The Hanoverian Horse Society of Australia will again be sponsoring NSW Young Dressage Horse Championships at this years Sydney CDI 3rd to 5th May.
Andreas Schöffner from Germany will be the young horse guest rider of the three finalists from the 4yo, 5yo & 6yo classes at the coming Sydney CDI. Andreas will ride the finalists in front of a panel of Judges who together will determine the overall winner in each age group.
Andreas completed his "Bereiter" training with Wolfram Wittig who is one of the most successful trainers worldwide and the current coach of Isabell Werth.
Andreas has had numerous opportunities to gain experience and train horses from young horses through to higher levels, as well as coaching riders.
In 2008 Andreas was appointed as the Bereiter for Mrs Gudula Vorwerk-Happ (the owner of Rubenstein) where he spent a period of time riding and training her young horses and stallions.
Since 2009, Andreas has his own stables where he takes in horses for training and competition, as well as giving clinics and studying.
