This year the Pavo Cup selection will take place according to a new selection formula. There will be five selection competitions organized, four of which will be in the Netherlands and one in Belgium. On July 21st the first competition will be held in Tolbert, followed by July 23th in Ermelo, July 27th in Houten, July 30th in Riel and July 31st in Oud Turnhout.
In order to maximize uniformity in the assessment, one jury team of three judges for the four-year-old dressage horses and one jury team of three judges for the five- and six-year-old dressage horses will be formed. Two jury members from the permanent team are drawn up for each selection competition.
After each selection day there will be an adjusted intermediate classification. After the fifth – and thus last – selection match, based on the scores achieved (from high to low), the predetermined number of combinations (50 four-year-olds, 35 five-year-olds and 20 six-year-olds) will be placed for the semi-final that will take place on Thursday, August 12th in Ermelo.
All Pavo Cup pre-selections are broadcasted live via KWPN.tv and ClipMyHorse. The pre-selections afwil be commentated in both Dutch and English. The semi-final (on Thursday 12th of August) and the final (on Sunday 15th of August) can also be followed via livestream.
