We sincerely congratulate all breeders, owners, riders and drivers of Polish-bred horses competing in Cavaliada Tour! For more results please visit Cavaliada website.
On the other hand, Cavaliada is not only top-level sport, it is also leisure. Therefore, one more time, thanks to Polish Horse Breeders Association and Agricultural Property Agency, spectators could watch a series of special shows. Vaulting team “Volteo” presented a gymnastic piece of art; and “JKS Jagodne” equestrain club, Janów Podlaski State Stud, Pępowo State Stud and Łąck Stallion Depot presented various types of carriages. A draft horse vs people tug of war is a tradition already. This time two groups competed against a stallion from Kętrzyn Stallion Depot, and it was ladies not gents who won with the horse!
