Minden also in the race for the 2017 World Pony Driving Championships!

After Hoefnet published this morning that Ászár/Kisbér in Hungary has put in a bid with the FEI to organise the 2017 FEI World Pony Driving Championships 2017, the organiser of Minden in Germany also announced that it has, pushed by a large number of drivers, also put in an application for these Championships!

The organisation in MInden is led by German pony pair driver Christof Weihe, who successfully introduced the first ever CAIO for ponies this year. Minden is very popular amongst the pony drivers and this promises a fair battle between the two OC's.
Hungary has never organised the FEI World Pony Driving Championships before, Germany hosted the 2009 World Championships in Greven-Bockholt.
