What a fantastic day it´s been - The riders and horses has been as striking as the sun today, resulting in a rewarding day with lots of great sport. Lots of water to both humans and horses keeps everybody on top – and an occasional carrot perhaps to the horses!

We could not have asked for a better start as we kick of the 14th edition of The STRZEGOM HORSE TRIALS. The sun is shining from a blue sky so it´s perfect out door weather for both horses and riders. Caps, sunglasses and shots are everywhere! Fingers crossed that the sun will stay on for the weekend.
It´s a busy afternoon here at the Strzegom Horse Trials as the horse trucks keep arriving from all over Europe. Linda Algotsson, Karin Donkers, Ingrid Klimke, Stefano Breciaroli and many more has already arrived or on their way to this week’s event.
2016 is a year of big changes on a cross country course. Those changes prepare our hippodrome for a unique occasion coming next year- European Championships.
The biggest investment, which we can take advantage of even in this season, is new, rebuilt water fence. It looks impressive at the moment.
After three years with cross country starting towards show jumping arena, where horses negotiated first few fences, now we will start in opposite direction.
