FEI World Driving Championships for Pairs





Dear friends of carriage driving!

Lipica Stud Farm is a cradle of Lipizzaner horses with a tradition from 1580. Its green estate is a home to over 300 Lipizzaner horses, as well as a venue for international driving competitions for several years.

With its infrastructure, experience in the field of organisation of international competitions, and hospitable reception, it is highly ranked among organisers of the most prominent and most important equestrian competitions. After the World Driving Championship with pony-drawn carriages in 2011, Lipica Stud Farm will proudly organise the World Driving Championship for Pairs from 20 to 24 September 2017.

More than 65 top drivers from more than 20 world countries will fight for the title of world champion. A competition of this size can, of course, be carried out only by a well-coordinated team with the support of many volunteers, sponsors, and donors.

The World Driving Championship for Pairs will be the largest and the most important equestrian event in the history of Slovenia. It will present a great opportunity for promotion of Lipica and the Lipizzaner horse, as well as the Kras region and Slovenia. For a week, it will bring together friends of carriage driving sport from all over the world and put Lipica Stud Farm – the original stud farm of the Lipizzaner horse – in the spotlight of the international equestrian public.
