Introducing our host
Widely recognised as one of the most exciting and engaging personalities in equestrian sport today, Ingrid Klimke is an incredibly passionate and highly accomplished trainer and international cross-discipline competitor.
Ingrid has earned stellar accolades throughout her life-long career in dressage and eventing – including two Olympic gold medals, two WEG gold medals and four European Championship first-place finishes. She has been named as both FEI Ambassador, German Equestrian Federation Reitmeister and has been the esteemed recipient of the PSI Award for Outstanding Results in Equestrian Sports – as well as an eleven-time recipient of the Sportswoman of the Year Award from the city of Munster.
It’s an absolute privilege to have Ingrid headlining a sensational, action-packed program – one where our audience will get to see a true master of equestrian sport working closely with a selection of gifted participants.
On Valentine’s Day (just prior to Saturday’s main event) we’re delighted to be hosting a marvellous evening for our VIP patrons.
Beginning with a cocktail gala with drinks and appetisers being served from 5.30PM. Our guests will be able to unwind in an intimate and relaxed atmosphere before being ushered to their seats for a very special presentation starting at 7PM.
Can’t make the VIP cocktail event? No problem, as we will have limited general admission tickets available for the presentation.
Ingrid will take us on a very personal journey throughout her experience as a horsewoman from her childhood to today. She’ll share with our guests first-hand some of the highlights of her career, and guide us through some of the most incredible footage – captured from her own helmet mounted camera. To conclude this wonderful evening, Ingrid will also answer your questions in a Q&A session with the audience.
To be held in Indoor Arena 1, you can expect this sensational experience to be both inspiring and immersive with big screens and state of the art sound design to keep you as close as possible to the entertainment.
Be sure to arrive at 4PM so that you can take advantage of the deluxe shopping experience. You’ll have first pick of all the merchandise on offer from some of your favourite vendors in our immense trade village — located in Indoor Arena 2.
