The Show

International teamwork and communication, finding new friends and celebrating the communal love for horses – all in six days. This awaits approximately 140 children and youngsters from 30 nations who will all meet up from 25th to 30th July at the Bexter Hof, Herford.

Following the Show's motto "Friendships, no Championships" the German participants and their partners from abroad will succeed as a team only. Every German Rider will provide his international team partner with a horse. The two will then train together and compete together against the other teams; Jamaica meets Lüneburger Heide, South Africa and Bavaria canter together into the arena whilst Russia and Westphalia make the perfect pair.

Since the event premier in 1999 it has continued to attract the interest of budding young riders worldwide. Hundreds of requests to ride, reach the Show Office for each new edition of the Sparkassen German Friendships.
