Dressage and Jumping with the Stars International Judges
PSI – Dressage and Jumping with the Stars and Equestrian Victoria is pleased to announce our International “Stars” for the Australian Young Horse Championships.
Young German dressage rider Evelyn Eger works as a professional rider at Hof Kasselmann in Hagen and has been competing very successfully in the Under 25 and senior Grand Prix division. She first started out as an eventing and jumping rider before switching to dressage. In 2020 and 2021 she competed on the prestigious Piaff Forderpreis circuit with Whitley and PCH Flynn and in 2022 she successfully campaigned young horse Global Power, small tour horses Darjeeling and Queen Lakshmi, as well as Grand Prix horses Tabledance and Westminster at international shows. This December she and Westminster placed highly in the CDI5* Grand Prix at Frankfurt, competing against the likes of Isabell Werth, Patrik Kittel and Dorothee Schneider. Eger is ranked 49th in the FEI Dressage World Ranking List.
German show jumper Andreas Kreuzer was already internationally successful as a young rider and took part in no less than four European Championships. From 2008 to 2012 he was a rider at the Schockemöhle stable and brought the well-known stallion Chacco-Blue to the top of the world. In 2014 he started his own business. Cutting back on his own sporting career in recent years he acted as a talent scout for riders and horses. He is a very sought-after trainer to many young riders, including the 2021 European Champion YR, Matthis Westendarp. In late 2022 he joined team Schockemöhle again to take care of the training, marketing and management of Schockemöhle-bred horses and riders. He continues to run his own business.
