    World Cup equestrianism

    by Sjalen Updated Mar 6, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Göteborg is the place where World Cup showjumping first started thanks to some entrepreneur equestrians who talked Volvo into helping them. Since the 70s, the Scandinavium arena has been packed with horses and riders every year around Easter. Later on, a whole equestrian fair has been established in the adjacent trade fair which has all things equestrian for sale but also hosts clinics with famous horse folk. You can buy tickets for the whole lot (and all days) or just a couple of competitions. Your choice but book early as this is an extremely popular event and even the riders say they rarely have so much fun compared to other arenas. The atmosphere is very unique. No polite hand clapping her but instead, everyone shouts loudly for their favourites. Imagine the decibels as Rodrigo Pessoa (the girls' favourite) enters the arena...
