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!
Having this historic competition close isn't the right result for the sport, and the United States Eventing Association (USEA) is working hard to find a solution. The organizer and landowners operate exceptional events on a beautiful piece of land. We are deeply sensitive to the history of the word "plantation" and its connection to slavery; however, this property has no known connections to slavery and was instead named after 'plantings' on the property.
After a quiet spring season due to COVID-19, the fall season is ramping up and this weekend we have the first of two West Coast CCI4*-S events taking place at Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles, California.
