The WWR CUP 2005

Fifty horse and rider combinations from 5 European countries will be competing in the WWR CUP 2005 – International Western Riding Show in Poland, which will take place at Iwno Horse Stud (200 km from German border) on the 11th-12th of June, 2005.

The WWR Show is one of the largest events on Polish soil. After it’s success last year, when the show attracted a lot of interest from visitors, media and top Polish riders, the organizers have expanded the competitive ranks.

This year the competition is connected with a mini fair featuring the latest equine trends, breeding horses, equipment and other related topics. Polish and foreign exhibitors will visit the fair, and there will be the possibility to expand trade contacts and make new ones.

There is some modification to the show schedule - The WWR CUP 2005 will consist of the following events and classes: Reining Open, Reining Youth, Jackpot Reining Junior, Western Pleasure Open, Western Pleasure Youth, Trail Open, Trail Youth. The newest show class will be Jackpot Working Cow Horse.

The show starts on June 11 with the Go Round of the Trail Youth and Open, Western Pleasure Youth and Open, Reining Youth and Open. This day riders will be compete in Jackpot Reining Junior also. The day before (June 10) the show management offers warm up opportunities. On Sunday the 12th the finals of all classes will be held as well as a Cutting demonstration.

The WWR CUP 2005 will be judged by Dr. Hilde Jarc (Austria), who is a NRHA International and FEI judge. She has owned and ridden horses since becoming financially able at the age of 22 although she had dreamed of it since childhood and while studying chemistry. With her Arabian she has done everything from dressage and jumping to eventing and endurance (they were FEI Vice European Champions and European Champions in 1984 and 1985). Since the early eighties she has also been involved in Western Riding. When Western Riding started in Austria they attended the first clinics (with Jean Claude Dysli) and promoted the sport. She succeeded in making Western Riding part of the Austrian National Federation at this time and she is responsible for Western Riding in our FENA. At the first European Championship in Aachen in 1982 she started for the Austrian team and attended her first judging clinic and she has been judging ever since. She also works in a leading position for the Ministry of Health and Women.
