Venue

The Equestrian Academy of the Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences is located near the city of Kaposvár, but still close to nature. The venue has a history dating back to more than 50 years, and its excellent facilities make it suitable for organizing huge international competitions. It has already hosted dressage, pony and vaulting championships multiple times and vaulters already come home here after the World Championships of 1996 and the Europeans of 2007, 2014 and 2018.

The main building of the venue is the 30x70m main arena hosting as much as 800 spectators at a time.

The indoor warm up arena of 20x60m, located right next to the main arena provides easy and quick access to the competition hall.

The area is complete with world-class outdoor arenas, the larger of which (60x70m) hosts dressage and show jumping competitions regularly, and is available for riding throughout the event, while the smaller one (50x60m) is going to be open for lunging as well. All the grounds are covered with modern geotextile and sand.

Competitors are served by 93 3,5x3m built boxes, to which mobile boxes maybe added under a fix roof to be able to serve larger competitions and extend boxes, if necessary for bigger horses. 

Trucks may be parked near the stables, where we provide electricity as well.
