The Final of the Pavo Cup unfortunately could not take place last year due to Covid-19. This year, this popular young horse dressage competition is back on the equestrian agenda again. The four-, five- and six-year-old dressage horses will compete for the title of Pavo Cup Champion on Sunday, August 15th. Today you can watch the first selection via our livestream. 

Five selection competitions are organized: four in The Netherlands (July 21, 23, 27 and 30) and one in Belgium (July 31). 

Previously, the combinations that had obtained 80 points or more, were automatically placed for the semi- final. This year, a different method will be used: after each selection competition there will be an adjusted intermediate ranking. After the fifth - and last - selection competition, a determined number of combinations will be placed, based on the scores achieved (from highest to lowest) for the semi-final which will take place in Ermelo on Thursday, August 12th. The Pavo Cup final will be ridden on Sunday the 15th of August.

Live stream
We find it extremely important to offer our breeders and their young dressage horses an (international) stage. Over the past year, our events have achieved a huge reach via livestream, and we have received a lot of positive feedback from all over the world. Because of that we will broadcast all the selection competitions of the Pavo Cup via and ClipMyHorse. During the pre-selections, explanations are provided in both Dutch and English. Of course, the semi-final (Thursday August 12th) and final (Sunday August 15th) can also be followed via the livestream.

You can watch our livestream (with English comments)!
