First German Championship for U25 show jumpers

March 29. 2023

Lütteken: Joint appearance with international stars



There is show jumping festival from July 20 to 23 in the equestrian center Riesenbeck International! Not only the world's best show jumpers will meet on the four show days for the only German leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour and the Team Series Global Champions League. For the first time in history, the best national U25 show jumpers will also compete for medals at German Championships!


"It is a great concern for us that we can offer the German young riders the opportunity to measure themselves against each other in our sand stadium - and at the same time to be able to perform together with the international stars at an event," says Show Director and Riesenbeck International Managing Director Karsten Lütteken about this championship, which will take place in a more than dignified setting.

Lütteken emphasizes the philosophy of the equestrian center since the very beginning to provide not only the established professionals but also the up-and-coming riders with the best conditions to compete in their sport. "We've actually been doing that since the very beginning with the hosting of German Youth Championships, or even last weekend at the Federal Young Riders Championships for pony riders."

Host Ludger Beerbaum is sure that the young German riders can take away a lot for their further sporting life at such a highlight. "When, as a young person with sporting ambitions, you suddenly get to experience first-hand how your colleagues of the same age are already performing at international level, then that is something very special," he recalls of the early days of his incomparable career. "Especially the chance to participate in a world-class team, which the U25 riders get in the two worldwide series Longines Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League, is formative for a further career." 

The target group for the U25 Championships are young talents between the ages of 22 and 25 who have already placed nationally at S-3 star level or internationally in jumping competitions over 1.50 meters.

Three competitions, each with obstacle heights around 1.50 meters, have to be mastered for the German Championship. The first competition on Thursday will be a time jumping competition, followed the next day by a jumping competition according to faults and time. The final competition will be held with two rounds late on Saturday afternoon.
