A month ago, he won the Hamburg Derby, one of the most prestigious competitions in the world, and now he has triumphed in the PKO Bank Polski Grand Prix.

My horse jumped great throughout the whole competition without making a single mistake. Pessoa C is only 8 years old, so I’m even more pleased with this victory. The course was very demanding today, only three clears and a very fast jump-off, so I am very proud. I think the triple combination was the most difficult, a lot of found it tricky” says Marvin Jungel.

ORLEN Summer Driving, i.e. three horse-drawn carriage driving classes held from Friday to Sunday, provided fans with an incredible spectacle, and each ride was accompanied by loud applause. As Bartlomiej Kwiatek, the winner of two of the three ORLEN Summer Driving competitions, emphasizes, there is no more beautiful feeling when, when showing the results of one’s hard work, the people give the energy right back to the athletes, showing that they really love it.

Those two minutes we spend in the arena and then that applause after the round – it’s amazing, and it doesn’t matter who won, or if someone made mistakes. That’s not important. What’s important is that it’s fun, there’s this power that comes from the people, and this, in turn, motivates us, the riders, to train harder, drive better and better, develop and travel hundreds of kilometers to shows such as CAVALIADA Świnoujście, where the number of spectators and the way they cheered us on was something really beautiful,” says Bartłomiej Kwiatek.
