38 pairs took part in the Medium Tour Final, for the prize of Kwiaty Polskie and under the patronage of Baborówko Equestrian Association. 8 of them were clear over the first course, measuring at 140 cm.
The author of the fastest clear round in the jump-off was Poland’s Dawid Skiba aboard La Vulkano L – a horse bred in Poland by Jan Ludwiczak.
“The jump-off was demanding, because we had fast, experienced riders with good horses, so there was a lot to do and you had to take a risk. (…) The first course seemed like a classic track, which may have made some people downplay it. It turned out to be really difficult - a line of two oxers at a distance of 23 meters, a triple combination with very colorful poles - the horses reacted differently to it and it was hard to determine a good place for take off."
At CAVALIADA, for the first time, we host the course designer Magdolona Erdelyi from Hungary. Asked about his opinion Skiba replied: "You can see the differentiation. Every day the level of difficulty increases, but it also gets more interesting, especially the jump-offs. There are possibilities for tight turns, to go a little faster, or take out a stride. It gives us a range.”
The first class of the day – Small Tour, for the prize of In Spire Foundation, ended with the victory of Julia Parda (POL) with Cheyenne. Second place went to Daria Kobiernik (POL) with Donna Neva S, and third to Aleksandra Kozłowska (POL) with Nabab.
