WEC Closing Ceremonies

I stood in this very arena 14 days ago at the sunrise of this 5th FEI World Equestrian Games and I shared with you my hopes and dreams that this global celebration of the horse would provide a platform for a new dawn for the horse world and you have proved us right even beyond our wildest dreams, and expectations.

Your welcome has been seen by this generation of horsemen and women and will be recorded in the chapters of equestrian history.

I say to you on behalf of all those who have basked in the warmth of your hospitality "Wir lieben Aachen".

You have been able to provide the substance and platform to make these Games possible, and I know that you will join me in saying that it is the athletes who have given it the breath of life and moulded its soul. Their performances in the arenas and their statesman like behaviour outside the arenas have been an example to all.
