The German Equestrian Federation is holding its first of two selection trials for the 2022 World Young Horse Championships at the DOKR headquarters in Warendorf on 11 - 13 July 2022. 

On the first two days the selectors saw the 5-year old candidates in training (11 July) and ride the preliminary test (12 July). Based on those two rounds, the selectors picked a group of 5-year olds which are eligible to re-present themselves at the second selection trial on 16 - 17 August 202.
