Horse competition at Floresti between 1.06-3.06

The second edition of Karpatia Pony Show is back! Just in time for International Children’s Day, in a new extended format for three days. During 1st – 3rd of June, on the Cantacuzino Domain in Floresti, Prahova county, the event will take place for all nature and beauty lovers, as well as horse fans and families with children who will have the opportunity to attend competitions, games and presentations with ponies and horses or will enjoy the many outdoor activities. Each year I try not to miss it as such horse events aren’t very often and it is very well organized. Not to say that Cantacuzino Domain holds centuries of history and stories. The sports program will include three equestrian competitions:

  • The absolute novelty of this year’s edition is the “Nations Cup” International Horse Competition. Traditionally organized at Cross Country Farm, near Sighisoara, the Romanian competition received for the last 7 editions the “Competition of the Year” prize, awarded by the AIEC International Forum (Association of Etudiants Cavaliers). Teams from 12 countries will compete on Romanian horses and each horseman will have five minutes before each test to accommodate with the horse. The contest is part of a circuit that starts in Spain and continues in Sweden, Great Britain and Germany.
  • The Pony Competition where horsemen will participate with ponies of different sizes, races and ages in 3 different competitions: dressage, obstacles, harness with ponies.
  • Full National Competition (CCN) for one star horsemen, novices and pre-novices, with a spectacular cross-country endurance trail which will serve as a training stage for Karpatia Horse Show.

A less known discipline – Working Equitation will include skill demonstrations, games, pony harness and a spectacular show of acrobatics on horseback, supported by Cross-Country sportsmen. The Cantacuzino Domain will have a wide range of outdoor recreation activities. An area with recreational spaces will be arranged, with pony and horses, carriages, multiple creative and educational workshops for children and young people, adventure park with mountain biking, zip line, archery, airsoft rifle shooting, bungee, field volley-ball.
