The Largest Field in the History of the Budapest CSIOs at 1.40m

The total prize money of the CSIO3* 1.40m Medium Tour presented by the Ministry of Defence was originally €2,000, but due to the huge number of entries, it has been doubled.

The event attracted 103 horse and rider pairs never seen in the history of Budapest CSIOs. According to the international jumping competition rules, if more than 100 starters are declared, the competition must be split into two groups and additional prize money should be provided for the additional competition. It also means that both fields award separate winners and podium finishers as it happened in the National Riding Hall this time.

The two victorious riders were Slovenian Urh Bauman on Butterfly Effect and Henri Kovács on Tambourino representing Finland.
