Special prizes in the 5th MERA Winter Competition Series
Riders collect points at each of the shows in the 5th MERA Winter Competition Series towards three special prizes at the final show.
“I’m very pleased that our fantastic sponsors this year have made it possible for us to present some fantastic prizes to our riders. We’re also delighted and honoured to welcome Jaguar Land Rover on board as a strong new partner.”
The special prizes:
- First prize: A car (1 year free driving) sponsored by JAGUAR LAND ROVER
- Second prize: A course of 8 jumps (on loan for the summer season) sponsored by CARO
- Third prize: Three nights at Kuhotel by RILANO in Kitzbühel , sponsored by RILANO
(Points are scored in all the classes at each show: 1st place = 3 points, 2nd place = 2 points, 3rd place = 1 point). But if a rider has two horses placed in the top three in any one class, points are only scored for the highest placing.)
At the final show in March 2019 the prizes were presented to the three leading riders in front of a big crowd of spectators. Alexander Fries, master of ceremonies, found the perfect words to congratulate the winners.
