Just one month to go and then the Central Inspection is on the agenda. The preliminary programme for this 4-day Friesian horse event at Riding School Gaasterland in Harich from the 14th through to the 17th of September is under construction.
Pavo Fryso Cup (semi) finals
The semi finals for the Pavo Fryso Cup are scheduled for Wednesday the 14th and Thursday the 15th. Wednesday is the day for the mares, the stallions come into action on Thursday.
A day later the finals will be ridden on the Friday afternoon during the sport matinee. That’s when guest riders Bart Bax and Chris Epskamp are going to take to the saddle.
New: Progeny Test and workshops
This year too some new elements have been added to the programme. On the Friday afternoon/evening there will be a show with offspring from stallions that are in the process of completing their Progeny Test this year. It’s certain that Elias 494, Ulbrân 502 and Rommert 498 are going to present some of their offspring.
Also new are the workshops that YoungKFPS and the KFPS have organised together. On Friday and Saturday various people will convene in the tent next to the inspection ring to share their knowledge and to exchange thoughts about the Friesian horse. New members are welcome, YoungKFPS members…but in actual fact, everybody is invited to join. The line-up of speakers and times will be announced later.
Inspection starts on Friday
The inspection kicks off on Friday with the filly foals and colt foals, the inspection of yearlings, 2-year-olds and the inspection of the 4-6-year-old Star mares and the 7 years and older Star mares. Everything continues on Saturday with all the other horses and inspections taking place in three rings. In the afternoon the arena is the scene of the Champion inspection, alternately livened up by for example showdriving, the presentation of the Xerxina Trophy and the announcement of the YoungKFPS breeder of the year.
Two days of livestream
During four full days Harich is the place to be to admire many fine Friesian horses. Everyone is welcome, entry and parking too are free. For those who prefer to follow everything from a distance: on Friday and Saturday there will be livestream.
