A continued collaboration between Lövsta Future Challenge and Stockholm Horse Week secures the young talents' presence at Longines Global Champions Tour Stockholm. The prestigious event will take place June 17-19 at the historic Olympic Stadium.
- "It is a great pleasure to once again arrange the final of LFC Jumping Young Horses and support an international U25 competition in Sweden. Our vision is to enable young talents to realise their dreams and to give the younger horses a learning journey of the highest quality. I can't think of a better place to give them just that than in one of the world's most beautiful and historic arenas, the Stockholm Olympic Stadium," says Antonia Ax:son Johnson, owner of Lövsta Stuteri and founder of Lövsta Future Challenge.
Lövsta Future Challenge, in collaboration with Stockholm Horse Week, will organize both the final for the young jumping horses as well as international classes for U25 riders from Europe's strongest nations. During the 2022 event, twenty U25 riders will be invited, of which four spots are reserved for Swedish riders.
Eleven pre- qualified Swedish seven-year-old horses will get the chance to compete against 20 international horses.
- "We look forward to finally being able to welcome the audience back to Longines Global Champions Tour Stockholm. We are both happy and proud of the continued collaboration with Lövsta Future Challenge, which creates great addition to the program and gives the young talent a fantastic opportunity to be part of an event at the highest level," says Johan Pagerup, CEO Stockholm Horse Week.
The event brings together the world's best riders in Stockholm to compete individually in the prestigious Longines Global Champions Tour and the team competition Global Champions League. Stockholm Horse Week complements the program and the collaboration with Lövsta Future Challenge is fully in line with the organizer's vision of being an event with a focus on young talent and top sports.
