Driving Horse Auction at World Singles Championships
2 September 2006

The Equestrian Service S.r.l., in partnership with FISE, is going to set up and organize the first edition of an important initiative which aims at making the horse more popular, especially horses used in Driving Horse Competitions.

This is going to be the 1st Driving Horses Auction, which, if successful, will be organized every year and will become a regular appointment. This event is being promoted both to enhance the value of the driving horses and to encourage meeting between sellers and buyers, demand and offer.

The event comprises two sessions: the first one dedicated to driving horses of every breed born no later than 2002 and the second one reserved to Haflinger horses and other Italian breeds, recognized by AIA (Italian Breeders Association) and qualified as pony born no later than 2003.

The sessions will be held one after the other on Sunday 24 September 2006, from 5,30 p.m. onwards at the Equestrian Federation Centre (C.E.F.) of the Italian Equestrian Sports Federation (F.I.S.E.), in Rocca di Papa (Rome), on the occasion of the ?World Singles Driving Championships?.

The event is being promoted in Italy through its website and communications sent to the interested parties in order to create a unique market opportunity. We are working to the following deadlines:

Registration Closing Date: 14 September 2006
Confirmation to the interested parties: 16 September 2006

Printing and distribution of catalogue on the net and on paper during the ?World Singles Driving Championships? 21-24 September 2006.

The entry to the sale is free for an unlimited number of horses, both for the drivers registered in World Championships, and for all the owners whose horses may be considered of competitive interest by the Organizing Committee.
