Written by Laura Becker
Hornsmühlen Eventing has reached the international level: For the first time riders and visitors can expect a CIC*-competition – the Gutshof-Ei Cup 2016 on 5th June.
Course Designer Fried Schwien and chief organiser Axel Behmann have created a course through the scenic landscape, almost completely visible and including a water combination with a jump in straight into a lake, which is unique in Germany. They ran the course in part with the new Swedish MIM-Safety-System for a higher security standard. The program on 4th June covers two tests for young horses, including a qualification for the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf.
The organisers Axel Behmann and Gerd Hamann are looking forward to welcoming a huge number of participants particularly the German top athletes and olympic riders Peter Thomsen, Andreas Dibowski and Kai Rüder. Axel Behmann reports: „Our scheduling is in full swing. We are excited to have the opportunity to host such a great and challenging weekend.“ Hornsmühlen Eventing is sponsored by the company „Gutshof Ei“ and supported by the riding club Malente-Eutin and the equestrian association Schleswig-Holstein.
