Horse riding movement in Olsztyn voivodeship was initiated by soldiers of Border Protection Troops. Further development took already place in undertaking breeding bussines pedigree breeding centers. Workplace sections were initiated there which with the support of the heads of studs and stallion stations obtained cooperation at the level of sports. However, the official pioneering equestrian competitions were held only in 1951 in Braniewo. The first contest was demonstration of dressage. This competition is widely regarded as the most important in horsemanship, while jumping over obstacles enjoys much greater popularity. Dressage in Warmia and Masuria, due to the lack of tradition and training staff, was practiced by few riders. That is why successes in the national arena appeared only in 1964. Originating from LZS Liski, brothers Antoni, Tomasz and Piotr Pacyńscy and Olympian, Stefan Grodzicki were dominating in the following years.
