Clayton Fredericks is one of the best eventers in the world. In his spare time he also plays in a band – super rock music as he puts it himself. He really let things rip as a rock ‘n’ roller for the new CHIO Aachen Magazine, Issue 29: He took on the roles of Slash, Angus Young and even Axl Rose. The remarkable photo series that subsequently arose is called “for those about to rock”.
Furthermore, the magazine also presents Dutch equestrian stars – in an exceptional photo shooting Hinrich Romeike and others recount what meaning their native country has for them and Laura Bechtolsheimer, number 4 in the dressage world ranking, explains why she is a country bumpkin and why dressage isn’t the be-all and end-all. The issue additionally also includes current coverage and interviews on the CHIO Aachen 2010. “The CHIO Aachen Magazine is full of surprises: it shows horses and riders in special prospects, it is emotional and arouses enthusiasm for our fantastic sport”, says Michael Mronz, the General Manager of the Aachener Reitturnier GmbH.  

The magazine can be purchased at the CHIO offices at the showgrounds or alternatively it can be ordered directly by email ( It costs €6.50. You can already browse through selected passages online at:
