After 25 years of successful national tournaments and 75 years of club history, the Reit- und Fahrverein Ludwigsburg Schloss Monrepos is seeking to establish itself in the international event calendar. The idea of the first international dressage tournament in Ludwigsburg was conceived by Ullrich Kasselmann and the chairman of the club, Dr. Werner Hildenbrand. “I have been looking for a long time for a special setting to present top-class sport, Monrepos Castle and dressage are a wonderful combination, ” Ullrich Kasselmann explains.
Participants and visitors can look forward to great dressage up to CDI4* level, lifestyle and entertainment in front of the exclusive and special backdrop of Schloss Monrepos.
“The club is 100 per cent behind the project – the members are enthusiastic about this idea and will be fully committed. We are very proud of our long-held wish to host a event directly in front of the castle with a renowned partner like Ulli Kasselmann, ”said Dr. Hildenbrand.
Dressage fans should mark the date in their calendars: A CDI1* and CDI4* tour, qualification for the NÜRNBERGER BURG-POKAL as well as the final of the NÜRNBERGER BURG-POKAL for juniors and the Pony Masters Baden Württemberg are scheduled. The schedule is now online and entries close 6 September 2021. Following the FEI Dressage European Championships in Hagen a.T.W. a few days earlier, this will be another opportunity to see top dressage live. Admission will be free of charge this year.
The parklands of the Monrepos domain will be used as an exhibition space and present traders from the lifestyle, equestrian, fashion and gastronomy sectors with the opportunity to offer their goods and products.
