Surprising change in location of Balkan dressage Championship from Thessaloniki to Athens?

It would be a big surprise to meet sustainable decisions among Balkan National Federations in equestrian sport. We can always count on their daily changes, but they don’t take them to improvement of equestrian sport, but so far just stagnation. Maybe some sustainable strategy (that means long term one) could move things forward with mutual agenda to bring up not only dressage sport. .Indoor Markopoulo

So, by latest information, Balkan Dressage Championship will take place once more at Markopoulo Olympic Equestrian Center from July 1st – 3rd. Hope that will be final date since we could say this is the only place around to meet highest organizational quality.

As Olympic center it gives best conditions to meet Championship standards not only for Balkan’s Championships, but even furthermore. Unfortunately, there won’t be more to come in dressage in region lately, except Balkan Championships.

Five judges have been elected to judge Senior (Small tour level), Young Riders, Juniors and Children categories:

Anne Prain (FRA), President of the Ground Jury, and members – Natalia Rubashko (BLR), Fouad Hamoud (ALG), Anne PrainStables Markopoulo (FRA), Orsolya Hillier (HUN), Chang-Kyoo Yang (KOR).

Foreign TD will be Mariano Santos Redondo (ESP), and again in Markopoulo will come Mariette Withages (BEL) as president of Appeal Committee.
