The last big tournament on the tracks of the WM2013
From Friday to Sunday more than 200 pairs of equestrian horses competed for ribbons, medals and national championship titles organized by the Berliner Islandpferde Freunde (BIF) e.V. on the tracks of the World Championships 2013. This time also with all pass competitions, including the 150m and 250m pass race, started from the brand-new starting box of the BIF e.V. with incredibly good times. The horses and riders liked the well-prepared oval and pass tracks. Under the proven leadership of Sonja Stenzel and Stefan Laube we experienced an exciting, top-class and versatile tournament.
The WM2019 was of course always a topic and many questions provided material for discussions, e.g. "Can you still improve the tracks? How does the new training track fit into the terrain and will it be as good as the old competition track? Will the organisers be able to keep their promises? Will the inclusive therapy and riding center be completed on time to house all competition horses in 2019? Should you buy tickets now and is the group discount worth it?...........?” and much more. Ulla Gomis-Fliß and Bernhard Fliß from the board of the Islandpferde Sportverein Berlin (ISB) e.V. were available for two days to answer questions.
Of course the ISB e.V. supported the tournament with prizes and free tickets for the big World Championship horse show "More Horsepower" on 10.08.2019. The tickets were won in a draw at the riding party on Saturday.
