For the second time Stockholm, Sweden will take its place on the LGCT global circuit. Alongside the main competitions of LGCT and GCL, the concept of Stockholm Horse Week will run with a focus to inspire, broaden and create a celebration with the people around equestrian sport. An international dressage competition will be held as well as an international youth competition in dressage and show jumping.
Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, encompasses 14 islands and more than 50 bridges on an extensive Baltic Sea archipelago. The cobblestone streets and ochre-colored buildings of Gamla Stan (the old town) are home to the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum, which focuses on the Nobel Prize. Ferries and sightseeing boats shuttle passengers between the islands.
Elite horses and riders in show jumping will attend the Longines Global Champions Tour of Stockholm 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.
