Those were the European championships in logging 2022

Thank You!

We would like to thank the participants, some of whom made a long journey.
For their fair treatment of the horses and for the performances they showed us.

We would also like to thank the visitors for their interest and for coming in large numbers.

Besonders möchten wir uns auch bei den vielen Helfern bedanken, die uns im Vorfeld, im Zuge der Vorbereitung und auch während der Veranstaltung tatkräftig unterstützt haben. Unser Motto war von Anfang an “ Sei ein Teil der Veranstaltung :)“.

We also greatly appreciate the support of the many associations.

We hope you enjoyed it and that many of you are even more motivated by horse work and that we inspired each other.

The event team of the 2022 European Logging Championship in Austria



The association of the Austrian . with horses and friends of the working horse organizes the
European Championships 2022 in logging with horses in Liebenfels/Carinthia from 26 to 28 August 2022.
The competitions are organized for single and double carriages.

The event's aim

  • The event is designed to give a stage to professional loggers.
  • Lobbying for the work with drafthorses.
  • To revitalize the workhorse scene.
  • A feast for the lovers of drafthorses.

In addition to the actual competitions, there will be a great panel discussion with recognized forestry experts.

Since the work with drafthorses adds a great value especially in the forestry sector, we want to present the positive aspects to a broad public in the context of an open discussion.


The cultural aspect must also not be missing, because horse work represents a particularly sustainable and valuable cultural asset.

In addition, we are pleased to welcome the local brass music band, a Carinthian men's choir and also the rural youth with their dance group.

Within the framework of the European Logging Championships we want to fulfill the criteria of a "Green Event".

Help us with waste prevention and waste separation.
Without the idea of sustainability and environmental protection, forest work with horses will have no future.
