In the current issue of the CHIO Aachen Magazine some of the top equestrian athletes in the world reveal what their career aspirations were when they were children – and the photographer Michael Strauch has captured these impressions.
The painter Hans Wittl (www.hans-wittl.de) has been visiting the CHIO Aachen for the past 50 years. The 75-year-old has not only created many of the motifs for the current magazine, but he also painted the cover page.
Monica Theodorescu has placed her focus on the dressage. On the occasion of the CHIO Aachen 2011, the highly successful international rider has taken on a role as a guest author covering her chosen discipline.
A portrait on the British eventing gentleman, William Fox-Pitt, a review of the CHIO Aachen 2011 and an insight into the history of the event round off the current issue. The CHIO Aachen Magazine is published twice a year and costs 6.50 Euros. All subscription details (11.50 Euros/year, plus postage) are available online (www.chioaachen.de) or per email from the Aachener Reitturnier GmbH: firstname.lastname@example.org.
