Bringing future stars to Stockholm
Lövsta Future Challenge is a well-established Swedish concept for talent development aimed at young horses and U25 riders in both dressage and jumping. Our goal is to help Sweden reach its full potential internationally as an equestrian nation and to show the Swedish equestrian sport as a role model for others.
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. We not only lift the horses and riders but also the teams behind them, including; grooms, trainers, breeders, horse owners and sponsors. All are incredibly important for developing talent and keeping it in the country. Lövsta Future Challenge also strives to create forums where riders and equestrian professionals can exchange knowledge and work together towards a sport where the environment and horsemanship are central themes.
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 Stockholm Horse Week 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.
We will invite 20 showjumpingriders from 10 nations and 12 dressageriders from 10 nations. Each nation will select its most promising U25 riders who will be able to bring one horse each. The showjumping classes will be for both individuals and teams while the dressage classes only will be for individual contestants,
For the young dressage and showjumping riders the week in Stockholm will not only mean the opportunity to compete in an amazing arena but also the opportunity to meet other U25 riders and world´s top riders during different events.
