Dressage Is Underway at Leg 2 of Poland’s Strzegom Summer Tour

More than 300 horses (and ponies!) stand ready in Strzegom, Poland this week to contest the second leg of the Strzegom Summer Tour, with double the entries from Leg 1 earlier this month. The event features five international divisions, from short-format one-star through four-star levels, as well as a two-star class for ponies.

Among the 67-horse CCI4*-S entry list: German monoliths Michael Jung, who will bring forward his 2019 European Championships partner fischerChipmunk FRH and Julia Krajewski who is entered with Samourai du Thot. Other star-studded entries include Tim Lips (NED), Yoshiaki Oiwa (JPN), Andreas Dibowski (GER), Sandra Auffarth (GER), and Sara Algotsson-Ostholt (SWE).

We will also see the leading Polish riders, including the whole podium of last year’s national championships: Paweł Spisak, Mateusz Kiempa and Joanna Pawlak.

The event begins Thursday with two days of dressage. Dutch eventer Raf Kooremans has the early CCI4*-S lead with Dimitri N.O.P., a 12-year-old KWPN gelding (Vaillant x Jorine, by Enrico) on a score of 25.2. This pair finished 3rd in leg 1 of Strzegom two weeks ago — the represented the Netherlands in two Nations Cup events last year. Michael and Julia are still to come on Friday, and we expect that they’ll be challenging one another for the lead.
