From October 21 to 23, the RWTH University Sports Center welcomed student riders from all over Germany at the German University Equestrian Championships 2022. The whole weekend there was a terrific atmosphere in the Albert Vahle Hall on the CHIO grounds. The organizer was the general German University Sports Federation. The 70 participants were cheered on by their supporters.


Only a few months ago, no one would have expected that the DHM Riding would take place in Aachen. After an originally scheduled host had dropped out, the RWTH University Sports Center (HSZ) agreed to take over the organization. With a preparatory period of only eight weeks, the team of the HSZ together with the student equestrian group succeeded in organizing an all-around successful tournament.

The event began on Friday morning with an opening ceremony. Afterwards, the participants competed in the disciplines dressage and jumping. In the final on Sunday, the two best riders competed against each other in the disciplines dressage and jumping in advanced class. The three best teams competed in team dressage and team jumping in elementary class. At the subsequent award ceremony, Julia Thöne from the University of Paderborn was honored for her performance in the dressage competition. In the jumping competition, Jasper Robiné for WG Darmstadt came out on top. In the combined classification, Celine Alexander for WG Dortmund took first place. The team classification was won by WG Hamburg for the third time in a row. Julia Kamp competed for Aachen as an individual. She made it to the second round of the jumping discipline and placed 10th.
