Vejer de La Frontera, Spain – February 16, 2023 – It’s showtime for showjumping! It still feels like winter in the North Hemisphere but it sure feels like outdoor season has already begun for showjumping due to the high number of events taking place this week. The sands of the Emirati desert will echo the hoofbeats of horses throughout the week during H.H. Ruler of Sharjah Cup CSI 5*-W & CSI 2*, the highest-rated attraction this week.

Despite having received 4* ratings and taking into consideration the level of participants, riders and horses, and proximity to their homes, two major horse shows in Europe will feature five-star riders and their flying beasts taking to the skies. With about 3700 horses at the venue, the second week of the traditional Andalucía Sunshine Tour CSI 4* is held outdoors under “warmer” weather while the Zangersheide International CSI 4* takes place indoor at Sentower Park.

There are many other great events all over the world, please refer to the list below with links to more information about each of them. Stay tuned for our Live Streaming post, with links to live streaming feed of the prancing and dancing! Enjoy.
