This year, three-time Olympic champion and European and world champion in event racing, Michael Jung, was a true riding icon at the start of the “Horse Festival” in Immenhöfe.

Donaueschingen – As a show-hopper, the international star from Horb is one of the regular guests at Immenhöfe. World reigning champion Simon Bloom has also been recorded. The Horse Festival once again lives up to its reputation as a first-class horse show. All the starting places for the various jumping tests are occupied, and a variety of competitions take place over four days from the early morning hours until the evening hours.



The new Horst Gibbers pony tour nationwide. Immenhöfe is the only stop in Baden-Württemberg. For tournament organizers Christian and Uche Friese, this is further confirmation of their work, as the whole team is always on top. The pony show has already proven itself. Tomorrow’s VIP will be presented over two days and the auction will take place on Saturday evening.

Night of the popular show

After the famous evening premiere of Thursday night has been canceled for the past two years, you can look forward to some surprises this year. Among other things, the daring racers from France will ensure real action. Inka Weinreich and Valerie Klumpp are responsible for the program and guarantee real features. A costume jump has also been announced. The Horse Festival will once again be accompanied by a diverse exhibition. It’s not as big as it was in previous years, but with its own offerings for all things horses, it makes an interesting mix.

The general enthusiasm for the four-day horse show is reflected in more than 200 patrons. “Our concept with the mix, rides, sponsors, entertainment and loyal viewers has proven itself,” Christian and Uchi Friese are delighted.

All event areas are accessible to spectators. For this purpose, the regulator has invested in a safety concept based on the latest findings. With environmental awareness, attention is constantly paid to environmentally friendly logistics.
