Two sil­ver medals and one bronze for Poland at 2016 FEI World Driving Championships for Young Horses

Three out of four Silesian horses come back with medals from the second edi­tion of the FEI World Driving Championships for Young Horses in Mezohegyes (HUN). The horses were driv­en by two suc­cess­ful Polish ath­letes Weronika Kwiatek and her broth­er Bartlomiej.

Two sons of a fam­ous Silesian sire Lokan placed on po­di­um in the biggest class of the cham­pi­on­ships – the 7-​year-​olds. Both of them scored high in walk and level of train­ing. Weronika and her own stal­lion Epilog śl (by Lokan, out of Egida by Nomen), bred by Ksiaz Stallion Depot won sil­ver medal, while Bartlomiej and Bazyli śl (by Lokan, out of Bazylia by Palant), bred by Ksiaz Stallion Depot, owned by Grzegorz Świątek, claimed bronze medal.

A mare driv­en by Bartlomiej, the 5-​year old Rebelia śl (by Hutor, out of Regencja by Bank), bred by SO Książ, owned by OHZ Kamieniec Ząbkowicki, placed second in her age. She also scored high in walk and edu­ca­tion.

The 6-​year old stal­lion Imbred śl (by Pikolo, out of Izyda by Mundial), bred by Grzegorz Świątek, owned and driver by Weronika placed fifth in the fi­nal.

The second in a row suc­cess of young Polish-​bred horses in the FEI World Driving Championships is a prove of a very high level of Silesian horse breed­ing pro­gramme. It also means that a co­oper­a­tion with top world drivers like Kwiatek sib­lings was a very good choice.
