Mannheim Maimarkt, 6 - 8 May 2007

Good luck to all those riders who have gone to Germany for the FEI competition in Mannheim. Many countries including GB will be using this event as part of thier selection trials for this year's World Championships in Hartpury.


It's not a Paralympic qualifier which is why the Irish have opted to go to Austria instead, as we can try and improve on our Paralympic qualifying scores. However, I've heard that Mannheim has a fantastic atmosphere (as well as great prize money, which is a bonus!) Hopefully I will get to ride there one day.

The results are available as the competition progresses, on the Hippo Data website. It's all in German but it's fairly easy to navigate.
