Germany’s Matthias Otto-Erley is the event’s FEI Technical Delegate, assisted by Christian Struck (DEN).

Mike Etherington-Smith, who took this course over from Capt. Mark Phillips for the 2017 running, returns to design this year’s cross country tracks. He’s assisted this year by Australia’s Grant Johnston. The course builder at Luhmühlen is David Evans. German designer Marco Behrens will design the show jumping tracks for both divisions.

The Entries:

Luhmühlen also serves as the German National Championship in the CCI4*-S division, meaning there will be top competition in both the 4* and its 5* counterpart.

A small-but-mighty North American contingent is also settled in Germany and ready for the week ahead:

Canada’s Karl Slezak and Kirk Hoppner’s & his own Fernhill Wishes are rerouting here after retiring early on course at Badminton last month. For the U.S., Matt Flynn and Kathleen & Patrick Flynn & Merry Go Round Farm’s Wizzerd are also rerouting from Badminton, accompanied by Liz Halliday-Sharp with The Monster Partnership’s Cooley Quicksilver, Lauren Nicholson and Ms. Jacqueline Mars’ Vermiculus, and Will Coleman with two rides in the 4*-S (Hyperion Stud’s Chin Tonic HS and 2021 Aachen winner Off the Record).
