Having previously cancelled the race due to the pandemic, the San Genesio/Jenesien Haflinger Breeders’ Association recently decided to go ahead with the event at the urging of its members. Which is why the tournament was held on 30 January 2022 – with a number of conditions and restrictions in place and, so to speak, as a preparation for the County Championships on 13 February in the Sarentino/Sarntal valley.
Despite a recent spell of warm weather, luckily there was plenty of snow left on the Salto/Salten mountain ridge. And with the tracks groomed to perfection, the contestants had to compete over two rounds of sleigh racing followed by one round of the ever-spectacular skijoring.

Living up to her role as the sleigh race’s favourite, Roland Pechlaner’s O-HARA successfully defended her title with Patrick Straudi in the driver’s seat. Robert Plattner’s UMANA, too, won the Older Mares’ skijoring race for the third time in a row. And in spite of their relative inexperience, the Three-Year Old Mares mastered their first competitive performance on snow with great courage and grace – with Heinrich Zöggeler’s CHIARA winning the sleigh race and Kathrin Erschbamer’s CAYA D’OR prevailing in the skijoring race.

Results: sleigh races and skijoring
