The World Championships are an opportunity to experience the biggest stars in breeding and sports. Horses and riders will travel from all over the world to compete for the medals. The World Championships are held every two years, and both horses and riders have to go through a demanding selection process to be allowed to represent their country at the World Championships.There will be horses on the tracks from morning to evening, and there will be plenty of opportunity to watch the beautiful dancing tölt horses, the lightning-fast pace horses and the fine selected breeding horses at the World Championships.
And the World Championships are more than horses. Around the tracks are an entire festival site with entertainment, lectures, shopping and food stalls. There is life in the square almost 24 hours a day!
Come and join us. We know you will love it!
