The Trials had previously been held together with the FEI World Cup Eventing Series, but after a format change in 2012 the FEI Nations Cup Eventing Series was launched.
Strzegom, Poland, has been a part of the Nations Cup since its inception, with the exception of 2013 due to bad weather. This year the event will be held more than 5 weeks earlier than normal at the 14 Pułk Ułanów Jazłowieckich Hippodrome in Morawa.
Horses have long been a major part of Strzegom’s history. The Strzegom Horse Stud was founded in the 1950s to specialise in breeding Thoroughbreds and the Silesian horse. The town itself is located in southwest Poland in a region known as Lower Silesia and has been settled since at least the 10th century.
It is rich in historical and cultural tourist attractions and has spectacular views of old mountains and amazing architecture. Spectators will be able to visit nearby tourist attractions such as Ksaiz Castle, the Minor Basilica, and the Church of Peace in Swidnica.
The Strzegom Horse Trials will also offer loads of attractions for families, including pony rides, carriage rides, a pony show, and a mini kindergarten.
