Recently it became known that the Axel Johnson Group is no longer sponsor of the World Dressage Masters. The question raised was if a successor for sponsoring the series could be found. Now the organizers were able to disclose that the Vian group takes over as sponsor. In 2015, the series will be called Vian Group WDM. Over the last ten years, the LLC Vian Group was organizer of a large number of international dressage and showjumping tournaments in the Ukraine, thereby making a name for themselves. In 2010, Dutch dressage rider Anky van Grunsven became trainer of the Vian Group. Besides the Ukrainian company, the Nürnberger Versicherungsgruppe, Jerich International and Eurosport still are partners of the series.
