After seven successful years in Munich at Pferd International, World Dressage Masters will move on to Wiesbaden (GER). The prestigious Wiesbaden Pfingsturnier celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2016 and will be the new host of WDM in Germany until 2018. WDM Wiesbaden is scheduled from 13 until 16 May 2016.

The Wiesbaden Pfingstturnier has a lot to offer: high quality organization, a good date, top conditions for riders and horses, a huge number of visitors, incredible sponsors and worldwide media attention.

Therefore WDM is looking forward to the cooperation with the organizers of the Wiesbaden Pfingstturnier. Parties have concluded an initial three year contract. WDM and the Pfingstturnier are very confident that the dressage competition in Wiesbaden will be raised to an even higher level.

Jochen Kettner, member of the Board of the Wiesbaden Reit- und Fahr- Club, stated: “We are looking forward to the cooperation with WDM. Evidently our show already has a good reputation and a beautiful setting in the Schlosspark Biebrich. Every year we have a sold-out Kur on the Saturday evening under floodlights. Looking at the enormous impulse WDM gave Pferd International in the past seven years, we are very proud to have been chosen as the next host of WDM in Germany. The entire Wiesbaden Organizing Committee as well as our sponsors see it as a great chance to make our show more visible internationally, amongst others because of WDM’s partnership with Eurosport.”

From 2009 until 2015 Pferd International hosted the World Dressage Masters. Pferd International was among the first shows to work with WDM. Therefore WDM would like to thank Pferd International and sponsor Nürnberger Versicherungsgruppe for their trust and commitment over the last 7 years.
