The Longines Balve Optimum is one of Europe’s most popular equestrian tournaments. Every year, the world of equestrian sports meets at the Wocklum Castle in the Balver Orlebachtal. This year, the international horse show took place from 13 - 16 June 2019. The University of Applied Sciences (UE) was also represented and sponsored one of the coveted prizes.
On Saturday 15 June, the winner Hans Günther-Blum prevailed against his colleagues and won with his sports horse “Django Unchained T.”. He received the "Germany U25 Jumping Cup" of the Foundation "German Top Horse Sports".
Nadine Klösel, team leader of the sales team of the UE in Iserlohn, handed over the prize for the examination of the middle tour.
By chance, part of our team also met Federal Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen (CDU).
We congratulate all winners and participants on this wonderful event!
More impressions about the tournament are given by Nina Welz, a student of the degree course "Journalism and Business Communication" at the UE in Iserlohn, on Maerkzettel.de, a student online news portal.
