FRIENDSHIPS NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS
Experiencing and living international teamwork and intercultural understanding, finding new friends, practicing foreign languages, and celebrating our love for horses together – and all of that in six days. The team classes are the main element of the Sparkassen German Friendships. Approximately 140 riders from more than 30 nations will participate in the team competitions.
Furthermore, we have the Friends Forever Trophy, the ATCO-Cup - Return of the Champions, regional classes, side events and a big marketplace - all this are the German Friendships.
