Hölle and Exell join forces for the first time in the Lipica ‘Pairs in the Picture’ clinic

Three-times World Pair Champion Martin Hölle from Hungary and five-times World Four-in-Hand Champion Boyd Exell from Australia are joining forces for the Pairs in the Picture international Driving Clinic in Lipica, Slovenia, on 12th and 13th March. Never before, the two World Champions have worked together in public and Lipica is extremely proud to host this premiere!

Martin Hölle has great memories of Lipica where he won his first World title in 2017. Martin is very happy to attend this clinic and to play an important role as a horse pair driver. “I look very much forward to working with Boyd. I think it is very good to have this clinic and to focus on the new FEI dressage tests. The timing is excellent, just before the new season starts so we can put everything we learn in Lipica to practice immediately in the first competition. I am also looking forward to hearing Andrew Counsell’s opinion and his presentation on the changes in the FEI Driving Rules.”
