2022 Haflinger Sports Days in Merano/Meran

Practical work for beginners and experts alike

Haflinger-Sporttage 2022
The 2022 edition of the Haflinger Sports Days will focus on practical aspects – not as a tournament, however, but instead by means of hands-on work both with and on the horse to ensure that all parties benefit. 
Establishing an event like the Haflinger Sports Days naturally takes time – and both in terms of competitions or tournaments and from a purely organisational perspective, the last two years have been anything but easy for equestrian sports. Especially in South Tyrol, where anything outside of gallop and trot racing is considered a “fringe sport” in the Haflinger community. That is why the Haflinger Sports Days were launched a few years ago: in a bid to offer a stage for all other equestrian sports disciplines in parallel with the traditional gallop races.

Preliminary schedule

Workshops on Saturday 8 October:
  • Different bits and their effects (Ivan Vieider)
  • Trailer-training: tips and tricks (Francesco Rizzello)
  • Correct seating and posture (Christine Kofler)
  • Fault-free trail course riding (Priska Kelderer)
