MERA Winter Competition Series
Regional trainer Holger Hetzel is hosting the 6th MERA Winter Competition Series between October 2019 and March 2020. The shows take place once a month, offering excellent conditions for horses and riders, and classes ranging from young horse to 1.50m competitions. The sponsor of the sixth Winter Competition Series is still MERA Tiernahrung GmbH from Kevelaer, a leading manufacturer of premium products for pets.
“The success of our pilot show jumping event in the summer has encouraged us to introduce innovations and positive changes in our winter competition series,” said Holger Hetzel. “We intend to lead the way in German show jumping by organising good-quality shows that focus on the riders’ needs.” At each of the six shows we’ll be exploiting all the options available to us under the LPO (the German equestrian sports regulations) to drive innovation. Riders will be able to jump another correction round after classes from the first show in October onwards.
Excellent arena surfaces, new and innovative jumps and an international course builder, plus classes with a limited number of entries and rider-friendly schedules are other exclusive advantages offered by this winter series.
