Quadrilles in a wonderful setting
Dressage fans can once again look forward to the popular Quadrille Championships at the World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen 2016 (July 8th-17th). Team work, a sense of rhythm, precision and the finest tuning are required in the “Prize of the Handwerk” – from the music, to the individual exercises, through to the colour of the horses. The medium-level, national dressage competition that lasts one hour will be staged on Friday, July 15th starting at 6.30 p.m. It will be held in the wonderful setting of the Deutsche Bank Stadium that seats 6,300 people. Six teams, each comprising of four riders and their horses will be taking part in this competition: The local Aachen District Association, Wesel District Association (winners of the Quadrille Championship in 2015) as well as the four best teams from the Rhineland Team Dressage Championships: Viersen District Association, Krefeld District Association, Mettmann District Association and Bergisch-Land District Association. The execution and the artistic performance of the individual quadrille teams will be evaluated. The competition is endowed with 3000 Euros in prize-money.
