The Championships are officially opened

Spectacular Opening Ceremony and nice weather the first day of the Longines FEI European Champonships 2017

The first day of the competition has now ended. It’s been a fantastic day with wonderful weather and many great athletes. Sweden has already won a bronze medal, through Louise Etzner Jakobsson. The rest of the team did also performe at a top level.

There has been a lot of activity around the exhibitors in the Eurohorse Shopping Village and nice performances in the paddock.  Three of the Swedish teams have arrived and all their horses have passed the veterinary check up.

The day ended with a lovely opening ceremony with over 120 horses and a full arena.

Welcome tomorrow!
