The first horse inspection for this year’s Longines CCI5*-L competition has kicked off Luhmühlen 2019. All horses presented to the ground jury were accepted and declared fit to compete in this year’s Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials. Among the many international competitors, German riders Andreas Dibowski (FRH Butts Avedon) and Andreas Ostholt (Corvette 31) presented themselves in front of the home crowd. “I always plan my season so I can ride at least one of my horses in the big event here in Luhmühlen. Avedon feels super fit at the moment, and I hope to prove myself right for choosing to compete in the five-star competition," said Dibowski.

Tomorrow morning will start at 9:00 a.m. with the first section of dressage for the CCI4*-S Meßmer Trophy. The test ride is Miriam Engel (GER) with Bonita Bella. At 2:15 p.m. the Longines CCI5*-L will be kicked off by test rider Kai Rüder (GER) with Colani Sunrise.

The VIP Volunteer: Jim Moyer

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
