After 25 years of successful national tournaments and 75 years of club history, the Reit- und Fahrverein Ludwigsburg Schloss Monrepos wanted 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 explained at the 2021 premiere.
As one of the best-kept insider tips of the equestrian calendar, the four-day dressage festival attracts everything that has rank and name in the equestrian world: Olympic medallists, world and European champions, but also up-and-coming riders, amateurs or pony riders. The rare opportunity to ride on the dressage arena in front of Monrepos Castle, specifically laid out for the tournament, combined with a relaxed atmosphere, a beautiful venue and warm hospitality, leads to an exclusive boutique show experience.
