The 2023 show season is already off to a great start at Riesenbeck International. As the first late-entry tournament coincided with the 60th birthday of the co-founder of the equestrian facility, Philipp Freiherr Heereman von Zuydtwyck, he donated a coveted honorary prize for the winner of the advanced (S) level show jumping competition: a VIP ticket for two to a home match of German soccer champions FC Bayern Munich. Winner Felix Hassmann thanked very cordially for it and called immediately again the next tournament attendance with its horses for the coming weekend.
On the two weekends (February 2 to 4 and 9 to 11) the first international two-star tournaments will take place at Riesenbeck International. This is the start of a spectacular show year that will culminate in the first leg of the Global Champions Tour in July and two European Championships (dressage and para-dressage) in September.
From Thursday to Saturday, riders from ten nations and their horses will move into the boxes at the Surenburg. There will be 15 competitions at one- and two-star level. The Grand Prix will take place on Saturday at 5 pm. Along with the Hassmann brothers Felix and Toni, the former Beerbaum employee Marko Kutscher, the rising star in the jumping saddle Sophie Hinners - just returned from a short trip from the USA -, the internationally successful Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann, the Olympic rider from Japan Eiken Sato, to name but a few.
For those who want to enjoy an "après ski" experience on site, the organizer invites you to a happy hour on Friday, February 3 from 7 to 8 pm. Then, with the purchase of two drinks, there will be a third free of charge.
Clipmyhorse.tv will broadcast live. The entrance is free.
