World Championship of Icelandic Horses 2011

Only a few months until the major sporting event of the year 2011 is getting started

Under the slogan "The magic gaits", the World Championships of Icelandic Horses 2011 from 1st to 7th of August 2011 in St. Radegund, Upper Austria, at the “Islandpferde Reithof Piber” will be staged. Top international riders from around the world are going to present their horses and their "magic gaits" in an impressive manner. Perfect conditions for the equestrian facilities are crucial to the horses and their riders to guarantee optimised training - and to ensure competitive conditions. On the 14 hectare large area the unimaginable amout of 92 000 cubic meters of material was moved and another 32,000 cubic meters had to be brought in. During the construction of the facilities the focus was pruely placed on a sustainable use of the venue. It is intended to provide a cross-training center in the future - as well as for guest coaches, trainer seminars on various riding styles and for all horse breeds. In addition the venue offers optimal training conditions: dressage areas (20x40m and 20x60m), an indoor riding school (20x40m), two oval tracks (250m) and two pace tracks and a lungeing ring (20m).
