LGCT Stockholm: The Countdown is ON!

LGCT Stockholm: The Countdown is ON!

The countdown to the Longines Global Champions Tour of Stockholm is on. With just over a month to go until show jumping superstars return to Sweden from 18 - 20 June anticipation for the second LGCT Stockholm continues to build. 

Alongside the main competitions of LGCT and GCL, Stockholm Horse Week will also run with a focus to inspire, broaden and create a celebration with the people around equestrian sport. A highlight of the event will be the Lövsta Future Challenge International U25 Jumping, where young talent will have the chance to shine on centre stage. The exciting partnership with Lövsta Future Challenge means the LFC Young Horses Final will also be held at LGCT Stockholm for the first time which will allow some of the best young 7-year-old Swedish horses to compete against International stars of the future. 

It's guaranteed to be three days of spectacular sport as elite horses and riders in show jumping will attend at the City’s historic Olympic Stadium. The arena has a strong heritage in equestrian sport dating back over 100 years, including the Olympic Games in 1912 and 1956 and the World Equestrian Games in the summer of 1990.

Emotional after his extraordinary win in 2019 Peder Fredricson admitted: "It feels like one of my biggest wins. I am so, so happy, it is a great feeling winning in front of this home crowd in Sweden. It is the best crowd in the world - thank you for coming here today. I am really happy we have another great show in Sweden and I am really grateful for this."

With plenty of home heroes to cheer for, fans will be able to witness a true battle of the world's best live on GCTV, with top international and local riders competing for the win in Sweden. All the action will be streamed live on GCTV with expert commentary and analysis ensuring show jumping fans across the world can follow their favourite riders and horses throughout the event.

My vision is clear. Only the best for the best.
