After 25 years, there will be no public event of the renowned equestrian education series "Die Alten Meister / Old Masters" this year.

After many months of planning and intensive discussions about alternative concepts in view of the corona pandemic, it is now final that the ‘The Old Masters’ presentations scheduled for September to November 2020 will unfortunately have to be canceled. 

The Horses and Dreams Entertainment GmbH had been meaning to host the "The Old Masters" series together with Christina Henning this year, with nine locations in Germany and top-class guests such as Isabell Werth, Hubertus Schmidt, Helen Langehanenberg and Monica Theodorescu already confirmed. It had long been hoped that the development of the corona pandemic would weaken and that the number of visitors allowed at indoor events would be eased, but according to the latest reports, this is still a long way off. The health and safety of visitors and participants has priority, which is why the organizers in consultation with sponsors and partners decided to take this course of action. Many of the current restrictions of the Corona regulations will apply until the end of October and it is highly likely that not much will change until mid-November. 

"Let's hope that in 2021 life will go back to normal and that the events can be carried out in the usual way," emphasizes Christina Henning from Frank R. Henning Exclusive Marketing.

In the meantime, equestrians and long-time fans of the event series are asked for their understanding. The Horses and Dreams Entertainment GmbH team are currently in regular discussion with ClipMyHorse.TV and some of the presenters and riders to try and create at least a bit of the Old Masters atmosphere "on the screen” at upcoming competitions.
