A HansePferd Premiere: the Extreme Trail Parcours

Ponies and Horses from more than 35 Races

Trainers present at the shows will be more than willing to give you tips for dealing with horses.

Fair guests: Alizée Froment, Michael Geitner, Philippe Karl, and Wolfgang Marlie

Each day, the programme of the horse fair includes more than 100 demonstrations and lectures. In 2016, the focal theme will be the training of horse and rider. For the first time, Alizée Froment will attend HansePferd Hamburg with her horses and daily demonstrate her training methods. Another horse expert presented at the fair for the very first time will be the horse trainer Michael Geitner. The French Philippe Karl and Wolfgang Marlie have also confirmed their attendance along with numerous other coaches and trainers.

Gala Show & Family Programme

Also for families and children, there will be a lot to see and experience, including a Little Kids ranch in the western town of Golden Valley, where small visitors will be able to swing the lasso and throw horseshoes.

International top stars, national champion of horsemanship and regional favorites will contribute to the special charm of the horse gala, held each at 19.30 clock at HansePferd’s big show hall.
