PM 4-2018 Equestrian Sport for all Age-Groups
„Verden International“ is a particularly interesting tournament because it features the whole range of sport and breeding, from futurity prospects to Grand Prix-horses,” explains Dr. Werner Schade, CEO of pVerd-event GmbH. Hanoverian breeders are looking forward to the first day of the event with anticipation when the best three-year-old Hanoverian mares will be presented at the Herwart von der Decken-Show on July 31, 2018. The free jumping of show jumping mares under the open sky is a special highlight.
The horses that are already one step ahead are competing on the following days in the qualifying competitions for the Hanoverian Championships and the title “Hanoverian Champion”. This is sometimes the beginning of a stunning international career: Nupafeed’s La Vista, third-placed horse at the Hamburg Derby with Sandra Auffarth, was for example Hanoverian Show Jumping Champion in Verden at the age of six. Verden International provides the opportunity for the already more matured young horses to win one of the desired tickets for the Nuremberg Cup. Annual highlight of the series for seven- to nine-year-old futurity prospects is the Final in Frankfurt. “We are happy to be entitled to present another qualifying competition for the Nuremberg Cup. This test matches our event concept pretty well,” says Dr. Werner Schade.
Guests from all over the world
Top horse-rider-duos from all over the world travel to Verden to compete in thrilling dressage and show jumping competitions. “There are perfect conditions in all disciplines for horses, riders and audience so that the event will be a pleasure for everybody,” emphasises Dr. Werner Schade. Many nations use the CSI** and CDI**-Tour in Verden to prepare for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon/USA. Verden International offers sighting competitions for the American team to prepare for the most important championships of the year. World ranking points will be given in the Medium and Big Tour in the show jumping course.
Everybody who wants to be owner of his or her own promising futurity prospects after having watched so many amazing contests should attend the Verden Broodmare and Foal Auction. The auction with foals by top stallions will be held as of 6.00 pm on August 3 and 4 in the Niedersachsenhalle.
