This year again, Mitja Hinzpeter called all working equitation riders, fans and interested people together on the second weekend of July at the Wintermühle in Neu-Anspach. But this year, not "only" one of the biggest working equitation competitions in the world was to take place there - to top it all off, the German Championships 2023 were also to be held in Hochtaunus.
In tropical temperatures, a great atmosphere and fantastic rides, the competitors competed for the title of German Working Equitation Champion in the disciplines dressage, style trail, speed trail and cattle work.

The Riding Pad & Paddle Configurator is online!
Finally the time has come! Our riding pad & paddle configurator is online!!!
We have received many requests for customisation options for our riding pads & paddle. Now the time has finally come and our new riding pad & paddle configurator is online. Here we offer you a variety of options and possibilities to design your individual paddle. A riding pad, a paddle and now also the Worker Paddle can be individually configured and designed.
The new Paddle Fitting System
As an aid to easy adjustment of the paddle, we have developed the matching Fitting System. The adjustment with the template of the Fitting System and the 12mm spanner enables a precise fit directly on the horse. For this purpose, we have created a step-by-step guide in the "Magazine" section. In addition, we show you in two videos the individual steps for "Fitting a paddle with the Fitting System" and which special features should be taken into account when fitting particularly wide, narrow or short horses.
