The world’s best dressage!

  0 Comments

Sweden International Horse Show, SIHS,  presents a new dressage competition with the world’s top riders:

– Top Stars Dressage Final.

Charlotte Dujardin, Carl Hester and Isabell Werth are three of the top riders attending Stockholm and Friends Arena in what seems to be one of the biggest investments in the event’s history – The Top Stars Dressage Final.

– Nine out of ten riders are now in place and I think the competition is now in the same category as an Olympic final. But the last rider I keep for my self a little longer, Swedish rider  Patrik Kittel, responsible for the invites, says.

Top Stars Dressage Finals has 10 top ranked competitors and a concept that brings the stars closer to the audience. Swedish top star rider Patrik Kittel is the creator behind the new concept and he is notably enthusiastic:

– It’s going to be truly amazing beeing able to see these top riders in Stockholm. This is unique and I’m very happy to be part of this new concept of our sport.

Also President of the SIHS Ulf Rosengren is notably exited over the new dressage concept:

-Moving away from the world cup allow us to more freely create what we think is a the form of competition that takes the dressage into the future and to a whole new level.
