Lövsta Future Challenge

Lövsta Future Challenge International in Gothenburg 2017

Lövsta Future Challenge is a well-established Swedish concept for talent development aimed at young horses and U25 riders in both dressage and jumping. During the Longines FEI European Championships in Gothenburg 2017 we make the concept international. 32 of the best European U25-riders in showjumping and dressage will compete in the championship arena Ullevi in Lövsta Future Challenge International.

Through our national series, we give young horses and U25 riders the arena and conditions to advance towards the international top sport. In cooperation with the country’s top competition organizers, we offer the best combinations of riders and horses to gain the routine and experience that are needed.

With a common vision for the importance of giving U25 riders the best possible conditions to develop on their way towards the international top sport, Lövsta Future Challenge, in collaboration with FEI European Championships 2017, is now inviting the best U25 riders from across Europe to join us.

– Our hope is that this initiative will give riders the opportunity to gain valuable experience, make new contacts and to showcase themselves to both current and future sponsors, says Emelie Broman Tegelberg, project manager of Lövsta Future Challenge International.

We will invite 20 showjumping riders from 10 nations and 12 dressage riders from 10 nations. Each nation will select its most promising U25 rider who will be allowed to bring one horse with them. The showjumping classes will be for both individuals and teams while the dressage classes will only be for individual contestants.
– For the young dressage and showjumping riders the week in Gothenburg will not only mean the opportunity to compete in an amazing championship arena, but also provide the opportunity to meet other U25 riders and the world’s top riders during different events, says Emelie Broman Tegelberg.
