The international rider will be hosting a series of seven indoor shows at his equestrian centre between October 2016 and March 2017.
“There are fewer and fewer indoor shows and the ones that are still being held aren’t always good quality,“ said Holger Hetzel. “That’s why we decided to take advantage of our great facilities and put on shows during the indoor season“.
“Our priorities are to put on a high quality event, offer optimum conditions to horse and rider, ensure a manageable number of entries and promote our sport,” said the Rhineland State Trainer, explaining his show concept. Holger Hetzel and his team do everything possible to create the perfect competition environment for the riders and horses, and a great experience for spectators. “I like to say that riding at my place is like riding in your living room,” said Holger. Over the winter months the shows allow Holger to systematically check that riders and horses are making excellent progress.
The classes at the one-day shows extend from 1.10-1.30m young horse classes to regular 1.10-1.40m classes. The shows are run as standard affiliated shows with the usual entry fees and prize money.
Peter Schumacher is the course builder. He’s built courses at German championships and international shows.
Restricting the number of entries in each class optimises the show schedule and makes the events more exclusive. C and D squad members and prospective squad members in Rhineland with special permission to enter from the Rhineland Equestrian Association are allowed to ride there. Members of the host riding club RSG Niederrhein and several personally invited riders are also eligible to enter the show. To request an invitation call +49-2823 18524.
