Pleased to meet you: Karli, 2.30 meters tall, always jolly and the official mascot of the World Equestrian Games 2006, he will draw the attention to the World Championships in seven equestrian disciplines in many performances leading up to WEG. One of the first performances was on Saturday evening: he not only gave the starting signal for the outdoor bet on the ZDF show "Wetten, dass....?", he also took care of a great spirit among the hunderds of spectators who were present at the shoot.
"In Karli," according to Klaus Pavel, President of the WEG Organisors, Aachen Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. (ALRV), "we found a great sympathetic character. His happy appearance is contagious."
All information on the World Equestrian Games Aachen 2006 mascot can be found on the internet: www.aachen2006.de. You can see the first pictures of his television performance as well as Karli's history, and Karlis can be bought for Christmas at the shop.
The happy horse's mane and tail have seven colours: "Every colour," explains Michael Mronz, member and spokesman of the OC Aachen 2006, "represents a discipline."
Half a million visitors are expected to attend the title competitions in the seven equestrian disciplines next year. They can not only look forward to first class sport, but also to a sympathetic mascot.
