Last year, Luhmühlen created a buzz around the eventing sport not only once but twice. This year, however, we have to pay tribute to the COVID-19 situation.
“After the German government announced new restrictions on April 15, 2020, we have considered several options but unfortunately now have to cancel the Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials from June 18–21, 2020”, explained event director Julia Otto.
We would like to thank all those involved who have worked closely with us over the past few weeks to explore possible further scenarios. We look forward to the planning phase of the Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials next year (June 17–20, 2021).
With all of our best wishes from Luhmühlen:
Stay safe and we hope to see you all again in 2021!

If a horse doesn’t have a proven eventing record, those interested in finding their next eventing partner must use other criteria to evaluate a horse’s potential in the sport. Understanding and appraising a horse’s conformation can be a way to look into a crystal ball for that horse’s future suitability for eventing.
