International German Show Jumping Championships at Riesenbeck International

“In the coming week we will host the German Youth Championships for the second time, last year we hosted the amateurs at their German Championships. Now we're really looking forward to another highlight, the German Senior Championships, ”says Ludger Beerbaum. “At the same time, with our first organization of a CSI ***, we are taking the next step on an international level.” So much can already be revealed: The concept and the evaluation are new and compact. This has become necessary to allow the national championship to take place at all, despite all the difficulties of the corona pandemic.


At the show, which will take place in the large event arena, international riders will be competing - as is usual in Riesenbeck. There will be joint classes, but in the end there will be German Champions (in the open classification and in the women’s classification), who had to compete with international top athletes on the way there. After coordination with national coach Otto Becker and the jumping committee, a new mode was agreed on for this show, which can also be easily followed in the media. Under the applicable Corona rules, viewers will not be able to follow the title fights on site as usual, but can watch the broadcast live on various channels.


Show director Karten Lütteken explains the date of the show: "The weekend has become free in the calendar because the World Cup show in Stuttgart has been canceled."
