This year’s edition of Hannoverian Days organized by Kunowo Stud, located just outside Poznan in the western part of Poland, took place on July 11, 2020. Out of a dozen or so mares, three were awarded with the Hannoverian Praemie. The first of them, also announced as the best dressage mare, was four-year-old Dancing Queen (Diamond Hit - St.Pr.St. Fujairah SF x Florencio I), bred and owned by Agnieszka Gronowska and presented by Konrad Holodiuk.
The other state premium mare was a chestnut five-year-old jumper by Stolzenberg, out of Cayenne (Comte x Escudo I), bred by Sławomir Olesinski. The third was a four-year-old showjumper by Cornet Obolensky, out of St.Pr.St. Quinta (Quintender x Cento), bred and owned by Roman Roszkiewicz.
The best showjumping mare, scoring two nines in the free jumping, was beautiful and quite magnificent, by Diatendro, our of Centuria S (Chacco-Blue) bred by Johannes Sabel and Magdalena Jozwiak.
A dozen foals were also presented during the awarding of premiums, where the winning showjumping foal was a colt by Numero Uno out of dam St.Pr.St.Carmen (Cento x Calido), bred and owned by Marta Roszkiewicz-Heizer. A filly by Diamant de Semilly out of dam St.Pr.St.Quinta (Quintender x Cento), and a colt by Stakkato Gold out of dam St.Pr.St.Calua (Cornet Obolensky x Quintender), bred and owned by Roman Roszkiewicz, were also gold medal awarded.
The dressage foals winner was a colt by Finest out of dam Edi van Volker (Edward x Lauries Crusador xx), and a colt by Finest Edward out of dam Delicia (Dancier x Wolkenstein II). Both foals were bred and are owned by Joanna Siuda-Lewandowska and Mirosław Cichy.
The horses were scrutinised by a very experienced representation of Hannoverian Association judges, including Hans Henning von der Decken, chairman of the Verband, Stefan Blanken, the test rider, and Erdwing Holste. They were also happy to provide a commentary on the results.
Q In general how would you value the event and the presented horses?
