It Is A Novelty: Three CVIs On One Weekend

The calendar with CVIs is very saturaded this year. It is an amazing thing that the sport went from 9 international competitions in 1999 to 20 in the current season. They take place in 17 different countries. – That are great numbers, don’t you think?

There are Concours de Voltige International in Europe, North America, Australia & Africa that include countries like Czech Republic, South Africa, Qatar & Canada.

I am getting so excided when I take a look at the calendar of May:

  • Hollister (USA) & Morsele (BEL) will break the first ground April 30. Vygo will present a complete livestream of the latter.
  • The week after we will eye the CVI in Budapest, the capital of Hungary.
  • May 14: After ten years there is a CVI in Switzerland again. The organizers still look for volunteers.
  • The Witsun weekend will bring us again great sport: the invitation only CVI-Masterclass Wiesbaden (Livestream by ClipMyHorse) & the CVI Austria which moved from Stadl Paura to the very nice Ebreichsdorf. Nicole Obermayr offers a place on her horse for Austria via Vaulting News Horse Sharing.

  • And now the scoop. The last days of May the FEI presents THREE competitions on ONE weekend. That’s a novelty. They always try to avoid collisions but this time there was no other free date. On the other hand: Denmark, Russia & Canada are so far apart from each other that all CVIs will be filled with lots of vaulters. And when the CVI is in their home region travelling & earning scores for the championship qualification is getting much cheaper.

Personally I am really looking forward to the new freestyles of Neuss & Wildegg which they are going to present in May.  Also, most of the qualifications will be done after that enormous month.
