Arno Gego has passed away

The equestrian world has lost another legend. The respected show jumping course designer, teacher and mentor, Arno Gego passed away. The German master designed courses all over the world, but Aachen was his mainstay, where he laid out, among others, the routes for the 1986 show jumping world championships. He devised challenges for horses and riders that made them better. He passed his knowledge and perspective to others at his Aachen School of Course Design. Arno Gego was always very involved with Horse International and L’Année Hippique. We always had a great cooperation regarding events and we will always be very grateful for that. We wish Christa, family and friends a lot of strength.
