- Show program
A colourful and newly designed show program with over 40 horse breeds attracted even 2016 thousands of visitors in the large Olympic equestrian Stadium.
Traditionally, there is something new at the Pferd International Munich every year. Since this time no Steeplechasing took place, the riders were intensively integrated in the show program. Georg Bacher, from the leading Zach Valley and Claus Luber are two old hands when it comes to the driving sport with great shows. Extra for the Pferd International Munich she studied a driving quadrille from one horse carriage. Whether Shetlands or Frisian horses, cold-blooded animals or hot – many horse breeds were at this spectacle, which was held on the Saturday and Sunday of the event and has inspired the audience.
Also on the Thursday and Friday driving enthusiasts were not to be disappointed. A relay races obstacle style course for driving buggies promised to be interesting. A true highlight in the exhibition program: Andreas Maurus of Germany who ran his ten strong through the Olympic Stadium made the ground shake and hearts race as spectators cheered him on. For many years, the Allgäu ten harnessed train belongs to the highlights of each exhibition for Pferd International Munich.
When Artur Nieberle enters the stadium with his ponies, not only the children are amazed. The stunts and showmanship of this attraction are always among the highlights of each program. The ponies in costumes and igniting all imagination, leave no wishes unfulfilled.
Tempo, skill and technique are exhibited when the racing pony riders at the mounted games are performed in the large stadium. Horse and ponies galloped at high speeds while performing skill and pop-up games. The riders are between 14 and 30 years old from various Bavarian Clubs, ride their four-legged friends without spurs or whips. Each team has done its best to earn points for the Team Championship.
The Bavarian principal and state stud of Schwaiganger was once again on site with the best apprentices and trainers in which gave an insight into the “Farmer” dream job both in theory and practice. Even those who would like to buy a horse at Pferd International Munich had their opportunity! Stud Director Dr. Eberhard Senckenberg sent several Yearlings to the Pferd International Munich and also the regional Bavarian horse breeders association had multiple high level horses for sale known as “Bavaria’s Stars”.
Three brewery carts from Zwiesel demonstrated a contest of crowning the Maremma Tuscan their traditional way of riding with special saddle and bridle, to show the work of the “buttero”, as well as the traditional art of Maremmanos. Pure tradition and culture directly from Italy.
