Pavo Cup

During the 5 pre-selections, the horses compete for a place in the semifinals. A total of 50 starting places for the four-year-olds, 35 for the five-year-olds and 20 starting places for the six-year-olds are available. After the last pre-selection, a ranking is drawn up and it is announced which horses are highest placed and have been selected for the semi-final.

On top of the above number of starting places, additional participants will be added: approved KWPN stallions, stallions that participate in the stallion selection and horses that participated in the last observation training for the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses. All these horses may participate directly in the semi-final without pre-selection. The best three horses per age category will be ridden in the second final round and judged by a guest rider.

The semifinals will be held on Thursday 12 August. The Pavo Cup finals will take place on Sunday 15 August. The semi-finals and finals will be held at the National Equestrian Center.

Registration for the pre-selections is possible until Thursday 8 July via the agenda.
