Patience and dedication, elegance and skill—these characteristics are just as indispensable in watchmaking as they are in equestrianism. All the more reason for Leinfelder Uhren München to be present at this year’s Pferd International horse show held in Munich from May 25 to 28. Inside the VIP tent close to the jumping course, the Munich-based watch manufacture resented the latest models from the Leinfelder Elysium collection—long with its sister brand Lang & Heyne from Dresden.
At the official welcome ceremony on Thursday, guests were treated to a special highlight: approximately 250 attendees were in with a chance to win one of the inimitable Leinfelder Meridian chronographs. A finely detailed engraving on the rotor of this €4000 wristwatch made this exceptional timepiece truly one of a kind. Proceeds from the event went to Felix Neureuther’s Fit4Future foundation.
70,000 people attended the Pferd International München, breaking yet another record. Hosted at the equestrian center Olympia-Reitanlage, the largest equestrian show of Southern Germany included several top-level dressage and show jumping events. In what is arguably the most demanding dressage competition worldwide, six-time Olympic gold medalist Isabell Werth from Germany outperformed all competitors, while Swiss Annina Züger won the Grand Prix of Bavaria. With roughly 200 exhibitors present, visitors had ample opportunity to learn all about the latest trends in equestrianism.
