIP offer, which includes two packages – VIP (VIP Tribune and VIP Zone) and VIP GOLD (table box and VIP Zone).
