In 2017, Offenburg's international showjumping event will welcome riders and spectators for the 10th time! The schedule will be full of high-quality showjumping and vaulting competition. Offenburg's exhibition center is the ideal location for such an important event: The Baden-Arena with a surface of 6.600 square meters and places for about 2.500 spectators offers ideal conditions for top-class competition. Practice arena, stables in closed, heated halls and the 4-stars Mercure Hotel on the fairground are within spitting distance.
More than 140 riders and over 350 horses will compete in about 20 competitions for a price money of more than 150.000 Euro! Again the best of them, winning the Offenburg Grand-Prix, presented by the SÜDWESTBANK on Sunday afternoon, will go home with a new city car, sponsored by S & G Automobil AG.
Besides that, in four competitions the riders are credited with precious points for the LONGINES Ranking!
An attractive program, an ideal location and the international, but familial flair of a top-class event are the key factors for the successful show concept. The fans like coming to Offenburg, not only for seeing some of the world's best riders performing, but also for enjoying the mixture of show, party and top sport.
By the way, regarding top sport: Not only the riders will compete in 2017 for the first places:
There will be again an own competition for the vaulters! In the first years, vaulting was included in the show program. The successful and very spectacular performances made the organizing committee to decide to include vaulting in the official program. Five to six squads, among them the World Champions, will fight in two freestyle rounds for a price money amounting to 4.000 Euro! Vaulting at this level is spectacular, graceful and fascinating. Let us entertain you by some of the world's best vaulting squads and their amazing dance on a galopping horse - an unforgettable event for enthusing the whole family!
