I'd like to point out to our readers Chris Hector's fabulous interview with Dr Ludwig Christmann, breeding director of the Hanoverian verband. Chris asks Christmann which stallions are hot on the Hanoverian market, and investigates which sires will be called foundation stallions in a decade.
Buckle up for one of the most exciting annual dressage competitions on American soil. Dressage at Devon is coming up, so take out your rain coats and boots, as well as your regular clothes because the weather over there is always unpredictable.
There is no show like Aachen. No matter if it's an Olympic Games, a World Equestrian Games or a World Cup Finals, they all tail after the annual "Worldfestival of Equestrian sports", aka the CHIO Aachen.
Yesterday evening it was Oscar night, this means staying up till 2 AM to be able to watch the 4-hour show. Avid to see the stars in their glamourous frocks and elegant tuxedos, we cocoon in front of the tv to admire the glitter of a dreamed world unreachable to many. Cinefiles world-wide cross their fingers to see their favourite movie decorated.
The time is ripe to buy new horses. The winter is the period to acquire a new equine partner for future love, happiness and show success. Enough time to adapt to each other during the winter months, and ready for competition when the season starts in March or April.
