Aachen Youngstars postponed until spring 2021
The Aachen Youngstars is being postponed until spring 2021. The current situation has made no other decision possible. “We deeply regret having to postpone the event, because promoting aspiring talents has long since been a key element of our work, however the health of the athletes and that of our employees and all persons involved in the show takes top priority,” said Frank Kemperman, Chairman of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. (ALRV), organisers of the event. The Aachen Dressage Youngstars was originally scheduled to take place at the end of November and the Aachen Jumping Youngstars at the beginning of December. The options for staging the events in the coming spring are currently being checked, according to Kemperman. The organisers intend to announce the details as soon as possible.
