The top-class facilities of the Risenbeck International Equestrian Centre at Surenburg play host to the Longines FEI Jumping European Championship in 2021. Six-time European champion Ludger Beerbaum is president of the championship, but also a driving force in the development of the showground in his home town.
The European Championship takes place over five days of outstanding equestrian sport at international top level where 76 combinations from 23 nations will do battle for European medals. There’s also international classes at one-, two- and three-star level.
The British Equestrian Team
One of the youngest ever Senior championship teams to be fielded by Great Britiain, Performance Manger Di Lampard has used this opportunity to bring new faces into the fray. William Whitaker is the ‘veteran’ of the team at 32 and has represented Britain previously at the Gothenburg 2017 European Championships and World Equestrian Games in 2018. Emily Moffitt, Joe Stockdale and Georgia Tame all get a first senior call-up, and all four horses are also championship debutantes.
