Verden International

Equestrian sport with atmosphere

Each year in August, the Verden International opens its gates to welcome visitors and guests from all over the world. The major hippological event in the Riders’ Town will be celebrated from August 1 – 5 this year, and during these five days, the two- and four-legged athletes will be again in the focus of attention.

The Festival is to be opened by the Herwart von der Decken-Show, a gathering of the best mares of the Hanoveraner breeding area. The diversity of the tournament is unique: The whole range of training levels covers all age-groups of dressage horses, from young horse development classes to the qualifier for the Federal Championships of five- and six-year-old horses and the Hanoverian Dressage Horse Championships, the qualifier for the Piaff Challenge Cup up to Grand Prix de Dressage and Grand Prix Special. And it will be similar for the show jumping course: International jumper classes at the CSI**-level, the Hanoverian Show Jumping Championships and the amateur tour Gaudemus Equis will delight horse enthusiasts from near and far.

Become part of Verden International and experience the fascination of equitation, the unmatched Verden ambience and the Verden Country Days.

Verden International reconciles a lot of different things: international sport in two disciplines – show jumping and dressage – national sport for four- and two-legged athletes, an internationally very popular and renowned auction for broodmares and foals, the legendary Herwart von der Decken-Show and the Verden Country Days with new attractions. To summarize it – a festival for the whole family. » Read more
