Kraków enters the World Cup league

13 January 2020

In its second edition, Cavaliada at TAURON Arena Kraków has earned greater sporting prestige. The International Federation for Equestrian Sports approved the proposal and launched a registration panel for the CSI2*W Kraków competition.

This higher prestige is represented by the letter ‘W’ added to CSI2*, which means that the Grand Prix competition will be included not only in the world ranking and CAVALIADA Tour, but also in the World Cup qualifiers. This will be the second-to-last stage of the Central European League. The final one will traditionally take place during Cavaliada Warsaw in March.

The whole sporting program of the Cavaliada show jumping is as follows: The big round starts on Thursday with a 140 cm competition, Friday will see a 145 cm competition with a jump-off (LR and CT) and Sunday will be the day for the World Cup Grand Prix with obstacles between 140 cm and 160 cm high, mentioned above. The medium round consists of two qualification competitions of 130 cm, and two finals of 135 cm – a classic two-phase race and a highly regarded Speed & Music (Saturday night). The small round is a chance for less experienced riders – 120 cm competitions with the 125 cm final. Obviously, the Venus vs Mars (Thursday evening) and Puissance competitions (Friday evening) will also take place. The prize pool amounts to PLN 311,000. The highest-priced competitions are:
– Grand Prix 140-160 (CEL WC, FEI and CAVALIADA Tour ranking) – PLN 100,000
– Large Round 145 (FEI and CAVALIADA Tour ranking) – PLN 100,000
– Speed & Music – PLN 20,000
– Puissance – PLN 18,000
– Venus vs Mars – PLN 10,000
– Medium Round Final – PLN 15,000
– Small Round Final – PLN 10,000

Polish contestants can be registered by PZJ at zgloszenia@pzj.pl.
Each of the contestants can declare three horses and, additionally, a fourth one for the Puissance competition.
