A World- and European Championship qualification and a real princess

It's all about the championship qualification! At the second international four-star dressage tournament in 2022 at Achleiten Castle (Upper Austria), the entire domestic elite will be at the start from June 17 to 19. And a real princess.

Austria's best dressage riders will compete in the Schlosspark quadrangle to qualify for the World Championships in Herning (DEN, August 6-14, 2022) and the young dressage riders (YR, J) will qualify for the European Championships in Hartpury (GBR, July 25-31).

"We can look forward to a beautiful round and dressage sport at the highest level," explains castle mistress and organizer Elisabeth Max-Theurer. "The excitement is particularly great this time because Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana from Thailand, together with her large entourage, is our guest for the first time. Of course, we feel very honored and have taken all precautions to ensure that the Thai delegation also feels at home with us."

"Her Royal Highness" Sirivannavari Nariratana from Thailand, daughter of King Rama X had already caused quite a stir in 2017, 2018 and 2019 with her large entourage in Austria at the CDI Schindlhof in the Tyrol.
