Over 170 riders from 22 nations with more than 330 horses will be competing over the five days of the horse show – for those in charge an organisational and logistical challenge. After all the optimal conditions for both competitors and horses to be found in Stuttgart are renowned all over the world. Fans are not only looking forward to top class equestrian sport over the obstacles and in the dressage arena, every year they also enjoy the attractive and high-class show evening – something that is shown by the ticket sales: “We’ve already sold 45,000 tickets,” said a pleased Andreas Kroll, the CEO of the in.Stuttgart Veranstaltungsgesellschaft, the event organisers, “there are only a few tickets left for Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon.”
