Friday 25 February

Dressage-lovers’ day and jumping enthusiasts’ evening.

On Friday morning, the dressage horses will enter the arena for the first time, and spectators will be treated to an entire day of dressage, with both the stars of the future and the absolute elite of the current riders. The Gothenburg Horse Show is the penultimate stop for the Western European League in the FEI DRESSAGE WORLD CUP™, and the afternoon will host one of the season’s most important Grand Prix classes so far.


With regard to jumping, the Western European League will be decided at Scandinavium, and in the evening the passage and piaff will make way for impressive oxers and triple combinations with the beginning of the weekend’s first Longines FEI JUMPING WORLD CUP™ class. The evening concludes with an exciting jumping class that will keep the entire audience glued to their seats.
