Was the weather god for the groblangheim riding club "am schwanberg"? At this year’s dressage and show jumping competition on friday and saturday he was not exactly well-disposed, but on sunday afternoon he showed his best side. At the competitions, from the simple riding competition over the jumping competitions up to the dressage competition of the class S at the riding facility of the family herbert pfriem, especially the jumping competitions of the class L and M on sunday afternoon attracted a lot of spectators.
Despite the rainfall on saturday morning, everything went smoothly. The responsible persons thanked with heartfelt words and also with prasents all those who contributed to the smooth running of the event. The team from the registration office received an honorary award on behalf of all the helpers.
The attraction of the tournament can be seen in the number of participants: around 450 horses from the federal states of bavaria, baden-wurttemberg, hesse and rhineland-palatinate were at the start. Spectators not only experienced exciting equestrian sport, but were also able to visit the stables in the riding facility . On sunday afternoon, the groblangheimer musicians played with powerful brass music and bert grebner from jarkendorf showed with his jerk horse of the breed "suddeutsches kaltblut", that even heavier calibers respond quickly to commandos.
At the dressage competitions on friday and saturday the pure horse and dressage fans were on site as spectators. That the highest level of concentration is required was evident in the advanced dressage test, where every movement is judged at a change of tempo or stride and it is often not obvious to the layman what was particularly good or not so successful at the time.
