WHAT IS THE BUNDESCHAMPIONATE ?
It is considered to be a very prestigious award for any horse or pony to make the finals at the Bundeschampionate for the breeder, the rider and the owner ! Of course winning a gold, silver or bronze is a dream for all !
This competition is for young warmbloods and young German Riding Ponies between the ages of 3 and 6 years old. At the one event held over four days there are classes for Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross country for both ponies and horses. There is also Bundeschampionate Carriage Driving however this is held on a different weekend.
Potentially there are thousands of ponies and thousands of horses vying to qualify and be selected to compete at the Bundeschampionate.
Three and four year old dressage ponies and dressage horses have several rounds to perform and then the final three horses are ridden by two test riders to determine the final winner ! The five and six year old dressage horses perform dressage tests and then there are usually around 10 finalists that perform a final dressage test to determine the winner.
In the case of ponies, they can be ridden by an adult in the three and four year old dressage classes however the five and six year old ponies must be ridden by a child 17 years and under. When Adults ride ponies they must also be under 62kg wearing their show gear.
