Just as every comedian has a sidekick to spice up the action of the show(think Krusty the Clown and Sideshow Bob), does every big international competition have a sideshow to nourish the event. At the 2001 European Dressage Championships going on August 8 - 12, 2001, the 2001 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses have to lure to crowds to Verden, Germany.
These exceptional Young Horse Championships debuted in 1997 in Verden and were reorganized in 1999 and 2000 in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The fourth edition of the show moves back to its roots in Verden, Germany, and promises to be more spicy than ever.
The World Championships are an exquisite opportunity to scrutinize the talent of 5 and 6-year-old dressage horses which are most likely to become the future Olympic gold medallists.
