On the last weekend of May, the first of this year's sports events took place in the grounds of the National Stud - the May Prize of the Topoľčianky National Stud. More than 80 riding pairs came to test their strength in showjumping. Competitions were announced from the ZM level to S - 130 cm. The author of the courses was an experienced course designer from Czech Republic, Ján Kopiš. The panel of judges, which ensured the smooth running of all competitions, was commanded by Anka Virágová, the other members were Martina Kredatusová, Bibiana Zacharová and Patrik Mikulášik. A big thank you goes to the sponsors of the event, who donated interesting material and financial prizes to the winners and runners-up. They were the companies Happy Horse Service, Cavalor, Heineken, Prohorse, Gazoo, JK pri Národný žrebčín and Národný žrebčín Topoľčianky.

Zdenek Kuchár won without a mistake and with a big-time lead on his horse Quix "M" from JK Slávia Spišská Nová Ves. Katarína Sovová, riding Rouse from JŠ Kráľovce, took the second place with the second fastest time and no penalty points.
