Attention to lorry drivers arriving to the World Championships!

boekmann anglePlease follow the clearly marked, world championships directions from Szentes, from the first roundabout upon approaching the town. That’s how you can avoid getting in downtown full of small roundabouts and prevent any inconvenience arising from stuck lorries and trucks.

At the aforementioned roundabout upon approaching Szentes, please take the perimeter road towards Hodmezovasarhely. Once reaching a large TV tower, please turn left. At the next junction, take the right towards the direction of Kunszentmarton.

Then follow the road for a while till the next roundabout to Fabiansebestyen.

11826012_659454677523677_8263105597592210099_nFabiansebestyen has been participating in the horse driving sport for more than 40 years. At first not as an organiser but as a competitor: the predecessor of the organiser of the 16th World Pairs Driving Championship, the Kinizsi 2000 Agricultural Ltd. presented a carriage at the competition. Back then the carriages from Fabiansebestyen were used during school leaving ceremonies, festivals and village fetes. Moreover, the nonius bread was used for its famous horsepower for agricultural purposes. To present a carriage at a competition required financial means. That is why it was only after a while that the drivers of Fabiansebestyen managed to obtain a nicely decorated and ornamented carriage. The first plans to build a course accomodating horse driving were concieved much later. The experts of that time planned the rudimentary course on a sheet of paper. The old course of Fabiansebestyen has been developing every year ever since and forms a part of the current one. During the decades, the course, the Kinizsi Park, became a much liked international horse sport location and we are super proud to organise the 16th World Pairs Driving Championship here.
We hope you will also be impressed with our facilities!

park3Only 30 days to go before the 16th World Pairs Driving Championship starts in the Kinizsi Park in Fabiansebestyen. The championship is held between 9 and 13 September and hosts drivers from 19 nations. All major competitors from the pair driving world have already submitted their entry.
According to the regulations of the FEI, additional cultural programmes are also served as entertainment. As already traditional there will be a show with horses, as well as the “Ball” for people who are fond of horses and the “Street of Tastes”. The grandious opening ceremony is going to offer plenty of surprises and is promised to be a spectacle. We are convinced it will be a worthy opening for the 16th World Pairs Driving Championship. Don’t miss it!

Further 6 stands are built around the obstacles offering comfortable seating for an additional 1800 members of the audience even during the most spectacular phase of the competition.
