Entries are in for The Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials

The Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials entries have closed and promise exciting sport. A strong international field, with a total of 21 nations represented, is headed by reigning World Champion and Badminton 2022 runner-up Ros Canter from Great Britain.

Many top stars of the international eventing scene will be competing in the Longines CCI5*-L and the CCI4*-S Meßmer Trophy (German Championships), aiming not only to take home a win but hoping to impress the selectors to secure one of the coveted starting places for the World Championships, which will be held in Pratoni, Italy, in September. “In just a few weeks we will be welcoming some of the best international horses and riders. We are very much looking forward to seeing these exceptional athletes shine again in front of an audience on a big stage”, says event director Julia Otto. As announced by Germany’s Chef d’Equipe Peter Thomsen, almost the entire German Olympic squad has entered: Sandra Auffarth, Andreas Dibowski, Michael Jung, Ingrid Klimke, Dirk Schrade, Anna Siemer and Christoph Wahler.

Michael Jung is planning to compete Highlighter in the CCI4*-S Meßmer Trophy: “Luhmühlen is a special event for me because I have so many great memories of competing here. I am really looking forward to coming back this year!” Eventing icon and Olympic legend Andrew Hoy (AUS) is also planning to compete as well as Ireland’s Cathal Daniels, who has entered two horses, one of which is his mare Rioghan Rua, with whom he won bronze at the 2019 European Championships in Luhmühlen. British rider Tom McEwen, 2020 Olympic team gold and individual silver medallist has entered two horses. “Super Couple” Jonelle and Tim Price (NZL) plan to compete four horses, including Jonelle’s Luhmühlen 2018 winner Faerie Dianimo and Tim’s Olympic mount Vitali. The American contingent includes Lauren Nicholson and William Coleman.

Remember when…… 40 years ago, the World Championships were held in Luhmühlen.
To mark the occasion of the anniversary, British rider Lucinda Green, Luhmühlen’s World Champion from 1982, will be a guest. In an exclusive training session with four riders, she will present her renowned training methods to the audience on Friday. The show programme is presented by the equestrian brand LeMieux. With Robert Lemieux, the 1989 Luhmühlen winner returns as sponsoring partner. Ulla Kimmig’s “mobile gallery” will display pictures which were originally printed in Luhmühlen’s World Championship book, published in 1982 by Ed Minhoff and JustAndreas Rogge (†). Kimmig and sports photographer Enno Friedrich reprinted the photographs which will be exhibited in Kimmig’s mobile gallery during the Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials from 16 – 19 June 2022.
