Tiemeyer x Hetzel Young Horse Masters
The “Tiemeyer x Hetzel Young Horse Masters" took place from 27.- 30. July 2023. The five to eight-year-old horses that reached the final competed for total prize money of €150,000. No other show in Germany has such a generous prize money offering:
- 5yo: 25.000,00 €
- 6yo: 50.000,00 €
- 7&8yo: 75.000,00 €
There were no style scores at the event to ensure that all the horses, whatever their jumping technique, had the opportunity to qualify for the final.
One important motivation for Holger Hetzel to organise a youngster championship is his great passion for discovering young horses and giving them a competition platform that allows them to develop and be discovered.

Host Holger Hetzel was clearly delighted with the outcome of the four-day show on Sunday evening: “It was amazing to get so much positive feedback from the riders and visitors. Everyone said how much they’d enjoyed the event and that they’re looking forward to returning next year. And my entire team has been amazing. I’m so proud of them. They did a perfect job on all the four days. Happy Hour, with free drinks for riders and spectators on Friday evening, was so popular that we turned it into a Happy Evening.” On Saturday the visitors were the guests of Holger Hetzel and the Flanders Foal Auction, enjoying a generous barbecue buffet and free drinks, plus the wonderful atmosphere.
