Lövsta future challenge


Lövsta Future Challenge has a vision: to develop the equestrian sport in Sweden and create more opportunities for Grand Prix-riders in jumping and dressage. Show jumping will be represented during Gothenburg Horse Show together with LFC Jumping.  

LFC Jumping is divided in two different classes, one for young horses and one for U25-riders and both finals are during Gothenburg Horse Show.  


The Swedish 6-year old horses have two opportunities to qualify to the final during the fall; at Champion of the Youngsters and Breeders Trophy. Ten Swedish young horses, that just have turned seven, will get the chance to ride in the final at Gothenburg Horse Show against ten invited international 7-year old horses. The concept is to give the young horses routine on an international arena yet also a chance to compete against international horses in the same age group. In 2019, for the second year in a row, there will be an eleventh ticket for the stallion who wins SWB Stallion Trophy.  


In 2018/2019, the fifth season of Lövsta Future Challenge Jumping U25 will be hosted. Many of the previous LFC U25-riders like Erica Swartz, Jonna Ekberg and Evelina Tovek have had international success, which proves what a great concept the LFC U25 is. This is also one of the goals of Lövsta Future Challenge - to inspire and develop young talents towards an international career.  

The five U25-riders that are invited to Gothenburg Horse Show are born between 2003 and 1994. They have gathered ranking points from three opportunities during the fall and winter. In Scandinavium they get a chance to compete against the international riders in all classes, except for the World Cup and special classes. The rider who is best during the meeting at Gothenburg Horse Show wins LFC Jumping U25. You can recognize the riders by the green armband they are wearing.
