Celebrities up close
Celebrities up close is the guiding slogan of EQUITANA meeting at euro-star in the centre of the new fair hall 3. On the large stage there will be stars in the flesh four times a day, Stars from the riding sports scene, who are well-known far beyond the borders of Germany. Two current Olympic winners are already firmly on the euro-star guest list: Ulla Salzgeber, who returned form Sydney highly decorated with team gold and individual bronze, and Otto Becker who with the grey stallion Cento played a decisive role in acquiring victory for the German team in the Olympics show jumping competition. In the individual evaluation Otto Becker just missed a medal by a hairs-breadth and landed in fourth place.
Also Helena Weinberg, the worlds most successful equestrienne, her husband Peter and four-times Olympic champion Nicole Uphoff are expected at the EQUITANA meeting at euro-star.
