Team GB - Germany International (Sept 4-9 2018)
Tentpegging Deutschland will host an international competition at Crawinkel, in the region of Gotha from September 4-9 2018.
We have been invited to send a GB team to compete against the hosts. The competition takes place alongside an event hosted by the German Cavalry Association.
The team will fly into Frankfurt before heading over to the competition venue where they will meet their horses. They will also get to ride their horses in Thüringeti nature reserve national park.
We will keep you updated on the team's progress and wish them the best of luck!
