24. Manfred & Hilde Swarovski Memorial Show
29.06. – 01.07.2018

Welcome to the Schindlhof!

This year the 24th Manfred & Hilde Swarovski Memorial Show, CDI4* Schindlhof will take place from 29 June to 1 July. In the course of this international dressage show the Austrian National Para-Dressage Championship will be carried out for the third time.

Riders from 19 nations have registered for the Memorial Show. Since not all participants could be accommodated, we regrettably had to turn down a few. The spectators can look forward to the riders of a strong German team looked after by national trainer Monica Theodorescu – most notably, the number one in the world ranking and six-time Olympia champion Isabell Werth. Already almost at home at Schindlhof is the Team Olympic Champion, World- and European Champion Dorothee Schneider. Long-standing guests are, among others, the British team rider Emile Faurie and the Danish team rider and national trainer Princess Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein. Since the first show in 1995 you can also find the sympathetic professional German rider Matthias Kempkes on this year’s start list. We also want to greet especially our friend Bianca Kasselmann, who has remained loyal to us since 1995.

Our Memorial Show will also be one of the last performance reviews prior to the World Equestrian Games in America’s Tryon.

Having obviously enjoyed herself at her premiere at Schindlhof last year was Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Mahidol of Thailand, for to our great satisfaction we are fortunate to greet her this year again as well.

The first and so far only winner of the “Manfred & Hilde Challenge Trophy”, Victoria Max-Theurer, will be part of a strong Austrian team, one which can definitely hold its own in this world-class field.

A distinction for the Austrian Para-Dressage Championship is signified by the patronage assumed by Marianne Hengl. Austria’s rider in the para-dressage event is Pepo Puch, the Olympic champion in London and Rio de Janeiro, and the Athlete of the Year 2016 in Austria.

Saturday and Sunday will provide guests with an interesting show programme followed by a Hat Competition, which has also been carried out for several years in the special category “Owner with Hat and Dog”. The popular and well-known TV and theatre moderator Mirjam Weichselbraun will be moderating the Hat Competition this year as well.

We are also looking forward to greeting Klaus Philipp, one of the world’s most eminent painters of horses, who has already portrayed all the famous horses.

All entrance fees and voluntary donations will go to the charities Therapeutic Riding and Vaulting & Riding for Handicapped People, as well as to the organization Tugende Together. Even though you may have free admission, we request that you give a small donation, for every Euro counts.

We wish you an interesting and exciting dressage weekend at Schindlhof and look forward to your visit!

Yours sincerely,
Family Haim-Swarovski
