Participants, sponsors and visitors, everybody has a special feeling entering the showground at CHIO Aachen. Since many years the event is sold out long before it starts. The atmosphere, the entourage and the enthusiastic response from the crowd make the riders feel like riding at home.

With Tineke Bartels Jazz entered the arena in 2002 and the audience directly fell in love with the movements and talent of Jazz. In the Special they became the best Dutch combination that year.

In 2007 Jazz came back to the magical ground in Aachen, this time with Kirsten Beckers. The Grand Prix Special turned out to be the speciality of Broere Jazz. With no hesitation and with so much pleasure Jazz played with his audience who became his fans.

The KWPN wrote at their website:

Kirsten Beckers and the KWPN horse of the Year Broere Jazz showed their best test ever!
With a score of 72.28% in the Grand Prix Special they showed their perfect cooperation and harmony. “It went so easy. During the test I had the feeling that everything went so well and so easy, there was no moment that I felt I had to correct Jazz, I really enjoyed the complete ride from the beginning till the end”, said Kirsten.
