The first stop of the Event Rider Masters (ERM) in mainland Europe starts this Friday with Leg 2 of the 2017 series at the Internationales Wiesbadener PfingstTurnier, Germany, 2nd – 3rd June. This is the first competition leg to take place on the continent at the unique location of Biebrich Palace, on the banks of the Rhine River in the city of Wiesbaden.
The ‘locals’, Germany are playing a strong hand and are represented by an awesome line up of fourteen horse and rider combinations, including SAP Sports Ambassador and ERM debutant Ingrid Klimke. The five times Olympian won at Wiesbaden at the same level in 2016 after producing a remarkable dressage score of 27.3. Furthermore, her horse SAP Escada FRH is renowned for being brilliant in all three phases and the pair are ear-marked as the likely favourites to feature on the ERM podium on Saturday afternoon.
SAP Sports Ambassador Ingrid Klimke commented:
“I’m really excited that the Event Rider Masters is coming to Germany for the first time and I am looking forward to competing in Wiesbaden.”
