Unobstructed view to the training track

For those who are not only interested in the competitions of WM2019, but may also want to look at the world's best Icelandic horses and riders during training, the WM2019 offers a very special opportunity. The newly built additional 250m oval track, which ensures ideal training conditions for the participating teams, will be freely visible to spectators during the event. Visitors can watch the future world champions from the fairgrounds as they prepare for the competitions and if you set up your camping vehicle in the trainings view area, you can even watch them training when you are still eating breakfast.

Throwback to WM2013: via Herning and Oirschot back to Berlin

Determined and with gentle hand: Frauke Schenzel

Frauke Schenzel and Gustur vom Kronshof are the reigning World Champions in five gait. As a result, Frauke has her permission to start in Berlin like the other world champions in sports test who won in 2017. However, it is not yet certain which horse she will take with her to the capital. The great thing about this problem: She only has to choose between Gustur, Gletting and Óðinn...

Frauke is a child of the Kronshof. Her parents Elke and Lothar Schenzel bought a former farm in the Lüneburger Heide (Lüneburg Heath) in 1978 and began to create the spacious equestrian, breeding and leisure facilities that the Kronshof represents today. Grown into the equestrian business from an early age, Frauke already gained numerous successes at tournaments and championships in the children's and youth classes.

“Moving on was obvious”

Very early on, Frauke knew she would continue with Kronshof after school.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the fairest of them all...?

Clear the stage, open the curtain! Welcome to the Stallions Night...

This question will be answered during the Stallions Night on 08 August, which will take place for the first time at a World Championship and which promises a top-class event to the audience of Icelandic horse enthusiasts. The Stallions Night offers ambitious breeders a unique platform to present ridden stallions to the visitors of WM2019. In contrast to the already very successful stud shows of the past World Championships, this event will offer in particular smaller breeders the opportunity to present their stallions individually.

We look forward to welcoming some of the continent's most renowned and talented stallions as well as new, rising stars of the stallion scene to Berlin.

In addition to the variety of the stallions in terms of performance, gaits and exterior, the stallions' free presentations will provide a varied program and amaze the spectators.

For the six-minute performances, both the oval track and the pace track are available in order to showcase the individual qualities of a stallion in the best possible way. In addition to the show, the information displayed on the video wall while entering the track as well as the presentation in the WM2019 magazine will also be a special highlight for each stallion. The flyer display will be available free of charge for all participating stallions on the entire Thursday at all information stands on the WM2019 grounds.

In the end, the spectator voting decides on the five stars of the evening, who will then shine and be honoured again on Saturday evening, 10.August, as part of the big evening show More Horsepower.

The nomination of the stallions is now possible. As before, large studs can have their own stage here. Starting with four horses, studs can present their own stallion collection or a stallion with offsprings at the Stallions Night.

We are looking forward to an unforgettable evening with many spectacular stallions and great emotions!
