Turnier 2009 - Competition of the Winners

Report by Kelly Bauer.

Competition of the Winners, 2009...

The competition of the winners is an important show, hosting The Rider Tour for the show jumpers. The Grand Final of the Medien Cup for the dressage competitors and several young horse classes which are utilized as a last dress rehearsal before the Bundeschampionate in September.

A little like Wiesbaden, this show arena also boasts a castle as its backdrop. The 90m x 60m dual purpose arena lies in front of the Prince Bishop's Castle in the Westphalian town of Münster. The castle was built in 1767 for the Prince-Bishop of Münster. Since 1954 it has been the home of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität. On show days it provides a spectacular location for what is a very important event on the competition calendar. The arena changes from the 20x60 dressage arena into a grand prix jumping circuit and as daylight fades, the lights are turned on for the spectacular action packed nights, filled with top quality horse sports.

With summer weather forecasted for the duration of the show, the show organisers are expecting a crowd of around 25,000 visitors over the four days.

Australia has one representative in the CSI4* show jumping, James Paterson-Robinson. He is listed to ride Lanosso, Chester Cable, Niack de L’Abbaye and Chet-Bull Z. I will keep you posted…

Grand Final of the Medien Cup

The Medien Cup is a German National (FN) Grand Prix Series for up and coming 8- 10 year old Grand Prix horses. The FN developed a new dressage test especially for this series. This special S3* test includes all the exercises of an official Grand Prix-test, but with a different sequence, reduced number of exercises and a reduced number of steps in piaffe.

From the four qualifying competitions held previously this year in Hagen, Wiesbaden, Mönchengladbach and Heroldsberg, 12 pair’s earnt their spot in the Grand Prix showdown in Münster. The only changes to the line up are Isabell Werth & Patrik Kittel will not be riding, allowing Hubertus Schmidt and Katrin Betternworth to be part of the Grand final.

The first chance the Medien cup finalists will have to strut their stuff on the arena in Münster will be Friday morning 8am German time. This is when the first test will take place before the Grand Final on Saturday at 9:30am. You will be able to catch live performances on www.cpm24.tv.
