FEI European Pony Championships - Dressage - Jumping - Eventing

The Pony Preliminary Test is usually used for warm-up competition.

The Pony Team Test is used as the first individual qualification for the Pony Individual test.

The Pony Individual Test is used for the second part of the competition. The Top 18 placegetters in the Individual Test progress to the Freestyle.

The FEI European Pony Championships began in 1978 and encompass all of the Olympic disciplines of dressage, showjumping and eventing with the dressage in particular dominated by Germany since 1982.

 

One team of three to four riders, aged between 12 and 16 is selected by each National Federation to represent their country on the Pony Dressage Team.  Selection trials and training camps are held throughout the year with spots in the team strongly contested, especially in the stronger nations of Germany and the Netherlands.  In more recent years pony teams from Great Britain, Belgium and Denmark have started to make their mark in the medals.

 

The top 3 scores are taken from each team to determine the placings in the Nations Cup.  National Federations that cannot field a team may send one or two individual riders.

 

As per FEI Dressage Rules, a Preliminary competition may be held to allow ponies and riders to familiarise themselves with the competition arena, which must be held outdoors.  All combinations compete in the Team test over the first two days with all combinations again eligible to compete in the Individual test on day 3 and 4.  Prior to 2012, only the Top 25 combinations moved forward to the Individual Test.  

 

On the 5th and last day of competition, the Top 18 placegetters (with a maximum of 3 riders from any one team) from the Individual test compete in the Freestyle.

FEI European Pony Championships - Dressage

No whips are allowed at FEI Pony Dressage level and all ponies compete in snaffle bits.  Ponies must be a minimum of 6 years of age.

 

Prior to the 2009 European Championships, results of the Freestyle were counted as the medal decider for the team competition.  In 2009, the Freestyle became a stand alone competition and a chance to ride for an Individual Medal. 

 

Outstanding individuals that have progressed successfully from Medal wins at the Bundeschampionate to the FEI Pony Europeans include :

 

  • Deinhard B - 7 Individual Gold (2004 5 yo Silver & 2006 6 yo Silver at the Bundeschampionate)

 

  • HB Golden Girl (x FS Don't Worry) - 3 Individual Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze (2005 3 yo Gold at the Bundeschampionate)

 

  • Dulcia (x Arts Dancer-Boy) - 3 Individual Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze (Gold in all age groups from 2000 to 2003 at the Bundeschampionate)

 

  • Dressman I (x Domingo) - 3 Individual Gold and 1 Bronze (Gold in all age groups from 1991 to 1994 at the Bundeschampionate)

 Deinhard B

Since the Freestyle became a stand alone competition in 2009, only two ponies have achieved a clean sweep of the 3 Individual Gold Medals; Deinhard B (x Dornik B) for Germany in 2014 and SL Lucci (x Lukas) for Great Britain in 2013.

 

One of the most outstanding performers in European Pony Championship history is Dornik B winning double individual Gold Medals in 2000, 2001 and 2004. This feat was topped by his son, Deinhard B who won double individual Gold in 2005, 2008 and triple Gold in 2014, still unbeatable at 15 years of age.
