International Dressage- and Jumpingfestival
Each year in August, the International Dressage and Show Jumping Festival opens its gates to welcome visitors and guests. The major hippological event in the Riders’ Town will be celebrated from August 3 – 7 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 Nuremberg Cup or 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 the International Dressage and Show Jumping Festival and experience the fascination of equitation, the unmatched Verden Flair and the Verden Country Days.

And the sense of well-being continued – because the 25-year-old Spanish rider and the Fassbinder-daughter out of a Romanov Blue Hors-dam won the WC-title with a final score of 9.18.

Spanish-Danish Co-Operation to win in the WC-Arena
This victory threw up a lot of talking points: Fiontini, a mare from the Danish warmblood breed, won the qualifying competition of the FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for five-year-old horses with a final score of 9.48. The Spanish Sebero Jesus Jurado Lopez rode the mare, and a full sister of Fiontini was also represented in the field of WC-competitors: Fiontina, presented by Andreas Helgstrand (Denmark).
