The Slovak Championship in Dressage 2019 took place at the National Stud Farm Topoľčianky on 5th-7th July. About 60 horses had come to fight for the best results. During the three day event, the spectators could see almost 300 starts on different levels, from A to S, including the tests for young horses.
Excellent technical conditions, quiet atmosphere and a good organization were the reasons to come for all the dressage riders in Slovakia. The National Stud Farm Topoľčianky had prepared new stabling for the horses and new comfortable tribunes with seats and sunshades around the dressage arena, so the spectators and other members of the teams could comfortably watch competing horses.
The Ground Jury consisted of very experienced judges. The Ground Jury President was Slovak international judge Doc. RNDr. Ilja Vietor, PhD. The other Ground Jury Members were Peter Juhász from Slovakia, Iva Schutzová and Dana Kuřítková from Czech Republic and from Hungary the invitation accepted Barbara Franyo.
