AACHEN, Germany, July 27, 2015–An app for the European Championships of dressage, driving, jumping, reining and vaulting for Apple and Android smartphones and pads has been released by the organizers of the Aachen event that begins Aug. 11.
The free app jointly developed with the German software company SAP is available in the Play Store and in the App Store under the name “Aachen 2015.”
The app contains maps of the show grounds and competition stadiums, biographies of riders, the program, start and result lists, directions and parking as well as games.
An updated version of the highly popular “Public Judging” for dressage and vaulting competitions that was introduced at the Aachen CHIO last year will be available right before the start of the Europeans.
The championships open with a pageant in the Main Stadium the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 11.
A newly developed app for the CICO3* Event that is not part of the championships is being launched by the Aachen organizers and SAP in collaboration with NetAachen, the official communications provider, to display information from the cross-country competition in real-time.
Dressage begins Wednesday, Aug. 12 with the first of two days of Nations Cup with the Grand Prix Special scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15 and the Grand Prix Freestyle for Sunday, Aug. 16.
Dressage will be in the 40,000-seat Main Stadium as it was at the 2006 World Games.
