The 26th Manfred & Hilde Swarovski Memorial Show
CDI4* Schindlhof, 08 – 10 July 2022
Welcome to the Schindlhof!
We are very much looking forward to staging the 26th Manfred & Hilde Swarovski Memorial Show, CDI4* Schindlhof, from July 08th to 10th 2022!
After a break of 2 years due to CORONA, we have decided to risk hosting a further international CDI**** dressage show at Schindlhof (8-10 July) in remembrance of Manfred and Hilde Swarovski.
The last two years of this compulsory interruption have changed much in our lives.
As spectators you will be able to follow not only the rides of world-class riders, but also the “elder generation” of riders, who still have a great deal of fun and joy taking part in this CDI. In a separate “above 60” competition, only riders from the age of 60 onwards are entitled to participate. You will see how the sport of riding keeps them in shape – even 80 year-old riders are able to pit themselves against riders some 20 years younger. They also will compete in a GP and GP-Freestyle.
This year we will dispense with the concert in the indoor arena and the festivities on Saturday evening. A smaller tent will be provided for gastronomy facilities. Only an “evening in honour of the dressage riders” will take place.
Despite the general cost-cutting measures in many firms we were able to motivate sponsors to support our tournament financially, and for this we are very grateful.
Our long-standing friend Klaus Phillip, who was able to celebrate his 90th birthday this year and who enthralled us for many years with his horse portraits, will for the first time unfortunately not be attending our event. The Tyrolean artist Elmar Peintner, who enjoys an international reputation, will be presenting a selection of his works.
Under no circumstances were we willing to do without the long-standing tradition of the “owner with hat with and without dog” competition. Many visitors with original and usually self-crafted hats look forward to their appearance on Sunday at noontime. The Tyrolean Jasmin Lindner, acclaimed as the world’s best female vaulter (acrobat on horseback) of all time, together with her partner Lukas Wacha, will be giving a sample of their proficiency in a freestyle music event.
As has been the case every year, the proceeds from the admission tickets and voluntary donations will be given in equal measure to the organisations Therapeutic Riding and Vaulting” and “Riding For Handicapped Persons”. Even though you may have free admission, we request that you make a small donation, because every Euro counts.
Possible new CORONA stipulations – in the event that they become necessary – will be promptly publicised at the entrance gate.
For those who are unable to come to Schindlhof there is still the possibility to follow the tournament rides via “ClipMyHorse.TV”.
We wish all visitors a relaxing weekend and all participants “Good luck!” in our 26th Manfred & Hilde Swarovski Memorial Show.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU SOON!
July 08th to 10th 2022
