As a contribution to the equestrian sports in the archipelago, this four-day event will feature dozens of equestrians who will compete in such an esteemed grand prix that includes the qualification classes in dressage and show jumping.
Pazia Indonesian Grand Prix 2011 presents Jürg Maurer (SUI) as the Show Jumping Course Designer. And judges in the event are N.Y. Ho from FEI International Jumping Judge and two from National Jumping Judge, Mia Arsyad and Mariana Theresia.
Pazia Indonesian Grand Prix 2011 is the second equestrian event organized by PT Pazia. Looking at the success of the last year’s event, Yuliasiane Sulistiyawati, the president director of PT Pazia, expresses her optimism that this year’s grand prix will record another great success.
“But more importantly, we are very much hoping that the event will become a means to inculcate in today’s generation about the importance of sports, particularly horse riding,” she says.
Yuliasiane also hopes that the increasing enthusiasm on equestrian sport in Indonesia will open more opportunity for many Indonesian equestrians to compete at the higher level, both nationally and internationally. “It’s time to show the world that our equestrians possess skills comparable to equestrians from advanced countries.”
Pazia Indonesian Grand Prix 2011 is preceded by “photo session and press conference” that takes place today, Sunday, May 29, 2011 at FX Mall, Jakarta. Opening convoy by Pazia and Equestrian Federation of Indonesia (EFI) marks the beginning of today’s event, followed by photo session and press conference.
Yuliasiane and Youth and Sports Affairs Minister Andi Mallarangeng are scheduled to deliver welcoming speech, followed by a presentation about equestrian sport development by Rafiq Radinal, chairman and owner of Arthayasa.
