The FEI has once again entrusted us with the task of organizing the European Championships for Ponies, and for no less than three years.

The organizational success of last year’s Pony European Championships made us the natural candidate to host the next editions of the event – says Marcin Konarski, the president of the organizing committee.

The event will be the fifth European Championships organized by Stragona Equestrian Centre. The first ones, in the junior category, took place in 2012. Since 2015, every other year, the hippodrome hosted the European Championships for young riders, seniors and ponies. 

Organizing such prestigious events is a big challenge – adds Marcin Konarski – but the years of experience, a qualified team and suitable facilities make us fully ready for the task. We have a beautiful and expertly prepared hippodrome at our disposal, where horses and riders are guaranteed to have optimal conditions for training and competing. 

The event will take place from the 15th until the 19th of July in Strzegom, Lower Silesia voivodeship. Riders aged from 12 to 16 and their ponies measuring up to 149 will compete in the arenas of the hippodrome. It will be an exceptional event for the audiences. Riders will compete alongside each other in three equestrian Olympic disciplines: dressage, eventing and showjumping.
