Since 2006 Horses & Dreams has been more than a pure sporting event and also adopted the concept of partnering with a new host country every year. It adds a unique, colourful and culturally diverse atmosphere to the event. The show and entertainment program of the gala show is famous for creating unique experiences and allows spectators to immerse themselves in mesmerising performances and images that reflect the unique character of the chosen partner country.

Conceived by Ulli Kasselmann, the equestrian biathlon is already a tradition on Saturday evening at Horses & Dreams. The challenge for the participants is to jump clear, sprint to the shooting range and be a perfect marksman with a laser rifle – and on top of that the clock is ticking. Two penalty seconds are charged for jumping or shooting errors.
Sparkasse Osnabrück has been a partner of the equestrian biathlon for many years. The fun competition kicks off the show evening of Horses & Dreams. Many big jumping stars have taken part in the past, Andreas Kreuzer, Phillip Weißhaupt, Ulrich Kirchhoff, Vladimir Beletzki, Tim Rieskamp-Goedeking, Laura Klaphake and Justine Tebbel.
For the past four years, the traditional Six-Bar competition has formed the end of the show evening. Horses and riders must jump four consecutive obstacles. It sounds quite easy, but regularly take the audience’s breath away, as the height of the last obstacle is increased after each clear round until only the winner is left.
We are pleased that our partner Jaguar Land Rover Germany presents the Six-Bar competition.
Admission to the Gala Show is included in the day ticket!
