Deutsche Bank and CHIO Aachen
As a partner of the CHIO Aachen since 1955, Deutsche Bank presents a highlight of the demanding art of dressage, the internationally renowned Deutsche Bank Prize
Deutsche Bank, the main sponsor, has been supporting the world's most prestigious equestrian event since 1955, making it the Bank's longest-standing commitment to the world of sports.
In 1980, the Aachen Grand Prix de Dressage of Aachen, which had been held annually for 25 years and sponsored by Deutsche Bank, was renamed the Deutsche Bank Prize, Grand Prix Dressage of Aachen, Grand Prix Freestyle CDIO. And in 1999, Deutsche Bank Stadium was created as a unique setting for dressage riding.
Since 2014, a new grandstand has provided 6,300 spectators with the opportunity to watch one of the most important dressage competitions, in which the world’s elite riders vie for the highest endowed dressage prize ever.

For the forth time in a row, the exceptional dressage rider Isabell Werth won the Deutsche Bank Prize 2021 at the CHIO Aachen. The record rider celebrated her 14th triumph in Deutsche Bank Stadium in Aachen.
With a technically and choreographically superlative freestyle routine on her 11-year-old stallion "Quantaz", Isabell Werth got 88,335 % and relegated fellow dressage riders Dinja van Liere and Charlotte Fry to second and third place.
“Since 1955, Deutsche Bank has shared our passion for equestrian sports. Together we have not only accompanied the CHIO Aachen, but also helped develop dressage a little further. Thanks to the commitment of this exceptional partner, this sport, which stands for partnership and precision like no other, has been given a spectacular setting with Deutsche Bank Stadium.”
President of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e. V.
