Eventing re-invented: “The Event Rider Masters is without a doubt the most exciting development in eventing that I’ve ever seen.” – Sir Mark Todd, Double Olympic Gold Medallist
The Event Rider Master was founded by horse owners and eventing pros out of the centre of the eventing sport. Riders from Great Britain and other sports professionals from this environment were involved in the background as well as in front of the camera. In doing so, they have contributed greatly to the development of this super-innovative series, in order to maintain and develop the presence of their sport and to give it a facelift. A modern look and an affinity for technical innovation allow to open up completely new audiences. The series was supported by young and established IT companies such as Equiratings and SAP. Data and statistics presented in an exciting and appealing way is standard for the ERM audience. Interactive apps provide extra entertainment.
The Event Rider Masters are an exciting chase for points and record prize money. At the end of each season an Event Rider Masters Champion will be rewarded. Four days competition reduced to two days, the best horses and riders in the world, all three phases of the competition – dressage, jumping and cross-country are streamed live and free worldwide on various channels, accessible to everyone.
ERM – the three letters also stand for setting the Event Rider and the horse in the focus, to present it to a wider audience. The tension rises as the competition progresses, the emotional level is high, the camera and interviewing reporters are always very close to the riders. “Kiss & Cry” Podium, live scoring, the protagonists change on the podium places, award ceremony immediately after the winner is known. The suspense remains high until the three best competitors, as in Formula 1, are finally allowed to start the champagne shower.
The series begins with the 1st stage of the international Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth Horse Trials. All six ERM venues in Belgium, England, France, Germany and Ireland offer spectacular settings for each stage and are renowned for hosting some of the most prestigious events in eventing sport.
