From today onwards, Germany’s best aspiring young show-jumpers are competing against each other at the CHIO Aachen showgrounds to claim the title of Indoor Champion. Up until Sunday just under 20 classes in four age groups are on the agenda of the Aachen Jumping Youngstars – admission to the Albert-Vahle Arena is free of charge.
Enjoying the Christmas market atmosphere in the arena while experiencing top equestrian sport live – that’s what characterises the Aachen Jumping Youngstars, which have been attracting the best young show-jumpers to Aachen for over a quarter of a decade. Starting today the hunt is on for the Indoor Champions in the four age groups Children (12-14 years on horses), Ponies (up to 16), Juniors (up to 18) and Young Riders (up to 21) – the best riders over all four days of the show. 200 athletes with 287 horses have travelled to Aachen. Special tip: The Saturday of the show is the traditional family day with dog racing, lead-rein classes, the CHIO mascot “Karli” and a visit from Santa.
Today, the classes of the Juniors and Young Riders kicked off at 2 p.m. Which is also when “ClipMyHorse.TV” began the live broadcasts of the competitions in the Albert-Vahle Arena. The Internet TV channel is on board live every day. The “Aachen Jumping Youngstars – Salut-Festival” is being staged until Sunday. All classes can be watched live on www.clipmyhorse.tv. “Our experienced partners from ClipMyHorse.TV will allow those, who can’t be there in person, to enjoy the event too,” said Frank Kemperman, Chairman of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. (ALRV), the event organisers.
Admission is free of charge. The visitors can also park on Areal A in the Albert-Servais-Allee for free. And several exhibitors inside the arena will provide ideas for Christmas gifts – from riding gloves through to the official mobility partner, Mercedes-Benz.
