Horse Day is a cyclic event for equitation enthusiasts. It has been organised since 2002 at Mierzęcin Palace and it constantly enjoys a large level of interest and draws guests from every part of Poland. The gathered spectators can follow riders competing in show jumping and dressage as well as to discover many other equestrian disciplines. Dynamic combined driving, spectacular gymnastics during equestrian vaulting shows and astonishing stuntman shows make an impression even on people who are not interested in horse riding. Every year Horse Day is honoured by world-renowned equestrian experts and showmen. We have hosted shows by Karolina Wajda as well as by a French group Horseman Team. Members of this group jump over obstacles not worse than the horses themselves. A great deal of excitement has been aroused in recent years by a race between a horse-drawn carriage and a car. Side by side with equestrian attractions are games and contests for the youngest children as well as culinary shows by the Head Chef of Mierzęcin Palace.
To meet the requirements of the youngest students of horse riding, who have only recently started their adventure in the world of equestrian sports, Mierzęcin Palace organizes “Practice Parkours”. These are events in show jumping. Their level and atmosphere are adjusted to the young riders as well as to the inexperienced horses. Each ride is treated as practice.
Modern, equestrian infrastructure and perfect conditions for accommodating Guests make Mierzęcin Palace into an excellent place for organising riding competitions. Prestigious International Dressage Competitions CDI*** were held here. The level of the competition was raised in 2008 by the World Cup CDI-W classification. Every time the competitions have drawn the best riders from Poland and from the whole world. Thanks to them they presented a high level and repeatedly were an additional attraction to the Horse Day organised by Mierzęcin Palace.
The surroundings of Mierzęcin Palace, with its picturesque paths in the Drawska Primeval Forest, are a perfect spot to organise St. Hubert’s chase. In September 2006 Riding and Hunt Sports Club from Copenhagen, which organises chases in a different place in Europe every year, paid us a visit. Hubertus organised at Mierzęcin received very high marks. For 7 days a group of 50 riders competed on difficult and diverse tracks with terrain obstacles specially built by the organisers for the event.
