She was one of Europe’s most successful Youth riders throughout the past years – after a bittersweet win at the Q18 in Youth Trail, Laura Weber said goodbye to her Youth career. From now on, the 19-year-old will fully pursue her career as a trainer of allround horses.

They are two among hundreds of Americans: Zoe Long and Lilly Görgen will compete at the 2018 ApHC Youth World Show. Zoe has competed at this show in 2017 (find our article here), Lilly will be part of the Exchange Program that is organized by the ApHC. This will be her first time at the World Show.

What is it like to come to one of the largest shows in Europe, the VWB Bavarian Championship? What is it like to be in Kreuth for the first time? Compete in the Ostbayernhalle? While some of us might vividly remember their first time in the big arena, others have never competed there. Maybe because they never got the chance, maybe because they were afraid.
