New Dates for Sweden International Horse Show

 

2020.06.10.99.99 Events New Dates for Sweden Int. Horse Show SIHS Roland Thunholm 2Stockholm, Sweden – June 10, 2020 – Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, the Sweden International Horse Show Organising Committee has decided to postpone this year’s event. New dates are set to February 18 to 21, 2021.

It is with regret we have had to make this decision, but it is also a good thing that we are able to reach the conclusion to postpone this year´s show so early in the process. We now have the best possible conditions to plan for a great event. We’re determined to give our audience, as well as all of our riders and artists a truly memorable horse show, says Event Director Christin Ericsson.

Sweden International Horse Show has since the start in 1993 taken place by late November and early December. Instead of a show normally filled with Christmas spirit, this special February edition will offer other crowd pleasers. The core concept of the event remains the same: to offer international competitions and shows of highest possible quality.

– Like the rest of the international top riders, I really long to get started competing at top international level again. Riders will stand in line to participate at Friends Arena in February. I know we will have a fantastic time when we finally get to meet the great Swedish audience again, says Malin-Baryard Johnsson (SWE), Sports Director at Sweden International Horse Show.

With the decision to postpone this year’s edition of the show, 2021 will host not only one but two Sweden International Horse Show events – the upcoming in February 18 to 21 and the original 2021 event traditionally set to November 25 to 28.

All of you who have already purchased tickets to the postponed November event are encouraged to hold on to your tickets, since these will be valid for the new show dates in February. Everyone with a ticket will be contacted by e-mail for confirmation.

På grund av den rådande situationen med coronakrisen, och för att kunna genomföra evenemanget på bästa tänkbara sätt,har organisationen bakom Sweden International Horse Show fattat beslut om att flytta fram evenemanget två och en halv månad till den 18-21 februari 2021.

Sweden International Horse Show har, sedan starten 1993, alltid genomförts under första adventshelgen. Evenemanget i februari 2021 kommer därmed att bli något unikt då tomtar och julklappar kommer att få ge plats åt andra stämningshöjare. Konceptet blir dock detsamma – internationell tävling och shownummer i världsklass.

Under 2021 kommer det därmed att genomföras två upplagor av Sweden International Horse Show – dels den 18-21 februari och dels traditionsenligt under första advent den 25-28 november.

Alla som redan köpt biljett till årets upplaga av SIHS rekommenderas att hålla hårt i sin biljett då den gäller till evenemanget i februari. Alla biljettköpare kommer att kontaktas via mejl.
