The dressage World Cup will be held in Olomouc. Riders qualified for the olympic games will also take part

An international dressage competition, including a World Cup qualifier, will be held at the Equine Sport Center in Olomouc from 23rd to 26th May. Several riders hoping to take part in the Summer Olympic Games in Paris will also be taking part.


Spectators at the Equine Sport Center in Olomouc will have the opportunity to see the top dressage horses and riders for the third time at this event, which is part of the FEI Dressage World Cup.


Thirteen horse and rider pairs from six countries are registered in the main category, with Poland represented by the largest number of participants who are preparing for the team competition at the Olympic Games in Paris. The list of CDI-W participants includes the names of six Polish riders – Anna-Maria Gawlowska, Magdalena Jura, Susanne Krohn, Filip Poszumski, Olga Safronova and Žaneta Skowronska-Kozubik. Lithuania, which qualified for the Paris Olympics in the individual category, will be represented in Olomouc by Justina Vanagaite. She was so popular with the spectators last year that the organisers decided to use her photo in the official visual presentation of the event. The following riders will also be competing in the World Cup: Jessica Dertell from Australia, Bettina Kendlbacher from Austria, Maik Kohlschmidt and Antonia von Dungern from Germany and Anna Merveld from Ireland.


Equally interesting will be the CDI3* category, where five horses from four countries will be competing. Poland will be represented by Aleksandra Poplawksa and Žaneta Skowronska-Kozubik with her second horse. Mary Hanna from Australia, Kyan Torkkeli from Canada and Shruti Vora from India will also be competing in the three-star competitions.


The Czech Republic will be represented in the CDI2* category by Petra Miki Civišová and Eva Jančaříková who will also be competing in the CDI1*. Tereza Hábová and Aneta Havlíčková will also take part in this tour. The categories for young riders will also be very interesting to watch, as the Czech Republic will have several riders in these categories. Barbora Zourková will be competing with other five riders from Australia, Austria, Norway and Poland in the under-25 category. Except for Norway, representatives of the same countries will also compete in the young riders’ competitions, where the Czech Republic will be represented by Nikola Feherová, Eliška Skřivanová, Eliška Šteflová and Johana Vášáryová.


Several promising Czech riders – Alice Hubáčková, Barbora Krejčířová, Eliška Vandasová and Johana Vášáryová – will show their skills in the junior category, where they will compete against Polish and Austrian riders and a competitor from Finland. Czech and Polish riders will compete in the children’s CDI. The Czech Republic will be represented by Anna Milena Appeltová, Liliana Hlavoňová, Alice Hubáčková, Jasmína Vášáryová and Tereza Zeusová. Vendula Fajfrlíková, Lucie Kodytková and Barbora Křenovská will compete on ponies. There will also be competitions for young horses with Michal Košťál, Linda Křenovská and Ida Vavříková presenting their horses.


“We are currently finalising the last details, including the detailed schedule, which we will present in the coming days. The event will start on Thursday and the top competitions will start on Friday afternoon, when the two top tours will be opened,” said Kristýna Koutná.
