The German Team that will compete at the 2005 European Dressage Championships, has rallied at the DOKR training center in Warendorf for three days of team training before going to the Championships in Hagen, Germany.
Hubertus Schmidt, Heike Kemmer, Klaus Husenbeth, Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff and Ellen Schulten Baumer have trailered their horses to the DOKR center on Friday afternoon. The German team did some team building on Friday evening by going out for dinner together in Warendorf . On Saturday morning, they had their first training session together with chef d'Equipe Holger Schmezer.
"The atmosphere in the team is outstanding and all horses are in top shape," Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff said. "It's a good change for me to see the other riders school their horses as if they are at home."
On Monday morning the German team will train together for one last time, before taking the horses to Hof Kasselmann in Hagen.
