Eagerly awaiting the 15. Tallinn International Horse Show
14. Tallinn Horse Show goes into history with the fact that Saturday's tickets were sold out in advance. It was a real challenge for the organisers to make room for all who wished to attend. We couldn't help noticing that Saku Suurhall was almost too small for our event this time. Lack of sufficient seating was also a problem on Sunday when the main event, show jumping World Cup qualifier took place. Our highest ranking competitor in this class was once again Kerttu Klettenberg, this time on Toscana. There was a collective deep sigh from Saku Suurhall when the last pole came down in the main round. In the end they were placed 8th against heavy competition.
Our other athletes were successful as well. Rein Pill's and Alfons Ra's excellent performance in the six bar competition is worth mentioning, as well as winning Friday's main class on A Brok. Gunnar Klettenberg and Fisina G's won the young horses' class and Kullo Kender on Astrid L won the 130 cm course. It was fantastic to see such a large number of our local riders eagerly taking the opportunity to compete in the unique atmosphere of Saku Suurhall in front of a very large audience.
The entertainment program was also thrilling. Ukrainian cossacks earned a standing ovation from the audience with their sensational performance. „Cute-O-Meter“ or quadrille of small ponies was really fun and well ridden. The grand show dedicated to the 160th anniversary of Tori Horse Stud brought 50 beautiful horses to the arena. We took home great memories from this October weekend!
However, the organisers have no time to rest on laurels because the 15. Tallinn International Horse Show is waiting its turn! Not many sports events have delighted the audience for that long. A special number requires special preparation and so all our team is already thinking of next autumn.
We expect you all back to the Suurhall on October 6.-8. 2017!
PS! We definitely recommend to purchase the tickets in advance!
