It is one of the most important junior riding tournaments in the world and a viewing for the European Championships in dressage and jumping. At Future Champions at the Hof Kasselmann in Hagen a.T.W. from 11th to 16th June 2019 there will also be a station of the FEI JUMPING NATIONS CUP™ YOUTH. The tournament is also considered a test event for the new formats of the riding competitions at the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020. In other words, numerous officials from all over the world will get to know the drawing process for lots of starters, dressage and jumping procedures, time recording in the course and much more about a perfect riding tournament.  

Future Champions started today with a qualification for the Bundeschampionat for five-year-old dressage horses. Here, 9 pairs were able to break the 8.0 mark and are thus qualified for the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf in September. Hagener Eva Möller and her Westphalian mare Espe (Escolar x Mi Maggio) twice earned the 9.0 for trot and perspective. Thus the pair achieved an overall score of 8.80 and the first place in the first division in this competition. Hof Kasselmann rider Lars Ligus and the Hanoverian stallion Nuit D'or took first place in the second division with an overall score of 8.40.

From Wednesday on, the age groups Pony Riders (up to 16 years on ponies), Children (up to 14 years on large horses), Juniors (up to 18 years on large horses) and Young Riders (up to 21 years on large horses) will continue in the disciplines dressage and jumping. Team and individual decisions will be made in each case. The process is therefore exactly the same as the one used in the senior camp at championship level. Future Champions is therefore both a sighting and a practice tournament, because the experience gained by the young talents at Borgberg is valuable for life and for their future careers in the saddle. "Future Champions is also a very important meeting place," says Ullrich Kasselmann, host of the tournament. "This is where friendships for life develop and Future Champions also contributes to international understanding. Young equestrians from all over the world meet here, exchange ideas and share their passion for horses. That creates connection!” The highlights are the Grand Prix’s, which are held in classes for all age groups, and the finals, which are contested in the arena.

But the Future Champions also roll out the red carpet for the youngest rider who can compete in the Prize of the Sparkasse Osnabrück, a simpler riding competition.
