One of the highlights of the KWPN Championships is the battle of the young dressage talents for the Pavo Cup. Normally, the talents selected at the Central Inspections compete for a place in the final during the KWPN Championships in the semi-finals. The best 20 horses of the four and five year olds are selected for this. The six-year-olds final is open to the 12 highest placed horses in the semi-finals. The best three horses per age category will be ridden in the second round of the final and judged by a guest rider.
Due to the corona virus, KWPN Championships will expire in 2020. The intention is to have the Pavo Cup preselections in the region in October / November with the final in Ermelo.
The evaluation of the natural qualities of a horse runs through these selections as a continuous thread. To obtain a start ticket for the semi-finals of the Pavo Cup, which takes place each year (exept 2020) during the KWPN Championships in Ermelo, a horse must have some extra features. His natural movement mechanism; walk, trot, canter, harmony and total impression as a dressage horse in that are evaluated critically.
The Pavo Cup is a unique opportunity to enjoy the young dresssage talents and is therefore definitely worth your visit!More information (Dutch site)
