With this competition AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG, as a title sponsor of the Oldenburg tournament, places particular emphasis on the support of young horse riders and has provided the prize of 10,000 euros.
Title defender lying in wait
The title defender is lying in wait: Maurice Tebbel (Emsbüren), winner of last year's AGRAVIS Future Prize, is going into the final round in third position. Before the deciding three assessments in Oldenburg, Jana Wargers (Emsdetten) is leading, followed by Gerrit Nieberg (Sendenhorst) and last year's winner, Tebbel.
Great sport in Oldenburg
The K+K Cup in Münster in January was the first stop of the AGRAVIS Future Prize 2016. After the Hardenberg Burgturnier tournament in May in Nörten-Hardenberg, the big final of the Future Prize is, for the first time, being held at the AGRAVIS Cup in Oldenburg. Here the agricultural trade and service business with its headquarters in Münster and Hanover is the title sponsor for the third time. "The previous two years have shown us great sport in the EWE Arena," Member of the Board of Directors, Dirk Bensmann, said with excitement. On the last weekend in November, both riders and horses will be fighting it out in dressage and jumping of various levels of difficulty for rosettes and prize money.
Support of young people is a component of the corporate culture
The AGARVIS Future Prize, in its third year, is aimed at the stars of tomorrow, show jumpers and riders under the age of 25. Supporting young, talented people is a solid component of the AGRAVIS corporate culture. It is for that reason that the company, as an employer, invests so much in the basic and advanced training and further development of its employees. AGRAVIS transfers this commitment to its equestrian sport support.
Markus Merschformann supports the concept
The AGRAVIS Future Prize concept is supported by the national coach of the juniors and young riders, Markus Merschformann, who has the potential of the succeeding riding generation well in sight and who further developed the points series together with the company.
Upgraded Future Prize
With the expansion of the series from two to three tournaments and the offer of a prize money reward, AGRAVIS has clearly upgraded the Future Prize. The person with the best points after the three tournaments wins 5,000 euros with second and third place winning 3,000 and 2,000 euros, respectively. "We believe that it is money well invested," emphasises Dirk Bensmann.
"To allow the AGRAVIS Future Prize final to take place at the AGRAVIS Cup and thereby simultaneously bring it home was a component of the further development of this youth competition for horse jumpers," explains Bensmann. The first winner of the new, three-part tournament series will be honoured on the large stage of the Oldenburg tournament on 27 November.
