After a successful relaunch of the "Aachen Dressage Days" at Hof Kasselmann in Hagen, Germany, in 2022, show organizers Renate and Franz-Josef Dahmen are thrilled to stage the next edition of this international 3* dressage competition back in Hagen on 12 - 13 June 2023.

The competition will be held over two days and features a 3* big tour and 1* small tour.

Collecting Scores

This boutique style dressage event is the ideal opportunity for riders to compete at a venue of the highest standard, yet in a low-key, quiet environment without too much pressure.

Riders can fully focus on their performance and collect qualification scores in this busy show year which has the 2023 European Dressage Championships, 2023 Pan American Games and 2023 Asian Games as end-of-the-season highlights.

Renate and Franz-Josef Dahmen
Dahmen insists in opening entries to riders from all flags and nations to give everyone the chance to compete in the best surrounding. 

"Hagen is such an amazing show ground with super stabling, warm-up and competition conditions," said Renate Dahmen. "We want all riders feel welcome at our show so they can ride a test with good scores in a good arena."

Distinguished Panel of Judges

As always, the competitions in Hagen are able to boast a distinguished panel of experienced judges which should prevent strange scoring 

The panel includes 5* judges Katrina Wust (GER), Ulrike Nivelle (GER), Maribel Alonso (MEX), and Christof Umbach (LUX), flanked by Sven Rothenberger and Gabriela Valerianova (CZE) 

The Prix St Georges and Grand Prix are ridden on Monday 12 June 2023, while on Tuesday 13 June, the Special, consolation Grand Prix and Intermediaire I will be held.
