We are very privileged to announce as our Judge for the Baileys Horse Feeds sponsored British Breeders Network Championships for 2017, the extraordinarily experienced Judge, Rider and Trainer, Katrin Bürger.

Katrin Burger is a graduate in agricultural engineering, but was an early and passionate rider. She made an internship at Gestuet Birkhof, a jumping and dressage breeding station in the South of Germany and became later the Head of Gestuet Schlossacker also in the South and, in parallel with this busy career running a breeding and young horse training station, she was a consistently successful rider of young horses at the German Bundeschampionat. Her successful rides include many unforgettable names such as French Kiss, Sir Oldenburg. Sir Nymphenburg, Daktyllius, Sterntanzer and in more recent years Sir Solitaer, Santo Dottoro, Danzarino and many more besides. From three year old Materiale classes to Grand Prix, Katrin has trained, ridden and been decorated with success with these special animals.

Most formatively, she spent nearly ten years as the Vice Chairman of Breeding at the Oldenburg Verband with responsibilities in all aspects of breeding for Oldenburg worldwide. Her experience of Foal Championships, Stallion Licensing and young horse selection and judging is deep and wide. She has given one of the most interesting and compelling lectures at the FEI Young Horse Breeding Seminar with some clear ideas for the direction of the breeding, marketing and training of future international horses.

She has now returned to South Germany where, with her partner she rides and trains both people and horses and is actively involved in the training of pony riders.

We thank her for joining us at Moreton Morrell on 9th September 2017 for our Baileys Horse Feeds Futurity Championships for Dressage and Showjumping and the Qualification and Finals of the Great Brutish Mare & Foal Show Series.
