Countdown to the event


Slovakia and Poland to share the podium of CSIO4*

16 September 2023

The representative of Slovakia Bronislav Chudyba took another victory, this time at the CSIO4* competition for the prize of Enea, under the patronage of Polskie Radio Trójka. The rider, who has this way secured two golds so far throughout the Warsaw Jumping, seized the latter on the 11-year-old mare Herriet T.

Victory always tastes right. My mare has been incredible over the last three days. She partnered me in two victories and one second spot. She is just an amazing horse.. – he commented.

I was hoping for the tings to go well, as Herriet always gives out her best. The success was just a matter of my right focus on the course, she was just flawless. – emphasised Bronislav Chudyba

Second up the ranks was Poland’s Dawid Skiba on the 11-year-old La Vulkano L.

He did some great jumps today. Like a warrior, and that is his version I like the most. The parkour was well-designed, right for the speed competition, as it inspired fluent forward ride. The combination of two stationatas was definitely hard, as if provoking aggressive approach and that was the spot of many errors. – said the Polish representative.

The competition was held under the patronage of Polskie Radio Trójka. The Greater-Poland rider was kind enough to hint at his own radio broadcast upbringing based on the cult Minimax by Piotr Kaczkowski.

I was an avid listener back in time and that is where my music inspirations originated. I am for sure a big fan of Piotr Kaczkowski. – he confessed.

The podium was also filled by another Pole – Michał Kaźmierczak with his gelding Whoopy Boy. The two completed the course in a truly impressive timing. The second place was unfortunately denied by a single, tiny knockdown.

There comes a slight aftertaste of insufficiency. Being one of the top three, however, is something that one always cherishes. The parkour required loads of concentration – from its very start till the very last obstacle – as the turns were pretty tight. You had to ride forward and clear. Whoopy Boy loves speed contests. I am satisfied with his performance today. – concluded Kaźmierczak right off the arena.
