The one-hour program presents a compelling look at the annual CHIO Aachen – World Equestrian Festival in Germany. Aachen has been a major fixture on the international equestrian calendar for over one hundred years.

“With the ongoing economic downturn, with entertainment and recreational costs soaring and with so many people out of work, it was important that we create an opportunity for this program to be seen and enjoyed by people from all walks of life,” says Producer/Director Melvin Cox.

“In presenting a look at the most storied of international equestrian tournaments, ‘The Spirit of Aachen’ speaks to our natural desires for renewal, order, excellence and success – while celebrating the horses, riders, drivers and vaulters who compete at Aachen. The documentary also carries strong undercurrents that speak to creativity, perseverance and multiculturalism,” says Cox. “It is an uplifting story that we can all embrace...”

“The Spirit of Aachen” will be shown in the CBC Auditorium (Room A106) on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), at 11:30 a.m. and at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, April 17th. The UNLV screenings will coincide with the Rolex FEI World Cup Finals in Jumping and Dressage, April 15 – 19, at the university's storied Thomas & Mack Center.

The program will also be screened in the Fifth Third Theater at the Kentucky Horse Park at 1:30 p.m. and at 3:15 p.m. on Friday, April 24th, during the 2009 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. Please Note: Admittance to the Kentucky Horse Park will require a ticket to the Rolex event.

A Texas premiere will accent Super Ride VII: The 2009 United States Equestrian Drill Championship (USEDC).

The documentary will be shown on Friday evening, June 26th, at approximately 8:00 p.m. - immediately following the Second USEDC Ride of Champions (SportsQuest Cup) competition – in the VIP area (above the main arena) at the Texas Rose Horse Park.

Co-sponsors of the series include: e-questrians.com, SportsQuest.tv and the United States Equestrian Drill Championship.
